Sitting high on a hill (but easy access from the street) The Surf Break was constructed to take full advantage of the best views in Rincon. The home is about a 12 minute walk, .3 miles from the beach. A very secure home in a very safe location just a minute walk to one of the most popular bakeries in the area, Puntas Bakery. Three our of four 4 bedrooms have large panoramic ocean sunset views. The large private decks feature white water views, views of the breaks at Indicators and Domes as well as the Rincon Lighthouse.

About Craig

My wife and I live in Northern Virginia and started surfing about 6 years ago. We were looking for a location which did not require many hours of travel or a passport.

Craig purchased this house in 2010

Why Craig chose Puntas

We purchased in the Puntas area of Rincon due to the proximity to all the beaches restaurants and bars. Being on a Point (Puntas) gives us ocean views from the front and back of the house. The people and the neighbors are great. Puntas Bakery (now BIG Bowl) is 100 yards away and is a great inexpensive place to get a bite to eat.

What makes this house unique

Panoramic views of the Caribbean, White water views of the breaks at Domes and Indicators. Fantastic sunsets. Walking distance to Domes Beach, Puntas Bakery (Big Bowl) and several other restaurants and bars.

Beautiful Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Surf Break on our first trip to Puerto Rico. It was amazing - the town of Rincon gave us a real feel of the people and lifestyle on the island. The home was wonderful and had everything that we needed to make our stay perfect. We have used the Home Away site for many trips in the past and I have to say that the amenities in this property were the best so far. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything that we needed to prepare home cooked meals during our stay. It was very nice to just be able to gather groceries after a day at the beach and know that we could hang out in the home, cool off with the A/C and spend time together as a family for dinner. The entire home was so clean and showed attention to detail in making sure that what we needed during our stay was available to us. The rooftop BBQ and pool were amazing too. Thank you for providing us such a great experience on our trip!!

Beautiful house in a convenient location to many beaches and attractions.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and spacious. It accommodated three families and there was room to spare. The house is close to the downtown area and many other attractions. Rincon is really one of the premier City's in Puerto Rico and The Surf Break is in an excellent location in Rincon. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone considering it as a rental.

Great house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the Surf Break. We had 6 adults in the 4 bedrooms and it worked out perfectly. The kitchen was stocked with excellent equipment for making meals and drinks, the bedrooms were very comfortable with great A/C units and balconies (off the master), and the great room was a perfect hang out spot with its big balcony. We were also blown away by the roof deck and the panoramic views, as well as the shaded little pool that was perfect after a hot day. What added a lot to the vacation was the accessibility to the quaint little town of Rincon and the nearby beaches. We enjoyed walking down to the beaches at the bottom of the road (10 mins) as well as driving to other local spots. We had fantastic meals at local restaurants (yelp provided highest rated places) and cooked at home a few times too. This would be a place I would come back to if visiting mainland PR. Thanks for a great vacation.

Beauty and Comfort!

  • 5 of 5

This home is not only beautiful with a fantastic view but so much attention was paid to the fine details for making guests comfortable. The owner and property manager are both very nice, attentive and helpful with any questions or concerns, and the neighbors we encountered were also very friendly. Loved all the beautiful sounds of nature around us, birds, tree frogs, etc. Fantastic location, close to many beaches and restaurants.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review. We had the mindset that one day we would travel to the house with no luggage and for the last 5 years we have kept that hope alive. We constantly look to make improvements to the house both little and big things to make ours and our guests stay the most they can be so are constantly filling luggage with new house items. We have been also very lucky to have Great neighbors. Thanks again for staying with us. Craig

Great place for our group

Great location, top notch finishes and incredible views. Craig was responsive and accommodating for our group of 6 and there was more than enough space for all of us. Will be looking to stay again.

Our Hosts Thought of Everything

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the nicest accommodation and experience we have had with VRBO. Our hosts thought of everything when they prepared this beautiful residence for vacationers. From the pool in the garden to the roof top deck, the accommodations were top notch. Our party of 7 adults had plenty of space and the villa provided space to gather as a group and areas for solitude and privacy when desired. The villa was well stocked with appliances and equipment. Beach chairs and umbrellas were available for use, it featured a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable up to date furniture provided a homey feel. Beautiful art in the form of wooden engraved paintings and art glass throughout added to the welcoming and crisp clean decor. The wine cooler was a nice touch and the magnetic screens made for easy access to the living room deck. Overall this was a great experience and it is highly recommended for a large family or group of friends.
