  • GREAT condo and location!

    "This condo was amazing for our family Spring Break! I felt like my kids were very safe. The condo was clean and beautiful and had everything you needed and more. Susan (owner) did a great job of giving info before you arrived. The beach/pools/hot tubs were amazing. We did lots of fun things together as a family (volleyball in pool, looking for crabs on the beach, flying a kite on the beach, etc). There was nothing that was inconvenient at all....I would definitely recommend this to anyone for a great vacation spot."

  • Had a blast!

    "My wife & kids (ages 3 & 1) stayed here in September and loved it. The unit & the entire complex is as described and just as it appears in the YouTube videos. The view from the 20th floor is fantastic since you're well above the condos across the street. The 3-minute walk to the large pool/beach area is not bad at all. Our kids actually enjoyed watching cars go underneath us as we walked across the air-conditioned walkway. The large pool area is great, especially for kids. Pool is very large & has a lazy river with a bunch of fountains (another hit w/ our kids). Also a huge hot tub & plenty of lounge chairs (both by the pool and on a separate sundeck above the pool). Some areas could use a minor facelift (e.g., a few missing/cracked tiles in the pool area) but nothing that will interfere with your enjoyment. If you don't want to walk to the large pool, there's also a smaller outdoor pool & hot tub at the base of the condo. Adjacent to this outdoor pool is a heated indoor pool, which came in handy one morning when we had rain. There are plenty of elevators, and we never had to wait long for one. Unpacking is a breeze, too, as there are lots of luggage/shopping carts near the elevators. Walking from the elevator to the unit, you get a beautiful view of Little Lagoon as you look out to the north. The balcony views of the beach & ocean to the south (and sunsets to the west, of course) are even more spectacular. The unit itself is very nice. Kitchen & laundry room are well-stocked, and there are some games & books in the family room. We loved the balcony and spent a lot of time out there (eating lunch, watching the sunset, listening to the waves & looking at the stars at night). Gulf Shores is a great town with plenty to do & lots of dining options nearby. Some that we went to have decent food but are a bit touristy such as Original Oyster House & The Hangout (although this place seems like it would be a lot of fun during peak season). By far, our favorite meal, though, was Bahama Bob's. Close by, nice location right along the beach, and great food. The steamed Royal Reds shrimp were amazing and the burger & fries were excellent as well. Even simple things like my son's grilled cheese was one of the best I've ever tasted. Even if you have a wait, it's well worth it. Lastly, both the owners & the management company (Young's Suncoast) were great to work with. Would definitely consider coming back & would highly recommend to others."

  • Great Family Vacation !!!!

    "We stayed here the last week in July and we loved it. We never imagined that our condo would be this nice. We came here with 3 generations of family. Kids(6and10),2parents, and grandparents. we went to the beach almost every day! There is such great area for shelling. We actually made a bird house with all of our shells. The pools were not very crowded. We were so grateful for all of the fun amenities. We went to the yummiest restraints like lulus and the oyster bar. Lulus is great for kids because kids get to ride on water in hamster balls. The go-kart track is great and the owner provided us with free passes. One day me and my dad went out to by my mom some shrimp, she really liked them. There's a great breakfast place called Kitty's Café right by target and Publix grocery store. We shopped there a lot. here's a tip, get mini water bottles, those come in handy at the beach. there's this great place called ritas shaved ice and its at the pool every day. the room could never have been nicer. We almost wanted to be there every day. We were so lucky to be able to come here!!! well hope you enjoy your stay if you come."
