About the property

Beachfront Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths,(Sleeps 4-6),Great View

Welcome to our beach get-away, a pristinely conditioned condominium with an exquisite direct beach view from the 12th floor.


In addition to comfortable, modern furniture, we take extra care to make sure the small conveniences and comforts are in place so our unit remains in immaculate condition year-round for your vacation. Our condo is perfect for a family of 4-5 (two adults with 2-3 kids) or two couples.

Watch the dolphins frolic and play from the large and private double balcony furnished with solid wood furniture - picnic table, two benches, double rocker, and 2 loungers (with cushions) - so you can sit back and enjoy the beauty and sounds as the waves roll in.

Our unit is fully furnished featuring a modern kitchen with granite countertops, a bar eating area, dining room with large wood table, living areas with flatscreen TV, free password protected Wi-fi, full-size laundry amenities, wall-mounted flatscreen TVs in both bedrooms, and a large private balcony with wood furnishings. The main living area and bathrooms of our unit have new tile throughout and carpet in the bedrooms.

We are committed to maintaining a condo in pristine condition for your relaxing enjoyment while you stay with us. Our condo is a NON SMOKING - NO PETS unit. We encourage you to call us if you have any questions we can answer before you make your reservation. A good relationship with our guests is important to us.

Crystal Shores is a well-kept 14 story condominium completed in 2004 with a recent exterior update and new tile in the common areas in 2014. Our unit is located directly on the white sandy beach approximately one mile west of the center of attractions in Gulf Shores. Your family is far enough away from the activity to enjoy a calm and quiet vacation but conveniently close to groceries and restaurants. Premises monitored by security guard.

The indoor/outdoor swim through pool, hot tub with a waterfall effect, loungers, and tables are favorites with the kids and adults alike. After a day at the beach, the kids will love the pool table and foosball in the game room while the adults enjoy a quiet moment in the sauna or a workout in the exercise room overlooking the beach. On the same level but opposite the pool area are two charcoal grills with picnic tables for those nights when you prefer to stay in, lounge by the pool, or dine on the beach.

A local general grocery store is located across the street from the complex for your convenience. For those nights when you wish to venture out, you are surrounded by restaurants and activities for the entire family. There are also brochures provided in the lobby to help you find local restaurants and fun things for your family to enjoy and we will share our favorites with you when you make your reservation. Just ask!

Great condo, great location. The condo is very nice with very nice furnishings.

  • 4 of 5

Condo is in a great location, with VERYeasy access to the beach. It's less than a mile to the main strip of restaurants and retail in Gulf Shores. Furnishings were very nice. The swimming pool is a bit smallish, but nice. Condo building does have chaise lounges and umbrellas you can rent, but at $30/day, a bit pricey. The ONLY reason I can't give 4 stars is that Gulf Shores took a direct hit from Tropical Storm Cindy on our second day, resulting in the beach and surf being closed for the remainder of our trip, with police and lifeguards patrolling fiercely, as should be expected. Just relegated us to spending a "beach vacation" in the smallish, VERY crowded pool and inside the condo. Having said that, I would definitely recommend the condo and location, as they are stellar and for 95% of the time would be a great beach vacation experience.

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The unit itself was clean and well-maintained. The view from the 12th floor balcony was stunning, right on the beach overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The owners are friendly, very pleasant to work with, and accommodating... They left a binder filled with information about different eateries and activities and entertainment around the area, and even left a stack of board games for rainy days. We were very pleased, overall, and would book this unit again.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo right on the beach! It was the perfect amount of space for our young family of 4. The views from the balcony were spectacular. The inside / outside pool was a favorite for our girls ages 3 and 8 when we were not at the beach. Regina (owner) was extremely accommodating and made sure our stay was enjoyable from start to finish! When we return to Gulf Shores, we will definitely look to her again.

Excellent Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This condo rental was the BEST I've ever had! The condo is exactly as it looked on the internet, was very clean, comfortable, and very well furnished. The beach view is Awesome! We enjoyed the balcony with plenty of seating to relax, eat, and watch the ocean. The kitchen has everything you would need to fix meals and there are lots of very good restaurants very near the condo. The beach and property are very well patrolled by security. There is covered parking available. It is located RIGHT ON THE BEACH! Regina was very easy to reach via email and phone and made sure we had arrived safely and found everything acceptable. Can't begin to tell you how nice it is to deal directly with the owner, rather than a rental company. You can tell that she and her family take pride in their condo and want you to enjoy it too! I will definitely rent this condo again if we ever go back to Gulf Shores!

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo in June 2016. The pictures of the unit are exactly what we found upon arrival. The view is wonderful and being on the 12th floor, you can see for miles down the beach. The condo was very clean with plenty of fresh towels, etc. The kitchen was well appointed with better than expected cookware, dishes and silverware. The beds were extremely comfortable and there were plenty of extra pillows, a must for me when I travel. All appliances worked perfectly including the air conditioner. We didn't visit the pool because the beach was so perfect, but saw lots of people enjoying it. We will definitely stay there again...hopefully soon! Regina was kind and prompt in her correspondence through email. I appreciate her attention to the details of our trip and she was personable and easy to work with. This will be first on our list for our next visit.
