About the owner: My husband Jorge and I purchased this property in 2005, when our 2 boys were 6 and 2. We now have three boys and our youngest is 15!
We have spent many years enjoying the lower Florida’s keys. Boating and driving and just hanging out at our property.
We hope you enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we have.
Why this property? Villa Del Sol is located in a quiet neighborhood with respectful neighbors and peaceful sunsets.
It’s close enough to all the best attractions of the lower Florida keys and yet feels like a retreat. Our guests return every year.

Cute/Nice updated home
Loved the Key West theme of the home and it was done so tastefully! Home was very clean and appeared to have been updated. It was private and had its own personal place off the canal. We loved laying in the hammock everyday with a nice breeze. We also loved the area and the restaurants nearby as well as cooking at the house a lot.
