Private pool, lush landscaping and easy walking will make this a fantastic location for you and your guests. The incredible sunsets on the terrace are the perfect way to end your days of outdoor activities. The property has a 2 car garage, is fully walled and has a nice backyard with private pool, large palm trees, and patio table.

During your stay, enjoy snorkeling, boating, sunbathing at the beach, fishing, scuba diving, sailing, horseback riding and para-sailing, all within steps from your vacation home.

Rincon, The Town Center Plaza and Area: Rincon means 'Corner' or 'Niche' in Spanish and is a perfect description of our location in the northwest corner of Puerto Rico, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea. Rincon remains part of the 'Undiscovered Caribbean' and has been Puerto Rico's favorite vacation destination for years! Its unique location creates some of the best surfing waves in the world when the currents collide from October to April but also has many beaches for those who prefer calm glass like waters for swimming and snorkeling.

Escape the big hotel scene in Rincon where visitors are just another part of life in paradise. You'll enjoy the activity of intimate beaches, spectacular sunsets, the romantic lighthouse. Downtown Rincon has a traditional plaza with bakeries and restaurants as well as local artist works and a microbrew pub.

About John Bacon & John Velez

My day job is as a Real Estate Broker in Oregon but I've spent over 25 years in Rincon Puerto Rico, first as a tourist and later as a host. In my leisure time, I enjoy RV Camping, Snow Skiing, Travel, Snorkeling, Scuba, Boogie Boarding and also surfing.

John Bacon & John Velez purchased this house in 2010

Why John Bacon & John Velez chose Ensenada

The location with easy access to beaches, restaurants, and many other local activities without needing a car to get everywhere was really important to me and this home had all of those so I bought it, installed a wonderful pool and lush tropical landscaping, put in nice furnishings I would enjoy on vacation... the home is perfectly located just steps from not just any beach but 2 unique beaches. One is calm and great for children and swimming while the other is a great hangout for those wishing to surf and I love having the option that this particular location allows.

Just a short 5 minute walk and you are in town square with many different types of restaurants and bakeries.

I hand picked all the colors and new furniture for this exceptional home because I wanted guests to feel just as much at home here as I do when I am staying in it.

What makes this house unique

Close to everything you and your guests want within walking distance and yet an oasis when you want it... Property is perfectly located steps to an easy calm beach for sun and swimming as well as a minutes drive to the surfing beaches... several local restaurants, one has a great beach bar are close enough to walk (1 or 2 minutes from the house) and yet, far enough that you get to enjoy the home not right next to it when it's time to go home. Parents and kids love the location as it has something to offer for everyone...

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first trip to Puerto Rico. The house is right on the corner and easy to find is gated and new. We found the home to be well furnished and comfortable. The 4 bedrooms worked perfect for our group, very pleased with the beds too. 3 bathrooms allowed all of us to get ready quickly. A short walk to our beach, choice of calm waters or waves further N/W. There are 2 restaurants (Shipwreck) and a dive shop very close by. Villa Cofresci had a good beach, patio bar, GREAT restaurant!

great house, great location

  • 4 of 5

Restaurants and beach at the bottom of the hill are all good. Great Snorkeling in walking distance at Tres Palmas. Everything except the ice maker worked in the house, and the only things we would add are kitchen linens and some rugs to help keep the water and sand out.

Great pool, great time. Thank you.

Perfect house and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience staying in John's house. Everything was perfect for my family. The house was very clean and had everything we needed to cook meals and enjoy our stay. There was plenty of space for 4 adults and two children (age 3 & 5). The upstairs deck was incredible with a great view but we spent most of our time by the pool or at the beach. The pool was great for a dip and my kids loved swimming in it. The location was great for walking to restaurants and the beach yet the house was a very private oasis. We could walk to several restaurants and the beach was a very quick walk away with a great swimming area. Rincon has recovered nicely from Maria and is ready for visitors.

Great home in a great location. Perfect for groups of up to 8 people.

  • 5 of 5

This house was very nice. We had a great time there.

Positives: Great pool, great location, excellent upstairs outdoor sitting area, very fast internet, washer and dryer, nice kitchen with modern appliances.

Negatives: Beds were very firm, internet does not reach the 3rd floor, no TVs in the bedrooms, living room furniture needs replaced.

During a heavy rainfall, one of the bedrooms and the hallway on the second floor flooded. Housekeeping and maintenance workers arrived within 30 minutes of us calling and had it completely clean within an hour. I was very impressed with their prompt response.
