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!!!!

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!

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!

Beach

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great week at Gulf Shores

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful relaxing week at this condo. It was in a perfect location and was clean and very well decorated. Even though I did not cook the entire week, the condo was well stocked. The view was great and we enjoyed the swing on the balcony and watched the dolphins swim by each day. Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us and will definitely keep it in mind for next year.

Our favorite

  • 5 of 5

Seacrest 803 has been our favorite family vacation spot for the past 3 years. It is perfect and has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The condo is clean and well stocked. The view is amazing! It is within close proximity to great restaurants, as well as shopping. The pool is cleaned daily, and it's so nice to see security on staff. The bunks are perfect for kids. Gulf Shores is a perfect getaway for us, as it is far less crowded than most beaches, yet still has plenty to do. We look forward fo our week here every year!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and it was absolutely perfect! We were wanting to take one last beach trip as a family of three before our little girl arrives at the beginning of 2016. Everything was clean, comfortable and convenient. When you read that the condo is fully stocked… it truly is fully stocked. There were chairs, umbrellas, floats and even beach toys provided for us. The walk to the beach was short and easy. (That is saying a lot coming from a pregnant lady hauling a 4 year old!!) The weather was great. The waves were enough to play in but not strong enough to knock our son off his feet. We spent quite a bit of time at the pool, especially after dinner, and it was great. Super clean, safe (gates and fences) and having the opportunity to please my son as well as still hear and see the ocean while in the pool with him was fantastic. Especially since we both got what we wanted! Being able to see the ocean every waking moment while in the condo was amazing. We ate breakfast and lunch out on the balcony and spent our evenings out and about in Gulf Shores. There was a binder FILLED with brochures and menus for us to browse through. We also talked with Linda during our stay to get some ideas on good restaurants and she was so helpful! Honestly, I have nothing bad to say about the condo, the complex or even Gulf Shores. We will definitely be back.

I will add that the most distressing for me and my husband was drinking out of the plastic Auburn cups that were provided. HAHA. Although we DID find a great Tervis store at The Wharf and we bought two great big fat Tennessee insulated tumblers! GO VOLS!

Jack and Linda, THANK YOU SO MUCH for the great vacation. It truly was fantastic!!

Illinois Family of Four

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely adored watching the dolphins every single day! Having the beach chairs and umbrellas right there at the condo was so helpful and saved us a bunch of money (instead of renting them for the week). Bunks were great for our teenage daughters. Just a few steps from the sand. AMAZING!!
