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.

Spacious with a great view

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Gulf Shores! The Condo was very spacious with a great balcony. The ocean view was awesome. We could watch the sun rises and the sunset everyday. Cons: the condo is very outdated and needs a good scrubbing. Also, the bed and couch was very uncomfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. We just purchased a new bed for the condo, and it is a Sleep Number, which can be adjusted for comfort. We have an excellent cleaning team. Our deep clean is scheduled next month. I am glad you enjoyed your time at the beach! Please come again .

Everything was just as described. Good value, good area with lots of choices for dining. Biking and hiking trails within miles. Dolphin sightings most days and beautiful beach.

Owner's Response: Hi Tim, I am so glad you had a good time at the beach! The dolphins are really a treat to see, and every time I am down there, I make a point to watch for them. I am glad you enjoyed the dining, and walking trails. That is a good reference for future guests to know, especially coming from someone who has stayed at our condo. Thank you for your kind comments. Please come back to see us! Julie

Property not updated. Hot water ran out after one shower. Mattress in bedroom very uncomfortable . Will not be staying here again.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. I wish you had called me. I always give my number to my guests, because I want to know if you feel you are being taken care of. I will get someone out to check the hot water heater. The mattress is less than a year old. You can see from the pictures i have on my website that we are not totally updated..although we are a work in progress, but we provide a very safe and clean property for you to enjoy. Most of my guests really enjoy their stay, and many return the following year. Perhaps we are just not the condo owners to suit all your needs. We do strive to make sure everyone has a good time, and we take a lot of pride in providing the best for our guests. I am sorry we were not the condo for you,

The resting place of the mind is the heart OR that perfect spot on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

**Warning** this is a long review :)

We recently stayed at this condo in August 2016. This was not our first time staying -but it was the most important one to date.

We bragged to our families about how much we loved this area and property! After talking several family members into booking condos with us there, we exactly anticipated the getaway.

Unfortunately, that excitement was short lived. ALL of the family members that were booked to stay in the building, lost EVERYTHING (homes,cars and personal belongings) in the Louisiana Flood 2016. For weeks we gutted, demolished ,cried, laughed and threw away all material investment we ever had. During this dark period we found ways to talk ourselves out of continuing the vacation.

After explaining the situation, Ms. Julie talked me into coming anyways! Somehow she knew we needed that break more than I did!

Our families kept their reservations too. We rented cars and left all of the pain and destruction behind us. The weather was PERFECT. I heard my kids laugh for the first time in a while. My husband, children and myself stayed in this condo. We have stayed before and the condo was just as amazing as the last time. Clean.Welcoming.Relaxing.

We are now in the rebuild phase and I cant thank Julie enough for providing that "resting place " for us. You are an angel and your property reflects your heart :) We will be back soon!

Thank You!

Owner's Response: I can't express how much your review meant to me. I am so glad you had an awesome time. I can only imagine what you and your family went through. My thoughts and prayers were with all the families that were affected by this flooding. Please come again, and thank you again, for your kind words. I hope all is better your way ..
