Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 10

Located on Rincon's lively side. Our A-Frame style beach house sits high up in the almond trees Just down the path to the poolbar/sushi bar. Walking distance to several restaurants, beach bars, gift shops, coffee shops and bakeries.

Most of our guest come to surf but there is a lot to do in Rincon even if surfing is not your thing. No Passport needed for US travelers! We have four rentals surrounding the Pool/Sushi Bar and we serve sushi from 5pm till10pm and show surf flicks on a giant screen outside in a jungle beach setting where you can mingle with other guest and visitors. See you in Rincon!

Most of our guest come to surf but more and more travelers are coming to Rincon do enjoy things other than surfing. Rincon has so much to offer and is a great place to base while making day trips to attractions around Puerto Rico.

Cool place next door to the freshest sushi

  • 4 of 5

Strait up this is a no frills stay. Bring butter,sugar etc...because there are no left overs. The bar/restaurant does not effect your stay and you get to use the pool. Walking distance to night life and SURF....

Back again - still wonderful as before

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here a few years ago and we came back to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. It was just as wonderful as I remembered. The house is off the main road but still close to everything. The Pool Sushi bar has some of the best food I've ever had. The walk to the beach takes literally 1.5 minutes. The house is comfortable with a hammock on every level. We left our things out to dry on the deck and it was very safe. I would go back any day.

Unbeatable location, terrible management

  • 2 of 5

PROS

The location is terrific. The house's upper level and loft are iconic and the location itself which overlooks a lot of the surrounding jungle can't be beat. Right down from the house is a sushi bar with some of the best sushi I've ever had. Another 30 seconds past the sushi bar is Pools Beach, which can have some good surfing depending on the wind (watch out for sea urchins). It is located within walking distance from many of Rincon's bars and a short drive from a great reef break at Maria's Beach.

CONS

Once you give the landlord your $$$, they could really care less about you. We requested maid service ($25 a day), and they sent over the daughter of the landlord, who had no idea what she was supposed to clean or not. After we discussed it with her, she explained that she'd send ANOTHER person over who could clean for us, and they never came. The downstairs did not have hot water, and it took them three days to fix that. The upstairs did not have hand towels in the bathrooms, and we were not provided bath towels until a day after we asked. The downstairs did not have working television -- while you shouldn't be watching TV in this beautiful place, it's worth mentioning that it did not work at all. The quality of the wifi was poor to the point where it wasn't worth using. They had an extender in the house though it didn't work for most of our stay and we had to resort to using LTE on our phones.

Because our flight wasn't until 3am the next day, they were however nice enough to let us stay in the lower two units closest to the beach. While both of those places were nice, albeit basic, if the tradewinds died at any time during the day, the only thing that you could smell on the porch of both units was the incredibly strong scent of seafood waste (the dumpster from the sushi bar was right next to both units).

In all, the location was awesome and allowed us tons of adventures in the nearby town, but the place itself had very limited amenities for the price that we paid and the management was incredibly nonresponsive once we gave them our money. While maybe this is the quality of service that should be expected in this area, it was certainly lower than I expected for the price point.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This place was an amazing find! The location, the people, the vibes were all perfect. The entire place comfortably sleeps 10 people, we had enough bath towels for everyone, the washer and dryer were super helpful with that, we were able to cook food for everyone the entire time of our stay, the A/C units all worked perfectly, and the balconies and hammocks were perfect for everyone to hangout on. Everything we needed was within walking distance and the large supermarket, Econo, was only a short drive away. We had a large group of 10 people all surfers or adventurers between the ages of 24 and 29 so if people wanted to walk around to do their own thing or go for a quick surf sesh it was always easy to find them no matter what. Everyone was either Pool Bar out front, or at Tamboo up the street, or Casa Verde around the corner, or surfing at Pools or Sandy Beach. The convenience and accessibility really made this place stand out to me. I've honestly never stayed in a better vacation house. Sure you'll probably be able to find a more luxurious house with upgraded amenities and more expensive things but lets be honest here... if you're coming to Rincon you're probably coming on a surf trip and those things would be unnecessary to your vacation. And location is everything. I would much rather have an amazing experience in the perfect location than a luxurious house on top of a hill with zero access to anything. And that's what this place is: an amazing experience in the best location that you will never forget. We will definitely be booking this place again next year.

Surfer's Paradise / Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Great location for local Rincon surfing access or as a base for traveling further afield.

The property was rustic as expected from the web photographs, but was well situated,

clean, comfortable and could have easily accommodated several more people (we were 3).

The views from the lower and upper decks were tropically lush with glimpse to the beach

and the sound of crashing waves at night is always welcoming. Our hosts Carol and Denis,

left us to our own devices, but were responsive and very hospitable when we finally got to meet

them in person. The Pools Beach Bar and Sushi restaurant is right on the doorstep and had

fantastic food and drinks in an Island Life, poolside environment. (We ate there 2 out of 3 nights).

There are lots of places to go near by, but it was kind of nice to have it all right there in front of you.

If you are looking for the lap of luxury this isn't for you, but if you are looking for a fun, relaxing,

easy and welcoming place to stay, surf, and hang out then I couldn't recommend this place

enough. I would certainly come back or recommend to friends.
