About Dale Martin

I have been traveling to Puerto Rico and renting in the Shacks Beach area for over 20 years. In 2011 I had the opportunity to purchase this property that I had walked by, admired and dreamed of owning for years. I spent the summer of 2011 at the house working, designing and supervising the renovation. My goal was to create a location that both my family and guests would enjoy and would want to keep coming back to. Through my years of renting in the area I compiled a list of amenities I would want included in a rental property which I have incorporated in Villa Sol a Sol for your comfort and vacationing pleasure.

Dale Martin purchased this villa in 2011

Why Dale Martin chose Isabela

This property is ideally located and provides all of the amenities that I would want in a home or a vacation rental. It is colorful, clean and very comfortable. If you're into surfing, SUPing, windsurfing, kite surfing, snorkeling or just hanging by the beach you will not find a better value proposition than Villa Sol a Sol.

What makes this villa unique

From the moment you pull up to Villa Sol a Sol you will be pleasantly pleased with the whole property. You have gated parking, beautifully landscaped grounds, ocean views, covered porches with hammocks and bar top to escape from the sun and enjoy morning coffee or evening cocktails. The floors are all tiled, bedrooms are air conditioned, Wi-Fi available any where on the property, new Serta queen sized beds, nice comfortable living area with satellite TV and newly remodeled kitchen and bath.

Excellent rental

  • 5 of 5
Dale's rental was excellent in every way. Aside from the fact that Shacks is a great place to stay, Dale made sure we were taken care of throughout our vacation. His place is beautiful, comfortable and a few steps from a beautiful beach. No problems of any kind. Highly recommended.

Paradise Perfection

  • 5 of 5
We have been visiting Shacks Beach for a few years now and have rented several houses. But Sol a Sol is by far the cleanest, most well kept and meticulously maintained property we have ever stayed in. It is conveniently located just steps from the beautiful Shacks Beach as well as a short drive to anything you could possibly need.
When we first arrived it was hard not to notice the well groomed grounds and lively landscape. Perfectly placed tropical foliage line the property creating a very relaxing and private setting. Dual hammocks swing in the ocean breeze on the quaint patio where we would come to eat several of our meals during our stay. Outdoor showers, gas grill, surf racks as well as a nice back yard area including a lush herb garden are just a few of the amenities you'll find outdoors.
The features inside of the home continue the comfortable vibe. All recently renovated with modern touches like granite countertops, brand new appliances, new windows and doors as well as cozy furniture ensure you will feel right at home. The home also is equipped with wifi, satellite tv, multiple ceiling fans, a/c unit and full kitchen with all the creature comforts from back home. We felt right at home almost immediately. Clean. Orderly. Comfortable.
I should also mention we were traveling with our nine month old baby. There was no shortage of places and things to keep her safe and occupied which was the most important part of our stay.
The host and owner of Sol a Sol, Dale, is the most gracious and accommodating person and made absolutely sure we were always comfortable and had everything we needed. It is obvious that Dale takes great pride and care of his property and visitors. You'll find him tending to the grounds or doing his daily chores, always pleasant, professional and approachable. He is a very down to earth and genuine character that you will instantly feel comfortable with and enjoy his company. I cannot say enough nice things about him or how he conducts himself. A true pleasure.
Do yourself a favor... stop looking and book this place for your stay. You will not be disappointed. Everything in the description and pictures listed are exactly as they appear or better. No smoke and mirrors here. We completely loved it here and I would recommend it to anyone searching for a place in paradise to park and soak it in. This is the spot.Thanks again Dale for everything, we will see you soon.

Relaxing Getaway! Clean and Accessible

  • 5 of 5
Dale was a great host at the house at Shacks Beach, Puerto Rico. The property was impeccably clean and maintained. Dale frequently checked in with us to ensure that our stay was pleasant and if we needed anything. He offered us access to his snorkel gear and we took advantage of that several time as the beach is only a minute walk down the street. The house was within 10 minutes of the Aguadilla airport, 5 minutes to a grocery store, 2-15 minutes from lots of dining options, 2-2.5 hours to San Juan (depending on traffic), and about an hour from the Caves of Camuy. Thanks for the hospitality, Dale! We will definitely use this lodging option the next time that we are in Puerto Rico. Shacks Beach is very laid back. There are no huge resorts or crowds. It is also great for surfing and kiteboarding.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from a much needed warm-weather getaway to Puerto Rico.

Dale, the gracious owner of the villa, was prompt in all correspondence during the reservation progress, in addition to being very accommodating when we made changes to our reservation last-minute and also with our early check-in.

As far as location goes, the apartment is perfectly situated close to a number of surf breaks, restaurants, and provision stores. Shacks Beach, which is a beautiful stretch of beach and home to Blue Hole (if diving is your thing), is literally steps away.

The apartment itself is sparkling clean.
Clean sheets and a comfortable bed are all my husband and I really require and the apartment certainly delivered in that regard. It's also equipped with a number of other amenities , including a full kitchen, which was great to have especially after visiting the local farmers market. We had to do some work on our trip, so the internet access was also helpful.

It is evident that Dale spends a lot of time and effort maintaining his property, and we saw him on several days tending to the garden, sweeping up this-or-that, and generally ensuring that everything is spotless.

Dale had all sorts of recommendations for things to see and do : he was a great resource throughout our trip! We were more than happy with our decision to say at Villa Sol a Sol and plan to go back.
We wish we could have stayed longer!

Clean, Quaint & Convenient

Villa Sol a Sol easily accommodated our group of 4 adults and one child for our recent stay. With Shacks beach located steps from the end of the driveway this location is a surfers delight with plenty of other surf locations a short drive by car away. The photos on the website are up to date and accurate. This charming home greeted our group with a comfortable beds on a quaint street in a quiet residential area. A short distance away, we visited The Breakfast Club for an amazing, healthy start to our day. At the same location Ola Lola’s was a tropical location for some refreshing evening cocktails & for those brave enough to try a peanut butter hamburger. Our spectacular Thanksgiving feast was at the neighboring resort, Villa Montana, where the chef created a 5 course meal that was one of the best we have ever consumed—and my 7 year old son LOVED the wood fire oven pizza as we watched the picturesque sunset slip below the horizon. For the occasions we opted to dine in, the kitchen had the basics and the grocery store very close. We happily had plenty of space to sprawl out between the eat-in kitchen table as well as the gorgeous lanai bar area, making our eat-in meals delightful as well. The landscaping of the property was meticulously maintained and we were lucky enough to spot an iguana or two atop of the fenced in yard and woke to the song of singing birds at daybreak. When we returned to the home at the end of the day, the driveway was well-lit and the board racks safely housed the boards that we brought. The gated driveway provided plenty of privacy and we felt like we were visiting a private, tropical oasis. Dale, the owner of this home, was readily available to answer all of our questions & happily assisted us by phone/email when we contacted him. This vacation rental is one that our family would highly recommend to anyone interested in visiting the region and we are looking forward to our next future visit to Isabella and planning another stay at Villa Sol a Sol.

Just as described

This place was perfect for my girlfriend and I. Apartment was clean and very well maintained. The bed was very comfortable, which isn't always the case in most rentals. The grounds were beautiful. Just down the road in a wooded area and canal is a nature paradise. We would go there to listen and watch the birds and try and spot some of the iguana that live there. Truly beautiful seeing these animals in the wild. Dale could not be more accommodating. We had a special request and Dale was able to come through for us. We will be sure to be staying here again

Villa Sol a Sol is one lot back from the ocean and offers ocean views from both the ground and second level of the property. The beach is about 30 steps from the front gate. The whole property including kitchens were just remodeled. For the upcoming 2013/14 fall/winter season we are currently taking reservations for the 2 bedroom downstairs apartment. It has recently been remodeled and is very comfortable.It has a newly remodeled kitchen with custom cabinets and granite counter tops. It has its own living area with outside covered porch with sitting and lounging area and african mahogany bar top. The grounds are surrounded with colorful tropical fauna and flora.

The best part of Shacks Beach is the diversity of activity within a short walking distance from Villa Sol a Sol. Shacks has open and uncrowded beaches with some of the best snorkeling in Puerto Rico. Tropical Trail Rides offers horseback riding tours to isolated beaches 2 times per day. The Shacks area has quality surf breaks for surfing or paddle boarding and wave sailing for kite surfing or wind surfing. Just a short walk down the beach, Villa Montana resort offers exceptional tropical dining. Ola Lola's Garden Bar is a short walk and offers casual dining, cocktails and occasional live entertainment with a local flare.
