Family wedding trip

  • 4 of 5
Our family planned a wedding at this location and the wedding and reception turned out great. This unit worked great with the beach at our back door. Access and parking were the best. These units are older than most on the beach, but comfortable and had great access to restaurants, shopping and entertainment. The unit was clean, but could use a few cosmetic fixes. Our one and only complaint as 50 plus year olds is all the stairs. Stairs to get in and out of the unit and stairs to get to any of the bedrooms. Our legs were burning within 24 hours of our stay. Other than this we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Home Away From Home !!!!

  • 5 of 5
After staying here the past 3 summers, sometimes more than once a year, I can't imagine booking any other property.
Upon arrival of the last stay, there was a noticeable difference in the carpets and upholstery. They had obviously been professionally cleaned. The entire home was bright and fresh.
Considering it is strictly a rental unit, everything needed is provided. Granted, the cleaning service supplies all linens; bed, bath and kitchen. If you run low or need to refresh, a washer/dryer is available.
Bring your toiletries and groceries and you're set !!!
From the time I leave I'm planning the next trip and can't wait to come back "home" !!!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I arrived on a Friday to stay for 5 nice in the rental. this was our first time in gulf shores, and I would for sure go back and stay in this townhouse again! we had a slight issue with scheduling when we first got there, but Justin was great and took care of the issue right away and we were able to start enjoying our vacation! the townhouse is nice, very roomy, and we did not have any issues with the place being dirty or any tacks on the stairs (and I have 3 small daughters). the proximity to the beach is amazing, and I loved that there is a key pad on the door so we didn't have to worry about keeping track of the key.

I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone looking to stay in gulf shores. I have zero complaints!

Roomier that expected

  • 3 of 5
We stayed at Ocean Reef 703 from June 16 - 21, 2014.
The condo was a little larger than expected and was "surface" clean upon arrival.
The carpets are old and dirty and should be replaced. The mattresses are very soft - so if you're like us and prefer a firm mattress, be prepared for that.
The problem that another guest had reported about the carpet tack on the stairs has NOT been resolved.... 4 of the children we had with us all cut their heals! So bring along some peroxide and some liquid bandaid!

Ocean Reef is an older property but is pretty well maintained. The pool is located with a cluster of condo's around it and it's just about 25 yards from the front door of the condo.
There are only about 8 units that are beachfront the rest seem to have a parking lot or pool view. That being said.... this property is NOT luxury in fact I think 3 star is an accurate rating.
The condo it self has been updated, although the updates were pretty cheaply done. It's obviously used strictly as a rental so I doubt that anything else would be necessary.
We brought along extra cookware and tried to use paper plates and cups.
There are not enough towels either in the kitchen or bathrooms so you might want to bring some along or run to Walmart like I did and buy some.
The sheets on the bed are terrible! They sure aren't cotton but more like nylon and do NOT stay on the mattresses! (There are 2 queen beds and 2 double beds so you might want to bring those along too)
The beach was nice enough and not very busy. The unit is walking distance to the Hang Out and there is a stand that sells banana boat rides, rents jet skis and parasailing about 150 yards down the beach which was convenient.

The back porch is large but be prepared, it's shared with the townhouse that is next door. So if you get rowdy neighbors that drink until the wee hours of the night, like we had next door, it's not very nice.... Also the wooden decks both in the front and the back of the townhouse need to be replaced. There are numerous rotten boards as well as abundant opportunities to get a splinters... so bring along some tweezers!

Also it was fine for us but if you have an issue with stairs this is NOT the property for you!

The information I provided was to help anyone that might want to stay here in the future as well and let the owners know that they need to fix the nails on the stairs.

Great location and very accommodating

  • 4 of 5
We just went for spring break with 7 teenage girls and three moms. The unit was actually a little larger and nicer than we originally thought. It is very convenient location to everything and walking distance to the Hangout and major intersection. We loved the fact that we could walk right off the back porch onto the beach! The only real complaint is that the complex did not have a hot tub and with two of our days being cold, the girls were really disappointed they didn't have that to turn to. Otherwise, it is a great unit and I would definitely recommend it.
