  • VERY NICE FAMILY GETAWAY HOUSE

    "This house is really awesome! It was large enough for my family to fit comfortably, very clean and well kept. The large area downstairs was a nice place to hang out and it is equipped with a picnic table and bbq grill. It was in the perfect location on the bay. Having a boat and a couple of jet skiis, the launch was convenient to get to and the boat house allowed us to keep the boat in the water during our stay. Beverly, the owner, is very sweet. We all really enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon. Thanks Beverly!"

  • Top-notch in every way!

    "I consider myself a seasoned traveler, one who puts many hours of time into planning each and every trip. I started planning our family trip to Gulf Shores approximately seven months ago. I researched virtually every condo available during my travel week, and Island Tower condo 2403 was my favorite. Dana, the owner, was very quick to get back with me when I reached out for more information on this gorgeous condo. She answered all of my questions with record speed, and she was wonderful about giving me tips from a local's perspective. I reserve the condo last fall, and anxiously anticipated our trip all winter. We arrived to Gulf Shores after a very intense thunderstorm and they long 13 hour drive with teenagers. :-) The condo was very easy to find. It is the tallest one directly off of the main street. We were able to find ample parking in the parking garage. The elevators were very close to where we parked. ( there are luggage carts on the first floor of the parking garage near the elevators) there are two elevators that service all 26 floors. There are only three units per floor so the elevators ran very quickly. When we arrived to the 24th floor we had the instructions printed off that Dana emailed us. The instructions were very detailed and informed us how to get into the condo. When we walked into the condo the view literally took our breath away. The pictures on the VRBO are very accurate but I don't think they fully show the beauty of this condo. The condo has been freshly cleaned since and most all of the basic items were already stocked. ( toilet paper, briquettes, dishwasher packets, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, dish soap, hand soap at all sinks, condiments, herbs and spices, beach toys, boogie boards, beach towels) There is a letter from the owners asking people to pay it forward. Meaning if they use the last of one item be sure to replace it for the next guest. (We certainly will!) The kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances as well; Microwave, oven, side-by-side refrigerator with water and ice dispenser, KitchenAid coffeemaker, KitchenAid toaster oven, glass top cooking stove, garbage disposal, dishwasher, and all of the pots pans and kitchen utensils that you will need to prepare almost any meal. Dana and her family also prepared a welcome book for the condo. This has all kinds of information!! Beds are comfy, linens are excellent. Sofa is very comfortable. You will not regret staying here! It's top notch!"

  • great condo

    "This condo has super amenities and Location. The resort is very nice and our condo was perfect for our family of 4 for spring break. We love the lanai and spent lots if time on it watching people and the gulf - wish we had seen dolphins! Only complaint we had is the mattress in the master is terrible! There are indentions on each side that you "fall into" so the mattress has seen its day. Everthing else was outstanding."

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.

The museum is home to more than 1,500 permanent pieces relating to space exploration. The U.S. Space & Rocket Center also offers two camp programs where people can stay on-site and learn more about space with the U.S. Space Camp or aviation with the Aviation Challenge. Along with displays, you can also check out the Spacedome Theater, Rocket Park and Education Training Center that houses NASA’s Educator Resource Center.

The Birmingham Zoo is home to about 800 different animals of more than 200 species. It’s also a force in elephant conservation, featuring a Trails of Africa exhibit. Along with the elephants, you can visit with rhinos, giraffes, birds and other creatures. The Montgomery Zoo allows visitors to take a trip to South America, Asia and other countries without ever leaving Alabama. With more than 500 animals, there’s plenty to see here, including elephants, penguins, zebras and more.

USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park: One of the country’s most unique military attractions, The USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park provides an exciting experience for the whole family. 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. Spend the day meandering through each space and savor the natural beauty everywhere you look.
