Property description

CASA ZEN is in the quiet neighborhood of Ensenada in Rincon, Puerto Rico. The house is steps to the Marina beach and the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve, a beautiful surfing and snorkeling beach. Rincon is only 30 minutes away from the Rafael Hernandez Airport (BQN) in Aguadilla , 2-2.5 hours from the Luis Munoz Marin (SJU) Airport in San Juan, and 1.30 hours from Ponce Airport. BQN is the closest.

This bright & airy 2b/1b and 1b/1b floor sits on a quiet lot with bamboo, mango, avocado, and banana trees. Downstairs there are 2 apartments with long term residents.

The 2 bedroom unit layout: A bedroom with a queen-size bed, a nightable, a dresser, closet, and a wooden balcony. A second bedroom with two twin beds, a nightable, small dresser, and closet. One full bathroom, living room, full kitchen with fridge, toaster oven, radio with ipod dock, and gas stove top. Bathroom shower is solar heated.
The 1 bedroom unit layout:
A bedroom with a queen-size bed, two nightables, and closet, a lounge with futon, chaise, breakfast table, small fridge, coffee maker, toaster oven, small electric range (NO kitchen), a balcony and a bathroom.
The big outdoor terrace with tables and hammock is a common area. The rest of the areas are for the private use of each unit.


In this house you'll find the quiet relaxation you deserve. It has much open space, wooden balconies and decks for meditation, yoga, exercise, contemplating nature, reading, relaxing, or getting a massage. You can eat out, or get inspired to cook in our spacious kitchen! A Zen-Contemporary style sets this house apart.

Custom made mosaics and original art adorn the walls. Listen to the sounds of nature you've forgotten. Taste simplicity with elegance. Connect back to nature, yourself, and your loved ones. Make this a special retreat from hectic lifestyles.

A few steps away is the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve with world class snorkeling, scuba diving, exotic fish and some of the largest elkhorn coral reefs in the Caribbean. On the same block are great restaurants, b & b, smoothies truck, dive shops, and bars. The center of town is a 15 minute walk, with shops, coffee shops, bakeries, restaurants, supermarkets, banks (ATM) and pharmacies. Daily yoga classes are 5 min. away. Other beaches and famous surf spots are a short stroll down the beach. This is Rincon at its best. Dare to explore it!
