About the property

Luxurious Accommodations

Vacation in the lap of luxury! Sunrises and sunsets, nestled on the white sand, The Sand Castle is reminiscent of a time gone by. Sit on one of two large ocean facing decks ,one completely screened in, to watch dolphins frolicking in the water and the pelicans diving for their dinner. This is a natural habitat for sea turtles. They lay their eggs on the beach. If you're lucky enough you may even spy a bald eagle soaring overhead. Enjoy time on the beach fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking ( 3 doubles ), swimming and soaking up the sun. There is an outdoor shower perfect for rinsing off the sand and salt. After a long day of relaxation and play, head upstairs to a perfectly appointed chefs kitchen to prepare your catch of the day. Here you will find everything you need to create the perfect meal. After dinner spend some time on the screened porch hanging in the hammock or napping / sleeping on the brand new full sized bed while listening to the waves or watching the OUTDOOR TV. When night falls and bed time is calling, stretch out on fine linens, relax while watching TV or sleep with the windows open and catch that sweet ocean breeze. Perfect for a family, couples or friends getaway. HEAVEN on Earth!! ALSO, DON"T FORGET TO TAKE YOUR FREE SAND CASTLE BEACH BAG and CHARGER/FAN HOME WITH YOU!!

Comfort and style in every detail! Fabulous kitchen, the porches on every level offered space to relax and the beach “toy closet” was filled with everything you could possibly want! Thank you Lisa and Robert!

Owner's Response: Thank you Victoria! I am so happy you enjoyed your stay! We keep adding to the "toy closet". If it's fun and has to do with the water we more than likely have it. I hope you had a safe trip home and hope to have you back in the future.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

I am a residential contractor and very attentive and critical of homes. This home exceeded all of my expectations with its appearance and its size. The quality of the workmanship of the builder, designer and decorator was amazing. This home is excellent, the photos do not give it its justice. The owners contacted us prior to our trip with detailed instructions and also after our arrival to insure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. I took most of the pictures and I don't think you can capture the true beauty of this home. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you back in the future.

Wow, where do I start with the luxury of this magnificent on the beach home! I say on the beach instead of beach front because literally the views from the living room and porches are breathtaking! The attention to detail and convenience that Lisa and her husband provide their house guests are amazing! Staying at this house includes everything such as soaps, shampoo, condiments, spices to cook with, outdoor toys, beach chairs, towels, kayaks, paddle board, this list goes on! My wife and I have stayed all over the panhandle from Panama City, Cale San Blas, and into St Teresa and can assure you that you will not find a better home and be cared for more than at The Sand Castle! We will be back many more times! Thank you for making our beach vacation the best yet!

Owner's Response: Wow Heath! Thank you for this great review! I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay. My Husband and I try to be sure that the guests have everything they need to make their vacation all that it should be. We stayed at many 5 star hotels and resorts and we've added many of amenities you would find at these world class resorts. I'm looking forward to your return in September.

Beautiful home in secluded area.

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful home with beautiful furnishings. The only negatives were the ants in the master bath, kitchen and wet bar. Along with the lack of detail I feel the house cleaner pays this property. Such a beautiful home deserves the best care and close attention to detail.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! I was not aware of the ant situation. I will be sure to have someone out to have them taken care of right away! Also, I apologize that you felt that the house could have been cleaner; our housekeeper generally receives rave reviews for her work. We do hope that you would consider giving us another try in the future.

Everything and the kitchen sink!!!

  • 5 of 5

I was hesitant at first to book a trip away from the touristy beach vacations that we had in the past especially knowing that we would be taking our "adult" college aged children and did not want boredom to set in but this was most definitely our best family vacation ever!

The house and all the additional amenities was the reason for this. We decided to bring plenty of groceries for the week (or stopped in Crawfordville for the "grocery pickup" at Walmart) since the available restaurants in Panacea are limited. We cooked or grilled all our meals except one and the chefs kitchen did not disappoint! Every cooking tool, spice, mixing bowl or anything you needed! It was like being at my own home.

We fished, kayaked, sun bathed, swam, had beach picnics, all while being literally steps away from the house. The only thing bad I could say about this vacation is that we brought way too much stuff with us. Reading the reviews helped us not pack as much but there is not enough characters to type all that is truly included at The Sand Castle. The owners have thought of everything and in doing so made our trip that much more enjoyable! We will be coming back for sure!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This home is gorgeous. The moment you walk up through the walkway to the beach is simply stunning! We had a wonderful family vacation here. Nothing lacks, lots of room, everything you could possibly need away from home. They even had a highchair for my little one. Only downside of our trip was a mandatory evacuation for two days due to tropical storm Alberto. However, the owner, housekeeper and handyman went above and beyond, helping us through it, and getting us back in as soon as it was possible. The owner even gave us a refund for the days we were evacuated, with no questions asked. Definitely a great place and I wouldn’t hesitate to book it again.
