Family Reunion of 17 in a Perfect Vacation Spot
Family Reunion of 17 in a Perfect Vacation Spot
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!

Fun For All
Fun For All
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.

Manager response: Thank you so much for the wonderful 5 star review. I think this is the fastest any review has come in :) But even more rewarding is comments like this. I love the fact that you enjoyed and explored all Puerto Rico has to offer and found coming home to our paradise on the sea at the end of your day the highlight. Just what I want to hear. I put a new system in place last year. Irene has been my Property Manager for years. She is wonderful and takes care of you my guests and anything you may need. But I now have a new position for Franchesca who has also worked for me for years. She is now my quality control manager. Her job is to oversee and check the housekeepers jobs on all properties at the finish of cleaning. She also checks for any repairs that may be needed. They have a check list that must be signed off by both. It seems to be working as my number one compliment is how clean and well kept up my houses are. This is very important as you my guest come to our island to enjoy a vacation and the last thing on your mind should be about the house. It should and will look just as it does on my videos. The island and it's beauty does the rest for us. A 5 star vacation for you and a 5 star review for me and my staff. We all thank you and hope to see you come back. Sherry
I just re-booked for the next trip!

My family loves Puerto Rico and we always have a lot of fun but having a well-maintained, clean, beautiful place to stay enhances the visit. Casa Caribe del Sol is a comfortable, relaxing home-base for us and we enjoyed our second stay as much as the first. This is a great property for travelers who want to be a little off the beaten path but not isolated from attractions, restaurants, stores, etc. My advice: if you are looking for a vacation rental, book with confidence at any of the "Casa Caribe" properties. Sherry and Irene are the best!

Sherry was very prompt and patient in answering questions before renting. We have three young kids who were quite comfortable and safe in the house and on the property. The house door locks with a key, limiting childrens' access to the pool, and the yard and parking area is secured by a high fence. We enjoyed eating outside every evening on the patio. Irene was kind and timely, coming once during our ten day stay to tidy up the land. The pool was a bit deep for our little ones but clean and not too full of chemicals. The only complaint I have is the level of road noise coming from the busy road in front of the house. On the weekend, there are many passing cars with loud radios, trucks, and loud pipe motorcycles during the day and night. This was striking because we are accustomed to sleeping in our quiet home in the forest! I imagine people living in the city are used to it. The beach was wonderful for walking and snorkeling. We found many kinds of fish in the shallow waters right outside the house. There are 2 restaurants within walking distance on the beach, both with yummy food. Thank you for a wonderful, easy stay in a lovely place.

We really enjoyed our stay here, it was a family reunion in Puerto Rico with the extended family. The house was the perfect amount of rustic with the luxury of a pool and a great view. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. The kids enjoyed the cable and wi-fi that were available. My family absolutely loved it so much so that we almost thought of buying. Sherry was very attentive and ensured that our needs were met. Initially I thought we had the house with the washer and dryer but that was the one next door. My only issue is that I still haven't received our deposit for the house but we would definitely rent again. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.

Manager response: Thanks Alexus for the wonderful review. This party changed their email account and the deposit was delayed. They informed me of this and the problem was solved. The deposit is now on the way. I try very hard to ensure that all deposits are returned in a timely manner. That is why this is never brought up in other reviews. Other than the delay in the deposit I know theu had a great time as I was there at the same time this party was. It does my heart good to see a family play and enjoy our back yard on the sea shore as they did. Thank you again for taking the time to write a review. It lets other know I do offer what I advertise and more. Sherry
Unique Oceanfron Island Gem Far Away from the Tourists
Unique Oceanfron Island Gem Far Away from the Tourists
The many five star reviews are well deserved. If you want to vacation away from corporate America and live within the real local economy, where food and goods are often sold by the side of the road or from modest small shops/restaurants, this is the place for you. Rather then repeat what everyone else has said, I'll try to add some new insights. 1. The house is much nicer than the pictures lead you to believe. There is an unexpected attention to detail that makes this house feel more like a home than a rental. The house was spotless upon arrival, without a so much as a crumb out of place and I didn't see a single bug all week. Not only are the house and grounds immaculate, even the beach is raked and kept pristine. 2. The landscaping is very well done, attractive and functional. While the neighboring houses on each side are very close, the landscaping provides total privacy. The world shrinks to you, your family, the pool, and a million dollar ocean view. 3. Many reviews mention the road which gave me some concern before I went. Having been there, here's my take: the road (route 3) is the primary east/west route and heavily traveled by trucks and cars. The house sits 12 feet from the road (very common in the area for houses to be built so close to the road). You will hear traffic in the house and while sitting by the pool. But it quickly becomes background noise to the point where I stopped noticing it. Like another reviewer, I would suggest ear plugs for sleeping. 4. Entering the road from the driveway doesn't have to be the problem some made it out to be. The driveway is a blind entry due to the way things are laid out. But this is easily overcome by having your passenger get out and simply signal you when no traffic is coming. You might have to be a bit patient for traffic to clear, but if you wait there will be a large break and then you can exit the driveway stress free. There is a small road to pull into right across from the driveway where you can stop out of the main road and let your passenger get in. Returning home is just the reverse scenario. 5. Sherry's directions to the house are in paragraph narrative form. I created website with step-by-step directions and included mileage between each step. I also embedded a map for the major turns. I can't post the link here (VRBO rules), but Sherry has it. Note that Google navigation does not cover Puerto Rico so you can not use a smart phone for gps navigation.

Manager response: Thanks Tom for the wonderful review and great new directions to the house. I now send it to all my new guests. It was so great of you to do this and letting others know that I offer more than what is described on the wen sites. I provide personal attention to house details. This ensures that you my guests enjoy what you came for. A private get away in an authentic setting on the Caribbean Sea. the house should be pristine and not a worry. This is my goal. Thank you for letting others know this is what you get when visiting my homes on the Emerald of the south. Sherry
My family and I just came back from Casa Caribe Del Sol. To start with the house is a little slice of paradise, private, quiet, beautiful. The pool was a great feature to have we used it every day. The grounds are clean very well kept. We loved the fact that it was off the beaten path, yet we traveled all most everyday to a new location and it was great to see the whole island. The property management team is great. They are there in a second for anything you need. We snorkeled, swam, just sat around watching the beautiful view. Two houses down is a great restaurant with very friendly owners. I feel its the ideal location away from the city, but easy to go north, west, or east. The beach is so beautiful, and quiet walk it, swim, just lay in the sun. Any family or couple would love some time at Casa Caribe Del Sol.

I would like to start off by saying,Patillas is where I grow up. It as been 18yrs since my last visit. Experiencing my visit at this amazing house made my trip priceless. The memories that i take back with me will never be forgotten. My highlight of the house were the Pool and the ocean and palm trees. Sherry was very efficent in making sure her guests were happy. All i have to say is if theres any problem she is sure to fix it right away. The house was spectacular and I would recommend and go back again. Thank you sherry stay blessed.

Manager response: Thanks Maddie :) I ask all my guests when returning deposits, if they would please write a review. I have not had a complaint in a couple of years and I always hear what a wonderful time you all have during your stay. They all have good intentions. But life I am sure goes back to hectic busy for most of them once their vacation is done and few find the time. You are one of the special people who took the time to do this and I thank you very much. It helps those ( just like you) who are looking for a vacation home they can trust is what it is advertized to be. I surely hope you come back to our sea shore treasure. I was there during your visit and It was nice to see a family having so much fun and enjoying our beautiful little Patillas. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family. Take care :) Sherry

We had a great time at Casa Caribe del Sol. We rented the home for 10 days and made good use of the pool. What you see if what you get. Pictures are very accurate. Sherri is a pleasure to work with, as well as Irene the Property Manager. As a matter of fact, Irene knows my father. Small world. I rated the property four stars only because the entrance is on a bend in the road and was sometimes a little scary to back up into the driveway. I would certainly rent this home again for my next adventure in PR. Sherri, You have a lovely home. Thank you for sharing it with us, including Jorge my sister's silky terrier.

Manager response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I am so glad you enjoyed your time at our treasure on the seashore. There is a small curve in the two lane road. Not much I can do about that. I'm just glad our house is at the end of town in a residential area and not a busy highway. Would love to have you come back along with your little silky terrier. Thank you for taking such good care of our home during your stay. Sherry
