Overview

Humacao House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 1 game room, 4 full Bathrooms, 1 half Bathroom, Sleeps 16

A remarkably private home located in the most exclusive area of Palmas del Mar with many first-class amenities...a large Swimming Pool with a Jacuzzi surrounded by lush vegetation, Decks for sunbathing, a Private Jacuzzi, a Game/TV room with a Pool Table, etc. You'll love to Grill by the pool in our stone BBQ and Wet Bar with refrigerator. A Modern Spacious Kitchen awaits you with a cozy Bay Window and an island with comfortable barstools that will help keep the party going and the chef accompanied. The Master Bedroom with a private porch and a romantic round Jacuzzi for two is unique. Of course the house is fully air conditioned. Finally, the ocean views from the pool and the second and third floor balconies are magnificent! Add the amenities that Palmas has to offer and you can sense how fantastic this place and your vacation will be. This house was built with all the comfort and amenities that an Owner ('me') felt were indispensible for the Good Life. ENJOY I

The technical amenities of the house: Our home is equiped with several technical amenities which can come in handy if for some reason (not common) there is a system wide problem with the utilities. It has a large (30 amp) generator that will power the whole house (including most of the airconditioners) in the event of a power outage. This generator has an automatic transfer switch which will turn it on automatically when the power goes out and turn it off when it comes back. We also have a 25,000 gallon cistern that can be used if the water supply from the water utility is shut down (again not common ). The kitchen is equipped with a reverse osmosis water filter which supplies puritied water to the sink in the kitchen and to the refrigerator (no need to buy water at the store!). While the above facilities may not be necessary, they could come in very handy should the unlikely situation arise. Again this house was built as a home for my family and I once was a Boy Scout whose motto is 'Be prepared'.

Garden and green areas: Our house has 4,000 sq. ft of living area and is built on a one half acree of land bordering a very large green area. We grow on the property Orange, Great-fruit, Guava, Mango, Banana and Lemon trees. We also have beautiful orquids by the pool. The fruit from these trees attract all kinds of birds which chirp you to sleep and to wake up.(No roosters, thank God). We also border a large green area with lush vegetation and even a stream. A very special area for those who love the outdoors.

About Jose Beauchamp

Born and grew up in P.R. Studied at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Earned a law degree from the University of P.R. and a masters degree in law from the University of London. I retired when I was 55 years old except that I currently run the rental of my house, which sometimes is a full time job!! I live with my girlfriend, Lissette, who is the editor of the magazine Live and Life in Palmas. You can go to the magazine's web site and find out more about our resort at llpalmas.com She also has developed a web site about Palmas (seepalmas.com) which gives the tourist an excellent view into the resort. We live in Palmas (of course), about one mile from the rental property.

Jose Beauchamp purchased this house in 1996

Why Jose Beauchamp chose Humacao

I actually had the house built for my family with the idea of living in it, which I did for 16 years. That is why the house has so many amenities (it was not built as an investment but as a home for me and my family). The reason I chose Palmas del Mar to build my house was that It was, and is, a resort combined with a community. It is by the sea, with beaches, and other amenities like golf, tennis, horsebackriding, boating, etc. It has two marinas with sailboats for hire, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, not to mention the 12 restaurants, hotel with casino. In short, it is a little town where many of the homeowners travel by golf carts or jog on the paths. What's not to like? Oh, I forgot security. It is a gated community with security guards constantly patroling the areas. Palmas is such a special place that we have just bought a condo by the beach to rent short term(listing .3614337).

What makes this house unique

The location of the house gives it a beautifull view of the ocean and the island of vieques. The living area, including the rooms face the eastern view and most of the time will receive the tradewinds which come from the east. Kids love this house with the pool, jacuzzi and game room. I guess I'm basically a kid too because I love this house also!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

.The house was great, we had an amazing time. Thank you Jose, Lissette, Rudy and Vilma for helping us feel right at home. We enjoyed the stay at the home. The house was spacious and felt comfortable. Thank you for a great 6th year Anniversary! Hope to stay connected.

Spacious home

  • 4 of 5
The home was beautiful! Rudy, the manager of the property, was wonderful! He was helpful and always available to answer questions/address concerns that arose during our stay. Jose, the owner of the house, was also very nice and accommodating. There was plenty of room for our group of adults and children. The pool was well maintained and was enjoyed by our whole family. We loved hearing the wildlife every night before we went to bed.

AWESOME OWNER AND AWESOME HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Jose:

I wanted to thank you again on behalf of the Wolf Pack we had a great time. Your house was awesome and I will be recommending it to others who have already asked me for the information.

We really loved the place- it was comfortable and spacious for all of us. The pool and the jacuzzi and the view were awesome. The rooms were big and the house was nice and clean. We enjoyed all the special touches in the house.

We also wanted to also thank Rudy and Vilma for their professionalism, they are really awesome people! Thank you and Lissette for taking the time out to meet us and greet us and recommending things to do.

Thanks again for a wonderful vacation home- we hope to see you soon!

Great views but not an ideal vacation spot

  • 3 of 5
I selected this place for our summer vaction based on the reviews. However the house did not meet my families expectations. We stayed with another family and the house certainly fit everyone. However, this house is showing age in terms of rental time. It wasn't one specific item but many small items that does not make a comfortable place to stay. From a kitchen that needs to be badly renovated, poorly working AC unit in the family room, to a master bathroom that has no air conditioning and a ant problem. If you are looking for a place that makes you feel pampered this is not it. If you are looking for golf vacation for bunch of guys then this place would be perfect.

In addition, the location was not ideal for our vaction - I was looking for the "beach" resort experience, but Palmas del Mars has no accessible beach! What little beach that is there is fairly private and hard to get too. On top of that, signs are posted all over the place alerting your not to swim because of riptides. There is a beach resort but it has no beach and essentially is a pool area that will cost you $15USD/day per person. This forces to drive quite alot to get to a beach and I can't say drining in PR is fun.

I will say that Rudy responding to each our requests and doing business with the owner was easy.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at our house. Unfortunately, I didn’t understand some of your observations. For example you state that Palmas has no accessible beach and that what little beach there is, is private. Palmas main beach is over 2 miles long and there are several other beaches, none of which are private because all beaches in PR are public by law. Yes, there are rip tides as in all beaches but I’m glad that they post the areas with riptides for your safety. The main beach has calm areas and areas with waves. As in any tropical area, these can be large or small depending on the season and the weather conditions. You can go right up to the beach if you rent a golf cart, which I recommend to all my guests. Otherwise, you have to park your car and walk a small distance to the beach. Finally, as you correctly mention, the Beach Club, being a private membership club, has the prerogative to charge an entrance fee. Fortunately, our house has a large pool, Jacuzzi and game room with pool table, dart game and hockey game, as well as a TV, refrigerator and grill with a bar which should make it unnecessary to pay the entrance fee, if you consider it unreasonable.
Regarding the house, you are right, a renovation of the kitchen is in order and is planned as soon as summer season is over. The family room, you state, has a poorly working A/C unit, however the family room has no A/C but a ceiling fan which most people find more than adequate. The master bathroom you point out has no air conditioning. That I know of, not too many bathrooms in P.R. have air conditioning. Again, our ceiling fan keeps the bathroom well ventilated. I may add that our house has 8 new inverter A/C units! Regarding the ants, realize that we are in the topics and even though our house is fumigated regularly, the critters show up every one in a while. A call to my manager I’m sure would have solved the problem.
Be assured that we will take all the necessary actions to correct any deficiencies that you have addressed.
Again, I thank you for your opinion, and I’m truly sorry that you did not enjoy yourself as the other 18 previous reviewers did.

Amazing Home, Wonderful Vacation!

  • 4 of 5
13 members of our extended family flew from Chicago, DC, St. Louis & San Francisco for a wonderful week at Jose's beautiful home. Believe me, it was well worth the trip. Everyone from the one year old to his grandmother enjoyed the home immensely. We swam in the pool, made wonderful meals in the kitchen and generally just enjoyed ourselves. We had a great time a El Yunque and Loquillo beach (Don't miss the food stands!). Rudy Sr. & Rudy Jr were so attentive and helpful for the few little problems we had (broken door key & icemaker). Rudy Jr. recommended a wonderful chef, Chef Chango, who came in a made a wonderful Puerto Rican meal for us. The bacalao was just like my husband's family makes! You can not go wrong with this home. We can't wait to come back again!

Perfect Easter Stay

  • 5 of 5
If you have been thinking of staying here, stop thinking about it and book your get away ASAP! Where do I start when everything was perfect! Pictures just paint a small picture of what Jose's house has to offer as well as the beauty of Palmas Del Mar. The amazing view of the ocean and Vieques in the distance. The huge pool with hot tub to just relax at the house. Game room just steps away for the kids, and I can't forget the hammock for that after lunch nap. There is plenty of space for a big group of family or friends. The master bedroom and bath was "my wife's dream come true" too bad we are back to reality now! O how I miss Puerto Rico! The other bedrooms were just as spacious with their own uniqueness to detail. There really is so much to offer here. The many beaches you will discover are spectacular, my family and I have been staying in Palmas now for 5 years and still have not explored every beach within the resort! The beach club with water slides for the whole family is a great way to spend the day. El Yunque, the US's only rainforest is less than an hour away with plenty of places to eat at Luquillo Beach which is 10 minutes from the rainforest. This is a must while in Puerto Rico!!! At the base of the rainforest is El Barbacoa a Puerto Rican style BBQ spot that sits along the River is great for lunch too Thursday through Sunday. East Island excursions is about a half hour away for snorkeling trips to Flamenco Beach on the island of Culebra. They provide transportation which is very affordable as well as reliable. These are just a few things to do. Now back to Jose's property and his kind heart for making my families stay on Easter everything we expected it to be and more. Jose was not only very professional but very personable, kind and caring! Thank You to both Jose and Rudy for taking the time to meet my family and sharing many laughs and great stories!!!! We will see you next April. God Bless! Love Always, The Rossi's
