About Sherry Norling

We have rented out our home in Puerto Rico for the past four years and it has been an amazing journey making dream vacations come true and to share our little piece of paradise with wonderful people like you from every corner of the world.
Sherry Norling purchased this house in 2005
Why Sherry Norling chose Patillas
We travel quite a bit as empty nesters and wanted to find a home somewhere in the tropics. We bought in Puerto Rico, because it is a fresh clean green island and is US territory. Honestly the topography reminds us of a mini Costa Rica. With out the long flight and of course no passport needed for US citizens like us. It was the perfect fit for us as we had stayed on the island several times through the years and knew this is where we wanted to settle down. We are very American, and wanted a diverse culture like Puerto Rico has and still feel we are safe in our surroundings. Best of both worlds. I have felt at home there at every visit and then from the day we bought our property. We now know our nieghbors and local business owners in our little town. We bring them business and in turn they take care of us and our guests. We find our guests have always been made to feel welcome as well. We have had guests come and stay from all over the world!
What makes this house unique
We spent a month looking at over 40 homes on every side of Puerto Rico for just the right home to buy. When we saw this property we knew this was it. The location was amazing, right out of a story book and the house simply true Authentic Puerto Rican beach home. Spanish architecture, terrazzo floors, All concrete with a spanish verandah wrapped around this house. We just came in a gave it a good cleaning and great ammenities, with new windows, the central air etc. This old house needed TLC. We did just that! The house had great bones and charm. You can renovate a house. But of course NOT the location! The scenic views from the back yard were just breath taking. The location could not be beat. Now we have best of both worlds! A beautiful house full of charm and a location that dreams are made of. We are unigue in that we are truly on a sandy oceanfront property and the beach is lined as far as you can see both ways with Coconut palm trees. Not a tourist area, untouched beaches with sea shells all over the sand and such friendy people. We are glad that we have contributed by bringing business to this little fishing village, resturaunts, and shops. Authentic Puerto Rico at it's finest. We have been all over this tropical green island, and we know there is no place as beautiful as our little secret treasure on 'The Emerald of the South'
