Overview

About the property

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

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.

Lasting memories made!

  • 5 of 5

My family (myself, husband, 3 kids and 2 extra friends) stayed at the Beach Village condo and we had an amazing experience! The condo was clean and comfortably slept all 7 of us. The kitchen was well supplied and had all of the "equipment" we needed. There were beach chairs, beach towels, 2 boogie boards and a grill for our use which we really appreciated. We had everything we needed...we just had to add people, food and fun! You look out over the beach from inside and walk down the outside stairs and you are on the beach. We enjoyed playing in the waves (my kids are older so they could handle the rough waters) and walking on the beach. There is a nice pool and a small shopping center where you can get some necessities. The drive to San Juan and the other "tourist" activities we did (Bio Bay, snorkeling, rain forest, ziplining, Luquillo Beach, etc) were not more than an hour's drive. We had no issues so we didn't need to contact the property manager. However, I texted her with a quick question and she responded immediately. Very friendly. We loved it!

Beautiful area.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is well kept and great for a group. There isn't a elevator to get to the condo and it's entry is on the second floor. Carry luggage up and down the stairs was a real pain. There are 4 floors within the condo and lots of steps, but didn't seem to be a problem except for luggage. The view is wonderful. The photo is from the balcony. The Wifi never worked. They came to check on it, but nothing was done. Otherwise, everything was great. Well worth the price.

Owner's Response: I have explained there are stairs and this is the first I have heard of a complaint. I am sorry that they had problems with the internet but as soon as were notified we responded immediately. However, the problem was with the utility company and we kept notifying. Unfortunately, the island utilities do not respond as fast as USA. I am glad enjoyed the spectacular views and well maintained ocean condo especially for the economical price.

Absolutely gorgeous location!

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed here for 10 days. There were 4 adults in our group. Loved the layout of the villa. Multiple levels meant privacy for everyone. Beds were comfortable. The view is exactly as pictured. Kitchen fairly well-stocked. Could use a few large serving bowls, some leftover containers and a cookie sheet. A crockpot would be a nice bonus to cook meals while out on the beach or around the pool. Golf cart rental is a must if you do not have car. We rented a car for the last 4 days in order to explore the rain forest, Ponce and Arecibo Observatory. Palmas Del Mar is so beautiful and quiet. Great meals at numerous restaurants on the resort. Everyone was so friendly. Great vacation!

Ocean front condo Palmas del Mar

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location. Right in front of beach. Great waves, a little rough for young children. Condo was in good condition. Loft bed was uncomfortable. Musty smell in middle room. Could use a few more items like pans, cookie sheets, etc.

Villa Sunrise & Sunset Spectacular Beach View!!!

  • 5 of 5

My best friend & I stayed in this villa originally for 9 days, then I contacted Darrin, the owner & Nancy, the Property Manager and I extended my stay for an additional 9 days. The villa was very comfortable, enjoyable & breathtaking. Darrin, the owner was able to extend my days in his villa. Darrin’s Property Manager, Nancy was also very accommodating as well.

On one occasion I called Nancy, because, the hot water did not reach the 2nd floor bathroom, Nancy immediately sent someone over & managed to make the hot water adjustments to the 2nd floor bathroom.

When I would call Nancy, she always answered my call. She was kind, humble & very helpful to our needs & request. She answered all my questions.

Pros: for this villa: very clean, comfortable, equipped with all the kitchen appliances that is needed, beach towels, beach chairs, laundry room, all you can ask for, yes steps to the beach. Nancy, Property Manager very responsive

Cons: 2nd floor bathroom, you have to run the water for a while before the hot water reaches 2nd floor bathroom. (The master bathroom hot water comes quickly, does not happen to the master bathroom),

Lock on patio door a bit difficult to lock.

Other then that my best friend & I enjoyed this villa very much!

We met a couple from Iowa, they were renting a 2-bedroom villa, and since I was leaving, they asked if they could see the villa, I was staying in.

I called Nancy, the property manager & got her permission to show the couple the villa.

The couple from Iowa loved the villa & said they were going to speak to Nancy regarding renting this villa in the future.

Question: Would we rent this villa again? Yes, absolutely!

Rate: 1 -5 1 being the lowest 5 being the highest: 4.5

NO SWIMMING

  • 1 of 5

I was led to believe by the owner that there was swimming, surfing, and snorkeling at the beach in front of the villa. There are danger signs everywhere and there is no swimming in the ocean in all of Palmas del Mar. Apparently there are VERY rough currents etc. and we were met with danger signs and red flags. Our family is one that spends the majority of our time in the water and if you take that away...there really is not much else to do at the Palmas.

The villa is wonderful and the view is beautiful but without a beach and ocean to swim in, there really is not much else to do requiring you to leave the resort spending lots more money. The sliding door in the master is wonderful however, it doesn't work. The "veiw" pictures should be updated because the beach is so eroded and covered in several feet of seaweed (not owners fualt) however after talking with locals the seaweed is ALWAYS there. The owner would have you believe it's not. And it is so thick on the beach and in the water making the beach and ocean completely unenjoyable.

I would NOT reccomend this rental for families who enjoy the ocean and spend most of their time on the beach.

Owner's Response: I am glad the renter acknowledged the condo is in good condition because after a previous review, I had the condo updated, new air conditioning installed in the second bedroom. The condo is ocean front with great views. I lived in Palmas for 11.5 years and left in 2012 so the renter stating that the beaches are always in the present condition is ridiculous. Unexpectedly, all the Caribbean, including Cancun, has had a problem with sargassum which is floating plant life. This summer has experienced an unprecedented amount. This renter was the first I heard of the large amount. True, there are signs stating the danger of the ocean because there are no lifeguards. These signs have been in place for years because of swimming at one’s own risk. I did not state there is snorkeling in front of condo but there is snorkeling in Palmas. However, the best is to take a snorkeling trip. I provide my renters with details on such activities through personal experience. I inform people that the ocean conditions depend on weather. I swam and boogie boarded for years in front of the condo with my small children. When wave action was high, of course caution was needed. Throughout the years, I have seen the beach expand and contrast. The ocean is a living organism, it does what it wants. Palmas has many areas to explore including secluded coves and I am happy to explain how to arrive at these areas. Unfortunately, this renter only complained and failed to let me assist her. Regrettably, this renter failed to state I offered her a newly renovated town home with a private pool for no additional cost. I also offered to pay for use of the Beach Club but this was not mentioned either. I have a great property manager and together we seek to provide good service and accommodate our renters.

Watch the ocean and swaying palms from your private balcony, kitchen or living room. This condo has some of the best views of the Caribbean as you are literally steps from the beach. From this ideal location on the southeast coast of Puerto Rico, there is something for everyone. 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. There are all types of dining from casual to eloquent.

Golf: There are two 18-hole championship golf courses, over 20 tennis courts including hard surface, clay and artificial grass.
