About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath ocean view villa, sleeps 11, steps to the beach and pool

HURRICANE UPDATE: This villa sustained no storm damage. We have electric power and water from a municipal water system. We are so grateful that our villa weathered the storm and is ready for guests. The Palmas del Mar resort has done an amazing job of cleaning up after the hurricanes. Thanks to all those who have worked so hard and who keep on working to restore the community of Palmas del Mar.

Beautiful ocean and golf course view 3 bedroom, 2 bath multi-level villa completely renovated in 2016. INTERNET AND ACCESS TO PRIVATE BEACH VILLAGE POOL. Our villa is located in Palmas del Mar, a 2,750 acre gated community 42 miles east of San Juan or a 50 minute drive from the airport (SJU). Enjoy a relaxing vacation in our fully equipped villa. We have staff on site to care for the villa and can assist you if you should need anything. It's fun to walk or rent a bike to go around the community and enjoy the amenities of Palmas del Mar including 2 award winning championship golf courses, tennis, marina, 4 star restaurants, equestrian center, casino, and health club and spa. Palmas del Mar has the Caribbean's largest tennis center with 20 courts and 3 different types of surfaces. Children's park including swings , slides, climbing walls and a skateboard park only a few min walk away with free access.

Our villa is located right next to the newly renovated private pool and is a 1 minute walk or 100 steps to the beach. Enjoy nearby attractions including; Bio bay, biking and kayaking in the nature preserve, zip lining or hiking in the El Yunque Rainforest, take a day trip to Old San Juan or visit the nearby islands of Vieques, Culebra or Monkey island. You can also visit nearby La Monserrate Beach and Kiosks in Luquillo. This is a fun experience to sample many different local Puerto Rican foods. Ponce, the island's capital, is rich in history and architecture and only 1 hr 45 mins away.

The villa has an en suite master bedroom with a king size orthopedic mattress and a balcony overlooking the golf course. Enjoy your morning cafe con leche on the balcony overlooking the golf course with distant mountain views.

The second bedroom can sleep 5 with twin beds and a trundle or 2 twins can be converted to a king with our professional conversion kit. This bedroom has a lovely ocean view and you can hear the surf lulling you to sleep every night. You can also access the outdoor living space from this bedroom. All of the ceilings and doors in the villa are cathedral giving it an open and airy feel.

The third bedroom is a spacious loft that can sleep 4 with 2 twins that can be converted to a king and two rollaway beds. There is also a pack and play which can be used as portable crib.

The kitchen is brand new with European style cabinets and is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare meals for both small and larger groups. The kitchen has beautiful white stone counter tops and a custom mosaic tile back splash reflecting the colors of the ocean. We have seating for 10 people in the dining area and additional seating outside for 4 on the back patio.

The villa is equipped with all the extras for a fun day at the beach. We have body boards, sand toys, sand chairs, coolers, pool noodles, beach bags, beach towels and a beach umbrella.

The villa is fully air conditioned with individually controlled wall units in each room. We rarely need the A/C as the ocean breezes provide wonderful ventilation. The views from this villa are unsurpassed. Sit and enjoy happy hour on the front deck overlooking the ocean and the island of Vieques.

There is plenty to do right in Palmas but if you desire to leave the property then there are many sites nearby to explore.

We hope you enjoy visiting as much as we do.

About Dana and Cynthia Beauchesne

Our family has enjoyed visiting Puerto Rico and Palmas del Mar for the past 6 years. We fell in love with the natural beauty of this area and eventually desire to retire there. We reside in New Hampshire and enjoy the opportunity to escape the cold winter and enjoy the warmth of the Caribbean. Our family has rented in other vacation destinations throughout the world and we were sometimes frustrated that these rentals were not equipped adequately. Usually trying to cook a simple meal was a challenge. We have taken those experiences and equipped our villa with everything you need for a comfortable vacation. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we do.

Dana and Cynthia Beauchesne purchased this villa in 2016

Why Dana and Cynthia Beauchesne chose Humacao Pueblo

We purchased this property because of the view. We have an unobstructed ocean front view and we are steps away from a beautiful beach. There are beautiful views of the golf course and mountains from the back deck. The nature surrounding this property is amazing and it is a quiet and peaceful setting. We also have the bonus of being in a sea turtle conservation area where every year turtles return to lay their eggs.

What makes this villa unique

This property is located in a perfect spot. right next to the pool and 100 steps from the beach. 2 minute walk to restaurants and Casino. Ocean views and the sound of surf throughout the villa. Great Ocean breeze through the villa when you open windows. Private gated community with endless natural beauty! Children's park including swings , slides, climbing walls and a skateboard park only a few min walk away with free access.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to start by saying thank you for allowing us to stay in your villa. We had the most unforgettable stay there! We knew the villa was going to be amazing, but when we got inside, we instantly felt that the pictures just didn't do it justice. The interior design of the villa is stunning and elegant. The two patios both have incredible views and plenty of space. The kitchen is gorgeous and the backsplash and countertops are spectacular. Overall, the villa felt very accommodating. It had all of the supplies and equipment we needed. We watched movies, made breakfast in the mornings, and blended pina colada drinks for the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed walking over to the beach and relaxing. The chairs, umbrella, and boogie boards really enhanced the experience.



In addition to our fabulous experience in the villa, some of the highlights of our trip included:

Kayaking at bio bay in Fajardo - once in a lifetime experience!

Eating at La Estacion in Fajardo - BBQ was phenomenal

Bohio Beach Bar - Coconut Arepas and Mahi Mahi were delicious

Jet skis to monkey island - Gringo Jetski rental

Old San Juan - delicious brunch at Cafe Berlin, and shopped around for a while after

Casinos - we went to Marriot and Ritz-Carlton Casinos in San Juan, and Casino Real here in Palmas Del Mar

Pura Vida - El Dorado with mango y guava was fantastic

Chez Daniels - Delicious mac and cheese, great Tapas!

Yunque national forest - Hiked to Mina falls (the water was cold!)



Overall, I want to thank you again for your hospitality.



Thank you!

A luxury getaway!

  • 5 of 5

You'll love this place! This is a beautifully decorated 2 story villa w 3rd floor loft in the premier part of Palmas. The beach is across the street and a private (and very clean) pool even closer. You can even walk to Wyndham right next door.

We loved the balconies, fully stocked kitchen, fully stocked laundry room (with plenty of water toys for the kids), TV options (we used netflix for movies!), and luxurious bathrooms.

Best of all, the owners were very friendly and accesible.

Thank you for a lovely stay!

Owner's Response: We really enjoyed having you and we are glad you enjoyed the location which is steps from the pool and private beach. Just after you left that day a whole nest of 45 baby turtles hatched out of the sand right in front of the villa and made it into the ocean. Maybe you will catch seeing that happen next year. Again we enjoyed having you and your family!

The perfect place for beach lovers!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an incredible week at this Beach Villa! The unit is completely updated and modern. The kitchen was fully stocked and everything looked brand new. There are 3 bedrooms in this unit that can comfortably sleep many people. The best part: we could both see and hear the surf right from our bedroom! Beautiful beach with something for everyone: smooth sand, calm surf in one area and a short walk down the beach brought us some waves for boogie boarding! Spent hours in the warm water- no rocks, just coconuts! The unit has TWO decks for relaxing, one off the front with the ocean view and one off the back with the golf course view and great viewing of wild life. We especially enjoyed watching the iguanas! The unit is also just steps away from a beautiful pool- quiet and relaxing. It is located within a large gated complex that contains everything you could want: grocery store, plaza with several restaurants, tennis courts, golf course, play ground, skate park, rain forest board walk - even a church. At the plaza we ate Mexican food, Puerto Rican traditional food, and pizza- all very good. Lots of things to do outside of the complex. We visited Old San Juan, ate at local traditional restaurants and took a full day snorkel trip (which was incredible). Our stay was perfect and we plan to return with the whole family for a longer stay. One week was not enough!
