Upon entering the home, you will find first class appointments with a generously sized kitchen with stainless full sized appliances and granite counter tops. The open floor plan has a nice sized family room with a Futon sofa and chair. Relax in the family room while watching the 40” flat screen TV. Bring your BlueRay disks to enjoy a movie during your stay. Hi Speed internet and Wifi router sit directly in the middle of the house to insure strong connectivity. There is a full bathroom, a bedroom with two twin beds and master bedroom with a king sized bed. High thread count linens and high end mattress are also here. Plus bath towels and generous beach towels are also in abundance.

About Craig

My wife and I are relatively new to surfing but love the water and love active vacations. Our first home is in Northern Virginia

Craig purchased this house in 2010

Why Craig chose Puerto Rico

We were looking for a place to surf and really were not up for a trip to California or Hawaii. While not a fan of San Juan we figured we would give Rincon a try. We absolutely loved the area and loved all the various surf breaks. 3 years of looking and we found our dream spot and then added our dream home.

What makes this house unique

After staying at several places in Rincon we found that many of the accommodations were lacking. Old kitchens, terrible beds, plastic furniture, non working tv's, poor to non-existent WIFI and views that did not live up to creatively framed/zoomed advertised photos. We decided to build a home that would address ALL these issues while still being the best value for the vacation dollar.

The home is located in a vibrant local neighborhood. You are just a short walk to the famous Puntas Bakery and several bars and restaurants. You are right in the middle of all the best surfing breaks in Rincon. The biggest factor when building was to take advantage of the panoramic ocean views from the Casita's roof. Being able to have happy hour at the house and watch the over the ocean sunsets each night is just the perfect end to the day.

Awesome Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in Rincon for the past few years looking for the 'right' place. I think we have found it. We usually only stay right on the water, but we didn't mind being up the hill, and only a couple minutes from the great surf spots. The owners could not be nicer and more welcoming. We stayed in the smaller of the 2 properties, but got a tour of the main house and both are very nice. We will absolutely be staying here again, and again!! Highly recommend this place!!

Surf Casita - fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the smaller property adjacent the big Surf Break house, the Surf Casita, and had a fantastic stay. The place is very conveniently located to all the surf breaks, anywhere from 2-5 minutes away (we had a car). The apartment is super cute and very well-appointed, and Craig the owner was always very helpful, responsive, and top of things. While we were there the wifi went down for a few days because of issues with the company (not with our house at all), and Craig was totally on it right away, calling the company and keeping us constantly updated on the progress. I would love to return to Rincón and stay at this place again.

Surf Casita Great Chill Spot

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time. While the house sleeps 6x that number is really targeted to a family with kids. For a group of friends we agree that 3-4 is much more reasonable.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Surf Casita was amazing! It's location is perfect- within a 5 minute drive to most of the best surf breaks in Rincon. The house is perfect for 2 couples or a few friends. One of the major highlights is the rooftop patio. We spent many nights up there hanging out, cooking dinner on the barbeque and checking out the stars.

Craig was extremely helpful. He gave us a ton of info on all the surf spots and was available every time I needed to get in contact with him.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Rincon.

Many thanks to Craig!

Owner's Response: Very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We went back and forth on building the roof deck but when we realized the view it would have we knew we had to? Thanks
