Great location, in need of updates
The location of the condo is fantastic--just a quick walk across the parking lot to the beach. The kids enjoyed the indoor pool when the weather wasn't cooperative. It's also near Ft Morgan, so it's far enough away from the hubbub of Gulf Shores, but close enough to enjoy it when you want to.
I traveled with my mom and three small children. I'd say the condo was great for most of us except my 1 year old. The screen in the front door was broken upon arrival, and the back screen door was pretty flimsy, so it kept coming off the track. The grout was breaking up on the floor in certain spots, so I just had to be vigilant that she didn't get hurt. Also, since my baby crawls around constantly, I noticed that areas around the baseboards weren't super clean. Most people won't have an issue with this--I just did because I was always staring at the floor! I acknowledge that having a condo that is not baby-friendly isn't Mike's fault--we just have particular needs for a little one that many vacation rentals might not be able to address.
Mike was a very gracious host. Any concerns we reported, he addressed immediately. The woman in charge of cleaning and the man who does maintenance both stopped by and were very friendly. The maintenance guy fixed a shower issue while we were there and also was going to fix the front door screen the day we left.
Despite what it sounds like, I think I would definitely return to this condo if he is able to update it, especially the floors and screen doors! Mike was responsive, and the condo is in a great spot for a peaceful vacation.
The condo we stayed in was not clean as was expected based reading other reviews
I've created a pros and cons list to share:
-Great availability of kitchen items, pots, pans, dishes, almost anything that could be needed.
-Having the island in the kitchen was very useful.
-Plenty of room for our 3 week stay, with just 2 of us, and we had 2 visitors stay a few nights.
-Bath towels are in good shape, but there were not 4 to 6 per bathroom, there were more like 6 in total, but for 2 people that is plenty.
-Amenities at the condo, pool areas were very clean.
-The beach is awesome.
-Laundry facilities worked well and very convenient just down the hall.
While we were at the condo we seen inside of other condos that had been updated and they looked very appealing.
We bought some rugs while we were at the condo, we meant to remove them, but forgot and left them. Hopefully others will enjoy having some rugs to walk on.
- 2 dish towels, 1 dish rag, both of which need to be replaced.
-There is no bath mat in the bathrooms.
- Blinds broken or won't open - the slider had a couple broken slats, the master bedroom blind could not be lifted up, you could remove some of the extra slats then maybe it would open.
-The screen door on the slider doesn't fit well, therefore does not slide well.
-Heavy cleaning needed. My husband and I spent several hrs cleaning.
-Furnace door with louvers had to be taken down and scrubbed there was so much dust on it.
-We dusted headboards, dressers, stands, lampshades, bleach wiped all floors, every flat surface. There was a thick layer of dust everywhere.
-Kitchen appliances, needed cleaning, we only cleaned what we used the coffee pot, crock pot, toaster, dishwasher.
-Tile floor is ruff.
I'm not sure what our cleaning fee that we paid was used for, a new cleaning service should be considered.
I had read many reviews stating that the condo was old but clean, so we were very dissatisfied on the cleanliness. The condo really could use some simple updates to make it a more appealing, one example: paint the wood furniture white so it's not bare wood.
Perfect location! The kitchen was great! The beds were comfortable. The indoor pool was awesome. The owners were great to work with. I hope to stay here again soon!
Thanks for your kind review! It was a pleasure having you & hope your plans allow you to return soon!
Awesome value for a great price!
The room was cleaned well. Plenty of room for four people. The walk to the beach was not bad at all. Compared to the prices you would usually pay, this place was a steal and a great value to boot! If we get to come back we will definitely stay again! Owner super fast to get back with you when you contact and seemed very friendly! I would highly recommend to family and friends!
Thanks so much!
What a wonderful time!!

Thank you much for the kindness Bill. You were great guests! Come back any time your schedule allows!
Everything we wanted!
The place was clean and it is literally a 2min walk across the parking lot down the board walk and onto beautiful white sand and clear ocean. Had everything we needed even utensils. Community feeling and right next to a nature preserve so lots of cool whildlife sightings from dolphins to skates crabs and fish. We plan to visit again!
