About Tania Castleberry

We are a family of 4 who live in Atlanta, GA. I am Tania and I manage the property for our family. I was born and raised in Florida in Miami and Panama City. I have always dreamed of my own place at the beach and my dream came true when we purchased Neptune's. It is small but has the best access to the beach without being on the beach. It was affordable for our family to make this investment and we have enjoyed every year! We remodeled the unit in 2005 to make it the best possible use of every square inch. The loft was added to add extra bed space for our twin boys and make sure 6 people can sleep in beds! No sofa beds in our unit---we think they are the worst to sleep on. Come and try our little place at the beach.

Tania Castleberry purchased this condo in 2004

Why Tania Castleberry chose Florida

Great location and great pricing. You are really looking at the gulf from outside the front door---only 300 feet to the waters edge without the high price.

Please note we do not break up weeks in peak season. We only rent Sunday to Sunday, Sunday to Friday or Fri and Saturday. No exceptions. May 20 thru August 30 2015

Perfect for a weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Stayed here in Oct 2016 with my 9-yr-old daughter and my mother for a couple of nights, and would definitely recommend to others, and would stay here again given the chance. Everything about the property was just as expected/advertised, and was the perfect size (and price) for the 3 of us, although it could sleep 6 comfortably. The location is great, with beach access literally right across the street. However, I highly recommend driving down to the state park (10 minutes) and paying the day fee ($6) to visit the beaches there, which are much nicer. A pod of dolphins swam by while we were out swimming...just amazing! But go early in the day, as the flies in the afternoon this time of year are almost unbearable, even with bugspray (unless you're IN the water). We visited the lighthouse and ate out at several local establishments, and had a great meal each time. Everything about renting this property was easy, and the owner was very quick to answer any questions I had. We had trouble getting the cable to work on the living room TV, but it worked fine in both the bedrooms, and we weren't there to watch TV anyway. The wifi worked great, which kept my daughter content. Overall, a great experience for the money.

Great spot for our first beach trip with baby

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We took our daughter on her first trip to the beach, and were very pleased with the condo. The complex is small and quiet, we only saw one other family while we were there and had the pool to ourselves for the most part. The condo was clean and well appointed, the kitchen had plenty of cooking utensils, knives, and cookware. We also used the charcoal grill one night, which worked fine. I did wish the condo had more natural light in the main living area, but we weren't inside very much. The proximity to the beach was great, close enough to haul our baby-gear easily and run back inside when we forgot something or ran out of beach drinks. We also walked to "town" one day, so overall the location is fantastic. Thanks for a great stay!

A wonderful vacation--hope to do it again!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in SGI!! Other than a day trip while vacationing in Panama City Beach, this was our first time to the island. The beach was very clean and not crowded, there was white sand, clear blue water, and a continuous breeze that kept us very comfortable as we spent our days on the beach. Our condo was welcoming, with a big front porch, clean and comfortable, equipped with more amenities than we needed, and a short trip down the boardwalk to the beach! We really enjoyed meeting and getting to know our "neighbors"--everyone was very friendly! We checked out some local places, which were fun, and thought the state park was beautiful. We drove to Apalachicola two or three nights for dinner, walking around and shopping--it's a lovely little town. We liked the "local feel" of everything, the lack of commercialism, and the relaxed lifestyle we lived that week. We can't wait to go back!!

Owner's Response: Now you know why its called the "Uncommon Coast"! Our unit is a very special place with great access with an attractive price given the view and easy access to beach. It really is a Gulf View unit and only 300 ft to swimming in the beautiful Gulf waters just steps from your front door. Apalachicola is a beautiful historic Florida town which we love to explore as well.Thank you for taking care of our place and hope you return!

Couldn't ask for anything more

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th or 6th time staying at this condo. We keep coming back for so many reasons; its always clean, has everything we need to make our stay comfortable, has a beautiful view from the front porch, saves us a lot of money because it is across the street from the beach, has a swimming pool, etc. I have recommended this condo to many people. It is also conveniently located to everything you need while still being in a quite, slow pace area. Very family friendly. Wish I was going back tomorrow.

We absolutely loved everything about this condo!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, very low key beach(almost private) great pool that was very clean and well kept. I brought my boat which parked nicely on the side of the property. Inside was very clean and comfortable. Killer front porch for sunsets and conversations. My wife and I LOVED it! We're definitely going back!
