What Past Guests Are Saying
St. Louis, MO
Exactly as we expected, plus some little extras!
Elier, the house manager, met us at Hwy 413 and led us down to the house (a must for 1st timers, Thanks Elier!). We stayed in the smaller 1st floor apt. It had plenty of room for 2 people and our stuff. What we appreciated most: very clean, comfortable bed, a/c, good shower, full size fridge w freezer, great outdoor areas, beach chairs, washer/dryer. We had a very pleasant stay. It is very quiet this time of year except for the sounds of the Coqui and the waves breaking on Sandy beach.
Steamboat Springs, Colorado
Casa Bianca was a great place to stay for the price. We found the listing on Vrbo a week before we left. The owners do a great job of replying promptly-- this was huge for us and we noticed that many listings are not managed this well.
Elier, the property manager, was fantastic. He met us promptly when we arrived. Plan on taking a phone with you, as he needs you to call when you get there. This would have been an issue if we did not have a global phone. iPhones work fine, but make sure to call ahead and let your company know they need to enable it.
The apartment we stayed in was the bottom level. We were the only people staying in the building, which we were really thankful for. There is a street that runs up on the side of the hill by the house. The road is extremely steep and cars driving up and down were very, very loud. The windows of Casa Bianca do not have glass on them, so keeping noise out was kind of hard. However, the coqui frogs drown out a lot of the noise.
Because the driveway comes up by the lower apartment, we were really happy not to be fighting with that noise as well.
The upstairs patio on the roof was gorgeous for sunsets.We loved having dinner at the apartment and loved the lush, green plants growing all around. One afternoon, it got very windy and the bananas on the tree outside the windows blew down. We were so thrilled to be able to munch on those.
Aside from the noise, the only other small issue was the futon bed, which was a bit different than normal. It is two halves of a mattress, as opposed to one that folds in the middle. Essentially, this just means you have to sleep on one of the two halves or you will be in a large crease in the middle.
Overall, we loved Casa Bianca. For the price, we thought it was very reasonable and once we figured out how to sleep through the traffic, we had a lovely time.
And for anyone who is wondering, the beach is a block away... very close!
Satellite Beach, Florida
apartment "A" in May 2013
My husband and I stayed in apartment a in May, and it was absolutely perfect. The location is great. Close enough to the beach to step out the door and walk across the street, but far enough away to be private. The kitchen has everything you need to cook if you want, or bring your leftovers home as there are several restaurants close by. No daily maid service, but clean towels, sheets,soap, etc are provided.
The room ac in the bedroom is quiet and cool and the bed was comfortable. The flat screen tv is very small, and the futon sofa was good for sitting, but not so great as a bed. We didn't do much lounging in front of the tv, so that wasn't a big deal.
Brooklyn, New York
Best Rental Ever
Our friend arrived the night before our rental (error in booking) and Elier answered his phone and made a special trip to unlock the doors for him. The apartment was so spacious, clean and all the ammenties once could ask for and then some. Loved the balconies and the rooftop deck. Just a quick walk to the beach and a few restaurants and morning yoga class. The outside shower was great for rinsing off our feet, surfboards, snorkeling equipment, etc. It was a bit noisy late at night into early morning from neighbors partying but hopefully they were just a temporary rental. We also made friends with the guests in the apartment below which was great...never wanted to leave and thinking of a repeat, yet longer trip, next year! Also, Christine the owner is prompt, friendly, helpful and professional in all aspects of arranging this vacation.
A great place for a wonderful week
My wife and I rented Casa Bianca for the week of March 3-9, 2013 we had all three apartments for our three children and their spouses and our granddaughter, a total of nine. We had a grand time, Casa Bianca was just a fantastic place to stay, with a great view of the ocean, privacy and good location. We really enjoyed our Stay in Casa Bianca and Rincon. Rincon is a surfing and beach area, and even though we do not surf are lay on the beach we had a really good time. If you are looking for a nice villa I highly recommend Casa Bianca.
Another great year at Casa Bianca!
This is our second time staying at Casa Bianca, and it won't be our last! This year my husband and I stayed in apartment a and it was great! It was such a quiet yet central location to everything we love in Rincon. It was walking distance to a handful of restaurants (Tamboo, Casa Verde, Pools, Casa Islena) and bars and of course our favorite Sandys beach is right across the street! We had the pleasure of meeting the owners Walter and Christine for the first time and they were so nice and great hosts. We will absolutely book Casa Bianca in the future and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice relaxing vacation home in beautiful Rincon!
I just spent a week at Casa Bianca with my wife and two friends. The location is amazing (~ 100 yards from the beach and two or three nice dinner/bar options) and the house is very comfortable. Walter and Christine (the owners) were there for the full week and were wonderfully gracious, helpful, and responsive to any needs that we had. One of the things we enjoyed most about CB was the beautiful rooftop terrace that provided very private sunbathing, beautiful ocean views, and amazing moonlit dining opportunities. Overall, Casa Bianca was one of the best vacation rental values I have ever enjoyed.
An awesome winter-week in Rincon at Casa Bianca!
My wife and I rented the 2nd story 2BR/2Ba unit of Casa Bianca for a week. (In fact, we just left yesterday--2/19/13). We took another couple with us, and we had a fantastic experience. The owners happened to be there in the upstairs unit, and they were as friendly and helpful as they could have possibly been--suggesting surf spots and pointing us toward alternative activities (like hiking and snorkeling, with advice on where to go) when the surf flattened out for a couple days.
The location was beautiful, and the accomodations were spacious and comfortable. Everything was either a walk or a short drive away--depending on what we were up to.
Their manager (Eliar--spelling?) answered the phone when we got close, gave us directions to the house, and was there to meet us when we arrived.
Bottom-line the trip was seamless. And I would recommend this rental highly. (I just hope it is available when we get a chance to go back--which we will definitely be doing!)
Great hospitality and clean, comfy laid-back atmosphere. Perfect
We were lucky enough to be there while Walter and Christine, the owners, were also there. They were especially helpful, kind and informative. They toured us around and made life there generally better! We got the inside scoop on where to swim, snorkel, dine, etc. It was great! The house itself (we stayed in apt a) was clean, cozy, just right for our needs. It a very short walk to the ocean and some good places to eat and drink. Just sitting on the lower patio and the upper roof deck were worth the trip. Definitely a place to come back to, again and again!
Awesome location near sandy beach
My husband and I recently stayed at Casa Bianca for a weekend getaway. It may be somewhat difficult to get there if you are not familiar with area but the property manager Elier, is accesible through the phone, dilgent and very helpful. At out arrival the garden was well taken care of and everthying we could possibly need was available for us in the apartment, including toiletries which was nice. The apartment was clean, comfortable and all appliances worked properly. Linens and towels were provided as well. It included wi-fi, cable and even a set of dvd's is available if you desire to watch a movie. The property has its own parking space and is just a few steps away from a popular local beach bar, The Tamboo. We will highly recommend Casa Bianca and hope to return soon to this peaceful paradise in Rincon.
Clear Lake, Houston, Texas
Very lush and tropical
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in the first floor apt at Casa Bianca. Sitting at the table out front having coffee was wondering. It's very lush and tropical with palms, gingers, and an assortment of plant life as well as the little frogs that sing to you. The apt was furnished very comfortably and there was always plenty of hot water for showers. It's a short walk down to Sandy Beach, but it was nothing. We had a wonderful time and I hope to stay there again.
Great time in appt a
My son and I stayed in appt a for 3 nights. It was great. Nice to have a full, furnished kitchen and room to spread out. Much better than just a hotel room! And one block from the beach. We could hear the Coqui singing and waves crashing all night. Lots of nearby restaurants, surf shops, etc.. Great location. Internet worked great - my 14 year old was very appreciative!
I was impressed that they had bathroom toiletries for us - tooth paste, soap, etc.. and some sunscreen! New roll of paper-towels and a new sponge in the kitchen - several little things like that made the stay really nice.
Having Elier meet us to open the house and show us around was very pleasant. He seemed like the kind of guy you could call if you had any trouble are needed something. It was kind of nice to have a local person to call if you needed it!
Conveniently located, cosy and stunning views from roof terrace.
. I had an excellent, relaxing and pleasant stay at Casa Bianca.

Comfortable, spacious, clean modern apt close to beach,shopping and eating places,and surrounded by beautiful tropical plants.
Beautiful, clean, great location!
Our stay at Casa Bianca was awesome! The view from the roof deck is amazing and only a short walk to Tamboo and the beach! The apartment was very clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again!
Surfers rental in Paradise
My sons and I had a lovely 4 day stay at Casa Bianca. This is the second time we've stayed there. If you like surfing, Rincon is a dream in the Caribbean. Our favorite surfing beach in Rincon is Sandy Beach, and Casa Bianca is 1 block from the beach. Great apartments with full kitchen,ours had a great view of the ocean, and good restaurants within walking distance. We'll be back!
Casa Bianca Es Su Casa in Puerto Rico!
Looking for an affordable and relaxing place to stay in Puerto Rico? Casa Bianca is your home away from home when visiting this beautiful tropical isle in the Caribbean!
We stayed in apartment a, which was perfect for the two of us, fully equipped with everything we needed to relax and have a perfect week away from it all.
What makes Casa Bianca so much better than a resort hotel is the face that you can prepare some meals at home if you wish - we like to be able to have Looong,leisurely breakfasts in the morning, where you don't need to hail the waiter for that second and third cup of coffee. But,CB is also centrally located in the scenic but super-chill beach/surfer town of Rincon. There are great beaches and restaurants both within walking distance and others just minutes away by car.
The bar/restaurant Tamboo, right across the street, makes for a great place to grab a quick meal or kick-start your Happy Hour. Plus, it overlooks Sandy Beach, where you can drag out the cooler, read, surf and swim to your heart's content!
Don't miss the roof-top deck on Casa Bianca, which is great for moonlit nights or a roof-top picnic with beautiful views.
Families will appreciate the washer/dryer in the back and safety of the location, set back from the main street.
What are you waiting for? Get down there!
beacon falls, Ct
I felt like I was home and didn't want to leave!
I soon as we got there we met the owners Christine and Walter and they couldn't have been nicer or more helpfull. We ( my girlfriend and I ) Stayed on the bottem floor which is the smallest of the three levels but was more then enough space for the two of us. Casa Bianca is located in a prime centroll location! Just a short walk ( about a football field ) and your at Sandy Beach. Also we were just walking distance to to four or five nice places to eat drink and hear live music! For anyone who loves being near the beach loves good food I recommend Casa Bianca! The people of Rincon are some of the nicest people I've ever met!
Beacon Falls, CT
Perfect place to stay in Rincon - Christine and Walter make the
Perfect location, clean, comfortable, affordable, beautiful roof top view and more. Christine and Walter Bridges, the owners, helped us feel at home and also helped us get to know the area. It was our first trip to Rincon and when we come back we will stay at Casa Bianca for years to come.
A great home base for our vacation - welcoming, friendly, conven
When we arrived we were welcomed by friendly staff and given a personal introduction to the area, with great recommendations about where to go, things to see and do, etc. The owners also happened to be staying in one of the apartments and they went out of their way to introduce themselves and make sure we felt comfortable and if we needed anything to just let them know. It's a very friendly place!
We stayed in apartment B which was clean, comfortable, and cozy. It's not a luxury apartment but we didn't expect it to be, and it has all the amenities you would need, including high-speed wifi, DVD (with a wide selection of house movies to watch), Satellite TV with all the channels, and stereo system with iPod dock, and of course all the normal amenities.
The rooms were very comfortable and have new a/C units - even though we found the ceiling fans to be perfectly adequate during our stay. The beds and linens and decorations are all very nice.
The one downside was the noise at night from local bars nearby, but this is an issue no matter where you stay along the North Coast of Rincon. Live bands and music from local bars carries on until midnight or even longer most nights. Bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper!
Rincon was the perfect destination for us as there was a great mix of surfing and calmer beaches to swim or sunbathe at, and plenty of other things to do too! If I were to go back, I'd stay at Casa Bianca again. It was the perfect home base for us!
A Lovely apartment in Rincon
We truly enjoyed out stay at Casa Bianca. The apartment is half a block from the shore, and is well equipped and maintained. We stayed in the middle apartment. There is also a roof top common area. The only drawback is the music from area venues can be loud and go on until midnight.
Atlantic City, New Jersey
We had a wondeful experience
This is the second time we have stayed at Casa Bianca. This time my family rented the top floor, my brother-in-law rented the second floor and my mother-in-law rented the bottom floor. The rooms are very comfortable and well maintained. The views from the roof top deck are beautiful. With the beach about 200 yards away and a local bar right there, the location was perfect. I would highly recommend this.
Clean, comfortable and across the street from the beach...
Casa Bianca is a beautiful home that is clean, comfortable and across the street from a great beach all for a very reasonable price. The owners were very friendly and helpful with local recommendations. We will definitely be back...
Just returned from a four-night stay at Casa Bianca. A group of us--three families--booked all three apartments so had the whole place to ourselves. Plenty of space for both group and private time, fully equipped kitchens, the futons were great to add additional sleeping space. The rooftop was our favorite location. Beautiful breezes, ocean sounds and sights...I miss it already!
Huntingdon Valley, Pa
We stayed in unit a. It is a delightful apartment with plenty of space for a couple. Very close to a nice uncrowded beach, although we *were* there near the end of high season. Christine is really on top of things--the booking and arrival went very smoothly. We were there for three days after a week in the mountains but are already thinking of a longer return in the future to spend more time in this ocean area. Elier, the house manager, is very attentive. Thanks, Christine, for a great stay and very prompt return of the security deposit!
Casa Bianca is a lovely 3 apartment unit in Rincon, PR. We rented unit C, which is the top unit. On apt C deck, we were able to view the ocean through the palm trees and enjoy the ocean breeze. The unit was clean, comfortable, and nicely furnished. We would definitely like to return Casa Bianca.
Short but pleasant stay!
First and foremost,Christine and Mr. Lopez were easy to contact and responded promptly to any needs/concerns that we had as guests. The accomodation was clean and secure. Also, the privacy that we had (Apt. A) was satisfactory.
Casa Bianca's location was conveniently located within walking distance of a beautiful beach front, entertainment of a couple of restaurants/bars, and a small convenience store. The nearby driving distance to some ripping surf and amusement in downtown Rincon was key to our stay; and the accomodation's surrounding natural sites were a pleasure to see.
Of course, a beach front location would have been the ultimate pleasue; but Casa Bianca holds its pride modestly in this respect and is still only about a minute walk down a small hill to this amenity.
The perfect place for a family reunion
We loved the Casa Bianca. I and 14 members of my family stayed there. We took all 3 apartments and were all very comfortable. The apartments were spacious. The kitchens well furnished with utensils and such. The location was easy walking to the beach for young and old. The neighborhood was safe for the kids to wander. There was an excellent restaurant half a block from the apartments (ocean front). All in all, we had a wonderful time and would recommend the Casa Bianca to anyone.
Fun and relaxing
Casa Bianca was the perfect location in Rincon. Very near (a few steps) from the a beautiful beach with a nice little rocky break for surfers. There are restaurants and places to rent surfboards, etc. within walking distance. The caretaker of the house, Mr. Lopez and the owners are very helpful and go way beyond the call of duty to make the stay enjoyable. It is a beautiful house and very reasonably priced. Thank you for the wonderful experience!
Sally and Andy
Great accommodations and service. We arrived at 4:00am and Elier was there to meet us. The apartment was spotless and well stocked with linens. Incredible location just steps from the beach and surrounded by local flora and fauna. The owners were very friendly and helpful. It was easy to get around the town and visit other cities.
We booked Casa Bianca for our first anniversary-we live in Boston and right after the holidays when there is a ton of snow is usually when you are itching to get out of town. We arrived in Rincon a little early but we called the house manager Elier to see if we could check in-he said no problem and would be over to the apartment in about 10 minutes. Since we had been in the car for a couple of hours (flew into to San Juan) we decided to check out a beach/surf shop around the corner from our apartment while waiting for the property manager. When we came back from the shop we saw a couple at the end of the driveway who introduced themselves as the owners of Casa Bianca-Christine and Walter. They were so nice-gave us information about the area asked if we needed anything. Not in anyway overbearing or annoying just really helpful in making sure we were settled. We ended up staying in apartment a which was more the enough room for two people. The apartment is literally a 30 second walk to the beach-it was amazing. There are also a handful of restaurants/bars within walking distance which was nice. On the night of our actual anniversary I had a little too much to drink and lost my bank card and id. Christine and Walter were more then helpful in letting me use their PO box so I could have my passport overnighted. Thankfully a nice couple from Rincon found my id and bank card and it was returned to me the next night. All in all our vacation was fantastic-we will definitely be back next year to Casa Bianca hopefully with friends and family in tow! It was a great trip and Christine and Walter were great hosts!!!
New Bedford, MA
Like owning a beach house, without the cons of it.
It's like having a beach house without having to maintain it. Very quiet, clean, confortable, efficient and pleasant. The location is awesome both for surfers, beach goers and bars/restaurants fans. Both owner and local manager were very professional and friendly at the same time. The manager is an extremely nice person and perfectly pointed us out to the best places to go. Not even a minor weakness to speak of. Just perfect. Absolutely recommended. I'm looking forward to come back soon and will do all the effort to stay in this same place.
Casa Bianca was perfect for us!
We could not have asked for better accomodations for our surfing trip to Rincon. As graduate students, the 4 of us were traveling on a pretty tight budget and, after a ton of searching, Casa Bianca was by far the best deal we found. The location was perfect. walking distance to three great breaks and a short drive (literally 5 min) to 5 others. We even made it to Isabella and aguadilla (only 40min and 30min by car respectively). We stayed in apt B. it had everything we needed and more. clean, well equipt and a kitchen with everything we needed to make dinner every night. The on-site manager, Elier was fantastic. He had no problem meeting us at 5am when we arived and came over at 9pm one night to help us switch the gas tank to the stove. He even gave us advice about where to go to catch the best waves. For us Casa Bianca was perfect. Best price, best location, we couldn't have asked for anything better. Next surfing trip to PR we wont have to figure out where to stay, we'll be coming back to Casa Bianca!
Tropical Paradise - Simplified
Casa Bianca is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience a real slice of Puerto Rico. You'll feel like a local and have all the necessary comforts,including wifi. The location in the tiny village of Puntas is great. With locals mostly from the mainland, you will not even need your high school Spanish. Walk (or surf!) the rustic beaches in search of calm waters for a swim. Visit Rincon and beyond along the Porta del Sol for more real island vibe. Start every morning listening to the waves crashing outside while you sip a cup of local coffee. Return to the Casa each evening to relax on the balcony and cook dinner, or visit one of the (walking distance) restaurants and bars. The owner of this property gives you pinpoint perfect directions to find this place and makes sure that you are well looked after from arrival on. It's tropical paradise on your own terms - not a lot of people and no big resort to deal with. After a day we felt like we lived here. After a few more, we wished we did!
Ryan & Tricia
Excellent vacation spot!
Upon entering the Casa Bianca we were struck with how welcoming it was. The place was clean, comfortable, and had little added pleasures like water & a whole selections of movies to watch. The TV and internet were great and the place is in walking distance to beautiful beaches and happening nightspots. The roof deck is amazing & the people were nice and easy to deal with. We would definitely stay here again.
Mackie and Crumbs
LOVED Casa Bianca-Perfect Location!
My husband and I stayed in the one bedroom rental at Casa Bianca for 5 nights. The location was perfect, steps from the beach but far enough off the main road to have privacy. The rental was very clean and plenty big for 2 people, could easily sleep 4. We fell asleep to the sound of the Coqui frogs and woke up to the sound of the surf, perfect! As an extra bonus, Walt and Christine the owners of Casa Bianca were there during our stay. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and taken care of. Walt even took the time to show us his patented avocado picking technique, one of the highlights of our trip. He also makes a hell of a cocktail, that is fantastic to enjoy on the amazing rooftop deck. We highly recommend staying at Casa Bianca! Thanks again Walt and Christine!
The location really couldnt be any better. Walking distance to beach, bars and restaurants. The owner and property manager were very kind and helpful. When I return to Rincon this is the only place I want to stay. It couldnt be more perfect.
Everything we were looking for and more!
We picked Casa Bianca in part because it was close to friends further down the beach. The place was so cozy that the 5 of us ended up spending most of our time there (Apt B). The big kitchen had everything we needed, the wifi worked great, and the ipod dock and subscription tv were a pleasant surprise. The property manager was also very attentive. Even our friends down the beach liked our place better than theirs! We had a great time and would definitely stay here again.
Great for Couples!
We stayed in the 1-bedroom 1-bath apartment. The apartment was great and we had a wonderful time! The whole apartment and the patio were clean and well furnished, and the bed was comfortable. WiFi worked like a charm, and an eclectic collection of movies gave us something to do if it rained. Being on the first floor the apt gets a little less light than the others, but with the patio, the roof deck, and the beach, we had plenty of outdoor space to enjoy! Both the owner and the house manager were wonderful to deal with, very welcoming and gracious.
I must emphasize that the location is excellent. It's a one very-short-block walk to the nicest beach we saw in Rincon, and also to what I thought was the best bar and restaurant, Tamboo. I can also attest that the pictures of the beach you see here on the property page are actually of the beach nearby, and they do not exaggerate its beauty.
If I ever have the chance to return to Rincon, I will not be looking for another place to stay - I'll be calling Casa Bianca directly.
Perfect Getaway Spot
Casa Bianca is a gem located just a few feet away from a beautiful, uncrowded beach. Check -in was easy ( a quick call to the caretaker who met us at there within minutes) and we found the apartment to be extremely clean with everything we could possibly need for our stay. The wi-fi access was an appreciated feature as we did need to connect to the outside world briefly during our stay! Overall, we were very pleased with our entire experience and would not hesitate to stay here again!
Carlos and Maria
Great for a romantic weekend or for the whole family as well
This is the 2nd time we stayed at Casa Bianca (first time 5 years ago) and we still think is a great place to stayed. the new Wi-Fi and ipod docks are great additions to units and having high tech service in the remote beach town of Rincon is a plus. Ac units and rest of amenities worked to perfection. The house manager, Elier, provides an outstanding customer service and if you need him, he will be there in 3 minutes!! no joke!... an that's a super +
--the terrace on the top floor is huge, has a great view to the beach and you can take a sun bath as well. Suggestion- Maybe a set of 2 or 3 umbrellas and a brick or concrete built BBQ grill will make this terrace more useful in the daytime, in case that you don't want to take the sun but still want to enjoy the space and view.
-great service, bars to eat and have a drink at night time close to the property, quiet space and comfortable units makes this a great place to stay...I'll be back Christine!! thanks...Maria and Carlos
Loved the apartment and Rincon!
We loved our stay at the Casa Bianca! We had apartment B, and stayed with 2 grandmothers, a nephew, and 2 kids under 4, and found that the apt was more than spacious enough for us all. Everything we needed (minus beach towels) was provided including thoughtful little touches like napkins, soap, and dish liquid. The kitchen was great-every kind of pot or dish you could possibly need as well as a coffee maker and toaster oven. Loved the decor, water pressure and air conditioning in bedrooms was great, beds comfortable, and the balcony is big! We spent a lot of time out there in addition to on the roof deck--this was a great place for the kids to run! In the evening we had our pick of tons of Dvd's to watch on a really nice TV!
The beach is only a few minutes' walk away, and there is plenty of shade in the morning to early afternoon thanks to the almond trees. Water was generally calm enough for my 3 1/2 year old to run in and out by himself. The Casa Bianca had chairs, a beach umbrella, and even a few buckets available for our use.
The apt was not particularly close to the downtown of Rincon, but there are quite a few restaurants within a 5-10 minute drive away including the Tamboo which is a 3 minute walk away. Nice to sit on their deck with drinks in the evening.
Highly recommend the Casa Bianca.
A great spot to relax and enjoy Rincon
Had a great 3 nights at Casa Bianca. We stayed in apartment a and it was charming, the place is ideal as it is about a minute walk from the beach (very nice) and there is a cool bar to socialise. The beauty of the location is that you can relax or party depending on what you are looking for as it is set far enough away for tranquillity and close enough to have a fun night out if desired. The apartment itself is perfect for those looking for affordable and self-dependant accommodation. The aC in the room (definitely required) is pretty loud but not ridiculously so (I am a pretty light sleeper and slept fine) and everything else was what we hoped for the accommodation description is an accurate description of what you are going to get.
~Thanks for a great stay in Rincon
Restful getaway with all the comforts of home.
We are a family of five and stayed in apt C (3rd level). Our appartment was very spacious and comfortable. Everything was clean and we were provided plenty of linens and towels. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The beach is just steps away. It was nice to step out of the canned hotel room format to stay in a homey beachhouse instead. We will be back.
Super convenient, well equipped apartment across from the beach!
Just got back from a 4 day stay in apt C at Casa Bianca with 2 friends.
We found the place to be very clean and exceptionally well-equipped. It had all the silverware, cooking utensils, beach chairs, candles, Dvds, menus/local literature that you could ever think to need. We felt like we could relax in comfort whenever we came back from the beach or from driving around Rincon exploring the different beaches/restaurants. Especially loved the roof deck and apartment balcony.
I would say that Sandy Beach is definitely the best one for body surfing and sunbathing and Casa Bianca a 1 minute walk away.
It was also a pleasure to work with the owner and the house manager, easy in, easy out and I received my deposit back promptly.
I would definitely recommend this house to anyone who wants to be right next to the beach and is into a low-key relaxing vacation.
Delightful little spot
We stayed in the one bedroom apt. and loved the location. It was well within walking distance of the beach and several fun bars and resturants. If we had a complaint it would be that there are no electrical outlets in the bathroom for drying you hair and the bedroom could use a better light to read by. The apt. was clean and there was enough information there to help you find anything you need. We enjoyed our stay.
Amazing location - great place to stay!
Casa Bianca was amazing from the beginning.
Our party was in two cars and got separated and the owner's husband guided one car by phone while the house manager directed the other, at night.
We found the place easily enough with the help and were greeted wonderfully and immediately fell in love with the house. The floor plans were spacious and we had 10 people on two floors and never once did it feel crowded.
It has everything you could possibly need at a wonderful price and the location right next to the beach was perfect!
It made for an amazing vacation.
Didn't Need another Vacation When I Returned From Vacation!
If you are looking for a place that is a home away from home, this is your place. This is not a hotel (although it has many of the conveniences), this is your home in Rincon.I arrived later in the afternoon (drving from San Juan), than expected. The property manager maintained contact with me during my drive to ensure I arrived safely. Traveling alone I stayed in the 1 BR condo on the bottom. All of the appliances were clean, the refrigerator magnificantly cold. The orchids bloomed daily just outside the door. The grounds are well kept and manicured, very clean area. The condo sits at the bottom of a hill, but on a slope above the road. The beach is well within walking distance (1 block). There are several bars/grills nearby with lively music, despite that I turn in a little earlier than most the activity was not over bearing and instrusive. As a single female traveler, I felt secure and very much at home at Casa Bianca. I felt like I was staying at a relative's home for the week-end. I returned to the states refreshed, relaxed and incredibly with a new mindset.
Great Rincon Rental
We stayed in the lower apartment. The place is great, walking distance to the beach and close to some bars and restaurants. We found the apartment clean and comfortable, with everything that we needed.
The only minus is to be so close to the bars, since the windows have no glass you can listen to the Dj on Saturday nights instead of the Coqui.
Highlight of our trip!
We stayed in the 2nd floor apartment for three nights and it was great. The apartment has two private bedroom, great for two couples. It has a nice kitchen, living room area and two full bathrooms. There is also a rooftop terrace with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The location was wonderful, quiet and close to the beach. If your not sure what to do in Rincon, the owner has left a binder with everything you need to know about Rincon, which was definitely a positive. The area was quiet during the month of May, which was exactly what we were looking for. Our interaction with the property owner, Christine Bridges was a positive one.
Thank you again for everything! If we get a chance, we will definitely return to Casa Bianca!
This was a great place to stay in Rincon. We stayed for 3 nights and it was amazing! We highly recommend staying here as this villa is very clean and very modern. It is just a short 5 minute walk down to Sandy Beach and the surfing was great. It has a full kitchen and two bedrooms with seperate bathrooms. Perfect for my wife and our friends to stay. I can't say enough good things about it....ohh yeah and the outdoor showers are great for when you come back from the beach!
Great location to surfing beach and Tamboo. Roomy accommodations. Very nice rooftop deck where you can see and hear the ocean. Clean unit with everything you need. Hot water and plenty of towels. Off street parking was nice.
Germany / Italy
Perfectly located (short walking distance) to beach, restaurants, surf, bars etc. Big general roof terrace has a beautiful near by sea view.
Perfectly equipped appartments with full starter packages (from soap, candles, spices, beach chairs, umbrella, BABY BED, telephone for free local calls up to mosquito spray etc.) better than in any hotel. All equipment in good condition.
Spacious garden, general, fenced grounds for sports equipment, cars etc. including outside showers.
Fair priced especially for small one bedroom app.
Thoughtful, sympathic, tranquil owners with helpful intro and advices (largely summarized in a folder for each app) for Puntas, Rincon and around to feel informed right from the beginning.
We only missed a BBQ, which according to owners have been misused before. A small fixed BBQ on the nice, partly concrete garden for general use could be planned.
I can't say how comparable well is the existing local manager of this place if owners are not onsite.
Who could ask for more?!
We LOVED Casa Bianca and Puntas and Rincón! The apartment was perfect,
comfortable, convenient, everything we could have asked for. The beds and
sheets are wonderful, the kitchen well-equipped, the living room stocked with
a zillion DVDs, and a huge balcony to enjoy the ocean breezes in shaded
comfort any time of day. There are great showers in the two bathrooms, plus
an outdoor shower to rinse off when you come back from the beach. We even
found there's a washing machine and drier for common use! Who could ask for
more? We'll stay longer next time, for sure.
Great Place, Great People, Great Times
From the minute we stepped foot into Casa Bianca we new that we were in for an excellent weekend getaway. We arrived in PR at 3:00 AM on a flight from NY to Aguadilla and proceeded to drive to Rincon and Casa Bianca. Even though it was 4am by the time we arrived at our destination we were welcomed by a very friendly and informative greeter for check in. As soon as we stepped foot in the top level apartment we were amazed by the amount of interior space, decor, tremendous outdoor lanais (2 outdoor terraces, one off the living room and one rooftop) and rumble of the nearby waves from Sandy beach. The space is definetely enough to sleep six comfortably with 2 queen size beds, a futon and another couch. We woke up the next morning stepped out on to the lanai off the living room to be greeted by a gorgeous landscape and ocean view from the top level. We had the opporunity of meeting the owners of the resort; Walter and Chrisinte who were extremely informative on the area and helped to point us in the direction of the beaches, retaurants and local taverns. The property is located within walking distance of two well know beaches being Sandys & Pools; all other beaches are within a 3-5 minute drive. Also, within walking distance are 4 restaurant/bars being Tamboo, casa verde, bunger and pools. The property is very secluded and gated far enough away from these other destination (avoid the noise) but close enough to walk and enjoy. Overall I would recommend Casa Bianca and both Walter and Christine to anyone looking to enjoy the splendors that Rincon has to offer. The place, the people, the waves and the food are all very much worth the travel.

Casa Bianca thought of all the essentials you need in your home away from home. It is very accomodating. My husband left $200 behind on accident andthey actually found it and then called us about how we would like to have it reurned to us!!! We had a wonderful time there and we will be back . Julie Zintel West Oneonta, NY
Our stay at Casa Bianca was terrific! We stayed in Apartment A for two weeks and felt very at home while we were there. My husband I have been to Rincon twice before this but this was by far our most comfortable trip.
The apartment was fully stocked with towels, sheets, and kitchen items. There is a washer and dryer to use at the house. We were happy to see a nice new tv along with a large selection of dvds to watch. There was even an ipod docking speaker!
The grounds are very nicely kept and the coquis chirp away at night. You can even here the ocean. The beach is literally across the street.
We were very happy with our stay and the accomodations. The price was right as well and if we end up back in Rincon we will never think of staying any place else!
Samantha and friends
wonderful setting for a relaxing vacation!
Casa Bianca is in a perfect location- close to the beach, restaurants, bars. It also has all the amenities needed to get you through a few stormy days (which we had during our stay in rincon)...a great tv and kitchen that made staying in a pleasure. The porch/balcony was big enough for two of us to have daily yoga sessions and the roof deck was a great place for evening wine and scrabble (we brought the scrabble). A great vacation...but it went by too quickly!!
Cute Rental Apt in Beautiful Rincon
My husband, myself and friends have stayed at Casa Bianca for our vacation twice in the last two years. We stayed in the comfortable top floor, which has a private ocean view deck. The property is located very central in the Puntas area of Rincon and is an easy walk to numerous restaurants/bars and Sandy Beach. We especially liked having two bathrooms. Perfect for 2 couples as you each have your own privacy. The apartment is fully equipped with all needed amenities and appliances, plus a few nice extras like a flat screen with cable and a good selection of DVDs. There is also a rooftop terrace with a gorgeous view of the ocean and comfy lounger chairs. The only thing we didn't like were the bedroom ACs, which are noisy and rattle the shutters. But, on the muggy nights we were happy to have them, noise or not. I have only had positive interaction with the owner, Christine and the Property Manager, Elier. They are both always prompt in responding and very helpful. All in all, it's a great property and we hope to visit again!
Travel is Wonderful
Relaxing Casa Bianca
We stayed in the 2nd floor apartment for four days and it was just magical. Although it did not have an ocean view, you could hear the waves crashing on the beach and the coqui.
The apartment had everything you needed. A nice kitchen, living area, two full baths and two large clean bedrooms. The living room had a great TV/DVR so after a long day in the sun, we could relax with a film or just watch the olympics.
The apartment was a short walk to the beach and to two local restaurants. Even though it was about 85 degrees, the apartment stayed very cool with the ceiling fans and we did not turn on the ac.
The manager Eliar Lopez was just wonderful and welcoming. He met us at the door with the keys and gave us recommendations for a great bakery and how to get to the supermarket.
We'd definitely stay again, if we get the chance!

We will be going back to Casa Bianca!
My husband and I stayed in Apartment A on the main floor and really enjoyed Casa Bianca! It truly had everything we needed for a home away from home. The location was perfect- in walking distance to the beach (literally across the street) and to 3 great bars/restaurants! We were surprised how quiet it was being right in the location of the nightlife. And the rooftop deck was perfect for enjoying a glass of wine in the evening while watching the sun set with our ocean view! We actually went back to Rincon for our last night in Puerto Rico and tried to stay at Casa Bianca again but it was booked. We will be booking this place for next year for sure!
Great location, room, and owners
The room was very nice and well equipped with a TV, cable, wifi, iPod radio, bath towels and full kitchen. Not much cell reception in the room, but there is a landline phone.
Literally 2 blocks from Sandy Beach, and close to most of the places in Rincon you would go to eat or drink.
The owners were fabulous. They showed us around Rincon and generally made sure we had everything we wanted. I would definitely stay again.

Everything Was Great
Casa Bianca is a great place to stay! Great house,
close walking distance to beach/restaurant/bars.
Elier, the house manager, lives 2 min from the house
and is incredibly helpful for anything you need. A
stress-free, completely relaxing experience.
Lovely Guesthouse, great amenities, lush tropical surroundings
I have stayed twice at Casa Bianca, once in the one bedroom and once in the two bedroom. The best part is that it is set into the hill, just a moment's walk to the best beach in Rincon. The tropical plants surrounding the house made us feel as though we were in the jungle. The place has also been decorated creatively with a beach feel. The apartments are a great value - not much more expensive than any other room in Rincon, but offer much more with the full kitchen and even a stereo to plug in your IPOD. So much more spacious, comforable and welcoming than just getting a room anywhere else. We also liked that we could save some $ by making our own food. Very CLEAN and well maintained. Thanks so much - we'll definitely be back!
Great way to start off a honeymoon
My husband and I spent the first three nights of our honeymoon at Casa Bianca, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! It was clean, we had everything we needed, and way better than a hotel room. We were able to buy food, cook, and settle in just like at home.
The view from the roof is incredible, and it was worth everything for the block and a half walk to the gorgeous beach!
We were looking for an experience that was not overwhelmed with tourists, was relaxing, and was a real getaway!
Greenfield Pk, New York
This was a great place to stay which was affordable as well as clean and convenient. Steps away from the Tamboo reaturant. We were able to walk across the street to the beach. The people there were great to us. The view from the deck was beautiful. Quiet, peaceful neighborhood.
We will return soon!
Born to travel
Casa Bianca is a great spot for surfers
The owner of the house is outstanding in her customer service, she responds very fast and with good answers and options.
The house was very much like it's displayed in the website and had a nice view of the ocean. It has air conditioning units in the bedrooms and big, fast fans in the rest of the house (no glass windows, only metal slats). When we were there it is was very hot and humid, they are definitely necessary. The balcony is wonderful, but take something for bites, there were no-see-ums and they definitely see you. We had an issue with the air-conditioning unit in one room, the temperature kept going down from 75 to at least 65 and the shower holder in one of the bathrooms was broken. I called the manager to inform him of the issues on the 2nd day there but heard nothing for the rest of our stay. When I mentioned it to the owner by email as we were leaving she took action it right away.
It's a beautiful place but keep in mind the season there (when the waves are big) starts in November (don't know when it closes), so several places to eat/drink/etc were closed.
A short ride from Aguadilla and tucked into a lush tropical hillside, the Casa
Bianca offers a cozy Rincón experience at a great price. It's a weekend or a
vacation that you can truly take at your own speed, split between the short
walk to the point for a surf and lazing on the porch playing dominoes. The full
kitchen and dishwasher make cooking in a great option, but there's no
shortage of local flavor right near by.

Home Away From Home
We have been vacationing in Rincon each winter for five years and each
time we come back to Casa Bianca. We always stay in the top apartment,
because we enjoy the view from the balcony (great for breakfast and
cocktails), but have had the chance to tour the first and second floor
apartments, and they seem just as comfortable and charming. Regardless of
which apartment you stay in, the roof is open to all and equipped with
lounge chairs and tables.
Casa Bianca is situated just a short walk from popular bars (the Tamboo,
Pools), great restaurants (Casa Islena, the Bon Accord), and one of the best
beaches in the area. Yet it feels private, tucked against a hillside and
surrounded by well-maintained tropical landscaping. Ripening bananas,
bread fruits and coconuts are visible on the trees. On quiet nights, the
chirping Coqui frogs and the surf are the only sounds. On weekends, the
nearby nightlife can sometimes get a little boisterous. If you're not up for
joining in and the noise bothers you, turning on the fan in the bedroom A/C
unit effectively drowns it out.
We always find the house well-provisioned with plenty of clean linens, soap,
and cooking equipment (including a charcoal grill). The washer and dryer
are terrific to have. Having returned to the place many times, I've found the
owners to be conscientious about keeping the apartments maintained and
updated. For example, several years ago an iPod stereo appeared! Another
year, we found a beautiful mosaic at the top of the driveway. It seems every
year there's some small improvement. With all of this plus the TV and WiFi,
it's rare to find an affordable vacation rental so well-appointed.
The Rincon area, like Casa Bianca, has the perfect balance of amenities and
rustic tropical charm. Take the opportunity to visit restaurants, stores and
farm stands run by local Puerto Ricans -- among them some of Rincon's
best-kept secrets. There is plenty of literature at Casa Bianca providing

Wonderful setting for a beach holiday!
Three generations of our family rented two of the three Casa Bianca apartments, and found the location and amenities perfect for all ages. The apartments are very attractively decorated, with all the amenities we wanted (wifi, TV, etc.). The grounds around the house are attractive and spacious enough for us to feel like we had our own space. And Sandy Beach is definitely the nicest beach in Rincon for swimming and playing in the waves. The fact that it's just across the road meant that we could all come and go as we wanted.
The one small inconvenience was that we needed to go out on the balcony or terrace in order to have good cell phone reception.
After Rincon, we visited some of the other parts of the main island (we didn't go to any of the offshore islands), but all agreed that Rincon was the best setting for a family holiday on the beach. It has a lot to offer - an attractive town, lots of beaches, snorkling, surfing, horsebacking riding, etc. And Casa Bianca, in terms of setting, service, and amenities, couldn't have been more perfect.
The apartment was wonderful. Spaces and efficiency was absolute it great. Everything that you need was in the house. Is like moving from your house to another house without missing anything. We got groceries, cooked and was great. The beach is accross from the complex, we went to a bar close to the apartment which in the second floor of a mini market and the bartender Mike was very friendly. We had a great time. Eriel, the maanger, was very freindly and hepful so no problem what so ever. Recommend the place to whoever who will like to have a place and have fun. Thanks Christine to accomodate us in a very short notice. Thans a bunch. Wanda from Maryland.

Relaxing and comfortable
My husband and I stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment at Casa Bianca in Rincon. We weren't expecting a lot because of the bargain price but we were extremely surprised once we arrived. The kitchen had all we needed, the bed was very comfortable and the views from the rooftop deck were unbelievable. Casa Bianca is within walking distance to great bars and restaurants and a small convenience store that had all we needed. The house even had a washer and dryer which meant we could pack light! We highly recomment staying at Casa Bianca. We can't wait to go back.
