About John Bacon

I am a Real Estate Broker in Oregon but also spend time every year in Rincon Puerto Rico. In my leisure time, I enjoy RV Camping, Snow Skiing, Travel, Snorkeling, Scuba, Boogie Boarding and also surfing.

John Bacon purchased this house in 2010

Why John Bacon chose Rincon

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!

Beautiful home but noise is an issue

  • 4 out of 5
Everything about the house itself was wonderful. The house was clean and had nice modern furnishings. The beds were comfortable and it was great having AC in each of the bedrooms.

The pool and the upstairs patio were by far the best features of the home. We traveled with a baby and a 4 year old, so the pool was essential! We also had 5 adults in our party, but there was definitely enough space for us all to spread out and have privacy.

Now that being said, there were also several issues with the home that did disrupt our time. The biggest issue was the noise. The house is on a busy road and the road noise was extremely loud. The master bedroom and twin bed are room were the worst since they are closest to the road. It was very difficult to sleep the first few nights and finally resorted to ear plugs once we were able to find them. In addition to the road noise, we woke up to construction every morning at 6:30am!! It was not only a total eye sore, but then we also had to deal with not being able to sleep in on our vacation. It was a major disappointment for us.

There were also a lot of things missing in the home. Firstly, there is no dishwasher. With a party of 7, this made eating in kind of a pain since we had to handwash everything. Also, the blender was broken so we coudn't make frozen tasty alcoholic beverages. Finally, none of the bathtub plugs worked! There is a super nice jet tub but we couldn't use it because the plug didn't work. Huge bummer.

The location however was great. We were right next to some great restaurants and just a few km from the local grocery stores. We would highly recommend Shipwrecked and Pool Side Sushi Bar for food, Joe's Bar for drinks, English Rose for Breakfast, and the Red Door near Sandy Beach for shopping.

The beach near the house is fantastic. It's great for collecting sea glass and shells, and for swimming. We enjoyed our time in Rincon and wish we could still be there!

Comfortable Stay - Awesome Pool

  • 4 out of 5
The property was as listed, we got quite a bit of use of the pool and outside lounge areas. The house had plenty of room for 4 couples; we were not stepping over ourselves and truly had the opportunity to relax. We got a little turned around when trying to reach the house at night but I called the property manager and she stayed on the line with me until we reached the home. She even waited to make sure that we opened the gate to drive our cars into the garage. Excellent customer service. Every morning we went to the bakery in the town square - excellent food and you can't beat the prices. I would definitely recommend this property!

This place was fantastic!

  • 5 out of 5
The home was incredible! Spacious, well maintained with high end finishes. At end of the street best swimming beach in Rincon! Keep in mind most beaches difficult for swimming as reef lines the shore everywhere. Great surfing within a short drive, Domes is 3 min drive and North Shore about 45 min. Only knock is that property is on busy road and you will hear cars zipping by with loud Latino hip/hop at all hours and the site next door is currently under construction. These things were only a minor annoyance that is why I still gave the place 5 stars. Home is really, really nice! Third floor balcony has beautiful water views and surfing around here is really fun. When I come back I will stay here again. Also, we had two families with us with kids under 2 years and it was perfect for us.

A very comfortable home in a great location.

  • 5 out of 5
We were two families, 4 adults and 4 children, that stayed at the Casa Marina last week. The house is everything you think it is when you look at the pictures and description. We enjoyed the house as soon as we arrived. The layout of the house gave us privacy when one of needed it. The pool may be small, but we had so much fun in it. Location is perfect, snorkeling, para sailing, swimming, great restaurants are all just a short walk away. Grocery store and surfing are but a quick drive. The little things like having the laundry room and a garage just made easier. The beds are very comfortable. The rooms are private and have their own temperature control.
Thanks John.

Sincerely,
Dave Langowski

Loved Rincon and the House Just a few Issues

  • 3 out of 5
We stayed as Casa Marina for a month in Jan/Feb 2014. The house is as advertised and is fantastic although showing a few nicks and bruises normal for a rental. It was very clean, the beds are very comfortable, the kitchen was adequately stocked for our needs and there are no shortage of beach towels and chairs for your use. The pool and deck is a great place to spend time. You are centrally located to “downtown” Rincon, a 2 minute walk to the beach, and within a very quick drive to the other beaches in the area.

The owners were great to deal with. One day, for reasons unclear, the Municipality shut off the water to the house. So there we were at 5:00 on a Friday night with no water. We called the assistant property manager and within an hour there was a plumber on site, the owner was calling from the States to make sure we were OK and the water was being turned back on.

There were really only 2 downsides to our entire trip. As a previous review noted, the house is located at a busy intersection. Road 413 is much busier than we had imagined it would be and the Black Eagle Road is also quite busy with traffic to the marina, condos, bars and restaurants. Luckily the bars don’t have loud music playing (only one night in the month) so that was a bonus. Just be aware and don’t be surprised by the amount of traffic as we were. Puerto Rico in general has a lot of traffic and 413 is the route to some of Rincon’s most popular beaches. The bigger issue for us was the construction site next door. The empty lot noted in previous reviews is empty no more. Apparently work started in November 2013 and may have been shut down over Christmas but they were at it full bore when we were there Monday through Friday. Construction workers would start showing up around 6:00 am and by 6:30 they were busy until quitting time at 3:00 pm. The noisiest days were when they were doing concrete pours which they did first thing in the morning (2 – 3 times per week) and earth works putting in storm drains etc. I’m no expert in concrete construction but based on the progress in the month we were there I would expect another month of concrete work and then another 4-6 months of activity. By fall 2014 things should be complete.

For our first trip to Puerto Rico, Rincon was a fantastic experience despite the downsides.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments.... the location is one of the most popular areas on the very western tip of Puerto Rico and Rincon offers a lot for those trying to get away from high rise hotels and have a wonderful experience without needing a car daily... beaches, the plaza and restaurants. As far as the small 1 story villa's being completed by the house, it's my understanding the project will be completed by July 2014. Unfortunately, I had no control over the project nor knew about it until after it began. Anyone looking for a great location to easily walk to many places including the best swimming beach should really find their stay as a perfect place with easy access for everyone in the group. Thank you again for the comments as we always want complete openness and always do our best to give the best representation... it can be a fine choice between everything within walking distance and 100% silence 24/7 so if you are looking for a home with complete quiet you would be better off with a vacation home up in the nearby mountains but please remember, that will mean using a car for going anywhere... several people who have stayed at the home after experiencing the quiet mountain homes continue to come to this home year after year as they love the convenience of walking easily to the beach and restaurants as well as allowing all the guests to come and go as they please without needing a car or walking up steep hills to get back to another house farther away...

Excellent and would book again.

  • 5 out of 5
One of our best vacations yet. We flew into San Juan and the drive was about 2 hours but nothing too bad.

This house was awesome. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the property was very clean and well maintained. The location near the beach is perfect and within walking distance to several great places to hang out and grab some food.

Grocery stores are a few mile drive but other than stocking up on supplies, we really never had to leave the property.

The beach at the end of the street was nice and the water was crystal clear. There's a smooth rock ledge when you first enter the water and it extends out about 20 feet or so and then drops off a couple of feet so not good for catching any waves but great for swimming and snorkeling.

The snorkeling at the beach and right around the corner was great and we never really had to venture much farther.

The house, with it's great backyard and pool were very private and comfortable to just hang around at and we enjoyed plenty of time just sitting by the pool before we headed to the beach.

AC at the house worked great and we were always comfortable. 3rd floor balcony was nice but we never really used it that much.

Overall a great place that we felt very safe and comfortable at and would love to go again but maybe next time fly into the closer airport and save the hassle of the drive back to San Juan.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments... We always try to do our best to make everyone as happy at the house as possible and chose the location based on easy beach access and restaurants without the hassle of getting in a car every time you want to just grab a bite to eat, grab a drink or stroll easily to the beach. I know for many it's a toss up between San Juan and Aguadilla on airports (cost factor/departing city, etc.) but the most important thing is to get to Rincon... well unless you prefer Big Hotels and City Life... I picked the location from my home based on a lot of factors but mainly the Rincon Community, laid back lifestyle and beautiful beaches/sunsets you can't find anywhere else on the island. Live, Love and Enjoy!! Peace.

Perfectly located for those who don't want to drive a lot while on their vacation. Less than a minutes walk to the beach, resturants and 4 minutes walk to other resturants and the local town plaza. This location offers a fantastic cove where you can swim in the ocean or walk just around the corner and enjoy nice surfing opportunities.
