You could spit into the ocean or even fish from the back yard. . A place where you can have a BBQ just feet from the ocean, it is like camping on the beach in a house.There are no other vacation rentals in the area and it is located in a very unique Puerto Rican neighborhood about two miles from town.For a truly Puerto Rican vacation this is the place with a beach colmado (small store) one block down the road with cold medalla beers and fried meat pies (empanadillas). Each unit has it's own BBQ, balcony with table, washing machine and enterance. the yard is a common area.

You can pay more but not gong to get more, this is the lest expensive property in Rincon that is directly on the beach.

We lost a lot of trees from hurricane Maria but our beach is just fine with more sand then before the storm.

Paradise on the Beach in Puerto Rico

  • 5 of 5

First off- I have to RAVE over our Host Joe Swider. He was so generous and met us at 2am, since our flight got in late and then we had a long drive to beach house. It was a quiet place and had everything we needed except food for the week. There was some water and condiments already there, and at the end of the week, we too left spices and condiments for the next guests. Joe was so kind and anything we needed, he was right there. Fresh linen and towels. There is also a washing maching on the back porch. ****If you are looking for a pretty private beach, this is the one. You literally walk out your back door, across the yard and you are on your beach. We stayed an entire week. Be combed the beach every morning for sea shells and loved walking the beach. The moon light was beautiful. We didn't see anyone on the beach until Friday and they we all gone by Saturday. So it's pretty private. We LOVED it there and Joe was AMAZING. We would love to visit again.

Rustic beach house - right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little beach house and the location was perfect - right on the beach in a quiet little neighborhood, with a short drive to Rincon. We stayed in the lower unit which has three small bedrooms, one bath with tub and shower and an open area with small kitchen, dining and sitting area. The kitchen is fine for cooking and has a full size fridge, microwave and gas range. There isn't any hot water in the kitchen, but we just boiled a pan of water when we needed to wash dishes. So, it's rustic, but just fine for us. It was immaculately clean, with nice bedding and a very comfortable queen bed in the master bedroom. The other two bedrooms have two twin beds in each, and I can't speak to their comfort, as we didn't use them. The small yard is nice and the deck off the yard is spacious and comfortable. The gas barbecue was nice to have and we did use it for steaks one evening.

Best of all is the beach! Open the gate to the yard, step down about four stairs and you're there! We took chairs down to the beach every morning and had our coffee there - heavenly!

Joe and his wife Pilar were wonderful hosts, and Joe stopped by to see how things were going and visit for a bit several times. We sure enjoyed getting to know him and we are grateful that he shares this little gem of a house with others! We will be back - no doubt about it!

Enjoyed the place. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

House is a private home with all the amenities anyone would need. It was a pleasure to meet Joe and his wife. Joe and I had much in common. Both lived in New Mexico. In fact, I attended the university in the city he lived in before retiring. I enjoyed sharing stories with him. Joe met us late night as our flight was delayed. Showed us to the home and bid us goodnight. The next morning Joe came over for us to settle up the remainder of the rental amount. Joe brought us a fresh quart of milk and we had coffee while we settled up and getting to know each other. That was very nice of Joe to do that. He brought my wife a couple of fishing rods for her to use. One of the nights our grand kids cooked a large meal of Paella and Joe and his wife joined us as well as some friends of ours from a nearby city. It was a beautiful evening. All in all, Joe did everything to make us very comfortable in the house. Could not have asked for more. Right on the beach with a completely equipped home with everything any one would need. We are planning on returning next year about the same time for our grandson's wedding, and will be staying again with Joe.

Thank you very much, Joe. Looking forward to September 2017.

Best Regards,

Definitely a place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at the Barrero beach house. if you want to wake up to your own ocean front , this is the place to come. not only you wake up to the sound of the waves but you go to sleep just the same. Relaxing, drinking, eating and watching the sunset. whats better than that your own private beach house. The house was well kept and everything you need is there. Joe made sure everything was in place and there anytime you call. We are definitely looking forward to our next stay again, again and again. Thank you joe for everything! from Rafi and norma. : )
