About the property

3 A/C Bedrooms, with private baths and balconies, Oceanfront private patio



There is no finer place to vacation then Rincon, PR. From surfing and snorkeling to hiking and golfing, Rincon offers it all. Along with the multitude of daytime activities, Rincon also has an active nightlife, with many oceanfront bars, and restaurants serving freshly caught seafood. If dining in is your preference, the close proximity of a local fish markets and grocery store (within two miles) allow for you to create your own oceanfront dining experience on your private patio.

Every air-conditioned bedroom has its own private en suite bathroom and private balcony, making this house perfect for couples to have a romantic getaway or for family retreats with the children. Wake to the sunrise over the mountains in the east, and finish the day watching the beautiful sunset melt into the blue Caribbean Sea. While here you will not want to miss a sunset, and almost every room and your own private patio provides a fabulous view.

This private luxury Rincon vacation rental is an elegant and comfortable home directly on the CARIBBEAN SEA! Nothing beats falling asleep to the soothing sound of gentle waves, and in our comfortable beds you will sleep soundly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After years of booking vacation homes online (including some mistakes and bad choices) I have become very adept at judging websites and their representations, photos, and narratives. Pelican Pass was a standout during my search and ultimately proved to be the perfect place for my wife and our 2 friends to spend a long weekend celebrating my 50th birthday. The house matched the online photos and even exceeded the charm, comfort, and ambience that we anticipated before arriving. The process of booking, arriving, and departing was simple and smooth, and the Owner was always responsive to any questions we had. We hope to be back, but this time with our kids......so we can share the experience with them!

Rincon Perfection

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 travelled to Rincon, Puerto Rico for a slightly off-the-beaten-path spring break. We imagined an undiscovered paradise where the beaches were perfect, the food amazing and the people were warm and welcoming to we Gringos. We found it. Rincon is the place you've imagined. It's a real place. It's a community where everyone seems to positively celebrate life even through hardships like hurricanes and governmental mismanagement. And for this week to be just perfect we needed the right home, one that is comfortable, owned by caring people and has magnificent natural beauty views. We found it. Villa 1 at Pelican pass was 'the best deal in town' and offered us great proximity to Rincon, beautiful morning views, crashing waves all night long for perfect sleep - and an owner is Kathy who was available for whatever needed.

The gated home is very safe and private despite being adjacent to villa 2. We never saw the neighbors unless we wanted to peek over the gate. The downstairs living spaces are easy and relaxed. The TV works and we watched some NCAA hoops. The kitchen has all we needed to cook, but we opted to eat in town every night because of the quality of the Rincon food scene. The bedrooms all have great AC and easily cool to chilly if you so desire. The beds and linens and towels are all clean, first rate. The showers are great, plenty of Hot H2O. The decks and patio are the best part. PR has had a severe beach erosion, but it doesn't at all diminish from your chances to see the beautiful water, and there are awesome beaches nearby at Domes and Steps. Go to PR. It's got soul. Stay at Pelican Pass. You will be happy.

The Pelican Villa was perfect for our stay in Puerto Rico. The house is beautifully decorated, clean

  • 5 of 5

The Pelican Villa was perfect for our stay in Puerto Rico. The house is beautifully decorated, clean, the beds were comfy; is amazing and great for the family. We had a fabulous time hanging by the backyard and looking the sunsets. The backyard is breathtaking. Enough pool towels for everyone, fun floats and the TV was amazing. Kitchen was well stocked with supplies. It’s a nice quiet neighborhood. Perfect location; you can drive for fresh groceries everyday. The Villa is close to everything you’d want to do in Rincón.

We will definitely be back!

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This place is very affordable, right on the ocean, and the owners are super friendly! You can hear the ocean crashing against the sea wall at night, very close to Rincon, and easy access to highway 2 which takes you north/northwest to Aguadilla and beyond. Highly recommend this place for a surf getaway or family vacation. Thank you to the Pelican Pass family.
