About Gina & Rudi

These two are the reason we're still here... and we're sure glad we are.

Gina & Rudi purchased this condo in 1996

Why Gina & Rudi chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We bought pre-construction, initially impressed by the quality of construction and the reputation of the builder.

In 1996, this was a newly developing area, and for this reason, today, it is an upscale area, closer to newer shopping and restaurants. We liked it then and we like it now.

What makes this condo unique

The kids (and friends, of course) enjoy the indoor pool, all year round. Tennis can get a little breezy, but on a calm night (and nights are usually calm), it's great.

If you've got kids, it's so handy, on the 2nd floor, but not over the pool, being able to walk out or sit out on the balcony and check on them from time to time, without having to deal with typical pool noise.

The indoor pool is on our floor, as well. We've found it an all around great setup for kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

George,

What a blessing our little trip to the beach. We had great weather - not a drop of rain that we saw. Mostly sunny with just rolling clouds. Sparsely populated - which is how we like it. I'll be mailing you the keys plus one knife that is making the trip to Raymond in the pan of rice krispie treats. Jimmy said he could have stayed another day or two - unusual for the non-beach guy. Thanks for being so easy to deal with.

Lesley

The Beach was gorgeous.

  • 4 of 5

The beach was gorgeous as it looks.

Our Condo did not include the beach chairs they had to be rented daily.

Nice condo

  • 3 of 5

The condo was spacious and in a good location. Nice beach view. It is right across from the elevator which is a plus and minus. Having been charged a 'cleaning fee', I expected the condo to be clean, it was not clean. I would not stay at this condo again.

A great place for our extended stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the spectacular view, and the large, comfortable, and nicely appointed unit. We loved sitting on the spacious balcony, and appreciated the easy beach access. We were grateful for the accommodating owners, and the many amenities of the property. We recommend this unit to everyone.

Beachfront on the gulf

  • 4 of 5

This is our second stay in this unit. It is ideal for us. We love the view and the sound of the gulf from the large balcony which is accessible from both the living and master bedroom area. There are plenty and diverse nearby restaurants. The owners were accommodating.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my three adult children and three grandchildren in Gina & Rudi's condo the week of June 20th. The condo is spacious and comfortable with everything that you need. Love the separated bedrooms. Being on the second floor was so convenient to both inside pool, outside pool and beach. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
