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...

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first trip to Puerto Rico. The house is right on the corner and easy to find is gated and new. We found the home to be well furnished and comfortable. The 4 bedrooms worked perfect for our group, very pleased with the beds too. 3 bathrooms allowed all of us to get ready quickly. A short walk to our beach, choice of calm waters or waves further N/W. There are 2 restaurants (Shipwreck) and a dive shop very close by. Villa Cofresci had a good beach, patio bar, GREAT restaurant!

Perfect location, perfect house

  • 4 of 5

This is our second year renting Casa Marina and we love it even more. The house in the perfect location and well maintained considering is close to the beach, I would recommend a few retouches but nothing mayor. Refrigerator may have some issues later in the year. House was super clean, towels are provided (and that is REALLY convenient). Pool is perfect, spacious seating areas, great for large group. We really enjoyed the house as much as possible and went out only 1 night. John is awesome, great communication and very helpful.

I would recommend Casa Marina to anyone, anytime.

Perfect Location, Loved the Pool, Terrace & Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 4 adults and 2 teens felt right at home at Casa Marina. It's located within walking distance (2 minutes) of several restaurants and a nice beach with calm water. The house was clean and we enjoyed the private swimming pool and amazing even sunsets from the terrace. We will definitely be back.

The home was as seen on the web site, close to everything with amazing water views.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time the grounds and terrace are great. You can see the ocean from the terrace. The beach Is about a minute from the home. The pool is perfect after spending the day at the beach. There are a lot of activities to do at the beach for example paddle boarding, diving and snorkeling just to name a few. There is a lot of space in the home the master bedroom is extremely spacious. We had a issue with the air conditioning unit in the master bedroom and it was taken care of right away. The kitchen is well stocked everything you may need is provided. I will definitely be making this home our "vacation home" when we visit Puerto Rico.

Owner's Response: Hi Micky, Thank you again for choosing Casa Marina for your vacation and please come back soon. I really love the location as well... many walking options without the need to use the car all the time is why I chose the Ensenada area for a vacation home. I know there are future plans to also put a bike/jogging path by the beach that people can take directly to the plaza area... can't wait for it. Sincerely, John Bacon

Rincon Puerto Rico Condo Review

Pros:

1. Fairly close to the beach and restaurants.

2. Easy drive into town

3. Spacious

4. No bedrooms downstairs making it very nice for an early riser to get up before everyone else and make breakfast etc.

5. Very nice and responsive leasing agent

6. A lot of beach towels for our use

7. Comfy beds

Cons:

1. Had to run the AC unit on the highest speed in order to drown out the traffic noise

2. Notified leasing agent that the icemaker was not working, he acknowledged it but didn’t send someone to fix it

3. Skimpy on the toilet paper but did bring over extras upon request

4. Gate was difficult to open and close

Owner's Response: Hi Joe, Thank you for the review and comments. I apologize for the ice maker incident.. the plumber had to order a part which took longer than expected to arrive which wasn't helpful but it has been repaired. I know the location (Calle 413) is popular for beachgoers, many of which are staying farther from the beach and have to drive to get there. My experience has always been weekends are usually when it occurs if there is some sort of event occurring at the lighthouse. Thank you again for staying at Casa Marina. Sincerely, John Bacon

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.
