Overview

Alabama Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 12

Welcome to The Top of the Gulf - Gulf Shores' only 6 bedroom condo! Located on the top floor of a low density condominium right on the water, The Top of the Gulf is the perfect place to get away from it all! Imagine two balconies, two livings rooms, two kitchens, two washers and dryers and you begin to get the idea! The Top of the Gulf is the perfect getaway for your extended family or two families or anyone who needs more than the standard Gulf Shores condo.

The Top of the Gulf is actually two separate 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom condos (see Gulf House 601 / 602) that must be booked separately, but are joined by unlocking a common door connecting the two living rooms. Both living areas open onto separate balconies with rocking chairs to maximize surf watching! You'll enjoy two well equipped kitchens and two dining areas with plenty of seating for everyone! There are 2 masters (one with a Kind and one with a Queen) and private baths, 2 bedrooms with Queen sized beds that share bathrooms with two bedrooms with Twin beds. This condo is definitely double the fun! Other amenities include cable TV, wireless internet and two washer and dryers.

The Top of the Gulf is located at 511 E Beach Blvd, Unit 601 & 602, Gulf Shores, AL 36542.

THE AREA

Gulf Shores is known for its beautiful white sandy beaches, warm sunshine, excellent golf, restaurants, shopping, and family-friendly activities. Vacation properties are convenient to all Gulf Shores restaurants, shops, entertainment, and golf courses. The Tanger Outlet mall in Foley is a favorite for shoppers. Kiva Dunes and the Peninsula Golf Clubs are must play courses for the golfers in the group. Be sure to check out the the Gulf Shores Zoo, Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge and historic Fort Morgan. Or take a day trip to Dauphin Island’s Estuarium, the Pensacola Naval Air Museum, Bellingrath Gardens, or to see the Alabama. For the adventurers in your party, take a beautiful and thrilling beachflight or go fishing with Salty Dog Charters.

The place was ok. The air conditioner did not work properly. We called maintenance and he said it was as good as it gets. It was very warm at night and had a hard time sleeping. Also the rocking chair on balcony was broken in 602

Reviewer Comments:

Great location, very clean, great for a family vacation. The pool area is terrible, it's between two buildings and never gets any sun. The wi-fi is terrible. And we could never figure out how to work the Bosch stack unit washer & dryer.

THE TOP OF THE GULF...THE GOOD AND THE BAD

Reviewer Comments:

Our family rented two condos (nine nights) connected by a door where the family could flow back and forth. Parents/grand children on one side and parents/single children on the other. Location was perfect with the view of the Gulf and ease to the beach. However, we did not feel the condo was clean when we walked in and we had the following issues; 1) Our car passes were not available in the room when we got there. 2) One of the twin beds fell in when someone sat on it. 3) Daughter was stuck on the elevator for 20 minutes, then I was stuck on it with my grandson another day. 4) A burner on the stove did not work. 5) None of the tubs had a stopper. 6) Some lights were out in most rooms. 7) The internet never worked. We were told to call an 800 number. 8)In the door of a refrigerator, the shelf broke and a glass item fell and broke on the floor. 9)Shower curtain liner was molded and popcorn ceiling was falling down. 10) A dryer handle came off so we couldn't use it when needed. 11) I had to change beds at one point and noticed the pillows were stained badly! 12) No toilet paper holder in one bathroom. We called maintenance and items were fixed the next day. He was very friendly. I did have to make several calls on all these problems as they arose and felt like it took away from a good vacation experience. I have to give an average "3" rating because it was good and it was bad. In fact, it was down right embarrassing to bring my grown children to a place that we paid a lot for only for it to be dated and have the issues listed above but the location was great.

Reviewer Comments:

Dryer door in 602 broken, had to use magnet to keep door closed. Ants in 602 due to crumbs under glass on coffee table. Toilet seat loose in master bathroom in 601. Pool is in a shaded area at all times so too cold to use.

Owner's Response: Thanks for letting us know about the little issues in the condo. They have been addressed! I wish I could say that every month is perfect pool weather, but sometimes it is too chilly to swim in April. They trees are actually a wonderful asset in July! We will suggest to the condo association board that it might be nice to consider adding a heater so the pool can be enjoyed in the cooler months.

THIS CONDO IS A MARVELOUS HOME ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been staying in this unit continuously since 2008 during the winter months. We love its location in Gulf Shores and its proximity to the ocean. The unit is very close to the water and has a 180 degree gorgeous view of the gulf. The unit is decorated nicely and is extremely clean. We stay for 3 months each year and enjoy cooking most of our meals in the unit. The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances, good utensils, nice dishes and flatware. We like the 47" flat screen TV and the home stereo system. All of the furniture is well kept and the beds are extremely comfortable. We prefer this unit because it is in a condo that is not crowded and is centrally located to all the activities of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. The unit has been remodeled, updated and conveniently includes a washer and dryer. We have looked at many condos in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Fort Morgan but we love this unit and would appreciate being allowed to rent here for years to come.

GREAT Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Thursday afternoon to a GREAT Condo! The pics do not do it justice!! Everything was exactly as listed. Before we arrived I spoke with Rick and agreed to do a "Walk Through" for him prior to him coming down for the "End of season" cleaning/touchup. There was VERY little I had to tell him... Overall, this was a hidden gem. The only drawback I saw was a very cold pool, but we came to the beach for the beach and not the pool! Great times Rick and I appreciate you allowing us to stay in your Condo. We will definately be back!
