Beachfront Luxury Home, Indoor Elevator; Family and Pet Friendly; Sleeps 30

5 King Bedrooms; 2 BunkRooms (sleeps 16); 2 Queen Sleeper Sofas; 7 1/2 Baths

If your tribe of family and friends have outgrown other vacation homes and you can't bring yourself to vote anyone off the Island - then Susan's Sand Castle III is the perfect beachhouse for groups up to 30!

Locals refer to the area as Pleasure Island (ever since the IntraCoastal Waterway was built fifty years ago). So whether your pleasure is water sports, sunning on the beach; or digging for treasure, this beach house provides the perfect place to do just that! With our subtropical climate , you can enjoy year-round fishing, golfing, cruising and more; however we don't recommend Gilligan's Three-Hour Tour!

Whether you ride the elevator or take the stairs - when you first arrive - you should really start on the top floor for the amazing view of the Gulf, which just about takes your breath away!

The Great Room, includes the Living, Dining and Kitchen areas in one enormous space on the top floor. The Living Area has plenty of comfortable seating, with a 55" curved-screen Smart Samsung TV, Blu-Ray, DVD, and Speakers. Guests are welcome to enjoy the extensive book collection, board and card games housed on the bookshelves and cabinets below.

The Kitchen has a massive Island, for meal-prep or to serve meals buffet-style. No problem to have multiple cooks in this Kitchen! Two large refrigerators are provided: one is a stainless french-door, with freezer below; and the other is located in the Utility Room. A built-in icemaker makes 35 pounds of ice a day and is a guest favorite, along with a large microwave, glass-top stove with five burners and two ovens; two full size dishwashers are also provided for your convenience. The double sink has a garbage disposal.

Every imaginable small kitchen appliance is also provided, and we have more than double what any group would need of dishes, bowls, glasses and silverware, along with serving dishes, mixing bowls, pots and pans. A spice rack is filled with a wide array of spices to complement any meal your designated chefs create.

The dining table seats 20; with seating for 4 at the Kitchen island; and another 10 can sit at the Balcony picnic table. An incredible 24" by 48" gas griddle is located on the Balcony, just off the Dining Room, for cooking pancakes, bacon, sausage, fried eggs, burgers, hot dogs and steaks!

Two King Master Suites: one on the third floor and one on the second, have direct access to the Balcony or the Deck. Both have whirlpool tubs, separate walk-in showers, and are wheelchair accessible.

Three additional King Suites are located on the second floor, and all face the Gulf, with french-door access to the immense Deck. Two Bunk Room Suites: one on the 3rd floor and the other on the 2nd, do not have outdoor access. Both have their own private bathroom with shower/tubs. Each Bunk Room sleeps up to eight children on two bunk beds, each with full size mattresses on top and bottom. The third floor Bunk Room also has a game table. Two Queen Sleeper sofas are in the Great Room for additional guests.

All bedrooms have their own flat-screen Smart TV, so feel free to stream a movie and relax.

For teens who want a place to hangout, there is a huge built-in picnic table under the house. Families will enjoy this space for charcoal grilling, craw fish boils and cooler summer breezes.

The Deck runs the full width of the beach house and has not only loungers, but deck chairs galore, as well as small group seating areas, so that you can retreat to your own little corner of paradise. Enjoy your coffee as you watch the sun rise to the east and a glass of wine as the sun sets to the west. Don't hold us to the dolphin's schedule - but typically you can see them swim by every day between 9 - 10 a.m. and then again between 3 - 4 p.m.

Feel free to take our deck chairs with you to the beach each day. We just ask that you bring them back each evening, as nesting Sea Turtle Mommas can get tangled up or confused when they come ashore at night. June through August - we have a professionally installed and maintained 10' X 20' Beach Canopy for guests to enjoy while playing on the beach.

The Sand Dune Walkover (Boardwalk) is magnificent and there is a sitting area halfway down with built-in benches, so you can be closer to the water at sunrise or sunset.

An interior elevator is provided for your convenience in transporting groceries and luggage, as well as for anyone with mobility challenges; however please do not allow children to use it - as it is not a toy.

A full size HE Washer and Dryer are located in the second floor Laundry Room. Towels, wash cloths, beach towels, linens, pillows and comforters are provided for no additional fee.

Two fabulous community swimming pools and two incredible tennis courts, are all within walking distance of our beach house.

If the Beach is calling your name and you long for the serenity that only Sand and Surf can bring; send us a message now to find out when your group can have your next beach adventure!

This beach house is perfect for Family Reunions; Vacations with Family/Friends; Weddings; Corporate Retreats; Girfriend Get-Aways; Guys Deep Sea Fishing Week; and more! Snowbirds are welcome to contact us about renting by the month. There is a $1,500.00 surcharge for weddings.

We have two other beachfront luxury homes: one located in the Morgantown sub-division and the other, three miles closer to Ft Morgan. 

We have so many loyal returning guests for all three of our beach houses that our Reservation Calendar fills up quickly for peak times and they often reserve "their week" years in advance , but we love to make new friends and welcome your inquiry. We do our best to respond in under an hour, but because we don't recharge on coffee alone - we do try to sleep at some point, therefore will respond to late night inquiries first thing the next morning.

We are currently accepting reservations through the end of 2021.

Exceeded expectations!    Oct 25, 2018

This beautiful house served very well for our recent ladies retreat. It is located directly on the beach, and it beautifully appointed. The property manager was very accommodating and communicated thoroughly, which is always great. Our group was overwhelmingly pleased with the experience, and we hope to go back soon!

Absolutely Breath Taking    Aug 20, 2018

It was one of the best trips we had. The house is bigger than the pictures show. It was like having a second home, they had everything, all you need is clothes.

The canopy on the beach was big as well, we enjoyed the beach all day.

Well worth the drive!!

Susan’s Sandcasrle III was a great home away from home for a week!    Aug 07, 2018

The house is in a perfect location with nice large decks to enjoy the view. It is very well cared for. I loved that they went the extra step to paint the decking, supply comfy beds and a nice big well-stocked kitchen. We also loved having the beach canopy and felt like we had the beach to ourselves. They were all very accommodating and prompt to reply to any questions or concerns. We will be back next year!

Family reunion to remember.    Jun 25, 2018

Our family met up at Susan's Sandcastle III for a wonderful week. The house was perfect for gathering all of our extended family. The huge table easily accommodated all of our guests. We enjoyed he decks with the amazing view. The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. The only access to the beach and lower balcony was through the main level bedrooms which was not always convenient for guests, but we worked it out. We spent most of our time at the beach which was perfect for our young children and teenagers. We had a great experience and would love to do it all again.

Beautiful, spacious and wonderful location on the beach!    Jun 21, 2018

Great communication from owners and local property manager. Beautiful house, stocked with everything a large group would need for cooking. We had a family of 26 in three generations--room for joint activities and room for individuals to find some alone time. Plenty of chairs in kitchen, on decks and on beach. Lots of beach gear, games and books. Best family vacation we have had in 40 years.

Everything AWESOME!!    Jun 20, 2018

Location, location. location. So thankful we chose this location as the private beach was so nice for our family to enjoy.

It was great being able to walk from the deck directly on out on to the white sand beach.

The house was awesome and perfect for our group of 18 family members. The owners have thought of pretty much everything you need to make your stay wonderful. Dana responded very quickly to any questions and/or concerns we had. Hope to visit Gulf Shores/Fort Morgan and Susan's Sand Castle again!!
