A wonderful natural setting, with local color, views of the Caribbean and great swimming just 150 feet from your door.Located in a private, gated community, Villa Palmira, offers miles of beach combing. On one side of the Villa Palmira beach, a nature center provides hiking trails and kayaking. To the north a Government Park limits access to the beach and stretches more than a mile to Punta Santiago, a quaint beach town with nightlife and a number of well-regarded native seafood restaurants. A newly opened water park at Punta Santiago Public Beach can be reached via a short stroll north along the beach. The swimming is safe and the ocean floor sandy. Children will find the edge waters shallow and inviting. Adults can swim out a few hundred feet for deeper waters and still find a sandy bottom
Year Purchased: 2006
About: Villa Palmira is owned by Marilyn and Jim Meighan of Dunbarton, New Hampshire. The house has been owned by the Meighan family since 2006, when it was purchased as a vacation home. We redecorated and modernized the property to serve as a vacation rental. When Jim and Marilyn retire, they plan to use the property as a winter home.
I've decorated the house so that you'll always feel like you're in the tropics. We want our guests to have the unique and memorable experience that only Puerto Rico can offer. We want them to say, it's been wonderful to be in Puerto Rico...whether they relaxed on the beach reading a book, or spent everyday sightseeing.
'A Puerto Rican vacation is wonderful in many ways. The weather is wonderful and dependable. The environment is both relaxing and stimulating. There's always something new to do or discover. The island is beautiful, and the Puerto Rican people are friendly and helpful. Go once and you'll always want to go back!'
Why Villa Palmira: This is a great vacation home for folks who like nature and want a non-resort experience. Villa Palmira is in a small beachfront community that is both quiet and private. Few people are found on the beach which is amply shaded by a wonderful palm grove. After you leave our 500 yard beach, you can continue on north along a lovely 'State Park' type beach, which is little used and buffered from noise and crowds by the park lands, for 1.5 miles to the little fishing village of Punta Santiago, where local seafood restaurant are found. To the South is a wonderful nature center, with shady walks for hot afternoons and a glorious hill top view of our beach. The nature center offers kayak rentals and access to hours of kayaking along a self-guilder route. You see tropical birds, turtles, iguana and much more, on this safe easy to take paddle. Only ten minutes away is Humacao, with American Style shopping and restaurants. 15 mimutes away is the Palmas Del Mar resort. We give you access to its famous beach club, disounts on golf and tennis. You can also visit it's beach free of charge or stop by any of its 15 restaurants and bars. The resort also has a Casino, often sponsors free cultural events such as Jazz night under the stars. A half hour to the north is El Junque Rain Forest Park, run by the US National Park system. Fajardo,25 minutes as away, is the ferry port to Culebra and Vieques, making day trips to those island easy. The world famous bioluminescent bay in Fajardo is easily visited by Kayak with nightly guided trips. Just up the road in Naguabo, you can also hire a local captain to take you to near by Monkey Island, for a half day of snorkeling (feed tropical fish right out of your hand!) and viewing the Rhesus Monkeys on shore. We also give you our 30 day-tip guide, written by us to make your adventures safe and easy.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Here's the most important thing you need to know about Puerto Rico: It is both safe and friendly. Thousands of American's own second homes in Puerto Rico. Our family has purchased four vacation homes in Puerto Rico since 2000. We, and many others like us, have invested in Puerto Rico because it is very much like an American state. The roads are modern and paved; hospitals as staffed with Doctors trained in American Medical Schools; you can shop at Sam's Club, or Costco or Walmart if you chose. The primary language is Spanish, but many Puerto Ricans are bi-lingual, and many look enjoy speaking English with their American guests. Certainly there is crime in Puerto Rico. (Do you live somewhere where there is never any crime?) However, we have more than 1000 guest parties at our four homes and no one has experienced a crime. No one has been insulted or hassled or accosted by the native population. This is in part because Puerto Rico is part of the United States.It has a representative in Congress. They are citizens of the US and as a result, more Puerto Ricans live in the States than in Puerto Rico. Almost every resident of Puerto Rico has an uncle or cousin in the US. If not a bother or son. Hundreds of thousands have served in the US military. They are proud to be Americans and they like Americans from the States. So when you go to Puerto Rico, expect to be treated well. You will be.
