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.

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!!

Awesome View

  • 4 of 5

A very comfortable place to spend two winter months. The view of the Gulf, the sunrises and sunsets from the extra wide balcony were awesome. If you stay at Royal Palms in the winter, bring a cover-up for your bathing suit. The short walk from the elevator to the indoor heated pool and hot tub can be cold, especially when you are wet. The keyless entry is handy; no fumbling for keys. Well supplied with cooking utensils, but who wants to cook with so many great restaurants. Kitty's Café for Sunday brunch is a hidden gem.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

This condo was one of the nicest that we have stayed in while at Gulf Shores. It was clean and had everything we needed. The view was amazing. We watched dolphins play in the ocean daily. We will definitely be back. Teal was great to work with before and after our trip. The only con was the plastic mattress covers on the beds. They were loud when you rolled over at night.
