Loved this place!

  • 4 of 5

Sandcastle 506 is just as advertised. The unit is nicely decorated and furnished. The property has great amenities-- unbelievable beach, great pool and spa. Everything you need for a great vacation is right here. Helen is very easy to work with and very accommodating. Cable modem is outdated and had a few wifi issues, but was able to reset. Great place!

My Third Time!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time I have rented this condo. I keep saying I want to try somewhere else, but I keep coming back to Sandcastle I and Indian Shores! I've only been home a few weeks and I am already looking to book again for next year. The condo is clean, well-equipped and Helene is great to work with! Great views of the gulf and the pool. We love Tropical Ice Cream, Slyce Pizza Bar and the Frog Pond restaurant. Highly recommend!

T&K from MO

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful unit that will be great for most anybody. Well equipped, and operated by folk who want you to enjoy the stay! Had a couple of minor things, but was super impressed with how quickly they were resolved. Helen is on top of everything. Had multiple visits by kids and grand kids, and bedrooms accommodated us all. Sand Castle is not new, but everything about the property is spot on. From the pool to the outstanding beach, hard to not have a good time. Highly recommend!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly how it was depicted in the pictures. It was very clean and had everything we needed, and then some! Helen made the rental process easy and was a pleasure to rent from. The area was great for my family - very family-friendly and laid back, yet convenient to a lot of great places. If we're able to go back, we will definitely stay here again!

We loved the condo and location and it was perfect for my family and grandchildren. We went to a Phillies game in Clearwater and the Aquarium and the bird sanctuary. The owner is wonderful to work with and the condo has everything you need. Looking forward to visiting again.
