Alabama Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 bedrooms + other (see description), 2 bathrooms, sleeps (4-6)

minimum rental age 25. BUILDING 3 Unit 3222

When I am trying to decide on a place to vacation in an array of so many condos, I always think about what sets a condo apart from the majority. WE have some benefits others do not. We are truly owner operated, therefore prices are lower. Be aware most on VRBO have become companies that charge more. We also did extensive renovation to be able to offer an in unit washer/dryer, most do not have one at this complex. The ad will say washer/dryer, but it is a hall laundry mat. You won't be disappointed in what you see and what you read here. We are honest.

Accommodations: Condo, 2 bedroom (QUEENS), 2 bath, sofa bed . Sleeps 6.

NO PETS, NO SMOKING 3 night minimum 2nd floor unit

Beautiful Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience in renting a vacation condo and it will not be our last! The unit was tastefully decorated and spotless. The couch and beds were very comfortable. Extra blankets and pillows were provided. The kitchen was stocked with every gizmo you could want. This unit has a combination washer/dryer HE machine, which took a bit of getting used to. It was easy to operate and worked quite well for us. The owner has installed a keyless lock system, so no key or key card is necessary. We would definitely stay here again!

Lovely Condo and Great Amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My party of 6(4 adults, 2 kids) stayed here May 8-11. Upon driving to the guardhouse, the guard wanted to see proof of rental, so make sure you have that. The condo itself is as shown in the pictures: very nicely decorated and clean. The beds were super comfortable, so I slept like a baby. I was not a fan of the HE washer/dryer: it takes rather a long time to finish. As I didn't go on vacation to do laundry, this didn't affect my trip at all.

The distance to the beach is great; it's just a short walk across the parking lot and down the boardwalk. My party and I loved the indoor pool area. We went there literally every day of our stay to enjoy the jacuzzi, pool, steam room, and sauna.

Mind that this condo is situated around 15-20min away from town. It's worth it for the privacy, amenities, and loveliness of the condo, though. We will definitely try to rent this condo again!

The cleanest condo I have ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay!! This condo is all that is stated. Beautifully decorated with great upkeep. The owner is easily reached by phone. Felt safe at all times. My kids loved eating on the balcony while viewing the beach and ocean. Will stay again soon.
