"**6 adults and 2 children (ages 4 & 2) stayed comfortably in this rental for 1 week.
The following are some things we really enjoyed about our stay: We loved how The Martinique was far enough away from the "touristy" part of Gulf Shores to ensure a quiet/laid back vacation, but it was close enough to town to visit the grocery and eat out a few times throughout the week. Neither the beach nor the pool were ever over-crowded. Both were always clean and well-kept. This was definitely a family-based community; everyone (including other vacationers as well as workers) were very polite and enjoyable to be around. Our boys really enjoyed golf cart rides in the mornings and evenings. The golf cart and wagon were both helpful in getting all of our "stuff" to the beach and back each day. The house itself wasn't terribly far from the boardwalk which accesses the beach. (Several family members chose to walk instead of ride the golf cart back and forth.) We felt the house was well-stocked. (Our boys enjoyed a couple of the provided DVD's and books. There are even a few games in the cabinet.) The owner was very prompt and thorough in communication prior to our vacation. We were never able to figure out how to operate the TV's in the upstairs bedrooms. Also, since we did have 6 adults + 2 kids, we felt a larger dining room table would have been nicer. (We are a family who likes to sit down to supper together -- we realize not all families do this.) To solve the problem, we just placed 2 of the bar stools from the high table on the patio at the end of the dining table. It worked for us but could be considered a little uncomforatable. We certainly would highly recommend staying at this property and we look forward to returning ourselves!"

"This property was absolutely amazing. Everything you need is in this home. The kitchen blew me away because it was stocked with every utensil needed including a wok. We were here during Thanksgiving and we had every utensil to cook dinner. The bedrooms were nice and the beds were comfortable. The children loved being outside riding the bikes in the cul de sac. The Golf cart tire was flat and the owners called immediately to get the tired fixed. You are 7 to 8 miles away from a store, so make sure you have what you need. The private beach and the pool was amazing as well. Will we be back.? Yes! Yes! Yes!"

"We stayed from June 13th,2015 to June 20th, and enjoyed every moment we were there. My wife and I, our daughter and her husband , and 3 grandkids plus the dog, spent a wonderful week and wish to thank Gordon for the use of the condo. Man, what a view of the gulf and pool from the balcony, and the extra ice machine in the kitchen was awesome. Everything we needed for cooking was at your fingertips, and the washer and drier worked well. The place is so peaceful, and the walk around Martinique is outstanding. It was only a small walk to the beach and pool from the room and we were at one or the other most of the time. At night we had the television, but mostly played cards or just sat on the balcony and watched the stars. We had a terrific week of family fun and we hope to be able to return in the near future."

"This was our first stay at " Earthly Paradise" and will not be our last. What a lovely vacation
home and so spacious. We enjoyed all the amenities the beach chairs, golf cart ( how handy that was for the beach) beach towels, etc. The screened- in back porch came in handy, our oldest son made homemade ice cream.
The kitchen was great for our youngest son who loves to cook. Our five year old granddaughter loved the bunk beds.
It was nice to have all our family together. Many memories to treasure always. We have stayed in the Fort Morgan area before, but this was our first stay at Martinique. What
a beautiful place, did not disappoint.
Amy was great to work with and responded to any concerns promptly. Thank you
for a great week in " paradise.""
