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 Alabama

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.

Quiet and Nice Family Atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We love the location and the place. It met our needs to have a nice quiet family vacation with our kids. It was located in a good location close to shops and stores and being right on the beach was even nicer. We plan on coming back and staying here next year.

This condo is steps from the gorgeous beach and has everything you could possibly need during your stay. All we brought was personal items and beach towels! The condo is also very clean! This is our second visit to this condo and we will keep coming back!

Perfect location. Great stay. Older complex

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time, the Beach Front is on the beach side, this unit was 2 doors down on the first level (there are only 2 levels) I could sit at the kitchen table and see the ocean out the front door. 2 small flights of stairs and your are ready to get on the walkway to the beach. This unit has everything including beach items (chairs, bucket, umbrella, etc.) which we did not use because we had our own. The queen bedroom is a little tight to move around in but overall great little place to stay. It is at least a mile from The Hangout but there is a Waves store within a block, also a seafood place, ice cream shop and restaurant in the same complex as the store. There are also wooden chairs & umbrellas in place that you can rent daily or weekly that a couple people run and take care of on a daily basis at least during the summer in front on the complex on the beach.

Perfect for our family's needs

  • 5 of 5

There is no better value on the beach.

We were looking for a 2BR condo directly on the beach without spending a fortune. While it might not be as new or luxurious as some others, it was clean, comfortable, in the perfect location, and priced right. Our family of 4 was in town for a baseball tournament at the Orange Beach Sportsplex and could get there in under 20 minutes. During our non-baseball times it was great for us to be able to come and go from the beach without getting in a car. I particularly loved the early mornings and late evenings on the beach. We would definitely stay here again.
