About Steven Mucciolo or Grisselle Rivera Mucciolo

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

Why Steven Mucciolo or Grisselle Rivera Mucciolo chose Rincon

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.

What makes this villa unique

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 .

Guestbook comments from the owner

Steve was very helpful. The house was very clean. We got to the house at 4am and they had coffee and goodies waiting for us. Great view and very convenient locations to 413 and the local restaurants

Great week at a beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 (3 children, 12, 13, 16) came for a week over the winter break. We had a fantastic time at Casa Prana! The home was exactly as described, and the property was very clean and well cared for. I would absolutely recommend this home to a friend, and we would love to come back! Our family enjoyed Sandy Beach, Crashboat Beach, hiking in to waterfalls, eating at Tamboo and Cowboys, and generally enjoying the warm weather and relaxation.

WOW Rincon and Casa Prana!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 5 (20,18,14 YO boys) spent a week over Christmas here and we loved it. Rincon is a beautiful location if you want to get away and enjoy some of the best beaches, surf, relaxation, snorkeling and just time away from the rat race. The property is just up the hill from Sandy Beach, by far one of our favorite beaches now. The house was very clean with everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. We would without a doubt rent here again. Steve was very easy to work with. Mark met us at the house when we arrived and made sure everything was in working order. Both provided advice on who to contact based on our interests. We were looking for a place where we could just relax and spend a lot of time on the beach and Casa Prana did not disappoint. Domes, Marina, Steps, and Sandy Beach were all extremely close, the longest drive was 5 minutes. With older the boys the downstairs sleeping space was perfect as they had their own space and could sleep-in while my wife and I occupied the main floor. Our favorite spot was the back deck that has a wonderful view of the ocean, foliage and a great place to unwind after a day at the beach and play cribbage. We honestly cannot wait to go back. All you need to bring is your bathing suite and suntan lotion everything else is there for your use including beach towels, chairs, beach cooler and umbrellas.

Un Fin de Semana Maravilloso

  • 5 of 5

Salimos para Casa Prana un viernes luego de un ajetreado día de trabajo y llegamos en la noche. Todo estaba muy limpio y organizado, el Administrador nos enseñó todas las facilidades y utilidades del lugar. Cuando despertamos y abrimos las ventanas, ¡WOW, parecía que estábamos en el paraíso! Los coloridos paisajes, el cantar de los pájaros, la hermosa vegetación y los bellos detalles con los que cuenta la propiedad, los cuales pudimos apreciar mucho mejor durante el día. La casa cuenta con la conveniencia de utilidades como: cocina equipada, sillas y sombrillas de playa, aire central y un BBQ “grill” en el acogedor balcón, entre otros. En resumen un fin de semana maravilloso….

Unforgettable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

When I have thought in a good vacation, I usually have in mind travel to another country. I used to think like that until I have visited Casa Prana in Rincón, Puerto Rico. Casa Prana is a beautiful place with an amazing ocean view. In this place you can have the option to have a very good rest from the noisy and stressful city or have fun and enjoy the beautiful places in or near from Rincón, like its wonderful beaches and the local restaurants. I really had a good time in Casa Prana. If you really want to have an unforgettable vacation, Casa Prana is the place.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you got a chance to "get away" from the stress of daily life. We are starting to see many Puerto Ricans exploring the west coast and we are so glad you liked our property! See you again soon Namaste Steve

Sweeping views, great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

The property was neat as a pin, modern, clean, and well-maintained. Set up on a hill, there were magnificent ocean views. The outdoor porch was an oasis and focal point of the house where we relaxed and barbecued. We even caught a glimpse of some whales! The location is perfect, just slightly off the beaten path yet an easy walk to surfing beaches and restaurants. I hope to return soon and would recommend highly to anyone visiting Rincon!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

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.
