Deception, Disgust, Dissapointment. (TAKE EXTREME CAUTION)

  • 1 of 5

I would not trust any positive reviews you see about the Sandcastle house in Navarre, FL. We booked this house after reading the reviews and deciding that the perks outweighed the bad sides of this property. However, we were SORELY dissapointed with our experience. The first thing we saw was the outdoor furniture which was all overturned and obviously not well-kept. As we entered the house we immediately noticed a musty smell and a small amount of sand on the floor. We were all initially trying to be really positive so we discounted this and went on to see the rest of the house. The one honest thing advertised about this property is the number of rooms! We were pleasantly overwhelmed by the space this house offers. There would be more than enough room for our family of 12. I will admit that the master bedroom and bathroom was pretty nice. However, basically all of the other rooms had serious problems. We found a spider on one bed and cockroaches on the floor of almost every other room. The beds were made but they were dusty and seemed like no one had been in to tend to the house in weeks. We tried to make our selves comfortable but the first thing I wanted to do was look for the vaccuum to clean up all the roaches and the dust! If your guests have to deep clean the entire house before they move in to feel comfortable, you have already failed as a property owner. We were still willing to make it work until I opened the icemaker as I was exploring the kitchen & live cockroaches were running around all over the ice in the ice maker. We killed at least 6 live ones and gave up because there were too many. After that, we made the decision that the only way we would stay at the sandcastle house was if Ginger got a house cleaner and pest control personnel out to the property before the end of the day. We called and she was accomodating at first. She promised that she would do her best and we appreciated that. However, we then discovered dead mice under the furniture that looked like they had been there for months. That was the last straw, and we called and asked for our money back. Thankfully, we recieved it and we left the Sandcastle property as soon as we could. It was a disaster of a first day of vacation and caused a lot of chaos as we tried to find a last minute vacation home to accomodate our budget and 12 people for the entire week of Thanksgiving. It all worked out and we had a great vacation, but the Sandcastle house was a SHAM and we regret booking it.

Your Dream Vacation Rental Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented the Sandcastle Beach House each October for the last three years. We cannot say ENOUGH about how accommodating the rental company has been for our needs and in providing a WONDERFUL rental experience! The price is very reasonable, and house is beautiful...inside and out! It is ideal for weddings, receptions, family name it! We first used the Sandcastle in 2014 for a wedding reception because of the number of people it can accommodate and because of the large outdoor reception area and private pool. We absolutely love the fact that you have three different levels of living space, as well as balcony space, for different family/friend groups. You can spend as much time together or separately as you desire. The views are simply magnificent, as there are balcony and bedroom views of BOTH the Gulf and Sound sides of the water on each level of the house. The cleanliness of the home has been impeccable each time we have stayed. Everything cooking utensil you can imagine is fully stocked in the kitchen, and there are plenty of clean and freshly laundered linens for all of the bedrooms and bathrooms. The elevator is a life saver, as we have guests who need the access. The cleaning company also leaves lots of extra touches, such as large bottles of shampoo/conditioner as well as other specialty guest toiletries. All of our family looks forward to what has become an annual gathering, and it is because of the superior customer service we receive, year after year. Ginger is always in touch to assist with any requests or questions, and she takes a genuine interest in all of her guests. Since we live in the Northwest Florida area, we are often in Navarre Beach, at the beach access directly across the street from the Sandcastle...did we mention there is a GREAT beach access directly across the street and large public parking lot right next to the Sandcastle that is perfect for guest parking? You can't find those two so conveniently located at any other beach house rental of this size! We can personally share that we see the Sandcastle Beach House rented on a regular basis all year long, and all of the people we see, from renters to professional event planners, are extremely complimentary and happy with the Sandcastle Beach Rental and receive the same level of service that we do.

As for our future plans, we cannot wait until next October! The Sandcastle Beach House is paradise found for us!

Pictures very deceiving, house needs deep cleaning

  • 2 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the sandcastle...perfect spot, enough room for big families, and also having a private pool was great!! However, the house had many can tell the upkeep of the house is not being taken care of, which is sad because it has so much to offer. The top surface cleaning was good, beds where clean and comfy the kitchen was nicely stocked with plenty of dish wear/cook wear. Plenty of towels. Nice having 2 laundry areas!! needs a really good deep cleaning!! All the air vent had several layers of dust build up and mold, under furniture had dust and stuff that had been dropped like hair ties, etc under things. Some of the Windows had orange foam spray around the seals, bad build up in the doors. The blinds wear dirty. Cockroaches in the kitchen cabinets. Bathroom showers panels seal chipping away and causing panels to be loose. The outside of the home is really showing its wear! The decking has severe wear to the point wood chipping/falling apart....The outdoor kitchen....the grill doesn't work, so placed in front of the broken grill was just a regular outdoor grill...junky looking. Be careful about walking around the property...trash all over, sand around the fence and pool area filled with debris...landscaping around pool dying...had a few issues with the pool that someone had to come out and fix....and at night watch out for some of the largest cockroaches we have ever seen outside around kitchen/covered patio...couldn't tell you how many we killed while hanging out down there during the week!! This house from pictures is stunning but in person is a shame.. If someone would just take the time and put a little tlc into it, it would be a beautiful place!!

Owner's Response: Jamie, I’m very surprised to hear your comments after our company worked so hard to accommodate your group. We immediately sent the pool company to clean up after a storm. He even came back an extra time on Saturday night to fix the water fountain. We had our cleaners return to clean the air vents and blinds at your request. The house is on a regular pest control program, and we recently increased their number of visits. The owner works very hard to make improvements during the off season and recently painted the entire outside and inside of the home. She has plans to replace some of the windows as well. This is one of the largest homes on Navarre Beach and the owner is very proud to offer it as a top rental for families to enjoy time together with beautiful beach views and a private pool.

Amazing place for our wedding!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for 10 days for our wedding and honeymoon! There was plenty of room for our children and extended family for stay and have their own space. The pool and dowstairs patio area were amazing except that the grill did not work. There were some cosmetic things that needed work and the elevator was incredibly slow but other than that everything was perfect! We paid way less for this place than all of us would have paid at a hotel and we had so much space of our own! Well worth it! The kids continue to ask when we are going back to the house in Florida :) hopefully someday we will return!

Navarre Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved renting this beautiful beach house! It is literally just right across from the ocean and you know immediately which one it is as you drive up to the property due to the large size of it. I almost didn't rent this because it wasn't ocean front, but don't let that stop you because its directly across from the ocean.

We rented this with another family and the sleeping arrangements worked out perfectly for our large group. My husband recently had ankle surgery, so he was able to use the elevator with no problems getting around.

We will definitely be coming back to Navarre and staying here. The beaches are calm, peaceful and have the prettiest sand around.

Ginger was in constant communication and we had no problems getting in touch with her when we needed to. We met Ann and loved her! She stopped by to bring supplies for the next guest and was there to answer questions regarding the house and Navarre. If we decide to buy a vacation home, I know who to call!

Thank you Ann and Ginger for making our Spring break perfect!

Cannot wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house in July 2014 and we invited my parents/siblings/their kids and his parents/siblings... There were only 13 of us there, but having both our families in the same house for a week was such a treat. Everyone (got along) had their own space/rooms/bathrooms, we were able to be close, but we were not uncomfortable.

We had a small problem (user error/we didn't know how to use it) working the elevator once or twice, but someone came over quickly and helped us.

We have been talking about this house and this trip (was such a great vacation) for a whole year, we are planning to come back summer 2016!!
