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.

Condo was great for our needs, Great views of the ocean from the front den balcony as well great pool and bay views on the back side. Nice pool and hot tub area with bay views and we loved the docks/picnic/cookout area on the bay which was a very relaxing area to hang and watch the sunsets most evenings. Like the other reviewers noted, this condo does enter directly into the bedroom and there is no door between the bedroom into the kitchen/den area. This was fine for us, and would be fine for couple with small children, or girls weekend for 4 with bedroom and den sofa bed but I think it would be tougher/more awkward for 2 adult couples. Again we were a couple, and our 21 year old daughter and a friend came for a few days and it worked out fine for the 4 of us, but just wanted to be sure someone contemplating a 2 couples trip in the same condo knew the set up. Bathroom is on the smaller side, but even with 4 of us (& 3 being girls) we never had any problems. Condo was clean and updated with adequate kitchenware, towels, linens and pillows for all beds. The bed in the bedroom was very comfortable, only complaint to bedroom was that because you enter into the bedroom, the window faces the outer hall/vestibule and the lights outside are on all night so even with curtains and blinds, it was a lot lighter in the room than I am used to at night, but we got used to it and it was not a huge deal. The beach access is directly across the street and is Paved and/or wooden Boardwalk all the way to the steps down to the beach and was very quick to go back and forth if needed. Property is a little further down West Beach which we thought was good in peak season to get out of the busy drag, but you will have to drive to restaurants/bars etc. We did take cabs a few times and they are fast and easy to get if you wanted to have adult beverages while out and not worry with driving. The management company Poole & Associates who we did our renting through were very professional. Their staff as well as the the front desk staff of Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet were great. There was a $20.00 fee for the week for parking pass you have to purchase at the property, but we had plenty of parking places and carts and buggies are provided to get luggage and groceries up to the units which was nice. We will definitely be back and would absolutely recommend this property.

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
