Kudos from recent guests:
'Thank you for letting us use your wonderful home. It was just what we were looking for...close to a relaxing beach, but not too far from everything else. We had a great time and could not have asked for anything else.' Janet, Vincent, Rosemarie, Nathan, Stephanie, Natalie, and Grandma Janet

'Our entire family is here from Wisconsin and it is our second time back here to Indian Shores. The house is beautiful, very nicely furnished - the palm tree is a very nice touch! We thank you for opening your home up to others to share the beauty, not just of the home, but of the entire experience - the view from the balcony is breath taking itself - where you are up here looking out over the water, either at people on the beach, jet skiing - or the sunset. It all just leaves an imprint in your thoughts and memories. We were even able to sit on the comforts of our own balcony and watch all the spectacular fireworks up and down the beach - and the best part - No Crowds! It was awesome. Thanks again for a truly memorable vacation for all to remember for a long time, or at least until next year.' Dan, Barb, Keven, Kim John, Karla, Tony, and Sarah

'I have been coming to Sand Castle since I was 8 years old. Every trip has had a special memory with my family. This trip is especially memorable because we have come with our daughter and she had a wonderful holiday. She loved playing in the sand and finding shells, and watching the pelicans and boats from the balcony. Your home by the sea is beautiful and we were very lucky to stay in your home.' Mike, Jan, Keirstin, Liz & Michael

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: I live in the Tampa Bay Beaches area since 1960 and enjoy renting out my condos to vacationers. I have 2 kids in school.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sandcastle II:
                  I grew up in this area and have spent most of my life here. I have done a lot of traveling and think that our beaches combined with the Tampa Bay area have much to offer anyone.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  I love to relax on my balcony in the mornings with my coffee and enjoy the beautiful sunsets in the evening. The beach is never crowded, however the selection of great restaurants are endless. There are also great boating opportunities. My kids love the pool and beach and never get tired of coming.
