Beautiful updated oceanfront home

  • 5 of 5

The home is completely updated with outstanding views. The kids loved the three TV’s in the family room. The decks are huge with unbelievable views. The floor plan is open and great for large families. The kids loved fishing on the pier. The beach is beautiful!! Tania was very easy to work with! We will be returning!

My FAVORITE place on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

My time away from work is so precious to me...and this visit was particularly important as my first child graduates and heads to college next year (and will be playing soccer, effectively making *full* family vacations difficult during the summer.) We have been coming to Sydney's Sandcastles since the kids were toddlers - and you ask them where they want to go - offer up Cancun, Breckenridge, New York - and they always say Sydney's Sandcastle. In addition to that, it is my favorite place ever too. We lead a very busy life, and in addition to Pensacola's laid back beach feeling, Sydney's Sandcastle provides me wonderful decompression time. I have yet to go anywhere that total relaxes me and feel like a queen.

Spectacular 2 weeks

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 1st week with friends and 2nd week with family. One of our best vacations ever. We stayed here last year at the same time. Tania is great to work with and answered all questions promptly. Short walk to beach and great views from balcony. A couple of suggestions would be ceiling fans in bedrooms. I'm used to having them on at night. Also but not a big deal would be a big screen tv above the fireplace instead of 2 small ones on each side. Although it was nice to watch 2 different sporting events at the same time. Overall one fantastic home to stay in.

Great home for large families

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed with our entire extended family including my parents, brother’s family of three teenage children and my family with two young children for a week in at Sydney’s Sandcastle. The views were great and the bay behind the house was perfect for fishing for the kids. The amenities were spot on and the house is very clean and offers multiple rooms for families. The balconies offer great views and breezes off the ocean, however I wish there was more comfortable furniture to take in the outside.

The house is equipped with loads of fun beach toys, umbrellas, chairs and more for a fun filled day at the beach.

Tania is very prompt on answering questions and gives great details for your stay. Beware of Blue Angels weekend! If you arriving the day of the Blue Angels performance, come in a back way or arrive later in the evening as trafffic is a nightmare- which Tania made us aware of, so we were prepared.

The trolley stops right at the entrance gate of the beach community the house is located in, and is perfect for trips into town.

We loved our visit to this wonderful home and found it to be much larger than we expected! It’s the perfect setting for large families.
