The owner of the condo Phil was very timely in responding to my questions and very accommodating. I loved that he took time to call me and chat. The condo #605 is decorated nicely, everything was very clean, the kitchen was furnished with everything we could possibly use, and the views from the deck are amazing-its truly beachfront!

We stayed at a unit managed by Plumlee Gulf Beach Realty. The unit got very high marks on VRBO. I imagine every unit is dependent on how the owners keep it and how up-to-date it is. If you want to stay in this area, check with Plumlee. 727-595-7586. They responded immediately when we needed the televisions set up. We'll be... More

The sandcastle complexes are a bit old and rundown but that is what happens with age and sun. However the beaches are amazing, this is a great place to bring young children.lovely places to eat out around, and Publix is a great place to buy your groceries!

Hello snowlover883, Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. All of the Sand Castle buildings were built around the same time and do undergo regular maintenance (both the building exteriors and surrounding common areas) as needed. Condos are owned and maintained individually. If the particular condo you stayed in wasn’t quite what you had had in mind... More

Condo was old and needs to be repaired. Hole in wall and stains on rug. The whole place never felt clean. Sliding door and shades did not work in the master bedroom.
