About the property

Six Bedroom; Six and One Half Bath Home With Ocean Views Close To The Beach

With a 20kw generator to protect your vacation investment from island power outages, our personal residence is a six bedroom; six and one half bath home overlooking the ocean. With 24/7 professional concierge service provided at no additional cost, this unique home is specially designed to provide visitors an all inclusive destination that offers every amenity imaginable to the discerning traveler.

Beautifully landscaped grounds welcome your arrival. Upon entering the foyer, guests are greeted by the dramatic view of the ocean seen through the floor to ceiling window accompanied by a comfortable sitting area perfect for relaxing. In the event work happens to call, next to the foyer is an office with wet bar accompanied by a wireless printer/scanner; furnished private balcony; and half bath. Also adjoining the foyer are the dining room; living room; and kitchen.

Cooking is a family event at our home, and no expense has been spared in appointing the kitchen and adjoining living area so that they function as one large open space. The kitchen features high end appliances including a double oven; convection microwave oven; side by side refrigerator with bottom freezer and ice maker; stainless steel dishwasher; and two coffee makers (regular and Keurig). A fully stocked spice rack and condiments are available for guests. A large high definition television perched in the living room is viewable from both rooms, and a counter with stools adjoins the two rooms so the chef is always a part of the activity. Socializing flows seamlessly from inside to outside onto the large balcony overlooking the ocean. Imagine dining outside with a view of the ocean waves or a full moon illuminating the water. The fully furnished balcony provides everything needed for relaxing and socializing.

A few steps from the balcony lies a tropical oasis overlooking the ocean. Listen to the ocean waves and running fountain feature while enjoying the pool with heated Jacuzzi. How about a day of grilling; swimming; and your favorite sporting events while gazing at the ocean? The custom built outdoor kitchen includes a professional grill; sink; cable television; and rest room for a complete outdoor experience.

Downstairs the media room offers an array of entertainment options. A 72 inch high definition television with home theater surround sound and DVR is the focal point of the room. Choose from the library of DVD's, or better yet, bring your own virtual library. Apple TV (available in the media room and living room via whole house wireless access points) turns your Iphone into a virtual DVD player and allows the home theater experience to launch directly from the phone. Bring your own Netflix and YouTube accounts to life in this ultimate theater experience. Behind the gaming loungers is a huge L shaped sofa on a raised platform providing convenient viewing and comfort for everyone. The media room also includes a wet bar; an old fashioned popcorn machine cart; and a variety of family games.

The house includes six bedrooms, each of which is equipped with its own separate full bath. Each room in the house is climate controlled with its own individual air conditioner. Each room includes spa robes for comfortable lounging along with high end custom bedding. The master bedroom with furnished balcony overlooking the ocean offers a breathtaking view each morning. Each bedroom is appointed with its own unique theme. All bedrooms include a flat screen TV with satellite television. High definition television with Apple TV is featured in the living room and media room. Dish Network with whole house Hopper brings high definition and the top Dish viewing package to all rooms.

Attention to detail abounds in the home's furnishings. Most of the decor was imported in order to achieve the owner's discriminate desire for beachside luxurious living. From the high quality bedding to indoor and outdoor furnishings, a vacation here will feel like a home away from home. The home is professionally wired with access points throughout, making full strength wireless access available in every area of the house. Wireless connectivity extends to the entire pool and outdoor kitchen area so that relaxation outside can include all forms of media. Around the corner from the house lies what some consider to be the most enjoyable secluded beach experience in Palmas Del Mar. Walk or ride to this oasis of serenity that is typically only used by the few who know about it.

For the ultimate 'home away from home' experience, you are invited to our Caribbean paradise. We look forward to sharing our home with those who appreciate the finer touches of vacation living.

About Lance Talkington

My wife and I live in our personal residence here in Palmas Del Mar and share it with our guests for a few weeks each year. We are originally from Arkansas and have been married for over 25 years with two grown children. We moved to Puerto Rico in 2013 and are enjoying every minute of it.

Lance Talkington purchased this house in 2013

Why Lance Talkington chose Humacao Pueblo

We chose to live in Palmas Del Mar mainly due to the incredible ocean views and the sense of community. We enjoy living in the atmosphere of Palmas, and at the same time it is an easy drive to the hustle and bustle of Old San Juan and Condado where we go frequently.

What makes this house unique

With luxury furnishings to appeal to the most discerning traveler, our home is unique in that we live in it most of the year. Most of the furnishings were imported from the states in order to achieve a unique beach theme home setting. Our home is designed to be a true 'home away from home'.

The home is equipped with Wifi coverage that reaches every corner of the home as well as the entire back yard where the pool and outdoor kitchen are located. The theater room is equipped with a 72 inch HDTV along with Dish Network programming and a home theater sound system. Every bedroom has its own flat screen television and private bathroom. The outdoor kitchen is equipped with a professional grill and prep area along with a half bathroom. A 20k Kohler whole home generator protects our guests' vacation investment from island power outages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at this place for 6 nights and all of my friends claimed it was definitely one of the most unforgettable life experiences that we ever had. The owners are so nice and patient for helping us on everything. The house is amazing and decoration is very cozy. We had a lot of fun with the BBQ place and the pools, especially the one with the therm. Also, the location is inside a resort, so it is very safe and convenient for getting everything needed (Walmart, CVS ,restaurants, casino, etc), although the owner pretty much provided us everything. The house also has a beautiful ocean view while It faces the East and we could enjoy sunrise every morning if we get up early enough. The horse riding at the resort was a lot fun experience it is a must go experience. We highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy an incredible vacation at Puerto Rico. Five stars on everything.

Very beautiful, clean, home for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not portray all the special touches the owners provide for the renters of this property. We were 7 adults with 6 children ages 6 to 15. There was enough space for everyone to have private time and to mingle as a group. Views from the home were spectacular. The home was everything and more for all of us to enjoy. Having Nancy Cruz available to answer any questions was very helpful.

First Class Home and Resort.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home overlooks a breathtaking view of the Atlantic. This home was luxurious and well appointed. There was nothing we didn't have. Whether enjoying the pool or hot tub outside, enjoying one of the balconies or watching movies at night in the theatre room, we lacked for nothing. This home sits inside a beautiful resort with access to many amenities. We enjoyed going to the beach club, the beaches, exploring on the golf cart and the equestrian center. So much to take advantage of. We also took full advantage of the concierge available with the home. Nancy was so helpful to us. Whether we had questions about home, needed recommendations about excursions or booking a chef for our family, she did it all. She even purchased groceries for us and were waiting for us at check in. We truly had a wonderful experience in this home and on this beautiful island. Can't wait to go back to Puerto Rico.

Owner's Response: We encourage guests to get out and explore Palmas like this family did. In addition to the beach club and numerous beach areas, the equestrian center is something that everyone who enjoys horseback riding should explore. It's a well run operation with really nice facilities and is staffed by helpful and knowledgeable people. Lance

Everything was simply fantastic - beautiful property from the inside and outside!

  • 5 of 5

I really can't say enough good things about this rental - the property itself is amazing from the beautiful bedrooms to the enjoyable theatre room (every TV in the house has Netflix). Located in a stunning and safe resort - this rental is perfect for some quality relaxation. The pool and the jacuzzi are great fun with little touches like floats and water guns thrown in! Each of the five main bedrooms has been decorated beautifully but the master bedroom is absolutely gorgeous with stunning views of the coast.

Nancy, the property manager, was fantastic - very helpful and always available to answer our questions. We rented golf buggies from Nancy which was a really fun way of getting round the resort and I would recommend this if you don't have a car (taxis are expensive). Lance, the owner, was also very nice and accomodating - we asked for the pool guy to be sent more frequently than originally intended and this was arranged for us without any hesitation, which was really nice. They also showed us a nearby walking route to a beautiful coastal and beach spot which is fun if you're comfortable climbing up and down a rocky route.

The beach club nearby which Nancy can source passes too is fun for a family day out with access to a few pools, table tennis, volleyball, pool basketball and a couple of water slides.

Highly recommended rental, I would go back! Thank you Nancy and Lance!

Owner's Response: Thanks Mala. To follow up on the trail from the beach, the snorkeling at the end of the point is some of the best in Puerto Rico. Since discovering it ourselves recently, guests are encouraged to bring or otherwise secure snorkeling gear.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was not only beautiful and a wonderful place to stay, but both the owner and Nancy made the trip easier for our family. The description of the house was exactly what was described and in some cases better. The views from the master bedroom were terrific. The owners and Nancy provided detailed information of the local area and where we could buy all the essentials to make our stay comfortable. The community has a convience store, restaurants and a beach club that was great for the kids. I would highly recommend this for any family who wants a great vacation in Puerto Rico.

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a home to accommodate our family of 11 ( including three 18-20 year olds and one 3 year old) so comfortably. Each room is wonderfully decorated and provided a place to escape from such a large group if you choose not to enjoy the pool or theater room.

We took the recommendation of another guest and contacted Eddie Rivera of Pandora Tour Puerto Rico to pickup/dropoff to the airport (he also took us so we could get lunch both ways Since we didnt have a car Mel & jackie (property managers) were kind enough to take us to walmart to go grocery shopping..and drop us off to get a golf cart as well as help with any questions. We eventually rented a car which we recommend.

Back to the house. Im a cook and the kiitchen had everything we needed including a variety of seasonings & plates needed to cook & serve family style meals. Every bedroom has its own bathroom......the view from the master bedroom was amazing in the morning.

The only negative and no fault of the owners was the attack of the corral on the beaches of palmas del mar. Just another reason to rent a car to go to the beach off the property.

We left trying to decide when we were coming back....

Thanks Lance for letting us enjoy your home.

Owner's Response: Thanks Monica for taking such good care of our home. I'm the cook in our family, so it's good to hear that everything needed was in the kitchen. We look forward to having your group as guests in our home again. Lance

A wonderful week in Palmas!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 14 traveled to Puerto Rico for the first time in July. Our group consisted of 3 families with teenagers and the grandparents. This home in Palmas Del Mar is exquisite! The layout is great, there is plenty of room for everyone to come together or to go off and have quiet time. We loved the beautiful view of the cliffs and the ocean, visible from the upper and lower balconies. The home was beautifully appointed and well maintained. It had all the comforts of home and then some. All enjoyed the private backyard pool and jacuzzi. There is a lovely waterfall that flows from the backside of the house into the pool. The whole Palmas resort is beautiful. It is great for walking, or jogging. You can rent golf carts inside the resort community and there are well paved cart paths so you don't have to drive on the roads. The teens loved it, gave them independence since they couldn't drive the rental cars. Mel and Jackie act as concierge for the owners property, and they were just great to work with. They promptly tend to any needs, and are friendly and welcoming. Would love to see more shops and restaurants in the Palmas resort community. But otherwise, there's tennis, beach combing, and horse back riding and the simple pleasure of relaxing in this gorgeous home. Most day trips took about 45 minutes to an hour from this resort, but I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Our home is located in Palmas Del Mar - the largest gated community in the Caribbean. A beach club; tennis facility; two 18 hole golf courses; casino; fitness facility; horseback riding; market; and a number of restaurants are all close to the home inside Palmas. There are two private beaches near our home. In addition, the beach at Solaria is ideal for kids and families who want a beach with the ultimate in reef protection. The ideal way to explore Palmas beaches is to rent a golf cart for the day. Every beach can be directly accessed by golf cart.
