Reserve your vacation at one of the newest, upscale condos in Gulf Shores. San Carlos is conveniently located 3/10 of a mile down East Beach Blvd and is a direct beach front condominium complex. It offers both open and covered parking and with three elevators.

We also have two condos at The Lighthouse, just 1/10 of a mile away and is very similar to the San Carlos complex in style and amenities. The 3 bedroom/3 bath condo is vrbo # 289529 and the 2 bedroom with bunkroom/2 bath is vrbo # 222766. These are both on the 3rd floor and you are able to park right outside your door and walk in the unit. These condos are direct gulf front units also !

Our unit is located on the 4th floor and has three large bedrooms, three bathrooms, a spacious living room, kitchen and laundry. The living room has a 46 inch tv with dvd player. The master bedroom has a 26 inch tv and dvd player and both guest rooms have 19 inch sets with built in dvd players. All of the tvs are the new flat panel LCD/HD sets. Our condo also has Wifi . There is a wet bar located next to the kitchen in the living room. It has all the necessary barware including several styles of glasses & utensils. All of our bedrooms have king size beds and pillowtop mattresses. We also have a newer sectional sleeper sofa. The dining room has seating for six and there are an additional seats at the bar for four. The kitchen is well stocked with service for 16 persons. The bedrooms are carpeted and the rest of the entire condo is beautiful earth-tone colored tile.

We know you may not want to go out for every meal so we have made sure there is ample cookware/baking ware plus all the major and small appliances. We also have included a variety of cards, games,puzzles, books and dvds for your enjoyment. The tiled balcony is accessible from both the living room and the master bedroom. We have six all weather wicker chairs and two cocktail/end table for those leisurely outdoor meals and basking in the sun. Imagine taking in the surise while watching the dolphins play in the tranquil waters! Listen to the waves crash while soaking up the last rays from the Gulf sunsets- life just doesn't get any better than this!

Our condo is located in the enclosed area with the elevators which is very nice since that area is heated and cooled year round. The rooms have been decorated with an upscale flair. This is not your cookie cutter condo. We hear the same thing after speaking with our guests:

'You have an awesome condo !' and 'This is the nicest place we have ever stayed!'. This is our intention too.We want to have a place where people want to visit again year after year plus tell their friends and family about. When you hear rave reviews, you know you are doing something right. We have been renting our condos since 2009 and we have many families that return each year for their vacations.

Enjoy your spacious master bedroom with a magnificent view. There is a private dressing area and large walk-in closet off of the master bathroom. The master bath boasts tiled floors, a huge jacuzzi tub and a separate glassed-in shower. The other two bedrooms have their own bathrooms,one of which is accessible from the hallway.

San Carlos has a great fitness center located to the right of the 3rd floor lobby. There are floor to ceiling windows for a great beach view while you work out or if you prefer, watch tv. There is a sauna next to the center plus shower facilities close by. There is also on-site security for you privacy and protection. The streets of Gulf Shores have marked lanes for walkers/runners/cyclists plus there are trails nearby to access.

On a personal note- we had previously visited the Gulf Shores area and it is hands-down our favorite vacation spot. If you have never been to this region on the Gulf, we know that it will become yours too. For those of you returning, you know exactly what I mean. This is a very family friendly town and everything is located either a short walk or drive away. The beautiful white sand and turquoise water is like no other. We have outfitted the rooms to make it a home away from home with your comfort and relaxation foremost in mind. Don't wait another minute, go ahead and book your vacation with us today!

About The Owner

We welcome you to stay in our condo ! If you have never been to the Gulf Shores area you are in for a spectacular time ! If you are returning to the area- you know exactly what I mean! We hope to provide you with the very best vacation possible and have furnished the condo so it is more like a home than just a bare bones place to stay. It is very important to be able to relax and 're-charge' your batteries and this is definitely the place to do it at .

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Alabama Gulf Coast

Gulf Shores is an extremely family friendly town. It is very clean and caters to all ages including 'snowbirds' in the winter months. It is a beautiful area and everything is centrally located. There is not nearly enough time to see and do everything you want in Gulf Shores in a week.

What makes this condo unique

The San Carlos itself has a great fitness center. The pool area is spacious and has ample seating

and lounge chairs. There is just a short walk to the beach and there are full service chairs and umbrellas available for the day or week. The Sea and Suds, Pink Pony Pub and The Hangout are all just a few minutes walk away for great beachside dining. The San Carlos is a very new complex and is only 5 to 10 minutes away from most everything you want to see or do on your trip.

I stayed here again this year. I had several friends and relatives also visiting me for various lengths of time. We were all pleased with the condo. Several people in the building complained about cold floors, etc but we weren't one of them. The owners had made several updates since the last time. There was a new refrigerator, dishwasher and washing machine plus new faucets. The owners keep this unit up-to-date. If It needs anything, they take care of it right away. I always enjoy using the exercise room. I can hardly wait to come back next year!!

Excellent Condo

  • 5 of 5

My and family and I stayed here for a week. There were 10 people total and there was plenty of room. With 3 bedrooms and bathrooms makes it easy for every one. The view is spectacular and the beach is great. We had a problem with the washer half way in our stay and with one call to Melissa she had one ordered and on its way. There was a problem with Lowe's not being able to deliver so she had enough towels delivered to our room so we wouldn't be without. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone and hope to be able to return here for vacation next year.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

I and my friends are back again this year. The colder weather didn't dampen our spirits in this nice 3 bedroom condo. We now have new gel mattress toppers on all the beds. They are so comfortable. If you want a nice place to stay, this is it! Plan on coming back next year.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the condo for 2 1/2 months, January-Mid March and it was GREAT! I was fortunate to meet John and Melissa, the owners. If anything needs to be fixed, they fix it. I had several people visiting they were well pleased. Looking forward to staying there next year.

Very Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great. The 3 king beds with 3 families was perfect. There was plenty of room for everyone. There were a few light bulbs out and a remote control missing in one of the bedrooms and they were there the next day with one phone call. That type of response time is rare and we really appreciated their efforts. The condo has everything that is says it does. The balcony is large and has a wonderful view.

If you ever get a chance to stay in Gulf Shores do not pass on the opportunity to rent this condo. You will not be disappointed.

Gulf Shores Getaway

  • 5 of 5

the condo was as described with exception of the sofa. The one pictured was different but thiswas no big deal. It was clean and very well kept. The location was the best feature and we would love to stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your commentary. We did just replace the leather couch out in February 2013 and had not updated the photo to reflect that change. Unfortunately, some of the material was having issues is a few places- in someone's home it could easily be disguised by an afghan/throw. We chose to replace it with a tasteful, tropics themed print that does have a hide-a-bed as well. San Carlos is right on the beach and a very short walk to many restaurants which is very convenient. We do hope you visit again ! Thanks !
