Why The Owner chose Alabama

After looking at condos in several other complexes, we chose Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet because of the beautiful tropical pool area and clean white sand private beach.

What makes this condo unique

You have water all around you here with the Gulf on one side and the Lagoon on the other.

Great get-away!

  • 4 of 5

This was a vacation for me and my husband. We enjoyed the pool and the hot tub and the short walk across the street to get to the beautiful sandy beach. The view from the balcony off family room was awesome. Overall, the condo was adequate. The bedroom was small, no place to put luggage and small closet that also had other things in it. The family room and kitchen area were nice and comfortable. It would have been nice to have a couple of beach chairs available for our use while we were there. Overall, an enjoyable 3 days!

Enjoyed Ourselves Great Quiet Condo

  • 5 of 5

Cute condo with 2 balconies, the living room is over looking the pool area and lagoon and the bedroom has views of the lagoon and the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful sunsets! Kitchen had everything you need to fix meals, though we mostly ate dinner out at the numerous restaurants, DeSoto's, Shrimp Basket, Acme Oyster House, Gelato Joe's just to name a few. Owners are great to work with and very responsive. The beach is just across the street, very easy açcess. Loved our stay and are looking forward to staying longer next year!

Best Family Vacation Spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this condo for the last 4 nights. It was perfect from arrival to departure! We brought our kayaks, and were able to see them in the lot at all times. This unit is an end unit on the lagoon side. The sunsets from the balcony off the bedroom are to die for! The pool was fantastic with plenty of chairs. We enjoyed kayaking over to Little Lagoon Pass. We loved evening fishing from the piers. We caught a few crabs in our trap. The AC in the room was phenomenal! I forgot my blender, and was so happy to see there was one in the condo. It was my lifesaver! Our boys had a great time, and our family will be booking this condo again very soon! Also, all emails were responded to within an hour. Having been to the beach hundreds of times, I can honestly say that our family had the best time here!! We hated to leave!!!!
