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.

Adequate and Affordable

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here with my family of five for five nights. My general impression was that everything was fine. There were a few cleanliness issues when we arrived- a towel under the master bed (assumed to be dirty) and a blanket wadded up in the top of the closet (again, assumed to be dirty). The shower curtain was also grimy, and one of the towel bars was off the bathroom wall.

The overall unit was adequate, but needs updating and a good scrub. It's like in your mind you KNOW tons of people have stayed there before you, but you don't want to FEEL like tons of people have stayed there before you. And I definitely felt like the unit was well used.

A few positives- Julie was exceptionally easy to get in touch with and provided quick responses to questions and issues. The water pressure in the shower is excellent. The elevator on property was fast, but did break down twice while we were there (obviously not the owner's fault). We loved the balcony view and it's a super quick walk to the beach. The pool was very clean.

The issues we had didn't significantly impact our stay (we really LOVE Gulf Shores and the beach), but, when deciding how to rate our stay, i had to ask myself "Would I intentionally book this property again?" and the answer honestly is probably not. I would stay here again, but only if I couldn't find anything else in our price range. This is not the place that I'd love to return to annually.

Unbelievable view!

This was our second stay at this condo. We absolutely love the view and the owner has always been very quick to respond to any emails. It's the perfect size for our family.

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.
