Enjoying this wonderful beach with a choice of sun or shade
VRBO Bear stayed here - 07/08/2012 Mr. Bear and I decided to spend our long-overdue honeymoon in the relaxed town of Rincon, Puerto Rico. We were pleasantly surprised by the owner of Casa Serena, who took the time to describe the town and property in advance to ensure it met our expectations. She also provided us with maps, a list of restaurants and the necessary instructions to ensure we had a great stay.
Upon arrival, we could not believe the true proximity of the house to the beach – literally steps from the backyard gate! The crashing waves could be heard through the large screened windows – a constant reminder that we were on vacation even when we were indoors!
We feasted on the ripe mangos from the tree in the backyard, swam in the relaxing warm waters, and went snorkeling at the nature reserve just on the other side of town. Rincon and its surrounding areas have a lot to offer, but having Casa Serena as our “den away from home” made all the difference in the enjoyment of our stay.
Located in a residential neighborhood, Casa Serena is ideal for the laid-back bear who wishes to embrace the authentic Puerto Rico experience. (This picture is the almond tree just outside the backyard gate.)

Area: Rincon is a fishing village and a great beach town on the west coast, where the Atlantic Ocean and The Caribbean Sea meet. We are on the calm, warm, Caribbean side of Rincon
It is casual, not touristy.
It's a great place to come to get away from the big city, relax, swim, watch sunsets, go sightseeing, and relax. You don't need a car but it is useful. Near our house is a large supermarket, bakeries, take out food and the town of Rincon with stores, the town square, churches, video stores, and more, all within walking distance. It's just a short walk to some restaurants and a short ride to many more.
And sight-seeing is great, the tropical rain forest, Camuy caves, Arecibo observator and a coffee plantation.
Our Availability Calendar shows when at least one of the units is available; the other unit may already be rented.
If the calendar says that a date is not available, it means that both units are already rented.
My mom and her friend, two teachers, went on a vacation together, travelling around Puerto Rico. When they discovered Rincon, they fell in love with it and decided to come back with their husbands. The two couples had discovered their perfect Caribbean refuge. They looked for a house on a calm beach and found this one in the perfect location. They bought the house, totally gutted it, rebuilt it and spent winters here together. After my mother brought me in on the secret, we decided to build Casa Tamara next door. The two couples vacationed at Casa Serena as much as they could and eventually started renting it when they weren't there. The other couple loved Rincon so much that they moved to Rincon permanently when they retired. When my husband and kids and I went to Rincon the first time, it was love at first sight! We fell in love with the laid back atmosphere and friendliness of everyone in Rincon. It offered something for everyone; my daughter likes to sunbathe and swim and relax in our back yard, my son likes all kinds of water sports, my husband and I like to try all the new restaurants, relax and do some sightseeing. A number of years ago, I took over the rentals and truly enjoy spreading the message of this very special vacation town.
