Rincon, The Town Center Plaza and Area: Rincon means 'Corner' or 'Niche' in Spanish and is a perfect description of our location in the northwest corner of Puerto Rico, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea. Rincon remains part of the 'Undiscovered Caribbean' and has been Puerto Rico's favorite vacation destination for years! It's unique location creates some of the best surfing waves in the world when the currents collide from October to April but also has many beaches for those who prefer calm glass like waters for swimming and snorkeling.

There is no 'resort strip' in Rincon and visitors are just another part of life in paradise. Although Rincon is a small town, it boasts several different personalities depending on the area of town you explore. You'll enjoy the activity of intimate beaches and spectacular sunsets. Downtown Rincon has a traditional plaza with bakeries and restaurants.

Perfection!

We were and are in love with Casa Marina it has the perfect space, not noisy at all, it had all the amenities and more! We really enjoy out time here. Rincon is the perfect getaway spot and casa marina made it even better, clean, big, comfy and the pool was the cherry on top. Jonai was very hepful, thank you. We are checking the calendar to book it again. The beach was a short way away from the house and That beach area is perfect for children and paddle board. Oh and the house is full of palms and green areas. Frances T.

An amazing time!

I started my search to find the perfect accommodations to have a family vacation. My husband and I had been to Rincon twice before and love it there. During my search I found many rentals, but it wasn't until I found Casa Marina, before I stopped looking. I fell in love with the location and the comfort and tasteful decorations of this home. My family consisted of 6 adults and a 2-year old. We loved the pool, the beach, the restaurants within walking distance, the warm people and watching the sun sets from the deck on the roof. Our plan is to return next year! StClair

Clean, Comfortable, Great Location!

This home was very comfortable for a 4 generation family vacation. Many amenities were provided, such as pool floats, beach towels and even high chairs. The home was clean and there was hot water and good water pressure, which can be a rarity in PR. A few things that were not perfect, was the air conditioning was loud and dripped above the back patio door. There was manhole cover on the side street that was loud when cars went over it. A concern was with the code provided for the front door - not sure this is changed with each visitor. Other than those items, we found this property very nice and would recommend it to others and would stay here again.

Winter Break

We just got home and it's snowing outside. I miss Rincon already. I especially miss the house. It was perfect and every night wether we ate in or out we walked right down the block for a drink/pool at Joe's. Each morning was spent lazily starting our day with coffee around poolside. I read some reviews before we came and heard about it being noisy. Well there was some noise during

the day, radios blasting from cars but I found it added to the local flavor. I wouldn't want it to change. This is a highly recommended place if you want to live simply within your own touch of paradise. Cathy S.

Great Get Away!

the house is amazing we had a great time. A walk to the beach and easy to get to. The pool area is spacious and plenty of parking. Joanne T.

The House was Great and as Advertised

We loved the house and Rincon. It worked perfectly for us , it was clean, new and had everything we needed. The location was great with an easy walk to the beach. We went on a snorkel trip with the dive shop at the end of the road (near the beach) and that was the highlight of the trip for all of us.

We would definitely stay there again and not hesitate to recommend it. Dave

Spacious, Comfortable and Near the Action

Our family of six really enjoyed the comfort and luxury of this house. The interior is spacious and there are lots of rooms and decks to retreat to when you need a break from being a family unit. The pool is refreshing. The property is large and beautifully landscaped. Watching the sunset from the rooftop deck in the evenings was spectacular. Close to the house is the beach and lots of water sports to take advantage of in both directions. Neighborhood bars and restaurants are also close. We cooked dinner at home almost every night, so can't say we frequented the local establishments too much. The house is on a busy street so the master and twin bed room get street noise at night. But, each room has its own AC unit and ceiling fan so that helps dull the outside noises. We all loved the house and our time in Rincon and would definitely recommend this property to families that want a fun filled and comfortable vacation. Rosemary D.

Comfortable Stay - Awesome Pool

The property was as listed, we got quite a bit of use of the pool and outside lounge areas. The house had plenty of room for 4 couples; we were not stepping over ourselves and truly had the opportunity to relax. We got a little turned around when trying to reach the house at night but I called the property manager and she stayed on the line with me until we reached the home. She even waited to make sure that we opened the gate to drive our cars into the garage. Excellent customer service. Every morning we went to the bakery in the town square - excellent food and you can't beat the prices. I would definitely recommend this property! Roberta O.

This place was fantastic!

The home was incredible! Spacious, well maintained with high end finishes. At end of the street best swimming beach in Rincon! Keep in mind most beaches difficult for swimming as reef lines the shore everywhere. Great surfing within a short drive, Domes is 3 min drive and North Shore about 45 min. Only knock is that property is on busy road and you will hear cars zipping by with loud Latino hip/hop at all hours and the site next door is currently under construction. These things were only a minor annoyance that is why I still gave the place 5 stars. Home is really, really nice! Third floor balcony has beautiful water views and surfing around here is really fun. When I come back I will stay here again. Also, we had two families with us with kids under 2 years and it was perfect for us. John M.

A Very Comfortable Home in a Great Location.

We were two families, 4 adults and 4 children, that stayed at the Casa Marina last week. The house is everything you think it is when you look at the pictures and description. We enjoyed the house as soon as we arrived. The layout of the house gave us privacy when one of needed it. The pool may be small, but we had so much fun in it. Location is perfect, snorkeling, para sailing, swimming, great restaurants are all just a short walk away. Grocery store and surfing are but a quick drive. The little things like having the laundry room and a garage just made easier. The beds are very comfortable. The rooms are private and have their own temperature control.

Thanks John.

Sincerely, Dave L

Excellent and Would Book Again

One of our best vacations yet. We flew into San Juan and the drive was about 2 hours but nothing too bad.

This house was awesome. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the property was very clean and well maintained. The location near the beach is perfect and within walking distance to several great places to hang out and grab some food.

Grocery stores are a few mile drive but other than stocking up on supplies, we really never had to leave the property.

The beach at the end of the street was nice and the water was crystal clear. There's a smooth rock ledge when you first enter the water and it extends out about 20 feet or so and then drops off a couple of feet so not good for catching any waves but great for swimming and snorkeling.

The snorkeling at the beach and right around the corner was great and we never really had to venture much farther.

The house, with it's great backyard and pool were very private and comfortable to just hang around at and we enjoyed plenty of time just sitting by the pool before we headed to the beach.

AC at the house worked great and we were always comfortable. 3rd floor balcony was nice but we never really used it that much.

Overall a great place that we felt very safe and comfortable at and would love to go again but maybe next time fly into the closer airport and save the hassle of the drive back to San Juan. Mark H

Wonderful Place!

We are from the eastern part of the island of Puerto Rico and our family for a long time did not take a vacation together. We decided to look for a cozy place where to stay together and enjoy a few days of relaxation for adults and fun for children and found the perfect place in this house.

This house, in addition to beautiful, modern, spacious and well located, is fully equipped with everything you need for a stay away from home, you just have to bring food and clothing. The pool area is perfect for spending the day and night, all rooms have their air conditioning, also the area of the living/dining room and kitchen (this did not use as much since fresh air coming in), very clean and organized . The owner was always available for any questions that arise. The system code for the entrance gate and the door was excellent, we do not need keys when entering and exiting. The day we arrived we just put in the code and were in, do not need anyone to wait on us or we wait for anyone, great!

Definitely recommend this place to vacation with family and friends! Maria R.

Great Place!

This is a very nice house, well taken care of. We spent about a week there and had everything we needed and more. It is a few minutes walking distance from the beach and a few minutes more walking (or driving) from the town's balneario (with showers, parking, ...) The terrace and the pool are amazing. You really can pack light since they have a washer and dryer which we used every day (only downside is that the laundry room gets SUPER HOT when in use, but you can just close the door and open the window to minimize the heat coming inside). I definitively recommend this place and hope to stay there again on our next trip!

Additional pros: they have a play yard and a high chair. It made things easier for us with two babies. Miraida M.

Amazing House Close to Everything!!

This house was absolutely beautiful! We had a group of five guys all in our mid 20's looking to get away to a tropical paradise and that's what we found. The house was in a perfect location. At the very end of the street there is this cove that you can swim in that is protected by rocks and has a sand bottom. Most of the places around the Rincon area have rock/reef bottoms and arnt good for casual swimming so take advantage of this place. The house is also 1.6 miles away from Maria's surf spot and Domes and at the end of the street where the house sits on is a popular and amazing restaurant called Shipwrecks. You have to visit this place for dinner at least one night and there is another new restaurant that just opened that sits right on the ocean with a killer view and good food as well. The grocery store is very close as well and also several bars and night clubs to experience the night life. We went to this place called Tamboo that was a really good time and was populated with a lot of Americans. I noticed some people complain about the condos that recently were built right next to the houses property but the house is so tall that on the third floor where you have your hang out porch area you can see the ocean and sunset with no problem. They are also building a hotel across the street so there might be some construction going on in the next few months to a year. When we were there they were in the first stages of leveling dirt and clearing out debre but never had an impact on our stay. Anyways If you stay in the house during the day anyways you are missing out on what Rincon has to offer. We traveled to a local waterfall called Gozalandia in San Sebastián that took 45 minutes to drive to but is to die for! The house does not have central AC but every room has an AC unit that works very well.

I could of not been happier with this property and recommend it to anyone interested in staying here. We got lost for a few minutes finding the house but the property manager was able to stay on the phone with me and direct us straight to the house. Brunkie
