  • Perfect Home away from home

    "Such a beautiful home, nicely decorated and full of amenities that owner (Milton) let's you use. He is very accommodating and attentive. I had a problem with the air conditioner and he responded quickly. It is in a great location, beautiful, secluded, gated community with golf trails. Resort environment without hustle and bustle of traffic. Would highly recommend this home and looking forward to returning again soon."

  • A Villa above all others - literally !

    "This villa is excellent for many reasons, not the least of which is its location high on a hillside overlooking other villas below, part of the golf course, the tennis center off to the left , the ocean and the enchanting image of Vieques Island rising from the distant horizon. Spectacular views! The villa has three decks, but the two that overlook the view to the ocean will soon become your favorite places to hang out in this three level villa. A note on that : if stairs are an issue for you, this might not be the best place. That aside, the villa has what you will need for a pleasant stay; in addition to nicely decorated and spacious. Palmas del Mar is a nice drive 1 hour SE from San Juan. A lovely BIG development of many gated sub-developments, it is quite a nice asset for eastern PR. The development has 2 pro-designed golf courses, a huge tennis complex, a private Beach Club with pools, restaurant, and a great stretch of beach for walking. The pool in the villa complex at Palmanova Village is uncrowded and sits perched on yet another spectacular view. A short walk to the nearby Palmas Plaza gives you a small grocery store for the basic supplies, but also several small restaurants. Two are must-trys and highly regarded: La Pura Vida and a great Mexican place with great tacos and burritos - and oh yes, delicious Margaritas. Near the original Marina nearby are 3 great restaurants owned by an island celebrity chef. Be sure to try one, or all three places by Chez Daniel. Avoid eating at the Yacht Club unless you hear they have changed their restaurant management : our only disappointment during our stay. While walking the beach be sure to save time for some food and refreshments at the Bohio Bistro right on the sand. A great place to hang out to take in all the beauty that surrounds you at every glance. At the villa you can safely sleep with your windows open as there are no flying insects of any sort, and you can hear the rolling ocean waves in the distance, and until about midnight you will be serenaded by the melodious chirping of the national PR icon: the Coqui tree frog. You will be enchanted, and like we, vow to return to PR, and this great villa, for another stay. A short drive away is the Yunque National Rainforest - a must see if you like nature and hiking, in particular. Seniors: Your US National Park Service lifetime Senior Pass will get you in free (along with all the historic sites in Old San Juan walled city). Enjoy !"

  • Amazing Ocean Views - great breezes - PERFECT !

    "This condo exceeded all expectations. The accommodations were perfect - clean, well appointed and convenient. We loved the golf cart which was furnished. We were able to explore all the wonderful beaches the owner told us about. The kitchen was fabulous. The owners did not skimp on furnishing the kitchen. Thank you! The views from the balconies with the wonderful ocean breezes were therapeutic. We leave tomorrow. I don't want to go. I would highly recommend this condo."

  • Can't beat the view!

    "We loved our vacation in this villa. The view from back and side windows (it is a corner unit overlooking the water) is unbelievable and the property is very convenient to the beach and beach bar. The Beach Village section and Palmas Del Mar resort itself, is great with plenty of amenities. We sat on the beach in the sun, swam in the waves (we walked further down the beach to swim; the beach adjacent to Beach Village had red flags our entire stay, but the area 400 yards away was clear to swim- beautiful water), played tennis and worked out in the gym (extra fee involved for both), and rented a golf cart to ride around the entire resort. The resort's location is convenient to off site excursions, we spent a day hiking the rain forest, drove to Fajardo for the Miniboat snorkeling tours through Kayaking Puerto Rico (two thumbs way way up for this tour, can't remember when our family laughed so hard; this tour was a vacation highlight by far!!!), and drove to a tour to kayak the bioluminescent bay (used Yokahu Kayak Trips, fun guides). For the condo itself: The villa is a very spacious, with two bedrooms plus a loft area, plenty of room for our family of four (two teenagers). The kitchen is pretty well equipped, with decent quality pans, blender, . . . all of the basic necessities. We cooked all of our meals here (shout out to Puerto Rico's version of Whole Foods, "FreshMart" REALLY difficult to find, but worth it to stock up on your way to the resort). The view (did I mention the view?) is better in person than in the pictures. Postcard worthy. When we arrived, the AC did not work, resulting in water leaks in the bathrooms, but the management company was extremely quick in fixing everything and a pleasure to deal with (thanks Rebecca for all of your help!). Very nice people. The unit is older, but the owner is obviously freshening it up (villa runs true to the pictures). We were here during Spring Break, Easter week, yet it didn't feel crowded at all (only hint that it was a popular holiday was the number of golf carts zipping around). Many thanks to the management company and the owner, we had a wonderful vacation!"
