About Melanie and Gerry Thompson

We live in New Orleans and as much as we love it we still look forward to getting away to Sugar Beach any time we can.

We costume for Mardi Gras, we dance to the music at Jazz Fest, and obviously enjoy the New Orleans restaurants.

Melanie and Gerry Thompson purchased this condo in 2008

Why Melanie and Gerry Thompson chose Alabama Gulf Coast

After visiting Orange Beach and Gulf Shores two or three times a year for about ten years we decided to invest in the area. We wanted a place that we could visit with our family and share with friends.

What makes this condo unique

This place is great. 4 swimming pools, directly on the beach, tennis court, 2 elevators, BBQ pits, sun deck, snack bar at poolside... what more could you want.

It's always immaculate, quiet and convenient. The beach is just a few steps away. There are every kind of restaurant, grocery store, wine shops and live entertainment within minutes of Sugar Beach.

The Orange Beach area is very 'kid friendly'. We have Water Parks, Amusement Parks, Miniature Golf, 'The Little Zoo That Could' not too close to be intrusive but within 5 minutes.

I would recommend this rental unit to anyone.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well kept. The unit exceeded our expectations. I think what made it so user friendly is the fact that the owners quite frequently use this unit themselves and so it is outfitted with not just the basics but with all the amenities that you would expect for your own use. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental to anyone who wants to have a comfortable and an affordable getaway for a weekend...a week...a month or as in our case...the entire winter. Thanks again for an enjoyable winter home.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review Earl. We really do love the beach and Sugar Beach. We have some guests who have been with us for 7 years in a row. We hope to make it feel like a home away from home. The complex is so centrally located, close to restaurants, shopping, and adventure parks while still being isolated from the hubbub of nightclubs and traffic. Thanks for staying with us this winter.

Good experience with super access to the beach

  • 3 of 5

The condo provided just what we needed. The location is perfect and pretty quiet. Our family of 5 (3 young children) had to get a little creative with the sleeping arrangements since the sofa sleeper isn't very comfortable.The futon and upstairs bed were better. The upstairs bathroom and linens in the closet could have been cleaner. We were going to use the mattress pad from the closet to help cushion the sofa sleeper only to find it with a big stain on it as did the mattress. I left it with the other linens to be cleaned. It would be helpful if a few trash bags were left underneath the sink. I left some other consumables in the kitchen for the next tenants. The kitchen was stocked enough for us to cook in most nights and the refrigerator works well even when full! We enjoyed our vacation!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you didn't get 100% from us during your stay. I wish you would have called me immediately so I could rectify the situation. I contacted housekeeping and they tell me they had changed out the mattress pad and left the stained one in the closet to show me when I got down. The standard setup for Gulf Coast VRBO rentals is a starter set of soap, dishwashing pod, paper towels and toilet paper and a garbage bag in each can. We really try hard to make each guest's visit fun and carefree. I hope the good outweighed the bad for you and you'll give us a second chance.

Updated, clean & comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my mom used this for a simple week on the beach. We loved how clean and well kept the condo was and the ability to have meals there and to not have to eat out all the time. We enjoyed eating lunches out to get out of the sun and making breakfast and dinner in the condo. There are several grocery options very near and affordable.

The complex is VERY quiet. Security at the complex is superior!! We had no problems until our last two nights when we had some rowdy neighbors. After one night of waiting until 3:45 am to call security the gentleman told us never to wait that long to call again that it is our vacation too and he wants to hear from us as soon as we are disturbed. The second night the noise was taken care of immediately. We understand neighbors are out of control of the owners but greatly appreciated how the complex handles those situations.

We enjoyed drinks from the shack several days on the beach and it was nice to not have to walk all the way to the room. The beach attendant was a very polite young man and even if you didn't rent chairs from him he was always willing to assist you. He went out of his way to learn guest names. While he doesn't work for the condos the association has chosen a superior company to work with.

Would rent this space again, it is perfect for a no nonsense beach vacation!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your thoughtful review. We were lucky enough to stay at various locations around Pensacola, Navarre Beach, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach before selecting our own Beach condo. Everyplace has it's plusses and minuses, but we felt the tally sheet on Sugar Beach was way above the others. Not excluding the fact that it's only 3 hours door to door for us. Please come back and stay with us again, we love our guests.

Clean, convenient and a fun getaway!

The condo was as described- comfortable, close to restaurants and convenient to the beach and pools. I liked the bedroom upstairs to cut down on noise from the hallway at night while sleeping. My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay during Spring Break season. We try to furnish everything that we would like to find in a rental ourselves and not kitsch it up too much. The restaurant options are fantastic in Orange Beach and priced very reasonably. Please consider us again when you decide to return to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
