Overview

About the property

2 BRs, 3.5 baths, wi-fi, roof top terrace, fenced in yard, hot tub,dipping pool

Why choose Suite 8? Because we believe that everyone deserves the best vacation possible, and we are committed to help make it happen. Soak up the sun and sea at Suite 8, on one of the most beautiful beaches in the region - Corcega Beach.

Suite 8 is in the Stella Community of Rincon, a welcoming and friendly family neighborhood. The uncrowded beach is steps from our front door and is the perfect spot for swimming, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, or just resting in the sun or under a palm tree.

Ours is the most spacious and private of the 8 townhouses at Wave Coast. It is fully equipped with top-of-the-line EVERYTHING. Our style is cool and clean, furnished with leather couches and local art. Everything is bright, fresh, and oh-so-Carribbean. We have excellent wi-fi, so stay connected, it's no problem.

Including the roof-top terrace, Suite 8 is a spacious 3-story property (2100 sq.ft.), air conditioned throughout.

Upon your arrival, you will find an informative Guest Book that provides information about a wide variety of local attractions, excursions, beaches, restaurants, sports facilities, and resources.

The ground floor living space has leather sofas and leather easy chair, a flat-screen TV, coffee table, and sunny windows. From the living area, sliding glass doors open to the patio with dipping pool and picnic table. Kids and adults will love to cool off and play in the private dipping pool, which is crystal clear. The patio and dipping pool are yours alone, and the entire backyard area is fenced in.

Modern, well equipped kitchen with pots, pans, serving ware, wine and martini glasses, coffee pot, tea kettle and espresso maker, cutlery, pretty dish towels, and every cooking tool you could need. You'll find sippy-cups and baby dishes. We even stock the paper towels and dish soap. There is a dining table with 4 chairs, as well as a "bar" with 2 stools. Upon your arrival, we provide coffee, and other basic supplies (sugar packets, salt, pepper, napkins, aluminum foil, etc. ) to get you started. And in case you're wondering, the tap water is fine to drink.

There is also a modern, tiled ½ bathroom on the 1st floor with toilet and sink and mirror.

On the 2nd floor, the large master bedroom suite has a queen bed, large dresser with mirror, sunny windows, closet, luggage stands, 2 bedside tables with reading lamps, and full modern tiled bathroom.

The second large bedroom has 2 queen beds, bedside tables and lamps, 2 closets, cool local art, and another full modern tiled bathroom, right beside it.

6 adults can easily stay and have plenty of space, but it is equally great for a small party of 2. Couples on honeymoon or romantic vacations will be delighted, as will smaller groups of travelers. We also love kids, and have 2 'pac-n-plays', 'sippy cups', beach toys, and board games.

Soft bedsheets, nice bath towels, and beach towels are provided. We even have a "magic closet" with sample sized basic products that you may have forgotten (like mini-tooth paste tubes, deodorant, band-aides, etc).

Forgot to bring a book or finished the one you are reading? We have a small "library" that you can feel free to take a book or leave one for future guests.

Our gorgeous roof-top terrace has a private jacuzzi, gas grill, mini-fridge, table and chairs, lounge chairs, another bathroom, and ocean views. Great place for breakfast, an adult beverage, BBQ, or star gazing from the hot-tub.

Our large, private garage is stocked with paddle-boards, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach toys, and bicycles. There is a FULL SIZE washer and dryer, because having clean clothes is a non-negotiable!

Everything you need is within a mile or 2 of Suite 8. Downtown Rincon, Farmer's Market, Art Walk, coffee shops, delicious restaurants, a new wine store, a local meat market, fruit vendors, food trucks, pharmacy, playground, a sports complex, and 2 modern grocery stores.

If you need any assistance, our gracious property manager is always available and only a phone call away.

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 ocean, good food and wine, fresh air, reading, scuba-diving, music, exercise of all kinds, paddle-boarding, and just being sluggos on the beach.

Robyn Schenck purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Robyn Schenck chose Rincon

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 9 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.

Perfect: Luxurious and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time staying at Suite 8 and definitely not our last! Robyn and Andy think of everything that their guests might need and then add even more thoughtful comforts. The beds are comfortable and linens plush. Kitchen is fully equipped, bathrooms (4 of them!) clean, decor is stylish with plenty of comfortable seating. Outside, the private dipping pool is inviting and picnic table ready for happy hour snacks and drinks! My husband's favorite spot was on the roof-top terrace. We had a number of BBQ dinners up there, enjoying the evening breeze and listening to the waves on the nearby beach (and I truly mean nearby - less than a minute walk!). Speaking of the beach, we easily carried the available paddle boards down and had fun with them. This beach has tons of sea glass and is great for snorkeling. My daughter and I also love snorkeling at Steps Beach (a short drive) with more amazing underwater seascape and creatures to see. We love being in a community with locals, chickens and dogs - we felt a part of the community which is important for us (we are not resort people). We rented a car for our week and Suite 8 was a perfect home-base for our excursions (downtown Rincon for pastries, Sunday farmer's market, Art Walk on Thursday; waterfall adventures; day trip to Old San Juan...). Josue, Robyn's property manager, responded immediately and was patient with my questions. A totally stress-free and extremely fun vacation. (I didn't even mention the amazing food - but you'll have to go and experience that for yourself!)

Owner's Response: Dear LN, Thank you so much for your thoughtful and very comprehensive review. It is my pleasure to have had you and your family for a second visit, and I hope you will stay at Suite 8 again in the future. I'm so glad you enjoyed all we try to do to make Suite 8 the most comfortable, clean, well equipped, and (dare I say) luxurious home-base for a delightful vacation. Your review said it all. Thanks again for choosing to stay at Suite 8, and do hope you will become one of our "regulars." Warmly, Robyn and Andy

AWESOME VACATION TOWNHOUSE!!!

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse had it all! A private pool, rooftop jacuzzi, well provisioned kitchen (you just need to grocery shop - which is easy since 1 grocery store within walking distance and another one only a 2 minute drive), 3 1/2 baths. Beach access is literally a 2 minute walk -only 1/2 block away. And the adorable town of Rincon is only a 3 minute drive away.

The townhouse has nicely appointed furnishings, linens and towels, is modern, updated and extremely comfortable!! The 2nd bedroom has 2 queen size beds, which is very unusual for a vacation rental with a bedroom with 2 beds - usually they are 2 twins. Two big bonuses - a 1/2 bath on the main level so when you're hanging out by the pool, you don't have to go up to the 2nd level to use the bathrooms. Also a full bath on the rooftop which provides the same convenience when using the jacuzzi!!

The owners provided a great information booklet that contained all kinds of great dining and activities suggestions.

The only problem we had was the plastic covering on the jacuzzi on/off button was wearing thin and eventually broke through near the end of our stay and we were unable to turn the jacuzzi on and off. However, I contacted the owner and the management representative right away, so hopefull it will be fixed before the next renters arrive.

Thank you Robyn and Andy for sharing your beautiful townhouse with the traveling public! We would definitely stay here again the next time we're in Rincon!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your review. So glad you had a great stay at Suite 8, and I really appreciate all of the details you addressed in your review. I didn't realize that we are unique in having 2 queen beds (as opposed to twin beds) in the 2nd bedroom! Thanks also for the feedback on our guest book. Glad you found it helpful. I recently revised and updated it and it's great to hear that you used it to find fun things to do and great places to eat and drink. You were wonderful guests to host and we hope you do return soon. Best wishes, Robyn

Repeat Visitor - It Gets Better Each Time

  • 5 of 5

What a great property.

Each time we've stayed, we are surprised that the owners have found new ways to enhance the townhouse. It couldn't be cleaner. It has everything we could possibly need. And it is convenient to all attractions and restaurants. We will definitely be back!

Great place, clean, comfy, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Robyn and Andy's place is great. Very comfortable and clean, it has all the amenities needed for cooking (even has a rooftop grill!) and going to the beach. The pool and roof top jacuzzi are ideal for just hanging out and relaxing. The location could not be better. Literally steps from a very nice beach good for laying out and swimming. We took a long walk on this beach the first day we got there and I can say it was beautiful.

The house is also within minutes from other attractions (bars,restaurants, food trucks and other amazing beaches). Both the owner and manager were very accessible and provided good, prompt service.

The owners put together a binder for guests with all sorts of great recommendations on where to eat and what to do in Rincon (we tried many on them!)

I highly recommend this place!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your great review! You were awesome guests, and you are so welcome to come again. Glad you enjoyed all the good stuff we provide at Suite 8, and how close it is to the beach. Isn't the beach awesome? Great snorkeling, and no crowds. We also appreciate you mentioning how nice and clean we keep things (including that delightful dipping pool and the jacuzzi). It is so nice to get the feedback, as we really aim to please. Rincon has so much fun to offer, and it sounds like you tapped in to plenty of it. We really hope you'll come back again. R & A

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.
