About Terri El-Farkh

We love to travel and enjoy being in nature with our family.

Terri El-Farkh purchased this condo in 2011

Why Terri El-Farkh chose Alabama Gulf Coast

I grew up with a family home in Gulf Shores but find the Fort Morgan area so much more peaceful. Our condo is far from the street, so our children are safe and it is quiet. There are wildlife refuge areas and uncrowded beaches, walking and biking trails, and water on both sides- the calm bay for sailing, kayaking, and fishing, and the gulf for swimming and dolphin spotting. This resort has so many amenities, we never get bored. If we do, Gulf Shores has a lot to offer with restaurants, shopping, zoo, water slides, putt putt, etc. These are some of the reasons we chose our 2nd home here and not Florida.

What makes this condo unique

We love watching the rabbits at dusk and the moon rise over the water. There are several small lakes with alligators, turtles, herons, and waterlilies. We have 7 pools so it it's never crowded. The courtyard area is a great place for hide and seek and volleyball. There are 27 miles of paved bike trails as well as wooded walking trails We see dolphins jumping everyday around 5 or 6 o'clock and the sunrise and sunset are spectacular!

Clean, cozy, and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I took out 10 and 8 year old here. The room was clean and had all we needed. The beach was beautiful! We had a fantastic time. The only reason I gave it four stars was that there was only one heated outdoor pool, and because the other pools were freezing, we only used that one the whole time. There was a heated indoor pool that we also used in the evenings. We also didn't realize the balcony overlooked more of a parking lot than the beach, so we were a bit disappointed in that. There is a restaurant on the property, but it's more of a small cafe and didn't seem to be opened. We asked others about the restaurant, and they said they didn't know anything about it and never ate there. We ended up not eating there either. Overall though, it was fantastic and I highly recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed our condo. In addition to the outdoor heated pool there are 2 outdoor hot tubs, 1 indoor hot tub and an indoor heated pool as well. The outdoor temp was in the 70's and 80's which is phenomenal in March but the other pools don't get warmer until May. There are also 2 restaurants and a Cafe on the property open for Breakfast and lunch. I am sorry you didn't find them. There are 24 photos of our unit and resort including the balcony and view on this listing.

Excellent accommodations!

Everything was perfect. The condominium was exceptionally clean and well organized. We particularly enjoyed the proximity to the ocean and the variety of activities available to us. It was a perfect place for our family get away!

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place to stay, we encountered a day of rain, but there was plenty to do in the condo. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Beds were comfy, everything worked like it should, pools were very nice, and being a few steps from everything was amazing. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks.

Great place for a beach visit!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Everything thing u could possibly need provided! Water toys, beach chairs, grill tools, coffee pot. The 20 min drive into town is a blessing and a curse. We will be back!
