Rincon, a small town on Puerto Rico's unspoiled West Coast, is known for its several miles of sandy Caribbean beaches, the best big wave surfing anywhere in the Atlantic, terrific fishing, boating, swimming, snorkeling, off-shore scuba diving, whale watching and much more.

The area hosts many fine restaurants. El Faro, Rincon's lighthouse offers stunning views of the ocean and is one of two passive whale watching parks in the world. The surrounding area offers interesting side trips like coffee plantations, spectacular mountain driving, mini rain forests, the Rio Camuy Cave Park, Cabo Rojo's salt flats, Arecibo Observatory's massive radio telescope and the biologically wondrous Phosphorescent Bay. Golfing is available 25 minutes north in Aguadilla and casino gambling is 25 minutes south in Mayaguez.

I met my wife Grisselle in San Juan in 1996. We got to explore much of the island during my visits to see her over the next several years.

After we married (at the Carib Hilton!) we moved to New York and continued our stressful careers. My wife would go visit her mother who still lived in San Juan about twice year. Each time she came home to New York, she would share pictures and stories of the quaint towns on the west coast of Puerto Rico. When we finally were able to coordinate a trip together and chose Rincon.... Well that was a life changer!!!, we kept going back. Rincon has all the elements of paradise we look for in the Caribbean. Surfing Beaches,Swimming beaches. lush mountains and NO COMMERCIAL fast food ugly signs all over the place. The Rincon community is ecofriendly ,kind and has many of the outdoor activities we love to do so much. I am an avid yoga practitioner and my wife is a personal trainer. I took my first surfing lesson at age 45 and I am hooked. After several visits to different areas within Rincon we decided to find our dream property.

Steven Mucciolo or Grisselle Rivera Mucciolo purchased this villa in 2013

My wife and I searched literally high and low in the city of Rincon.

each sector or 'Barrio' had attractive elements but Bo. Puntas for us had it all. This property was ironically the first one we were interested in but we could not find the owner. We liked its privacy and spectacular views of the Atlantic and Caribbean waters.

We also like being able to walk to the beach yet sit high enough to enjoy the cool trade winds while lounging on the balcony. After several trips to Rincon and endless hunting we got a call from a local broker letting us know that the house was available. My wife and I were in New York when we received the news and jumped on it. The broker asked us 'don't you want to see it first again?' my wife and I both responded 'no need'. so we did it!!

The neighbors are quiet and friendly. We have been asked to use the scenery for wedding pictures already!! If you do a little homework on Rincon you will see that the Casa Prana is within walking distance of many of the popular attractions in Puntas and yet quiet at night. You are less than 10 minutes by car to the plaza and shopping as well as several other swimming beaches.

Located on one of the best spots for whale watching. Full acre of land. Ample parking. Private locked gate property borders a large estate villa 'Caracol Che' 3 minute walk to beach, eateries, and shops .

From the time we booked this trip, Steve was extremely helpful with everything! He called me to answer my questions, which made me feel very comfortable renting from him! His friend Mark, who let us into the house, was also very helpful and considerate. The house was clean, and very well maintained. The views from the porch deck are gorgeous! There is a grill on the porch, which was awesome. We grilled and watched the sunset. Also, the house is very close to beaches, restaurants, and bars. We walked to Tamboo, Casa Verde, and The Lazy Parrot. Overall, this is a great place to stay and I would 100% recommend it to anyone traveling to the peaceful town of Rincon.
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are glad you enjoy the location as much as us. Hope to see you next year!

Beautiful, tranquil and laid back, are the words evoked by Casa Prana in Rincon, Puerto Rico. The unassuming home provides plenty of space inside, with literally all the comforts of home, but only minutes from beautiful beaches to swim in or surf at. We watched awe inspiring sunsets from the outdoor covered balcony which overlooks the west coast and the coasts of nearby towns Aguada and Anasco.

Rincon is close to the Aguadilla Airport, which is about 35 minutes away so arriving and getting settled in should be a breeze. All along the west coast of Puerto Rico there are known surf breaks. Known as a surf town, Rincon has many beaches along its coastline. The nearest surf breaks to Casa Prana, Steps and Sandy Beach are only one minute away by car. Other surf breaks like Maria's, Domes or Tres Palmas are less than 10 minutes away.

The home was very clean, roomy, comfortable and cool which turns out to be a plus when most day are hot in the caribbean.

Casa Prana is located just steps from Sandy beach. Less than ten minute walk to 'Tamboo' bar and grill , 'Ode to elephant' Thai food. We also recommend The ' Red Flamboyant' restaurant which is a 20 min walk or 2 miles.
