We loved our stay!!! Beautiful home, beautiful neighborhood, beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent stay! Home was clean and spacious! Felt safe being in a gated community! Good location to the beach and only steps away from the community pool!

Our only suggestions would be to add more wash cloths (weren’t enough) and a keurig machine (the coffee pot was fine, just prefer the ease of a keurig)

Thank you for the amazing spring break! We will definitely stay here again!

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The Sandcastle was an amazing beach house. Very clean and spacious. I liked that the upstairs bedrooms had their own bathrooms. It’s a good house for two families due to bedrooms being on both levels of the house. The walk to the beach and pools is easy. The location of the neighborhood is nice too. You can play on the beach, snorkel And fish at the jetty, etc. plus it’s close to restaurants and shops. My only complaints are minor. It took a long time to figure out the living room tv with several remotes, so a quick set of directions would be great. There were also a few minor maintenance issues. We didn’t call about them because I didn’t want to spend my vacation waiting on workers to come to the house. I’d definitely stay at this house again.
