About Ray and Teal Haven

Ray and Teal live in Ooltewah, TN, it is 2 miles from the Chattanooga city limits. We have lived in our home for 22 years and enjoy being close to the Chickamauga Lake. We have a wonderful cleaning/maintenance couple that live in Gulf Shores that are available for any needs our guests have.

Ray and Teal Haven purchased this condo in 2008

Why Ray and Teal Haven chose Gulf Shores

We have vacationed in most areas of Florida, South Carolina and Alabama. For many years we returned to the Keys, St.Augustine, Tampa, Destin, Panama City, ect. We started going to Gulf Shores about 8 years ago and fell in love with the area. We knew that this was the place we wanted to return to year after year.

What makes this condo unique

When we first entered this 10th floor condo, we fell in love with it. The balcony was probably the selling point. It was one of the largest balconies overlooking the Gulf that we have ever stayed in. We furnished it with Hampton Bay table and chairs, plus two chaise lounges. When we cooked in the kitchen, we still had a beautiful view of the ocean. The privacy of this condo is very unique. You are not surrounded by high rises and when you look to the left, nothing but State Park. The Security staff are always available to help our guests and closely monitor the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised to how close we were to the beach. Thank you so much for such a wonderful vacation. We will be back.

Fantastic Location and View

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for January and February. The extra large deck had really comfortable furniture, and even when the temperatures were chilly, it was nice on the deck which blocked the North wind. Great view of sunrise and sunset. The owners were helpful and easy to work with. We've stayed in the area three different times, and this was the best!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We want our guests to enjoy the condo as much as we do and strive to ensure you are completely satisfied with your stay. The large balcony is a favorite, no matter what the weather offers. Also, the sunrise and sunset is priceless. Looking forward to hearing from you again for a future stay. We are so proud to maintain a 5 star rating.

Amazing balcony!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Royal Palms three times and this unit definitely has the best balcony! Not only was the view amazing but the two padded lounge chairs were so comfortable. It was the perfect spot to watch the waves. We comfortably fit a family of five in this unit and it had everything we needed for another great stay in Gulf Shores including a well-stocked kitchen. The owners were extremely helpful and very responsive to questions. Thank you!
