Great location but needs some attention

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in the perfect location. Great beach and close to a lot of great restaurants. The condo is small but perfect for our family of four. The bunk room is tiny but the kids loved it's cozy feel. Having a full second bath was handy. The owner called us in advance and gave us some tips for the area which I thought was very kind.

On the downside, the condo was not properly cleaned before we arrived. Sticky refrigerator, old coffee grounds in coffee maker, dirty dishes in dishwasher, crumbs still on table on patio. We got over it but the last thing you want to do is clean when you are on vacation.

The furnishings and mattresses are on the older side and should be considered to be replaced in the future.

Best on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at the Lighthouse and it was FANTASTIC! The location couldn't be any better. Short walk to all the hot spots. Rod was very accommodating and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this condo, and plan to return!

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the Lighthouse, and Rod's condo was great! Plenty of room, comfortable mattress, stocked kitchen and welcoming décor. We really liked the lounge chair on the balcony (not to mention the VIEW!) and the high-quality window treatments. With all the comforts of home on the beautiful beach, this condo was perfect for our family. Rod makes the reservation process so easy, and I really appreciated that he checked in on us the day of our arrival. And the keyless entry is a HUGE convenience! Thank Rod and Kathy for sharing your place with us!

Awesome place right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and we will definitely go back and stay at this same place! The condo was steps away from a great beach. It was very comfortable and roomy for the 5 of us and very modern and clean. The balcony has a great view of the beach and water and we did see some dolphins! It is located within walking distance to some great places to eat, shop, and even buy a few necessities at a reasonable price. Mr. Fitts was a joy to work with and provided some very helpful tips on his beach days website and blogs. Thank you for an awesome vacation with my family!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year for our family to take a "girls only" trip. We love Gulf Shores. It is so family oriented. Crystal Shores is located right on the beach and just a few feet from the gorgeous white sand, and is within walking distance to several restaurants and souvenir shops. Zoo, amusement park, water park, mini golf and other attractions are just a short drive and are highly recommended. (We especially loved the "bumper boats" at the amusement park). The condo is beautiful and by far the prettiest that we have stayed in thus far. The view from the 10th floor is absolutely AMAZING!!!!! Rod was the most pleasant man to work with. Great vacation!!! Hope to be back next year.
