Sand Castle, Beach, Hot Tub, HDTVs, 2 Pools, 2 Spas, Gym, Wifi
Description from the manager
Entertain yourself and your guests at our Cinnamon Beach Sand Castle home for 10 guests. Sand Castle provides a resort experience in a beautifully landscaped gated community. A 2-3 minute walk takes you to the exquisite Cinnamon Beach and the resort style pools and entertainment center - including a grill café, game rooms, and a fitness center. <br/><br/>Recently refurnished and re-carpeted, this four bedroom home, including two master bedrooms and a chef's kitchen, provides the perfect setting for a family vacation. Enjoy breakfast on the second floor terrace overlooking the lake, often while watching pelicans diving for fish. Sip a glass of wine while enjoying views in a screened-in large lanai with an extra-large hot tub, a summer kitchen and outdoor grill designed for entertainment. Your children will love exploring the fenced back yard.<br/><br/>Arrive to find that this stress-free vacation unfolds all on its own. Totally private, with riveting water views, tropical plants and palms, your festive mood will really take flight. There is plenty of parking in the 2-car garage and wide driveway, next to which a charming staircase leads to the covered front door. <br/><br/>The second floor is the main living area featuring soaring ceilings with ceiling fans. Its expansive windows and glass doors provide panoramic views of the lake from every room. The second floor living room, newly refurnished in cool colors, includes a new 50" HD LCD TV. You will love the amazing lake views from this beautiful room and its spacious terrace. A second family room on the first floor includes a large HDTV and allows children to have all the space they need for imaginative play. This room opens to the screened-in lanai, spa, and summer kitchen allowing great indoor-outdoor entertaining. <br/><br/>The gourmet chef's kitchen insists that, while here, you'll live to eat. Open to the rest of the living area, the kitchen really is the heart of this home - a natural gathering point with great views of the lake. It invites and accommodates everyone. Huge granite counters wrap around to face both the living and dining areas. There's even a tri-vection oven (for regular, convection and speed heat), plus stainless steel appliances and a large custom pantry - everything you need. A massive breakfast bar is one place to eat, while the formal dining table seats eight. Both the screened lanai and 2nd-floor terrace have dining tables.<br/><br/>Sand Castle's four bedrooms plus a queen sleeper sofa in the second family room accommodate up to 10 guests. Wake up to a gorgeous view of the lake in the newly refurnished master suite with its 37" HD LCD TV, custom closet, and huge en suite bathroom with fine cabinetry. A generously sized glass shower and jacuzzi-style soaking tub are all yours to enjoy. Relax and indulge yourself - what luxury!<br/><br/>Bedroom 2 is a second master bedroom with a queen bed and a full bathroom with walk-in shower. It features a 32" HD LCD TV and is ideal for adults or teenagers in your party. The third bedroom is perfect for kids and features two wooden framed bunk beds with 4 single beds and comfortable finishings including a 32" HD LCD TV for their enjoyment. This bedroom has its own connection to the third full bathroom. The fourth bedroom has a double bed and includes a 32" HD LCD TV. The home has a spacious laundry room with a washer, dryer, sink, and iron and ironing board.<br/><br/>This house is conditionally pet friendly. Well behaved dogs under 25 pounds considered.<br/><br/>Life in a private home within a gated resort will take no getting used to at all. Kids and adults alike will go crazy for two large heated pools. One, a heated lap pool, is oceanfront and the second heated pool, for families, has a zero-slope entrance for paddling and a water play area. Also at the pool complex are a fitness center, 2 game rooms, a cafe, and a jacuzzi. Jogging trails throughout the resort and miles of delicious cinnamon-colored beach offer the perfect setting for a morning run or an evening stroll.

This was our third time staying at Sandcastle. The location is convenient to beach and pools and backs up to man made lake with wildlife to observe. We are pet lovers and this rental with the time floors, allows our two dogs and has a fenced grassy area making things so much easier. The ice maker does not work and refrigerator is missing a few drawers and difficult to fit bowls or pans in. It lacks serving bowls and bed pillows are awful. We bring our own. The property needs some love and care but overall it is a great place to visit.

even though the home was nice and had everything we needed, this home is in dire need of maintenance. the ceiling fans and vents were pretty dirty.the back stairs were in need of repair, only half of the hot tub worked and the master bdrm screen kept falling off, the master toilet paper holder kept falling off and the grill was full of water. despite this the location is wonderful and we had a good time. Such a shame to see a gorgeous home not being taken care of as it should

Vrpros sent us to this place when our airconditioning went out at our original vacation rental home. It's awesome. Beautiful and luxurious house in gated community with guards. Like new and very clean with everything you need within walking distance. Highly reccomend!

the conditions in the unit left something to be desired. Plumging upon our arrival was not working properly, the fan blades were coated with dust, and our check-out experience left much to be desired. However, the beach and the pools were great.

Our Sandcastle house was great for a two family vacation! Though it was a bit chilly in Palm Coast in February, the heated pool was great for the kids and the ocean was just a short walk away. The house was beautiful and roomy!

We arrived three days after the last reviewer and found no evidence of the ants mentioned. The home was spotless and management was very responsive to the few minor issues we had (toilet running; jammed lock box). It was lovely being so close to the beach and the club house. From the second story deck you get direct sunlight from sunrise to late afternoon. We particularly enjoyed overlooking the lake and watching the ducks, birds, and even a pair of otters play! We will definitely return â?? it was perfect!

We just returned from staying a week in Sand Castle (Xmas - New Year's Day). The house was clean when we arrived. As far as soap, paper towels, detergents, etc -- the house was not very well equipped, so we had to purchase all house things at the store. The house wifi did not work, and property mgt was pretty efficient getting it up and running. There were a lot of bugs in the house -- mainly lots and lots of tiny ants -- I did not complain about this to mgt, but I'm sure they would have come out and sprayed if I had. We played the conservatory golf course -- spectacular! Overall a nice stay in a nice house.

We loved this home, it worked out perfect especially for our young grandchildren. Plenty of space for all to be together or alone time. St. Augustine was a good outing. Disney for a day worked out nice too. We had plenty relaxing and family time. Only recommendation would be to upgrade the beds. I was nervous making the decision to stay there without a personal recommendation, but so glad I did.
