Why Claire chose Gulf Shores

We purchased our condo at The Beach Club 17 years ago so we could have a central location for all of family--children, spouses and grandchildren to meet for a family vacation. Every year we have vacationed here and can hardly wait until the next summer to be together again. We have enjoyed the amusement parks, tennis, putt-putt golf, shopping, parasailing and even late Saturday afternoon weddings on the beach right in front of our condo. We have many golfers in our family who also enjoy the local golf courses--Peninsula Golf Club and Kiva Dunes Golf Cub. Of course, we also look forward to enjoying delicious seafood found at many of the local restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

Our family enjoys both our private beach just a short distance over the walkway and also the beachfront pool. We have unlimited access to all of the facilities at The Beach Club Beachfront Clubhouse including a large outdoor pool, hot tub, kiddie pool, pool-side restaurant, fitness center, saunas, indoor pool, steam room, video game room and tennis courts. It's so nice to be able to rent beach umbrellas and chairs down on the beach while watching the children build sand castles or swim in the Gulf. Of course, the condo is always waiting for those who enjoy reading, playing games, working jigsaw puzzles, watching TV, cooking a favorite recipe or just relaxing with a good book on the balcony.

Fantastic Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far one of the best vacations we've ever had. We took our children and grandchildren and there was plenty of room for everyone and always something for everyone to do. The condo was beautiful and very spacious. The balcony was huge and was cool enough to sit out there all day. The location couldn't have been better - we didn't feel like it was too crowded. The staff was very helpful and everything went very smoothly - no problems at all. We booked this same condo again for next year - hope to make it an annual tradition.

Great Property to enjoy the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

Great property - spacious, clean, amazing views towards ocean and Mobile Bay. Beach club has great amenities which because we where there after school started were very quiet. Nice to be away from the busyness of Gulf Shores but close enough to get there quickly.

We loved our stay in Gulf Shores! It was the perfect getaway for our family. We enjoyed the Clubhouse/Gym as well as the excellent restaurant. Check in was a breeze. The staff was super helpful! We phoned the owner directly and Claire was a dream to work with and so sweet! We will definitely return!

Beautiful condo..wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our sixth year at the Beach Club but only our first year in this condo. The condo was beautiful. This is one of the largest 3 bedroom units we have been in and the extra space was wonderful. The condo is beautifully decorated and has everything you could possibly need for your stay. This is going to be our go to condo from now on. Everyone that came to visit was jealous of our unit! We look forward to staying here for many more winters. The owner is real sweetheart to deal with. She went above and beyond making our stay enjoyable. I want to say a special "Thank you" to Claire for sharing her beautiful beach condo with us.

My husband and I rented this condo for a 'get-away' week. We had a great time. The condo was clean, well maintained and beautifully decorated. Claire, the owner is so easy to work with. The view from the balcony is priceless. If you golf, be sure and get a tee time at Kiva Dunes. We had most of our meals in the condo............why not with the beautiful, well supplied kitchen. We had our 'going away' dinner at the restaurant on the property. The food was great, but our server needed MORE training. Should we be at the beach in Alabama again, we will go back to this condo.

Snowbird Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th year renting this condo during the winter months. It truely is a "Home away from Home". The owner keeps the unit in impecable condition and the new bedding this year was like sleeping on a cloud! Our family and friends love visiting us for the view and relaxing atmosphere. We have a large family and friends and it easily handles large dinners. The Beach Club staff responds to any issues that may occur and each year's visit gets better than the one before. We love the boardwalk and all the amenities within the facility. We will miss not wintering here in 2014 but hope to be back in 2015! Thanks for all the wonderful memories we had while staying in your beautiful home.
