Sandcastle Escapes Vacation Rentals Launches New Mobile App
February 21, 2013 by SoWal Staff
Sandcastle Escapes Vacation Rentals is excited to announce the launch of its new, free app available to Apple and Android mobile users. Developed by Sandcastle Escapes owner and president, Taylor Williams, the app allows guests to conveniently search for properties, arrange bookings, and customize their trip before and during their stay.
“Developing our own app was an exciting undertaking. At Sandcastle Escapes we continually strive to enhance our guests’ vacation experience while also minimizing any extra cost to our owner-partners”, said Taylor Williams, Sandcastle Escapes President. “Just as we make extra effort to purchase local products for housekeeping and maintenance, it only made sense to develop this app ourselves, keeping the cost down and the product truly local.”
Williams, who has a background in internet marketing, made every effort to include key features he knew guests would appreciate while on vacation. The app includes information about Sandcastle Escapes vacation properties, concierge services, local events, weather forecasts, photos, and important contact information for visitors.
According to Audrey Price, Director of Sandcastle Escapes, the new app will help enhance the entire beach experience for their on-the-go vacationers.“With our new mobile app we are enabling a new level of convenience and efficiency that will further improve meeting our guests needs. We know that our guests rely on their mobile devices now more than ever, and we’re glad to provide them with this exciting new service and the unique Sandcastle Escapes experience, all in the palm of their hand.”

- Savers Amenity Program: exclusive discounts and offers for guests from a variety of vendors (golf, dining, charter boats, activity rentals)
