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.

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!

Condo is really cute, many amenities did not work

  • 2 of 5

The condo was very nice for 2 people. It is almost like a studio apartment. It's got great access to the lagoon or the beach across the street. The only things that bothered me are that the screen door facing the pool was broken upon arrival, the wifi did not work, I had no service in the condo either so that was incredibly inconvenient. There was a dirty face towel on the bed when we walked in, the tv and audio system in the den did not work. The owner offered no help for me when I said the wifi wasn't working. I'm a little disappointed in the "amentities" and the lack of care I seemed to get from the condo owner but the place is adorable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback from your recent stay in our condo during HangOut Weekend. We apologize for the poor wifi service. It has been satisfactory, but now we know it is not adequate for heavy usage times like the hangout Festival. We have talked to another provider, one with high recommendations, and we will be changing to their service. There were some glitches in the TV service following a recent upgrade, these have been addressed and the TV's are now working properly. We are sorry for any inconvenience you experienced. We are very pleased that you found the condo attractive and enjoyed the easy beach access. Sincerely, Felix and Glenda Piazza

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!
