  • Awesome Condo

    "This condo is awesome. We enjoyed it and our stay in Gulf Shores. It looks exactly as the pictures show. We saw dolphins from the balcony and the view of the beach is great. Our vacation in Gulf Shores was one of our best ever. There is so much to do and the location of the condo is close to everything. The owners were great to work with. I would highly recommend this place and owners."

  • Thanksgiving Trip

    "Wonderful house on a beautiful lot on the bay with dock, paddle boats and kayaks. The house was very clean and decorated for Thanksgiving. This is our second year to spend our family vacation there and we love it. We have already signed up for next year. It is not far from shopping and theaters in Foley and Orange Beach."

  • Wonderful, beautiful, clean and perfect!

    "We are so pleased with our stay at the Sandbox! The home is sparkling clean, in a great location, had everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare our meals, and was spacious enough to accommodate 8 busy family members. We loved the sand toys, umbrellas, etc. that were stored beneath the home. The beach was clean and the pool as well. The home has beautiful decor, and we felt so relaxed and comfortable during our stay. Rhonda checked on us right after we arrived to make sure everything was perfect. I cannot imagine finding a nicer spot on Orange Beach! We are already planning our next trip. I will certainly recommend the Sandbox, or the adjoining duplex Aquavista, to anyone wanting a lovely place to vacation!"
