Perfect place for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Everything was GREAT at Shore Duty 205! We had 14 people and everyone really enjoyed the place! The condo is very spread out and very nice! Parking is great, there is public parking right near if u need more than two cars! The kitchen is completely stocked with everything u can imagine! Washer and dryer work good! There are three showers! The master is HUGE! Really a nice place for large group! There is a loft with two areas for sleeping, it can get noisy up there when trying to sleep and someone gets up early so put the early risers up there! Lol! They have a very large quantity of towels and wash clothes, no need to bring any! We walked to the beach everyday, not far at all! There is one store restaurant liquor store within walking! 15 min walk! Very close drive to a lot of restaurants or stores! All in all a very nice experience!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was amazing. Gorgeous and spacious. Perfect for large group. The kids loved the lofts and we got our own privacy in the master suite. When we return to gulf shores we would like to stay at shore duty again. Loved the kitchen. And great views.

This Place was Breathtaking!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family needed a much needed vacation and we stayed at Shore Duty for an entire week. I was very impressed with the pictures online, but I can honestly say the pictures don't do this place justice. This place was so big!!! The kitchen was huge and you could host at least 15 people for dinner and be very comfortable. My wife has a lot of family in Biloxi and we did have a dinner for 13 and everyone was blown away with how nice and spacious this place was.

Being a man, I loved the huge TV in the living room with DVD players all over the condo. The master bedroom/bathroom blew me and my wife away. I could lay in bed and look out the window and see the ocean.

I could go on and on, but I think you get the point. The owners have made sure this place has everything you need plus some!

I will be back next year!!!! If you're wanting a relaxing vacation, this is your place. For a week, I felt like a high roller. The only bad experience was having to leave.

Annual Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was just our Second Annual Family Vacation and this place made it by far better than last years. With very little time to plan, since my parents did not give us kids lots of time, we were having a difficult time finding a place that could house 13 people. We initially wanted to go to Pensacola, FL but ended up in Gulf Shores and let me tell you, we are all glad we did. This house was everything we could have asked for except for not being right on the beach. This is why we give this house a 5 star rating. We knew going into it that it was a block away and even with that, it was not bad. We were able to cook and all be in the kitchen at the same time. As a matter of fact all the grandkids would sit and eat on the island while the adults took the table. The kids loved the loft and thought it was very cool. Overall, if you are looking for a place to be and have kids with you, this is it. We are already making plans for our next vacation and are seriously considering this house again.
