About the property

3 A/C Bedrooms, with private baths and balconies, Oceanfront private patio



There is no finer place to vacation then Rincon, PR. From surfing and snorkeling to hiking and golfing, Rincon offers it all. Along with the multitude of daytime activities, Rincon also has an active nightlife, with many oceanfront bars, and restaurants serving freshly caught seafood. If dining in is your preference, the close proximity of a local fish markets (just a walk away) and grocery store (within two miles) allow for you to create your own oceanfront dining experience on your private patio.

Every air-conditioned bedroom has its own private en suite bathroom and private balcony, making this house perfect for couples to have a romantic getaway or for family retreats with the children. Wake to the sunrise from over the mountains in the east, and finish the day watching the beautiful sunset melt into the blue Caribbean Sea. While here you will not want to miss a sunset, and almost every room provides a view of it. Our preferred way of watching is on a beach chair with a drink in our hand .

This private luxury Rincon vacation rental is an elegant and comfortable home directly on the CARIBBEAN SEA! Nothing beats falling asleep to the soothing sound of gentle waves, and in our comfortable beds you will sleep soundly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After years of booking vacation homes online (including some mistakes and bad choices) I have become very adept at judging websites and their representations, photos, and narratives. Pelican Pass was a standout during my search and ultimately proved to be the perfect place for my wife and our 2 friends to spend a long weekend celebrating my 50th birthday. The house matched the online photos and even exceeded the charm, comfort, and ambience that we anticipated before arriving. The process of booking, arriving, and departing was simple and smooth, and the Owner was always responsive to any questions we had. We hope to be back, but this time with our we can share the experience with them!

We had a wonderful vacation at this place. Very comfortable, spacious, clean and right next to the beach. It was also a safe and tranquil neighborhood. Thank you for sharing your Villa with us!!

Perfect beach house for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Pelican Pass. The home was spacious for our family of 6 and it was right on a beautiful beach. The home was equipped with kitchen basics and some extras that other vacationers have left behind-sunscreen, pantry items, Bluetooth speaker-that was a nice touch. The beds were very comfortable, with each bedroom having its own bathroom and balcony!

The beach was fairly private even though there was public access nearby. The waves were very calm (July) for our little ones and perfect for the teenager and adults to snorkel. We loved staying here and would choose it again!

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of five absolutely loved our stay at Pelican Pass. We debated about staying in this particular house because of the cost, but it was definitely worth it. We went in April and most days had the entire beach to ourselves. So peaceful. The next door villa had a family but they were not on the beach at the same times we were, so almost seemed like we didn't have neighbors. The house was gorgeous and had everything we needed. There was no air on the first floor but was not needed. All bedrooms had air conditioning for a perfect night sleep, and 2 bedrooms were ocean front with the soothing sound of waves all night. We would definitely go back.

Excellent stay, the property is well maintained and gorgeous location. This Villa was exactly as advertised and more! Everything in perfect working condition, clean and fully furnished. But most of all - location, location, location! Being steps from the beach was paradise!

Comfortable and Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

Getting in a little after sunset, I was excited to come into this house I dreamed of, and open up all of the doors to the beach and the ocean! After opening the gate to the driveway (neighborhood is nice, but all gated up for safety, and kind of in the middle of nothing - scary at night), and getting into the lockbox, I ran in and figured out how to open the triple locked doors to the patio and opened everything up to see the end of the light of day. Boy, was that a mistake! We got bitten up for the rest of the night with mosquitos! Between that and the nocturnal very loud bird "beeping" all night long, I thought our time was going to be terrible! The next morning, waking up to the gorgeous weather, beach and waves, being able to open up the house with no bug issues, and getting to know the island a little, we calmed down and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The villa is very well equipped. The beds are amazingly comfortable, and I loved having a beautiful bath to every bedroom. The groundskeeper was always available if we needed him, but we never did. Although the villa felt like it was in the middle of nowhere that night, it was only a few minutes drive to the quaint downtown, and 10 minutes to the lighthouse and surrounding beaches. It took us a while to appreciate Rincon, but when we left we all loved the quaintness, beauty, people and food (especially the fish tacos at Steps Beach!) We would DEFINITELY stay again at Villa 1! We ate on the patio later in our stay, with no mosquito bites whatsoever! I guess our timing was just terrible for the door opening! But that BIRD! At least he stopped sometime in the middle of the night.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, it was very honest and we appreciate that. When we stay at the Villas we usually close the doors when we go to sleep, but other than that they stay open and mosquitoes have not bothered us. There could have been a series of rain the past few days before you got there. The noise that sounds like a bird is the Coqui' frog. Native to Puerto Rico, they are tiny frogs with a loud mating call at night. I'm so glad that you were so happy with the house and of course Rincon. Such a great town, with lots going on.
