About the property

2 Bedroom/2 Bath With Partial Water View.

The apartment is a luxurious and spacious two bedroom/2 bath unit located at the West Coast development known as Puerta Del Mar (Garden of the Sea)

The master bedroom is a bedroom/bathroom suite. The apartment was the firsts model apartment built by the builder and is tastefully decorated with contemporary flair by their interior designer and our own personal touches as well. It is truly a beautifully decorated unit. The unit is air conditioned and has washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, dining room which sits eight, living room, separate den with a 42 inch TV, Stereo, cable and wireless internet. The apartment is located on the third floor with a partial ocean view from the terrace.

Beach chairs and towels are available for lounging on Crash

Boat Beach. You will find this apartment, clean, spacious and a stress free environment. Movie rentals can be made from the nearby shopping center where you can stock up on groceries for your stay here.

There are two pools, one of which is an infinity pool

and clubhouse with panoramic views of Deschero Island and Crash Boat Beach. There is a second gated pool with a waterfall and nearby, a children's playground. Residents and guests can enjoy the numerous gazebos, miradores, and sun decks throughout the development. In season, we are told that you can see whales in their yearly migration.

Puerta Del Mar is a Mediterranean style condominium development built in 2007 consisting of 260 apartments.

The development sits 300 feet above sea level with panoramic views of Deschero Island and Crash Boat Beach. A left turn onto Route 107 and another left leads you down a windy road to Crash Boat Beach, 3 minutes away. On the beach you can seek shade from the Palm

Trees or settle down at a picnic table where you can enjoy the authentic island cuisine from the vendors who make their living there when in season. Have an ice cold beer while relaxing, swimming in crystal clear waters and if you stay long enough, and you will, enjoying the magnificent sunset. Here you can walk in snorkeling and diving and enjoy the beautiful sponges and marine life that have accumulated over the centuries at the piers.

The condominium is approximately 8 minutes from Rafael Hernandez Airport, minutes to Route 107 which leads to Mayaguez where there is the Mayaguez University, Casinos and one of the best shopping centers on the Island. Along the way, make sure you stop at the Mayaguez Zoo which is unique in that it was built into the Island landscape. The cinema is also close by.

Head in the opposite direction and you can visit the Camuy caves where you will marvel at this eighth wonder and your guide explains how the caves were born.

Surfing: Go to nearby Isabella with great waves off the

Atlantic Ocean, and Rincon, a surfer's paradise. Popular

surfing beaches are Wilderness Surfing Beach and Gas Chambers, or you just walk and explore the nearly desolate beaches, all within 10 minutes from the condo.

Golfing: Check out the nearly Punta Borinquen Golf Course. Also nearby are ice skating, horse back riding, the Punta Borinquen Lighthouse and the Las Cascadas Aquadic Theme Park. Don't forget to check out the local restaurants.

A day trip to San Juan is a leisurely two hour trip where you can experience and view the old fort, El Moro, still standing guard and protecting the City. Here you can park your car and travel through the City via the Trolley Cars and go outlet shopping from famous designers. You'll find casinos, dining and dancing.

About Lillian and Peter Schermerhorn

My husband, who is Dutch/Irish, and I ( I am Puerto Rican descent) met 20 years ago. When we first met, he asked me when was the last time I had been to the Island. I was born and raised in New York and only had a faint memory of visiting when I was a toddler. So he purchased tickets and off we went to the motherland and we fell in love with it and have been treking back to Puerto Rico every since. We always find something different to do, and enjoy our stay every time.

Lillian and Peter Schermerhorn purchased this condo in 2008

Why Lillian and Peter Schermerhorn chose Puerto Rico

We stayed in Dorado Beach when the thought hit us that we might as well buy a condo since we enjoyed the Island so much. However, everywhere we looked, the properties were sold out. A friend had just come back from Puerto rico and told us about this property. Not having much time to furnish and decorate the place, we decided to purchase the model. It was the best decision we have ever made.

What makes this condo unique

8 minutes from the airport. Close proximity to many recreational activities and shopping. And , of course, the beautiful beaches!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I planned a last minute getaway and wound up staying for 10 days at Puerta Del Mar. The apartment was absolutely beautiful, clean and well maintained. Close to the airport. We went snorkling, skating, did a day trip to the Camuy Caves and even managed a trip to the Zoo. In between we lounged on the beach or by the infinity pool with its spectacular view of Crash Boat Beach. Great Vacation!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently spent a week in Lillian and Peter's condo in Aquadilla. The complex is quiet, clean and relaxing. Upon entering the unit, you feel like you have been there before because the pictures were exactly like the actual place. The condo had all the items we needed including a washer and dryer. The kids loved the infinity pool. It is very close to the airport, shopping, restaurants and most importantly, the beach. Thanks again for the excellent vacation spot. I would highly recommend this unit and would gladly stay there again when I am back in PR.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in the perfect location! We had family in Moca and in Mayaguez that we wanted to go see and the drives to both places were great. Crash boat is maybe a 30 minute walk if it is hot and you are sluggish but in the morning it should take you no time (also the beach chairs came in really handy!). The parking situation couldn't be better. No stairs to climb! I was amazed at how handicap friendly everything was. Aside from location the place itself was amazing. We had six people (3 couple) and everyone everyone slept comfortably. Everyone raved about how this was the best place they had stayed in Aguadilla in a long time. The condo was very clean and had almost everything we thought we might need. We will keep this place on the top of our list when we come back!

Great condo and great visit to Puerto Rico

  • 5 of 5

Two couples shared the condo for a week and it was perfect size. We were giving great directions to get to the condo first of all.(Driving in Puerto Rico is an adventure in itself.) The condo was spacious, clean, and had the feel of a home. We really enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony every morning. The pool was also wonderful. They even had an ice machine at the infinity pool for those times when the ice maker wasn't enough. The location was perfect for us as we were attending a wedding at a near by house. We made several day trips to see the caves, waterfalls and bio illumination bay. Always felt like we were coming home. Beds were comfortable and condo was well furnished. The owners were prompt in responding to questions and concerns. We had a small issue with the washing machine, which was fixed promptly. Would recommend this to anyone wishing to stay in this area.

Amazing!!!!!! Unbelievable Experience !

  • 5 of 5

I was concerned about coming in at 1:00am and having no place to stay. But you made that very easy and I was traveling with my parents. First I received a welcome package with the keys and a personal note making me feel that you were concern about hospitality and service and that is rare these days. But from day One I felt that Lillian wanted me and my family to experience a pleasant stay. The place was amazing, clean updated and well kept. The property is perfectly situated so there are no stairs to climb. As you enter the apartment the deco is modern and a feeling of calmness and space. So much room. Everything perfectly placed in every room. The bedroom , living room, dinning room kitchen, big balcony ! All I can say is that we plan to come back as often as we can. This is without a doubt the best vacation experience I have ever had! And I have travel all over the world! I recommend Lillian's place to any one who expects the best things in life cause I found no short coming! Only elegance and class ! I Thank you again for providing me and my family the best amazing experience one can ever want!

Yours truly

Manny Matos

The accommodations were excellent. The unit is decorated beautifully. Everything necessary in that u

  • 4 of 5

The property was very nice. We hung out at the infinity pool most of the time. The water was cold because our week was a little rainy and windy, no fault of the renters. Definitely needed a car to get around. The beach is not in walking distance, that was the only drawback we found. I would recommend this property to anyone who is interested in a very relaxing doing nothing kind of week. That was the kind of vacation we wanted and it really fit the bill.

Owner's Response: Maryanne thank you for the review. Crash Boat Beach is about a 3 minute ride by car. We did have some renters who made the walk to the Beach, although we always like to drive down the cliff, as the scenery is quite beautiful. There are many things to do in the area, but happy that you got the relaxing vacation you wanted. Lillian Schermerhorn
