Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club is a beautiful resort located on exclusive West Beach among multi-million dollar private residences. It faces the Gulf of Mexico on one side and Little Lagoon on the other. Cross a narrow road and enjoy Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club's 100' of private beachfront with its own pavilion. Or use one of Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club's two piers on the Lagoon side for a day of fishing. If you have a small boat, bring it and use Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club's private launch. Waterfront tennis courts, adult and kiddie pools, shuffleboard and a putting green at Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club offer entertainment for the entire family.

As the sun sets, walk to the end of one of the piers with your favorite beverage in hand and look back at the lighted courtyard of the Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club. Most likely, you’ll join the countless others who have taken in this view and exclaim, 'Wow, Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club really is beautiful!'

About The Owner

My husband and I have always been beach lovers. We spent our honeymoon in Gulf Shores when we right out of college, though we only had $100 between us. We stayed at Gulf Shores Motel and paid $9.00 per night.

Later, we took our three children to the beach at least once each summer. Always on a budget, we often stayed in Laguna Beach, FL in some of the little cottages across the road from the beach. Many of them were quite humble, with well-worn furniture and often featuring little crawling things I'd rather not write about. Still, we wouldn't trade those family times for anything. They are still favorite memories we and our children - now grown - share whenever we get together.

Our family's dream was to own a nice, clean (and uninfested - LOL) beach vacation home in a family-oriented complex. We believe Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club is the perfect place. When we are there, it's as if we have gone to summer camp, rather than just to the beach. There are so many free things to do - swimming, tennis, shuffleboard, fishing, beaching, etc., that we don't have to spend a lot of extra money on entertainment and no one is ever bored.

We feel very blessed to own the beach condo we always dreamed about and to share it with our children and our grandchildren. We would be delighted to share it with you and your family as well.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2002

Why The Owner chose Alabama

We have been coming to Gulf Shores since 1966 and have stayed up and down the beach. Regardless of price, we believe Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club is the best of all - it's more than just vacationing at the beach. It's more like going to a summer camp at the beach - for both kids and adults - there is so much to do.

GSSR is a beautiful resort!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly as described and met all of our needs and expectations. Watching the sunset over the lagoon from the balcony was definitely a plus! Linda was great to work with and even checked in with me to make sure everything was going good. I hope to be booking again for next summer!

Great condo close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four stayed her for several days at the end of July. We loved being right on the lagoon (great view from the balcony towards the water) and being right across the street from the beach. Linda, the host, was very communicative and even checked in on us via email while we were there to make sure everything was ok. The pool was a nice size, although not exceptionally clean. The girls loved the "flip flop" room and we appreciated the convenience of the condo to everything in Gulf Shores. Be sure to pay attention to the fact that you need to bring your own soap (housekeeping provides two tiny hotel type bars in the bathroom), paper towels, toilet paper (we had about half a roll when we got there), dish washer soap. There were plenty of bath towels and wash cloths. It's $20 to park and another $20 to store a kayak if you bring one. They do check to make sure you have a parking pass on your car, so don't forget to have it on the dash or rear view mirror! Overall, we had a wonderful time and would definitely go back!

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

The place was very cozy and met our needs perfectly. Location is on the Lagoon side but just a short walk across the main street to the beach via a private entrance. Our stay was short so we did not get to take advantage of all the amenities offered by the Resort. The staff were very kind and the place was very tidy and well kept. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Great location, cozy

  • 4 of 5

We just got back from our Gulf Shores vacation, and we had a blast! This condo is in a great location and has a great view of the lagoon. There is not a beach view, and you do have to cross the street to get to the beach, but not a long walk at all. It was a perfect fit for my family of four with two bedrooms. The kids had their own twin beds, so they did not have to share a bed.

The condo supplies all of your kitchen needs: utensils, pots, pans, and silverware. The coffee maker was used daily, and the mugs were super cute. I enjoyed a cup of coffee every morning out on the balcony. I was surprised that there were no coffee filters, and we had to go up to Wal-Mart to get some. We did leave the filters we purchased, so hopefully future renters will be able to not worry about that.

There were a few things not stocked in the condo that I was expecting, only because I have rented several times in other cities from HomeAway, and certain things seem to always be stocked at the condos and rent houses. We had to go to Dollar General and purchase trash bags, because after taking the trash out on day 2, we then had no trash bags. I would think that would be something stocked there in the condo. Also, the only rug for the bathroom is a hotel type towel rug. The tile floor got very slippery and sandy, and in my opinion an actual rug would have made it much nicer.

The owner was fabulous, communicated often with us before our arrival and checked in with us during our stay to see if we needed anything. I especially appreciated that the owner emailed us suggestions of places to visit and places to eat. It made planning our trip much easier!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great time. First time we've had a complaint about coffee filters or trash bags. These are one-time use items, so it would be hard to provide enough for there to be some on hand forever. I believe they are listed in the suggestions of "things to bring with you." The cleaning service provides the bath mat, which is washed and cleaned before the arrival of each guest. An actual rug would belong to us and would not be cleaned by our service. Since we live in another city, it would be impossible for us to clean it after each guest, so we have opted for cleanliness. So glad you liked the condo and hope you will come back again.
