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. Loungers and swinging hammock chairs await for relaxation. 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; ice maker; 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; living room; and master bedroom 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. Enjoy a luxury lounging experience in one of our spa robes provided in each room with morning coffee while listening to the ocean waves. 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; master bedroom; 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.TripAdvisor property ID 3231087...Read more

We couldn't have picked a more perfect house for a vacation that had to satisfy multiple family members with very varied ages and interests. My husband and I are 70 and took our 3 children with their spouses and 4 grandchildren, the oldest 4 and 3/4 (just ask her) for one week in February for a birthday celebration. The house is in a gated community in a beautiful part of Puerto Rico, one hour from San Juan. There are several beaches, one of which, Solara, is perfect for kids. The others, while the surf was too strong for the babies, were fine for the adults and playing in the sand. There is a lot to do right in the immediate community - a beach club with a large pool area for little kids, a tennis club, gym, spa, horse back riding, etc. We rented golf carts which in addition to being a perfect way to get around turned out to be perfect for putting the two babies to sleep.
Lance and Cheryl were extremely helpful and accommodating. Cheryl offered to do a food shop prior to our arrival so that we could settle in with the little ones the night we arrived. She also bought beach and pool toys and sippy cups which were much appreciated.
The pictures do not do the house and property justice - everything was in fact nicer than the photos. There was everything you might need in the kitchen, including condiments and spices. There were plenty of beach towels, chairs and even an umbrella. Having a washer and dryer was a true luxury.
The only difficulty we had all week was getting the kids out of the pool (and the adults out of the hot tub). We would highly recommend this house and look forward to a return visit.
Thanks for the note Laura. The comment about the Solaria beach is helpful in terms of pointing future guests to the best spots for kids. There is a reef off the shore of that beach that breaks the current and makes it a really nice spot for kids to play in the water. Your group did the beaching the best way - rent a couple of golf carts and explore the Palmas beaches. Take care, and we hope to have you all back again.
