We have been coming here for 3 years now and plan on coming for many more. The condo is absolutely perfect, has everything you could possibly want/need. The owner, Pam Carpentier is such a lovely lady and always willing to make herself available to answer any questions or address any issues you may have. I have found other condos in the the same property for a little less, but I will not go anywhere else but here.

Very comfortable and roomy condo with everything you need in a home away from home. A lot of extra's like beach toys and chairs, etc.. Had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay! The location is fantastic. Great beach view from the balcony. This was our fourth stay here and we keep finding more great restaurants near by. We're hoping to get back again this year!

We had a wonderful time and we didn't want to leave!!!! The condo was super nice and very clean. It was set up as if it was your own home with untensil's, pots, plates, beach chairs, roiling cooler, toys and even a tool kit. The air condition worked great but the master bedroom would get a little warm during the day. The pool area and spa could use a little upgrade but the 2 gas grills came in very handy. I'm glad we stayed in the Indian Shores area because it was relaxing and not as crowded as Clearwater. The only complaint we had was against Mother Nature because it rained all 7 days we were there and we only got to enjoy the beach 3 days out of 7 days. A local said that June & July was the rainy season for that area. All in all, we would definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking for a nice relaxing place to stay.
Great Ocean Front beach condo to enjoy with family - close walk to the beach - very clean condo - great views - beautiful clean pool -many restaurants to eat from - high end upgraded condo We have very high expectations and Pam meets them all. Condo is very nicely updated and high end. The pictures from the condo is what you get and has very close access to the beach and pool which is nice for younger kids. Pam got back to us with all the questions we asked almost immediately and was very helpful to make our stay wonderful. My son also lost his favorite snoopy doll that was recovered and will be sent back to us. Overall, my family and I look forward to making memories each and every year here.

I am a fifth generation Florida native so have a great deal of experience at Florida beaches. This condo is my perfect match for a beach vacation. Start with the balcony. To me, a true beach vacation absolutely must have a nice balcony directly looking at the beach and close enough to hear the surf. There are surprising few of these available and this condo is perfect. Second is the pool and jacuzzi which is a must for winter enjoyment and a slight for summer. Third is the unit itself. This unit was completely modernized and fully equipped. Finally, the management....totally nice, professional, thorough. Bottom line, we will definitely return.Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Families with Teenagers.
My family and I had such a wonderful and memorable vacation staying at the Sand Castle II. The condo was absolutely gorgeous and a perfect fit for my family with small children. The bedrooms were very spacious & beds SUPER comfortable, the bathrooms were updated and very clean, and the kitchen had all new appliances and all you would need to cook in. The view from the balcony was beautiful and the beach toys/chairs are an added bonus!! Pam, the property manager, was very easy to talk to and replied to emails/phone calls in a timely manner. I would highly recommend this property to anyone and looking forward to coming back in the future!

I was so lucky to find this condo on VRBO. Always a little bit apprehensive of what a person would ultimately get on a privately owned condo instead of doing the usual hotels but I could not have been more pleased. The condo my family stayed in was Sandcastle II Condos. This particular condo was so clean and absolutely had everything we needed to truly enjoy our stay away from our own homes. Making the necessary arrangements with the owner could not have been easier. The pictures shown of this condo were spot on and actually much lovelier in person than the pictures portrayed. My husband and I took my elderly parents on this trip as it was their first trip to Florida and to the ocean. My parents LOVED this condo and truly felt at home and actually said time flew by too fast and were sad to leave. The kitchen was equipped with everything to feed a family on the days and nights we did not feel like cooking. Nice flat screen tvs were in all the bedrooms and all had very comfortable beds. The living room was nice and cozy although we didn't spend too much time in it. We spent a lot of time on the oversized balcony overlooking the beautiful ocean for the sunsets enjoying the company of one another. Another big plus for me was that the owner has beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas for our use at the beach. My husband and I come to Florida almost every year and I usually rent those items so it was truly appreciated all these items were available for use. We even used the tools provided to make a sand castle at the beach! Across the street is "The Pub" which is a very nice restaurant and bar just steps away when we wanted to cool off with a drink or night cap. We rented kayaks just across the street as well. On prior vacations, we have spent time on St. Pete's Beach but I just love how calm and quiet it is on this particular beach and was honestly was one of the most relaxing vacations I have ever been on. My husband and I want to eventually move to Florida but until then, I will call and reserve this particular condo for future vacations. I usually am not good to getting down and writing a review but wanted to make sure the owner knew how much we enjoyed this particular condo.Recommended for: People with Disabilities, Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Romantic GetAWAY
