Perfect Family Vacation Home

We have been lucky to stay at Castle in the Sand the last 9 years for our annual vacation. The house is well kept - provides above and beyond other rentals - clean and close to beach/pool. Owners are wonderful to work with.

Wonderful weekend getaway...

  • 5 of 5

Castle in the Sand is the perfect spot for a getaway with friends or family. We spend most of our time together in the large kitchen/dining area and on the screened-in front porch. The property is about 30 minutes from the Warren Dunes, which Were a wonderful place to visit and explore. Being from Chicago, we were happy to find that Uber was also easily accessible. The place was very clean and had all the equipment/amenities you could need. Thank you!

Clean and ready for our family.

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth stay in the Beachwalk community, and Castle in the Sand was by far the best equipped with regard to kitchen supplies (I have a very picky chef husband) and beach necessities. To have four umbrellas, countless beach towels, and an amble number of beach chairs was much appreciated. Steven was quick to respond to questions and we were very happy and comfortable during our entire stay. We hope to have opportunity to stay here on our next family reunion.

Great location just steps to beach!

  • 4 of 5

My family spent a week at Castle in the Sand and loved, loved, loved the location! This is our 7th time renting in Beachwalk and definitely one of the best locations in the community for getting to the beach with ease. The house is clean and the kitchen high-end and very well stocked. There is a first floor bedroom which was perfect for grandma. All the upstairs bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. It appears that this property is still a bit "under construction" (walls partially painted and missing molding around some windows) but nothing that interfered with our comfort.

The front porch is great for people watching and just relaxing. We liked being so close to all the action and not having to walk far to the beach or pool. There is a very cool rooftop deck (although it's missing railing and sort of dangerous for young kids) and once that is completed it would be a great place to have a drink and watch the sunset. While some of the other properties we've rented here have been fancier inside, we all agreed that this property was one of our favorites because it felt like a relaxed beach house and the location was fantastic. We will definitely consider returning to Castle in the Sand again next year. Steven the owner was very easy to work with and responsive to questions.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean. It has all new appliances. It's close to the beach, pool, basketball court and pond. The owner gave me his cell and email, but we didn't need to contact him as everything was very good. We went to the zoo and Treehouse restaurant ( very kid-friendly ). Everything was excellent!! Highly recommend!
