Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for a family! The house was clean and well equipped. Everything was supplied for indoor comfort and fun as well as outdoor adventures. The house was very welcoming and family friendly with enough open areas and private areas. The location is excellent for the beach and the pool. Before we arrived, our communication with the owners was easy and the owner was very responsive to my questions. Because everything was so nice, I never had to contact him during our stay:) My family will have great memories of our time at Castle in the Sand!

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.
