About Ken Collings

We have been coming to Rincon to surf & vacation since 1977. After exploring locales from the Bahamas to Europe & Hawaii to Australia, nowhere do we feel so relaxed & at home as in Rincon. Having grown up on & around the ocean & raising our family on Cape Cod, we cherish every moment we spend in this magical place. We hope you can come discover & enjoy as well!

Ken Collings purchased this house in 2004

Why Ken Collings chose Ensenada

We have always loved the Ensenada area of Rincon because it's the perfect spot to be close to all the best surf breaks on the West/Southside or Carribean Sea side of the Point. The nicest local people you will ever meet. A quiet, family neighborhood, plus walking distance to great restaurants, the dive shop and even town. Our side of the Point tends to be less windy than the Northside, yet always offers a nice breeze.

What makes this house unique

The Tres Palmas Marine Reserve is right out in front of the house! This protected area off of Steps Beach offers fabulous snorkeling! Please view our Listing Video! See endangered turtles, schools of tropical fish, sometimes Dolphin and Whale sightings. Many consider Steps Beach THE BEST beach around. A roof top sunset from Casa Palmas looking out over the big wave break of Tres Palmas can be very awe inspiring!!

Casa Palmas is an outstanding place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Casa Palmas for a week in March. Ken and Karen's place is perfect. First, the location can't be beat. A short (2 minute) walk to Steps beach and the Marina. Second, the villa is terrific - VERY VERY clean, roomy, and comfortable. Ken and Karen keep their property meticulous.

Visitors should know that Rincon and Puerto Rico is coming back strong. All the restaurants, bars and cafes are open. The beaches are beautiful. Thu night Art Walk and Sunday morning Farmers Market are fantastic. And of course Rincon still has the best sunset. The vibe is terrific!

I highly recommend Casa Palmas!

Perfect Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect casa to celebrate my 70th birthday with my siblings and their spouses. The seven of us rented the whole house which was clean and well maintained inside and out. It included everything that we needed. We played games on the veranda in the evenings. It is in walking distance of the beach where I found sea glass to add to my collection. We enjoyed the art show at the Plaza and three of us went on a guided horseback ride one day. There are many great restaurants in the area including The English Rose and Cowboys Cantina. We hope to stay here again some day--maybe when my younger sister turns 70! Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting in the Rincon area.

Relaxing, totally enjoyable 2 weeks at Casa Palmas

  • 5 of 5

Great location and a very comfortable and well cared for house. Quiet neighborhood. Short walk to 2 beaches and 3 restaurants. Shipwrecks, which offers fresh catch fish and locally sourced produce from a small farm right up the street. And Copa lLena right on the beach (previously called The Spot) with the best sunset view and an awesome menu to go with it. And from Casa Palmas, it's only a short drive to many other restaurants and beaches where you can snorkle, surf, paddle board, or just relax on the beach. The house has a full easy to use well equipped kitchen both upstairs and down. We have been going there for 8 or 9 years now, and can't wait to return next year. The house is always very clean and well cared for with everything you need provided. Nice lawn and 2 driveways, 1 for upstairs parking and 1 for down.

All the bad press about the damage in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria does not apply to this Rincon location. We had electricity, water, internet and cable.

We highly recommend vacationing at Casa Palmas. Truly one of the premier homes in the area.

Great place, great host. Clean and worry free. Steps from the beach and food carts. Great kitchen with serious utensils to make that perfect pernil dish. Coming back for sure.

From Germany to Rincon!!

  • 5 of 5

Being on the huge balcony after dinner, up in the palms with the sounds of the coqui was heavenly! We were just a few minutes by foot to the beach where we relaxed all day long. Would love to go back. Thanks, Ken.

Coqui frogs at night, roosters in the morning

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed upstairs, after canceling the bottom half of the house due to a family of four in our group canceling. Owners were very accommodating and found other renters for the bottom apartment. The upstairs was clean and perfectly furnished. We had everything we needed from an ironing board, and hair dryer, to all kitchen appliances. The patio off the living room is a perfect place to relax if you're not out surfing, snorkeling, or eating. Perfect location--very close to Steps Beach and Carta Buena, walking distance to Marina Beach, Shipwreck and La Copa Llena. We love the peaceful neighborhood of Ensenada and would love to stay in this house on our next visit to Rincon.
