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.

                                                              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!

                                                              Dear Ruth,

                                                              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.

                                                              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.

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!

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 ski​is​. 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​

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Dear Joe,

                                                              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.

                                                              Best Regards,

                                                              Nancy Renee

                                                              You have to stay here!

                                                              Richard F.

                                                              Good day! If you are looking for a vacation that offers both the quiet of Caribbean Beaches and Breezes and the amenities of Resorts, look here! I have stayed at both ​Casa​ ​Serena​ and ​Casa Tamara​ (the adjacent property) every year (mostly) for the last 17 years. There are reasons I keep coming back. First, Rincon is a wonderful town, full of friendly people and great food. From the local grocery store to top notch restaurants and bars, this is a great place to vacation for variety of food and drink. The drive from San Juan is beautiful; and takes you along the coast and through authentic Puerto Rico. Having a car is the recommendation as once you are in Rincon the town offers everything from parasailing, jet skies, horseback riding, mountain-top B&Bs, deep Sea Fishing, Snorkeling, Scuba, Whale Watching, massage and more! Also, Jeff Sinclair in Rincon is a massage therapist who will come to the house and give you a massage on the patio or beach!! HERE IS THE BEST PART! On the flip side, if you want quiet and calm, all you have to do is walk out your front door and it is in front of you... The BEACH! You have the best of all worlds! So while your family and/or friends may be off riding scooters around town, you can relax on the beach with your favorite beverage and think of... Mmmmm.... nothing! It has been wonderful working with Nancy and Gladys over the years. Nancy (owner) is very accommodating and checks in with you during your stay to assure your stay is outstanding. Gladys is the super nice, in-town, caretaker (of both you and the house) and is available 24/7 should you have questions or needs. I can not recommend staying at either Casa Tamera or Serena enough. You have excitement or serenity at your fingertips and the​ ​choice is yours from day-to-day. Have fun!

                                                              Dear Ricky,

                                                              It is always a pleasure to have you as our guest at Casa Tamara and Casa Serena. For people who love the atmosphere of Rincon, we are told that our houses are great and in the best location. I look forward to welcoming you back in March.

                                                              Thanks for your review,


                                                              Perfect vacation!

                                                              Vera T.

                                                              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!

                                                              Dear Vera,

                                                              I am very gratified that you enjoyed your vacation at Casa Tamara. It was our pleasure having you as our guests and we look forward to welcoming you back again.

                                                              Thanks for choosing our home.
