GREAT GULF FRONT 2/2! THE BEACH IS CALLING!

Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 King Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Crystal Shores West is a premier new building that has many amenities including an indoor/outdoor pool, hot tub, exercise room, sauna, pool tables & foosball, BBQ grills, covered parking, and staffed lobby. All this and a convenience store walking across the street.

It is perfectly located only 1 mile from the Hangout and Hwy. 59. I can provide additional pictures of the building and its amenities, if you would like.

Do not confuse 'Crystal Shores West' with the older building called 'Crystal Shores'.... or with the Crystal Tower (which is located accross the street from the beach).

When you compare other units in Crystal Shores West please note that mine has custom drapes, upgraded stainless appliances and flooring, tray ceilings in the kitchen and bathroom, crown molding, new neutral area rug, and a fun beachy theme. It is 1,100 square feet of comfort! There are 4 floors of covered parking beneath, and best of all located on the 4th floor, giving quick access to put you right onto the beach, yet high enough for fantastic views.

You will be so pleased with the comfy atmosphere that greets you. I like to update everything so it looks and feels new and fresh! Bed Bath and Beyond is a favorite of mine! The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need if you want to cook. There is a new crock pot, hand mixer, nice matching china and glasses and wine glasses. Nice matching everyday plates and silverware. Full sets of pans, pots and bowls. Stainless cuisinart coffee maker and toaster. We made sure it is all high end ready for your every whim! We spent the month of November '13 at the condo putting in new tile floors in both bedrooms, re-decorating and new shower heads in both bathrooms. We also managed lots of great beach time, boating and golf! It was so hard to leave, as always!

The view is breathtaking, and is visable from the living room, dining area, kitchen and master bedroom!! Just step onto the balcony and look for miles up and down the beautiful white beaches and turquoise blue waters. The guest bedroom has a view of the lagoon on the north side of the building.

Our new condo is a comfortable retreat. The furnishings include a new cozy couch and lounger, area rug, fun art work, sleek dining room table and chairs, 55 inch flat screen in the livingroom, plasma TVs in the master AND guest bedroom, and custom draperies. Both bedrooms have king beds, each with upgraded bedding that not only looks great but feels great too. Each have a high quality mattress that gives you the great sleep we all want when on vacation.

It is one of the few units with stainless steel appliances (refrigerator has in the door ice/water), and upgraded flooring (beautiful tile throughout!) and window darkening curtains.

We made sure to provide the little niceties we look for when travelling; a well equipped kitchen, beach towels and toys, beach chairs and an umbrella, cleaners, card table and chairs, etc. (all to make packing easier and save you time and money)

It has a great location on the 4th floor, so there is quick and easy access to the beach, pools, and game room.

This complex has a full time management company and security, located on the premises. They are friendly and helpful. And the presence of the security guards is very reassuring whenever we're on vacation!

If you would like to see additional pictures just let me know and I will e-mail them to you.

About Peg

I enjoyed helping people during my 27 years as a certified financial planner. After retiring 2 years ago, I found myself missing my relationships with my clients. I decided I wanted to fulfill a lifelong dream of buying a condo on the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores and go back to work. I've been regularly coming to Gulf Shores over the past 20+ years, as my sister lives in Mobile. I purchased my beautiful 'Home Away from Home' and started my business of condo rentals. I've been able to put my years of serving the public to good use in yet a different way. My guests have been wonderful, and I strive to help them by providing a very cost efficient way to stay in luxury accommodations. Since I've spent so much time in the area, I am able to provide many tips that only the locals know about. Call me, and let me know how I can assist you in making this stay in my 'home away from home' your best vacation experience ever.

Peg purchased this condo in 2012

Why Peg chose Gulf Shores

I looked diligently for over a year, spending hours and hours with my realtor, until he finally found exactly what I was looking for. The location is perfect, the beaches are gorgeous, I needed to be able to see the Gulf from the kitchen sink, large spacious rooms, crown moldings with no popcorn ceilings, a knock out view from the huge balcony and top notch ammenities. I drove him crazy, but in the end, it's perfect!!! I LOVE my condo and know you will too!

What makes this condo unique

It is perfectly located just one mile from the fun activities of the intersection at Highway 59. But if you want to bypass this area you can take the shortcut directly to further north on Hwy. 59. I particularly love that this is one of the newest and nicest buildings on the Alabama coast. It has wonderful amenities, not the least of which is the fabulous staff that is present all day to assist you with any needs. I also like how quickly I can be on the beach with my lower level unit. It is a wonderful, plush “home away from home” that is available at very competitive prices.

Great Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5
This was our family's first trip to Gulf Shores - it won't be our last! The condo was really nice and extremely comfortable. We chose this unit because of it's location on the 4th floor (really the 8th because of the convenient 4 levels of covered parking). It is a perfect height to see everything on the beach and the dolphin activity in the ocean (my wife is afraid of heights but she loved this unit). The owner, Peg, was so easy to work with. We had been warned by friends to be careful working directly with an owner and not a management company. Rest assured, you won't have any issues with this owner! She sincerely wants your stay to be one of great memories with no regards to stress over your accommodations - and she delivers!! Can't wait to come back.

Royal Reds

  • 5 of 5
This condo was rented by two couples and we found the location to be ideal. The unit was very comfortable and was decorated very well. The owner suggested we try some Royal Reds and we did that on several occasions. The balcony is wider than the pictures believed it to be and we used that for our Happy Hour every night. We would return to this unit if coming back to Gulf Shores.

PERFECT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful and comfortable condo! We loved the color scheme and décor. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. I'm pretty sure the master bed mattress was more comfortable than mine at home! Had we wanted to cook, the kitchen was fully stocked. So relaxing sitting on the balcony watching the dolphins. Peg was super easy to deal with and we received our damage deposit refund promptly. So glad we found this condo. We will definitely return and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Relaxed and Refreshed

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year in a row that me and my family have stayed here. The room was super clean, and the view from the balcony was great. We were able to stay through the Fourth of July, and the City of Gulf Shores put on a terrific fireworks show. Working with the owner Peg was a breeze, and the pics on the website are exactly what you get.

Excellent condo

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful condo ! Beautifully decorated,clean and kitchen is complete with anything you might need . I was very impressed with my stay. My son loved the pool tables and catching crabs on the beach! The pool was great. This is my first rental from owner and it was so much easier being able to go straight to your condo after a long drive. And Peg was wonderful to work with.I would highly recommend this condo.

Gulf Shores Novices

  • 4 of 5
You couldn't ask for a better location on the beach or comfortable accommodations in this 2-bedroom, 2-bath condo. We saw dolphins nearly every day from the large patio deck. We enjoyed eating at a variety of restaurants and taking in many activities that the owner recommended. The people working at and staying in the condo were helpful and friendly, even the spring breakers were polite and mostly quiet after 10. The cool weather this year and the sound of the elevator just outside our door were the only drawbacks. However, 60s and 70s and a little noise instead of below zero were good.
