About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet on quiet West Beach Boulevard has everything for a family vacation or a fun getaway for a couple, four friends. Enjoy viewing miles and miles of the Gulf of Mexico or picturesque Little Lagoon. Open the doors to enjoy the salt water breeze and sounds of the surf. A private Gulf-front beach with a gazebo and walk over is a short stroll from the front door.

Plan your days around viewing a setting sun over the Lagoon from one of two piers. There is also a private launch (small fee) for your boat or jet ski. The popular 'pass' connecting the Gulf of Mexico with Little Lagoon is a short boat ride, float, or walk away. Fishing and swimming are great at the pass. Young and old will enjoy the private sand beach on the lagoon, our pool, kiddie pool, or two lighted tennis courts. Outdoor grills and picnic tables are available as well, first come, first served.

Owner provides access to high speed internet; access to complex server also available at some sites.

Bed and new sofa bed are queen size. Unit is non smoking. Sorry, no pets. Total renovation of bathroom completed in January 2015.

Previous guests will notice that the complex has had a facelift in 2015, including new pool furniture, a new grill pad, new pool decking and renovated pool toilets.

We aim for 'five star' reviews!!!!!!!

had a great visit

  • 5 of 5

stayed a week in october. everything is as advertised. kitchen is ultra supplied. more spices than the law allows.

the bay is 100 yards away and the gulf is 200 yards away. just a short walk across the parking lot and a lonely two lane road.

fishing off two piers in the bay out back is good.

Great Condo!

Everything was perfect! Condo was stocked beyond belief with everything you could possibly need! Bed and couch were very comfortable and the whole place was spotless. Views from both balconies were fantastic! Owners are great to work with and really go above and beyond to make your visit enjoyable!

Great Alabama Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

This condo has it all! It's on the 6th floor and has two balconies, one overlooking the Gulf and one overlooking the Bay. The condo is so well stocked all we had to do was go out for groceries. While we were in Gulf Shores for 9/14- 9/19 the weather was excellent and the beach was great! For us, it was perfect for two. Can't say enough about the ease of renting this condo. We would love to stay here again next month if we had more vacation time!

Fantastic Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved staying in this comfy and cute little condo for a relaxing four nights in Gulf Shores. The location was fantastic, and our kids loved the pool, tennis courts, and the proximity to the beach. Next time, I'll be taking my fishing gear and maybe renting a kayak. We had a really great experience with the owner, and she treated us like guests more than "renters." The views from the front and back deck are just amazing. I would highly recommend staying here. You won't regret booking this cozy little condo!

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores. My husband and boys ages 15 and 10 reserved this condo for a week. The location was great! When we arrived our check in was very easy and the office staff was extremely nice. Even though the condo sits back a little from the beach we had a spectacular view from the balconies! We spent most of our time in the condo sitting on the balcony. We had no trouble crossing the two lane road to the beach, hardly any traffic. The boys loved the pool and it was big enough that it didn't seem crowded. The condo was great, only complaint was that the bedroom was not a traditional bedroom, no doors/privacy. Great for a couple but not so great for us with two boys getting up every morning at the crack of dawn every morning! Aside from that we had a great time! Great beach and the best places to eat!! Thank you Judi for a memorable trip!

Rested and Happy

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this room several times over the years, and the owners have been just GREAT! The condo has always been well kept, no repairs needed. We will be staying there again. We have stayed in other rooms, but the owners here are the best. The pool and hot tub are great. Just a short walk across the road to the beach.
