About Karen Shields or Mike Shields

We feel in love with Casa del Sol - it is truly the 'House of the Sun' bright warm and welcoming with spectacular views of the ocean. Walk steps to the beach. We enjoy sitting on deck and watching the dolphins swim by and the pelicans flying above. So amazing to watch the sun rise.

Karen Shields or Mike Shields purchased this house in 2000

Why Karen Shields or Mike Shields chose St. Augustine Area

The location - the area is not commercial , the beach is private yet we are close to downtown st augustine which is less than a 15 minute ride away. There are no cars allowed on beach, we have great fishing right from the shore.

What makes this house unique

Waking up looking at the ocean.... the sound of the breaking waves.. peacefulness , relaxation, enjoying coffee on the deck watching the dolphins swim by

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

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!!

Nice location, private beach but house could use some updates

  • 4 of 5

Our family spent a wonderful Christmas holiday at Casa del Sol. There was plenty of room for everyone in the main living area and we really enjoyed having family dinners at the large dining table. The beach was very private although there were still some remants from the hurricane. We did not have direct beach access because the steps down to the beach had not been repaired. The house and furniture are a little worn but overall we had a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response - we are happy you enjoyed your stay ! Our beach stairs (which were damaged by storm) are fully repaired and we do have beach access - unfortunately during the time the tenant stayed at home, the stairs were under construction- We were at the mercy of the repairman's schedule.... but all repairs are complete. We just repainted, bought new comforters and linens, added new flooring to entire first floor, our guests have been very pleased and happy !

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.
