About Gail

We love to travel, and the beautiful beaches and friendly people of Gulf Shores keep us coming back year-after-year!

Gail purchased this condo in 2012

Why Gail chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We chose to buy here because of the great location, amenities and spectacular Gulf-front views. We own vrbo #233279, #257226 & #510283 in the same building, so you know we love The Lighthouse complex!

What makes this condo unique

We chose the penthouse because of the spectacular, panoramic views from the enormous wrap-around balcony and the # of people it can accommodate-perfect for large or multiple families!

Great kitchen and open area - great view of beach and gulf from balcony!

  • 5 of 5

Definitely would consider returning to this condo. Sleeps adults and kids very comfortably. A bathroom for every bedroom was a huge benefit. Providing beach towels and beach equipment / toys was an added bonus! Thanks for thinking of everything.

View from the top...

  • 5 of 5

My family of 12 stayed at PH #4 for and during 2017 Memorial Day / week and could not have stayed anywhere nicer or more convenient to everything that Gulf Shores / Orange Beach has to offer! Four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a separate area with four bunk beds provided everyone a place to rest each day after fun in the sun. The accommodations were perfect to fix / eat breakfast and lunch in the condo and venture out to try different non-chain seafood and BBQ each night. PH #4 has a netflix account to watch movies when it rained and a great balcony to view the gulf / people watch any other time. The Lighthouse is right on the beach; you pass two large outdoor pools as you make your way to boogie boarding and building sand castles. My uncle and his family has stayed here during previous vacations and recommended the Lighthouse and PH #4 to us, and we are highly recommending the Lighthouse and PH #4 to everyone else.

The owner, Gail, has been very informative and responsive to questions before booking and during our stay. We have stayed at other VRBO properties and have never worked with an owner as great as Gail has been! Thanks again Gail!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review and high recommendation of our penthouse. We strive to make sure all of our guests have a wonderful stay. The spaciousness of the condo does allow large groups like yours the opportunity spread out when needed, and yet be together to take in the spectacular, panoramic views of the beach and Gulf. The penthouse does have 4 bedrooms and bathrooms, and the bunkroom is actually a large room, just no closet, so we can't call it a bedroom. The convenience of the beach-front Lighthouse is hard to beat! Glad you all were able to enjoy some of the local restaurants. You are welcome back any time.

Spring Break 2017!

Owner's Response: Amazing views from the enormous wrap-around balcony are one of the highlights of our west corner penthouse! We agree that the spaciousness of the condo allows for large families/groups to be close, but not too close. :) It was a pleasure working with you, and we look forward to your return!

What a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is "impressive". The wife and I took our oldest son and his family down to the beach for the week and watch the Blue Angels fly. We usually stayed at a house during other stays but couldn't get in contact with the owner so I searched for another place. We found this condo and I am sure glad we did. The penthouse at the Lighthouse. It is right on the beach and has a beautiful view of the gulf. Location is ideal for anything you want to do. Everything you need is in the condo. Living/dining rooms and kitchen are all right there and well laid out and equipped. Bedrooms are spacious and well decorated. You won't go wrong with this condo or one of the other two the owners own. Speaking of the owners. Gail is fantastic. I am a retired Army Officer and her husband is a retired Naval Officer so we connected from the beginning. Gail was very easy to work with and responds to emails usually within an hour or less. Rental deposit was returned within a week of departure. We enjoyed our stay and will stay there again.

Owner's Response: So glad you all found us, too! Using the word, "impressive" to describe our penthouse, let's us know we, and the people who work with us are continuing to do the best we can to make sure our guests have a comfortable, enjoyable stay. Yes, The Lighthouse is a great location, in that it is close to all Gulf Shores has to offer. It was a pleasure working with you, and we look forward to your return soon.

Fabulous Week on the Gulf :)

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for me and my family. What started out to be MY week to experience Shrimp Fest and visit with family turned into bringing my 3 daughters, 4 grandchildren, my sister and 2 of my daughter's friends (all girls week away). The condo is very open and roomy. Loved the 2 front bedrooms with sliding doors onto the large wrap around balcony. Had the wonderful option to fall asleep at night with the sliding door slightly open to listen to the waves crashing onto the beach. The views from the 19th floor penthouse were also amazing. Having 4 bedrooms with their own bathrooms was perfect for all and the bunk room worked out great for the kiddos. My one daughter who has the 2 smallest (16 mo and 3) said she felt very comfortable in this condo and didn't have to worry about the kids primarily because there were no stairs to worry about. The large kitchen was perfect and stocked very nicely with just about anything you needed. The great supply of beach towels was nice to have as well as the beach supplies (i.e. chairs, umbrella, toys, etc.). Having the maximum capacity washer/dryer came in very handy. We loved our stay and would definitely consider this property again in the future. Gail was wonderful to work with. Anytime I had a question, she replied quickly. Upon check in, we had a couple of questions and she answered her phone and responded immediately. Thank you Gail. Gulf Shores is our home away from home and we had a fabulous vacation.

Owner's Response: Perfect for you and your family...words we love to hear! Having the two Gulf-front bedrooms with direct access to the enormous balcony, bedrooms w/attached baths and the bonus of a bunk room is definitely nice for large families. We like to provide everything we can think of and reply promptly to your questions to make your vacation easy and comfortable. Hope you were able to enjoy the ShrimpFest! We certainly hope you will stay with us again in the near future.
