About this listing

La Casa Paraiso is a modern, airy, open plan, sun drenched, 3 bedroom, ranch style home perched on a 1/4 acre mountain top overlooking a lush valley of bamboo with panoramic Ocean views throughout. Stunning views & sunsets are the norm at La Casa Paraiso!

Nothing else like it in Puerto Rico!

The space

La Casa Paraiso is a modern ranch style home, custom built everything, extremely private, with an open floor plan design to maximize the Ocean views and blur the line between outdoor and indoor living.

La Casa Paraiso was originally built in the 1960's with a long history as one of the original guest homes in Rincon, Puerto Rico. We have spent the last 3 years meticulously designing, remodeling and moulding the house into our dream home to share with you! We personally designed and built by hand everything in the house including the floors, walls, doors, windows, cabinets, sofa, furniture, beds, etc....everything! The materials we used to remodel the house were kept to 3 elements (wood,concrete & metal) to simplify the interior design. We purposefully kept the design minimal and tastefully decorated in natural tones to allow you to focus on the panoramic ocean views and abundant natural beauty of Puerto Rico!

+ We ask that you be respectful of our space, treat it like your own space, and leave it as you found it... please clean up after yourselves (take trash out, wash used dishes, wipe down counters as needed).

+ Please no load music after 8pm, we love our neighbors and want to keep them loving us. They will let you and us know if things are out of control. If the police are called for noise violations, parties, fighting or disorderly conduct you will be asked you to leave and escorted off the property by the local police, friends of ours. We had a more lenient policy on this but unfortunately some guests have been abusing this noise policy.

+ If using the sleeper sofa as a bed please let us know so we can prepare for this. We will provide extra sheets and blankets and store in closets in main rooms. Please use sheets/linens provided. This keeps the sleeper sofa clean and happy for everyone! Please blot spills immediately with a clean absorbent white cloth. If major spill please let us know right away so we can send our team to treat professionally. The cushions were custom made by hand by us with very expensive materials. If the stains are permanent we will need to charge for the damage and replacement.

+ Absolutely no smoking in the house. Feel free to smoke in any of the outdoors areas but please extinguish the cigarettes first in receptacles provided, do not under any circumstances throw over cigaret butts or anything else railing as fires are started quite easily in the dry season.

Most of all, we hope that you enjoy yourself!

I don't have much experience with AirBnB but this is probably one of the best rental property experiences I've had. The house is exactly what you see in the pictures - it's a very well designed house with fantastic views and quick access to the beach via car. Everything was in working order and clean when we arrived. There are tiny details that helped with the stay too, like the fact that there was an outdoor shower by the entrance to wash off the sand from the beach. The house comes with a check in manual that was also really handy and helpful when we had any questions. We used the grill both nights we were there since grilling with that view is so appealing. The rooms were comfortable and showers very good. Shawn is also great host and quickly answered any questions we had. Everything went smoothly and as expected. I liked the place so much I'm looking forward to my next stay there when I get a chance to go back to Rincon.

Shawn allowed me to plan my small wedding celebration at their Airbnb and went above and beyond to help me plan the event over the past several months. I had the wedding of my dreams and an unforgettable experience in the incredibly designed space. I highly recommend this Airbnb as well as the town - the locals are wonderful, helpful, and kind people that also were a huge part of putting the event together. Thank you Venessa & Shawn!!!

Shawn and Venessa have a beautiful home. We enjoyed their style, attention to detail, and how well they have incorporated nature in their aesthetic. We appreciated the quality and cleanliness of this home. The crisp white sheets are a high thread count :) and the towels are fluffy ...details they could have tried to skirt. We appreciated cooking in cast iron, and not flimsy tin. High end appliances, custom fans, and adjustable lighting !! It is evident that quality is important to them, the luxury truly compliments the scenery. We entertained friends and family with ease. While the house is very family friendly, caution should be taken on the balcony with small children. The open concept is incredible. The simplicity of design is tasteful and evokes the peace and relaxation you want from a vacation... We loved how secluded and private the property felt! The showers looking out over the ocean are a treat! The grill and patio area are perfect for meal prep and hang time. So many great features to this house. You will not be disappointed! Karin

This is such a unique and beautiful place! The details put into this home are fantastic, and the views to the outside garden and forest are wonderful! And it's very close to downtown Rincon and its beaches... :D Everything was well set-up for us, and amenities were easy to find. As well, Venessa & Shawn were very communicative and helpful!

We just stayed at Venessa and Shawn's home this past weekend. This house is beautiful!! The view is beautiful! The location of the house is perfect as it is near beaches and restaurants. The house is CLEAN and absolutely beautiful. The owners made all the furniture and it shows because the quality is amazing and nothing like you will find anywhere else. The view is awesome! The house is airy and light and so comfortable. The details of the house is amazingly thought out and so creative. The owners were extremely easy to contact and it was like I was staying at a house of one of our friends. We actually stayed in the house all day on Saturday just because it was so comfortable. This house is one you don't want to leave and you will be talking about how beautiful the house is to everyone who asks. We will be back! Thank you Venessa and Shawn for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Venessa & Shawn User ProfileVenessa & Shawn is a superhost.

Hello friends, we are Venessa & Shawn!

We are two designers/photographers/builders who are passionate about design, photography, creating and making objects, clothing, furniture and jewelry among other interests.

We love travelling and meeting new people, and it has been delightful hosting guests from all over the world through AirBnB. We are friendly, respectful and polite, and make great guests ourselves.

Venessa is a Jewelry and Accessories Designer for her name sake company Venessa Arizaga. Shawn is a Photographer/ Creative for his name sake company Shawn Roche Photo. We work in tandem on both of these pursuits.

We fell in love with the tropical paradise, Puerto Rico, and we purchased our dream home in Rincon, Puerto Rico in 2013 and spent 3 years plus remodeling, designing & constructing by hand every inch of our home including all of the furniture, tables , chairs, counter tops, floors, doors, windows ( everything!) to ensure that every moment spent in our home is as peaceful, comfortable healthy, and re energizing as possible. Puerto Rico is an incredibly inspiring and health giving landscape and we opened our home completely and stripped away any uneccary element to better embrace and draw in the beauty of our surroundings and have completely blurred the lines of outside and indoor living.

We absolutely love a simple, clean, well curated home with good vibes and we strive to provide the same to you with our dream Villa, La Casa Paraiso !
