Something magical happens when you visit the Alabama Gulf Coast. The moment you arrive, the world starts to fade away. Maybe it's the sound of waves gently lapping the shore or the smell of coconut oil. Perhaps it's the white sand Gulf Coast beaches and sparkling emerald water. Suddenly building sandcastles moves to the top of your 'to-do' list. You remember just how much fun your spouse is. You find yourself laughing at your son's 'Knock, knock' joke, even though you've heard it a zillion times. You linger over a succulent, fresh seafood dinner at one of the seaside restaurants in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, where nobody rushes to get away from the table.

A great getaway is closer than you think. A visit to Orange Beach and Gulf Shores offers the perfect balance of non-stop activity and lay-around-doing-nothing time. Putter around a bit on one of our championship golf courses. Cast your line for deep-sea adventure on one of the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach fishing charters. Travel back in history with a visit to Fort Morgan, the site of the Civil War Battle of Mobile Bay. Commune with Mother Nature as you hike wildlife trails gazing at shorebirds.

Gulf Shores / Orange Beach is a place where you can slow down, let loose, rediscover yourself and savor your loved ones. It's the Alabama Gulf Coast, plan your trip today!

Fun but there were problems.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay there. Until the started working on it. I understand that people have to work but we got no notification that they were going to do anything. Just 7 in the morning they started jack hammering away at the bedroom window. That lasted all day! Dust and debris all over the clothes and towels that were drying out on the patio. Then we get a plastic covering over the window. No ocean view from the bedroom nor breeze and sound of the waves crashing because the plastic doesn't allow you to open it now. The WiFi is lousy and the elevator broke down for have the day. Which sucks when your on the top floor.

Cold AC! Comfortable beds, plenty of towels and blankets! Nicely furnished.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great trip and would rent this unit again. Beautiful views, comfortable furnishings, and plenty of towels (that is important.) just fancy enough to be 'nice' but not so fancy as to make you nervous about the kids. Perfect for a family or for two couples with it's 2 king bedrooms. The street-side bedroom has a huge walk-in closet that will hold a crib, playpen, or air mattress comfortably. The third bedroom has twin beds and the teenagers were happy there, except the TV does not support a game system. An upgrade here would be nice. Overall, we were well pleased with the unit and the price.

Great location, but needs a bit of work

  • 3 of 5

Overall, this condo was a good fit for our family of 5. The location was fantastic and we loved the view from the top floor balcony. Watching dolphins off the balcony each morning was so much fun. I wish the weather had been a tad warmer during our visit, but that couldn't be helped and the beach was still wonderful. Our kids had a blast digging in the sand and looking for shells. A heated pool would also have been nice, but unfortunately, this building didn't have one.

There were a few minor things in the condo that could be fixed to make it a bit nicer. The carpet could use replacing, as could a few of the linens and some of the shower fixtures. We also had an issue running out of hot water for showers. The living room tv also needs to be replaced as the screen was going out. I don't consider the condo safe for a crawling baby (ie. an unfinished floor outlet in the living room), which made me nervous with our baby during our stay.

While this condo wasn't perfect or super updated, the location was great. I think with a tiny bit of work, this condo would easily be five stars! I would definitely consider visiting again if these few issues were addressed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing the positive elements of the condo and for also bringing to light things that need our attention. Based on your feedback, we will be addressing each of these and making adjustments to the condo to make it better. We hope that you will consider renting from us again.

Place is tired

  • 1 of 5

Although the location was ok the place was tired. It needs a good DEEP cleaning- the people that clean must be blind not to see all the dirt, along with replacing the carpet in bedrooms or putting tile down. It seemed really small for 3 couples to share. Bathrooms are small. The owner did attempt to fix a few things but the third bedroom with the twin beds were still awful. He replaced the mattresses, but needed to replace the box springs as well. Place was just bandaided to get by. Being on the beach and getting up to see the sunrise was a plus.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that these guests did not find our condo satisfactory. It is always been our goal for everyone to have a pleasant & enjoyable experience. Our condo is a large three bedroom, three bath with a large living area and a patio over looking the beach. Very seldom do we have three adult couples come and stay for a full month, but that's what happened here. These three couples stayed there (collectively) for a full month for $50.00 per night (on the beach). We tried everything possible to make them happy. We replaced the stove with a new one, replaced mattresses on the twin beds, had the cleaning crew come back and re-clean the unit. From arrival until departure they complained, despite our offers to assist and even refund. They even complained after departure that it took 7 days to refund the damage deposit, even though that is a standard/automated feature of the VRBO rental process. VRBO offers either a 7 or 14 day automatic refund on damage deposits, and we have selected the shorter time period as our offering. Hopefully these couples will find a unit more pleasing to them on their next visit. No one likes a bad review, but unfortunately, with some people its inevitable.
