About Rhiannon McGee

Hello, I've had this property since 2002 and try to improve it each year. I'm ex-Air Force enlisted/officer and now an active duty Army Officer. I'm also a real estate broker in Alabama. I love to travel, see new places and meet new people. I also manage my mom's condo in Gulf Shores (#141545) and my 2br/2ba condo in downtown Gatlinburg (#141532). We keep our properties well maintained, so you have a great vacation and visit our condos as repeat guest. Just check out the guestbook for testimonials. Thanks.

Rhiannon McGee purchased this condo in 2002

Why Rhiannon McGee chose Alabama

Awesome direct ocean view as soon as you walk in the place. It's right next to Sea-n-Suds, Waffle House across the street, and short walk to Hooters, Pink Pony Pub and the Hangout. Hard to beat this location and view. Plus with a low density complex (59 units), there's plenty of room on our 200 feet of beachfront white sugar sand. It literally so fine it squeaks when you walk on it, and doesn't get too hot in the summer since it's white. I've traveled many beaches and haven't seen any better beaches.

What makes this condo unique

The ocean sounds are so relaxing. Many guests have spotted dolphins swimming as they sat on the balcony. Also, being on the top floor, it's a bit more quiet and peaceful away from other guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments. I just replaced the mattress and box springs in both bedrooms in April/May '08.

Excellent location and price was right! Only complaint was electrical outlets in both bathrooms were non functioning. And for guests staying more than a few days, an extra trash bag and toilet paper would have been nice

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear the outlets were not working after you checked out. When a guest has a maintenance issue and they contact me during their stay, I am able to send someone out there to fix it for them. As for the toilet paper, it is listed that guests need to bring or purchase extra. Again, if you had called, texted, or emailed me I would have gladly sent more your way! Other than those inconveniences, I hope you enjoyed your trip and come back to stay with us again😎

The view is great!

The overall unit is nice with great view and easy access to beach. The only complaint is the beds are uncomfortable and front room is noisy.

Awesome view!!

  • 4 of 5

Great view great location. Only gripe is there were no trash bags, ice maker is really loud, and I had to fix the garbage disposal. As you can see that is all minor issues. Would be a plus if the gulf side bedroom window opened. Would have love to wake up to the sound of the waves.

Great view

  • 3 of 5

Condo is in a great location and has a perfect view of the gulf. The inside of the condo is nice and I found the furniture to be comfortable. We really enjoyed the Gulf Shores area. Upon arrival the air conditioning was not working and both tub drains did not work. This was very frustrating but the owners responded very fast and had both items fixed by the next day.

The complex itself is a bit run down. The pool was very cloudy and by Friday they had closed it for cleaning. Several other items such as garbage shoot were not functioning also.

All in all we had a great time, just some of the issues mentioned cause me to rate lower.
