We stayed at this house in mid-March and enjoyed our stay immensely. The house is quite relaxing and the view is unreal. Nothing felt better than sitting on the deck in the morning, drinking a coffee, watching the sun come up and listening to the waves crashing. I got sunburned...but that's my fault. :-)

A memorable family vacation at Sand Castle

  • 5 of 5

Our large family of 9 adults and 2 children traveled to Vero Beach from Maryland, Virginia, Massachusetts and Peru to celebrate Grandpa's 95th birthday in mid-Feb. What a super decision we made to rent this spacious and lovely oceanfront home that afforded us the comfort of socializing with Grandpa in a relaxing environment and the privacy of 4 separate bedrooms with very comfortable beds for sleeping at night! The ocean view is amazing, and the semi-private sandy beach is just steps away from the wrap-around deck. The house is artistically decorated and thoughtfully outfitted with anything you could possible need or want: cable TV, DVDs, books, board games, a welcoming bottle of wine on the bar, lots of dishes, cooking utensils, spices, coffee pot and coffee, paper towels and TP, cleaning products, laundry soap and dryer sheets, bath soap, shampoo, hair dryers, tons of bath and beach towels, beach chairs & toys, fishing rods, water shoes, and even boxes of sparklers! The kids loved playing ping pong and chess, and they walked on the beach a short way to the Disney Resort for the Saturday morning Character Breakfast. We shopped at the nearby Publix grocery and cooked all our meals at home except for Grandpa's birthday dinner at the Italian Grill. Sand Castle's owner could not have been more gracious and responsive to our questions. We would definitely return to stay at this very comfortable home again. Thank you, Valerie, for a wonderful family vacation that we shall remember for many years to come!

We keep coming back to Sandcastle

  • 5 of 5

Another great, relaxing time spent at this beautiful, fun beach house. This was our 5th time staying here and it just keeps getting better. Plenty of room. Comfortable beds and couches and chairs. All you need are your clothes and food. This home offers everything. Loved the new floor in basement and the other upgrades. If you want to fall asleep listening to the ocean waves, then this is your house. We love sitting on the deck most days and evenings. Grilling out listening to the ocean. The owners are so easy to work with take great care of this home. The Summerplace area is so quiet and laid back. I can't say enough about this great place. The beach is literally 20 steps away, onto a secluded beach. Plenty of parking as we take 2 bass boats and fish at Stickmarsh and we have plenty of room for parking. Can't wait to be back again next year!

Amazing Comfortable Clean Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was my families second stay during Christmas/New Years at this wonderful beach house. The house is extremely clean and comfortable, beds are so comfortable, and you can hear the ocean waves put you to sleep. The new stairs down to the beach was a nice addition. The large deck is so relaxing, as we spent all of our days and late evenings just sitting, enjoying the sounds of the ocean. The owners of this house are so extremely nice and easy to work with. This house is so welcoming and fun, and has everything and more than anyone needs. All you need to do is bring your clothes and food, the house has the rest. We enjoyed the ping pong table and board games. The house is decorated with some beautiful artwork as well. I just can't express enough how much I enjoy this beach house, but mostly because it is just so comfortable and relaxing. Don't look any further because this is your dream vacation home at the beach. Enjoy! Can't wait to return as soon as I can!!

Family Vacay!

  • 4 of 5

My family recently stayed here. My husband and I, my mother and father, and my sister, her husband and little girl who is 2. We had a great time and there was plenty of space in the house. They provide a lot of beach accessories. There is no beach access from the property, but there is private access for residents of summer place on the side of both neighbors. Very short walk, which was not really a big inconvenience like I thought it would be. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for anyone who doesn't like crowded beaches.

Family Summer Vacation in Florida

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying here. The house was comfortable, clean, and provided us with an at home atmosphere. The location was great as we traveled to Orlando for day and evening outings. It was great to return each day to a very relaxing and peaceful night rest. We did journey around the city and found it to be a pleasant area with a few unique shops. Our evenings spent at the house were enjoyable. Would highly recommend a stay at this house. Thank you to the owner. It was a wonderful summer vacation for our family.
