Great and easy place! Totally enjoyed our stay.

I decided to write this review to help others as I have never booked accommodation using this method and wanted to try the experience. I usually book into hotels or stay with family.
I had looked at different properties in the location I needed to stay. Casa Del Sol appealed to me as the price was very reasonable for the 3 week period and area I wanted. I contacted the owner via this site, a month before I was due to travel. I called the number and spoke to Alyson Warren. Alyson was great. We agreed the rate and price and she answered any questions I had about the area. This reassured me as I did have concerns about using the site initially. Alyson then copied me into the email she sent to the booking agent so that we could arrange payment as agreed.
The ladies at the booking agent were great and helpful too and contacted me within 24 hours. Any questions I had they tried to answer but advised the best person to speak to would be the site manager, Nick on arrival.
Casa Del Sol is lovely. My partner and I stayed in Apt 5. We had transport, it was easy to find once you have a GPS/SatNav or are with someone who knows their way around. Everything was perfect, ready and waiting for arrival.
The unit was exactly as the photos show. There are 7 units in total, all one bedroom. The details given about the properties are a true account. I also paid extra for international calls and cleaning once a week as the prices were reasonable. They can accommodate 2 extra people on sofa bed.
If I had to be 'super critical', the only 2 things would be that they should boost/upgrade their internet/WiFi services to be able to take the volume of usage, when all units are occupied at the same time. Also, the Apt./resort, would benefit from 2-3 cosmetic/paint touch ups. Just so that evidence of previous water leaks/repairs, now resolved, do not give the wrong impression.
Nick is down to earth, polite and helpful. He is contactable by mobile and is usually on site for a time each day. We had disrupted access to the WiFi connection. Told Nick, who did try and eventually manage to get this sorted out. Other minor issues, were sorted immediately.
The area is beautiful! It is easier with a car but if you like to walk, the Galleria Mall and Publix is literally a 10 minute walk away and the beach is close by too. There are always taxis around near the Mall or call one.
We would return again, no doubt. We loved the relaxed nature and freedom to do as you want.
