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.

Wished we could have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property! It is even better than the photos in person. The location is also very ideal. Close to everything you would want in Rincon. Such a great town to hang out in. I am convinced in need a pool back home now. It was amazing to swim in each night after a day out. I wished we had more to stay longer. My kids are ready to move to Rincon. The house amenities were great as well. We loved fresh smoothies each morning right next door also. Another highlight was the house book that was on the table that gave highlights and suggestions for the town. Perfect!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at R Villa. The house has everything you could possibly need. We even found a couple of baby items! Allison and the owner were very accommodating. The view from the porch/pool is breathtaking and the pool is exquisite. The smoothies next door were a bonus. I would definitely stay again.

Great Pool and Back Patio

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at RVilla. The house is a bit dated in a coupe places but it is very clean and well kept. We always had hot showers, no power loss, the water is clean and drinkable, and the internet was working (a bit spotty at times, but working).

The highlight of the property is the pool/back patio/grill/bocce area which is awesome. Beautiful view not only of the ocean and sunsets, but also of the gardens/farm behind the house. We had all our breakfasts on the back porch and a few dinners - it was great.

There are multiple sets of snorkel gear (sized for older kids/adults) and beach toys in the laundry room. And a fun add-on is the smoothie stand right next door. We visited every morning for a smoothie or two and some pumpkin or banana bread.

Allison was fantastic. Responsive and when our car got a flat tire she helped us get it taken care of right away. We recommend.
