Ok

  • 3 of 5

Great location to beach. House was just ok. Deck had several nails that needed to be nailed down. Grass was full of stickers and needed mowing when we got there. Be advised the store across the street has early morning deliveries. I would stay here again without our dogs or grandchild. The location to gulf and the lagoon are the selling points for renting this house. Also Pam is very helpful and good to deal with

  • 5 of 5

The property comes with everything and extras!!! We had fun watching the animal life at night on the lagoon. During the day we would walk across the the road and spend the day on the beach... It is close to everything food/fun. I would recommend property and Pam was very nice and went out of her way when I called to ask if cleaning people had found my sons Ray -Bans he left behind. Pam went to house to check herself and is mailing them back to us.we loved having are Dogs with us and they loved it too!!! We will be back to Sand Castle great family vacation great memories made there. Thanks Pam for your rental house.

Happy renters

Great location, Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We attended the Hangout Fest and were very pleased with this property. It was less than a mile from the event and steps away from a grocery store. The property was clean and comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. The master bedroom and bath were huge and all other bedrooms very comfortable. We will definitely stay here again. See you next year!
