Palmas del Mar villa description

Elegant, comfortable, completely remodeled 3-bedroom, 3.5 bath beachfront villa in the Crescent Cove complex in Palmas Del Mar, 200 yards from 2 miles of unspoiled, impeccably-maintained beaches.

Each bedroom has its own ensuite bath for you and your traveling companions' privacy and convenience. With over $60k invested in it between 2009 and 2013, the villa is a cut above the typical rental property in Palmas -and the many guest reviews attest to that. Renovations and upgrades included a new kitchen with granite countertops and SS appliances, ultra high-efficiency AC units with anti-allergen filters, new furniture throughout including custom and locally-made Rattan bedroom sets in all the bedrooms, new glass windows and doors, all with impact-resistant glass for your safety in case of foul weather, all new art including many oils and gicleés, new terrace tiles and many other improvements. Indeed, the two largest property management firms in Palmas consider our villa the best rental property in Crescent Cove.

The villa's southeast exposure allows its penthouse terrace to be in shadow from mid-afternoon on, making it the perfect place to enjoy the stunning views of the courtyard, pool and beach area.

Renting through us and our on-site property manager Oceano Properties provides you nearly unlimited access to all of Palmas Del Mar's leisure and athletic attractions including Palmas Del Mar's award-winning Tennis, Golf and Beach Club facilities at significantly discounted rates. Golf carts, concierge services, all forms of meal and housekeeping services are available as well.

Palmas' two golf courses are considered among the finest in Puerto Rico. The old course - the Palm Course - was designed by Gary Player and was updated in 2002. The front nine and back nine are totally different with the front nine being narrow & very technical -an iron course- and the back nine huge, wide open and long, with many elevation changes. Some holes have truly spectacular views of the beach and coastline.

The new course - Flamboyán - was designed by Rees Jones and finished in 2001. It is generally a long, difficult, wide open course with several long Par 4s and Par 5's that play directly into the teeth of what is usually a 15-20 mph breeze. I jokingly call #7 - a 540yard, slightly uphill Par 5 that plays directly into that wind- the only Par 6 in Puerto Rico.

Besides fabulous golf, Palmas Del Mar has several miles of golf cart trails and walking paths, an equestrian center, 22 tennis courts and a fully-equiped fitness center -all accessible at guest of member rates.

Palmas Del Mar is located 50 minutes from San Juan making a day drive to San Juan a breeze. Palmas is also one hour from El Yunque -the Caribbean National (rain) Forest and Las Croabas where you can enjoy all sorts of day sails/outings to the many cays that dot the east coast of the island and the Cabezas de San Juan Bio-Bay.

In short, Palmas perfectly situated for you to enjoy almost all of what Puerto Rico has to offer without the mad hustle and bustle of San Juan proper. If you are looking to enjoy a relaxing resort atmosphere without being far from anything, Palmas will be as good as it gets -and our property is one of the nicest available.

          Other Amenities

              • The beach area just in front of Crescent Cove and its contiguous complex Crescent Beach just to the east is the best section of beach in Palmas Del Mar, protected from the most of the prevailing swells by a natural reef a quarter-mile East of the complexes. This reef is visible in the Google Map views I describe below. The villa has all the beach towels you will need and the Crescent Cove regime provides beach chairs/lounges for the complex's guests. Mid-stay maid/cleaning services are available. To see the villa's location, access Google Maps and search for Palmas Del Mar, Candelero, Puerto Rico. Switch to satellite view and tab the map right (east) and up (north) until the two U-shaped complexes come into view. Crescent Cove is the one with the pool closest to the ocean and our villa is in the 10th building on the left (southwest) leg of the U. The complex's Four Seasons Hotel and Casino is 300 yards from the villa -an easy 5 minute stroll....moreless

                          Palmas Del Mar is Puerto Rico's fastest-growing, resort/residential community with over 3000 full-time residents and a thriving vacation ambiance. The property encompasses 2700 acres with 600 acres designated as wildlife preserve areas and has miles of walking, jogging and golf cart paths. Palmas Del Mar's beaches extend for over two miles and the best section of its beach is right in front of our complex and its sister Crescent Beach complex.

                          Palmas is 50 minutes from the fabulous shopping and 500 years of history of Old San Juan and one hour from El Yunque -the local Taíno name for the Caribbean National Rain Forest.

                          Several boat charters operate from the Palmas Marina offering half and full-day sails to Monkey Island and Vieques and Culebra -the Spanish Virgin Islands. Between November and April, our wahoo (ono) run compares to that in the Bahamas, with fish available 2 miles offshore. Palmas hosts 2 championship golf courses designed by Rees Jones and Gary Player, a casino, equestrian center, SCUBA charters, a dozen restaurants and two dozen tennis courts all within the resort's grounds.

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About: Gaby, Elena and I lived in Puerto Rico until 2001 when worked forced us to relocate Stateside, where we live today....in the Pacific Northwest.

                          Why Palmas del Mar:
                          We fell in love with Palmas way back in 1980 when we first met and longed to live there while we worked and lived in Puerto Rico. We bought our first property in Palmas in 1997 and lived there until we relocated to the US in 2001. The love of Palmas and Puerto Rico moved us to buy this property in 2006 and we have it to be our future, permanent home when I can retire sometime in 2015 or 2016

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Crescent Cove is one of just two truly beachfront regimes in Palmas -Crescent Beach being the other. Crescent Cove is smaller and more intimate then Crescent Beach and appeals to us for its smaller, more laid back atmosphere. The layout of the Crescent Cove villas is different: multiple levels versus a more traditional flat, single-level floor plan which gives everyone more privacy should one want that while one is staying there...
