We've stayed at the Beach Club 4 times prior to this trip, but this was our 1st time in Avalon penthouse #1. Everything about the place is top notch. Master suite and bath are huge. All 4 bedrooms have their own private bath. 3 of the 4 bedrooms have king beds. Master suite has a door to the main balcony, which can also be accessed from 3 doors in the living room. Main balcony is L shaped facing the gulf and east toward Gulf Shores. 2 other bedrooms share a balcony facing east that have a beautiful view of both the gulf and the bay. The floor plan of the place begins at the entrance where there is a long hallway with 3 bedrooms. The hallway leads to the huge open kitchen, dining, living area. The kitchen contains everything you'll need for any meal preparation. Dining area has a large table for 8. Wet bar has an ice maker which provided all the ice we needed for 4 days on the beach. The living area has 2 sofas, 1 facing tv and built in shelves, the other facing outside. The master is just off the main living area and has windows overlooking the gulf and the pools. The Beach Club has always been our favorite place on the gulf, but this place has just made it our only choice for future trips here.

Beautiful sunrises, gorgeous sunsets

  • 5 of 5

In this luxurious condo, you get to experience God's beauty at its best. There is never a time of the day or night you cannot sit on the Penthouse balcony and be amazed. Get your groceries and you never have to leave the complex. Our family (parents, children and grandchildren) stayed for one week and never needed to go out to buy anything! We did enjoy some of the restaurants at the Beach Club and some nearby local restaurants (never need to go into Gulf Shores unless you want to). The condo is beautifully decorated and VERY comfortable. This was our 2nd summer staying there. It is well equipped and kitchen is large, along with great seating for meals. We cooked in three nights and found everything we needed. The beds are comfortable and each bedroom has its own bathroom and tv. We will go again when we can get everyone together--it has become a home away from home. Thank you to the Alexanders for sharing their special home.

Private-ish. Residents very welcoming to travelers. Not same benefits/amentities as Spectrum guests

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed stay. The amenities and discounts are not equal to Spectrum guests, which was disappointing not to know up front. Heard the activities at the front gate were fun, but too far off course for kids to walk by themselves. Food trucks looked good, but don't believe a desert truck like ice cream, shaved ice, etc was available. Beach was really busy right at resort, but eased up down further away from main buildings. Pools available to VRBO guests were fun and not too full of people. View was spectacular. Saw dolphins a couple of times, some large cranes, ducks and ducklings, fish, and beware of jellyfish. Rentals on property didn't have availability for 2 Seado type simultaneously. Banana boat was a blast! Had to go off property for dual rental of personal water craft.. Beach was very clean.

Our property had at least 10 lights not functioning. Cleaning was not thorough (mold and mildew in baths, some dishes and Cooking utensils dirty, stained towels, etc) Cooking tools were adequate for making good meals in. Well kept grounds and polite employees anxious to make stay relaxing.

Over all, it was nice, but disappointed in cleanliness and repair issues on furniture, lights etc at our condo. We did get to relax and enjoy a pretty week at the beach!

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

We Loved the Condo... there were a few things that weren't great, the lighting was strange and some lights didn't work. The washer/dryer is very loud and the dryer took a LONG time to dry towel. Other than that, it was super. The property is very nice. I think the building we were in (Avalon) needed some updating (hall ways are pretty dingy). I didn't care for how crowded the beach was and the fact that if you don't rent an umbrella/beach chairs you have to 'sit in the back' with no view and almost no access to the beach. My Grandkids loved the pools. I really liked the food trucks and that space... very nice to have that convenience on the property. I didn't care for the whole club house thing where you had to buy an armband every day....I felt the pricing was ridiculous for the benefit... Overall a very good experience.
