About John Burn/ Maria Burn

We are Maria and John Burn... an interior designer/architect married to an international marketing globetrotter. Maria is from Venezuela and I am a Puerto Rican native. We found our perfect escape hideaway, this is our personal vacation unit and want to share the joy with select group of friends and guests. We have four girls that are our pride and joy. All of us love the beach and could not be more blessed to have this place.

John Burn/ Maria Burn purchased this apartment in 2013

Why John Burn/ Maria Burn chose Puerto Rico

From the moment you pass the security gates of this protected 2,750 acres of beautiful paradise something magical happens...you forget stress, work, cold weather, airports and enter nirvana. Our family found this hideout nearly 10 years ago and finally we made it part of annual migratory ritual.

What makes this apartment unique

Ocean views from all three bedrooms and living room. Balconies in all bedrooms. Steps away from the beach. Close enough to San Juan, The Junque ( rain forest) Gilligans Island, Camuy river and caves, the flourescent bays, Monkey Island all available to you and only a phone call away.

Comfortable, modern, sun filled unit steps from the beach

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this comfortable, clean, nicely renovated and well equipped Beach Village condo for the month of February. It is located on the second floor, facing the golf course and the sea. Sunrise was spectacular every morning and the unit was filled with natural light all day. The best beach in Palmas is just steps away. When we arrived there were some issues that needed to be addressed. The property manager quickly took care of them, and was readily available throughout our stay. I highly recommend this condo and hope to return in the future.

Great location and home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week at John and Maria's condo in Palmas Del Mar. Having explored the entire community, I can honestly say that theirs is the perfect location with such easy access to the beach, pool and Beach Bohio! I would not want to stay anywhere else. John and Maria were very responsive to questions before our trip. Check-in and check-out with their agent was seamless. The unit itself is clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our family, including beach chairs, towels and kitchen supplies. Everything is totally as pictured, beautiful and comfortable! Having adult children, we enjoyed the extra space of a condo, especially morning coffee on the balcony with a great view of the ocean. Palmas is a lovely community, and we really appreciated all of the restaurant recommendations; there are plenty of great places to eat! La Pescaderia was a favorite; we also enjoyed Pura Vida and the Tapas Bar. Palmas is also conveniently located for exploring other areas of Puerto Rico, like El Yunque and Vieques. We could not have asked for a better vacation and highly recommend staying here.

Very Nice Condo. Great Location.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Palmas del Mar. The condo overlooks the putting green and there is a view of the ocean from the master bedroom and the family room. There is a balcony off of the master bedroom and family with a small table and two chairs for people to sit outside and enjoy the view. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking equipment. There is a full size washer and dryer.

The only downfall of the trip was the noise from the neighbors and the other visiting guests, especially some dogs directly below us. We arrived on a Thursday for a seven day stay. The first night was somewhat noisy. By Friday and Saturday night, it was very loud outside of our condo. Saturday night in particular had its challenges. There is a golf cart/walking track that swings around the lower portion of the building, and it is next to the putting green and the entrance to the beach. There were at least 10 golf carts parked along this path with 2-4 occupants per golf cart with loud music playing from each golf cart, and they were all congregated below our bedroom (the master bedroom) having a party. The curview in the complex is 2 a.m. so we moved to one of the upper bedrooms and transplanted one of our children to the other bedroom, which has twin beds. We were able to get some sleep after moving bedrooms.

Overall, we enjoyed the condo. The pictures are accurate. The owners are very pleasant to deal with and always responded to our emails on a timely basis. The only drawback was the noise the first three nights. Easter Sunday until the following Thursday were much quieter. So, I am not sure if the noise is a weekend occurrence or if we just happened to be there at an extremely busy time.

Owner's Response: Dejar guest, Thank you so much for staying with us and your review. This reviews helps to be better. We are glad you enyoed our Villa. Spring brake unfortunately was happening during your stay , we wish you would have let us-or in land manager.-know for the condo/area has a quiet policy- and the local police from Palmas Del Mar can be notified and respond to it. Spring brake certainly can get loud with all the kids on vacation. We look forward to having you again in Palmas Del Mar.

Perfect beach location

  • 4 of 5

I travelled to Palmas del Mar with my husband, two sons (ages 3&1), and in laws. The condo was just the right size for us all as we spent most of our day outside enjoying the beach, pools, turtle pond, playground, and ptercarpus forest. We couldn't have been in a better location- the beach just steps away with a lively beach/snack bar, the Wyndham pool, as well as the community pool. The condo was well appointed with everything you'd need to cook all meals, but we also took advantage of the number of yummy restaurants in the area. Having two toddlers, we loved that the condo was even stocked with plenty of beach toys, floats, towels, and bug spray. We didn't take advantage of the golf or tennis - but it looked amazing. I will say that the beach waves were a bit too rough for the kids to swim in, but they were happy jumping in the waves with the adults and preferred the pool for swimming anyway. John and Maria were always super responsive to any questions I had, and the onsite contact was great as well.

Beach Village Gem

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Maria's condo in February 2016 and found the condo to be well appointed, comfortable and perfect for our family of five's needs. The views are excellent, the furnishings are lovely and new and the condo was kitted out with everything we could need for our five day stay. If we return to Palmas, we would not stay anywhere else.

Palmas del Mar

  • 5 of 5

The property is just as lovely as the description. We were a family of six, including a toddler and had plenty of space and privacy. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable. The master bedroom had a great view of the ocean, as did the living room. The living room and dining area were spacious and well-decorated.

The apartment on the second floor is quiet and a one minute walk from the beach and the beach restaurant. The swimming pool for the complex is a three minute walk. Tennis courts and a children's playground are five minutes away by foot. The golf course is less than 2 miles away and was uncrowded on weekdays. Twilight hours which are discounted begin at 1 pm.

There are numerous restaurants in the area which were pretty good. I'd recommend a 15 minute drive into town for food supplies. The local grocery store in the Plaza didn't have much in terms of selection.

This was our third stay in Palmas del Mar over the past 17 years. The resort is safe and well taken care of. Each housing complex has it's own security gate and their is a main security gate at the entrance to the whole devbelopment.

The hosts, Maria and John Burns, are lovely people and respond quickly to emails. The on-site manager is friendly and helpful.

The drive from the airport is an hour, without traffic. I'd recommend using a GPS. There should also be standard written directions and a map as back up. Arrange for the manager to meet you at a security gate,

The members of my family have done significant traveling. We expect a lot from our vacations, including accurate advertising. This property lived up to those expectations and was as advertised. We all had a wonderful time.
