About the property

 A Destin vacation hosted by the lovely Sandcastle is so charming that you’ll find yourself thinking “Ah, what a wonderful world”. Even though it’s made of beams and nails instead of sand and water, Sandcastle’s coastal casual interior will make all the positives of life shine as bright as the Destin sun!

A true home away from home, Sandcastle features a fully- stocked kitchen with granite counters that opens up to a dining and family room. Life will be so pleasant as you comfortably prepare a cool drink and unwind in the parlor complete with books and a flat screen T.V., outside around the private pool or swaying in a rocking chair on the back porch. Whether you spend your days on the gorgeous Destin beach a block away, shopping in one of Destin’s open-air malls or playing a round of golf on our celebrated golf courses- you’ll be happy to come home to the fresh upgrades of Sandcastle.

Special touches include a cohesive beach décor scheme, hardwood floors, two living rooms, a sunny pool deck surrounded by lounge chairs and two covered porches. Moreover, the evergreen landscaping hedging this two story getaway combined with its close proximity to the beach, stores, bowling alleys and movie theaters make it a perfect ‘castle’ for beach royalty. 

For safety and security, the owners of this vacation rental home have equipped it with an external camera/ring doorbell at the front door.

During Spring and Summer this home requires a 7-night, Saturday to Saturday stay. Any other time we require a 4-night minimum stay.

relaxing retreat

Everything was clean and the atmosphere was amazing as we arrived. We enjoyed relaxing and hanging by the pool every bit as much as being down on the beach. Plenty of space for the 4 adults, 2 teenagers and and 4yr old to be together or have there own spaces to unwind.

House is conveniently a short distance from the beach. 2 min walk - Soon as you get to the beach they have chair rentals at the entrance so convenient. The house is nice and comfy multiple TVs and places to relax. We use the bbq for burgers and enjoyed the pool on a 65 degree day. THE HEATED POOL is great for cooler weather. My favorite part was the library of books inside the home and a big table so we can eat as a family. Really enjoyed I’ll definitely rent again.

Kids loved the pool. We were 2 families staying; (4 adults, 4 kids) the house was a good size with plenty of space for us. Having an easy walk to the beach with kids was ideal. Although they spent most of the time in the pool. House is a cozy family home, some wear and tear can be seen on the property but overall it was a wonderful vacation rental.

Sandcastle was nice and very clean. The only issue was the master suite fan and bathroom sink stopped up. The tv in the kids room outdated. I thought the home would be more modern but overall a great place to stay.

It was just what we wanted. Couldn't have asked for a better location or a better property. Only complaint was there was sand in the top bunk beds that was there when we arrived.

Submitted on May 20, 2021 through VRBO

Newman-Dailey Response:

We're so happy you enjoyed your stay and I want to apologize for sand being there in the top bunk. We would have been more than willing to get an inspector out or have a housekeeper go back and correct this had we have known. We look forward to having y'all again next time you are at the beach!

We miraculously found this rental property online and we are very grateful that we did. Amazing home, location, and property managers. Had a bit of trouble With the a/c but we were notified beforehand and the a/c company that came to fix it it’s beyond professional and prepared. Minor hiccup was fixed in record time and did not alter our experience whatsoever. We all had a great time, property is top notch, Great layout, very spacious and the backyard is a dream. Only a block away from the “private beach”, 5 mins away from Wholefoods, Walgreens, CVS, and restaurants. Everything is close by. Will definitely book again for next summer with time so that we can stay longer. House was also very clean and even had a sanitizer dispenser right in the entrance of the property (thoughtful touch). Can’t thank them enough for providing my family with this opportunity to spend some much needed quality time. Our kids did not want to leave and if we could have, we would have definitely extended the reservation. Thank you for all the memories... will see you soon... !

great house, great location



Our family loved staying at Sandcastle. The house had everything we needed, well stocked. The pool was very nice and an easy walk to the beach...only one block back. I would definitely stay at Sandcadtle again! Newman-Dailey provided quick and easy check in. We were well pleased with our overall experience. My only suggestion would be to have a combination lock on the back door. The back door is near the shower, pool, and parking. That is the door you would always access when coming in from the beach or after s night out. Thank you Newman-Dailey for making our week in Destin perfect!!

The property was a great floor plan and wonderfully staged! A perfect beach house to set the mood for vacation mode. Access to the beach was quick and soooooo convenient.

We very much enjoyed our stay and would come back to this property in a heartbeat!

We had a wonderful stay at Sandcastle. The home is beautiful and located on a quiet side street.

Sandcastle was absolutely perfect. The house is beautiful. Spacious, comfortable and very clean. Nestled in an adorable neighborhood. The outdoor pool was relaxing with beautiful lights for the evening. Plenty of beds and baths for all. There were a total of 8 women for a mom's get away. We had the most perfect time. The location is in the middle of everything. Walked to the beach. Shopping and restaurants couple minutes away. Already have next years trip planned and taking my family back in March. Destin is a beautiful area. Plan your vacation and book a week at Sandcastle you will love every minute of your vacation!

We had a great time even though the weather was a little iffy. Sandcastle was comfortable and the pool was an added bonus. We have been coming to Destin for 30 years and this is one of the nicest places we've stayed in. Thanks, Newman-Daily for the great service you provide We'll be back! My only wish was that the master bedroom bath had a walk-in shower instead of the high tub and shower combo. It's not so easy to get in and out of. Every thing else was perfect. Loved that back porch!

check-in was fast and easy. the fruit bowl that was delivered was a nice surprise. the driveway is a little narrow but the house was very comfortable. We have realized that the stairway is more than we want in the future as we get older. The master suite is nice but the bedspread is a little awkward and heavy. Loved the kitchen but do think there are way too many fake flower arrangements.
