Recent Gulf Shores West reviews

  • Wonderful Week!!!

    "Very charming, cozy condo!!! Well equipped kitchen, clean, super easy beach access, perfect getaway for our 17th annual honeymoon. Lola was very nice, accommodating, took a personal interest in the condition of the condo before our arrival, and very quick with the return of our deposit. In fact, I actually met her as she was personally inspecting the condo next to ours prior to another guests arrival. You can't beat that! We would DEFINITELY stay here again. ps. Rented a 3 bedroom condo with the whole family earlier this summer for more than four times the price, that didn't have a quarter of the kitchen appointments Lola's condo had...I'm just sayin."

  • Great multi-family house

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had two families of four staying at the Orion House and we fit perfectly. The house is situated perfectly: lagoon access on the back; and a short (1 min) walk to the gulf on the front. Additionally, the lot is on a cul de sac so traffic is minimal. We rented 4 sea kayaks so the lagoon side was perfect for boat launches. As well, we fished off of the back deck almost every evening (lots of little fish) and threw in the crab pot for fun (only 2 large crabs - but they were cool to look at). <br/><br/>As mentioned in other reviews, the kitchen has nearly every item you could think of (and several others that you were not thinking of). There is also a charcoal grill on the upper patio which we used almost every evening and it comes with very serviceable grilling utensils.<br/><br/>We had intentions of eating at local restaurants each day but found S&S Seafood (~1 mile away) to be too good to pass up. 3-4 times we picked up raw seafood (mostly shrimp) and cooked them on the grill or steamed them. S&S isn't fancy but the shrimp are amazing. Plus, drinks are a lot cheaper at home and everyone can relax and not worry about driving home. We also caught a ton of fish on a charter trip () and had mahi mahi and snapper on the grill. Unbelievable. We also went fishing at the pier several times which was great: hammerhead sharks; bull sharks; jumping sharks - and lots of fish (you can buy equipment there for what you expect to rent equipment: $50).<br/><br/>While we appreciated the huge TV and Direct TV, we only had it on for ~20 minutes the entire week (pleasantly). Overall, this was a great trip and everybody (ages 12-50) had a great time."

  • Great relaxing condo with amazing sunset

    "We visit Gulf Shores every other summer and this was our first time to stay on the bay instead of the beach. It was so relaxing and the sunset was amazing. The bay is beautiful and so quiet and peaceful. We always eat at Lulus, Lamberts, and The Shrimp Basket and they were all so close. We added Hopes cheesecake to our MUST DO list this trip. It has Cheesecake Factory beat by a mile! Our 8 year old grandson loves The Track bumper boats, gocarts, and mini golf. Everything was so convenient. The condo has a pool and gym which were never crowded and we made good use of both. Covered parking was a great extra. WE will be back and will recommend this place to our family and friends! Take kids on the Fun Dolphin Boat on Canal Road. The watergun fight before returning was a highlight of the trip after seeing lots of dolphins up close!"
