We are Dave and Sherry and live in San Diego California and plan on retiring in seven years to spring and summer in San Diego and fall and winter in Puerto Rico with our children and grandchildren. 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

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!

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'

We are 2 families with 4 children ages 6 to 12 that go to different beach front homes every year. We have seen many islands through the years and stayed at other wonderful houses. This one exceeds them all. Spent 9 days here. The island has more activities than any other for all ages. We zip lined, went on a fabulous catermeran tour to Culebra, Deep sea fishing, Jet skiing, Atv Tour, Roasted Pork in Guavate (in the middle of Carite Rain forest) Hiked El Junke Rain Forest and ate at family owed restaurants along the southern coast. Coming back to this home and location was the highlight. House is clean and impeccably taken care of. Large rooms and very comfortable beds. Back yard is like what you see on a post card. There is a Cabana with BBQ and bar that lights up the ocean front at night. Our remaining days when not exploring were spent here. Kids played in the water. very small waves and crystal clear. Got sun, lazed in the hammocks' under the canopy of Palms and snorkeled right in the back yard. This is the first time we are actually thinking of returning to the same location. Everyday was new and exciting. The weather was amazing the sea in the back yard was warm and inviting. The beaches were private an untouched unlike any other we have been too. The management was with such a personal touch. I can not say enough about the attention Irene gave us in helping us to get to our excursions easily. Sherry the owner made the booking process a breeze. Well we loved every bit of our stay. Like so many other all we can say is if you are reading this you should look no further. This little spot can not be beat. Price wise there were 9 of us staying in a 5 star...4 bedroom custom beachfront Caribbean home at rates that enabled us to do all our activities that just accommodations usually cost. You will find yourself home in paradise. There is no doubt why Sherry has the number one rental on the island. For us it is the number 1 rental in the Caribbean. We highly recommend this unique top quality vacation getaway.

Owner's Response: What a great review! Thank you. I just won another award for best oceanfront family home and most booked in all of Puerto Rico. This award was given because my management is the best. They take excellent care of you my guests (as you mentioned several times Rick:). I take care of the booking and they make sure you come to a spotlessly clean home. It's reviews like this and people like you who have taken the time to write them that got my property these awards as well. It helps those out there like you trying to find a quality home for their special vacation time. Many come to my home to get away and relax from the hustle bustle of life. They love it there too. Staying in the yard all week I personally find very tranquil when I am there as well. But I find that action packed guests like you who go out and explore the island have the best time. Thank you so much again! You will always be welcomed back to my sea shore gem on the southern coast of Puerto Rico.

Family Reunion of 17 in a Perfect Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 07-Jan-2011
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2010
We are a family of 9 adults and 8 children ages 12 thru 19. We gathered together from every part of the United States for the holidays. We really wanted to stay somewhere that gave us time to reconnect. A space we could call our own and not have to share with others. We started with looking for rentals that could fit all of us. A tall order for our wish list. We decided to rent both Casa Caribe Del Mar and Casa Caribe Del Sol. What a great decision we made as these two properties were a perfect fit. The adults stayed in Del Mar and we put all the kids in Del Sol. They loved having there own place and we had the security of having them next door. They played there music, watched what they wanted on TV and swam in the pool while we had the peace and quiet to ourselves in Del Mar when ever we wanted a break from all there excitement and energy.

Both of these homes are superbly appointed, colorful, not s speck of dust, the linens were crisp and fresh on every bed. I could tell how well cared for these homes are. MOST important is they both were spacious with enough room for us all. The houses had all the amenities we needed and more than expected. Franchesca brought fresh fish twice enough for us all. NOW location. The beach was ours!!!! What beautiful scenery with Coconut Palms lined up and down as far as you could see. I walked every morning, The locals in this residential community waved as I walked along. It had sea shells and coral. Literally untouched by regular tourist beach standards and star fish coral reefs, and shallow for swimming and that we did all day. The water pristine clear a magnificent view. The only negative is the sea is really for shallow swimming. There are many small coral spots to see the sea life but I think the big reef is to far out to explore and also a bit rough where the waves break. As it is private area there is no lifeguard. Sherry takes her time in the rental process and made it a breeze. She is very professional and her staff takes a personal interest in making sure we were comfortable. We did some tours that were fun but nothing was better than being at the houses enjoying our private paradise. All in all It was an amazing vacation for us with something of interest for everyone and we look forward to returning next year!

Owner's Response: WOW***** Thank you! This great family left this review on all my web sites. That took time! I appreciate it so much. I needed this more than you could have known. I have had a tough week with the current guests. So thank you for reminding me of the wonderful home I have and getting so fortunate to have a family like yours come and stay. You deserve the 5 stars!!!!!! You are all welcome back anytime with of course my return guest discount.

What a awesome and memorable time we had at Casa Caribe Del Mar.

First, Sherri (the owner of the property), is a champ. From the day we inquired about the property, Sherri has been extremely helpful, patient and informative. Whether it was about directions, shopping, local or tourist spots, Sherri was clear and spot on. She simply goes about her business in a very warm and professional manner.

When we arrived we were greeted by Francesca. She is awesome. She showed us around the property, and let us know all the good stuff. Francesca is the local champ.

We were a group of six. Two couples and two single guys. The place is so nice and relaxing on so many levels. The house was spotlessly clean. Everything was in place like a home should be. Anytime it was time to go it was hard to leave. Like a magnet we felt drawn to staying, and when we were gone we felt like we were being pulled back. We chilled on the hammocks, on the backyard floor, in the water, on the back porch, there are so many spots to hang out that are already designed to chill, that make it so amazing.

The property does not seem like it was designed for any specific group, as it looks like any group of people can just settle in and will love it just s we did. It is in its own secluded area and right off the water, yet close enough (5 minutues) to hang out with the locals or whoever is in town.

I strongly recommend this property, and truly want anyone considering staying here to know, that I am very glad that I have been fortunate enough to stay here. This is on mehalf of all of my friends as well.

I know awesome when I see it. Thank you Sherri and Francesca :)

Until next time.

All the best,
Mikey
Owner's Response: Thank you Mikey for taking the time to write such a great review :) I am so glad you enjoyed our home and our beautiful island. I hope to have you all back again.

A lovely time being together with family during the holiday season

As I sit here braving the severely negative temps of the coldest Midwest winter in memory, it is hard to believe just a few short weeks ago I was with my family soaking up sun, sand, warm water and making great memories. We found this lovely gem and I can honestly say it was a fantastic experience.

From the beginning, Sherry was more than helpful with making the reservation, and giving us tons of helpful advice for our stay at her property. I never had a minutes trouble getting in touch with her through email or by phone. She is professional and has great tips. Her on site manager Irene was extremely helpful, professional and willing to do whatever you need while staying in the house. I was pretty much in charge of planning this trip and these two ladies made the whole process as simple as can be. I thank them both very much for being so wonderful!

In total there were 8 of us. My husband and myself, my parents, my brother and sister in law and my two nieces 13 and 11. My husband and I travel extensively all over the world and we loved the idea of relaxing in a beach house for the week and taking a break from the hard core travelling that we are accustomed to. We absolutely loved the house. It was clean and comfortable. Waking up every morning to the ocean right outside the back door was such a wonderful experience. The back yard is absolutely gorgeous and well maintained by an excellent professional gardening staff.

There is so much to do in Puerto Rico and we enjoyed it very much. We found the people to be friendly and hospitable, the food to be delicious and the views are breath taking. We loved going on adventures during the day only to get back to our beach house for sunset and drinks and snacks on the beach. We also spent a few days around the house enjoying the yard and beach. It was the perfect place to call home for a week.

I recommend Casa Caribe del Mar for anyone who wants to spend a week in paradise making precious memories with friends and/or family. We all had a great time and would definitely return! Don't hesitate on this rental!

Owner's Response: A Christmas gift for Sherry :) Thank you Crystal for such a beautiful review. You know when I open my email and see that I have an Owner review notification, I know that no one needs to take the time to write one so I do consider it a gift of appreciation. I get very excited to read what you my guests have said about your stay. Did you love the house like I do? Did you have a good time? Etc etc. And then reading yours and giving me a 5 star rating just made my day. You made mention to some very important points about how I run my business. It has evolved into a full service rental company from a promised spotlessly clean house to location location location :) and my very special staff along with activities on the island that I feel best suits each individual party that come to my homes for a vacation. Since I have never been able to stay at my own home on Christmas holiday (I will when I retire) but until then I am so happy to have shared it with wonderful people like you at this holiday time of year. I do hope you return I would love to have you and your family back.

Number ONE Rental for 100 Reasons

  • Review Submitted: 21-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: Jan 2014
We looked at so many beautiful houses on VRBO but if you read all reviews on each site a lot said house was not quite as clean or beach not really as nice as pictures looked etc and no video??? There should be a video on all properties these days. And I wondered why not on all these other properties. Some I did not get responses for days or owner was nice but did not speak very good English which was not easy for me. I wish I could speak Spanish but I am from Idaho. We decided on Casa Caribe Del Mar because of the video it really showed us what we were getting and great reviews. Sherry contacted me the same day I inquired. She spent time with me and was very informative. I knew after speaking with her this house was it. I will tell you we feel like we won the lottery! The house and location has all and more than even the video can express. Charm, character, color..... everything we could ask for and SPOTLESSLY clean. Irene (wonderful sweet girl) met us at arrival and as she walked us through the property it took my breath away with all the beauty inside and out. I want to say that what makes this house special is it is not a mansion with fancy furnishings I would be afraid my children might break. We wanted a home away from home and this house was a real true Caribbean home. Large yet homey. A perfect size for us in perfect condition in my opinion. Everything in every room well maintained and cared for. We felt so comfortable there. The back yard against the beachfront was amazing for our children. They ran outside in the in such excitement to the grass under the Palms and played at the water edge the minute they got there. It was such a joy to see them do that. At night the whole back yard and Cabana light up under those Palms...Incredible. Sherry told us that there was a nest in the yard against the fence that the same sea turtle comes and lays her eggs every year and be careful not to walk on it. It was lined with coral so we knew where not to walk. We were amazed by just this but guess what? My children got to see the baby sea turtles hatch in early evening and walk to the sea on our third day there. AMAZING EXPERIENCE ONCE IN A LIFE TIME TO SEE THIS WONDER OF NATURE UNFOLD BEFORE OUR EYES. All the rest you have probably already read in Sherry's other reviews I will say is right on the money. So many wonderful things to say about this quaint little town, amazing food. Uncrowded and Untouched beaches. Nature at it's best. And a house I

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this incredible review. I am so happy to hear your children got to see the yearly hatching of our baby seas turtles. They lay their eggs about 3 months in a row every year along our coast and one turtle has chosen the edge of our yard as her nesting site. We are very honored by this!!!! In my almost 9 years of owning there, I have seen many nests but I have not gotten to see this wonder of nature of them hatching yet. But look forward to it in my retirement :) Great video you took of it and am trying to get it on my Facebook page. They are so tiny and love the fact that you would not let the children touch them in the video. A true respect for nature giving them the best chance for survival. This review is different than most. Although I love what guests have to say in all my reviews in fact it is what I hope to achieve in reviews. It was just great to hear of a different kind of excitement from you my guests along with all the consistent compliments we get here at Casa Caribe Properties.
Thanks Again
