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.

4 families from Alaska; 2 families from North Carolina. We had a fabulous time & the accomodations were great! The pool & spa were a pleasure for us all.

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.
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).
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!!
