Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We live just north of Nashville, TN and find Gulf Shores, AL the perfect place to vacation. It is a 7 1/2 drive and all the sun, sand & good food you could want. Our grandchildren love it!!!

Why the Owner Chose San Carlos:
This area is not as busy as most beach areas. For many years we vacationed further East and as they became busier we kept moving West. Gulf Shores has a small town feel but has all the amenities you could want. Outlet shopping is only 10 miles away in Foley. Fishing charters are about 3 or 4 miles away in Orange Beach. Mobile, AL has many attractions just a short drive away such as botanical garden, USS Alabama, as well as many others, and you can take the ferry from Gulf Shores to Mobile which is an experience some people have not had the opportunity to enjoy. Fort Morgan should also be on the agenda when in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Sitting on balcony and looking at ocean, sand, sunrises and sunsets. Enjoying all the delicious seafood at all the good restaurants in the area.
