NOT a five star unit!

  • 3 of 5

This is the second review; the first one magically disappeared. This unit is aging and faded. Comfortable beds snd couch, nice, private balcony with great views. Parking bad, cleanliness poor, dust coated fake plants. This unit is OK, not the five star unit that is advertised, not even close.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your constructive review. Unfortunately your stay occurred after a long term rental and a deep clean did not happen until you departed. During a deep clean we do a number of task such as cleaning the vents and dusting the plants. We are very sorry the schedule did not permit our deep cleaning earlier. I would like to point out that we have 65 five star reviews, 3 four star, and now your 1 three star review. In your note to me [by the way when I get an email with a guest raving or critical, I never post either.] you mentioned that this was your first time renting a condo and that you really have nothing to compare our offering. I think there may have been a misunderstanding of what we advertise. We do not claim to be a 5 star hotel, the reviews from individuals overwhelmingly say our condo is in the perfect location, beautifully decorated, fantastic view and that we are very responsive to any issues that arise. For those reasons they award us with there individually arrived at rating, just as you have.

Larry was really great to work with and answered any questions I had in a timely manner. The condo was a great location and had a great view. It was as expected from the pictures. An added plus was that the Sea N Suds was on location also within walking distance of other places to eat. We hope to come back next year and would definitely rent from Larry and Jan again. Beds were very comfortable, washer and dryer came in handy, fully equipped kitchen with crock pot, blender, toaster, etc. The only down fall for someone with leg problems would be there is no walk in shower only bathtubs with showers. We ate at Mikee's, Lamberts, LuLus, Pink Pony, and Sea N Suds and all were good.

Nice condo, excellent view, and affordable.

  • 4 of 5

This 2 bedroom unit has more than adequate space and is nicely furnished. It has a nice sized balcony with an awesome view where we would sit almost every morning and watch the dolphins. The kitchen has almost everything needed to cook meals. The only real drawback was the parking. There are only 40 or so spaces for a 70 unit condo and a restaurant uses some to valet park their customers, so at times we had to park across the street. Oh yea, the pool was really nice as well.

Owner's Response: We have now switched cleaning companies for all of our 4 condos. We hope this move will offer our guest what they deserve plus we can offer an upgrade to towels and Linens. We now use a min of 650 thread count, Egyptian cotton sheets and high end bath towels to enhance your stay at our "Best in Class" Condos. We also were able to get them to leave some extra supplies. Come back and see us. Larry and Jan

Larry was great to work with and the location was fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay and Larry and Jan Grossman's condo. The location was fantastic! The beach was not too crowded and it was beautiful! The accommodations were all that we had hoped for. I have already recommended this condo to family and friends. You can't go wrong staying here! Everything that was stated about the property was accurate.

Wonderful Family Vacay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th trip to Gulf Shores. It was the first time for us to stay in a condo. This unit did not dissapoint! We cannot say enough about how great this condo was. From the beach location, to the pool, to the fully equipped kitchen, we wouldn't have changed a thing other than wishing we could have stayed longer!!!

Nice condo, great beach location, cleaning staff left a lot to be desired

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived, the parking was a little to be desired but we were aware we may have to park across the street from the information we were provided when we chose this condo. Luckily, we did not have any small children because you had to cross E. Beach Boulevard which can sometimes be very congested and be very hard for drivers to see you at night. When we got into the condo, the view was absolutely gorgeous from the balcony!! There was a very nice table with tall chairs on the balcony to enjoy the view while enjoying the sounds of the waves at all times of the day and evening. The condo was decorated very nice and the furniture was extremely nice and you could tell that the owners had not held back with regards to the cost of the furniture. The beds in both bedrooms were extremely comfortable and had very plush linens and comforters on them. The kitchen appliances were very nice and the washer and dryer appeared to be close to brand new.

Unfortunately, I do not believe the cleaning staff are doing the owners' justice nor are they doing the job they are getting paid to do. However, there is a book that the owners leave in the condo and they ask you to write in it as to how your stay was. It appeared we were not the only ones that had this problem so hopefully this will be rectified in the near future. It would be a shame for the actions of incompetent cleaning staff to cause a wonderful condo owned by great owners to be jeopardized.
