About Carl and Rita

I have a few different properties at the beach but this is my favorite because of convenience and out of the main flow of traffic from the beach but still close enough to be there in less than five minutes. I live in Gadsden, Al and have coached high school football for over thirty years as well as a High School Administrator.

Carl and Rita purchased this condo in 2011

Why Carl and Rita chose Gulf Shores

We love Dolphin Villas for ease in parking, the wooded lot behind for balcony privacy, the large pool area. A nice quiet place and a short drive or walk to the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Right in the middle of gulf shores and the ease of access to all locations beach, shopping, eating and entertainment is the best from Dolphin Villas.

We will stay again

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a wonderful stay, with no stress, beautiful condo, and great price. Stay here. Very clean, and affordable. I met Rita and Carl while we were on vacation, and you really do leave feeling like you have gained friends. They are very helpful with places in town to go and do. Any questions at anytime they respond very quickly. I intend on going back to Gulf shores every year and I will stay here every time. you are about 5 minutes away from the beach, and away from all the heavy traffic. They have a pool right on sight. Walking distance from many local shops.

Home away From Home Condo

  • 5 of 5

Rita and Carl were a pleasure to talk to for accommodating my last minute booking. They are very responsive and answered all my questions through the entire stay. The condo is located just five minutes away from the beach, a comfortable amount of distance away from the crowds and heavy traffic. The area was quiet and a nice walking distance from Walmart, McDonalds, and Winn-Dixies. A nice distance from the waterpark, mini golf areas, and zoo!n The condo itself was very clean and spacious with a good amount of kitchen utensils provided for cooking and eating! Everything worked nicely at the stay, the wifi was fast. I highly recommend staying here for both couples and families, it's like your own apartment. If you can, try getting an upstairs room! We were downstairs so we had neighbors that would be a little noisy shuffling furniture around and walking heavy at night. I received my security deposit back within the same day of leaving. I definitely intend on staying here again, I advise anyone else to do the same! Rita and Carl will set you up to a very enjoyable, homey stay.

LOVE this condo and the owners are FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Dolphin Villas many times, but this was our first stay at Rita and Carl's condo.. it will not be our last! The condo was very welcoming and so charming! Rita and Carl are the NICEST people to work with-just so kind and caring. My family cannot wait to come back and stay again and again! The condo is well stocked and very clean. The fenced in deck overlooks beautiful trees which makes it so peaceful to sit out and enjoy. I would certainly recommend staying in this lovely place. Thank you Rita and Carl for being such a blessing! We will be back SOON.
