About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

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.

Great Condo!

Great 2nd floor condo, nice view of the gulf from the patio and the pool from the back. Everything you need is provided and the owners are a dream to work with. Hopefully we will be back next year!

The condo unit was very clean and in great condition. A little cramp

  • 3 of 5

The condo unit was very clean and in great condition. A little cramped for four people, especially the bathroom. My only real complaint was the paper thin walls made it difficult to get a good night's sleep. Also the pictures made it appear to have a beach view from the balcony when it was a parking lot. The unit owners were fantastic to work with.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a great time, but are very disappointed in some of your comments, as we love our condo and want all of our guests to enjoy it as much as we do. We don't understand your complaints as the walls are sheet rock over concrete block.; the web page description states that our condo is on the second floor and across the street from the beach, so an expansive view would not be expected and there are no words or photos in the description that indicate otherwise. Also, the size of our condo is specified on the web page and is about average for a one-bedroom unit.

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.
