Overview

About the property

7 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, Sleeps 35

NO EVENTS/WEDDINGS/RECEPTIONS ALLOWED AT THIS PROPERTY OR THE COMMUNITY COMMON AREAS.

CASTLE ON THE BEACH, a stately Gulf-front vacation rental, is not only the quintessential vacation home, it offers the perfect backdrop for a large family portrait, as well! The spacious 7 bedroom 6.5 bath, multi-level floor plan sleeps 35 comfortably, and offers spectacular Gulf views from every floor. A wall of glass doors and windows line the second story main living and dining area, giving way to an expansive view of sugar white sand and emerald green water, even a rainy day can't spoil the splendor! The living room has a relaxed feel with high ceilings, comfy furnishings and 55" flat screen television, making it the perfect gathering spot when you're ready to unwind indoors. The airy kitchen is attractive and functional for entertaining; a professional-size refrigerator, detached ice maker, dual ovens and a restaurant-grade cooler makes preparing meals for a crowd a not-so-daunting task. The dining area seats 12 comfortably at either the large glass top table or neighboring granite countertop bar. An extra capacity front-loading washer and dryer is available in the adjacent laundry room, where there is added counter space and storage there as well. Just off the large living area, the beautiful master suite has additional views of the Gulf and access to the porch, a king-size bed, a second 55" plasma television, and an office nook for those times when life is too busy to power down. The attached private bathroom has a large walk-in shower, dual vanities and an extra deep whirlpool tub. Upstairs are five additional bedrooms, four with king beds and private bathrooms, and three with balcony access and more Gulf views. Centrally located is the fifth bedroom which is nothing short of a young person's ultimate retreat! This room sleeps 14 and has a 50" television for gaming. What better place is there to be a kid! From the garage, you have access to the ground-level deck, boardwalk and outdoor shower. This area is perfect for dropping off sandy beach chairs and toys, and there is an extra washer and dryer so that those wet beach towels never make it to places they shouldn't. If that isn't enough, the garage houses a restaurant-grade ice machine and glass-front cooler. What better or more convenient way to hit the beach? Rather than dragging heavy coolers, you can bring a book instead! If you want to take a break from the beach, enjoy freshwater fishing in the neighborhood lake! Just outside the neighborhood activities and amenities abound! Located in the Gulf Pines gated community near Destin, Florida. Minutes from The Village of Baytowne Wharf, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, Silver Sands Factory Outlet Mall, Destin Commons, Big Kahuna's Water Park, and Harborwalk Village in Destin. Close to shopping, watersport rentals, family activities, and nightlife. Gulf Pines Rentals.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our very large family stayed in Castle on the Beach in July , 2014. The home was everything and more that was promised in the web site. We loved the beautiful living area which opened out to a large porch with lots of seating--- a perfect place for visiting and beach watching. The many bedrooms were all totally furnished with comfortable beds, furnishings and linens. The beach towels were so appreciated. There was an extra washer and dryer and very large ice maker --- great!!! The kitchen and large pantry were fully equipped. This was trully a great house and we hope to stay there again next year

I rented the castle on the beach property for my groomsmen and myself to stay in during my wedding weekend. The wedding was just up the beach at the Hilton Sandestin, so the location couldn't be better! The house was more than perfect and the management was great and very helpful. I will definitely be renting from them again!

Beautiful but Dirty home

  • 3 of 5

We rented the home for a family stay to attend a destination wedding. The home is beautiful and location perfect. However, it was very dirty upon arrival. There were dead bugs on a sticker on the doors, dirty vents, cob webs and ANTS! We had ants in everything in the kitchen and bathrooms. We called and exterminators were sent twice, however, they were in our food, dishes etc, we had to throw a lot of stuff away and they were see during the entire stay. Hector with Frangista properties was more than helpful. When he was gone though his boss was rude and did not return our calls or acknowledge our complaints. I think for the price we paid this home should be spotless on arrival. Another big concern is there is a note that says pull back covers on all used beds to be washed. Does this mean the other beds are not washed? Also, put towels you want washed in tub, shouldn't EVERYTHING be washed after guest leave for the new guest?? The basement apartment was dirty and had scuffs and marks on all the beams/walls. There is no way to know what was or wasn't used so I feel everything should be laundered. I would recommend the home itself based on location and design, however the management company is not very good. For just being updated this home needs a lot of TLC.

Owner's Response: Please disregard this review. This guest had several noise complaints from neighboring homes and we had to call them and tell them they would be evicted if we received another complaint. As you can imagine, nobody likes management after this phone call is made. Additionally, the exterminator went over the house twice because they were unable to find any "ants" in the home. Upon the guests departure, we did not see one single dead bug or cobweb. All of our linens and towels get removed from the home after departure and changed out with professionally cleaned replacements.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at the Castle on the beach for our Parents 50th wedding anniversary/family vacation. We had 5 different families stay at the house and we all had expectations and fears heading into this trip. I have to say that we had an amazing week at Castle on the Beach. Each family had there own room with a bathroom attached. This gave everyone the space they needed yet allowed us all to be together. The kids all got to stay in the bunk-bed-room. Staying right on the beach was AMAZING! It was easy for everyone to walk the 30 seconds down to the water to join for a day of sun, sand and waves! Walking down each day to chairs and umbrellas already set up had us worrying about one less thing and enjoying things that much faster. The house was the right size and had everything we could ask for. Truth be told, the house is a little dated but that didn’t take away one bit from the fun we had, memories we created or time we all got to spend together. All in all the house was perfect!!! We even hired a chef to come in one night to make a nice dinner for the 11 adults to enjoy and celebrate. The meal was amazing and allowed the kids to play in the comfort of the home while the adults enjoyed a fantastic dinner celebrating our parents. We were VERY happy staying at the Castle on the Beach and look forward to staying again in the future!!
