Puerto Del Mar Incredible!

  • of 5

Several months ago we made the decision to spend our holiday vacation in Puerto Rico. When it comes to traveling we are not rookies and have visited many islands and spent our time at beautiful places. We have rented from the Home Away site many times and have been satisfied with each place we have stayed.

As we started looking over all the choices in Puerto Rico we determined Aguadilla was a location we wanted to visit. As you start reviewing all the options especially at Puerto Del Mar, it was hard to select the perfect home. Many of the condos had similar photos showing the unbelievable sunsets and infinity pool. When we landed on Bert's site, we were quickly drawn to the beauty of the condo. Everything in the condo appeared updated and the furnishings were exactly what we would do if this was our own home. The essence of Home Away is to find a place that still makes you feel like you're home in terms of having the luxury of sleeping in a cozy bed along with having a beautiful home to relax after a long day at the beach. Bert's home has it all! The photos posted online match exactly what you'll see when you get there. They even have beach chairs, snorkeling gear, umbrellas, first aid kit, DVD player with variety of movies and games to name just a few.

What truly made the difference was our interaction with Bert. As mentioned we have used many Home Away rentals but NEVER did we have the experience of working with someone like Bert! From the very beginning even before we selected our home he provided constant communication and was always there to answer any questions or provide advice. This communication lasted for many months and as we arrived in Puerto Rico he followed up with us to make sure everything was good! When your thinking of someone that truly goes above and beyond the call of duty there is no one like Bert! He provided flyers of restaurants, beaches, entertainment spots etc. He has a wealth of knowledge and shared it with you freely.

I cannot say enough positive things about our time in Puerto Rico and staying at their condo in Aguadilla. This is a no-brainer decision and we will certainly be back here and know exactly where we will stay! Thank you from the bottom of our heart for making our trip unforgettable!!

Beautiful getaway in Aguadilla!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this immaculate, charming, Caribbean paradise was wonderful! Bert, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful, providing advice, links, and follow-up to our every question and desire. He really went the extra mile! Tastefully decorated, wonderfully clean, this condo had a great ocean view and wonderful cross-breezes. We shut off the A/C on arrival and didn't need to use it once the rest of the vacation! The grounds are lovely and well-cared for - a tropical paradise! And the infinity pool, along with outdoor party-room, grill, seating and bathrooms, really is built to impress and allow your stay that extra level of luxury, privacy and convenience. We are definitely going back; I didn't want to leave!

Owner's Response: Carolyn, It's gratifying to receive such a wonderful Review....thanks so much. It doesn't surprise me that first time visitors to Puerto Rico always want to come back. I am delighted you and your family enjoyed your stay as much as you did, and that you enjoyed the comforts of home and the local dining spots. Yes, Minnesota may have its 10,000 lakes, but this Caribbean island gem named Puerto Rico, has its endless beaches...and they await you and your family. Thank you, once again for trusting us with your vacation; it was a pleasure to host you. Bert

A Perfect Getaway Location

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year in a row that my wife and I stayed at this property for the months of January and February. At the risk of repeating anything I may have said after last year's stay, this condo is everything it appears to be, and more. Beautifully furnished, terrific view from the terrace, great pools, super-convenient access to beaches, golf, restaurants. For a short stay or a long one, I highly recommend this property. Bert is an involved and attentive landlord who makes everything about getting to the condo and navigating the process as easy as it can be, which is a great help.

This part of Puerto Rico is terrific....away from the over-crowded San Juan area, very nice restaurants are plentiful, the city and waterfront of Aguadilla is an undiscovered gem. Lots of surfing right in and around Aguadilla...don't even need to drive to Rincon for great waves and fun beach areas. The local golf course, Punta Borinquen, is inexpensive and is the only course we've ever seen that has ocean views from all 18 holes!

You can't miss with a stay at this property.

Owner's Response: Hi Brud, Thank you for such a glowing Review. It was a pleasure to host you and Jean again and you should know that the door to our Marbella unit will always be open to you. I think you just made a great case for anyone on the fence between the metropolitan area and the west coast of endless sunsets. Also, while I am not a golfer, you just gave me 18 reasons to walk the course at Punta Borinquen and marvel at those ocean views. Thank you for your return visit; it was a pleasure to host you again. Best regards, Bert

A Perfect Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son, and I stayed at Bert's condo when we went to visit family and see my cousin get married in PR. We really loved the condo-- it looked just like the pictures. It was comfortable, clean, and minutes from my cousin's house in Aguadilla. Bert made the booking process and the stay so easy that I kept feeling like I was forgetting something. The kitchen is stocked with supplies that you don't know you need until you get there. Almost everything we needed was available and ready to use. It was an easy drive to Walgreens or the supermarket. We didn't get to go Crashboat beach this time because of time constraints but it is so close and it's a beautiful beach (we've been there before). The pool was great. My only complaint would be that doing our laundry was a bit of an adventure so it discouraged us from doing laundry. On the other hand, who wants to do laundry on vacation anyway? More time at the pool or enjoying the amazing view from the balcony.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Ricardo, Thank you for submitting your Review in record time (considering you just left the condo ten days ago); it is all the more appreciated. It was nice working with you throughout the reservation process. I'm glad that things you didn't even think you would need, were already there for you. As for the laundry issue, I wish I would have known; It would not have been a problem calling me. Maybe I could have had our cleaning lady come in and give you a hand. It would be a pleasure to host you and your family again. Thank you, once again for a wonderful Review. Bert

Our new second home.

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation experience truly started the day Bert and I connected. I instantly knew that we were in for a special experience. Not a question went unanswered. Our interaction blew any and all of my expectations out of the water.

The condominium layout is EXACTLY what you see in the photos. The décor is modern and thoughtfully put together. Your needs and wants have already been taken care of…from beach chairs to snorkeling equipment to a beach cooler, etc. The pride and love for this home-away-from-home is evident. And the view, oh the view from this condo, at sunset, is SPECTACULAR. It will leave you speechless.

Exploring this side of the Enchanted Island was truly an unexpected experience. Erroneously I believed that all of the “action” was in the metro area. There is so much to do and to get you started; a binder full of suggestions can be found in the condo. Crashboat beach, and its distance from the condo, quickly became a regular visit.

We visited the following restaurants and were not disappointed: The FuFu African Restaurant, Rico Sandwich (breakfast), Restaurant Libras Steak House and Seafood (the mofongo with churrasco is amazing!), Restuarante La Guardarraya, Villa Montana Beach Resort (very romantic with beach side tables) and D Rose Chocolate Factory (best coffee and chocolates EVER).

You will not be disappointed. In fact, you will start planning your next trip while you’re packing up to leave.

Thank you, Bert & Liz, for making this a memorable vacation and sharing with us your little piece of paradise. We look forward to going “home” in the near future.

Owner's Response: Danette, You honor us with our 50th Review !!! Thank you for submitting a Review that is so on point. From you initial Inquiry, it was a pleasure working with you. I am delighted that you felt comfortable in our condo and that took time to explore the west coast. I think we can agree that there is no shortage of action among the west coast towns and surrounding coastal restaurants. Please know that the doors to you "new second home" will always be open to you and Jorge. Mil gracias, Bert

Arrive at this private, gated, resort-style community and you'll soon forget the daily grind back home. Your escape to our 'Marbella' unit in Puerta Del Mar will be an unforgetable one. Here, 'mi casa es su casa' is re-defined in this Mediterranean-style complex perched 300' above the Atlantic Ocean, in full view from your private terrace. Located in the northwest corner of this 100x35 mile tropical paradise in the beach, surfing and fishing town of Aguadilla (a-gwah-DEE-yah), Puerta Del Mar is an award winning complex that joins other nearby ocean front towns in comprising the west coast region known as Porta Del Sol. It is here where Puerto Rico's most beautiful sunsets are showcased at every dusk, where the moon glistens over the calm ripples of the majestic Atlantic Ocean and where the local 'coqui' (miniature island frogs) sing into the night bringing closure to your first day. Your inner most vibes tell you, 'this will be a special vacation'. Read below; there IS more to know....
