VACATION 2016

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us. It fit all of our needs and was super convenient to everything from the beach to shopping to restaurants! The community pool was amazing. Like being at a resort pool.

The Master was the perfect get away from all of the chaos of all that was going on each day. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was a delight to work in.

This property was even pet friendly which made us really happy!!

Our stay was delightful!

This home exceeded out expectations! The location is great, it is a very short walk from the beach. We didn't even bother to call the shuttle. The community was awesome and most importantly it was extremely clean, BEAUTIFUL HOME! We will definitely return next summer!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words about our home. We're happy to hear you enjoyed it. Glad to hear the walk to the beach was not too long--that's a question that many people ask and it's difficult for us to answer because what's a short walk for some might seem a long walk to others. We look forward to hosting you and your group again in the future. Thanks for Jeff & Christine and the entire Sugar Palm Rentals staff.

Michigan Family Reunion 2015

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our wonderful vacation. The pictures do not do it justice. It is a beautiful home in a beautiful neighborhood. The pool is beautiful and big. The beds we amazing and the décor was beautiful. We had everything that we needed and more. It was easy to walk to the beach for our daily morning walks. It was also centrally located form groceries, shops, movie theater, restaurants and much much more. Christine was amazing to work with. I will stay again in the Starfish Shack. It was a very family oriented rental.

Starfish Shack

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful home in a fantastic location. We lived in this home for almost a month while we were in-between residences and it was instantly comfortable. It had everything we needed; a BBQ grill, first floor laundry, linens, wifi, fully outfitted kitchen, etc and it was easy to get to restaurants and shopping. It's an easy 5-8 minute walk from the south entrance of the community to the beach.
