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

Great location with wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I usually spend our anniversary week in Destin but decided to switch it up this year. We were greeted to a very nice anniversary gift basket from the owner (Linda). She was very helpful with tips on where to go for our anniversary dinner. We really like the location of the condo because it is on the west side which is the much more laid back and residential side of gulf shores. It was a really short drive to all the restaurants/bars we wanted to go to. The outside of the complex looks a little dated but the condo is newly remodeled and very nice. I really like the location of the complex. It is directly on a beautiful lagoon with two fishing piers with benches which offers some of the most beautiful sunsets I have seen. The complex offers there own private beach access. Like most condos, we were concerned that there may be some noise so we brought a box fan with us and did not have any noise issues at night. If you are a pool person, the complex offers a really nice pool with lush vegetation and palm trees.

Whenever we decided to go back to Gulf Shores/Orange beach we will return to this place.

My wife and I are winding down our four month stay here. It has been wonderful.

The condo is beautifully decorated. The south facing balcony is really nice. The condo having its own Wifi is a definite plus as the public Wifi is hit or miss. We streamed Netflix with no problems.

Linda was a great host. She had great suggestions for where to eat and what to do.

The TV in the living room went out while we were here, even though it looked like a newer flat screen. Linda had a new TV for us the first thing the following morning. We appreciate the quick response.

The staff at GSSR was friendly and helpful. They do a great job keeping everything looking nice. The beach is across the street but with the private boardwalk access that was not an issue.

Thanks Linda. We had a great stay.

The Best on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stay in Linda's condo every year for our beach vacation because it's the best on the beach! We were pleasantly surprised to see the new kitchen! So nice! And we loved the patio with the lighted palm tree, perfect for sitting out at night and enjoying the stars with a cold drink. The location is perfect and the amenities mean we almost never have to get in the car. The beach is right across the little road and the boardwalk makes it easy to get all of our gear settled in the sand. Having the lagoon and the pool in our backyard is great. We love fishing off the pier. Everyone at GSSR is so nice and friendly. Thanks again, Linda for a great week!

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

we had such a great time. Everything was perfect, weather, the view, the beach, and most of all the condo. My wife kept saying how perfect everything was, decor and just the warmth of the condo. We will be back.

Wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stay in this condo year after year and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. I love the newly remodeled bathroom as well as the nice furnishings and decorating throughout "The Palms". The second floor location is very convenient (no waiting for an elevator- even though one is located near the condo) with quick access to the pool and the beach by the stairs. I also LOVE the luxury of having the private internet connection in the condo (not all of the units offer this) I highly recommend this condo. It is a great place to stay and enjoy the beach as well as all the amenities the development has to offer. Oh, and its on a lagoon too. Love that!

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.
