Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet Club condo description

Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet on quiet West Beach Boulevard has everything for a family vacation or a fun getaway for a couple, four friends. Enjoy viewing miles and miles of the Gulf of Mexico or picturesque Little Lagoon. Open the doors to enjoy the salt water breeze and sounds of the surf. A private Gulf-front beach with a gazebo and walk over is a short stroll from the front door.

Plan your days around viewing a setting sun over the Lagoon from one of two new piers. There is also a private launch (small fee) for your small boat or jet ski. The popular 'pass' connecting the Gulf of Mexico with Little Lagoon is a short boat ride, float, or walk away. Fishing is great at the pass. Young and old will enjoy the private sand beach on the lagoon, our pool, kiddie pool, or two lighted tennis courts. Outdoor grills and picnic tables are available as well.

Owner provides access to high speed internet; access also available at some complex sites.

Bed and sofa bed are queen size. Unit is non smoking. Sorry, no pets.

                            What a great experience!!! My boyfriend and I stayed in the wonderful condo for spring break. The condo was clean and well stocked with everything we needed and more! Judi was beyond nice and communication was great! I highly recommend this unit for couples, girls trips, or a small family. Thank you for making our vacation plans so easy! :) Kristi & Scott

                            Perfect for my daughter and I; we had such a great time. This is one of the best condo's in the unit, great views, front and back balcony, corner unit (quieter than others.) We will be back next year. Everything you could possibly need, Judi had available. Noticed, there were ramps available for anyone in a wheelchair. Thought this was a nice touch for the facility.

                            My husband and I enjoyed our week long stay at this unit. It was clean and well stocked. I would visit again but at a different time of year. The beach was very crowded but other than that it was great.

                            This condo was a little small, but it was fine for our small family. It is a short walk to the beach. It has a terrific view of the beach as well as the lagoon at the back of the property. It has everything you need, cooking utensils, seasoning, dishes, etc. Makes it easy to cook instead of going out every day! The owner was very nice and helpful! Overall, we had a great vacation!

                            I searched for two weeks on a place to stay in Gulfshores and finally found this property and condo that fit our budget. We stayed for 6 nights used the pull out sofa for two of my kids, cooked breakfast and lunch most every day which saved us time and money by staying away from the crowded restraunts. The beach was across the highway which was no problem to walk to but my kids seemed to have more fun at the swimming pool. The balcony views was great, The balcony from the bedroom viewed one side of the bay and the one in the living room viewed the beach. Me personally I enjoyed being able to fish one of the days at the bay. That's one thing I like most about this property is having two different atmospheres, The Bay and then the Beach right at your finger tips. . Another thing to mention is we found binoculars and some kids games that Judi had in the condo, thank you so much for that little surprise. I could keep going on about how much we enjoyed every thing but time does not allow. The only negative thing I could say is the pull out sofa can be a little tricky to get back in, but other than that it's a wonderful place to stay in Gulfshores. Normally our vacations are spent in Gatlinburg or Branson but it seemed much cooler here in July with the breeze from the ocean and the Bay. Thank you Judi for allowing us to stay, God Bless.

                            I cannot say enough good things about our stay here! Judi was terrific to deal with and she has made her condo feel like home. It was fixed so cutely and the view was even better than in the picture,just looking again at the photos to write this review made me smile. As well as a wonderful condo Gulf Shores surf and Raquet was a very enjoyable place to stay whether it be walking the miles of beach or lounging by a palm tree at the pool, you will not be dissappointed!!

The room was clean and decorated nicely. Everything was furnished and well equipped. We hope to come back again so we can enjoy the gorgeous views from both the balconies. Thank you Judi for an enjoyable stay!!

                            Our family of three just spent seven nights at this great condo. The views are fabulous from both balconys. The condo is decorated beautifully with lots of color. We had everything we needed. We enjoyed eating at the wonderful restaurants. Our favorites were Desotos and The Original Oyster House. West Beach Grill has a great breakfast menu. We have stayed at many places in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, but this one is our favorite. It has one of the best pools, and the landscaping is beautiful. We also enjoyed fishing in the bay as well as the Ocean. We walked the beach in the evenings and met so many nice people. We loved the family atmosphere. This has been a very relaxing vacation, and we hope to go back next year. Judi (the owner) was exceptionally nice and went out of her way to make sure we had everything that we needed. Thanks again Judi.
