visited last weekend and loved it again, as ever. the amenities are terrific, the privacy and intimacy are great and RVA does a great job running the property. Both the bay side units and the gulf side ones are tremendous.

Nice, clean and very cosy self catering apartments. Few steps to the beaches with lovely sunsets. Short car ride to Siesta Keys and Anna Maria Island if you want to visit other beaches. Would love to come back!

The views and the walk to the beach were amazing. Worth the money. The kitchen and baths were very up to date. Showers, AC, blinds, and parking get an A+. What was problematic was the lack of paper products and fresh towels. We stayed four nights and paid over 1,200 dollars and were told we would only have toilet paper... More

For a collection of privately owned condos, we found #26 which is a 1 bedroom on the 2nd floor and has a great view of the bay from the screened balcony to be just we were looking for. The condo was near the back of the property which lended to more privacy and was a very easy stroll to the... More

We stayed just 3 short nights over spring break. We stayed in unit #22 which is upstairs and it was furnished very well and very quiet. I've rented many condos and homes and this one was stocked very well. Although the unit didn't have its own washer/dryer they did have one to use free of charge a few units away.... More

Great location ! The unit was very dated , no ice cube maker , very old stove and microwave . Furniture , lamps , rug all need to be replaced. The color on the living room tv was awful. The bath towels were paper thin and there wasn't even a bath mat to step on when getting out of the... More

RVAFlorida, Manager at Beach Castle Resort, responded to this review

We were disappointed to hear of this guests experience at Beach Castle Resort. Unit #26 is not managed by the onsite management company, RVA, but rather by another local management company on the island. Since each unit is privately owned - they are at the owner's personal discretion. We recommend all potential guests considering a Beach Castle vacation book with... More

Our favorite "private" beach in the US. Beach castle never disappoints. The proximity to the gulf, amenities and amazing restaurants within walking distance are spectacular. Great for families, couples and anyone frankly looking for a peaceful getaway.

The Beach Castle Resort hotel is the perfect vacation rental if you're looking for a quiet restful spot on the beach. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The hotel was in great condition and felt more like an apartment on the beach, than a "hotel". I especially appreciated the complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas and having direct access to...

We stayed a condo #14 it was clean and we felt reasonably decorated for the price we paid. The screened in porch offered a nice landscaped view. There was a fantastic Publix located just down the...
