Rincon, The Town Center Plaza and Area: Rincon means 'Corner' or 'Niche' in Spanish and is a perfect description of our location in the northwest corner of Puerto Rico, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea. Rincon remains part of the 'Undiscovered Caribbean' and has been Puerto Rico's favorite vacation destination for years! Its unique location creates some of the best surfing waves in the world when the currents collide from October to April but also has many beaches for those who prefer calm glass like waters for swimming and snorkeling.

Escape the big hotel scene in Rincon where visitors are just another part of life in paradise. You'll enjoy the activity of intimate beaches, spectacular sunsets, the romantic lighthouse. Downtown Rincon has a traditional plaza with bakeries and restaurants as well as local artist works and a microbrew pub.

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 Puerto Rico

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...

Everything about our stay at this property was fantastic. The owner was very responsive to all of our questions and requests. The home was impeccably clean when we arrived and in perfect condition. We loved all of the space that this property had to offer for our large family and having a pool onsite plus a 3rd floor balcony with an ocean view was the icing on the cake. If we ever make it back to Rincon, we would definitely stay here again.

Awesome condo

  • 4 of 5

Overall the condo was clean, well laid out and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and the pool and patio area was great. The roof-top patio was wonderful for morning coffee and evening night-caps. Proximity to restaurants, shopping and the beach was outstanding. The only down side to the home was the road noise, occasional trucks and cars with loud stereos playing made sleeping a challenge at times. Bring your ear plugs and have a great time!

Lovely and restful house in Puerto Rico

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was lovely. The house works well for a large group of people. The bedrooms and baths were very accommodating. Our favorite place was the third floor terrace that was always cool, shaded, and had a nice view of the ocean. The beach is a very short walk from the house. We drove around looking at other beaches and decided ours was the best. The house was very clean--with one exception: the kitchen is in need of a thorough scrubbing. It was passable, but everyone would benefit (owners and renters) if more cleaning attention was directed at the kitchen. When a house is advertised as having a kitchen available for "eating in", it is only fair to expect that it will be spotless. We had a handicapped person with us, so eating every meal out was not an option.

Other than that, we found the house to be a very nice vacation spot-----and we thank the owners for sharing it with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you Nancy for your feedback and I have instructed housekeeping to do a thorough deep cleaning in the kitchen. As always, guests are asked in the instructions to notify me right away if something is less than expected so that I can have it immediately addressed. Thank you again for booking our home and we hope to see you in Rincon again. John Bacon

love the house and the location

  • 4 of 5

It's a wonderful house, big, lots of space. the pool is beautiful. We love sitting on the 3rd floor deck in the morning and having coffee and looking a the ocean. it's in a great location, 3 minutes to the grocery, 3 minutes to lighthouse, 1 minute walk to the beach, there are 4 bars and restaurants, dive center, public marina, water sports, horseback riding, all within a 2 minute walk.

the corner can be a bit noisy, but if you use your air conditioner at night, the sounds are very muffled.

Property owner was near by and immediately brought over a couple of things we needed when we first arrived.

chairs, cooler, beach towels all supplied along with plenty of bath towels, sheets, etc.

will definitely be back.

Amazing house close to everything!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely beautiful! We had a group of five guys all in our mid 20's looking to get away to a tropical paradise and that's what we found. The house was in a perfect location. At the very end of the street there is this cove that you can swim in that is protected by rocks and has a sand bottom. Most of the places around the Rincon area have rock/reef bottoms and arnt good for casual swimming so take advantage of this place. The house is also 1.6 miles away from Maria's surf spot and Domes and at the end of the street where the house sits on is a popular and amazing restaurant called Shipwrecks. You have to visit this place for dinner at least one night and there is another new restaurant that just opened that sits right on the ocean with a killer view and good food as well. The grocery store is very close as well and also several bars and night clubs to experience the night life. We went to this place called Tamboo that was a really good time and was populated with a lot of Americans. I noticed some people complain about the condos that recently were built right next to the houses property but the house is so tall that on the third floor where you have your hang out porch area you can see the ocean and sunset with no problem. They are also building a hotel across the street so there might be some construction going on in the next few months to a year. When we were there they were in the first stages of leveling dirt and clearing out debre but never had an impact on our stay. Anyways If you stay in the house during the day anyways you are missing out on what Rincon has to offer. We traveled to a local waterfall called Gozalandia in San Sebastián that took 45 minutes to drive to but is to die for! The house does not have central AC but every room has an AC unit that works very well.

I could of not been happier with this property and recommend it to anyone interested in staying here. We got lost for a few minutes finding the house but the property manager was able to stay on the phone with me and direct us straight to the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the comments on my vacation home. The adjacent lot which has a sign regarding a hotel has been in place for a couple of years now and it's my understanding that they won't be building anything there for several years as the soils (this might have been why some dirt was moved during your stay) need to settle. Also, they are reconsidering a future hotel at the location and may at some future point opt for condos instead. Again, thank you for your comments on my vacation home and I'm glad you were able to enjoy the entire Rincon area.

Lovely Stay

  • 4 of 5

I travelled to PR with my friends and we had a lovely stay in this house. The only bad thing is that there is no central air (which we knew to expect) but if you open all the windows and doors you are set since every room has ceiling fans. Then again, with the beach so close you can spend your whole day there and just come home for meals.

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.

Other Activities: Surfing,casinos,sailing,wave running,kayaking,horseback riding
