Owner's Response: Dear Jay, I am extremely disappointed in your review. As you can see, I have 73 perfect reviews. We work very had to please our guests, and to be quite honest, we have been and continue to be very successful. The bedding issue you had is puzzling. All bedding is upscale and relatively new. Much better quality than you generally would find in a rental unit. We did replace the sofa, chair, and kitchen table after your visit. (Prior to this review) Although, all of these pieces were less than 5 years old) We certainly hope that you will find your future rentals to be of your satisfaction. Thank you again for your business.

  • 5 of 5

We were in Paradise!!! This condo is convenient, clean, roomy, beautifully decorated, and fully stocked with everything you could ever want. Wonderful to have a bathroom with each bedroom. So easy to walk to the beach or spend a day at the pool. This is the most relaxing vacation I have ever had in my life!!!!! We can't wait to return!!!

Fun Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great location...had an awesome view of the fireworks show from our balcony, played Frisbee and volleyball on the beach and walked to local restaurants for dinner. Great condo...plenty of room for 6 of us to watch TV together, dine in and have a comfy bed to sleep in. Great family vacation...boys enjoyed playing golf while the girls hung out at the beach and soaked in some sun and fun! Would definitely recommend this condo and look forward to coming back to visit soon.

Luxurious Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

As we entered the condo the first time, the first thing we noticed was the cleanliness. Secondly, the beautiful beach-inspired decor immediately provided a feeling of calming relaxation. This condo is not only beautifully decorated throughout, but also includes a thoroughly stocked kitchen for cooking needs. Within a couple of hours of checking in, I received a text message from the owner checking to see if there were any questions or problems. Some of the hot spots were within walking distance and we enjoyed the freedom of not driving everywhere. Beach access is very close; the pool was very nice and the crew cleaned the area several times a day. The balcony was one of our favorite spots. The furniture was comfortable and we spent hours watching the sunrise/sunset, beach activity, and even saw dolphins about four feet from the beach one morning. The balcony was in the shade during the day too. There are two charcoal grills on the property and thankfully, we did not have to wait for our turn. Our second trip to Gulf Shores was wonderful in every way--condo, weather, restaurants, The Track, golf, etc. If you chose this condo, you won't be disappointed. My family would definitely consider staying in this condo again!
