House is great! View is amazing!
laura m. | Aug 2021
Our family loved our Texas Beach vacation staying at this home, Jordan's Sandcastle. We had 12 family members from wide ranging ages 5 to 77 and everyone enjoyed the essentially private beach in front of this great property at their own pace and liking. The multiple decks and great chairs are perfect for having conversations and overlooking the vast Gulf of Mexico and watch and listen to the calming, relaxing sounds of endless waves landing on Bolivar Peninsula. The sunrise views are perfect from this home every morning and provide daily reminders of appreciating life and existence in this wonderful universe. At night watching the vast night sky from the large decks is as good as it gets in Southeast Texas. You can see the Milky Way Dust with the billions of stars in the sky overlooking the Gulf and we saw shooting stars or meteors stream across the night sky most every night. You can tell the owners and the company the owners uses go all out to ensure the house is a very comfortable vacation HOME. The kitchen is large and has a lot of eating areas from the bar and the dining table area and has everything you need to cook and the refrigerator keeps the beer cold! The beds are comfortable and the bathroom showers are large and accommodating. The decks have great and comfortable chairs and benches, there are grills below the house and hoses in multiple areas to shower off and clean your beach stuff. We see there were comments about the smell of smoke odor. The owner advised they took the home off renting for a week and did a formal and thorough airing out and HVAC duct and filters deep cleaning. Our family did not notice any odors and had a very fun and pleasant stay not having any issues like seen in some comments. We look forward to staying at Jordan's sandcastle again, what a great home and top notch beach vacation experience on our great Gulf Coast!
