Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Rincón

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths,1 fouton and air mattresses available when needed

WiFi just added to our home and central air conditioning in the entire house! Please note we only rent the entire house with cabana, we do not break it up for rental. See video walkthrough at tresamigosbeachhouse. com. Walk out the back door and you're on the beach! When you step into it, you are enveloped with a sense of tranquility and beauty. You watch awesome sunsets with a glass of wine from the lanai swings. At night you are lulled by the sounds of the coqui tree frogs and ocean waves. In the mornings, the sparkling blue Caribbean catches your breath. In the afternoon you take a nap to the sound of the gently blowing trade winds.

You can walk to the ocean at 7am, stand on the beach and feel the excitement of the surfers taking their first wave, fifty yards away from you. In the evening, you can stroll down to El Faro, Rincon's lighthouse park, stopping on your way for a sundown drink at the Calypso Cafe.

Amigos Beach House sits on a quarter acre of land set back 100 yards from the Caribbean. It lies on the westernmost tip of Puerto Rico in the small town of Rincon, known as the 'Pueblo de los Bellos Atardeceres', the Town of Beautiful Sunsets. Amigos Beach House faces the west and the entire side of the house is a large screened lanai open to the sunsets, the surf, the Caribbean Trade Winds (the 'trades'), and in season, the migrating whales.

The 1100 square foot main living area is on the second floor and is reached by exterior wooden steps curving up from the end of the driveway. The house is canopied by Almond, Mango and Mahogany trees, giving the feeling of being in a treehouse...but with all the connivances of a contemporary home. On the upper main level, there are two bedrooms, two full baths, a fully equipped kitchen, and the open dining room - living area extending from the center of the main cupola out to the lanai (porch).

The cabana is a separate apartment on the ground floor with its own entrance, three steps up from the breezeway. The cabana has a bedroom, a full bath, and a kitchen-living room opening onto the screened lanai, similar to the main floor. The bedroom has AC. The cabana also has Mexican tile accents and wooden beam ceiling with windows on all 4 sides allowing the trades to blow through. Its 400 square feet added to the main floor make 1500 square feet of living space.

The Amigos Beach House is a unique wooden 12 sided dodecagon. The 8' walls rise to a central 16' windowed cupola with a Casa Blanca fan. The cathedral ceiling is natural wooden beams. Because of the open design, the trades blow gently through the house year round, assisted by Casa Blanca fans in each room. The bedrooms have split air conditioning units blended into the architectural integrity. The beige peach ceramic tile floors keep the house cool to the feet. There are Mexican tile accents in the kitchen and baths. The house has Anderson windows less than a year old. The wooden roof is covered with reflective galvalum. There is an air space between the wood and the galvalum layers, adding to the house's coolness. The house has a passive air conditioning system of roof vents with wind-powered suction hoods, and air vents between rooms and around the exterior where the walls meet the ceiling.

The exterior's natural wood camouflages it into the surroundings. Amigos Beach House is not visible from the road, it is about 100 yards away. The asphalt drive from the main road ends in a graveled breezeway under the house. The breezeway leads through to the front yard, and serves as a relaxation area with entrances to the utility shed and the laundry room. At the beach end of the breezeway is the patio table area with a Weber grill and hammock. The front yard has an outdoor beach shower, common in the Caribbean. At the corner edge of the front yard is the beach gate and steps down to the ocean.

The fenced yard is mature and well treed. In addition to the mango, there are banana and coconut palms, lime, avocado, and breadfruit trees. There are Hibiscus, Jasmine, and Bougainvillea bushes, and Ylang-Ylang tree and various flowers like Buddha Lilies and Mira Mirandas (Impatience).

Beach house in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Tres Amigos beach house was just what we were looking for. The home is fully equipped with everything a family would need for an extended stay. There is access to all of the Rincon hotspots while still having privacy. There is a beautiful beach that is less than a 100 yard walk from the house. World-class surfing and snorkeling is within a 3 minute drive. We couldn't have asked for a more hospitable owner in Danny. He was professional, friendly, and very accessible. He also provided us with countless tips on the best spots to visit in Rincon and the surrounding area. We cannot wait to go back!

Truly a piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely one of our favorites. We use HomeAway several times per year and are usually happy with the experience. This property and owner were fantastic. The house was a perfect respite for our family while we adventured the area. We were an hour from breathtaking waterfalls to jump from and minutes from some world class surf breaks. The owners communicated with us ahead of time and when we came in to find a glitch with the water supply they had a crew out there and fixed before we returned from dinner! Very accommodating people. The AC units worked well to give us a cooler climate to sleep in but during the day, the fans and cross winds were perfect. There are board racks downstairs to store boards safely. The front door was a great piece to welcome you. You can tell the owners take great pride in the house and wanted us to feel welcome. The property was clean and well maintained with more modern conveniences than some local hotels.

There are more great places to eat in Rincon than we had time to experience. Many places serve Acai bowls as breakfast that tastes wonderful and provides ample energy to surf or snorkel all morning. There is an art walk on Thursday evenings and the entire town comes out to enjoy music and community.

Fly into San Juan and rent a car and take the scenic trip across the island to find a paradise awaiting.

The owners and the overall customer service will make you feel at home and almost like family.

Thank You So Much!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Tres amigos beach house was perfect for our family , we utilized the upstairs house as well as the small apartment below. There was construction next-door but It didn't bother us, The house had many amenities but my favorite was the view from the living room as well as the private porch off of the master bedroom. Rincon is definitely a laid-back surfer beach town… Lots of water activities to do, when it's raining a little more difficult to find things! You must go into town on Thursday evenings and visit the local artisans craft fair, you will absolutely find something for everybody on your list, The ambience is unparalleled. Again, this house is wonderful I highly recommend it.

Crazy Awesome

  • 5 of 5

okay, so on the one hand i want to rage about how great this place was and on the other keep it all to myself! killer location, wonderful house with great home energy, all the amenities, great service and communication from the hosts, and most of all, a place to hang your flip flops, take an outdoor shower, rack your board, and lay in a hammock- just awesome! not to mention the amazing views of the surf, sounds of the jungle, and margaritas down the road.......

Notes:
A short walk down a 25 yard path lands you on the best beach in Rincon. Home of Marias surfing beach, beautiful sunsets and the calypso cafe which is a short walk from the house which has live music, frozen drinks and the best happy hour around with really good food! Located in the best area of Rincon, Encinatas, let the waves crashing on the beach lull you to sleep at night! there is nothing like it! Amigos beach house is the favorite of many return guests from near and far.
