Sandbox is the perfect getaway
Sandbox is the perfect getaway
As described, the apartment was bright and full of light! My boyfriend and I stayed here over labor day weekend and had a great time. The apartment was larger than I expected and was stocked with all the necessities including beach towels, beach umbrellas and beach chairs. It is a short stroll to the beach and near by restaurants...wish we could have stayed longer! Looking forward to making a trip back!

Visited 4th of July Week
Visited 4th of July Week
The location of the property, and having a fenced back yard, was great! There was nothing fancy about the place, but it had all of the necessities. The bed was not comfortable at all and the bedding was less than acceptable. It did not appear that the floors had been cleaned before we arrived, and the grill had not be cleaned out. I think a few updates would really help! It was an easy stroll to be beach on the gulf side. The fireworks on the 4th of July were spectacular. We have great food at the nearby Wanna Wanna Beach Bar. There is a convenience store right next door and an IGA just down the main road. The neighborhood is quiet and calm, even on busy days.

Owner response: Thank you for taking the time to send us a review. We are sorry that you were not happy with the unit. We try to make sure that it is the way we would want it if we were on vacation as this is also our "family" unit we all stay in. We would like to address a number of your comments. Of all the people who have slept on that bed(a queen size pillow top) including my husband and I, you are the first person who has ever complained about it. The bedding that you referred to was purchased the month of April 2013(sheets, shams & comforter) and we have closely inspected them since your comment and can not find any spots, tears, etc., so we are not sure what was "less than acceptable". The floors are always swept, vacuumed and/or mopped in between each and every guest. Pat, who lives in the beach house and cleans the units may have overlooked the grill since the inside of the units are her priority. Lots of guests never use them and she may not have realized the ones prior to you apparently did. This spring, that flat was deep cleaned, pillow top queen bed installed, ceilings and walls repainted, new living room deck installed, new patio furniture purchased, bedroom a/c refurbished, new cd/radio purchased, the internet/wifi upgraded with new equipment, along with many, many, other items as well. The entire exterior of the house was: resided with new Hardy siding, new windows installed, and totally repainted. Additionally 2 brand new a/c systems were installed. It feels like the house as a whole is under constant renovation every year. Our number one goal is to make our guests' stay a wonderful, and memorable experience. Addressing any concerns or needs as soon as they are made known is a top priority. Unfortunately, in this case we were not able to address those until after your stay with us. Please accept our sincere apologies that your stay was not what you expected. Hopefully, we may earn your future travel stay to the island once more. Sincerely, The Sandbox family.
Thank you for everything the condo was exactly what the pictures looked like. It was very clean and I liked having the towels, dishes, and grill. The condo is really close to the beach which was a huge plus and close to many restaurants! With 3 kids and 3 adults we all slept great!! I will be back again at this condo next time!
