About the property

6 Bedrooms, 1 game room, 4 full Bathrooms, 1 half Bathroom, Sleeps 16

A remarkably private home located in the most exclusive area of Palmas del Mar with many first-class amenities...a large Swimming Pool with a Jacuzzi surrounded by lush vegetation, Decks for sunbathing, a Private Jacuzzi, a Game/TV room with a Pool Table, a large generator that will cover the whole house, etc. You'll love to Grill by the pool in our stone BBQ and Wet Bar with refrigerator. A Modern Spacious Kitchen awaits you with a cozy Bay Window and an island with comfortable barstools that will help keep the party going and the chef accompanied. The Master Bedroom with a private porch and a romantic round Jacuzzi for two is unique. Of course the house is fully air conditioned. Finally, the ocean views from the pool and the second and third floor balconies are magnificent! Add the amenities that Palmas has to offer,like golf, Tennis, Beach Club, Equestrian Center, golf cart paths, Casino and you can sense how fantastic this place and your vacation will be. This house was built with all the comfort and amenities that an Owner ('me') felt were indispensable to enjoy the" Good Life".

Garden and green areas: Our house has 5,000 sq. ft of living area and is built on a one half acre of land bordering a very large green area. We grow on the property Orange, Great-fruit, Guava, Mango, Banana and Lemon trees. We also have beautiful orquids by the pool. The fruit from these trees attract all kinds of birds which chirp you to sleep and to wake up.(No roosters, thank God). We also border a large green area with lush vegetation and even a stream. A very special area for those who love the outdoors.

The technical features of the house: Our home is equipped with several technical features which can come in handy if for some reason there is a system wide problem with utilities. It has a large 50 amp generator that will power the whole house (including the 8 air conditioners) in the event of a power outage. This generator has an automatic transfer switch which will turn it on automatically when the power goes out and turn it off when it comes back. We also have a 25,000 gallon cistern that can be used if the water supply from the water utility is shut down ( not common ). The kitchen is equipped with a reverse osmosis water filter which supplies purified water to the sink in the kitchen and to the refrigerator (no need to buy water at the store!). While the above facilities may not be necessary, they could come in very handy should the unlikely situation arise. This house was built as a home for my family and has all the conveniences needed in case of an "event".

About Jose Beauchamp

Born and grew up in P.R. Studied at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Earned a law degree from the University of P.R. and a masters degree in law from the University of London. I retired when I was 55 years old except that I currently run the rental of my house and condo, which sometimes is a full time job!! ' You can go to Live and Life in Palmas, our'magazine's web site, and find out more about our resort and what it has to offer. I live in Palmas (of course), about one mile from the rental property.

Jose Beauchamp purchased this house in 1996

Why Jose Beauchamp chose Candelero Abajo

I actually had the house built for my family with the idea of living in it, which I did for 16 years. That is why the house has so many amenities (it was not built as an investment but as a home for me and my family). The reason I chose Palmas del Mar to build my house was that It was, and is, a resort combined with a community. It is by the sea, with beaches, and other amenities like golf, tennis, horsebackriding, boating, etc. It has two marinas with sailboats for hire, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, not to mention the 12 restaurants, hotel with casino. In short, it is like a little town where many of the homeowners travel by golf carts or jog on the paths. What's not to like? Oh, I forgot security. It is a gated community with security guards constantly patrolling the areas. Palmas is such a special place that we have just bought a condo by the beach to rent short term (listing .3614337).

What makes this house unique

The location of the house gives it a beautifull view of the ocean and the island of vieques. The living area, including the rooms face the eastern view and most of the time will receive the tradewinds which come from the east. Kids love this house with the pool, jacuzzi and game room. I guess I'm basically a kid too because I love this house also!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful vacation together as a family. So much relaxation at the pool, fun at the beach club, touring the place on a golf cart, and amazing food at Pura Vida. And that's just what we did here at Palmas del Mar! Rainforest, water falls, beaches & snorkeling too. Thank you! The hose was fantastic!

Gorgeous house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is gorgeous! Even better than the pictures show. We greatly enjoyed our stay here. We had a small event here that was pre-approved with the owner with just the people staying in the house. It was an amazing house and the manager Rudy and Jose were very helpful to us. My only warning when you get that many people together if you are traveling in and out at different times the house is in a gated neighborhood (like nearly all of Palmas del Mar) and there are two beepers. The gates are fully closed all weekend and 6pm-8am during the week. Sometimes it felt like all we were doing was running up and down to the gate to let people in and out. However, that would not detour us from staying here again and nearly all of Palmas del Mar housing is the same way. The house is not far from the beach by golf cart and the marina has great places to eat. You can definitely keep yourself entertained in the area without ever leaving! The house has ample refrigerator space with even a wine fridge and air conditioning is great through the house. Small things like small soap and shampoo and conditioner in the bathrooms were very nice! There was also a very nice portable speaker we could hook phones up to for music. The pool has multiple depths and worked well for both the children and adults. We were there a week but really wish we could have stayed longer!

Just perfect for a big family

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, well kept, plenty of space for the entire family. The game room was perfect with the pool table and the kids as well as the adults loved it. The pool was just the right size to accommodate the 14 of us. We had a wonderful time and hope to come back soon.

Great location. Easy to work with owner. Nice house for larger groups

  • 5 of 5

Two families, totaling 9 people stayed at Jose's home for 1 week. He was really easy to work with, helpful, and quick to respond. The house was clean and large enough for all of to have our own space, but at the same time there were gathering areas where we could enjoy each others' company. It is also nice that the house is close to everything but still safe and quiet. Thanks for letting us enjoy your home and island! Great view of the marina and Vieques Island!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Jose's place for 4 days to celebrate my 50th. The place was great and such beautiful views. We were a total of 5 couples and our stay was very comfortable. We took advantage of all the amenities the house had to offer, including the outdoor wine cooler (a pleasant surprise). We did go out (Old San Juan, Yunke Rainforest, Luquillo beach), but spent more time than originally planned in the house because we felt so comfortable and had everything we needed to party. Our stay concluded with a tremendous Superbowl Party (A Pats victory was icing on the cake). The location manger, Rudy, was great and gave us some good tips as to where to go eat in Palmas. We will certainly do it again, I hope in the not so distant future. Thanks for everything.
