Would stay again

  • 4 of 5

Private balcony with a beautiful 8th floor view. Perfect size for me and my husband. Non crowded beaches. Acceptable cleanliness. Couple of points because I have standards. Unknown hairs in linens, a good coating of dust on walls, vents, baseboards, and moldy shower curtain.

Enjoyed the access to chair rentals and the relaxed social setting of people staying at the condo.

Look forward to booking this condo possibly twice next year.

To far out

  • 2 of 5

We enjoyed the beach and inside the condo but we did not realize that it was so far from the original gulf shores....I feel that you need to put that in the comments of the condo..20 minute drive from the main strip of gulf shores.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you had a great vacation. We are located in the Fort Morgan areas of Gulf Shores rather than "downtown" Gulf Shores. Most folks enjoy this area for the private beach and resort which takes you away for the busy downtown area. It is about a 20 minute drive from the condo to the downtown area. Please come back and see us again soon!

Great low key getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 5 night getaway over 4th of July week. The building is well enough appointed. The condo itself was perfect for my husband and me. The balcony is tiny - just enough room for 2 chairs but the view makes up for the space. Everything worked well, it's close to Tacky Jack's (2) and Sassy Bass (3 miles) for food options and gorgeous beach. Only thing is there was only one half used roll of toilet paper! We did buy trash bags and paper towels but didn't expect to need to provide our own toilet paper. :) otherwise lovely affordable condo.

The location of the condo is wonderful. Not extremely crowded but in driving distance to the tourist-y things. The beach wasn't crowded at all. However, we were unable to get into our condo at check in time due to the code given to us being wrong. Our condo did not have an inspection before we arrived. There was hair in the bed that did not belong to me, nor my fiancé, which made us think the sheets had not been washed. We had to wipe our feet off before laying on the couch or in the bed because there was so much stuff on the floor, which made us think no one had swept. I'm not sure why we can't check in until 4 if the condo isn't going to be cleaned before hand. Nice complex, but I will not be renting this particular condo again.

Owner's Response: Alexandria - I am sorry we did not meet your expectations but wish you had taken advantage of our service guarantee. If you are not satisfied with how clean the unit is upon arrival the cleaning staff comes immediately and re-cleans the unit including changing the sheets again if you feel that would make you more comfortable. I am sorry your code did not work but we immediately resolved that problem when you arrived and you were in the unit promptly when you called us.
