Absolutely Beautiful!



Review submitted: June 2, 2014 Date of arrival: January 21, 2014



What a beautiful home! The pictures do not do it justice; it is even nicer in person. The home and beach (which is steps away) are absolutely beautiful. Very quiet and nice community. The beach is almost private. This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and we really enjoyed ourselves, there is so much to see and do. The people are so friendly, the island is beautiful and the weather is perfect! The home is very clean and has plenty of space to relax and enjoy both inside and out. Norma is the sweetest person in the world! We got lost coming from the airport late at night and after driving around for hours we finally called Norma at 4am!!! Norma answered right away and stayed on the phone with us until we were at the home and inside. We definitely recommend this home for your Puerto Rico vacation and cannot wait to go back again ourselves! Thank you again Norma!

Beautiful home by the beach

  • 5 of 5

I spent Thanksgiving with my family at this house and we had a wonderful time. The house is clean, comfortable and fully stocked with everything you can think of. The owner has thought of the smallest details to make your stay enjoyable - everything from toiletries, to kitchen utensils, pots & pans, coffee pot, beach chairs & towels, suntan lotion, even aloe vera in case you stay out in the sun too long! :-) The pool is great, they have a big bbq grill you can use (which we did), they have DVD's you can watch...the list goes on and on. There is a TV in every bedroom which is nice if you need a 'break' away from everyone. The neighborhood is very quiet, the beach is literally steps away. I recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a nice home away from home during their vacation.

Wouldn’t change a thing!

  • 5 of 5

The property at Villa Palmira was extremely clean, stocked with essentials and 100 yelards to the ocean. Sitting on the front porch drinking coffee while gazing at the ocean was a welcomed change of pace. Humacao is just a few minutes away and has all the major stores, yet the property is “away from it all”. The neighborhood was safe, friendly and quiet. Norma was responsive to all of our needs and even emailed us to note a small road construction issue that might make our return to the airport a little longer. I highly recommend this property. We will definitely return.

The best

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week at Villa Palmira. Since the arrival, Norma, she was concern to make our vacations were the best. The house filled our expectations, spacious, clean, and all the necessary equipment for the kitchen, bathrooms and pool. The enchanted pool, the house steps away from the beach and the location was excellent for traveling and enjoying the rest of the island. I recommend this house and I hope to enjoy it in my next vacation in Puerto Rico

Laid-back Leisure in Humacao

  • 5 of 5

A first-timer to Puerto Rico, I flew into San Juan, rented a big, 7 passenger van and drove the hour or so, south and east to Humacao. Coming from Texas, I'm happy to say the roads are pretty good and the drivers even better! I'd travel back to the airport in San Juan the next day to pick up the rest of my family - son, daughter-in-law, 3 grandsons - so, getting to the house at Villa Palmira a day ahead was great! Gave me some time to buy groceries (Ralph's Supermarket and Walmart are a short 10-min drive away in Humacao) and get settled in. Although many parts of the island are still in recovery, Norma made sure EVERYTHING was easy and available to make our stay one of the best family vacations ever! I only get to see my family once a year, so this was pretty special. The house has 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths - AND there's a bonus area that worked out really well for my oldest teenage grandson; he loved having his own private space with couch and double-bed. JUST A NOTE: Although the beach is just 50 feet away, and you can hear/see the beautiful Sargasso sea waves lapping the sand (it's visible from the porch), the dry, brown seaweed (sargassum) this time of year is 3-times worse than normal and made it impossible for us to swim at that spot. Sorry to say, this is probably due to shifting sea currents (warmer water) or increased nutrient sources as causes for the abundance. But the small beach area just above the waterline is lovely for sitting and gazing out to sea. Regardless, there's the private, backyard pool; we used that a lot! What a wonderful feature with a small waterfall...we all loved it! There's everything you need in the kitchen too, but please remember to use #4 cone-shaped coffee filters (you can get at Ralph's). Great, open indoor and outdoor spaces for dining, hanging out and relaxing, and an outdoor grill too! WiFi worked well, as did the TV(s...in master and "grandma" room as well as living room). We love this area because it's safe, so low-key, not a big party scene, unassuming and laid-back. Great for families and couples alike. Plus, there are 3 bars/restaurants and an ice cream shop we really loved within walking distance just outside the main gate of Villa Palmira. Plenty of clean linens, clean towels - including beach towels - and LOTS of shampoo, soap, sunscreen, beach chairs, floaties...you name it. If you forgot anything, you can probably find it at Norma's Villa Palmira. Norma thought of everything. We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Every time i read a review like this i get very excited and sometimes i even feel like crying of happiness, because just knowing that my tenants like my beach house and are looking to come back gives me total satisfaction, and it lets me know that i am doing a good job. As a proud Puerto Rican i strive for my tenants to take a great impression of my little island home. Even though the language is maybe different from a couple of you, and you cant communicate with a lot of people, the native people greet you with their smiles and show you their hospitality.I truly cant take all the credit to myself. I have a lot to thank for to my crew: Luis the pool guy Rolando a/c technician, Aida the maid, Don Luis the gardner and a couple of other people. Without them i would not be able to do my job the way that i am doing it. Thank you for this beautiful review, it was a pleasure have you and your family in my BEACH PARADISE, I hope to hear from you soon, BEST REGARDS ! :) -Norma-

Wonderful family home for beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from an amazing vacation in this property. Ever since we inquired I knew this was the property for us. The owner Norma was very responsive and the booking process was not at all complicated. Norma sent us arrival instructions, driving directions and many links to nearby attractions and restaurants prior to our trip which were great in helping us plan our vacation.

When we arrived everything was as advertised. The house was very clean and the owner so kindly left us some fruits and water bottles in the fridge which helped us feed the kids while half the group went to go get groceries at the Walmart super center which is nearby. Norma, I must say, has a great eye for detail. We had enough shampoo, soap, sunscreens, aloe vera sun lotion, q tips and all the other toiletries some of us forgot to pack which saved us unnecessary trips to stores.

The beach is right down the street a few footsteps away. It was amazing to wake up and have my morning coffee in the balcony with a beach view. We all loved going to play in the sand and taking a swim in the beach. The pool was also very refreshing, we all loved it and we spent the majority of the time cooking our meals on the grill. We used it so much that we ran out of gas however we contacted Norma and she had a replacement brought to us within an hour- talk about customer service! When we didn’t feel like cooking we went to a few of the nearby local seafood restaurants which are to die for! They even had great options for my picky eater kids :) there are also fast foods like Wendys, Bk, meson sandwich and many more options nearby.

The only thing the property was missing is internet connection due to the hurricane that occurred a while back. They are working on restoring it however it was not up yet when we were In the property. Norma mentioned it to us prior to our arrival and we were a bit hesitant however I’m glad it turned out that way. After getting back home my husband and I commented how that time without easy access to our social medias made us come closer as a family which was the point of this vacation.

I definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a safe, calm place for their family vacation. Thank you Norma for letting us stay in your beautiful property and for your amazing customer service. We will be coming back soon.
