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!

Rincon Perfection

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 travelled to Rincon, Puerto Rico for a slightly off-the-beaten-path spring break. We imagined an undiscovered paradise where the beaches were perfect, the food amazing and the people were warm and welcoming to we Gringos. We found it. Rincon is the place you've imagined. It's a real place. It's a community where everyone seems to positively celebrate life even through hardships like hurricanes and governmental mismanagement. And for this week to be just perfect we needed the right home, one that is comfortable, owned by caring people and has magnificent natural beauty views. We found it. Villa 1 at Pelican pass was 'the best deal in town' and offered us great proximity to Rincon, beautiful morning views, crashing waves all night long for perfect sleep - and an owner is Kathy who was available for whatever needed.

The gated home is very safe and private despite being adjacent to villa 2. We never saw the neighbors unless we wanted to peek over the gate. The downstairs living spaces are easy and relaxed. The TV works and we watched some NCAA hoops. The kitchen has all we needed to cook, but we opted to eat in town every night because of the quality of the Rincon food scene. The bedrooms all have great AC and easily cool to chilly if you so desire. The beds and linens and towels are all clean, first rate. The showers are great, plenty of Hot H2O. The decks and patio are the best part. PR has had a severe beach erosion, but it doesn't at all diminish from your chances to see the beautiful water, and there are awesome beaches nearby at Domes and Steps. Go to PR. It's got soul. Stay at Pelican Pass. You will be happy.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

The stay was lovely. Just a few last touches remained after the storm but it was in excellent shape.

I was worried there would not be a beach remaining. To access the water, it’s just on the side of the property. Nice swimmable water!

It’s only a quick drive into town, so get to know some of the little shops. It’s a fun, beachy, laid back place and the home is a VERY nice place to be laid back.

Gorgeous Ocean Front Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Rincon in June 2018. The only left over evidence of the hurricane damage was at the beaches. You can see that a lot of sand had been washed out. They were still very pretty and usable....and you could see that they were coming back. Snorkeling,beaching and swimming were are great at each beach we went to.

We loved this home and are already making plans to come back next year. The home had 3 big bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom and shower. Each room had a balcony, 2 of the rooms had balcony's that overlooked the ocean. The kids snorkeled and swam right there at the house. The town was very tourist friendly. Lots of English speakers and all were all incredibly friendly. There is also big supermarket less than 5 minutes from the home. The local beaches were great and we swam with a turtle at Steps beach. The owners were very quick to answer questions and the checkin/checkout process was the easiest I have experienced.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am so glad you got to snorkel at steps and in front of the house. Swimming with turtles is a plus!! We would love to see you again.

Breathtaking Ocean View and Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying at this magnificent property which was conveniently located, well-furnished, well-supplied, spacious, and directly on the ocean. We had more than enough space to un-wind so we felt comfortable. Owners were dependable, prompt with response time, and extremely accommodating. The ocean view is absolutely breathtaking from most of the property and mountain views are visible from the front of the house; A/C units in every room ensured we stayed cool. Thanks for your hospitality :)
