About Gary & Laura Merello

Beaches were always our passion. We couldn't wait to travel to new tropical settings. The tranquility and beauty always puts us in proper perspective of appreciation for the gifts of nature.

After the first trip to Gulf Shores Alabama, we knew it was a place we wanted to return again and again.

We've love visiting by ourselves, with our family (10 grandchildren) and friends. The beach never disappoints us.

Gary & Laura Merello purchased this condo in 2005

Why Gary & Laura Merello chose Alabama

The first year after taking an early retirement we bought our first Gulf Shores Condo (Our other 1 bedrm listing is 25459) It's always been a peaceful beach get-away. Away from the normal tourist congestion but with numerous actives a short drive away. It seems like every trip we make, we find new Gulf Shore friends in the complex and new places to explore. We've always enjoyed our beach get-away.

What makes this condo unique

The complex has enough amenities that you can stay at condo, relax and eat-in. But the local wildlife, restaurants, actives and nightlife offer some wonderful choices worth seeking out.

We love the Buffett-sound and the southern-country rock. These musical talents are well showcased in Gulf Shores.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kim and I have enjoyed our stay and sad we have to go home tomorrow but I guess all good things must come to an end. Just wanted to let you know that we plan on leaving around 6:00 am tomorrow. Not sure if you have someone checking in tomorrow but wanted to give you a heads up to give extra time to get the condo ready if needed.



Had a question...what kind of mattress is in the master bedroom? My wife has had issues with her back her whole life and says she's never slept better. We've been thinking of buying a new mattress for our home so we're curious.



Thanks so much for opening up your condo for us. We've had a great time and sad to leave tomorrow.

Great little getaway

  • 4 of 5

This is a great little condo in the very quiet Fort Morgan area. It was clean and the kitchen appliances are brand new. The kitchen cabinets are well stocked, and the owners were easy to work with. The view of the beach is from the side which we knew going in, but we couldn't beat the price to stay in such a great place. We absolutely recommend staying here.

Beach time for the girls

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our mini reunion of "old" high school friends. Your rental was just about perfect for 3 ladies. I slept on the pull out couch, which was very comfy, because I loved opening my eyes in the morning and seeing the ocean out the balcony doors. The kitchen had everything we need, including pitchers for mixing drinks and water bottles we could take on our walks. We were there in November, which I guess is the off season. So we were wishing we had brought our own beach chairs, as there were none to rent that we could see. Also, the laundry facilities were out of soap, and since we were trying to do laundry late at night on our last night.... well, we gave up and took dirty laundry home. No big deal. Also the pass cards for the fitness center didn't work. We found out where to get that fixed, but we got so busy, we never did that. If we had been there longer, we may have needed that option, but even with one pool area under renovation, we found plenty to do with beach walking, sitting, hot tubbing and the many other pools to pick from. We would love to come back and stay longer. And a huge PS, we really enjoyed the lovely artwork in the condo. Good job!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was fully equipped, beautiful and clean. The property was well maintained. We had so much fun and can't wait to return and plan to book the same unit. The entire trip we kept commenting how great the condo was. Functionality, location.. etc... etc..we kept commenting that we needed to write a review in the guest book but found ourselves busy. Thanks for a great stay, easy communication and fabulous get away!

Gulf Shores-Merello

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! The perfect size for 4 people, convenient to the beach and all the amenities the property complex has to offer, which is a lot, and fully stocked utensil-wise with anything you might need for your stay. It was neat, clean and decorated beautifully.
