vacation rental description

When you check the calendar, the yellow dates are tentative.  If those dates interest you, be sure to inquire about availability.  Usually that means we are awaiting a deposit that might have never arrived.  

This home is located on Little Lagoon. It is less than a block from the beach. It is about 8 blocks from where Highway 59 intersects with Beach Boulevard. Please note the last photo in this ad. The
circle indicates where the house is located on the lagoon and its proximity to the beach. It is a very short walk. Also, the photo is pre-Ivan so the old "Beach House" condominiums are gone. This is an open beach area at the present time.The large dining and living area comfortably accommodates a large group. The house is raised so cars are covered and kept cool at all times. A hammock under the house provides a breezy shaded area for parents to supervise kids at play. Personally, my favorite place for morning coffee is in this hammock, watching the herons and jumping fish in the lagoon. The grill and dining table here make it easy to enjoy a cookout as well.  This is a no-smoking home. As for pets, please speak to owner before bringing your pet. If an unauthorized pet is detected, the security deposit will be forfeited.  We do allow pets but have some rules.

activities and attractions in Gulf Shores Alabama

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

traveler reviews for this gulf shores house rental

great vacation house for a family!

Review submitted: April 22, 2014   Date of arrival: April 5, 2014

We just returned from a week in this lovely home! It was perfect for a family of four (and dog) - plenty of room, clean, just minutes from the beach and shopping/dining! We had a wonderful time and would definitely rent this home again if we return to the area. I would recommend this vacation home to family and friends - we did not want to leave!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: We are so pleased these guests enjoyed their stay enough to compliment our home. Please give us a chance to host you on your next trip to Gulf Shores.

Great winter getaway

Review submitted: April 24, 2013   Date of arrival: December 29, 2012

We have rented the Sandcastle for the past 2 years and have it reserved for Jan through March of 2013 and are already looking forward to it. We have visited Gulf Shore for the past 10 winters renting three different houses and have found this to be exactly what we needed and wanted. We enjoy sitting out on the decks thinking about our friends back in Wisconsin who are suffering with another bad winter. Access to the beach is great with a good convenience store across the street. We have friends who spend six weeks in a condo across Beach Blvd. so can easily walk back and forth. This year we had about 10 inches of snow on our lawn when we returned on April 1, made us envious to see the nice temps there via the internet and wonder why we came home so early. The owners are great to work with and promptly take care of any problems.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Gulf Shores appreciates our winter visitors from what we refer to as the "frozen North." This house is a comfortable size, is located centrally and steps from the beach, and welcomes pets. We hope you'll give us the opportunity to discuss your vacation needs.

relaxing and convenient!

Review submitted: September 1, 2011   Date of arrival: August 17, 2011

we had a wonderful time staying at the sand castle. looking for a relaxing but well-located house to rent was more difficult than expected, but the sand castle was PERFECT. one block from the beach and located on the bay gave us ample outdoor time and we were able to relax on the porch while grilling at night. the house is lovely - well kept with enough space for everyone! the owner is absolutely wonderful to work with and she answered every one of my questions without complaint! the owner is very warm and obviously cares about her renters and the sand castle. highly recommended!
