Guestbook comments from the manager

Moonraker #1 was a nice place to relax. The Staff at Poole and Associates was excellent to deal with. The unit was very clean and was very quiet. Just across the street from the beach. I would refer this unit to a friend.

I knew we were getting a small place and paying less compared to other places around Moonraker. However, our room was super hot. No air in the bathroom so trying to get ready was a nightmare with it being so hot. There were bugs and mouse droppings in the room. I couldn't wait for our vacation to be over and get out of that room. Needs major updates in looks and the flow of the air units. Doesn't have a/c. There were outlets not covered and the way the cable was ran and just hanging from the tv was just poor on whoever installed it. Won't be coming back to visit at Moonraker.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry to hear about your stay, we really wish you would have let us know of these issues so that we could have done something to better accommodate you. Let me go ahead and address your concerns... There are two (2) A/C units in this small condo and they will freeze you out. There is one brand new a/c unit in the bedroom as well as a larger unit in the living area. We have serviced the main unit and it's working great! We could not find any evidence of bugs or mice, this complex, like most others, have pest control contracts and they are sprayed and treated monthly, basically eliminating this issue. All outlets are covered and yes the TV is a wall mount, we will look into re-running the cable wires to see if there is a better way. Thanks for the review!

Loved the location. Enjoyed being able to go out on the balcony and feel the ocean breeze.

Enjoyed our condo. Was able to save some money by using the condo facilities. They even had a small indoor grill. We were left a dishwasher pod...but our condo didn't have a dishwasher. The condo was very comfortable and clean. Bed was comfortable and they left plenty of extra linens and towels. Really enjoyed it.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Gulf Shores. Although the weather was rainy and wet most of the time we were there, the room was perfect! Exactly what we were looking for for our family vacation. Short walk to the beach was very convenient! Will definitely stay here again for our next trip!!

Location, location, location. The MoonRaker was a great place to stay in walking distance for hangout. It's about 15-20 minute walk. Quiet, clean, and perfect.

Directly across from the beach and has beach access but a hassle if you have small children. They provide plenty of linen and there is a descent size porch/ balcony but no privacy. There is a sign in the living room that says "no smoking" but there was an entire bucket of cigarette buds on the balcony. The couch is torn and needs to be replaced along with a few other broken items such as dresser mirror, closet door, etc. The pool area had areas of broken gating/ fencing that was taped off by caution tape... Again, not good for children. There is no iron or ironing board. It smelt stale the moment we walked in to the point that we went to Dollar General and bought air fresheners. It definitely needs to be renovated but it is a fair price for your money considering what you are getting. Be sure to bring your own toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap (no dishwasher), etc.

Owner's Response: The unit is across the street from the beach and offers a good budget alternative to the pricier beach side units. We are sorry to hear that the cleaner missed the cigarette butts on the balcony where smoking is allowed by the owner - the no smoking sign is for the inside of the unit. We have brought the pool issues to the attention of the association and they should be getting them taken care of. We hope to see you back again soon for another vacation her in Gulf Shores.

Prefect Small Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I surprised our two children with a trip this year. This condo was perfect for the four of us. I can see that the owners have been working towards repairs from previous reviews. We had excellent customer service when we called to have one minor repair (a light tightened.) The pool is clean, and the walk to the beach is literally across the street. I'm not sure that you can book anything in Gulf Shores for such great prices.
