Great location, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 young daughters had a wonderful time at this property. The condo had everything we could've wanted, including beach toys for the kids and beach chairs for us. The pool and Jacuzzi were immaculate and enjoyed just hanging out there when we weren't on the beach or dining at one of the many close by restaurants. We made a day trip to Disney but the rest of the time we just enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and taking in the views, early morning shell hunts on the beach or just being beach bums. Lots to do... or not. Highly recommend this place, and I can't wait to come back.

Beachfront Beauty

  • 5 of 5

This condo had a fantastic view and was in a great location for good restaurants. The property was very clean with many amenities such as beach towels and chairs provided. We enjoyed cooking out one night using the outside grills. We are already looking forward to going back next year. Maybe the weather will be warmer next year!

Perfect place for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

I can't really say much more than what has already been said in previous reviews, but I will say that when you are looking for that perfect place to take your family, look no further. Everything about this place was great and well represented. Pam's attention to detail with respect to cleanliness, amenities, comfort, and location gave us peace of mind going in and delivered on our expectations.

The condo is located between Clearwater Beach and John's Pass, which are both about 15 minute drives and offer plenty to do. But the beach outside the condo is also not crowded, so it's a great place to just lay out or take walks or just hang out and relax. And, the sunsets were spectacular!

It's always a bit of a gamble when booking places away from home, but Pam really does a great job to ensure that you have the best experience possible. Thanks for your part in making a successful Christmas Vacation for my family!

Tidy Clean Ocean Front Condo In Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This three bedroom well maintained and appointed condominium has an impressive beach view from its Ocean Front balcony. The beds and furniture are most comfortable, and the electronics and WiFi are up to date and work well. The modern well equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and plenty of utensils invites cooking exotic meals while many quality nearby restaurants provide almost limitless choices when eating out. Easy access to the pool, hot tub and beach make this unit a most desirable vacation rental. Renter and guest parking is ample. The building corridors, elevators and grounds are cleaned daily by Al who is dependable, polite and helpful. Our host Pam was always available to assist when needed. We highly recommend Penthouse #2 at Sandcastle II. Kerns and Tina

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and Comfortable Condo. View is wonderful from the 10th floor. Great balcony to sit and enjoy morning coffee and watch for the dolphins to swim by. Beds are comfortable and very nice towels. Including Beach towels. There's everything you need for a great trip provided. You can't beat the location. Many local restaurants and activities down the road at Johns Pass. (Jet Ski's, Parasailing, Shopping, Boat Tours, etc.) The Pub restaurant/bar across the street is convenient and serves great food and beverages. Also, across the street is a ice cream shop with fantastic homemade daily ice cream. Other favorites are PJ's Oyster Bar/Restaurant, The Conche, and Mad Beach Brewery. JD's is also good and has live music everyday on their patio and a piano bar inside. And, don't forget a visit to Mauhauffers aka Sloppy Johns-The Wurst place on the beach. It's truly a unique experience for a cocktail. (No food Served) The beach has much wildlife and shells for collecting. The owner provides great customer service. If you have any questions or issues she usually gets back to you within the hour. I would highly recommend a stay in this Condo. It was our 3rd time here and coming back next year!

Top notch accomodations and location!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was amazing, so happy we spent the extra money to rent this beautiful unit. We really appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was as we cooked most our meals. We had two small boys with us and spent a lot of time on the beach, so we loved all the beach toys, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, beach towels provided with the unit. Everything was updated and top notch from beds/linens, great towels, updated décor/furnishings. We loved the location and view – perfect for our family and lots of stuff close by to eat/do/shop/rental stuff/fishing/etc. Owner's was great with communication – always very responsive with any questions.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you enjoyed the use of the kitchen. I try to think of everything so that you can save money preparing your meals rather than eating out all of the time. I'm a Mom and spent many times taking the kids to the beach and know what they love! Thank you for your review and I hope to have you back soon! Pam
