About Ray and Teal Haven

Ray and Teal live in Ooltewah, TN, it is 2 miles from the Chattanooga city limits. We have lived in our home for 22 years and enjoy being close to the Chickamauga Lake. We have a wonderful cleaning/maintenance couple that live in Gulf Shores that are available for any needs our guests have.

Ray and Teal Haven purchased this condo in 2008

Why Ray and Teal Haven chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We have vacationed in most areas of Florida, South Carolina and Alabama. For many years we returned to the Keys, St.Augustine, Tampa, Destin, Panama City, ect. We started going to Gulf Shores about 8 years ago and fell in love with the area. We knew that this was the place we wanted to return to year after year.

What makes this condo unique

When we first entered this 10th floor condo, we fell in love with it. The balcony was probably the selling point. It was one of the largest balconies overlooking the Gulf that we have ever stayed in. We furnished it with Hampton Bay table and chairs, plus two chaise lounges. When we cooked in the kitchen, we still had a beautiful view of the ocean. The privacy of this condo is very unique. You are not surrounded by high rises and when you look to the left, nothing but State Park. The Security staff are always available to help our guests and closely monitor the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised to how close we were to the beach. Thank you so much for such a wonderful vacation. We will be back.

Best View

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here for 4 weeks. The condo is well equipped with all items needed. The oversized balcony was used daily for morning coffee and evening card games. The view was amazing, we often spotted dolphins swimming by. The beach was uncrowded and clean. We used the indoor pool and hot tub frequently. The location was convenient to shopping and restaurants. Numerous golf courses were near by. Owners Teal and Ray were easy to work with . We would definitely stay here again.

could not have chosen a better place to stay.

We had such a relaxing time on this property. The view of the gulf is amazing and the property is out on the end of the strip so it is nice and peaceful. It is still within minutes of all the local shopping and food places though. What an awsome place to stay. And the owners were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Thanks Ray and Teal!!

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family have stayed in many, many different condos in the Gulf Shores area and this one rated right near the top. Everything we needed was there along with a beautiful view from a very clean condo. Owners were easy to work with. We will rent from them again and recommend this condo to our family and friends.

The property was nice and very family friendly. Great view of the beach.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon. The property is right on the beach and not in a busy area. The room was nice with an amazing view off the balcony. My daughter loved having the option of an indoor pool when it was a bit cold. Ray and Teal were great to work with. Highly recommend!!
