A queen-size bed in the master bedroom and twin beds in the second bedroom can accommodate four persons. A foldout sofa in the living room can sleep two more. A dinette table in the kitchen and a table for four on the balcony will provide plenty of eating room for everyone.

A new 40' flat screen TV in the living room and a new flat screen TV in the queen bedroom with a built-in DVD player will provide entertainment for the whole family.

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 Gulf Shores

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.

We had such a wonderful time! The condo is nicely decorated and furnished.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location! We spent our mornings on the lagoon and our afternoons on the beach and never had to get in the car. The condo owner was delightful to work with. She checked on us twice during our stay and gave us great ideas for a rainy day.

We will definitely be back!!

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!

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!
