The pool is 15 x 45 feet in size and has a swim up bar and an in pool picnic table (with umbrella). In the evening, the in-pool lighting and garden like surroundings add to the feeling of being in one's own private resort and spa.

I have owned and self managed rental properties all over the world for the past 20 years, my most recent being in Canada's Gulf Islands, and in the historic city of Salvador Brasil, including a luxury home in Palm Springs, California and I have had many satisfied renters, who have come back year after year

DARRYL GRACE purchased this villa in 2007

Home away from home - but so much better

  • 5 of 5

Right from the very start of our multiple family vacation we could tell that this was going to be a fantastic time... The Casa was beautiful and well maintained, and the staff was there to help us with anything we needed... We asked for a chef for the week, and couldn't have been happier - they were able to help us with our dietary restrictions and made sure we always had exactly what we needed.

The way the Casa is laid out it is ideal for different kinds of groups, whether couples or families want to take advantage of the great outdoor living, and especially the wonderful pool.

Not enough can be said about our enjoyment here, and all of us found our time here to be much too short. I am sure at some point in the future we will find ourselves back here again - it really is that good.

We managed to make it down to the beach club one day and found it really well maintained and quiet (read - not over run with all the people normally at the beach at one of those resort type places). Be prepared for some steep hills if you plan to make the walk down to the beach club, but if you have no mobility issues, it is worth the trip down to it.

If you are like us and hadn't tried the VRBO thing before and had always stayed in the resorts, do yourself a favor and try it - we did, and it is going to be difficult if we ever have to go back to one (resort) after being spoiled by the ultimate way to vacation !!

Casa Del Sol....... The Place to GO

  • 5 of 5

The villa is just the wonderful. we have traveled quite a lot and this is the very best..so relaxing and beautiful.The amenities are outstanding....We have so much fun ,and if you want to go to one of the best beaches, its a very short walk.... In the evening, and on the deck you can get the beautiful sunsets from Casa Del Sol.. The staff are so friendly and helpful, and they keep the Villa very clean. Wendy and Bob

Casa Del Sol

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this Villa for the past 7 years and will continue to do so in the upcoming years. It has all the features and amenities one could ask for in enjoying Mexico. The rooms are big, very clean, comfortable with AC, fans, large bathrooms and showers. The large kitchen, dining areas, front room, open decks, swim pool, tanning areas, and lounge areas make for very comfortable living. The more than friendly support staff are excellent offering services beyond their regular duties i.e. local information, markets, providing meals, local contacts etc.etc. We certainly would not hesitate to recommend this Villa. The location is very good also to many amenities within the City.

Owner's Response: Thank you Leo for your gracious review of Casa Del Sol. Ryan shared with me your enjoyment of the property, and that you continue to return year after year. Reviews such as yours will allow potential renters to fully appreciate just how incredible this villa is and will certainly increase our bookings each year. Thanks to word of mouth spanning 8 years and reviews like yours we are virtually sold out this winter now. I understand you have already confirmed your 8th return visit for the Christmas/New Year period, so it will be my pleasure to welcome you back. Thank you again for your positive comments. Darryl

Manzanillo Vacation for three active retired couples

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! The house is really well layed out; five bedrooms, two of which are suites and six bathrooms! We could easily have had two more couples and been very comfortable. The large kitchen offers everything a cook could possibly want and the counter space to pull it togther! We loved cooking in this wonderful space. The large dinning room table was terrific for our dinners and game nights.

We walked all over La Puenta and enjoyed the sights and the tennis courts. A visit to see the monkeys to feed them peanuts is great fun. Our afternoons were spent swimming in the beautiful pool, sunbathing and reading. The walk to the private beach (very well kept) was one of our highlights!

The view at night of the sunset is fantastic! Great for picture taking. The large comforable deck upstairs was perfect for our cocktails and appetizers!

Juan and Margarita keep this property very clean and Juan speaks English quite well. They are lovely people and do everything they can to make to stay wonderful.

We loved it and hope to make another visit back to this beautiful gem!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words and for such a fantastic review of the villa, Victoria. Ryan shared with me your positive feedback and how much you all enjoyed your stay. It is always so rewarding to get such positive feedback from guests who have actually stayed in the villa and taken advantage of all the activities that La Punta has to offer. It would be my pleasure to welcome your group back again when next considering a vacation to Manzanillo. Again thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts about your experience during your visit. All the best. Darryl

Early Christmas more than perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 13, ranging in ages from 1 ½ years to 76 had the most amazing time. We were not all able to get together over the Christmas season so we booked this trip and had early Christmas in Casa Del Sol. The property was perfect. Everyone had their own space and tons of public space for us to be together. From the moment we arrived and were met by Juan the property caretaker our every need was taken care of. Having a chef for this number of people was a must and the food for great. They even had dinner waiting for us the first night, which was not expected but so appreciated. When we got up the next morning Juan had delivered a high chair for my young granddaughter, we had not even asked for!! Every request has delivered and always with a smile. Our only really regret was we left without being able to give Juan one more hug and thank him again for being so gracious.

This was supposed to be a once in a life time trip that with any luck we can do over and over again. Thank you Juan and thanks to your amazing family as well.

PERFECT! ABSOLUTELY AMAZING PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5

Our family had been to La Punta several times so we knew what to expect. At least we thought we did. We had rented 2 other villas in the development in past years, but always left feeling a bit left down. The images did not really represent the product and the villas both need a lot of maintenance and we paid more in both cases for a less product. NOT SO at CASA DEL SOL. From the moment we drove up to the front of the villa and were met by the property caretaker we were amazed at its spectacular presence. Such a grand entrance to what truly was a perfect property for our vacation. The entire family spent most of the time pool side in what must be the largest swimming pool I have ever seen in a private home. The cabana area which offers a wet bar, fridge and barbeque was perfect for our gathering. The home was spotless and we have so much room to spread out, with so many bedrooms and bathrooms. The views from the upper balconies were splendid where we had many a morning coffee enjoying the sunrise. I would recommend this villa to everyone and know we will be back next year.

Owner's Response: How gracious of you David to speak so highly of your experience at Casa del Sol. I am so happy you and your family enjoyed yourself. I have heard repeatedly how pleased guests have been after their stay and I am so pleased you actually took the time to write a review. I only wish more guests would do so. I note your families pleasure with the large swimming pool and cabana area. I must tell you that it is the largest swimming pool within a private residence in the entire complex of La Punta. I can imagine with a group of 6 you managed to get lost in the house a few times, but again I am so pleased you enjoyed yourselves. It would be my pleasure to welcome you and your family back again when you are next considering a vacation to family friendly Mexico.
