We had a wonderful time on Dauphin Island. The house was perfectly decorated for the Beach. Everything was clean and in its place. We had the pool right behind us, or could walk to the private Beach from the condo carrying our things, not a long walk at all. The kids loved the Beach and the pool right on the Beach as well. Nice white sands, beautiful weather and the Dauphins made an appearance everyday. Will be coming back.

Such a beautiful place very clean and had all we needed! Looked just like the pictures! We loved it and would come back!

We absolutely loved our stay and plan to be back. The place was clean and perfect location to pools and the private access beach. The property manager was kind and friendly. Only issue we had was Vacasa giving us the wrong gate entrance code. We then walked past the gate and ground the correct code written on the office door.
Hi, Scott! Thank you for choosing a Vacasa home! We appreciate you bringing your concerns with the gate code to our attention and apologize for any inconvenience. We encourage guests who need immediate assistance to call our 24 hour Guest Service line to give the local team the opportunity to further address. We do apologize for any missteps, and are happy to address any incidents as they arise. We hope we get the opportunity to host you again sometime in the near future!

We enjoyed 4 beautiful days at this unit. We had 5 women and there was plenty of space. The pools were great and never crowded as was the beach. It was definitely are best girls trip yet, even with the lack of places to eat at. The unit is spacious and had everything we needed. The only complaints were too many stairs (nothing you can do about that), the July gate code is 1776 and Vacasa was no help figuring that out (it was posted on the door of the property manager building), and the furniture in the unit is not comfortable. There is no cushion what so ever to it. We usually pile up in the living room for pizza and a movie, but this furniture isn't made for relaxing. Overall it was a great stay and plan to stay again at this location, but we will find a different unit.

This condo was perfect for our 5 person family. Being able to walk to the beach and having the pools close was an added pleasure. The first pool can be viewed from the balcony for watching kids swim and the second is on the beach. I only wish they would have left trash bags for when we filled the ones they left in the cans. The kitchen was well stocked with plates, silverware, cups, utensiles, pots and pans. There isn't much to eat on the island so bring food.

This was a great find for our family. The condo is very nice, well decorated and clean. My daughters, grandchildren and myself had a very relaxing time. We enjoyed the pools and the beach every day of our stay. Staff is friendly and we had no problems with anything. It was a great to be back at Dauphin Island and enjoying the time there. This was our first time to stay on the East end of the island and we were happy with our location and access to the beach. Thank you for renting your property so others can experience and enjoy what you have been blessed to have.

Beautiful setting, peaceful and relaxing.

Only issue was a smaller than expected sandy beach from storm erosion. Vacasa staff and SandCastle Property managers were professional and helpful. The pools, boardwalks and landscaping are well maintained,

The condo itself was very clean, with updated decor and well stocked with everything we needed. The pool was right outside our until, and a short walk beought us to the beach area. Unfortunately, the gate code we were given by vacasa did not work and we were stuck outside the gates of the complex at 9pm in the rain after a long drive. We tried contacting vacasa through every number, email, text we were given and could not get a person to help us. I sat on hold for 30 min with no answer. My husband walked around the property in the rain, until we finally found a sign inside the property manager's office with the correct gate code. We finally got a response from Vacasa around 9am the next day. But for this reason I would not recommend booking through vacasa, and have never had an experiece where the rental company was completely unreachable, although the condo and property itself was very nice.
We sincerely apologize for the late response to your gate code request. We are dealing with a much smaller staff due to the effects of COVID-19 on our industry and are doing our best to get back in touch with our guests as quickly as possible. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Nice little condo with plenty of room and great amenities.
Brant B.May 2020
A very nice place! Clean, well stocked with utensils you might need, and lots of room.
And a quiet environment. We loved the ‘hanging’ outdoor seats under the deck.
Mandy F.Mar 2020
Very nice accommodations. The unit was very clean when we arrived and suited our family of 4 perfectly. Kids loved the bunk beds and the living and kitchen were spacious and had plenty of kitchen supplies. We had a wonderful time!

Enjoyed the stay. Had everything we needed for a quick stay while our kids explored the Sea Lab.

Sand Castle 2 was the perfect condo for us with two girls. Spacious. Bright and cheery decor. Clean! Well appointed with items like a Kreuig, blender and lots of pots and pans and & cooking utensils. Even some basic cooking spices! Great location!!! Close to the pool and a very short walk to the beach. We attended classes at Dauphin Island sea lab which were also great. The people in the Vacas office were friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great stay.
