As described

  • 4 of 5

This was a last-minute booking for a spur-of-the-moment birthday weekend. Our party consisted of 6 adults, and the unit had one bathroom (as described). It was a tight fit for the weekend, but we knew that going in. First impression was that the unit was cute, clean, and as described, except for the 16-steps part. We were on the top floor, which is actually 33 steps, but who's counting? The sound machine/clock and TV remote in the bedroom didn't work. We tried putting new batteries in the remote...still didn't work. We all like big mugs of coffee in the morning, and there was only one large mug in the cabinet. I was the birthday girl, so I got dibs on that! Everything else we needed in the kitchen was provided (except maybe a tea kettle - we used a big pot to boil water). The beds were comfortable. The sofa sleeper wasn't, but we didn't really expect a great mattress on a sofa sleeper. If you like animals, the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo is for you! They offer five animal encounters where you can actually go into the cages with lemurs, sloths, anteaters, kangaroos, or reptiles. The lemurs were adorable! It was a good get-away for a reasonable price, and I would definitely recommend this unit if you have a party of 4 or less.

Cute condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a getaway weekend with girlfriends and we loved it! The condo is cute with plenty of room for us, and the beach is just a few steps away. We loved the restaurant across the street, The Beach House.--- excellent food and drinks. The condo location is close to just about anything you want to do. Would highly recommend this unit and we will definitely make this our annual trip!

The property was great, and the location was great.

  • 4 of 5

We really had a great time staying there. It was a experience my grandchildren will never forget.

The only problems were It took us 15 hours to get there, and the lock was broke so we couldn't get into the room to relax, and go anywhere,

until later that night, when someone brought us a key to get in, which took time to get a hold of help, but once we did it was fine. The lock was fixed the next afternoon. The front two windows didn't lock, which wasn't good, but we managed. There was only 5 wet towels for 4 people to stay 3 nights, but there was a washer & dryer. But bottom line is we had a great time, the place is right on the beach, nice place, and great location. I will recommend It, and would stay there again, even after everything else.
