Property description

Exquisitely decorated, 2013 sq. ft., beachfront villa in the Crescent Cove complex in Palmas Del Mar, 200 yards from 2 miles of unspoiled, impeccably-maintained beaches.

Ensuite bathrooms in every bedroom provide for your and your traveling companions' privacy and convenience. With thousands of dollars in locally made, artisan-crafted rattan furniture, many original oils, giclées and serigraphs on the walls and maintained to a very high standard, this villa really is a second home, not the typical low-budget, short-term rental property -and our many guest reviews attest to that. Indeed, the two largest property management firms in Palmas consider our villa the best rental property in Crescent Cove.

Located on Puerto Rico's southeast shore (about an hour's drive from San Juan) Palmas del Mar is a sprawling resort consisting of some 2,750 acres on more than two miles of palm tree-lined beach. Set on a former sugarcane plantation, the resort is located on the Caribbean Sea, with the Island of Vieques to the east.

Palmas Del Mar is both a vacation resort and a sophisticated limited access residential community with many different home developments throughout with really just two developments -Crescent Beach and Crescent Cove - being truly beachfront.

Speaking of Crescent Cove, our regime was just the second 'villa or apartment' complex to be developed in Palmas and thus, it was situated in the best section of Palmas' almost two miles of beaches, partially protected from the prevailing easterly trade winds by Candelero Point. Between October and late March and as the prevailing winds are more northerly, our beach is usually calm, becoming a bit more 'sporty as the more normal Easterly trades start prevailing in late spring and summer. Because the beach is also semi-protected by a small reef just outside Candelero Point, there will be many days of the late Spring-to-Fall season where the beach just in front of Crescent Beach and Crescent Cove is the only swimmable area of the 2 miles of beaches inside Palmas Del Mar. And of course, beach lounges are available from the Crescent Cove staff for your comfort while beachside..

The villa's southeast exposure allows its penthouse terrace to be in shadow from mid-afternoon on, making it a lovely place to enjoy the stunning views of the courtyard, pool and beach area. That same southeast exposure provides a wonderful, natural breeze through the property that allows many to just shut off the A/C's, open the windows and sleep with the soft sound of the surf in the background....

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 within one hour of Old San Juan and two hours from almost all the many attractions that Puerto Rico has to offer, Palmas will be as good as it gets.

If you are looking for fabulous golf, Palmas' two golf courses are considered among the finest in Puerto Rico. The old course - the Palm Course - was designed by Gary Player in the late Eighties and was updated in 2002. The front nine and back nine are totally different with the front nine being narrow & very technical -mostly an iron course- but with the back nine huge, wide open and long, with many elevation changes. Some holes have truly spectacular views of the beach and coastline with greens and tees 150 feet up from the beach.

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. Trust me....make a bogey there and you will be very happy. ;o)

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.

The villa's bedrooms will sleep six and we can accommodate a 7th guest with roll-aways that can be placed in any room. With each bedroom's en-suite, you and your traveling companions will have privacy when desired and enjoy the villa's spacious common areas when mingling.

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.

Car: Recommended

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 22 tennis courts all within the resort's grounds.

 

Manager info

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 shortly after 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 home in Puerto Rico 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...
