A one of a kind place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Puerto del Sol! It was everything we had envisioned and more. With the pool in the front and the river in the back, my family could swim, fish and crab at will. The cottage was well equipped and perfect with its lovely decor and living spaces for everyone. The screened porch provided a special place to gather for breakfast as well as keeping fishing rods close at hand. Having the easily accessible pier made fishing, kite flying, bird watching, crabbing and sunset viewing delightful. We especially enjoyed watching the eagles, osprey, geese, pelicans, seagulls and herons. On cloudy days, we had fun playing games and puzzles or heading into downtown Mathews. Don't miss the farmers markets on Saturday mornings in the summer. We look forward to returning to this one of a kind place!

We have stayed at Puerto Del Sol many times, and we absolutely love it. Most of our time is spent relaxing on the dock and at the pool. The house is clean and welcoming. The kitchen is very well-stocked with cookware. We rarely venture out with the exception of the grocery store, but the town of Mathews is so charming and this year we spent a day shopping and visiting antique stores. We ate lunch at Richardson's and thoroughly enjoyed our day. Patti is terrific and the only thing we would change is being able to stay longer.

Enjoyed peaceful stay

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful clean house. Quiet location. Fully stocked kitchen. Just didn’t feel like it was my vacation rental with owners family pictures around. Wish there were less Knick knacks leaving room for groceries/personal items in kitchen/dining and den.

Great dock and pretty sunsets.

Great relaxing vacation !!

  • 5 of 5

I will agree with what all the other reviews have said. For starters the house is beautifully furnished, and is super clean ! The area is secluded and very quiet. In the front of the house is the in ground pool, which we spent a lot of time in. Behind the house is a great view of the bay, complete with a great dock to fish, crab or just sit and enjoy. My family really enjoyed the week we spent here. We did a lot of day trips from here all within an hour drive or so. Busch Gardens, Jamestown, Neweport News.

We also booked a fishing charter in nearby Hudgins with Fintango Charters, Highly recommend if your looking to going charter fishing.

All in all a great vacation, and I would highly recommend this house for anyone visiting this area.
