*Cleaning Information - We have certain comprehensive cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing measures that are taken between each booking which means our housekeeping crew needs plenty of time between check-in and check-out. Our check-in time is 5:00pm CST which allows a full 7 hours between guests. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, as we know you are anxious to begin your vacation. However, please bear with us as we do want to make sure our house is as clean and safe for you and your family as possible.
**Weather Information - Unless there is a mandatory evacuation order issued for our area, we do not allow last minute cancellations or rescheduling due to inclement weather (this includes, but is not limited to, rain, high wind, tropical storms and hurricanes).

About the owner: I (Michelle) am an attorney and my husband Jon is an assistant high school principal & athletic director. We currently live near Columbus, Ohio and have three young boys who think the pool at our house is the best thing ever!
Why this property? Our family has been coming to this area for years and decided it would be great to have a house here that we could use and share with others who enjoy the area as much as we do. This particular property has an enormous backyard which is great for kids and is within walking distance to the beach. The local area is very family-friendly with lots of activities to enjoy and the beaches are some of the most beautiful we've ever seen (and we've seen A LOT)!
Guestbook comments from the host:
We decided at the last minute to take a trip to Miramar Beach to enjoy a home with a pool that was within walking distance to the beach. We hit the jackpot in finding this home. First, the owners were very responsive to any questions I had prior to arrival (and during our stay) and provided me with all the codes necessary to enter the gated subdivision and the home. Upon entering the home, we found it to be beautifully decorated in a subdued beach theme and extremely clean. The colors they used, were soothing and just worked so well together. The bedrooms were all a good size and the kids enjoyed having the bunk room to themselves. The kitchen had everything we needed and more: plenty of glassware, plasticware, dishes, cooking equipment. We spent the majority of our time outside in the pool. It was such a nice perk to have a gorgeous pool and grounds with palm trees in the backyard. We used the gas grill every night to cook dinner. I would highly recommend this home to friends and family and hope to return to it in the near future. A tip for future guests: we had groceries delivered to the home on the evening of our arrival, there is also a dollar general store a few minutes walk away that has many grocery items. I didn't realize how well stocked this store would be.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the little attached pool a hot tub?
The little pool is not a hot tub or jacuzzi. It is a "cocktail" or "kiddie" pool, is about 3ft deep and has a seating ledge.
What kind of grill do you have?
It is a gas grill and propane is provided.
How far away is the beach?
The beach is about 500 yards away, or an 8-9 minute walk.
Do you provide beach chairs?
We have 6-7 beach chairs in varying heights available for your use.
When might I need to get pool heat?
We would recommend pool heat for stays during the fall and spring. The outside low temperature must be above 45 degrees to use the pool heater, so there may be times when we cannot heat the pool in the winter.
Is the pool salt water or chlorine?
Our pool is salt water. It still uses some chlorine, but is much less harsh on the skin than a full chlorine pool.
Is there golf cart or vehicle parking at your beach access gate?
There is no parking at our beach access gate. You can drop people off at the gate and take the vehicle back to the house or you can drive down a half mile to the public beach access which does have parking (but is super crowded in the summer).
Perfect home close to beach!
The house was more than perfect, more beds than we needed for our family of 3 but we loved the large kitchen and backyard. The garage is stocked with everything you need for a beach day! The owners are so sweet and after telling them the beach wagon was loosing a wheel, they had another one delivered to the house just in time! We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach and even walk down to Pompano Joes and Kenny D's for food & drinks. We definitely took advantage of having a Dollar General right around the corner to get supplies for the house. This house is perfect for small families or large, the layout makes the house so spacious. The backyard has a nice yard area to play lawn games as well along with plenty of seating. Highly recommend! Hope to go back soon!!

Brittany thanks so much for the wonderful review! We are so happy you loved the house and enjoyed your vacation!
The perfect home away from home!
I cannot say enough good things about our stay at Sugar Isle. It was beautifully decorated and equipped with everything my family needed for our week stay. We cooked a lot throughout our vacation, so it was nice that the kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, pots, pans, and appliances. It even had appropriate table wear for our young daughter. We had a little hiccup with the cable box, and Michelle was quick to ensure the problem was resolved quickly. Aside from the beauty of the home, you simply cannot beat the private pool and the short walk to the beach! We were thankful for the wagon and sand toys, and our daughter enjoyed all of the pool toys and floats that the house provided. It is obvious that this is a family home that is cared for, as they seem to have thought of every little detail. If you choose Sugar Isle, you will be so happy that you did!

We had wonderful stay at this house. It was the perfect place to get away during these uncertain times. The owners were very responsive with any questions we had. Having our own spacious pool in the backyard was awesome. The house was equipped with EVERYTHING we needed for our stay. The kids loved the bunkroom with their own TV and the beds were very comfortable. The house was beautifully decorated, spacious, and very clean. The beach and a few outdoor restaurants are within close walking distance. We had a wonderful stay and cannot wait to come back!

a ‘MUST STAY’ in Miramar!!
It’s hard to figure out where to even begin in describing our stay. From the moment you walk in the door, Sugar Isle commands a feeling of awe inspiring relaxation. The open, clean, beachy feel hits you as soon as soon as you walk in with beautifully decorated spacious rooms, comfortable family and living rooms and a huge master suite! I loved how the new kitchen opened up into the large family room making it great to interact while cooking dinner.I am a business traveler and avid vacationer so I have stayed in more rentals than I can count over the years and this was by far the cleanest place I have ever stayed in. I tried hard to find something that could have been better or cleaner but I could not. This is no exaggeration as I am very compulsive about cleaning and sanitizing places before I even start unpacking.This home literally has everything you need to make your stay as carefree as possible. From a fully furnished kitchen (even with real stemware if you fancy a glass of wine) to a new washer and dryer, to beach chairs and umbrellas to a beautiful new crib if you have a little one. There’s even a clothes basket in each bedroom closet. There is literally no detail left unturned- they have thought of everything!The pool! Step right out of the back door onto the enormous pool area complete with tons of sitting space for great eating or gameplaying, comfortable lounge chairs, plenty of umbrellas for shade and something you don’t find very often… A backyard which was great for when we played games or or juggled the soccer ball. I love how private the backyard is with the tall white privacy fence- it makes you feel like you’re in a world of your own.The beach! Within a five minute walk, you’re on your own sugary white sand beach with private access. I found this to be an absolute must and a Huge selling point for me. Our private section of the beach was not overcrowded, which made it great to spread out and relax without worry.I truly can’t say enough about our fantastic stay- we will definitely be back!

I am so glad we found this place. It was breathtakingly decorated with a serene beach theme. The rooms were spacious and I melted into my bed. The beach was a short trip by foot. We were thankful to have our own pool oasis. It was the perfect place to just relax with each other. I can’t wait to go back!

The perfect family vacation home
This vacation rental home was perfect for two families to share and have a wonderful time! The house was spacious, beautifully decorated and no one fought over the bedrooms, since they all had very comfortable, king beds. And the kids loved the extra- large bunks bed! Everyone enjoyed the backyard with pool, hot tub and plenty of outdoor seating and the short walk to beach or restaurants was so convenient! I highly recommend this rental home!
