Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Rincón - Casa Ensenada Rincon, PR

Private Villa Home with Pool, 3 Large Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths Walk to Beach

I custom built my vacation home with lots of outdoor areas to enjoy family and friends who want their own oasis and easy walks to town, beach and restaurants. The private pool, lush tropical landscaping and covered balconies are a favorite for most guests. The private outdoor shower is a must have for those wanting to go natural outdoors in private while showering... people continue to say they just love that experience.

Located within walking distance of beaches, bars, restaurants, a dive shop and sunset or snorkeling cruises, you are sure to find something for everyone in this centrally located private villa home. A short 3 minute drive will take you to the local grocery store that is well stocked with everything you would need while on vacation and if you head towards Sandy Beach from the house you are just minutes from the romantic Rincon Puerto Rico Light house. For more information and to see the complete layout of the home including photos, beds, furnishings and grounds look under the Amenities Tab page and select the home layout link at the bottom of the page.

-Upper Floor: (Sleeps 2 to 4) Large master bedroom with balcony, master bathroom with double sinks and walk-in closet, additional full bath, large dining area & living room , and French Doors that lead to a covered balcony with seating.

About John Bacon

I’m an avid traveler who stumbled upon Rincon Puerto Rico nearly 20 years ago and 10 several years ago decided to bite the bullet and build this home for myself and later decided to let others to enjoy it as much as I do. I live and work in Oregon and having been raised near rivers, the ocean, mountains and an abundance of nature came to appreciate what I consider the best kept location in Puerto Rico, Rincon! It’s geographically located on the very western tip of Puerto Rico with an amazing mix of locals and people from the States and even a scattering of people from Europe. I enjoy the long stretches of beaches that are not lined with big hotels but instead allow for a truly relaxing time with little restaurants, shops, bars and of course vacation homes. Snorkeling with the friendly wildlife (fish, manatees and turtles) is always a special treat that always brings a smile.

Why John Bacon chose Puerto Rico

Perfectly located with easy 5 minute or less walks to the beach, town and restaurants, horseback riding, water rentals, diving, snorkeling and a short 2 minute drive to the romantic Rincon Light House and many other things such as street artists in Rincon Puerto Rico.

What makes this house unique

What I enjoy most is the location of the home as it allows people to easily walk around much of Rincon without the need to hike uphill or be tied to using a car. The private pool, lush tropical landscaping and covered balconies are a favorite for most guests. The private outdoor shower is a must have for those wanting to go natural outdoors in private while showering... people continue to say they just love that experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Changes were made due to this double booking. A new system implemented for short time did not worked as expected with two points of reservations. One failed to communicate to the other point of reservation, causing an unacceptable review. From now-on all reservations will be directly with the owner and outsource department has been terminated. As mentioned by the prospects, DCrenters, I tried everything to find them a place to stay, but I was not successful and returned they full rent on the spot, immediately per there requested without any delay. I am very sorry this had caused the DCrenters the inconvenience of time wasted during their vacation looking for another place to stay. This was the first time since the house was build and I ensure any one this will never happen again. Sincere, J.Velez-Owner.

A Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home. This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. The biggest decision was "Do we go to the beach, or sit by the pool?" We usually did both. The home was fully equipped with everything we needed. Just needed to make a stop at the local store for groceries. Weather was ideal, sunsets were beautiful. Make sure to go for a "Happy Burger"....just down the road a bit. We did take a side trip to Ponce...a couple of hours away. Beautiful countryside. We will come again.

This is a great property. The property looks just like the pictures. Well maintained and plenty of room (we were a party of 7) There is a beach close enough that you can walk to it and two more that are just a few minutes drive. You can also walk to town. The pool is outstanding. Would definately stay here again.

Outstanding👍🏻👍🏻

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this home twice and can honestly say it is the best vacation home I have ever rented. John is excellent in communicating and answering any concerns. The home is well equipped and has all that is needed to make anyone feel at home. I will definitely make this my home away from home as long as I visit my hometown.

Thank you John for everything. By the way, I was able to celebrate my wedding reception there and can say that it was awesome. I am hoping to post photos.

Perfect for our family

  • 4 of 5

This house is very pretty and clean. It was perfect for our family of 9. Great location to alot of attractions. Renters, be aware that there is construction right next door to the house and the workers started as early as 6:30 am. This was annoying as we could not sleep in if we wanted too. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the review and the contractor was told that no loud construction work should be happening while guests are staying at the home. I have already forwarded your review to the contractor and this should have never had happened as the contractor is building the home for us and promised me they would not interrupt any guest stays and has in the past stopped work or scaled it back to things that wouldn’t disturb guests staying at the house. I appreciate you bringing this to our attention and we will have it addressed immediately.

Nice property - loved the salt water pool

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Puerto Rico. The property was nice and met our needs. The furniture was functional but not super luxurious and will probably need some updates soon. The only other negative was the bugs that shed their wings we found in the master bathroom and in the pool. Not a big enough deal to call maintenance but a small annoyance. We really enjoyed using the salt water pool which was very nice and private. We would definitely stay there again.
