About the property

3 A/C Bedrooms, with private baths and balconies, Oceanfront private patio



There is no finer place to vacation then Rincon, PR. From surfing and snorkeling to hiking and golfing, Rincon offers it all. Along with the multitude of daytime activities, Rincon also has an active nightlife, with many oceanfront bars, and restaurants serving freshly caught seafood. If dining in is your preference, the close proximity of a local fish markets and grocery store (within two miles) allow for you to create your own oceanfront dining experience on your private patio.

Every air-conditioned bedroom has its own private en suite bathroom and private balcony, making this house perfect for couples to have a romantic getaway or for family retreats with the children. Wake to the sunrise over the mountains in the east, and finish the day watching the beautiful sunset melt into the blue Caribbean Sea. While here you will not want to miss a sunset, and almost every room and your own private patio provides a fabulous view.

This private luxury Rincon vacation rental is an elegant and comfortable home directly on the CARIBBEAN SEA! Nothing beats falling asleep to the soothing sound of gentle waves, and in our comfortable beds you will sleep soundly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After years of booking vacation homes online (including some mistakes and bad choices) I have become very adept at judging websites and their representations, photos, and narratives. Pelican Pass was a standout during my search and ultimately proved to be the perfect place for my wife and our 2 friends to spend a long weekend celebrating my 50th birthday. The house matched the online photos and even exceeded the charm, comfort, and ambience that we anticipated before arriving. The process of booking, arriving, and departing was simple and smooth, and the Owner was always responsive to any questions we had. We hope to be back, but this time with our we can share the experience with them!

  • 5 of 5

This place is very affordable, right on the ocean, and the owners are super friendly! You can hear the ocean crashing against the sea wall at night, very close to Rincon, and easy access to highway 2 which takes you north/northwest to Aguadilla and beyond. Highly recommend this place for a surf getaway or family vacation. Thank you to the Pelican Pass family.

The Pelican Villa was perfect for our stay in Puerto Rico. The house is beautifully decorated, clean

  • 5 of 5

The Pelican Villa was perfect for our stay in Puerto Rico. The house is beautifully decorated, clean, the beds were comfy; is amazing and great for the family. We had a fabulous time hanging by the backyard and looking the sunsets. The backyard is breathtaking. Enough pool towels for everyone, fun floats and the TV was amazing. Kitchen was well stocked with supplies. It’s a nice quiet neighborhood. Perfect location; you can drive for fresh groceries everyday. The Villa is close to everything you’d want to do in Rincón.

We will definitely be back!

Perfect beach house for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Pelican Pass. The home was spacious for our family of 6 and it was right on a beautiful beach. The home was equipped with kitchen basics and some extras that other vacationers have left behind-sunscreen, pantry items, Bluetooth speaker-that was a nice touch. The beds were very comfortable, with each bedroom having its own bathroom and balcony!

The beach was fairly private even though there was public access nearby. The waves were very calm (July) for our little ones and perfect for the teenager and adults to snorkel. We loved staying here and would choose it again!
