Castle in the Sand East by Edward 03/31/2018
he house was absolutely perfect for a week’s vacation with our best friends and all our kiddos! The kitchen/family room/and pool area provided great hangout spots when we wanted to be together and all the bedrooms and upstairs tv area were great when we were in need of a bit of separation. Very appreciative of the beach chairs &boogie boards that were provided as well!
Beautiful, Spacious Beachfront Home!! by Summer S 03/28/2018
This was our second time at Castle in the Sand East, and it was all we remembered and more! It is such a beautiful, spacious home, with all the amenities of being at your own home. Greg was great with sending helpful information for the area, and he helped right away if we needed any thing at all. We were a group of 22, (10 were children) and there was more than enough room for everyone to spread out. Every detail about the house, from the great kitchen & finishes, to the swimming pool & private beach access, to the multiple master suites...completely sets this home apart from the others we looked into. We visited The Hangout, FlorAbama and Tacky Jacks, and enjoyed them all. We hope to visit again one day!
Castle in the Sand East by L.B 03/06/2018
It was absolutely perfect! The house itself and the location are literally what anyone could hope for. I've had plenty of folks asking about it so they can rent it for their own vacations, including home of the guests that stayed with me over the weekend! Thank you again. We will be back for sure!
Perfect by Liz W. 02/28/2018
To sum up the house in one word I would say ama zing. The place looks exactly like the pictures.
Everything was excellent by Johnny F 08/19/2017
We had a great time the house was great definitely thinking about visiting again in the future!!
Truly Enjoy this home! by James 11/19/2016
We all agreed that we truly enjoyed our stay at castle in the sand east. The home is exactly as advertised. Our group loved the location of this house, the layout, furnishings, and views!! The large glass windows allowed us to have incredible unobstructed gulf views from almost anywhere inside the home. The home was very clean upon arrival and had detailed instructions on what we were asked to do upon departing so the next guests would have a pleasant stay also.

We have visited several homes along the coast, but this home seemed to have it all! The location was AWESOME and the layout of the bedrooms and balconies allowed everyone to spread out when needed. We hope to travel back soon. The pool and boardwalk were also very convenient and laid out nicely.
Magnificent Location by N.A. USA 11/12/2016
Greg we had the best time at this residence.

The number of rooms and the layout of the main level accomplished everything we wanted it to do with the 5 families we had there.

The kitchen was conducive for us having a ton of fun making meals together.

The pool was simply wonderful to be able to enjoy.

We all had a wonderful time there.

You have a beautiful facility on a magnificent location.

I am sure you will make loads of families very happy going forward.

Thanks again for a wonderful time
Everyone enjoyed this home! by Harry 10/15/2016
My entire family, including my parents who are in their 70's, very much enjoyed our stay at Castle! Grandma and pops loved the bedroom on the bottom floor, and the kids loved their stay in the bunk beds (which are big enough for adults if needed) and swimming in the private pool! The boardwalk over the dunes to the gulf is awesome. We could pack up all of our belongings for a beach day and conveniently take everything across the boardwalk to the beach. The open floor plan allowed our whole family to gather together downstairs to eat with plenty of room. We never felt overly crowded, and it was easy to have your own space because of how many bedrooms there are. We were all sad when the trip came to an end. Great times in a great home!
Absolutely Perfect! by Crystal A 08/20/2016
This house is just perfect! Everything inside and out is beautiful and clean! We were there for a week with 4 other families, all with young children and we loved the house! The pool was one of the best features, while kids were napping we could use our monitors and hang out by the pool! We hardly ever even saw the people that were staying on the other side, it never felt like a duplex! I cannot say enough great things about this property!
Great family vacation by Brenda E 07/23/2016
24 family members stayed at Castle in the Sand east this summer. The house was absolutely gorgeous!!! The pictures do not due it justice. Beautifully decorated and very clean. All the emenities you could want or need. Perfect location. Love this house!!!!!
Perfect Vacation Home! by Margaret 06/18/2016
Perfect Vacation Home!

5 of 5
After going to Gulf Shores for twenty years, we have finally found the perfect beach house for our large, extended family. Castle in the Sand is beautifully decorated and well-equipped with everything needed. There are five master suites with their own bathrooms and four other bedrooms, two of which are bunk rooms--perfect for our grandchildren. The kitchen is great, with two dishwashers, two refrigerators and plenty of dishes and utensils for cooking if you decide to eat in. If you want to eat out, there are plenty of nice restaurants within ten minutes of the house. The house is right on the beach, with a walkway out to the beach. And there aren't any houses nearby, so it's like a private beach. The pool is perfect for a large family, and the views from the house are spectacular. I highly recommend this fantastic house--we have already reserved it for our family reunion next May.

Amazing home by Ina NW Arkansas 05/14/2016
This house was amazing. From the layout, furnishings, decor, double appliances, multiple king bedrooms with a view, private pool with ocean front location, and most importantly a Christian atmosphere......who could ask for more. We were blown away from the moment we stepped into this home. I have never stayed at a vacation home that was so well thought out and equipped. We had an amazing time and are already talking about booking for next year.
A Blessing on the beach!! by Pat Chicago Area 03/19/2016
We had an absolutely fabulous vacation thanks to this house and its location. The home is gorgeous, well equipped and situated right on the beach. The King suites with private baths and private balconies facing the beach were a huge hit. The kitchen was amazing. The 2 refrigerators, 2 dishwashers, 2 ovens and other amenities made meals and clean up so much easier for our group of 17. The heated pool was a wonderful treat for the 10 kids. The beach is just steps away and was amazing. Shopping and restaurants were convenient to the location. We had an amazing time and have already booked the home for next year.
Castle in the sand East by Alabama Guests 07/11/2015
My family simply loved the Castles and were clamoring for me to book before we departed. The thing I loved most about the Castle was the location of the pool on the deck - We could watch the grands in the pool and on the beach at the same time

What I also loved about the Castle was the layout of the bedrooms . The hallways made each bedroom so private ! You could walk the halls and never see into anyone's room
The BEST home we have ever rented!! by Judith B 06/20/2015
My family had the best vacation ever!!!Everyone was so happy with the castle in the sand east. You thought of everything.We have never stayed in a house so well equipped for a large group. The decor was beautiful.It had a wonderful Kitchen and a table large enough that we could eat our meals together.The pool was a great size to cool off after a big beach day.Our neighbors were great and we had several volleyball games together. I would give this place 10 stars and recommend it to everyone I know. Thanks for wonderful week in your awesome place.
Already Rebooked for next year! by Tom from TX 05/16/2015
The pictures don't do this home justice, we can't say enough good things about it!! There isn't one thing I would change , this is the best location for any beach house we have ever stayed! It's convient to Gulf Shores, in the heart of Orange Beach and Pensecola is only 15-20 minutes away! We drove over there and bought fresh fish from a great local fish market Greg recommeded.

We are not big partiers or drinkers at all, but we did enjoy walking down to the Flora-Bama at sunset and grabbing a drink and listening to some music , then heading home for a glass of wine by the heated pool, while the men cooked out on the gas grill.

We would then retire to the den for a movie and the kids would go upstairs to watch a movie in their den.

We loved the location, ALL the nice amenities , and the location simply can not be beat!! We are go glad the condos weren't build on this lot and that the owners decided to rebuild a residential house !!

Thanks again Greg, looking forward to next year..
Stunning Gulf Front Home by Georgia 04/11/2015
In years past we have rented 3 condos.Not this year!! We all stayed together and had more than enough room!! We loved the home and it is better than advertised!! All the beds are nice and VERY comfortable, the TVs are incredible, and the overall decor of the home is nicer than iv ever seen in a rental home along Alabamas gulf coast! The heated pool was amazing, my family enjoyed it every day, the pool water averaged 84.7 degrees, which is more than warm enough this time of year. The views are incredible also, we could see water out of every bedroom! Overall, there isn't a negative thing about this home, we all loved it and hope to be back next year.
Awesome Beach Wedding!! by L.C. from KS 04/11/2015
Greg

Just wanted to let you know the wedding was perfect.

The bride was beautiful and the groom was handsome

And both were appropriately nervous. This house

Was PERFECT ! We were able to accommodate

40 on one side of the deck for the reception dinner.

The other side we set up as a small bar area with

Conversation areas for after dinner.

Betty and I have photos we will send later.

The caterer. And the lady who helped us with

Our chair and table rentals were all of the same

Opinion that this was the most perfect beach house

For a wedding. The double executive kitchens

Made everything so convenient.

We can't thank you enough for helping make this

Such a perfect occasion.

Even our caterer said he had done

(Ships Harbour Grill) a lot

Of these events and this was one

Of the best arrangements

He had worked.
Better than advertised!! by S.J. from TN 03/14/2015
Our family recently visited this amazing property for a week in early March and it was one of the most enjoyable family trips we have had in years. The home was clean and the furniture , accesories and appliances were not only brand new ,but also very high end , especially for a rental property. All the bedrooms were very spacious and the layout of the home is perfect. It reallys allows everyone to spread out. There was another group on the west side of the home and we didn't even know they were over there. It's truely like two separate houses that share a parking lot out front.

The heated pool was amazing as well, our kids loved being able to swim. The water wasn't "hot" ,but was plenty warn enough to swim in , and without the heater, there is noway our kids would have entered the pool.(at least not for long)

All the rooms have large tvs and direct tv. We loved this home and can't wait to hopefully visit again real soon!!

Thanks for a great stay Greg!
design freak by Design Freak Montgomery, Al Southern USA 02/14/2015
If you only have one beach vacation this year choose this property! Not only is it gorgeous, the owners have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. The beds are great, the bathrooms better than mine at home and the kitchen... well that's a story in itself. I don't like to cook when I'm on vacation but with a kitchen like that, I would have to make an exception. It was too cold and rainy for swimming but a private heated pool overlooking the beach- my kind of relaxing! Ask them to leave you a list of restaurants in the area. There are some great ones! Enjoy.
