We had a wonderful stay at your condo. The weather was perfect, the beach was very nice and not too crowed. The indoor pool was great for our 3 boys who weren't done swimming even though they needed a break from the sun. The condo was great and the location is just far enough away to make it quite and private but close enough to make a quick trip to all of the restuarants and shops. We will recommend your place to our family and friends.

Spent the month of Feb. Condo was as advertised and Russ and Janet couldn't have been nicer to work with. Though the area is out several miles from the city, it is just perfect for peace and quiet. The complex indoor pool

was just great. We would definitely recommend this condo highly!!

The room was great. Quite, quaint, a close distance to a clean calm beach. Pools were great, AC worked, and the price was good. There was not a crowd at the beach nor was there a party atmosphere. White sand, clear water, and super sunsets.

Terribly disappointed

  • 1 of 5

We were disappointed in quite a few things. First, I had asked how close things were and I was assured that we were 10 minutes or so away from the main Gulf Shores area but near lots of restaurants etc... Totally not true. If you are going to cook all meals in the room and never go shopping or to events this place could work. Secondly, the TV did not work all week. We called the first morning. We were told they were working on it. Since it rained quite a bit and we were so far from town or places we had some irate 10 year olds to entertain without TV. Lastly, there was no information about the fact if you are coming from LA (New Orleans etc...) that you need to be at the draw bridge BEFORE 6:00 or else you would have to drive clear out of the way up over and down. Overall, the price was reasonable but when you consider what you did not get it was not.

Owner's Response: First, let me say I am sorry you had a bad week. I am puzzled however, that you took almost a year to post your review. In the 11 years we have owned the condo this is the first review that was anything but a 5 STAR. I retreived our back ande forth emails - which there were 12 between Feb. 5th and March 15th. On Feb. 10th you wrote: " Can you give me an idea about the restaurants and the shopping in the area, including how far away. On Feb. 11th I wrote: The Plantation is out on the peninsula. It is 12-15 minutes back to Hwy 59 - which is the main drag. The outlet mall is in Foley which is about another 10 north up 59." At no time during our correspondence did I tell you it was "only 10" minutes. There are 4 restaurants within a mile of the resort and one of those you can walk to. As far as the television goes, i am sorry about that but the outage affected all 274 condos on the property not just ours. I do hope you took advantage of our personal video library containing over 40 titles, including everything from cartoons to Bambi to John Wayne shootem ups. I am not aware of any draw bridges in the area. Our confirmation letter gives specific directions to the resort. All of our guests coming from Mississippi and Louisiana (and we have a lot) travel east on I-10 and go south on Gulf Shores Pkwy. You can reach the resort by taking the ferry from Dauphin Island but no one takes it as it adds about 2 hours to the trip. Again, I am sorry you were disappointed. Hopefully you will have a better vacation this year.

Excellent amenities, excellent location...great communication...would definitely recommend

  • 5 of 5

My family of 3 adults, one teenager, and one toddler stayed 4 nights. Unit couldn't be closer to the beach is right out the back door...also 2 outdoor pools right outside back door and an inside pool with hot tub infront of building. Weather was perfect. Condo bed's were super comfy. Condo had all amenities you could ask for including washer/dryer and iron and ironing board. Owners were extremely helpful and communicated fast. Would definitely recommend condo and hope to return someday.

Owner's Response: Debbie, thank you for such a kind review. We try to make our guests think of our condo as their "home away from home". One of the deciding factors when we purchased 10 years ago was the location - so convenient to everything. We are so glad you had a good time and hope you will come again soon. Thanks for staying with us. Russ and Janet
