About The Owner

We vacationed as a family for several years in this area and fell in love with Indian Shores and this condominium in particular. We decided to purchase a family vacation property, which we have opened up to friends and renters.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

The Gulf Shores Condominium is known for having one of the largest and best maintained beaches on the Gulf. Additionally, the building is exceptionally clean, quiet and safe. It offers gorgeous water views from both sides. We enjoy looking at the inter-costal while making food in the kitchen and the sunsets from the living room and Master suite are truly amazing. Since this is our family's home away from home, it is fully equipped and you will find everything you need for a relaxing vacation.

Great Value

  • 5 of 5

It is not often that you find a vacation rental right on the beach that lives up to its listing, but this unit exceeds on all fronts. It is very clean, well maintained and up to date with granite counters, modern stainless steel appliances, comfortable beds and two generous-sized high definition television screens. We enjoyed views of the Gulf to the west and the inland waterway to the east. In this monthly rental building we were able to avoid the noise and commotion that we have come to associate with the younger populations in short-term rentals accommodation. Although the unit is rented monthly the cost is less than most other condos on the beach charge for a two-week stay.

We found this unit very good value for the dollar. It is an all-inclusive rate with no hidden costs added on for cleaning fees, parking charges, damage deposits, etc. The building is also well-maintained and the pool area and walkways are cleaned daily. While we were here in December the entire building was repainted. It has a fresh new look. The owners, Sarah and Paul, were a pleasure to deal with. We plan to return again and would recommend this condo highly to vacationers who value a restful and trouble-free stay.

Excellent Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure of renting this beautiful condo the last three years for six weeks, and planning to return again this year. The Condo is always very clean upon arrival and well equipped with all the necessities that make our stay so enjoyable. Colours are so bright and pleasing and lots of beach originated decor. Beautiful quiet beach to walk in the morning, and excellent sunsets in the evening. This is a very good central location with lots of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment in the area. We would not hesitate to recommend this Condo to anyone, and the owners Paul & Sarah are the most accommodating couple as renters. Highly recommend!

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Recently had the fortune of staying at this condo for two weeks. It was perfect vacation spot for my two small children. The condo was very clean and well decorated. Beds were comfortable. Everything you possibly need was provided. Even had a storage locker with beach chairs. We opted to rent the lounge chairs at the next door property. Very few people on the beach or in the pool on any given time. Perfect for a relaxing break.

Condo is exactly as it appears in the photos And the owner was great to work with you.

Wonderful Stay - Spa-like Vibe

  • 5 of 5

This unit was sleek, clean, inviting and perfectly decorated. Soothing colors, new appliances, wood floors and just enough beach-y touches to be comfortable and relaxed -without screaming 'beach condo'. We have stayed in several condos from Clearwater to St. Pete and have seen it all. We will definitely return to this one! The owners, Paul and Sarah were quick to reply and a joy to work with. We have family and friends who own in this building, and I'm pretty sure this unit has inspired some of them to remodel :) Everything you need within the condo is provided. Guidelines for use of the unit, and the Gulf Shores building, are clear and manageable. Parking is limited to two spots (and enforced). The pool is located on the street side of the building and is a perfect size for a dip after the beach. My husband and I stayed with our two teenage daughters comfortably. Our two college age daughters visited for day trips and a dinner here and there (try the Conch Republic)... The condo was perfect for us; we will look back and smile. Just bring your favorite beach towels, sunblock and enjoy!

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our restful and rejuvenating vacation at this condo in the Gulf Shores Condominiums. While we have often vacationed in this vicinity, our experience at this condo has probably been our best. The owner's "attention to detail" is to be commended. The decor is tasteful and calming, the perfect place to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The extremely comfortable king bed and bedding were much to our liking. It is a pleasure to rent a unit where the kitchen and appliances (both large and small) have been updated and all the tools necessary for daily life are readily accessible and in working order. We also appreciated the updated bathrooms and the cleanliness of the unit upon our arrival.

Finally, the "Welcome Binder" made living at the condo hassle free. It contained all the information relevant to living in the unit as well as recommendations for eateries and emergency numbers etc.

What a great idea!

We would highly recommend this condo to anyone needing a "great" place to stay. The listing descriptions are accurate in every respect. We hope to return.

Quiet and Relaxing Vacation on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are recently retired Canadians and we were delighted to discover this condo. It is in a quiet, well maintained and clean building with many retirees who return year after year. The condo offers sensational waterfront views to both the coastal waterway on the east and the Gulf on the west. The recent updates and renovations to the unit give it a like-new feel with modern amenities and conveniences. The unlimited long-distance calling and high speed internet connections were particularly welcome allowing us to stay in touch with our family in Canada. We enjoyed our daily walks on the beach and the fabulous sunsets from the balcony in the evenings. We also enjoyed watching the dolphins, ospreys, pelicans and interesting varieties of shore birds. There are several restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance and we found a very friendly Publix for all our grocery needs within a five-minute drive. We were most impressed by the obvious care and attention which the owners devoted to their condo and the many small personal touches they used to make our stay so enjoyable. There was so much to do and see in the area that our two-month stay passed all too quickly. This condo is ideal for people who value a quiet, relaxed holiday on the Gulf Coast in Florida.
