About Peter Giroux

We are a group of folks who take a lot of pride in our condo. As we also travel for business we understand and appreciate how wonderful it is to get somewhere that is is well furnished, well outfitted and clean.

Peter Giroux purchased this condo in 2003

Why Peter Giroux chose Alabama

Our condo sits directly across the street from the beach and local state park. A short walk or drive across the street and the sand is in your toes, salt air in your nose and the sound of the waves in your ears. There is a Publix within walking distance and numerous good restaurants in the area to keep you eating at a new one every night for a year. We are flexible on Reservations, rates are competitive, our process easy, your stay fun and relaxing.

What makes this condo unique

This condo sits in the middle of the Alabama Gulf coast but only 20 minutes to the Naval Air Station in Pensacola. Gulf Shores is right next door, Fort Morgan 20 minutes away as well. Most everything is 5 to 10 minutes away and for those who do not want to leave the condo other than to go to the beach, our kitchen is well equipped.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Bright, cheerful and a relaxing trip

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late but it was easy to get in. Condo was spotless and while very hot outside the condo was cool when we got there. Lots of towels, dishes & cookware ( we only used them twice, ate out the rest ). Beach is across the street, a short walk and we found a state beach further east that was fantastic and uncrowded. Everything worked, even the stereo system, great local classic rock station. A great stay, just too short.

Didn't feel clean!!

  • 1 of 5

I washed bathroom rugs when we got there didn't look like they had been washed in a long time. Condo smelled like smoke. Mattress in 2nd bedroom was horrible. It sunk in when laid on . Noise on balcony was bad from traffic. I wore my shoes the whole time because floors weren't clean.

Owner's Response: Amanda WOW, our first bad review in 13 years, thank you though for taking the time to send it. You and I spoke when you got there about the smoke, ours is a non smoking condo and we are very clear about that but we have no control if someone leaves a sliding door open and someone below is smoking on their porch, some smell can get in. I asked you if you wanted the cleaning folks to come back and an air purifier for your stay and you declined the offer. You also told me you were leaving the next day but stayed the entire time. Our cleaning crew, while not perfect keeps our condo very clean, as all our previous guests have mentioned in their reviews. Not easy to accomplish as we often have as many as 3 different families come to stay in a week during our very busy summers. In reference to the mats, they are washed or replaced on a regular basis as are the mattresses. That one mattress on the bottom of the bunk bed takes a beating and is replaced every few years. Not sure if you were aware but someone in your party broke the bunk bed, our cleaning crew and the guest after sent us pictures. Amanda, I also have a very sensitive nose and in the 14 years of owning our condo have never smelled smoke in it. My partner and I also take cleanliness very seriously. I am sorry you had a tough stay, I am sure it was made more difficult by the passing of your brother in law. We take pride in our condo and spend considerable time and money to maintain it. Lastly, our condo sits across the street from the beach, and during the peak times of summer, beach traffic is heavy. We have no control over that. If you do not want to be subject to that I would recommend you look at staying on the back bay for 3 times as much or on the beach for up to 4 times as much. Thank you again for taking the time to send in the review. Thx peter

Great Location, Nice View, Very Accomodating Owner

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our experience was good. The condo was exactly as pictured. Very nice and clean. Great view of the beach/ocean across the highway from the 3rd floor (although the traffic was a bit noisy when sitting on the balcony). Unfortunately, during our stay, a sign was put up that a new condo is going in on the beach right directly across from the Grand Carribean which will most likely block the ocean view (bummer). The pool was nice and a hit with our kids. Great location to Gulf Shores, restaraunts, shops, etc. The reason I rated the condo 4 stars instead of 5 stars, was due to the inconvenience of the construction/re-paving of the beach parking lot across the street from the condo. We wanted to be able to drive our car over and park so we wouldn't have to lug all of our beach stuff. It wouldn't have been that bad but they blocked off the boardwalks to the beach and locked down the bathrooms as well so no facilities at the beach. This made for a long walk with all of our stuff, my 2 children and my elderly parents. I understand that this was out of the owners control, but since the beach was the main reason for our vacation, it really was a major inconvenience. And this was a holiday weekend. You would think the construction could've been completed during the winter months. Since we only visit the beach every few years, we will most likely not stay at this location again, however, the condo was nice and is a great spot.

Owner's Response: Lori Thank you for staying with us. Yes, the State beach across the street has been a challenge. Sadly the employees of the contractor went on strike earlier this year ( park was to be finished in April ) holding up the opening. The upside was the beach area was quieter, the walk across the street a pain. Sadly the state of Alabama decided to tear up Orange Beach this year with road work and "upgrades" and new buildings are going up all over. Please consider a stay in OB during off season, September or later, crowds are gone, area quieter and plenty of easy beach access. thx peter
