Swim, play in the surf, relax, suntan on the beach, and then fish, kayak, or go boating in the lagoon. You can do it all. Enjoy the comfort of this newly renovated condo. Dine on your balcony over looking the breathtaking turquoise Gulf waters. Spend time relaxing watching the dolphins, pelicans and herons . If you want a little more activity, try catching your fish for dinner off of the two fishing piers that reach out into the lagoon. Relax in the hot tub, sit on benches under the covered gazebo, or dangle your feet in the lagoon while enjoying the view surrounded by the tropical environment. Play tennis or shuffle board, day or night, on the lighted courts. Feel the warm, gentle, and pleasant Gulf breeze of the evening as you walk in the sugar white sand engulfed by the glowing radiance of a breath taking sunset along our private Gulf beach. The tropical landscaping throughout the complex, pool area, and courtyard is complete with waterfalls, hot tub, kiddie pool, gazebo, and even a conference room. Experience our little Paradise, the best kept secret along the Gulf of Mexico.

The property was clean and the staff was friendly. The pool was very nice and just a short walk to the beach. We had a great time.

Just OK

  • 3 of 5

The condo was efficient and clean. It is more like an efficiency that a one bedroom, but that worked for us. If you are having someone sleep on the sofa sleeper, if they are out past later than you, the entrance door comes right into the bedroom, so not much privacy and no door between the living area and bedroom. The main issue with the condo was the complete sterile feel to the place. The owner/operator makes sure that there is not one item left behind. They even empty out the ice maker. No "leftovers", no area guides, not even a spare coffee filter. Just a partial roll of toilet paper and a partial roll of paper towels. I've been to many VRBO rentals and although I know it's not required, there are always left over salt/pepper, coffee filters, ice, menus, area guides, toys, etc. We have always left some of our leftovers for the next guest. Probably wouldn't recommend the place.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear that you arrived to an immaculately clean condo, we strive to be the best in what we do. The owner has added french doors to add privacy to the master bedroom from the rest of the condo. The issue you had with there being no "leftovers" of any kind in the unit is due to health code laws. By law if you have a business licence to rent the property all opened food, cleaning, and paper products must be removed from the unit before the next guest arrives. The units you have stayed at that leave these items are either in other states or operating outside the confines of the laws. We apologize that this was of an inconvenience to you, but it is the only way we can provide the best possible cleaning for you. We strive to give you the best within the confines of laws and regulations and hope that you will return to stay with us in spite of this minor inconvenience for your health and safety.

Family enjoyed the easy access to and from the beach. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle yet close enough if we decided to enjoy the nightlife

Absolutely loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We have seen many units at Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet and this is one of my absolute favorites. It has been remodeled and was spotless clean. The sofa was very comfortable to lay on and watch the big screen t.v. in the livingroom. It was well appointed with all appliances including the small ones such as can opener and coffee pot. It is decorated very nicely with pictures from the owner who is an extremely talented photographer. I really liked the pictures. They went very well with the room decor. The bed was very comfortable and the linens smelled so fresh and clean. I enjoyed my morning coffee on the balcony with views of the gulf, and my evenings in the pool and hottub. There are grills onsite and we grilled something every day or night that we were there. I loved walking along the piers at night. Overall it was one of the best vacation stays we have ever had.

Let Down

  • 2 of 5

For starters, this is clearly not a "one bedroom".

Stating a condo is a one bedroom indicates there is a separate bedroom, this is not. This is comparable to a studio apartment or a hotel room with a kitchen. There is no door separating the bed area from the kitchen or living area, which is also VERY small. The bathroom is tiny and there are cracks in the shower. The vanity is attractive but very difficult for small children to reach due to it being raised so high. There were ants everywhere, I've taken pics and the frying pans were burnt and black on the cooking surfaces. Only half of the kitchen which is shown in the pics was remodeled. The fridge and the dishwasher were very old. Tried to stay positive but when a married couple take a small child on a vacation and it says one bedroom, you rely on it being a one bedroom. Oh, the bed felt like a cement slab. For the price, we found much better and way bigger in Destin. Also, the hot tub was broken our entire stay but appears as of this morning as we were leaving it's working now / the pool tiles are broken and the floor of the pool very dirty. So in a nutshell, nothing like the photos, very misleading

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. The condo is indeed a one bedroom without a door separating the bedroom, but many one bedroom units in this area are designed similarly. The owners have gone through great lengths to update this condo, and are still doing so. We have not received any other feedback on the frying pans, but will check into the issue. We are sorry that you found the bed uncomfortable, we actually hear great things about this bed (some guests have asked what type of mattress it was to purchase one themselves). The hot tub being out of service was out of our control and regulated by the buildings association, and they had it up and running as soon as possible. We hope you come back to visit us in Lower Alabama and we can help you to find a unit that better fits your needs.
