Nice but needs repairs.
The location is indeed very close to the beach, probably the fastest access to the gulf shore in the whole building. As this is a ground floor condo, anyone interested should be aware that the front door faces the busy parking lot, so other renters/resident's vehicles are just a couple of feet from the only entrance. The window to the front bedroom is on the same wall as the front door, so there is potential for lots of noise in that bedroom, although we did not have any noise issues during our stay. The main pool is just below the balcony, so be prepared for noise when it is open. The condo management is very strict about residents observing pool hours and make people leave when it's closed.
The apartment was mostly clean, despite finding a small sock in the chandelier upon arrival. The appliances are all functional but have seen some use, the kitchen was well-stocked with various dishes, utensils, pots and pans. The lights over the stove were burned out, so we called to have them replaced but they never were. The patio furniture is weathered, a little rusty and not very comfortable. The cable to all three TVs are run via an co-axial cable instead of HDMI, so TVs won't show the entire image and aren't actually HD. There was no hot water for a shower on the first night (only) around 10pm. We asked about that the next morning but got no answer.
All of the above were no big deal, typical of a beach rental and did not affect our stay negatively. The one issue that did, however, was with the master bed. When we first sat on it, the not-so-great mattress and/or box springs buckled under us, making it uneven. We didn't investigate why until we were leaving to make sure nothing was under the bed. It was then we discovered that the standard metal bed frame was broken, and several bricks were stacked being used to holdup the middle of the bed. Apparently they had shifted at collapsed at some point. I took pictures and will submit them if possible. Before you reserve, make sure a new bed frame has been purchased.
Robert - thank you so much for taking the time to leave a very detailed review. I know it is helpful for us as well as future renters. We are having the bed frame repaired / replaced ASAP but we appreciate you letting us know. I hope it didn't affect your stay or cause the bed to be too uncomfortable. We hope that you'll be able to bring your family back and see us again very soon. Thank you so much!
The Perfect Spot
If it were for sale, we'd talk. This condo was the perfect spot for our family - beautiful inside, can park right outside the door, overlooks the pool, right next to the indoor pool, just steps away from the beach and close to the grocery store. The perfect spot for our last summer run to OB.
Gene - we couldn't be more excited that you had a wonderful time while in Orange Beach! We are thrilled that you chose to rent with us for your last summer getaway. We hope that you'll come back and see us very soon! Or better yet, maybe we can work something out to where you can buy a place in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach and have a permanent vacation spot! :)
Relaxing beautiful family vacation!!
Condo was spacious and kept up. Our kids and adults enjoyed how close the beach is! Indoor pool was a nice treat to cool off in. Outdoor pool was ok size but didn't bother us to much as we spent most of our time at the beach!! Kitchen needs a few more large frying pans but other than that had everything else we needed to cook our meals. We will go back and recommend highly.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and give us your feedback! We will definitely look into getting more large frying pans to accommodate the groups that rent this condo. We truly appreciate you leaving a fantastic review and hope that you'll come back and visit us again very soon!
I love this unit!
This was my second time staying in Summer Chase 107. The location is convenient and the unit is well equipped and comfortable.
We can't wait to share your wonderful comments with the owner - they will certainly enjoy the positive feedback you've given for this unit. We hope you'll make this an annual visit and stay in the same location each time. We love to see families coming back year after year and making wonderful memories with their family. Thank you for choosing to stay with us - we hope to see you soon!
Very nice! Functional kitchen and bathroom. pool was too noisy at night.
We loved our stay here! The kitchen had everything we needed. The bathrooms were very nice with plenty of linens provided. I liked being able to keep laundry done easily. It was nice that the washer and dryer worked at the same time. (A place we've stayed before had a stacked unit that only allowed one at a time in use) The fridge got very warm one night and the icemaker stopped working. The controls on the fridge were locked out so we couldn't fix it ourselves. The liason for Kaiser was very polite and prompt in getting this issue fixed. The only downfall was the pool being right outside the bedroom window. It was noisy even at nearly midnight one night and also makes it awkward to set on the balcony when there are people in the pool. Nevertheless we would definitely stay here again!
Good Location and Easy Access to the Beach
Overall this is a great property. We enjoyed our stay and would go back. Here are some pros and cons to help you decide if this is the place for you.
Pros-Able to park right outside front door
Don't have to use elevator or go through the main doors to access
The location of the unit is on the corner of the building. You can go straight from the
parking lot into the unit. It creates a feeling of being away from the other units.
Easy access to beach. It's out the door and around the corner.
Great view of the beach and gulf from balcony
Balcony is right above the pool
Perfect size for a couple or single family (1 king, 2 fulls and sleeper sofa)
Has an ice machine
There is a beach chair service on the beach if you need it
Cons-Property is a little dated. It has a few scratches and dents(nothing major)
Couldn't get the jacuzzi tub to work
Manager needs to turn ice machine and refrigerator on sooner so they are cool
Balcony is right above pool so there is the possibility of noise from the pool if that
