We stayed at Sandcastle for 10 nights. The property is quite spacious. It is in need of some repairs and upgrades, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pool is so big! The walk to the beach was not far at all. We would stay here again!

Absolutely Gorgeous

By: Trip Date: 2021-07-10
This is the 6th stay at the Sandcastle and you can’t ask for a better rental. This year we stayed for 21 days and it was awesome. We absolutely love this house and the area. It’s a spacious 2 bedroom with 2 1/2 baths. A large private pool in the backyard. A patio outside of each bedroom and the living room has a large screened in deck. It’s always cleaned and well maintained. It’s 3 short blocks to Holmes Beach and close to dining and stores. The pictures don’t do it justice as it is absolutely beautiful. The staff at Florida Dreams Tealty of AMI, The are the most caring and upfront company I have every used. Your happiness and comfort is their main concern. They don’t treat you like another renter but part of their family. I cannot give them enough praise for their service. I cannot wait for our next trip.

Soooo Relaxing

By: Trip Date: 2021-06-10
This place was conveniently located on the island. We could access a quiet beach just by walking a few blocks. Grill was close to the pool, so no one had to miss out while cooking. Would definitely recommend this place for a relaxing getaway.

Great location if you just want to enjoy the beach and pool...

Another awesome stay at Sandcastle. This was our second year to stay at this great property The private pool was especially nice to come back to after the beach. Have already booked this property for 2022


By: Trip Date: 2021-03-08
It was a vacation for relaxation, and we did. The deck is definitely the place to hang out. The facilities & amenities were great.

Nice house, great pool, excellent location

Great beach getaway

By: Trip Date: 2020-09-28
Clean, comfortable, and great location. Management very helpful.

Absolutely Amazing!!!

By: Trip Date: 2020-07-03
This has been our 4th stay at The Sandcastle and it is absolutely beautiful. It’s is everything you need. The house is gorgeous and the private heated pool makes it refreshing after a long day at the beach or a nice relaxing night swim. There is also an outside shower to rinse if the sand and salt water without going into the house. It’s 3 short blocks to Holmes Beach. It’s convenient to the shops and restaurants. We also love the fact that they allow small dogs. This is a gem for any family looking for a 2 bedroom, 2.5 baths with private balconies outside each bedroom and the screened in porch is such a great way to chill and have dinner.

Sandcastle Rental Review

We had a wonderful time at Sand Castle. The property was even better than anticipated Sydney at Florida Dreams was exceptional. We have already booked this property for next March


By: Trip Date: 2020-01-08
We had a wonderful time at the Sandcastle house. Having our own pool was a plus. We would definitely rent here again.

Another AMAZING vacation

By: Trip Date: 2019-11-23
We cannot express how much we LOVE staying at the Sandcastle. The house is beautiful, clean, comfortable and has its own private heated pool. It’s just a short walk to the beautiful Holmes Beach (3 blocks). The staff at Florida Dreams Realty of AMI goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. This was our 4th stay and I am already making plans for our next visit!!!

The rental was great! We fully enjoyed our stay. There was a small issue with the master bathroom but as soon as I notified them, it was addressed and fixed the next day.


By: Trip Date: 2019-07-13
This is our 2nd time that we have rented the Sandcastle unit for our yearly vacation. Very clean, a short walk to the beach, linens, beach towels, beach wagon, private pool, pool table, and fully stocked kitchen. We will be back again!!!!

Absolutely Beautiful and Comfortable

By: Trip Date: 2019-06-22
This is the second year we have stayed at the Sandcastle. Last year for a week and this year for 2 weeks. The pictures don’t do it justice. It’s is beautifully 2 bedroom/2.5 bathrooms. 3 blocks from a gorgeous beach. Large swimming pool in the private backyard. The key was we were allowed to bring our small chihuahua and that was a plus. The rental agency is there whenever you need them IF you need them. I can’t wait to go back and we will be staying here again!

Just awesome !!!

By: Trip Date: 2019-06-01
4 Girls from Germany had just a fantastic vacation. Everything was incrediable. The house the pool the beach the Ocean....
We stayed there for (only) 2 weeks and we did not miss anything.
We arrived after a long flight from Germany and everything was prepared for a warm welcome (even with cool drinks ��). A special Thank to FloridaDreamsRealty ����
2 years ago we stayed in this house but hurricane Irma forced us to go.
But this time we enjoyed every single beautiful day. We relaxed and had fun in the pool. Had some BBQ. We absolute recommend this fantastic place to stay with your family or friends. We did !!! CU next time...

Sandcastle review

By: Trip Date: 2018-12-17
The vacation rental was decent. The space was nice. There are some things that need attention. The carpet on the top floor is dirty, worn, and definately needs replaced. The chairs on the pool patio need updated as well as the lanai patio. Nothing matched. Lots of random chairs. The furniture in the living area is worn and needs relaced. I covered the sofa’s with a sheet.

Schöner Urlaub-kleinere Abstriche

By: Trip Date: 2018-07-14
Wir verbrachten 3 Wochen in diesem Haus. Es war sehr sauber und die Lage ist ebenfalls sehr gut.Sicherlich ist das Objekt etwas „in die Jahre“gekommen und bei unserer Ankunft war der Teppich recht fleckig und auch in der Küche waren einige Utensilien defekt.Nach Weitergabe der Mängel wurden diese umgehend behoben.Wir würden dieses Haus empfehlen und kommen bestimmt wieder.

Great vacation!

By: Trip Date: 2018-07-07
House was great and pool even better! Maintenance issues handled immediately and service was great. House is older and not as updated as others on the island but it suited our needs well. The wagon to carry things to the beach was a plus. Brand new ping pong table was nice too!

Absolutely Gorgeous

By: Trip Date: 2018-06-23
OMG this property was absolutely amazing. The pictures don’t do it justice. We were extremely pleased with the location and the cleanliness. it is a 3 block walk to the beach but they provide you with a beach wagon, chairs and umbrella. Everything we needed for the beach was there and we did’t have to go out and rent anything. The pool was clean and the temperature was heaven. It mentions it has a heater but you do not need it turned on. It was like 82 degrees day and night. The layout of the house was so nice and we were able to bring our furbaby with us. The staff went above and beyond to help me decide before I rented and were there for me if I needed until I checked out. We will definitely be coming back and staying at the Sandcastle.

Es waren die erholsamsten Ferien seit ewigen Zeiten!
Wir kommen wieder:-)

Wonderful Rental!

By: Trip Date: 2017-10-13
We enjoyed 12 nights in this lovely house in October 2017. The property is spacious and well equipped and we had a great time. Beds were comfy, air con was good and we loved the lanai and pool. We appreciated the beach cart too which helped haul the chairs, umbrella etc the mere 2 blocks to the beach. Bathrooms were a little old fashioned but clean and functional. The pool was an impressively large and a nice temperature. All the booking and checking in info were handled very professionally by Florida Dreams. We felt the house was good value for money and would love to stay again! Highly recommended

Wonderful but to short

By: Trip Date: 2017-09-02
We stayed 2 weeks in a beautiful home. This House is perfect for just relaxing and having a good Time. 5 min to the fantastic beach and all beach stuf you will find in the house. We will come back for sure!

Relaxing Week at the Beach!

By: Trip Date: 2017-06-17
Overall a good experience. The house was very clean but could use some upgrades in the kitchen and with the TVs. The pool was large which was great for maximum floating! Also, the beach is just a 3 block walk down the street which made it so convenient. The room with the pool table (not ping pong) had a strong musty smell so we didn't use it and the patio furniture could use an upgrade as well. Overall a nice trip if you are looking for an inexpensive way to enjoy the beautiful AMI beaches and restaurants nearby.

Fun place!

By: Trip Date: 2017-06-07
My family and I stayed here in early June, and it was perfect for our needs. While it's a little older and has some wear, it was very clean and cutely decorated. All the appliances you could need were available, although unlike most rentals we've stayed at there were no staples left, like salt and pepper or oil. We really enjoyed the pool and the pool table is fun if you're not a pro, because it is very uneven. The outdoor seating was nice, although there was some construction going on behind the house. And I loved the lush landscape with the plumeria tree, however the landscapers were cutting it all out when we left. :( Easy walk to the beach, and easy drive to anywhere on the island. Easy to book, and came with an app with all the info as well as a complete instructional binder and multiple brochures and magazines about the local restaurants and activities. We were even accommodated with a late check out!

A Dream Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2017-01-21
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Sandcastle in sunny Florida. We loved our condo and the heated extra large pool. We played in it most every day. Loved that it was in the sun most of the day.The king size bed was very comfortable. The kitchen supplies were very adequate. Thank you Florida Dreams. Birthday

location sandcastle on ami

By: Trip Date: 2016-07-04
it was very nice to stay here in this great location , near the beach.i hope we can come back sometimes

Enjoyable Stay

By: Trip Date: 2016-06-24
7+ day stay was very enjoyable, close walk to the beach, nice pool and amenities. The property is a little outdated but overall a nice place. My only disappointment was that we arrived on a Friday and the pool wasn't cleaned until Tuesday.

2nd visit here was magical too!

By: Trip Date: 2015-09-10
We returned a few months later, can't get enough of AMI and no where else we'd like to stay (until we buy our own home and live here on the Island)than the Sandcastle. It's clean bright cheery, well stocked with towels, kitchen needs, easy walk to the beach, garage with tons of space for all of our bikes (They have 1 so we rented 3 more, AMI is very bike friendly)...oh, and the pool is such a big hit! We'll be back soon. I feel homesick for AMI and the Sandcastle already!!!!

Gutes Ferienhaus

By: Trip Date: 2015-07-28
Gutes Ferienhaus mit kleinen Mängeln. Hatten eine sehr gute erste Woche trotz Dauerregens. Es fehlte im Haus an nichts. Ausreichend Geschirr u. Handtücher. Trotzdem Investitions- u. Renovierungsbedarf, eben kleine Mängel im und am Haus, sicher bedingt durch eine Vielzahl an Vermietungstagen über die Jahre hinweg.

It was a wonderful place with a great location

By: Trip Date: 2015-08-13
I was impressed with the management leaving me a note about the construction on the roof next door. It worked out fine and we really enjoyed the place.


By: Trip Date: 2015-06-13
We had a great time at Sandcastle! It was pleasantly decorated and comfortable. A short walk to the beach. There were some small issues, but all were made aware to the property company. Also, we did like to swim at night, but there wasn't a lot of lighting around the pool when it is dark. The pool is big. In fact, it is probably one of the largest we have seen offered with a private home rental. Although the master bedroom is large with a nice king sized bed and a big walk in closet, the master bath is small. All in all, this is a great unit. The rec room needs some attention to spruce it up and some of the game equipment needs replaced, as well as some of the beach equipment. There were a few general repair that were needed, but nothing to stop you from renting this unit. This unit is not over priced and a good deal for what it has to offer. Each bedroom and the living has a television. The kitchen has a charming, retro color TV that brought a smile to our face! When was the last time you turned a knob to change your TV channel? I would rent this property again.

Sandcastle - We had the BEST Vacation EVER in this awesome home

By: Trip Date: 2015-05-17
The owner was easy to communicate with and helped us to plan our stay, check in was easy with a key code entry. Upon arriving the home exceeded our expectations! It was more charming than the pictures and spotless clean! The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals, dishes cutlery bowls cutting boards, pots and pans, the house was so comfortable for our family of 4 and we all LOVED the decor... we did not want to leave and WISH we could buy this home and live here forever!!!! It was so nice to have the pool and we used it every day. The welcome kit was a nice touch, and the beach items like sand toys and umbrellas in the garage were a pleasant surprise to find. It was a short walk to the beach, no need for the car, no busy traffic to cross, 2 quiet side roads. I love the outdoor shower, and never even used the indoor one in the master bath! We can't wait to stay here again. It is quiet safe and family friendly. I hope a longer stay next time! Anna Maria is a beautiful Island, and staying in this lovely beach house made it a perfect vacation.

First time to AMI can't wait to return

By: Trip Date: 2015-05-02
The whole experience was so easy to book and if I had any questions always got a quick response by email, when arriving at the property it was clean and tidy and the outside space was really spacious. The pool is heated and cleaned once a week. We initially had an issue with the hot water but was fixed within 2 hours and then worked perfectly. The location is 5 mins walk from the beach, and the free trolley bus is a bonus, we had a car but that was really used to go to the larger supermarkets at Cortez. The local restaurant Lobstahs was great food and atmosphere and you can get the free bus so can have a cocktail!! Overall a great home from home suitable for a couple/family would definitely return.

Nice stay

Space, good pool and near beach

By: Trip Date: 2015-04-20
We found the location of Sandcastle to be excellent, if you don't want to drive, a trolley bus [free!!]stops just outside to get to the bars and restaurants just down Gulf Drive or just take some time and stroll. Beach about 2 1/2 blocks [so 300 yds, an easy stroll. House, spread over three floors, clean and comfortable with a good sized pool you can actually swim in. There's a medium sized PUBLIX supermarket about a mile away. Overall just a great location and house.

Great rental

By: Trip Date: 2015-01-17
We really enjoyed our stay at the Sandcastle and are looking forward to our return next year.


By: Trip Date: 2014-12-20
We had a lovely time at Sandcastle! The property was exactly what we expected -- looked just like the pictures, no surprises. Plenty of space, very clean, easy walk to the beach, great private pool and wonderful screened lanai. Master bath was a bit small but clean. Living room furniture was good although the long sofa had somewhat collapsing cushions. Kitchen was great. Very thoughtful welcome package was much appreciated.

Our Visit in October 2014

By: Trip Date: 2014-10-18
The property description was the same as we saw when we arrives.
We came with 4 Persons from Germany and stayed for 14 Days.
The house was clean and everithing could be used. There was nothing defekt.
Because of this we did not need any help from the costumer Service.
The house is very close to the beach so that we could go there by feet.
A very nice place to stay.

Beautiful Townhouse in perfect location

By: Trip Date: 2014-08-09
We spent a perfect week in this beautiful townhouse on Anna Maria Island. The property is well maintained and we found everything we needed to feel happy. The nice welcome pack for the first needs on arrival, the map with useful information, the nice decorated rooms, the pool especially for our son,the short walk to the beach, the the fully equipped kitchen,the nearby shopping-possibilities, we loved to stay in this house. We hope, we can come back here next time.

Good Location

By: Trip Date: 2014-02-01
The location is very good, just two blocks from the beach and the overall design of the place is fine. We would have renewed for the next year without hesitation; the property needs to be renewed with freshened furniture and maintenance cleaning outside.

Loved it

By: Trip Date: 2013-11-23
We had a totally enjoyable stay at Sandcastle. This home is beautiful and in some ways was more than we expected. Extra beach towels everywhere,the best equipped kitchen I have seen in the many years that I have been renting vacation homes, and laundry detergent, dish soap, paper towels, etc. etc. There were a lot of bath towels. I could go on and on about the amenities. The home has a lot of room and so many decks that you don't have to see anyone if you don't want to. The pool was so warm that even though we had some cold weather we could still swim. We were 4 middle aged women and this home was great, 2 blocks to the beach, beautifully landscaped and a wonderful neighbor. Rent this home, you will not be disapointed.

Nice Stay

By: Trip Date: 2013-09-21
Nice stay. House had everything we needed. BBQ was broken but replaced.
