Welcome to your piece of Sugar Beach! Just recently (Feb, 2014.. and now again in April 2018) finished renovations on our unit!
~1 mile from Live Bait, ~5 miles from FloraBama, and ~20 minutes from the Foley outlet mall. A new series of restaurants and shopping just went up a block away. And most importantly: its ON the beach!
This particular unit has new granite, paint, air conditioning unit (late 2013), the walls were all stripped and smoothed down, the king size bed is new as of 2014 (I was going to replace it this year in 2018, but it's still doing great), all of the furniture was removed and replaced with much more tasteful options. Wall mounted LCD's with blu ray players, and a high speed cable connection with wireless access. Dont laugh - you may get a sunburn and really appreciate having them around! Faucets are new, sinks are new, appliances are new stainless steel units. The unit is decorated with very tasteful and one of a kind professional art. The upstairs bedroom art was created by my wife (Art by Bailey), and the downstairs art is by Glenn Baja (owner of Glenn Baja photography), who's a regular renter of ours. This unit started as my baby, and has become an extension of home for several fantastic people I've had the pleasure of meeting along the way. It has stories and charm that few rental units will ever possess.
Sugar Beach is located across the street from the Gulf State Park, which gives us a 2-sided advantage. On the bay side, this unit is across the street from several biking trails (Rosemary Dunes Trail), and on the beach side, has significantly less people to worry about, as there's little development between us and the Gulf State Pier. You can enjoy the beach without stepping over 20 people to get to the water because of the location, chase sand crabs at night, and find shells by day with far less people to deal with.
Sugar Beach features 4 pools, 1 of which is heated during the cooler months. Our parking is underneath the units, so your car wont be 5000 degrees all day long. There is a near permanent state of people grilling out, the environment tends to be family oriented and friendly, and if you pan through the reviews of other units, everybody loves these for the bang for the buck value.
This unit looks amazing and offers updated amenities with a price that's hard to beat... and of course, it's on the BEACH!
NOTE ON SECURITY DEPOSIT: this is 100% refunded once my cleaning service verifies you havent destroyed or stolen anything. To date, I’ve never had to keep a penny of this - still true as of 2018. Just dont damage anything and this will be sent back the day you check out. Takes ~2-5 days to be at your door, generally. If you do damage something, it's in your best interest to be forthcoming and let us know. Accidents happen. I'd rather take care of it in a civil manner than one involving legalities and a lot of paperwork!
Note: In the past, I noticed somebody had flipped the futon, and it does NOT feel the same on both sides. It's not your normal futon padding. It's only meant to lay ONE way. If you sit on the futon and it feels like a torture device, please flip it over, and it'll feel like a mattress again. This was replaced late in 2017, and is basically new for 2018.
Note on leaving items behind: this happens. It's vacation, you're there to space out. But due to the high volume of items left behind, and the fact that somebody must take time out of their day to return them as well as the associated postal costs, there will be a NO LESS THAN $20 fee retained from the deposit in order to drop items off at a post office.
