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 Rincon

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. AND the views of the Sea and Sunsets are magnificent! www.RinconVillas.com check it out!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I hope you & your family have spent the holidays in your lovely home in Rincon. My friends and I truly enjoyed our stay there in November. Your home is very warm & inviting and of course the location is perfect! We absolutely loved your beach and took daily walks along the shore. The sunsets were as spectacular as you had said they would be. The local people, food and coastal areas were all terrific. It was a vacation we will remember for a long time.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend Casa Tamara for a lovely, relaxing, and comfortable stay in Rincon. Located in Stella in the southern part of Rincon, Casa Tamara is ideally situated for guests who enjoy being on a swimming beach during the day, but still want to be close to the delicious restaurants in "town." We stayed in both the upstairs and downstairs apartments, and found them both to be beautifully appointed, immaculately clean, and quite spacious. The sunset view from the upstairs terrace is breathtaking. We enjoyed cocktails from the terrace every evening before heading out to dinner. Nancy, the landlord, was a pleasure to work with - responsive and accommodating - and also a wealth of information on all the fun that Rincon has to offer. We can't wait to go back!

Enchanting

  • 5 of 5

We were in Rincon for a wedding in 2014 and we stayed the week of Thanksgiving in Casa Tamara. About 60 other wedding attendees stayed in various places scattered through the immediate area. By the end of the week, we had learned that we "Hit the Jackpot" with Casa Tamara. Here's why: The property provides direct access to the beach. You simply roll out of bed and a few steps later, you are on the beach. It simply does not get better than that. At night, the surf puts you to sleep. Having never experienced life on a farm, the first morning was definitely a shock when the roosters sang. But this turned out to be part of the charm of the whole place. The property provides secure and level parking, on site laundry equipment,and a remarkably well equipped kitchen. Cooking and meal preparation is a breeze with several grocers, bakeries, and street side vendors selling fresh local produce all providing all the basic necessities. Do not overlook the street vendors preparing rotisserie chicken al carbon! This will be the most delicious thing you will eat and very inexpensive ($8 for a whole chicken). We rarely operated the window AC units but when we did, they performed adequately and as expected providing plenty of comfort. All baths were clean and well appointed. The only thing I would have liked was a good quality Weber Kettle Grill. The one provided is usable but The Weber is the gold standard for charcoal grilling and I really missed it. Nevertheless, we were able to grill delicious skirt steak that everyone thoroughly enjoyed. We enjoyed our stay so much that on our last day we all decided to come back in November 2015. And we did! Nancy was very helpful and so was Gladys. They located someone to prepare delicious traditional "pasteles" for us and these were a big hit too. If you are in Rincon, there is little to be gained by staying anywhere else at any price.

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded expectations. Nancy the owner accommodated our early arrival no problem, that started our vacation on the right note. The house was clean, more than comfortable for our party of 5, provided every possible necessity in the kitchen as well as beach access (towels, beach chairs, noodles, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, beer cooler, etc) above and beyond our expectations. We were lucky with amazing weather and to have Noche de San Juan during our stay. Having Hotel Viila Cofresi within walking distance was fun and very convenient to go eat and hang out also food markets, and bars were walking distance or short car ride. We come from Florida so AC was absolutely a necessity to sleep but during the day the house was very cool with an amazing beach breeze running through and plenty of windows to make that happen. We bbq in the house, made lots of piña Coladas and had a nice time enjoying our patio and direct beach access. Other town beaches like Los Jobos in Isabela, Boqueron in Cabo Rojo and Guilligans Island in Guanica were amazing and no more than 30 or 1.5 hr drive from the house and so worth it, we also did a zip lining, hiking trip to Utuado and it was a beautiful ride of 1.5 hrs. This part of the island is beautifully green, people are amicable, beaches are beautiful and this house is smack in the middle of it all.

We look forward to returning to this beautiful house and continue exploring many other places we didn't get to see in amazing Rincon.

We left some property behind in our room and contacting Nancy for its return was very easy and non stressful, greatly appreciated.

Thanks again to Nancy and her property manager (can't remember her name) she was very attentive also

Hope to see you again soon

Wow!! I have never rented a house before. It was my wife's idea to get away from the hotels and venture to the other side of the island. I was skeptical. My son is stationed in the US Coast Guard in San Juan and wanted to visit the west side of the island as well. My wife went on the vrbo web site and found Casa Tamara. My wife's best friend is named Tamara, so we were destined to try it. What an awesome house and location. There was everything and more in the house: Snorkeling equipment, blender for frozen drinks, grill, children's beach toys....too much to name. The only thing we had to buy for the house was food and of course beer.

Is you like snorkeling, you will be in paradise. Right there at the house I must have seen 100 varieties of fish. I regret not bringing my underwater camera from home, along with my scuba license.

In closing I would like to say that the Owner and care keeper are as nice as the house.

paradise!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just recently returned from an amazing week at Casa Tamara. We had a fabulous stay. Thank you Nancy for such a great house! We found it was fully equipped for our family of 6. The 3 bedrooms/3 bathrooms provided spacious accommodations for all of us. The fans in the bedrooms were perfect and we did not find a need to turn on the AC. Maybe that is because we are from Canada and treasure any moment of heat that we can get. The kitchen was set up so well. We had everything we needed to make our meals. The backyard was dreamy! We loved spending our time eating out on the patio, swinging on the hammock, or relaxing on a lounge chair. The beach was ideal!! It felt like it was our very own private beach. What a luxury to step right out of our house onto the beach. We spent many hours there and loved watching the sunsets. We did also venture out to different beaches throughout Rincon for surfing, snorkeling, and boogie boarding. They were all within a few minutes drive.This was our most favorite vacation and we plan on returning for longer next time. We can't wait!!

Restful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We love Rincon Villas! We have stayed at Casa Serena in the past. This was our first time at Casa Tamara. Everything you need is there. We love being able to eat on the porch and watch the amazing sunsets. The yard is lovely and the beach is right there. The house manager is available if there are any issues and responds quickly. (We had trouble figuring out the TV the first night.) Rincon is a wonderful place to vacation. There are great beaches and restaurants. Everyone is very friendly. We love the laid back atmosphere. We will be sure to return as soon as we can!
