We had a lot of fun with SandiCastles!
Aug 2018 • Family
Sandi came to our beach site while on vacation in North Topsail and gave all eleven of us instructions on the right methods of building sand sculptures. She really knows what she's doing, is great with kids and adults alike. She's well prepared, knowledgeable, and makes the experience great fun for everyone. I do not hesitate to strongly recommend SandiCastles!

We had Sandi come and give our multi-generational family a sand castle building lesson during our visit to North topsail Beach and it was great fun for everyone! From grandparents to our youngest daughter (7) everyone had a great time and learned lots of tips and tricks! Sandi was so good with all of us. She was well-prepared and really had amazing skill. It was a great way for us to spend a morning. Highly recommend!!

We vacationed in Topsail Island and I hired Sandi from Sandicastles to give our grown children sandcastle building lessons. Was so much fun. Sandi was a great instructor. If your vacationing in her area and want to have some fun building sandcastles she is the one to hire.

Sandi commemorated my 60th with a beautiful castle part of a wonderful memorable day. She is a creative hard worker and my daughter and I enjoyed watching her genius in action. Thank you Sandi!

Wonderful family activity
Aug 2016 • Family
Our family of adult children arranged for a class with Sandi on the beach at Holden Beach where we were renting a house. She came right on schedule and spent a couple of hours getting ready down at the beach. She had a station set up for all 7 of us and for the next 2 hours she took us through the process of successfully building a castle, making stairs, and arches. We all were able to build structures like never before because of her instructions. At the end of the week at the beach, this was everyone's highlight. We may do a group project next summer with Sandi!

Best Day at the Beach!
Aug 2016 • Family
I set up a lesson with Sandi over the phone from Colorado. We set a time and scheduled a follow up call because I didn't know about the parking situation or beach access from our condo. The day of our follow up call, Sandi called right on time. I explained the best I could for parking and beach access but I was wrong on both accounts. Sandi was very patient and accommodating early Sunday morning when she arrived to begin her set up. After we got Sandi on the beach, we left her to do her magic and we returned 2 hours later to an amazing set up. The kids couldn't wait to get started.

Over the next couple hours we learned so much about building castles. All 6 of us in the group loved it. from the 7 year old to the 70 year old. Her teaching techniques were wonderful and kept us all active and involved. She was encouraging and helpful. We highly recommend Sandi and loved seeing her a few days later after another family from our condo had called her to set up a class for their family.

We will be calling Sandi for the next lesson when we return to Wrightsville Beach.

Awesome Lesson
Jul 2016 • Family
Sandi was incredible from beginning to end. She had excellent email correspondence throughout our process of planning our visit. Very prompt and helpful. She offered a great recommendation for a beach for our lesson since we are from the Midwest and not at all familiar with the area. Sandi gave a very hands on lesson with helpful information. It turns out that our ideas of sandcastle building were completely wrong! We learned a lot and hope to create some incredible sand art back home. It was a memorable experience for our our family vacation at the coast.

Awesome Experience!
Jul 2016 • Family
Heard about castle building lessons from a coworker who recommended it for kids and adults. SandiCastles is the only one I could find who visited Ocean Isles beach NC. Sandi was great. Very friendly and responsive to set up the lessons. She showed up about 2.5 hours before our lessons to set everything up and even make a sample castle. We had 9 kids ranging from 6-14 years old but the adults ended up learning too. We had no idea of some of the methods that we were taught and realized all these years that we were doing it all wrong. She was very helpful and you could tell she was very passionate about her work and really trying to get new, young builders involved in this art. I was glad we booked this lesson on the 2nd day of our week long beach trip. We were addicted to using the techniques using the tools she left with us to build all week. Had many people compliment us on our castles throughout the week. Definitely worth the money to book Sandi. You won't regret it and can use the skills she teaches the rest of your life! Good for all ages.

Thanks, Adam! I had a great time with your group. Keep practicing and think about participating in the August 2017 competition expected to be held in southeastern NC. All the best!

Most Amazing Day on the Beach!
May 2016 • Family
We had the opportunity to spend some time with Sandi on Carolina Beach. She is amazing! She is a great teacher and as a family we learned the techniques of sand castle building. My teenage girls loved it and said the experience was their favorite part of vacation. I would encourage any family to do this. It is a memory we will never forget and now we have some awesome skills for sand castle building in the years to come!

You folks were wonderful! One of my favorite lessons! I LOVED that you built the piece by the water's edge. Let me know when you are back in the area and we will do sand sculpting 202!! We'll go bigger and add more detail.

Mind blowing Sand(i)!
Aug 2015 • Family
Sandi was awesome! In just a couple hours we knew how to build basic, but still cool stuff. We couldn't believe what we were able to make with just one lesson. Everyone should have a lesson with Sandi and learn to make our beaches beautiful with sand sculptures! It does take a little patience, but the product will blow your mind.
