  • Wonderful First Impression for Gulf Shores

    "This was our first family vacation to Gulf Shores. After our long trip we were VERY pleased to be greeted with such a lovely condo. We enjoyed relaxing on the porches and in the beautiful sitting areas. Will definitely be returning. Thank you again."

  • Great Stay

    "An excellent facility, great hosts. This condo is very well maintained, it easily accomodated our 3 famlies (3 adult couples and a total of our 4 grandchildren). The 3 bedroom/3 bathroom combination was perfect. The furnishings and kitchen utensils were more than adequate and the usual commodities like cable, phone, etc, were all in perfect working condition. The outside facilities (pool, dock, etc) were very well maintained. The slip reserved for the apartment was perfect for our jet ski. The view from the master bedroom and balcony is hypnotizing, especially at sunset or during a distant thunderstorm. Christie, owner of the facility, answered all my calls, emails and inquiries as quickly as she received them. She was very pleasant and accomodating, never giving me the opportunity to second guess my choice. The rate was very reasonable and payment arrangements were made painlessly in a matter of minutes. She even recommended a marina just 5 minutes from the facility where I could store our jet ski trailer. The owner of the marina didn't even charge me for the storage. As stated in a another review, there are no large convenience stores nearby (which contributed to the peacefull setting). Only a couple of gas stations about 15 minutes away with the usual convenience store and "captive audience" high prices so, you should bring what you deem will be needed during your stay. We met Christe and her husband Mark on our last day at the condo and were very pleased, though not surprised, to realize they were the kind of hosts you want to deal with when renting a facility. This was an extremely pleasurable experience, one in which all elements fell in place and one we plan to repeat for a fall get away."

  • Nice beach home.. easy access to/from the ferry

    "This was a nice vacation home for our family. We had 10 people and there was plenty of room for everyone to have "their" space. The kitchen was well stocked with the key necessities preventing the need to bring many items from home. There were many beach chairs, toys, etc that we used so that we didn't need to even bring ours from home. The kids had a great time. We loved both the lower and upper patios that faced the ocean. All the bedrooms / bathrooms provided the privacy, we all wanted. The only "complaint" anyone had is the access to the beach. There is direct access to the beachwalk, but, once you accessed the walkway, you still had a walk to get to the beach. If anyone has any trouble walking a distance, then, this could be difficult. I thought the beach access would be a little more direct than it actually was in reality. However, this would not prevent us from renting this house again. Everyone loved it. This location had easy access to the Gulf Shores Marina ( across the street). We chartered a boat for deep sea fishing, and, could leave from this marina instead of driving to Orange Beach - 45 minutes away. I would highly recommend this house."

  • GREAT LOCATION!

    "Me and my family (wife and 2 daughters) stayed here for a week in late July 2014. We have stayed in several condos in the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area over the past 4 years but this was our favorite. The location is fantastic and the beach was not very crowded. The owners have a parking space you can use underneath the condo (in the shade) which was also very convenient. The condo is located on the east end of the 4th floor and very quiet. The beds were very comfortable, we had plenty of hot water, and the washer/dryer worked very well also. The kitchen was fully equipped and the ice maker in the refrigerator was convenient. The owners were very helpful throughout the entire process, and did everything they could to ensure we had a great stay. The only downside to the entire condo is the elevator... there is only one and it is very slow. Since the condo is on 4th floor, we used the stairs a lot. We had a great time and will definitely stay here again!"

Known as the "Heart of Dixie," Alabama borders Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi and Florida. Though the capital of Alabama is Montgomery, the most populated city is Birmingham and the oldest city is Mobile, which was founded by French colonists.

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.

History buffs will enjoy exploring any of the state’s 36 national historic landmarks and more than 1,200 locations that are part of the National Register of Historic Places. All of Alabama is steeped in rich and interesting facts from its beginning up until the present time.

Along with displays, you can also check out the Spacedome Theater, Rocket Park and Education Training Center that houses NASA’s Educator Resource Center.

Along with the elephants, you can visit with rhinos, giraffes, birds and other creatures.

Located on the western shore of Mobile Bay, the park features a collection of wartime aircraft and ships. The USS Alabama is a national historic landmark and a great way to pay respects to soldiers who have fallen in the past.

Bryant-Denny Stadium: In Tuscaloosa, you’ll find the home of the University of Alabama and Bryant-Denny Stadium. Originally the football shrine was built to honor the university’s first president, it was amended later to also honor the famous Alabama football coach Paul “Bear” Bryant. Alabama is also home to one of the United States’ oldest college rivalries between Auburn University and the University of Alabama. 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.

Huntsville Botanical Garden: While visiting Huntsville, be sure to stop at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. Free and open year-round, it’s home to a butterfly house as well as a variety of gardens, including aquatic, wildflower, fern, rose and others.
