    Julie W from Brandon, FL recommends this vacation rental

    First off The Seaside Property Shoppe was a a great management company to work with. I dealt mostly with Sharon and she was very professional but yet still warm and friendly. I never had any problems reaching her via the phone or email unlike some other mgmt. companies I have dealt with in the past. This property is great if you are looking for privacy and peacefulness. It is not by any means a luxury resort kind of place. Many would say that it badly needs an update, but we actually like the charm of older, not updated houses. Even though the appliances were all very old they worked perfectly. The only bad thing I would say it that the house is not as well maintained as a house we stayed in a few doors down, that was the exact same house (sadly that house was torn down this year). Some of the popcorn ceiling was peeling off, There was mold in the bathroom that had been grouted over and the doors to the outside in the bedrooms that face the intercoastal waterway were poorly hung/didn't fit the doorframe, so there were large gaps that was letting all the air conditioning escape. Both of those rooms remained fairly warm, though the fans did help. Overall though we were very happy with the house. We just hope that this one doesn't get sold or torn down and replaced with a multi unit place. It is so hard to find a place with so much privacy at reasonable rate.

    Elizabeth G from Lynchburg, VA recommends this vacation rental

    We arrived the Saturday after people were allowed back on the island following Hurricane Irma. Our house had some tree limbs down but was fine otherwise and was perfect for us. Occupancy for this house is 6 but I think it might be a little crowded for 6 adults. The beach was beautiful. We spent some time in John’s Passé, St Pete and Tampa while we were there but most of the time was spent on the beach. The restaurants were amazing - HIGHLY recommend Salt Rock Grill, Guppy’s and Slyce. And make sure you hit up Amuggler’s Cive Adventure Golf for a fun n round of mini golf!!

    The location for this property is excellent! The house and property definitely need some work--a little maintenance would go a long way. The house was clean and comfortable though. If you're looking for the perfect location on a beautiful beach, this is it. If you're looking for luxury and fancy amenities, this isn't the place.

      Thank you for taking the time to rate our vacation home. In reference to your comment, "If you're looking for luxury and fancy amenities, this isn't the place", we clearly state in the description " If you are looking for upscale then Castaways is not for you!

    We loved our stay,family of 7 there was plenty of space the home was a little dated but everything was in working order. we didn't come for the decor we came for the beach and it's right outside the back porch! Renting was a breeze no problems at all. Loved johns pass and Clearwater marine. Second year to stay in this area and I don't see that changing

    THIS BEACH HOUSE WAS PERFECT FROM EVERY VANTAGE POINT. THE GENEROUS PORCH PROVIDE OCEAN FRONT DINING FOR MOST EVENINGS. SEASIDE PROVIDE THE VERY BEST IN CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM THE VERY START TO OUR EXIT, EVEN ALLOWING THE USE OF THE FAX MACHINE A FEW TIMES. SHARON IN PARTICULAR WAS SIMPLY FANTASTIC IS EVERY CAPACITY AS A LEASE AGENT. I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND SEASIDE AND SHARON TO ALL WHO ARE INTERESTED IN STAYING ON THE BEACH IN THIS AREA

    We really enjoyed our stay. We had the extra rooms so our kids from Tampa could come for week-ends. The location is perfect and beach views are more than perfect. It is a great place. Could do with less beach stuff in corner down stairs.

    Robin B from Newmarket, Ontario recommends this vacation rental

    We loved our stay at the Castaway, and would definitely come back. The beach is much closer than it appears in the pictures. We did not mind the vintage kitchen or bathrooms, but some might. Our one suggestion would be for a better stocked kitchen - more plates, bowls, and cooking equipment needed. As it was, we had to go out thrifting for a tea pot, water pitcher, and cooking pot just to make our stay smoother.

    Great house, older but very clean inside, great location and absolutely loved the porch. There was some old floats and umbrellas that needed to be thrown away under the porch, it would have made a big difference in the appearance. It was really nice that there was a bay across the street. I would definitely rent again!

    This was the second time we have stayed at this property and we will continue to go back. The location is amazing with good parking capacity. The house is private with your own beach access right outside your door. The beach is almost private and very family oriented. GREAT PLACE !!!

    Maria W from Summerville, SC recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed at Cast Away for a week and just came back home. It was one of the best family vacation so far!!!! The house was as described, the agency was very friendly and helpful. It was unforgettable experience in many ways: deck with the Gulf view where we spent all the time being off the beach eating , resting and just hanging out; private beach with nobody to disturb us that gave us a feeling of being isolated from everyday life and just enjoy time with friends and family; best handmade ice-cream shop in area just 5-7 mins walk away, great view. We got to see a whole family of manatees and dolphins. The house itself is not new and needs some renovations but it was clean and had everything we needed like soup, dishes, some spices,lots of towels, dishwasher, coffee machine, washer and dryer that we used a few times, even a whole basket of beach towels, extra sheets, different size pans etc... The only thing I would suggest is to do some work on AC. It was working great for the living room and front bedroom but other two bedroom were a little hot and didn't cool down. Overall we loved this place and thinking about reserving it for next year.

    a guest from Mechanicville, NY recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed at the Cast-A-Way for three months, mid-January through mid-April, as snowbirds to escape the winter up north. We had never stayed right on the water before, and it was great to watch and listen to the surf from our porch. The location is fantastic with restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance. The house itself is a bit dated but we were quite comfortable there. A big flat screen tv and cable and WiFi satisfied our entertainment needs. A couple of small problems came up but the property managers were extremely responsive and resolved things almost immediately. We definitely recommend the Cast-A-Way to anyone wanting a nice, private stay on the beach.

    We had an amazing time here with our kids.. The beach is almost private and we played cornhole and sand golf and relaxed it was amazing. The house is older but the beds were nice the kitchen had everything you could need including a kuerig. We ate nearly every meal on the deck looking at the ocean.. Grill had full propane which we used for several meals. Just an all around great beach house vacation you could walk to several restaurant options but why would you when you have beach front dining on that amazing deck? One of our best vacations.
