Just the right size!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Sugar Shack. Great place to relax, walk the dogs, and run. We had a great few days here. Can't wait to come back!

Inside was great!!! Outside has a lot to be desired.

  • 3 of 5

This is a honest rating of the Sugar Shack, the inside was very clean. We were surprised how clean it was. Bed slept good, air conditioning was good, tv was good. Couldn't believe there weren't more bugs because the windows and vents not the greatest. Didn't leak 👍� It rained like crazy on us for two days. No laundry facility, and the outside was in poor shape. Missing part of the skirt going around the bottom, any rodent, snake, animal could make home there. Grass and bushes not kept well - the picture was very misleading. Grill not good, bicycle's forget it your not going to ride them. Lawn needs a makeover and better up keep. Like I said definitely not for children, we chose because it was pet friendly. There are no, I mean zero pet friendly beaches in Alabama, don't believe what you read on the internet. They have done away with pet friendly beaches in the area. We were disappointed in that, but realize that is not Sugar Shack's fault. Thankful that our Pet was allowed!! Didn't have any problems while there. If you don't mind being off the beaten path and it's just the two of you and you're looking for a place to sleep - it's right up your alley. Gave it three stars for good beds and being clean inside was probably being generous. We would not stay there again.

Cute and comfortable place in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We came with the whole family of four. It was easy to find, clean, comfortable, and we had a lovely time.


*In a nice quiet neighborhood but still not too far from all the things we wanted to see and do.

*Clean, comfortable beds. Great sheets!

*Nicely appointed kitchen with full-sized stove and oven

*Publix grocery just minutes away

*Air conditioning works great (a tall order in such a hot place!)


*No washer/dryer. I know this is clear in the listing (and why I still give five stars) but after a day at the beach, it would have been so nice to have even a small tumble dryer to dry the towels. The humid weather there doesn't allow towels to dry when you hang them out.

*No beach towels or other beach items for guest use. We flew into Pensacola and didn't have room to pack big beach towels, umbrella, or other things. We bought some things at Publix. Again, this doesn't detract from our rating of the place because I cannot imagine how many things might go missing but beach towels and an umbrella would have been nice-to-haves.

Overall, we LOVED the Sugar Shack and would definitely come back again next time we travel to the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area. We had a wonderful vacation there and for the price, you really can't go wrong staying here.

Sugar Hill, GA

Cute and colorful

  • 4 of 5

The Sugar Shack is clean and nicely decorated with colorful coastal furniture and accessories. We had plenty of towels and hot water and the beds were comfortable. You need to be realistic in your expectations. The cottage is really a well maintained older mobile home with an addition. It uses window air conditioner units, which can be a little loud and the kitchen is extremely small. It is a great price and in a pleasant walk-able neighborhood and they will accept your small pet. Over all a good experience.
