  • Secluded, as expected

    "This is for you if you are looking for: The basics, privacy, a fenced yard for dogs, an above ground pool, a quiet place to read or write or sleep, being within walking distance of the beach, but not literally on it. This is not for you if you want: Fancy, upscale, middle of the action, teenagers everywhere, walk out of house onto beach. Owner was friendly and accommodating. Satellite didn't work, but owner gave us Netflix remote and we watched movies. What you see is what you get from the pictures. Bed wasn't all that comfy, but futon couch and bar stools were fine by us. Back patio leaked from upper deck pretty badly during storm. Great for letting the dogs out in the morning or late at night. You can walk 3 blocks to the beach or, load the pups up and drive about 5-6 minutes west to 3 mile Street and park at the end and set up there. In fact, it was even more secluded than Surfside area. Restaurants are sparse. But there's a few within 5-10 minute drive. A full kitchen was good for leftovers. Space-wise, probably best for couples with pets, maybe young children. After that, seating is limited, unless people sit at the bar. It was clean. Simple. Basic."

  • No other place I want to stay!

    "Our stay was great from the moment we stepped into this condo. Aletas' attention to the small details made our stay comfortable, warm & inviting from the sheets to the coffee maker. It was clean and everything you would need for a weeks stay was made available. We especially enjoyed the extended living area on the balcony...she made a effort to have this space especially comfortable...not your usual plastic furniture. When we return, it will be to this condo!"

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.
