Property Description

Sandcastle Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

A Destin vacation hosted by the lovely Sandcastle is so charming that you’ll find yourself thinking “Ah, what a wonderful world”. Even though it’s made of beams and nails instead of sand and water, Sandcastle’s coastal casual interior will make all the positives of life shine as bright as the Destin sun!

A true home away from home, Sandcastle features a fully- stocked kitchen with granite counters that opens up to a dining and family room. Life will be so pleasant as you comfortably prepare a cool drink and unwind in the parlor complete with books and a flat screen T.V., outside around the private pool or swaying in a rocking chair on the back porch. Whether you spend your days on the gorgeous Destin beach a block away, shopping in one of Destin’s open-air malls or playing a round of golf on our celebrated golf courses- you’ll be happy to come home to the fresh upgrades of Sandcastle.

Special touches include a cohesive beach décor scheme, hardwood floors, two living rooms, a sunny pool deck surrounded by lounge chairs and two covered porches. Moreover, the evergreen landscaping hedging this two story getaway combined with its close proximity to the beach, stores, bowling alleys and movie theatres make it a perfect ‘castle’ for beach royalty.

For safety and security, this vacation rental home is equipped with an external camera/ring doorbell.

No pets allowed.

We require a minimum length of stay during the summer and over holidays.

We do not rent to anyone under 25 or to students

Guests receive a welcome kit with small dishwasher detergent, dish soap, sponge, a roll of paper towels, and laundry detergent. There will be an initial trash liner in each receptacle and a set of toilet paper and soaps for each bathroom provided. Guests will need to replenish supplies for longer stays.

This pool can be heated between October- April for a fee of $50 per day upon request to our office. There is an additional charge for heating requests within 48 hours of check-in.

★★★★★ 5 of 5
We miraculously found this rental property online and we are very grateful that we did. Amazing home, location, and property managers. Had a bit of trouble With the a/c but we were notified beforehand and the a/c company that came to fix it it’s beyond professional and prepared. Minor hiccup was fixed in record time and did not alter our experience whatsoever. We all had a great time, property is top notch, Great layout, very spacious and the backyard is a dream. Only a block away from the “private beach”, 5 mins away from Wholefoods, Walgreens, CVS, and restaurants. Everything is close by. Will definitely book again for next summer with time so that we can stay longer. House was also very clean and even had a sanitizer dispenser right in the entrance of the property (thoughtful touch). Can’t thank them enough for providing my family with this opportunity to spend some much needed quality time. Our kids did not want to leave and if we could have, we would have definitely extended the reservation. Thank you for all the memories... will see you soon... !

We had such a nice time staying at Sandcastle! We were 2 adults and 4 adult children and it was so comfortable. We cooked and grilled several times and had everything we needed. The pool was spotless and the rockers on the back porch - I almost cried to leave my favorite coffee spot. Highly recommend staying here!

Our family loved staying at Sandcastle. The house had everything we needed, well stocked. The pool was very nice and an easy walk to the beach...only one block back. I would definitely stay at Sandcadtle again! Newman-Dailey provided quick and easy check in. We were well pleased with our overall experience. My only suggestion would be to have a combination lock on the back door. The back door is near the shower, pool, and parking. That is the door you would always access when coming in from the beach or after s night out. Thank you Newman-Dailey for making our week in Destin perfect!!

The property was a great floor plan and wonderfully staged! A perfect beach house to set the mood for vacation mode. Access to the beach was quick and soooooo convenient. We utilized all areas of the property; heated pool and grill in back yard, bedroom, large kitchen and living areas, and cute front porch for morning coffee. We very much enjoyed our stay and would come back to this property in a heartbeat!

We certainly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. Our children got very upset when it was time to leave…(they thought we now lived there). The house was absolutely perfect and really made our trip. The pool was incredible and our 2 year old swam for the first time in it. We will forever cherish the memories we made at Sand Castle!

This trip was a Christmas present for the kids but they had to wait 6 months to go! So there was a LOT of anticipation. This house did not disappoint! There was plenty of room for two families traveling together and this truly became our home for the week. We shared a lot of laughs, meals, good conversation, and much needed naps in this home. I can’t imagine making these memories anywhere else!

We had a wonderful stay at Sandcastle. The home is beautiful and located on a quiet side street. There is also a gas grill at the residence so we enjoyed a few nights of grilling out while the kids played in the private pool in the backyard. We definitely would recommend this rental, and look forward to visiting it again soon!

Sandcastle is absolutely perfect. We had a wonderful family vacation! The home is clean, comfortable, warm, and makes you smile as soon as you walk through the front door. This home has plenty of room for a large family. The heated pool is relaxing after a day at the beach. The kitchen is equipped with all you need to cook a great home cooked meal. The house is located in an adorable neighborhood safe for family walks and bike rides. Shopping and restaurants are close too! It is truly an amazing home in a beautiful place. Check in and check out is very easy and Newman-Dailey are great to work with. They make you feel right at home. Headed back in November for a girls get away and already looking at dates to book for next year. Plan your vacation and make memories for a life time. This home is truly a castle in the sand!!!!

Sandcastle was absolutely perfect. The house is beautiful. Spacious, comfortable and very clean. Nestled in an adorable neighborhood. The outdoor pool was relaxing with beautiful lights for the evening. Plenty of beds and baths for all. There were a total of 8 women for a mom's get away. We had the most perfect time. The location is in the middle of everything. Walked to the beach. Shopping and restaurants couple minutes away. Already have next years trip planned and taking my family back in March. Destin is a beautiful area. Plan your vacation and book a week at Sandcastle you will love every minute of your vacation!

We had a great time even though the weather was a little iffy. Sandcastle was comfortable and the pool was an added bonus. We have been coming to Destin for 30 years and this is one of the nicest places we've stayed in. Thanks, Newman-Daily for the great service you provide We'll be back! My only wish was that the master bedroom bath had a walk-in shower instead of the high tub and shower combo. It's not so easy to get in and out of. Every thing else was perfect. Loved that back porch!

check-in was fast and easy. the fruit bowl that was delivered was a nice surprise. the driveway is a little narrow but the house was very comfortable. We have realized that the stairway is more than we want in the future as we get older. The master suite is nice but the bedspread is a little awkward and heavy. Loved the kitchen but do think there are way too many fake flower arrangements.
