About the Property

4 levels, 4 large bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps up to 8

Puerto Rico’s Amapola House is a private getaway minutes from the quaint town of Rincon, nestled near sweeping hillsides and tropical scenery in the Caribbean islands. Located a few minutes away from pristine Sandy Beach and the best Rincon restaurants and bars, Amapola House provides a comfortable resting place for those that want to have an activity-filled day, but a quiet place to return to at night. Backup electric and water ensure a completely pleasant stay.
The owners make sure that Amapola House feels more like second home than a hotel. Built by the Avilés family, who has lived in the area for generations, the house features modern design and stylish décor. Named after the hibiscus flowers that used to bloom on the property of the family matriarch, Amelia Avilés, Amapola House features original paintings, family heirlooms and historic surfing photos and sepias of Old Rincon going back to the 1890’s.
Arriving Guests receive a tour with the caretaker, who answers any questions about the house or what to do while in Rincon. Once situated, guests can sit in comfortable chairs and look out into the tropical scenery from the Starlight Veranda, the private suite terrace or the lower pool deck. They can also sunbathe on the Sunset Sky Deck, which also features a jumbo-sized spa tub, perfect for relaxing evenings.

Amapola House is a four-level vacation home with four bedrooms. All the bedrooms include large closets and either a queen bed or two twin beds. With three full bathrooms, the house comfortably accommodates up to eight people. Rooms are decorated in rich yellow and terracotta tones in a contemporary style. A private suite is located on its own level with a private terrace and outdoor dining area. Guests who like to cook on holiday will love the fully equipped kitchen and cocktail bar. Amapola House also offers a dining service for eight, and several great restaurants are minutes away.
Amapola House offers a unique vacation experience that vastly differs from others in the area. Located in a private area that is only reachable through nearly untraveled roads, it gives guests seclusion and tranquility, while still being close to the area’s best beaches and hotspots. The art, antiques and photos offer a glimpse into Rincon’s past and the history of surfing. Guests will truly feel at home at Amapola House, which was designed to do just that.
The golden sands and pristine waters of Sandy Beach are only two minutes by car and ten minutes on foot. Our Sky Deck sunsets are unforgettable and and the nights are filled with millions of stars and serious moonlight.
The interior is designer-decorated and contains a private collection of heirloom antiques and vintage photographs of Old Rincon and Surfing legends, which are part of The Amapola House Story.
The Amapola House 24/7 VIP Arrival & Departure Service includes a personal tour at check-in and personal assistance at check out. Additional Amapola House Concierge Services include local taxi service, airport transportation, baby sitting, maid and laundry service, as well as grocery shopping and catered food services.
Everyone that stays at Amapola House only regrets not staying longer and wishes to return soon, as indicated in our Guest Book entries.
Our kitchen and bar are well-equipped. Guest sleeps quite comfortably in beds with high-quality mattresses and high-count linens (no futons or pull outs). Extra large closets keep your living accommodations spacious.
Our oversized towels are plush and so are our beach towels. The large bathrooms offer rain shower heads, glass basins and oversized mirrors to allow you to pamper yourself as you prepare for the evening, after a day at the beach or a day trip.
iPod stereos, DVD players, flat screen TV's and full cable TV service provide entertainment between outings. High-speed wireless Internet keeps you connected when you want to be.
Our caretaker is always nearby and available to assist you during your stay at Amapola House and to ensure that your stay is a comfortable one.

Google Error Note: Google has incorrectly added the nearby town of Aguada and an incorrect 00602 zip code to our location. Our true location is Amapola House, Carr Vista Linda (413 Interior), Bo. Puntas, Rincon, Puerto Rico 00677. There are no actual house numbers in our rural area.

Rincon is a wonderful and secluded beach town that has allowed time and the troubles of the world to pass it by. It is a special place, filled with delightful sights, sounds and friendly people. If you haven't been to Rincon, Puerto Rico, visit us soon, but be warned: you may never want to leave.

In Rincon, a palpable positive energy perks you up and makes you want to swim, dive, fish, snorkel, surf, body-board, sail, hike, ride, eat, drink, party and find romance.

Surf big waves at the north beaches, then snorkel in the calm waters at the south beaches. See humpback whales frolic near the shore, during the Winter. Take a boat trip to nearby Desecheo Island and go fishing, snorkel its shallow emerald pools, or dive a reef wall. Explore tropical forest and seaside nature trails. Eat & Drink at our great restaurants and beach bars and enjoy a wide range of delicious Caribbean cooking. In Rincon, Puerto Rico, USA, no American Passport is required.

Other Activities: casinos, clubs, salsa dancing

Golf: Golf at nearby Borinquen Golf Club, located only 25 minutes away from Amapola House.
