About Julie Boothe

We are happily married (30 year anniversary this summer) and retired from the military.

Julie Boothe purchased this condo in 2011

Why Julie Boothe chose Alabama

We are driving distance from Gulf Shores, and we have always wanted a beach front condo. We chose this property because it was beautifully decorated, and very clean. We put our own personal touch in it, so that when we visit, we feel like we are at home.

What makes this condo unique

Amazing sunsets from the balcony, and if you are lucky, you can dolphins swimming during the morning hours. We are also close to shopping centers, and resturants. A small grocery store is just across the street for the last minute items that may have been forgotten.

Great place! Close to good restaurants

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I loved the view and was close to all the great eating places. We arrived the day of the tropical storm and the view of the huge waves was awesome (thankfully had beautiful weather the rest of the trip!!) julie was quick with answering questions thru call and text! Only suggestion we have is maybe a new mattress in big bedroom. it was not very comfortable and we actually ended up sleeping on the bunk mattresses. Overall great place to stay!

We were all very pleased

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I didn't give five stars is because we had to go buy toilet paper and paper towels even though we were supplied one roll of each. The one rolls were simply not enough for a family of four, but everything else was fantastic! The condo was very clean and the view from the balcony was breathtaking. Our beds were not very comfy but we have tempupedic at home so no bed is as comfy as ours. The entire complex looks to be a bit older but all in all we were very happy with our accommodations.

Great Family Beach Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Julie's condo--it was clean, comfortable and perfect for what we needed. The balcony looks right over the beach, you can easily hear the surf, see tons of pelicans and herons, even dolphins. There's easy access to the sand and Gulf Shores. There were lots of families on the beach, and our kiddos made friends quickly. We also kayaked one day in the bay--look for "Paddled by You" in Orange Beach--it was a great outfit! Julie, the owner was very easy to contact and was quick to respond to any questions we had while we were there. We hope to go back next year and stay in the same place!

Great little vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this condo during a long weekend for a friends wedding. This was a great little vacation rental. It was the perfect size for us and it looks just like the pictures. We loved looking out over the water on the private balcony and watching the birds and the beach goers. :)
