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 Alabama

Because of the beauty of the place and the high quality of the owners here.

What makes this condo unique

I am 67 years old and I enjoy fishing and golfing on the many fine golf courses in the area. Just enjoying the beauty of the place and the people.

Wonderful Vacation at Martinique on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

Martinique on the Gulf is a beautiful community, and this condo is as pictured. This was our third family trip to the Gulf Shores area beaches. This condo and community is absolutely our favorite. Wonderful floor plan for family, large kitchen and living room area... with location, location, location... overlooking the beach, the beautiful boardwalk through the dunes, and next door to the tropical pool. Gordon was responsive, only a quick phone call away, and was kind enough to allow us to bring two pets (a Yorkie and a Chihuahua). For dinner, I recommend Sassy Bass which is near the condo in Fort Morgan. The night that our group ate there, Shelby Brown from "The Voice" was their featured entertainer... That girl can really sing and the food was amazing too! We thank you for a wonderful vacation and hope to return to Gordon's condo again next year.

Renter beware

  • 1 of 5

I would absolutely never rent from Gordon again. His condo was filthy. Stains on the couches and beds, ants on the counter, stuck on food on the table, dirty floors, broken fixtures in the bathroom. I contacted him immediately and he responded and said he would credit me for the disgusting state of the condo. In fact, he has been very responsive up until I was supposed to receive my security deposit. All of a sudden his story has changed. Now he is trying to make my security deposit inclusive of the compensation. He will not return my phone calls or emails. I have pictures and email threads that prove I am not making this up or over exaggerating. Renter beware. We rented from him because of all the high reviews but it has not been a pleasant experience for us.

Owner's Response: i believe these people planned to write this review before they even arrived at the condo so they could get a refund and have probably done this at other places they have rented. i did refund them their $200 deposit plus a $300 refund on their rent. i guess you will get one of these every now and then out of the almost 31 five star reviews we have received. We had a five star before they arrived and a five star after they departed. I would not recommend renting to them.

Heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was amazing. Very clean & well kept. Great location from the beach & pool. Restaurants close by along with a small grocery store. Local pizza place was great. The under cabinet ice machine was a huge bonus. Gordon was extremely responsive & helpful. We have stayed in Orange Breach, Gulf Shores and now Fort Morgan and this location was by far our favorite and plan to be back next year. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect floor plan I dream of owning someday. Split bedrooms and 3 bathrooms! It was a perfect getaway for our yearly family vacation. Gordon was very easy to work with. The condo has the prime position of having direct ocean view, along with a view and close proximity of the pool. The beach was very nice and clean. The condo has all the extras like a bar ice machine and a trash compactor. Gordon allowed us to bring our two small dogs and they loved sitting on the deck and using the dog area outside. They became pros at using the elevator and loved the space. We enjoyed and would recommend Tacky Jacks, The Gulf(our favorite in Gulf shores-20 min drive but worth it), The Oyster Bar in Gulf Shores. Our family did the escape game also next to the Oyster Bar which was so fun. At the end of the day, that master bedroom spa tub was the greatest. Thanks for allowing us to stay in your awesome condo! We hated to leave!

LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS CONDO

  • 5 of 5

WOW! This condo is perfect.... right on the beach! It was so nice to be able to travel with our pets and the beach is so pet friendly...the pet area was great and very close, the condo was equipped with everything you could ask for, very spacious and nicely furnished. We loved having the pool so close and one day we went to other pool and had it all to ourselves. We walk every morning so this community was perfect. I recommend some of the restaurants that are close.....Tacky Jack's in Ft. Morgan had a great view! You are closer than you think to the Outlet Mall so we spent a morning there as well...great shops! Gordon was very easy to work with and quick to respond. I could go on and on....all I can say is if you are looking for the PERFECT beach rental this is it! So perfect, that we are booked for next year! Do yourself a favor and book it now... you will not be sorry. Thanks Gordon....can't wait until next May.....we only have 357 days....LOL
