Complex is located directly across the street from the Gulf of Mexico with its beautiful water and white sandy beaches and has deeded beach access. The property is the size of a city block, with plenty of room for the kids to throw a frisbee or just play in the yard.

This recently redecorated 1500sf townhome will give your family plenty of room to move. One private balcony overlooks the large, tropical property with swimming/kiddie pool, and tennis court. This balcony seats four for outdoor dining. Two other private balconies overlook Lagoon Avenue and are furnished with chairs and chaise lounges for relaxing and entertaining.

About Sherry

The Family

Sherry purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Sherry chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We chose this vacation home because we wanted the space of a home with easy access to the pool, no elevators and lots of outdoor space. We wanted to have easy access to the Gulf of Mexico and find that even though we are across the street from the beach, the walk to the beach (about 400 steps) is actually a shorter distance than if we were in one of the highrises that advertise being right on the beach. We chose Gulf Shores because it has all the entertainment and dining options you expect in vacation destination without all the congestion, traffic and high prices.

What makes this townhome unique

We love to spend time at our beach home and we hope you will too. We have tried to include little extras that you don't find in other rentals because they make our visits more enjoyable and we share them with our guests with the hopes of making their vacation the best it can possibly be. We have a huge selections of movies, a magazine and book exchange, HBO in every room, a fully stocked kitchen and very comfortable beds. We have a babysitter that lives right next door and a new Convenience Store, Shake's Custard and Foxy's Grill right at the corner. We are always open to suggestions on thing we can do to improve and we welcome guest comments after each stay.

Summer Vacation 2009

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as it was advertised! Wonderful owner to work with, always answered any questions I had. Short walk to the beach, ice cream, and mini market. Kids loved the pool. Clean and quiet. Had a great time! Would definitely recommend to someone else!!!! Would recommend the Dophin Cruises, Gator Alley was awesome and bring a rod and reel to fish down at Perdido pass or off the beach. My husband and son parasailed. They really enjoyed it and you can't forget Lambert's, home of the thrown rolls! Oh and the Estuarium on Daulphin Island, take the Ferry at Ft. Morgan.

Clean and comfy!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Gulf Shores. The townhome was a great fit for our family with 2 kids. The house was clean and stocked with towels and essentials.

It was great to be able to cook when we wanted or go out to eat at any of the restaurants near by. We also enjoyed the easy access to the beach across the street. We walked there daily during our stay. The pool, being just behind the property, was a great bonus!

Thank you!

Home away from home - perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, the location as it pertained to the beach, local shops, restaurants, and attractions (The Track). We plan on returning to Gulf Shores and would love to rent this property again. The property and surrounding area was peaceful, the perfect accommodation to a relaxing vacation. The owner communicates kindly and rapidly, and the property manager was pleasant to speak with also. Only recommendation for improvement we can offer is fixing the air conditioner. It was very warm during the day time or if the oven was on. We spent most of the day hours on the beach, so it didn't affect us too bad. We have already recommended this property to our friends, and are trying to plan our next trip!

Great Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely wonderful place. We enjoyed our stay everyday. Everything was nice, neat, and clean. Exactly as advertised! The owners were great people to work with and the property manager was very welcoming as well. The townhouse is across the street from the beach, but the walk was not bad at all. We actually enjoyed walking, help us get oir excersie! I hope to rent from Sherry and Craig again.

Close to the action

  • 3 of 5

The location of this rental is great. Very close to hwy 59 where all the action is. The townhouse could have been cleaner. We found a whole basket full of dirty towels in one of the ottomans in the bathroom and some of the dishes were not clean. The pans were basically useless. They were so small and old we couldn't hardly cook in them. Let's just put it this way...the kitchen equipment needs replaced badly. As far as overall enjoyability goes, it was great for the price. I couldn't have asked for more...and yet, I have. hahaha!

Owner's Response: We strive to provide the most enjoyable vacation possible. That's why we encourage questions before each stay and respond to requests to the best of our ability. That's also why we welcome feedback, so we can continue to improve the experience for future guests. Our past reviews have always commended us on the cleanliness of our home, but I have shared this review with the cleaning staff and asked that they check the dishes between each rental. The fact that there were dirty towels in the ottoman surprises both me and the cleaning staff, since we have no towels missing. The ottomans are only used for sitting, so the cleaning staff doesn't typically look in them, but I have asked that they be checked between rentals. The kitchen has a variety of pots and pans of various ages including a set that was purchased January 11, 2012: Farberware Classic Stainless Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set $64.17 Qty: 1 Sold by: Amazon.com As we buy new items we do purge a few older items but I keep some of the older pots and pans as well. Finally, on June 11, 2012 the guest that wrote this review asked if we had a crock pot in the beach home. We did not have one, so in order to make this families vacation more enjoyable I purchased one and had it shipped to the condo June 20, 2012: Crock-Pot SCCPVL600S Cook' N Carry 6-Quart Oval Manual Portable Slow Cooker, Stainless Steel $28.34 Qty: 1 Sold by: Amazon.com. We know how valuable vacation time is, and we want to help you have the best vacation possible. I hope this helps to answer any questions this review may have raised and thank you for considering our beach home for your vacation!
