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 Puerto Rico

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.

Best House in Rincon!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented different houses over the years in Rincon and this one is the best we've ever found. It's located in Ensenada which has all the best beaches and restaurants within walking distance of the house.

The house is spotless. You can tell that the owners, Allison and Leon, are meticulous with upkeep and maintenance. It has everything you could possibly need including sun block, towels, pool floats, toys for the kids and snorkel equipment.

There's a brand new Weber BBQ grill that we used daily while the bocce court provided hours of entertainment.

We walked into town for the farmers market on Sunday and the Art Walk on Thursday night. We walked to Calypso Bar and listened to live music.

There's so much to do in the neighborhood we hardly got in the car.

We can't wait to come back!!

Thank you Allison for all your help and recommendations!

Allison was a wonderful host! The pool and bocce court were so nice to have and very well maintained. Great snorkel equipment which we made use of almost every day. Their place next door carta buena has excellent coffe and smoothies which we enjoyed daily. Our own little paradise! What a great trip. Thank you!!!

Amazing home with all you need!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing stay at R Villa. The house was everything we thought it would be and more. Stunning views and a great pool made the day every morning to walk out and begin the day. Huge plus was Carta Buena next door. We popped over for coffee, smoothies and breakfast every day during our stay. The home was fully equipped with everything from snorkel and pool gear to kitchen and bath supplies. I would highly recommend anyone traveling to Rincon for a getaway or trip with friends to consider R Villa. The location was perfect for strolls to the beach and easy in and out of town. Allison was attentive to any needs and a please to rent from. We've stayed in Rincon a few times and this was the best stay we have had.

Incredible villa in Rincon!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year and enjoyed it immensely.

Our group of three couples each had a great room with lots of space.

The pool and bocce ball court were perfect entertainment when we weren't at the beach, which is close by.

The Juice/Smoothie place next door was a daily delight.

We cant wait to come again!

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Even before we got to the house we had a great experience with Allison. She was so helpful with getting groceries to the house, booking massages. Previous reviews were right on about Allison and the house being great. It is clean, has everything you need including snorkeling gear and pool toys. Walk to beach. Smoothies next to the house were delicious. Kids loved the pool. Hope to visit again.
