About Ricky Beale

Ricky Beale (owner) standing on the balcony of this 4th floor condo at Surfside Shores. This is my favorite place to be. I live in Illinois and had always wanted a beach condo. Now I have three units at this complex and I enjoy renting them to people like you. I've traveled the world and this is one of the most beautiful peaceful places you'll ever visit.

Ricky Beale purchased this condo in 2003

Why Ricky Beale chose Gulf Shores

Hi! I live in the midwest but have always loved the beach. Since I worked for United Airlines I traveled the world and always wanted a beachfront condo. When I first discovered this 32 mile stretch of soft sugary white sand beach in Gulf Shores AL I knew I had found my piece of paradise. Gulf Shores is a resort town unlike most because it is not very crowded... but there is still a wide variety of entertainment,activities, sports,wonderful shopping, and restaurants. The people here are friendly and laid back. It's just the most wonderful place to visit or vacation as often as possible. We'd love to have you as our guests!

What makes this condo unique

This condo is RIGHT ON the beach. No long walks to get there. You can always hear the waves crashing on the shore unless the doors are closed...and almost every day you'll see blue water and blue skies. Many days you can see schools of Dolphins performing as they swim past near the shore. It's always great to wake up and sit on the private balcony to enjoy breakfast or just do nothing. If you forget something you are within walking distance of Pier 33 or if you have a need for a burger you can walk down to Bahama Bob's. Otherwise you can stay put at the condo all week and just enjoy the sites, the beach, the pool and the private balcony.

More than Satisfied!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo 1/12/08 to 2/9/08. I am a very picky person when it comes to staying at places like this!! In fact I am a clean freak!! This condo was extremely clean and well maintained. It is decorated so nicely - very tropical:) I loved that the bed has french doors that also go out onto the big balcony, as from the living room also. Everynight we would open 1 door and listen to the gulf. Boy do we miss that!!! The views are incredible from the balcony. The location can't be beat. It is 1 mile from 59, where most of the resturants and stores are, yet where the condo is, it's very quiet and not nearly as busy and crazy if you go more east. Also, Ricky, the owner, is so helpful and kind. I feel like we've know her for years. I promise you won't be sorry if you rent this condo. It's perfect in every way:)

We loved our stay! The location of this condo is great! The condo is small and has lots of beach area which made the beach in-front of this condo less crowded then others. Also with two large pools and two small pools they were never crowded. Some of the best restaurants are only a short drive! Would highly recommend Acme (just a few minutes away) and Gulf Shores Steamer at Orange Beach (15-20 minute drive). Bahama Bob's was good too and about a 10 minute walk down the beach.

My 4 daughters and I really Enjoyed our stay at this Condo!! It was very nice and clean and the location was great!! The view from the balcony was just perfect. I enjoyed sitting there watching people on the beach and the swimming pool which was just below me. Would recommend it to my friends if they were going to Gulf Shores.
