Welcome to Casa Del Sol. At the end of a private lane there awaits Casa del Sol. While you are here, this is your beach house. Experience the therapy of waking up and looking at the waves as they reflect the morning sun. Feel the cool ocean breeze and the hot sun. Dive into the sea, walk on the beach, or just sit on the porch. Relax and watch TV while looking at the ocean through the expansive glass doors. In the evenings, stargaze and dream.

We have preserved the beachy feeling of our oceanfront house while still giving you the conveniences you deserve. There are flat screen TVs in every bedroom and each living area has a large TV with DVDs and VCRs. We have games, books and water toys. Sit in the shady porches or out on the large balconies. If your budget is tight, cooking at home can save you more money a day than the cost of the house, so renting a house is a great way to save.

Large parties can rent the entire home or smaller parties (only during off season) can rent just half and still feel like they have a beautiful beach house.

The Beach Level is called Island Tropics. In the tropics they love shade as much as they love sun. One feels good because of the other. In this level you have the colors of the islands: greens, yellows, blues, and corals. Colorful paintings, tile floors, and stained wood furniture. This level has a massage chair so you can relax after a tough day at the beach. Since it is at beach level you just walk out the back porch and your toes are in the sand. Sitting on the shady porch, you will feel like you are in your own private beach somewhere in the caribbean. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, full kitchen, Livingroom (queen sleeper couch and twin sleeper ottoman), dining room and Laundry facilities.

The upstairs is called Key West. Bright apple greens, sky blues, corals, white wood furniture and wood floors. This unit has skylights. It offers 2 balconies and a shaded porch. The show-stopper, however, is its spectacular view. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, full kitchen, Livingroom (queen sleeper), dining room and Laundry facilities.

We have parking for 8 cars and are located away from busy A1A. We have a no driving beach. This means unobstructed views and is also safer for kids. The beach is wide, flat and sandy- no cliffs or rocks like the beaches north and south of us.

The oldest and (in my opinion) most romantic town of St Augustine is a 10 minute drive away. There is a shuttle that takes you back and forth. Be prepared to feel like you have stepped back in time to a town somewhere in Spain. You can even take a carriage ride.

Some things to do:

Within 2 blocks.-Restaurants (closest one sells newspapers), spa, shops, surf shop and surf lessons, miniature golf, bike/surfboard/kayak etc. rental, a pool owned by a restaurant where you can have a drink, listen to music and watch the kids swim.

Within 5 min- Pier (with kids free water park), Public tennis courts, play gound, library, YMCA (w/ daily or weekly memberships for pool and exercise center- very affordable), Alligator Farm, Amphitheater, Lighthouse, marinas

Within 10 min- Beautiful old St Augustine- historic and romantic

Within 15 min- Large Outlet mall, swimming with the dolphins at Marineland, famous World Golf Village

Within 30-45 min- Daytona Races

Within 60-90 min- Orlando( Disney World, MGM etc.)

We want Casa del Sol to become your beach home that you return to as a yearly tradition. Where life slows down and you let your heart take the lead and give your brain a vacation. A place where you have many great memories of carefree times with family and friends. To ensure this, we have one important rule: When you step onto our walkway, please leave your troubles behind -relax and enjoy.

About Marta Roth

Chuck and I are just a couple of kids pretending to be adults ( Don't you feel that way, too ?). Somehow, we have managed to fool our kids, grand kids and bosses.

We are high school sweethearts who came from different backgrounds but had the same dreams. We believed in family, hard work and trying to make everyone's day just a little bit better. Casa Del Sol is the result of those dreams and beliefs. We like to think our house creates memories that last a lifetime.

Marta Roth purchased this house in 2004

Why Marta Roth chose St. Augustine Beach

Chuck was raised in a New Jersey Beach and I come from a Caribbean island. When we saw this place, he said 'this reminds me of my beach in LBI' and I said, 'this makes me feel like I am on the islands. We knew that was our beach house.

What makes this house unique

Oceanfront with unbelievable views, non-driving beach, walking distance to restaurants and shops, near a historical city, quiet street, can accomodate large parties and still give them private spaces, all the comforts of home while experiencing true oceanfront living, economical- you can save $1000s on food by cooking in our fully equipped kitchens or grills.

One of our favorite things to do: Around 5:00pm we take some chairs, drinks (plastic containers), cheese and crackers and sit at the water's edge until the sun goes down. Sometimes we call and order pizza and have it delivered to us on the beach. Paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed my stay here again in your lovely beach house. But, Wow, what a hot spell. My daughter and her husband and my great granddughter (2yrs old) stayed in the beach level. Great family time. Hope to be back again. Was also here in January but stayed in beach level. This time I was in the upper level.

This place is a real gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself, brother and sister-in-law had the pleasure of renting the top level of this beach house for a dual celebration. This house is not "steps from the beach", this house is on the beach. Stepping into this beautifully appointed beach home we were just blown away by the colors, the warmth and the amazing location. We have rented using VRBO from Maine to Florida, if you are looking for a comfortable way for 2 couples to spend a week together and each have privacy this is your place. The owners have thought of everything! We loved our next door hangout The Beachcomber, if you stop by, be sure and tell Danielle we sent some business her way, she was great. This beach home was 2 thumbs way up!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a lovely review. Even though the restaurant is facing another street, it is still convenient to walk around to but still quiet since the back of our house faces the back of the restaurant. Almost like having the house in a resort where you can walk to the different restaurants. I am sure Danielle will appreciate the referrals. They have great food.

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house to celebrate my mom's 82nd birthday. It was a girls only party-we got to leave our husbands and kids at home! Yeah! So this house was perfect for 6 women. Plenty of bathrooms and we each got our own bed! It was perfect having the 2 levels as the early risers slept on the bottom floor, easy out to walk the beautiful beach first thing in the morning while the others slept. The house is in the perfect location, we walked over to Mango Mango's a couple times to eat-very yummy. We didn't eat at the Beachcomber next door but their menu looks great. We were a bit concerned about having a restaurant next door but we didn't have any issues with noise. The upstairs deck is large and you have beautiful views of the ocean even from inside the house. Cooking and looking at the ocean-2 wonderful things! I highly recommend this house if you are looking to stay on the beach, it is perfect and Marta is wonderful to work with. Thanks so much for letting us stay at your beautiful house

Fantastic! Awesome! Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

I have been negligent in writing a review but wanted to let potential renters of this property know that this is a wonderful home. One of our daughters has been living in St. Augustine since 2011 and will likely be leaving in 2015 as her husband will be graduating. We wanted our other daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren to see the beautiful area of St. Augustine prior to their departure. As we looked at places to rent we were attracted to the Casa del Sol. We had our daughter check it out and she discovered its awesomeness. We rented both the upstairs and the downstairs and the accommodations were perfect for our group which consisted of me and my wife, our four daughters, two sons-in-law and seven grandchildren. The bedrooms were spacious and each had a private bath, which was an especially great feature. There also was a half bath on each level for community use. The home was beautifully decorated and well furnished. The kids loved having a "sandbox" as the backyard. There is a wonderful, unobtrusive restaurant next door. The beach was a short walk away (with nothing but sand and a little brush between the home and the ocean). Although the home had a secluded feel, a main street with plenty of shops and restaurants are within a short walking distance. If you love to stay in a beautiful home in a beautiful setting, you will not be disappointed. If we have another reunion in St. Augustine we will definitely plan on staying here. Plus...Marta is wonderful to work with - very responsive.

Owner's Response: Thank you, John, for taking the time to review our property. You hit on all reasons my husband and I purchased the house and thought others would enjoy it. Even though the house is close to shops and restaurants, it still has that secluded "Island" feel. Even the restaurant next to it, is really on another street and faces that street so we are not affected by their business. There is landscaping between both properties so most people think it is just a house until they go around to that street and find the beachy restaurant. Many of our guests have described it as being in a private home with all the benefits of a resort where everything is walking distance. You and your family were wonderful guests and we hope so see you back often. Thanks, again.

Fabulous Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We are four mature couples who meet once a year & this beach house was the perfect place. It was everything the advertisement said it was and more. We had the whole house, which was beautifully decorated with fabulous views of the ocean from the upstairs living & dining area and deck...which was very spacious. It was very clean with lots of space for our things. Located at the end of a lane, the place was so very quiet and peaceful. We spent a lot of time on both decks. All eight of us agreed that this was the best place we have ever stayed, and we will definitely return. We loved the home!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Peggy, for such a kind review. It really means a lot. You were amazing guests. In fact, you were so good that I thought the maids had already been there when I checked the house after you left. Thank you for noticing all the wonderful things our house has to offer and for caring for it while there. I know you and your friends meet somewhere different every year but know that your St Augustine beach house will still be hoping for your return.

Chillaxing Environment with Family -

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into the home we knew we made the best choice for our family of eleven to enjoy nine nights and ten days of joy! Every amenity was available and functional. The interior design was perfect plus comfortable. Every person had space to relax, enjoy meals, read, play games, go seashell searching, walking, etc. The locals surrounding the home were quiet and the neighborhood was relaxed each day. Forget the restaurants, have your kids present their best dinners and cleanup while enjoying the ocean views with your grandkids. Our compliments to the owners, Marta and Chuck, for creating a special place to share with others!
