My family stayed at Sandcastle Penthouse during the first week of May and enjoyed every minute. The Penthouse was comfortable and have a wonderful view of the Gulf. It was our second year visiting.
We stayed in this condo during spring break (03/16-03/26). We were a little worried about the condition of the unit after reading the reviews. But we were super excited about the view. I would say the condo met our expectations. The view is amazing. The balcony is very roomy with ample nice furniture. The unit itself was pretty much what we expected, very dated. However, everything worked and the unit was as clean as could be. The sofa bed in the den definitely needs a new mattress. It was brutal. The sliding doors (both) need replaced. We had a storm while we were there and I was a little afraid with the wind that they were not going to make it. Overall, everything inside the unit needs replaced, but that didn't not affect our stay at all. We knew what we were getting into. We had a great time and loved spending time on the balcony each morning and evening. If you stay in this unit, please note that the extra beach chairs are in the closet on the balcony, not in the laundry room as we were told. The door to the closet on the balcony is hard to open. Turn the handle the opposite way and pull hard. We figured this out AFTER we spent $100 on new beach chairs.
I have stayed in this condo 6 times already!! Each time it has been clean and comfortable with amazing views! It really feels like our second home..we know where everything is. Yea sure it may be a little outdated but who cares. It is on the beach and the sunsets are celebrated each night with days by the shore. We are barely in the condo except for a good nights sleep (by the way the bed is amazingly comfortable as are the pillows). When you go away you want to feel as though you are truly somewhere else and the beachy furniture which may be a bit outdated is perfect for that! The washer and dryer worked fine for us and we never closed the drapes even on the sunlight because the condo was always cool and we wanted to see the ocean from the top floor 24/7!!
The only thing - the last two times have had way more children than usual which did present a lot of noise for us oldsters. Even late into the evening (11:00-midnight) They were having a great time but the pool and hot tub are basically unusable due to the amount of children. It was ok - we just went on the beach but it would have been nice to enjoy the pool area as well.
I highly recommend this condo - it has always been a thrill for me!
Thank you for the use of the penthouse. The building is situated in an ideal area and it was very nice and clean. The furniture was updated and comfortable.
The view itself was priceless, sitting in the living room, master bedroom or on the terrace, there was an unstructured view of the gulf and the sunsets.
It was in driving distance to Universal, we drove there three times and it's a short drive to Clear Water Beach. But, let me make it clear that our beach was clean and we enjoyed swimming there too.
We are planning on returning next year!
Condo location is great, overlooks pool and beach, condo was clean upon arrival, it just needs a little help. Comforter on King bed stained, needs replaced, not a good first impression, plastic cover on mattress, made you sweat, found mattress pad, put it on, helped somewhat. The TV's.....REALLY!!!!! Need to get into the 21st century. Need new ironing board cover, keeps
falling off ironing board. Overall, nice condo, great location, would come back again.
This condo is in a great location. It is within walking distance of several restaurants and convenient to shopping areas. The beach is wide and, even on the busiest days, the beach was never too crowded. The balcony provided amazing views. The condo was quiet and restful. However, I wish I had read the above comment prior to renting this condo.
This condo is in desperate need of a serious cleaning and needs major updating. The furnishings are very outdated. I felt like I was re-living the '70's.
Upon arrival, we found the kitchen floor dirty. The cupboards were dirty inside & out. Dirty dishes & glasses we're put away in the cupboards. There were hairs in the silverware tray. I spent 3 hours cleaning the kitchen on our first night of vacation. We were not provided with any cleaning supplies so I did the best I could with dish soap & hot water. The automatic soap dispenser in the dishwasher didn't work so we struggled with that.
The entire condo had a stale odor about it. I bought several air fresheners which helped remedy the situation.
The bathroom door did not close all the way which was a source of embarrassment when we had visitors. The tile baseboards in the bathroom looked like they had never been cleaned. There was hair on the bathroom floor & in the shower stall in the master bathroom. The shower was full of mold & mildew. We wore our flip-flops in the shower. I was embarrassed for our visitors to see it. The toilet seat in the master bathroom was cracked & stained. Time to buy new towels...the old ones are threadbare.
The TVs are antiques and the pictures were awful. They really need to be updated into the 21st century.
The window in the 2nd bedroom didn't open forcing us to put on the a/c when it really wasn't necessary if we could have just opened the window.
It would have been nice if we had been provided with a key for the restrooms by the pool. Instead,we had to come all the way up to the condo to use the bathroom, while other guests had keys for the restrooms by the pool.
I would suggest a major renovation for this worn out condo and also suggest changing cleaning companies.
I would definitely rent a condo in Sandcastle II again, but not this condo.
