About Leonardo Hernandez

Leonardo is originally from Puerto Rico, although he and Amy have called the Northern Virginia suburbs outside Washington DC home for the past 10 years. Leonardo, Amy, and their two dachshunds love to travel and frequently vacation in Puerto Rico, spending time with family and enjoying the many beautiful beaches and tropical forests. Leonardo seized the opportunity to purchase this condo and spent nearly a year decorating and furnishing the condo. Leonardo and Amy view the condo as a true second home and enjoy spending as much time there as their schedules permit.

Leonardo Hernandez purchased this condo in 2005

Why Leonardo Hernandez chose Puerto Rico

Aguadilla is called the “Garden of the Atlantic.” This nickname was given for the many colorful sponges and marine life prevalent in the Aguadilla Bay. Aguadilla has many excellent scuba diving, snorkeling, and surfing spots, not to mention some of the best beaches in Puerto Rico. Aguadilla has its own international airport (BQN), part of what was Ramey Air Force Base. Another Ramey remnant is the 18-hole Punta Borinquen Golf Course. Designed originally for President Eisenhower, the course is open to the public and features spectacular ocean views. Aguadilla’s location also makes our condo an excellent home base for exploring western Puerto Rico.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is truly a home away from home. Leonardo & Amy have tried to include many details to make their guests feel welcome and relaxed. For example, all beds and bath linens are premium quality and all basic toiletries are provided for guest use. The owners even provide beach towels for use at either of the two complex pools or nearby beaches. But perhaps the best feature is the location itself. The complex is situated up on the cliff overlooking famous Crash Boat beach and the entire Aguadilla Bay – arguably one of the best views in all of Puerto Rico.

Puerta Del Mar Villa # 200073

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time staying in villa #200073! It was in a safe gated community (part of it is still under construction but that didn't interfere with our stay at all), with a breathtaking view of Crashboat beach from the infinity pool. The unit was well maintained and extremely clean, and the pictures were a true representation of what the unit looks like. The owner was so easy to work with and went over and above to accomodate us, which was very much appreciated!!! The attention to detail in this unit was impeccable, from the decor to the beach supplies to the thoughtfully prepared binders w/ helpful tips on where to visit & eat in the area - they thought of everything. The reccomendation to eat at Machete Rojo was an excellent one, as the food was delicious and prices very reasonable. Crashboat beach was a 2 min. drive from the condo. and very enjoyable. We also drove to Rincon for the surfing and really enjoyed those beaches - Marias beach is one name I can remember. Thanks for making a home away from home where all can feel totally comfortable. Only regret was that our trip was too short! Thanks again!

Very well stocked and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed 4 nights. The community is very clean, safe and relaxing. The condo is stocked with nearly everything you would need to live there. The beds are more comfortable than my bed at home. The owner Leonardo was extremely quick to respond to any of our needs. And the location is central to all of my favorite beaches and hikes. We really had an excellent time.

Let me begin by saying that you should not second guess yourself when looking at this rental, I always do and in this case I made the right decision. The condo was perfect. There was absolutely nothing that you could ask for because it had everything. In addition to everything being labeled it was very clean! The transaction was smooth as silk. Leonardo was the easiest person to work with, upon final payment you are forward the keys, the gate remote and directions from the airports. I felt very safe as the security guards are on top of there game always. My only regret is that I didn't stay my entire visit there, I spent a couple of days in Condado, San Juan and the condo was nothing in comparison. I would highly recommend this place to my friends and family. In addition I would like to thank you Leonardo for forwarding the item left behind. Rest assure this rental and the people that own it are top notch!!

Outstanding and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful condo which includes everything you need to have the perfect vacation! Condo is so nice. There are movies to watch on a rainy day, two pools, all supplies needed. There were three of us, and the hammock was almost always in use! I cannot say thank you enough to Amy and Leo for their kind hospitality in renting out this beautiful home. The beds are a perfect night's sleep! The security and employees of the condos are wonderful and kind. We met so many folks at the infinity pool, and really felt the sense of family that this place offers. Very close to Crash Boat Beach. Don't forget your snorkel! The "book" contains alot of information on the area. We would go back there tomorrow if we could! Thanks again Leo and Amy.

Place is Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We initially arrived at a place that we hated, and contacted the owner of this property last minute to see if we could check in asap. He was so helpful with directions and quick check-in. The place was even better than in the pictures. I worked in real estate in the U.S., including many vacation rentals, and never encountered a rental property owner as genuine as this one and as caring. The place was immaculate, great location, safe and secure parking. I would live in this condo if I could. There were 4 of us total. There was more than enough room. The location is great, sunsets are perfect, pool is epic, and the people there are awesome. We weren't there to watch movies, but the owner has the best movie collection I've ever seen. We watched the Dark Knight four times, but kept falling asleep because the couches were so comfortable. All beach equipment is provided. The owner also has personally typed up binders of all restaurants, attractions, beaches etc., along with directions on how to get to them. He also typed up a whole binder that details the synopsis of each movie he has. There are pictures of his dachshunds framed on the wall, which are classic. We went surfing in Rincon most days, which is about a 20-25 minute drive on scenic roads. Crash Boat Beach is in plain view from the pool. The place is very clean, water pressure is so00oo good, and there is a bidet!!! Epic views from the pool. Pool is a very short walk away. We saw a whale. I will be staying here again.
