condo was amazing. Gorgeous and spacious

  • 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.

Larger than expected

  • 5 of 5

I was shocked at the size the moment I walked in, the posted photos do not do it justice. The overall feel of the place is clean, spacious, and very homey and cozy. The beach is right across the street and there is a perfect spot on the balcony facing the water for morning coffee or evening glass of wine. My only regrets were not bringing my k-cups for the keurig and not being able to stay longer! We will definitely be back soon.

Honeymoon getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Very spacious and close to the beach and easy access to the beach. Not far from the Hangout, which is always a fun venue, and other restaurants. Very comfortable and big with lots to do nearby!
