Recent Alabama reviews

  • Great first trip to Gulf Shores

    "We recently made our first trip to Gulf Shores. My husband and I traveled with our 3 kids( 14, 11, and 9). Ricky's condo was perfect for us. We all had plenty of room and the comforts of home. The bed in the master was so comfortable, and opening my eyes and being able to see the ocean from the patio doors in the bedroom was wonderful. One thing I want to mention that I found really great was there was a dehumidifier in the condo. We have always traveled to beaches for vacations and have stayed in may Condo's, but this was the first time I had seen this. It was genius. Our Condo was always comfortably cool and dry feeling. Surfside itself was great too. The kids could play in the pool,and we had super easy access to the beach since you are right on the beach. We rented the chairs for the week and Evan the cabana boy made sure he took care of us. I would highly recommend Ricky's condos for your next vacation. I know we will be back."

  • absolute heaven

    "We had 3 moms and 9 kids ranging from 11 to 18 years old. We loved the privacy of the beach as well as the perfection of the house. The layout out the house was terrific and we couldn't have asked for more when it came to how well the house was stocked. It was truly a great trip and one that we will always remember very fondly. Loved every minute."

  • Great for families!

    "My husband and I decided to take a family vacation and preferred to go in September, great decision! This condo was perfect for us and our two small children, price was great, and no crowds at the pool or beach. Ice machine was a great perk we were glad we had. Our boys loved sharing a room and having their own bathroom. The kitchen was gorgeous stocked w plenty of dishes and cookware. The complex is quiet and convenient. Looking forward to coming back!"

For anyone looking to escape cold, wet winters, the climate in Alabama ranges from mild to hot with summer temperatures climbing to 100 degrees - perfect for a warm getaway. Winters are less harsh here, with temperatures ranging from 30 to 60 degrees.

If you visit during football season, taking in a game between the Crimson Tide and the Tigers is sure to be entertaining both on and off the field.
