About Elaine

We hail from San Francisco, California as a couple though we have lived in many parts of the United States, as well as travelled all over the world.

Elaine purchased this condo in 2012

Why Elaine chose Humacao

Having lived in so many amazing places we were not sure where we were going to settle when it came time to start a family, that is until we found our own little piece of paradise here in Palmas del Mar!

What makes this condo unique

We both need to have beauty all around us, and the ocean is a must. We also prefer warm weather, and lush tropical landscapes. Beautiful architecture, security, and sense of community round out our list. We have found it all and more here at The Marbella Club at Palmas del Mar!

Beautiful! Incredible Views, nicely appointed and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish the experience was exceptional. The property is beautiful and well maintained. The owner is very attentive - checking in during our stay to ensure we were enjoying the stay and had everything we needed to be comfortable. Security was outstanding and very personable. They took the time to know who we were and to be helpful throughout the visit. We highly recommend this property and it is our intention to always stay here in our future visits to Puerto Rico. We promise you will be blown away by it!

Beautiful penthouse and very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Puerto Rico and the choice of a location an hour away from San Juan was a concern. However the laid back environment of Palmas del Mar was perfect for our group (3 couples from various parts of the US including us from Chicago). Late January in 82 degree weather every day....what a wonderful world! The penthouse has a spacious floor plan but with the very high ceilings you feel like the rooms are even bigger than they are. Beds are very comfortable. The grounds are well maintained and the view from the bedrooms and balcony were fabulous! The trails, swimming pools, and hot tub were quite accessible but unfortunately erosion has made the beach area at Marbella largely unusable. There are great beaches not too far away.

There are good dining spots nearby and plenty of attractions with just a short drive. Golf here was wonderful. For us it was a perfect place for old friends to comfortably enjoy each other's company.

Our decision to select this unit was influenced in part by the strong praise for Elaine. This was very much justified. She had recommendations and suggestions for any of our needs (dining, beaches, cabs, etc). In addition she and Ward set us up on the golf course and even let us borrow clubs. Well beyond the extra mile!

Paradise Vacation at Palmas del Mar - WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation to Puerto Rico and it was fabulous. The Marbella Club is lovely - very clean, comfortable, with lush vegetation and two of the nicest swimming pools we have experienced. The bath house and hot tub were impeccable. The condo was wonderful! Beautiful views, very clean, very comfortable, exactly as described. Elaine was a terrific hostess. Palmas del Mar was the perfect location for our family of 6 to vacation. Plenty of walking paths, golf course, restaurants, small grocery/convenience store, equestrian center within the resort grounds. Our vacation also included a day at Old San Juan, hiking the El Yunque National Forest, snorkeling with Spread Eagle II in Fajardo, a visit to Luquillo Beach and the Kioskos, and a day spent poolside at the Marbella Club and the Beach Bohio. We had a fantastic time and will be back! Thanks Elaine!

Beautiful Palmas del Mar

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth time staying in Palmas del Mar. This time our family had a very special occasion to celebrate, and this was the perfect place to do it. From the the day we checked in to the day we checked out, we only experienced the best of service and amenities. And the view from the apartment is simply amazing! Thank you so much, Elaine. You are an excellent hostess!

Best Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 recently stayed at this beautiful villa. We were actually a little concerned with our extended stay because it was longer than we normally vacation. My husband wanted to make sure that we had a villa big enough that if we experienced any tense moment, everyone would have space of their own. This villa was so spacious, that we never felt cramped or that the walls were closing in. The villa was stocked with everything that we needed for our stay from the kitchen, showers, laundry room to beach towels and sunscreen. (unlike past condos where you had to bring your own) This made out travel much easier. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a wonderful bottle on wine on the kitchen counter. The kitchen windows open to the balcony which creates a great atmosphere for preparing meals. The view from the balcony was amazing. The pool, grounds and ocean were beautiful. We enjoyed walking around The Marabella Club in the morning. The only disappointment was that we when visited, there was no beach. There was so much erosion that the beach was gone and some palm trees were actually falling into the water. Things are being done to try to stop the erosion, but this is a natural beach. It was actually kinda neat learning about the erosion and watching it happen. Not having a beach, didn't stop us. There is so much to do at Palmas, we walked about 10 minutes to a access that lead to a beach, spent the day there, again beautiful! My girls and I went all over Palmas the day before we left and I took pictures of them, I have some gorgeous memories. I can not say enough about Elaine. She answered question after question and the week before our arrival, she sent so much information that I had no more questions left. She gave us her cell number and I did have to contact her about a minor issue, which she promptly answered. She even offered to send her husband to help with it but we figured it out through messages. We loved this location and villa! Already planning our next visit.

Two of us from work were heading to PR for work and decided not to stay at a hotel as usual.

What a great decision!

Instead of the standard hotel room and everything that goes with it, for very little more cost we had a full house with large rooms , a terrific pool and absolutely beautiful views from our 5th floor verandas. This condo is on the beach and Palmas has a lot to offer. We did not have enough time to try it all but from what I heard from others around the pool the beach club right next door is lots of fun and has some good food.

The beach at Marbella is not to big so you need to walk a little to find a spot to drop a chair. If you are looking to walk out the door to a large beach to hang out on this may not be for you, but if you enjoy walking along the beach this is a great place to go. The pool and hot tub have plenty of room so the ocean is best for the views and calming sounds of the waves.

It’s about an hour drive up the coast to a great beach at Seven Seas and it was worth it. Very calm water and the locals are so friendly. You can bring your own food and drink ( yes all kinds of refreshments) or there is a beach bar with munchies and lots to drink.

Elaine could not have been more helpful with her daily emails with things to do and see and she provided all you need to know about getting around the Island.

The house has beach towels, chairs and boogie boards so no need to pack them.

Car: recommended

Our property is perfectly nestled among the Caribbean ocean, the 17th green of a championship golf course, a wild palm tree plantation, and an exclusive members-only Beach Club facility. It doesn't get a lot better than this!!
