This is a wonderful bed and breakfast in a great Jersey Shore location. Across the street from The Sand Castle is a gazebo where Barnegat Light hosts Summer Outdoor Concerts, an added bonus. The rooms are nicely appointed and Nancy, the owner, is top in her field. The service provided couldn't have been better! We look forward to returning next... More

The owner and creator of Sand Castle made us feel like honored guests. She went out of her way to make our stay - for our fourth anniversary - a splendid one. The accommodations are perfect, the breakfast delicious, the swimming pool just right and a nice place to relax. We loved the roof deck. Beyond all that our hostess... More

Location is top notch right on the bay. Nancy greeted us with simple room instructions and detailed accounts of how best to enjoy our stay on LBI. Knowledgeable, friendly and accomodating. Breakfast included delicious scones and hearty egg recipes. Guests are in for a real treat.

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

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
