Hi! We're Janice & Bill, both ex-Corporate Professionals, recently retired...and have lived in this area for 20+ years; prior to this home we lived just a few blocks away. We purchased this Duplex to a) enjoy the beach and general area ourselves (as we live in the Upstairs unit), and b) provide a vacation rental (Downstairs) that we could oversee ourselves, offering something "better than the rest", with more personal service. We love to travel ourselves, and our idea was to provide MORE to our guests in terms of a warm, clean, well decorated, well maintained rental, and we modeled it after what we most enjoy - and expect - when we travel.

The Sandcastle was just the right setting for our family gathering of 6 from around the country. Also good space for a dinner party for 9 of us. The kitchen was superbly equipped with ample dishes for our grilled artichoke, porterhouse steak and strawberry shortcake dinner, from preparation, to grilling to serving. Wonderful big sofa for collapsing after arduous days of beach walking.
