Guest Testimonials & Press Reviews

I have only been doing this rental thing since Spring Break, 2007 and almost all of my guests have turned out to be friendly, happy folks who have proven to be appreciative of my efforts to make the place nice and exhibited respect for the property. My life has become richer from meeting all the great people who have chosen to stay here.

If you enjoyed your stay with me and don’t mind saying so, I would love to hear from you. In fact, I would love to hear from you even if your stay was less than perfect and there was something I could have done to make it better. I won’t promise that I will post it on this page, but I will take your comments under advisement. Fire away!

SandBox Inn Review (Hey! I'm an "Institution!")

From: "Where to Find Luxury Vacation Rentals in South Padre Island" at

The SandBox Inn - Owned and operated by local institution "Sandy Feet," the Sandbox Inn is an eclectic mixture of contemporary fusion and old-world creativity. As the top half of her beach house, Sandy Feet rents out the space to families with a creative edge. Use her back yard for creative purposes and bring her a rock when you come!

I love this.

This condo is so spacious. Loved having two decks to enjoy. The house is so thoughtfully equipped. The location is great. Definitely would love to stay again

*****Funky Fun at Sandy Feet's Sand Box, April 15, 2009
By Pam Smith (Austin, TX)
This spacious A-frame home is eye candy and an artist's retreat. You'll find Lucinda "Sandy Feet" right downstairs & available for professional sandcastle lessons; I highly recommend them. The large kitchen and open floor plan give you more than enough room for all kinds of entertaining...from the piano, pool table (fun & relaxing), puzzles, tv, and IPod stereos to BBQ'ing w/blended drink in hand on the back porch, or just relaxing while you draw, paint, or have breakfast on the front porch while the sun rises to the east. This is my fav. place on South Padre Island, except maybe the beach.

Well we arrived home safe and sound after two LONG days of driving.  We enjoyed our stay at the Sand Box very much and it was just perfect in every way for us.  I can't think of a single thing I could recommend you would change.  I especially like the idea of your providing a GUEST  (FAQ) MANUAL.  You covered all the questions.

    We had three meals at Blackbeards and enjoyed them all.  Kitty was a joy to have around and absolutely no trouble at all.

    Hope you did well in your competition at Port Aransas.

    Thank you again for providing the perfect accommodations.

Stan & Mitch S.
