Updated and clean condo 4/10ths of a mile West of the main intersection on West Beach Blvd. This is one of the few remaining low density, family atmosphere complexes on the beach.
The condo overlooks the beautifully landscaped pool area with chairs, tables, and umbrellas for your comfort and relaxation.
The two bedrooms have a limited view of the Gulf and beautiful white sandy beach. The condo is just one stairway up from the covered parking where your car will be kept out of the hot sun.
The colorful bedrooms have a queen bed in one, and a double bed in the other, and both rooms have large closets.
The kitchen and dinette are well equipped, along with a TV and DVD player in the sitting area. The swimming pool and patio surface were renovated in 2007.
We as owners visit Ocean Reef twice a year to enjoy and keep our condo in pristine condition. We also enjoy the many restaurants and shops withing walking distance of Ocean Reef, in addition to the large outlet mall 8 miles North on Highway 59.
We spent a week here and enjoyed our time. The one flight of stairs was easy to maneuver and the grill and pool area was very close by. We missed not having a washer/dryer in the unit, but the guest laundry room was close by and convenient, just a little pricey....$2 to wash, $2 to dry, and $1 for detergent. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and pots & pans. The balcony was great and we enjoyed some lunches sitting outside. The beds were comfortable....would have been nice to have two twin beds in 2nd room, but we easily managed with what was there. The two parking spots were great and covered. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful family vacation!!!!!
Our last two days were not as enjoyable due to a large group of college students that came into other units, took over the pool area (with loud music, alcohol, and profanity) and partied until about 2 am making it difficult to sleep. I suppose those situations can be found in any condo complex during Spring Breaks though! Definitely not a reflection on this particular unit!
This was the perfect size and location for our family of four. The beach and pool are easily accessible, and the walk to the downtown restaurant area is quick. There is also a beachfront restaurant (Bahama Bob's), liquor store, waters sports, and an Island Outfitters steps away. Now that is convenient! We loved not waiting around for an elevator.
If you have kids, you MUST take them to the zoo! Since going there, we have been in enclosures with baby tigers and kangaroos, This trip we got the opportunity to hold 3 month old lemurs!
Helpful hint: bring lots of quarters for the washer and dryer. $2 to wash, $2 to dry.
Thanks for sharing your place!!
We really enjoyed our stay here. Very nice updated condo. Great price and great people to work with. Will definitely try to stay there again.
Just spent my 4th spring vacation in Gulf Shores and this place was one of the best place yet. If you are wanting to be within walking distance of the restaurants this is the place for you. Plus the beds were extra comfy!
My husband and I took our 3 year old granddaughter on her first beach trip and stayed in this condo!! I must say we were SO pleased when we arrived. The condo is in a great, family oriented, location and cute and clean as can be!! We loved every minute of it. The check in and out process was so easy and stress free. We will definitely be making this our new home away from home when we go to Gulf Shores. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us!!
Ocean Reef was great for me and my family to stay! The kitchen was well equipped for us to cook every night and was a simple walk to the beach. The only thing was that the television didn't work and the power went out at times so that wasn't fun. Overall, my family and I had a great time.
