About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Great location in the middle of everything. Condo is 2 blocks from the 'T'. Park your car and never have to leave. Walk to the 'Hangout', the 'Pink Pony', the 'Shrinp Basket', 'Bahama Bobs', 'The Steamer', just to name a few. A GREAT view of the beautiful white sand beaches and the Gulf of Mexico. Shopping is also all w/n walking distance.

We have a large front deck with table/chairs/umbrella where you can just sit back and look at the gulf or watch the beautiful sunsets . Easy, Easy walk to the beach, just cross the street and your toes are in the sand. Our condo is on the corner of W.Beach Blvd. and W.2nd St. To make it even easier for the 6 beach chairs, 6 beach towels, and beach umbrellas that we furnish we also have a beach cart to load it in. Did I mention we have a large hard cooler and a soft cooler for the beach? We also have kids beach toys and beach mats. If you're up for biking we have 2 bikes for your use.

The living room is set up with 2 very comfy love seats, a small recliner and a chair. The bar area has 4/5 bar stools and the outside deck has 4 stools for outdoor dinning.

We have a FULLY equipped kitchen including a waffle maker, rice cooker, ice cream maker, quasadilla machine, george foreman grill, crock pot and electric fryer to fry up that fish or shrimp (on the outside deck of course) and anything else you might want or need. We have 2 very comfortable queen pillow top mattresses with feather pillows. We have 2 roll away beds located in each closet. Plenty of extra linens, pillows and blankets are provided. We have 2 full baths. There are 3 flat screen t.v.'s with 1 portable dvd in the living room. If you like the color of sand and the color of the sea you will love this condo. It has beautiful soothing colors, light, bright and airy. Unit has all fresh paint, and is very tastefully decorated. We also have a computer nook with a sky light for even more natural light. There is free wifi for your use, so don't forget the lap top. We do not have a land line so please DO NOT forget your cell phones and chargers. The unit has laminate wood floors throughout the downstairs with carpet upstairs. There are 2 decks, 1 large in front and 1 in back. From both decks and from both bedroom windows you have a full view of the beach and gulf . The condo is approx. 1,150 sq. feet. There is a laundry room with full size W/D. There is a pool on site. We do have a huge movie selection and some board games along with cards for those unexpected rainy days. Brand new A/C unit that works like a dream.

The October Shrimp Fest. is right on the beach directly in front of our condo. All you have to do is just cross over, no driving/parking hassels. Or, if you prefer you can just sit on the front deck with a cold drink and listen to the music and watch the people go by. It's GREAT!! After the last band plays each night you can sit on the deck and watch the fireworks display, Beautiful..

We absolutely love our condo. 'No granite, no stainless steel, just a very clean, fresh, and airy beach cottage style place. I know you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

About Sonjie and Danny McIver

My husband and I are from Lafayette, Louisiana. We purchased this property as an eventual retirement getaway and a place to make wonderful memories. So far it has not let us down. This is certainly our away from home haven. I try very hard to make it just as special for you. I do hope you have the opportunity to enjoy it as much as we do. I do not think you will be disapointed.

Sonjie and Danny McIver purchased this condo in 2011

Why Sonjie and Danny McIver chose Gulf Shores

I have always loved Gulf Shores. I visited as a teenager and a young adult. We absolutely fell in love with our neighbors and how close the beach is. The complex is small (only 12 units) , its cozy and very family and kid friendly. As far as the LOCATION, you just can't get any better.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is so convenient to everything. The white sand beach and the beautiful gulf is directly across the street with a great view from the front and back decks. There are restaurants/bars surrounding the condo, all w/n walking distance. One is directly across the parking lot. You can sit on the back deck and listen to the music comming from the 'Hang Out'. If you're here for the shrimp festival you just cross the street and you are there, no driving/parking, it is located directly in front of our condo on the beach. If you would rather just sit on the deck with a cold drink and listen to the bands you can do that or just people watch. Every evening after the last band plays the fireworks show is beautiful and viewed right from the deck. Life doesn't get much better than this...

Perfect Gulf Shores Condo!

  • 5 of 5

I echo all the previous reviews of this property- this place is AMAZING! Super cute condo and PERFECT location! Sonjie was so helpful during the booking process and was even more helpful sending us recommendations on places to visit while in Gulf Shores. All the "neighbors" we met in the complex were so friendly and a pleasure to hang out with in the evenings. I love that this complex has a shared deck for everyone to sit out on and get to know one another. So fun!! All the restaurants Sonjie suggested were outstanding and although we went at a very busy time of the year and had to wait- it was well worth the wait every time. The beach was crowded but not overly crowded- plenty of room for us to set out our chairs & umbrella each day and still be far enough from the next person to not feel like we were right on top of each other. I would highly recommend this property and hope we are able to use it again in the future. It was my first time to Gulf Shores and I will DEFINITELY be back!!

This is a great location with a quaint homey feel to make your beach experience great!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked in, we had to go explore all of the cute rooms. The decor is fabulous and inviting. The location was prime as we were able to walk to the Hangout and to get food and entertainment. Both the front and back decks have a great view that made us want to sit there for hours. Also, the extras provided in the storage room saved us space traveling since we didn’t have to pack the essentials. Upon arival, we had a question, and the owners contacted us in a very timely manner to help us get it all figured out. Because of the storm, we also took full advantage of the great movie and game selection. I would definitely suggest this location to anyone who is looking for an easy beach location. Hope to visit again soon!
