Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Rincon

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths,1 fouton and air mattresses available when needed

WiFi just added to our home for all of your computing needs! Please note we only rent the entire house with cabana, we do not break it up for rental. See video walkthrough at tresamigosbeachhouse. com. Walk out the back door and you're on the beach! When you step into it, you are enveloped with a sense of tranquility and beauty. You watch awesome sunsets with a glass of wine from the lanai swings. At night you are lulled by the sounds of the coqui tree frogs and ocean waves. In the mornings, the sparkling blue Caribbean catches your breath. In the afternoon you take a nap to the sound of the gently blowing trade winds.

You can walk to the ocean at 7am, stand on the beach and feel the excitement of the surfers taking their first wave, fifty yards away from you. In the evening, you can stroll down to El Faro, Rincon's lighthouse park, stopping on your way for a sundown drink at the Calypso Cafe.

Amigos Beach House sits on a quarter acre of land set back 100 yards from the Caribbean. It lies on the westernmost tip of Puerto Rico in the small town of Rincon, known as the 'Pueblo de los Bellos Atardeceres', the Town of Beautiful Sunsets. Amigos Beach House faces the west and the entire side of the house is a large screened lanai open to the sunsets, the surf, the Caribbean Trade Winds (the 'trades'), and in season, the migrating whales.

The 1100 square foot main living area is on the second floor and is reached by exterior wooden steps curving up from the end of the driveway. The house is canopied by Almond, Mango and Mahogany trees, giving the feeling of being in a treehouse...but with all the connivances of a contemporary home. On the upper main level, there are two bedrooms, two full baths, a fully equipped kitchen, and the open dining room - living area extending from the center of the main cupola out to the lanai (porch).

The cabana is a separate apartment on the ground floor with its own entrance, three steps up from the breezeway. The cabana has a bedroom, a full bath, and a kitchen-living room opening onto the screened lanai, similar to the main floor. The bedroom has AC. The cabana also has Mexican tile accents and wooden beam ceiling with windows on all 4 sides allowing the trades to blow through. Its 400 square feet added to the main floor make 1500 square feet of living space.

The Amigos Beach House is a unique wooden 12 sided dodecagon. The 8' walls rise to a central 16' windowed cupola with a Casa Blanca fan. The cathedral ceiling is natural wooden beams. Because of the open design, the trades blow gently through the house year round, assisted by Casa Blanca fans in each room. The bedrooms have split air conditioning units blended into the architectural integrity. The beige peach ceramic tile floors keep the house cool to the feet. There are Mexican tile accents in the kitchen and baths. The house has Anderson windows less than a year old. The wooden roof is covered with reflective galvalum. There is an air space between the wood and the galvalum layers, adding to the house's coolness. The house has a passive air conditioning system of roof vents with wind-powered suction hoods, and air vents between rooms and around the exterior where the walls meet the ceiling.

The exterior's natural wood camouflages it into the surroundings. Amigos Beach House is not visible from the road, it is about 100 yards away. The asphalt drive from the main road ends in a graveled breezeway under the house. The breezeway leads through to the front yard, and serves as a relaxation area with entrances to the utility shed and the laundry room. At the beach end of the breezeway is the patio table area with a Weber grill and hammock. The front yard has an outdoor beach shower, common in the Caribbean. At the corner edge of the front yard is the beach gate and steps down to the ocean.

The fenced yard is mature and well treed. In addition to the mango, there are banana and coconut palms, lime, avocado, and breadfruit trees. There are Hibiscus, Jasmine, and Bougainvillea bushes, and Ylang-Ylang tree and various flowers like Buddha Lilies and Mira Mirandas (Impatience).

About Daniel Shields

A surfing father of 2 boys who owns this house with friends who surf also! We hail from New Jersey and frequently vacation at Amigos Beach House to retreat from the hustle and bustle and the hectic lifestyle back in New Jersey! Amigos Beach House is our escape!

Daniel Shields purchased this house in 1998

Why Daniel Shields chose Rincon

Rincon is simply the best. The beaches, the people, the laid back lifestyle. Rincon has it all!

What makes this house unique

Surfing, snorkeling, relaxing on the beach. Whipping up Pina Coladas and watching the sunsets from the upstairs porch and sleeping to the sounds of the ocean waves. Walking to Calypso, enjoying happy hour and then cooking out on the grill while the kids can watch NY football upstairs!

Best Spot On The Island

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time returning to Tres Amigos Beach House, we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. The house is amazing. Myself, as a surfer, can check the waves without even getting out of bed! Just steps away from the beach, with private access, my wife and kids could lounge and watch me surf / walk back to the house whenever they want. When sitting outside on the patio, inside the house, or swinging in the hammock, the sunset is just magnificent and breathtaking. Everyone is friendly, even going in to town, you never feel unsafe or unsure, as most everyone speaks English and is very approachable - never a worry in the world. We even traveled to some of the nearby resorts to lay near the pool and check out their restaurants - all were very accommodating. Every restaurant in the area has great food and we didn't have one bad meal. We highly recommend staying at Amigos Beach House and we'll definitely be back again! Thanks!

an awesome place to hang with your friends

  • 5 of 5

This house is beyond cool...like a tropical tree house right on the beach with one of the best surf breaks (Dogman's) right in your back yard. Owned by surfers and walking distance to a bunch of other great surf breaks and cool spots to eat, you are in good hands if you are staying here. Beautiful views of the beach and a huge yard as well, great for families or large groups coming down with two floors to accommodate everyone and plenty of common space to hang out.

SIMPLY THE BEST

  • 5 of 5

Amigo"s Beach House is simply the best place for anyone visiting Rincon that wants the full experience of relaxing, surfing, snorkeling, fishing, cocktails and great food in one of the coolest places on earth. This beautiful home is owned by a surfer from NJ, and from the minute you arrive, you will feel like it is your own beach house. Only a few yards from the rolling surf, the view at sunset is stunning. You are minutes from all the best places in town, and the locals will treat you like a king once you tell them you are at Amigo's Beach House. Go elsewhere at your own peril!

Best Time at Tres Amigos!

  • 5 of 5

I went with a group of friends to Tres Amigos for my 30th birthday and I could not have asked for anything better! The house was perfect- a great beach house, the type where you felt it was okay to get some sand on the floor. We had a total of 8 people stay. There are beds for 6, but two slept on the pull-out couch. We all had enough room. The house had lots of extr pillows, blankets, and towel. They also have a outside shed that was full of beach umbrellas, coolers, beach chairs, etc. which was so perfect. I have stayed at other homes where you had to rent or provide your own so this was such a nice touch.

The view from the living room is beautiful and you can see the water and hear the waves in the back yard. We spent a lot of time grilling out in the back yard. The beach is a 30 second walk. We spent our days at Steps beach which is a one minute drive with the beach chairs or a quick walk down the beach. There is gorgeous snorkeling- lots of Elkhorn coral, fish, and one of our group was lucky to spot a sea turtle. We also hit up the Calypso beach bar, a five minute walk from the house, for $2 rum punch on their nightly happy hour.

Overall this was a great trip. It is truly a small, sleepy beach town perfect for relaxing. Danny the owner and Delores the house manager were great. Answered all of our texts and phone calls quickly and happily. I would highly recommend staying here and hope to return.

we had a great time at Tres Amigos. Great house, very clean. Had a great time with my kids, my parents and friends. The local Descho Surf Shop is awesome, excellent gear and surf instruction for my kids and me! Also, big thank you to Dolores, house manager for giving our car a jump start so we could make it back to the airport!! Coming back next year.

  • 5 of 5

!st time we ever stayed in Rincon, and I'm glad we stayed here. Close to everything, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore, clean, and the view, wow. Its not right on the ocean but it might as well be. It took us 48 seconds before our toes touched that beautiful water. We loved loved loved it there.

A short walk down a 25 yard path lands you on the best beach in Rincon. Home of Marias surfing beach, beautiful sunsets and the calypso cafe which is a short walk from the house which has live music, frozen drinks and the best happy hour around with really good food! Located in the best area of Rincon, Encinatas, let the waves crashing on the beach lull you to sleep at night! there is nothing like it! Amigos beach house is the favorite of many return guests from near and far.
