Overview

About the property

Family friendly home

This is the home for very large family vacations to the beach. 7 bedrooms, 7-1/2 bathrooms. 5 bedrooms, with KING SIZE BEDS, face the beach and open up to porches and balcony . All bedrooms have their own private baths. There are two Master Bedrooms: 1 Master Suite on the top floor and 1 Master Suite on the first floor, both have whirlpool bath tubs and separate walk-in showers and are wheelchair accessible. There are two Bunk Bedrooms, one on each floor, with 4 FULL SIZE BUNK BEDS in each.

The house has 8 flat screen SMART TVs. Every bedroom has it's own TV, so feel free to stream a movie and relax. The Great Room has a 55" curved-screen SMART Samsung TV for family time.

The Dining Room table seats 20, so large groups can break bread together. The Kitchen island seats 4, within feet of the dining table. If you still need more seating for meals, there is an 8-foot picnic table on the adjoining porch, aligned with the inside dining table.

The Kitchen is VERY WELL STOCKED with everything you should need to prepare just about any type meal, including a jar spice rack. The appliances include a French-door refrigerator; a built-in ice maker, that will make 35 pounds of ice every 24 hours; a wonderful glass top stove, with two ovens and five burners; a microwave oven; double sink, with garbage disposal; 2 DISHWASHERS; and pantry. A second REFRIGERATOR is conveniently located in the adjoining Utility Room. Also for your convenience 3 coffee pots (one is a Keurig), 2 (4 slice) toasters, 2 blenders, a toaster oven, a crock pot, a large counter top mixer, a hand mixer and can opener have been provided.

To tantalize your taste buds, an incredible 24" by 48" gas griddle is located on the balcony just off the Dining Room, for cooking pancakes, bacon, sausage, fried eggs, burgers, hot dogs and steaks!

The Great Room is conducive to intimate gatherings for large groups in front of massive books and treasures on the bookshelves and a beautiful fireplace!

For teens who want a place to congregate there is a huge built-in picnic table under the house. Families will enjoy this space for charcoal grilling, craw fish boils and cooler summer breezes. (DO NOT PUT ASHES IN THE SAND - wait until the next day when they are cool and put them in the trash bag).

On the huge porch off the bedrooms, you can open your double French doors and retreat to your own little corner of paradise. There are wicker group settings for four people or beautiful lounge chairs to catch the rays! Mornings or evenings you will make memories that will remain with you forever. Just imagine coffee or drinks and God's perfect sunrise or sunset ingrained in your mind forever!

If you're going to the beach, there are beach chairs and beach towels and a 10 x 20 beach tent so you won't get badly sunburned. The boardwalk is magnificent and there is a sitting area halfway down with built-in benches, so you can be closer to the water at sunrise or sunset.

An interior elevator is provided for your convenience in transporting groceries and luggage, as well as anyone with mobility challenges; however please do not allow children to use it - as it is not a toy. There is a washer and dryer for light washing and to clean beach towels for the next guests.

The top floor Bunk Room has a wonderful game table for kids to play cards or board games. The Great Room also has one coffee table that opens to make a huge game table.

Come to the beach for a visit to paradise You'll think you've died and gone straight to Heaven!!!!

Blessings galore,

SUSAN

Family reunion to remember.

  • 5 of 5

Our family met up at Susan's Sandcastle III for a wonderful week. The house was perfect for gathering all of our extended family. The huge table easily accommodated all of our guests. We enjoyed he decks with the amazing view. The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. The only access to the beach and lower balcony was through the main level bedrooms which was not always convenient for guests, but we worked it out. We spent most of our time at the beach which was perfect for our young children and teenagers. We had a great experience and would love to do it all again.

Beautiful, spacious and wonderful location on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Great communication from owners and local property manager. Beautiful house, stocked with everything a large group would need for cooking. We had a family of 26 in three generations--room for joint activities and room for individuals to find some alone time. Plenty of chairs in kitchen, on decks and on beach. Lots of beach gear, games and books. Best family vacation we have had in 40 years.

Everything AWESOME!!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location. location. So thankful we chose this location as the private beach was so nice for our family to enjoy.

It was great being able to walk from the deck directly on out on to the white sand beach.

The house was awesome and perfect for our group of 18 family members. The owners have thought of pretty much everything you need to make your stay wonderful. Dana responded very quickly to any questions and/or concerns we had. Hope to visit Gulf Shores/Fort Morgan and Susan's Sand Castle again!!

Slice of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We planned a multi-generational family trip that included my husband and I, our 3 adult kids and spouses, 5 grandkids from 5years to 4months, and a great grandmother. The pictures of Susan’s Sandcastle 3 don’t do it justice. This house is beyond amazing. They have thought of everything that you could possibly need. The kitchen is stocked with every gadget you could want. The bedrooms are spacious and beautiful. All the beds are comfortable. The elevator was extremely helpful. Having the walkway to the beach was convenient as opposed to having to climb stairs down and dragging all your things through the sand. There were lots of sand toys and beach towels. The spacious decks were awesome to be able to sit and enjoy the sea breezes, crashing waves, salt air and sunrises. The beach was beautiful and not crazy packed that may change when school gets out but we felt like we had it to ourselves. Everyone had an amazing time and has already started talking about next year. Dana was super helpful answering questions and offering any suggestions.

Susan and Jerry thank you for sharing your piece of Heaven with us.

Now this is strictly for all who are planning a beach trip— please teach your kids to clean up the beaches. Please keep our beaches clean and protect the sea creatures.

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we could have asked for and more! The view is amazing! The location is very family friendly. It was like we had the beach to ourselves! Each room had their own bathroom and access to the balcony (the bunk rooms did not have balcony access). There was no “fighting” over rooms because they were all great. The house had all the amenities you need and more. Plenty of kitchen appliances and plates/silverware/etc for a large group. There were beach toys, towels, and chairs. The boardwalk to the ocean had a shower to rinse off with hot water!! The house also has an elevator so my handicapped parents could get to all levels of the house. We will definitely be coming back. The owner was so sweet and accommodating that I could not recommend her more!!

Beautiful Location and Property, Very Kind People

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for an extended family vacation. We had 20 people, including 5 couples and 10 children. The property was family and kid friendly, and everyone of every age (64 down to 2) was very comfortable and enjoyed themselves. The property was meticulously clean, organized, and everything was very nice. We cooked all but 1 meal for the week and had no problems with supplies or space. The owners were extremely kind and responded immediately to all of our questions, and took care of concerns immediately. The location and beach were private and we felt safe and relaxed. We accidentally left a special item, (a comfort baby blanket) and when we realized that we did, we texted the owner and the next morning the cleaning service had our item sent back to us. Thank you so much for going above and beyond, we really appreciate it. We would love to stay again, and are planning to do so.
