About Linda Gosa

My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Gulf Shores about 47 years ago. We were right out of college and had only $100 between us. We stayed at the Gulf Shores Motel - right on the beach - in a room that cost $9.00 per night. A lot has changed since then, but we always dreamed of owning our own place at the beach that we could share with other beach lovers.

Many of our guests e-mail photos of themselves and their families enjoying the beach and area activities. We even got one from a lady whose teen-aged daughter photographed her dancing on top of a table at The Hangout. She was celebrating her birthday and it will probably be a favorite memory that mom and daughter will share for their lifetimes.

We have also been fortunate to have a number of honeymooners stay in our condo. They hold a special place in our hearts because they remind us of ourselves.

We hope you will become a member of our extended beach family. We will be delighted to have you.

Linda Gosa purchased this condo in 2004

Why Linda Gosa chose Gulf Shores

Before buying our condo,, we looked at others up and down Beach/West Beach Blvd., but none could match the amenities or location of Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club. The beautiful beach, the fishing piers on Little Lagoon, the lovely courtyard with pool, hot tub, tennis and shuffle courts - all within easy reach - made our decision to buy an easy one. We have owned for almost 14 years and it has been wonderful. The memories that our family has created will last a lifetime. We are delighted to share our condo with others so that they too can have an opportunity to make similar memories

What makes this condo unique

We believe "The Palms" is one of the nicest condos in our complex. The kitchen has been recently updated with granite counter tops, new cabinets and recessed sink. The bathroom was also remodeled recently with new tile, tub, cabinet and hardware. Unlike some units, we have easy access to the internet. We also love the location. An elevator is only a short distance from our front door, but as we are on the second floor, it is often quicker to take the stairs. During the summer months in particular, it is nice not to have to wait for an elevator.

Perfect place for a long weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place was just perfect for me and my two daughters to have a long weekend getaway. It was just enough space for us and having the kitchen set up for cooking allowed us to snack and have breakfasts in the condo without having to get out. The easy access to the beach was just perfect for us. It was great to be able to go back and forth as needed without having to worry about getting in the car and getting sand everywhere. It was so nice to be able to sit out on the patio and enjoy the beach breeze and view. The unit is conveniently located near the center of the condo so you have quick access to the pool and beach. The pool and hot tub were great and never too crowded while we were there. We didn't fish, but the piers were nice to go out and relax. I usually toss and turn but fell right to sleep in the bedroom and the darkening shades were great for us to be able to sleep in. It was also great to have the washer and dryer in the unit so I could wash our clothes rather than heading home with wet and sandy clothes. The owner was super sweet and responsive throughout our reservation, check in, and check out. We were very pleased!

Clean and comfy!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time here. The condo was super clean and easy access to the beach. The complex itself is not as clean as we would have liked but what mattered was that the owner kept the condo in great condition! One thing... the complex itself is not as quiet as we would have liked and kept hearing loud slamming doors every night for a while.

Car: recommended

There is so much to do at Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club that we seldom seek outside entertainment. We like to say that it's more than just a place at the beach, it's more like a summer camp at the beach for kids and their parents. Tennis and shuffle board courts, 2 private, lighted fishing piers, a lovely swimming pool and a baby pool are all on the lagoon side. In the front is West Beach with our private boardwalk and pavilion. We soend days on end fishing, swimming, boogie boarding, looking for shells and sun bathing. It never gets old.
