Very comfortable and well appointed
My family stayed at the Sandcastle over Christmas and through New Year's. We found the house to be very comfortable with the exception of some of the beds that really could use new mattresses. We appreciated the well-equipped kitchen. The deck is awesome with plenty of seating!
Only downside (besides some of the mattresses!) was that there is no direct beach access but, since the house is right next to a parking area, it's not a big deal.
We'd definitely stay at the Sandcastle again if the opportunity arises!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Sand Castle. We will let the owners know about your comments concerning some of the mattresses. There is direct access to the beach from the house, but no walkover like there is right next door as you referenced. We appreciate your feedback and hope that you are able to come back!
Great house for our family and we loved the beach. Not crowded and lots of shells😎
So glad you guys had a great time! Hope to see you again soon! -Mermaid Mansions Vacation Rentals
I can not thank everyone at mermaid mansions beach rentals. They saved my daughters wedding day.. I found out about this place through Mike Oliver, he set the beach up for the wedding. John at mermaid mansions was awesome. This place is everything you would expect ... CLEAN, NICE, ROOMY , and the view was awesome. John was so accommodating and paid attention to every detail . My family cannot thank him enough. Our stay after the wedding was very relaxed and comfortable. If you rent this place you will not be disappointed . We will definitely rent from mermaid mansions again. Sincerely , The Allen Family
Thanks for the wonderful comments Lynn! We were so happy to be able to accommodate your family. Hope to see you and everyone else again soon!
Such a Wonderful Vacation!
This was a once-in-a-lifetime vacation for our family. We took Mom and her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. The group ranged in age from 2 to 87. This house was just right for all of us! On arriving, the most common comment was, "This is the most beautiful beach we've ever seen!". Jackie and her team were very helpful with all our plans and questions. Rent-a-Center in Milton helped customize our stay by delivering and picking up a lift chair and recliner. Mom was able to have a room for herself, but with someone very close by, and had easy access to the kitchen and living areas and the deck. She was able to watch the youngest children play at her feet in a small pool on the deck and watch them having fun on the beach. Inside, her lift chair was positioned so she could see the ocean all the time, so relaxing for her! The common area was terrific for all our meals and gathering times. The deck was used by someone almost all the time. We all made use of the easy access to the beach multiple times a day. We were able to get to everything we needed for supplies within 15 minutes and had day trips to Pensacola and Destin that took no more than 45 minutes. We HIGHLY recommend this property and Jackie and her team!
Great Family Vacation Spot
Our two adult children and their spouses, three of our teen-aged grandchildren, my husband, and I had a wonderful week here. The weather was not always accommodating, so It was especially nice to have the beautiful view along the entire wall of the common living area. We did have enough sunny days to satisfy our sun-worshipers, and we enjoyed walking on the beach in the rain on the days that were not so sunny. During the storms we stayed inside enjoying the open view of the gulf and nature's display of power as we spent time chatting, eating, reading, and playing games. We loved the location - private but with access to some amenities. We would have liked to have a brochure or some printed information about the area. We had trouble connecting to the Wi-fi, so we spent an inordinate amount of time (and some frustration) finding something to do and somewhere to go for our grandson's birthday. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for meal preparation; the house was clean and comfortable. Jackie was easy to work with - very cooperative and timely while we were making arrangements for the rental. I am filing the information about this trip with expectations of returning for another restful week.
WOW! What a beautiful time at The Sandcastle!
My daughter got married here at the sandcastle and everything was fantastic! The house was perfect for us, the beach of course is amazing! Thank you so much Jackie! I will definitely be back!
