Great Stay

April 1, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at the house it was a great location and we had plenty of room. I would suggest that you put some potholders in the kitchen and put at least two towels and bath clothes per person. We only had one for each person and we had to wash them every day.

Owner's reply:

Hi Sheila,

Thanks so much for your review. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay!

Great suggestion on the potholders -- I will contact my property manager (Sandcastle Escapes) today to take care of it. With respect to the towels, please know that you could always contact Sandcastle to bring you more. But I will have them put more towels in for the future.

Thanks so much again,

The beach house was not only close to the beach it was close to lots of shopping and restaurants as well! The home was very spacious and had everything provided that you would want in a vacation home! It was beautiful and very well kept! I would definitely recommend renting in this community to anyone! Thanks!
