About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

You'll love the unobstructed side view of the Gulf from the private balcony of our home away from home! Closest one to beach with unobstructed side view. Although close to beach and pools, our balcony and unit are quiet... away from the noise of the pools and Sugar Shack on the beach front. For years, families have been returning time and again to Sugar Beach Condominiums. Many extras are packed into this charming efficiency/studio unit, which has a combined living/sleeping area with a full kitchen separated by a breakfast bar.

The complex has four pools: 2 full-sized pools (one heated), a kiddie pool, and a centrally located interior pool. Public beachside restrooms are available. There are three gazebos in the pool area. The Sugar Shack snack/drink bar has a variety of drinks and light fare available (seasonal). The first floor sundeck is open and lounge chairs and umbrellas are available for rental on the beach. A tennis court and shuffleboard area are available. There's a barbeque grilling area with 3 grills and picnic tables.

Sugar Beach Condo Association does not allow pets to accompany guests. The Association allows one vehicle for each studio/efficiency or 1 bedroom unit. The Association requires registration passes which are available from the security guard on-site for $20. You can not park at the complex without a pass. A guard is on duty at the parking entrance.

A security deposit is required. If no damage or loss is incurred, and if the reservation is not canceled, unless it is re-rented for the same period, this deposit will be refunded in full within 14 days of departure. In addition to rental fees, a one-time cleaning fee of $60.00 and an 11% lodging tax is collected. The security deposit, rental payment, lodging tax, and cleaning fee are due prior to arrival. All payments are to be made by echeck, credit or debit cards.

12 weeks notice - all deposit refunded

10-11 weeks - 75% deposit refunded, 25% kept

About Jerry and Rebecca Knoff

We are 55+ empty nestors who love to travel and dine-out, preferably with close friends! We have always loved the ocean, and were married 33+ years ago at sunrise on the beautiful gulf coast beaches.

Jerry and Rebecca Knoff purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jerry and Rebecca Knoff chose Alabama

More family oriented beach area than Florida panhandle destinations. Lower property tax base in AL than FL. Lower real estate prices in AL than FL.

What makes this condo unique

Loads of good seafood in the area! Great fishing, either from the pier or through charter boats. Beautiful white sand beach!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time! I forgot to write in your book but the condo was just as expected. We liked being close to the stairs and a short walk to the beach. The weather was perfect and wished we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back!

Hard to go wrong at the Gulf! Pretty much what we expected. Two negatives though. Other than payment correspondence, zero communication. We were on the phone in route trying to figure out check in procedure, etc. VRBO had to help us with the number to contact in order to get the needed information which was finally text to us but only after we called. Cleanliness of the unit was an issue. I was forced to sweep toe nail clippings off the balcony. GROSS!!! Wore our shoes the rest of the time in the unit. Probably wouldn't stay there again given all the availability of other condos.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! We've passed on your concerns to our housekeeper, although we generally hear that the unit is quite clean and well stocked. Regarding the lack of communication, it's our understanding that once a booking is paid in full, our access instructions and other useful info we've place on the VRBO website become visible to our guests. So sorry this didn't apparently happen with you! We'll discuss this with VRBO to determine what steps we need to take to ensure future guests don't encounter this issue. We do hope you'll return! We'd love another opportunity to impress you!

Small beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect size to accommodate a couple looking for a beach getaway. The complex was also vert nice always clean and organized. Lots of nice beach, and stores near by with plenty of options for food. A nice close walk to the beach was perfect. Complex had a beautiful balcony over looking the ocean perfect for just sitting with a book or cold drink to relax.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This being our first time to Orange Beach, we werent sure what to expect. As soon as we arrived to the condo, all stress melted away. The condo is prefectly furnished and perfect size for 2. All we had to do was relax. The condo is right by the stairway and only 1 flight down to step on the sand. We only used the elevator for load and unload. I love the size of the complex. It makes it more like an actual beach vacation as opposed to your average resort overload. We would love to stay her again.

It was ON the beach!!!

  • 4 of 5

I'm a single mom. I never thought in a million years that this could have happened. Far enough away from the noise. Quiet, laid back. Room had everything that I could have possibly wanted and some. Thank you very much!

Grat stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay!!

We loved the location.

Great spot for the short week we stayed.

Close to the beach, pools great for cooling off after a long day at the beach.

We eat on the beach everyday.

Go across the street and buy the local seafood, they cook it for you!!

Room was clean and had everything we needed.

We will be coming back soon!

Thank you to the owners for staying on top of the local operations.

Communicated well with us before and during our stay.
