Private Homes house description
This oceanfront home has porches/balconies, an open concept livingroom, dining, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, and 2 1/2 bathrooms. It sleeps 2-8 people.
Welcome to Casa Del Sol. At the end of a private lane there awaits the beachy, adorable 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. Watch TV while looking at the ocean through the expansive glass doors. In the evenings, stargaze and dream.
The house is set up so that each floor can be rented independently as a home. Each has their own private entrance and plenty of parking. Each level has a greatroom and kitchen overlooking the beach. Each has two bedrooms and 2 1/2 bath. It is a great way for small parties to enjoy the feeling of a 'real' beach home instead of a condo. This listing is for one level. If you need more space, please check out listing #155483. It will give you information about the whole house
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. Sit in the shady porches or out on the large balconies. Each level has a grill. If your budget is tight, cooking at home can save you more money a day than the cost of the house, so renting a house is a great way to save.
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.
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.
Things to do:
Within 2 blocks.-Restaurants (closest one sells newspapers), spa, shops, surf shop and surf lessons, miniature golf, bike/surfboard/kayak etc. rental, a pool owned by a restaurant where you can have a drink, listen to music and watch the kids swim.
Within 5 min- Pier, Public tennis courts, playgound, library, Alligator Farm, Amphitheater, Lighthouse, marinas, YMCA
Within 10 min- Beautiful old St Augustine- historic and romantic
Within 15 min- Large Outlet mall, swimming with the dolphins at Marineland, famous World Golf Village
Within 30-45 min- Daytona Races, Daytona Bike week, Jacksonville, TPC golf championship
Within 60-90 min- Orlando( Disney World, MGM etc.)
We want Casa del Sol to become your beach home that you return to as a yearly tradition. Where life slows down and you let your heart take the lead and give your brain a vacation. 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 onto our porch, please leave your troubles behind -relax and enjoy.

Best beach house rental I've had!
Best beach house rental I've had!
This was a fabulous place to stay! We shared the bottom section with our parents and there was more than enough space, everyone was comfortable. It was wonderful to have coffee on the deck while listening and watching the waves each morning. Having the availability to walk right to the beach was just what we wanted! Chuck and Marta were very helpful from start to finish in arrangements, directions, etc. We hope to come again and would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Recommended for: Families with teenagers, adventure seekers, age 55+, romantic getaway, girls getaway, sightseeing, people with disabilities, families with young children.
Owner response: Thank you, Kai and Becky, for letting others know how much you enjoyed staying on the beach level of our beach house. Although, the upper level has great long distance views, the beach level really makes you feel like you are on a private little beach somewhere in the islands. So glad you enjoyed a cup of coffee on that porch. We love doing that, too.

Review #5225269 Family Beach Reunion
Nine of us stayed at this location for a week so we rented both the top level and bottom level. With so many bathrooms we never had to wait to shower. The bedrooms were comfortable and attractive. Both floors had a washer and dryer. The kitchens on both levels were great. The top level had a beautiful view of the ocean and the bottom a private deck with room for everyone. The walk to the beach was easy and private. The beach was clean and wide. We had great weather with only one day of overcast on the day that we toured the close by city. We loved the quaint and interesting shops and attractions of Old St. Augustine. We chose this location because our parents live in Florida which made it easy for them to travel a shorter distance. We had plenty of local restaurants from which to choose so everyone was happy. The owner of the house was awesome. She responded quickly to our e-mails and phone calls prior to and after our stay. We always felt like we were special and welcomed. I would highly recommend this property for a great beach getaway house.

About the owner: Chuck and I are just a couple of kids pretending to be adults (Come on, I know you feel that way, too). Somehow, we have managed to fool our kids, grandkids and bosses. We are high school sweethearts who came from different backgrounds but had the same dreams. We believed in family, hard work and trying to make everyone's day just a little bit better. Casa Del Sol is the result of those dreams and beliefs. It not only makes the day better, it makes memories that last a lifetime.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Chuck was raised in a New Jersey Beach and I come from a caribbean island. When we saw this place, he said 'this reminds me of my beach in LBI and I said, 'this makes me feel like I am on the islands'. We knew that was our beach house.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Oceanfront with unbelievable views, non-driving beach, walking distance to restaurants and shops, near a historical city, quiet street, can accomodate large parties and still give them private spaces, all the comforts of home while experiencing true oceanfront living, economical- you can save $1000s on food by cooking in our fully equipped kitchens or grills instead of eating out. One of our favorite things to do: Around 5:00pm we take some chairs, drinks (plastic containers), cheese and crackers and sit at the water's edge until the sun goes down. Sometimes we call and order pizza and have it delivered to us on the beach. Paradise.
