Beautiful Gulf Shores Condo with Fabulous Gulf-Front Views!!!!
average rating of 4.9375 based on 130 reviews

Really nice!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as advertised. It had everything we needed and the beds were very comfortable. The sliding glass doors were difficult to open but well worth the effort for the beautiful view. Thanks for all the info sent ahead of time. This was a great place that we will come back to when visiting Gulf Shores.

One of the best family trips we have taken!! We will be back! Melissa is VERY responsive!

  • 5 of 5

I spent hours pouring over listing on VRBO before picking this one, and I feel that the description and reviews are very accurate!! For me, the BEST feature of this condo is the view from the LARGE balcony! It is so awesome to open your sliding doors and feel like you are on the beach. The sound of the waves never gets old! The space was perfect for us - we had 2 adults in the master, and our two kids in the second room. The open floor plan was nice for the kids, they played in the living room and out on the balcony when we weren't outside. I liked being on the 4th floor because if I didn't want to wait for the elevator or wanted some exercise I just took the stairs. I used the exercise room almost every day - it's not fancy but it overlooks the beach! The location in Gulf Shores is perfect too - you can walk to the Hangout (one mile) and you are close to Dollar General and lots of other shops. There is a small grocery store across the street - perfect if you need something last minute. I think some places are much farther from these amenities.

Melissa is totally on the ball with everything. I think her phone is always with her because she responds in hours if you need anything! We had 2 small maintenance issues while we were there. The door to the oven was loose and the sink backed up once. She had a maintenance person at our place the same day (within hours).

Other feedback: I 100% feel this unit deserves a 5 star review, but here are some notes to help you if you book this place. Bring spices, zip lock bags, Tupperware, if you want those things. They are not provided - I've stayed at other places that had some of those basics. Some of the kitchen equipment could use an upgrade - for example some of the knives/veggie peeler weren't very sharp. Also, the internet was spotty, but that might be the whole area or building. Next time, I will bring fruit fly traps from home because even though we kept the kitchen clean, we had some fruit flies around the sink. I never said anything to Melissa about any of these things because the pros WAYYYYYYYYYYY outweigh any little inconveniences like these :)

In summary, the best thing I can say about this place is that it's so awesome we never felt the need to go anywhere else and that made our week truly relaxing and memorable. We never went to the Hangout, played mini golf, and rarely went out to eat because this condo/pool/hot tub is so amazing! You won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Wow! What a wonderful review. Thank you so much! I thought that we had new knives in the unit, but maybe they haven't been delivered yet. If not, I will get the new ones put in right away...and a new veggie peeler! Ha! I try to always have tupperware in the unit and last time I checked we did, but the problem is that renters take it with them when they leave. And, if there are spices or ziplock bags in the unit, I can never guarantee that they will be there for the next renter. That is why I provide a packing list before you arrive, so you will know what to bring with you. Thank you so much for the awesome review! We love this condo too and we try to take excellent care of it for our renters!

This was our first time at Gulf Shores, we usually stay in Florida. The beach was clean, nice and not crowded, however the water was not clear. I know that is not anyone's fault. Just expected it to be. The condo overall was okay for a smaller condo with less amenities. There was always security present and easy parking but the pool was horrible(small, too warm) just not one you can relax by and also stare at the beach. We did enjoy our unit! It was comfortable and had most everything we needed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for renting from us and I am glad you liked our condo! With 119 5-star reviews that say how great this complex is and how awesome our beaches are, I am confident that the majority of renters like this place! The pool isn't very large, however, with a larger pool comes a larger complex, more crowds, longer wait at the elevator, more noise. We like it quiet and small! 119 5-star reviews say it all. I guess we can't please everyone, but I am happy that we please most!

Great condo, directly on the beach with all the necessities!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the beach view of Crystal Shores 405! Our balcony had a table and 6 chairs where we could enjoy a meal with our beautiful view. 2 bedrooms and a pull out couch along with 2 full baths made for a great stay for our family of 5. Master bedroom had a king size bed and a balcony entrance, I loved hearing the ocean from our room! Kitchen provided all appliances needed, including full size fridge with ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, oven, toaster oven, 2 coffee makers, etc. It was nice to have our own parking spot and the condo provided carts to load luggage up to the floor on 1 of 2 elevators. The only negative I can think of is the indoor/outdoor pool is pretty small for the days that you can't be out on the beach, but our kids still enjoyed it while we waited for the rain to stop. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Crystal Shores. We were comfortable and had easy access to the beach. The pool was a little smaller than I imagined but it was rarely busy so my 1-year-old who didn't care too much for the sand and ocean spent lots of time there. We loved the view from the condo... we saw dolphins two different mornings! One of my favorite things was the balcony... lots of room and plenty of seating. It was a memorable visit. :)

Our condo is very centrally located to many shops and restaurants! And, we're walking distance to Bahama Bob's Restaurant (great burgers and Bushwacker cocktails) and The Hangout (great restaurant on the beach with live entertainment nightly).
