About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This is a 2BR, 2BA condo located in the laid back beach town of Gulf Shores, AL. It has been recently updated and has all the amenities for a relaxing getaway. Since it is located on the first level, an elevator is not required to access this property!

Our unit has recently been upgraded with new cabinets, granite countertops throughout, new appliances and tile floors.

We have a property management company in Gulf Shores that provides check in/out services, parking passes, and handles any maintenance or repair issues. We do not allow pets or smoking inside the unit.

Sandpiper is a low density (48 units) complex with a breezy, tropical design which includes mature palm trees and barbeque grills in the pool / courtyard area of the property. The property does not have a long boardwalk over the dunes and the pool is literally steps from the beach.

Sandpiper is handy to shopping and great restaurants as well.

Once you stay here, you will never go back to a high rise!

About Sonya Bueche

We are a family of four who love to travel. Our favorite destinations are places with great beaches. This is why we love Gulf Shores, Al. It has some of the prettiest beaches and sand and we are comparing it against some of the most prestigious beaches in the world.

Sonya Bueche purchased this condo in 2005

Why Sonya Bueche chose Alabama

We chose Gulf Shores, Al. because we have going there since we were young and it is only 3 1/2 hours from our home. It has some of the prettiest beaches and sand in the world.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is unique in that it is a low rise complex with a family atmosphere. The pool and beach are very close to all the units and most have a beach view.

The accommodations were nice. There were some lights burned out and no oven mitts for cooking, but neither of those ruined our stay. Just wanted to pass that along to owner. First time visiting in October and we'll probably do it again. The layout of the complex made for crazy sound control (neighbors loud and reverberated in courtyard) but managed that too. Would recommend to others

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. There was a little problem when we first arrived but was taken care of instantly. The condo was very nice and clean and so convenient to everything, the elevator, parking, pool, beach, and shopping. We had a small group with just my sister, 2 nieces and myself, but a couple of us have knee problems but was able to go to the beach without any problem as close as it was. It is large enough to sleep up to 6 people in beds and the baths were both nice size. We go down to the beach every year on a ladies vacation and was very pleased with our stay here. The only thing I would say that might be a problem for others was that the kitchen and living room were kind of small. They were large enough for us but if you planned on doing much cooking for a larger group are stayed in and needed more sitting space it might not work for you. But it was great for us. Thanks for sharing your place with us.

A very nicely apponited Condo

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at Sandpiper for many years. This is the first time in this unit. Unit is on first floor and right next to the stairs and elevator, which is very convenient! Unless you can get an opposite end unit, you don't see much ocean from any of these units. We enjoyed the unit, very comfortable and nicely appointed and clean! Would stay here again. One downside... Don't arrive early because Poole and Associates will not let you check in early. That became very apparent, plus they have a sign stating "Do not ask to check in early". We have rented through Bender Realty for 17 years and if your unit is ready, they will let you check in.

Cute little place

  • 2 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. Would have loved for the place to have a keyless entry. Carrying key to beach was a bit of a nuisance. Kitchen was bare had to supply everything. Master bathroom tub drained so slow but did like location of condo complex.

Owner's Response: Not sure what you mean by kitchen was bare and you had to supply everything. The kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans, plates, cups, bowls, utensils, coffee maker, blender, grilling equipment, etc. No food or condiments are typically supplied as a part of a beach condo rental. As we can't be certain of the safety of food left behind we instruct the cleaning service to dispose of all food items left behind by guests. With regard to a keyless entry doorknob, we have tested several and haven't been able to find one with a good battery life. When the batteries go dead the guest gets locked out which is much more inconvenient than carrying a key. We will inform the management company that the tub is draining slowly. Thanks for your feedback.

The real attraction of this property is direct access to the beautiful Gulf white sand beach.
