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!!

Unbelievably Beautiful Property!!!
I would like to begin with just how personable and pleasant it was dealing with Lisa. She was always super fast to respond with any questions and went above and beyond to ensure you have any and all of the information you need. Just a joy to deal with!!
Now the house.... It is just beautiful. The attention to detail is stunning!! Every time I would walk into a room I would see something new I had missed before. Everything was very clean and well maintained. She obviously has an awesome house cleaner. We have stayed at some very nice places but I have never been to a home so well stocked with just about anything you will need. The one thing we had to go to the store for was Bug Spray because the biting flys were bad on the beach in the mornings. My husband made the comment “I’m surprised they don’t have bug spray because they have everything else.” Well sure enough we found a can of spray that night under the sink. Lol
We stayed on the beach from sun up till sun down. It was beautiful weather and although we brought all of our own supplies we really didn’t need to bring anything but our fishing poles. The storage room under the house is packed with everything including a refrigerator!! Everything was so convenient. The house is very close to the water so it was super easy carrying everything to the beach.
I read a previous review about how the fishing was not all that good. We had stayed at a home on Alligator Point not far from The Sand Castle in July and did very well fishing so I was hoping it would be the same. It was not the same!! We caught 3 times the fish we caught in July including 2 Drum fish that weighed between 35 to 40 pounds. The fishing was so good I couldn’t sit and enjoy a full cold beverage with out having to get up and reel in another one. Lol.
Thanks for stocking the ocean Lisa!!!
I have to say this was one of the best weekends we have had in a very long time and we will definitely be back!!
Thank you for this great review! I'm happy you found the bug spray. We make sure that you have everything you may need while staying at The Sand Castle. This is not just a rental but also our home. Our housekeeper, Katie, is the best! We live in CT and rely on her to keep the house up to it's 5 star standard. We are so happy you enjoyed your time and would love to have you back in the future.
So in love with this place!
My family and I absolutely love this place! Lisa is very attentive and communication is awesome. This is our 2nd year staying here and have already booked our trip for next year. Even though we got evacuated due to hurricane Michael, we did get to enjoy a few relaxing days and wouldn't have traded it for anything. If you are looking for a quiet beach vacation then I highly recommend renting this beautiful place from Lisa and rob.
Thank you Teri! I feel so bad that you had to leave. We had quite a bit of damage to the beach level but the house came through just fine. I'm looking forward to your next visit.
It just keeps getting better!
The 2nd time.... it just keeps getting better! You can search all day for a vacation rental along the Florida Coast and you you will NOT find a more perfect house than The Sand Castle! Amenities galore, privacy, luxury, and oh yeah your only about 10 steps from the beach! Lisa and her family do an amazing job catering to their guests and offering everything someone needs at the house! We have found our vacation spot forever! We will continue to come back and stay at this beautiful house!
Also, if you are looking for a private relaxing beach vacation, alligator point is it! No hustle or bustle, truly you are on beach time with some great seafood close by. Apalachicola is also just a short 45 min drive away. We love walking the beach here as it is peaceful and serene!
We can’t wait to come back and stay! Thank you so much for your hospitality and another 10+ star stay!

Thank you Heath. As you know we had a hurricane come thru and took most of the beach level out to sea. We are in the process of rebuilding the beach level. The house came thru with flying colors. We were very lucky and are praying for all those people who lost their homes.
Dream House on the Beach!
This was our third time staying at the Sand Castle and it won't be our last. The most beautifully decorated and amenity-filled house you could ask for and your own private beach right out the back door! It's like staying at a luxury hotel, but on your own private island. :-) Loved the bedrooms and linens, full kitchen, perfect deck furniture (best star-gazing spot ever!), outdoor shower, everything! And a fully stocked shed of beach noodles, floats, kayaks (!), umbrellas, shell pails, whew! Can you tell we liked it? Would give it six stars if we could!
Thank you Roberta! We are so happy you enjoyed yourself at The Sand Castle. Repeat guests are the best compliment we could receive. I'm looking so forward to having you back in the future.
Doesn't get any better than The Sand Castle.
No expense has been spared at this amazing beach house. Everything you could possibly need is available at your fingertips at any time. The owners have done an amazing job preparing this property. From utensils in the kitchen to stuff to play with on the beach, nothing has been overlooked. The house was clean, organized and gorgeous!! The beds were more comfortable than my own!! The owners are more than helpful before, during and after our visit. We searched for sea glass and shells on a daily basis and were very successful. We also fished daily but were unable to land a single catch. The owners could work on this. ;) Every night we ate dinner on the patio listening to the sound of the waves and afterwards, we could watch the lightning storms going on in the gulf. Also the star gazing was impeccable, Three planets were in view as well as multiple shooting stars and the Milky Way. The town of Crawfordsville is the perfect distance away. Long enough to seem like we are away from it all and close enough to feel like if we needed something from the store, we could get it easily. The Aquarium Center was neat for the kids and if you eat at any of the restaurants, get the seafood. It is all fresh and from that area. If you want to cook your own, go to My Way seafood. Freshest seafood I could find. I got shrimp, scallops and 3 whole snapper for dinner a few nights and you can taste the freshness. All in all, this has been one of the best family vacations we have ever had and the Sand Castle played a huge role in that. It is unequivocally the best property we have ever stayed in and I have a feeling we will have a hard time finding someplace better. Thank you for allowing us to make lifelong memories in such an amazing setting. My family and I will be forever grateful.
Oh thank you so much Brad for this excellant review! I'm so pleased you had a great time at The Sand Castle.You were great guests and I hope to have you back again. P.S. I will have the ocean stocked next time, Haha
Perfect relaxing house
We just visited for the first time and absolutely fell in love with the place. The house is amazingly decorated. It's very spacious and has tons of spots to sit and enjoy the views. It came equipped with everything we needed and then some. We'll definitely be back!
Thank you Sabrina! I'm so glad you and your friends had a nice weekend. The home is spacious and what I love is there's all kinds of little areas where you can sit and get away from it all. I'm looking forward to having you back in the future!
