Welcome to the Sand Castle! This expansive home is the ideal get-away for large families. In 2013, we did an $80,000 remodel on the interior and exterior!
On the main (2nd) floor is a living-dining-cooking area, and two master suites with private baths. The kitchen has granite counters, stainless appliances and a breakfast bar which can seat 4. The dining area has seating for 8. The living area has a tv, stereo, wet bar and plenty of room for everyone. Outside, you will find a huge deck, which greatly expands the entertaining areas.
The 3rd floor features two queen bedrooms and a loft. The loft has a day bed and trundle overlooking the living area. The loft opens onto a wonderful deck with panoramic ocean views!
On the ground floor there is a large bunk room with two twin-over-double bunkbeds. One of the beds has a twin trundle bed underneath. This room is perfect for a bunch of kids or a few adults. This floor also has a full bath, game room with pool table, dart board and large screen TV

Sand Castle a must stay!
LOVED this house! It was ideal for our family and friends(17 total) who came to town for our daughter's wedding. The 3 floors provided plenty of privacy for everyone; TV's in every bedroom; enough bathrooms to go around plus the ocean view was wonderful. I would highly recommend this house for a vacation to anyone!
We are confident that all our future guests will love Sand Castle as much as our first guest did. The house is beautifully decorated, spacious, designed perfectly for large family groups, contains many amenities, and it is directly on the beach!

We had a wonderful time at the Sand Castle. The house was able to sleep all 15 of us, plenty of towels and beach towels. We cooked all of our meals there, only minor problems with adequate cookware. The problem in the kitchen was the water leaking under the sink, it has been happening for some time. . The door stop on the deck did not have the rubber piece on it, was a hazard to my feed. The beach access steps were a challange for my husband and I. We are in our 70's. I understand the storm did the damage, but a better replacement is needed. Everyone loved the house and voted to have it again next year. I need to know that better beach access has been built before I book it again. The house and furniture were great. Need minor repairs to be made.
Fantastic Beach Get Away!
Once again Wren Beach Rentals came through with a wonderful home to spend a long weekend with my family. The Sandcastle property is a beautiful home with all the amenities we were looking for. Every year we try to get away for a long weekend in January with my brothers and sister and their spouses (6 couples) in the Ponte Vedra area. We desire to spend as much quality time together as we can so we stay in and prepare all our meals at the house. Sandcastle is very well supplied with all kitchen utensils and plenty of seating for meals with our big group. We enjoyed spending hours on the back deck fellowshipping while looking at the beautiful ocean (even saw a whale pass by one day several times). The property was very clean and well-maintained just like it looks on the website. The only negative was that we had six couples and it really is a five bedroom house plus a loft with two twins. It was not very private for the couple in the loft but we are a close family so it wasn't that big of a deal. Overall it was great and I would definitely recommend it to friends.
Thank you for your review. Sand Castle is a very nice, big beach house. It is advertised as a 5 bedroom with a loft. If there is a group of 6 couples that want complete privacy, it would probably be a good idea to find a 6 bedroom house. That said, Sand Castle does offer plenty of space to spread out and mingle.
Excellent vacation home!
Our group of 6 adults and 6 kids (14.13,11,11,8,7) had a great week Sand Castle. We had four young girls sharing the bunk room and the two teens each in their own space on the top floor. The two masters with bath were luxurious. One couple slept upstairs and shared the bath with the teens but managed just fine. The house was clean and well equipped. We especially appreciated the starter paper products and the generous supply of beach towels. It was great to be able to walk out the door and be on the beach--no hauling gear any distance to set up for the day. We also liked the non-commercial setting with easy access to grocery stores and just over the bridge to busy St. Augustine. We have already recommended it to friends.
Thank you for staying at "Sand Castle". It is a very big, 5 bedroom (plus loft), 4.5 bath beach house. As mentioned, it offers plenty of space for everyone to spread out comfortably. The home owners did a $90,000 remodel in 2015, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. We look forward to having you back as our guests again!
Kept up to date, always clean, can't beat location
We have been using this property for 5 years, been with Wren Beach rentals longer than that. We will continue to use this house as it checks all the boxes. Appliances are always updated, especially washer, dryer and dishwasher. The ratio of bathrooms to bedrooms is excellent (and this is very hard to find in a beach house)House is spacious with excellent wifi, cable, and air conditioning! Easy to cook in and location is excellent to get to attractions easily. I could never write how much this property has meant to my family over the years, I highly recommend it to everyone! Thank you Wren Beach Rentals!
Thank you for your continued visits to "Sand Castle". We look forward to your return next year.
The Sand Castle fit our group of 16 comfortably. We stayed for a week and wished it could have been for longer. The house is very close to the beach and the view is outstanding! We woke to the sunrise over the ocean the first morning. The house feels very new and is tastefully furnished. Half our group dined in during our stay and found the kitchen well stocked with useful cookware. The grill and spare fridge and freezer came in handy too. Publix grocery store, less than 5 minutes down the road, was a huge convenience. Not a day was missed spent on the relatively private beach. We all had a blast boogie boarding the waves. The garage was full of a good collection of beach toys and boards. It was a little tight parking 5 cars, so we certainly made use of the 2 car garage. In the evening, we would sit on the deck and enjoy the breeze or play a game of billiards. Hopefully we can make it back next year. Many thanks to David Lombana for all of his accommodations.
We are so glad that you had a great time. "Sand Castle" is a very well appointed, and large house. We do our best to make sure it has everything you need for a great stay. We look forward to having you back again soon!
Sand Castle is located in South Ponte Vedra, 4 miles from historic St. Augustine and 20 miles from posh Ponte Vedra. We have several public golf courses within a 20 minute drive, and St, Augustine offers many different activities. Stroll the quaint shops on St. George Street or explore the antique shops and art galleries scattered throughout town. Tour the town by trolley or horse and buggy; don't miss the Alligator Farm, Ghost Tours, Lightner Museum, Fort Matanzas, and the many historical attractions!
If you love water sports, you have come to the right place! You can rent surf boards, jet skis, canoes, and other boats; you can go para sailing, hot air ballooning or fishing in the ocean or the Intracoastal Waterway!
In Ponte Vedra and Jacksonville, you can go horse back riding on the beach, take surfing lessons, visit the great Jacksonville Zoo, or take in a Jaguars game!
We have something for everyone--but most guests love our beach house the most! You may never want to leave!
