The furniture in the living room is very worn...you might want to bring a coverlet/throw. The dryer was making very loud noise; however Sand n Sea sent someone out...they were going to fix it when the part came in. Other than that, this is an great property in a great location.- Rebecca A , Posted: 06/28/2020
If you’re looking for a home with high end construction features, you’ll be disappointed. The home is a “shack”, but has a great floor plan, clean towels and linens, a great view and easy access to the beach. It’s also far enough away from the public beach access so it’s less crowded. We had a couple of maintenance issues during our stay and the maintenance team was friendly and did a great job. The price is relevant. WiFi is very poor, so if you need to do important business, take your patience pills or forget about business during your stay and enjoy the beach and your guests.- Jim W from Montgomery , TX, Posted: 05/24/2020
We had used you before and had good results.- Glenda V , Posted: 03/10/2020
Star gazing and beach combing at Sugar Shack are superb! Comfortable and well appointed. View of the dunes and beach are the best.- Leslie S , Posted: 02/25/2020
Past experience with sand and sea was good and we wanted something beachfront- Nancy C , Posted: 02/18/2020
Great location!! Beds were very comfortable! Would like to see some better patio furniture but worked for our stay.- Steven N , Posted: 10/28/2019
Our family has stayed in one of your vacation rentals before and we had a good experience then, making it easy to look at Sand and Sea again. Our rental this time was spur of the moment. The Sugar Shack had a great floor plan for a small family and we took it right away. We looked at other smaller rentals, too. All were booked or not beach side.- Ann M , Posted: 10/15/2019
Great walking distance to the beach.Ideal layout for multigenerational family. Very comfortable temperature in the house. House could you some updating and then it would be ideal rental house.- Bryan H , Posted: 08/14/2019
We’ve stayed w Sand & Sea previously and enjoyed our experience.- Tamara S , Posted: 07/21/2019
great spot! clean house! great spot for deck watching pelicans - their daily flight path is up close...and most important is the direct path to the beach - thank you ! we've stayed before and its amazing how fast those palm trees are growing...love the wildlife that is seen 24/7 !!!- Carolyn C , Posted: 06/13/2019
A very nice home. Terrific views, very open and airy- Jackie G , Posted: 03/15/2019
This is the CUTEST rental! The location is great, and the house is really cozy. Everything was clean and comfy. The kitchen has pretty much everything I needed, and S&S prepares each room/bathroom with really nice amenities. The outside of the rental is about like all of the other properties in the area, but the inside was wonderful! Thank you for providing such a wonderful place for my foster dog and I for the week. I’ll be back!- Julia L , Posted: 02/24/2019
Cute little beach house with all the amenities. We had a lovely stay at the Sugar Shack!- Dixie F , Posted: 12/18/2018
It is a sweet property and very clean- James F , Posted: 11/26/2018
Couches are worn and bath tub for is very slippery. Barbecue pit was filthy. Path to the beach was not useable. Sand N Sea folks were professional and valued our patronage.- James R , Posted: 11/13/2018
Sugar Shack is terrific and everything we expected...the furnishings were clean and on a whole, it is spacious. We esp liked the open ceiling/rafter look which made the entire space airy, and bigger than it would appear. It has great open kitchen w sitting areas that are perfect for watching the gulf thru large windows during thunder storms. The deck is 'just right' bc the covered area works w a rainy day and the open part was ample for sitting in the sun...Overall an A++++! As always Sand n Sea never disappoints and has been a solid 'go to' for almost 6 years...and counting... :)- Carolyn C , Posted: 09/30/2018
We enjoyed our stay and the location was perfect for the beach, peace and quiet, fishing pier, Church, groceries and small eats! The Sugar Shack is a a little rough around the edges but very comfortable. Really nice kitchen and beds. We had to spend more time indoors or on the deck due to the rain than we usually do. Access to the beach was flooded but that is also contributed to the weather. Overall, we had a wonderful experience staying in the Sugar Shack.- Susan B , Posted: 09/19/2018
Perfect little beach getaway!
Sugar Shack is just great! We cooked all of our meals in the well equipped kitchen. Sitting on the deck listening to the surf and the wind blowing through the beautiful palm tree was amazing! What a wonderful find. Sand NSea is a wonderful management company. Our beach house was spotless when we walked in. Soft fluffy towels were provided. They are always available to answer questions. Overall great experience!! We are going back in October! Love that Sugar Shack...- Mechael C from Rio Vista, Posted: 09/06/2018
Sugar Shack is a great beach location. The master bedroom air conditioning needs some attention, along with the bathroom which has no air. It does get warm. However, we enjoyed our stay and plan on staying again next summer.- Vicki O , Posted: 07/28/2018
Our Property Services team is looking into the issue you encountered with the AC in the master & will address it with the homeowner. We can't wait to welcome you back next year!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/30/2018
This property had a great location and nice rooms. Just note that the sun room is connected to another bedroom so anyone staying in that room would have to walk through the other bedroom. Also the main room got pretty warm in the heat of the day even with the AC running. However the overall experience was amazing! Beautiful views! Short stroll to the beach!- Kelly B , Posted: 05/15/2018
Great Beach House!
Loved our stay at the Sugar Shack! Definitely recommend this beach front location. Everyone complains about the tree but I think it’s beautiful nature and provides protection for birds and butterflies from the rain.- Lyndsey H from NWArkansas, Posted: 03/21/2018
This property is a bit dated (furniture, walls), compared to other Sand N Sea homes we have visited, but they have updated the necessities: appliances, bathroom vanities.- Bobbi J , Posted: 03/19/2018
Right on the beach, which was very nice for taking walks this time of year. Heat worked fine. Kitchen was nice and had most everything. However, I agree with all the others who say to remove that palm tree, as it ruins the view from the decks. It is way down the island, past Galveston, so it's a 20+ minute ride to everything. That is both good and bad, lol.- Dale P , Posted: 12/30/2017
The Sugar Shack was very accomodating for the 7 of us. There was extra bed linens and plenty of towels for us. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. Quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed our stay very much! Would definitely stay there again!- Jason R , Posted: 09/18/2017
Sun room is very warm compared to rest of the house- Johnnie T , Posted: 06/10/2017
Perfect for a secluded get away with friends!!! We were very comfortable and enjoyed being just steps away from the beach!! There are a few touch ups that need to be made to make the house better but we had an amazing time!- Caroline D , Posted: 05/22/2017
The house is a nice house with a significant exception. In front of the deck, blocking about a third of the view to the Gulf is a large palm tree bush. It is overgrown and in completely the wrong place, since it is right beyond the rail of the deck, blocking about a third of the rail. Otherwise the house has been updated in kitchen and baths, it is clean, the deck is a nice combination of shade and sun areas. We would stay again if they removed the palm, I cant imagine any reason for it being there.- Susan B , Posted: 05/16/2017
Has a great view. Very clean and comfortable. It's far enough from town to enjoy the quiet.- JoAnn W , Posted: 04/25/2017
Service was excellent when called. Only thing missing in our rental was clothes hangars in the closet. Couldn't hang our clothes??- Carolyn N , Posted: 04/12/2017
We loved this property and it is great on size and location, but when we arrived the AC was not working in the Master Bedroom & it doesn't have AC in the Master Bathroom or the laundry room. The Sand N Sea team worked very hard our first night to get the AC up and running. Your contractor and my husband both worked on the system and finally got it working again. Thankfully there was a cold front and the Master Bathroom wasn't too hot. If this house had Central AC in all of the rooms we would certainly book it again, but during the summer months this home will be way too hot.- Vicki N , Posted: 03/31/2017
Sugar Shack's layout is one of the best! The sleeping porch is a little sanctuary for reading in the daytime and sleeping with the windows open at night to hear the ocean's sweet songs. The open living, kitchen, dining is mod, comfy, and invites a sit down and communal cooking and snacking! I spent a lot of time on the covered deck watching the weather, birds and waves. Sea Isle is a long time favorite neighborhood for me... a little farther from the action of the seawall and strand, but closer to San Luis Pass's dunes, where the birds outnumber the people! Sugar Shack was one of my favorite Sand n Sea rentals. Really a special beach cabin with spaces that invited me to relax, recharge and be happy!- Leslie S from Houston, Posted: 01/20/2017
What a great house!! What a great location!! The staff at Sand 'N Sea are just amazing!!! They went above and beyond for sure. I will ONLY rent from them in the future, and if we are able to purchase our own beach house...These ladies will be the only ones I will trust. Just outstanding!!!! Thank you all so so much!- Audrey from Dallas, TX, Posted: 10/12/2016
Owner has numerous A/C units throughout. Home stays cool even during the hot summer.- Cheryl from HOUSTON, Posted: 06/14/2016
