Castle in the Sand is the best!

  • 5 of 5

We are a diverse and delightful mix of people from Nashville(24 total) who have become a big family and just wanted to hang out, relax, unwind, and enjoy some down time. It was a little chilly during our stay, but we still got a couple good, solid beach days in! We could not have enjoyed ourselves as much as we did without this amazing home!! The home is much more spacious than it looks!! The pictures do not do this place justice! The kitchen is fantastic to work in and has a giant pantry! The back deck with the pool was wonderful! All the bedrooms and bathrooms were so nice and neat! The views are phenomenal from anywhere in the home! The location couldn't have been more perfect! The house was just down the street from FloraBama and minutes to fast-food, local restaurants, and shops in either direction. The owner was always prompt to answer any questions and was always so pleasant! This vacation home and entire experience was the perfect escape from reality and we hope to return in the future!!

Thank you,

Tha Family and Tha Friends <3

Perfect setting, perfect house

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home with 4 other families..and included kids from ages 3-10. We could not have had a better experience. This home is beautiful and worked perfectly for all ages. The large first floor kitchen and living space made family meals not feel cramped. We enjoyed the pool as much as we enjoyed the quick walk to the beautiful beach. The owners spared no expense with this home. They truly thought of everything from the individual master suites to the abundant beach toys, well stocked kitchen...the house had it all. It was said multiple times throughout the trip...this house is perfect. We are already looking into booking next year. Added bonus, the owner communication is top notch. You will not be disappointed!

Soccer weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this gorgeous beach house with 7 families with sons playing in a soccer tournament in Perdido. The accomodations were perfect for each family with their own room and private bathroom. The boys enjoyed staying together in the bunk room that sleeps 8. The decor in each room was unique and so inviting and tranquil. We had plenty of room to eat together, relax together in a welcoming environment. By far the best place I have stayed in all my years going to the beach (25 +). I would highly recommend this house for large families or friends needing accomodations for 26. We loved it and would go back in a hearbeat! All the amenities and more for a memorable stay! Thanks to the wonderful Mr. Crews for all of his hospitality. Castle in the Sand West is the best :)

Castle In The Sand-Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

There are no words that I could use to describe this amazing beach home...every inch of it was truly spectacular!!!! My family and I had a blast there. It's right on the beach. The pictures that are posted on the website does not do this home justice...you have to see it to believe it!!!! And the owner is equally as nice and was a joy to work with when I began inquiring about reserving this property for our family getaway. THANKS! We certainly will be returning in the near future.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

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.
