              Year Purchased: 2007

              About: The purchase of the condo is a 'family affair'. We are a very close family and this venture enables us to spend a lot of time together.

              Why San Carlos:
              We all live within an hour's drive from Gulf Shores. This is not only great for us but also great for guests since we are jus a stone's throw away and check on the condition of the unit on a regular basis.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              San Carlos has a great exercise room and sauna located on the 3rd floor. The pool is spacious including lounge chairs. The short walk to the beach is wonderful for those with small children or those of us older folks who do not like to walk forever to get to the water. There is dining (The Sea and Suds) and entertainment (The Hangout) just a short stroll from the unit.
