About the property

Intimate Cottage for a Couple or Small Family

The Lemon House is a charming cottage on a 4-acre marine reserve beachfront estate. This one bedroom, one bathroom cottage accommodates 2-4 people comfortably on a 1Q Size Bed and 1 Sofa Bed. The unit is fully equipped with A/C, ceiling fans, plasma-Satellite Dish TV with Premium Channels, a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, WiFi, access to swimming pool and laundry facilities. The beach right in front of the estate is the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve, people love to snorkel and surf there. However, depending on weather, at times, the currents and tide may not make it suitable for swimming. A few steps (3 minutes walking distance) away is the popular Steps Beach which is more popular for swimming. Maria’s and Domes Beach (famous surfing beaches) will require a longer walk 20-30 minutes. People with children choose the Ensenada Beach, at the left of the property, which is more friendly for swimming. You will enjoy quiet walks on the beach, snorkeling, swimming and the most amazing sunsets in Puerto Rico. If you need more space, please check VRBO #492812, #496362, #514395, #737542, #791114.

About Sandra Rodriguez

I have been living on Puerto Rico since 1973. I enjoy this wonderful piece of paradise and I fell in love with it the moment I set foot on this island. It has been an endless love affair. We purchased the estate and have developed it through the years thus becoming the actual Tres Palmas Inn and Villas. I live 1 minute away from the property, so I am personally involved in many aspects of its management, though I have a great staff that looks after the property and the guests.

Why Sandra Rodriguez chose Puerto Rico

The beauty of the sunsets and the size of the property (4 acres) inspired me to develop a place where there are ample green spaces, ocean, fabulous views and at the same time would allow privacy to the guests staying in our 6 rental units.

What makes this cottage unique

Over 4 acres of green open spaces with fabulous ocean views. Quiet, private, great staff and the most amazing sunsets in the world. Can't help being partial!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 small kids were looking for a place that was close to the beach, had a pool, close to tourist attractions, and was a good deal for the price. The Lemon House IS that place. It is phenomenal. The Lemon House had everything that we needed. It was clean, comfortable, and stylishly decorated. The AC in the bedroom was nice and cold. The fans in the house kept the rest of the rooms cool. The TV kept my kids happy in the early mornings. I'm sure that if we needed anything else, all we would have had to do was ask. The shared pool seemed, dare I say, even better than the private pool at the house right on the beach. The grounds of Tres Palmas Inn and Villa are supremely well maintained and stunningly pretty. The staff that works at Tres Palmas Inn and Villa are very friendly and helpful (thanks for the fresh picked mangoes!). Tres Palmas Marine reserve is literally a few hundred feet away and is beautiful. The famous Steps Beach is right there. If you want a beach without a reef, the beach by the marina is a short walk on the beach south. We probably visited about 8 different beaches. World class surf breaks are close - some are within walking distance, some are a short drive away. Supermarkets are close by. Restaurants/bars are close by. Shops are close by. In short, this place is amazing and I can't wait to stay there again.

Great Location. A/C Not So Great

  • 3 of 5

The Tres Palmas Villas are in a great location right next to a beautiful and peaceful surfing/snorkeling beach. Rincon is a laid back surf town with plenty of good restaurants, food shacks, and a farmer's market. You have to go to Pool Bar Sushi (wear your swimsuit if you want to take a dip after your dinner).

We stayed in the Lemon House which has plenty of room for 2 people, but the a/c unit in the bedroom was not able to cool off the entire cottage. This makes for a cold bedroom and a warm living room/kitchen (at least in early June).

One of the other units has a private swimming pool about 30 feet from the bedroom window of the Lemon House, so you'll need well-mannered and courteous neighbors in order to enjoy some peace and quiet.

If you are looking for a swimming/bathing beach, you'll have to drive to one. There are plenty within a 30 minute drive of Rincon.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your honest comments. It is important to get your feedback so we can continue to improve our services. I am forwarding your comments to management to make them aware of such challenges. In terms of a beach, we make all of our guests aware that we are right in front of a Marine Reserve which is suitable for snorkeling and surfing, but there are two other beaches within walking distance; Steps Beach and the Beach by the Marina. But thanks again for your feedback. We have just installed a brand new Inverter A/C in the living room!!!! Cordially, Sandra

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfect!! I had my wedding party stay a weekend in this cottage and then I had my honeymoon stay. It was clean, stylish and cozy. It had everything in it that I do at home. Spacious kitchen, fancy pull out couches, spacious bathroom fully stocked appliances in the kitchen such as pots, pans, glasses, eating utensils and much more. The AC in this cottage rocks, I had to sleep with 2 comforters which is great because it keeps the whole house cool. It even has its own little grilling area with lawn chairs to do a cook out. You can easily fit 4 ppl without feeling crammed. Best of all they have cable TV which was a life savor since I didn't miss my shows while on vacation. I can go on forever! But seriously, if you are looking for a budget friendly, beautiful and clean place to stay, look no further! Trust me, you won't regret staying in this cottage.
