Overview

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!

We were hoping for an ocean view apartment with a bigger comfy bed. We were very impressed with the fully equipped kitchen and cleanliness of the apartment. Lillian was very helpful with our schedule. Early check in was so appreciated!!! :)

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We picked this property because of the beautiful view from the infinity pool where we three couples spent a lot of our time watching the gorgeous sunsets. The property is spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. It had everything you needed for a great stay. Crash Boat was great as were several of the other beaches we visited. We're planning on going back!

Great Vacation Rental!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting out the Schermerhorn's beautiful condo for the past 4 years on family vacations. The unit is always clean and they are quick to answer any questions that we have had. The condo is spacious and near crashboat beach. The infinity pool is breathtaking. I will continue to rent and recommend this condo to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in Aguadilla. Thank you Mr & Mrs. Schermerhorn.

Good stay.

  • 4 of 5

This is my fourth time staying at Puerta Del Mar and just love it! It is very relaxing and love how friendly most people are either that live or work there. This property was nice, it has everything you would need on vacation, e.i towels, beach chairs & cooler. I noticed the cleanness was not so great, there was bunnies of dust in the bedroom floors, the bathroom sinks were dirty with what it looked like to be other people's water and toothpaste splashes when brushing teeth, and the AC in the living doesn't work. Also most of the kitchen utensils to cook with were burnt with old oil so we really didn't do much cooking, and by cooking i mean at least breakfast because there is way too much delicious food places around to go eat! The location of the parking spaces was excellent, I was told by Lillian we would find another set of keys for the unit inside but there wasn't, so had to plan out with the in laws since they would leave to do their own activities, I contacted Lillian right away but didn't receive a response.

Unfortunately this time around the infinity pool which is the main reason we love it so much was "under construction" and was out of service the whole time we were there, not that it's the owner's problem but i feel that there should be some communication between the property and owners when stuff like this happens especially if its going to take a week to fix.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I will speak to my housekeeper about the issues you raised, which is the first time that someone has noted. As far as the infinity pool is concerned, they were supposed to have done the repairs in December when we were there last. Had no idea that it would affect your stay in April. Best, Lillian
