About Helen Cuevas Zakhar, Proprietor / Event Designer

Our dream was always to have a house in the tropics with oceanviews. We traveled to most of the Virgin Islands during our vacations, and would jot down ideas for our dream vacation get away. Without really planning it we were on vacation in Puerto Rico when my brother alerted me to visit the town of Rincon. On the same day, we searched for a realtor and closed the deal! It was the perfect spot to build our dream house.

Helen Cuevas Zakhar, Proprietor / Event Designer purchased this villa in 1994

Why Helen Cuevas Zakhar, Proprietor / Event Designer chose Rincon

We were fortunate to find the most wonderful spot with constant tropical breezes, calming blue oceanviews surrounded by lush tropical trees and flowers. The idea of having our dream come true was close to a reality. With the assistance of the local architect and using our experience as world travelers, we designed Villa El Encanto! Rincon is famous for its friendly low key atmosphere, beautiful sunsets, whale-watching, fresh fruits and fish, and quiet ambiance.

What makes this villa unique

Villa El Encanto offers the unique opportunity to vacation as you wish either relaxing by the pool, eating your meals in the gazebo while watching the ocean, colorful birds, butterflies, flowers, walking to the beach. We built the Villa to provide you ample space and comfort with a tropical design and decor. Villa El Encanto is close to town for your shopping convenience, but far enough to guarantee peace and quiet. Our reviews speak for themselves as do our repeat clientele. Some clients have returned year after year and are give us the best referrals. We look forward to your visit. BIENVENIDOS!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Fabulous Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I vacationed at Villa El Encanto and it was truly exceptional. The best of both worlds...relaxing private location, with beaches and restaurants a short walk away. Luxurious accommodations, breathtaking views, refreshing pool and outside cooking patio. We thank you for making our trip so wonderful. We look forward to visiting again!

Villa El Encanto is the perfect alternative to a busy hotel, located in the heart of Rincon, just a short walk to the beach. Here you will find privacy, space, comfort and charm, set atop a hill overlooking the ocean. It is immaculately maintained, with picturesque palm trees, exotic plants, and flowers. For 4 nights, my boyfriend and I enjoyed magnificent sunrises and sunsets, starry skies and quiet nights from the one-bedroom Villita's balcony. Access to the pool was a plus, as we loved having the property to ourselves, and sometimes preferred to stay "home," instead of going to the beach. The very sweet and friendly owner, Helen, was exceptionally helpful in suggesting restaurants and things to do nearby. We made great use of her email lists during this trip, which was my first Puerto Rican vacation. Coming from a freezing cold New York City winter, the last thing we wanted to do was leave. But we will be back, as soon as we can, and imagine that anyone else who has stayed here has the same plan!

My husband and I spent Thanksgiving week at the Villa el Encanto and it was wonderful. The house, the pool and the views all contributed to a feeling of relaxation and cheerfulness. After dinner we would sit with a glass of wine on the porch feeling the gentle breeze, admiring the view and amazed at how many starts we could see.

We went snorkeling in the nearby Steps beach (awesome!) and ate our way all over town. Miss the Kaplash seafood empanada - yum!

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home away from home! Everything -- the kitchen, the rooms, the furnishings, and the grounds -- was well equipped, in perfect condition, and beautifully maintained! It was luxurious yet relaxing and the pictures don't do it justice. We enjoyed the beautiful pool every day and appreciated the convenience of the pool house with a bathroom, indoor and outdoor shower, cooking area, and bbq. But you don't have to cook, as there are plenty of places nearby to eat good local food. Tamboo is a short walk right down the hill and Shipwreck and Ode to Elephants (Thai) are a short drive away. We liked them all. There is a nice small beach right down the hill and there are many other larger beaches a short (or longer) drive away. We especially enjoyed Playa (Beach) Crash Boat, which is right near the Aguadilla airport, about 1/2 hour away. If you fly into Aguadilla and arrive during the day, consider stopping on your way to Rincon.

This was a great place for a ladies' getaway! The owner, Helen, and the property manager, Evelyn, were lovely, efficient, and very helpful. I highly recommend Villa El Encanto!

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Villa el Encanto is a great choice for a Puerto Rican vacation. The house was perfect for 4 adults, the pool was amazing and the views were stunning. It was close to the beach and restaurants, while still having a secluded feeling. The pictures of the house look exactly as it does in person and the grounds were beautifully manicured. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend Villa el Encanto to anyone who is interested in staying in the Rincon area.

THE BEST !!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We don't travel much because we have such a large family, so this vacation needed to be wonderful. This was the ABSOLUTE BEST vacation we have had!!! The house looks EXACTLY like it does in the pictures. It is neat and clean. The pool was FANTASTIC, the view was beautiful and peaceful. The grounds were clean, and very well kept. It was sooo quiet, so peaceful, so relaxing... it was like a dream!!! The sound of the surf off in the distance was lovely. The property owner and manager were FANTASTIC to work with. We rented the lower half of the house and the apartment above the garage for our college age daughter and her friend. Both were just PERFECT. Everything went so smoothly, I kept waiting for something bad to happen... but it didnt. It is close to a lot of great places, but away from all the noise and busy streets. It was I swear the most beautiful property of all. We could not have been any happier!!!! LOVED LOVED LOVED it!!!
