About David Rapson

I purchased this unit originally as an investment to assist in paying for my kids college. Well a few hurricanes and an oil spill later that did not happen. So please help keep that plan glimmering by renting this unit. My family and I live in Georgia, and love to get down to the beautiful beaches and unit as often as we can. We also love sharing it with family and friends.

David Rapson purchased this condo in 2003

Why David Rapson chose Gulf Shores

After looking into investment property from the coast of Florida to Alabama, we were blown away with the beauty of Gulf Shores. It was within close driving distance to cities in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi.

What makes this condo unique

The biggest benefit of staying in this unit is the view of the ocean, the sunrises and most of all the relaxation it provides.

Don't stay here --unless you want the best beach view in Gulf Shores !

  • 5 of 5

Perfect condo. If you are looking for fancy furnishings, this is not it..'Very comfortable furniture, no need to worry about your kids breaking something, this condo seems childproof. Close to elevator. Great in and out pool. Only steps to the beach. Security is good, $25 parking fee for each car(can have 2 cars). Wonderful for our short vaca for some R & R. Will be back. Owner quickly responds to any questions you may have.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. We do try to keep the furnishings simple as you can imagine the wear and tear on the unit! We are constantly upgrading things every year. Just upgraded mattresses and some new furniture next!

Excellent location. Attention needed to details.

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location. We were able to walk right out of the lobby, down the boardwalk to the beach. Beautiful views of the sunrise in the morning. However, there are several issues with the condo and property management that need to be addressed. These were shared with the owner.

Owner's Response: We so appreciate feedback. This helps us keep our property in top shape. Regarding this review we had our local manager for the property on vacation and had given the guest the wrong local contact which was frustrating to them. We have a lock box on the unit and the guest had issues opening. The other items were very minor and were addressed very quickly with the guest and some were addressed after stay. I do think this guest thought more of this as a hotel service CS a rent by owner program!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The beach was fabulous! We got to actually watch Sea Turtles hatch! It was an amazing sight, and one we will never forget. There were dolphins to watch in the morning and evening. Our condo was close to everything we needed. The Pier 33 Grocery was right across the street, so we could just walk over and grab anything we needed. Both the outdoor pool and hot tub were nice, and there was an indoor pool and hot tub if we had needed it for inclement weather. The condo had plenty of room for 4 adults. The owner was very easy to work with. We had a minor problem with a light when we got there- I just called David up, and he had it fixed within the hour. The only thing that we would like to see changed would be the living room furniture, since we could not all sit comfortably together. The balcony view was wonderful and the chairs comfortable. Overall, a great place to stay, and we can't wait to go back! Thank you!
