Property description

Vista Montemar is a comfortable two story house overlooking the Caribbean Sea in a serene and secure gated community. Two spacious L-shaped balconies and a rooftop terrace afford panoramic views and the best in outdoor living. Ceiling fans throughout the house and balconies, plus a/c units in bedrooms and kitchen add to the comfort provided by the ocean breezes. Bask in the gorgeous tropical flora and be lulled to sleep by the sounds of coquis (Puerto Rican tree frogs) and island birds. The kitchen comes fully equipped, the house is tastefully furnished, and the laundry room has a washer, dryer, sink and counter space.

Each of the three bedrooms has its own door leading to the second floor balcony, and window shades to block the early morning sun, if desired. The centrally located upstairs bathroom is shared by all three bedrooms. Ample outdoor seating is provided in both covered verandas. A spiral staircase leads to the rooftop terrace, where additional patio furniture and a huge umbrella create a relaxing environment in which to enjoy a cool drink amid stunning panoramic views by day and a starry sky by night.

The property is beautifully landscaped with all manner of tropical flora, including flamboyant trees (the official tree of Puerto Rico) and amapolas (the official flower). There is plenty of parking space within the gated property.

Our resident cat, Vera, is strictly an outdoor cat that lounges on the balconies and is fed twice daily by caring neighbors. Vera had been taken to a new home on the other side of Yabucoa, but found her way back to Vista Montemar after a year, and no one has the heart to relocate her again. Guests to Vista Montemar have welcomed and befriended Vera.

Car: Necessary

El Cocal Beach and Country Club is a peaceful and secure gated community with private access to El Cocal Beach and stunning views of both mountains and the Caribbean Sea. The beach is a two-minute walk from the house. Palmas del Mar Resort is less than 15 minutes away and has a golf course, casino, and restaurants. El Nuevo Horizonte Restaurant is about two kilometers away from the entrance to El Cocal Beach and Country Club (turning left on PR-901), and offers a spectacular view of both the Atlantic Ocean (including Vieques Island) and the Caribbean Sea. El Yunque Rain Forest is about 40 miles away and is a must see, as it is the only rain forest in the U.S. Forest Service. Plan a hike to La Mina Falls and swim in the pool at the base of the waterfall or take in the panoramic sights from a top the observation tower. For more information on El Yunque visit http://www.elyunque.com/about.html. The Bio Luminescent Bay at Fajardo is about a half hour drive to the north eastern corner of the island. Reserve your tickets in advance for kayak or motor boat tours and select a moonless night for best enjoyment. The world-famous Luquillo Beach is in between Fajardo and El Yunque on the northern shore of the island. Old San Juan, with its forts, cobblestone streets, and quaint cafes, is another must see, and is only 46 miles from Vista Montemar. To visit Puerto Rico's second largest city, Ponce, the scenic coastal route is recommended. There you can visit such tourist attractions as the famed firehouse in the plaza, the Serralles mansion, and la Cruz de la Vigia monument. Also, weekends at la Guancha are very festive.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My husband and I fell in love with Vista Montemar at first sight. It was exactly what we were looking for--a quiet, relaxing place away from the hustle and bustle of San Juan, yet conveniently located close to shopping and restaurants, and only a 40 minute drive from the airport. I am Puerto Rican, and though my husband is not, he loves the island and its people, sights and culture as much as I do. We want to share our beautiful home with you and allow you to experience this island paradise in what we consider to be the perfect setting.

Why the Owner Chose Camino Nuevo, Yabucoa, Puerto Rico:
El Cocal Beach and Country Club was established fifty years ago to create a community of residents dedicated to preserving the flora and fauna of the area. The southeastern corner of Puerto Rico has unique vegetation and wildlife. The variety of coqui, or Puerto Rican treefrog, that lives in this region makes a distinctive sound, stretching out the ending sound. All coqui frogs sing their name, 'Coqui! Coqui!' But the variety of coqui found in Yabucoa sings, 'Coquiiii.' We were also thrilled to find out that marine turtles lay their eggs on our beach between the months of March and June! A local conservation group watches out for and protects these turtle nesting areas.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If the party scene is what you want, this property is not for you. El Cocal Beach and Country Club is a gated community that virtually shuts down after 8 or 9 p.m. and provides the peaceful tranquility that many vacationers seek. Usually, the only sounds you will hear are those of the birds and coquis serenading you to sleep at night. Wake up refreshed and ready to enjoy a cup of Puerto Rican coffee and a view of the azure Caribbean Sea from the second floor balcony. Come and enjoy nature at its best at Vista Montemar!
