Recent Gulf Shores West reviews

  • Wonderful Family Vacation!

    "The condo was clean and beautifully decorated. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals. The views from the balcony provided a lovely spot to watch the sunset. The beach is just a short walk across the street. We left our canopy and chairs on the beach all week rather than carry them back and forth every day. No one bothered them :) The pool was a nice break from the beach and the kids really enjoyed it. We spent our evenings on the fishing/boat dock crabbing, fishing and chatting with other families. We truly enjoyed every moment of our vacation. The owners were available for any questions or concerns we had during our stay. We will DEFINITELY be staying again. We highly recommend trying out S&S seafood for take out. It was only about a mile away from the condo. Convenient and delicious! We also enjoyed Papa Rocco's Pizza (try the oysters!), DeSoto's, the Shrimp Basket and Lambert's."

  • 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."

  • Super Clean & Right on the Beach

    "My husband and I decided to have a quick getaway without the kids for a few days. This place was the best! It was very clean and neat. There was plenty of room for us and we plan on going back and taking our twins. There was a nice little shop within walking distance for all our needs. When we walked down the stairs we were just a few short strides from the beautiful sandy beach!!!"
