Cute Clean

  • 5 of 5

Everything is exactly as described. The Owner makes everything easy and accessible. It is clean and home away for home. We did not stay in the room a lot but chose the beach for most of our day. Its not a far walk at all. Across the highway and down the path.

My daughter had a few issues with the sliding glass door and window covering. She is a College kid what did I expect. (kidding) She is also likes the windows covered at night. There were a few slats missing from the blind for the door and it would not cover the door completely. I handled it :) and told her to be sure and dress in the bathroom or bedroom. ITs a kitchen/living room

Other than that it was all good. A perfect three day getaway and we found some of our Texas friends down on the beach. So it was a Win Win.

I would do this again. It had a complete kitchen. I even cooked one night. Everything was fresh and clean.

Thanks Linda & Brian for a great last minute trip!

Rained out from the beach at a VBRO property FOUR YEARS in a ROW

  • 3 of 5

The Connolly's condo was a charming one-bedroom, one bath, one closet, kitchenette/living room/great room done in a beach style. It was comfortable for our family of three with two double beds in the single bedroom.

The Connolly family was very helpful. We arrived just after dark on Monday, June 19th, having trouble finding the condo on our GPS. A quick phone call to the Connolly's got us there quickly as we were roughly a half mile away.

The condo needs some maintenance. The sliding glass door's screen will not move (off track? broken roller?). The vertical blind on the glass doors is especially problematic: it is not wide enough to fit the door to begin with, but it also is missing one slat from each end, making us feel as though we were in a fish bowl at night, easily visible by others in the condos nearby. Then another slat fell off as we were leaving to go to the beach, and it was not able to be remounted due to a rip through its mounting hole. Finally, the bath mat is needing to be replaced, as it is smelling both moldy and chlorine-y when one enters the bathroom.

This next part has no bearing on the condo itself, but needs to be said. We have rented VBRO properties in Gulf Shores, Mobile, and Myrtle Beach SC, but in EVERY CASE we had our entire vacation rained out for the last four years! We had either 5 out of 6 days in pouring rain, or 6 out of 7 in pouring rain, depending upon the year, and if memory serves. This time we had booked only four days, but we had heavy rain on Tuesday into Wednesday morning, leaving 6 inches of rain in the condo parking lot. The Connolly's were nice enough to have us move our car closer to the main road for an unused parking space with less water. At 6 a.m. on Wednesday, a flash flood warning was posted and a waterspout came ashore just east of us in Destin, FL. We packed up and left immediately, a wise decision, as meteorologists were calling for 10 inches of rain by Friday. Our vacation consisted of 30 hours in the condo, half of which were sleeping time, and 25 minutes on the beach. Needless to say, I will never attempt to go to the beach again using a pre-booked property such as VBRO. Instead, I will arrange a "spur of the moment" beach vacation when the weather is predicted to be good.

Owner's Response: Jon, I've been renting my two condos since 2004. Your review is the longest and worst I've ever received and I'm sure that anyone reading all the reviews for this condo will realize you are simply blaming me for the fact that this area experienced record breaking rain during your stay. Regarding your three maintenance issues; Bathmats are laundered before each guest arrives so I'm not sure what you were smelling. The sliding screen is locked in place during the summer and unlocked when it's cool enough to turn off the A.C. The blind on the door is an issue. Due to the use and abuse it gets the slats can fall off. I keep extras in the closet and all it would have taken on your part is to have called me and I would have been more then happy to come down a replace the slats. In the future please keep in mind the financial harm you do to a person or company if you award them less than 5 stars. I'm not saying every review should be a 5 star but in this case a 3 star review was unfair. Brian

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Super cute and clean little condo. End unit which is nice to not have neighbors on one side. Best part was the assigned covered parking spot. It was delightful to not go out to a car that had been roasting in the sun all day. Quick little walk over to the beach and the pool there had the warmest water I've ever been in, lol. We too heard a little more from the upstairs neighbors than we would have liked, but all in all it was fine and the perfect size for our family of 3. I also had the pleasure of meeting the owner and actually speaking with his son on the phone. Extremely nice and friendly people. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for Family Visit

  • 4 of 5

This condo was clean, well-stocked, and in a great location. Walking across the road to the beach was no problem, even with four kids in-tow. Everything we wanted to visit in Gulf Shores was within a 10 minute drive. The kids loved the pool, and the kitchen was very convenient for us. The only reason we don't give this a "5" star rating was the sleep in the living room; the fold-out couch was a bit uncomfortable, and the people staying upstairs kept late hours and would wake us with the constant sliding of the patio doors. However, beds in the bedroom were comfortable. Would recommend and would visit again!

Owner's Response: Brittany, Sorry to hear about the noisy people above you. Those units have a lot of insulation between them so noise is generally not an issue. I totally agree with you pull out sofa beds are not as comfortable as a regular bed and there is a limit as to how thick a mattress can be put on it. I'm happy you and your family enjoyed your trip to Gulf Shores and I hope we'll see you back again. Brian

This condo was perfect for a long weekend escape! Everything was very clean and the space was just what we needed for three adults. We loved being able to walk to the beach without loading up the car. We definitely hope to be back!
