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 Puerto Rico

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

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days and really enjoyed ourselves. The condo is very well appointed and very clean. The view is spectacular and we enjoyed the deck. Andi is a great host. The beach is a little rough, and also has a pretty strong rip tide, so be careful.

Owner's Response: I will create a picture file showing all future guests the layout of the beach: Where to bring young children, where to jump the waves, and where possible rip tides may form. (Which is not in front of Crescent Beach). Palmas Del Mar has 3 miles of beach. Just 20 steps to the left of us is buffered by a reef where everyone swims and is often used by young parents and their babies. Oftentimes, the ocean is like a sheet of glass. So sorry that you caught a patch of rough ocean.

Wonderful return visit

  • 5 of 5

This is our second trip to PR and to this beautiful condo. Without hesitation we wanted to work with Andi and stay at Palmas del Mar. She is helpful and makes everything easy with instructions. The condo is wonderful, beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. We spent the first two days touring Old San Juan and then came to relax in beautiful Palmas del Mar. The view of the beach from the patio is nothing less than breath taking. The pools, beach, palm trees, turquoise warm water and area restaurants called us back and didn't disappoint on this return visit. We had a fantastic time. Thank you again Andi!

Lots of TLC

  • 5 of 5

Wow. We had a great time at Palmas Del Mar. Beautiful view. Beach, pools and lush foliage. Everything you need to have a lovely time in Puerto Rico. Andi goes out of her way to make sure you have everything you need and to give you information about places to go, where to eat, where to shop and anything else you can think of. The beach there is beautiful. We went down the beach, a short walk to a great little place for a drink and lunch. Our first time in PR. People were wonderful.

We'll be back. Thank you Andi for all you did to make our trip wonderful.

An AMAZING Presidents' Week

  • 5 of 5

What a week to escape the cold of NY! My family of four had a truly wonderful stay at Andi's perfect beachfront/pool front getaway! The condo is pristinely clean and so comfortable - really just pack your bathing suits, shorts, flip flops and toothbrushes! The large terrace is the focal point of the unit overlooking the BEAUTIFUL VIEW! Three pools and the beach are right outside your door! We were lucky with the weather which just made the week even better! Andi is a total pleasure to work with and is extremely helpful on all levels. We give unit 219 an overwhelmingly EXCELLENT rating! We are missing it already!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thank you for a memorable family vacation!! 😎

Extremely well maintained 2bdrm condo with unbelievable water views

  • 5 of 5

There is everything to like and Nothing to complain about. This 3rd floor condo has a large balcony with expansive views of the beach as well as the 3 pools. The sound of the waves was so peaceful! The condo is spacious and very comfortable and feels like a home, not a rental or hotel suite. It is well decorated and FULLY equipped, besides being recently remodeled. It was clean and fresh, without that damp or "Lysol" smell. The overall Palmas del Mar complex is very classy and secure, and everyone we met were very friendly. The owner provides a wealth of information to help fully enjoy your stay and any travels around PR. Toughest decision every day was; beach, pool or both! When we come back, we don't think we would chance staying anywhere else.

Wake up with the sound, site and smell of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This unit a just steps from the beach and also has three pools nearby with new LED color-changing lights. There are so many things to do at Palmas Del Mar there's no reason to leave the complex during your stay. It has restaurants, grocery stores, retails stores, a casino, bars, tennis, golf, gym and even a nature path to walk around. Fun for people of all ages. The unit itself has all the amenities you could ever need including a hair dryer, cable tv, air conditioning, and a coffee maker. But the best part is the outdoor patio overlooking the ocean and pools with a table and lounge chairs.
