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. Every summer since I acquired the property I have initiated a new project to enhance the property to provide the best accommodation possible for our guests.

Dale Martin purchased this villa in 2011

Why Dale Martin chose Bajura

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. It has all of the amenities required to ensure your vacation will be a positive and memorable experience. 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. We strive to be the best rental at the beach.

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 cable TV, WiFi and newly remodeled kitchen and bath. We have multiple outsides showers to rinse off the salt and sand from the beach and a retractible clothes line to dry swimsuits and towels after a fun day at the beach.

Amazing home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Spent several days in this home with my family. The home was beautiful and perfectly located steps away from the beach. We fell asleep to the sounds of the ocean. It was perfect. Dale was a great host and we would absolutely stay here again if given the opportunity.

Beautiful and comfortable lodging steps away from the beach

  • 4 of 5

The rental exceeded my expectations. The first floor is perfect for 5 guests. It's comfortable and very clean. You have everything you need to spend quality time with friends and family. Shacks beach is only steps away from the property. The water is crystal clear; it's great for snorkeling, kiting or surfing. There are nice restaurants near by as well as grocery stores. Great place to relax!

Away,but near it all

  • 5 of 5

Last Feb.was our second stay at Casa del Sol. We have spent time in P.R the past six winters. Here we found the sweet spot. There at a beautiful beach with great water, with energy,power, and tranquillity . A feeling of home away from home in great accomodations , with attention to detail and friendship. You can be far away, but close to all you might need and want to explore.So recommended.

Cataño, PR

Un lugar ideal para vacacionar con amigos y en familia.

  • 5 of 5

Nuestra experiencia en Villa Sol a Sol ha sido divina. Hemos alquilado el apartamento de 2 habitaciones en el primer piso y aunque no teníamos la vista al mar como el apartamento del piso superior, pudimos disfrutar del jardín muy verde y fresco y de la terraza. La cocina es bien equipada con lo necesario para cocinar cualquier cosa, los enseres son nuevos, los muebles cómodos y limpios. El baño es limpio y bien mantenido. Los cuartos son suficientemente grandes, tienen closet, camas queen con ropa de cama de buena calidad. La propiedad entera es muy bien mantenida y limpia. Está literalmente a 10 pasos de la playa y se escuchan las olas a todas horas. Dale, el dueño de Villa Sol a Sol, siempre está disponible y es muy amable. Disfrutamos de una semana de playa relax, con todos los conforts y las amenidades necesarias: BBQ, flat screen con cable TV, WiFi en toda la propiedad, muebles en las terraza y en el jardín, hamacas, duchas externas para quitarse la arena al regresar de la playa. Hay sillitas de playa disponibles y juegos de mesa para entretenerse.

Nuestra familia ha disfrutado mucho de esta mini-vacación y recomendamos Villa Sol a Sol con mucha seguridad y entusiasmo.

Fantastic Shacks beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodations (clean, well kept, provided everything needed to enjoy the house & the beaches/ocean); exceeded expectations (owner is helpful/knowledgeable re local resources i.e. groceries, restaurants, beaches, surfing); enjoyed snorkeling, wave jumping, surfing & swimming on uncrowded beaches; grandkids had a grand time as did parents and grandparents! We've already recommended it to friends back home. No negatives!
