Perfect Family Getaway
From the beginning, renting this property was easy and exactly what we expected. All of our questions were answered timely and with enough detail. The property itself was in good condition and contained everything we needed to enjoy a winter getaway at the beach for 15. Check in and out was straight forward with no surprises. The location was perfect, with ample parking for 5 cars and a short drive to Publix grocery for last minute needs. We catered from Publix to avoid the need to cook, however, the kitchen and appliances seemed well stocked and fully functional. Our only suggestion would be to update the pool table. We had fun with it, however, the balls would often fall out of the pockets and some angles were hard to achieve with the wall proximity. The beach was fantastic and just warm enough in December to still enjoy water fun and sandy relaxation. The large back deck and master bedrooms with big windows provided the experience we were after and was complete with dolphins and shooting stars. Everyone was talking about coming back next year. Perfect and well worth it!
Thank you for staying at Sand Castle. We are so glad that you had a great time. Also, thank you for pointing out the note about the pockets on the pool table. We have already had them repaired. As for the size of the table, not much we can do about that!
Everything you need to enjoy the beach. Very nice decor.
Sand Castle was the ideal spot for my family to celebrate life
We loved staying here! It was spacious- plenty of room for us all. It was well stocked with towels, chairs, bedding, and beach toys and we were pleased with the extra refrigerator in the garage. The fireplace was a total bonus. We will be back!!
Thank you for staying with us at Sand Castle. We are very glad that you had a great time. The home owner has done a great job making sure the house offers everything our guests could need at the house. We look forward to having you back again soon!
Wren Beach Rentals
We had a great time, the house was beautiful.
Very spacious and directly on the water. We really enjoyed ourselves!
We had a wonderful time at the Sand Castle. The house was able to sleep all 15 of us, plenty of towels and beach towels. We cooked all of our meals there, only minor problems with adequate cookware. The problem in the kitchen was the water leaking under the sink, it has been happening for some time. . The door stop on the deck did not have the rubber piece on it, was a hazard to my feed. The beach access steps were a challange for my husband and I. We are in our 70's. I understand the storm did the damage, but a better replacement is needed. Everyone loved the house and voted to have it again next year. I need to know that better beach access has been built before I book it again. The house and furniture were great. Need minor repairs to be made.
Fantastic Beach Get Away!
Once again Wren Beach Rentals came through with a wonderful home to spend a long weekend with my family. The Sandcastle property is a beautiful home with all the amenities we were looking for. Every year we try to get away for a long weekend in January with my brothers and sister and their spouses (6 couples) in the Ponte Vedra area. We desire to spend as much quality time together as we can so we stay in and prepare all our meals at the house. Sandcastle is very well supplied with all kitchen utensils and plenty of seating for meals with our big group. We enjoyed spending hours on the back deck fellowshipping while looking at the beautiful ocean (even saw a whale pass by one day several times). The property was very clean and well-maintained just like it looks on the website. The only negative was that we had six couples and it really is a five bedroom house plus a loft with two twins. It was not very private for the couple in the loft but we are a close family so it wasn't that big of a deal. Overall it was great and I would definitely recommend it to friends.
Thank you for your review. Sand Castle is a very nice, big beach house. It is advertised as a 5 bedroom with a loft. If there is a group of 6 couples that want complete privacy, it would probably be a good idea to find a 6 bedroom house. That said, Sand Castle does offer plenty of space to spread out and mingle.
Sand Castle is located in South Ponte Vedra, 4 miles from historic St. Augustine and 20 miles from posh Ponte Vedra. We have several public golf courses within a 20 minute drive, and St, Augustine offers many different activities. Stroll the quaint shops on St. George Street or explore the antique shops and art galleries scattered throughout town. Tour the town by trolley or horse and buggy; don't miss the Alligator Farm, Ghost Tours, Lightner Museum, Fort Matanzas, and the many historical attractions!
If you love water sports, you have come to the right place! You can rent surf boards, jet skis, canoes, and other boats; you can go para sailing, hot air ballooning or fishing in the ocean or the Intracoastal Waterway!
In Ponte Vedra and Jacksonville, you can go horse back riding on the beach, take surfing lessons, visit the great Jacksonville Zoo, or take in a Jaguars game!
We have something for everyone--but most guests love our beach house the most! You may never want to leave!
