Great summer stay & bang for your buck
My wife, daughter and I stayed here for 4 days in mid July. This unit was really nice with newer soft, clean carpet, a well stocked kitchen, and amazing views from the balcony. The two main things we were looking for before booking our stay was a place with great views, and a place to escape the Florida heat (averaging a heat index of 105 degrees daily lately!). So this unit and property accomplished both of those things for us. The pool area was really nice as well, and I liked how there was two shallow sections of the pool that were somewhat divided which allowed for privacy while swimming. There were some negative aspects that I feel I should address. The bed in the master bedroom is a little rough and by far the squeakiest bed frame we have ever slept on. The kitchen is very dated, but all the appliances worked well (there was ice in the freezer upon arrival which I thought was a nice touch). Renters are not allowed to park at the actual condo itself (those spaces are reserved for the owners) and have to park about 1/5 of mile down the hill and be shuttled back up to the condo by the security. This was only a minor inconvenience since the shuttle is free and runs 24/7. There is no air conditioning in the unit, which I originally thought was because it was broken. However, it turns out that the entire building is without AC due to the fact there is very little need for one. During our July stay, the average afternoon temperature was 77 degrees and nightly was about 64 degrees, so unless you enjoy chilly naps during the afternoons, it shouldn't be an issue for you. Finally, I need to mention the internet. The resort internet is unsecured (safe?), and very slow. In addition to this, they put some kind of "third world" type block on streaming, which makes it impossible to watch Hulu, Netflix, HBO GO, Youtube, etc. I found this to be a bit ridiculous, and is the main reason why I can't give this place 5 stars. Overall, Sugar mountain is gorgeous and we had a really good stay. This is a very good option, especially in the summer when the rates are low.
