NEWLY RENOVATED IN 2016 and 2017 including whole-house, standby generator for power outages! Casa Del Sol Family Beach House is a totally updated Spanish style home with all the amenities. Located directly on the Caribbean Sea, this private, single-family, gated home has a large in-ground swimming pool that overlooks the sea. The outdoor cabana dining and bar area is perfect for hours of daytime entertainment and evening dining al fresco with the relaxing sound of lapping waves a few feet away! Our renovation includes a complete pool redesign with "sun shelf" for wading and splashing and multi-color LED pool light. In the kitchen, we installed new granite, tile, smooth top stove, and refrigerator. Upgrades also include new furniture, beds, linens, lighting, and kitchen supplies. We feature a 50" flat screen, high-def cable TV with Netflix and other apps, high-speed wireless internet (20mbps which can be utilized all over the property-even while floating in the pool!), flat screen in master with Apple TV, flat screen in 2nd br with Apple TV and 3 new, high-quality, split-unit air conditioners. We've also recently added a stainless steel 450 gallon fresh water cistern on the roof with pump and pressure tank for enhanced water pressure inside the house as well as backup for when the city water is down (island utilities can be unpredictable).
The expansive covered veranda hosts a variety of seating areas and another dining option for 6. French windows open at the kitchen sink to allow a beautiful view of the pool and beach.
For those wanting to enjoy the beautiful sea breeze, 2 sets of french doors open to the covered veranda. This home is located in an authentic Puerto Rican neighborhood and is off the beaten path of tourism. Immerse yourself in this Latin-Caribbean fishing town of Patillas where you can sometimes see the local fisherman right from your backyard. Casa Del Sol Family Beach House is for those who truly want to get away from it all. You might only see a handful of people on the beach and those are likely local Puerto Ricans out for a family stroll or perhaps one of the local fisherman casting his net for bait. The ice cream man still drives by often with his whimsical music blaring (some trucks even have soft-serve) Flag him down for a cool treat on a warm day, then go jump back in the pool and float end to end looking up at the dozens of soaring coconut palms surrounding you overhead. Speaking of coconuts, stop at the local market and order a freshly opened coco frio with a straw for you and the kids. (You might want to add a touch of rum for the adults). Also, pull over where you see the pescao (fish) sign (KM 116.9) and meet the fisherman there about noon to purchase your fresh lobster or snapper for the evening meal. Prepare it yourself or one of the local restaurants can prepare it for you. Fire up the charcoal grill poolside and grill steaks along with your caught that morning lobster and then linger over a long dinner seaside AND poolside with the relaxing sound of the Caribbean waves mere feet away. At night, you won't believe the thousands of stars in the dark, southern Caribbean sky (we see a falling star or two often). You will also surely relish the sweet sound of the tiny coqui frog as it sings it's magical "ko kee" signature call all evening. We have yet to be so lucky, but our guests that stayed at Casa Del Sol Family Beach House in January 2017, witnessed the magical journey of dozens of sea turtles making their way to the sea (some had to be rescued by the guests out of our pool), a truly memorable experience!! Puerto Rico's Department of Natural Resources marks and monitors the numerous sea turtle nests that dot our beach throughout the nesting season including Hawksbill and Leatherback which can grow up to 1500 lbs!
Casa Del Sol Family Beach House offers you all of these family experiences and more that you just can't find anywhere else. Please contact us before booking! We want to make sure your vacation needs are what we have to offer!
If you are the type of family that is looking for resort hustle and bustle, nonstop nightlife and casino action, this property is NOT for you.

Our home is in a residential area and unfortunately we can not host parties, groups, or weddings.
