About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6


Welcome to our newly remodeled and new in the market luxury beachfront two level penthouse villa. The VRBO Bear recently stayed in our Villa and wrote an awesome review. Please read the Bear's review as well as other guest reviews and you will notice that everyone loves our villa and have rated it 5 stars.

Our Villa is located in Palma Vista condo and is right across the street from the famous Seven Seas Beach in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. It is only an hour’s drive from San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marin airport. The building is very safe with a secured gated access for both cars and pedestrians and we have never had a safety issue with our guests. Our penthouse villa has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, with a fabulous private rooftop terrace that will take your breath away! It has beautiful ocean and mountain views and a tropical breeze that will make you want to stay forever! Our large rooftop terrace is private and no one else has access to it except you. This villa was recently remodeled and professionally decorated to create a luxury ambiance that will help you relax and truly enjoy your stay.

Unlike other Palma Vista units, our Villa has a new dishwasher and Air Conditioning in all the rooms including the living room and we do not charge extra if you exceed a certain amount of electricity. In addition to our posted discounts, please inquire about our last minute discounts.

This is the newest and best two level penthouse villa available for rental in Palma Vista. It also has the best owners that treat you like family and always do whatever it takes to make sure you have the best vacation ever! The villa has brand new air conditioners for the entire villa as well as a new TV in each room. We also installed a new dishwasher, refrigerator, washer and dryer. It is tastefully furnished with one king sized bed in the master’s suite and a queen bed in each of the other two rooms. We have an air mattress available in case you need it. There is a bathroom in the master bedroom and the other two bedrooms share the second bathroom. There is a third full bathroom available in the rooftop terrace. The main living area has a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with a new dishwasher, dining table for six and a beautifully decorated living area. It also has a nice size balcony with gorgeous views. A baby crib and air bed is available upon request.

As much as we know you will love the downstairs, we are sure you won’t want to leave the second level private terrace which is only accessed from inside the Villa. All teak wood furniture living room set under the shade and four lounge chairs under the sun will give you plenty of options to stay and enjoy the villa. A round dining table for 6 gives you an option to have an unforgettable under the stars BBQ dinner or a wonderful sunset cocktail hour. An outdoor shower, BBQ and wet bar completes the offer. And best of all, we have the most beautiful view of the Seven Seas Beach and Las Cabezas Nature Reserve. Enjoy the breathtaking ocean and mountain views and gorgeous sunsets and sunrises. Enjoy a glass of wine or champagne while you gaze at the stars and have a breakfast with mimosas as you admire the magnificent view. Let the cool tropical breeze and the sounds of the birds captivate you and make this your paradise home in Puerto Rico.

The villa has a total of 3,500 square feet and has free high speed internet WiFi and cable TV with a 65 inch Smart TV for your enjoyment. It is in a private gated community with a nicely kept pool plus a children’s pool and playground. It also has parking available for two cars plus guest parking.

Seven Seas Beach is one of Puerto Rico’s most beautiful beaches and was designated as a Blue Flag beach which means it has met there strict standards for water quality. It has an offshore reef that breaks the waves and makes it easy to swim and go snorkeling so it is perfect for families with children. Please see a video of Seven Seas beach which is after all the pictures. In addition to Seven Seas, there are other beautiful beaches literally steps away. If you’d like a more secluded beach you can take a short hike among mangrove trees from Seven Seas to Playa Escondida (Hidden Beach), Playa Colorá or La Playa del Gobernador. Famous Luquillo Beach is only 15 minutes away by car and world renowned beaches like Flamenco Beach in the island of Culebra are a very short boat ride, catamaran ride or small plane flight from Fajardo Airport. Las Cabezas de Fajardo Nature Reserve, with its awesome bioluminescent bay is just minutes away. Here you can kayak under the stars and touch the waters that sometimes glow with bioluminescent organisms (please verify with tour operators that the waters are glowing now). The kayaking tour is a lot of fun but does require that you be in good physical condition because you have to paddle against the current. If you want to see the bio organisms without paddling you can go on a boat ride.

If you want more excitement visit the nearby islands of Culebra, Icacos, and Vieques which provide even more opportunities for fantastic snorkeling and swimming in crystal clear waters. My personal favorite is Culebra because of it's gorgeous beaches and great snorkeling. Please see video of catamaran excursion under owner information.

Another must see adventure is the El Yunque National Rainforest, which is only 20 minutes away by car. Take a hike, enjoy the lush vegetation, green scenery, go zip lining and bathe under a waterfall for an unforgettable tropical experience. El Yunque is one of the most biologically diverse of the national forests hosting hundreds of animals and plant species. Please see video of El Yunque under owner information.

If golf is your pleasure you have several options to choose from. Among them El Conquistador, a Waldorf Astoria Resort which is less than 5 minutes away, Coco Beach Golf Club, the host of the Puerto Rico Open, Rio Mar Resort, or the Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed Bahia Beach Resort and Golf Club, both in Rio Grande.

In terms of food offerings, there are many local seafood restaurants within walking distance like La Estación or Calizo. Make sure you try the mofongo. A little further into Fajardo is our favorite of the area, La Pasión por el Fogón. Delicious seafood and many local cuisine options. For a wonderful Caribbean lobster is La Parrilla II in Luquillo, where you will find the kiosks that sell coconut water and all sorts of fried savory goodies. We will be very happy to provide you with our recommendations of our favorite places to go.

About Jose

We are two sisters from Puerto Rico with our respective husbands who fell in love with all the attractions available in or near Fajardo. MariCarmen is the interior designer for this Villa.

Why Jose chose Las Croabas

This villa provides the perfect location to not only walk to beautiful Seven Seas beach, but also to private virgin beaches like Hidden Beach, Playa Colora and Governor's Beach where the governor has his beach house. Palma Vista also serves as the starting point for all the best tours and places the area has to offer. These include the Bioluminescent Bay kayak tour (next to Palma Vista), catamaran snorkeling tours, El Yunque National Rain forest, and Icacos and Palomino islands. You can also catch a cheap ferry ride from the Fajardo Terminal to Vieques or Culebra Islands and visit world renowned Flamenco Beach. Finally, there are many great restaurants close by that serve locally caught fresh seafood.

What makes this condo unique

From the moment we saw this villa we fell in love with it. The fabulous private second level rooftop has spectacular 360 degree views of the ocean and mountains with a nice tropical breeze that you can enjoy day and night. Here we could picture ourselves enjoying sunrises and sunsets, listening to the birds sing, while we relax and unwind.

This wonderful condo is just steps away from Seven Seas Beach in Puerto Rico.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Nov 16, 2016

I stayed at this wonderful condo on the eastern side of Puerto Rico with four of my closest friends and it was awesome. Our vacation was the best mix of relaxation and adventure. The owner, Jose, was in contact with us as soon as we booked our stay to make sure we had all the travel information we needed (nearby grocery stores, what kind of car to rent, etc.). When we arrived, the property manager, Anthony, was there to greet us and show us around. The condo itself is amazing (one of the nicest my human friends have stayed in) and steps away from Seven Seas Beach in Fajardo. The layout was very open and beautifully decorated with a beach theme. The king-size bed in the master was like sleeping on a cloud. There was no better way to start your morning than watching the sunrise from the beautiful rooftop terrace. Everything we needed was provided and we made breakfast every morning in the well-stocked kitchen before exploring. We relaxed at the nearby Playa Colora and Playa Escondida and spent a couple of days in the El Yunque Rainforest (a 30 minute drive) and old San Juan (Bacardi Distillery and Bioluminescent Bay Lagoon). We happened to be there during the November Supermoon, which we enjoyed from the beautiful rooftop terrace. I would bring my friends back here in a heartbeat!

Wonderful Unit

  • 5 of 5

The villa and the rooftop terrace was wonderful! My family and I truly enjoyed staying at the villa. The best thing about this villa is the book of information. The books suggestions on things to do in Puerto Rico, places to go, and restaurants to eat at was very helpful. The restaurant recommendations were absolutely amazing.

The villa is well situated only steps away from the beach and minutes away from kayaking, snorkeling, and many restaurants.

Jose was very helpful and answered all our questions. I would definitely recommend this place.

We recently traveled to Fajardo with our 3 children (ages 9/7/9 months). This place was amazing. First, Jose was more than attentive up to and during our stay. His on location helpers were also great help in getting checked in and recommending places to go.

When we arrived we opened the door to the lights on, air conditioner running and music playing. After 12 hours of travel this was the perfect way to start our stay. The home was so clean and well kept. The furniture, appliances, bedding, etc. were excellent quality. There were plenty of amenities there that we were not expecting. Beach chairs, floaties for the kids and adults, beach umbrella, etc. There was also left over kitchen supplies such as seasonings, oil, coffee, sugar, etc.

The roof top patio was amazing. It was so great to relax, read a book, drink coffee or enjoy an evening cocktail there.

The location was great. Close to lots of great restaurants, Wal-Mart, and, of course, just steps from the beach. I didn't believe it when I read other reviews but the beach is literally across the street. That beach was okay but we made the trip to Icocas Island and loved it.

I highly recommend staying at this condo. We traveled with family who stayed in another condo a couple doors down and theirs was not the quality that we had. We were so impressed.

Beautiful condo in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We decided to travel to Puerto Rico and picked Fajardo as our destination solely because of this rental. It was every bit as beautiful as it appeared in the pictures. We had six adults and the space was generous and comfortable for all of us. By far the best feature of this condo is the beautiful rooftop space. It was wonderful to wake up in the morning and sit up there with a cup of coffee or have afternoon drinks after a day at the beach. The grill was a wonderful addition in the utilized for dinner one night.

The condo complex itself was quiet and well-maintained the pool was a little small however we barely used it due to the beautiful seven seas beach directly across the street. we also had of left down the beach and through the trail and the man groves to both playa Colorá and Playa Escondido which are well worth the walk and are highly recommended to visitors.

The condo is also well situated around a number of fantastic restaurants and stores for groceries. For groceries we like Ralph's which was a short 5-10 minute drive. We tried a number of the restaurant recommendations in the book provided in the condo and we're not disappointed in any of them. My personal favorite was La Estacion.

The condo also came well-equipped with items that you would need for a day at the beach. It was nice to have a cooler, chairs and umbrella.

we also found that the condo was well situated to visit El Yunque however if you know try and go in the morning as it got quite busy in the afternoon. We want up stopping at Luquillo beach on the way which is also a great place. There are numerous food choices located along the road and drinks available at the beach.

Overall it was a wonderful vacation and we're already planning when we can come back. Highly recommend this place.

Fantastic condo in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We decided to travel to Puerto Rico with two other couples and ultimately chose to stay in Fajardo solely because this condo looked so nice. It did not disappoint. It was fully equipped with everything we could need (towels, beach chairs, cooler, umbrella, wifi). You can't beat the rooftop with it's wonderful views of the ocean either.

The condo is literally right across the street from Seven Seas Beach which was a nice small quiet beach. It's also a short walk through the mangrove trees to Playa Colorá and Playa Escondido which are well worth the walk. A short (3 minute) drive to the harbor you can get a water taxi out to Icacos which I highly recommend for a relaxing day trip. El Yunque was close enough for a day trip as well. However if you go, I recommend going early as it can get crowded and then stopping at Luquillo Beach on the way back.

The owners provided many great restaurant recommendations which made trying to decide where to eat much easier. We tried El Estacion, Pasion por el fagon and Calizo which were all delicious and a quick 5 minutes ride away.

Overall we were thrilled with then rental and are already planning when we can go back.

Great unit in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying near seven seas beach and this was our favorite rental so far. The condo is nicely furnished and the rooftop terrace was a great place to relax when we weren't at the beach or out exploring. Easy access to grocery store, restaurants, El Yunque, etc. We'll definitely be back.

Rooftop Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience and beautiful home to make memories in. This condo was absolutely a pleasure to enjoy the island in. It was very well decorated and it had everything you needed to feel at home. All the bedrooms were cozy, cool and exceptionally clean. Our favorite spot was the rooftop and views. We had my cousin who lives near Fajardo come for a bbq and we loved spending time with the family at Seven Seas beach across the beach. The rooftop is perfect for the views and just taking in the essence of food and family. Anthony was awesome to work with and very responsive. Looking forward to coming back!
