About Gail Blue Tides

We choose this location because of the proximity to the beach and the great location on the little lagoon.

Gail Blue Tides purchased this condo in 2007

Why Gail Blue Tides chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We choose this location because of the close proximity to the beach but also we have great views of the lagoon. The lagoon offers a peaceful view of tremendous sunrises and sunsets! We love the gazebo on the Lagoon which presents a nice opportunity for fishing or just relaxing.

What makes this condo unique

Our property has one of the nicest pool areas in Gulf Shores, Alabama. We have 28 Loungers surrounding the pool. There is also a kiddie pool and a hot tub!

Fun Time in the Sun

  • 4 of 5

We came with family and friends. The property is lovely. It was well maintained and nicely decorated. We have a couple of small issues to which the owner and property manager responded very quickly. The children (ages 4-12) enjoyed the indoor and outside space. We easily walked to the beach and the neighbors along the way were very nice. I brought my road bike -- the streets are very bike friendly.

WalMart is close by as well as a well stocked local grocer for emergency runs. The restaurants were super busy, so be prepared to wait.

The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 are not huge. I am not a paper/plastic plate person. The space is supposed to accommodate 10, however there were only enough plates for 8 for dinner. So, we need to use paper. There are four houses using the pool. The size of the pool is a little small for so many families.

We felt tight in the family room when all trying to watch a movie. There isn't enough comfy seating -- in fact the space can't hold any more furniture.

Overall, it as a very good stay. I would recommend it to others.

Great Place to stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great clean place to stay. I felt so relaxed and enjoyed the time our family got to spend together. It was so nice to have a pool and kid pool. We will for sure go back and bring friends to come. We had 2 families in our house and there was more then enough room.

The condo is nice, clean, had plenty of room, was well furnished and well maintained. As advertised, there are tv's in each bedroom and in the living room. However, for some reason, there was no cable tv so we were stuck with 6 local channels only which necessitated us loitering well beyond finishing our meals at a local restaurant in order to see some of the big game. Also, the fridge was new/modern but had no ice maker nor were ice trays provided so we could make ice. Rather, daily ice runs had to be made. Owners can't and don't guarantee cable tv but no ice maker... don't know, just know this was disappointing in an otherwise great vacation.

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores. As it was Spring Break, we decided not to stay in a high rise condominimum and hoped to be away from the Spring Break activity as we were two families with children ranging in ages from 14 to 5. Unfortunately, we were still surrounded by Spring Breakers. The group immediately adjacent to our duplex was fine but those in the other duplex buildings were loud, and disorderly. The beach is a little bit of a hike from the house following the road especially if carrying things. No real clear means of walking between home due to high grasses. Appreciated the use of two chairs and available umbrella. Having a pool and hot tub was nice but again the Spring Breakers overtook the areas most of the time. We did not use. The home was furnished nicely as described and maintained. The duplex is described as four bedroom but the room with twin beds and trundle (Junior Suite) is really a common area at the top of the stairs with no door or available closet so there was no privacy as all others had to walk thru their room.Owner was responsive to an issue with one of the bedrooms and it was appreciated. Gail even offered us a gift certificate to make it right. We enjoyed our stay but would not stay again during Spring Break and would consider staying closer to or on the beach next time. Despite Spring Breakers, we had a nice time.

Thanks so much Gail and D...

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much Gail and Don for an incredible vacation spot! There were two families with a total of six children and your condo was absolutely perfect. We had an incredible amount of space, there were plenty of activities for all ages, and we loved that it was a family friendly area (rather than among the college-age spring breakers). The condo was clean, well-kept, and the location was central to many family activities. We found four other families from West Michigan were also in Gulf Shores, a favorite destination for Spring Break! The lagoon was fun for the kids to catch crabs, and the walking path to the ocean was perfect distance. We were also able to run every morning on the road in front of the condo b/c there was little traffic. The pool was perfect entertainment as well, and there were nice lounge chairs for parents and a kiddie pool for the little ones. We would love to return and are so thankful for dealing with owners with exceptional integrity. Thanks from the Gauthier and Florido family!
