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 2006

Why Allison Richter chose Ensenada

We had been renting a house in the neighborhood for years and was always on the look out for our dream home. Once this house went on the market we jumped on it. It had all three characteristics that we had to have. #1 VIEWS: incredible ocean views, stunning sunset views, and views to Desecheo Island. #2 LOCATION: Located in the Tres Palmas Marie Reserve on Steps Beach, which happens to be the prettiest beach in town. #3 PROXIMTY TO OCEAN: No need to get in the car to go swimming, snorkeling or surfing! Just walk out door and onto the sand.

What makes this House unique

Quiet, peaceful neighborhood, Steps from the beach. Starry nights, shooting stars, sunfilled days, gorgeous sunsets. World class snorkeling and scuba diving right in front of the house. On the rare occasion some of the biggest surfing waves in the world. Hawksbill turtles living on the reef in front of the house. Swimming with turtles. Watching whales breach from the deck.

                                                                  Great chill house

                                                                  Jose D.Round Pond, Maine

                                                                  The house was great, the waves crashing on the beach were awsome and very relaxing. I am am an amateur radio operator and there was just enough room to set up my wire antenna on the yard and was able to make contacts worldwide from the table on the back deck.

                                                                  Leon was a great host and we enjoyed having a drink with him.

                                                                  The area is safe, we don't lock our house or vehicles in Maine and never locked the car when we were there but respected the owners wishes and locked the house at night and when we were gone.

                                                                  It was a great holiday!

                                                                  Best wishes,

                                                                  Jose and Nancy Douglas

                                                                  SmehalekDover, NH

                                                                  My family has stayed at R House for years now, and this year was just as awesome! The house and town had power and water the entire week. The house was clean and stylish and just steps away from snorkeling on a coral reef. We saw turtles, octopus, eels, and every tropical fish imaginable. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner were tasty treats at our favorite restaurants and trucks around town. It was our best trip to the island yet!

                                                                  Amesome house in perfect location!

                                                                  Julie G.

                                                                  The house was super cute and perfect for us traveling with a baby! Location could not have been better being right on the beach! Awesome hosts! Can't wait to return next year!

                                                                  It is a quiet, private and easy to reach place. The house is comfortable and spacious.

                                                                  The owner is very friendly and attentive. We really liked the house and the beach, we hope to return on a next occasion. Highly recommend.


                                                                  Es un lugar tranquilo, privado y de fácil acceso. La casa es cómoda y espaciosa.

                                                                  La dueña es muy amable y atenta. Nos gustó mucho la casa y la playa, esperamos volver en una próxima ocasión. Altamente recomendado.

                                                                  Excellent, Just as described

                                                                  Roger D.Coopersburg, PA

                                                                  We stayed here for 9 days from the end of June through the first week of July (2 adults, 2 kids). The location is fantastic. Snorkeled, swam and walked the beach every day. The scenery, sunsets are amazing. I won't re-write all of the 5 star reviews, but completely agree with them. The description for the listing is spot-on. Everything in the apartment worked great, Wi-Fi was strong. Allison was very easy to reach with any questions.

The remaining 50% is due upon arrival or before. I accept online credit card payments through Homeaway and VRBO, check, money order, cash or paypal. If a guest has to cancel the reservation I will put the rental back on the rental market. If I’m able to get the house rented again for the dates that were booked, I will refund their 50% deposit. If I’m not able to get it rented again, I keep the deposit.
