|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
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!
Set among the trees, fantastic rustic hideaway
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.
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.
Pros: Location, location, location! Nice pool bar and sushi place just a few steps away. We had the pool by ourselves until 4-5pm which was great. The house has a nice beach house look and luxurious vegetation around it.
Cons: Same shower towels for 10 days, no beach towels (bring your own). Almost no dishes, pans, ustensils and glasses, plus we needed to wash everything before use. Do not go there hoping to cook your own meals during your stay, we were pretty disapointed about that. The kitchen is as basic as can be and the oven was broken. In need of new sheets for all the beds. Toilet was also broken, you needed to fill the tank with a Tupperware 2-3 times to flush.
The place is great but in desperate need of some love. Pricey for what you get, I had rented villa's for the same price with much more amenities. We are not difficult travelers, everyone between 28 to 38 yrs old.
Overall this is a pretty unique property.
Pros - Unique tucked away spot. Amazing sushi and relaxed little bar atmosphere beside the pool. Surf spots just up the hill. A quick walk to tamboo.
Cons - In need of some love. For instance - shower and kitchen sink were barely draining. Had to buy drano to resolve. Only 3 towels were in the bathroom. I cut my foot on a small piece of glass in the shower. Sheets/bedding looked clean but could definitely use an upgrade. Funky smell in the bathroom. Toilet was leaking a bit. Kitchen was not as clean as it could have been. (We did leave behind an army of cleaning stuff). I did speak with the owners and they have said they are looking at improving some of these aspects.
Activities: Tamboo, snorkling at Tres Palmas if it is calm (as well as the bomb empanadillas you can buy at the trailer there), surfing around the area, Gozalandia/Las Cataratas waterfalls in San Sebastian (you can jump from behind the curtain about 30 to 35 feet high with water at the very least 15 to 20 feet deep below I never hit the bottom, swim into a cave with 4 people that is located to the right of the waterfall and connected to the outside with a 3 inch air gap above the water, and at the waterfall upstream there is an awesome rope swing).
All in all this is definitely more of a free spirit type place for younger people that are looking for a good time. I would not recommend this to my parents for instance, but I definitely had fun.
Great place for big groups. Stayed here with my sister and 6 nieces. We had plenty of room. Pool was great and the sushi at The Pool Bar made it easy to have some delicious food and drinks while we were there. You can walk to great beaches and some other restaurants. I have stayed here and at some of their other properties like the Love Shack and the apartments across the street. I stay at one of their properties everytime I am in PR. Love it!
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.
