*Dear guest, please note that there will be construction going on between 7 AM and 9 PM. There may be construction at the complex, as well as a new condominium being built on the property next door, which will continue through at least the end of the present year. Work is being performed daily using heavy machinery, so construction noise is significant and previously shown views from the balcony may be impacted. This is taking place immediately adjacent to Sugar Beach, approximately 10-15 yards from this rental.

Find somewhere else to stay. We booked this place. Seen all the roaches. Ended up having to sleep in the car. Worst vacation ever! The whole room was nasty.

Would have loved it more if it really looked like the photo. Didn't like the cheap bedspread and decorative pillows that looked like they were left over from the 1970s. The room itself had been gorgeously remodeled: lovely paint colors, modern countertops, brand new stove. But the building itself was a crumbling concrete bunker that made me feel like I was walking in jail cell corridors. There was no decoration in the corridors at all - just dull concrete. I got trapped in the elevator once; couldn't get the buttons to work at all. That was scary. One button was missing and had wires sticking out of it!!!! Back in the room, the appliance bulb in the refrigerator was burned out, and the microwave was perched on a shelf so high that I couldn't see into it and could hardly reach the buttons; always precarious to get anything out of it. Really ridiculous place for the microwave. There was no clock or radio in the room, but the worst omission was NO lamp on the nightstand. NO LAMP anywhere in the room!!! The lighting was miserable at night. Even though my light bulb complaints were responded to within 2 hours, I never did get a bedside lamp, which I had been promised. I would not stay here again, only because of the horrid, run-down concrete bunker building. You expect more when you're paying out this kind of money!
Manager response:

Perfect for two. Good location, easy access to all attractions, will stay again.
Helena D. Sep 2021
We enjoyed our stay at this condo that was clean but a few things I , as a rental properties owner in Gulfport MS, would add. There was only one night stand by the bed. Also I would add a small lamp on each night stand so guests are able to read. There are ants coming from behind the bathroom sink so regular pest control service is need.
Manager response:
Hello Helena, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We passed your comments along to our local manager to review and we appreciate guest’s preferences as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting your next stay!

It was great for 2 people. The view on the balcony was not what we were expecting and was disappointing so we didn’t spend any time out there. The pool area was wonderful! There were 3 big pools and 1 kiddie pool. I feel like the whole building needs to be updated to match the pool area and it would be amazing.
Coble E. Aug 2021
Facility is run down. Parking is not included in your payment for the room. You have to pay an extra $25 just to park at the facility you already payed to stay at. The room is clean, but the furniture is weathered. Our view was of a construction site, so there will be a condo permanently facing the room we stayed in.
Manager response:
Hello Coble, we apologize for the misunderstanding concerning the parking.We apologize for any confusion regarding the price of the reservation. The cost of all our homes are reflected directly on the listing and throughout the checkout process for transparency upon booking. Additionally, we have agents available 24/7 to assist with finding the best possible vacation rental for each guest's needs and budget.

It was really close to everything

Loved new paint and kitchen. Great tv.
Dawn T. May 2021
The condo was clean and comfortable. My husband and I spent 2 nights and enjoyed every minute. We've booked at Sugar Beach for years and the building could use a few updates, however, the access to the beach and the 4 pools are a plus for me! I would have loved to have had a few dishcloths and dish towels in the kitchen. I also had to Google how to turn on the shower head HA! I would stay here again!
JACOB E. May 2021
Clean room, all the amenities you need, easy check in/out. Highly recommend!
Sandra C. Apr 2021
Loved the beach and pools, Not a fan of construction next door, noise, and view was lousy, and place wasn't clean.
Manager response:
Hi Sandra, thank you for staying with us. We are sorry to hear that you had concerns with the construction and view. We provide photos, a virtual tour, a unit description, and a list of available amenities so that future guests know exactly what they will be seeing upon arrival. We have a warning that construction will be ongoing and our pricing also reflects this inconvenience. We will review the cleaning with our local housekeeping team. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future.

I loved the room and the price of it.
Jacob S. Aug 2020
The bathroom sink wouldn't drain and the bathroom wasn't cleaned completely. Apart from the routine maintenance issues, the condo was great. We enjoyed our stay!
Koby W. Jun 2020
It was nice to have access to beach front not too far from unit #179. The unit was cute, but was dirty. Our bed had lots of sand on it and inside the sheets upon arrival at the complex, and we had not been to the beach yet that day. The decorations on the walls have not been dusted in a very long time. There was someone’s hair on the floor of the bathroom, and there were a couple dirty dishes In the kitchen put away with the clean that we ended up having to wash thoroughly before using. The elevator had multiple issues during our stay, which especially made checking out and packing the car to leave more challenging. The beach itself was pretty and kept clean where the complex has access to it. We had a nice stay, but to charge us a cleaning fee and still give us a dirty room is not okay by any means.
Manager response:
Hi Koby, we are happy to hear you enjoyed the beach and location! We're so sorry for the disappointing experience during your visit. We will follow-up with our housekeeping team to ensure future cleans will be completed to our standard. We hope we have the chance to impress you in the future. Thank you
