About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Paradise Found at Sea Oats Condominiums is a wonderful place to kick back, relax and enjoy the natural beauty of God's creation.We are in Building F on the second floor Our unit fronts the Little Lagoon and has a wonderful view of the water as well as the beautiful sunsets. We have a spacious 7 acres with access to the Gulf of Mexico right across the street with a board walk onto the beach.

The two huge pools and baby pool that our complex have are added attractions that some prefer over the gulf. There are gazebos with charcoal grills ready to fire up for that great barbecuing and piers to fish and crab from , and boat tie ups as well as boat launching all on our premises. The Little Lagoon connects with the Gulf of Mexico. There is a passage for boats to come and go.

Our family orientated atmosphere is very noticeable. We are about 2 miles west of down town Gulf Shores. We are close enough to be very connected, yet far away not to have the heavy traffic and noise. Once you come to Paradise Found, you'll want to come back. I can guarantee you that.

About The Owner

I grew up coming to the beach every year. My parents and siblings and then sibling families all came to the beach yearly. We loved it. It was a place to get away from the daily routine. It was something we all reveled at being together, enjoying the beach, the sun, the sand, and the great seafood. I love the beach. The waving of the gulf, the tides, the sea shells we collect all make memories of a special time together.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1998

Why The Owner chose Gulf Shores

I bought this particular haven because we have 8 beautiful grandchildren that range in age from 20 to 4. They are 4 boys and 4 girls. They love to come to the condo with their families and feel like it is their home away from home. All of us do. It is just such a perfect place for families to vacation.

What makes this condo unique

You know, after being in the sun and walking the beach, I sleep better. The food taste better here. We enjoy cooking local shrimp and seafood as well as eating at the abundant delicious restaurants. It is so peaceful. We also get to meet so many nice people from other places that love to come to this complex too. It is a delight.

Could use updating, but as far as location and value, it would be hard to find a better rental.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Gulf Shores. The condo was nice and very clean, although dated.

As mentioned, the appliances are older, but they do work just fine. The beds were comfortable, and the living room offers more than ample seating options. One nice touch is the very large dining room table. We traveled with two other families and the view from our condo was by far the best.

As mentioned, there are many many stairs to climb, but the winch did help a great deal.

We would definitely stay there again.

Clean,nicely decorated. VERY well stocked,comfortable bed. super sized stand alone ice maker.nice TV's even in kitchen. electric winch on deck to haul stuff to condo,PERFECT view of sunset over the bay, two nice fishing docks very nice pavilion by the bay with charcoal grills. two large clean swimming pools, walk across the street to the awesome beach with boardwalk and showers on both sides of the road. Owner was nice and very helpful.

Ok, That's the short version. We stayed the weekend here with our kids on the way to Orlando. If I had it to do over , we might have just stayed here all week :) When I say well stocked , I mean it had everything I would think you should need. Pots,pans,coffee makers,electric griddle,pressure cooker,etc. etc. etc. The complex was well taken care of and much nicer than pictures. The two pools were large,clean and weren't crowded. It was a very short walk to the beach with a dedicated access with showers to wash off the sand. The beach was nice and clean. There was a jellyfish problem when we were there but it was the entire beach and we heard that it was over a few days after we left. I was completely satisfied, but here are a few things to consider. It is on the second floor and the stairs are step. It is an older unit and appliances are older. the dryer was a little tricky and took a little time to dry clothes for us. But, EVERYTHING worked fine. There is one covered parking space and then extra parking around pools. So if you have more than two cars it might be tricky. That being said, I research things to death, It drives my wife CRAZY! I looked at different condos for weeks before deciding on this one and have absolutely no regrets. It felt like home when you walked in. Just book it, You will not find better for the price. Thanks Lynne for letting us stay at your place.

Our first condo rental experience and this place had plenty of room for everyone (7 adults, 2 children, 1 infant). Plenty of dishes and towels. The in-condo laundry, microwave, and ice machine were great to have. Very nice view of sunsets from the back porch. The beach is great with plenty of space and seashells. The owner was very easy to work with and easy to contact during our stay to answer any questions we had. Hope to be back again.

My family and our visitors from Germany enjoyed our stay at this condo very much. It is spacious, clean and comfortable. The view of the lagoon is beautiful. We would love to stay there again.
