A Truly Private & Elegant Vacation Villa: Amapola House is a multi-level private villa, surrounded by tropical landscapes and offers space, comfort and total privacy in a serene Caribbean setting- it's not a 'condo villa', 'shared villa', 'villa apartment', nor a 'villa unit'. All the facilities are for the exclusive use of our Guests. There are plenty of spaces for groups or for intimate moments. Every guest sleeps comfortably in a bed (no futons or pull outs) with a high-quality mattress and high-count linens. Huge closets keep your accommodations spacious. Our oversized towels are plush and so are our beach towels. The large bathrooms, with rain forest showers, glass basins and oversized mirrors, allow you to pamper yourself as you prepare for the evening after a day at the beach or a day trip. iPod Stereo, DVD Players, Flat screen TV's and full cable service provide entertainment between outings. High-speed Internet keeps you connected. Our manager is nearby and available to ensure that your stay is a comfortable one.

VIP & Concierge Services: The Amapola House VIP Arrival & Departure Service includes a personal familiarization tour at check-in and personal assistance at check out. Upon your arrival, our manager will be waiting to give you a tour of the villa and show you all our amenities and answer all your questions. You'll be provided with your own up-to-date guidebooks and our local newspaper that tells you all the places to go and everything that's happening during your stay. 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.

Surf, Dive, Water Sports & More: Rincon is the Surfing Capital of the Caribbean. Surf lessons are available. You can dive our reefs or take a day trip to Desecheo Island, a National Parks Wildlife Refuge, with its cobalt blue waters and thousands of marine species, or you can snorkel along our many shore reefs for awesome underwater discoveries. Diving lessons are available. Rincon offers day and sunset sail trips, para-sailing, sail-boating and banana boat rides. Shore horseback tours are also available. Rincon is the only place in Puerto Rico where you can watch Humpback Whales frolic right off-shore during their Winter migration.

Amapola House: More Than We Expected

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 03-Aug-2008
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2008
We're among the first to stay at Amapola House, because it's brand new. It's much more than what we saw online. The stay was totally enjoyable. The place is quiet has everything you'd want for a beach-area villa and more. The view from the rooftop is awesome, with unforgettable sunsets, especially from the spa tub. We loved all the modern touches, such as super-quiet A/Cs, the bar and wine cooler, silky mega-count linens and super thick towels. The beaches, only minutes away, were pristine and we had great lunches and dinners at the many restaurants located at Sandy Beach; the beach bars had live music and friendly barkeeps and locals. We took advantage of the promotional introductory rates, but will gladly pay the full rate to spend more time at Amapola House when we return for our Winter vacation.

Owner's Response: At Amapola House, we appreciate the feedback that we receive from our Guests. We strive to improve our accommodations and amenities to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay, by providing sensible lodging services in an elegant setting, surrounded by the natural beauty of Rincon.

Great villa, awesome vacation!

All my family enjoyed our time in Puerto Rico. The villa was great, exactly as described. Nice, clean, everything worked perfectly including wi-fi. Tips for beach goers, just 15 miles away is a perfect spot called "Crash Boat Beach" in Aquadilla with pristine clear water and white sand. For divers I would definitely recommend go to Desicheo Island with Taino divers. Visibility was about 100 ft, beautiful reef and shore caverns. Overall great vacation. Thanks you Anthony for a perfect place.

Wow, what a great time! We stayed at the Amapola House last weekend, and never wanted to leave! We are a group of 20-something relatives (brothers, sisters, cousins, significant others, etc.), and the Amapola House was perfect for us. It was clean and cozy, and its well-appointed interior and personal touches made it feel like a "home" and not like just another vacation rental. The property manager/concierge lives close-by and is very accomodating (for instance, we were able to check in much earlier than expected due to a change in our arrival plans). The house is located within easy walking (or stumbling... as might have been the case once or twice for us!) distance from Sandy Beach and the numerous bars and restaurants located near the beach (such as Tamboo and Casa Verde). The rooftop patio is truly a magical place at night, with millions and millions of stars visible. One tip: Let the hot tub start warming up HOURS before you want to use it - same goes for the oven. My brother who is an engineer said this might have more to do with the Puerto Rican power grid and less to do with the functionality of the appliances themselves.

Summary: Great house, great memories, great location. You will not be disappointed with this place - by far the best rental in this size and price range I've seen in all our trips to Rincon!

A nice place to stay in Rincon

My husband and I recently stayed at Amapola House with our families. We were impressed with how immaculate and pretty the house was. It was very nice to have the separate apartment downstairs too for some privacy. The view is lovely from the deck or the roof and the hot tub was great too. It would be nice to have a little more shade on the roof, maybe over the table. You can walk down the big hill to Sandy Beach, which is beautiful, though it was quite windy with large waves the whole time we were there so it was preferable to drive around the corner to Tres Palmes for swimming or snorkling. The outdoor shower was useful and the indoor hot showers were lovely - when you turn on the shower, don't turn the handle all the way to the right, only turn it a little (the hot & cold is reversed). Ode to the Elephants is very close, with good music and atmosphere, and pretty good Thai food too. :)

Only a couple of things detracted a little from our stay; one was that there weren't really any basics in the house upon arrival; often in rental houses you'll find things like salt and pepper left over from previous guests; Amapola kitchen was basically bare. And the kitchen is not very big; it's quite easy to fill the little refrigerator to overflowing. Not a big deal though. The other thing was that we'd somehow missed that we were supposed to check out by 10am on the last day. Understandable, as they need to clean and prepare for the next guest, but to make breakfast and clean up and pack everything by 10am can be a bit rushed. Also no big deal.

We very much appreciated the dominoes set, and spent some quality family time learning some games, and the ipod sound set-up, which let us have nice background music going during cooking and dinner. I would not hesitate to recommend Amapola House to friends. :)

Owner's Response: We always welcome great feedback from our Guests at Amapola House. We strive to make sure that our Guests find a clean, modern and beautiful home when they arrive for their vacations.
As in most self-catered vacation rentals, when Guests check-out, they sometimes leave ice, salt, pepper, sugar and other condiments in the kitchen. If they are sealed, our staff is instructed to leave them for arriving guests. Our Concierge can purchase groceries for Guests, prior to arrival, by prior arrangement.
Our galley kitchen is similar to most other vacation rentals and is designed for eight guests. With the many supermarkets, grocery stores, bakeries and nearby restaurants, most guests find it just right.
We also offer a wine cooler, which may guests use to chill other beverages, in order to provide more space in the refrigerator. Our full size range, microwave oven and BBQ grill provide a variety of cooking choices. The lower level studio also has a refrigerator, microwave-convection oven and a coffeemaker.
Due to a construction defect, the hot water in the showers comes out before the cold water. Our Concierge always makes sure to point that out during the check-in tour and is readily available to answer any questions about Amapola House and its amenities.
At Amapola House, we're flexible with our guest departures and if no one is coming in on the same day we can allow more time, if requested. Our check-out time is actually 11:00 AM, as in most vacation rentals. Check-in and check-out times are listed in our two Guest Guidebooks, rental agreements, websites and our Concierge relays that information during check-in.
We're re continually glad to hear that Amapola House and its surroundings is so well enjoyed by everyone that stays with us.
