About Allison Richter

Leon and I have lived in Rincon for well over 10 years and have loved every minute of it. After moving from NYC to the beaches of Rincon, we used to look up at skyscrapers, now we look up at the palm trees. Life doesn't get any better than this. We're able to swim or surf everyday at Tres Palmas, we hear the coqui frogs singing at night with the waves crashing on the beach, we get to see the most spectacular sunset every night and we eat fruit that falls off the trees in the neighborhood.

Allison Richter purchased this house in 2013

Why Allison Richter chose Ensenada

We own the property next door that has Carta Buena, Rincon's only local juice bar that serves juices, smoothies and light fare. When the house next door went up for sale we immediately knew we wanted to purchase it. We're thrilled to see our vision unfold.

What makes this house unique

R Villa is located in the most desirable neighborhood in Rincon. It's within walking distance to the Marina where all kinds of water and land activities take place. We're within walking distance to many restaurants and bars such as Carta Buena, Shipwreck Restaurant, Copa Llena Restaurant, Joe's Bar at Club Nautico, Steps Quick Lunch and Dogman's Deli.

Spectacular view, pool, and backyard!

  • 5 of 5

We had a guys weekend at R Villa and loved it. The bocce ball court was a huge hit with the crew, we ended up playing hours of the game. The saltwater pool is also really nice and the sunsets from the house were absolutely stunning. It was a little less private than I had imagined (the neighbors were a little close and the hurricane has knocked down a bunch of the trees), but I would definitely come again. They provide a book with recommendations that I thought was incredibly well done. And finally, the house isn't luxurious (I can have high standards because of my beautiful wife), but it's really clean and comfortable for some time in beautiful Rincon. I wish we had stayed an extra day or two!

A great house

  • 5 of 5

R Villa suited our family of 5 perfectly. The pool, patio and back porch are the places to hang. Great views and sunsets. They have beach gear at the house, so you don’t need to pack your own stuff. Loved it!

Truly an awesome place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable house for all our party of seven. Nothing was missing, felt at home right away. Pool was great and not to mention steps beach is awesome and within walking distance. Place is very close to everything yet far enough to avoid the bustling Rincon party scene and have a good night sleep. Looking forward to our next outing at R Villa.

The house is so comfortable, with an incredible ocean view, & a great pool to begin & end each day! There's also an awesome food cart next to the house "Carta Buena" that serves the most delicious smoothies & yummy snacks. We plan on returning every year!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The back yard setting is sublime with the pool, the covered deck with ceiling fans and an awesome view. Being literally next to carta buena was a treat. We walked a few places but also enjoyed a bunch of restaurants further a field. The binder has great info and recommendations.
