Stayed here for a week 6 adults and a 6 month old the condo was great had a problem with washer that got took care of quickly,only issue with condo having everything you need is 2 trash bags is not enough for a week and it could use a curtain in the living room for guest on Sleeper sofa.Unfortunately when we stayed the upstairs neighbors were very loud between 2am and 7am stumping around.The parking is not that great had a white truck parked beside us the next morning came out to a dent and white paint on my brand new 2014 black Cherokee and believe the truck was parking to use beach because it didn't come back.I will defiantly stay here again for the price and location it was perfect and Kimberly Lang was great at responding to our issues!
We were supposed to stay two nights in this unit. We were traveling through the area and only stopping for the weekend on our way back home. The unit was so dirty and neglected that we actually took a family vote and even our four kids voted to leave! Unfortunately my husband and I needed sleep before we could drive any further so we were stuck there for the night. Thankfully we brought some cleaning supplies with us and managed to clean the bathrooms well enough to be functional. We sent a message to the company that owns this rental stating that we were leaving early. When we got home we sent them a detailed list of 33 items, WITH PHOTOS, of everything that was wrong with this unit. And I don't think we even managed to list everything. It has now been two weeks since we emailed the message and we have not heard from them. We at least expected them to say they would look into it, but they haven't responded.
Just a few of the things we emailed them:
Blankets were unwashed and contained fresh stains of blood on one and "bodily fluids" on another.
The floors were so dirty that when you step from the shower to the floor you leave muddy foot prints.
Toilet had not been cleaned and smelled so strongly of urine that you could smell it from the hallway.
We expected the unit to be small from the reviews, but it was so small that when one sleeper in the living room was open, you could barely scoot sideways around it to get to the other bedroom. (This is a serious problem when you have small kids in the other room! No to mention a safety hazard.) And there was no way you could have opened the other sleeper.
We will definitely not be back, and would never recommend this unit to anyone else. We stayed at another unit up the street from this one the previous weekend and it was spotless and well taken care of. Until someone starts taking care of this unit, it should not be rented. It was gross.
This property was perfect for my holiday. It is located in a small building on the Gulf side of Beach Boulevard; in other words, it is right on the beach. The unit is accessed by a staircase leading to the first floor.
On the inside, the unit is tastefully decorated, cozy,and very clean. Some of the furnishings, like the carpeting in the master, are a bit worn in places but still very nice. The unit was completely supplied with all of the items I needed for my stay: plenty of towels, blankets. The kitchen was also supplied with most everything one would need to make a simple meal, except the ingredients and the seasonings.
There is a small grocery within walking distance; within a 10 minute ride there are several larger grocery chains and many restaurants. Check out the Original Oyster House on 59. Also try Lartigue's Seafood Market for fresh boiled shrimp and other delectable seafood products.
Some of the things I did while I was there include a drive east toward Pensacola Beach, a ferry ride west to Dauphin Island and dinner at Felix's east of Mobile, and shopping at the Tanger Outlet center on 59 in Foley. I also tried to visit Alligator Alley, but it was closed for the season.
Overall, I would highly recommend this property. I would stay here again myself. Not only did the owner provide accurate details about the property, but she was also very helpful and accomodating. On the night I arrived, I had major problems finding the property. I contacted the call service and within 10 minutes Kim was on the phone with me giving me more detail to help me out. She provided me with her private cell phone number, just in case. That impressed me!
I left Gulf Shores relaxed and ready for a great new year thanks to Spyglass and Kim Lang!
The condo was very dirty and small. If we had all 6 of us came it would we crowded. Pictures are deceiving of how big it was. After several contacts to rental company we were able to get $100 back from the rental fee. We will not be back.
