Rincon apartment description

Our secluded apartment sits beachside on Pools Beach, one of the most unique and beautiful beaches in Rincon. It is fully furnished with a full kitchen, air conditioning, cable tv, private balconies with patio seating and gated parking. The bedroom has a queen-size bed and there is a full-size foldout in the living area, comfortably sleeping up to 4 people. There are 2 bathrooms with showers in each. Ocean breezes, beautiful sunsets and private steps to Pools Beach.


Pools Beach: Pools Beach is unique in that during the high surf months (Nov-April) the surfing is great, but there are also small wading 'pools' for non-surfers. It is also one of the least-crowded beaches due to a lack of parking and sits next to the Domes trail which leads to some 'secret' spots.

                                This was our first trip to PR and the Whale watcher apartment on pools beach made the whole stay a wonderful experience. We wouldn't think of coming back and not staying there again. In fact, we're already talking with our family about going back and rent the whole house for the whole group. The access to the beach is like having your own private piece of paradise with nice people dropping by now and then ;-) The short walk to Sandy beach for surf (didn't feel quite up to surfing the reef in front of the house) was also a great bonus. Everything you may need is a short drive away. This was an awesome way to experience Rincon lifestyle. I hope my review won't contribute to the house being already booked when we inquire again, but I just can't bring myself to not recommending it to anyone wanting to vacation there and have a great time.

                                We have stayed in a couple of different apartments and houses in the Rincon and Isabela areas. The Apartments at Pools, especially the Whale Watcher, is ideal. Not fancy but not too funky. Two, count them two full baths. Fully stocked large kitchen. A/C in the quiet bedroom. Semi-private (only two apartments in the building), incredible views, immediate access to the sweetest Rincon beach, and if you're a surfer, when it breaks well, an awesome mostly right wave for the intermediate to advanced shredder. Walkable to a bunch of funky restaurants and bars (if that's your thing), but not in the heat of any overwhelming night action (though there was one night of live music at the place across the street that was a bit annoying, but w/ earplugs in the bedroom you could barely hear it)Totally reasonably priced. We plan on returning!

                                Owner response: Hello Alice, Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review. We strive to make sure all our guests visits are as special as their view. Thank you again and we look forward to your return. Mary Lee Sefried

                                We loved our stay! We stayed in the Whale Watcher. The house is beautiful, and we loved being right on the beach! We enjoyed all the amenities of the house and felt like we lived there. There was a small problem with the electricity but it was resolved the next day. The property manager was wonderful, he gave us a ton of helpful information and was very welcoming. Guests may want to pay attention where the shower head is pointed in the small shower stall, so as not to flood the place :) We would definitely love to come back (maybe a family reunion)!

                                This was my third time in Rincon and the first time with my wife and daughter. The property has an amazing view onto Pools beach and a great private access to it. It is also gated on the dead end street which makes it a breeze to walk to Sandy beach, which is about 5 houses down the road. The property is relatively comfortable and well appointed. Kitches has all the appliances needed and has ample cups, plates, and utensils. Cooking pots are plentiful, though there were no teflon ones (difficult to make eggs on reg. metal pots :) Internet speed is very good considering where you are. TV has many channels though we never used it as we were always on the beach or just relaxing on the terrace. The property is clean and the grounds are maintained. It has an automatic generator and 2 built-in bbq's which were a nice touch. Parking was ample though you have to be careful exiting the property as it is difficult to see who is coming. Since the wife had to open the gate each time, she directed me whether I could proceed or not. Overall we had a great time and the apartment along with its location and amenities made it even better Definitely a come back and being ON the beach is a HUGE plus.

                                My boyfriend & I booked this beautiful 1 bedroom apartment last minute for his birthday & it was awesome! We were given the Whale Watcher apt which was beautiful, Very clean, right on the beautiful beach & a 2 minute walk to all of the great bars & restaurants Rincon has to offer, Tamboo, Pools Sushi, Ode to the Elephants, Casa Verde etc..The grounds are gorgeous, there is a grill out back for some late nite grub & everything else you would need is provided for you inside. There is also a kick ass generator as Rincon is prone to power outages, but we never lost power as some other ppl that we met among our travels did that stayed elsewhere. I highly recommend staying here as a couple!!! We loved it there & hope to return in the near future. The property managers Elier & Jennifer are awesome, very helpful as well as the owner Jim. Thanks guys! We loved everything! Hope to see you again soon :)

                                Our stay at Pools Beach apartments was perfect. The 2nd floor apartment provided wonderful views of Pools beach and great sunsets. The apartment is set up to take advantage of the lovely ocean breezes. Very close to Sandy beach where swimming boogie boarding and surfing are ideal. Also on Sandy beach is Tamboo bar which has great food and drink right on the beach. Across from the apartments is the Pools Beach Club and Bar - great place from drinks and sushi. We would definitely recommend Pools Beach apartments and will plan to come back.

                                Owner response: Thank you. Plenty to do in the area, whether on the beach or dining out, nobody has mentioned the yoga down by Casa islena, also great breakfast at the Island House restaurant at Casa islena.

                                We decided to stay at the Pools Beach Apartments mainly because of its great location. The pictures looked great on the internet also so we decided to book. Jim was very helpful in accomodating us since we had to switch dates due to a last minute change in plans. Once we got there, we were received by Jennifer and she was very kind and helpful. One of the main goals was to have an ocean view apt for our short vacation and let me tell you... this goes beyond ocean view... it feels like you're on a ship sailing through the ocean!!! It's beautiful!! The apt itself is very nice and cozy. By far the best feature is the balcony!! Private parking, private stairs to the beach, only one other neighbor (in our case we were upstairs), restaurants close by... just great all around! Definetly coming back for more!! Thanks Jim and crew!!

                                Owner response: Thank you! I love reading these reviews and the comments on the location because I really do agree it is one of the most beautiful in Rincon, see you again soon!

                                Our family loved this location. You are literally right on the beach, roaring waves at the foot of the building. Nice breezes coming through, lots of windows to open, light and airy. Kitchen was adequate for making coffee, light snacks and breakfast. We mostly ate out, though. For a family of four, it was a bit tight bed-wise, not fault of the apartment. We knew that going in. Our 12 yr old slept on the fold out; our son on a cheap blow up from Walgreens. In the future, I think we'll find an official 2 bedroom with beds for everybody. Our son wore himself out surfing and it seemed he should have his own bed at the end of the day. The only other comment we can make is an advisory to families and those who like to sleep at regular hours. One night, there was very loud live music from Pools Bar ( we love the restaurant, by the way) that started after 11 and went after 1am. This is typical of spring break weeks. Also, our upstairs neighbors were young and had folks over who made some noise--not late, however-- one night or two. If you are there during peak season and would be uncomfortable with this keeping you up later than usual, you may want to seek out a quiter part of town. Otherwise, it is a great place.

                                Owner response: Thank you for the comments and for the air mattress! Yes, we suggest 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 small kids. The Pool Bar Sushi has about 4 Saturdays a year where they do live music til late in the night. For 95% of the year, the area is very tranquil except for the ocean and wind.

                                My fiance and I stayed in the Surfwatcher apartment in March 2013 during our first Puerto Rican vacation, and we could not have picked a better place to stay. The location is perfect - nestled steps above a near-private beach with swaying palm trees and pristine blue water and some of the best sunset views in Rincon! We spent just about every morning and evening on the deck soaking in the incredible views. There are virtually no man-made structures in sight, which really makes this location special. You can snorkel and surf right out front which is a plus. The views are exaclty what you see in the pictures! The Apartments at Pools Beach is situated just far enough from the busier Sandy Beach (separated by a small headland to just to the east) to offer plenty of privacy, but also close enough that we could enjoy the restaurants and bars at Sandy Beach just a short 2 minute walk away (Tamboo Tavern, Casa Verde/Big Kahuna Restaruants, the Mango Beach Shop, and Pool Bar are some popular spots). The Red Flamboyan restaurant just up the hill to the west is a great spot for some local cuisines and was one of our favorites. Check out the path to Maria's Beach as well. Now for the basics - the apartment was stocked with all essential kitchenware and bedding, shower and beach towels, and the AC unit located in the bedroom worked great. It was very clean upon our arrival. There are also about 5 fans located througout and screens on all the windows/doors which make the place great to keep open at night. The sound of the ocean right outside is something we really enjoyed! There is enough dishware to cook about any meal, and the kitchen included a coffee pot, blender, microwave, stove, oven, full size fridge/freezer, etc. The apartment is set up to accomodate two couples (or a small family) with one bedroom and a living area with a futon that has privacy curtains, as well as two full bathrooms. The owner James was extremely nice and helpful and prompt with responding to emails, answering all of our questions and providing many recommendations for our trip. Within a day of our departure (it was really a sad day when we left!) he had checked in on us about our stay and refunded the security deposit. The local manager, Elier, was super nice as well and had the place ready for us when we arrived. The customer service was excellent. We highly recommend to anyone and will surely be booking our next visit here soon! Cannot wait to return!

                                Owner response: Thanks for you kind words and good information. We try to be prompt and make the whole process as easy as possible, and the location itself will do the rest!
