About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6

This great Gulf Shores rental features a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico. This two-bedroom, 2-bath Southern Sands vacation rental is only 1/4 mile from Highway 59, and is within walking distance of all the main activities in Gulf Shores. It has just been re-modeled and just opened for renters!!! This condo has a super low density with only 18 units. It's nicely decorated and includes a fully-equipped kitchen with all the modern appliances.There is a large living area with cable TV, and a VCR. Each floor has a free, heavy-duty washer and dryers. Relaxing is easy in the living room with its private balcony overlooking the Gulf and the swimming pool. Really need to come enjoy yourself here. We have only one rule: Relax, Relax, and Enjoy

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

No place like home does not apply here. This property was immaculate and made us feel at home. The kitchen is well equipped, the view is exceptional, the bed is comfortable and the unit is quiet.

Good restaurants are plentiful and close and there are activities and sightseeing opportunities for all interests.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your response. We love to hear feedback about the condo. We try and keep the condo in great shape and clean. We take pride in this. The condo is sitting right on the beach and has a great view. We are also located within walking distance of some great eating places! Our favorite thing to do on the beach is to enjoy the great seafood.

Very nice to take the grandchildren! This is just the size we needed and easier to manage

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location and the kitchen had everything we needed. Would like the bed upgraded to a king and sliding door to work better. The short elevator ride and laundry room was very handy.

Great place with a few minor issues

  • 4 of 5

Great location, great size, and exactly as pictured. My only issues were the sliding glass door was nearly impossible to open and shut and there was not enough toilet paper. A family of 4 needs more than 1 roll of toilet paper in each bathroom! Otherwise, we really enjoyed this little gem!

Small Balcony

  • 3 of 5

Although the room was furnished very nicely and had two bathrooms which worked out great, we didn't care for the small balcony or the view. We could only see a portion of the ocean because the balcony was so far back. Also the living room ac vent was a bit noisy. It made a loud rattling noise.

On a better note, the room was very clean and did have all the appliances we needed. I loved that it was in walking distance of everything and had an elevator which made it easier to hall things to the condo. Overall, I would definitely stay at the Southern Sands again, but in one of the front condos with the bigger balconies and a better view of the beach.

Thanks so much for the use of your condo. The weather and water were absolutely gorgeous!! ~The Waguespack Family~

Very comfortable stay in a spectacular location, right on Gulf Shores!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at this condo. It had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms which was perfect for the sleeping arrangements. The view from the deck was an amazing view of the beach, ocean, and the city. There was plenty of seating inside and out. The kitchen came in handy as well!

The owner was so helpful. We arrived in Gulf Shores a day early and were able to accommodate us & gave us an extra night. When we arrived our condo wasn't fully cleaned from the previous visitors and he was very sympathetic and understanding as well as quick to have someone there to clean it for us. I would be happy to stay here again!
