Guestbook comments from the owner

VRBO Bear stayed here:

Mr. Bear and I decided to spend our long-overdue honeymoon in the relaxed town of Rincon, Puerto Rico. We were pleasantly surprised by the owner of Casa Serena, who took the time to describe the town and property in advance to ensure it met our expectations. She also provided us with maps, a list of restaurants and the necessary instructions to ensure we had a great stay.

Upon arrival, we could not believe the true proximity of the house to the beach – literally steps from the backyard gate! The crashing waves could be heard through the large screened windows – a constant reminder that we were on vacation even when we were indoors!



We feasted on the ripe mangos from the tree in the backyard, swam in the relaxing warm waters, and went snorkeling at the nature reserve just on the other side of town. Rincon and its surrounding areas have a lot to offer, but having Casa Serena as our “den away from home” made all the difference in the enjoyment of our stay.



Located in a residential neighborhood, Casa Serena is ideal for the laid-back bear who wishes to embrace the authentic Puerto Rico experience. (This picture is the almond tree just outside the backyard gate.)

Two Glorious Weeks!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent two glorious weeks at Casa Serena and we were swept off our feet. Nancy, the owner, could not have been more helpful and concerned about our stay before we actually arrived and during our stay. We were supplied with a most comprehensive guide to Rincon and surrounding environs. Detailing everything from sightseeing, restaurants and grocery shopping. Additionally, a map of Rincon was provided and we felt we knew where we were going and what we wanted to do during our stay. Nancy was thoughtful enough to e-mail us after we arrived to make sure we did arrive safely. The house and its location on the beach went beyond our expectations! The kitchen was extremely well-equipped and unlike a few places we have stayed, the knives actually cut. There was a good supply of starter goods in both the kitchen and bathrooms. The mattress in the master bedroom is so comfortable and was a treat to retreat to every night! The living area outside the house is fantastic. There are more than enough chairs, lounges and hammocks to keep everyone in or out of the sun. Additionally, a wide variety of tubes, boogie boards, floats, masks, fins and snorkels ensure plenty of enjoyment. A wonderful touch was a cooler which we put to great use during our beach trips and long drives. The mango tree in the yard provided us with more than enough fruit for several mango smoothies. The beach is glorious and the relaxing sound of the ocean waves was wonderful. A suggestion for future visitors would be to add a pair of water shoes to their luggage. There are some flat rock formations that may hinder folks who may not be sure footed. We truly hope to return to Casa Serena in the near future and enjoy all the wonderful things that Casa Serena and Puerto Rico have to offer!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5
Casa Serena was the absolute perfect place for our vacation! My fiancé had visited Rincon before and knew he wanted to rent a beach house. We were so lucky to find such a great place! It was the perfect price at the peters location and just the right amount of space for the two of us! Nancy, the owner, was so great at responding quickly and providing a ton of information! We were able to find the house easily and loved all the amenities the house had to offer (nicely appointed bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, and water toys)! The house was in great condition and very clean! One of my favorite parts of the house is the deck area - we spent many evenings watching the sunset! I also loved that we were able to snorkel right in front of the house! The city of Rincon was spectacular and we had many adventures (caving, snorkeling, scuba diving, and hiking just to name a few)! We will definitely be back and are even considering honeymooning there!

Owner's Response: Dear Bobbie,

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Serena and appreciated all the efforts we make to provide everything we can think of to make our guests comfortable. I look forward to welcoming you back anytime. We have had a number of honeymoons at Casa Serena, including someone who works for Home Away (you can read their review on our listing) and all of these couples said that it was the perfect place for their honeymoon. So, if you choose to have yours here, we would be delighted! Thanks for choosing our home for your vacation and for writing such a glowing review for us.

Have a good winter,
Nancy Renee

Great location

  • 4 of 5
The Good - great location directly fronts a nice sandy, swimming and snorkeling beach. Nice patio and yard area. The rental has parking along with an alarm system and safe. The two rentals share a common washer and dryer between the complex. The patio is convenient, comfortable with a overhead fan to keep you cool. There is also an outdoor shower to wash sand and salt water off. If you desire you can safely walk to nearby stores, and restaurants. You are literally only a five minute drive to the center of town which has many shops.
The owner, Nancy is an outstanding hostess and goes out of her way to make sure you have knowledge about the area, the rental and nearby attractions. She contacted us before, during and after our stay for input.
The Bad - a little noisy in the evening hours for a while with some barking dogs. Also we were blessed with a mentally challenged Rooster who would crow in the middle of the night a couple of times in addition to his early morning wake up call.
Summary -- We enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this rental to others. If not for the noise issue we would give it five stars

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing your detailed review for us. We are very happy that you enjoyed your visit, our home, our beach and our location. I take great pride in our homes and care about the comfort of our guests, so I especially appreciate your comments about my efforts to do everything we can for our guests. Unfortunately, the dogs and roosters are a part of the culture in Puerto Rico and I have no control over that. I love your assessment that the rooster is mentally challenged, at least it made me laugh. Maybe I can try to teach him that he isn't supposed to crow till the morning! I will definitely talk to him. Thanks again for choosing our home for your vacation and we look forward to welcoming you back again.
Have a good winter,

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
Booked this place for our annual holiday trip because of the raving reviews we've read. I never imagined I'd join in raving how fantastic this place is. I usually don't give out reviews but this time, since my family really had a lovely vacation, it merits another rave from one of its very satisfied customers.
The house - clean, well-kept, fully-equipped, comfortable. The lovely porch, was one of our favorite places to hangout in the house.
The location - you have the beach right in front of your house! It couldn't get better than that! One of the best sounds to wake up to was those lapping ocean waves. And have I mentioned the spectacular sunset views the house treated us to?
It was really the best house for us, as we were looking to just relax and be at home, while on vacation. Other activities were also available for the members of the family who were more adventurous: kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, name it and the village seemed to have it. Will definitely be back in this village particularly this house.

This was my second time here within 8 months. There are no words to describe how wonderful this place is. Nancy is in constant contact until the arrival date. I bring my elderly parents and by the end of our vacation, they are renewed. The house is located in a perfect spot. The supermarket is walking distance as well as the restaurants. You can also drive on route 115 and run into the carts selling delicious inexpensive ethnic food. If you like seafood, you can buy octopus or conch in a cup. Walk on the beach which is literally steps away and you can go to the hotel and drink coconut water from a fresh coconut. There is also a mango tree right on the property and you can make smoothies, of course from a blender in the unit. If you want to relax with all the conviences and amenities this is the place. I can't imagine coming to Puerto Rico and not staying here. This place gets gooderer and gooderer.

The best vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5
This vacation house was so great because it was a beautiful, comfortable house to stay in, but mainly because of its AMAZING LOCATION ON THE BEACH!!! We woke up to the sound of wakes splashing on shore and went to sleep watching the sunsets from the front porch. I also have to say that the owner took really good care of us by making sure we always had everything we needed during our stay. I would love to go back there. I miss it so much already.
