It was my first trip to the OBX and it was during the off-season. We needed a place that accommodated dogs and were looking for a place to kind of get off the grid for a bit. Well this place had everything. It was extremely spacious with multiple levels, a game room, washer/dryer, grill, pool (off season so it was understandably closed), hot tub, and just a beautiful place in general. We were able to find places to eat nearby that were great, Uncle Ikes and Corolla Cantina to name a few and grocery shopping was also nearby. We wanted to see the wild horses and .... well... they were literally walking around the development 2 of the 4 mornings we spent. While they were rounded up and returned to their safe natural habitat, it was amazing to hear them nearby and see them close. This place would be ideal for a larger multifamily trip. In fact, the people that stayed there before us seemed to have a good time for Thanksgiving based on the recycling left out in front for pick up when we arrived. All in all, I would recommend this place 10 out of 10 times.

This house fit our family's needs. Everyone had an appropriate bed whether it be for the kids or adults. Plenty of kitchenware to go around. And plenty of space to spread out if needed.

Castle in the sand was the perfect house for our adult only vacation. The kitchen was well stocked and furniture was sturdy. The pool was the perfect size for a few couples. 5 minute drive to the 4x4 beach. Check in was a breeze. Bedrooms were all in great shape and great sizes. Washer and dryer was in excellent working condition.

My family and I spent a week at Castle in the Sand. It exceeded our expectations. The house was perfect for us. Plenty of room for nine adults and one child. Rooms were spacious with tvs in every room. The kitchen was fully loaded with everything you needed. The pool was perfect with plenty of lounge chairs. The outside shower was one of the best we ever had. The decks were the perfect place for morning coffee or evening sunsets. The beach was less than a 10 minute walk. I would recommend this beach house for anyone looking for a great family vacation.

We liked having the pool but it was on the small side. We had plenty of space for our family. We requested to have the Gas Grill fixed for our use or to provide a replacement. Needless to say, we did not have a grill to cook on. Lazy Suzy door in kitchen was broken. Never fixed while we were there. Other than that we enjoyed our week in Outer Banks at this house.

This was a great family spot for our beach vacation. Plenty of room for everyone, full kitchen, pool and hot tub. We had a few maintenance issues when we first arrived but we called customer service and they came out to fix it right away. Very pleased.

The house was. In wonderful location. He’d a few minor problems but was quickly resolved. Need to list trash pick up times Also would be nice to have to contact after 6:00pm. Very clean. Our family really enjoyed. The kitchen was the best I have seen in a rental. Hope to use again

The house was very clean. Fully equipped with everything you could need. Lots of room for 10+ people. The weather was horrible so we never used the pool or even the gorgeous decks due to the norester.

Loved the house and the area! Although, our stay was way too short. Hope to visit again soon.

The house was very nice. It was the perfect location. Had almost everything we needed. There was just a few things that where not very good. Like all the wonderful decks where covered in spiders and spider webs. The master bedroom didn’t have a way to close the blinds. The hot tub did not have good lighting. Also where the grill was did not have good lighting and the grill did run out after only a few minutes of use. There were many positives too. The beds where very comfortable, they had plenty of towels and other things for the bedroom. The kitchen was fully stocked and everything was good and ready to go when we got there.

The house is beautiful and lots of space for everyone!
Peter S. Sep 2021
Enough space and laid out well so that all 3 families had their own space. Pool was great!
Joanne D. Jul 2021
This house was perfect for my family of 12. The pool and hot tub were great. This home was close to the beach and 4 wheel drive beach also shopping area was close. We has a wonderful vacation.
