A beach and surf lover's paradise, this secluded beach and oceanfront property with pool, bordered by a tropical riverbed, surrounded by lush tropical gardens, and on the sand, is located right in front of, and is the closest house to the famous 'Burros' Surf break. Casa Rincon is situated within the lovely Punta del Burro beach community which is one of the oldest beachfront developments in the Punta de Mita and Bay of Banderas giving it the charm for which it is renown and making it a highly desireable location, coveted for it's privacy and safety. Not adjacent to any town or village and with gated 24/7 security Punta Del Burro is far, far away from any of the problems associated with other distant areas of Mexico today. No house on this beach gets closer to the famous surf point than Casa Rincon. Hidden away in the unusual privacy, tranquility and quiet of our magical spot, expect to luxuriate and restore yourself while watching the surf, the sunrise, the sunset from the many patios, the Grand Palapa, the long front row seat of our rustic stone sea wall patio, from a hammock or from our broad white beach in front. Ideal for extended family reunions, providing multiple gathering places as well as many individual patios for private day dreaming.

Casa Rincon is also home to the infamous Glass Cube recording studio where several renown bands have recorded albums. You may inquire about renting the studio and for Studio manager contact info. Available only to guests of Casa Rincon. 

Casa Rincon consists of the main house, (Casa Rincon), the 'round' house,(Casa Rinconcito), Casa Surf and two other casitas,(Casa Luna and Casa Sol). Casa Rincon and Casa Rinconcito each have full gourmet kitchens with stone and marlble countertops. All rooms have kitchenettes and private patios and balconies. It is fully wheelchair/handicap friendly all the way to the beach! It is filled with beautiful tropical hardwoods, stone arches, boveda entry, red tile and palapa roofing, two beehive fireplaces, antiques, folk art, fine pottery, luxurious linens and more. Get lost strolling along the secret walkways and patios through expansive tropical vegetation, with always the ocean and beach in sight

An emerald swimming pool fills the courtyard between the kitchen of Casa Rincon and the broad brick walkways leading past Casa Rinconcito on to the Grand Palapa and beach. The Grand Palapa is perfect for lounging in a hammock or dining with it's built in stone and brick table, cushioned equipali leather chairs and elegant hand crafted travertine buffet serving counter and carved marble sink. Lounge in a hammock or chaise amidst coconut palms shading the expansive beachfront stone patios with front row views of the bay, the surf, the point, and the winter sun setting right behind the Marieta Islands. Watch mother and baby whales leap into the air from your chair or hammock!

This property,our bordering riverbed and back property are lush with rare plants, haliconias, orchids, tropical fruit orchards and tropical bird song; truly a paradise for bird lovers with over 18 species . Books on the local flora, fauna and birdlife are in our library. 

Punta del Burro is located 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta and 7 miles south of Punta de Mita enjoying spectacular views of the whole bay with a beautiful beach free of crowds and vendors.

Maid Service: We have a live-in, on site caretaker/gardener/cook, Luis, and full time maid service. Special arrangements can be made with the owner or our house manager, Pablo Perez, to hire our help or others as cooks. Everyone loves their cooking!

More detailed information about the house, tipping policies, car rental, airport arrival and the area will be emailed to you after your first rental information contact... and certainly before booking!

SURF INFO: The main break at Burros is a fast right with a short left. Waves are usually chest high and can easily reach overhead in summer and winter. As access to this beach is not easy this break is the least crowded in the area. 

The main peak at the point travels all the way to the front of the house where there is almost always a safe gentle surf for beginners, boogie boarders, body surfers and swimmers while farther out always a good size wave for anyone. Other surf spots nearby: Destiladeras, Punta de Mita, Sayulita, El Coral, Los Veneros, La Lancha,El Faro.

Surfboards , SUP, and kayaks are available to rent onsite for a nominal fee. Great local businesses to rent from as well and will provide lessons

Although most people think of visiting during the cooler Winter and Spring months, Casa Rincon is also very beautiful and special during the hotter, wetter Summer months which happen to be our favorite time. The pool provides ideal refreshment, (as well as over 30 fans on the entire property, and air conditioning which we never even use), and all the lush trees provide plenty of shade. What we love more than anything are the exciting lightning and thunder showers, fireflies, fantastic surf, and the vibrant colors of the rainy season. The rains come and go quickly, bringing spectacular sunsets and sunrises, plenty of time in the sun and surf and leaving everything fresh and beautiful. Of course, the Spring and Winter are devine.

This property is located near Burros. Punta Burros is an excellent right point/reef break. It has enough power so that short boarders can rip it, yet is forgiving enough to be tons of fun on a long board too. A classic Punta Mita surf spot.

This property is also located near Swimming Pools. A Challenging right hander that gets world class at low tide. It can throw barrels over a rocky reef bottom. Also some urchins so booties recommended. Best on a West / North West swell with some size.

This property is also located near La Lancha. A great break along one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. This is a classic right reef break with a consistent peak followed by a long wall. Somewhat isolated location and distance from the main road help control the crowds.

This property is also located near El Anclote. El Anclote is a wave that can best be described as fun! It needs a decent S to SW swell for the break to get going, but when it does it offers up incredibly long gentle rides. The wave is not particularly fast and is ideal for beginners when it is small, yet intermediate and advanced surfers will have a lot of fun when it reaches the 5 to 6 ft range (it seldom gets any bigger than that). El Anclote is a point break that reels over a rounded rock reef (deep enough to not pose a threat at all) creating a ride that can be long, very long, easily reaching the 500 meters on a good day and if riding it all the way to the shore right by the second jetty. Think of it as Puerto Vallarta's version of Malibu but less crowded. Plenty of Cantinas on the beach to relax and have some food and drink after your surf. You can also catch boats from here to take you to the more remote spots around Punta Mita.
