Overview

About the property

1 Bed, 1 Bath, Sleeper Sofa , Sleeps 2-4, 3 Night Minimum

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 Gulf Shores

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

Condo was everything it promised.

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very clean and had everything we needed for our week stay. It provides a great view of the Gul from living room and the inter coastal waterway in the rear. We finally got to see the Blue Angels perform in Pensacola o the nicest day of the week. We also walked the beach two of the days. We also got to eat at the Oyster House Shrimp Basket, and Lamberts café. We really like the location of the condo as it is away from the hustle of the area around the town itself. The only thing that we missed was sitting on the docks behind the condo as they were destroyed by Hurricane Nate before our arrival. They did get one pier operational two days before we left. Looking forward to coming back again!!.

We have stayed at the facility before, but this condo was the best!

  • 5 of 5

Kathy was super to work with! She kept us updated on Hurricane Nate, and she wasn't trying to make an easy buck by getting us to her condo. She was more worried with our safety and how much we would enjoy this week. When it seemed safe, she gave us the option of coming on down, 10 hours from home, and even allowed us to check in early and check out late because of no prior bookings or bookings after our stay. The condo was great! The view was spectacular! We had everything we needed in the kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. The bed was super comfortable and the decor throughout the condo was to our liking. Thank you Kathy for a super Fall Break! We ended up having the best weather also! We will definitely be trying to book again soon!

Much needed getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have not had an alone vacation in many years. Captain's Retreat was exactly what we needed. We met many great people, the weather was great, the food was wonderful. The only negative we had was the receptionist at the property when we arrived wasn't very friendly. All in all, a WONDERFUL getaway.

We had a wonderful week! The condo was very comfortable and clean and had all the necessities!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great! Very comfortable with all the necessities! Easy to get to the beach or fish off the pier. The pool was beautiful but we're more beach people! Beach wasn't too crowded! Saw lots of dolphin and did lots of shell hunting! View of ocean from balcony was good too! The weather was perfect! Lots of shopping nearby for anything you need! Great restaurants for any taste! Very peaceful and quiet too! So relaxing! Property was clean and well maintained! We will definitely be returning!

We had a wonderful time and my daughters first trip to beach was a huge success. The room was great.

  • 4 of 5

The property was well maintained. A couple things that would make it even better, cleaner pool, and a hose at the rinse station coming from the beach. Also the worst part was the horrific smell in the elevator waiting area. Wow, very nauseating.
