LOVED Sand Castle!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Have rented several times on Block Island and this was our favorite house! Very neat and clean. We found the home to be well equipt and comfortable. Loved the ocean view...the yard is a real plus. We loved that we could easily walk into town. Thank you for offering your wonderful house...we hope to return again next year,

We've been Block Island visitors since 1977. Sand Castle accommodated 6-adults and 2 toddlers very well. It is a great no frills house with a terrific large, flat yard…perfect for burning toddler energy! Though not listed, it DOES have washer/new dryer. The view of Old Harbor Point is spectacular and sunrises are worth writing home about. Beds are comfortable and this place is cozy on those occasional wet, blustery days/nights. Owner and rental agent were very responsive when we needed help navigating small issues. Nearly impossible to find an after-season value better than Sand Castle. We drove up from Georgia and stayed two weeks. Sure to be back before long!
