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!

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.

Great Condo for Family Time

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 recently spent a week in this unit. We always enjoy cooking several of our meals, especially breakfast. The kitchen was set up with every thing we needed to prepare large breakfast and several of our dinners. Lots of large metal and glass baking dishes, with plenty of large plastic containers for storage. A complete set of cookware with skillets, and 2 drawers full of spatulas, spoons and such, even a nice set of sharp knives. We were very comfortable in the unit with plenty of room to spread out. The boys really enjoyed having the bunk room to themselves. The owners were available for questions and my deposit has already been refunded. The Lighthouse is a very nice complex and I highly recommend this unit.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your recommendation! So glad you found our penthouse kitchen supplied with all you needed for cooking big family meals. We have found all of our kid guests (and their parents) love the bunk room. It is a great space! We work hard to make your stay and the entire booking smooth so you can enjoy your vacation. You are welcome back anytime!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Lighthouse PH 4 did not disappoint! Plenty of room for our family of 11. Views were amazing, watched dolphins every morning and evening. Played board games on the balcony every night. The unit was in great condition, nice tile flooring throughout and great kitchen. Beach and pools areas were nice but crowded. The building staff did a great job of keeping the areas clean and straightened the lounge chairs several times a day. The beach chairs and umbrellas were a nice extra (chairs beginning to rust). We had plenty of beach towels and bath towels to go around and the washer/dryer was a plus. Traffic in GS in the evening was pretty bad, but expected with so many people in a small town.

Gail was awesome to work with, always answered any question quickly!

Our EZ Up tent was stolen out of the tent storage area near the pool, store your items at your own risk.

We had a great time and plan on returning in the near future!

Owner's Response: Enjoying those spectacular views from the penthouse is what it is all about! Glad you were able to spent plenty of time on the balcony. We do our best to keep the condo supplied with beach and pool items. And yes, the chairs begin to rust by the end of a long, busy summer. We are always checking and replacing items, as needed. Very sorry to hear you had an issue with someone taking your tent from the pool area. I have never heard that issue before. But glad to know the staff does a great job of taking care of the building during the peak season. You are welcome back anytime.

Georgetown, Texas

Absolutely the best!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in GS for 30 years and have stayed in many places from hotels to 6 bedroom houses. For the last 7 years, we have booked with Gail every springbreak and other times throughout the year for a total of 11 times. If you want spotless units that are well equipped with anything you could ever need she is your go to person! We have stayed in many of her units and none will disappoint. This was our first stay in her penthouse and we were amazed from the time we opened the door. The size, furnishings,and of course the view can not be beat! Gail takes the pain and stress out of vacation planning. We will stay with her for many years to come! Thanks Gail for helping us make memories again this year!

Owner's Response: I cant believe you have stayed with us 11 times! I am so happy you were surprised your mom with the penthouse this time! We so greatly appreciate you choosing one of condos once again. We do try our best to provide all of our guests with a clean, well-maintained vacation home. And I agree the size and views from this condo can't be beat! See you next time!
