Relax at this beachfront rental, located on Tres Palmas Marine Reserve, only 30 minutes from the Rafael Hernández Airport (BQN) in Aguadilla or 2 hours from the Luiz Munoz airport in San Juan.

Enjoy beautiful sunsets every evening, world class snorkeling and scuba diving right in front of the house with turtles, exotic fish and the largest elkhorn coral reef in the Caribbean. Stunning views of Desecheo island, whale sightings occur throughout the winter months and world class surfing can be had at Tres Palmas Beach.

                            We had a great time here in the surfing town of Rin Con! The rental is very clean and airy, loved the night sounds and waves. We missed some huge waves but not being surfers did not mind. Each day brought loads of sun and the water is so warm! It was the perfect antidote for us New Yorkers after a long cold winter. Ali was a perfect host and quick to fix the ceiling fans, nice to have the owners nearby. We had chairs and snorkeling gear to borrow which helped so much with packing. The beach is five stairs away and there are good restaurants close by. We drove to several surfing beaches and enjoyed the laid back vibe. I would recommend this rental to a family with two kids as the beach is so close to the rental but for us it was a quiet refuge . Shipwreck restaurant was very good too. Rin Con is a long drive from San Juan and we wished we had known about the two closer airports nearby. Should have checked with Ali first and the town is hard to get to with many smaller roads criss-crossing the hillsides but Ali gave us good driving directions to follow. All in all a good rental to choose.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, romantic getaway, adventure seekers.

                            We really can't add anything to all the good things already said about 'R' Beach House, other than to say that it totally exceeded our expectations. Absolutely fabulous place to stay!

                            My family of four (two college age kids) spent the better part of a week at R House in late March. Sea breezes blew through the home, waves sounded each evening and wonderful smells from the tropical garden defined our visit. The home was well appointed and we arrived to nice soaps, beach towels and many fun things for the beach. Allison hooked the kids up with a great surfing instructor, had suggestions for restaurants and while helpful, was never hovering. I would strongly encourage you to visit R house -- you'll love eating outside as the evening sets and viewing fabulous sunsets. You'll like being close to all Rincon has to offer but feeling far away from daily life.

                            We just spent a week at 'R' House in Rincon with our old friends. We used to surf together in High School MANY years ago and thought we'd give it one more try. The weather was perfect, the people in PR are great, and the food was excellent. What's not to like about Rincon! 'R' House is very comfortable for two couples and the sunset views and snorkeling right in front of the house are to die for! Yes, we did surf, we went for an ATV ride, and had excellent food at two restaurants within walking distance. The house has all the conveniences and the grounds with mango and almond trees is beautiful! Can't wait to go back.

                            This is a beautiful property. Our family of 4 just enjoyed a fabulous 5 night stay. The house is perfect for a family getaway. It is clean, very well maintained, and has everything necessary for a stress free vacation. The grounds are immaculate and provide both great scenery and privacy. The covered lanai is a great place to have dinner while watching the sun set into the Caribbean or to read or relax in the hammock. There is a nice little tide pool directly in front of the house which is a great place for kids to play. You have direct access to Steps Beach and the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve which provides some great swimming and snorkeling opportunities. There are plenty of beach toys and snorkeling gear available and an outdoor shower to rinse off after a day at the beach. Tres Palmas Beach is just around the corner and Maria's Beach is just a few minutes walk further down the beach where you can watch the local surfers or catch a glimpse of a passing whale or two. The home is located in a nice, quiet little neighborhood surrounded by friendly neighbors. As far as dining/beverage options go, Carta Buena food truck is right around the corner and provides dreamy juice smoothies and light, fresh, organic fare. Just a couple minutes walk further down the road will bring you to The Shipwreck, La Copa Llena, and Joe's. Steps Beach Quick Lunch is a nice place to grab some lunch while at the beach. They have delicious fresh fish pinchos and coco frio as well as a few other yummy lunch options. Allison and Leon were very friendly and welcoming and were helpful with answering our questions. We felt right at home. With direct access to the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve, great dining and drinking options within easy walking distance, and the location of a quiet, local neighborhood, we consider this to be the premier spot in all of Rincon and really wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else. Can't wait to return!

                            Spent a long weekend at R beach house this past summer w/a few buddies... The house is very comfortable & equipped w/everything needed for relaxing & playing on the beach... Leon & Ali were very helpful in answering any inquiries about the house, town & surrounding area... Beautiful Steps Beach in the back yard w/world class snorkeling... A short walk to several great restaurant options as well as Carta Buena for coffee & fresh juices in the morning... Going back in a couple of days... WE CANNOT WAIT!!

                            WOW. The property was awesome. World class snorkeling out the back door (gear at the house) and surfing down the road 1 mile for us beginners. The drive from San Juan sucks, but once your at the house you have no reason to leave. The owners are upstairs and very helpful but NEVER intrusive. The dog (Snickers) becomes part of your family. Dining options require VERY short drives or long walks. We were there during the "busy" season but never saw anyone. It's secluded and quiet. You will NOT be disappointed!!!!!

                            What a great house and great location. It was heaven to sit in beach chairs just behind the house every evening and watch the sunset. We all enjoyed snorkeling and paddle boarding right behind the house and it was just a short walk or drive to sandy beaches where the boys all surfed. We went sight seeing to Camuy Caves and the Arecibo Observatory one day but otherwise we were just content to enjoy the serenity of the beaches in and around Rincon. The house was very clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed inside and all the beach stuff we needed outside. Breakfast and dinner on the patio was amazing. Allison and Leon were great hosts and we loved our visits from their adorable dog Snickers too. Wish we were back there now!

                            Wife and I had an amazing stay at the R house! Perfect location in a perfect little Puerto Rican town. Well away from the hustle and bustle of San Juan. Easy flight from South Florida and interesting ride from San Juan or fly direct in to Aguadilla. Wake up, walk 20 feet to the ocean, relax all day on a beautiful beach. The ocean behind the house is all protected aquatic area so pristine snorkeling is right at your back door step! The house has all the amenities you need to stay a weekend or a month. Plenty of shops and restaurants in town to keep you fed and occupied. Owners are amazing, kind and super helpful folks. Hooked us up with all the the information we needed for a perfect 3 day very long very relaxing vacation. Can't wait to get back ASAP!!!

                            My family just finished our third trip to R house. Leon and Alli do a wonderful job making us feel right at home. Every year we come, they are making upgrades-- this year the kitchen and bath were renovated- very modern and hoping to replicate the design back home. Being right on the beach is such a treat. We end each day BBQ-ing on the covered porch looking out to the waves. They also are adding another house a block away that will have a swimming pool so we will definitely return again to check it out. Best vacation experience which is why we repeat it every year. Can't rave enough about how amazing the house is. A must for families but can also see my hubby and I making this a romantic getaway. Rincon is the best.

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, pet owners, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: Leon and I have lived in Rincon for well over 8 years and have loved every minute of it. After moving from NYC to the beaches of Rincon, we used to look up at skyscrapers, now we look up at the palm trees. Life doesn't get any better than this. We're able to swim or surf everyday at Tres Palmas, we hear the coqui frogs singing at night with the waves crashing on the beach, we get to see the most spectacular sunset every night and we eat fruit that falls off the trees in the neighborhood.

                          Why the Owner Chose Rincon:
                          We had been renting a house in the neighborhood for years and was always on the look out for our dream home. Once this house went on the market we jumped on it. It had all three characteristics that we had to have. #1 VIEWS: incredible ocean views, stunning sunset views, and views to Desecheo Island. #2 LOCATION: Located in the Tres Palmas Marie Reserve on Steps Beach, which happens to be the prettiest beach in town. #3 PROXIMTY TO OCEAN: No need to get in the car to go swimming, snorkeling or surfing! Just walk out door and onto the sand.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Quiet, peaceful neighborhood, Steps from the beach. Starry nights, shooting stars, sunfilled days, gorgeous sunsets. World class snorkeling and scuba diving right in front of the house. On the rare occasion some of the biggest surfing waves in the world. Hawksbill turtles living on the reef in front of the house. Swimming with turtles. Watching whales breach from the deck.
