About the property

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

Welcome to our family-friendly, two-bedroom, two-bath condo at Three C's, a 12-unit complex built in 2004. You will enjoy a pool, outside shower, and a reserved parking space. The sugar-white Gulf Shores beaches are just across the street, with beach access via a wooden walkway with sitting area and additional parking one block away on West 13th Street. In this unit, you will enjoy all of the comforts of home: cozy, casual furniture; a touch of beach decor; tile floors in the common area and bathrooms; Berber carpet in both bedrooms; a DVD Library with 3 TV's and DVD players; free Wireless internet; an open layout with living room, dining room, and fully stocked kitchen (includes Dishwasher, Microwave, Coffee-maker, Bagel Toaster, Juicer, Blender, and Ice Cream Freezer) with bar and bar stools; two full-size bathrooms with spacious vanities in both baths. We are considerate of all our guests, including those with allergies--this is a pet-free and smoke-free unit. From the balcony, you can watch the sun set or view the beach and Gulf of Mexico to the south and the Little Lagoon Bay to the north. Enjoy a cook-out at the picnic table/grill area located at the south end of the complex. We are minutes away from many boutiques and souvenir shops; Scoops Ice Cream Shop; The Wharf (shopping, dining, live concerts); Lulu's (Jimmy Buffet's sister's restaurant featured in Southern Living); Sea and Suds, a local favorite with Para-Sailing on the beach below; The Hangout-newly renovated on the beach; Bahama Bob's-another local favorite just a short distance away; a new Tacky Jacks; The Original Oyster House; King Neptune's (featured in Coastal Living); Papa Rocco's (People's Choice Best Pizza in 2010 and Best Raw Oysters for eight years in a row); dolphin cruises; WaterVille USA; the Tanger Outlet Mall and Wolf Bay Lodge about 8 miles away in Foley, and (a few more minutes away) the Pensacola Naval Air Station and Museum--home of the Blue Angels. Pier 33 is close-by for last-minute purchases when you don't want to drive far; Walmart is nearby and lots of souvenier shops, too. There is something for everybody to do; or best of all, just kick back and enjoy the peaceful, relaxed atmosphere. Life really is 'better at the beach'!

Cleaning Service fee is $80 for under 30 days---$100 for 30 days or longer. Fully refundable Damage Deposit is $150 ---$350 for rentals 30 days or longer. Our complex is home to retired couples and occupied frequently by young families who cherish the quiet, peaceful atmosphere, so it is not a place for anybody coming to the area to drink, party, or cause any disturbances. Owners keep a close watch on things for each other, and there are fines for rules violations. We respectfully reserve rentals only to anyone over the age of 25. For special events with large crowds such as spring break, music festivals, concerts, etc. we request that parents or two responsible adults accompany anyone under age 25 for the safety and security of everyone.

Our family includes the parents, three children and their spouses, and ten grandchildren from 2 months old to 9 years old. We all love the beach!

Donna or Scott or Eric purchased this condo in 2007

Why Donna or Scott or Eric chose Gulf Shores

Our families vacationed in this area growing up and our dream was to one day have a vacation home so we could make memories with our children and grandchildren.

This area is quiet and peaceful---away from the congestion, but just a short drive if you want to be in the action! Its the perfect location for a family beach vacation!

What makes this condo unique

West Beach in Gulf Shores is consistently featured in COASTAL LIVING magazine's "Best Beach Vacations'.comments include, '"what sets Gulf Shores apart from other Gulf Coast destinations is the quality of the sand: soft underfoot and ultra-bright white. Summer water temperatures hover at bathtub levels, and gentle waves make the beach safe for even the youngest waders'".

We always enjoy our stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here many times over the last couple of years. We have always enjoyed staying here. It is close to the beach, shopping and great places to eat. The beach House is about 4 blocks away. Great hamburgers there!! The condo is always clean and has everything you will need for your stay. Just bring a bathing suit and your food! Don't forget the sunscreen! That's it! Enjoy!

Family Vacation in Gulf Shores 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great vacation in Gulf Shores this year. The condo #203 Three C's was very accommodating and beautifully decorated. And the owner was exceptionally friendly and helpful. She made sure everything was perfect for our stay. We will treasure many memories of our stay in Gulf Shores. We can't wait to return for more fun in the sun and the sandy beaches of Gulf Shores! So much fun! Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo!!!

Happy Old Folks

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently spent the month of February in #104 of this Condo building. We must say that it was truly a great experience. The heating & air went out our first day there and it took them only 1 day to replace the system. They were fantastic to work with. Easy excess to the beach and all the restaurants you could possibly want. We loved every minute of our trip to Gulf Shores. Thank you
