                                                              Great location!

                                                              We enjoyed our stay overall at Sandcastle I. The unit was perfect for the 4 of us, was well stocked with everything you would need and very “homey” feeling. The view was beautiful and the sunsets were amazing! The owner of the condo, Helen, was very helpful with any questions we had. We highly recommend TJ’s Restaurant about a 5 minute drive north and Original Pizza about a 2 minute drive south, delicious meals. Hope to return again.

                                                              Perfect location - quiet area on the gulf coast

                                                              Joseph M.

                                                              This condo was perfect for my family of 4. Son and daughter had their own rooms. Master bedroom has sliding door to balcony that we left open most nights to hear the waves coming ashore. Gorgeous view of sunset from balcony. Quiet area on Gulf Blvd compared to further south. 5 good seafood restaurants within walking distance ( 1 mile) and a bakery for fresh donuts. Highly recommend renting a boat across the street and cruising the intercoastal for an afternoon of sun and fun looking at houses. We saw several dolphins as well!

                                                              As always... an amazing stay!

                                                              Our 3rd stay in this bright, cheery condo. Our kids love it here (ages 7, 11, 14). Unit is clean, well stocked, and the view of the Gulf is second to no one. The only bad part is when vacation is over and you have to leave. :)

                                                              Second Trip Didn't Disappoint!!

                                                              Laura W.

                                                              This was the second time I've stayed in Helen's unit. My family and I enjoyed it just as much as the first time, if not more! We had everything we needed, the unit was clean and comfortable, and Helen is so easy to work with. We love the area, beach, pool and the unit. We can't wait for our next trip!

                                                              Great Girls Trip!

                                                              Becky H.Cartersville, GA

                                                              We love this unit. Just enjoyed a girls trip to the beach. There were 6 of us and the unit has plenty of room for everyone. The beds are very comfortable and lots of seating in the living room. Nicely updated kitchen, even had a crock pot and blender. Helen is easy to deal with and very helpful. The grounds at this condo are well maintained and lovely.

                                                              Would Definitely Stay Here Again!

                                                              The Condo:

                                                              Clean, comfortable, well stocked with essentials such as dishes, silverware, wine glasses, blender, ect. BEAUTIFUL View of the Sandy beach, Gulf of Mexico, dolfins swimming by in the morning. Comfortably slept 6 of us. Condo even supplied beach chairs & fishing gear! Parking for 2 vehicles was not a problem.

                                                              The Area:

                                                              My daughter & I caught several fish from the beach! During our stay, we befriended a large crane (bird) who would follow us along the beach every day. The ocean water was approx. 76 degrees, & if you like collecting shells, this beach is amazing! The beach itself was so clean, & never crowded. Two restaurants within walking distance, we're amazing! They were "Crabby Bills" & "Slyce Pizza". Also, there is a retro candy & ice cream place in that same area, that should also be visited.

                                                              The Customer Service:

                                                              Great customer service. Everything from booking the condo to checking -out was streamlined & hassle free. Helen was only a phone call away if you had a question.


                                                              Would Definitely stay again! A great condo at a great value!! Hated to leave!!!
