Recent Alabama property reviews

  • What's not to like?

    "My wife and I rented Casa Playa from Jan. 1 until Feb. 15 and could not have been more pleased. Not only is the Alabama coast beautiful, the property and neighborhood are awesome. The owner is very prompt in answering any questions or concerns and the pictures do. It do the house justice. The linens etc are very nice and the kitchen appliances are all excellent, not second hand like you see in some rental property. The under counter ice machine and keyless entry are also very nice. You. Ever run out of ice and there are no door keys to worry about! We reserved Casa Playa for the same time year before we left. That is the first time we have done that."

  • Top notch condo!

    "We stayed in this condo during spring break. We have stayed at the beach club for 6 yrs and this was one of the nicest. The condo is huge! It was super clean and nicely decorated. The seating on the balcony was very generous and the new electric grill was perfect for our burgers. We even saw dolphins while having coffee on the balcony:). Each room had a nice king bed, flat screen tv, and bathroom. The kitchen was very nice and had one of the best blenders and anything you would need in a kitchen. We even made chocolate chip pancakes on the electric skillet. Mike was very easy to get in touch with and called us right back to help us find the cord for the grill. He is even mailing some clothes we left in a drawer! We highly recommend staying in This condo!"

  • Compass Point Condo

    "We had a great time at the condo! It was a perfect place to relax, swim in the gulf, fish in the bay and just enjoy the area. It was close enough to everything where it was very accessible but still not right in the middle of the more populated areas. We looked at all the restuarants in the area but ended up ordering take out from one of the seafood places ( S&S or DeSoto's) most days. Followed up most nights with ice cream at the place right next to S&S ( sorry can't remember the name but it was great!). I highly recommend this condo to anyone headed to Gulf Shores!"
