About Marty Ross

Just a typical family that loves spending time together enjoying sports, camping, and just hanging out! We live in the Dallas, Texas area.

Marty Ross purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Marty Ross chose Gulf Shores

We wanted something in a low-density property with parking directly at the townhouse/condo/apt, on the beach, and conveniently located to all the cool places we love to visit in Gulf Shores.

What makes this townhome unique

The majority of units on this property are owners and stay at their townhomes at least a few times a year. It has a truly unique family-friendly atmosphere and we've made so many new friends since we've owned Gulfside 15.

The complex and its beach are UNCROWDED and just steps away from the beach. And the large L-shaped pool stays cooler in the summer due to multiple depths and late afternoon shade.

The private parking right under the unit and walk inside the townhouse is so much easier than parking lots and elevators!

The unit was is very good shape. The owner was very friendly and responsive. We have a leak as a result of a new air conditioner being installed and repairs were completed within one day.

Great location for family fun....

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Gulf Shores and the townhouse was perfect for our family of seven. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals and the rooms were very spacious. The location was perfect... right off the beach.... and we were surprised to find the townhouse was stocked with everything one would want to take to beach, including boogie boards, chairs, snorkeling equipment and much more. It was a great stay and we will definitely stay there again if we're fortunate enough to return.

The property was the perfect size for our family of 2 adults and 3 teenage boys.

  • 4 of 5

The kids really enjoyed having the bikes and beach/pool toys available. Owners were very quick to respond to issues, responding within a half hour of email sent.

I really enjoyed having the beach and a pool as jellyfish were prevalent during our stay and everyone got mild stings at one point or another, the kids were happy to go to the pool and play while the stings wore off.

Close enough to everything to walk, yet when you were on the beach you would think town was miles away.

We did not use the Murphy bed, but all other beds were very comfortable, space was clean and well kept. Multiple bathrooms made changing from beach to dinner quick and easy. All appliances we used worked well, there were beaters but I never did locate the appliance they go to, and got a bit inventive after putting food in oven before realizing there were no oven mitts. Overall I really have to stretch to come up with a complaint.

If you are a margarita fan, be aware that none of the local places make them and bring your own blender 😜

The other guests and owners at neighboring townhouses were all very polite, most were also families with children which was great for the kids.

We stayed in July, being from Wisconsin everyone asked ‘ohh man wasn’t it too hot’ FYI, the temp was exactly the same back home as it was here only we had a pool and a beach.

We would absolutely stay here again.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this condo. It is well equipped and well maintained. We had everything in the kitchen we needed and throughout the rest of the condo. We did not have any issues but the owner was very responsive when we had a few questions. The storage closet outside was full of beach chairs, beach games, a few bicycles and much more. There was also a charcoal grill. This was our third trip to Gulf Shores but first time to stay in Gulfside Townehomes. We enjoyed the set up of the condos with the pool in the middle. It worked out well for our son and his friend to go swimming and we were able to keep an eye on them without having to go to the pool. We would stay in #15 again!
