The sandcastle complexes are a bit old and rundown but that is what happens with age and sun. However the beaches are amazing, this is a great place to bring young children.lovely places to eat out around, and Publix is a great place to buy your groceries!

Hello snowlover883, Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. All of the Sand Castle buildings were built around the same time and do undergo regular maintenance (both the building exteriors and surrounding common areas) as needed. Condos are owned and maintained individually. If the particular condo you stayed in wasn’t quite what you had had in mind...

Condo was old and needs to be repaired. Hole in wall and stains on rug. The whole place never felt clean. Sliding door and shades did not work in the master bedroom. We paid for an ocean view and we received only half a view because of the broken door and shades. Then on the beach everyone was smoking and...

We take great pride in making sure our condos meet the expectations of our clients and immediately request our maintenance department to inspect all reported items. Thank you for your time.

Room 306 Sandcastle II. First, when we arrived the air conditioner would only go to 70 degree's as the lowest setting. I called Plumlee Gulf Beach Realty whom we rented the unit from and was told from the lady that she would change it over the phone to 68 degree's. When she said, she changed it the box never moved...

Thank you for taking the time, I am so sorry to hear about your frustrations. I hope to clarify a few things for you and future guests reading this post. First, it appears as though you booked this condo from the owner on VRBO, not Plumlee. Please remember Sandcastle condominiums are individually owned. For a list of the units Plumlee...

Loved the Sand Castle! Very spacious with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, big balcony, modern kitchen. Only negative was the living room furniture was not comfortable. Washer and dryer right in the condo! Would definitely stay there again. Good location!

Beautiful condo with every comfort of home imaginable. The decor is newly updated, and the mattresses were incredibly comfortable. It is obvious that the owner wanted to ensure the comfort of guests. The kitchen has all new, top of the line appliances, new cabinets, granite countertops, etc. The high efficiency washer and dryer are full size and also new. New...

We stayed for a full four weeks in this condo (Sandcastle 1, 3rd floor) and I am choosing to leave a review to help future vacationers decide if this is the right condo for them. I choose to leave 3 stars because I cannot choose between a 1 star review and a 5 star review. I'll give you both perspectives....

Stayed for a week with my family of 6 in PH 4 (top floor). The unit itself was very nice and completely remodeled and CLEAN! It fit us comfortably.
