About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Teresa and I take pride in offering you a place to enjoy your vacation that is a freshly decorated, comfortable, affordable unit on the beach side of the road. Let the sound of the surf lull you to sleep and wake you in the morning's. While we are NOT direct Beachfront, we have a side view of the Beach and are just steps away from the sugary white sands of the Gulf. See our photo taken from our balcony.

Take a stroll on the beach and enjoy world class tropical sunsets accentuated by the flight of pelicans and other seabirds. Take advantage of fabulous fresh seafood year round and either cook in your own kitchen or eat out at a wide variety of friendly, casual dress family oriented restaurants. So much to do in the area or just play on the beach daylight 'til dark. We love our special place and want to share it with you. Come be our guest.

About Jeff Gilchrist

Hello, our names are Jeff and Teresa, we were born and raised in a little town in southwest Washington. After 23 years in the Army, Teresa and I decided to retire. We have always wanted a special place to vacation and we found it here. We are simple people that like to enjoy life and share it with others. We offer up our home so that others can enjoy the white sands and warm weather that Gulf Shores has to offer; it's only steps away, take that first step.

Jeff Gilchrist purchased this condo in 2010

Why Jeff Gilchrist chose Alabama

We chose Gulf Shores because of the Florida like beaches and weather without the Florida like crowds. There are plenty of things to do here, Golf, Fish, Waterpark,...etc but you still get that small town feel and the folks here are very friendly.

What makes this condo unique

1st floor unit, very close to the beach and area attractions.

Gulf shores spring break vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo met out needs very well. The price was reasonable and it was in good shape inside. Some of the pans were quite old but we understand you can get bad clients that don't take care of stuff also. Overall we had a great time and will consider booking here again.

Great time, beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Thank you! We loved Gulf Shores, it was our first time there. The condo was very close to the beach. The beach was beautiful! We had everything we needed. Comfortable beds. Washer and dryer worked great. The air worked great, which is s big plus since it was so hot. Would recommend staying here.
