Just steps from Ocean Hammock Golf Course, our designer home, Eagle Castle, is perfect for your vacation. With huge windows, hardwood floors, a wrap-around porch, and 2 master bedrooms, it's luxurious living just 4 blocks from the beach! <br/><br/>Eagle Castle brings you the comfort of a big family home with a beautifully landscaped yard, plus the convenience of a beach location! Beautiful, family-friendly Cinnamon Beach with its coquina-shell sands is just a 5-minute walk away, so whenever you aren't teeing up, pop down to the wide, lovely beach and ride the surf, collect shells and sharks' teeth at low tide, build sandcastles, f...ly kites, or simply lie with your toes in the cool, refreshing water and let the sun and sea work their magic! <br/><br/>When it's time to go home, cool down immediately among the lush greenery of Eagle Castle's big backyard. Rinse off in our outdoor shower, then turn the kids loose to use up the last of their energy running around outside while you toss steaks and seafood onto the grill. At Eagle Castle, you can live like a native, far from the tourist traps and cramped hotel rooms!<br/><br/>Enjoy the balmy weather and soothing sea breezes from the comfort of our wrap-around screened-in porch! You'll find outdoor dining space here for 8, a gas grill, rocking chairs, and soothing views in all directions. One of the best things about Eagle Castle is that we own the adjacent lot as well, so you have no close neighbors -- not to mention plenty of space to park your boat, RV, and beach toys! <br/><br/>Step inside the house and you realize that the first floor is composed almost entirely of windows. It's almost a treehouse effect, with the lush garden just beyond the wrap-around porch. What a great way to stay cool in the summer -- and a single glance is refreshing! <br/><br/>Our large open-plan living area is filled with comfy leather chairs and footstools, an ultra-luxurious couch long enough for a good mid-afternoon nap, and a huge HDTV with DVD player and VCR. The dining area is just beyond, with a handsome wood table easily seating 8. The floors are heart-of-pine, the rugs soft on bare feet, and the lighting relaxing. You're home!<br/><br/>The first-floor living area isn't the only place to relax indoors at Eagle Castle. There is a bonus room on the second floor with a large TV. So if the kids want to watch a favorite program or there's a big game on that conflicts with the rest of the group's epic Monopoly battle at the dining room table, everyone can do just what they want and no one has to lower their voices!<br/><br/>The kitchen is a gourmand's dream, with stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and a travertine backsplash. Want to turn the catch of the day into an elegant meal? You'll find everything you need here, down to the filet knives and skillets. Even if you're planning to eat out (and you should; there are great restaurants just minutes away!), you'll love the microwave, coffee maker, water and ice in the door of the refrigerator, and other time-savers.<br/><br/>The official master suite is also located on the first floor, but if you're traveling with another family, don't bother to flip that coin -- there's another king-size bed upstairs! The first-floor master bedroom contains a king bed, a cable TV, and a walk-in closet, plus his-and-her sinks and a walk-in shower in the master bath The second-floor master is equally roomy and pleasant, and there is a big third bedroom containing 2 twin beds, each of which conceals a trundle. <br/><br/>Eagle Castle contains another full bathroom as well as a half-bath, and all of the linens, pillows, blankets, and towel sets you'll need are provided, as well as a washer and dryer to keep those swimsuits and golf shirts fresh.<br/><br/>You will love the location, design, and pure comfort of Eagle Castle, a family house with a designer flair. Indoors and out, it invites family fun and utter relaxation. Come discover the pleasure of beach living beside the golf course! Eagle Castle is waiting for you.Read more
Eagle Castle is a really lovely home. We loved the screened in porch and make great use of the fantastic kitchen. The only negative was being 1/2 mile from the beach but it really is only a short car ride away with easy access. I would recommend definitely recommend this property to families or groups of friends.

We loved Eagle Castle. The house was beautiful and felt brand new. The kitchen had everything we needed. The bathrooms were spacious and modern. We also loved the screened porch. The weather was perfect. The walk to the beach was actually about 15 minutes so we drove down. The beach was beautiful but there were many large rocks in some parts so we had to be careful. We would definitely stay at Eagle Castle again!

Eagle's Nest was a wonderful experience...nearly all amenities had been addressed...the kitchen was well equipped, the appliances were top-notch and it was a dream to work in, the beds extremely comfortable, the walk-in shower was awesome, etc. There were no cleaning supplies provided, though, with the exception of a vacuum. Unfortunately, the house was not in a very clean condition when we arrived - the bathroom floors were very dirty and showed obvious signs of being used, the counters had dried substances on them, some of the dishes in the cabinet were still dirty (probably the fault of the previous renters), the windows were filthy, there was dog kibble still strewn all over the porch, etc. It took quite a while to have most of our concerns addressed after we reported them...the refrigerator filter was never replaced even after 6 weeks of notice. But, overall, we were extremely pleased with the property itself. It is obvious that the owners are very thoughtful and considerate people - almost any need had been provided for, including beach towels, chairs and umbrellas, games and puzzles, reading material, etc. Location was great - only 1/2 mile from the beach and we felt very private, even though neighbors were right next door. The new Publix was way too close...we spent a fortune there!! Overall, it was a dream come true!!!

As soon as we pulled up to the house, we were delighted. The house itself was beautiful, but the fact that it was "secluded" with all the trees, yet so close to the road, walking/bike trails/ocean was what really made this property just what we were looking for. Was quiet, peaceful, very comfortable. We had so many "comforts of home" - the owner did an awesome job of furnishing and stocking the home for quests. We hated to leave, but alas, we had to return to real life. : ) We'd love to stay again !
Amazing Family Retreat. Peaceful Location close to EVERYTHING!

Just spent a glorious week in this amazing beach home. House is very stylish and comfortable. The owners thought of everything to make you feel right at home. Short walk to beach, grocery store right around the corner and many attractions near by. I can't say enough about this lovely home and it's beautiful landscaping. Surrounded by trees, you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. So very peaceful!
Loved the tropical setting, beautiful fully stocked kitchen, and

Only negative comments would be: no hot water in the kitchen or in the master bath/shower on the first floor, water would not get hot, only cool or lukewarm. Also, no instructions for the aV equipment, took awhile to figure out that to watch cable tv had to have the TV set on Video 4.

Fantastic property, well maintained, good location, perfect for our group with vacant lot next door for parking of extra vehicles and trailers. Our group had no complaints and would definitely recommend this vacation property for a family vacation or a couples retreat!
