Gordon's Vacation Rentals Check out all our 5 Star reviews!

Our beautiful condo has amazing views. Resort style complex with all types of amenities. Gulf front view of the beautiful beach from your private balcony and the view of Little Lagoon from your bedroom. Our one-bedroom, one bath unit is located on the seventh floor. We have it tastefully decorated in a tropical decor with updated appliances and furniture. We have a 43 in TV and DVR in the living room and a 32in Tv in the bedroom. The kitchen is fully-equipped with everything you would ever need on vacation. The balcony is perfect for relaxing and listening to the surf while enjoying the beautiful gulf views. There is also a washer and dryer for your convenience. Personal secured WI-FI in the unit that is not shared so its full strength.

The unit is just under 500sf which we feel is perfect for a couple or small family. We also have a key less lock, so no keys to keep up with during your stay.

(Just a note about Privacy here, the one bedroom does not have a door. The bedroom is separated from the living room area by the kitchen and short hallway.)

The complex boasts beautiful lush palm trees and flowers that surround the large pool with a double sided rock waterfall. The children's pool is steps away along with a hot tub for the adults. Charcoal grills and picnic tables by the Lagoon are perfect for grilling out by sunset.The complex also has two lighted tennis courts and shuffleboard with the equipment available at no charge at the front office. For the boaters, we have a boat ramp and two private piers, one with boat slips with a $20 boat launch fee per vessel.

ACROSS THE STREET there is 100' of our private deeded beach with a covered Gazebo for our guests. All this and just a short distance from downtown Gulf Shores, you will find endless restaurants, shopping, and entertainment.

Why Kathy Gordon chose Alabama Gulf Coast

After we purchased 705A in 2006, we had to get 711A in 2007. Completely updated, the condo has a contemporary tropical decor.

Loved the condo, the owners and the property!!! It was clean, quiet, well kept and everyone was very friendly. It was a perfect family place or for just a couples getaway. We will definitely be back!!!

Overall a Great Value!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores for my husband and me. Overall we were pleased with our visit. The two cons we found were really minor.

Pros:

The beach view from the balcony was breathtaking.

Easy access to the beach across a quiet street.

Quick drive to restaurants and other area attractions.

The unit itself is nicely decorated and well maintained.

The space is large enough where someone can stay up late watching a movie and not disturb someone sleeping in the bedroom area.

Ample linens were available for use.

Cons:

The complex itself is noticeably older. Sometimes there were weird odors in the elevator areas.

We would have appreciated basic coffee supplies and cooking spices. (We had this at other VRBO properties.)

We had a great spring break in 711A. We love Gulf Shores. The beach is convenient and the pool and amenities are great. Brian and Kathy are awesome people and so easy to work with. Thanks so much for this visit!!!

Wonderful little condo!

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy little condo, just right for two people. Decor is warm and inviting, relaxing, tranquil. The balcony is perfect for watching pelicans and dolphins. The dock out back is the ideal place to catch sunrises and sunsets. And although you have to cross the road to access the beach, traffic was never heavy. The facility was quiet with very little road noise or neighbor-noise.

Stacey, at the front desk, was delightful and friendly, very welcoming. Kathy was easy to communicate with throughout the booking process. I was initially concerned about it being spring break season, but Kathy assured me it wouldn't be a problem, and it wasn't.

Wish we could've stayed longer.....I never knew the coast of Alabama was so beautiful. We will be back and hope to stay here (or in one of the Gordon's other condos) next time.
