About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5

Welcome to the SeaHorse--Our little slice of paradise! The SeaHorse is a beautiful, low density Condo complex that takes you back to the way Gulf Shores used to be. No big high rise with elevators and lines to get to your unit. Park right outside your door with a view of the pool and Gulf of Mexico.

Enjoy our newly decorated 2 bedroom one bath unit with calming Caribbean colors. Fresh paint, new floors in the bedrooms and all new furnishings make our unit a perfect place for your "home away from home." Relax in the den while watching your large screen tv, or just enjoy "The "Beach Life" with no schedules or worries. Both bedrooms have comfortable queen beds and nice linens with a tv in each room and picture windows with a great view. The new sofa opens up into a sleeper to accommodate extra guests. Our open kitchen is fully equipped to cook any meal your heart desires and a dishwasher to help with cleanup. Look out the nice window in the kitchen and see the pool and also the ocean. The dining room table sits in front of a big picture window and seats four comfortably with additional seating at the bar.

Our unit is on the first floor, up one flight of stairs, and directly overlooks the beautiful sparkling swimming pool, which makes it convenient for kids and adults alike. We are directly across a 2 lane road from beach at the famous 13th street beach access. When you step out of your door, you are literally a one minute walk to the pristine beaches. A beautiful beach view can be seen right from your balcony. You can relax on your covered porch and read a book, watch your children swim in the pool, or enjoy a refreshing drink while feeling the ocean breeze as you soak in the sights of the water. Below the unit is an open air, covered deck where you can hang out, cook out on condo grills or just chill. Bring your kayak and take advantage of the Lagoon which is only a few minutes away. It is also a great area to bring your bikes and take in the scenery.

We are located on the quiet end of west beach, but just 2.3 miles from the Highway 59 intersection and The famous Hangout Restaurant. When you're not soaking up the sun, there is plenty of fun for all ages. Check out the water parks, amusement parks, go-karts, miniature golf, deep sea fishing, night life, tons of shopping at Tanger Outlets, and wonderful restaurants.

We are actually locals ourselves, so help is only a phone call away. Let us help you relax....Life really is always better at the beach!

Pam Sowell purchased this condo in 2017

Why Pam Sowell chose Gulf Shores

Gulf Shores is an amazing beautiful beach with limited high rise condos. When you drive down the beach road, you can actually see the water and not just buildings. When you visit, you feel like a local, not a tourist. Gulf Shores is charming and quaint, so when we saw the SeaHorse, we knew it was a great fit for us. When we walked in the condo at the SeaHorse, we knew this unit was for us. We hope you will experience the same good feeling when you walk into our unit. It is bright and cheerful with an open floor plan and is tastefully and cheerfully decorated. We also love that we can park right in front of our unit, sit on the balcony and see the water, and be on the beach in one minute. It is quiet, yet close to everything.

What makes this condo unique

The SeaHorse is a small quaint complex so close to the beach you can smell the salt air and see the water. It is also right near the Lagoon if you want to kayak or boat. The neighborhood is perfect to walk in or ride a bike. It is also only 2 miles to The Hangout. It is also close to Gulf State Park which just opened a new boardwalk that boasts a scenic, wildlife walk that's safe and fun.

Great Location, Ideal for kids!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo from 6/5-6/8 and had a great experience. I have stayed in a LOT of condos in GS and this is by far the best value + ideal for kids. It was plenty of room for the 4 of us (two kids: 5 and 11) and being right by the pool was great for the kids. These condos are so family friendly and a much better choice than the high rises if you have kids. No elevator, steps from the beach, showers to rinse off sand and outdoor area to leave shoes, beach toys etc. The condo was clean, straight forward and zero hassles. We arrived around 4 and had car unloaded and everyone at the beach within 15 minutes- can't beat that!! The accessibility to parking, the beach, pool and the unit made this a stress-free, easy few beach days. Went to The Hangout, The Steamer, Beach House, and crab hunting on the beach at night. Rouses Supermarket is just a few minutes down the road and plenty of little beach shops for easy item pick ups. We are already trying to squeeze in another trip before summer is over!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking your time to write these nice words. So glad you and your family enjoyed your vacation. Sure we can work out something for you again before school starts back. Seahorse is the best kept secret on West Beach.

Clean!! Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe I never wrote a review last year... My husband and I spent a week in this condo last June with our 5 year old. The condo was perfect. It was clean and well stocked, everything worked well and we had no problems at all. Except not wanting to leave to come home... :) The keyless entry was VERY convenient! The pool was clean and the entry to the beach was 'right there'. Ms Joan even text me to warn us of the 'red flagged' beaches. I felt that she genuinely cared and we weren't just renters to make money off of.

I'm already scoping out dates for our trip this year and I plan on staying right here again. The only difference this year is that we're bringing our sons BFF with us!!

The Perfect Place To Relax

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from spending 6 days in Gulf Shores making this lovely condo our temporary home. The Burke's have equipped their property with everything necessary for their guest's comfort and the decor is very relaxing with a simple elegance. Being so close to the pool and a short walk to the beach completed everything we needed for a stress free vacation. The Gulf Shores area has such a peaceful small town feel and the southern hospitality was evident everyplace we went. We will definately return and recommend Gulf Shores and the Seahorse rental to all our traveling friends. Thank You Joan and James for being so accommodating.

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I took a trip with his brother and his girlfriend for their Birthdays. We only stayed Friday- Sunday, but it was perfect. We loved the area and the place was decorated and furnished cute. Mrs Joan was so helpful and very easy to work with. Thanks so much for the stay. We will be back.
