Perfect set up for multi-families with kids

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! The layout worked well with our group of 6 adults and 8 kids. Kids LOVED the bunk room.

Fully equipped with everything we needed to fix breakfasts and lunches. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Awesome views from the decks. Plenty of parking and room to keep outdoor gear under cover without storing it inside the unit.

There were people staying in the other 3 units so we were concerned about the pool being crowded but that was never an issue. Quick access to the beach for those that wanted and not too crowded there either.

We were there the week Tropical Storm Cindy rolled through and the house felt solid as a rock.

We had a blast and can't wait to go back!

Beautiful!!! Plenty of room for everyone and very clean.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation and loved the property!

Pros: Very big and lots of room for everyone to hang out, beach is close, pool was wonderful, fresh water for washing off sand was so nice, we loved having the ice machine, very clean, the kids loved the bunk room and all being able to sleep together. Overall, it was amazing and we can't wait to come back!

Cons: dryer took forever to dry clothes (we often had to restart 2-3 times), some of the supplies in the kitchen were cutting board, only one measuring cup, missing parts in the blender so we couldn't use it. It would have been nice to have a few more seems we were washing a lot and then it took the whole day to dry them.

We enjoyed everything and look forward to coming back soon!!!

Spacious, beautiful condo

  • 4 of 5

Our overall experience was great. When we did need something the office manager responded quickly and took care of our needs/requests. The property is in a central location and not far from restaurants, shopping, and attractions.

This was our first time to Orange Beach/Gulf Shores, AL. Not only is the beach awesome, but so was Summer Salt East #3. It felt brand new and was huge. Our families totaled 9 people, 4 adults and 5 kids, and we had plenty of room. All the rooms were big and comfortable. It was well furnished and had everything we needed, including an ice maker. The pool area was shared, but we did not mind that at all. It was large enough for all the families staying in the complex. It is a duplex, but we did not hear our neighbors at all and they could not hear us either. Our access to the beach was typical in the area and it felt like it was private. We always had a great spot on the beach. If we decided to vacation back in the area, we will definitely book in this complex.

Located on the sugar white sands of Alabama's Gulf Coast! The area offers many fun activities including fishing, the gulf, bays & back waters, boating, walking & biking trails from Orange Beach all the way to historic Fort Morgan, birdwatching at the Bon Secour Wildilfe Refuge, watching the Blue Angels practice over the Gulf or at NAS Pensacola, or just lazing the afternoon in the sun. The area has many events like, The Hang Out Beach Music Festival, State Park Zip Lining, Flora Bama Mullet Toss, many Golf Courses, Deep Sea and Back Bay Fishing, Dolphin Cruises, Para Sailing, Seafood Dining and much more. Shopping at the Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley is always an option for a rainy afternoon or if you want something closer, visiting the fabulous shops at The Wharf in Orange Beach for some shopping, dining & entertainment all in one convenient location. There are lots of things for the family to do, like visit the water park at Waterville, or the arcades and mini golf locations, The options for dining are endless, from seafood shacks to fine dining- we have it all! Nightlife is also varied but don't forget to stop by the world famous Flora-Bama Lounge on the Alabama-Florida state line anytime. They even offer church services every Sunday.
