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

We have stayed here a few times and keep coming back. Our son lives in Ponte Vedra so its really convenient when we visit and enjoy our grandkids. I like the fact that the owners manage the property and are very accommodating to their guests. They continue to make improvements to the home , and keep it well maintained. The beach is just steps away and the view is great. I also like the decor of the home .

Casa del Sol

The Casa del Sol worked out quite well for us - again - as we vacationed there in 2008. Plenty of everything needed for a party of 9. Sleeping, dining, bathroom accommodations, etc. exceeded our needs.

family vacation

  • 5 of 5

we just returned from a week long family vacation at this lovely house that my oldest daughter found to rent and i already want to go back. the ocean truly is only steps away and it was so relaxing to be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. the beach was wonderfully uncrowded. the large open kitchen/family area was awesome and we watched the most beautiful sunrises over the ocean! the rec room was a big hit with all and having that downstairs bathroom was super convenient! can't say enough nice things about the place. close to St Augustine but far enough out that it wasn't crazy.

Casa del Sol Jan 2015

  • 4 of 5

We love the property, so close to the ocean. This is our 2nd time visiting and plan to come back. The furniture in the living room could be more comfortable and the lights easier to figure out, but it is all good.

A blissful week, right on the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

We had a blissful week at the Casa del Sol. The ocean is steps away, and the view was spectacular. The house was decorated beautifully and was warm and welcoming. The upstairs master suite was beautifully appointed. Two other bedrooms on the main floor face the ocean, and the third bedroom faces a lovely wild area of marshes and trees. Games and children's books were plentiful. The location is very convenient to beautiful St. Augustine. Although we didn't use it, the detached rec room on the ground level with ping pong table, sofa and full bath would have been ideal for a teenager who wants some privacy. The weather was cold and rainy on our week but it was still a beautiful stay. I miss hearing the ocean every night already. Thanks, Casa del Sol!
