  • Outstanding!

    "Enjoyed this beautiful house with three other couples. Nicely furnished and convenient to Oxmoor---Maybe 200 yards to clubhouse. Would recommend for avid golfers who wish to enjoy three courses on the RTJ. Oxmoor Valley, Oxmoor Ridge and Ross Bridge."

  • AWESOME!!!

    "We could not have picked a more perfect place! Palm Beach Condos is my family's favorite place to stay, but this condo has been the best yet. Super clean, nicely decorated and loved dealing directly with the owner. Can't wait to come back."

  • Perfect family get-together

    "I have been recommending this property to several friends and acquaintances since we returned from our vacation in this lovely condo at Gulf Shores, AL. It was the perfect place for myself, my husband, and my three children and their spouses. A couple of the bedrooms had a closet so large that my 9 month old grandson had his own room with the porta-crib in the closet. The only negative comment that I could was that a few of the appliances would work better if the dust was cleaned off their motor coverings more often. One other point I would add is be to sure to read all of the information sent to you before you leave. They had sent us a very clear list of things we might need (washing machine and dishwashing detergent, soap, shampoo, etc) when we first booked the condo in January, but we missed this list as we prepared for our trip. But after a trip to the store which we had planned anyway for food for the week, all was remedied and we had a great week together. We arrived after dark so we were pleasantly surprised in the morning when we were able to see beautiful sites in almost every direction. Being a little bit out of town was great as the beach was a short walk and not crowded at all. A couple members of our group even rented a kayak and enjoyed a tour of the Lagoon and looking for dolphins in the gulf. The pool was a great asset for our grandson with many depths of water. He particularly enjoyed the 6 inch part where he could sit and splash. The photos told us what to expect, but we were even more impressed when we arrived at the vastness and cleanliness of the condo. We enjoyed many of the area's seafood restaurants and even our non-seafood eater found something at all of them. We even ate at the DeSoto Seafood House twice. And LuLu's was great as there was plenty to do while we waited for our table. The main purpose of our trip was to have family together and relax. This condo was perfect for us to accomplish these goals."

  • Excellent family getaway

    "Our family of five adults, one teenager, and two children spent seven days at the condo and enjoyed the entire stay. The photos of the condo on the website accurately depict the interior of the condo and the exterior of the grounds. Two restaurants are easily accessed at the complex and shuttles are offered to those needing transportation on the grounds. The pool was well maintained and access to the beach was easy. The drive to Gulf Shores for shopping is a pleasant drive along Highway 180 where stately Pine trees and Live Oak trees covered with Spanish moss are common along the roadside. Fort Morgan is a nice visit for novice or lifelong historians. The drive to the fort is fifteen minutes from the condo and anywhere from an hour to two and one-half hours can be spent on a walking tour at the fort facilities and museum. We look forward to returning to the condo for a future visit."

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 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.
