Ava's first vacation
Ava's first vacation
My wife, daughter, son-in-law ,grand daughter (Ava, 8 mo.) and I had a great vacation in Gulf Shores last week. It was my wife and my first full week with our 8 month old grand-daughter. Our grand-daughter loved every minute of it. This was our first but not last vacation at an A-1 condo. The Higdon's are great people to do business with. The unit is all that you could ask for.

Grandkids wanted to stay an extra day...
Grandkids wanted to stay an extra day...
My wife and I, her oldest son and his family stayed in March and really enjoyed our week. We have stayed here before and the place was really nice. The building staff are friendly and helpful. It is the first time we had to contact Dan and Rebecca during a stay here, because of a noisy fire alarm, but they were very helpful and we were able to resolve things quickly. The grandkids even wanted to stay an extra day (which we couldn't do because the unit was already booked after us). We would have opted for another week :) The location of this unit is very convenient (high enough for a great view but close enough to make getting to the beach a breeze). The place is tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. And the indoor pool gives the kids an option when the weather isn't cooperating. All in all this is a perfect place for us, and we hope to use it lot more, We have stayed a number of times before at units that Dan and Rebecca own, and we have enjoyed working with them. They are very accommodating and very easy to work with.

crystal shores west room 101. it is a corner condo has a wrap around balcony so you can see the bay and the ocean. the pool is just below... the condo is big and roomy with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. we could park our car i floor down , which is just a stairway down. the trash bin room is outside in the hall, that comes in handy. we saw the dolphins every morning taking their morning swim...great sunsets and sunrises. the condo is very nice with good furniture, and pictures, and the kitchen is well suplied. all 7 of us had plenty of room...and every bedroom has a tv too as well as in the living room. check it out... its worth taking the time.

This is a wonderful condo with an excellent view of the Gulf. All complex amenities were great with an easy access to the beach and located close to all tourist sites. We will definitely be returning in the near future.

The condo was beautiful decorated, well furnished, and very comfortable. The Crystal Shores West facility was excellent. The pool and beach were nice. The garage parking was a great feature as it rained one day during our stay. Jeanie L. Huntsville, AL

This is our 2nd stay at CSW 101 and the kids are already requesting to rent this unit again next year. It is our little corner of paradise, with the perfect location overlooking the beach and the great pool area. We love to watch the dolphins from the oversize balcony. Dan and Rebecca are so great to work with, to prove it we have referred 3 other friends to rent from them and they have all had great experiences. Can't wait to get back.

We really enjoyed our stay in Gulf Shores. The accomodations were great and we were very fortunate to see the dolphins swim by one morning. If you are planning a trip to Gulf Shores and looking for a really nice place to stay, I highly recommend this unit.

Our family stayed in Crystal Shores West 101. We loved it. The view was beautiful and the condo was beautiful. Really liked the way the condo was laid out. Lots of room for everyone. The Higdons were very nice to work with on the rental. I would recommend it highly.
