Because I have very high expectations I do not typically write reviews. Our stay at The Veranda in Gulf Shores delivered above expectations. The listing description was accurate, property was clean, well maintained and I found the owner to be honest and helpful. There were many wonderful features/amenities not mentioned in the description that were pleasant surprises. The quality of the furnishings, HD tv's in every family room and bedroom, excellent floor plan, roomy bathrooms in all 10 bedrooms, multiple fridges & ice makers on every floor and the professional craftsmanship that obviously went into the property. The best part of the property is the kitchen - Absolutely fabulous for the discriminating chef! The view from every porch is beautiful and the beach was warm and inviting. Our family reunion/vacation that included 25 people turned out wonderful - even better than expected. I highly recommend The Veranda for large groups.
Gulf Shores was a fun destination. We have excellent chefs in our family so each couple was "chef for a day". We dinned in for every meal! There are plenty of grocery options, shopping, golf and family activities close by. Gulf Shores was a great destination.
