Comfortable, exquisitely decorated, 2013 sq. ft., beachfront villa in the Crescent Cove complex in Palmas Del Mar, 200 yards from 2 miles of unspoiled, impeccably-maintained beaches.
Ensuite baths in every bedroom provide for your and your traveling companions' privacy and convenience. With many thousands of dollars in locally made, artisan-crafted rattan furniture, many original oils, giclées and serigraphs on the walls and maintained to a very high standard, this villa really is a second home, not the typical cookie-cutter, low-budget, short-term rental property and our many guest reviews attest to that. Indeed, the two largest property management firms in Palmas consider our villa the best rental property in Crescent Cove.
Speaking of Crescent Cove, if you are looking for a true beachfront location, Crescent Cove and our 'cousin' complex Crescent Beach which is located 300 yards further east are the only two truly beachfront regimes in Palmas Del mar. Being the first two such 'villa or apartment' complexes to be developed, they were situated in the best section of beach in Palmas, semi-protected from the prevailing easterly trade winds by Candelero Point. Between October and late March and as the prevailing winds are more northerly, our beach is usually flat-calm. As the winds shift towards the more easterly Trades in late spring and summer, our beach may not be flat calm, but there will be many days of the late Spring-to-Fall season where the Crescent Beach and Crescent Cove's beachfront really is the only swimmable area of the 2 miles of beaches inside the Palmas Del Mar grounds. And of course beach lounges are available from the Crescent Cove staff for you to take to the beach just a few yards away.
The villa's southeast exposure allows its penthouse terrace to be in shadow from mid-afternoon on, making it a lovely place to enjoy the stunning views of the courtyard, pool and beach area.
Renting through us and our on-site property manager Oceano Properties provides you nearly unlimited access to all of Palmas Del Mar's leisure and athletic attractions including Palmas Del Mar's award-winning Tennis, Golf and Beach Club facilities at significantly discounted rates. Golf carts, concierge services, all forms of meal and housekeeping services are available as well.
Palmas Del Mar is located 50 minutes from San Juan making a day drive to San Juan a breeze. Palmas is also one hour from El Yunque -the Caribbean National (rain) Forest and Las Croabas where you can enjoy all sorts of day sails/outings to the many cays that dot the east coast of the island and the Cabezas de San Juan Bio-Bay.
In short, Palmas perfectly situated for you to enjoy almost all of what Puerto Rico has to offer without the mad hustle and bustle of San Juan proper. If you are looking to enjoy a relaxing resort atmosphere within one our of almost all that Puerto Rico has to offer, Palmas will be as good as it gets.
If you are looking for fabulous golf, Palmas' two golf courses are considered among the finest in Puerto Rico. The old course - the Palm Course - was designed by Gary Player and was updated in 2002. The front nine and back nine are totally different with the front nine being narrow & very technical -an iron course- and the back nine huge, wide open and long, with many elevation changes. Some holes have truly spectacular views of the beach and coastline.
The new course - Flamboyán - was designed by Rees Jones and finished in 2001. It is generally a long, difficult, wide open course with several long Par 4s and Par 5's that play directly into the teeth of what is usually a 15-20 mph breeze. I jokingly call #7 - a 540yard, slightly uphill Par 5 that plays directly into that wind- the only Par 6 in Puerto Rico.
Besides fabulous golf, Palmas Del Mar has several miles of golf cart trails and walking paths, an equestrian center, 22 tennis courts and a fully-equiped fitness center -all accessible at guest of member rates.
The villa's bedrooms will sleep six and we can accommodate a 7th guest with roll-aways that can be placed in any room. With each bedroom's en-suite, you and your traveling companions will have privacy when desired and enjoy the villa's spacious common areas when mingling
