Pflugerville, Texas
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We really enjoyed our stay here. It's an older property but still very nice, and the price is right. We could see the gulf from our balcony and the beach is very close. It's also nice to have a kitchenette so you don't have to eat out for every meal. I'll be back!

Conveniently located, Comfortable condo, well-appointed, good service, great pool, awesome ocean view, spacious balcony. If only the beach was not covered in seaweed! Otherwise perfect. Hint: If you head north on the main road, you can cross to the mainland on the ferry - kids loved it.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. Our location is one of the best on the island and the City of Port Aransas continues working on the clean up of the seaweed. Looking forward to your return.

We have visited the Sandcastle Condominiums three times in tge past year and will be returning again next weekend with our entire extended family.

We stayed on the 5th floor twice and the third floor,...

Loved our stay at Sand Castle. We stayed in a two bedroom unit with a large deck that looked over the pool and the beach. The property is older and dated, but very well maintained. More importantly, service was excellent! Everyone who worked at the property was helpful and went the extra mile. Beach access was ideal with a boardwalk...
