              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We are from Effingham, Illinois. We work hard so that we can vacation in Gulf Shores :) We have spent alot of time getting our unit exactly how we want it while we are there. It has everything you might need or would use at home. We hope you love it as much as we do!

              Why the Owner Chose Crystal Shores West:
              When we were younger, we stayed in one of our friend's parents condo. We loved the ocean and the Gulf Shores area in general. We especially liked the fact that it was 'driveable' from many of the midwestern states, rather than wasting valuable vacationing time flying. We have 4 'children' in their 20's - 30's who work very hard, and we thought they would really like time away from work. Two of our children got married in 2009 year, and both honeymooned down here. They loved it! Come enjoy the weather and the friendly people of Gulf Shores!
