I considered probably every rental home from Orange Beach to Fort Morgan looking for the perfect house for our family vacation. Castle in the Sand West is absolutely perfect! My family of 9 adults and 3 toddlers (4 generations) had the best trip ever. The house is gorgeous. The owner has thought of everything. I never realized how great having two dishwashers and 2 refrigerators would be! The decorating is so lovely and clearly no expense was spared when this house was designed and built. I can't say enough. Having a heated pool (October) was fantastic especially for the little ones when they got tired of the sand. The house is very close to the beach with just a short boardwalk.This worked out great for all the group especially the oldest and youngest in the group. We used the grill several times and really didn't feel the need to go out to dinner. Although this is a duplex, the house and outdoor space has been designed in such a way as to make it as private as possible. The owner was so easy to work with and I am already planning our next visit. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home.

Exceeded expectations and more!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in March with 4 families (11 kids ages 2-10). This house exceeded all expectations we could have had. Being right on the beach was easy for all of us and the pool was perfect for the kids! The kitchen was well equipped for all meals and the huge dining room table allowed us to all eat at the same time. There was plenty of space for all of us and we never felt on top of each other. We hardly even noticed there was another side to the house! We've already recommended Castle in the Sand to many friends and have even booked our next trip!

Amazing trip!

  • 5 of 5

My family and close family friends stayed at Castle West, and we had a ball! Great view of the gulf, large spacious home with beautiful decor, comfy bedding and a large kitchen stocked with all the necessities! Loved pouring a cup of coffee and venturing out on the private balconies to watch the waves roll in. We enjoyed the private pool and grilling out on the deck. The kids had a great time, as did the parents and grandparents. Nicest beach home we've ever stayed at! The prime location also made for a great beach get away; we were just minutes away from grocery stores, great restaurants, and shopping at the wharf!

Exceeded all of our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing, very spacious and well appointed. We were a group of 8 adults, thoroughly enjoyed having our own private rooms and bathrooms also fortunate that the other side of the duplex was not rented so it was extremely private. Beach access could not be any better, the beach was pristine. Close to restaurants and shops. Perfect place to relax and unwind.

Getting ready to re-book for 2016.
