Loved our short stay at Castnetter #6. Donna and Doug went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. When we arrived the unit had been freshly painted and new carpet layed down. Donna brought over a high chair for my 2 year old and also asked if we needed a portable crib. There are beach toys, beach chairs, coolers and bikes for your use so there isn't a need to pack any of these items. The condo was very clean and comes complete with a kitchen and appliances. We chose to cook for some of our meals and we had everything we needed except the food. There is also a grill in the pool area which is very nice. My husband cooked steaks one night and both him and the grill did a great job! The beds are comfy and the bathrooms are clean. The condo also includes a laundry room which is wonderful! Castnetter is located directly across from the public beach on a somewhat busy street. We crossed the street with our two young daughters and had no problem. The vehicles always stopped since that is Florida Law and there is a crosswalk. I would definitely stay here again! Donna and Doug made us feel like family during our stay.
