This is tucked away and simply amazing! You are ocean front with a private beach. What could be better? It's super quiet and private.
It's managed by a great guy named eliar who is super helpful.
It was clean with two separate full baths and had a/c which you don't need with the amazing ocean breezes. Since there are only two units in the building there is virtually NO noise and not many people to see. In fact we didn't see the other residents at all! We were in surf watcher unit. (First level)
There is a nifty outdoor shower and two cozy hammocks to lounge in. You are right across from pools bar and sushi and also rincon taco. And just down the street (walking) from bar tambu for a little nightlife. I def recommend this place.
It has wifi although I could never connect to the network. I know if I told eliar about it he would have corrected- but gave me a chance to unplug and disconnect. It was just the place to reconnect with nature and the sea.
Ps- a great whale watching balcony too. We saw 3 spouts our first morning and much whale activity they whole trip!

“The Perfect Beach Rental”
Reviewed 19 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Apartment at Pools Beach is a gem, comfortable and convenient and best of all right on the beach. I have stayed in both units, the upper one this year and they are both wonderful and met all of our needs. The view is spectacular and the access to the quiet and beautiful Pools Beach can't be beat.

The apartments have the basics for your stay making it easy to move right in for a week and with a few groceries, feel right at home. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean and perfect for showering off after a day at the beach. The cable tv has a basic selection and is available if you get bored in the evenings and the wireless worked most of the time we were there. The apartment building is well built and because of that and the sound of the surf, we rarely heard the neighbors in the downstairs unit.

Don't bother packing a lot of clothes because you'll spend most of the time in your swim suit.

“The best rental in Rincon”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I came here for a surf vacation with several friends. We rented both apartments and had a wonderful time taking over the whole building. The view of the Pools surf break is unsurpassed. The location is perfect - a short walk to everything on Sandy Beach, and a beautiful hike to Domes, Maria's, and Tres Palmas (only a few minutes away by car). The actual apartments are fine - clean, comfortable, and equipped to cook. But really, it's all about that view!

“Very nice location, beautiful view”
Reviewed 8 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This apartment has a beautiful view of Pool's Beach, and great sunsets. Conveniently located near a public beach, which is better for swimming, but you can swim at Pool's Beach, too. It's a pretty remote area -- a bit hard to get to -- but there are some great restaurants nearby. The apartment was pretty basic, but as advertised. Clean and comfortable.

“Fantastic spot for relaxation at Pools Beach Apartments, Rincón”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed at the Whale Watcher apartment (upstairs unit, one of two units in the property) during Memorial Day weekend and we couldn't be more pleased. The location allows for walking distance to good places to eat, while still allowing for plenty of privacy. The apartment was very roomy, and while the bedroom wasn't huge, it was adequate. We spent most of our time either at nearby Steps beach, at Pools beach on site, or just lounging in the balcony, enjoying the view of the ocean, which was the property sits right on. We loved being able to cook our own breakfasts and snacks in the kitchen, and there's a nice big supermarket (Econo), a short drive to town. Pools Beach is nice and secluded - there weren't more than 4 or 5 visitors at any given time even though it was a holiday weekend. The first evening was a bit noisy from music across the street, but we were so tired that we slept right through it. The following evenings were dead quiet. There surf at the beach was virtually non-existent during our stay, which seemed kind of unusual, but it did allow for some snorkeling (on this subject, while it is very convenient to snorkel at Pools Beach, Steps beach is the place to go in Rincón. If you do opt to snorkel at Pools Beach, you probably want to bring fins or shoes as there is a minefield of sea urchins). Although we initially selected the apartment because of its pet-friendly policy, we ended up not bringing our pooch, but we feel it would've been perfect for dog lovers due to the nice pools at the beach during low tide. We look forward to coming back!
