This was our second time at Gulf Shores Escape and it will not be our last. The condo is beautiful and accommodating. The private elevator makes for a convenient trip to the beach. The restaurants were all amazing. We met John and Michelle, two very nice people. We are looking forward to our next trip.

Great condo with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the great place to stay during our spring break. This unit is well maintained, organized, clean, and comfortable. It had everything we could ever want while staying somewhere for a week. The views were spectacular and the condo was within walking distance to many restaurants. We enjoyed the pool, fitness room, and private elevator. John was super easy to work with and went above and beyond to make our stay inviting. We would love to return for another vacation!

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The rents for this unit were slightly higher than the units in the adjacent building but it is completely worth the few extra dollars. My stay included my wife and four children. They never know where we are staying until we arrive. They were all blown away by this unit. Everything you need is at this property. I think we were the only people in the building the week we stayed. We never bumped into another person in the elevator all week. The sunrises from the balcony are outstanding. Parking is very easy. We had the parking spot closest to elevator all week and we never had to search for a parking spot. The location is convenient to the pier and Gulf State Park and also to The Hangout Bar. Both are within walking distance. The pool and hot tub were clean and never overcrowded. After a weeks vacation I am typically ready to get back home and so are my kids. When we were leaving our whole family agreed we could have easily stayed another week if it had been a possibility. You won't be disappointed with this condo!

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at this condo the past two months. It is very spacious and beautifully decorated. The balcony is huge with a great view, especially the sunrises and the sunsets! The private elevator is definitely a plus. The location was perfect.

Wonderful Condo right in front of the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My brother's family flew in from cold NJ and we brought them to this beautiful condo in Gulf Shores. It was the perfect mini vacation anyone could ask for in December! John was very accomodating and helpful. Ask for any food/seafood store suggestions. Checkin/checkout was very smooth. The weather was wonderful, the beaches just so clean and quiet, and the condo........just beautiful! It was very well kept, spacious, and the kitchen had everything to make gourmet food (my brother is a gourmet cook). The location cannot be beat. Sea n suds was closed but it is a great restuarant AND its right there below. Grocery stores, restuarants, The Hangout all just a few mins drive. The building is very safe, our floor has only our apartment. Used the hot tub. Loved the small touches the owners have put in: board games, good quality bath products, plenty of towels. The balcony is the entire length of the condo, we woke up early to watch the sunrise and saw the sunset too! Great to watch the children on the beach while hanging out on the balcony.

We loved every minute we spent in the condo and I'm sure y'all will too!
