Delightful oceanfront vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our fantastic time at Summerplace. I have always fantasized about being able to take a family vacation at a an amazing house on the ocean and my dream has come true. We were lucky to have wonderful weather and were able to enjoy the beach every day but even if it was raining, there is a walk around deck where you can sit and relax and immerse yourself in the view and be lulled to the sound of the ocean waves. The house has a lot of rooms and private spaces so you can have alone time but there is plenty of room for everyone to be together as well. There are enough plates, silverware, glasses,cooking utensils, etc for a large group and the pantry is well stocked and labeled with various and sundry items that may come in useful. The beach closet has ample beach chairs, umbrellas. sand toys, boogie boards, etc. for all kinds of fun. I would highly recommend staying here no matter the make up of your group.

We loved this house

  • 5 of 5

Sandcastle was exactly what we were hoping for. The house was clean, spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to host a dinner party and a luncheon for guests. There were plenty of beach towels and other linens. Plenty of beach toys and chairs in great condition. The grill was in very good condition and was put to use many times. In other reviews I was uncertain whether there was direct beach access so I want to clear that up, this house does have its own staircase to the beach just a few steps from the downstairs door. Loved watching the sunrise with my coffee every morning on the deck. I wasn't sure if the kids would be bored so I planned some day trips but we ended up just staying right here and were perfectly content. Evenings were spent playing on the ping pong tables or just lounging on the comfortable couches watching tv. The days of playing in the waves made for early bedtimes.. Our friends from Boca Raton took down the VRBO number to plan a family gathering, they loved the house that much too. I can't wait to come back.

LOVED IT

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house in mid-March and enjoyed our stay immensely. The house is quite relaxing and the view is unreal. Nothing felt better than sitting on the deck in the morning, drinking a coffee, watching the sun come up and listening to the waves crashing. I got sunburned...but that's my fault. :-)

A memorable family vacation at Sand Castle

  • 5 of 5

Our large family of 9 adults and 2 children traveled to Vero Beach from Maryland, Virginia, Massachusetts and Peru to celebrate Grandpa's 95th birthday in mid-Feb. What a super decision we made to rent this spacious and lovely oceanfront home that afforded us the comfort of socializing with Grandpa in a relaxing environment and the privacy of 4 separate bedrooms with very comfortable beds for sleeping at night! The ocean view is amazing, and the semi-private sandy beach is just steps away from the wrap-around deck. The house is artistically decorated and thoughtfully outfitted with anything you could possible need or want: cable TV, DVDs, books, board games, a welcoming bottle of wine on the bar, lots of dishes, cooking utensils, spices, coffee pot and coffee, paper towels and TP, cleaning products, laundry soap and dryer sheets, bath soap, shampoo, hair dryers, tons of bath and beach towels, beach chairs & toys, fishing rods, water shoes, and even boxes of sparklers! The kids loved playing ping pong and chess, and they walked on the beach a short way to the Disney Resort for the Saturday morning Character Breakfast. We shopped at the nearby Publix grocery and cooked all our meals at home except for Grandpa's birthday dinner at the Italian Grill. Sand Castle's owner could not have been more gracious and responsive to our questions. We would definitely return to stay at this very comfortable home again. Thank you, Valerie, for a wonderful family vacation that we shall remember for many years to come!

We keep coming back to Sandcastle

  • 5 of 5

Another great, relaxing time spent at this beautiful, fun beach house. This was our 5th time staying here and it just keeps getting better. Plenty of room. Comfortable beds and couches and chairs. All you need are your clothes and food. This home offers everything. Loved the new floor in basement and the other upgrades. If you want to fall asleep listening to the ocean waves, then this is your house. We love sitting on the deck most days and evenings. Grilling out listening to the ocean. The owners are so easy to work with take great care of this home. The Summerplace area is so quiet and laid back. I can't say enough about this great place. The beach is literally 20 steps away, onto a secluded beach. Plenty of parking as we take 2 bass boats and fish at Stickmarsh and we have plenty of room for parking. Can't wait to be back again next year!

Amazing Comfortable Clean Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was my families second stay during Christmas/New Years at this wonderful beach house. The house is extremely clean and comfortable, beds are so comfortable, and you can hear the ocean waves put you to sleep. The new stairs down to the beach was a nice addition. The large deck is so relaxing, as we spent all of our days and late evenings just sitting, enjoying the sounds of the ocean. The owners of this house are so extremely nice and easy to work with. This house is so welcoming and fun, and has everything and more than anyone needs. All you need to do is bring your clothes and food, the house has the rest. We enjoyed the ping pong table and board games. The house is decorated with some beautiful artwork as well. I just can't express enough how much I enjoy this beach house, but mostly because it is just so comfortable and relaxing. Don't look any further because this is your dream vacation home at the beach. Enjoy! Can't wait to return as soon as I can!!
