About The Owner

My occupation is caring for my home and managing three condos in Gulf Shores, AL. My husband and I have four grown kids and two border collies (mother and daughter combo). I've jogged for 30 years, including all four pregnancies. I surprised my husband recently with his dream muscle car . . . a 2010 red Dodge Challenger STR8. He was speechless for the first time in his life!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Alabama

Because I love the beach and it is within an easy day's drive of our home. I like the fact I can drive here from home and not fool with airplanes and security. The stores and restaurants that I am familiar with are here. The atmosphere in Gulf Shores is very family friendly. The outlet mall in Foley, AL, is a welcome attraction for shoppers. It's just a pleasant place to be.

What makes this condo unique

Running on the beach. Playing with the dogs on the beach. Biking forever up and down Highway 182, the road that runs along the beach. Just sitting on the balcony and listening to the ocean. Sleeping in the sun on the balcony. Reading a book in the middle of the day. Watching the dolphins in the water and the pelicans fly by at eye level. Spending an afternoon building a sandcastle with my family. Seeing the light on the ocean from a full moon. Stopping to watch the sun set and marveling at God's handiwork.

Guestbook comments from the owner

San Carlos 1908 Review



The San Carlos Condo 1908 looking west has a delightful sunset view form the dining area and the balcony too. The Gulf and beach view is great too.



We especially enjoyed watching the dolphins go by and the para-sailing as the weather gets warmer.



The accommodations suited us very comfortably and the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans



and dishes etc.



All in all – a very pleasant place to stay.

Owner's Response: I hope you can return. I wish I could tell you you could bring your dog, but our condo association only allows owners to bring their dogs. Sorry. We know you have many choices in condos, and we feel very grateful that you have chosen to stay with us several times.

Excellent condo at perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a fantastic time at this condo. Excellent views, very clean and in great condition. Easy walking distance to plenty of shops, restaurants, and of course the beach. I highly recommend this place as it was exactly as described, and M.J. was a fantastic person to deal with along the way. Very helpful and quick to respond. Thank you very much - we will be back!

Great place with a great view.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the stay. It was clean and very nice. I would stay again. The rental company the owner uses is honest. My wife left her rings when we checked out and didn't notice until the next morning when unpacking her bags. We reported it to the rental company and filled out the paper work and had them back a few days later.

Owner's Response: I did not know your wife left her rings at the condo. I'm happy to learn she got them back. You are correct; it speaks very well for my management company. Please come back and stay with us in the future.

A great condo in a great building

  • 5 of 5

As snowbirds we were able to stay in the condo for the months of January and February. We have stayed in the building before because of it's convenient location. 1908 is the cleanest condo we have ever rented in the area and that spans a 20 year period. M.J. (the owner) was great to work with and very prompt dealing with any issues we had during our stay. We enjoyed our stay so much that we booked it for next year before we left. I can't wait to get back.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to have you spend two months in our condo. Gulf Shores is a lovely place to pass the winter months. We're glad you are returning in 2016.

Best View on the Gulf!

  • 5 of 5

Extremely nice and clean condo! Plenty of room for at least up to 6 adults. Best view on the Gulf from the balcony! Excellent location! Can easily park on arrival and not move car again until your vacation is over, walking distance to everything. Great owner to deal with! Thanks again M.J.!
