About Kathy Meyer

Our names are Dan and Kathy Meyer. We reside in Wichita, Kansas. Now that our family is grown up, it was time to look for somewhere we could kick back and relax. What better place than The Beach Front in Gulf Shores.

Kathy Meyer purchased this condo in 2012

Why Kathy Meyer chose Gulf Shores

We have been coming to Gulf Shores over 25 years. Our 6 children have spent many a spring break playing on the beach, enjoying the surrounding activities and for my girls it was shopping at the outlet mall.

What makes this condo unique

Early morning and Evening walks on the beach without having to drive or cross the street is what I love the most about our condo.

Beach was wonderful!

  • 3 of 5

The beach was fantastic and the house was clean and well supplied, it's very close to the beach but next time we will stay in a building with a pool as well because the ocean was pretty rough on my 6 yr old. I have it 3 stars because our car was broken into the 2nd day of our stay and I messaged the owner and asked if I should let management know and she never responded. It was as well if we were already there so no more communication was needed.

Beach Front was awesome

We had a wonderful time the condo was clean and very well stocked. The best part was how close to the beach it was. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit Gulf Shores. Owners were very easy to work with everything went smoothly.

Kathy is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

First, you will not be able to sleep on the pullout couch. It is not comfortable, so this condo only sleeps 4. Other than that the place was amazing. It was super close to the beach and very clean. The owner was incredibly nice and obliging. We had a wonderful time. Bring several big beach umbrellas and your camping chairs for the beach.

2nd Time to Stay Here

  • 5 of 5

Looking thru condos on VRBO can wear me out! This was our 2nd time to this condo and I knew I didn't need to look this time around. These are the reasons we came back here.

1- It's right on the beach! Walk out your door and down the stairs and bam, in the sand.

2- It's not a big complex. I'm not a big fan of the huge complexes you have to tromp thru and wait on an elevator etc. The beach was never crowded and made coming and going so easy.

2- It's super clean

3- It's stocked with everything you will need including extra blankets and towels, basic kitchen supplies, chairs and toys for the beach etc.

4- The price is right! This condo is a very reasonable price and there is nothing more affordable right on the beach in the summer.

5- The furniture is comfy!! We love the recliner, couch, and glider rocker. Room for everyone and its so comfy! My youngest slept on the couch.

6- Extra 1/2 bath. We are used to 2 baths at home and I believe most of the other condos in this building only have one. Having the other halfbath was great!

If you need something clean, comfy, and affordable I highly recommend this unit!

Thank you!
