“Perfect Retreat- More than 5 stars”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2015

Let me begin by saying that I have never used a rent-by-owner program before. After this experience, I most definitely will, and hopefully to return to this lovely place. Jeannie was easy to communicate with, and everything was as expected when we arrived. The unit was spacious, clean, and well updated. The beach and pool were within a short walk, and there was excellent dining within just a few blocks. I could not have asked for a better experience, location, or agent throughout this trip. Please do yourself a favor and rent this unit. You will not regret it! If you do choose to come here, try Pajano's across the street, Keegan's a few doors down, and Guppy's a little further. You will have not only a great vacation, but also great meals!

“Can't wait to come back!!”

We just got home from our stay at Sandcastle 1 and are missing it already. The condo is clean, very well maintained and beautifully decorated. It feels like home when you walk in the door. Beautiful view of the ocean, the pool was always warm and cleaned daily. Pool area, lounge chairs, and tables were washed daily. Lots of great restaurants and shopping nearby. The grounds are exceptionally well maintained. Access to 2 BBQ's and covered parking were a nice added bonus. We are looking forward to staying in this unit again. Thank you for an amazing vacation!!

Have nothing but positive things to say about our stay! Condo was clean, everything down to spices was there for our needs. Almost every spot in the condo had a great view. The beds were comfortable, furnished with nice furniture. Will recommend this unit to friends and family.

“A Magnificent Vacation”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2013

First of all, our family had a great time. I don't think any hotels that we ever been at can top this one. The view from the balcony was gorgeous; seeing the ocean and sunset everyday was just a blessing. The kitchen had all the tools and dish sets that we needed. The suite its self was very clean. The rooms were excellent. We loved the fact that all the TVs were new and updated. The pool and Jacuzzi were clean and had a lot of space. We took a ton of pictures on the beach, and they turned out amazing. There are a ton of places to go to like grocery shopping, and Disney World is only an hour away! The sand and water were clear. We cannot wait to go to come back next year :) The paintings and the design of the whole suite was just beautiful. I would recommend this condo!

“Comfortable Condo, Direct Gulf Front!”

Reviewed 7 May 2013

This was our second trip to this condo. The place has all new tiles [or at least it appears that way] and is completely spotless. This a corner unit with sweeping views of the shore, and it is not too high up [third floor] that people look like ants on the sand... The bathrooms are beautiful, and the W/D is new, a front loader with a fairly large capacity. All appliances were fairly new and worked well. The blender was great, and we used it a lot! The beds were comfy, and the A/C worked great. I hooked up my lap top in the "third" bedroom [an area off the kitchen with a pull out couch bed] and it was just like home! Plusses include an elevator, a large heated pool with plenty of lounge chairs, and my favorite of all-a large heated spa area with powerful jets to ease away any muscle aches. The grounds are well maintained and very clean. The staff member handling the condo was friendly and aimed to please. My only disappointment was that the full size round table on the covered porch was replaced with a much smaller one, no doubt because the original table was blown away with tropical storm Debby last year! It made it difficult to have meals outside looking at the sunset. St. John's Pass area is a ten minute ride away-There we had our best meal of our vacation at the Friendly Fisherman. You have to try the grilled Mahi! And also while there at the Pass, try Delosa's for the best Brooklyn pizza in Florida. Also, St. Petersburg is 20 minutes away if you are interested in the Dali Museum. Driving from the treasure Island causeway, the road takes you directly to the Central Ave. downtown artsy neighborhood, an area filled with great restaurants, shops, and outdoor cafes

My sister and I had an amazing week together and were blessed to have had the opportunity to stay here. The condo was comfortable and stocked with everything we needed for the week. We really appreciated the brand new beach chairs that we were able to use. Very clean and quiet surroundings and an awesome view from the couch had you looking straight into the gulf waters without leaving your seat. i would highly reccomend this especially for families.

“Family vacation”

Reviewed 15 May 2012

I stayed here with my husband and three children (ages 7-14). It was a beautiful location just a few steps from the private beach. The home is exactly as the pictures show. It is with in walking distance to just about everything (restaurants, ice cream, gas station, coffe etc...). The owner is very easy to talk to and he is very good at responding quickly to any inquiries. He has provided towels, beach toys, chairs. The only thing I wish I had was a broom. Other then that we do not have one complaint We had a lot of fun and will definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends. Thank you Drew.

“Awesome Vacation”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2011

We had a great time. The condo was clean and well stocked with items needed ( especially the kitchen). Only thing that could have made it super perfect is if the unit had beach chairs that we could take to the beach. We did rent the lounge chairs and umbrella for a decent price. Very family friendly and clean. Cant wait to go back next year.

“Fantastic condo right on the beach”

Reviewed 16 May 2010

Sand Castle #301 was the perfect place for our vacation. Just a very short walk and we were right on the beach. The westward facing deck allowed us to watch gorgeous sunsets each night. The condo was extremely clean, and had everything we needed for our stay. We will definitely recommend the condo and area to friends and family.
