About The Owner

I am a native of Tuscaloosa,Al and my wife Leslie is from Baton Rouge,La. I met her in Tuscaloosa while she was in graduate school. I had already graduated from UA and was getting started in developing student apartments. Leslie and I waited 3 years for Martinique to be completed and have no regrets. It was worth the wait. To us

Martinique is one of the most beautiful and unique resorts around. There will never be another resort like it I don't beleive. We do a lot of inshore fishing for speckle trout,red fish and flounder and have our own boat. We play golf,shop,eat at the many restuarants and enjoy every minute we are hear with other friends that have places in Gulf Shores. Why search for any better beachs when we have the best I think in the world right hear in Alabama.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1999

Why The Owner chose Gulf Shores

What makes this condo unique

great location away from the crowds

  • 3 of 5

I would rate our stay at this condo as average. The pros were that the owner was great to work with, he allowed our dog to stay with us, the location of the condo on the property and the community is fantastic. The pool was awesome with several shaded areas and comfy chairs. The master bathroom is great! This is a quiet area away from the crowds. The cons were that because we were on the 2nd level, you could continually hear the family staying above us and it sounded like a herd of cattle running around-all throughout the day and night. I could even hear them above me in the shower in the master bedroom! I spoke to the maintenance man about this and he said it was an ongoing problem if you rented or owned a condo on the 1st or 2nd floors. He said when the condos were built, they were not built with enough insulation where the firewall is between each floor. Also, the beach is not just a "short walk" on the boardwalk-it is a pretty good distance if you are carrying an umbrella, chairs, cooler, etc. I would recommend you have a wagon for sure and if so, then it will be much easier to transport everything back and forth. The weather was great and overall we had a good experience.

Premium location! Beautiful beach!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week enjoying the pools, beach (most beautiful one in my opinion) and warm weather. The unit is ocean front with great views. Martinique is a unique property. It’s quiet and everyone is friendly. The unit has super comfy beds and pretty much everything you need. We watched lots of movies at night (streaming from iPad since we brought our Apple TV device and HDMI cable) with surround sound! The heated pool in the midsection of community was pretty nice to have as an option as well. Gordon is easy to work with and is helpful with anything that you might need related to the property. So... stop waiting and go to the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo, i found it to be cozy, spacious and clean. Our friends had a house in the same community. But you cant beat the view from the condo. Gordon was easy to work with. He was very prompt in getting me the keys as well as my deposit back. I loved the privacy of the area we stayed in. I felt secure with the gated community. We would definately go back and rent from Gordon. Tourist community was only 15-20 min drive, with the view the drive felt like nothing. My family of six and having 4 kids of all ages loved it! One of our favorite vacations!

Great Vacation !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Easily our best vacation yet. Gordon was a pleasure to work with, totally private beach with 3 great pools. Plenty of room in the condo for all of us. Most importantly, away from all the young spring breakers. Martinique on the Gulf is a great resort area for families. Everyone in the area was super friendly. Gordon also allowed us to bring our dog but at the last minute we boarded her but were lucky enough to see plenty of other pets on the property. We may bring our pup next time. Thank you Gordon for a great vacation!
