About Raquel Sauls

I have lived in the Panama City Beach for over 30 years, and own resort retail stores in the area, called Shipwreck Ltd., and Shipwreck Shirts. In fact, the store in the Carillon Downtown market place is my store. I travel extensively , purchasing items for my stores, and in the winter I spend considerable time in Maui, Hawaii.

Raquel Sauls purchased this house in 2003

Why Raquel Sauls chose Laguna Beach

I purchased the land , and had the home custom built to my specifications. Carillon Beach is one of the worlds most beautiful communities, with a mile of sugar white beaches, beautiful landscaping, secure and quiet. There is nothing quite like watching the beautiful sunsets from your own living room and deck! It is also centrally located to restaurants and entertainment in the area, only minutes from other beach communities along hwy 30-A, Destin, and Panama city beach

Fantastic Family Vacation Week at Casa del Mare - Superb!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been vacationing at Carillon Beach for 14 years and this year by far was our greatest experience. There are not enough wonderful words to describe Jim Bradley's home, Casa del Mare. The grandchildren and adults, as well, felt so at home.

The house is beautifully and ornately decorated and yet extremely comfortable.

Everything any one needs is provided. Just pack your bags and bring in the groceries and you're all set. Normally we go out to dinner several nights each week, but this stay no one wanted to we had all our meals in house.

Although we visit Carillon's three pools each year we spent most of our time at the beach because of the convenience of the gulf and playing family games beachside.

Raquel Sauls with VRBO took care of all arrangements and made registration

and check-in and departure so easy. She checked with us during our stay to make sure all was going to our satisfaction.

There was construction going on next door and Raquel notified us concerning the construction prior to our arrival, but we chose to take the chance. We were a bit

worried about the possible noise, but were greatly surprised that we didn't notice as much as we thought we would. The noise was no problem and so thankful we took

the chance because we would have missed a great experience.

Jim Bradley, the owner, made sure we were comfortable and had any and everything

we needed. He is hands on and so easy to work with. The maintenance and cleanliness of Casa del Mare was impeccable. We would certainly want to visit again.

Beautiful house right on the beach! We had 13 staying there and it was perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girl cousin’s weekend at Casa Del Mar with 13 of the 15 of us staying there. We had such a great time. The house was great, the beds incredibly comfortable, the bathrooms were large and the kitchen was very well equipped. Probably my favorite thing was that there are no bedrooms on the main floor so early risers and night owls could visit without disturbing those sleeping. There was so much room inside and on the lovely 2 porches overlooking the Gulf that you could easily converse with 2-3 people and really visit! We loved this place! Raquel was so helpful and told me everything I needed to know to make it an easy stress-free weekend for the one trying to organize family coming from all directions!! We would DEFINITELY stay again! Hopefully next year!!

Amazing house on best beachfront in Panama!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Words and pictures don't do this palace justice! Four families with kids ranging from 5-15 stayed here for a week during our national dance competition. We were the envy of our large dance group from Oklahoma! Everyone felt cozy and right at home in this amazingly beautiful mansion on the beach with unmatched decor, amenities, and comforts. Breathtaking views are found right out the back door with expansive covered patios, ample deck chairs, and loungers on two levels, not to mention the perfectly situated hammock off the master suite. While many beaches around Panama City are crowded with throngs of people, this beach was so sparsely populated that we thought it was private! We were pleasantly surprised to find surf boards, boogie boards, beach chairs, etc., in storage for our personal pleasure, as well! All previous comments about the private gated community being safe and secure are totally accurate, as well. We had no qualms with our kids walking to the candy shop or biking around the quaint streets. Breathtaking views and landscaping abound. And when Tropical Storm Debby arrived for the last few days of our trip, the kids were completely satisfied with the wide open, cozy spaces and entertainment options throughout the house. Perfectly situated between Panama City and Destin, this location provided the perfect starting point for trips to both major tourist destinations and all the quaint seaside hamlets in between (like Rosemary Beach, Seaside, Watercolor, Santa Rosa Beach and Grayton Beach). The ladies found days worth of amazing shopping venues, while the dads and kids found plenty of deep sea fishing, snorkeling, parasailing, etc., all within a short drive. The extracurricular activities paled in comparison, though, to the lazy, restful times spent lounging around the house and on the beach out our back door. The rental price paid was well worth the pampered relaxation that welcomed us home each day. From total zen to extreme play, let Jim and his crew pamper you in luxury and give your family memories that will last a lifetime! We will definitely be back!

Perfect Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

Jim has the most beautiful home. Seven ladies enjoyed the life of luxury and serenity as we sat on the porches and talked until the sun was long gone. The pictures of the home really did not show how beautiful the home really was. The custom paint and furnishings were far beyond our expectations and everything we needed was there for our use. There was even an elevator so we did not have to carry our baggage up to the third floor.The gated community was perfect for afternoon walks or bike rides and the pool was only a few doors away. We loved the cozy village of Carillon and we felt so safe there, The home is close to shopping, grocery and restaurants but we were so in love with the home we just wanted to stay there and frolic on the beach. Thanks for a great stay. We have told so many people about your home and strongly recommend your place to everyone we see. We can't wait to come back next time.

We took 2 families with a total of 6 children. The house was absolutely amazing! This pictures do not do it justice!! Jim met us there and gave us a tour. We also ran into him at the store he owns. I can not say enough about how welcome we felt. He made us feel like guests in his home (which is pretty much the truth!!). The house is exquisite with breath taking views. The community that it is located in makes you feel as though you have stepped back in time. It is gated so we felt very safe. Our children rode their bikes (and some we rented from Jim's store!) with no worries! The pools are wonderful, especially the one that is right on the beach! Our hope is to make this our destination every summer. If you are looking for a great place to relax, this is it...just save us a week each summer!!
