About Sue Molloy

My fiance, Derek, and I live in the main house in front of the cottage, so we are close by and ready to help if any of our guests have questions or need assistance. We are both avid cyclists, I am also a runner. We both love the outdoors and we love to travel, especially to Europe! Derek is from S. Africa and I am from Chicago. We actually met on bicycles.

Sue Molloy purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Sue Molloy chose West Palm Beach

South Florida is a great place to be, especially if you are escaping the cold north! Our cottage has everything a traveler could need. Not only is it cute, but it is always neat and clean. It is very private as well. The entrance to the cottage is through the back alley. There is a privacy fence that separates our back yard from the private cottage courtyard. Sometimes we never even see our guests!

What makes this cottage unique

The Intercoastal waterway is only 3 blocks away. It is very nice to take a stroll or a bike ride along the water. There are "Ski Bike" stations in and around downtown where you can rent bikes from the street to get around on. There is also a free trolley that you can get on 4 blocks away that will take you downtown and to other shopping and restaurant areas.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cottage. We loved the location and quiet neighborhood. We were able to walk to different restaurants and coffee shops and had some amazing food. We also really enjoyed going to the beach!

Sweet cottage

  • 4 of 5

My sister & I recently stayed at Casa del Sol for 3 nights. It fit our needs perfectly with a spacious kitchen and bath and a super comfortable bed. It is a true bargain considering both the neighborhood and quality of the furnishings of the cottage. We loved how private it is and it is a plus to park outside the gate in the back alley. It is a convenient base for exploring both beach and city attractions. Communication with Sue was super easy and we appreciated the clear instructions for finding and checking into the property. We walked to some restaurants in the Northwood area, but for live entertainment and restaurant variety we preferred CityPlace and Clematis Street, plus we weren't 100% comfortable walking in back to the cottage at night from the Northwood restaurant area as there are some sketchy areas on the fringe of Northwood. However, the historic and beautiful neighborhood location of the cottage is serene and lovely to explore on foot, particularly during the day. We liked Sunset Grill and stopped into a new salon called The Beauty Lounge where the owner offered a good deal on a mani and pedi. We would definitely stay at the cottage for future visits to the area. Sue provides basic sand chairs and beach towels making it easy for travelers, but if you plan to spend a few days visiting area beaches (our fave was Juno), I suggest investing in a comfortable beach chair.

Casa del sol is perfect!! I would definitely stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very comfortable, well equipped with the comforts of home and peaceful. It features a full kitchen with anything you could want from a stove and microwave to coffee filters!! The bathroom has a great shower, also with towels, sunscreen, hairdryer, etc...

There is comfortable seating outdoors as well as shade if desired. Stackable washer and dryer for an added convenience!!

Sue and Derek have provided a lovely place to stay! They are thoughtful as there were flowers, chocolate and a nice note from them on the table when we got here. This has been a very enjoyable experience and I am hoping to return next year!

Casa del Sol was perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We visited West Palm Beach (WPB) for a dive trip and needed something with good location and comfortable space. Casa del Sol was perfect and even better than the listing could portray. Located near Northwood Village, it is within walking distance of some great restaurants and shops and convenient to north/south highways connecting you to the greater WPB area. The cottage was lovely and clean and the hosts have attended to guests' needs with a healthy wi-fi signal, soap, shampoo, paper towels, etc. The location is in a lovely, quiet neighborhood and we felt safe at all times. We had complete privacy and plenty of space in the pretty courtyard to hang/place our dive gear for drying. Sue & Derek even provided a portable rack that was perfect for the wetsuits. The kitchen is very well appointed and the bathroom was well-stocked with everything needed. We will definitely try to stay here again when we visit. Thank you Sue and Derek for a great stay. We recommend this vacation rental. We hope to be back!
