Sugar Dunes condo description

LIFE SHINES on "Sugar Shack", a luxury condominium located in the charming beach town of Seagrove, where families have been making the pilgrimage to its soothing shores since the 1940s, and the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of those early pioneers still return to relax in some of the very same cinder-block cottages of their youth. Today, Seagrove Beach is a rewarding mix of old and new, from its eclectic laid-back beach retreats to its numerous restaurants. Seagrove Beach is located on historic 30A, which is a 20-mile scenic shore tucked quietly between Destin and Panama City Beach, Florida. Speckled with artsy villages, rare coastal dune lakes, upscale resorts, funky beach bars, world-class restaurants and 25,000 acres of protected habitats, Florida's Scenic Highway 30A is the birthplace of "New Urbanism" and is also home to the most beautiful beaches in the world. Seagrove Beach is just a short bike ride or walk to Seaside and a five minute ride to Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Grayton Beach and Watercolor Beach.


SUGAR SHACK: Sugar Shack is not a typical rental property, and is not meant for everyone. It is an amazingly large, 1,800 square foot, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom + loft residence on the 4th (and top) floor of the Sugar Dunes complex, and is decorated with high end furnishings meant to be enjoyed and appreciated. It's not just a rental - it's a home away from home. Couches and duvets are not dark and patterned to hide stains. Rather Sugar Shack is exquisitely decorated to appreciate the open layout and panoramic view of the ocean. Lounge in a grand room with twenty foot ceilings or take in the sights and sounds coming from the crystal clear water and sugar white sand from a 750 square foot covered, private deck. Walk down to the beach using a door and stairway which leads directly to the sand, or stay on the patio and enjoy the sunset with a cool glass of wine and fine cheese from one of the many nearby artisanal markets nearby.


DINING: Florida's Scenic Highway 30A is home to a wonderfully diverse variety of world-class restaurants, from AAA-rated fine dining establishments to deliciously casual seafood shacks. Boasting countless awards and honors, the Chefs of 30A are among some of the most talented culinary artists in the world. Some notable culinary must haves are: (i) Old Florida Fish House (Seagrove); (ii) Café Thirty-A (Seagrove); (iii) Bud & Alley's (Seaside): (iv) Red Bar (Grayton Beach); (v) Spicy Noodle (Inlet Beach); and (vi) Fish Out Of Water (Watercolor Beach).


ADVENTURE: Rent a kayak and explore Deer Lake State Park and Eastern Lake, which are located on either side of Sugar Shack. Rent a bicycle and cruise to Seaside, Rosemary or Grayton Beaches along the 25 mile hike and bike trail located adjacent to Highway 30A. For the more adventuresome, charter a fishing guide and fish the bays for trout, redfish, and pompano, or go offshore and reel in marlin, snapper, cobia, sailfish, grouper, tuna and amberjack!


GETTING THERE & AWAY: Driving to Sugar Shack is easy from the east or west. From Destin or Panama City Beach, Highway 98 leads to Highway 30A. Once on Highway 30A, you're right around the corner! From the air, use the Panama City International Airport (ECP), which opened in 2010, has service from Southwest Airlines and Delta Airlines. Driving distance from the Panama City International Airport to Sugar Shack is just 20 minutes!

                            Our family, some from Texas and some from Florida, enjoyed Thanksgiving in your condo. It had everything we needed and plenty of room to spread out. It was helpful to have the elevators for luggage and grocery trips. The views from the balcony were gorgeous, both sunrise and sunset. The condo is beautifully decorated. We would love to go back!!

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, girls getaway, families with young children, romantic getaway.

The unit is well appointed and clean. My only complaint is that they didn't tell us in advance to bring ALL personal items. I didn't like learning at bedtime that we weren't to use their washcloths to remove makeup. On second trip, I knew the drill!

The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The unit, Sugar Shack, was lovely. The only problems were the lack of consumable amenities that I expect: shampoos, hair dryer, kitchen soap, and washcloths or alternatives for removing makeup. The absence of those amenities should be noted on the rental agreement, not discovered at bedtime! Otherwise, no problems.

                            Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was more than happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The condo is nicely decorated. Kitchen furnishings were about standard. Everything was ready on time and clean. I was surprised to find the ice maker full of ice. The balcony is large and furnished with 3 bar height chairs and a bar height table plus two standard height chairs, a side table and a foot stool. The only inconvenience was securing the condo while we were on the beach. Someone always had to walk all the way around the building and unlock the condo and the patio door so that everyone else could enter the condo from the beachside steps. A key for the door leading to the steps would solve this problem. Bookthatcondo would receive a 4 star rating because of two things. They were quick to return emails and answer questions until they had received a signed copy of the rental agreement, but ignored some emails afterward. Also when the elevator would not operate I was told that there was nothing they could do about it and I was given a number to call. I explained that I was their guest and I expected them to take care of the problem which they eventually did. Here is a tip concerning beach service: Umbrellas 4 U had the best prices. Since no beach service is provided, shopping around can save you some serious money. Google "beach service Seagrove Beach, FL." The beach is posted as Private but no attempt is made to keep the public visitors away from the Sugar Dunes beach and in the public access area. Wifi worked perfectly. No large flat screen TVs. Grills were dirty. Traffic in the area was heavy. It took about 25 minutes to get to the Publix about 3 miles away. For the price of this condo I feel that beach service should be included in season. The white upholstery was of some concern,.

                          Why Sugar Dunes:
                          It would be impossible for someone to design a set of more picturesque beach communities than Seagrove, Seaside, Rosemary Beach, Grayton Beach and Alys Beach. What we specifically love about Seagrove is that it is much more quiet than its neighbors, and we often sit on the patio and watch the sunset with dolphins are our nearest neighbor. Yet, the charming square in Seaside is a cruiser bike ride away where we can enjoy delightful theatre, movies in the park, worldclass art exhibits and galleries, and excellent cuisine and nightlife. From deep fried food trailers to extremely fine dining, Seagrove has it all within walking distance. It's impossible not to let yourself slow down and enjoy the leisurely pace of life as it exists on 30a. In short, if we're not there, we're thinking about being there.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          No other house gives you 1,800 square feet, 20 foot ceilings and a covered and private 750 square foot deck with a 180 degree view of the ocean. If you look out the window, you see three colors -- blue, emerald green, and white. It just doesn't get any better than that. Plus, getting to the beach is through a private and exclusive stairway that leads from the deck directly to the sand. Sometimes we never even leave the house! But, when we do, we head to the beach or to downtown Seagrove or Seaside. No matter what, Sugar Shack is impossible not to love.
