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.

I had a great time! Really hated to leave.

Southern Sands is a nice property, the only downfall was not having washer/dryer in unit. I really didn't like having to use my credit card to launder in a property laundry room.

Great location!!!!

  • 4 of 5

Cosmetically- needs some work. Wallpaper pealing, doors have wood peeling off, couch older, chairs are for looks but not relaxing.

Functionality- Amazing! Right on beach, overlooks the pool and beach. Super close walk and rentable and reasonable chairs and umbrella to rent. Super close to several restaurants, sites, and activities. The layout of condo is perfect. Windows in every room. Feels homey instead of sterile. Close to elevator and laundry. Luggage carts on main floor. Adequate parking. It also had 2 fans, extra linens, ironing board and iron, stocked kitchen with older utensils.

I would recommend this condo for its functionality. I can overlook the minor asthetics and somewhat outdated furnishings. Twin beds are not super comfy but adequate. Jetted tub does not work which is a bummer. Suppose to be TV's in every room but wasn't in the 2nd bedroom. It's has a VHS player ..........

With all that said, I still would rent again. Location, Location, Location!!!! So if you don't care about furnishing and outdated fixtures and pealing wallpaper and wood door cracked and chipping then this is the place for you!

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

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!
