Great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the sandcastle. Pam is great to work with and the location is awesome. Several times we walked to eat and we were able to walk across the street to the beach. Nice not having to drive and worry about parking which appears limited in peak season. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because it needs updating. But for our purposes, it worked fine. The lagoon in back was great for fishing and crabbing. This place is probably best with 6 people but we made it work with 8. The laundry machines were an added plus.

Great home, bad decks

  • 3 of 5

The house was great. Location was great. The front and rear entrances into the house are via a deck. Both are in dyer need of work. We were not comfortable letting kids on deck and we held kids close when using stairs, as we entered and exited home. The decks were that bad. It sounds like we didn’t like this vrbo but, that’s not true. It really was just decks. A/C, floor plan, beds, and all else were great. Cannot say enough nice things about owner. Could not have been easier to deal with. We had to cut our trip short because of hurricane and vrbo and home owner were quick and easy to deal with. Would love to return to this home, pending decks are repaired. Would have give 5 stars, if decks weren’t so bad.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. The decks are scheduled for replacement this off season. We had them looked at early this year, and the construction company ok’d them for this summer as being safe for the maximum occupancy of the house. We could have gone ahead with the project this summer but thought guests would not have appreciated the noise and intrusion of workers at the house during their stay. UPDATE: DECKS REPLACED 12/2017. SEE NEW PHOTO IN AD.

Google Gulf Shores for an endless list of things to do for kids of all ages. From this property it is about a half block walk to the beach and the Lagoon is at your back door. Within walking distance one will find Bahama Bob's which is great place to eat outside next to the Gulf. Pier 33 Groceries is just across the street, and you can get all of your beach needs here. The amusement parks, souvenir stores, seafood markets, drug stores and Walmart are less than two miles from the Sand Castle. If you facebook or twitter, Alabama Gulf Coast is a great tool to plan and during your vacation. You can post a question about a restaurant or whatever and get instant answers by others. The new adventure park with zip lines in Gulf State Park is about three miles from the house as is the state fishing pier. Some big events to research:

Mardi Gras - January/February

Hangout Music Festival - May

Red Snapper Season - June/July

National Shrimp Festival - October

Song Writers' Festival - November
