About Gary & Laura Merello

The first year after taking an early retirement we bought our first Gulf Shores Condo (Our 2/bedrm, listing 23432, is just down the hall) 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

Gary & Laura Merello purchased this condo in 2001

Why Gary & Laura Merello chose Alabama

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.

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

Our vacation was fantastic. We loved your condo. It was well equipped,

had a fabulous view, and was everything we expected. I hope we can come

again next year and stay a full week. We were not ready to come home.

Thanks for allowing us to visit.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love vacationing in Fort Morgan and staying at Gary and Laura's condo. For several years we have vacationed at amazing resorts in numerous tropical destinations. Never before have we traveled to the same location two years in a row, until now. This was our second year at your condo and next year we plan to make number three. If you enjoy a beautiful setting, quiet walks on the beach, and perfect weather, then we highly recommend this condo and this area. Thank you both for allowing us to enjoy another wonderful week.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed our Fort Morgan Condo. Like you, we've enjoyed many tropical destinations, but Fort Morgan has a personality all its own ... a beautiful, peaceful, friendly beach that we simply love. We look forward to hearing from you again!

Just wanted to let you know what a great time we had in Gulf Shores and in your condo! It was very comfortable for 2 adults, is very nicely decorated and the bed is SO comfortable! The view is to die for, with easy access to the beach and newest pool. We WILL be staying again!

Wonderful view

  • 4 of 5

Great location and close to the beach. The bunks were quite a bit smaller than expected. I thought they would be a traditional twin size but the bunks were half the size of a twin. Other than that, great stay.

Owner's Response: Colton, Thank you for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Also thanks for the feedback about the size of bunk beds. We'd hope to make it clear that they were meant for children, but we have heard your input and will clarify in our ad and pics. Thank you again. Gary & Laura

Excellent Condo with Fantastic Gulf View

  • 5 of 5

This is my sister's and my sixth stay on Fort Morgan and the first time in this condo. We absolutely enjoyed everything from the comfortable beds to the outstanding view from the balcony. It is a smaller condo than others but the owners have made good use of the space and provided many hooks for hanging towels and bathing suits. The condo is very clean and decorated nicely. The kitchen is well equipped but have to admit we did not cook even once!

We celebrated each new day on the balcony and ended with drinks at sunset. We hope to return in the future!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was comfortable and the views of the Gulf and white beach and dunes was wonderful! The sunsets were unbelievable. Both Gary and Laura were very responsive to any questions that I had. Only a short 19 mile drive to the main strip and shops. We cannot wait to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and kind words. We also love the sunsets. We take pics every time we are there and each beautiful sunset shines a unique glow all its own, never disappointing. Hope to hear from you again. Gary & Laura
