Southern Rentals and Real Estate has Partnered with Sandcastle Escapes.

“This acquisition opens up new guest potential for Southern creating a direct positive impact to local businesses,” said General Manager Chad Blankenship.

Local management company Southern Vacation Rentals has joined forces with another vacation rental company, Sandcastle Escapes. The recent acquisition further builds on Southern’s position as a leading provider of Destin and 30A vacation rentals, homes and condos.

The acquisition has added over 100 new properties to their offerings, creating an incredible collection of rentals. Visitors can choose from vacation homes with stunning gulf front views to delightful beach condos along Scenic Hwy 30A. These new properties give guests more options than ever. The timing is perfect as Southern’s bookings take off for spring and summer stays. Recognizing a longer booking window, their properties are filling up faster than they did at this time last year. This is encouraging for their and other vacation rental businesses along the coast.

“We are thrilled to expand our presence in the increasingly popular areas of 30A,” said Chad Blankenship, General Manager. “This acquisition opens up new guest potential for Southern creating a direct positive impact to local businesses.”

In addition to the new inventory of rentals, Southern was able to keep several Sandcastle employees on staff, including former owner Taylor Williams. Southern Rentals and Real Estate hopes to continue to grow in both the Destin and 30A markets and with the support of a strong team, the outlook is promising.
