We stayed here from January 2 - 9th, 2015 in the Sand Castle 2 Building. Our condo was newly updated with nice furnishings and a completely remodeled kitchen. 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. First lets say the view is spectacular! Right on the beach. Condo had everything that you needed for a comfortable stay. A little tight in the seating... More

We spent the week in unit 606 and the condo was wonderful. However the elevators are in MUCH need of repair, which is actually scheduled for the next week after we left. The pool was okay, but there were lots of bugs in it. The hot tub was great, when we could use it. While there are 2 signs stating... More

Loved the condo, it was updated and very well maintained. The 2nd floor condos have direct access to the pool / beach directly off the padio. Gas grills are provided on the pool deck and fuel for the grills is provided. We will definitely be back to stay in this Condo again.

Every year they start remodeling for when the snow birds return. The place is beautiful, the beach is beautiful, but you will likely listen to jackhammers if you come in September. Also the pool area may be closed due to construction

PlumleeRentals, Manager at Sand Castle Condominiums, responded to this review

It is true September is the beginning of our off season so that is when the most work is done. However, the good news is it sounds like the type of work you ran into is not a typical yearly occurrence but is a necessary process every number of years to insure the building continues to be in good condition....

My family stayed in the sand castle 3 condo on the 6th floor. All of the units have an ocean front view, and WOW, what a view! We enjoyed the sunset from our spacious three bedroom condo living room every evening. You'll find a king size bed, a queen bed, and two twin size beds for the bedroom arrangements, a... More

This place was great! We had an ocean front condo and we could watch dolphins from our balcony in the morning! The cindo itself was great too. It was quiet and peaceful not to busy. The beach was like having our own private beach it wasnt packed like clearwater beach im glad we decided to stay here!

Stunning ocean views and great location but parking is tough. We spent a ton of time jockeying cars around and begging for parking passes. The actual unit has been treated with all of the love and care of an absentee mother. Stained carpets and really outdated decor dominate the place. The walls need to be painted or minimally, washed, and... More

Hello Dita D, Thank you for your feedback. These are all privately owned condos and, as such, the interior décor is maintained and replaced by the owners. If you reserved through a property management company, they would address your concerns about the carpet and walls. Since the specific Sand Castle building and unit number was not noted in the review,... More

We stayed at sand castle lll unit 504 and was amazing. The condo had ever thing we needed, we had great views, and most important it was clean. The only problem we had was we had to go home. I could live in that condo!!

we stayed at Sand Castle II unit 701. The unit was as advertised. Clean and roomy for the 8 of us. I will say that both bathrooms need vents of some kind and the patio door needs to be replaced. That being said, we had a great time staying here and will stay here again. Someone came to measure for... More
