Wonderful Vacation    Apr 22, 2017




This is the second year we rented the Sand'N Sea Cottage. We had a wonderful vacation. The house is very bright & cheery & was very clean. Location is good - close to pool & beach. We also enjoyed just sitting out in the front enjoying the breeze.

Kathy Shampine's reply:

Hi Nima! I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope you will be coming back again next year!

Beautiful property!    Oct 01, 2016




We couldn't have been more pleased. Upon arrival, the unit was clean and ready for us (even though we arrived a few hours early). Further, it was very well designed and perfectly suited for our family to enjoy vacation. Hands down, it's the best cottage we stayed at in Destin. Kathy and Mike Shampine (Kastle Keepers property management group) are a joy to work with from beginning to end - from pointing us in the right direction when we book our stay to making sure all is well while we are there. I highly recommend working with them, regardless of where you make your reservations. They truly are second to none!

Kathy Shampine's reply:

Thank you so much for this lovely review. I hope you will come back again soon!!!

Awesome Vacation and Location    Jun 10, 2016



We were all very pleased with this house. It met all of our expectations. We had 6 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of room for all of us. Loved that it was super close to the beach and pool and local restaurants. Kathy was great.  I would highly recommend this property without hesitation. You won't be disappointed at all! Thank you Kathy!!!
