Great b&b

5 on May 11, 2018

We arrived early in the season and the hosts couldn’t be more accommodating . It felt like we were visiting friends not staying at strange place. Very relaxing and location is great, food was great.

Outstanding more than a B&B

5 on August 08, 2017

Lets go to a place that exceeds your expectations. Lets go some where that every one excels at their job. By far the cleanest and friendliest resort / B&B we have ever stayed at. I feel compelled to give credit to people that have a passion and extreme professionalism. I hope that every one that reads this review understand that I may loose my opportunity to stay if you book rooms before we have a chance to come again. The rooms and food are fantastic , the best part of your stay will be Nancy G and her staff. I respect these people for the wonderful experience they provide every guest.They deserve more then stars. Please check out every inch of this place,the heated pool, the piano room and the hot tub.The roof top deck at sun rise or sunset is where you'll let your loved ones know , how much you love them. Thanks Nancy G and Joe. Also thanks to Nancy our morning sunshine, who presented us a wonderful breakfast every morning . We appreciate your unmatched hospitality . We can't wait to return for another Delicious , romantic , relaxing vacation. Don and Donna

One of those rare instances when their brochure does not do justice to the place. The pool area was truly an oasis from daily pressures. This B&B made sure that our every want and need was taken care of without us asking. The fridge was stocked with soda and popcorn was near the microwave. There was fresh, home baked sweets ready for snacking whenever. the room had anything you might need, including huge beach towels and current magazines, to make your stay as enjoyable as you could want. The entire place was beautifully appointed in all common spaces, as was our room. We actually phoned our friends from the pool area to see whether they were available to return with us soon! LOVED IT THERE.

Innkeeper Response
Hmmmmm, guess we need to update that brochure as often as we update the facility! Thank you so much for noticing all the details and sharing this with the public. That was so nice to hear that we are "an oasis from daily pressures". Hope you don't ind if I steal that line! We look forward to you AND your friends coming to visit us in the future!

My wife and I stayed here in September of 2012 and could not have been happier with everything. The grounds are pristine, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. Highly recommend this property!

The best B&B ever!

5 on March 25, 2012

I cannot say one negative thing about the Sand Castle -- truly every detail about this B&B far exceeded my expectations! You get what you pay for is true, however, in this case I got much, much more than I paid for!

Sand Castle is the Best

5 on February 06, 2012

The Sand Castle is by far the loveliest B&B we've ever stayed at. The rooms were beautiful & very comfortable. Nancy and her staff were wonderful. The breakfast was beyond any other we have stayed at "gourmet" is the only word to describe it.

Elegance by the Sea

5 on November 05, 2011

The Sand Castle B&B is a luxury experience with elegant beach decor, delicious breakfasts and every amenity you can think of. Innkeeper Nancy is a real professional who takes superb care of her guests.

Warm & Welcoming

5 on October 30, 2011

From the minute we arrived to the last breakfast, we fell in love with the beautiful B&B. The innkeeper and her staff are professional and wonderful. We give it 5 stars and more. We will return.

A Memorable and Delightful Weekend

5 on October 03, 2011

My husband and I just returned from our 3rd visit to The Sand Castle Bed and Breakfast. The cleanliness, amenities, breakfast, and friendliness of the staff is always consistent. Nancy and her staff go above and beyond to ensure your stay is everything you want it to be. I look forward to the fresh, brewed coffee every morning. It is the best I have ever had. And the breakfast is so delicious! This is a cozy, comfortable, feel at home kind of place. We look forward to our next visit.

Can't wait to go back
