Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This rental is the best of both worlds because it is ideally located on LITTLE LAGOON and across from association owned access to the beautiful white sands of the Gulf Of Mexico. Enjoy the lagoon view from the 15 foot span of open windows and sliding doors just off the living/dining area. The living area opens to a large FURNISHED BALCONY where you can sit and enjoy meals or just relax. The LIVING AREA has new leather furniture, a 42' Flat Screen TV, DVD player with DVDs and wet bar. The beautiful KITCHEN features a side-by-side refrigerator with filtered water and ice, quiet dishwasher, smooth range and microwave. Everything you need is provided to cook a wonderful meal that you can serve on the 'World Market' DINING TABLE that seats 8 people. We also offer a HOME OFFICE area with media com internet. So all you need to bring is your laptop.

Enjoy the view of the Olympic sized pool from the luxury of the MASTER BEDROOM which features a King Size bed with new Simmons mattress, a 27' flat screen TV that sits on a full length dresser, matching side tables w/ lamps. This bedroom has a separate DRESSING AREA with electric make-up mirror and lots of storage. The MASTER BATH is completely remodeled with new cabinets, corian counters, lighting, mirrors and even the fixtures! Both of the other bedrooms and bathroom have been as carefully updated for your comfort! If you have young children you will appreciate the portable crib and high chair we have included. One bedroom is great for children with two bunk-beds. The new bamboo and tile flooring makes the condo child friendly. Also available for your use are beach chairs and a charcoal grill so you can sit on the balcony and watch the cook in your family grill the fish you caught from one of the piers at Sea Oats. Use the Sea Oats BOAT RAMP to launch your small boat or jet ski. Fifty boat slips are available at a first come first serve basis and half can be seen from our balcony.

After dinner take a walk on the beach, watch the sunset from the balcony, enjoy night fishing, a late night swim in one of the condo's pools, or watch a DVD from our personal collection on 42' TV. We hope you enjoy everything we have done to make this our home away from home.

About Sheri Smith

Our family has always loved saltwater and all that goes with beachside living. When our children were young, we purchased beach property in NC and enjoyed the beach life with family and friends. A move to Florida in 1994 made owning this property unrealistic so we were landlocked for many years. After looking up and down the gulf coast for several years for our beach dream home, we found the perfect beach escape in the Gulf Shores complex of Sea Oats. We hope our beach home can be the place you dream about when you plan your beach vacation. This is the perfect vacation place to make memories!

Sheri Smith purchased this condo in 2009

Why Sheri Smith chose Gulf Shores

We purchased a condo in Sea Oats because the amenities meet the varied interests of our family. My daughter and I love to sit in a beach chair on the white sand, read a book and watch the gulf. The men in our family enjoy fishing on the pier that is just steps from the condo. The boat slips provide easy storage and access for the boat we recently purchased to increase our enjoyment of Gulf Shores.. My grandchildren love the beach and sand but also love the pool. My son enjoys a quiet weekend away from college. He enjoys sittings on the balcony and uses Wi-Fi to finish college work or just keep up with his friends.

What makes this condo unique

The location of this condo is near the end of the island where the pace is slower and life is quieter. That makes it the perfect place for long walks or bike rides. It is a low density complex which makes it family friendly. However, it is just a short drive to great restaurants, grocery stores, movie theaters, retail and outlet shopping.

Best vacay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The condo is HUGE! Very nicely decorated, clean and has everything there you could possibly need. Condo area was quiet, spent a lot of time on balcony listening to the water and watching the birds. Beach is short walk across the street. Only negative is we didn't stay longer!

Repeat Renter

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this condo and everything was just as great as the first time! The owners are maintaining this property very well, and responded quickly throughout the renting process and during our stay. The location in Gulf Shores is perfect. The West end is quieter; less traffic on the street and the beach. We took a beach wagon with us this time and it made the short walk to the beach easier. The dock is great for fishing and for watching sunsets. The pool is well maintained and is quite large. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We love Gulf Shores for the same reasons you listed! It is a great family friendly area. I love the idea of a beach wagon. That would make the walk to the beach with chairs and other beach things much easier. Joe and I try to have the condo equipped with items that will make travel to our condo easier for our guests; especially large items like beach chairs, an umbrella, beach towels, small coolers and beach toys. Thank you for choosing to stay with us again this summer and I hope we hear from you when you plan your next stay in Gulf Shores! Sheri

Lots to do for all ages

  • 4 of 5

Clean family atmosphere with access to the bay with fishing docks and access to the beach just a short walk across the road. Access to two large pools. All the various ages and genders found plenty to keep them occupied during our stay. My only complaint is the Sea Oats Complex beach access leaves much to be desired. It would be nice to have a boardwalk over the sand dunes, some seating, and spray access. The unit was clean and nicely decorated. The supplies were more than any other place we have stayed at. A great stay that will be remembered.

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting a review about your stay at our condo in Sea Oats. We really try to keep our condo fully equipped for our guests. We are so glad you found the unit fit your family's needs and you enjoyed your week. I know some guests would like a more developed beach access. That is something the HOA has to approve and I will mention to them. I know the complex added a kayak launch this year behind E building; but beach access is very important. Again, thank you for your review. I hope to hear from you next time you decide to vacation at Gulf Shores. Sheri

Rain or shine, this is a nice place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Despite bad weather, we had a pleasant vacation. The condo was nicely decorated and had enough furniture and room to accomodate the six of us - 3 adults and 3 teenagers- without anyone feeling cramped. Being able to view the lagoon from the condo was a nice benefit since the rain kept us inside and away from the beach most of the week. And the pools were a benefit when the rain cleared, but there were still double red flags on the beaches. The owners are friendly, attentive and quick to respond to any questions or concerns.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great vacation staying at your condo. Loved the renovations-so roomy and relaxing. Loved being able to see the wharf and bay from the balcony.

Beautiful sunsets watched every night - truly a paradise. Hopefully we can return next year.

Another perfect vacation in the books!

  • 5 of 5

I already miss our home away from home and am looking forward to next year. The condo is still in such excellent condition, never dated and so clean - just as it was the first year we stayed in 2011. We don't plan to ever change where we stay!

Renting with Sheri and Joe is so simple and they make sure their guests feel so comfortable with all the comforts of home.

Thanks again for helping us make wonderful memories!
