About the property

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

Updated and clean condo 4/10ths of a mile West of the main intersection on West Beach Blvd. This is one of the few remaining low density, family atmosphere complexes on the beach.

The condo overlooks the beautifully landscaped pool area with chairs, tables, and umbrellas for your comfort and relaxation.

The two bedrooms have a limited view of the Gulf and beautiful white sandy beach. The condo is just one stairway up from the covered parking where your car will be kept out of the hot sun.

The colorful bedrooms have a queen bed in each, and both rooms have large closets.

The kitchen and dinette are well equipped, along with a TV and DVD player in the sitting area. The swimming pool and patio surface were renovated in 2007.

We as owners visit Ocean Reef twice a year to enjoy and keep our condo in pristine condition. We also enjoy the many restaurants and shops withing walking distance of Ocean Reef, in addition to the large outlet mall 8 miles North on Highway 59.

About Owner/Property Manager

We are residents of Holland, Michigan and have been coming to Gulf Shores since 1989. We have always stayed at Ocean Reef because of the great atmosphere and not having to deal with elevators. Now our children and grandchildren continue to come to Ocean Reef on Spring Break.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this condo in 2000

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Alabama

We love the low density, only 45 condo's and a very large beach. It is great coming down one flight of steps to hit the beach or pool or grill your favorite food. We also have covered parking for two cars.

Great location great property everything was very clean and perfect for our stay. Only thing that was not ideal were the children above us running. It was heard loudly in the room and kept us awake.

Awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect -- beachside, first level above covered parking, right next to a dumpster, so the walk to take out trash wasn't bad at all, very easy access to the pool, minutes away from souvenir shops and restaurants. There were spigots everywhere, so cleaning off your sandy feet/items was always a breeze. The condo itself was very nice. Full kitchen, table, and bar seating. Living room was roomy and with enough comfortable seating for everyone to enjoy a movie night! Both bedrooms have balcony access with a partial beach view. I would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying in our condo and for your kind words. We enjoy the condo and its surroundings as well. Ocean Reef is one of the very few that has the benefit of easy access to the condo without spending time on an elevator.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

We planned a last minute trip to Ocean Reef and had a great time. It is very well equipped with kitchen ware and utensils. I was impressed! Loved the pool area and of course the beach was awesome! The guy renting the beach chairs was very attentive and always ask if we needed anything. It was a plus that the unit had beach chairs too so we didn't have to take ours!

The beds were comfortable and although small rooms we had plenty of space. I will definitely keep this place in mind for future trips!

Best Location in Gulf Shores

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week before Memorial Day, just after the end of a big music festival. We were concerned that the beach would be crowded and filled with rowdy kids but it was almost all cleaned up by Monday and we enjoyed the un-crowded beach and Bill's by the Beach for lunch every day is only steps away. The condo is very cozy and close to beach. Pool nice and grills for cookout's of fresh fish awesome! There was some noise from upstairs neighbors but did not extended into the late evening so things were quiet by 11 PM. Condo has all amenities and even had coffee. Easy to work with the owner and check out procedures printed and left on counter were easy to follow. All cleaning supplies in condo and dishwasher for dishes. Cleaning deposit was returned very quickly and owner replied to all inquiries timely. We will definitely be back.
