Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Cove, this condo is on the quiet side of the complex. It has a view of the beach which is only minutes away. The unit has been newly redecorated and makes for a private and quiet vacation. The unit is located just across the road from the beach and is located where Beach blvd splits into Lagoon road. You are just minutes away from all the activties that Gulf Shore provides, however Condo owners have been advised that the access provided in the past through the two condos as shown in picture is no longer available. The nearest access to beach is approx. one - . two blocks to the left of the condo at the red light close to Bahama Bob's.

The Cove sits on the shore of the Lagoon. There is a private boat launch with two private piers, where you can fish so bring your tackle. You can also jet ski or go boating or enjoy the beautiful sunset from our gazebos. Eight smoker grills plus Picnic tables are located throughout the property for your convenience.

Their is no charge or fees for parking or boat launching.

We are only minutes from the beaches of the gulf. The Condo is located in the heart of Gulf shores and is within walking distance of Pier 33. Bahama Bob's is located close by where you can enjoy one of his famous Burgers. Nearby are the Mall and Water ville Park

Those who have stayed in this condo have told me that they enjoyed their stay.

I would hope to have you do the same.

About David Friedman

Faye & I love to come to the beach in the spring and fall. The weather is wonderful and we do not have to fight the crowds.

The restaurants are available and we can take walks on the beach without stepping on the sun worshippers.

Older couples can enjoy all the best that the coast can offer.

See you in Gulf Shores

Very Satisfied

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at The Cove. The owner, David was quick to respond when I asked about information on renting the condo. When I paid the fees, I accidently over paid by $100. David immediately contacted me and told me about my over payment and mailed me a check. It is nice to know there are still honest people out there! When we arrived at the condo it was very clean. It had everything we needed for a week of fun. After a few days there David called to make sure we were happy. It was nice to know he cared about how our visit was going. We had a wonderful time and cannot wait to go back for another visit.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review. My maintenace man (Shane ) is responsible for the unit being kept clean and up to my standards. He is always available if something is not right and of course so am I. I always make sure that my guests are comfortable so that these few days are memorable. Thanks again Tiffany and I hope to hear from you again. Have a healthy and good life. David

Amazing Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arrived on May 29, 2017 and stayed till June 3rd. Our stay at your home was a wonderful experience. We were so close to the beach and could simply walk over. The home was perfect and very comfortable. We were not only close to the beach but some very fun places to visit and check out as well! I would recommend this to anyone in my family or friends! It was a lovely experience and you were very helpful when i had questions! :)

great stay

  • 5 of 5

Location and condo just as described. We liked it so much that we plan to go back again next year, if David will have us. There is beach access directly across the street just a couple hundred yards. The only complaint would be the wifi only worked occasionally.

Thank you Mr. Friedman

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Mr. Friedman's condo recently with my husband for our annual Gulf Shores vacation, this condo was the perfect size for us. Beach access was close by, a short walk away. Upon arrival, everything was clean, and lots of towels, toiletries, and kitchen items were supplied. The only negative issue we had was not the owners fault... the next day after arrival the A.C. unit died completely. Mr. Friedman quickly called an A.C. repair company for us, and he authorized the unit to be replaced the very next morning. So the unfavorable situation was quickly remedied, and we are very grateful for the owner having it fixed so quickly. Another positive note, anyone coming to stay here now, you will have a brand new A.C. unit! It cools super fast.
