About Gary & Laura Merello

The first year after taking an early retirement we bought our first Gulf Shores Condo (Our 2/bedrm, listing 23432, is just down the hall) It's always been a peaceful beach get-away. Away from the normal tourist congestion but with numerous actives a short drive away. It seems like every trip we make, we find new Gulf Shore friends in the complex and new places to explore. We've always enjoyed our beach get-away

Gary & Laura Merello purchased this condo in 2001

Why Gary & Laura Merello chose Alabama Gulf Coast

Beaches were always our passion. We couldn't wait to travel to new tropical settings. The tranquility and beauty always puts us in proper perspective of appreciation for the gifts of nature.

After the first trip to Gulf Shores Alabama, we knew it was a place we wanted to return again and again.

We've love visiting by ourselves, with our family (10 grandchildren) and friends. The beach never disappoints us.

What makes this condo unique

The complex has enough amenities that you can stay at condo, relax and eat-in. But the local wildlife, restaurants, actives and nightlife offer some wonderful choices worth seeking out.

We love the Buffett-sound and the southern-country rock. These musical talents are well showcased in Gulf Shores

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our vacation was fantastic. We loved your condo. It was well equipped,

had a fabulous view, and was everything we expected. I hope we can come

again next year and stay a full week. We were not ready to come home.

Thanks for allowing us to visit.

Larry and Rita Walck. Tenants for one week.

We rented your condo for our honeymoon. It was very nice and clean. It was well furnished with everything you could possibly need. The view from the balcony of the ocean was beautiful. Gary was always great to return our calls and work with us on any questions or concerns that we might have had. My one and only suggestion would be to get a taller and bigger table for the bedroom. It was too low and I kept knocking thinks off. Would highly recommend this condo to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We're so glad you had a good time and congrats on starting your new life together. We like your idea of a taller table and will try to implement that suggestion on our next trip down. Best Wishes and hope to hear from you on your anniversary! Gary & Laura

The room was good. The location was further out than I normally like. But it was ok. I would recommend to my friends.
