About Frances Latham

Growing up in GA we vacationed at Jekyll and St. Simons Island, GA; Daytona and Panama City Beach, FL and Myrtle Beach, SC. The first trip we made to beautiful Gulf Shores, AL, we bought a condo. We rented the condo to other vacationers until we retired and made it our permanent residence. We bought another condo in the Pleasure Isle Villas complex so we can continue to share this lovely place with others.

Frances Latham purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Frances Latham chose Alabama

Pleasure Isle Villas is the best complex on the Island for so many reasons. Primarily we have only 38 privately owned Units with lots of outdoor space to enjoy. We are located in the popular West Beach area.

What makes this townhome unique

It is more like being at home than in a motel or highrise because of the spaciousness. You have your own covered parking right at your doorstep. No elevators or parking fees. Best of all, we have deeded beach access so you don't have to worry with finding or driving to public access. You just follow the brick walkway to the boardwalk right across the street.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time and your condo was great. Thanks so much for letting us rent your property and we will defiantly consider staying there again.

Wonderful place for a Family Vacation. 3 Generations, and everyone had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful family vacation. We had 6 people and never felt crowded. The unit was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen came with everything. Crock pot, Mixer, Blender, plenty of dishes and glasses. The location to the beach is awesome. Just a short walk across the street to a private beach access. Easy to go back and forth if you need anything. This end of the beach is not as crowded as the Public Area, which made it very nice. The pool area is very nice with plenty of pool furniture for everyone to be comfortable. We enjoyed evening cocktails out on the main deck, and also enjoyed sunbathing & reading a good book on the upper deck. The unit even came with a washer& dryer which made keeping up with all the towels easy. There were DVD players, so, during a rain storm we were still entertained watching movies, as well as Dish TV. The owners were on site while we were there, and were very attentive to our needs. They loaned us flashlights so the kids could go crab hunting on the beach at night. The unit is close to grocery stores, as well as good restaurants & souvenir shops. We will definitely consider coming back .

First timers to Gulf Shores - Excellent Family Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this family friendly condo! 4 adults and 2 kids fit just fine. The kitchen opened to the living area was nice. The barstools at the counter made a great breakfast spot. Two decks face the sunrise and provide a delightful wake up with coffee or an awesome appetizer/cocktail spot in the shade. Ample linens and extra blankets. AC worked great! Ample hot water for that magical, post beach shower hour. The ease of beach access was a huge plus. The brick walkway made pulling the beach cart a breeze and provided direct access to the beach entrance. Outdoor shower and hose made cleaning up after the beach easy. Nice sitting area under the condo where we BBQ'd ribs one night. Pool area clean and nice and directly across from condos. Great walking on the main road with a nice sized bike/running lane. This end of Gulf Shores quieter as is not right near high rise condos and public beach access. We enjoyed building our sandcastle early in the week. We had a blast refining it each day in our little beach spot. Great sea shell treasure hunting, recycle bins on beach (this is a huge plus for us), and fun to see the "Turtle Patrol" check on sea turtles in the morning.

Clean, quiet, lots of room

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay, clean, quiet, lots of room. There is an on-suite bathroom in each bedroom, which is great, plus a full bath downstairs if you have someone sleeping on the sleeper sofa in the living room. We slept 6 and did not have to use the sleeper. Short 5-8 min walk to the beach across the street, easily accessible. Walking distance to a grocery store. Having the pool right outside was great for an extra activity to do or when we wanted to swim but did not want to carry our stuff all the way to the beach. Wifi was available but don't expect a fast connection. Owner was responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: So glad y'all enjoyed your stay. I'm not sure about the wifi situation. We have talked to several neighbors and they are all having the same issue. Will see if I can find out what was happening. Come back to see us for your next vacation. Frances

Lovely home and great location!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this home for a week at the end of June. It is a nice home in a great location. The pool was amazing and the beach was only a very short walk across the street. It was close to restaurants and shops, but not in a noisy area at all. The kitchen wasn't stocked the greatest as far as food storage and such and the wifi was a little weak, clearly very minor inconveniences. Overall, this was a great house and I would rent this property again.

The condo faces the pool and tennis court and is about a 2 minute walk to the beach and the lagoon. About five minutes away are some of the best beach restaurants, including THE HANGOUT, which hosts live bands and concerts throughout the summer and is only two miles from the condo.
