Guestbook comments from the owner
There are too many wonderful things to say that it is impossible to list everything in this short space – but here goes. Location was perfect! Parking right out front. The staff was amazing and friendly – check in/check out was fast and simple. LOVED LOVED LOVED the private elevator – strong sense of security knowing that no one else was able to access our floor without the condo code. The condo was BEAUTIFUL! CLEAN! BIG! WELCOMING!! Beautifully decorated. Quiet. Well-stocked kitchen. Beds were ever so comfy. The balcony!!! …the balcony! AMAZING! Imagine your own private balcony overlooking the gulf that runs the entire width of the building!!! Would we rent this condo again??? You betcha – in a heartbeat. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

BEST LOCATION, BEST SPACE, BEST EQUIPPED

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a week with a variety of people including myself (at 5 months pregnant), my husband, our 21 month old daughter, recent college graduates, and couples in their late 20's. We have been down to Gulf Shores for 4 years running and this was by far the best place we have ever stayed. It was the most updated with modern appliances, decor, and furniture. It has the beach decor but it's not overdone and very tasteful. They had every single thing we could have asked for in terms of appliances and items to use (toaster, high end coffee maker, electronic can opener, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer in a laundry room/closet). The showers all had great water pressure and we never ran out of hot water which says a lot for a place when everyone is taking showers right at the same time after being at the beach all day. The access to this place was so private and so nice-- private elevator to get to the room and a code to punch to get in the door -- which meant not dealing with carrying keys to the beach and keeping track of them. There was a plethora of extras for us too-- extra bath towels, trash bags, dish soap, dish washing soap, kitchen towels, pillows, blankets, sheets, covers, dishes, pots and pans, silverware, seating for everyone in the living room, and even an entire hallway full of beach toys (volleyball, frisbee, buckets, shovels, rafts, umbrellas, boogie boards, you name it). The balcony was the biggest we have ever seen in Gulf Shores with a perfect view of the ocean and access via three sliding doors-- one of which was off of the master bedroom. The entire place has tile floors which make for easy clean up from the sand at the beach and there are all sorts of area rugs in the living spaces and floor mats in the bathrooms which were high end as well. We had more than enough space between the spacious bedrooms, the closet space and the cabinetry under the sinks for all of our luggage and toiletries and to spread out without feeling cramped at all. Our daughter was able to nap in the master bedroom without ever being disturbed by the other people we came with because the place is just that big. This condo is also within walking distance to the Hangout, Hooters, the Gulf Island Grill and so much else. We walked to a couple of those places for dinner and even at 5 months pregnant and with our daughter it was an easy walk to and from dinner.
The owners, John and Ruby, were so pleasant and easy to work with too!!

SIMPLY THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5
This was our family's second trip to Gulf Shores and we loved the condo! The first several days of our vacation were not beach days, so it was a blessing to have such an amazingly luxurious condo to relax in. It was so spacious, well decorated and perfectly stocked with everything we needed. The three sets of sliding doors overlooking the ocean let in an abundance of light and ocean air. Our three sons loved the amazing views from the large balcony and super comfortable sectional couch. Having three bathrooms and three bedrooms was also a wonderful thing for a family of five. The kitchen was the best equipped I've ever seen. Whenever we cooked, there were always all of the utensils and equipment needed. There were also lots of beach toys to keep the boys occupied. We were able to sneak away for a few "dates" to Sea-n-Suds, which is conveniently located just steps away from the condo. The gumbo, oysters, and peel and eat shrimp hit the spot after a relaxing day on the beach...and no need to drive. We also loved hitting up the Waffle House for breakfast across the street. The well equipped workout center came in handy after getting the guilties from all the great food we found close by:) We spent countless hours in the sauna, the outdoor hot tub and in the indoor/outdoor pool. Everything about this condo was wonderful. I can't think of anything that could have improved upon it. And I would be amiss if I didn't mention how thoughtful, friendly and helpful the owners of the condo were. They met and exceeded our expectations and we would go back to their condo in a heartbeat. Thank you!!

BEAUTIFUL AND SPACIOUS!

  • 5 of 5
What a fabulous condo! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Gulf Shores even though it was the coldest on record for the last 50 years. The condo was waterfront, top floor of the suites with well lit parking directly outside the private elevator. There is also a security gaurd patrolling for safety. Sea and Suds restaurants is right next door for quick, cheap, and tasty food. Definitely worth renting the loungers and umbrellas from Perido on the beach. Heated indoor/outdoor pool is nice and handy. The beach is beautiful and white sands. No seaweed.

The condo is fully furnished, spacious, with a fantastic kitchen complete with island and granite. Huge balcony overlooking the ocean as well. Beds are comfy. We all were so impressed with the condo and Theresa, the owner, was so pleasant and helpful. Thank you. The only recommendation I had would be better quality towels as they were below standard compared to the rest of the condo. We will stay again for sure!
