About The Owner

We live just north of Nashville, TN and find Gulf Shores, AL the perfect place to vacation. It is a 7 1/2 drive and all the sun, sand & good food you could want. Our grandchildren love it!!!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Alabama

This area is not as busy as most beach areas. For many years we vacationed further East and as they became busier we kept moving West. Gulf Shores has a small town feel but has all the amenities you could want. Outlet shopping is only 10 miles away in Foley. Fishing charters are about 3 or 4 miles away in Orange Beach.

Mobile, AL has many attractions just a short drive away such as botanical garden, USS Alabama, as well as many others, and you can take the ferry from Gulf Shores to Mobile which is an experience some people have not had the opportunity to enjoy. Fort Morgan should also be on the agenda when in the area.

What makes this condo unique

Sitting on balcony and looking at ocean, sand, sunrises and sunsets. Enjoying all the delicious seafood at all the good restaurants in the area.

Great family get away

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to stay at the San Carlos. We were extremely pleased with this unit and Barbara was great to work with. There were 6 adults in our group and there was plenty of comfortable seating in the living room. The condo is beautifully furnished and decorated. It was great having a bathroom attached to each bedroom. The master bath has a nice whirlpool tub which was a wonderful way to end the day. We loved the extra large balcony, and there is a storage container full of beach toys for the kids. It was also nice to have covered parking. We enjoyed our stay here and we think you will too!

Beautiful condo right on the water!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Gulf Shores. This condo exceeded our expectations. It was absolutely beautiful. We had 3 generations. My husband and I, our grown children and our 2 grandchildren, ages 4 & 8. San Carlos was the perfect location in Gulf Shores. The condo had everything we needed. It was very clean and well maintained. I was a little worried we would not be able to hear the ocean from our 8th floor balcony. That was not the case. We could hear the ocean and the view was fabulous. The town of Gulf Shores had lots of little restaurants, souvenir shops. Barbara was very friendly and easy to work with. Our deposit almost made to our house before we returned. PERFECT BEACH VACATION. We would definitely go back. Thank you Barbara for your hospitality!!

This is a great property, condo and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at the San Carlos, we were not disappointed! The place is exactly as represented, clean, comfortable, roomy and convenient. We love having a third bathroom for getting ready to go out in the evening, as there are 5 adult ladies in our group. We loved the higher chairs on the balcony, as the view was not obstructed by the railing and the balcony was very roomy. The condo is within walking distance of popular restaurants, we always had a covered parking spot and everyone we met were very friendly. Barbara was a pleasure to work with from the very beginning, she is very responsive and communicates via email, phone or text, which is very helpful! We LOVED the pool! The sun was on the pool most of the day, not blocked by other buildings and both ends had easy entrance. There were plenty of pool chairs and tables as well. Having a full size washer and dryer was awesome too, we could dry our beach towels each evening and they would be ready the next day. If you are planning a relaxing trip to Gulf Shores, do yourself a favor and book this condo, you will NOT be disappointed!!

A beautiful vacation spot that won't disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for the perfect getaway... Look no further! My family and I have stayed in this unit for the last several years! It is always very clean, very well kept, updated yearly, organized, and beautifully decorated! Barbara has outdone herself! Her attention to detail is exceptional and there is no corner that is left untouched! The kitchen has everything one might need and more! All three bedrooms are very comfortable and relaxing with extra blankets and pillows if needed! San Carlos is a great complex and within walking distance to several great restaurants and a very good snow cone shack! I can't say enough about Barbara! This owner is the sweetest and easiest lady you could work with! She is very personable! Whether we are talking on the phone or thru text, it is clear she has a heart of gold! Thanks Barbara for always going above and beyond in helping make the most beautiful memories!

San Carlos- vacation spot that will feel like home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to stay at the San Carlos, this condo is tastefully decorated and has all of the comforts of home. You can't beat the view from the balcony! The kitchen has more cooking equipment than most condos which was very helpful.
