Beautiful beach location

  • 4 of 5
Our family of 5 (parents and 3 adult children) stayed at Villa Palmira for a week in May 2014. We were very happy with the choice of Villa Palmira and it's location in Humacao. Humacao was a great location for accessing the eastern end of PR, with an easy drive (50 minutes) to San Juan as well. The neighborhood in which the house is located is lovely, with essentially a private beach just a short walk from the house. We enjoyed the waves at the beach...the water is not deep and there was no undertow. There's also a beautiful nature preserve a short walk down the beach, with both walking/biking trails and kayaking available.
The house is nice, but not luxury (if you want stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, this may not be the right home for you). We found the furnishings and bedding to be very comfortable. The house has A/C and fans, but 2 of the ceiling fans were in need of repair. There were portable fans available as well, so the broken ceiling fans did not negatively impact our stay. The owner of the house is very responsive and helpful. This is a nice, comfortable, Puerto Rican vacation home, perfect for people who are interested in spending time outdoors and experiencing a local Puerto Rican community.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We are glad to see you had a good time and made it over to the nature center, which is truly remarkable. We agree Humacao is a great location to see PR from, especially if it is your first visit. So, close to the rain forest, off shore islands and the Beachs on the east are people friendly, generally with small waves and warm waters. Thanks again.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5
I recently stayed at Villa Palmira with 5 female friends and had a wonderful
time. We had a great time at
your house and thoroughly enjoyed staying there. We enjoyed the beach and
found the waters quite
warm, the bottom sandy and the conditions safe and quite swimmable. The
beach also has a lovely view
out toward Vieques Island in the distance and Monkey Island closer to the
shore. While staying at the
house, we ventured out quite a bit for shopping and a variety of
activities. One of the most memorable
was a trip to Monkey Island for snorkeling among schools of tropical fish.
Our guide was Captain Paco,
a local fellow, who is quite a character. Very cool trip! We also did the Bioluminescent Bay tour, an absolute must!! The kayaking part can be a little tricky because it is very dark and you are paddling through a very narrow area that leads to the BioBay, but still worth it. We also took the ferry to Culebra Island. The ferry ride was comfortable, fairly quick and very cheap, well worth it to see Flamenco Beach! Absolutely gorgeous, but a little to crowded for me!
Love Puerto Rico and I have traveled there by myself and never once did I feel unsafe. You just have to be a smart traveler, as you would when you travel anywhere!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I agree with everything you say! We feel it is just great when people use our home as a home base for travel around the island. There is so much to see and do. The people are friendly and welcoming. It is a shame all the bad press the island gets, when its a wonderful place to visit and tour about. Congratulations to you and your friends. It always pays off to be adventurous. Thanks again.

Enjoyed the quiet privacy and many extras.

  • 5 of 5
We appreciated the privacy of the house..the week went too fast! We
spent the first day mostly at Villa Palmira on the beach finding star
fish and sand dollars. The next day we went to Monkey Island on
Captain Paco's boat and saw outstanding features snorkeling. After that, we went to the rain forest. Spent Thursday at the house,on the beach and and walking in the adjacent nature preserve. Friday we took a trip on the ferry to Flamenco Beach on Culebra...outstanding day! I got up early Saturday morning before we left to watch the crabs awake and trot to the water. Can't
emphasize enough our appreciation of having many details and
conveniences worked out for us...towels, beach bags, umbrella, beach
chairs, cooler, advice and directions to the attractions and
restaurants. There was hardly a downside to our stay. If my wife and
I come back to PR with a large group, we'd stay at Villa Palmira
again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We encourage renters who want to experience Puerto Rico like you did. That's why we give a 30 page pdf file to our renters showing many different venues to visit and giving directions that take the headache out of going there. We believe traveling in Puerto Rico is safe, extremely interesting, and a great deal of fun.

This is Puerto Rico Style...

  • 5 of 5
If you want the real feel of Puerto Rico living this is it. My wife and I traveled here for the best Thanksgiving yet with my 2 children, 12 and 16, along with my mother and her friend. The house was was beautiful, comfortable and clean and had every thing we could possibly need. The neighbor is great and the people that live there are very friendly.

The beach is a wonderful natural sandy beach and the oceans gentle rolling waves are relaxing yet large enough to provide fun for the kids and me. We took some amazing sunrise pictures and wonderful walks on the virtually private beach. We also discovered a trail from the neighborhood into the adjacent nature preserve and stumbled on some old WWII lookout post on the cliff with some amazing views of Viequez island.

We have been to Puerto Rico numerous times in the past but this is the best location we have found yet. The location offers you the feel of being on a tropical island while giving you access to all the "convenience of home" with it proximity to Humacao.

Thank you Jim an Marilyn for sharing this amazing place with us and we will be returning again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I agree the community is a wonderful example of Puerto Rican life, but also offers with the unusual opportunity to be right on the beach. The neighborhood is composed of middle class Puerto Rican families and expats from the US and Europe, which gives it a unique blend of people, all of whom are very friendly. It is a great asset to be able to walk into the nature center and use the trails for shady "jungle" hikes that open up onto its lagoon or a hidden beach. Of couse, kayaks can be rented for paddling on the lagoon, making it a small eco experience. We also like the long walks that can be taken on the beach which travels north all the way--about a mile--to the beach town of Punta Santiago. As a jogger, I've used the trails in the park following the beach to run on a "hard" surface (avoding the loose sand), while in view of the beach and Caribbean. It makes for a lovely morning outing. We are glad to hear you had a good time and pleased you will be back!

We Loved Having Coffee On the Beach Every Morning!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks to Marilyn and Jim for renting us there lovely home. We appreciated the comfortable furniture and beds, love the colors tropical feel of the rooms and the great proximity to the beach. I took less than one minute to walk there from the house. Almost every morning I walked down with a beach chair and a cup of coffee and sat under the palms before others awoke in the house. It was great to get access to the Palmas del Mar Beach club at the nearby resort. We spent two afternoons there, having lunch swimming in the pools and then dinning at the resort afterwards. I especially enjoyed Blue Hawaii, where we had great sushi. Our trips to the rain forest and Old San Juan were also special and it was great both could be accomplished in less than an hour of driving. We vacationed on the west coast of Puerto Rico before, but love the east coast and will becoming back there in future.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. It sounds like you had a great time! We agree that Eastern Puerto Rico allows access to many interesting adventures without traveling far. Western PR is lovely and worth a visit, but certainly not as convenient as our area for having many interesting experiences in a short vacation of a week or less. (We hope you hiked into the rain forest and swam in the La Mina water falls and saw the very nice tourist info center while there. Both experiences shouldn't be missed. If not, maybe next time.) We agree having the beach just 38 second away from the front door gives the home a special place in the community. Once on the beach you have great views of the Vieques Island and the nearby Monkey Island. Many guests have enjoyed a trip out to monkey island with Captain Paco from the Naguabo Playa dock. It's a great time for kids...diving for star fish and feeding the tropical fish that take bread right from your hand! And of course you get to see the monkey colony from his boat. Again, we are very pleased you enjoyed yourself and hope you will come back soon.
