Beachfront Home with Large Deck; Family & Pet Friendly; Sleeps up to 16!

5 Bedrooms: 2 Kings; 2 Queens; 1 with 2 Full Beds; and 2 Queen Sleeper Sofas

Entering our Morgantown neighborhood, is like opening a fresh box of crayons – for you immediately see the most colorful array of beach homes, standing at attention on the Boulevard. Houses in apple green; salmon; grey with cobalt trim; and when you turn toward the beach, onto our street – even more colors - too unique to name; and then you see it: the most-lovely goldenrod grand beach house sits up ahead, on your right.

When you pull into the drive, you can’t help but smile – as the realization washes over you like a tidal wave: “I get to stay at this amazing beach house all week!”

Most guests head straight up the stairs, under the house, directly to the huge Deck that faces the Gulf. Leave your luggage in your trunk; then run, as fast as you can, up those stairs. Go ahead: cry, laugh – or pause, and let the peace start to come over you. You, my friend, have the next several days to let go of your cares and let the beach heal your soul.

At some point, when you’re willing to break free from the call of the sea; you’ll head straight into the Great Room – which is incredibly spacious and inviting. The Living Room area has a huge leather couch; love seat and very comfortable chairs. It’s a great place to congregate, after a day in the sun, in front of the large flat-screen Smart TV. A Blu-Ray Player and DVD player are provided for your use. Our incredible sound system also pipes your favorite music out to the Deck. Board and card games are also provided.

The Kitchen is huge and readily accommodates a number of cooks (or helpers). Two Refrigerators (one housed in the Utility Room); an icemaker, which makes 35 pounds of ice per day; dishwasher; stove/oven and microwave are provided; as well as every imaginable small kitchen appliance. The Kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, glassware, mixing bowls, pots and pans and silverware.

The round dining table comfortably seats 6; with seating for another 6 at the Kitchen island bar; and another 4 at the unique dolphin table. For outdoor dining, a teak table, that seats 8, is conveniently located on the Deck, right outside the Great Room door. A large gas griddle is a great place to cook up burgers, hotdogs, steaks or even pancakes! A charcoal grill is also provided, under the house.

A large Master King Suite is conveniently located just steps away from the Great Room and has amazing views to the east and towards the beach. The Master Bath has a fabulous jetted tub; separate shower, long single vanity and walk-in closet.

The second Master King Suite is located on the top floor and has direct access to the Balcony, through French doors. The Balcony is a great place to drink your morning coffee; or talk late into the night with family and friends. The Master Bath is massive and also has a jetted tub, separate shower, and long double vanity, and walk in closet.

Two Queen Bedrooms: one located on the main floor, and the one upstairs has direct Balcony access through French doors. Both bedrooms have closets and flat-screen Smart TVs. The downstairs Queen room has access to a full bathroom in the hallway, with a shower/tub combo. The Queen room upstairs shares a hall bathroom, also with a shower/tub combo, with Bedroom #5.

Two full size beds are located in Bedroom #5 and also has a flat screen Smart TV and a closet.

An upstairs Loft is a great place for children or teens to hang out and watch TV. There is a Queen Sleeper Sofa in the Loft and another one in the Great Room. For your reading enjoyment, a massive collection of books are on the bookshelves. “Take one, leave one” is all we ask.

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

The large Deck is a great place for sunning, playing or catching up with family and friends. Beach toys galore, including sandcastle-making tools, Frisbees, noodles, boogie boards and more are provided for the young and young-at-heart! Feel free to take our Deck chairs with you to the beach each day; but please bring them back each evening, as summer is Sea Turtle Nesting Season and when those mommas come ashore at night, they can get tangled in stuff left behind. The months of June through August – for no additional charge - our guests are provided a 10’ X 20’ Beach Canopy that is professionally installed and maintained.

The Sand Dune Walkover is conveniently attached to the Deck and allows you and your gear to get down to the beach with little effort. Part way down, a seating area, is the perfect place to watch the sun rise or set. Plan to spend at least one early morning enjoying the ever-changing colorful sunrise. Every 90 seconds a different color palette and pattern appear.

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

So if you’re planning to “Beach Bum” it all week, or want daily adventures by land or by sea, Susan’s Sand Castle I, is the perfect place to be! Contact us 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.

Big Beautiful house Long Beachfront and stocked with plenty of things we need for the weekend    Nov 08, 2018

We had a relaxing and fun weekend. There was plenty of space for our large group and enjoyed the big deck and beachfront views. Dana was super helpful host and very accommodating to all our needs

Beautiful Home, Wonderful Time    Aug 21, 2018

Our family had an amazing time. The house was beautiful and Dana was so helpful. We were celebrating our parents 50th anniversary with family and the house was just perfect for this. Dana even brought by a gift for them. We had a couple of small issues and they were taken care of immediately. It was amazing to be able to stay so close to the water and have a canopy provided. We will definitely stay here again!!!

Wonderful experience and great home    Jul 04, 2018

Awesome!    Jun 28, 2018

We loved staying at your beach house. It had everything we needed and then some. We especially loved the tent that was already set up on the beach. The porch was great for outside dining and watching the sun rise and set each day. The Blue Angels put on a great show too. We didn't have a drop of rain and were able to enjoy many hours at the beach. We can't wait to come back to your sandcastle again!! We did discover a new place to eat in GS- CoastAL- it's by the Zoo and Tiki Golf. There's also a yummy ice cream shop there. Thanks for all your personal touches. Dana was of immense help and kept us very informed.

Awesome family experience    Jun 17, 2018

The home is beautiful and perfect fo our sized family and had most everything we needed or wanted. And for anything else, the property manager, Dana, was amazing! Dana was awesome throughout the entire process and I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. She sent is pictures of things we wondered about before our arrival, she came out a few times to deliver little extra things that helped our vacation. She is the ultimate in client satisfaction. We have 6 adults and 4 small children in the family so the bed situation and layout was ideal. The ramp to the beach makes it so easy. No steps to worry about. We rented a golf cart and the kids really enjoyed that. You could walk to the pool but the cart made it more fun. My grandkids loved ‘chasing’ the ice cream man in the cart each day. There is no home that will be ‘perfect’ for everyone’s needs but this one in addition to Dana’s attention made it as close to perfect as could be.
