Loved this Little slice of Heaven. Apartment is very clean with everything you need for vacation..full kitchen, two baths and comfortable beds. I could sit on the balcony ALL DAY LONG and enjoy the views and tranquility!!! Easy access to bars and food and the beach is just step away. It was great having onsite private parking. Hope to return many times.

Rented one of the two apartments in this classic building during my first stay in Rincon last January. The location is ideal -- walking distance to bars and restaurants but far enough away to get a quiet night's sleep. Access to Pools Beach from your doorstep, easy parking, and laid-back accommodations. Love this place, hope to return soon!

Sunny Perfect Sunset Beach Spot

Perfect home with such gorgeous beach views & direct access, unique character and in great condition. So many lovely different areas outside to hang out including the perfect balcony where we spend much of our time on when we were at the house. Can't believe this is the only house that has direct access to Pools Beach. Most of the time this beach is fairly empty. The beach has such great sunset views, people come out in droves to see it. Shortboard surfers surf here but we were warned not to longboard surf there. We heard how locals would take their little kids to play in the pools at pools beach but we were also warned by all locals how they don't go in because there are urchins there. Maybe locals take their kids there in the summers because when we were there the current seemed a bit strong over the rocks and coral. Either way we just walked to Sandy Beach 5 minutes down the road so we could surf. On Friday night Pools Bar did play loudly from 10pm to 2am. Once we closed all the windows and turned the A/C on, the sound was muffled enough to be tolerable enough and we were able to sleep. Basically one of the best direct beach access home we've found so far. We're definitely coming back!

My Response

Thank you Angela for your thoughtful review. I think you give our potential guests a great idea of what our apartments are like! Yes, the surf can be dangerous if there is a good swell, but a more mellow wave just down the beach at Sandy...Live music at Pool Bar Sushi once a week during the high season, but usually a very quiet area. Thanks again for taking the time and hope to have you back again soon. Jim

Nice clean basic apartment/mellow beach

The apt is clean and pictures are accurate. It's within close walking distance of bars/restaurants and there is gated parking. One thing to note- Pools Bar is across the street and there was only 1 night where they held a live outdoor concert, so it was noisy that 1 night, but otherwise quiet and peaceful. Pools beach is right out in front, you can take a 5 min walk to Sandy beach on the back roads. The area felt very safe. Apparently the power goes out regularly - but the apt has a generator so you barely noticed. Property managers are very responsive and made sure i was able to check in/check out promptly, also quickly received security deposit back.

Beautiful home on the beach!

I stayed at this Pools beach apartment for almost a week and had the most incredible time. The place and location are amazing - it's basically in the ocean. The balcony looks right out onto the most beautiful view and the private stairs go down to the beach. The whole place is very private, which is something that I particularly liked about the house and location. It is in very great location in terms of walking distance - you can walk to great bars and restaurants. And it goes without saying, surfing is incredible. Definitely recommend!

Love the location of the Whale Watcher, and Pools Beach has got to be one of the most chill spots on earth. As far as the apartment it has all you need. Some updates to the finishes could make it a bit more homie, but your time isn't really spent indoors. Will stay again for sure. Love it

This was my sixth visit to Rincon over a 30yr span. The first being a young surf rat with no money and a big desire to surf all day. After getting to know some people and a wedding or birthday return I had fallen in love with the west coast, Rincon to be exact. Finally I found the ultimate spot to stay. The Whale Watcher, while not exactly finished in marble and granite, will leave you feeling that you have entered a postcard existence. The views are unmatched, the sunsets over Desechaeo will make you stop all activity to first gawk in awe followed by reflection on how lucky you are to alive. Puntas is the right side to stay on, great bars and restaraunts, Casa Islania has world class cuisine ocean front at an incredible value. If you are lucky enough to know about Rincon, Puerto Rico and have the means to stay at the Whale Watcher (did see whales) then jump on it !

Hi Mary Lee,

This is just a note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Pools Beach. The view from the balcony was just amazing we often had trouble leaving our apartment! The location was the perfect mix of being close to the beach, remote, and yet close to many conveniences like good food and restaurants! Thanks for the great hospitality.

We hope to be back soon!


PS here's my fav picture from the balcony because it captures our morning routine:

Mary Lee & Bill,

We truly enjoyed our week in paradise!  The accomodations were great.  Loved the sound of the waves at night and the delightful beach breezes.  Add into that equation the beautiful palm trees and you truly have a paradise hideaway.
