Beautiful, Spacious Beachfront Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Castle in the Sand East, and it was all we remembered and more! It is such a beautiful, spacious home, with all the amenities of being at your own home. Greg was great with sending helpful information for the area, and he helped right away if we needed any thing at all. We were a group of 22, (10 were children) and there was more than enough room for everyone to spread out. Every detail about the house, from the great kitchen & finishes, to the swimming pool & private beach access, to the multiple master suites...completely sets this home apart from the others we looked into. We visited The Hangout, FlorAbama and Tacky Jacks, and enjoyed them all. We hope to visit again one day!

The atmosphere, style, and decor of the house are gorgeous! You're literally on the beach so location could not be anymore perfect. We had a great time and will definitely be returning guests!

Great HS Senior trip

  • 5 of 5

We went down with 4 other families, and 7 high school seniors for Easter break and stayed in the Castle in the Sand East. The house was absolutely beautiful and right on the beach! The private heated pool was great to jump into in the evening time. The house had two refrigerators which was key to keeping high school senior boys happy. The house also had enough rooms with attached bathrooms that everyone had their privacy. All the boys loved the bunk bed room! The senior girls loved having their own rooms. I would highly recommend this property to anyone with a large group.
