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 were thinking of renting a couple of rooms at a local resort but then we looked at renting a vacation rental home to accommodate our group of 9. This was a great option, Casa del Sol was a very welcoming , well cared for home. The owner thinks of all the little things that you need and its there! The view from the home is gorgeous , waking up every morning to the peacefulness of the ocean was amazing. Owners were very easy to work with.

Two weeks of Perfect Relaxation, Calmness, Beauty and Fun

  • 5 of 5

House was great. Fully furnished with more than we needed. Would have loved to have had another TV in the main bed room on the main floor but other than that, it was perfect. The weather was great and the beach, clean and empty. Truly is a private beach with NO motor vehicles. Neighbors are great and not intrusive by any means. Lots of shells to search for and High and Low tides are great. So much fun in the water and waves and the view is better than I had imagined. If I get to take two weeks again, then this is my destination of choice. So relaxed and tan too. :-) Thanks for making this a trip that we will not forget. The Curl Family - June 2017

Casa del Sol is lovely!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this beautiful beach house for 10 days and loved it! The deck and view of the beach is amazing! The house has everything that you need and the kitchen is fully stocked for cooking, so great to have a nice skillet! Great house for a few couples to share! Watching the sun rise each morning was amazing! Loved beachcombing everyday and found some great treasures from the sea! Thank you Karen and Mike for renting your lovely beach house to us!

Lovely property and a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Casa del Sol was the perfect property for the three of us. We really liked the openness of the kitchen and living area. The kitchen is so large and accommodating. The ocean, at high tide, is often up to the sea wall. Low tide provides a very wide beach, great for walks and shelling. The bedrooms were nice and comfortable, and the decor was very "beachy". We were there for a month, January 28 to February 25, 2017. Loved our views of the ocean! It was just what we were looking for in a beach house. The driveway was a bit narrow, and access to the A1A somewhat obstructed. Other than that, it is a perfect beach house. We would love to stay there again in the future. Mike and Karen were easy to reach and responded quickly during the rental process and our stay. We highly recommend Casa del Sol!!

Case Del Sol-soothing to the soul....

  • 5 of 5

Casa Del Sol was the perfect setting for our family getaway. Large enough to fit my family yet cozy and comfy enough for rest and relaxation. The kitchen was made for our mini-Thanksgiving celebration and the living room perfect for naps, games, and movies. Morning coffee and puzzles out on the deck followed by strolls on the beach. Perfectly wonderful. We can't wait to do it all again 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.
