About Kim Allan

Condo owners:

Kim and Lynn from Mission, British Columbia, Canada.

Kim Allan purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kim Allan chose Alabama

We got to know the Gulf Shores area by visiting some of Lynn's relatives who live here. Each trip we liked more of what we saw and realized there were lots of attractions and friendly people here. Emerald Greens is a well-located, quality year-round vacation or snow-bird resort with many included amenities and good year-round weather. Numerous recreation, restaurant, entertainment and shopping opportunities are nearby. Emerald Greens is about 1 hour from either the Pensacola or Mobile airports.

What makes this condo unique

Emerald Greens is a 10 minute drive to the white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico or to the 120-store Tanger Outlet Mall. We love to stroll over to the beautifully manicured, on-site executive golf course and play a round of golf with an electric cart all for no extra cost.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay was MORE than accommodating. The weather was great...lots of stuff to do but also lots of relaxation also. Pics do not do this condo justice! The condo was pleasantly decorated and me...I'M PICKY! lol

Centrally located for great day excursions but also tucked away from the hustle and bustle.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Just like the title reads... Simply Amazing fits perfectly. My visit to Alabama was perfect, the location of the condo from the beach is perfect, the condo itself is perfect, the grounds and pool are clean and the whole community were very nice, it felt just like home. Thank you for providing us with everything we needed and allowing us to contact you if needed. If and when I come back to Alabama, I'm coming back here!

This was our third stay in this condo, and once again we enjoyed our time there.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is close to restaurants that we enjoy, and our grandson had a great time playing golf on the course.

Very comfortable and quiet, great for relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

Great rental , good amenities , very comfortable and quiet. Nice property and very affordable, very clean and well-maintained. Owners were great about providing information about the area and attractions. I would recommend this property to anyone who is wanting a quiet and comfortable getaway. Only downside to this rental is the lack of good channels on television, poor cable company or satellite provider.

Owner's Response: Update for 2017: Thanks for your helpful review and we are glad you enjoyed your week there. In 2016 when you stayed, there were a few basic channels but as of early 2017 the condo now has better high-speed internet as well as the DirecTV Entertainment package, so there are now many speciality channels including ESPN. Also, there is a spare HDMI cable attached to the TV if a guest wishes to bring their own streaming device (i.e. Apple TV, Roku, G-Box) for the choices those devices provide. As well there are about 30+ DVDs provided to watch. Thank you!

Great time in Gulf Shores for a softball tournament

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Gulf Shores for a family vacation/softball tournament. We enjoyed our stay in Gulf Shores and had a great time. The condo was absolutely wonderful. It had everything you could possibly need for your stay. Communicating with Kim was always a courteous and prompt experience. She answered all of my questions before and during our stay. My family was very impressed with the condition of the condo. If you are looking for a clean well kept condo then this is the place. The decorations in the pictures do not do the condo justice. You can tell that the owners actually care for their property and have taken the time to keep the property in good condition. The wall art is beautiful and gave me some ideas for my own home. Lol. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessary cooking aids and utensils you may need. We made dinner one night and had everything we needed for the meal. There is a Publix and Target along with a strip mall that contained a movie theater once you come out of the complex. This was very convenient when buying ice, Gatorade and water for the games. The twin beds in the guest room worked out well for our two girls and there was plenty of space for all of their belongings. The master bedroom had really nice comfortable pillows. Although you are not on the beach it is only a short drive down a scenic strip. There is free parking on 13th street and takes you out of the traffic congestion. If you are in town for baseball or softball the fields are very close with one of the main Sports Complex around a 5 minute drive from the condo. There is a pool on the property that is nice sized and has a kids play area. There were a few families at the pool the day we went but still plenty of space to enjoy. My husband and daughters enjoyed a game of pool and table tennis in the clubhouse. The clubhouse is very well maintained too as well as the rest of the grounds in the complex. Kim was thoughtful enough of renters to have a guide book on places to eat and attractions to visit. This is very handy when trying to figuring out your game plan for eating and activities. Overall great stay and when we are back in Gulf Shores we hope to rent from Kim again.
