This was a last minute booking as our condo with another rental company fell through at the last minute.<br/><br/>The rental company could be more knowledgable about what the owners have in the condo (beach toys, chairs, etc). It would make planning much easier. It seems it would be simple to check when the condos are being cleaned.

A guest from Somerset, KY recommends this vacation rental.
On the whole this was a very nice condo. It was updated for the most part and clean. We love Sand Castle 1 and have stayed in several units over the years. There is a BIG problem with guest parking that the condo association doesn't seem to be able to solve or really even care about. This condo needed some general maintenance and upkeep. When we left we gave Florida Lifestyles a list of 5 or 6 general items that needed attention. There is one major-and dangerous- problem with wall electric plugs. All plugs in both bedrooms were almost falling out of the wall and completely useless as nothing plugged into them would hold. They simply fell out of the socket. This has also been a problem in several other units we have rented. For the most part our family loves this area and all the wonderful restaurants. The beach is beautiful as are the grounds at Sand Castle 1. Our large extended family has been visiting for 7 or 8 years. We usually have 4 or 5 condos rented, with 25 or sofamily members.

Loved the view. Good location midway between St. Pete and Clearwater. Only downfall with location was there wasn't a lot within walking distance. The condo was nicely equipped. There were 3 chairs, boogie boards and some sand toys in the closet on balcony. We also left another chair & umbrella for future renters. The kitchen had everything we needed. A small t.v. In with the 3rd bed would have been nice.

The condo was perfect for our family of 4. The view of the ocean from the balcony was beautiful. We were able to relax with all the comforts of home. There are beach chairs and an umbrella that you can use which comes in handy when you are flying vs. driving. The only concern was all the construction that was going on during our stay. There was a construction crew installing scaffolding all week. The banging started at 7am and lasted into the evening. Bring your own hair dryer and be prepared to fully stock the condo. There weren't any paper towels, dish soap or a coffee filter in the unit. I left behind Kleenex, paper towels, TP, laundry detergent, dryer sheets and other items to help the next guest. Lots of great restaurants close to the condo to enjoy! I will definitely book again next year!

A guest from Gibsonton, FL recommends this vacation rental.
Let me start by saying that our vacation was wonderful, the things that were, in our eyes, in need of improvement, did not effect our ability to have a great family vacation by any means. I also must say that when we were looking at the pictures online, we were disappointed to see the outdated TV in the master bedroom. I read some previous reviews and noticed someone else stayed only a few weeks before us and mentioned it. The property management company said they would pass that info on to the owner, and they kept their word. We were thrilled to see a new flat screen TV in the living room and the other flat screen rotated to the master. For my family, we felt like the unit could use a deep cleaning to get the areas that may just be overlooked. It was not real dirty, just not cleaned with attention to detail (walls, baseboards, under furniture, carpets). The carpets should be replaced with something more suitable and fitting for high traffic; they were pretty gross. Also, the balcony is in need of a deep clean. The area surrounding the table is black. We couldn't go out there without the bottoms of our feet being covered. (Not good for the carpet) The master bed is very uncomfortable and the pull-out couch was gross. My son attempted it, but then decided to push it back in. The unit itself could use some updating with décor to make it feel more welcoming and cozier. Those are just things that we pay attention to when we spend money to stay somewhere and make memories. Despite these things, it was still an amazing time! I love this area on the 4th of July! Great view of the fireworks, the elevators were working great, and the people are so friendly. This is our 4th year staying at the Sand Castle 1 and I definitely would recommend it to a friend, but not this specific unit.

Thank you very much for your review. We are happy to report that this condo just sold and the new Owner is planning to do a makeover. In a few months it will be updated so feel free to book this condo next year without worry of outdated décor. Thanks again for staying with us and for your review.

We arrived early for a wedding in Tampa and the staff was very helpful getting us in the rental early to get ready. The property and the rental were well maintained and clean. Four adults and a three year old stayed very comfortably with more than enough space. The area is very nice and a great location, half way between Clearwater and St. Pete. Love this rental and this area. Florida Lifestyles was great. There were Zero problems with our stay, booking was easy and efficient and everyone we dealt with at Florida Lifestyles was very nice.

The property was clean. But the actual building was not. Arrived to garbage when exited elevator on our floor. Not a good first impression.
Manager Responded on 05/05/2014
Thank you for your review. We have passed your comments on the property management company since we do not manage the common areas. During changeovers, some people put their garbage out in front of their door instead of properly disposing of it. They stated that it was removed in a timely manner and unfortunately, you may have arrived shortly after a guest placed it there. Thanks again for your review.

A guest from Blue Springs, MO recommends this vacation rental.
We have been going to the Sandcastle properties for the last 10 years. Either with family or friends. So depending on the group usually tells us which of the two condos buildings to rent from. This is the first time with your company and the first in this condo. The condo was clean but very stark. No decor. Looks like a sunset in there all the time. The shades over the sliding doors don't do much to keep out the sun light or the moonlight. It was like having a light in the room all night long. The condo managment turned off the water on Wed for new plumbing. We got one day notice plus we had to move our car with the managemnt group not informing us where we could park with out a violation. That was stressful. Their response was: thank you for your coorporation and sorry for the inconvience. Not much choice. Plus one other thing the washer and dryer in this unit is too small. It is apartment size and not good for beach towels or any kind of towels. The way they have the dryer is hooked up it is a fire hazard. Beds were good but the pillows on all beds were terrible. We will not rent this unit again. We have others we will try again.

I wish we were told ahead of time that we needed to bring toilet paper, dishwasher soap, or kitchen soap. I feel for the price the basic essentials should be included. A reminder from out of towners to bring beach towels. Also inform about visitors parking.
Manager Responded on 03/22/2013
Thank you for your feedback. Condo rentals are 'Self Catering' to keep costs down. For the same price you pay for motel room, on the beach, your stay was in a 2 bedroom (plus den) fully equipped condominium with kitchen and washer/dryer. Again, thank you for your feedback.
