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.

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!

Great property, good location, clean room, nice beach location!

  • 5 of 5

The property was easy to find and in a great location to get around Gulf Shores. The room was very nice and clean with plenty of room for our family of 5. All the comforts of home and more. The beach was right out the door which made playing in the surf and sand very enjoyable. Just come in and have lunch or dinner and you can go back out and play! Covered parking with space to store and dry toys was also very convenient. The owner was very easy to communicate with and made renting easy. We enjoyed our week long stay and would definitely come back.

very comfortable condo and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

It was so nice to have an enclosed carport with an assigned parking spot. The condo was very nice and clean. We loved being steps away from the beach. Would stay here again.
