Overview

About the property

House, 4-5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-12)

Our house is ideal for a vacation and we actually use it as such ourselves when we visit our family in Puerto Rico. It has a Relaxed, informal and comfortable feel to it and its located in the heart of Palmas del Mar Resort.

Our VERY FAVORITE part is the wonderful patio with expansive green space and the GORGEOUS private pool, it feels like your own little hotel. The house is located in the Villa Franca neighborhood (super family friendly and quiet) and since the house is a corner property it is a free standing unit with a private entrance and garage and has one immediate neighbor to the side who is actually the house's administrator and a dear family member.

Why Romina S Pulichino chose Humacao

VILLA PULICHINO is located in Villa Franca neighbourhood which pioneered OPEN PLAN LA-style houses = super spacious with amazing pool and patio areas. The house is centrally located inside Palmas del Mar Resort with no big hills to climb and great easy of access to all attractions inside and outside of the resort.

What makes this house unique

Gisella, local house manager lives full-time in the house adjacent to VILLA PULICHINO and she can assist with any potential needs or queries about the house or Palmas as she know the dynamics of the resort and where to find everything you need to have a great vacation. This is a great advantage because with most rentals you will have no face-to-face interaction with anyone in case of issues with the property or any other queries or questions.

Great home

  • 5 of 5

Romina made some great renovations to the home since we were there last. Home was very clean and felt like it was ours. Pool was always clean and the lawn was gorgeous.

Thanks for letting us enjoy your home as it was ours. Can't wait to come back.

One of the most relaxing vacations we've taken

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of two families of four and there was more than enough room for us to stretch out and lounge, and not be in each other's way. The pictures of the property, while great, do not do it justice. The house was perfectly setup for families, with it everything being on one floor and the open floor plan.

The playroom that was apart from the bedrooms was genius! Our kids woke up by themselves and went immediately to the playroom. This gave us a few extra minutes of sleep time - which any parent of young kids will know as precious. The pool was large and always warm. There are lights in and around the pool so we took advantage and swam at night as well.

The outdoor lounge area was great as well. We generally hung out there while the kids spent their days in the pool. We had a small initial issue with the propane tan for the BBQ grill but Gisella (who lives next door) took care of that right away. There's a separate bathroom outside by the pool to make life even easier. 2 of the 4 large bedrooms also have doors that directly open to the pool.

This was our second time staying in Palmas Del Mar and we still love the area. Palmas is made up of multiple neighborhoods and restaurants. They have restaurants, cafes, fro-yo, even a little market to pick up every day items (and wine & liquor). You technically do not have to leave Palmas for the entire duration of your trip if you don't want to.

If I have to list some cons, it would be the slightly dated kitchen. It's very functional and had everything we needed so we did not mind. The wifi was strongest in the playroom (where the main router was) but it was spotty to non-existent out by the pool. However, none of these are deal breakers and if anything the lack of connectivity helped us to better detach and enjoy our time there.

In summary, we would not hesitate to book this property again the next time we visit Palmas Del Mar. Thanks for a great and relaxing week!!

What a GREAT expeience! This home is equipped with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

First let me start by mentioning that that both the owner and property manager are a true delight to work with. The house was great and had everything you could possibly think of to make our stay amazing. In our party we traveled with 2 young ones and we were taken aback that the home was equipped with a play room that kept them thoroughly entertained. We stayed 5 days and had day trips planned, it was a delight coming back to what felt like OUR home. I want to come back every year now!!

Heaven on earth for adults and children.

  • 5 of 5

We love this house in Humacao! This was our second stay here. The renovations are great, it was so nice that two of the four bedrooms have doors that open onto the pool area. The pool and yard are perfect for kids and adults. We spent a lot of time sitting outside (large shaded area is wonderful) or swimming in the pool. The lights within and around the pool are pretty at night.

The house is close to the Palmanova Plaza- a good place to hang out in the evenings (some great restaurants). Also within Palmas del Mar is the gorgeous Crescent Beach, about a mile from the house. Rent a golf cart or you can drive and park near the Wyndham hotel ($ lot) and either enter the beach area by the beach restaurant (Beach Bohio) or you can enter further down the beach via a little path that fits only golf carts or pedestrians. The most beautiful part of Crescent Beach is about 150 yards to the left of the Beach Bihio as you look at the ocean.

Another great thing about this house is its location in Humacao. You can get to Fajardo in about 35 minutes (snorkeling tours, BioBay tours and ferries to Vieques and Culabre) and it is about an hour to Old San Juan and a little under an hour to the El Yunque rainforest.

Another wonderful amenity is having Gisella (the owner's sister) right next door. She is amazingly helpful and very nice.

My only suggestions for improving the already great experience would be if the owners could purchase a golf cart that the renters could use- that would be superb. Also I hear that the kitchen is going to be renovated and that is welcome news, as it needs a bit of an update

In summary, this is a fantastic house to rent at a very reasonable price. I wish I could live here! I look forward to many more stays. Thinking about this little paradise helps me get through the sometimes tough New England winters. A stay in this home is just what you need!

Owner's Response: Thank YOU Diane and family for being such amazing, courteous, impecable guests. Love what you wrote, not for what you say about the house, thou extremely faltered and pleased ;-) but the way you narrate your experience in PR in general. Wonderful and inspiring. I hope everyone reads your review as it has great turism notes. Regarading the golf car, OMG! I totally want to do that, and we did it for a while but then Palmas regulations oblige to insure all drives and it became a liability, specially for groups who had younger crowds, so we had to remove the cart :- |. Always looking forward to having you over, have a wonderful year. XO Romina & Gisella
