Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet Club condo description

This stunning condo is available for parties of up to 4 people, children included.

New couch - New easy chair - New beds - New bedroom furniture - New entertainment center - New 50 inch flat screen TVs - New granite counter tops - New dishwasher.

We do not rent to students on Spring Break.

This is a non-smoking unit. It is a beautiful newly renovated two bedroom condo on the fourth floor of the Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club (GSSRC) complex. Uniquely located to provide access to both the Gulf Shores West Beach and Little Lagoon, this complex truly is the best of both worlds. On the front side of the complex is the beach that Coastal Living ranked the number one beach in the United States. On the back is a beautiful huge lagoon for boating and fishing.

Every piece of furniture in the condo is new, purchased in October and November, 2013.

The white sugar sand beaches of the the Alabama Gulf Coast truly are the best in the world and they are only a few steps away from the Surf and Racquet Club. Walk out the front door of the complex, cross the street, and you are on the beach! Dedicated 24 hour access to the beach through a GSSRC owned gazebo on the front side of the complex. Enjoy the beach anytime you want!

In back of the Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club complex is the beautiful and relaxing Little Lagoon. In protected water, it is a great place to boat, fish, ski, sail, kayak, and swim.

The Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club is loaded with amenities. There is an exquisitely maintained adult pool as well as a hot tub and a children's pool. There are two docks for fishing and docking your boat, a boat launch, dedicated parking for boat trailers, shuffleboard, picnic tables, and several charcoal grills. There are two lighted tennis courts with lights that you control.

Please check out the photos of the view from the spacious 4th floor balcony. This, more than anything, is what sold us on this condo.

In addition to the view, we chose this unit specifically for its location within the complex. It is on the west side of the complex with a balcony that faces east. It is shaded in the afternoon so the patio is the perfect place to hang out in the afternoon. Most weather blows in from the west so the patio is a great (dry) place to sit in the rain!

Both the living room and the master bedroom have sliding glass doors leading to the balcony.

This condo has all new furniture. Nice furniture. It features all granite countertops, two 50 inch flat screen smart TVs, and dedicated Internet access.

The master bedroom features a queen size bed. The second bedroom has two twin beds.

No more worrying about where to put the keys when you go to the beach or the pool! This unit has keyless entry. Just punch in your code for entry.

Have a boat? Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club is where you want to stay. It has dedicated parking for your trailer. There is both boat launch for your convenience as well as numerous boat docks so your boat will always be ready for action during your stay.

Internet access: this unit has an in room WiFi modem/router with excellent speed. We have tested the speed many times and it has ranged from 15 megabits to 26 megabits per second. The unit has such good speed that when we have an intense internet research project, we come down to the condo to do it because it is so much faster than our home. Occasionally the whole beach loses connectivity and obviously when the beach is down, our WiFi is down. Most of the time it is up and very, very fast. Additionally, the complex has free WiFi service in the pool area and both docks.

50 inch Flat Screen Smart Televisions: This unit has 50 inch Flat Screen HD Televisions in both the living room and the master bedroom. They are connected to the WiFi and you can stream movies from your Amazon or Netflix accounts. You can watch YouTube videos. We have specifically configured the television in the living room so you can easily connect your Xbox, Playstation, Wii, etc to HDMI, RGB, or A/V connections on the television. In the living room there is also a Blu-ray/DVD player for watching movies.

Coastal Living ranked West Beach in Gulf Shores the best beach in the United States saying, 'Alabama's best beach stretches six miles from Gulf Shores Parkway to the end of Dolphin Drive. The farther west you go the less congested it gets—until there's nothing but sun, sea, and your own footprints. But what sets Gulf Shores apart from other Gulf Coast destinations is the quality of the sand: soft underfoot and ultra-bright white. Summer water temperatures hover at bathtub levels, and gentle waves make the beach safe for even the youngest waders.'

Please be sure and check out the website we have posted that describes the condo in even more detail. There is a link to it below under 'Links to more information.'

New - June 2014: The Beach Express is open and can save you significant time and aggravation on your way to Gulf Shores. There is a link to a site describing the best route below under 'Links to More Information.'

We are locals. We live in Foley - 20 minutes away. If there is a problem with the condo, we can and will address it immediately.

It seemed kind of silly to have a 50 inch high resolution television connected via HDMI to a high resolution Blu-Ray player and then provide guests with a bunch of old tired medium resolution DVDs. Accordingly, we have selected a series of the highest resolution Blu-ray disks in existence to provide the ultimate viewing experience. Here are some of the high definition movies we have in Blu-Ray format: Avatar, Toy Story Three, The Hunger Games, Titanic, Shrek Two, E T Extra Terrestrial , The Dark Knight, Iron Man Three, Casablanca, Gladiator, Wreck It Ralph, Casino Royale, Pirates Of The Carribean At Worlds End, Baraka, Hugo, The Wizard Of Oz, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, Ratatouille, King Kong, Beauty And The Beast, Tropic Thunder, Lord Of The Ring: The Return Of The King, Wall-E, The Lion King, Despicable Me, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part I, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part 2 , Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen , Jurrasic Park, The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn Part One, The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn Part Two, Lawrence Of Arabia, Finding Nemo, Pirates Of The Caribbean - Dead Mans Chest, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, Independence Day, Zero Dark Thirty, Monsters University, Monsters, Inc., Planes, Planet Earth, Spider Man One, Spider Man Two, Spider Man Three

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: Mike and Debbie - We are retired local residents who live in Foley, Alabama, just north of Gulf Shores. One Auburn fan and one Alabama fan so give us some space in late November!

          Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet Club:
          We live in South Alabama. We have been to literally every place on the Alabama Gulf Coast Beach. We chose Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club because of its unique location which offers both beach and lagoon access. We are volunteers with 'Share the Beach,' a group of people who monitor Alabama beaches from May 1st until September 1st looking for sea turtle tracks. West Beach Blvd. from Calloway Pass to the gated Laguna Key is our section of beach that we monitor.

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          Beautiful view of the pool and Little Lagoon, a boat ramp, fishing dock, and yet only a minute walk to the most beautiful beach on the planet.
