About Andi and John Stix

The Stix Family welcomes you to the Hamptons of Puerto Rico. Our family has enjoyed coming to Palmas for over 30 years. There are so many activities and delicious dining, that it is difficult for us to leave... We are sure that you will feel the same way as well! My husband, John, is in the rock-n-roll industry and I, Andi, am an educational consultant. So, getting away from the Big Apple is essential for us!

Andi and John Stix purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Andi and John Stix chose Humacao

The Puerto Ricans consider Palmas del Mar their second home and top vacation area, just as New Yorkers run to the Hamptons in the summer. So, if they feel that this is the prime location in Puerto Rico, who are we to challenge them? With 25 tennis courts, two golf courts, horseback riding along a scenic beach area, exercise gym, and good restaurants, it is hard to beat! We selected this unit because it overlooks the largest beach area in Palmas with an unobstructed view. Only 10 minutes away, we kayak and hike in Humacao's Nature Reserve in and around their gorgeous lagoons.

What makes this apartment unique

**We have a special relationship with vendors and can offer you over $300 worth of coupon values for local restaurants, shops, and sport activities with booking.

Incredible Views & Beach Access

  • 5 of 5

When I walked out onto the balcony, I thought I reached Nirvana. The view is spectacular and the condo is everything presented in the photos. The sound of the ocean put me to sleep every night, and I’m only 30 years old! My wife and I had the time of our lives. We played tennis, went bike riding and boogie boarding, ate scrumptious food at the local restaurants and swam in the pools every day. We enjoyed walking the beach and the Pterocapus Forest, which is right here in Palmas. I had to go back to work, but my wife decided to extend her stay by two days before she has to return to work. Andi was extremely helpful every step of the way…. Can’t wait to return! Thanks again.

LOVED!!!!

  • 5 of 5

After staying in this villa, my husband and I had a conversation about buying a unit in Palmas. Crescent Beach is by far the best section of this large resort. We walked back and forth between our lounge chairs on the beach and jumping in the pools, only steps away. We loved hanging out on the wrap around porch and sipping coffee in the morning. The view is overwhelming. Every day, a women’s group does exercises in the pool at 11 AM, they even have yoga on the beach. No charge! Andi’s unit was so clean and immaculate and well maintained. We’ve seen other properties here, and there is no comparison. I’ve already told Andi that I want to come back in November with a few girlfriends for a reunion. She is great to deal with….. this is a gem and if you can book it, lucky you!

We had the best time.....

  • 5 of 5

I have been raving about how great this apartment is and what a wonderful vacation we had. This beachfront property is roomy, comfortable, extremely clean, beautifully decorated and had all of the amenities you could want or need. The large patio which overlooks the beach had doors off of the living room and master bedroom. It was so great to start the day with a cup of tea and a good book with such a beautiful view of the palm trees and ocean. Palmas del Mar has everything you need - golf courses, tennis courts, pools, shop, restaurants. We took day trips to Fajardo and Luquillo which were also fun. Andi was great to work with. We had to delay our trip home due to a blizzard and were able to stay on a few extra days. She went out of her way to accommodate us. We are already planning our return trip!!!

Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this complex, condo, Palmas del Mar - everything! Andi was on top of everything. The information she provides in advance of your arrival anticipates all you needs - right down to where to stop to load up of groceries on your way from the airport. This was our first visit to PR. What a great vacation destination and Palmas del Mar has to be one of the best places to stay. We checked other places and wondered if we made the right choice - when we arrived we visited the other properties we considered - and we determined we made the right choice. The condo pictures don't do the place or views justice. Well decorated and appointed. Many upgrades. You couldn't ask for a better location. Great beach. Great pool. Tennis and Golf close by. Secure, clean, friendly.

We hope to come back again and stay longer. 2 weeks goes fast.

Excellent View and Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The unit itself is spacious, well-equipped and is tastefully decorated. The view is fabulous and includes the beach, well-manicured grounds, and pool. The location is within EASY access to bot beach and pool. The office nook and free wi-fi helped me stay up-to-date on work. We didn't want to leave!

Great Ocean Views - Well Equipped and Very Comfortable Condo

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for renting your condo to us. We loved the condo and thought it was definitely the best one we have stayed in since we have been have been coming to Palmas. The terrace and the views are to die for.

The condo was incredibly well equipped. We did not lack for anything. We especially appreciated the great quality of the towels and the comfort of the bed. It was like being at the Four Seasons Hotel.

Best yet, we had lots of sunshine everyday we were there. I know you had something to do with that!
