About Sugar Sands Vacation Rentals.

We are a family of three living in Knoxville, TN who found ourselves returning to the Emerald Coast of the Destin area and love it.

Why Sugar Sands Vacation Rentals. chose Fort Walton Beach

We love all the amenities that Destin West has to offer, from the multiple pools, uncrowded beach, walking distance to beachside restaurants, shops and the Ft Walton fishing pier, and finally, the award winning Lazy River. Plus, being on the ground floor and one of the closest units to the beach, we love walking right out the back door to the pool and the front door to the beach walkway! We wish for you to enjoy our place as much as we do!

What makes this condo unique

Super convenient to the beach, pools, outdoor grill, and the little known use of Ramada Inn's splash pad. Easy walk to the lazy river. Never feel crowded.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks so much for sharing your condo with us. We were ready for a reprieve from the cold MI weather, was a long hard winter. We really enjoyed the white sands and beautiful beaches. We enjoyed Maguires Irish Pub and shopping at Coastal Home and took home some great things. Hope we can return soon.

Nice Unit...BUT problems with Management

  • 3 of 5

This is a nice unit, very close to the walkway to the ocean. However I cannot recommend it because of this unit's management. Our stay started off well with a courteous email exchange and booking process. However when we arrived, only about 1/4 of the unit had power. We searched for a while to see what could be causing the problem. Finally, we called and the management company sent someone quickly to check out the problem. He was pleasant to deal with at first, but when I mentioned that I didn't want to move in a week's worth of our belongings to stay the night with our kids in the unit without power he said, "I rent units, I don't guarantee power. What do you want? A refund? Do you want to go home?"

He suspected, but wasn't sure, that the whole gulfside part of the complex was experiencing a power problem. It was my suggestion that he call the power company and ask if there was an outage and when it would be restored. He never could get the power company to answer the phone. So he left, unsure why we didn't have power or if it would come back on or not and he NEVER checked to see if we got power back on the entire stay. (Our original plan was to rent a hotel for the night so we would be able to stay somewhere with power. But thankfully my husband had the idea to go to Gulf Power online on his phone and put in the unit address and follow the status updates to see that there was indeed a power problem at Destin West and it should be restored by 9-10 pm. The renter should not have had to figure this out for's the LEAST the manager could have done for us!)

We mentioned upon booking that we would be departing a day early and the company asked us to let them know if we left early so that they could get a jump start on the cleaning for the next guests. I sent them a note right away after we left and no one ever replied to my email letting them know we'd left early or to see how I enjoyed my stay. The email request from VRBO to rate my stay was the extent of anyone's concern as to how my week went.

So the sad thing is that this is a nice unit and the master bed was comfortable. I liked the location, but I will rent from a different owner within Destin West next time.

The pools and lazy river were awesome.

  • 4 of 5

Being able to step right out to pool was very nice and so convenient with kids! Yet it still had the private feel to the patio. And the close proximity to the beach is very nice and made it so easy to go back and forth. Condo slightly dated but worth staying there for all the extras. Would stay again.

We had a good time but I thought condo was unimpressive for what we paid.

  • 3 of 5

Pretty as always st DWBBR but our condo had terrible mattresses, older comforter, just needed updating badly. Mattresses on bunk beds were awful. Very expensive unit for what we got. I had to change light bulb on patio, hardly any dish towels, not much storage for pantry items. We've stayed at property over 9 years and this was the most we paid and the least impressed we were. Seems like upkeep on property is different- less friendly, beach access used to be lit up, no children's activities this year, the "pool and beach policing " checking for bands, the beach area not being dozed every day. At the lazy river not having as many tubes...Very different experience. Going to look at other properties sadly for next year.

Owner's Response: Hi Melissa, Thank you for your recent review. We appreciate your feedback concerning the mattress situation and will advise the owners. They are very interested in making sure you have a wonderful time on your vacation. We were unaware of any issues with the mattress and the bunk mattress. Bunk beds are normally more suitable for children. Please note our "Welcome Letter" request that you call with any concerns or needs you may have while staying with us. We are always available to change a light bulb on a patio, or help in anyway. The pantry in the kitchen is fairly large, but, depending on the occasion, may have been small for your needs. The monitoring of pool bands is to ensure you have the comfort of the amenities exclusively for yourself. We are so sorry your experience during the peak season was not better for you and your family. Thanks again for your feedback, we do care about your experience.
