Kim Clatterbuck purchased this condo in 2012

Why Kim Clatterbuck chose Alabama

We chose Gulf Shores, Alabama because our family has vacationed here for over 10 years. It's the place we like to play AND relax!

What makes this condo unique

Surf Side Shores has 2 large pools, 2 kiddie pools, a BBQ area, and a green space for outdoor activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family stayed in this condo for 4 nights. They were the most incredible 4 nights we have had in a long time. Even though we vacation often, we've never had so many personal touches left for us. The Starbucks and biscotti was such a treat, but to also be left a gift certificate for a meal out on the town was over the top. We have never stayed in the same complex twice, let alone the same unit. But I'm here to tell you that the level of customer service and friendliness makes us feel like family and we will be staying in this unit again. Thank you for everything!

Condo not good, location and beach great.

  • 2 of 5

Filthy especially bathrooms, dryer screeched, dining lights didn't work, electrical outlets faulty, lights out everywhere, bath fans didn't work, poor bedding (no blankets), needs overall cleaning and a lot of maintenance. Great location, pool and beach.

Needs updating

  • 2 of 5

Unit needed updating especially the bathrooms - clothes dryer didn't work a repairman came but he didn't fix it. Unit had very few towels and washclothes and not any bath mats. Patio had a lot of sand on it we swept it up don't know why the cleaning crew didn't do it. On the plus side it was right on the beach and the balcony was great.

Owner's Response: Hi Margie, thank you for your review. I do have to disagree as our condo has granite counter tops, cherry cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and high end furniture. Also, we leave 6-8 bath towels, 6 wash cloths and 2 face towels. That is plenty for even our largest parties of 6. The fix for the dryer was a new knob and that was ordered the day the repairman came out. I have spoken with the cleaning company in reference to the sand. They certainly sweep it after each visit but in this case they did not do a sufficient job, I apologize.

Always a GREAT time!

  • 4 of 5

We love Starbucks and Biscotti! It's a perfect home away from home for our family. The view of the beach if perfect, its close to everything we need and it feels like home! Thank you, Kim for another year of memories made in Gulf Shores!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled throughout the Caribbean and Florida and this has been our best experience so far. The condo was neat and clean. There were 3 adults in our party and found it more than spacious. The beach was spectacular with good walks in either direction. Groceries and shopping are close by and the people are sooo friendly. Kim is great to respond to emails and we can not wait to go back next year! Thank you for the hospitality Kim!

Had a great time at a great beach location. Pool and lobby area were always clean and neat. Condo was furnished to our liking and had no issues with any appliances or fixtures. Would consider another stay here in the future.
