About Lori Smith
This is my family vacation home. We love the beach and want to share our home with others.

Why Lori Smith chose Gulf Shores
Gulf Shores was close to our home in Madison, MS. Its an easy drive from about anywhere in the south. The beaches are fantastic and the home is reasonably priced and we pass the savings on to you!! Its great for a week at the beach and close enough for a weekend getaway.
What makes this Condo unique
Kiva Dunes for golf, Fort Morgan, Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, The Track for go carts, Goofy golf, Outlet malls, oh yeah and the BEACH!!!

Great Beach front location for a quick getaway!
My husband and I came to Gulf Shores for a friend's wedding and chose this condo for our stay. We couldn't have chosen a better location! The condo was clean and bright and the new furniture gave the entire place a beachy vibe. I loved that the complex was on the smaller side. It's close to several restaurants and there is a company that provides beach chair and umbrella rental right outside! On Saturday, roughly an hour before we were leaving for the wedding, I discovered that the hairdryer was missing from the condo. I contacted the owner and she replied immediately and was able to get a replacement delivered ASAP. Loved it!
Thank you for the kind review!! I am so glad we were able to get you taken care of so quickly and equally glad you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores!!
Great place to stay
The condo was in good shape. It was clean the bed was very comfortable. The only complaint I have is that the cement blocks on the road that force you to go to the corner and make a U turn should be painted BRIGHT YELLOW so you can see them iwhen it is raining heavily! Thank you Brian Sutcliffe
The property overall needs updated. Tile flooring chipped and broken, cheap grade cabinets in kitchen and bathrooms. The plastic fake fronts peeling off . Black mold was present on the top, back wall of the tub. Light in hallway was burned out when we got there. We replaced the bulb. Need potholders in kitchen . Discover this after we had a pan in the oven. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and had a fabulous week ! Thank you
Glad you enjoyed your stay, however, I would have appreciated a text or call from you about anything you found not satisfactory. In the last year we have put new flooring in the bedroom, put new granite counter tops/sinks/faucets in the kitchen and bathrooms, all new appliances, new recycled patio furniture on the balcony and this year new furniture. The last thing we have to do is doing new cabinet fronts. So overall this property has been updated.
The mold you saw in the bath is from a leak in the shower head that went undetected/unreported until just prior to your arrival and was repaired 2 days prior to your arrival. We are treating it now to take care of this issue. Glad you had a fabulous week!!
Great location and very family friendly.
I stayed here over Spring break and enjoyed it! My kids are 12 and 16 and they were fine in the hallway beds. Condo has recently had some cosmetic upgrades and looked great. I would recommend this unit for a small family.
Great location - great place to stay!
We loved staying in this unit. Although there were a couple minor issues, Lori (the owner) was right on top of them, and was a pleasure to work with. Loved the location - close to everything! During our stay, we encountered "Hurricane Nate" but we made it through just fine. Can't wait to come back next year.
Beautiful condo right on the Gulf. We enjoyed every minute of our stay here.
We loved this condo. It was just the right size for me and my husband and our 22-year-old daughter who came down to spend a couple of days with us. It was neat and clean and the location made it convenient to the major restaurants and attractions. The bed was really comfortable. The only minor glitches were - no parking passes in the condo when we arrived. But after a text to the owner, they were delivered while we were out eating dinner. Also, there was only one TV remote to control both TVs in the unit (living room and bedroom) so the hubby and I had to share or I just stole it after he fell asleep on the sofa! hahaha!
We only live less than five hours away so this was a nice, much deserved and long over-due get-away for us. Thanks!
