About Lorie Breaux

Hello! I have always loved the beach from sunrise to sunset. Dreaming one day I could actually be this close to a beach. We are excited that we can just sit back on the balcony and enjoy the peacefulness this home away from home has to offer.

Why Lorie Breaux chose Alabama

Great location

What makes this condo unique

Small complex, very relaxing, and I love to just unwind. I always leave feeling refreshed.

It was amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect! Very clean, comfortable beds. Walking distance to a lot of places, including the beach. The comforts of home away from home. The pool was fabulous, my granddaughters enjoyed it the most I believe. My family enjoyed every minute of our time there. We will be back again if Lorie and Kenneth will have us. I am telling everyone about this place. Thank you again for making our 1st family trip memorable.

SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!

  • 5 of 5

After hearing much about how great Gulf Shores is from many people, we decided to spend our two-month Winter Adventure 2017 here - away from the harsh Upper Midwest winter of Wisconsin. Lorie, the owner, was so personable and approachable, making us feel welcome from the moment we booked. She provided lots of info on things to do in the area and was easy to reach through text and email. John, one the two permanent residents in this low-density condo, was friendly, recommending restaurants from the many nearby choices.

This condo is really comfortable in a perfect location for golf, shopping, and dining. We had beach access right across the highway, an easy, quick walk. The condo was very clean, well-kept, and well-appointed, including a washer and dryer and the comfortable master bedroom bed. Because we like to fix many meals during our stay, we appreciated the fully-stocked kitchen which even had a crock pot. This is our first condo to have a screen door, and we relished keeping the door open. We also loved using the table and chairs on the front balcony for our evening drinks. We had a convenient parking space underneath the building, too. All in all, this condo provides plenty of room to relax and enjoy this area.

Gulf Shores proved to be such a peaceful area during January and February, and Lorie and Kenneth’s Ocean Echo #101 is the ideal home-away-from-home! Thank you for sharing your home with us, making our Winter Adventure truly memorable!

Close to Everything, Quiet Complex

  • 5 of 5

This is a low density condo with only nine units which is great. You don't have to struggle to find parking, hope that the pool isn't crowded, listen to people constantly walking by your door.

The condo really is within walking distance to most everything that you could need. The beach is just across the street, and the public beach is an easy walk as well. Lots of restaurants close by to choose from, as is shopping. The Dollar General is not far and is quite large-they have a substantial grocery selection including dairy and frozen items-perfect if you forgot something at the store.

The decor in the condo is perfect-beachy without being over the top. It's a nice touch to have throw blankets in the living room.

Everything you need is in the kitchen. Great array of pots/pans/dishes. It's nice to see that some seasonings and such are left behind for the next person, rather than being discarded.

The cleaning crew does a wonderful job. The condo was spotless. The towels were formed into swans and placed on the bed-a nice touch.

Plenty of towels, some toiletries, and paper goods provided.

Lorie was great to work with. She was incredibly responsive and provided extensive information. We have used VRBO in the past and some owners are hard to reach or take days to ever respond. Definitely not the case with Lorie.

We would definitely stay here again. There were two adults and two teenage girls. We had plenty of space for everyone. It's great to be close to everything and have the benefit of being in a quiet complex.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

Landlord Lorie is amazing--prompt with answers and so easy to work with. Convenient location and inside of condo looks brand new. Family of four and we were very comfortable. We even had dinner on the front balcony one night. Pool is great and easy access to the beach, shopping, dining, and mini-golf.
