Palma Vista Penthouse Villa is a 3,500 sq. ft. property located at Seven Seas Beach, Fajardo, Puerto Rico. It is a 2 level Penthouse comprising a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and new Kenmore Elite Dishwasher, Refrigerator and Range/Oven. Large 1st level balcony and expansive 2nd level private terrace, 3 bedrooms (master suite with a king size bed; and two additional bedrooms each with queen size beds), For the baby we provide a “Foundations® SleepFresh® Celebrity™ Portable Crib”. There are three full bathrooms. The property is fully air-conditioned throughout. The villa has dedicated parking for two cars plus visitors parking. We also provide high quality bed linens, fluffy white towels and luxury toiletries, high speed internet access, 55' LCD Television with Direct TV programming, Apple TV, Blue Ray DVD player and portable sound system.

Palma Vista is an exclusive and secure gated community, very private (only 30 Villas) that boasts two communal pools, a children’s play area and a gazebo. Palma Vista is adjacent to El Conquistador Resort and Las Cabezas de San Juan.

The panoramic views from the villa and the terrace are beautiful. From the front, Las Cabezas de San Juan, The Lighthouse, Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. From the back are impressive panoramic views of El Yunque National Rain Forest and the Puerto Rican mountains and beautiful views of the countryside and its flora. The sunset and sunrise from the top terrace are exquisite. Please view our video taken on the Penthouse Terrace.

One of the top beaches on the island of Puerto Rico, Seven Seas Beach is a popular beach for families and for snorkeling around the adjacent coral reefs, and also various water sports. The clear waters are teeming with vibrant tropical fish around coral reef areas. Seven Seas Beach is also extremely safe for children, as offshore reefs protect the beach from waves and currents. The region is part of the National Parks System and is considered a 'World Blue Flag Beach'. In order to obtain the Blue Flag distinction, a beach has to comply with a set of very strict standards in terms of water quality, safety and services, environmental education and information. Blue Flag Beaches are continually monitored for water and land environmental safety.

Seven Seas Beach, with spectacular blue waters and a beautiful sand beach is located at Las Croabas, Fajardo, Puerto Rico.

In addition to being located directly at Seven Seas Beach, which means you do not need a car to get to the beach, only minutes away and within easy walking distance, are the beautiful beaches of Playa Escondida (Hidden Beach), Playa Colora (Red Beach) and Governor's Beach, which are three of the most secluded beaches you can find. This means that it is a romantic spot, it's certainly a great place for snorkeling and just to relax. Playa Escondida means 'hidden' and Playa Colora 'hot/red beach' in Spanish. In order for it to be hidden, and virtually unused, it is in an out-of-the way place — you have to walk about 15 minutes via a trail through a mangrove forest to get there. But the prize is worth it — finding a pretty, secluded strip of beach like this one is always a pleasure. Also the Governor's Summerhouse is at Playa Escondida. Playa Escondida is very safe for snorkeling, swimming and/or just to contemplate the beautiful panoramic views in very calm waters.

Several nearby islands like; Icacos, Palomino and Palominito provide even more opportunities for fantastic snorkeling, hiking and exploring. Local companies or at local Marinas you can get and organize guided tours to take you for a fun day. Especially popular are the Kayak Tours of the Bioluminescent Laguna Grande, which is in Seven Seas Beach and next to Palma Vista Villa. Also 7 minutes by car and in the town of Fajardo ferryboats can take you to Vieques and Culebra, with more places to explore and World-renowned beaches to enjoy. Vieques and Culebra can also be reached by air from Ceiba Airport. Ceiba Airport, which is a 20-minute drive from Seven Seas and Palma Vista Villa, also services flights to other nearby island such as the US Virgin Islands. Air Flamenco operating from Ceiba airport offer flights to San Juan, Arecibo, Ponce and the islands of Culebra, Vieques, St Thomas, St Croix, Tortola, St Martin, Anguilla and the Dominican Republic. Seeing more of the island is easy when you take a side trip to see its natural attractions as a part of a day at the beach. A perfect example is El Yunque National Rainforest, which is 22.8 km (14.2 miles) from Seven Seas Beach and Palma Vista Villa. The variety of places with the best seafood you will enjoy is overwhelming using local fresh ingredients and produce and always a perfect service and a smile. From local traditional cuisine to international high-end restaurants at the Waldorf Astoria El Conquistador Resort, just 2 km (1.2 miles) from Palma Vista Villa.

About Kevin Sherratt

The Property is owned by Kevin and Jay

Kevin Sherratt purchased this villa in 2009

Why Kevin Sherratt chose Fajardo

Seven Seas Beach on the East Coast of Puerto Rico, where Palma Vista Villa is located, is in our opinion, one of the most beautiful parts of Puerto Rico, and is home to some of the best tourist attractions the island has to offer, such as El Yunque National Rain Forest and the Bio-Luminescent Bay. As well, the nearby Fajardo Ferry terminal provides easy access to the islands of Vieques and Culebra. The nearby Ceiba airport provides regular flights to the US Virgin Islands, Vieques, Culebra and San Juan.

The villa is quiet and peaceful - from the front you have wonderful panoramic views of the beach and ocean, from the rear you can see the Puerto Rican mountains and El Yunque National Rain Forest. There are some great local restaurants to dine and the villa is next to the El Conquistador Resort.

At this villa you do not need a car to get to the beach because you are literally at the beach!

What makes this villa unique

Peace. Tranquility. Privacy. Luxury living. Two Levels. 3,500 sq ft. Spacious, expansive Penthouse Terrace and large 1st Level Balcony. Light and airy with great views from all rooms. Stunning beach, ocean and rain forest views. Three full bathrooms and three bedrooms. 55' LCD TV - Direct TV. WiFi. Great local dining.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I Just wanted to thank you both for sharing your beautiful place in Fajardo. I was really impressed with the landscaping in the pool area and we often had the garden and pool completely to ourselves. It was a very relaxing vacation. Far from the hustle and bustle of Condado.



We discovered Hidden beach....and definitely found it pristine and beautiful. We also hiked towards the light house along Las Croabas beach and found that beach deserted and equally pristine. The Rain Forest was equally beautiful. We did venture into Old San Juan one evening for dinner but basically hung out in the Fajardo area. We took the boat out to Icacos Island for snorkelling as well....though our favorite beach for snorkeling was at Hidden Beach. The tour of the Mangroves and Light house was within walking distance of your place.



We explored the local dining.....El Estacion was our favorite. I also like Ensalada de Carucho...and liked the little place down the street on the right.......great for lunch.



We only did Breakfast in the Villa. We also did a Happy Hour on the balcony before dinner.....though never cooked dinner or used the grill.....always went out.



Having the wireless and flat screen with news etc was great as well. Thanks for the Music selection. Also the roof top area was a great place to hang out as well.....Marsha and I adopted that shower and bathroom as ours.



Best regards

Everything I Was Hoping For... AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5

If I had to distill my stay here into 3 words, it would read: "Definitely Coming Back!" This villa is by far the nicest in the entire Palma Vista complex. My entire trip was enhanced by how fantastic the accommodations are as well as the location. To begin with, the condo is spacious and beautifully decorated. It comes with all the amenities you could want from a resort hotel but with privacy and an authentically personal touch. The kitchen was so nicely appointed that it will make you WANT to cook. Both patios are so inviting that it makes you WANT to relax outside with a coffee, a drink or just to gaze at the beautiful views. And the views... so close that it makes you WANT to go outside and explore. Being able to walk to 3 different beaches, or walk through a forest, or take a short drive to the El Yunque Rainforest really made me enjoy the trip more than I had hoped for. It was especially helpful that I didn't feel suffocated by cloying, tourist-focused attractions. In short: I'll be back again. AND I'M STAYING HERE!

5 Star Palma Vista Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed staying in this beautiful villa. The villa is beautifully decorated and super clean! It has big bright windows and very spacious! It has beautiful ocean views and in an enclosed quiet community. The beach across the villa had great snorkeling. The pool area was clean and kids had a blast! The manager went out of her way to make sure we found our way around the community and directed us to great restaurants and excursions. Honestly, I would stay here again!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our 4 boys. Plenty of room. We had everything we needed. Boys loved the pool. We hiked from our condo to the lovely private beaches through mangrove forests spying lizards and crabs along the way. Hilda and Kevin could be reached via text with any questions we had. We took day trips to Old San Juan and El Yunque, both easy drives from the condo.

Great condo, great views, great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Palma Vista was very relaxing. The condo was very nice. We would normally not stay some place like this, but decided to splurge because we talked the kids into coming. Everything was high quality and we had plenty of room. The kitchen was beautiful with upgraded appliances. Bedrooms were spacious with queen size beds or larger. The terrace was pretty darn cool. We enjoyed spending time up there and taking in the view. The location was good. El Yunque and Laguna Grande bioluminescent bay were in close proximity, both very enjoyable and interesting. Seven Seas beach was wonderful. We spend time there several days. There are many restaurants in the vicinity. It was nice not having the hustle bustle of San Juan, which was pretty hectic.

Perfect couple get away place

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a perfect spot to enjoy some time away. You are able to walk to the bio bay tour, dinner, the beach, etc. There is only one master bedroom though, the other 2 bedrooms share a bath off a main hall~ no big deal, just an fyi. The rooftop really makes the condo amazing!

We went over to El Conquistador one night. It is getting a bit tired and is not as "rockin" as we thought it was going to be.

If you are the "no frills" type, then Fajardo is a good town to stay. If you are a bit "higher maintenance" then Fajardo may not be your kind of town.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review of your stay at Palma Vista Villa. We note your comments about the bathrooms. The marketing states that there is one ensuite bathroom, which is part of the master bedroom. The two additional bedrooms are on the 1st level and on the 2nd level - a total of 3 full bathrooms for guest use. Fajardo is the perfect location for easy access to all the best that Puerto Rico has to offer, especially the Bio Bay, El Yunque National Rainforest, the Islands of Palomino, Icacos, Vieques, and Culebra. As well, all the beautiful beaches. Fajardo is well known for its natural sites, resources and beaches, marinas, Waldorf Astoria El Conquistador Resort, etc.
