The big discrepancy here is that Hyrule Castle in Wind Waker is built on a tiny island in the middle of a lake. It's possible that, when rebuilding the castle, the Hylians themselves created that lake as a way of helping secure the castle from any future threat. It would have taken a huge amount of work but this is a society with easy access to explosives as well as magic so I can see this being possible. Another possibility is that the castle on the island was a result of the Goddesses flooding the world. The flood presumably did a great deal of damage to the landscape and that might explain this situation.
Remember that when Ganondorf destroyed the old castle he left a large crater; the Hylians have no need of creating a new one.


The Notorious M.O.P.

The Temple of Time in SS is indeed not the one on the other games. You see, Rauru built a new Temple of Time after the Sealed Temple crumbled and died, there he made the new Temple of Time. IN Ocarina of Time the Temple is in Castle Town, Yes, but perhaps during the long years after Link's departure back to his childhood, the Master sword is still in the temple of time. castle Town could've been rebuilt somewhere else while the Sacred grove stayed there and rotted, the sacred grove in TP used to be the Temple of time too. the Lost Woods could've been moved too, maybe the old lost woods were torn down and a new lost woods found it's reputation someplace else. In TWW the Master Sword ended up sealed in Ganon's head forever, stating that the Master Sword may never again be seen again in that timeline.
The simplest answer is that there were unnamed heroes too, they could've used the Master Sword as well and found it a resting place somewhere else, that's why the Master Sword was in Hyrule Castle in TWW. That last sentence is my simple answer to your question.
