About Karen Shields or Mike Shields

We love Casa del Sol and it is truly 'the House of the Sun': The house is direct Oceanfront, beach is within steps of home, visitors comment on how much they enjoy our home and feel so comfortable and welcomed. Guests can watch the dolphins swim by and the pelicans fly above from our deck. We take pride in our home and have many repeat renters.

Karen Shields or Mike Shields purchased this house in 1999

Why Karen Shields or Mike Shields chose St. Augustine Area

The location is perfect, mostly residential non commercial, private beach yet Downtown St Augustine is less than a 15 minute drive. You dont have to worry about crowds or cars driven on beach. Guests love to swim in ocean or enjoy the beach club usage just 5 minutes away. You can also fish from shore. Marina is close by. The Guana State Park is directly across the street. The inter coastal waterway is just to the west- deep sea fishing excursions offered at local marina.

What makes this house unique

The Views!! Watching the sunrise is amazing or the moon rising. Our Deck is so relaxing. Playing in sand walking on beach enjoying,waking to the peaceful sounds of the waves. The Guana State Park entrance just one mile north -

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cant tell you how much we enjoyed our stay here. Your kitchen was the perfect setting for our weekend - we did puzzles, played cards, celebrated both thanksgiving and my birthday . Coffee with the sunrise out on your porch was a blessing. Plan on returning next year

Great house and amazing view

  • 5 of 5

10 of us in all, including 3 kids spent 3 nights at this wonderful house. Everything was clean when we arrived. Plenty of parking, even for 2 large trucks. The kitchen and large dining table made it easy to cook and share meals. We enjoyed watching college football together and being able to eat lunch on the deck. The deck also allowed for an older family member to view the ocean without climbing down stairs. Loved listening to the sound of the waves from bed and looking out the window at an unspoiled view. The beach was quiet and mostly empty, just a lot of walkers and no cars! Our group enjoyed surfing and fishing right in front of the house. The rec room and ping pong were a big hit too. We will recommend this house to any group of people looking to share space together because there was plenty of room for different sleeping arrangements. We put the rollaway bed to use after needing to put an infant to sleep in their own room. This was a great added feature and helped us all feel comfortable. None of us ever felt on top of each other, even with only 1 bathroom on the main floor. Thanks for a wonderful getaway...

Wonderful Deck to Watch the Sun and Moon Rise

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I were looking for an ocean front place to gather to celebrate our mother's 90th birthday and Casa Del Sol was the perfect home! We are from the area and know that South Ponte Vedra is a beautiful and quiet beach. This house had plenty of space for the families to gather yet not be on top of each other. The kitchen is well equipped (we brought a few things with us just in case- but didn't need anything). There is plenty of counter space, and large tables both inside and outside. The beds were comfortable and the views amazing.

The large shaded deck with lots of seating was our favorite spot. We sat on the deck with our coffee each morning and watched the sun rise. The beach is known by locals for good surf fishing and my husband brought a pole and enjoyed fishing on the beach in front of the house. Our mother spent the majority of the days on the deck visiting with family and studying shells. There was a wonderful afternoon sea breeze that made it even more enjoyable. The access to the beach was easy enough for her to also venture down to see what the tide brought in. (There are two sets of stairs to get down to the beach but both have sturdy rails. The owner also allowed me to come look at the property ahead of booking make sure my mother could handle the stairs.) At night we sat on the deck studied the stars. From sun rise to moon rise it truly was the perfect place to gather for such a special occasion.

Lovely beach house- perfect for making family memories

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I were looking for a place to gather to celebrate our mother's 90th birthday. Her two favorite things are family and the beach- and Casa Del Sol turned out to be the perfect setting. The house is truly lovely, with nice beachy decor that was both pretty and comfortable. The views from inside are great- she especially loved the large windows looking out from her bedroom (and the beds were comfortable). The kitchen was large and extremely well stocked- my sisters and brought some kitchen items just in case but didn't need any of it. There is a lot of counter space and a huge dining table. The large shaded deck was our favorite spot. There is a big, solid table and lots of different kinds of chairs where family members could congregate. Access to the beach was easy enough that even my mother would venture down to see what the tide brought in. Then she would sit at the big porch table with a shell book and share her findings. We are from Jacksonville so we knew that this area has a pretty, quiet, red sand beach, and that the afternoon sea breeze would be delightful. South Ponte Vedra Beach is also known for good surf fishing, so my husband brought his pole and enjoyed fishing in front of the house every morning. We watched the sun rise, the moon rise and studied the stars from the wonderful deck.

The owner was very helpful in answering questions before we booked, and allowed me to come look at the property to make sure my mother could handle the stairs. Casa Del Sol was truly the perfect gathering place for us on this special occasion. We are already talking about a return visit next year.

A true gem and very special place

  • 5 of 5

This home on the Florida coast was an amazing getaway. I truly cannot say enough about our vacation on this beach, in this house. I will say the house layout was different than I anticipated, felt more like a very large beach cottage - the kitchen and living space were combined into a massive room. The first floor has 3 bedrooms (no tvs) and 1 shared bathroom, the upstairs was a master suite with a tv and bath. This actually worked perfectly for our family needs. We didn't really use the downstairs game room, the kids were a bit too young to want the separation from us - but it was convenient for the little ones to shower off the sandy beach in that bathroom in the evenings. Our family consisted of 5 adults and 2 children - aged 5 & 7.

The beach was amazing. We were there in early August, plenty of heat and sunshine, and yet the beach was quiet and private. A few neighbors occasionally passed by, but truly, it felt wonderfully private. Plenty of opportunities to be alone with your thoughts as you wander the shore. It reminded me a lot of the Carolina beaches, with the lovely tides and smooth sands.

The house was one of the nicest ones on this portion of the beach, and has had recent updates which made it fresh and clean. The deck on this house is the real selling point. Beautifully appointed, with a big dining table for evening dinners overlooking the ocean and plenty of daytime seating. We couldn't get enough of it.

Plenty of sea turtle nests (we had the pleasure/worry of watching some baby turtles emerge - though some had come out during the daytime which was a worry as the heat/sun is too much for the babies. A few didn't make it. The neighbors were knowledgeable and attentive - we had the authorities called in to look after the confused nest and saved those we could.) But as you can see, a once in a lifetime experience.

The area has plenty of local restaurants to try out and St. Augustine was adorable, it was only about 10-15 minutes to get anywhere you needed (groceries, dining, St. Augustine). We even took a day trip out to the Kennedy Space Center - an absolute MUST.

Truly, if you are looking for a family beach vacation spot that will offer privacy and quiet, but have access to the fun of restaurants and activities, this is the house and the spot you are looking for. Every one of our family members (even the kiddos) have expressed the desire to return.

A fun filled week at an incredible beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Although my family has vacationed at South Ponte Vedra Beach before, this was our first time at Casa del Sol. We had three families with a total of 6 adults and 4 children between the ages of 1 - 7 years old. The house is so child friendly and the big dinning room table allowed all of us to eat together...no kids table! The covered deck porch allowed for sitting out even when sunny and the beach is only steps away. There is an outdoor shower and a hose to wash off on the way in from the beach and a covered ground floor area where we set up a little pool for the kids. The owners were extremely helpful and responsive to any questions we had and were so easy to work with in booking the house. I loved our time there with my children and grandchildren and I have the best memories. We had kites, sparklers, great food, drinks, some amazing afternoon storms, lots of beach toys(provided by the house), and adventures galore. Thanks for a wonderful week at the beach!

Amazing views, beautiful home in great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved Casa Del Sol. The house was wonderful. Clean, spacious, with a great view of the beach right from the living room. There was also a nice size deck with plenty of seating. The house is just a few steps from a very quiet beach. It seemed that the only other people on the beach were the renters or owners of the neighboring houses. The house had anything you could need including plenty of toys for the beach. The owners are wonderful to work with and we would definitely return!!
