Coming Home to "Southern Charm"

  • 5 of 5

Wanted to send you a quick note to say that we sure missed the “Southern Charm” during our October visit to Gulf Shores. Since your condo wasn’t available, we had to locate another option. Although it was the same beach it definitely wasn’t the same experience. We want to thank you for all that you do to make your Gulf Shores home, a home to all who stay there. The comfort and amenities provided are beyond those of “like” advertised rentals. We are already planning our return home to “Southern Charm” in the spring, and look forward to booking with you soon.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing that I noticed upon walking into this condo was the magnificant, plush, white carpet! I would love to have this carpet in my own home. Everything was so clean and nice, much nice than other condos in the building. I have stayed at the Island Royale several times and have never had a nicer condo; this one definitely tops the cake! The master bedroom had a nice, comfortable, king-sized bed and the room was nicely decorated. I saw in a previous review that the stove was old and scary - this was not the case for us. The stove is not a flat top but it is very simple and easy to use - not really sure why this was a problem for a previous renter. Not scary in the slightest.

The balcony overlooks the beach and you can look either way for a long ways down the beach - you don't have a big building blocking your view on either side - you can see around them. We could watch the crab hunters run around on the beach from our balcony. It was such a nice condo and I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend it to anyone. I already have it booked for next year! :)

Second visit to this lovely condo. Everything was perfect including the weather. Sitting on the balconey overlooking the gulf when the sun is going down is something we really enjoyed and miss. My husband swam in the gulf every morning and on several occasions the dolphins were swimming close by. Very comfortable accommodations especially that king size bed. We had a wonderful month at southern charm and look forward to next year.

Bright and Charming

  • 5 of 5

I just completed a week stay at Southern Charm and would recommend this condo to those seeking comfort, cheeriness and a view of the Gulf which is spectacular. The king bed is the most comfortable one I have ever slept in as well as the multiple oversized pillows which are heavenly. The decor is light and beachy, and the place was spotless. The owner responded immediately in helping me correct a problem with the internet provider. I will definitely return.

A Nice Time

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and well stocked. The keyless entry was very nice. The complex in general is somewhat dated and could really use some updating.

Wonderful Experience!!!!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful time was had a this beautiful Gulf Coast beach location. The owners provided a well maintained, well stocked, beautifully decorated condo to make a vacation a success! The owners were attentive in communicating all information for the rental and their love for the condo, love of the location, desire to provide a positive experience and apprecation for renters was obvious.
