About Bryan and Laura

My wife and I own this condo as something that we can come down and enjoy ourselves but also rent to others. During our search, we fell in love with Grand Caribbean and felt it was perfect for our family.

Bryan and Laura purchased this condo in 2011

Why Bryan and Laura chose Alabama

We chose this complex because of its proximity to everything on the Alabama Coast. With only 108 units, we loved the quiet and private atmosphere. No mass of crowds or having to walk through a large reception area in your bathing suit to get to and from the pool or beach. Grand Caribbean is located near the intersection of Perdido Beach Blvd. and Hwy 161 (Foley Beach Express). During the busy season, we do not have to wait in traffic because we bypass Foley and Gulf Shores via the Foley Beach Express!!! VERY Convenient!

What makes this condo unique

Love the relaxing and quiet atmosphere at the Grand Caribbean. With only 108 units in the complex, there is a more sense of a home feeling. The extreme cleanliness and personal feeling of home is what made us buy a condo here. Relaxing on the balcony or strolling through the walking path and boat watching is one of the things we love to do. My husband loves the county bike path that starts behind the condo.

  • 5 of 5

This place makes for a great stay at the beach! Our weekend consisted of easy access to the beach and pool, a great location for the amenities around us, and enough room for everyone! We could not have asked for a better trip, and stay, and we will definitely be going back!

Good place! Good price!

  • 4 of 5

The place was very clean. The beds were very comfortable. Kitchen had everything you need, nothing fancy. It was across from the beach. You can walk but it's pretty far. There is parking across the way, so not a big deal. We didn't use the pool but seemed clean!

Nice Property but not exactly what we needed.

  • 4 of 5

First, let me say I have no complaints about the description or the property. The condo was clean and as described but I will also tell why the property did not suit my family and why I will look a little more closely at certain details for future visits. We are a family of 6, 5 adults and one baby and we travel with lots of "stuff", baby gear, beach equipment, fishing gear, and cooking supplies. I wanted a condo that slept 6 and had at least 2 bathrooms. In the future, I will also take into consideration the square footage, seating, pool location, and traffic noise.

This condo sleeps 6, with the sofa pullout which was not a problem and exactly what we expected but the condo size did not work well for the six of us and our gear. We had stuff stacked everywhere with no space to relax. The person on the couch did not have a good place for his clothes. In the second bedroom, there was a large safe in the closet so they also did not have a place to put away their things. There is only living room seating for 4 people, dining seating for 4 people, and balcony seating for 4 people. Master bedroom was adequate for the two of us and our things. I also had to wash towels everyday to have enough towels for the 6 of us.

This condo is on the second floor and we had a partial water view and could see dolphins at certain times. However we could not see the beach or crashing waves. I think the view would have been better from a different floor. Is is across the busy road from the beach but with the cross walk we did not have any trouble walking to the beach even with all our stuff. It was exactly 1,000 steps (by my steps) to the beach using the crosswalk.

There was a ball team at the complex and at times it was rather noisy from the pool ( a couple of mornings before 6:00 am), although I feel like that is just the luck of when you are there. Also, because of the road, you can not hear the ocean and there was always noise at the pool and on the balcony from the street.

I cooked everyday, sometimes twice. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Some of the cookware could be updated but it served its purpose.

I don't give the condo a negative review, but would not book it for us in the future primarily due to space. I think it would better suit 4 people.

Clean and well kept condo

  • 4 of 5

Nice condo with nice view. Directly across from the public beach and accessible restrooms, always a plus with small children. Safe walkway for crossing the street and close to supermarket and drugstore. Had a couple hiccups but owners were quick to respond and assist as needed.

Well appointed condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was clean and had everything we needed (except a hair dryer, so bring that!) and despite facing a busy highway, was silent inside. We loved it and thought it was a nice value for our dollar. We would stay here again.
