Rincon house description

Welcome to CASA PALMAS, our spacious beach house is located just back from beautiful Steps Beach on Rincon's West side. A two minute walk to the Beach. The house overlooks Marine Reserve and famous big wave surfing break Tres Palmas. SEPARATE, up and down villas or entire house is perfect for families.

DOWNSTAIRS: also offers two bedrooms, full bath, full kitchen, living room and private patio. Master bedroom with queen-size bed, second bedroom with two twin beds.

No Smoking indoors, No Pets. Spacious, Private, outdoor Hot & Cold shower for rinsing off after a day at the beach. Upstairs Villa also has private access to the roof terrace which offers spectacular sunrises and sunsets overlooking Reserva Marina Tres Palmas. Keep an eye open for Whales in season or watch for surfers 'riding giants'!

Walk to all west side surf breaks. The Surfrider Foundation picked Maria's Beach #3 on their top ten list. They said it could possibly be America's best-kept surfing secret. Not ready for the big one? No problem, Surf lessons and rentals are available locally.

Located right in front of the house is Reserva Marina Tres Palmas. Home to one of the largest elkhorn coral populations in the Caribbean, where you can snorkel with endangered turtles. For scuba, take a day trip to Desecheo Island, a wildlife preserve just offshore, that offers world class diving.

You can walk to town, restaurants, marina and dive shop from the house where you can also find deep sea and local fishing charters. At the point is Punta Higuero Lighthouse, home to Rincon's whale watching park and a perfect place to view the surfing at Domes and Indicators beaches.

Maybe you just want to relax on the beach under a palm tree or stroll for miles looking for shells and beach glass. Nearby you can hike, bike or horseback ride. Take a day trip to the rain forest, caves, Rum factory or maybe just go shopping.

Nighttime brings Reggae and Calypso music, happy hours, relaxed dining or maybe even a little Casino action in nearby Mayaguez.

                            The location of Casa Palmas was great, within walking distance to Steps Beach. We were two families that rented both units for a week around Christmas. The apartments were clean and comfortable. The 2nd floor porch saw a lot of use by the entire group. The rooftop deck was great for sunsets. There was easy to surfing, snorkeling, and dining. We would happily return!

                            We were a family group of nine and had a wonderful time at Casa Palmas. The house was great! It was clean, nicely decorated and equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed our evenings on the veranda or the rooftop. It was a vacation to remember!

                            Casa Palmas was perfect for our family vacation. The best surf break was about a mile away. The deck on the second level was great and the roof top patio was fantastic.

                            We have been visiting Puerto Rico and Rincon especially for over 12 years and this was the most relaxing and enjoyable thanks to the comfortable and well cared for Casa Palmas. The wonderful outdoor shower, quiet neighborhood, quick walk down to beach Tres Palmas to the full easy to use kitchen, the veranda and king sized bed have us planning our next visit,hopefully soon.

                            We rented the upstairs and downstairs together with several other couples. The place was clean, well stocked, and only a few minute walk from the beach. The upstairs patio and roof deck were a great place to spend the evenings. The property was well maintained and as advertised.

                            Having stayed in Rincon before, I was hoping that this beach house would be just as good as the last place I stayed--and it was even better. The house is nestled in a little neighborhood just off of Tres Palmas Marine Reserve. It's an easy drive into downtown but is far enough away that you get the quiet of the countryside. Steps Beach is literally a 60 second drive from the house where you will find unbelievable snorkeling. The house was very clean, the maids were super friendly, and the owner quickly responded to any questions I texted him regarding the area or the house. The photos of the house on the website when I reserved it were completely accurate. The rooftop deck is a huge bonus, and I loved the outdoor shower! Upon pulling out of the driveway for our departure, my husband and I immediately began planning on coming back with family and renting the whole house!

                            Our stay was great. Everything was as described. Just a short walk to a beautiful beach with incredible snorkeling. We stayed in the downstairs portion and everything we needed was provided for. The outside shower was wonderful. Ken was very accommodating and informative. Would not hesitate to stay here again on our next trip to Rincon!

                            We just returned from our vacation at Casa Palmas and my daughters (ages 13 and 11) are already talking about going back! The house is beautiful and the location is perfect. My daughters loved snorkeling at Reserva Marina Tres Palmas which is only a 2 minute walk from the house. We enjoyed preparing our meals in the fully stocked kitchen and eating outside on the scenic veranda. The sound of the coqui's at night was magical! Ken was very accessible and always very helpful. Thanks Ken for a wonderful vacation in your home!

                            This is my second trip to Rincon -- the loveliest part of Puerto Rico that I've been to. Casa Palmas is a great rental in a perfect location... a very short walk to a gorgeous beach that is also a marine preserve. The snorkeling here is great... fan coral, elkhorn coral, beautiful tropical fish and turtles are all waiting for you to step in from the beach. We did a lot of great beach combing here and nearby and had a great time. Casa Palmas is comfortable and clean and we had everything we needed. We stayed on the second floor and my favorite "room" was the huge covered porch. Ken was responsive and great to work with. I can't wait to go back!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: We have been coming to Rincon to surf & vacation since 1977. After exploring locales from the Bahamas to Europe & Hawaii to Australia, nowhere do we feel so relaxed & at home as in Rincon. Having grown up on & around the ocean & raising our family on Cape Cod, we cherish every moment we spend in this magical place. We hope you can come discover & enjoy as well!

                          Why the Owner Chose Rincon:
                          We have always loved the Ensenada area of Rincon because it's the perfect spot to be close to all the best surf breaks on the West/Southside or Carribean Sea side of the Point. The nicest local people you will ever meet. A quiet, family neighborhood, plus walking distance to great restaurants, the dive shop and even town. Our side of the Point tends to be less windy than the Northside, yet always offers a nice breeze.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The Tres Palmas Marine Reserve is right out in front of the house! This protected area off of Steps Beach offers fabulous snorkeling! Please view our Listing Video! See endangered turtles, schools of tropical fish, sometimes dolphin and whale sightings. Many consider Steps Beach THE BEST beach around. A roof top sunset from Casa Palmas looking out over the big wave break of Tres Palmas can be very awe inspiring!!
