Casa Hines: A private oceanfront paradise in Rincón, Puerto Rico

As exclusive agent, Binswanger is pleased to present Casa Hines in Rincón, Puerto Rico, for sale via a private sealed bid offering.

Magnificently designed in 1994 by celebrated architect Otto Reyes-Casanova, the estate was originally created for use as a private family retreat and is known locally on the island and throughout the Caribbean as “Casa Hines.” Consisting of 10 spacious bedrooms, the villa totals 14,000 square feet and is situated on three-and-one-half acres. At the heart of Casa Hines sits an exquisite Spanish courtyard that is surrounded by a two-story veranda that leads to each of the bedrooms, dining area, grand entryway, kitchen and whale-watching tower.

The welcoming estate includes a dramatic marble stair entry, veranda-ringed fountain courtyard, grand dining room, private terraces and coral patios overlooking the 65-foot pool, Jacuzzi and beach.

Ten spacious, air-conditioned bedrooms with handcrafted mahogany woodwork, high ceilings, and marble and tile private baths all offer beautiful views from their own private balconies and can accommodate up to 26 guests.

The whimsical tower atop the villa offers spectacular views of the gorgeous blue ocean to the west and emerald green mountains to the east. From December through March, the tower is a prime perch for whale watching, but visitors are drawn to the mesmerizing vistas year round.

Casa Hines is in Rincón, on the Caribbean Sea, just minutes from where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean.

Featured on the Travel Channel’s Puerto Rico Top 10 Countdown, Rincón sits on the island’s most westerly point, framed by blue water, green mountains and golden sand. Rincón has miles of beaches offering everything from peaceful relaxation to surfing or snorkeling at the world-renowned Tres Palmas underwater preserve.

The villa’s beach is on the calm waters of the Caribbean Sea. When the current of the Atlantic and Caribbean collide from October to April, the surfing beaches, which are just minutes away from Casa Hines, become a premier destination for world-class surfers seeking the wave of their life and for professional surfing circuits that often attract the best of the best in the surfing community. The little fishing village with its “spell-binding” tendencies has been captivating vacationers ever since 1968, when it hosted the World Amateur Surfing Championships.

Westerly views of the spectacular Caribbean Sea and its famous sunsets offer a picturesque setting for vacations, weddings, family reunions and executive retreats for up to 500 guests.
