Want the Best?

"COASTAL CHARM" at Seacrest is the BEST!!!

Welcome to "COASTAL CHARM"...our 'GULF FRONT' condo located at Seacrest Condominiums in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Seacrest is located in the heart of Gulf Shores, just minutes away from Orange Beach, Alabama and Perdido Key, Florida.

Gulf Shores is not overly populated, yet has everything you could desire. There are ten exceptional golf courses in the area. You can enjoy excellent offshore and inshore fishing, great restaurants, and fantastic shopping at our 120-store outlet mall and local upscale gift shops and boutiques. There are amusement parks, waterparks, and a ton of other activities the whole family can enjoy. The choice is yours!

This is probably the most luxurious and best value priced one-bedroom gulf front condo you can find in the area. Half of our business is repeat or referral, we have been renting our home out since July 2003. We keep our rates low and as local residents, we see to it that our condo is in great condition at all times. We've included many extras rarely found in beach rental condos to make our condo special and enjoyable for our guests.We have a library of guidebooks and area information in the condo for you to use. No expense is spared for your well deserved vacation.

Our professionally decorated condo is perfect for couples or a small family.The layout is great for kids. There is a bunk area in the hallway (kids love the bunks!) that can be totally shut off from the rest of the unit. There is a pocket door between the bunk area and living area. A private bedroom with a queen bed, is located off the hallway. Why pay for a two bedroom condo, when all you really want is a place where you can put the kids to bed and close a door? The unit will sleep up to four comfortably. Reserve your week early so you don't miss out on staying in this popular condo. COME FALL IN LOVE WITH GULF SHORES, AND COASTAL CHARM!!!!

About Jack and Linda

We are local residents and love it here on the Alabama gulf coast. Jack is a local real estate agent here at the beach and he would be happy to help you own a piece of paradise too! Linda is in the antiques/new home décor business, so don't worry, the condo is always kept updated.

Jack and Linda purchased this condo in 2003

Why Jack and Linda chose Alabama Gulf Coast

Perched on the eight floor, Seacrest #803 is in the perfect spot to view all the action at the pool and the beach. Sunrises cast gentle lighting across the sugar white beaches and sunsets are viewed with delight from your private balcony. Open up the glass door to your living room and allow your senses to be awakened by the gulf breeze.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sikes Family,

This was our first visit to Gulf Shores and we LOVED it!!! Thank you for sharing your condo with my husband and I. I left the place looking like it was when I arrived. I treated it as my own home and it felt like it was home! You had this place stocked with everything we needed. I left a book that is to be released this Fall :Best of Me"...Please enjoy it!

Beautiful, Comfortable, Did not want to Leave

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo with a private bedroom.

Balcony with a view, bring a camera and zoom.

Sunrises, sunsets, a beach and dolphins.

Many restaurants for you to drop-in.

Relaxing waves and white inviting sand.

Makes you not want to go back to real land.

This place is wonderful, the balcony swing is great. The bedroom was comfortable. We did not utilize the 2 bunk beds in the hallway, but they looked good. Fully stocked kitchen but the close restaurants makes it too easy to eat out everyday. We loved Mikey's and Shipp's Grill. There is a fresh fish market about a 3 minute walk from the condo. The washer/dryer in the unit was nice. The swimming pool and hot tub were great. This time of year was not crowded in the town and there was no traffic. Hiking available at Bon Secour nearby (bring water).

Thanks for sharing your unit. We will be back (didn't want to leave!)

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation my husband and I had. It was a relaxing time for both of us. Everything you need is so close, with lots of choices for restaurants, walking, and shopping. One of our very favorite things was sitting on the gliding swing on the balcony and listening to the waves. It put my husband to sleep for a nap several times! We ate our breakfast on the balcony and that was so nice. We walked on the beach and watched the sun rise every morning. We are spoiled and will definitely go back again!

As seen on photos!

  • 5 of 5

How many times have you booked something online because it looks amazing in the photos, and when you get there the place looks nothing like what you expected? Well, not this place. Everything you see on the photos here, it is exactly what you will see in person. This condo was perfect for me and my family (hubby and 7 months baby). You can see that Linda and Jack are very careful about all the details to make sure that everyone feels welcome at their place. We had a great experience and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

My happy place

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week July 23-30, 2016. Best equipped condo I've ever rented...didn't have to go buy anything to use, which I usually have to do. Location is great. Enjoyed sitting on the swing on the balcony and just being content! Only inconvenience was the limited parking on site and not having a visitor parking pass for daughter's family to use when they came to visit. Other than that LOVED IT! My husband especially loved finding Island Ice Cream across the road!! Not exactly a good thing! lol He loved the turtle sundae a little too much!

Pleased With Overall Experience

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent Thanksgiving week 2015 in this condo. Just the two of us! We were pleased with the over-all experience. What we appreciated most was the location. It was convenient to anything you wanted to do, yet isolated from the busy activity of Orange Beach. I can't think of anything the owners have left out as far as something you may need while you are there. Though we didn't use hardly anything, it was there if we wanted to. Oh, we did have to go to Walmart and buy soap and shampoo! We left ours at home and there was none in the condo. No biggie - not sure I would want to use someone else's soap anyway, right?!? I loved spending time on the deck. The views were spectacular, and the sound of the ocean was awesome! Now, my husband has always told me he is afraid of heights, but I didn't realize just how much until watching him go out on the deck. He was very careful not to get too close to the rail :-) He suggested maybe next time that we try out the 2nd or 3rd floor, instead of the 8th! LOL! The book that has all the menus in it is awesome, and there are some handwritten notes on some of the menus of 'favorites'. Let me just go ahead and tell you, when the Sikes family says the food is good, the food is good! You absolutely must go to Cobalt's while you are there! And you can't pass up the fish tacos at Lulu's! There is a small journal in the condo for you to write in, which is a nice personal touch. I enjoyed reading the entries of those who came before us. Something you should know, just in case it matters to you, the cable box is not HD, so there is no HD TV viewing. It was fine with us, but just something I noticed. And the cushions on the swing need to be cleaned or replaced. We just moved them out of the way and still enjoyed the swing! There are also beach chairs and umbrellas in the condo if you want to spend the day on the beach. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and would definitely recommend this condo to others, which is basically what I'm doing right now! Just go!

My husband stayed at this unit for a week and we were very pleased. Unit very clean and decorated really nice. The main reason for selecting this unit was because of the swing on the deck. I loved drinking my coffee every morning and eating lunch while sitting on the swing. One early evening I was lying on the swing reading and because it was so comfortable and late in the day and was quiet, I fell asleep. So restful. The beach area is great and maintenance personnel keep the pool area very clean and comfortable. We will stay here again.
