About Laura Mohar

My husband, Ed, and I are both accountants who live in Houston, TX. We have a son and a daughter, 5 grandsons and 2 granddaughters. We both love and enjoy the Gulf Shores, Orange Beach area and how friendly everyone in Alabama seems to be. Ed made my dream come true to own a property right on the beach in 2008 and we were able to buy another larger property in 2012.

Laura Mohar purchased this condo in 2012

Why Laura Mohar chose Gulf Shores

The Colonnades is a gorgeous upscale property built in 2006 with 4 bedrooms and 4 full baths with 2104 square feet and a 26 foot wide huge balcony. We wanted a place that allowed plenty of room for family for fun beach vacations. When we saw the amazing views of the Gulf, the beach and the sunsets from the floor to ceiling windows on the South and West walls, we were sold. Waking up in the master bedroom, the view makes you feel like you're right on the water.

What makes this condo unique

The Colonnades has a retractable, clear cover for its pool and Jacuzzi for the Winter, that still allows you to enjoy the gorgeous Gulf views, but protects you from the weather. There are only 3 units per floor and only 53 in the building so there is always plenty of room on the beach.

Awesome stay at beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved the collonades!! The condo was beautiful and so spacious!! The views were amazing!! We loved the large balcony and loved spending time out there. (The smaller back balcony was such an awesome added bonus!) The couch was large and we could all lay together and enjoy a relaxing evening. The beds were comfy and there were bathroom for all 4 bedrooms, which was wonderful! The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed sitting around the spacious bar and visiting with each other while enjoying the floor to ceiling views of the Gulf of Mexico. The large "indoor pool" and hot tub were a big hit after a full day the beach. Thank you for sharing your beach chairs and toys. That was very convenient! We would love to stay here again some day! We couldn't think of anything that we needed, but it was nice knowing the owners were available if we did. Thanks so much for letting us stay at your beautiful place!!

Loved the property and amenities. The beach was less crowded than other places we've stayed.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation. The property was amazing and large enough for all of us. The extras (pack n play, toys and high chair) were a bonus. The grounds are kept clean, security is always present (very nice man) and the beach is clean and less crowded. Really like the location and less condo's than other locations we have stayed. Always had parking and covered if needed. Laura was wonderful to work with. Will definitely stay here again. Thank you Laura for everything.

Pinson Alabama

Family Vacation at Gulf Shores

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything it was listed to be. The balcony on the 11th floor left us with a great view of the ocean and beach. The pool was great. The condo had everything we needed to make our stay a pleasure. The condo was well maintained. If you are looking for a place to stay where the beaches are great and you can sleep quiet every night you have found it. The owners were great and helped me thru the rental process.

This condo is amazing! It's on the 11th floor and has a GIANT balcony with a great view of the gulf. The condo has 3 nice regular rooms and a fantastic master bedroom with a large bathroom complete with 2-person shower and a jacuzzi. The condo is well-maintained, has nice furniture, and comes with a lot of the daily necessities (plates, dishes, towels, utensils, etc.) Would definitely stay here again. Loved it!
