BEACHFRONT! FLOOR TO CEILING SLIDING GLASS DOORS EVERYWHERE!
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
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 sand...it's Heaven on a Bun! If I do say so myself, the interior design is breathtaking! :-)
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Fabulous, charming get-away
Charming, condo that was perfect for our crew of 6, 4 of which were teens. Great balcony view to watch them at the beach or pool. Decor was precious and added to a relaxing atmosphere. Shari is WONDERFUL and helpful.

Do not hesitate book this place for your next vacation!! Super cute place, unbeatable views, and great location. Shari will do everything to make your stay 5 star!!
Amazing family vacation experience!!!
My family was just blessed to spend 5 days at Sugar Sand Dream! The condo was probably the best beach home away from home we have experienced, and we are beach lovers! The location was right in the middle and only minutes away from everything we chose to do at Gulf Shores. The view was breathtaking. We spotted dolphins from our amazing wrap around balcony! The beach is only steps away!!! Shari Youngman, the owner, was truly the most accommodating and gracious host we have ever rented from! She truly wants each guest to have a wonderful experience, and she does so much to make that happen. If I could give this experience more than 5 stars, I would! I highly recommend this beach home! We plan to visit again if at all possible!!!
Due to the sickness and death of my husband from ALS last year this was the first vacation my family and I have taken in 4 years. Naturally we had been looking forward to going to the beach. Our stay at Sugar Sand Dream lived up to and surpassed our expectations. The condo was the nicest and cleanest I have ever stayed in. The decor was perfect for the beach and was tastefully done. There was nothing that anyone could need that was not provided. Shari Youngblood, the homes owner felt like an old friend. Never have I had a rental property where the owner gave me her personal number and told me to call her if I needed anything. She did everything she could to make sure our stay was enjoyable and it was. I would recommend this vacation property to anyone and will definitely be coming back again.
Great Beach Spot/Condo!
