We stayed at this very spacious unit between Christmas and New Year's. The facility had everything we needed. Three bedrooms, two baths, laundry facilities and full-sized well-equipped kitchen. This corner unit also has a balcony that wraps around so you get a view of the inter-coastal and well as the beach. Excellent views. Master bedroom and living room open onto... More

Let me start by apologizing to you. It is important to us that you have a good experience every time you return to us. Last year 71% of guest had stayed with us previously. Meeting your expectations is a big part of that success. The demand in our area has increased so much that it is difficult to make repairs... More

Our original reservation was for Sandcastle 1, unit 1002. Upon arrival we were told that unit 1002 was having some rehab done. We were sent to unit 802, upon arrival at that unit we discovered it was substandard. The next day we went to ask for another unit. We were offered unit 604 in Sandcastle 3. It was $400 more...

We rented Sand Castle III #504 through Plumlee Realty. GREAT LOCATION! The unit was beachfront and was very clean. Having a cocktail on the patio in the evening while listening to the roar of the surf was heavenly. There was a cold snap while we were there, in the mid-60's most days, so the beachfront heated pool and the hot... More

We stayed in Sand castle III on 5th floor and enjoyed our time there. I will touch more on beach and area of condo as many people have commented on the units. I will say our unit was wonderful for our family and would go back again. The location of these condos was perfect for us. The beach is quieter... More

Our family stayed at sandcastle 3. We loved the location, and the condo was comfortable. We stayed several days, and found the location to be very convenient for our activities surrounding my sisters wedding on the beach. Certain items didn't work in the kitchen. Overall a very good stay.

My husband and I are from Colorado and have come out to Florida the past four years. We decided to bring along my parents this year and change things up this year bypassing the hotels and instead trying out a beach front condo found online on the VRBO.com website. We lucked out. I found this condo and rented it for... More

Many upgrades were evident in the condo. It was very clean and modern. The kitchen was recently done with a new counter and backsplash. The welcome starter kit was very helpful to get us going. The bbqs are well located behind a wind screen making it easy to get the meal done. Excellent location on the beach and the pool... More
