Overview

About the property

BEACHFRONT 5 bedrms, 3 + baths, 12-14 guests , Pool, 6 bedrms in summer,sleeps16

POR FIN Dogmans Beach makes it easy to please your large group. With a private pool, and one of the best surf breaks right in your own backyard, you may never want to leave! Especially at sunset!! Our villa is surrounded by almost an acre of tropically landscaped gardens which makes a natural setting for your family gatherings, and DESTINATION WEDDINGS.

There are 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 1 half bath, and each room that does not have a private bath, has a vanity sink and mirror. These accommodations are all on the 1st level of the villa, and can accommodate from 10-14 guests.

Steve and I live on the 2nd level of the house in the winter months.

The villa is a private villa in the summer months but the property manager is just a phone call away. The house can accommodate 10-16 guests in summer months with a 6th bedroom/studio apartment on the 2nd level of the house.

Although we had no major damage from the hurricane, we used the down time to improve the villa with an awesome NEW COVERED LANAI. One of our LOCAL TALENTS built us a dining table made from eucalyptus trees lost in the storm. The farm table is 12 feet long and can seat 12 to 14 comfortably for outdoor dining with a breathtaking view.

We also upgraded the pool patio with Coralina mosaic tiles which look “cool” and remains cool and comfortable throughout the sunny day. Furnished with Lounge chairs for 6-9 guests, umbrella covered patio tables, and seating close to the ocean, everyone will surely find a comfortable spot to relax on this new pool patio.

We also made some nice upgrades to the kitchen. Brand new custom wood cabinets, made by the same local carpenter were added, as well as a dishwasher.

The French doors in the dining and living room open up to the covered lanai and pool patio which makes for a smooth indoor outdoor flow with a feng shui feel.

Great surf break!!: Dogmans beach is a surf break between Maria's beach and Tres Palmas. All three beaches are within walking distance from each other. Even if you don't participate, just sitting on the beach and watching them ride the waves is exciting.

All beaches are open to the public in Puerto Rico, but, this stretch of beach is as close to 'Private' beach as you can get. Especailly when the water is calm.

Walk to Calypso Bar and Grill from the house for sunset happy hour coctails.

Walk to the Lighthouse park to watch the whales [seasonal] or just take in the breathtaking views.

About Anna

My husband and I first came to Rincon in 1994. We were blessed in 1999 when we found this beachfront home, and immediately knew it was for us. We have done extensive remodeling to the villa and the grounds . We moved here in 2001 and spend most of the fall and winter here. We return to NJ for the summer months. We love sharing the villa and meeting guests from around the world.

Anna purchased this villa in 1999

Why Anna chose Puntas

This property is UNIQUE. The 3 most important things to consider when choosing a home away from home is LOCATION, LOCATION, AND LOCATION. POR FIN DOGMANS BEACHFRONT location is in my opinion, the BEST area I n Rincon. It is on a semi private road, between Steps beach and the light house. It is rare to find beachfront homes with nearly an acre of property surrounding it. We are in a nice quiet area with upscale homes. House faces west for spectacular sunsets.

Conveniently located 2 miles from the center of town for shopping, many new restaurants and pubs, and the Sunday FARMERS MARKET and Thursday evening ART WALK.

Short walk to the right on the wide beach will lead you to Calypso Bar and Grill, El Bohio beach bar, and the Lighthouse park. Continue walking and you will be at Domes beach where locals love to surf. There is a small walking path past Domes beach that is worth the walk. The View from this cliffside path is spectacular!!! This is a natural path so it may be muddy after the rain.

Walk to the left on the beach and you will come to Steps beach. Good snorkeling close to shore. Next stop, the marina area where there is a nice sandy bottom place to swim. Great restaurants like Shipwreck, Copa Llena, and beach bars are in this area. La Ancla beachfront bar, and a new place at Club Nautico are fun places to have lunch and cocktails.

What makes this villa unique

The Unique benefits of this villa 1st and foremost is that it is BEACHFRONT!!! True beachfront.

The beaches in the area thankfully are still WIDE BEACHES. You can take long walks on the beach in both directions. Walk as far as the marina to the left, go up and around Copa llena and you can walk past the public beach and beyond.

To the right, you can walk as far as Calypso bar, go up and around, and walk to the lighthouse park and a beautiful walking path along the old railroad cliff with spectacular views of the coast along the way.

We are close to center of town and the night life bar scene in Puntas, but yet QUIET when you want to escape and relax in your home away from home.

Spacious tropically landscaped grounds, semi private road.

View of Desecheo and Sunsets from the yard all year long.

Short drive or nice walk to town where on Thursday evenings, the local artisans gather to display their art work and share their music. The local Farmers Market is set up in the square on Sunday mornings and is a fun place to visit.

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this property last year for our stay over this Easter,Anna was a treat to deal with. We had a crew of 13 ,all ages from 7 years to 66 years.

The property has something for everyone ,kitchen ,living and outdoor accommodations are superb,not to mention the pool and the hot tub,(NOTE ,it isnt a hot tub temperature wise just a bubble whirlpool but just as good as no heat needed)

Walk out the gate and you are on the beach ,take a short walk and you have drinks and a bite to eat at a local restaraunt,

I would highly recommend this property to anyone with a group.

House and grounds are clean and well manicured.

AAAAAA PLUS

Everything we hoped for an sooo much more!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time that I used the Homeaway website to book a rental property. I was a little nervous at first about sending the deposit but I put my trust in the amazing reviews and after several phone calls and emails to Anna I felt confident that I could also trust in the her. This vacation was planned as a couples retreat for my husband and I along with 4 other couples. The property was true to the pictures above and the house was spacious, clean and comfortable. It was very open and airy. The air conditioners in the bedrooms made it very comfortable to sleep at night. The landscaping was beautiful and provided a lot of shade during the peak hours of the day. The beach was great and thanks to the previous reviews we all brought some water runner so didn't have to worry about the sea urchins or rock fish. The homeowners, Anna and Steve were amazing and very helpful. They went above and beyond our expectations and kindly assisted us with a special request upon our arrival. We all had an amazing holiday. I would highly recommend this property. I am planning to return to Por Fin Dogmans in Summer or 2018 with a group of very excited Girl Guides. Thank you so much for such amazing memories that we will cherish forever!!

Great place and owners!

  • 5 of 5

I needed a private retreat and I found it at Por Fin Dogmans. My family and I had an unforgettable time there. With all the comforts of home, we spent 4 nights bathing in the pool and beach, eating, drinking and relaxing. It was a magical time; one we will never forget. Can't wait for our next trip. We highly recommend this location. The owners are very generous and you will not be disappointed. Thank you Anna!

Relaxing Family Time!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and a few friends, 11 of us in total had a wonderful stay at Casa Por Fin!! The house had plenty of space so we did not feel crowded. The house was clean when we got there, although we would have loved an extra maid service half way through the week! The pool was relaxing and we spent a lot of time in it. Brought our own floaties which was very necessary as there were not any. The beach was beautiful - fun looking for shells, but if you enter the water be sure to wear water shoes and watch out for sea urchins. The town was cute and we ate at Tamboo Tavern, The Beach House and the Sushi Restaurant which were all good! Very low key town which made for a very relaxing vacation! Enjoyed every minute of it! The Snorkel/Bio Bay Tour through Paradise Scuba about an hour away is an absolute must - it was so awesome!! Oh, and we loved the kitty that seemed to come with the house!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We love La Parguera too!! It is a fun place for a day trip. We like packing out cooler, renting a small boat, and spending the day snorkeling and swimming right off the boat. If you walk down the beach to the next house either the right, or the left, you will find places where you can enter the water with a smooth bottom surface. Just a reminder...additional mid week cleaning is an available option. Just let me know either on arrival or in advance and I can set it up for you with our reliable cleaning crew.

Great family vacation destination!

  • 5 of 5

Our family, 10 people, 3 generations recently spent a week at Casa Por Fin. The spacious home and grounds are every bit as beautiful as the photos. We all enjoyed the pool and tropically landscaped yard. The seating area near the beach is perfect for watching the sunset, and a few of us enjoyed napping in the nearby hammocks. We particularly loved the shady patio seating areas whether playing games with the children, eating meals, or just relaxing while listening to the sound of the surf. As other reviewers have stated, the beach behind the house is rocky and not well suited for swimming. The little ones built sand castles on the beach behind the house, and we enjoyed swimming and snorkeling at Steps Beach which is just a short walk up the beach from the house. We also walked in the other direction and had a delicious lunch at the Calypso Grill.

We were startled the first time we saw an iguana in the yard. It was close to 3 ft. long, but we soon realized it meant us no harm. There were often 2 or 3 in the yard at once. Fun! We don't get those in Missouri.

When we first arrived at the house the electricity was off. Parts of Rincon had no power and other areas had no water and a few places had neither. There was only enough propane in the generator to run for 5 or 6 hours, and more could not be delivered until the next morning. Anna's employee, Sebastian met us at the house and explained the situation. We were so impressed with him. He worked so hard to get the power back on. And on the following Sunday he arrived before we left even though he had to walk to the house because highway 413 was closed temporarily because of the triathlon. It was already pretty hot before 10 a.m. but he went right to work cleaning the pool. Anna has a good employee in Sebastian. He will do everything in his power to make your stay pleasant.

On our second evening there we had Angelo, the personal chef that Anna recommended, prepare a 5 course meal for us so we could sample some traditional Puerto Rican foods. Our huge meal included empanadillas, surullitos, cod fritters, cream of plantain soup, pork with guava sauce, and a mashed vegetable medley, plus salad and a dessert tray. We loved our introduction to Puerto Rican foods, and his generous portions allowed for leftovers for later in the week.

We really enjoyed our time at the beautiful Casa Por Fin. Our whole family appreciated the opportunity to vacation together in such a gorgeous location! Thank you Anna!

We are located on the western most tip of the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, in the surfing town of Rincon.

It is a unique location since we have waves from the Atlantic which are great for surf, while just a mile or so to the south is the start of the pristine waters of the Caribbean Sea. Por fin Dogmans is right next to the marine reserve. Here you can snorkeling with sea turtles and other marine life right off shore. The location is mapped out on google earth. Just enter 'Por Fin Dogmans beach' in the search box. For address, use Pso Bachon Velazquez.

Some interesting day trips are to La Parquera and the Phosphoresant Bay, the telescope in Aricibo, The Camuy caves, and of course the panoramic views from the winding mountain roads. Zip Lining is close by.

Best of all, the friendly people of Rincon Puerto Rico are helpful and welcoming. GPS coordinates Lat 18.354566261201022 Long -67.26841807365417

Within walking distance, on the beach, to Calypso Bar and Grill , Maria's beach, and the Light house.

ON LINE CALENDAR IS NOT USED SO PLEASE EMAIL FOR AVAILABLE DATES.

New photos will be posted very soon. The beach is the same as always and has not been changed by the hurricane. Still a nice wide tree lined beach. We have made major improvements to the house and are posting photos as we go. Photos are current at this time.
