Holiday Haven

  • 5 of 5

This is my third visit to this beautifully, clean well maintained condo. it is just like being at home with all the amenities except for the views! Wether you sit by the pool, down on the beach or on the balcony soaking up the sun it was very relaxing. We could not have asked for better weather.

The condo was also equipped with Internet and free long distance to Canada.

We tried out some new restaurants all within walking distance and they were excellent. There is a new ice cream parlour across the street with too many flavours to choose from.

We look forward to returning again next year to escape the cold winter.

Great Trip!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived we immediately saw the Ocean and the sun was shining. Amazing view and very clean living area. Very close to many stores and restaurants. The beach is fantastic and you can walk for miles. If fishing is your thing there are many areas where you can try to catch baby shark and other types of fish.

The sand at the beach is very soft and is very clean as well. We spent quite a bit of time at the condo pool and in the hot tub as well. Both were very clean as well. We also played a little bit of ping pong and fooz ball which was a lot of fun.

Good size kitchen with a dishwasher. Laundry is also directly in the condo as well which was super convenient.

Overall it was a spectacular trip. I will definitely be coming back here.

Owner's Response: Bill, I am glad that you had a great time here at SC1. It is very calming to walk the clean beaches and see guests fishing along the gulf and kids jumping in and out of those aqua blue waters. We hope that with your next visit you will be able to stay longer. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you again. Regards, Elaine

Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was worth the money! We were right in the beach and the sunsets were amazing. We walked to restaurants and drove to St.John's pass which was busy with shops and restaurants to choose from. Clearwater was only minutes away where we visited Pier 60. We would come back for another visit in Indian Shores.

Fully Equipped Kitchen

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed this condo. It is in a great location and very nicely renovated and decorated. We will definitely be back. We have stayed at other places and this was by far the best setup. Loved being on the 5th floor.

Perfect Two Weeks in Sunny Florida

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have vacationed in this area annually for 30 years. This, however, was our first time staying at Sand Castle I and we WILL definitely be back! VERY pleased with the condo , beautifully decorated and clean. Owners and rental agents were extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with when we had and issue with the WiFi (which was quickly resolved). Loved having the master bedroom patio doors to the balcony and waking up to that beautiful beach gulf view. The washer/dryer in the condo was very handy. Pool was the perfect temperature as was the hot tub. Walked several miles on the beach every morning, enjoyed the pool/hot tub every afternoon and ate at all our favorite restaurants every night... (Salt Rock Grill, Guppys and PJ's Oyster Bar). Had a fantastic stay... hated to leave. :(

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review. It is such a relaxing moment when you wake up and see the auqa blue waters from your room. I hope you were able to find the time to relax on the balcony and watch the Dolphins swim close to shore. I am glad you found the condo accommodating as we strive to have all the ammenties of home. Please keep us in mind again for your future travels. Regards, Elaine

Wonderful family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I decided to vacation together in Florida for a reunion. We rented this condo and were thoroughly satisfied. The unit was clean, sufficiently stocked, and comfortable. Highly recommend. We will look for this unit next year if we decide to make this an annual gathering.
