LIFE SHINES on "Sugar Shack", a luxury condominium located in the charming beach town of Seagrove, where families have been making the pilgrimage to its soothing shores since the 1940s, and the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of those early pioneers still return to relax in some of the very same cinder-block cottages of their youth. Today, Seagrove Beach is a rewarding mix of old and new, from its eclectic laid-back beach retreats to its numerous restaurants. Seagrove Beach is located on historic 30A, which is a 20-mile scenic shore tucked quietly between Destin and Panama City Beach, Florida. Speckled with artsy villages, rare coastal dune lakes, upscale resorts, funky beach bars, world-class restaurants and 25,000 acres of protected habitats, Florida's Scenic Highway 30A is the birthplace of "New Urbanism" and is also home to the most beautiful beaches in the world. Seagrove Beach is just a short bike ride or walk to Seaside and a five minute ride to Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Grayton Beach and Watercolor Beach.
SUGAR SHACK: Sugar Shack is not a typical rental property, and is not meant for everyone. It is an amazingly large, 1,800 square foot, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom residence on the 4th (and top) floor of the Sugar Dunes complex, and is decorated with high end furnishings meant to be enjoyed and appreciated. It's not just a rental - it's a home away from home. Rather Sugar Shack is exquisitely decorated to appreciate the open layout and panoramic view of the ocean. Lounge in a grand room with twenty foot ceilings or take in the sights and sounds coming from the crystal clear water and sugar white sand from a 750 square foot covered, private deck. Walk down to the beach using a door and stairway which leads directly to the sand, or stay on the patio and enjoy the sunset with a cool glass of wine and fine cheese from one of the many nearby artisanal markets nearby.
DINING: Florida's Scenic Highway 30A is home to a wonderfully diverse variety of world-class restaurants, from AAA-rated fine dining establishments to deliciously casual seafood shacks. Boasting countless awards and honors, the Chefs of 30A are among some of the most talented culinary artists in the world. Some notable culinary must haves are: (i) V at Seagrove (Seagrove); (ii) Café Thirty-A (Seagrove); (iii) Bud & Alley's (Seaside): (iv) Red Bar (Grayton Beach); (v) Edwards (Rosemary Beach); (vi) Paradis (Rosemary Beach); and (vii) Havana (Rosemary Beach).
ADVENTURE: Rent a kayak and explore Deer Lake State Park and Eastern Lake, which are located on either side of Sugar Shack. Rent a bicycle and cruise to Seaside, Rosemary or Grayton Beaches along the 25 mile hike and bike trail located adjacent to Highway 30A. For the more adventuresome, charter a fishing guide and fish the bays for trout, redfish, and pompano, or go offshore and reel in marlin, snapper, cobia, sailfish, grouper, tuna and amberjack!
GETTING THERE & AWAY: Driving to Sugar Shack is easy from the east or west. From Destin or Panama City Beach, Highway 98 leads to Highway 30A. Once on Highway 30A, you're right around the corner! From the air, use the Panama City International Airport (ECP), which opened in 2010, has service from Southwest Airlines and Delta Airlines. Driving distance from the Panama City International Airport to Sugar Shack is just 20 minutes!
