About Robyn Schenck
Andy and Robyn fell in love with Rincon, Puerto Rico while taking a vacation with our daughters in 2004. On a second trip to Rincon, in 2007, we stumbled upon our townhouse - still under construction at the time - and we were hooked. Andy was born in Venezuela. He spent his boyhood in the tropics. Rincon had the tropical vibe that just felt like coming home to him. Robyn grew up in a suburb of NYC. She spent a lot of time at the beaches of Long Island when she was a girl, and has always loved the ocean. The warm water of the sea surrounding Rincon was a delightful surprise, which continues to enchant her. When we are not in Rincon, Robyn is a special educator and Andy is an engineer in northern New England. We have 4 grown children, who all LOVE Suite 8 in Rincon. They are old enough to come on their own, with partners and / or friends, and they enjoy it as much as we do. It's also such a joy when we can have time with them at Suite 8. Some of our favorite things are the healthy life-style of being in the Carribbean: swimming, snorkeling, and paddle-boarding in the ocean, and eating delicious local mangos, avacados, and papayas. Thursday night Art Walk downtown, Tuesday evening Open Mike at Calypso Cafe, Sunday morning Farmer's Market on the Plaza, awesome restaurants and lively local bars(which are all kid-friendly), and often have live music, are amongst our favs. The community is safe, friendly, chill, and welcoming. We also enjoy being sluggos on the beach.
Robyn Schenck purchased this Townhome in 2008
Why Robyn Schenck chose Stella
Suite 8 in Rincon was the perfect spot for us. It is steps away from the calmer part of the surf in Rincon, and we love that we can swim, paddle-board, and snorkel right off the uncrowded beach. It is close enough to the surfer beaches, so we can play at those beaches, too. But we love that we can leave the wilder, crazier scene to go home to Suite 8 in the evenings. Suite 8 was built 10 years ago, so it is still relatively new. When we found it, the layout, views, sunny windows, and solid structure of the building really impressed us. Plus, the end unit we chose gave us our own side lawn and extra privacy. We particularly loved the proximity to the beach, and peaceful, safe, and friendly family neighborhood. We've maintained and upgraded Suite 8 scrupulously. You will always find it in excellent condition with fresh paint and everything clean, comfortable, and in good working order. We make sure to stock it with everything we would hope to find, if we were the renters. We love the privacy of sun-bathing on the roof-top terrace, or slipping into the private jacuzzi in the evenings to look at the stars. Robyn goes running alone most mornings, and enjoys the beauty of the vistas overlooking the bright blue sea. We find ripe mangos falling from the trees all around our property. We also love that, although our neighborhood is very typically Puerto Rican - with roosters crowing, and the smell of delicious Caribbean home cooking all around - most people speak English, so it is very easy to strike up a conversation with folks we meet. We hope to retire at Suite 8 in about 10 years.
What makes this Townhome unique
The 8 unit building is very modern, but we are the only building of this kind on our street. The other residences are inhabited by local "Rinconians." Our neighbors are very friendly, and take pride in their street and community. The building is actually unique and kind of lovely, in and of itself. It is not a high-rise, like many of the older "condiminiums." It is white with blue trim, which blends with the ocean colors in a low-key, elegant way. Suite 8 is also kind of environmentally conscious - we use solar energy to heat most of our water (there is a back-up water-heater, which is very seldom needed). Most of us come to Rincon for the relaxation, and the mellow island vibe. Still, we do enjoy the easily accessible 'sub-community' of health conscious and athletic people. Rincon hosts many sporting events for bikers, triathletes, tennis players, and surfers. There is a wonderful sports facility less than a mile from Suite 8, where you will see folks of all ages walking the track or taking an outdoors aerobics class, every morning.

It was relaxing and invigorating!!!
The property was what we expected. Everything was easy to access. It was clean and organized making our stay relaxing and worry free!!!
Great unit, perfect size and location for our crew. Our two kids (6 and 4) loved the dipping pool, it kept them happily entertained no matter what else was going on. Perfect location, just a few minutes to most everything we wanted to do. The only unfortunate thing we found is that the nearby beach wasn't spared from hurricane damage, there wasn't quite enough space for us to spread out and feel safe with the kids with most of the sand scoured away and the water always no more than just a few yards away. But there were terrific beaches just a few minutes away, we hit the Balneario de Rincon daily and couldn't have been happier. The owners and managers were all very responsive to all questions. We loved our stay here and hope to be back!
Thank you very much for your review. I'm so glad your family enjoyed our townhouse, and the dipping pool, and the proximity to everything.
I'm sorry to hear about the beach! It actually is not that the beach was washed out by the hurricane - we been there many times since the hurricane and had plenty of beach. From year to year, and season to season, we have found that the width of the beach does change.The shoreline is affected by waves (produced by wind at sea) and tides ... by the gravitational effect of the moon and sun). I'm sorry it was narrow during your stay, but very glad you enjoyed the other nearby beaches.
You were lovely guests, and we hope you return to our townhouse in the future.
Robyn and Andy
Time to relax
It was a beautiful stay. Lots of quite time to relax. It's a little bet far from lots of attractions but a awesome experience.
Amazing place,love it for couples or whole family
I love the pool and the view to the beach very close, amazing jacuzzi and everything on place,thank you
Great location in the perfect lively town
We had an amazing time in Rincón at Suite 8! Beach chairs, sand toys, kid dishes, and a washing machine were especially appreciated as we were traveling with our 3&5 year old boys. The beach is truly a minute (or 2 with kids) away. The town and the beaches a drive away were also amazing, especially the Thursday night Art Walk downtown. The only thing I’d recommend bringing is a sound machine to drown out the roosters and dogs at night. We will definitely be returning and that’s the one thing we’ll make sure we bring along. I highly recommend this rental :)
Thank you VERY much for your great review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, and I really do hope that you and your lovely family will come again.
If you come again, I promise there will be a noise cancelling machine. What a fabulous suggestion! Those roosters come and go, which is just a natural part of being in a Puerto Rican town. We have always provided ear plugs for our light sleepers, but you suggestion is spot-on. I will definitely purchase a "white noise" machine.
I'm so glad you enjoyed all of our amenities for your boys, and how close we are to the beach and the town. So glad you had a nice stay. Come back!
Great Condo!! Fabulous rooftop.
We will be back!! Robyn was fantastic to work with. You won’t be disappointed in this condo. It met and exceeded our expectations. This was our first trip to Rincon. We are coming back!!
Suite 8 at Wave Coast is located in a safe, friendly residential neighborhood. It is different than many of the other newly constructed properties, as it is not in the midst of a huge development. It is on a quiet street that ends at one of the most desirable beaches in Rincon.
New construction is booming in Rincon, with clusters of condominiums all squashed together. That is what makes our home different. Suite 8 is a fresh new building, but it stands alone amongst regular houses on a pretty little street.
Suite 8 is the most spacious and private of the 8-unit building. Suite 8 is 3 stories of lovely and delicious living area, offering a small side yard and bright windows on 3 sides of the building.
Although our townhouse is in a quiet neighborhood with a very private beach, you will be within walking distance of lively beach-side restaurants and bars, grocery stores, a pharmacy, playground, Rincon village, a sports complex, and most importantly, great beaches. It's the perfect spot for a romantic get-away or a family vacation. Fruit trees surround us, as does the sound of the ocean (and an occasional rooster!) Above all, our favorite thing about Rincon is the people. Our neighbors are friendly and welcoming.
The snorkeling right off our beach is some of the best in the region. We also offer a guest book, full of detailed information about activities and excursions - including eco-tours, hiking through ancient caves, fishing, golf, para-sailing, scuba diving, surfing, and much, much more.
