Good size, but a little work to set up!
Mandy from Lynchburg, VA – Verified Buyer
This beach shelter is a great size. It could easily fit 3 people inside it. There are mesh "windows" that have flap covers so you can block out the sun from one side but still get a breeze so you don't get too hot. The set up is very much that of a tent. There are 3 poles that run through channels on the tent. With the wind on the beach, you definitely need 2 people to set it up. One to make sure it doesn't blow away and one to thread the poles through. Set up takes a little time, but after a few days, it goes a lot faster. One complaint is the bag it comes in. It is so tiny that it would not go back in after we took the shelter down the first day.
Good for kids
Ellen from Chicago, IL – Verified Buyer
Bought this for a family reunion and beach trip for my kiddos. I was hoping that they would nap in it during the day; that didn't happen, but it did give them a "quiet" area to go relax. When out in the sun, it does get really hot; we always tried to turn the opening away from the sun and when possible put it in the shade - I've heard that the heat does get trapped in all of these though, not just this model. If you open the "windows" (flaps roll up and secure) you get a little bit of a breeze. It wasn't that easy to set up the first time - I was a little nervous about breaking the supports because you need to bend them so much - however, once you set it up once, it is easy to do again.
Comical Beach Tent Experience
Rosemarie from Agawam, MA – Verified Buyer
Overall, I was pleased with my purchase however the directions were not very explicit or detailed. We had to ask for help from other beach goers. The purpose of my purchase was to use at the beach and the spikes that came with the tent weren't really strong enough support the tent - they kept popping out of the sand. And packing up the tent wasn't as easy as I thought it would be - I never got it back into the original packaging!!! :(
Beautiful Shelter Tent
Alex from GAINESVILLE, FL – Verified Buyer
We put it up on our backyard to test it out and our dog loved it :-). It also survived a big rain shower and has not rusted so far. Not difficult to assemble.

love it, sets up fast, stays in place in the wind, just needs some velcro to help hold the window flaps down. the sun gets in.

My daughter loves being inside her princess castle. We take it to the beach or we camp outside in the backyard this is her hide away.

Exactly what I was looking for for our family beach vacation. I have 2 fair babies so this will let them enjoy the beach while being safe
Cabana Beach Shelter
Joanne from Robbinsville, NJ – Verified Buyer
Used it only once, wish I had tried to put it together before actually using it. The directions were sort of sketchy, the print was faded and you couldn't see how the darn thing was supposed to look without the box. My son and daughter kept fussing with it until they got it somewhat assembled. I wish I had looked into a popup shelter, it may gave been easier. As far as looks and functionality went, the colors are nice, provides sufficient shade. The wind did kick it up a few times, but nothing severe. I'd give it a so so rating.
