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.

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

After going to Gulf Shores for twenty years, we have finally found the perfect beach house for our large, extended family. Castle in the Sand is beautifully decorated and well-equipped with everything needed. There are five master suites with their own bathrooms and four other bedrooms, two of which are bunk rooms--perfect for our grandchildren. The kitchen is great, with two dishwashers, two refrigerators and plenty of dishes and utensils for cooking if you decide to eat in. If you want to eat out, there are plenty of nice restaurants within ten minutes of the house. The house is right on the beach, with a walkway out to the beach. And there aren't any houses nearby, so it's like a private beach. The pool is perfect for a large family, and the views from the house are spectacular. I highly recommend this fantastic house--we have already reserved it for our family reunion next May.

A Blessing on the Beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fabulous vacation thanks to this house and its location. The home is gorgeous, well equipped and situated right on the beach. The King suites with private baths and private balconies facing the beach were a huge hit. The kitchen was amazing. The 2 refrigerators, 2 dishwashers, 2 ovens and other amenities made meals and clean up so much easier for our group of 17. The heated pool was a wonderful treat for the 10 kids. The beach is just steps away and was amazing. Shopping and restaurants were convenient to the location. We had an amazing time and have already booked the home for next year.

Magnificent Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Greg we had the best time at this residence.

The number of rooms and the layout of the main level accomplished everything we wanted it to do with the 5 families we had there.

The kitchen was conducive for us having a ton of fun making meals together.

The pool was simply wonderful to be able to enjoy.

We all had a wonderful time there.

You have a beautiful facility on a magnificent location.

I am sure you will make loads of families very happy going forward.

Thanks again for a wonderful time
