As my wife and I want you to have the kind of experience that is expected when you stay in a home away from home, we put great effort into ensuring that our home exceeds this expectation. A great value for a family get away! Our beautiful, single family home, is situated on a quiet street in the Jardines neighborhood of Rincon. Located just a short walk from the center of town, less than one mile from pristine swimming and snorkeling beaches (Sea Beach and Marina Beach), and short drives to some of the best surfing beaches Rincon and the surrounding area has to offer. Our home is perfect for the budget minded family or group looking for a comfortable and affordable vacation retreat. Please note, we are close with our neighbors and ask all guests to respect our neighbors. No large, loud parties!
Explore Rincon: Less than a mile drive will bring you to Sea Beach (next to Tres Serinas), one of the area's pristine swimming beaches. You can enjoy lunch or a drink at Rincon Of The Seas or Villa Cofresi while relaxing on Sea Beach. Marina beach on Black Eagle Dr. is another great swimming and snorkeling beach, less than 5 minutes from our home. Venture down route 413 and you will find some of the area's best surfing beaches including Steps, Maria's, Domes, and Little Malibu. The Puntas neighborhood is only 10 minutes down 413 for more great surf breaks. Check out El Faro, a beautiful light house on the ocean or catch a glimpse of humpback whales! After surfing and sightseeing refresh yourself with a drink or a meal on the deck of Calypso. Come back in the evening to view spectacular sunsets over Desecheo from their deck.
Outside Rincon: Puerto Rico offers so many beautiful places to see. Short drives, under an hour, can bring you to spectacular water falls, or the bio-luminescent bay in La Parguera. Explore other surfing opportunities only 40 minutes away in Aguadilla and Isabella. Or, relax on the beautiful beaches of Tres Hermanos in Anasco!
Rincon = Surf! If you are here to surf then you MUST visit Green Room Surfboard Co. of Rincon! Located in the Puntas area of Rincon, Green Room Board Co. will fulfill all of your surf needs. Ted and Clemente, who run the Rincon location, are friendly, knowledgeable and know the local breaks. They will help you pick the right board for your experience level and for the local conditions.

Please respect our house rules. Remember, you have not booked a hotel, it is someone's home and it is expected to be treated as such. Just as we hope you create wonderful memories here, know that we have too and hope to continue to. So, during your stay please observe the following to ensure that we ALL can continue to enjoy this home:
1) Respect our neighbors. This is a friendly, local community, and we are a part of it. Enjoy yourselves, but be respectful of those around you.
2) No smoking! No need to say anymore...
3) Please do not bring the beach into the shower or the washing machine! We have an outdoor hose, please use it to wash your feet before showering and to quickly rinse any sandy clothing/towels before washing them. The sand is VERY harsh on the plumbing!
4) Please place all trash in the curbside been upon your departure and try to leave the house as you received it.
We live in New Jersey, but have been coming to Rincon for many years. Discovering that we were pregnant with our first child while searching for a home in Rincon, we decided that if we didn't do it now we never would! 10 years and 2 kids later, this was one of the best decisions we ever made! My family and I have been enjoying our home for many years now and try to make as many trips as possible. We were fortunate to find our piece of paradise in a true neighborhood filled with wonderful, friendly families. We have made many great friends and hope that you will have the same amazing experience should you decide to stay with us!
Peter purchased this house in 2003
We chose this property because of it's proximity to downtown Rincon, the beaches and restaurants (and for me, the surfing!!). But more importantly, because it is nestled just up the hill and within a wonderful little neighborhood with a true sense of community. We love the sense of a true community filled with friendly neighbors and that is exactly what we found in Rincon! You may even find the occasional bundle of local avocados or freshly picked star fruit left on your doorstep by one of our generous neighbors!
While enjoying all of the beautiful, delicious, and active offerings of Rincon and it's surrounding areas, you will have the unique benefit of retiring to your own, single family home to rest and enjoy a quiet evening to recover! If you feel like taking a break from the restaurants, you can try your hand at preparing some of your own meals from the local flavor as we are near several small groceries and the Econo market. Additionally, our home offers all you could need including all bed linens, beach and bath towels, beach chairs, a fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, and A/C in all rooms! We DO NOT have cable television or internet services (you are here to unplug and disconnect for a while!). BUT, we do have an eclectic collection of movies on VCR and DVD, including a great selection of vintage and new surf movies (just to keep the stoke burning while you relax!).
We hope this information is helpful and you may feel free to contact us ANYTIME with any questions. Hope to see you in Rincon soon!!
Jerry and his family stayed with us from June 15 through July 25, 2015. This was a private booking outside of VRBO/Homeaway so he asked that I post his review for him. Jerry and his family gave our home 5 out of 5 Stars!! Enjoy...
"Excellent location which is located right next to a park. 20 mins west of highway 2. Only 5 mins from the beach. The community of Rincon is a surfing community which has a good mix of Americans. Every Thursday the town has a street fair which vendors sell items in the courtyard. During our entire 2 month stay, we were greeted with warm smiles by our neighbors and the small town. The home is only a minuet from the main town, which has so much to see, including the street fair. A new Econo grocery store just opened about 5 minuets from the home. They have a Coop store which has all the foods you are used to from home.
The house is 3 bedrooms that are nicely sized. Tons of DVD movies and a play station 2 is at your convenience. Towels are on site, so no need to pack those! New appliances with a loaded kitchen is at your use. Each room has an air conditioner which works well. Washer and dryer also worked perfectly. Peter was very accommodating and easy to work with. We are defiantly returning next summer and will be staying here again. There was nothing wrong with anything and I can’t find a single issue to write about here. I guess if I had to say something , I would say that the street leading up to the neighborhood is a bit narrow and you have to really watch yourself when driving up it. Just beware and be alert on this street. You will know what street I am talking about when you are around the corner. The GPS will lead you right to the house. Please take good care of this house and remember to wash off your legs and feet of all sand before entering the home."
House has everything you need plus more! About ten minutes walk from centre of rincon and short drive to surf beaches. Neighbours were all friendly, would recommend
We were very happy with our rental experience! Pete was incredibly helpful and accommodating, as was his property manager. The house was great for our family: nice neighborhood location, easy walk to town and very easy drives to everywhere you can want to go in Rincon. The option to cook at home was excellent, especially with the market so near by. The house was very clean and the property very well kept up. The towels and beach chairs available were awesome to have. The tips/suggestions offered in their personal handbook were spot-on and much appreciated. So many great beaches, food places, and things to do! Loved it all and hope to get there again! (it'd be great if there were a Rincon map easily available upon arrival- tho', it's true, after a day or 2, you do get a good sense of the area)
There were many bedrooms for the lowest price we saw.
I loved being within walking distance of downtown Rincon.
We came with a little bit of a winter cold and all the excellent movies were a life saver.
I loved sitting out on the porch in the morning and evening to drink some coffee or tea and listen to all the birds. The house across the street has a beautiful flowering tree that the birds love and there were a bunch of beautifully colored birds with an amazing repertoire of music everyday. Thanks, I would definitely stay there again.
Great little house in a great location, plenty of room for 5-6, nice quiet secure neighborhood but just a short walk to the town square, with restaurants, shops, coffee and bars easily accessible. Another short walk to the town beaches for lounging, snorkeling, and Happy Hour at the beach bars. You do need a car to explore further or shopping, the surf breaks are all a short drive North of town. This house has a very handy washer and drier and full A/C, which you may not need in the Winter but it's there if you do. Very clean, with a great movie selection for the TV. Bring some CD's and you can listen to music on the dvd player. I would definitely go back to Rincon and definitely rent this house again.
A group of 6 friends stayed here for a week while surfing in Rincon and couldn't have been happier with the house. Peter and his property manager couldn't have been friendlier or more accommodating during out stay. Check in was a breeze, the house was spotless and cold AC/comfortable beds were very welcoming after spending all day on the beach. Al thought the location is not on the water, it is only a short walk into the city center of Rincon and a quick drive to any of the beaches, surf shops, restaurants or grocery stores.
Peter's house was very comfortable for our family of 6 stay in Rincon. We enjoyed having the space to cook and share meals. It is well located to the township and an easy drive all the wonderful beaches Rincon has to offer. We loved our holiday and thoroughly recommend to others.
Enjoy Rincon while relaxing in your own private home. Our little piece of heaven offers the traveler all of the amenities of home including a fully stocked kitchen, bath and beach towels and bed linens, washer/dryer, mini-split A/C units in each room and a flat screen TV with DVD/VCR player. While staying with us you will have the unique opportunity to enjoy the comforts of a tranquil home while exploring all that Rincon has to offer. You are only a short drive, less than 5 minutes, from all of the water, sun, food and fun in Rincon.
Just down the hill from our home you will find yourself in the center of Rincon where you will have access to all of the conveniences you may need. From board rentals to videos to groceries, you will find it here. Visit the well stocked Econo for all of your cooking needs or stop by one of the local road side fruit stands for some of the island's freshest fruit.
Traveling with kids? There are great swimming and calm snorkeling beaches just down the road. Visit Sea Beach, less than a mile away, for a relaxing swim. For the little ones, Marina Beach is wonderful as it has easy access to beautiful snorkeling and a protected 'cove beach' where the little ones can swim.
Looking to surf? We are conveniently located in the middle of world-class surfing beaches. Check out Tres Palmas, Steps, Maria's and Domes, or head over to the Puntas neighborhood for Pools, Sandy Beach or Parking Lot! Need a board? No problem, Green Room board company has a great selection and are super helpful in directing you to the right break for your skill level. Surf lessons are also available, check out Maria's Beach for friendly, fun lessons.
Other water sports such as SCUBA are also readily available. Taino Dive shop will get you set up on some amazing local dives. This local vendor also coordinates and runs whale watching trips and other fun water activities. They are located on Black Eagle Dr. next to Marina Beach.
Food? The choices are nearly endless. Some of our favorites are Calypso at Maria's Beach, The Lazy Parrot up Rt. 413 and Shipwreck Bar & Grill next to Taino dive Shop. Our favorite local coffee bar is Banana Dang!, located up 413 near The Lazy Parrot. They have locally grown coffee and amazing fruit smoothies! A new brewery just opened up recently in the center of town, Rincon Brewery. They feature some very nice local brews and they are walking distance from our home!
Don't miss other amazing adventures outside Rincon as well. The bio bay at La Parguera is amazing! Make sure you check out the moon phases before booking, a brighter moon will minimize the visual effect of the organisms. The Observatory in Arecibo is another fun adventure too. This huge space telescope has an amazing history and is located in the beautiful mountain area of Arecibo, only about an hour from our home. Don't miss the waterfalls and rain forests either!
Whatever you may be looking for, Rincon has it, and we are close to it!!!
