Our relatives put their guests up here. Unit 23 was just refurnished (think Embassy/,Hampton Suites). The units are about 600 square feet and not cloustrophobic. Air conditioning cooled to 64 degrees at night, a must for us. The unit was spotless and the water view from the screened in lanai was an added bonus. The small Poole was heated to...

We spent a week in unit 11 and absolutely loved it. The condo we rented was furnished with excellent quality furnishing and fixtures. The kitchen was fully equipped. The en suite bathrooms were very convenient and offered us plenty of privacy. All units had a screened in porch with view of the tropical landscaping. Ted at the reception was very...

visited last weekend and loved it again, as ever. the amenities are terrific, the privacy and intimacy are great and RVA does a great job running the property. Both the bay side units and the gulf side ones are tremendous.

Nice, clean and very cosy self catering apartments. Few steps to the beaches with lovely sunsets. Short car ride to Siesta Keys and Anna Maria Island if you want to visit other beaches. Would love to come back!

The views and the walk to the beach were amazing. Worth the money. The kitchen and baths were very up to date. Showers, AC, blinds, and parking get an A+. What was problematic was the lack of paper products and fresh towels. We stayed four nights and paid over 1,200 dollars and were told we would only have toilet paper...

We stayed just 3 short nights over spring break. We stayed in unit #22 which is upstairs and it was furnished very well and very quiet. I've rented many condos and homes and this one was stocked very well. Although the unit didn't have its own washer/dryer they did have one to use free of charge a few units away....

RVAFlorida, Manager at Beach Castle Resort, responded to this review

We were disappointed to hear of this guests experience at Beach Castle Resort. Unit #26 is not managed by the onsite management company, RVA, but rather by another local management company on the island. Since each unit is privately owned - they are at the owner's personal discretion. We recommend all potential guests considering a Beach Castle vacation book with...

Our favorite "private" beach in the US. Beach castle never disappoints. The proximity to the gulf, amenities and amazing restaurants within walking distance are spectacular. Great for families, couples and anyone frankly looking for a peaceful getaway.
