Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

After traveling to many carribean destinations, Palmas del Mar is like no other vacation getaway. Palmas embraces the island lifestyle in a relaxed setting with a multitude of activities. The people are truly the most friendly in the carribean. It is easy "in and out" traveling since there is NO customs and an expressway from the airport to the beach in less than an hour.

I began this journey eight years ago. Palma Nova Village was the end of my search for an island home. Owning this Villa is my lifelong dream. It is my hope to share this dream with you. This is my only rental unit which means I am available 24/7 to create your dream vacation. WHY DID I CHOOSE THIS LOCATION IN PALMAS? The Villa sits on a hill which gives you mesmerizing ocean views from all three levels. My unit is 5-10 feet higher than the other units in the complex. There is a difference( especially from the bedroom level). The constant trade wind breeze brings the temperature down which will be appreciated during the summer season. On an island vacation, we spend all day at sea level. It is nice to start and end the day with a view and cool breeze. During the evening, imagine that you are on one of the three terraces with a cold beverage listening to the coqui frogs and enjoying the "soft air" that Puerto Rico is famous for. The moon is rising over Vieques and you let out a quiet sigh of satisfaction. This is the vacation that you worked so hard for. When it is time to start your daily activity, you will love the location of the Villa. The Plaza which is the "town center" in the community is just a five minute walk. There are restaurants, a market and concerts during the weekend. The beach and marina are just a few minutes walk beyond the Plaza. You will find that the Villa is close to everything, but very peaceful and tranquil where it is situated.

My staff includes a House Manager, Handyman, Maid, and Concierge that are all fluent in english and spanish. The House Manager is also available 24/7 during your stay. If something breaks, we will address the issue immediately. As a member of the Palmas Athletic Club, I am able to get you into the Palmas pool, tennis club, golf courses, and fitness center. There is also a pool, sauna, and gym( free internet and cable)within the complex. I hope you read the reviews and feel free contact me with any questions. Also, linens, towels, and beach chairs provided.

Best Regards,

Matt

About Matthew Sorensen

I am a Captain at a major airline. I am based in Boston, Ma. and live in Portsmouth NH. I have the ability to travel and have done so to many island destinations. This is the BEST!!

Matthew Sorensen purchased this villa in 2011

Why Matthew Sorensen chose Puerto Rico

This location is five minutes from the beach, shopping, marina, and restaurants in a thriving resort community. Being a PAC member gives myself and my guests access to the pool, golf and tennis in Palmas.

What makes this villa unique

My Villa is like no other in Palmas del Mar since it is at the highest point in the community. It lends spectacular views of the ocean, rainforest, and Vieques from 3 balconies. The tradewinds add a constant cool breeze over the sound of surf. There is tranquility with a location that has easy access to all the amenities Palmas has to offer. As seen on House Hunters International, Puerto Rico. I am a PAC member which gives you access to the Palmas pool, golf, tennis , and fitness facilities.

It was a great first trip to PR.

  • 5 of 5

Matthew has a very well kept property. Its clean and has all the things you would need in your own home. It is very big three floors big. I love the fact it had a balcony and terrace on the 2nd and 3rd floors. The community it very nice and basically have everything within a ten mile drive. It is a little far from San Juan and other tourist places if your driving, but still great a place to stay. Overall I would stay again

One of the best. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best VRBOs we have ever stayed at - hands down. The villa has really fantastic views and the cross breeze is perfect. The 3 levels are fun - bedrooms on bottom, kitchen/dining in the middle, and a truly amazing family room on top.The 3 decks are dreamy, very private for sun tanning, shade, or resting. We liked the design and decor. The amenities at Palmas Del Mar that Matt has access to are top-notch. You can take the golf cart all around the resort. His communication is prompt and informative as are his financial transactions. We only stayed 3 days, and wished it were a week.

There is a local grocery store nearby in Hamacao - Ralph's Food Warehouse - that we preferred to support rather than the Walmart there. The produce was fantastic - way better fruits than we can get in Minnesota this time of year. It is as large and full of options as stores in the States.

There is also a tiny grocery within the Palmas Del Mar resort that has almost everything you need. The same courtyard has a couple of restaurants, bar, shops, frozen yogurt and pretty good pizza at Flying Pizza. Fun place for kids. Beach Bohio is a must eat - casual dining with fantastic hamburgers and strong drinks literally RIGHT next to the ocean. It is on the beach behind the Waldorf Garden in Palmas Del Mar - which also has a casino and a cute sweets shop - David's Cookies.

We had a car so we left the resort to take a drive South along highway 3 - a fun, curvy road that follows along the ocean. Through several towns along the way there are great local, open-air bars with some darn good empanadas. The hills make for some amazing ocean views. We rented the car from Enterprise in San Juan and paid a small fee to return it near Fajardo - stopping first to get ferry tickets to Culebra Island and then having lunch at the amazing El Conquistador Resort where the car rental office is. They drive you back to the ferry dock. We found the ferry was a pleasant experience, no issues at all - but we made the trip on a Thursday to avoid any weekend hassles.

There are not many places we would return to - preferring the adventure of traveling to new Caribbean islands. But we'd reconsider returning to Puerto Rico - Matt's condo is that amazing.

The experience was great. The apartments is just like you see it in the pictures. The king room is really spacious. The common areas are great to spend time looking at the beach or just relaxing. Highly recommended.

Norwegians in paradise

We had a greate stay in Matt's house. The house met our expectations based on the information from Matt and the picture of his place. Joaquin was helpfull with all the information we needed about Palmas del Mar and the area around the house. One thing that can be better, buy a new coffemaker.

Owner's Response: Maybe it is the view.....maybe coffee tastes better in Puerto Rico. This coffee maker makes the best coffee I have ever tasted!! So good that I will shed a tear when this coffee maker retires. Thanks for the review. There is a new back up coffee maker in case you don't like the original.
