About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2.5 Baths 1150 sq ft, (Sleeps 6)

Two story townhouse on the beach! No high rise buildings on either side of complex. West side is an empty lot, then a small development and then another empty lot! Why are we telling you this? Because we hate crowded beaches. We looked up and down the beach for QUIET, low density, relatively un-crowded beaches. WE FOUND IT HERE! No beach service with lines of chairs and umbrellas to wade through.....and either sit behind the line, or sit in front of someone else. We furnish your chairs and umbrellas FREE. Also included is use of a BBQ Grill with chairs and a table in your own private area...NO SHARED GRILLS HERE.

Gulfside Townhomes are approximately 1150 sq. feet of living area, two bedrooms and two and one half baths. We have two balconies, one off the living area, the other off the master bedroom. Enjoy drinks and dinner on your private balcony. Enjoy the use of wireless internet, even on the balconies. Three TV's all with DVD players, one in each bedroom. Pillow Top mattresses in both bedrooms. Hotel quality linens, all new! Email or call us for more information. We love this place....we think you will also. Call today for reservations!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I live in Opelousas, La and I am the Executive VP of Gaiennie Lumber Industrial Products Division. I have been there since 1977. Point of me telling you this is that I am a long term focused person. I run the rentals of our beautiful townhome the same way. We are focused on long term satisfaction. Half of our renters are repeat clients because they know they can depend on me to be accessible 24/7 and willing to answer any questions or service problems that may occur. We don't have many but just in case IF we do we have a full service staff on the ground in Gulf Shores to respond. We've never had to use it before but we contract with a AC repair company that handles and responds to service calls 24 hours a day. We keep our place clean and neat and now we are upgrading the tech end. We have placed Hi Def TV's with Blue Ray DVD's in two rooms and a DVR on the TV in the living area. By Spring we will be switching to our own WIFI network instead of the complex network so that our smart tv will be able to stream any of your subscription content from home! We will be adding a significant amount of photo's in the spring (rented till then), showing off the complete set of new furniture for the living area. My commitment is to run the best overall rental unit in the complex. I live my commitments and would welcome a phone call from you with any and all questions you may have.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
We wanted something similiar to a beach home but with swimming pool and courtyard in addition to the sand beach. We found it here. Each year families come down and rent multiple units for family reunions. We are family oriented so you aren't going to have to contend with a bunch of drunks running around the complex or around the pool. We have security to handle that sort of thing and Gulfside Townhomes doesn't rent to under 25 unless accompanied by a responsible adult. Before we purchased our unit we rented at several other larger (and pricier) units and on each occasion witnessed either alcohol influenced family altercations or alcohol and testosterone induced brawls. In one beautiful complex we vacationed at our neighbors were a group of young college students with the 'boom box' from hell! They allowed them to run this thing full tilt till 10pm while they smoked and drank beer on the balcony and tossed their cigarette butts in the swimming pool below. We paid $2700.00 for a week at this new high rise tower and had the vacation from hell. We have never had to contend with this at Gulfside. Most folks give the kids the freedom to move about not having to worry about disturbances.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Large pool! We have only 40 units, but our pool is larger and nicer than complexes with 90 or more units. We have a private place to grill, and furnish a nice private grilll with chairs and a table. Walk out of the door down the steps to the vehicle, grill patio, the beach, or the pool. (It's nice to get into a vehicle without having to wait 30 minutes for it to cool below 110 degrees (100% covered parking). We have 2 1/2 baths for convenience. and ocean views from every room! I could go on and on, overall let me just say that we offer the BEST VALUE ON THE BEACH!
