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 we have acquired the property we have initiated a new project to enhance the property to provide the best accommodation possible for our guests.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
We arrived at night and couldn't really see the ocean, but could hear it, clearly. Had no trouble sleeping because the sound of the ocean would rock you to sleep. Then in the morning could clearly see the break. Amazing view and location.
Owner keeps the property clean and is very cool and helpful about little things that you don't think about when going on vacation. House is stocked with all the things you need to cook, clean, eat, sleep, and enjoy the water.
All in all, couldn't have imagined a better vacation. Top Notch. Highly recommended.
Dale's home is absolutely stunning. It is clean, comfortable, private and completely beautiful. We used the 1st floor condo, and it was perfect. All the modern amenities you could want. Excellent shower, water pressure, hot water, filtered drinking water, etc. and steps to the beach, with ocean views. Dale is a gracious and very helpful host as well - can answer all your questions, and is just a great kind person. Hope to stay again soon!!!
5 stars across the board. We rented the 2nd floor apartment. Everything was as described; clean, modern, comfortable and ideally situated. My family lived in PR for several years and had spent a good deal of time around Shacks Beach. We were 5 large adults (parents and 3 college age kids). We were snug in the 3 bedroom but comfortable.
Dale's place is in the perfect spot..steps from the beach located at the end of a dead-end road. The beach has a great swim spot, excellent snorkeling, has miles of uncrowded sandy beach that is walkable and breath taking.
The entire place is spotless. Dale lives upstairs but was very respectful of our privacy..we had a kitchen electrical outlet "go-out" during our stay..Dale was there in 10 minutes with a bag of tools and fixed the problem. The unit has beach chairs and snorkel gear; there is a modern gas grill, outdoor showers (and indoor/don't worry) to do a quick salt/sand wash-off, clothes lines for towels and suits, good cable tv and internet etc. My advice for anyone worried about "taking a chance" on an internet rental in PR is "RENT THIS PLACE."
The Shacks Beach area is a treasure for anyone who is looking for a genuine PR beach experience away from San Juan (1.5 hours), but who also wants a modern and comfortable place to relax and kick back (Dale's rental units).
My one recommendation is that you really need to have a car to truly enjoy this area. There are some great restaurants and things to do beyond the beach that are within 5-20 mins drive. Shacks Beach is located in a really great part of PR where you are going to want to get out and explore a bit. Tom Lennon
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.

Both the 1st and 2nd floors have been completely remodeled and are modern, clean and comfortable. Both units have newly remodeled kitchens with custom cabinets and granite counter tops. Each unit has its own living area with outside covered porch with sitting and lounging area and african mahogany bar tops. The property is perfectly situated to accommodate 2 families, friends or wedding parties traveling together for 5 bedroom accommodation.. The property has a whole house generator to ensure your comfort 24/7. The grounds are surrounded with colorful tropical fauna and flora inside a private walled compound.

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.
