Walk to all west side surf breaks. The Surfrider Foundation picked Maria's Beach #3 on their top ten list. They said it could possibly be America's best-kept surfing secret. Not ready for the big one? No problem, Surf lessons and rentals are available locally.

Located right in front of the house is Reserva Marina Tres Palmas. Home to one of the largest elkhorn coral populations in the Caribbean, where you can snorkel with endangered turtles. For scuba, take a day trip to Desecheo Island, a wildlife preserve just offshore, that offers world class diving.

You can walk to town, restaurants, marina and dive shop from the house where you can also find deep sea and local fishing charters. At the point is Punta Higuero Lighthouse, home to Rincon's whale watching park and a perfect place to view the surfing at Domes and Indicators beaches.

Maybe you just want to relax on the beach under a palm tree or stroll for miles looking for shells and beach glass. Nearby you can hike, bike or horseback ride. Take a day trip to the rain forest, caves, Rum factory or maybe just go shopping.

Nighttime brings Reggae and Calypso music, happy hours, relaxed dining or maybe even a little Casino action in nearby Mayaguez.

About Ken Collings

We have been coming to Rincon to surf & vacation since 1977. After exploring locales from the Bahamas to Europe & Hawaii to Australia, nowhere do we feel so relaxed & at home as in Rincon. Having grown up on & around the ocean & raising our family on Cape Cod, we cherish every moment we spend in this magical place. We hope you can come discover & enjoy as well!

Ken Collings purchased this house in 2004

Why Ken Collings chose Puerto Rico

We have always loved the Ensenada area of Rincon because it's the perfect spot to be close to all the best surf breaks on the West/Southside or Carribean Sea side of the Point. The nicest local people you will ever meet. A quiet, family neighborhood, plus walking distance to great restaurants, the dive shop and even town. Our side of the Point tends to be less windy than the Northside, yet always offers a nice breeze.

What makes this house unique

The Tres Palmas Marine Reserve is right out in front of the house! This protected area off of Steps Beach offers fabulous snorkeling! Please view our Listing Video! See endangered turtles, schools of tropical fish, sometimes Dolphin and Whale sightings. Many consider Steps Beach THE BEST beach around. A roof top sunset from Casa Palmas looking out over the big wave break of Tres Palmas can be very awe inspiring!!

a fantastic stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at this rental was truly fantastic.. the weather was amazing, the sunset every night was memorable. It was great to be able to walk along the beach to Copa Llena restaurant at the end of the day to watch the sunset and enjoy the food/relax.

our kids didn't appreciate the reef in front of the house as much as I'd hoped however, it was lovely none the less.

my only complaint may be that there's only 1 toilet for 5 people which was inconvinent at times. However, the outdoor shower was really nice and relieved the stress of having only one bathroom for 5 people.

We'd definitely enjoyed our stay at this rental.

My family and I had a wonderful stay at casa palmas. It was clean and had everything we needed and more to make are stay comfortable. The house is located in a great location. Beaches and restaurants are all within walking distance. The house is beautiful inside and out! I would rent again for sure but for a longer period of time! One week is not enough😀

All we hoped and more

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place that was not too small and cramped. Its difficult to determine, looking at pictures, how spacious an apartment is. Casa Palmas was absolutely perfect in this regard. Lots of room, both indoors and outside. That the apartment was so well maintained and well equipped was an added bonus. And then there is the view and the ideal location, on a quiet corner near to not only the beach but also the town. We spent the second half of our vacation on the east coast but wish we had stayed put in Casa Palmas. We will most certainly be back for more.

Loved every minute of it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Palmas was just as advertised. It was clean and comfortable, fully equipped on a very quite street (until we got there). We loved the veranda with its great views. Casa Palmas is in a great neighborhood in a great little town. The beach is walking distance with plenty of activities for all ages. Ken was great to work with and delivered on all his promises! My family & i would definitely recommend Ken's place & we are already planning a longer trip next year. If you're looking for a great tropical escape, Casa Palmas is the place to go!! Thank you Ken & we'll see you next year

Super House in a Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Casa Palmas, first time with friends, second time with family. It was clean and comfortable, fully equipped. We especially enjoyed the veranda with its cool breezes and great views. It is a great base for exploring (by car) many sites that part of the Island offers. Casa Palmas is a great neighborhood in a great little town. The beach is a short walk and offers a nice tidal pool for the kiddies, as well as world class snorkeling just off shore. Ken was prompt and patient with all our requests, and was fantastic to work with! Definitely recommend, we hope to return for a longer stay. Ken, thanks for sharing your house.
