Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed your condo. It made us feel very "at home". The sunrise and sunset were beautiful from the balcony. We hope to come back next year. The kids really enjoyed the pool, hot tub and game room.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed your condo week of June 13 - 20, 2015 Everything was even better than stated in the description, clean and well maintained. Mattress in the master bedroom is the most comfortable I have ever slept on. This was our fourth trip to G.S. but our first in this condo, will not be our last, wife and I enjoyed much needed quiet time and our daughter and friend, both 14, had a great time on the beach and at the Hangout. Try Rouse's for groceries, much better than Walmart. Hope to be back for fall break in October. Condo was so good, wife and daughter didn't even go to the outlet mall! Love the Shrimp Basket for ayce shrimp. The owners were very easy to work with. It is unbelievable that you can leave your stuff on the beach all week and everything is still there at the end of the week, great place.

This rental was fabulous! Everything was very clean and the accommodations luxurious. The property was better in person than pictures can show. Additionally, there have been several decor improvements since the pics were taken. While we didn't see dolphins during our visit, the view from the balcony was awesome. Even rainy days allowed for sitting comfortably on the balcony.

The property owners, John and Terry, were awesome to work with from start of our inquiry to the end of our agreement by confirming all of checkout was complete. This was my first use of VRBO, and this great experience has me coming back already. We will definitely be contacting Terry and John for another visit to their beautiful Gulf Shores property. While we were renting for a family girls trip, the accommodations are perfect for a romantic getaway or any other small gathering.

John and Terry, thank you so much for sharing this wonderful treasure with my family and I.

Best Place on Gulf Shores!!

  • 5 of 5

Terry and John--Thank you for renting your condo to us for our late spring vacation! The condo was clean and very accommodating. We loved staying right on the beach, and the views from your balcony are awesome. We especially enjoyed seeing the dolphins on several afternoons. The bed in the master bedroom was sooooo comfortable. We made good use of the beach chairs available. Many of the restaurants were within easy walking distance. Thank you again for a great vacation and we hope to rent from you next year! Lisa and Terry
