Crystal Shores condo description

Welcome to the BEACH!!! It’s all about location when you come to Gulf Shores. Crystal Shores is Gulf Front property and our condo is located on the 7th floor with unobstructed views to the Gulf with high patio furniture so you look over the railing instead of thru it!
A reserved parking spot is deeded to the condo on the ground floor and it’s shaded! No more hot car to get into! It's also close to the elevator with trolleys to place your bags on for easy rolling to the condo.
Everything is located very close to the condo! Pier 33 is across the street (everything you need from groceries to drinks), Surf Style, Island Outfitters, Alvin's for beach gear and clothes, and several restaurants are a walk away.
Our Master Bed is a King with a private bathroom and has a direct sliding door to the balcony. The 2nd bedroom is a Full on Full Bunk bed attached to 2nd bathroom with plenty of drawer space. The Living room couch is a pullout queen. Each bedroom has new flat screen TV with remote and the Living room is a 42' flat screen TV. All TVs have a DVD player with DVD remote. The Kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook and we have extra equipment including a crook pot and automatic coffee pot! A nice gym, sauna, and game room are located on the Lobby Floor. We have opened our storage room to visitors to enjoy boogie boards, surf board, floaties, fishing poles and gear, flash lights, beach toys (and an electric blower), beach chairs and umbrellas to enjoy the beach without worry of purchase and to save you money. We have extra blankets, throws, bed sheets, and pillows. We also just put in a new PS3 with two controllers with some games for the big kids and little kids. The PS3 player can also play the Blue Ray DVDs that we have added to the movie library. Games and puzzles are in the living room.

          Additional information about rental rates

          Fees:

          • Parking Pass $10
          • Tax Rate 11%

          Notes:

          For ease of payments, I have included the cleaning fee into the weekly rate. Due to our VERY close proximity to the Hang Out Fest (10 minute walking distance or shuttle rides RIGHT across the street) and with FULL use of our beach supplies closet loaded with beach supplies we feel this is one of, if not the BEST rate your going to find!!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: Dallas is an retired LTC in the US Army of 27 years. I flew the UH-72 Lakota helicopter and flew counter narcotic missions everyday. Donna is a retired Major of 23 active duty years and is currently in school for RN. We have 2 teenage boys who love the internet for their games in the condo. Me and Donna enjoy the beach but the boys would rather play games. Its a happy medium and we enjoy going out to eat when we are at the condo and watching movies at the Cobb or the Wharf.

          Why the Owner Chose Crystal Shores:
          We purchased this property for our love of the beach and water and the sound at night of the waves crashing on the beach. Also its a short getaway for us and we love to share our condo with friends and family.

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          We love sitting on the balcony at night drinking a glass of wine. Also, waking up in the morning and drinking a cup of coffee watching the dolphins play and the sun coming up makes for a great start to any day.
