Casa Kahuna is a luxurious modern home set back in a private neighborhood of Puntas in Rincon. It is conveniently located off Rincon's Route 413 "Road to Happiness" and has unobstructed views through the valley to the Caribbean Sea. This property was formerly owned by Kahuna and his wife Mama Kahuna. Back in the sixties, when the pioneers of surfing began to visit the island, Kahuna provided the first guesthouse on the west coast. It is just minutes from World Class Surfing Breaks, Magnificent Beaches, Amazing Restaurants, and Spectacular Snorkeling, with one of the worlds largest forest of Elk Horn coral, and yet it is secluded enough to provide peace and tranquility. The house was designed by cutting-edge New York architects, Big Prototype, with wall to wall glass windows, expansive terraces and louver window ventilation, which allows the North East Tradewinds to keep the house cool and comfortable throughout the year. Air conditioning is provided in all the bedrooms. Relax in the private pool while taking in the view of the Caribbean ocean. Get a workout in, in the privacy of your own house. Casa Kahuna boasts it's very own Crossfit gym with a rowing machine, pull up bar, olympic bar with weights, kettle bells, wall balls, plyo boxes, jump ropes etc. The house has a back up generator and 700 gallon water cisterns in the event there is a disruption of service. Many other features include Sonos speakers throughout the house, recycled glass slabs, as wall panels, which glow in sunlight, murals and decorative concrete blocks that create scales of textures to create a tropical experience. You may never want to leave the property!!

We stayed here in August of 2018....I meant to leave a review sooner than this! We had a wonderful, exceptional time in this beautiful home. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished, perfectly located. The location is close to beaches and restaurants, but private and set apart and private. The house was light and airy and sleek without being stark, and tastefully appointed with modern, high quality furnishings. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could need, and the appliances were beautiful and high quality. The pool and surrounding patios were gorgeous and spotlessly clean and comfortably furnished, and the surrounding property was pleasantly landscaped. The beds were all very comfortable. The bed linens and towels were all high quality, and the bathrooms were well stocked. The second floor porches off of the kitchen and living areas were beautiful and again, beautifully appointed with tasteful and high quality furnishings. We were a party of 8 - 6 adults and 2 toddlers. We were all very comfortable and there was plenty of space for all of us. One of the first floor bedrooms is a studio of sorts, with a kitchenette and bathroom, opening onto the patio. The other 2 first floor bedrooms shared a bathroom. The master suite was on the second floor, with its own bathroom, a large walk-in closet, and doors opening onto the second floor patio. There was a first floor living room and laundry room and the second floor contained the beautiful kitchen and another living area and patios. There was a nice, large grill. Plenty of parking for our 4 vehicles. I'm sure there is more I am forgetting to mention. Our entire experience was wonderful. Both the owners and Allison, the property manager, were very nice and very helpful. Our flight home was delayed for 2 days due to inclement weather back in NY, and the owners extended our stay and gave us a discounted rate for our extra nights. Rincon is so awesome... gorgeous beaches, local restaurants, yoga studios, surfing lessons, shops...sandy, sunny, and beautiful, with a down-to-earth vibe. We highly recommend this beautiful home and cool surf town, and hope to return one day soon!
I knew this house was going to be nice, but it was SO much more than that! It was AMAZING! The pictures just do not do it justice. Everything about it exceeded our expectations. The house is well laid out & tastefully decorated. The bedrooms and bathrooms have everything you need. The decks and (salt water) pool are great places to just relax (the view is amazing). It was the perfect getaway for my family of six. We honestly did not want to leave! Rochelle & Allison were so helpful and gave great tips on things to do/places to eat...and that guest guide book is genius! I would definitely stay here again and again! If you are looking at places to stay in Rincon-- look no further!
We loved the house and location! We brought our family here for their first trip and the house made our family feel at home. We will be back!
Paradise in Rincon - Simply Amazing! This property is perfect for groups of couples.
This house is absolutely amazing. We were a group of two couples who visited Feb 16th-21st. Rincon has recovered nicely since Maria and is as great as ever. Casa Kahuna was better than advertised, the pictures do not do the house justice. Allison and the owner Larry were available for any and all questions. The house is perfectly located central to everything. It has everything you need and is simply beautiful with a view of the ocean. We are already planning our trip for next year. If you are planning a visit to Rincon, this house should be at the top of your list.
Hi Brian-we are so happy you enjoyed your stay. We feel the same way about our house. Just let us know when you are planning to come back to Paradise-your are always welcome :)
This home is simply AMAZING!
Where do I even begin? This home is simply amazing and the owners have truly thought of EVERYTHING. From quality bedding, kitchenware, furniture, beach and pool chairs, workout equipment, fast wifi, laundry facilities...you name it, the house has everything you need and more. Everything looks brand new, and I love the modern atmosphere and newness of the home.
My boyfriend and I stayed downstairs in the studio during our stay and it was a perfect little hideaway. We had our own entrance, mini fridge and the big sliding doors gave us a nice breeze. All of the bedrooms have air-conditioning too, which is a great option.
While I love being a beach bum, the pool was perfect at the end the day. Jump in with a glass of wine and enjoy that view! The ocean view was another favorite, especially from the top balcony.
Last, the location of the home is great! It's on a quiet street (only a few homes on the dead end street), but still close to the highway, Rincon Plaza, beaches and loads of restaurants. You can still walk to a few places, but you do want a car when you rent this house.
If you are looking for an incredible home for your vacation, this is it. We will be back!
Hi Heather and Micheal:it was a pleasure to have you stay in our home. We appreciate your love and respect you showed our house. We would love to have you back again. See you soon:Thank you-Rochelle
From start to finish, a getaway with my girls to Rincon for my bachelorette party was unforgettable! Rochelle was beyond accommodating- she ensured the house was equipped with everything we might need- from coolers, to glassware, to champagne! She even suggested a local masseuse she knew and trusted to come out to the house. The house was beautiful and absolutely immaculate! You could really tell Rochelle and her family took much pride in their home away from home. The house is close to local favorites for dining and a convenient 3 minute drive to the beach. The views were spectacular from every angle; relaxing by the pool and gazing out on the ocean and islands in the distance was dreamy. The house comfortably slept 8 and had room for more guests if desired. Washer and dryer in full working order made the transition from vacay to home a little easier too! Looking forward to returning to Rincon in the future with my soon to be hubby. Thank you Rochelle for your generosity and beautiful accommodations.
Hi Gwen:We are so happy you and your girls had a great time. We hope you will make this an annual event with your partners!!!! It was a pleasure to have you. Thanks Rochelle
Be sure to visit the Art Walk on Thursday nights in the Rincon Plaza (local artits, restaurants, Rincon Brewery) and back again on Sunday morning for the Farmers Market (organic local vegetables, fruits, honey, etc). The Rincon Light House has some amazing views and beautiful sunsets. If you have time to explore, take a trip to the beautiful cliffs of Cabo Rojo, light house. They are spectacular!!! Feel a little adventerous, visit San Sebastian, waterfalls. Here you will be able to jump off cliffs of waterfalls or simply do the rope swing.
