Sherry Norling purchased this house in 2014
Our love of travel began many years ago with our brief careers in the Airline Industry. During that time we had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the Caribbean islands. Ultimately we fell in love with Puerto Rico and after a trip touring around the island a couple of years ago we were drawn to the lush green southeast part of the island known as the Emerald of the South. We then fell in love with the small fishing village of Patillas as it brought us back to that old time Caribbean feel that enchanted us many years ago. After returning home to Kansas we couldn't stop dreaming of the beautiful town of Patillas and our dream of possibly owning a home there someday. Our original thought was to purchase a home for us exclusively but then we became aware of Casa Caribe Properties LLC. The owner of this Company (Sherry Norling) led us to Casa Caribe Del Sol and our dream became a reality in November of 2014. Instead of keeping this beautiful property all to ourselves, we are sharing it with guests from around the world so they can experience this magical place as well! This house has everything we wanted on our wish list….beachfront, in ground pool, and outdoor living areas that are spacious and inviting. After we purchased the home in November, we gave it a complete makeover with all new furniture, bedding, paint, and kitchen wares. Our renovation was challenging but we persevered it's original integrity while implementing all the latest technology and modern amenities with the help of Sherry’s staff. The end result is we completed what we believe is the perfect family beachfront oasis.
Patillas is a tropical paradise that is the secret of southern Puerto Rico. It is not touristy and is a true Puerto Rican fishing village. This gated property is perfect for those adventurous families/couples who want to get off the beaten path, enjoy a taste of the local culture, AND have all the comforts of a home with a private pool directly on a beautiful Caribbean beach. This Spanish beach front home has a private pool that overlooks the Caribbean Sea. Swim in the pool and watch the waves. Take a swim in the ocean and then a swim in your own private pool. Home offers both a veranda off the house and a cabana with bar and dining area next to the pool. Outdoor bathroom and shower.
We are the Carter family! 9 adults and 8 children ages 12 thru 19. We got together from every part of the United States for a holiday reunion. We really wanted to stay somewhere that gave us time to all reconnect as we had not been together in years. We wanted a space we could call our own and not have to share space as we would have at any resort. We started with looking for home rentals that could fit all of us. There was really nothing available without spending far beyond our budget. We decided to rent both Casa Caribe Del Mar and Casa Caribe Del Sol as this was far more affordable. Well we thought we were settling and not what we really wanted to do. What a wonderful surprise that we made the best decision as these two properties were a perfect fit. The adults stayed in Del Mar and we put all the teenagers in Del Sol. They loved feeling a bit independent with there own place and we had the security of having them next door. They were able to play there music, watched what they wanted on TV and swam in the pool. We had peace and quiet in Del Mar and enjoyed all there excitement and energy when we spent time together. Both of these homes are superbly appointed, colorful, not a speck of dust, the linens were crisp and fresh on every bed in both houses. Extremely well cared for. The houses had all the amenities we needed and more than expected. Franchesca brought fresh fish twice during the week right to our doorl. NOW for the location. The beach was basicly ours!!!! The scenery was amazing with Coconut Palms lined up and down as far as you could see. I walked on the beach every morning, The locals in this residential community waved to me as I walked along. I felt very welcomed with warm smiles along my way. The sea shore had shells and pieces of coral. Literally untouched as a tourist beach usually is. The water is shallow for swimming and that we did all day. The water pristine clear with a magnificent view from both houses. The only negative is the sea is really for shallow swimming. There are many large patches of coral in these shallow waters to see the sea life but I think the big reef is to far out to explore and also a bit rough where the waves break. This is not a crowed beach saw 5 other people all week and there is no lifeguard. Sherry takes her time in the rental process and made it a breeze. She is very professional and her staff takes a personal interest in making sure we had everything needed. Great Houses, location, Staff, and Owner!
We had a wonderful time at Casa Caribe del Sol. Our family of 6 enjoyed the beautiful ocean view, the pool, and most of all the great, comfortable porch to sit and enjoy our days with each other. Everything was very well kept and I would recommend for anyone that wants to spend some relaxing time in the small fishing village of Patillas.
This review is a long time coming, but ice storms here in Tennessee have me longing for Casa Caribe del Sol! My partner and I stayed at Casa Caribe Del Sol December 27, 2014-January 3, 2015 and had one of the best holidays ever!
The house is a on the south part of the island, so if you fly into San Juan, plan on about an hour and fifteen minutes to get there. But the drive is easy and Sherri’s directions are really good. When we arrived, Irene was there to let us in and show us around. She offered lots of options for restaurants and excursions, but once we settled into the house, we never wanted to leave – and we didn’t!
One of the reasons we decided to book the Del Sol is the beachfront location and private pool. We were not the least bit disappointed in our decision! We typically rent beach houses for our vacations and place the Caribe Del Sol among our best beach house experiences. For the price, we couldn’t believe what we got. The pool is larger than the pictures convey. The poolside cabana was a great place to sit and read when we’d had enough sun but didn’t want to go inside. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and having the ocean literally in our backyard was amazing.
The home is comfortable and very private. We had everything we needed for a great stay. The pots and pans were high quality and new and the knives very sharp (something’s that’s rare in rental homes). We had plenty of towels and sheets and blankets. There is no central A/C, but each of the three bedrooms does have its own unit and they work really well, so indoor comfort is not an issue. The house is also equipped with cable TV and apple TV. This was a very nice amenity since it allowed us to relax watching movies each night.
One of the best features of the Casa Caribe Del Sol is its perfect vantage point for watching the sunrise. I suppose it’s fitting that I house whose name (I believe) translates to “House of the Caribbean Sun” would provide for perfect sunrise viewing. We loved drinking our coffee each morning on the beach steps and enjoyed some of the most amazing sunrises ever – That’s not an exaggeration. The sunrises from Casa Caribe Del Sol were spectacular!
I could go on and on about how much we enjoyed our stay at Casa Caribe Del Sol, but it’s best if you experience it for yourself. My partner and I loved our stay so much, we've already booked our return for December 2015!!!
Home is beautiful and we really enjoyed our week away. We were 2 couples and a father and son for the week. The area is quite quiet but it is very relaxing. Home is very clean and property managers were very helpful.
We had a bit of a health scare with my wife. I called Irene who told us where to go and proceeded to meet us at the hospital. I had my credit card out expecting the worse being from Canada. Irene proceeded to help translate for us at admitting and stayed with us until her assistant Brenda came. This was definitely over and above as far as service goes.
We got out of the hospital quickly and without a big bill as our benefit plan covered the visit.
The only tricky part of the home is the entrance. We managed to have someone watch over the busy road as we backed in to the driveway each time.
Would definitely go back again.
We stayed at Casa Del Sol last November and today's snow has prompted my review! It's places like Casa Del Sol that make the frigid weather somewhat tolerable especially when I can remember the perfection of this gem right on the sea! Sherry is very informative about her homes that she manages and her staff does everything you can imagine to make a perfect stay. Our dream vacation is the ocean, a pool, a bbq, and cocktails. Casa Del Sol provides all these things except the steaks and the cocktails! Just make sure you stop along the way to the house for provisions because once you step onto the property you won't want to leave. The house is very well appointed and so clean! There is a bakery and a restaurant within walking distance if you feel the need to eat out. We loved this house and will definitely book here again...hopefully soon!! Thanks Sherry and staff for a memorable November trip!!
This was our first experience renting a home through VRBO and we loved every minute of our stay at Caribe Del Sol. The house was even nicer than it appears in the photos. Irene met us at the house upon our arrival and showed us everything we needed to know. She was so helpful and responsive whenever we had a question and she had lots of suggestions about what to do and where to eat etc. The outdoor space at this home is really what makes it so great. My kids loved the pool, which is a great size and cleaned every week. We also spent a lot of time at the beach and in the water which was amazingly warm! It was a bit rocky (bring water shoes) and you have to be careful of currents but if you are careful and safe the swimming is wonderful. It was great to walk down the beach in both directions away from the house and there were lots of little spots to swim while walking too. We ate several times at the Lordemar restaurant which is just a short walk down the beach from the house, and owned by the nicest, friendliest people. There was easily accessible grocery shopping a very short ride from the house as well as pharmacies and restaurants. The house had everything we needed in terms of pots pans etc for cooking and everything was in great shape. There are several choices for outdoor eating at the house which we loved. Irene brought us fresh fish several times as well as amazing lobster! Beds were comfortable and clean and laundry is on site and convenient. Sherry was great- very informative, accessible and helpful when we were looking at the property and she provided lots of helpful information to make our stay easy and fun. I don't have anything negative to say about this property except that we had to leave it! We are already looking forward to visiting the same house next winter. Thank you Sherry and Irene!!
House is on the beach on Beach Road at the end of town in a residential area, nearest marker road is 7758. The house sits directly on the beach. This is the closest we could get this map to show.
