DANA'S 2/2 PERFECT WESTERN SUNSET CORNER ~ HUGE CORNER BALCONY ~ FILLING FAST!

Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

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!

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

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.

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.

Wonderful vacation

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,

Relaxing Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 13, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
We had a GREAT beach vacation! This condo met all of our expectations and then some. The location directly on the beach was great. The beach is kept clear of seaweed and we found a small collection of shells to bring home with us. The condo was clean, bright and had all the comforts of home. The views from the condo were just beautiful and our daughter picked the pullout sofa in the living room so she could wake up every morning and see the ocean. We loved that the condo was stocked with beach chairs, beach towels, sand toys,skim boards etc. We did no real cooking but the kitchen was well stocked with all that you would need to cook up a great meal, even spices! The beds were comfortable and the condo was very spacious. We would love to go back and have told many people about the great place to stay in Gulf Shores. The condo is located close to many great restaurants(our favorite was the Sassy Bass in Fort Morgan),shopping, golf, zip line, paddle boarding, kayaking and parasailing. The pool,hot tub and fitness areas were nice. We enjoyed looking for crabs on the beach at night. The boardwalk has a shower are so you can wash off the sand. The owner was very efficient and quickly responded to questions, would definitely rent from her again. Our best beach vacation yet, Thanks for a great place to make family memories.

Owner's Response: Thank you Mark and Julie!
This condo is what started it all for us to move to Alabama.
I love this balcony so much, and have been known even to fall asleep on the lounger on the balcony for the night... :) Dana

Dream boat condo!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 9, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
Four of us stayed here for a week in May. This place is absolutely beautiful and close to shops/restaurants. Also, Dana is freaking awesome to work with. Will definitely come back. My only complaint is that the condo is on the 10th floor with gorgeous wrap around views. Turns out I'm a huge weenie and am afraid of heights. So my only complaint has nothing to do with the condo, just my own internal wussiness.

Owner's Response: Buh-lock-kay! Thank you for this response and 10 floors isn't so high up. If you stayed in our vrbo 172336 (on the 24th floor) you'd have to arrive with anti anxiety medication! Dana

Wonderful Getaway with Daughter

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 5, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
My daughter and I, along with another mom and daughter stayed here as a last minute celebration of college graduation. The condo was perfect - clean, bright and cheery. I loved being on the end unit - we had run home to change clothes one evening in order to head out to try and find a place to watch the sunset. We realized then that the patio wrapped around and we had the best view there was going to be right there! Grab the wine, cheese and crackers - and we were watching the sunset from our patio!
It is also right on the beach, and we reserved the chairs and umbrellas to be in place every day. The location was amazing - across the street was a small general store, and we could walk along the beach each day to several bars for an afternoon cocktail and dinner. It was 2 days before we got back into the car again. I will definitely want to come back again soon!!

Owner's Response: Hi Sandy, Thank you for your kind review of our condo. I work hard to make sure it is very comfortable for everyone who is there trying to think of what you may need and what makes a stay a little more comfortable. Thank you for taking the time to post this.
Thanks again. Dana
