About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Thank you for spending a few moments looking at our condo. We want you to know that we are vacationers too. We recently finished completely painting with new colors and furnishings. What we look for is a place that is affordable and is kept absolutely clean and has up to date furnishings. Our condo fits this description. You have a place that leaves you more money to spend on the rest of your vacation. You are using the same beach, same restaurants, same stores, same recreation places and other amenities that are used by the high priced condos. We also want to know what others have to say about our condo after they leave. We have many guest reviews for you to read. You don’t have to just take our word in the advertising. We have been blessed with so many wonderful guests over the past 11 years and have many repeat visitors.

Our condo is located in the heart of Gulf Shores. You can walk to a number of restaurants on wide sidewalks or walk to the many local flavor stores. Our condo is located directly across the street from the beach. We are on a corner and have a safe crossing light to our deeded access onto the beach. When you walk out the front door you will be standing on the beach in 3 minutes. You will be parking directly under our condo so your car stays safely covered for your stay.

Why do people keep coming back to Gulf Shores? Still has the small town beach feel. Still a family oriented city. Still the best Seafood restaurants anywhere. The incredibly white beaches that are so wide simply are beyond description until you see it yourself. Plenty of unique shopping places in Gulf Shores. All the familiar chain restaurants and stores are bordering Gulf Shores in Foley. Night time fun for families. Going to The Hangout during the day or night is a blast. Long walks down nearly secluded beaches in early mornings or before dark is a must.

Our condo has nearly every convenience you have at home. The kitchen is fully stocked so you don’t have to bring home to here. We even put in new granite countertops this year. Plenty of linens and towels too. We have Wifi so bring your laptop too. You will be working with us directly and you always have our phone number if you need us. We pride ourselves in responding every step of the way quickly and politely during the process of deciding and ultimately coming to our condo. We actively manage our condo and do all the cleaning and maintaining so we know what you want when you get here. Clean, Clean, Clean and comfortable!

About Randy Moris

Lisa and I thank you all for looking at our website. I’m not sure you can call us a success story but if working very hard to establish ourselves in the vacation market is success then we’ll take it. Both Lisa and I have worked full-time jobs in Mobile, AL while working our beach condo business at nights, weekends and any other time people need us. This really all started very simply for us in realizing a dream of buying a simple, humble condo in Gulf Shores. After going to the beach on vacations most of our lives we finally could say we had our own place to go to. We started renting out our condo and found there were people everywhere that want to come to the beach but were priced-out just like it was for us. Our first condo provided a way to come and not spend thousands to do it.

Lisa and I are the parents of a 32 year old son, Nicholas, and a 28 year old daughter named Jill. Jill thought so much of her parents that she has given us 2 granddaughters. It has added so much to our lives. We still live in Mobile and wear out I-10 and the Baldwin Beach Express going between Gulf Shores and home. We manage our own condos and help several friends with theirs. We do the majority of all the cleaning so that we can keep close tabs on each property and keep providing that personal touch. We aren’t a large or faceless company. We are people like you. Hard working people. We probably have many of the same problems but many of the same joys that you have. We are family people and connect well with the many families that come to our places here in Gulf Shores.

We really appreciate each and every one of you that take the time to check us out. And we’d love to have you get a sense of what we feel whenever we are at the beach.

Why Randy Moris chose Gulf Shores

We have always loved vacationing in Gulf Shores and always wanted our own place here. We loved it so much we now have 3 condos.

What makes this condo unique

It's not unique to come on vacation to the beach unless there is no beach where you live. The number 1 reason we always vacationed at Gulf Shores was to get on the beach. Of course there is always plenty of other activities to fill in your days and evenings but the beach was, is, and always be our first love. Oh, and saving money by staying at our condos.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great condo at a great price! It's walking distance from most everything you need. Right across the street from the beach. Randy is very good with communication as well.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is just across the street from the beach and very close to the main Gulf Shores attractions. The property was clean and maintained, and we didn't run into any problems at all during our stay.

Early Spring Trip

  • 5 of 5

We have rented from Randy and Lisa several times and the experience has always been positive. Their condos are always super clean and everything works as it should. Gentle Winds is a great place for us. A clean comfortable condo at a very reasonable price. Our van wouldn't start on our last night and my wife called Randy to see if he knew of anyone that could come try and jump us before I had it towed. He happened to be in town and came by to jump us. It was a bad battery. Thanks again Randy.

Very nice condo overall - good value

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice condo and very well maintained. The only reason not five-stars:

- no door for the bedroom. My wife SNORES badly and the openness, even with her on the sofa brought sleepless nights before a marathon.

The Waffle House right next to the unit, while brightly lit all night long was not a issue.

I would return again in a heartbeat with travelers who do not snore. It is tough to find this kind of value within walking proximity to the beach anywhere anymore.

Communications with the owner have been great and friendly.

Highly recommend this rental.

Our Second Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in one of Randy's and Lisa's variety of rentals for over the past 4-5 years now at least once, if not twice a year. This year we spent 9 nights in this rental as it is perfectly located across the street from the beach, they main reason for our visit to Gulf Shores. The rental is always spotless, and is decorated in ocean motif with comfortable furniture. The kitchen is stocked with every utensil you could possibly need and you will get a great nights sleep on quality, comfortable beds. We like that our auto is parked directly under the condo (covered and secure) and it's a close walk up some stairs to the condo. The balcony with chairs is an added plus to be able to sit out there with morning coffee and look across at a glimpse of the ocean and high rises. Plenty of restaurants nearby to walk to and eating in Gulf Shores is fantastic! There are Dolphins boat tours (we love these trips ) and the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola which is free and awesome to visit. A lot to see and do in the area. Randy's condos are an excellent place to stay for visiting Gulf Shores and the beach. We are already planning next spring's return visit, and will be once again staying here. When you have a great place to stay, why change?
