Reviewer Comments:

Overall, we enjoyed the location very much. Liked the layout of the condo for 3 couples. Very comfortable. But very disappointed the two main tv's were inoperable (Master remote had no batteries, and just couldn't figure out why living room tv wouldn't come on). We called the phone no. on the paperwork under "Assistance" - Left a message but no response. The kitchen could use more cooking tools. And last, but not least, we were greeted with dog poop on the floor in the bunk bed room.

Great place for families with pets.

  • 5 of 5

Was the perfect place to stay, away from all the chaos and noise of the beach. The condo was perfect, more then enough room for our family of 5 plus 2 dogs, everyone had their own space-no arguing over TVs and bathrooms (a big plus with 2 teenager girls). It had everything we needed for our stay, including a great view to sit and drink coffee in the morning. Would definatly recommend this place to anyone.

Another wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home away from home has become a tradition for my family! The fresh paint and new furniture was a wonderful surprise. There are so many things that have kept us returning every year. The children love fishing off the pier and when it got too hot, they went swimming in the pool! The unit is large enough that we were all able to move freely inside without getting in each others way. This year there were 6 adults and 6 children that stayed, and everyone had a comfortable place to sleep. Also, Paula and Sundai are wonderful ladies that are easy to talk to and deal with. We look forward to our 5th stay at Bay Jon I next summer.

Perfect place and we had a great time there.

  • 5 of 5

The place was just like it was described and even better. We took my our two adult children and their dog with us and this place was the perfect place. All three couples had their own room and bathroom which made it easy to enjoy our time together or have a moment to escape and just read in our own room. The washer and dryer made this such an easy trip to pack for, we were able to pack lite and do laundry as we wanted. The kitchen was perfectly stocked and everything worked well. We loved being so close to the beach but also loved the pool and hot tub at the condo. We are not fishermen but we still enjoyed the dock and we actually were able to watch the dolphins swim by almost every day.

We are from Michigan so we visited just before our kids went back to college and just after the students returned to school in Alabama, so the beach and area was pretty empty. That was very nice. The condo is not on the beach so we were worried about the location but this place is in the perfect location. We were only 10 minutes from the beach, 5 minutes from Walmart and could quickly get to any shop around the area. There is a bar/restaurant/store about 50 yards from the condo. It looks a little scary and was limited on what they had but every time we needed something we walked there and they had it so that was very convenient.

We actually had car problems as soon as we arrived and had to put our car in the shop for the week and get a rental. Rivera Tire was an honest place to have my car repaired at and was not far from the condo. All in all I would highly recommend the condo and Gulf2Beach vacation rentals.

Thanks for making this a great vacation experience.

Great relaxing condo with amazing sunset

  • 5 of 5

We visit Gulf Shores every other summer and this was our first time to stay on the bay instead of the beach. It was so relaxing and the sunset was amazing. The bay is beautiful and so quiet and peaceful. We always eat at Lulus, Lamberts, and The Shrimp Basket and they were all so close. We added Hopes cheesecake to our MUST DO list this trip. It has Cheesecake Factory beat by a mile! Our 8 year old grandson loves The Track bumper boats, gocarts, and mini golf. Everything was so convenient. The condo has a pool and gym which were never crowded and we made good use of both. Covered parking was a great extra. WE will be back and will recommend this place to our family and friends! Take kids on the Fun Dolphin Boat on Canal Road. The watergun fight before returning was a highlight of the trip after seeing lots of dolphins up close!

Owner's Response: Richard, What a nice review. We are so glad that you were able to experience being on The Bay. You are right, the sunsets are the best. Sounds like you hit some of the favorite restaurants at the beach along with Great Cheese Cake at Hopes. They are the Best. We look forward to your next trip and your next Big Watergun Fight. Don't wait another year, just come on back and stay again real soon. Paula, Sundai, Judy & Mary The Gulf2beach Team

A Special Christams with family

  • 4 of 5

This was a great December get away for our family Christmas visit. We had one family from Louisiana and two families from Georgia. My sister and I arrived to find a beautiful condo, very spacious and clean, covered parking, with a wonderful view. It was just the two of us for the first three weeks. The rooms were all decorated and attractive. Of course we added our own Christmas touches everywhere. The kitchen/ living /dining room area were very comfortable. The master bedroom is quite spacious, as well as the attached bath area with walk-in closet. The other two bedrooms with their own bathrooms were also quite spacious. We bought groceries and cooked our meals every day, only ate out when we did not want to stop shopping and site seeing. The view from the screened-in porch is so peaceful! We enjoyed the sunsets and, of course, the pelicans, cranes, blue herons and dolphins. We enjoyed fishing off the pier, caught some fish which were feed to “Old Henry” our daily visiting blue heron and even quite a few crabs which we cooked to make seafood gumbo. There is much scenery along the Gulf Shores beaches with lots to do and see, as well as numerous restaurants to enjoy.

Paula was a pleasure to work with. She made the reservation process easy; check in and out was absolutely effortless. Bay John is a great alternative to the beachfront hotels and condos. All the snowbirds from up north staying there were so friendly. We will be back hopefully next year! Thank you, Paula, for making our family outing one to remember!
