Enjoy premiere accommodations in this large beach house which features two independent floors of living space and a huge rooftop deck, all within a 2-4 minute walk to the sand! Castillo del Sol welcomes you with two driveways for extra parking space, beautiful, tropical landscaping, and Spanish architecture. Inside, two floors each offer two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, full kitchens, and separate living areas and balconies, allowing large families and friends to spread out and enjoy privacy while vacationing together. Best of all is the 1000 square foot, lighted rooftop deck with pergola, and both dining and restful seating spaces where you can watch direct ocean-view sunrises with a cup of coffee in the mornings, and gather around with family in cool evenings for sunsets, stargazing and chatting about the adventures of the day. Soak up the warm sun rays in the afternoons on the rooftop, or on the beautiful beach, just a very short walk away. The walk-on access is located only one 250 ft. from the house, and drive-on access is one block down the street.

The house comes fully stocked with kitchen supplies so that you can cook "at home," along with soft bath and beach towels, and crisp bed linens. Castillo del Sol is located on breathtaking, wide St. Augustine beach. Healthy dunes and foliage create a perfect place for spotting all kinds of wildlife. Watch for gopher tortoises along the beautiful path to the beach and dolphins swimming offshore! Enjoy a number of fine restaurants, plenty of bars, and local attractions and parks all within a few minutes' drive.

Gorgeous Beach!
4/5 stars
We loved the beach and super close proximity this house offered! It's a wide, clean beach with plenty of room to play or chill. We were able to boogie board all day! The house was definitely clean and well-appointed. We had plenty of towels, dishes, cooking utensils, etc. Itrip was a great host, leaving notes on where to find items and even coupons. Our check-in and check-out were super smooth. If planning to stay here, you need to understand that the lower level and upper level are completely separate from each other- you can only access the upstairs by using the outside steps. This means 2 kitchens, though! It also has some curious design aspects and is ready for some updates (nothing major or causing problems for us). The rooftop deck is fantastic for both sunrises and sunsets! Overall, our family had a lovely vacation here and we look forward to returning to this area in the future!

It was the best!
5/5 stars
We had such a great time staying in this beautiful home away from home! It was great for our family of 9. The kids loved the fenced in front yard, We loved that we didn’t have to worry about them getting near the street. The fence was also great because our pup had a place to play as well. We loved the rooftop at night. We had everything we needed and customer service was fantastic. The location was perfect. Great access to the beach and restaurants. We would definitely book this home again!
- Kelly

It was a pleasure hosting you and we look forward to your next visit!

Great for 2 Families
5/5 stars
We had a great stay. The accommodations were great for two families with kids to be together but have separate space. We thought we’d enjoy the rooftop view the most but really the gated courtyard was our favorite hangout spot in the shade and with a little grassy spot for the kids to play. The beach access is so close (just wear shoes bc the sand is hot and sand burs!) I think this beach is one of FL’s best kept secrets- it felt like we had the place to ourselves with such wide open space and the little tide pools are perfect for the smaller kids that didn’t want to play in the waves. Check for rocket launch timing from Cape Canaveral- we were able to see one at night and in the morning. Such a cool thing to witness!
- Christine

Christine, thank you for your review and stay. We are so pleased you and your family enjoyed our home and all of its wonderful features, both inside and outside! The easy beach access is very helpful, especially with children, and the tide pools are so much fun! It was a pleasure hosting you and we would love to have you back!

5/5 stars
Absolutely beautiful home and location! Great place for a family vacation, especially on a holiday, quaint and quiet beach house, one block from the beach, which is pristine. You can drive on it or walk for enjoyment. Family friendly. Very close to downtown Saint Augustine. Had an amazing fun and stress-free trip. Highly recommended. Five star rating all the way! Plenty of parking.
