About Nancy Renee
My mom and her friend, two teachers, went on a trip together, travelling around Puerto Rico during a school vacation. 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. The following year, they decided they wanted a place of their own in Rincon. They knew what they wanted and looked for a house on a calm beach but close to everything. They found our other house, which they named Casa Serena, it was in the perfect location. They bought the house, totally gutted it, rebuilt it and spent winters here together. They vacationed at Casa Serena as much as they could and eventually started renting it when they weren't there. When my husband and kids and I went to Rincon for 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 garden, my son likes all kinds of water sports, my husband and I like to try all the new restaurants, relax and do some sightseeing. So my mother and I decided to buy the land next to Casa Serena and build a new, larger house. When we built Casa Tamara, it was designed as a rental home from the beginning, but since our extended family loves Rincon so much, we often reserve Casa Tamara or both houses for our own family and friends and have lots of room for everyone. My mother's friend who originally discovered Rincon with my Mom, moved to Rincon permanently when she and her husband retired; they loved Rincon so much that they never wanted to leave.
Nancy Renee purchased this House in 1991
Why Nancy Renee chose Stella
My mom was early to discover Rincon and really found a house in the perfect location. We are on the best beach for swimming and since it is in a residential community, it is not filled with tourists, so most of the time the only people on the beach are the people renting the houses along the beach. It is almost like having a private beach and yet we are close to a supermarket, shops, restaurants and a short walk down the beach from a small family hotel with a beach bar, restaurant and equipment rentals. If you anyone wants to surf, it is a short drive to the surfing beaches.
What makes this House unique
Besides the best location in Rincon, our homes have other unique advantages. We have a fenced in garden yard, great for children to runaround and play without you being worried that they will run right into the water and also great for sunbathing or reading on our lounge chairs and hammocks. Our homes are not built right up to the houses on both sides, there is a private driveway for off street parking for each rental. AND it is a short walk to Villa Cofresi, with beach bar and restaurant and rentals of kayaks, jet skiis, paddle boards etc. And 3 blocks to the supermarket and a few restaurants and shops. Really the best location.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Nice beach location close to city
We had a lovely time in Rincon with our three boys 18,16 and 12.
Beach was quiet and great for snorkeling be sure to bring your water shoes as the underwater rock outcroppings are great for harbouring colorful fish but also sea urchins, which are beautiful to see up close!
We bought our own gear but if you need back up there was a nice collection of water shoes, floaties, wake boards for guest use which was nice. There are also several local shops that can hook you up as well.
The hurricane has changed the size of the beach but we still spent days wake boarding and snorkeling right outside the house. The mix of ocean sounds, roosters and classic Puerto Rican neighborhood sounds were part of the experience.
Lots of great restaurants and day trips to take in as well as local surf lessons and excursions.
The house guests above us were great. And Nancy called to check in with us on the house phone the day of our arrival to make sure everything was in order.
Favorite local tag line:
Rincon hwy 413 road to happiness!
Dear Laura and family,
Thanks for choosing our house for your Rincon vacation. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your visit and our home. I arrived the morning you checked out and just missed you. I am glad that you mentioned the snorkeling right in front of our house, which many of our guests have enjoyed for many years. We hope you come back again, anytime.
Wonderful Family Vacation at Casa Tamara
This past July my family and I had the pleasure of spending our family vacation at Casa Tamara! We are a family of five ( 2 adults and 3 children under the age of 10) with my in-laws joining us as well. When planning our vacation we knew we wanted to spend our vacation beachfront at a calm, swimmable beach. We also knew looking for the perfect vacation rental after Hurricane Maria would be challenging. In our research, we were lucky enough to find Casa Tamara and rented the bottom unit. The owner, Nancy, was excellent, super responsive and answered all of our questions and concerns. Her property is beautiful and has everything we were looking for in a vacation rental. The unit is super spacious. All together we were 7 and it never felt crowded at any time. The property has three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. It also has more than ample seating- a long kitchen counter with stools as well as inside and outside full dining sets. The unit is also fully equipped with everything you need, making cooking, barbequing, and everyday living very easy. Gladys, the property manager, was also excellent, easily accessible and very helpful.The best part, and the reason we ultimately chose Casa Tamara, is the incomparable, beautiful beachfront location and access. Casa Tamara is located on Playa Corcega and thankfully after Hurricane Maria, Nancy's part of the beach is still great. We walked along the beach from Coconut Palms down to Villa Cofresi, and Nancy's beach access is by far the best. She also has the most beautiful and large patio equipped with lots of furniture to enjoy the ocean views and just relax. The house is also fully equipped with beach chairs, umbrellas and sand toys. Our children spent hours on end swimming in front of the house and we can't say enough good things about Casa Tamara. Nancy also has a smaller house next door with 2 bedrooms in each unit that share the same great outdoors and beach ( listing# 312192). We will be returning for sure! Thank you Nancy.
Thanks for the great review, it will be helpful to prospective guests who want to be sure to find a house that is totally back to normal and even improved after hurricane Maria. You were great guests and we look forward to welcoming you back to Casa Tamara or Casa Serena sometime soon.
Great house, beautiful beaches, wonderful sunsets
My family and I stayed during the week of Christmas 2017. The house was in great shape and the electricity was on! It was truly amazing what a transformation took place over the ten days that we were there - landscapers were working hard to make things right and they did a beautiful job. Rincon is green again and all the restaurants, grocery stores, shops are open! The Art Walk snd the Farmers market were both in full swing! The sunsets are still beautiful!
It was our pleasure to host your family for their holiday work vacation. Rincon thanks your family for spending your vacation volunteering, working on repairing the damage caused by Hurricane Maria. Thanks so much for choosing Casa Tamara for your vacation. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
Serenity by the Sea
Casa Tamara was the perfect tropical retreat for our family. Every afternoon we had a spectacular sunset. There is excellent swimming and snorkeling just outside the door.
We would gladly recommend staying at Casa Tamara.
Thanks for choosing our home for your vacation and being great guests. We look forward to welcoming you back anytime.
Ms.Nancy, thank you again so much for accommodating our last minute booking. The villas were beautiful and clean! The beach was right there in the yard!! Nothing beats having dinner on the patio while watching the sunset! I loved how you had everything that we needed to cook, clean, and entertain. We could not have been more pleased or happy!!Thank you!

Dear Mike and Reagan,
Thanks for choosing Casa Tamara for your visit and for enjoying our home and our beach. We make every effort to provide everything our guests will need, so it is always gratifying when our guest tell us that we have succeeded! It was a pleasure having you and we hope you come back again for a longer visit.
Hi Nancy, I wrote this on behalf of my family.
My wife and I recently rented both Casa Serena & both Casa Tamara for a large family getaway. What a treat! Nancy, the owner, was very accessible before and during our vacation and Gladys, the super sweet manager, greeted us at the homes and welcomed my relatives with a wide smile. The property was breath taking! The insides of the houses are very nicely furnished and fully equipped, including cable tv in the living rooms and in 2 of the bedrooms in Casa Tamara, WIFI, barbecues, lots of lounge chairs and plenty of beach towels. The porch is roomy and overlooks the Caribbean with view of beautiful sunsets.
We had a large family BBQ on the lawn, grateful to be away from the city but near to the action. Rincon has several great restaurants, amazing scuba driving, snorkeling right in front of the house, parasailing, and a very nice hotel down the beach for food, a beach bar, dancing and they even rent kayaks and jet skiis. Some of us wanted to explore the island and there were a number of great day trips close enough to Rincon. We definitely plan on returning.
Thank you Nancy & Gladys for all of your warmth and help. My family and I loved it all!
Joseph and Family
It was a pleasure having you and your family at our two houses. I spoke to your wife and she told me that she particularly liked having two houses so that she had a little privacy in the morning for her morning coffee and could gradually get up before joining the whole group for the day. Thanks for choosing our homes and for your appreciation of the attention we give to our houses and to our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
