Spacious Beachfront Villa - 2 units of 3 bedrooms each

3 bed, 3 bath Rincon home sleeps 6-14



" We have just returned from a great week in Rincon. Casa Tamara was exactly what we were looking for and exactly as described. We were looking for a quiet week in a comfortable house only steps from the beach and that is just what we found. Perfect. The house was comfortable, spacious, well equipped and could not have been better located. Rincon is low key and funky. In short. Great weather. Great location. Great house. Great week.

"Dear Nancy, Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed Casa Tamara. It was the perfect setting for our dream vacation. Everything in the apartment was more than adequate - so clean, spacious, and nicely furnished. We had everything we needed - plus! We will never forget the view, pounding surf, coquies and tropical landscape. What a beautiful island. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our two week stay. Thank you so much for everything. It was a 5 star experience! It was a pleasure working with you on reservations et al and please tell Gladys "Thank You" also. She was so helpful and nice! Sincerely, Richard and Mary Mcilroy " - Richard & Mary McIlroy, Iowa Park Tx. U.S.A., 11/05/09 (inquire/book)

"Casa Tamara was a real island paradise! It was incredibly spacious, comfortable, private, and right on the beach! The villa came equipped with everything one may need when traveling, it a fabulous location for a beach and for going out, and the owner is incredibly sweet, helpful, and responsive to whatever questions one may have." - Anonymous, 09/01/09 (inquire/book)

"Nancy, We had an excellent stay at Casa Tamara. The accomadations were great and the beach was literally "right there". This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and we throughly enjoyed it. We explored the rain forest, went to the caves, kayaked the bio bay, and snorkled Steps Beach. But the best part was the down time spent right at our own beach. The natives are extremely friendly although they drive worst than Bostonians which I didn't believe possibly !! Rincon is a great place and Casa Tamara a gem for a nice family vacation. We will be back Greg" - Greg, Westwood, MA, 08/28/09 (inquire/book)

"We stayed for a week at the Casa Tamara, on the bottom floor. It was ideal for our group of four adults and three teenage kids. Well-furnished, right on the beach and very convenient. No problem with noise from the guests on the top floor." - Tom and Monica, 08/16/09 (inquire/book)

"We recently rented Casa Tamara from Jul 21 - Aug 1, 2009. Since this was our very first long term visit to Rincon, we opted not to stay at one of the local hotels but rather experience Rincon's way of life through the eyes of local residents. This said, as any visitor to a new place there is some trepidation as to where exactly we should 'call home' for a two week period. Thank god for the internet. After doing some searches - we came across some very positive reviews for the Casa Tamara. Of specific note was the fact that the person we would be dealing with was the owner of the property and more so the property had been in her family for many many years. This told us a few things, First, there must be something special about Rincon. Second, despite the big real estate bubble the owner retained ownership thus ensuring that the property would be well maintained and enhanced for the comfort of future guests. Our assumptions proved to be correct when we saw that it was evident throughout the inside and outside of the property that there truly existed a pride in ownership. From the decor. to the quality of all the fixtures and accessories we could see that Nancy was maintaining the property to a high standard suitable as if she herself would be living there year-round. We also found Nancy always accessible to answer any questions - not only about the property but about Rincon and the Porta del Sol area of PR. My wife and I have travelled many places around the Caribbean and abroad but I must say with all honesty the attention we received from Nancy was second to none. She answered every question we had. Provided some useful tips. And after many of our conversations we genuinely felt that we were conversing not with a stranger but a family member who had our best interest at heart and who was opening her home for us to stay with. As soon as you step foot onto the property, looked out over the terrace, and saw the palm trees, the golden beach sand, the turquoise blue Caribbean , and Despecho Island at a distance we were mesmerized and captivated. Not only are the views gorgeous (and wait until you see the sunsets) but it is literally in your backyard. Breathtaking to say the least... Inside you will find all the conveniences of home. A kitchen with all the necessary appliances and utensils. A comfortable living room. Large bedrooms and clean bathrooms. You can't go wrong in choosing Casa Tamara. Enjoy..." - Carlos R, 08/03/09 (inquire/book)

"Have stayed twice at Casa Tamara and love it. It is situated right on the beach and in a lovely area. Wish we could spend more time there. There is room for large families, which we took advantage of two years ago by renting the entire house. The view of the water is supreme!" - Darlene, Yalesville, CT, 04/08/09 (inquire/book)

"We love Rincon and we love Casa Tamara. This is our 15th year at the house and we've increased our time from one week the first year to three weeks over the last several years. We hope to stay longer next year. The house is right on a beautiful stretch of beach with a lovely, partly shaded front lawn. There are a few trees on the beach for shade. The water in front of the house is sometimes calm and sometimes has waves. For a totally calm Caribbean beach one can go 10 minutes south to Anasco and swim at the beautiful beach there. For heavy surf, one can go 10 minutes north to the surfing beach (we love to go and watch even though we don't surf). The house itself is two stories and we've loved both floors for different reasons. When our grandchildren were young (they come with us every year with their parents and they say it is one of their best weeks of the year) the downstairs was more convenient. Now that they are teenagers, we all love the view of the nightly sunsets from the upstairs porch. The porches on both floors are large with room for a table and chairs and several lounges. We spend alot of our time on the porch when we are not down at the beach. There is a large open living room, dining area and kitchen area and three large bedrooms. The downstairs has 3 bathrooms and the upstairs has only 2 bathrooms. The house is fully equipped and there is a grill on the porch. I do quite alot of cooking and there is good shopping available. There are also several lovely restaurants with good food nearby. It is a very informal community and shorts are fine at any restaurant (except the upscale "Horned Dorset"). Gladys, who manages the house, is fabulous and very responsive to any needs or requests. Her husband Hector is great at fixing things when needed. And, Nancy, who owns the house, has always been terrific in responding to suggestions. The house is situated in a community of homes owned largely by Puerto Ricans. Neighbors are warm and welcoming. On the porch, one only hears the sounds of the surf but in the back of the house you at times hear the neighborhood sounds of roosters or weekend salsa. All in all this is a great house in a great area with a magnificent beach right in front of you. " - Vivian, Brooklyn N.Y., 03/04/09 (inquire/book)

"For your Guest Book: Casa Tamara is your home away from home. The only thing that sets it apart is that your backyard is the ocean! The house was neat well kept and the beachfront was awesome. This house is a great place to stay for a great time in Puerto Rico. The bedrooms were air-conditioned and the extra bathrooms are the best for the family. It is close to the major roads and away from the headaches of the major cities. Everything is within a short distance, from food to stores to gas. A place that was enjoyed and loved and it is true, you DO NOT want to leave and looking forward for next year to come again! Thanks, Eddie " - Eddie, Chicago, Il, 03/03/09 (inquire/book)

" Dear Nancy, I apologize for not writing sooner, but my schedule upon return from vacation has been very hectic. As a matter of fact, it has only been the recollection of your beautiful home, the white sand beaches of Rincon and the magnificent vistas from the hills above which have kept work from being totally unbearable. All agreed that our stay in Puerto Rico was everything we had hoped. The group, to a person, was thrilled upon arrival at your home. Never having stayed there before, I was conservative in my representations to the other travelers about our accommodations (although I was secretly confident that we had stumbled upon a gem). It was therefore wonderful for me to see the wide-eyed looks of amazement cross the faces of my comrades as we walked up the stairs of your home, into the spacious living-room, and out onto the balcony which beckoned us to come for a view of the turquoise Caribbean Sea. With your home as a convenient base, we surfed, fished, snorkeled, golfed, swam and dined out with pleasure for our entire stay, all the while fascinated to be in the middle of culture so different from our own, yet so inviting. We rode giant waves at some of Rincon’s legendary surfing beaches, including Domes, Maria’s and Dog Man’s to name a few, and enjoyed going up to El Coqie for lunch and billiards after a tiring surf session. We also had a day out fishing and were able to bring home Grouper and Barracuda for dinner. Despite the many stories which would accompany us home, our departure was truly heartbreaking. We thank you for your trust as we made arrangements, your helpful recommendations and particularly for your hospitality as your presence could be felt through the many personal touches which live in your home for all to enjoy. Best regards, and I look forward to the possibility of staying at your home again next year. Sincerely, A.H. " - A.H., Denver, Co, 03/03/09 (inquire/book)

"THE HOUSE WAS ABOSOLUTLY MAGICAL!! WE COULD NOT NOT HAVE WISHED FOR ANYTHING BETTER. Keep it the way it is, we'll definatly be back at some point. Thanks for letting us stay in your home, Take Care, Diane and Daniel. " - Diane and Daniel, San Francisco, CA, 03/03/09 (inquire/book)

"Hello Nancy, I cannot thank you enough for extending Casa Tamara to us. My family and me have been visiting Puerto Rico for the past three years and by far your place has been the best vacation stay. We loved the house. It was very welcoming. Our neighbors were very nice people. We felt as if we were in our own home. I have been telling my relatives and friends about your place and even sent them your website so that they can see it for themselves. We hope to go back to Puerto Rico. If we do in the near future, I will definately contact you. Thanks again, Liz Gomez " - Elizabeth Gomez, Staten Island, NY, 02/23/09 (inquire/book)
