My wife and I went to LBI for our niece's wedding. The Sand Castle was the icing on the cake of a wonderful trip. The accomadtions were superb and we wanted for nothing. That includes breakfast, coffee, daily snacks and a great host. (Nancy) Friendly guests too! Rick D

The room we stayed in was called "Seascape". It was charmingly decorated, with a view of the bay and a private entrance. It was spotlessly clean and had every possible amenity. The owner of this B&B has obviously thought out every need her guests might have. We appreciated the water bottles to take to the beach, the terrific magnifying mirror,... More

I was looking for that one last perfect trip & very fortunately found it!!! The Sandcastle B&B is everything a 5 start offers with the warm and welcoming feeling of the bed and breakfast! I don't have one thing to complain about the entire stay but that I didn't stay long enough!

While when we arrived into the parking lot, we were greeted by a couple sitting on the steps smoking. I wasn't pleased. Not a classy first impression. But it was all up hill from there. Nancy the owner is a great person. Our room was very small, but extremely clean. The bathroom was new and beautiful. We enjoyed the roof... More

The Sand Castle is a completely non-smoking property. Smokers are advised that they must leave the premises and not smoke around other guests. We apologize for the guests who broke our rule and wish we had seen them to put a stop to it. But glad you were able to get past that to enjoy our facility! Thank you! More

I wish I could give the Sand Castle more than 5 stars because it deserves it! This was our third visit here and I'm sure it won't be the last. We stayed in the Sunset Vista Suite on our most recent visit and it was everything we hoped it would be. The bed was big and comfortable and the in-room... More

The Sand Castle calls itself a "luxury" B&B, and it's just that. It is beautifully decorated with an interesting layout, and even features a rooftop sitting area that offers a great view. Our room was comfortable and spotless, and smartly arranged. Even though it's compact, it doesn't lack for any amenity, and is very quiet, as is the entire area.... More

we came here for our honeymoon, and to be clear, i'm not a foodie. food is usually one of the last things i consider when planning a trip. but this place, WOW. the breakfast on offer there is just untouchable. they have a small buffet of home-made baked-that-day pies, pastries, and cakes along with assortments of fresh fruit, yogurt, etc....

Nancy is the best Innkeeper Host you could ask for. She's helpful, friendly and just a wonderful person overall. Great location with beautiful, clean rooms. Everything you need is provided - beach chairs and all. Breakfast is delicious! I could go on and on. This was our second stay here and we're looking forward to the third soon!!
