Guestbook comments from the owner

Another guest comment from our guest book:

What a great week! This was the 2nd trip to Puerto Rico for must of our family and once again it was fabulous place to be. The house was great the outside area was by far my favorite - We really enjoyed eating out on the veranda and our 5 year old was in the pool almost the entire time that he was awake. We enjoyed touring thru Palmas on the golf cart- catching the sunrise going to the beach, or just a relaxing drive.

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!

We are 2 adults ages 53 ,47, and traveled with our 18 year daughter. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised at how well equipped the house was especially the kitchen. We only needed to buy groceries. Sandry (our contact) was very helpful and attentive. We spent every morning eating breakfast by the pool, what a great way to start the day, and enjoying the view. My Mom and Dad, whom live on the island, joined us for a couple nights. They were loving it just as much as us. The golf cart was great for getting around the community. My wife enjoyed drives to the beach while I played golf. The pool was great especially after a round of golf. Our daughter was so impressed that all her facebook entries were about how happy she was.

While on the island we visited El Yunque, The Arecibo Observatory, The Caverns of Camuy, Rincon Light House, Luquillo Beach, and many more sites and were not disappointed with any. We would like to thank Nathalie for letting us use her home. It was one of the best vacations that our family has enjoyed. We would recommend this house to anyone. Nothing was misrepresented and you will not be disappointed!

Wonderful place - but no ocean access

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6(4 kids ages 8-12) stayed in the home for a week in March. It’s in a development inside of a group of developments. Therefore you need to basically go through two sets of gates to get to the house.

The house is lovely, it’s contemporary, clean and everything was in working condition. Nothing seemed warn out or tired. It’s relatively close to super Walmart and a strip mall with a Chili’s and a variety of fast food. The overall compound is somewhat confusing though, with no signage or directions on how to get to places. I recommend anyone staying there to dedicate some time and learn where the 4 local restaurants and convenience store are within larger development. Maps are included in your welcome package. We did not find it until our 5th day.

My major disappointment was the lack of access to swimmable ocean. You can take the golf cart between two sub-developments to the ocean about 15 mins away, however it’s unsafe. There are signs of riptides and workers came out and told us to not go into the water. When we got back to the home and did a bit of research it turns out that people have drowned there. We found a beautiful public beach about 40 minutes away, but that put a damper on our overall island expectations. It’s our fault for not doing our research. If you want the true close ocean experience, you need to stay on the north side of the island, not the south.

We did spend an afternoon in the development’s pool area with the slides. Its $15 per person over the age of 11 or 12 and $10 for kids younger than that. It’s an okay place, just a bit pricy for larger families. If planning to do this, you must 1st get that card from the golf clubhouse (not the easiest place to find).

Overall, the home is gorgeous and sparkling. Valy, the local contact is accessible, helpful and kind. The owners provide detailed directions to/from airport and overall maps of the development. They too were responsive and helpful.

Owner's Response: This is our personal vacation home and we take great pride in making it clean, comfortable and up to date with all the needed amenities/supplies for all of our guests. The private swimming pool and outdoor dining make it perfect for family gatherings. We always appreciate it when our guests take notice. We also maintain our membership to the resort's "Athletic Club", which gives our guests access to the Beach Club, golf and tennis for a fee. The resort was designed for tourism as well as year round living and therefore designed with a number of unique gated communities within the resort. We currently live in Florida and this is a common community design and one we prefer. Our community Harbour Lights is one of the exclusive communities in Palmas Del Mar. We take great pride in taking care of our guests and provide them with a comprehensive welcome packet prior to their arrival which includes maps, facts about Palmas Del Mar but also additional information of things to do on the island. This information is also available in a binder in the house should our guests not have their welcome packet with them. Palmas Del Mar is a large Resort development with some residents living there year round. It offers, golf, tennis, horseback riding, fishing expeditions, marinas, restaurants, full-service hotel and casino. It also has one of the top ranking academic schools in the country for its residents. Palmas Del Mar has a small beach primarily used by the resort community and guests. Our family enjoys the beach for its close proximity, lovely beach restaurant, phenomenal pina coladas and swimming. We prefer the beach club when entertaining the little ones in the family. Depending on the time of year, changes in climate and/or impact of global climate changes many coastal lines and beaches (Hawaii, Florida, Aruba, Costa Rica, etc.) deal with "rip current" conditions. We are familiar with the statistics on drowning across the US & Caribbean and Palmas Del Mar is not considered a high risk area. Safety precautions and attention to swimming warnings always make good sense when entering a large body of water. We have been sharing our piece of paradise with vacationers since 2007 and as a family have enjoyed our vacation home for 12+ years. We frequent beaches all over Florida and Puerto Rico but find being able to drive to the beach with our cooler in the back of the golf cart, park in the sand steps from the beach, set up our chairs...the most relaxing!

Excellent Home In Palmas

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time staying in Palmas and this was the best property. The house is furnished very nicely and everything works great. We enjoyed having the pool because a couple of days the waves were too big at the beach. The addition of the golf cart adds fun and ease of travel to the square. Highly recommend Pure Vida (owner Ivan) and also the newest fish restaurant Pescaderia. A great bargain for the home and we will be staying there again. Thank you Natalie and Valy.

Absolutely Awesome Home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this property. The property is 45-50 minutes from the San Juan airport. The property was clean and well maintained. We had a ball. We traveled with 5 adults and 5 children. My mother-in-law wanted a vacation with her children and their spouses and her grandchildren. This home met all our expectations. I felt like I was home. Nathalie responded to all my questions before hand in a timely fashion and the property manager Valy made sure everything was to our liking when we arrived. The Palmas Del mar Resort is extremely beautiful. The beach is a short fun golf cart ride from the house. You must take the golf cart and tour the resort. The views are incredible. We drove the golf cart everywhere. Everything you need is in the house. If you plan on cooking the only thing you need is food. The house is equipped with everything. We shopped at Walmart and Sam's Club which are less then 15 minutes away. The master suite was wonderful. There are 4 bedrooms upstairs with 3 full bedrooms. The temps were 86 during the day and 75 at night. The breeze was wonderful at night. My only complaint, I should have stayed longer. 7 days wasn't enough. Next time I will stay for at least 2 weeks. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to vacation in Puerto Rico!!!!

Stay VIP Sytle

  • 5 of 5

Four adult couples traveled to the beautiful island of PuertoRico, and we wanted to stay away from the metropolitan area of San Juan. We wanted to experience the culture of the Puerto Rican people, and stay within the locals. This house was perfect!!. We did not need for anything, it was very immaculately kept. The interior was updated and in excellent condition. Location was perfect! Gated community, Very safe with beautiful grounds. Our group can't stop talking about the great experience, and where great memories were made. We are already planning to return, and will be staying at the same place.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

On family vacation for a week and it was wonderful. I'm a repeat renter and I love this house because it has everything and is near everything. It was a group of 8 and it was terrific, more than enough room and plenty for the kids to do. We had the luck of going when tropical storm Ericka hit the island but we had no worries because the house has a generator so we never lost power. The caretaker is a phone call away in case of anything. Thank you for everything it was awesome once again.

Car: recommended

Located 45 min. from San Juan where Puerto Rico meets the Carribean Sea, you'll find remote coves, stretches of open beach,and luxury resort lifestyles. One of the most dramatic shorelines is near Humacao at Punta Santiago, a promontory that juts into the jade waters of the Caribbean Sea. Off its tip is Santiago Cay,a small islet inhabited only by Rhesus monkeys. Boat rides around the Cay are readily available and the short trip is great for children. Within a 10 min. drive, is JC Penny, Wal-Mart/grocery ,Cineplex etc..The resort offers casino, lots of restaurants, horseback riding ,tennis center (private lessons and tennis camp for kids available) and 2 breathtaking golf courses with ocean views. El Yunque Tropical forest is 20 min away. For a day-sailing to the Phosphorescent Bay and many others island adventures is also available.

Golf: Fronting a long sandy beach( 3 miles), Palmas del Mar Country Club on Puerto Rico's southeast coast offers two fine world class courses. The Flamboyan Course, a solid layout by Rees Jones opened in 1998, is a multi-theme design woven through wetlands, meadows, and coconut palms, with several holes bordering the Caribbean Sea. Jones also reworked the resort's Palm course ,creating three new holes and revamping several others.
