Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Puerto Rico - 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.

Casa Ensenada Rincón

  • 3 of 5

The house is a good home for large families. The outside of the house and pool are beautiful. But the appliances and inside home furnishings could use replacements right about now. The AC units leak water so the water run down the walls. In addition, there was a plumbing issue in the laundry room. Moreover, one afternoon it rained so much that the water came in from the rooftop door. The Housekeeper Jonai is awesome if you need to call her. Finally, I thought the decor was too dull and dark for such a beautiful home like this one. It definitely needs some sprucing up on the inside. I would also recommend putting more TV units as there are only two TVs throughout the entire house. It seems the video and photos taken of the house were done a few years back as the inside of the house looks a lot duller and faded.

There are many good restaurants near by within a few minutes drive. The beach area near there is not the best I would say, but good for bathing (water is the calmest). Sandy Beach is a good 10 min drive and this beach is a lot cleaner to bathe in during off surfing season.

I would not recommend this house if you plan to have a family reunion as the layout of the home is not the most convenient.

Overall we had a nice and relaxing time with our families.

Owner's Response: Can't please everyone all the time and I myself stay in many vacation rentals... the home was custom built and in the last several months many new things have been added. I'm sorry you didn't like the colors and tropical curtains. A new refrigerator, washer/dryer, some change outs on new furniture. As always if a guest needs something we have multiple numbers (including local property management) and our air-conditioners are well maintained and if something was to happen with one we call the local service company right away. The layout works well for most families and definitely for couples.... I had the house custom built thinking my parents would enjoy their downstairs suite but if you have small children and are looking for a house where everyone sleeps on the same level I don't think this is the right house for you. I purposely had an architect draw up the entire floor plan last year due to questions about the layout of the house and I've posted it under the "amenities tab" links at the bottom of the page. If there is ever an issue (as I would expect) we are here to help and as stated above you can call the property manager or one of us and we will do everything humanly possible to get it corrected ASAP.

Nice place, and awesome pool!

  • 4 of 5

The house and yard really do look like the photos, which was a pleasant surprise. Yard and pool very well maintained. We were very happy to find out the pool was deep enough to dive, cannonball and tread water in. The kids had a blast! We had to call Jonai twice and she was very responsive and helpful. The one thing that I didn't see any other reviews, which would have been helpful before the first grocery shopping trip regards garbage bags and dishwasher pods. These aren't provided. You need to pick up your own. The Econo Supermarket does have the dishwasher pods, just hard to find. We expected to have to get paper towels, toilet paper, soap, etc - the garbage bags threw us for a loop. Other than that, this place is really nice, short drive to beach and stores. It is a bit of a challenge to find in the dark, even with a GPS unit, but we made it! One other thing, the instructions sent to unlock the front door are slightly incorrect. We struggled for a bit, in the dark, with 3 cranky kids, but finally got it. Once you punch in the code, the lock turns Clockwise, NOT counter clockwise, to unlock from the outside, and it pulls out towards you.

Awesome Rincon vacation in a Beautiful Villa-style house!

  • 5 of 5

The house sits within its own gated compound with plenty of privacy and a beautiful wrap-around balcony overlooking the courtyard. The tropical landscaping, saltwater pool, gazebos and grill make you feel as if this is your own private retreat. The large upstairs kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances and cookware, and having a washer-dryer was a definite plus as we stayed a full seven days. The location is very close to several beaches and activities of which we took great advantage. There is amazing seafood served at local restaurants nearby, and we paddle-boarded and snorkeled within five minutes of the property. Horse back riding on the beach was a first-time experience, but not to be missed with the incredible sunsets this place puts on every evening!

There were a few minor issues to be addressed, but the management was a phone call away, even at late evening hours. Everything we needed was taken care of in a professional and timely manner.

I want to keep this to myself, but I am definitely coming back to this little paradise. You should come and visit!

Casa Ensenada is a perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at Casa Ensenada. We enjoyed it so much last March we returned this year. The house has everything, including a private pool, and a great location, near beaches, shopping, restaurants. The owners are extremely responsive and keep the house in great condition. We'd certainly go back again and again.
