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.

Amazing condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun on our girls getaway and this was the perfect condo for 3 of us. It was VERY clean and we loved that the kitchen was fully stocked with everything that you would need to cook! Linda was awesome to work with and she ended up being there the same weekend as us and came to our condo and checked on us! I love that she cares so much for her renters as most places we go don’t do that for us. The only thing we suggest is adding a couple of lights to the bedroom as it was hard for all 3 of us to get ready in the bathroom since the bedroom was so dark.

Can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean, convenient, and quiet. It's just a short walk to the beach and was the perfect size for the two of us. The owner is great to work with and checked in occaisionally to make sure everythihng was going well. We would definitely reccommend this to our friends. Actually, we already have and they hope to go with their 2 small children.

The pool and lagoon are nice and there are several things to do on site if the wind is too strong at the beach.

Nice little home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable space for our family. Beautiful view of the gulf from the balcony. Short walk to the beach. Quiet area of the shoreline. Loved having a washer and dryer in the unit. The pullout sofa could use a new mattress, but otherwise things were great. Look forward to returning to the gulf soon.

Owner's Response: So glad y'all loved the condo and had a great time. Thanks for letting us know about pull-out bed mattress. I contacted Beachside Furniture and purchased a new one and it is being delivered tomorrow. Hope y'all can come back soon.

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.
