Gulf Shores 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 the low density Gulf House condominium complex, Top of the Gulf is right on the water. Imagine, you have two balconies, two livings rooms, two kitchens, and two washers & dryers. The Top of the Gulf is the perfect getaway 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 kitchens and two dining areas with plenty of seating for everyone! There are 2 masters (one with a king and one with a queen) and private baths, 2 bedrooms with queen-size 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.

Reviewer Comments:

This is our second year staying at The "Top of the Gulf " for our Girls weekend during the Shrimp Festival. All the Girls love these condos and truly feel like they are our home away from home. As always the accommodations are excellent they even upgraded a few things since last year, very nice. With both rooms being beach front, the excellent view from the balcony of the beach to the convenience of the proximity of the Festival, to the overall excellent accommodations makes this Vacation rental definitely 5 stars. Our group of 12 women will be back next year!!!

Penthouse Condos

  • 2 of 5

The location and view were great but that is all we would recommend about these units. We had 3 main issues

1. Both condos are slightly shabby and in need of another remodel. The sofas and beds were all uncomfortable. If you have back issues, stay away. These were the worst mattresses we have ever slept on.

2. The pool is too cold to enjoy. Perhaps this is due to being in the shade of buildings most of the day. It should definitely be heated!

3. The balcony bars are too far apart for safety. Two of our toddlers could slide their head and bodies between the bars. This made the balconies basically unusable to us. This is a safety issue that should be addressed building wide!!!

Other smaller issues were older mismatched appliances, dingy/rusty tubs, many tubs with no stoppers, clothes dryers that heated the middle bedroom when used (possibly due to improper venting).

Overall we would not recommend these two condos

Reviewer Comments:

My complaint is not with Relax at the Beach management company. They're phone representatives were always courteous and very helpful. However, the condition of the two units were not good. We had unit 601 and 602. 602 was in better shape, but 601 had some serious issues. One bdrm had 2 twin mattresses that were in awful shape. Neither person could sleep well because the mattresses made so much noise. The hall bathroom shower head needed replacement. The kitchen appliances were old and in poor shape. The air conditioner struggled to keep the inside temp cool. Unit 602 appliances were a bit better. Wifi in both units was awful. We paid a separate linen fee that I thought was a bit expensive. The linens and towels provided were basic at best. Pillows were thin,stained, and needed replacing. Towels were very thin as were sheets. For the additional linen fee paid, we expected more. The building has 6 floors and only one elevator. the elevator broke down almost every day. I believe the elevator repair guy was there 5 of our 7 days. The location is excellent but there are much better values in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores.

Owner's Response: These units are located on the beach and have been rented all season long. Until we receive information or concerns from guests we cannot address them. Building management was notified about the elevator and wifi not working properly.

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

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.

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.
