There are three full bathrooms. Two full bathrooms are located on the first level, one being an ensuite bathroom for the master-suite bedroom. The third full bathroom is located on the 2nd level.

We also provide high quality bed linens, fluffy white towels and luxury toiletries, high speed internet access, 55' LCD Television with Direct TV programming, Apple TV, Blue Ray DVD player and portable sound system.

Palma Vista is an exclusive and secure gated community, very private (only 30 Villas) that boasts two communal pools, a children’s play area and a gazebo. Palma Vista is adjacent to El Conquistador Resort and Las Cabezas de San Juan.

The panoramic views from the villa and the terrace are beautiful. From the front, Las Cabezas de San Juan, The Lighthouse, Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. From the back are impressive panoramic views of El Yunque National Rain Forest and the Puerto Rican mountains and beautiful views of the countryside and its flora. The sunset and sunrise from the top terrace are exquisite. Please view our video taken on the Penthouse Terrace.

One of the top beaches on the island of Puerto Rico, Seven Seas Beach is a popular beach for families and for snorkeling around the adjacent coral reefs, and various water sports. The clear waters are teeming with vibrant tropical fish around coral reef areas. Seven Seas Beach is also extremely safe for children, as offshore reefs protect the beach from waves and currents. The region is part of the National Parks System and is considered a 'World Blue Flag Beach'. To obtain the Blue Flag distinction, a beach must comply with a set of very strict standards in terms of water quality, safety and services, environmental education and information. Blue Flag Beaches are continually monitored for water and land environmental safety.

Seven Seas Beach, with spectacular blue waters and a beautiful sand beach is located at Las Croabas, Fajardo, Puerto Rico.

In addition to being located directly at Seven Seas Beach, which means you do not need a car to get to the beach, only minutes away and within easy walking distance, are the beautiful beaches of Playa Escondida (Hidden Beach), Playa Colora (Red Beach) and Governor's Beach, which are three of the most secluded beaches you can find. This means that it is a romantic spot, it's certainly a great place for snorkeling and just to relax. Playa Escondida means 'hidden' and Playa Colora 'hot/red beach' in Spanish. For it to be hidden, and virtually unused, it is in an out-of-the way place — you must walk about 20 minutes via a trail through a mangrove forest to get there. But the prize is worth it — finding a pretty, secluded strip of beach like this one is always a pleasure. Also, the Governor's Summerhouse is at Playa Escondida. Playa Escondida is very safe for snorkeling, swimming and/or just to contemplate the beautiful panoramic views in very calm waters.

Several nearby islands like; Icacos, Palomino and Palominito provide even more opportunities for fantastic snorkeling, hiking and exploring. Local companies or at local Marinas you can get and organize guided tours to take you for a fun day. Especially popular are the Kayak Tours of the Bioluminescent Laguna Grande, which is in Seven Seas Beach and next to Palma Vista Villa. Also 7 minutes by car and in the town of Fajardo ferryboats can take you to Vieques and Culebra, with more places to explore and World-renowned beaches to enjoy. Vieques and Culebra can also be reached by air from Ceiba Airport. Ceiba Airport, which is a 20-minute drive from Seven Seas and Palma Vista Villa, also services flights to other nearby island such as the US Virgin Islands. Air Flamenco operating from Ceiba airport offer flights to San Juan, Arecibo, Ponce and the islands of Culebra, Vieques, St Thomas, St Croix, Tortola, St Martin, Anguilla and the Dominican Republic. Seeing more of the island is easy when you take a side trip to see its natural attractions as a part of a day at the beach. A perfect example is El Yunque National Rainforest, which is 22.8 km (14.2 miles) from Seven Seas Beach and Palma Vista Villa. The variety of places with the best seafood you will enjoy is overwhelming using local fresh ingredients and produce and always a perfect service and a smile. From local traditional cuisine to international high-end restaurants at the Waldorf Astoria El Conquistador Resort, just 2 km (1.2 miles) from Palma Vista Villa.

About Kevin Sherratt

The Property is owned by Kevin and Jay

Kevin Sherratt purchased this villa in 2009

Why Kevin Sherratt chose Fajardo

Seven Seas Beach on the East Coast of Puerto Rico, where Palma Vista Villa is located, is in our opinion, one of the most beautiful parts of Puerto Rico, and is home to some of the best tourist attractions the island has to offer, such as El Yunque National Rain Forest and the Bio-Luminescent Bay. As well, the nearby Fajardo Ferry terminal provides easy access to the islands of Vieques and Culebra. The nearby Ceiba airport provides regular flights to the US Virgin Islands, Vieques, Culebra and San Juan.

The villa is quiet and peaceful - from the front you have wonderful panoramic views of the beach and ocean, from the rear you can see the Puerto Rican mountains and El Yunque National Rain Forest. There are some great local restaurants to dine and the villa is next to the El Conquistador Resort.

At this villa you do not need a car to get to the beach because you are literally at the beach!

What makes this villa unique

Peace. Tranquility. Privacy. Luxury living. Two Levels. 3,500 sq ft. Spacious, expansive Penthouse Terrace and large 1st Level Balcony. Light and airy with great views from all rooms. Stunning beach, ocean and rain forest views. Three full bathrooms and three bedrooms. 55' LCD TV - Direct TV. WiFi. Great local dining.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I Just wanted to thank you both for sharing your beautiful place in Fajardo. I was really impressed with the landscaping in the pool area and we often had the garden and pool completely to ourselves. It was a very relaxing vacation. Far from the hustle and bustle of Condado.



We discovered Hidden beach....and definitely found it pristine and beautiful. We also hiked towards the light house along Las Croabas beach and found that beach deserted and equally pristine. The Rain Forest was equally beautiful. We did venture into Old San Juan one evening for dinner but basically hung out in the Fajardo area. We took the boat out to Icacos Island for snorkelling as well....though our favorite beach for snorkeling was at Hidden Beach. The tour of the Mangroves and Light house was within walking distance of your place.



We explored the local dining.....El Estacion was our favorite. I also like Ensalada de Carucho...and liked the little place down the street on the right.......great for lunch.



We only did Breakfast in the Villa. We also did a Happy Hour on the balcony before dinner.....though never cooked dinner or used the grill.....always went out.



Having the wireless and flat screen with news etc was great as well. Thanks for the Music selection. Also the roof top area was a great place to hang out as well.....Marsha and I adopted that shower and bathroom as ours.



Best regards

Beautiful views of the coastline and mountains from the rooftop terrace!

VRBO Bear stayed here

May 28, 2014

The Palma Vista Villa in Puerto Rico is adjacent to a cove on Seven Seas Beach, offering striking views of the coastline and the mountains of the rainforest from a beautifully furnished rooftop terrace. It’s located close to many attractions, including the opportunity to lounge in the shade of a palm tree on virtually private beaches. Snorkel the coral reefs, tie up a hammock while enjoying local refreshments, and enjoy fresh local fare. Listen to the sounds of waves lapping and the little frog, the Coqui, sing in the sunset. The Palma Vista Villa is a comfortable and complete setting for a relaxing getaway without ever leaving the villa, but there is so much to do nearby! Explore the nearby rainforest for a casual hike or drive. Our bear family chose to hike to the top of the mountain and picnic while taking in breathtaking views of the rainforest rolling out to crystal blue shorelines. Later we explored the waterfalls that cascaded down the mountains of the rainforest. In the evening we took a starlit tour of the Laguna Grande and experienced a moonlit mangrove forest with bioluminescent water that left us in awe of the wonders of nature. Watch fish splash in phosphorescent blue schools across the lagoon and see your own hand light up the water, truly amazing. The white sand beaches of nearby Palamino Island and the isolated snorkeling grounds were something to behold. We dove with fish of all colors, discovered conchs and schools of brightly colored fish in the coral. The island is fully staffed with tropical drinks and food. Close to the Palma Vista Villa, you could choose to spend a morning or the entire day (as we did) with enough time to return to the Villa, relax and whip up some daiquiris with world famous Puerto Rican rum. The Villa is spectacular, with finely furnished indoor and outdoor spaces with everything you need to cook, relax, and refresh. It’s an incredible space, with both the opportunity for privacy and places to gather, eat, drink, enjoy or play. The décor is tasteful and comfortable. The kitchen has modern conveniences for preparing a fine meal for a bear family. The bedding and towels are high quality with everything you need for a beach day including a cooler, beach chairs, and a portable awning. The staff and owners were extremely professional, friendly, and welcoming. All of the information about the area and local knowledge was well documented and gave us information we needed to truly see the best aspects of the area. The owners and staff were willing and available to answer any questions we had. We hope to return and that you also take this opportunity to experience the luxury, adventure, and relaxation that we found at the Palma Vista Villa.

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Everything I Was Hoping For... AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5

If I had to distill my stay here into 3 words, it would read: "Definitely Coming Back!" This villa is by far the nicest in the entire Palma Vista complex. My entire trip was enhanced by how fantastic the accommodations are as well as the location. To begin with, the condo is spacious and beautifully decorated. It comes with all the amenities you could want from a resort hotel but with privacy and an authentically personal touch. The kitchen was so nicely appointed that it will make you WANT to cook. Both patios are so inviting that it makes you WANT to relax outside with a coffee, a drink or just to gaze at the beautiful views. And the views... so close that it makes you WANT to go outside and explore. Being able to walk to 3 different beaches, or walk through a forest, or take a short drive to the El Yunque Rainforest really made me enjoy the trip more than I had hoped for. It was especially helpful that I didn't feel suffocated by cloying, tourist-focused attractions. In short: I'll be back again. AND I'M STAYING HERE!

Comfortable, contemporary and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay with family at Palma Vista. Xiomara met with us upon our arrival and ensured that any concern we had was addressed. Kevin was accommodating and helpful with a couple of unanticipated extras. A couple of trips to Fajardo and we were stocked with food and wine and were able to kick back.

AMAZING, EVERYTHING YOU SEE AND MORE

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was nothing less then amazing. Kevin and Xiomara made us feel right at home. The location was perfect close to everything we wanted to do. The apartment itself was beautiful, very relaxing. I loved that the pool area did not close at a certain time so we could still use the pool after we been out all day. There is a charge for going over the electricity usage but I don't see how you can really go over. We left ac's off during the day while we were out and turned them on once we got back but they work so well you did not need to keep them on all night. Sand was the tricky part with having kids but we managed to not really get any in the apartment, by using the rinse tower near the pool. I loved the place and location I would definitely come back here whenever I do return to Puerto Rico.

Beautiful condo!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time at the condo the first weekend in August. It was beautifully set up. Gorgeous view. Super clean. Xiomara, the manager, was extremely helpful and pleasant. The owners were quick to respond to emails. The beaches near by are gorgeous. We hiked along the trail to hidden beach kept walking all the way to governers beach, that beach is gorgeous and we had the whole beach to ourselves. Overall it was a pleasant place to stay.

The property was excellent, amenities were well thought out; beach towels, beach chairs, shower soap

  • 5 of 5

It was a three bedroom very comfortable condo. Large master, very good kitchen and appliances. Bathroom were outstanding with walkin showers. The beach was walking distance. Lots of people on weekends at the beach but pretty empty during the week. Beach was nice had course sand. It had shallow slipper rocks you had to walk across to get in into the really warm water which was very calm. Lots of grass. Snorkeling was very good. Small fish hiding in grass and holes to explore. The swimming pool was like those you find at resorts just not as big. The property was gated and there was a wall around the front, very secure. Tropical feel lots of coconut palms and vegitation very nice. Top deck was extraordinary. Great views. Beautiful outdoor space with great furniture, extra bathroom and Bbq pit.

Very nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time renting a place on our own for vacation. I'm happy to say we had a very pleasant experience. Owner was very communicative and friendly. Location is great. Our unit was really great, very spacious for our family of 4. All furnished as well. The only reason I gave it a 4 vs a 5 was the pool. I felt like it could be a little bigger, that's all. Great experience overall. Recommend!
