OCEAN FRONT, STEPS TO BEACH, GREAT VIEW, THIS IS THE VIEW FROM VILLA-IT IS TRUE

Humacao Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Loft bedroom, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8, Internet, Ocean just steps away

This unit looks directly out to the Caribbean Sea and is literally steps from the beach. You can see and hear the waves while relaxing on the master bed, or sit on your private balcony overlooking the sea with Vieques Island on the horizon. No loading up the car or carrying coolers distances to the beach. Simply walk outside and you are on the beach. The condo is within Palmas del Mar, an access controlled community on the southeast Caribbean coast of Puerto Rico. It has 24 hour security . This is a 2 bedroom but really three as the loft has been made into a private bedroom equaling three bedrooms. It fully furnished with stone and granite counter tops, modern lighting, full size washer and dryer, and assigned parking. The unit has one king, two queens and a futon. You will be comfortable with central air conditioning, but you can shut off the air and enjoy the fresh ocean breeze. The kitchen is fully furnished with appliances and cooking utensils.

VIEWS: This is not a typical oceanfront condo where you can see the ocean if you crane your neck sideways. This unit looks directly out to the Caribbean Sea and is literally steps from the beach. You can see and hear the waves while relaxing on the master bed, or sit on your private balcony overlooking the sea with Vieques Island on the horizon.

Personalized Service : We would like to answer any question and make your stay as comfortable as possible. We can give you personal insider information directing you to secluded beaches, coves, the best places to hunt for shells, hike and snorkel. We can also direct you to locations for SCUBA, snorkeling trips, and day exercusions. The condo has easy access to highways for trips to the rain forest, San Juan, caves and docks to nearby smaller islands. Give us a call for more information and to reserve your dates. We would love for you to enjoy your stay at our condo.

Explore: You can lie on the beach, catch rays, and read a book. Or if you want a more active day, no problem - because you can surf, snorkel, explore hidden beaches, climb rocks, hike, and discover rare vegetation and flowers within a few miles. Puerto Rico is an island of diversity. There are many off shore island that are great to explore and get away. We can help you on whatever area you want to explore

Beautiful view! Relaxing! Heavenly !

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with our accommodations. This is our second time staying in this condo. The location to the beach is ideal :) The pictures posted on the site are very accurate. We will definitely return to this unit!

We were pleasantly surprised with the changes around the condo since our visit in Nov 2012. It looks like it has been painted, there are new bath towels, the sliding door has a great seal & there are new chairs to use on the beach!

We were a little disappointed in the beach this time as it was covered in mounds of seaweed. Unlike last time when a crew would be cleaning the beach daily, this time the crew only cleaned the beach near the hotel & beach bar. We did figure out that if we walked left on the beach, past the beach bar toward the point, that once we got past the point, the seaweed was gone & the water was as clear as glass! The pictures we took & the fun we had in the calm waters was wonderful :) Not sure why, but the beach in front of our condo seemed calmer & clearer on our 1st trip in November.

Activities we participated in: We went to Fajardo & did an electric boat tour of the Bio Bay. www.babybaypr.com. The tour was very nice. Didn't realize that water creatures could glow in the dark! Did a zip line tour at Yunke Zip Line Adventures. I am pushing 50 & this was so much fun! Not too hard on the bones or joints! Tour guides were great & the views of the rain forest were to die for. The younger folks used the Equestrian Center at Palmas & took the horseback ride on the beach. Loved it!

We ate several nights at The Beach Club Restaurant. Food was fresh & delicious. Open air restaurant w/a great atmosphere. Also ate at the pizza & Mexican restaurant in the plaza. Can honestly say that all the food was fantastic!

Complaints: Lamp in BR & living room didn't work. The one in the LR actually shocked me when I was trying to turn it on. The balcony light blew out one night when we were there. Didn't notify anyone to have it fixed. The shower upstairs is dripping & the tub is draining slowing. Could use new wash cloths to go with the new towels. We had a hard time cooking in the stainless steel pans; could use a couple of non-stick skillets for fast & easy cleanup. Would also suggest heat blocking, black out curtains for both BR's & upstairs balcony door. Would help the A/C cool down the unit.

Over all - LOVED this place! When we retire, we want to own a place like this.

Owner's Response: I have a property supervisor on property who promptly attends to any issues. The property supervisor was not notified by the renters of any problems or else it would have been addressed quickly. However, now that it has been brought to my attention it will be addressed. I keep the condo is nice condition and have attention to details. Once we are made aware of an issue it is addressed.

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5
My two young adult daughters and wife thoroughly enjoyed our week at this beach front villa. From the soothing sounds of the ocean every morning to the tennis and golf at the Palmas Del Mar clubs. It was the perfect remedy for the post holiday and winter blues. The villas location in Palmas allows for side trips to Vieques (which we took) and the rainforest. The 3rd bedroom loft was an additional benefit for my daughters privacy. This Beach Village community is adjacent to the hotel and from what I understand, was part of the initial construction at Palmas. In addition, Darrin was a superb host, sharing good information from directions to procedures to dining and cultural suggestions. I'd highly recommend a visit to the villa and Palmas in general.

Overall a Nice Stay with a Few Issues

  • 3 of 5
We had anice stay at Palmas Del Mar. The condo was overall well kept and located right on the beach as pictured. There were a few issues we had with the condo: Upon check-in we were told that the sliding glass door leading from the Master bedroom to the balcony overlooking the ocean was "off track" and we shouldn't use the door. That was a dissappointment. When we booked the condo we were told the property owner would allow us to use his golf cart kept at the property if it was not being serviced. At check-in we were told the golf cart was sold the previous week. This would have been nice to know ahead of time because this left us with out a golf cart over the Christmas holiday in a community where a golf cart is almost a must. The rental locations were closed/booked for a few days. The beach was beautiful to look at from afar and the ocean breeze was nice, however the beach needed to be cleaned. It was littered with small pieces of trash, we even found a hypodermic syringe. That was a bit alarming. Overall, Palmas Del Mar is a beautiful community with lots to do. We enjoyed our vacation, but would not come back for the beach.

Owner's Response: The feedback is helpful as I work hard to ensure guests have a nice place to stay that is truly steps to the beach. Prior to this guest, I had been in the condo and checked the sliding glass door. It is a double door with one door sliding left and the other right. The doors have new tracks and wheels and I learned on my last trip that when the door is opened with too much force it jumps the track and hard to lift back on. I informed that property manager to find a door specialist to adjust the door. The right side of the sliding door was on track and easily opened only the door sliding to the left was off track.
Unfortunately, my good gesture of offering my golf cart at no cost turned out to be a negative. I informed those I offered the cart that it depended on it being operational. When I was at the condo, I learned the golf cart was not running. I “sold” it at such a low price as a way to get it off the property. I apologize for not informing. The beaches in Palmas del Mar are daily groomed with machinery that picks up and sifts the sand. At the time of this rental, there had been stormy weather which unfortunately brings additional debris onto the beach. This is the first time I heard of a needle being at or near the condo beach. That is unfortunate as I lived in Palmas for 11.5 years and was frequently at the condo beach area and never heard of or saw a needle. Overall, people have a good experience with the ocean side condo. I take great effort to address matters when brought to my attention.

Excellent View and Service

  • 5 of 5
The property of Palmas del Mar was absolutely gorgeous and safe. The Beach Village condo is in fact steps from the beach. The pool had many new lounge chairs that were very comfortable and a wonderful place to sunbathe and cool off in the afternoon. A 45 minute drive to old San Juan and El Yunque was easy and I recommend these places to visit - had a wonderful experience! Restaurants at the Palmas Plaza are very good - we especially loved The Blue Hawaiian - oriental cuisine. If I decided to return to see more of Puerto Rico, I would definitely rent this condo again. My only complaint is the beach chairs were broken and not a very nice quality/size anyhow - an oceanfront condo should provide great beach chairs. Darrin was a great host and took us personally to a couple beach sites for sea glass while he happened to be on the island - so appreciated and thus trumps the beach chair disappoint and reason for 5 stars! I'm sure he will update the chairs. :)

Good villa, few issues

  • 4 of 5
The villa has a unique location in front of the ocean. You can admire the ocean from the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom. You can enjoy beautiful and peaceful sunrises from the balcony. Potential renters should be aware that the villa has three levels, which could present some challenges to elders or people with motor handicapping conditions. The levels also affect the efficiency of the a/c unit, making some bedrooms significantly hotter than others. The second bedroom receives the sun directly and could be uncomfortable, particularly during the afternoon and evening hours. We were not able to use the second bedroom for the first two nights because the window was broken and couldn't be shut completely, letting the cool air escape and making the temperature of the room extremely uncomfortable to sleep in during the hot summer nights. Their first attempt at fixing was unsuccessful, and it took longer than what we expected to solve a relatively easy issue to fix. Even after the window was fixed, you could feel the difference in temperature between the first and second level. The other issue was the opening and closing of the master bedroom's sliding door which goes to the balcony. It was very difficult to open and close since it did not run properly in its tracks. We also experienced a dissapointment when the golf cart we had planned to use from the owner was not available. We had to incur in additional expenses to rent one. Other than that, we enjoyed our time in Palmas. The villa is spacious and having a washer and dryer in the unit is very convenient. Palmas offers a great place to enjoy morning and evening walks around the complex. We enjoyed the pool more than the beach since the beach tends to be a little rough for swimming. Swimmers must be aware of potentially strong currents. The local restaurants are very good. We had dinner at Bistro Rico and at Tapas Bar, down by the Marina, and were very pleased with the quality of the food. The owner offers very good information about places to visit in Puerto Rico. The island will not disappoint anybody with its beauty and friendly people.

Owner's Response: For all inquiries, my goal is to give accurate information about the condo and Puerto Rico. I want people to be well informed and do not give sales pitch. Often people are surprised at my candor and appreciate accurate information. I want people to understand and have a positive experience. The condo has rented well and this renter was the first to inform of window problems in the second bedroom. As a result, sealing the windows has been addressed. I offered use of my personal golf cart at no extra charge as a courtesy. Prior to this rental, a person hit at tree with the golf cart and it was being repaired. The track on the master bedroom sliding door has been replaced by a professional installer and is working. The condo is well maintained and there is an English speaking property manager on site. I address issues when they are known.

Notes:
You can grab a chair, towel and head to the beach. It is just a few feet in front of your condo where the palm trees provide shade and the pelicans put on a spectacular aerobatic show. Grab a bucket and walk the beach to see what treasures the waves have brought. Shells, sand dollars, drift wood, sea glass all make great souvenirs and craft projects. As you explore the beach you may not be alone as sea turtles use it as their nesting ground. They come at night to lay their eggs and bury them in the sand before returning to the ocean. If you are fortunate you may see them hatch and crawl into the ocean. Though I have not had this opportunity, a friend had her blanket on the beach and suddenly small sea turtles were crawling by on their way to the ocean. There is much to be discovered, explored and enjoyed. Palmas del Mar has many beaches and coves which offer snorkeling, beach combing and exploring.
