Less than a five minute drive to beautiful, white sand beaches and fantastic restaurants, this is a perfect couples weekend retreat. A delicious and plentiful breakfast is served daily as well as enticing afternoon snacks. The staff members provide exceptional service. They are friendly and...

It's a B&B with very little charm. It's really a large building. The breakfast is mediocre. And very skimpy. The bicycles are old, worn & broken down. The beach chairs are old as well. We never felt that the innkeeper cared to please. Nor was there an ever an offer to do anything above and beyond. You get the minimum....

My husband and I stayed at The Sand Castle this past weekend for our 15th anniversary. It is a wonderful B&B and Nancy, the innkeeper, was terrific. The decor is charming, the breakfast was delicious, and the pool area was beautiful and relaxing. The room was extremely clean and I am very very picky about accommodations so I was pleased...

Our staff is very meticulous about trying to make the room look like you are the first guest to use it. We are so grateful that you noticed! I also give everyone my cell phone so I can be alerted if anything has been missed. During the summer season, at the end of our street there is a tram which...

The Sand Castle is a gem on LBI - The decor is lovely and the innkeeper has added some wonderful personal touches. Everything was perfection. The breakfast in the morning was amazing - the best scones I've ever tasted.

After six months of experimenting and gaining about 20 pounds when I first opened, I finally found perfection for our scones! It makes me very happy that you enjoyed them so much! Thank you!

My wife and I went to LBI for our niece's wedding. The Sand Castle was the icing on the cake of a wonderful trip. The accomadtions were superb and we wanted for nothing. That includes breakfast, coffee, daily snacks and a great host. (Nancy) Friendly guests too! Rick D
