Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

People call and ask, how close we are to the beach. Well...if you were to jump off the balcony (which I would not recommend), you would be right on it!

This is a terrific location and a super building in GS.

Crystal Shores is a thoughtfully well-built, 14-story building, directly on the beach overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. It is two years young! Loaded with many state-of-the-art amenities for guests, it is simply one of the best buildings on less-trafficed west beach in Gulf Shores for either a couple or small family to share memories of a perfect vacation.

The onsite fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment directly overlooks the Gulf of Mexico The Indoor-outdoor pool and spa also is built to afford sweeping views of the gulf while you are soaking! This building has it all and also boasts an incredibly convienient location close to all the shopping and parks! Hit the 'G' elevator button, and in one minute, your toes are blissfully in the fluffy white sand!

This CORNER unit is located higher in the building and offers views of both the Gulf of Mexico and the Little Lagoon from the wrap-around huge balcony and from every window in the place! It is professionally decorated with very comfortable and new beach decor. The unit sleeps six incredibly comfortably and a one or two more with ingenuity. YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHEN YOU SEE A CORNER UNIT VS. AN INTERIOR ONE THAT THE VIEW, SUN and EXTRA SPACE THAT A SEPARATE LAUNDRY ROOM PROVIDES MAKES THE SLIGHT EXTRA COST WELL WORTH IT.

We have high speed wifi for your computer and tons of other creature comforts. The kitchen is fully loaded and ready to experience your culinary prowess!

The two bedrooms both have King-Size beds with Premium mattresses (I insisted since I have a bad back)... and the couch in the living room has a premium Sealy mattress in the pull out queen-size sleeper. The master bedroom boasts a view of the Gulf of Mexico. It is a heavenly sight upon awakening each morning! Dolphins are a common sighting, too! The second bedroom offers a lovely view of the Little Lagoon.

Our goal in furnishing our condo was comfort for our family, when we visit our second home-away-from-home. The linens are top quality, and the balcony furniture offers high-end comfort with great chaise lounges for reading books! It is loaded with tons of books, games, puzzles, videos, and DVD's to entertain young and old.

You can watch the videos or DVD's in either of the bedrooms or living room on one of the three televisions. It is hard to watch TV though, while you're sitting on the couch, when the views of the Gulf of Mexico and Little Lagoon are vying for your attention!

High-end appointments in this unit include granite counter tops, tile floors and carpeting in the bedrooms, refrigerators with ice makers and filtered water and an incredibly well-stocked cooks kitchen - because I like to cook! There are also grill facilities on site in season.

It is best to enjoy the corner view at dusk while watching the sunset as you eat at the balcony height outdoor table overlooking both the Gulf of Mexico and the Little Lagoon, and the chef doesn't feel bad cooking because you can see the Gulf the whole time!

About Owner/Property Manager

We bought this property when it was built in 2004 and when I walked on the balcony with my hard hat on, I started jumping up and down. It is such a view and such a great condo. I put my heart into the decor our place and it's so comfortable, I know you will feel it in each and every room. From the stripes in the bathroom to the other items we have throughout that make you realize this truly is a second home...ours and we'd love to have you enjoy it as we have over the years. It looks and lives brand new!

Owner/Property Manager purchased this condo in 2004

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Gulf Shores

Not too big with too many units, and yet has all the amenities of larger behemoth properties. I don't want to be crowded on the beach! This stretch is a little wider, too.

What makes this condo unique

Corner balcony overlooks Gulf of Mexico AND little lagoon. Balcony height bar stools are crucial for seeing over the railings and getting pure views of the gulf. Grilling area (charcoal) on site as well as beach chairs set up for you each day with umbrella (front row!) and beach towels in our condo.

Crystal shores + Dana = an awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have stayed at many places in gulf shores over the years - most have been very good experiences.......until this year when we were fortunate enough to find and stay at this fabulous "home." That is what this amazing unit felt like - a place to call home- and the view and amenities were outstanding and an unexpected treasure. The "chairs" on the beach reserved for us were awesome and readily used daily. In a terrible moment - once we arrived - we realized we had forgotten my grandson's beach bucket with toys - which was going to lead to a quick trip to purchase one - but viola!!!!!!- we opened a closet to find an array of beach items and chairs - and yep!!!! A beach bucket with toys!!!!! The unparalleled views, the thoughtful amenities, and reserved beach chairs make this "home" a must stay for any family! Lastly, over the months leading up to our vacation- I had many questions regarding our trip and every time I "pestered" Miss Dana about something - she was always quick to respond, positive and informative, and generally made me feel as if our vacation was important to,her. There is no price value on this type of communication- and I greatly appreciated it!!!!

Is it too early to reserve the same week next year- we have found our vacation treasure!

Thanks again for letting us use your home!

A Wonderful Beachfront Condo!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family just finished up our first week ever in Dana's condo. We had a blast! My favorite thing about the condo was the HUGE wrap-around balcony that had amazing views of the ocean and both directions down the beach, plus a beautiful view of the inland waterway across the street. I happen top be the cook in the family so I was also very pleased with how the kitchen was set up and stocked (Pots, Pans, and everything in between). Last but certainly not least were the beds. My two kids (8 & 11) and my wife were all happy with how comfortable the beds were in the condo. It was hard to get them up and to the beach each day! We certainly will be back again!

Owner's Response: Hi Todd, Thank you so much for taking time this weekend to write this review. They mean the world to me. We really work during the summer to make sure our home away from home is stocked with what you need and what you don't know you need! Again, thank you for this. We have owned this condo since the building was built and I am constantly working to keep it current and keep things in good shape and replacing things along the way. :) Dana

Fabuloso!!

  • 5 of 5
Once again our family had a fabulous time staying at this condo.
You cannot beat the views throughout the entire condo. The balcony is breathtaking. You can see the sun and parasailing and dolphins during the day and the moon and stars and the glowing pier at night.
We eat lunch on the balcony every day and walk up the beach to dinner almost every evening except when dining at Lu Lu’s.
Dana is a fabulous property owner who always gets back to you quickly with any questions you may have and she is GREAT to work worth. We have stayed at several different properties over the years for our yearly, Gulf Shores, family, vacation and we will always return to this one.
You cannot beat all those windows on the inside, the mile long views of the beach from the balcony, and the gorgeous view of the body of water and all the cute houses in front of the condo. There is water water everywhere!!
I am a VERY picky person and you are having any hesitations at all, rest assured. You will be MORE than satisfied.
This family from St. Louis will be back again next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. We love this condo and am glad we are able to share with other folks who love it as much as we do. This year, we added the high end beach service to our rental. It is about $20 per day to rent these chairs and they come gratis (2+umbrella) with our condo. Thanks again! Dana

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband, myself, our oldest daughter, her husband and our 2 year old grandson spent six wonderful days here, The condo is beautiful and welcoming, a very comfortable space to be in, Our favorite spot was the corner balcony where we spent hours just relaxing and gazing out at the view, We also spent a lot of time on the beach and our grandsons favorite place was the pool area. We all agreed that we want to come back. We have vacationed in the Gulf Shores area almost every summer and this was our favorite place.
Dana was wonderful to work with and gave us a lot of good information that made planning our time there easier,
