Sandcastle has been managing my 2 properties for 10 years now and I have always found them to be responsive to my needs as an owner and those of my guests. I have come to accept that in this business there are always people who will never be pleased but I believe that the Sandcastle Team does their very best to ensure that all guests have a great vacation!

We have been using Sandcastle Realty for a number of years to rent a house for our vacation. The employees are always friendly, helpful and responsive. If we have had any issues with a rental they are always quick (even on weekends) to reply and do everything to resolve the issue quickly and completely, including following up to ensure that the issue is resolved. We always know our vacation is in good hands with them.

I had a very positive experience with Sandcastle Realty. I had a number of requirements for our summer rental, and the owner of Sandcastle walked us patiently through the available listings until we found one that suited our needs. We found a place that satisfied our price range, room number, animal-free condition and distance to the beach. I look forward to working with them again
