Overview

Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps up to 6

Crystal Shores 1006 is a very attractive 1035 Sq. Ft. Gulf Front condo with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and a fold-out couch that sleeps a maximum of 6.

This attractive Gulf-front condominium will leave no doubt that you are on vacation with its breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico waters! This unit has all the comforts of home: a fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, a breakfast bar, coffee maker, toaster, dishwasher, microwave, blender and much more. A full size dining area. Each bedroom and the living area include televisions and DVD players. A CD stereo system set to accommodate your Ipod and, of course, free WiFi is available throughout the unit.

It's all about the location and Crystal Shores has it all. Not only does Crystal Shores offer dazzling views of the Gulf but is also within easy walking distance of many restaurants, stores and attractions located in central Gulf Shores.

This 14-story condominium resort also features a heated indoor swim thru pool to the outdoor pool, a hot tub, a fully-equipped fitness room, a game room, dry/steam sauna, as well as outside showers and a boardwalk to the Gulf. There is also some covered parking and two very quick elevators as well as carts to make unloading and loading a breeze.

Our unit only rents Saturday to Saturday which allows us to have one of the best house keepers on the beach. Check in time is 4PM and check out time is 10AM. There is no smoking in out unit and Crystal Shores has a no pet policy for guests. Our unit is NOT ADA compliant and we have 25 years or older policy as to the legal person onsite in the party and responsible for our unit.

We use VRBO for only for advertising but have our own website listing terms and conditions as well as pricing for a given week so the prices here are approximate and my deviate by a very small amount but all pricing on our website is accurate to the penny. The calendars are synchronized so if this calendar shows open or booked it is correct as we do not hold any dates without a paid deposit.

We do offer discount coupons for first time guests for rentals inside of 3 weeks prior to arrival date so inquire if that criteria applies to you.

Thanks again for considering our unit!

Rod & Kathleen

About Rod Fitts - 2016

Hi, my name Rod Fitts and my wife is Kathleen. Our journey in the vacation rental business started in 2005 when we purchased Crystal Shores #1006 and Lighthouse #702 in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

In 2011 we launched "Gulfshoresbeachdays" as a place is to advertise our vacation rentals and to give our guests advice they could use to increase the quality of their stay.

I invite you to visit Gulfshoresbeachdays on the web to place a reservation, get information about restaurants, attractions and to read my blog with advice on everything from how to save money in Gulf Shores to what to do on rainy days.

Gulf Shores Beach Days is also an official member of AVROA, an industry trade association dedicated to preserving the personal relationship between owner and guest. We are very excited about this and each of our properties are AVROA certified which assures you that Kathleen and I are the real owners and that our properties are being run legitimately.

Thanks for your interest!

Rod & Kathleen Fitts

Why Rod Fitts - 2016 chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We ended up in Gulf Shores because in Gulf Shores we can relax on a world class beach without the rest of the world being there. And, there is another reason. Gulf Shores is a family oriented community. A place where my kids and their kids can play on the beach without any distractions. In my opinion, Gulf Shores is Alabama's best kept secret

What makes this condo unique

Newer property with good location on West Beach Blvd with moderate density so fewer guest to share the beach with.

The perfect beach rental! You can't beat the location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at condo 1006. Rod (the condo owner) was very good at communicating with us before and during the trip to make sure everything went smoothly and was always available for questions about the property and area. We would highly recommend this rental! We will definitely rent this condo again if we come back to Gulf Shores!

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of February here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo is lovely and well equipped. The property as a whole is perfectly maintained. It's about a mile from restaurants and shops - a comfortable walk either along the beach or the road which has a bicycle lane that separates walkers from the traffic. The owner is friendly and very helpful! Highly recommend a stay here.

Great condo and location

  • 5 of 5

Just loved our stay! The listing description and pictures were completely accurate. The property was clean and well-maintained; and very welcoming. The location, size, comfort, and all the ammenities for the price is outstanding. The owner, Rod, was professional and friendly; calling on the day of check-in to welcome and ensure that everything was okay was a really nice touch. The ability to pay on line and all instructions received ahead of time is a great feature as well as no need to drop or pick up key is a bonus. Would highly recommend this condo!

Great Location, Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo from 6/9/12 - 6/16/12 and had a fantastic time. We got to the beach and it rained for two days. The condo was large enough for both of our small children to run around and pass the time until the rain stopped. The beach location is perfect and although the pool is small, it was never crowded. We had a great time and will return again. Thanks Rod and Kath for sharing this great place with us.

WOW!!! Great Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent an amazing week here (4/14/12 - 4/21/12). The condo is so completely furnished that we found there was nothing that we needed that wasn't there. We had such an awesome time sitting on the balcony with our coffee every morning and watching the beach and water from the 10th floor. We saw dolphins playing in the water, and schools of devil rays swimming in the surf. The access to the beach was one of my favorite things as I am a beach bum. I was able to carry everything I needed to enjoy my day on the beach without requiring help from my husband. Just a few steps off the boardwalk and you are there. We will definitely be repeat guest....can't wait to come again. Hoping to plan an all girls trip!!!!

Great view, great condo, great time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband stayed for the week (our spring break) and had an amazing time. Watching the beach from the 10th floor every morning while drinking coffee was one of the highlights of the trip. The condo was wonderful...everything needed was there. Access to the beach was awesome and the pools although small were pleasant as well. We will definitely be repeat guests.
