Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

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

Why Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
