About the property

Family friendly home

This is the home for very large family vacations to the beach. 7 bedrooms, 7-1/2 bathrooms. 5 bedrooms, with KING SIZE BEDS, face the beach and open up to porches and balcony . All bedrooms have their own private baths. There are two Master Bedrooms: 1 Master Suite on the top floor and 1 Master Suite on the first floor, both have whirlpool bath tubs and separate walk-in showers and are wheelchair accessible. There are two Bunk Bedrooms, one on each floor, with 4 FULL SIZE BUNK BEDS in each.

The house has 8 flat screen SMART TVs. Every bedroom has it's own TV, so feel free to stream a movie and relax. The Great Room has a 55" curved-screen SMART Samsung TV for family time.

The Dining Room table seats 20, so large groups can break bread together. The Kitchen island seats 4, within feet of the dining table. If you still need more seating for meals, there is an 8-foot picnic table on the adjoining porch, aligned with the inside dining table.

The Kitchen is VERY WELL STOCKED with everything you should need to prepare just about any type meal, including a jar spice rack. The appliances include a French-door refrigerator; a built-in ice maker, that will make 35 pounds of ice every 24 hours; a wonderful glass top stove, with two ovens and five burners; a microwave oven; double sink, with garbage disposal; 2 DISHWASHERS; and pantry. A second REFRIGERATOR is conveniently located in the adjoining Utility Room. Also for your convenience 3 coffee pots (one is a Keurig), 2 (4 slice) toasters, 2 blenders, a toaster oven, a crock pot, a large counter top mixer, a hand mixer and can opener have been provided.

To tantalize your taste buds, an incredible 24" by 48" gas griddle is located on the balcony just off the Dining Room, for cooking pancakes, bacon, sausage, fried eggs, burgers, hot dogs and steaks!

The Great Room is conducive to intimate gatherings for large groups in front of massive books and treasures on the bookshelves and a beautiful fireplace!

For teens who want a place to congregate there is a huge built-in picnic table under the house. Families will enjoy this space for charcoal grilling, craw fish boils and cooler summer breezes. (DO NOT PUT ASHES IN THE SAND - wait until the next day when they are cool and put them in the trash bag).

On the huge porch off the bedrooms, you can open your double French doors and retreat to your own little corner of paradise. There are wicker group settings for four people or beautiful lounge chairs to catch the rays! Mornings or evenings you will make memories that will remain with you forever. Just imagine coffee or drinks and God's perfect sunrise or sunset ingrained in your mind forever!

If you're going to the beach, there are beach chairs and beach towels and a 10 x 20 beach tent so you won't get badly sunburned. The boardwalk is magnificent and there is a sitting area halfway down with built-in benches, so you can be closer to the water at sunrise or sunset.

An interior elevator is provided for your convenience in transporting groceries and luggage, as well as anyone with mobility challenges; however please do not allow children to use it - as it is not a toy. There is a washer and dryer for light washing and to clean beach towels for the next guests.

The top floor Bunk Room has a wonderful game table for kids to play cards or board games. The Great Room also has one coffee table that opens to make a huge game table.

Come to the beach for a visit to paradise You'll think you've died and gone straight to Heaven!!!!

Blessings galore,

SUSAN

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we could have asked for and more! The view is amazing! The location is very family friendly. It was like we had the beach to ourselves! Each room had their own bathroom and access to the balcony (the bunk rooms did not have balcony access). There was no “fighting” over rooms because they were all great. The house had all the amenities you need and more. Plenty of kitchen appliances and plates/silverware/etc for a large group. There were beach toys, towels, and chairs. The boardwalk to the ocean had a shower to rinse off with hot water!! The house also has an elevator so my handicapped parents could get to all levels of the house. We will definitely be coming back. The owner was so sweet and accommodating that I could not recommend her more!!

Beautiful Location and Property, Very Kind People

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for an extended family vacation. We had 20 people, including 5 couples and 10 children. The property was family and kid friendly, and everyone of every age (64 down to 2) was very comfortable and enjoyed themselves. The property was meticulously clean, organized, and everything was very nice. We cooked all but 1 meal for the week and had no problems with supplies or space. The owners were extremely kind and responded immediately to all of our questions, and took care of concerns immediately. The location and beach were private and we felt safe and relaxed. We accidentally left a special item, (a comfort baby blanket) and when we realized that we did, we texted the owner and the next morning the cleaning service had our item sent back to us. Thank you so much for going above and beyond, we really appreciate it. We would love to stay again, and are planning to do so.

Amazing, Awesome, Super Cool, but....

  • 5 of 5

I am hesitant to share my raving review because I am afraid our SECRET beach place will get too popular...yes you can enjoy the Gulf Coast without crowds if you know what we know. Contact Jerry and Susan ( BEST VRBO HOSTS IN THE SOUTH) for the most awesome beach experience you will ever have. I love the south, Alabama and the people. This home is beyond perfect...just don't take my spot!!!! Coach V. from Iowa!

This home was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything that we needed and so much more. We loved all the space, especially the fact that most had a king sized bed, own bathroom and their room looked out on the ocean. The easy access the beach was one of the best parts. Since one of us broke their foot shortly before the trip, the walkway from the house to the beach made it perfect for getting close to the ocean without having to walk through to much sand, and with the collapsible wagon we brought along it made it easy to take anything we needed along with us. Jerry was great to work with and provided great recommendations, and was quick to handle issues we had. We would highly recommend, and can't wait to come back again.

A Beautiful home with a spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

Sand Castles III is the perfect home for a large family gathering. Each room has its own private bath and access to a deck. The home is beautifully decorated. The whole house very well maintained and spotless. The elevator is a great help to those have difficulty with stairs, and it allowed all members of our family to visit all levels of the house with ease. The kitchen is very open and the double dishwashers, ovens, and refrigerators are a great asset when cooking for a large crowd. The huge dining table allowed us to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner together as a family. We are already planning our next visit!
