Why Tim and Dianne Timpone chose Gulf Shores
We chose this property because it is located in the most desired complex in Gulf Shores AL, Crystal Tower. 2 outdoor pools with large hot tubs and 1 indoor pool along with a game room and outdoor BBQ area. Close to everything ie: restaurants, bars, Wal-Mart, Beach, Shopping Malls, Movie Theaters, Boating and some of the best entertainment and sea food in the world.
What makes this Condo unique
One floor down from our condo is an air conditioned walkway over the street to the beach where there is a 1.5 Million dollar large swimming pool with LazyRiver and extra large Hot Tub.

Very Nice and Clean Unit with Poor View
This unit was very clean and very well furnished. The overall property (including pools, hot tubs, and fitness area) was also very clean and well maintained. The only thing negative (which doesn't show up on the pictures) is that the balcony is right next to the pedestrian bridge which crosses the road and the AC unit for the bridge is beneath the balcony. Between the road noise and AC unit it was not very practical to use the balcony. This is probably why it's advertised as "The Best For Less". We may go back to Crystal Town but will look for a unit higher in the building. We had another problem (which was not the fault of the owner) when a contractor on a higher floor caused a water leak and resulted in us having to leave 4 days early. 5 commercial grade air blowers and a dehumidifier were brought into the unit to dry things out. Again, this was not the fault of the unit owner, but we ended up leaving 4 days early.
Love the beach, nothing can change that.
The condo was clean, great location and decorated very nice. It was nice to have the tunnel to not cross the busy street, pool was beautiful with a hot tub. Amenities were very nice. I was dissappointed about the view. the tunnel blocks your view of the ocean, and that was not in any of the pictures when I was choosing a condo. Also not one scrap of spices in the place. Most condos I have stayed in the past had a closet with water toys and full spice racks so you can cook while there. be prepared to buy salt, pepper, TP, paper towels, dish soap.
Good for the price
The condo was very nice inside it was clean and roomy. The two beds were comfortable. Kitchen had everything you needed. Washer and dryer helps, washing beach towels and swim suits every evening makes things more pleasant. The pools where amazing and the walkway made it very easy to access. The only complaint is the sofa bed mattress was terrible and not suitable for even children to sleep on we had to use a air mattress for the grandchildren. The view from the balcony is blocked by the bridge to the pool and the website says there is a arcade room for the kids and there is no arcade. But all in all I enjoyed this condo and would rent it again.
Nice Vacation Rental
We really enjoyed our stay at Crystal Towers, facilities were very nice, enjoyed being able to cross the road thru the overhead walkway and not having to worry about traffic.
Our Condo #304 was awesome! Very nice people to deal with, no hassle and no worries!
Would highly recommend to anyone!
The condo was great and we enjoyed the stay. Everything was easy.
Love Crystal Towers
We loved our room. It was clean, roomy, and comfortable. We love to stay at Crystal Towers. Their pool is the best and wonderful access to the beach. We will be back!
