My stay at this cottage was lovely! The location was great, just a short walk to the beach. The house was very clean and it\'s bigger than it looks. Me and my family had a awesome time here! We will definitely be back!

This is the first family vacation we have been on with all the kids in a few years. The house had plenty of room and was very clean. We loved how almost every window had a view of the gulf and was just a very short walk to the beach. The drive to town took no time at all and was very beautiful. The only complaint we really had was when we booked there was outdoor furniture and a picnic table downstairs in the photos but when we got there there was none and the few seats on the balcony were old and looked like they had seen better days. The pull out sleeper sofa was very uncomfortable too. However the rest of the beds were great and the kitchen had everything you needed. Over all we would definitely go again.

The Sunny Beach Sandcastle Cottage was perfect for our family\'s weekend getaway. Despite not being beachfront there are excellent ocean views from many areas of the home. I would definitely use this rental again. Ryson made the check in process safe and easy.
