About the property


SUGAR SAND DREAM WAS NEW TO THE RENTAL MARKET IN JULY 2015 and the reviews are in!!! Our reviews are all five star!

We love 100% of our guests and 100% of our guests LOVE SUGAR SAND DREAM AND OUR SERVICE!! Sweet home Orange Beach Alabama with it's sugar sand beaches is a joy to share with you!

Guests have given top scores to our amenities, interior design, 75' patio, views, host, cleanliness, beach, stocked kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, and living/dining room, toys and games for children, books for adults!! We support and welcome our military guests!

In November 2015, after only having rented Sugar Sand Dream for 3 months, we were selected by an international travel site for a photo shoot!!!!!

We're beyond thrilled. The photographers and producers flew out from San Francisco, CA and South FL on December 19, 2015 and honored us with a photo shoot!!! They'll be using pictures of THIS CONDO for their website and marketing materials!!! What an honor!!!

That was such a wonderful thing but we want you to know that our eye is always on our guests and:


This condo is AMAZING! THIS COVETED CORNER UNIT GIVES YOU SPECTACULAR VIEWS, and it beautifully and comfortably sleeps 10! Watch your favorite football team or movie on our new 55" SMART TV! SNOWBIRDS WELCOME! Call for special rates!

Floor to ceiling sliding glass doors in every room & a 75 foot patio overlooking the beach! AMAZING VIEWS, all new décor, freshly painted, and sparkling clean! Sugar Sand Dream is Heaven on a Bun!

We installed a new 55" Smart TV for football season. Non-football fans: HGTV and all your favorite channels are included, too! We've supplied lots of DVDs but feel free to bring your favorite DVDs because there's a flat screen TV in every bedroom and every TV has a DVD player, too!

Sugar Sand Dream is my "dream come true"...and I want to share it with you! As a lifelong hostess to friends and their families, my hope is that your dreams of staying at a beautiful, safe, comfortable BEACHFRONT home will be your amazing beach-getaway-come-true.

With a casual, yet beautifully decorated, kick-your-shoes-off-and-relax vibe, Sugar Sand Dream has been completely designed with you in mind. After trips to beach condos over the years, my hope is that you'll see the care taken to create exactly what YOU want in this beautiful space! I have tried to think of everything to make your time here really special.

Safety, cleanliness, and fun are HUGE to me as I'm sure they are to you, as a guest. The condo is in a gated community with security on the grounds and parking directly on the property. Your front "yard" is the beach and a huge double swimming pool. You'll see that it's easy to relax and have fun here!

For active guests, the condo property has an indoor pool, an outdoor "double pool", a gym, grills, a children's playground, and tennis courts for your use. There are miles of Sugar Sand beaches outside the condo for running, walking, and people who like to shell.

Every inch of the condo has been deep cleaned, freshly painted, and appointed with new furniture or newly acquired furniture that has been custom painted specifically for your enjoyment.

You'll be greeted with new art/furniture/pillows/blankets and comforters selected specifically for your comfort and enjoyment!

Throughout Sugar Sand Dream, you'll be surrounded with uplifting, beautiful, and fun art... some of it has been crafted and up cycled by your hostess and all of it has been inspired by the beach. The art and blown glass is intertwined with natural beach elements: driftwood, sea glass, and shells...a nod to the amazing view of the beach and water from every room!

The kitchen has been stocked to the brim with all new silverware, dishes, and china with an ocean wave pattern. Accounted for: all kitchen gadgets, machines, cookware, and pretty much anything (even lots of spices) you'll need to prepare and serve meals for 10!

You're within a mile of three grocery stores so purchasing your favorite items will be easy-breezy. Don't like to cook? Me, neither. Tons of nearby restaurants (both local and national chains) are here to serve you.

You may choose to do laundry in the full-size washer and dryer centrally located next to the kitchen and near the "Blue Waters" twin bunk/trundle with a full size bed, the "Coral Reef" queen bedroom, the living room with a custom made, upgraded queen size sofa (extra thick and cushy), and the "Spa Beach Retreat" master bedroom which has a king sized bed.

While the condo is beautiful, you'll want to enjoy the whole space by relaxing on one of the gliders on the HUGE patio, eating a meal at the turquoise and white bar table overlooking the beach, reading a book with your beverage close by on one of the white bead board snack tables or just taking in the view.

Several wonderful additions to the patio for guest enjoyment: this past spring, two white Polywood Adirondack rockers, one turquoise 6-top Polywood Adirondack bar/dinner table and chair combination and a two seater turquoise Polywood Adirondack sunrise viewing table and chair combo added for early risers who want to view the amazing morning sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico!

When headed to the sugar sand beach outside your sliding glass door, you can use the beach chairs and new beach towels provided (please return them when you're done so the next guest will enjoy them) or you may choose to rent a beach chair and umbrella from the attendant on the beach.

The double-circle outdoor pool is another good choice for relaxation, with ample seating space for all in your party. There's a gazebo with seating at the pool for those who prefer the shade.

Nearby, you'll find a multitude of fun places for children and families to play and enjoy: hang gliding, boating, skim boarding, water and golf parks, dancing, shopping, an outlet mall, favorite national "big box" stores, local shops, and fishing gear stores. You can do as much or as little as you like.

Book your visit with Sugar Sand Dream and let your dream vacation come true! I'd love to help you have your best vacation, EVER!

About Shari Youngman

As a child, I visited my Great-Grandmother at a "rooming house" in Bradley Beach, NJ. I remember being on the boardwalk in Atlantic City when the only people with tattoos were sailors! :-)

I find the fun in just about anything, have a curious mind~am an artist~an athlete~a community volunteer~a traveler and lover of animals and the great outdoors. I value my connections with others and have friendships spanning decades and some, a lifetime.

It has been my lifelong dream to own a beach home and to host guests. First, I thought I'd own a Bed and Breakfast. Then I remembered that I really don't like to cook.

I have traveled extensively for pleasure and work and understand what it's like to feel valued. I want each guest in my home to feel like every room is giving them a hug.

Atlanta, GA is home, having moved here immediately upon my graduation from the University of Delaware in 1981. My graduate degree is in Counseling Psychology from Georgia State University and I was a Psychotherapist and a Sales Training Manager during my "formal" career.

I became quite ill in 2008 and went from having a job I loved to being in and out of the hospital and undergoing many surgeries. Regular 9 to 5 work has been an impossibility for me since then. I went from earning a good living to scraping by on Social Security. My health challenges can be incredibly difficult but I'm (almost!) always optimistic!

My faith in G-d has never faltered and my friendships and connections with others remain the best part of my life. I have been blessed with an amazing circle of friends.

My joy is the beach, the condo, and our guests.

I look forward to booking your best vacation EVER and

welcoming you back for upcoming visits!

Your Sugar Sand Dreamer,


Shari Youngman purchased this condo in 2015

Why Shari Youngman chose Orange Beach

Because it's my absolute dream come true. I looked for 10 years and the night I saw Sugar Sand Dream for sale, I said "that's the one!" That weekend, the offer went in and my dream came true. It's everything I worked my whole life for.

What makes this condo unique

Stunning beachfront corner condo with FLOOR TO CEILING sliding glass doors in every room. You can literally see the Gulf of Mexico in front of you from every vantage point. It's spectacular. You can hear the sounds of the waves, see beautiful birds, touch the spun sugar's Heaven on a Bun! If I do say so myself, the interior design is breathtaking! :-)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Owner's Response: It was a joy having you and your family as guests in my home. You, your wife, and children were so appreciative, and respectful of Sugar Sand Dream and were a pleasure to work with! Every contact that we had was so positive and I can't wait to have you back again as guests; whether for a baseball tournament or any other fun family stay. I'd welcome you back with open arms any time of year!!

Such an AMAZING view and BEAUTIFUL place!!

  • 5 of 5

Shari is the absolute sweetest! I have never had such great communication with an owner. The property is beautiful, the beds are soooo comfortable, and it is very well decorated! If you love the sound and sights of the waves like we do, I could not imagine better views than this. All windows/sliding doors in this condo have views of the beach/ocean! The outdoor/indoor heated pool, hot tub were beautiful. Thank you again for such a great vacation home:-)

Wonderful family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Sugar Sand Dream. The condo was clean and beautifully decorated. The corner spot makes for a large patio with various views of the beach. The stairs are right out the door and gave us a little extra exercise, which we all liked. (The elevator isn’t far and was equally convenient, we just liked having the stairs.) The beach access was just right in terms of distance and was easy to go to and from with or without beach gear. This condo is the best stocked in the kitchen that we’ve ever experienced and we very much appreciated that. Once we bought our food, we had everything we needed to prepare our meals. We hope to return in the near future to this perfect spot!

Great February Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The Summer House, building A, is a wonderful place to vacation in Orange Beach. So many extra reasons that I can't begin to list them all. The buildings are centrally located on Perdido Blvd. close to everything you'll want to see or do. Fully protected by fire alarms, smoke detectors, and sprinkler systems as well as on site security. We felt completely safe and comfortable. Our most recent stay was in a unit called "Sugar Sand Dream" which is owned by a wonderful lady/ decorator that has created a charming space for guests to enjoy. Wonderful furniture, TVs, fully stocked kitchen and enough seating on the balcony for a nice party (17 seats).

Great corner unit giving views to the south and east . Breathtaking sun rise views daily.

The Summer House is known for lots of social activities among the residents and we found that to be definitely true. BYOB get togethers, sporting opportunities, bus trips, card games, and many more opportunities.

If you're looking for a great place from which to enjoy Orange Beach and be right on the terrific white sand beach this is the place.

I'm so happy that you loved your time in my home and took advantage of all the fun things to do in and around Orange Beach! Your Sugar Sand Dreamer, Shari
