Very private feeling, remarkable for a NJ shore destination. Ditto to the other reviewers, this place is tops! I wish we could have stayed longer. Don't miss the breakfast scones and incredible coffee. Nancy has bikes you can use and that is fun too, LBI is very flat.

My husband and I just had another amazing vacation at the Sandcastle. We have been coming here for 8 years, and it is one of my favorite vacation spots. Nancy, the innkeeper, greets you like family, and the inn just feels like home. The rooms are decorated beautifully, and I love the private entrance you have to your own private... More

We stayed at The Sand Castle for a recent weekend while attending a family gathering on the island. All around a great time! The B&B was a wonderful retreat for us. Awesome room with thoughtful and luxurious touches and decor. Amazing four poster king bed! Jacuzzi for two in the room, distant views of water and boats passing. Nancy and... More

I grew up on LBI. Living in LA now, I STILL cross the country every summer to get an LBI fix. The Sand Castle Bed and Breakfast is the finest accommodation on the island. Located in Barnegat Light away from the craziness on the south end of the island, its tranquil and beautiful and perfectly appointed. They have thought of... More

My wife found this BnB for us to visit for a quick anniversary getaway. I found it to be a very nice experience, with a wonderful daily breakfast and a very comfortable and inviting room. The staff was extremely pleasant. The only kind-of negative was the motel-style entry of our room, but that is a minor issue. It was also... More

An amazing inn, and so was the innkeeper Nancy! My husband and I haven't been away together in a while, so once we had the chance, we chose Sand Castle. We informed Nancy that we would be arriving late, and even though she couldn't be there to greet us, our suite was ready when we got there, and we were... More

The Sand Castle totally surpassed our expectations! It looked and sounded like everything written on the website. Nancy, the innkeeper, was super nice, friendly and hospitable. Everything was immaculately clean, both inside and out. Gourmet breakfasts were awesome, along with the midday sweets. I would highly recommend this B&B and plan on returning myself! Not to mention great beach (about... More

First time ever at a BNB. We were a bit apprehensive because we are normally hotel people. Inn keeper immediately put us at ease. First a short tour, then shown to our room, which was beyond our expectations. I was concerned we would be constantly "chatted up" with because of it being a BNB, but not at all. We were... More

Words almost fail to describe the level of luxury and pampering that this Innkeeper maintains. Knowing that the Sandcastle is on the horizon helps me cope with our Minnesota sub-zero winters. The rooms are beautifully appointed in sea shore themes. The breakfasts are sumptuous and include an array of fresh, ripe fruit, and entrees ranging from Eggs Benedict to waffles,... More

Simply stated, the inn keeper treats you they way she would like to be treated. This is evidenced by the quality amenities. Large, soft beach towels, comfortable beach chairs and an umbrella were available for use as well as newer bikes. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent! I would hightly recommend this B&B as it was... More
