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!

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!

Great family vacation spot!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip & the accommodations were great. Balcony view of the largest swimming pool I've ever seen, with the beach right over the sand dunes from the pool. There was everything we needed in the condo for our meals & the two bedrooms were great. The condo is on the inside of the building, making our nights very quite for sleeping. This unit has everything you'd want, including bikes, tennis rackets, beach chairs, etc. We had six, but it could have slept eight. This is one place I'll request for next time.
