Overall a great deal and location
Room was right across the street from the beach. Great location and very close to everything! The room was nice with an amazing view. However, the rollout couch was broken. We rigged it ourselves and contacted the property management. They came while we were gone but never contacted us or let us know what the plan was. I reached back out and they said they were looking for a replacement couch but until then they dropped off a blow up mattress (which was very tiny). We made due. Then the dryer stopped working. When maintenance called they asked me to try again. It started back up but it continued to quit. We went home with wet clothes. But all in all it was a good place and we had an amazing trip!!
Price not worth it after fees.
The fees for this condo dramatically increased our rates. This is a 4th floor condo - which isn't mentioned. We were not provided with any soap (dish, hand laundry) or trash bags. Other condo rentals we have stayed at provided these things - plenty of them. For the cost we could have stayed at a hotel and have had these things +breakfast provided. The couch and bedspreads were stained / dirty, decor was broken, pillows were torn and the room smelled like smoke when the neighbors would smoke. They advertise fresh paint - but we could see holes in the wall and ceiling repair patches. The pantry / cabinets were full of various kitchen items - which left little room for groceries. Thankfully we planned on eating out or we wouldn't have had room. People were loud at the pool well past the pool closing time. I tried calling the management company for assistance- they said they'd contact housekeeping about the soaps - we never heard back. They offered a repairman - but I am not sure how he would fix a majority of the issues - especially the cleanliness issues. The location was good - we were close to many attractions. The beach was nice, not super busy - we did have to cross a 4 lane highway to get there, but it wasn't terrible.
We thought this looked like a nice family friendly condo - but it was not comfortable and did not appear to be well kept. It was a little tight for our family of 4 ( 2 adults - 3 yr old and 6 yr old). I did like the bunk beds in the hall so we were close to the kids.
We enjoyed Gulf Shores, the beach and the local attractions - next time we will stay in a hotel or a different condo. The reviews for this one were very misleading.
When booking a rental property the fees are a necessary evil, they cover things like tax, and cleaning which we unfortunately have to pay. This unit is on the fourth floor, most condo's indicate the floor with the first number of the unit, like this one for example "411" would be the fourth floor 11th room. If you have a preference or are unsure please be sure to ask us before booking. Cleaners are supposed to leave a starter kit of soaps and things. If you did not have these we would have happily had the cleaners bring some out for you. The owners are looking at purchasing a new couch in the fall along with the other updates they will be making this fall. The kitchen does offer plenty of cookware and dishes, most people want this as they like to cook while on vacation. The pool can get a little loud, however that's common with a family friendly complex. We did try to send out a repairman and housekeepers to address many of the issues that you mentioned, regrettably you declined and we were unable to fix the issues.
overall very clean and roomy
Thank you for the review Lucy! Hope you come back to see us again soon.
It was a nice, quite, well maintained place.
This was a very last minute booking. I prefer to be right on the beach. That being said this place has great beach views even though it is across the road. In front of this building is state park land so it will always have beach views.
The room and grounds were extremely clean.
Lisa, I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your time here! We love that this property has awesome beach views for "across the street prices". Thank you for taking the time to leave a review!
We decided to take this trip at the last minute and as always ...those trips are always the best! I've never been to Gulf Shores, but my husband has and we both loved our stay at this condo. Can't wait to visit again soon! The weather was perfect! The condo was very comfortable. The view was nice ... & we miss our morning breakfasts so much overlooking the beach! Hope to return in the fall!
the entire team would like to thank you for your review, it means a lot to us. We are so glad that we were able to make your first trip to Gulf Shores a memorable one! Fall is a great time to visit as well! The beaches are less crowded and the weather is beautiful. We hope to see you back soon.
It was very nice and had a great view of the gulf
It was very accessible to any amenity that you might want
We are very thankful you took the time to leave us a review, Joan. It is wonderful to hear your room was accommodating to you, we try our bet to provide our guests with plenty of amenities. We hope to see you back for some more fun in the sun!
