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

We stayed at Casa del sol the week of Easter Sunday - this is our second time staying and we will be back . The house is comfortable, clean and accommodates our gathering of 9 for the holiday meal. Love the deck and expansive view from house. The owners has the house well stocked with things you would use. Hotel rooms in this area are priced a lot more than what you get for a full size home right on the beach . Very pleased with our visit ..Looking forward to returning

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!

Nice View - very quiet

  • 4 of 5

The view was nice, house needs some TLC, painting, a deep cleaning- lots of dust behind dressers-, and needs updated sheets and beds. Dryer needs worked on. Carpet in master needs cleaned. Outside landscape needs grooming. This is in the hurricane Matthew area - so a lot of houses in area are being worked on from the storm damage. We enjoyed the beach and the views. Only 2 televisions in whole house- needs one in game room.- master bedroom tv needs new cable. Steps to beach are treacherous- looks like they were done recently but I hope they didn't pay someone to do the construction. Very quiet and rural- our teens were bored - had to drive for activities. Great location if u want peace and quiet. Overall a good stay!

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!
