Clean, quiet and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Sugar Shack. The cottage was exactly how we expected it according to the description. It was VERY clean. We rented bikes for our stay which ended up being a great decision- there are bike lanes the entire length of the scenic beach road, which we rode every morning and evening. We shopped at a couple of the shopping centers, my favorite was the SanDestin outlets. The cottage is a little too far from the beach to walk, we drove (it took about 5 minutes) every day and it was not a problem. We were blessed with beautiful weather and had a great time. We will definitely stay here again. Great place for the money.

Good for the price

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed two nights here for a quick, weekend get-away. The cottage is located conveniently to Emerald Coast Parkway and lots of restaurants. It wasn't as close to the beach as we thought, so plan on driving to park at the public beach if you plan on bringing anything to the beach with you. There is a place close by where you can rent a golf cart or bike that would probably be nice too if you don't want to drive. The cottage had a musty smell, and we had to wash all of our clothes when we got home because they all smelled funky. The bed was hard and not the most comfortable for sleeping. The cottage is quaint and nicely decorated. They provide coffee pot and filters, microwave, toaster oven, fridge and freezer, all you need for a short stay.

If you just need a place for two people who want to spend most of their time out at the beach and just need an air-conditioned place to sleep at night, this place will do the trick.

Awesome Beach Bungalow

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Miramar Cottages. The cottages and property were very clean and well kept. It was really nice to stay within walking distance to the beach and to not have to stay in a hotel-type situation. I would recommend this place and will hopefully stay here again!

July 4th Weekend

  • 2 of 5

Overall a very nice property. You have your own little space. With that said, the "walk to the beach" is a bit of a stretch when anyone considers the items one brings to the beach. Ice chests, chairs, etc would make it impossible to walk to the beach for a day in the sun. Driving to the beach is a must, and we didn't even have any kids! The unit was very clean and looked brand new, however there were a few issues. 1) Make sure you realize that there is no stove and no real oven. 2) We attempted to use the grills around the property for cooking, but they were quite messy and dirty from previous occupants. We tried to get these fixed but the Owner just told us to use another one. This would have been OK, except that all of the grills were dirty and no tools existed to clean them. So much for a BBQ on the 4th! 3) The units on the North end of the unit are next to the communal dumpster. This was not explained in the unit description and the breeze helped push these odors right into us as we were 10 feet from the dumpster. After mentioning to the Owner, we were offered air spray. Not sure how many bottles of Febreze it would have taken, so we opted to forego sitting on the sun-soaked porch for sitting inside to escape the smell.

Overall, it was a nice place for a good price, but you wont get any help if you have an issue with anything. The Owner is unconcerned with fixing anything and will give you a nice explanation as to how you can just do something else besides use the unit that you are paying to rent.

Owner's Response: Our cottage community is located 3 blocks to the public beach access and most of guests find the walk enjoyable. If walking is not your forte then bikes and golf carts are available for rental right next door. Of course you can also choose to drive since the public beach access offers free parking. We urge our guests to read the property description carefully as it states the cottage is a "limited cooking kitchen" and is only equipped with a countertop toaster oven and microwave for cooking purposes. For those that want to cook we do offer our 2 bedroom cottages which do have a full kitchen. We offer gas grills outside and they are to be shared throughout the community with the other 10 cottages. They get used quite frequently during our busy season and we ask that all our guests please be respectful and burn off any excess food from the grills so the next guest does not need to clean up their mess! We offer an onsite dumpster for all guests to use and it is serviced 2 times a week. As the Owner I strive to ensure the cottages are clean inside and the outdoor amenities are well maintained. We respond immediately to every guest and address their issues as quickly as possible to find a resolution. Please note that during holidays many companies are closed and getting a resolution is not always within our control. We appreciate our guests understanding of these facts and having the confidence in us that we are working diligently to ensure that they enjoy their vacation.
