Not across the street, Not just a view, Not on a peninsula bay, lake, or river. Not a busy crowed beach.

                    We are 2 families with 4 children ages 6 to 12 that go to different beach front homes every year. We have seen many islands through the years and stayed at other wonderful houses. This one exceeds them all. Spent 9 days here. The island has more activities than any other for all ages. We zip lined, went on a fabulous catermeran tour to Culebra, Deep sea fishing, Jet skiing, Atv Tour, Roasted Pork in Guavate (in the middle of Carite Rain forest) Hiked El Junke Rain Forest and ate at family owed restaurants along the southern coast. Coming back to this home and location was the highlight. House is clean and impeccably taken care of. Large rooms and very comfortable beds. Back yard is like what you see on a post card. There is a Cabana with BBQ and bar that lights up the ocean front at night. Our remaining days when not exploring were spent here. Kids played in the water. very small waves and crystal clear. Got sun, lazed in the hammocks' under the canopy of Palms and snorkeled right in the back yard. This is the first time we are actually thinking of returning to the same location. Everyday was new and exciting. The weather was amazing the sea in the back yard was warm and inviting. The beaches were private an untouched unlike any other we have been too. The management was with such a personal touch. I can not say enough about the attention Irene gave us in helping us to get to our excursions easily. Sherry the owner made the booking process a breeze. Well we loved every bit of our stay. Like so many other all we can say is if you are reading this you should look no further. This little spot can not be beat. Price wise there were 9 of us staying in a 5 star...4 bedroom custom beachfront Caribbean home at rates that enabled us to do all our activities that just accommodations usually cost. You will find yourself home in paradise. There is no doubt why Sherry has the number one rental on the island. For us it is the number 1 rental in the Caribbean. We highly recommend this unique top quality vacation getaway. The Scott and Reynolds Family

                    Owner response: What a great review! Thank you. I just won another award for best oceanfront family home and most booked in all of Puerto Rico. This award was given because my management is the best. They take excellent care of you my guests (as you mentioned several times Rick:). I take care of the booking and they make sure you come to a spotlessly clean home. It's reviews like this and people like you who have taken the time to write them that got my property these awards as well. It helps those out there like you trying to find a quality home for their special vacation time. Many come to my home to get away and relax from the hustle bustle of life. They love it there too. Staying in the yard all week I personally find very tranquil when I am there as well. But I find that action packed guests like you who go out and explore the island have the best time. Thank you so much again! You will always be welcomed back to my sea shore gem on the southern coast of Puerto Rico. Sherry

                    We are a family of 9 adults and 8 children ages 12 thru 19. We gathered together from every part of the United States for the holidays. We really wanted to stay somewhere that gave us time to reconnect. A space we could call our own and not have to share with others. We started with looking for rentals that could fit all of us. A tall order for our wish list. We decided to rent both Casa Caribe Del Mar and Casa Caribe Del Sol. What a great decision we made as these two properties were a perfect fit. The adults stayed in Del Mar and we put all the kids in Del Sol. They loved having there own place and we had the security of having them next door. They played there music, watched what they wanted on TV and swam in the pool while we had the peace and quiet to ourselves in Del Mar when ever we wanted a break from all there excitement and energy. Both of these homes are superbly appointed, colorful, not s speck of dust, the linens were crisp and fresh on every bed. I could tell how well cared for these homes are. MOST important is they both were spacious with enough room for us all. The houses had all the amenities we needed and more than expected. Franchesca brought fresh fish twice enough for us all. NOW location. The beach was ours!!!! What beautiful scenery with Coconut Palms lined up and down as far as you could see. I walked every morning, The locals in this residential community waved as I walked along. It had sea shells and coral. Literally untouched by regular tourist beach standards and star fish coral reefs, and shallow for swimming and that we did all day. The water pristine clear a magnificent view. The only negative is the sea is really for shallow swimming. There are many small coral spots 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. As it is private area 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 were comfortable. We did some tours that were fun but nothing was better than being at the houses enjoying our private paradise. All in all It was an amazing vacation for us with something of interest for everyone and we look forward to returning next year! The Carter Family

I have had a tough week with the current guests. So thank you for reminding me of the wonderful home I have and getting so fortunate to have a family like yours come and stay. You deserve the 5 stars!!!!!! You are all welcome back anytime with of course my return guest discount. Sherry

                    What a awesome and memorable time we had at Casa Caribe Del Mar. First, Sherri (the owner of the property), is a champ. From the day we inquired about the property, Sherri has been extremely helpful, patient and informative. Whether it was about directions, shopping, local or tourist spots, Sherri was clear and spot on. She simply goes about her business in a very warm and professional manner. When we arrived we were greeted by Francesca. She is awesome. She showed us around the property, and let us know all the good stuff. Francesca is the local champ. We were a group of six. Two couples and two single guys. The place is so nice and relaxing on so many levels. The house was spotlessly clean. Everything was in place like a home should be. Anytime it was time to go it was hard to leave. Like a magnet we felt drawn to staying, and when we were gone we felt like we were being pulled back. We chilled on the hammocks, on the backyard floor, in the water, on the back porch, there are so many spots to hang out that are already designed to chill, that make it so amazing. The property does not seem like it was designed for any specific group, as it looks like any group of people can just settle in and will love it just s we did. It is in its own secluded area and right off the water, yet close enough (5 minutues) to hang out with the locals or whoever is in town. I strongly recommend this property, and truly want anyone considering staying here to know, that I am very glad that I have been fortunate enough to stay here. This is on mehalf of all of my friends as well. I know awesome when I see it. Thank you Sherri and Francesca :) Until next time. All the best, Mikey

                    Owner response: Thank you Mikey for taking the time to write such a great review :) I am so glad you enjoyed our home and our beautiful island. I hope to have you all back again. Sherry

                    As I sit here braving the severely negative temps of the coldest Midwest winter in memory, it is hard to believe just a few short weeks ago I was with my family soaking up sun, sand, warm water and making great memories. We found this lovely gem and I can honestly say it was a fantastic experience. From the beginning, Sherry was more than helpful with making the reservation, and giving us tons of helpful advice for our stay at her property. I never had a minutes trouble getting in touch with her through email or by phone. She is professional and has great tips. Her on site manager Irene was extremely helpful, professional and willing to do whatever you need while staying in the house. I was pretty much in charge of planning this trip and these two ladies made the whole process as simple as can be. I thank them both very much for being so wonderful! In total there were 8 of us. My husband and myself, my parents, my brother and sister in law and my two nieces 13 and 11. My husband and I travel extensively all over the world and we loved the idea of relaxing in a beach house for the week and taking a break from the hard core travelling that we are accustomed to. We absolutely loved the house. It was clean and comfortable. Waking up every morning to the ocean right outside the back door was such a wonderful experience. The back yard is absolutely gorgeous and well maintained by an excellent professional gardening staff. There is so much to do in Puerto Rico and we enjoyed it very much. We found the people to be friendly and hospitable, the food to be delicious and the views are breath taking. We loved going on adventures during the day only to get back to our beach house for sunset and drinks and snacks on the beach. We also spent a few days around the house enjoying the yard and beach. It was the perfect place to call home for a week. I recommend Casa Caribe del Mar for anyone who wants to spend a week in paradise making precious memories with friends and/or family. We all had a great time and would definitely return! Don't hesitate on this rental!

                    Owner response: A Christmas gift for Sherry :) Thank you Crystal for such a beautiful review. You know when I open my email and see that I have an Owner review notification, I know that no one needs to take the time to write one so I do consider it a gift of appreciation. I get very excited to read what you my guests have said about your stay. Did you love the house like I do? Did you have a good time? Etc etc. And then reading yours and giving me a 5 star rating just made my day. You made mention to some very important points about how I run my business. It has evolved into a full service rental company from a promised spotlessly clean house to location location location :) and my very special staff along with activities on the island that I feel best suits each individual party that come to my homes for a vacation. Since I have never been able to stay at my own home on Christmas holiday (I will when I retire) but until then I am so happy to have shared it with wonderful people like you at this holiday time of year. I do hope you return I would love to have you and your family back. Sherry

                    We looked at so many beautiful houses on VRBO but if you read all reviews on each site a lot said house was not quite as clean or beach not really as nice as pictures looked etc and no video??? There should be a video on all properties these days. And I wondered why not on all these other properties. Some I did not get responses for days or owner was nice but did not speak very good English which was not easy for me. I wish I could speak Spanish but I am from Idaho. We decided on Casa Caribe Del Mar because of the video it really showed us what we were getting and great reviews. Sherry contacted me the same day I inquired. She spent time with me and was very informative. I knew after speaking with her this house was it. I will tell you we feel like we won the lottery! The house and location has all and more than even the video can express. Charm, character, color..... everything we could ask for and SPOTLESSLY clean. Irene (wonderful sweet girl) met us at arrival and as she walked us through the property it took my breath away with all the beauty inside and out. I want to say that what makes this house special is it is not a mansion with fancy furnishings I would be afraid my children might break. We wanted a home away from home and this house was a real true Caribbean home. Large yet homey. A perfect size for us in perfect condition in my opinion. Everything in every room well maintained and cared for. We felt so comfortable there. The back yard against the beachfront was amazing for our children. They ran outside in the in such excitement to the grass under the Palms and played at the water edge the minute they got there. It was such a joy to see them do that. At night the whole back yard and Cabana light up under those Palms...Incredible. Sherry told us that there was a nest in the yard against the fence that the same sea turtle comes and lays her eggs every year and be careful not to walk on it. It was lined with coral so we knew where not to walk. We were amazed by just this but guess what? My children got to see the baby sea turtles hatch in early evening and walk to the sea on our third day there. AMAZING EXPERIENCE ONCE IN A LIFE TIME TO SEE THIS WONDER OF NATURE UNFOLD BEFORE OUR EYES. All the rest you have probably already read in Sherry's other reviews I will say is right on the money. So many wonderful things to say about this quaint little town, amazing food. Uncrowded and Untouched beaches. Nature at it's best. And a house I

                    Owner response: Thank you so much for this incredible review. I am so happy to hear your children got to see the yearly hatching of our baby seas turtles. They lay their eggs about 3 months in a row every year along our coast and one turtle has chosen the edge of our yard as her nesting site. We are very honored by this!!!! In my almost 9 years of owning there, I have seen many nests but I have not gotten to see this wonder of nature of them hatching yet. But look forward to it in my retirement :) Great video you took of it and am trying to get it on my Facebook page. They are so tiny and love the fact that you would not let the children touch them in the video. A true respect for nature giving them the best chance for survival. This review is different than most. Although I love what guests have to say in all my reviews in fact it is what I hope to achieve in reviews. It was just great to hear of a different kind of excitement from you my guests along with all the consistent compliments we get here at Casa Caribe Properties. Thanks Again Sherry

                    We visited Sherry's home over the Thanksgiving holiday. We were 4 adults and 3 children, and there was more than enough room. The house is exactly as it is represented: well-cared-for, directly on the beach, and relatively secluded. It is obvious the house is more than just a rental property to the owners; it's a place they care for and visit regularly. That shows. The property manager, Irene, was very helpful. She was able to answer all questions immediately, and she made us three restaurant recommendations (one of which was walkable down the beach, west of the house, called Lordemar), all of which were excellent. The booking process was very simple, the directions to the house were easy to follow, and the vacation was wonderful. It was unusually rainy while we were there, and we loved it -- it's amazing to swim in the ocean in a passing rainstorm, and we saw more than a few rainbows over our stay. We also went on a boat/snorkeling trip to Icacos, great fun. We meant to hit another beach a little west of Patillas, but we couldn't pull ourselves away from the house. On days without much wind, the snorkeling was excellent. The beach itself was full of sand crabs and hermit crabs, pelicans and other birds, interesting shells and sea glass. We had a wonderful time.

                    Owner response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. And for mentioning what a great job my staff does. These girls like Irene and Franchesca are hand picked trained with care and have become family to me. Yes I do come as often as I can and it is usually in the rainy season and I love it as well. Although I know most my guests prefer sunshine understandably, but I am glad to hear when my guests enjoy the giant warm rain drops of the tropics as well. Thank you again and we hope to see you next year. Sherry

                    We came to PR with family, to see family. This vacation rental worked out perfectly. We ended up cooking a huge meal for our entire group (some staying elsewhere) and having an amazing time cooking, swimming, playing and partying at this spectacular location. The house and grounds are just perfect. We went to both nearby grocery stores which were both convenient (the one in Arroyo is much larger). Being a bit out of the way (a huge plus for us) meant that restaurant choices were fairly slim. Having Puerto Ricans in the family and getting home cooked PR food often, we found the nearby restaurants adequate, but we also went over to Ponce and had a meal at an "elegant" restaurant that was not much better. I would happily stay here again. Life in the hammocks was wonderful! Thanks Sherry!

                    Owner response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. I also want to thank you for sharing the video of the sea turtles hatching on our beach. I am going to post it on my facebook page. You all were so excited and the babies were so cute. The same sea turtle comes and lays her eggs there every year. We flag the nest and put shells around it to protect it. Your children got the rare wonderful experience of witnessing this wonder of nature. I hope to one day see them hatch as well. I love when guests come and call me like you did just to say how beautiful my home and yard are. You made my day and I hope to see you all back next year. Sherry

                    Just came back from Puerto Rico. We stayed at del Sol and del Mar next door which is great for a large group (8). First Sherry was amazing to deal with. This house was everything she said and more. Irene the property manager is a true gem. Both houses were EXTREMELY clean and well maintained. Patillas is quiet and laid back but the people are extremely friendly. We loved talking to the people and the neighbors to the right brought us fresh mangos and bananas as did Irene. She even drove us to the best bakery in the town of Patillas. We did have a car to drive where we wanted. Activites we tried were the biobay, wave boats with snokerling, horseback riding, deep sea fishing, and the Hilton casino in Ponce. DONT USE Yunke Zipling: rude, rude, rude. Thanks again Sherry for sharing your houses.

                    Casa Caribe Del Mar is just as advertised, but maybe better. Right on the bueatiful Caribbean, your view of the sea framed by palm trees, a clean and wonderful home, with both local and owner support. Five stars is not enough. Our group of 8 enjoyed the island but we all agreed that staying "home" on the beach was the best.

                    Owner response: Wow so many very happy guests. I am so pleased. And even more proud of my staff for doing a 5 star job. The property should be perfect when you arrive and my staff has made sure of this. It has taken me years to find the best to take care of my guests and homes. It feels great to say that today... They are not just employees they are friends. It makes vacations what they should be for you our guests to enjoy and bring home great memories. Thank Liz for taking the time to right this review and I do hope to see you all back next year. Sherry

                    Casa Caribe Del Mar is a beautiful, well maintained property. It is wonderful to sit in the hammocks and watch the world go by while you relax, and if you don't want to do that, there are many activities within an hour of the home. We went up "Pork Road" and sampled the world class roasted pork, hiked in the rain forest, went sailing and snorkeling on a catamaran, toured Old San Juan, and some of the group even kayaked to the biolumenscent bay during the week we were there. It was a little windy while we were there and while we weren't able to do a lot of snorkeling in back of the house, but the moonlight walks on the beach were awesome! We found a little park and beach out of the wind within 10 minutes of the house and were able to do a lot of swimming/snorkeling/shell gathering there. The property manager, Irene, was so great to help us with anything we wanted or needed to know...she even got some fresh red snapper for us!

                    Owner response: Another 5 star review! Thank you so much!

I hope that you will come and stay with us again. Sherry

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We are Dave and Sherry and live in San Diego California and plan on retiring in seven years to spring and summer in San Diego and fall and winter in Puerto Rico with our children and grandchildren. We have rented out our home in Puerto Rico for the past four years and it has been an amazing journey making dream vacations come true and to share our little piece of paradise with wonderful people like you from every corner of the world.

                  Why the Owner Chose Patillas:
                  We travel quite a bit as empty nesters and wanted to find a home somewhere in the tropics. We bought in Puerto Rico, because it is a fresh clean green island and is US territory. Honestly the topography reminds us of a mini Costa Rica. With out the long flight and of course no passport needed for US citizens like us. It was the perfect fit for us as we had stayed on the island several times through the years and knew this is where we wanted to settle down. We are very American, and wanted a diverse culture like Puerto Rico has and still feel we are safe in our surroundings. Best of both worlds. I have felt at home there at every visit and then from the day we bought our property. We now know our nieghbors and local business owners in our little town. We bring them business and in turn they take care of us and our guests. We find our guests have always been made to feel welcome as well. We have had guests come and stay from all over the world!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We spent a month looking at over 40 homes on every side of Puerto Rico for just the right home to buy. When we saw this property we knew this was it. The location was amazing, right out of a story book and the house simply true Authentic Puerto Rican beach home. Spanish architecture, terrazzo floors, All concrete with a spanish verandah wrapped around this house. We just came in a gave it a good cleaning and great ammenities, with new windows, the central air etc. This old house needed TLC. We did just that! The house had great bones and charm. You can renovate a house. But of course NOT the location! The scenic views from the back yard were just breath taking. The location could not be beat. Now we have best of both worlds! A beautiful house full of charm and a location that dreams are made of. We are unigue in that we are truly on a sandy oceanfront property and the beach is lined as far as you can see both ways with Coconut palm trees. Not a tourist area, untouched beaches with sea shells all over the sand and such friendy people. We are glad that we have contributed by bringing business to this little fishing village, resturaunts, and shops. Authentic Puerto Rico at it's finest. We have been all over this tropical green island, and we know there is no place as beautiful as our little secret treasure on 'The Emerald of the South'
