Linda E. Hale purchased this condo in 2004
Gulf Shores has everything, emerald water in the Gulf of Mexico, wind surfers, gorgeous, romantic sunsets, long walks on the beach, shelling, sailing, dolphin cruises, multitude of water parks and other recreational parks, golf, tennis....the most relaxing yet exhilarating place in the world. I was looking for the calm and peace that the Ocean provides from Morning through the night when I retired in 2005. I know you love it too!
Building is equipped with outdoor infinity pool with easy entry for children and great lounge chairs for sunning while watching the kids or sitting beside the pool under the shade of the building. It also has an indoor infinity heated pool to wear those kids out at night. They will sleep like a 'baby'...and so will you. It is only 2 doors down from Bahama Bobs a favorite restaurant and within walking distance of several restaurants and gift/beach shops. There are 2 beverage stores across the street, one which serves pretty good pizza.

Thank you Linda we enjoyed your condo to the fullest. I know you are proud of the condo as well as you should be. Beautiful!!!!! 5 Stars
I have to start off that the condo is beautiful however, it was not what I thought I was renting. It was listed as having a hot tub and handicap friendly. Upon arrival we realized that the complex did not have a hot tub in the pool area and both pools were impossible for my mother (handicap due to knee problems, she can walk just has limited mobility). The first question I asked was if things were handicap accessible, we found out they were not. We took the vacation with my parents and our children as this may very well be the last vacation my parents are able to take due to health, my father had a stroke a few weeks ago. So disappointed that my parents did not get to fully enjoy the amenities that I thought would have been on the property.
We occupied this condo from mid-January to mid-March, 2014, and were pleased with all aspects of it. It is well furnished, exceeding what one would expect from a rental unit. The window treatments, balcony furniture, bed linens, and the entire unit is furnished first class.
Little nuances such as night lights and a water filter indicate the owner is interested in her tenants' comfort and convenience.
There was a fire in the building prior to our arrival and our timely occupancy was very dicey. However, the owner stayed in constant communication with us as to the occupancy status. Doing business with Linda is very easy.
We plan to stay there again in 2015. We obviously recommend this condo.

This is the best place to stay in Gulf Shores and I've stayed at many condos there. Linda is fantastic to work with. She's very accommodating and easy going. I couldn't have asked for a better stay. Many places to eat nearby. The beds were comfortable, water pressure in the shower perfect and everything you need to cook a fine meal was provided in the kitchen.
We had a great time this week at your place! We arrived early Sunday morning(2 a.m.) as my we had to wait on my daughter to get off work Saturday since they scheduled her and she couldn't get a sub so we were so tired we hardly looked at the place upon arrival but I opened the curtain in the MBR and what a gorgeous view we woke to! We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and the closeness of the beach! My husband loved the mattresses in the MBR and wanted to know what kind they are(really!!). He and my son absolutely loved how comfy the recliner chair was. If we'd had our truck, we would've had to leave some extra money!
I also loved how quickly you got back to my emails. I had all kinds of crazy questions and you graciously answered them all quickly. Loved doing business with you and hope to come back sometime!
We enjoyed our vacation as a family which might be hard to do from now on as my daughter will soon be going to marine boot camp!
About those who complained that the unit was dirty, not kid friendly and they shouldn't have to clean... It was very clean for us and all we were asked to do upon leaving was to wash the dishes and put them up which was easy to do.... As far as kid friendly, all the rooms have balconies so if your child is hyper or a climber, you might have to keep a closer eye on them but other than that, it is fine. Those are things YOU should ask when making reservations as a parent. My kids are all 17 and up so we did not check for playgrounds as the beach was their playground. ;)
My family had a really great time in this condo. It appears as stated and is well stocked. My problem was that the owner has unrealistic expectations of her renters. We did not clean the condo to her specifications upon leaving and she has charged us an exorbitant amount due to this. We did clean but did not realize we were supposed to leave the condo spotless because we paid a cleaning fee that was included in the rent. What is worse is the offensive and unprofessional manner in which Linda handled the situation. I recommend this building, Island Tower, but not this unit.
I actually don't remember the date of my stay. I was reading the review of someone who said the condo was not child friendly. I disagree TOTALLY! My husband & I stayed at this condo with my daughter and a cousin. Condo was VERY child friendly. They could sleep in the room with one bed or the room with twin beds. They had a balcony. They had their own bathroom. The girls really enjoyed the indoor pool as well as proximity to the beach. There was lots of activities in which two pre-teens could participate. I would most DEFINITELY stay again WITH CHILDREN!!!
