Description from owner

This ocean front home is set up as two separate levels but rented as an entire house. This gives large families and their spouses, more personal space. Each level has its own kitchen and living areas, 2 bedrooms, 1 queen sleeper, 2 full baths and 1 half baths. Each level sleeps 2-7 people. The whole house sleeps 14 people.

Welcome to Casa Del Sol! At the end of a private lane there awaits the cozy, casual Casa del Sol. While you are here, this is your home. Experience the therapy of waking up and looking at the waves as they reflect the morning sun. Feel the cool ocean breeze and the hot sun. Dive into the sea, walk on the beach, or just sit on the porch. You can even watch TV while looking at the ocean through the expansive glass doors. In the evenings, stargaze and dream.

We have preserved the casual cozy feeling of our beach house while still giving you the conveniences you deserve. There are flat screen TVs in every bedroom and each living area has a large TV with DVDs and VCRs. We have games, books and water toys.

The lower level is called Old Havana. Tropical greens, sunset yellows, palm trees, tiles, and stained wood furniture. It feels like an oasis from the hot sun. Sit on the porch and let the rest of the world do all the work. This floor is at beach level so you just walk out the back porch and you are on the sand.

The upper level is called Key West. Bright apple greens, sky blues, corals, white wood furniture and wood floors. This unit has skylights so you better like bright spaces. The show stopper, however, is its spectacular view. The side of the house facing the ocean is practically all glass doors.

We have plenty of private parking and are located away from busy A1A. We have a no driving beach. This means unobstructed views and is also safer for kids. The beach is wide, flat and sandy- no cliffs or rocks like the beaches north and south of us.

There are at least 4 restaurants within one block. Shops are also within walking distance. For those who need some pampering, there is a spa a couple blocks away. The restaurant at the beginning of the street has a public pool. The surf shop rents surfboards and gives lessons.

The oldest and (in my opinion) most romantic town of St Augustine is a 10 minute drive away. There is a shuttle that takes you back and forth. Be prepared to feel like you have stepped back in time to a town somewhere in Spain.

We want Casa del Sol to become your beach home that you return to as a yearly tradition. A place where you have many great memories of carefree times with family and friends. So we have one very important rule: When you step on our walkway, please leave your troubles behind -relax and enjoy.

It could not have been better if we had built the house ourselves. We had the best time ever. Our stay was so easy as everything we could possibly need was in the house for us. It was spotless. We would definitely rent it again.

Owner's reply: Thank you, Edie! You ladies were wonderful, too.

“Great Beach House!”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2013

My husband and I have been staying at Casa Del Sol since 2007. The house is located right on the best part of St. Augustine Beach. It is always clean and stocked with everything you need to be comfortable. We love the restaurants that you can walk to and enjoy the local food. The historic town of St. Augustine is just a short drive too. Marta and Chuck are great to make sure everything is perfect for you vacation. We have had a lot of great times there!

Owner's reply: Thank you, Dorothy, for writing such nice things about the house and its location. We love our "regulars" and knowing that our beach house is part of your fond memories.

“GREAT HOUSE!!”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2013

Great house!! Great place for a family vacation!! Our family meets here from all over the USA - each summer to enjoy the sun, beach, ocean and a wonderful house that makes us feel like we are at home.

Owner's reply: I am so glad your family feels like it is your beach home. That is what we strive for. Thank you

“Paradise!!!”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2012

We are eager for our 4th visit to Casa Del Sol on St. Augustine Beach to ring in New Years! This is the perfect beach home in one of our favorite little cities. Marta and Chuck go out of their way to assure comfort and attention to details. Their home is steps away from the sand, surf shops, great eateries, and a fabulous grocery store! I love to cook and bake in the kitchen while the kids ride bikes on the beach or catch a few waves. Our labrador retriever couldn't be any happier watching the pelicans fly overhead from the upper deck or tromping thru the quaint neighborhood streets on her evening walk. All the rooms are comfortable, spacious, and well-appointed. Casa Del Sol is the perfect place for an amazing beach getaway.....no wonder we are going back for the 4th time!!!

Owner's reply: Hi Sue and David, Thank you for letting others know about Casa del Sol. We love having you stay here regularly. It is families like you that make this house have a wonderful feel about it. See you again on soon.

“Perfect home!”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2012

We brought 3 other couples with us to share this home and all loved it- hated to leave! Views upstairs on deck are the best anywhere! Private sandy "beach" area off of lower covered porch was perfect- quick access to ocean also. Both levels are very open with great kitchens and living areas. LOVE the "sitting area" on the upstairs porch! Great place to sit and read- cool breezes and great view of the ocean- we definitely plan to come here again!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much, Susan. I know you have stayed in many of the homes in St Augustine Beach so we are very honored by your review.

“Loved this place!”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2010

We have stayed in several of the ocean front properties all around the A Street area and this works out to be the very best for us. We went with 2 families with preteens/teens so the kids set up base downstairs and the adults enjoyed the upstairs - PERFECT. The view is great, the area is great and having bathrooms for each bedroom was great! Lots of room for all your beach gear, surfboards. Love letting the kids be able to get snacks, etc from Beachcomber and other local places. All in all, the owners have created a really great place to spend a week (or more!) Thanks !

“Surfing Safari”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2009

This house is wonderful!!! I never want to stay anywhere else when I go to St. Augustine. It was so convenient for my husband and daughter who took surfing lessons from PIT Surf Shop at the end of the block. I was able to enjoy watching them while sitting on the porch (and even on the air conditioned living room couch :-). We were able to leave our chairs, towels, etc. on the beach while eating lunch in the house and still be able to watch them. This house is in the best location that I have ever seen!!!!

Thanks for a wonderful stay! Although we live not too far away, we felt like we really got away for a great labor day escape.

You have a lovely beachhouse- our guests loved the beach and felt so "at home" here.

Will be back- already we're trying to figure "when?". (They did come back a few months later)

Thanks again!
