Why The Owner chose Alabama Gulf Coast

After looking at condos in several other complexes, we chose Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet because of the beautiful tropical pool area and clean white sand private beach.

What makes this condo unique

You have water all around you here with the Gulf on one side and the Lagoon on the other.

Best Family Vacation Spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this condo for the last 4 nights. It was perfect from arrival to departure! We brought our kayaks, and were able to see them in the lot at all times. This unit is an end unit on the lagoon side. The sunsets from the balcony off the bedroom are to die for! The pool was fantastic with plenty of chairs. We enjoyed kayaking over to Little Lagoon Pass. We loved evening fishing from the piers. We caught a few crabs in our trap. The AC in the room was phenomenal! I forgot my blender, and was so happy to see there was one in the condo. It was my lifesaver! Our boys had a great time, and our family will be booking this condo again very soon! Also, all emails were responded to within an hour. Having been to the beach hundreds of times, I can honestly say that our family had the best time here!! We hated to leave!!!!

Super Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet Club. It was conveniently located to all the amenities Gulf Shores has to offer as well as Orange Beach. The people staying at the condo we super friendly, some were there visiting like we were and others were owners and showed us much hospitality. The room was comfy and provided a great view with lovely sunsets.

Close to all the attractions & quiet area!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed ourselves (my husband & I) and the quiet area. The condo is close to all attractions but just enough away from the noise. The living room balcony has a lovely view of the lagoon, tennis courts, pool area. They have a new outside glass table with chairs. We ate out most of the time however there is plenty of pots pans utensils to cook with. This is our second time staying at this condo and were pleased both times with owners and surroundings will be back again. We enjoyed eating and dancing at Nolan's Restaurant on Hwy 59 close to hotel maybe five miles or so. Try Kitty's Cafe in the Pelican Shopping mall in the Foley area real good smothered hashbrowns. For a little adventure we did the Hummingbird Zipline at the Gulf Shores State Park will go back again really enjoyed zipline with the views of the Gulf & Lake. Most the zipline is over water. Want to go when they offer the night time zipping. Thank you for the wonderful long weekend, hope to come again.

R&R Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to relax, enjoy the sun, beach, sea breeze, birds, seafood, fishing, boating, recreation and whatever else you have the time and energy for! The condo is very nice, and it truly felt like home away from home. Very clean! Great bed! Very nice appliances and furniture! Two flat screen TVs with lots of channels to choose from. The front balcony overlooking Little Lagoon is very spacious. The back balcony is smaller, but a great place to watch the beautiful sunsets. This property has good elevators, which is something I really appreciate!

My morning ritual was sitting on the front balcony overlooking Little Lagoon and listening to soft coos from mourning doves while I enjoyed a nice mug of coffee. As the morning progressed, mockingbirds began to sing their hearts out, as an occasional gull would make their presence known. Typically, there is a heron which roosts near the tennis courts, and looks for food around the two piers.

The beautiful white-sand beach is very easy to access, and the walkways are spacious and in great shape. The swimming pool, tennis courts, horse shoe area, and shuffle board area provide plenty of on-site recreational opportunities, and the charcoal barbecue grills with picnic tables on both B and C sides are very convenient. If you have a boat, there is a launch area and also a boat parking area, plus several dockside slips.

Anyone who frequents the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area knows that there a many great places to eat. Just a little over a mile east from this condo, there is a great take-out cook-to-order seafood market. They steam, grill or fry their ample selection and they have a half dozen tasty sides. I especially liked their slightly spicy steamed red potatoes. Having a fully functional kitchen and counter-top appliances, you cook your own meals and blend frozen drinks to suit your tastes.

In summary, I highly recommend this rental property! The owners are truly the best I’ve encountered in my decades of experience. We look forward to renting their condo again very soon!
