Why rent a condo with thin motel sheets and plastic glassware when you can enjoy our personal vacation home! Enjoy luxurious 400 count thread sheets, fluffy oversize bath sheets, and crystal wine glasses to name a few of the touches that set us apart. We have furnished this condo with brand new furniture, cooking accessories, linens, plasma screens, and virtually everything else in the Summer of 2010.
Ocean Reef is just finishing a brand new facelift including new beachy colors and metal roofing! Ocean Reef is located directly on a wide stretch of beautiful beach and is a small low rise and low density condo where you do not have to wait on elevators or for a chair on the beach. Family friendly, 3 buildings from Bahama Bob's beachside restaurant, and only 4 blocks to The 'T', Hangout and heart of Gulf Shores, you can walk to restaurants, stores, and other local attractions. Minutes from Waterville, The Track, and the Zoo! Approximately 8 miles from Tanger, the largest outlet mall in Alabama!
West Beach Blvd is not a through street so traffic is limited compared to other parts of Gulf Shores. Laid back, family friendly, and a bargain compared to other beachfront properties you will return to Ocean Reef year after year for that beach vacation you anticipate each year - see you at Ocean Reef soon!

About John and Maureen
My family purchased this condo so we can have a family retreat on the beach that has always meant so much to us! We love being able to walk to our favorite restaurants and stores while still having the feel of small town beach area!
John and Maureen purchased this Condo in 2010
Why John and Maureen chose Gulf Shores
Gulf Shores is a great area, and our condo is in a great and convenient area of Gulf Shores. We can walk almost anywhere we want to go, stay in a small family friendly complex, and be on one of the most beautiful beaches around! You also have covered assigned parking directly beneath your condo so your car stays out of the hot sun.
What makes this Condo unique
Most rental condos use a linen service that provides cheap, thin sheets, small, rough motel towels, and plastic everything. We have provided luxurious 400 count thread sheets, over sized fluffy bath sheets, heavy stone wear dishes, and crystal wine glasses just like we use at our primary house. If you are on vacation we feel you should be pampered, not subjected to economy priced motel amenities. Stay with us and enjoy yourselves!

Nice condo with easy access to beach
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo! The balcony overlooked the street, which was nice to go out in the morning and eat breakfast while watching the town wake up. The pool was very nice and clean and we enjoyed swimming in it a few times. A very family friendly condominium as well with lots of friendly people! The condominium also has their own access to the beach and John and Maureen left some beach chairs and toys in the closet that we could use when we went down to the beach. The reason for the 4 stars though was not because of the condo itself but because of the neighbors directly above the condo. You could hear them walking around at all hours of the night and it was difficult to drown out the loud stomping noise. This is something the owners can’t control but just be aware of in case this might bother you. Thanks for the great stay!
Good area with nice beach and great restaurants. Nice size condo for a couple. Great linens!
The condo was just the right size for me and my husband. Convenient to many of our favorite restaurants. Bed linens and bath linens were the best. No tiny white scratchey towels. Very nice. As much as we enjoyed the condo, we were downstairs and the condo above us had very noisy tenants. Sounded like elephants walking!!!! Bedroom was street side and the traffic especially early morning was noisy. Overall the stay, other than having to put up with the tenants above us, was very enjoyable.
Close to everything but noisy from street traffic and neighbors.
The property itself was fine. Could use a little updating and the kitchen light didn’t work. It was close to shopping, food, and the beach which was very nice. We unfortunately had inconsiderate neighbors above us whose children bounced a basketball and ran around every night until about midnight! We had to go purchase a fan to try and drowned out the noise just to go to sleep.
Loved it !!
This is our second time staying at this property. The unit is perfect for my husband and I. The units are located on the beach so it's a short walk to the ocean. Several good places to eat are within walking distance also.
The description given for the condo: "Enjoy luxurious 400 count thread sheets, fluffy oversize bath sheets, and crystal wine glasses to name a few of the touches that set us apart. We have furnished this condo with brand new furniture,....."
Other than the four wine glasses and sheets the rest of the description is questionable. New furniture? The dresser drawer was missing a handle, the rattan chair was peeling rattan, one oversize bath towel, the other towels ordinary, two wash clothes to last 10 days, two kitchen towels to last 10. We did ask for more and promptly received more but why did we have to ask.
It was not cleaned well. Minimal surface cleaning. Don't pay attention to details.
John and Maureen were very friendly. Just wish they payed a little more attention to the condition of the condo.
So sorry to leave such a review.
