We highly recommend this house for cleanliness, comfort, design, & location. A wedding was our reason for this vacation. This house will be the reason we return. We had 18 family members with us ranging from 9 to 70 years of age all of which were just as pleased as we were. It is a very nice size which allowed us personal space. However, the design also let us be together without being cramped. It is beautifully decorated! A lot of thought was put into everything you may need during your stay. You will find a large number of dishes, silverware, glasses, wine glasses, pots & pans. We liked it so much we stayed in a couple of nights & grilled out. (Which was great since our party was so large the wait at restaurants could be lengthy) The double oven & double dishwashers were just what we needed. We all commented on how well we slept on the mattresses & pillows. Plus we never ran out of hot water! I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this rental. You will not be disappointed. Have a great stay!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Better than advertised!!
Our family recently visited this amazing property for a week in early March and it was one of the most enjoyable family trips we have had in years. The home was clean and the furniture , accesories and appliances were not only brand new ,but also very high end , especially for a rental property. All the bedrooms were very spacious and the layout of the home is perfect. It reallys allows everyone to spread out. There was another group on the west side of the home and we didn't even know they were over there. It's truely like two separate houses that share a parking lot out front.

The heated pool was amazing as well, our kids loved being able to swim. The water wasn't "hot" ,but was plenty warn enough to swim in , and without the heater, there is noway our kids would have entered the pool.(at least not for long)

All the rooms have large tvs and direct tv. We loved this home and can't wait to hopefully visit again real soon!!

Thanks for a great stay Greg!

Stunning gulf front home!!
In years past we have rented 3 condos.Not this year!! We all stayed together and had more than enough room!! We loved the home and it is better than advertised!! All the beds are nice and VERY comfortable, the TVs are incredible, and the overall decor of the home is nicer than iv ever seen in a rental home along Alabamas gulf coast! The heated pool was amazing, my family enjoyed it every day, the pool water averaged 84.7 degrees, which is more than warm enough this time of year. The views are incredible also, we could see water out of every bedroom! Overall, there isn't a negative thing about this home, we all loved it and hope to be back next year.

Awesome Beach Wedding!!

Just wanted to let you know the wedding was perfect.
The bride was beautiful and the groom was handsome
And both were appropriately nervous. This house
Was PERFECT ! We were able to accommodate
40 on one side of the deck for the reception dinner.
The other side we set up as a small bar area with
Conversation areas for after dinner.

Betty and I have photos we will send later.
The caterer. And the lady who helped us with
Our chair and table rentals were all of the same
Opinion that this was the most perfect beach house
For a wedding. The double executive kitchens
Made everything so convenient.

We can't thank you enough for helping make this
Such a perfect occasion.

Even our caterer said he had done
(Ships Harbour Grill) a lot
Of these events and this was one
Of the best arrangements
He had worked.

Already Rebooked for next year!!
The pictures don't do this home justice, we can't say enough good things about it!! There isn't one thing I would change , this is the best location for any beach house we have ever stayed! It's convient to Gulf Shores, in the heart of Orange Beach and Pensecola is only 15-20 minutes away! We drove over there and bought fresh fish from a great local fish market Greg recommeded.

We are not big partiers or drinkers at all, but we did enjoy walking down to the Flora-Bama at sunset and grabbing a drink and listening to some music , then heading home for a glass of wine by the heated pool, while the men cooked out on the gas grill.

We would then retire to the den for a movie and the kids would go upstairs to watch a movie in their den.

We loved the location, ALL the nice amenities , and the location simply can not be beat!! We are go glad the condos weren't build on this lot and that the owners decided to rebuild a residential house !!

Thanks again Greg, looking forward to next year..

Amazing home
This house was amazing. From the layout, furnishings, decor, double appliances, multiple king bedrooms with a view, private pool with ocean front location, and most importantly a Christian atmosphere......who could ask for more. We were blown away from the moment we stepped into this home. I have never stayed at a vacation home that was so well thought out and equipped. We had an amazing time and are already talking about booking for next year.

The decor was beautiful.It had a wonderful Kitchen and a table large enough that we could eat our meals together.The pool was a great size to cool off after a big beach day.Our neighbors were great and we had several volleyball games together. I would give this place 10 stars and recommend it to everyone I know. Thanks for wonderful week in your awesome place.

Castle in the Sand East
My family simply loved the Castles and were clamoring for me to book before we departed. The thing I loved most about the Castle was the location of the pool on the deck - We could watch the grands in the pool and on the beach at the same time

What I also loved about the Castle was the layout of the bedrooms . The hallways made each bedroom so private ! You could walk the halls and never see into anyone's room

Absolutely Perfect!
This house is just perfect! Everything inside and out is beautiful and clean! We were there for a week with 4 other families, all with young children and we loved the house! The pool was one of the best features, while kids were napping we could use our monitors and hang out by the pool! We hardly ever even saw the people that were staying on the other side, it never felt like a duplex! I cannot say enough great things about this property!

Everyone enjoyed the home!
My entire family, including my parents who are in their 70's, very much enjoyed our stay at Castle! Grandma and pops loved the bedroom on the bottom floor, and the kids loved their stay in the bunk beds (which are big enough for adults if needed) and swimming in the private pool! The boardwalk over the dunes to the gulf is awesome. We could pack up all of our belongings for a beach day and conveniently take everything across the boardwalk to the beach. The open floor plan allowed our whole family to gather together downstairs to eat with plenty of room. We never felt overly crowded, and it was easy to have your own space because of how many bedrooms there are. We were all sad when the trip came to an end. Great times in a great home!

Truely enjoy this home!
We all agreed that we truly enjoyed our stay at castle in the sand east. The home is exactly as advertised. Our group loved the location of this house, the layout, furnishings, and views!! The large glass windows allowed us to have incredible unobstructed gulf views from almost anywhere inside the home. The home was very clean upon arrival and had detailed instructions on what we were asked to do upon departing so the next guests would have a pleasant stay also.

We have visited several homes along the coast, but this home seemed to have it all! The location was AWESOME and the layout of the bedrooms and balconies allowed everyone to spread out when needed. We hope to travel back soon. The pool and boardwalk were also very convenient and laid out nicely.

Magnificent Location!!
Greg we had the best time at this residence.

The number of rooms and the layout of the main level accomplished everything we wanted it to do with the 5 families we had there.

The kitchen was conducive for us having a ton of fun making meals together.

The pool was simply wonderful to be able to enjoy.

We all had a wonderful time there.

You have a beautiful facility on a magnificent location.

I am sure you will make loads of families very happy going forward.

Thanks again for a wonderful time

Castle in the sand east is simply stunning!! We have been to several homes along the gulf coast and this is by far the best overall home we have ever visited! The amenities, layout, pool, and location were all fantastic! The home was very well maintained and clean upon arrival. All the beds were very comfy(even in bunk room) and we all loved the numerous balconies. The kitchen was well stocked and the whole kitchen, dining, and den area flowed great for our large group! We loved the location on the home as well. We will hopefully be back soon!
