We had a fantastic week!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Our family truly benefited from the best of both worlds.....the beach for sand & surf and the lagoon for a little fishing.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was an absolutely perfect fit for me. I came down by myself to get away from the everyday stresses of life and I had no problem doing so in this place. It was across the street from the beach but very accessible and I also had a pretty good view of the beach from the balcony. I also enjoyed going to the pier on the lagoon and watching the kids play with their nets trying to catch fish or crabs. This part of the beach is a lot quieter and not nearly as "commercialized" as other parts of Gulf Shores.

The doorknob was the only thing that needed attention. It was a little difficult to get it to lock but I had two other locks on the doors so I felt very secure! Altogether a super great trip! I felt so refreshed when I came back to the real world on Monday! I will definitely book there again!

Great little property!

  • 4 of 5

Easy access to beach across the street as traffic is light on the west end. Amazing sunsets from the pier down on the bay. Owner was great and really quick to respond. Kids missed Wi-Fi at night but they survived. We will be back.

quick getaway

  • 3 of 5

My husband and i decided to take our boys ages 4 and 1 on a small getaway. The location was perfect, away from all the crowds but close enough to all the best places. Owners were great at communication from booking to letting me know my deposit was already sent back to me. My negative comments will be on how dirty the condo was. The beds had sand inside of the sheet. The ceiling fans had about an inch of dust on them which prevented us from turning them on. The floor were so dirty that i had to sweep because the amount of dirt on the floor. The Tub was dirty because upon filling it for my boys during bath time i noticed sand at the bottom of the tub, i removed the plastic grip and it was full of slim and sand. Upon entering the condo smelled like if some had smoked in it but i diffuse some essential oils to help with the smell. This condo has so much potential if it would get updated and cleaned well.
