“Wish I could have stayed forever!!!”

Reviewed 19 Nov 2013

Wife and I had an amazing stay at the R house! Perfect location in a perfect little Puerto Rican town. Well away from the hustle and bustle of San Juan. Easy flight from South Florida and interesting ride from San Juan or fly direct in to aguadilla. Wake up, walk 20 feet to the ocean, relax all day on a beautiful beach. The ocean behind the house is all protected aquatic area so pristine snorkeling is right at your back door step! The house has all the amenities you need to stay a weekend or a month. Plenty of shops and restaurants in town to keep you fed and occupied. Owners are amazing, kind and super helpful folks. Hooked us up with all the the information we needed for a perfect 3 day very long very relaxing vacation. Can't wait to get back asap!!!

Response from the owner Please come back and visit with us again!

“Best rental in Rincon”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2013

Visited rincon with my wife to get some rest and relaxation in over a long weekend. The Richters rental was exactly what we needed. Steps to the beach and great local dining/ bars within walking distance (Carta buena juices my fav). The house has anything and everything you need -- water sports gear, laundry, bikes, and the cutest dog Snickers. Friendly owners who were happy to assist when we needed a hand and left us alone when we wanted privacy. Not sure why other reviews mention Internet problems- worked fine for us and I was online daily. Best spot you can rent-- highly recommend off you're lucky enough to find R House available. It books up quickly and now I know why. Will definitely be back.

“Best rental on the island”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2013

My family just finished our third trip to R house. Leon and alli do a wonderful job making us feel right at home. Every year we come, they are making upgrades-- this year the kitchen and bath were renovated- very modern and hoping to replicate the design back home. Being right on the beach is such a treat. We end each day Bbq-ing on the covered porch looking out to the waves. They also are adding another house a block away that will have a swimming pool so we will definitely return again to check it out. Best vacation experience which is why we repeat it every year. Can't rave enough about how amazing the house is. A must for families but can also see my hubby and I making this a romantic getaway. Rincon at the Richters is the best.

“Perfect Secret Spot Beach House”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2013

We just found the Perfect Secret Spot Beach House in Rincón. Just a week ago we stayed in the "R" house for multiple nights. The "R" house is one of the few homes inside the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve. My family and I rented the second floor. As soon as I open the door, paradise! Everything that you need was there for you from a coffee grinder and french press to the "hammock" and Wifi. Please remember that you are just a few steps way from the beach. Just walk barefoot from my hammock to the beach under the shade of mango & almond trees. The house is equipped with bikes, snorkeling gear, books and BBQ. Allison is wonderful, she prepared a manual that has all the answers to your questions and more. We spend very good amount of time snorkeling in the reserve and doing some sup. The snorkeling is very good. Walking in the community you feel the sense of respect for the reserve and the peace that you are looking for. The town is amazing to explore and do not miss La Cambija for local food. It is also a great place to stay if you surf during the season. Please do not tell to a lot of people. We travel to a lot of different places but this is that type of house and location that we are coming again. Thank you for everything !!! Raymond y Jannette

“Wonderful Vacation!”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2013

We loved the house. The location is fabulous, as it is just steps from the beach. The pictures do not do the house justice. Allison also had a great packet of information at the house with lots of tid bits on where to eat and things to do. We stayed on the second floor and there is aC in one of the rooms, but the other room can get a little warm, but we rarely noticed.

Stayed at this wonderful home with my fiancé and we have nothing but great things to say. Great location, beach is so close you can hear the waves crashing! Would stay again if I ever head back.

“Tres Palmas Review”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2013

Amazing view! Great house. There were a few hiccups getting into the house and the 6 am lawn crew was a bit annoying (only once a week), but overall an amazing place to stay. Allison and Leon are great and the views are undesirable. Clean family friendly place to stay right on the beach! Thank you!

“Loved every minute!”

Reviewed 7 Mar 2013

A fantastic rental with everything that you could possible want/need for your vacation. Location was perfect: lovely beach outside, restaurants and activities not far away. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well-stocked, fresh herbs were available, and allison provided lots of information on what to do in Rincon. Despite our vacation overlapping with theirs, they were still available via phone whenever we needed their help with anything. Overall, our favorite part of our Puerto Rico vacation by far.

“A Personal Piece of Heaven”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2013

My husband and I stayed at R House for four nights in December and it was our very own slice of paradise. We splurged on this place to make this trip extra special because it was our fifth anniversary/honeymoon we never had trip. I was very pleased with the result. Our Rincon stay was R House was beautiful, peaceful and fun. Ali was a wonderful hostess, helping us with any needs we had, but not being intrusive on our vacation. You'll have the first floor all to yourselves. We worried about noise from the Richtors or the neigbors, but overall it was pretty quiet. The lull of the ocean is wonderful and kept us snuggled in bed on more than one morning! The hammock was a great place to lay and watch the sunset through the garden or listen to the singing of the Coqui. The garden was breathtaking! We also loved having Snickers around since we're dog people and we started to miss our babies back at home. Overall a great time, with only minor issues - the washing machine was broken on our visit so we couldn't do laundry, the ipod dock didn't charge our iPod, and the internet signal was very weak. However, these things didn't hold a candle to the great things - the connection with nature, the incredible beachside view and the luxury of having a private beachfront mecca. Overall a solid experience at R House. If you decide on R House, you won't be disappointed. When you visit check out The Lazy Parrot for a fancy dinner, the English Rose (scary drive but incredible views) for brunch and Lucky 13 barbaque for some interesting drinks. Oh, and if you want to try surfing, we took lessons at Road to Happiness (near the Calypso restaurant) from a pro named Darron and he was great - very friendly, patient and skilled! Rincon was wonderful, we'll return someday! Enjoy your trip!

“Perfect snorkeling and surfing in your front yard!”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2012

We have stayed at R House for the 2nd year and, if anything, we liked it even more this year! We love the jungle garden just before you hit the sand and you are literally within the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve with incredible snorkeling. There are both brain and elkhorn corals in the same area which is rare and the tropical fish and Hawksbill Turtles were a wonder! My husband was able to surf within walking distance as well...surfing and snorkeling in the same area is difficult to find. The house is run very well and is lovely with a new kitchen! We liked the feeling of safety of having the owners upstairs also. We literally could have avoided getting in the car the entire stay as it is just a short beach walk to one of the best oceanfront restaurants in Rincon...the Black Eagle. Playing in the crystal clear waters everyday, walking along the beach to dinner and then settling in on the oceanfront jungle lanai to candles and a hammock...not to mention all the gear being provided...well, what's not to love! We cannot wait to come back!
