About Sue Wood

We have vacationed in Gulf Shores since the mid 80's and fell in love with the area. We would go to other vacation spots and WONDER WHY??? We bought a Condo making our coming to the Beach even easier and then we decided in 2011 to move to our Favorite Vacation Spot. We love our piece of paradise and know you will as well.

Sue Wood purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sue Wood chose Gulf Shores

This Condo is in the Heart of Gulf Shores, with restaurants, shopping, activities of all kinds offering our guests just a short distance to everything. We love overlooking the gulf and the beach and pools that are offered just make this a desirable vacation spot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very clean and plenty of room for our family of 5! We had a great time with no problems.

  • 5 of 5

Sue Wood was very easy to book with and everything went as they said and as described. The location on the 6th floor was perfect, and pools were great! The unit, itself, was very bright and welcoming, as well as very clean, and I am picky! Plenty of cooking supplies in the kitchen, which was nice. Washer and dryer were nice. I only wish they had a couple of beach chairs in the unit to use, and a cooler to use. When traveling far with 5 of us in the vehicle it is hard to fit it all in the car. We have been to other condos that provided these and it was so nice to have these already there...Just a suggestion for the owners. Overall, our stay was very nice, and the beds were very comfy too! My husband thinks we need a new bed now because he said he slept better on that bed than he has in a long time! I was also very impressed with how clean the whole Lighthouse building was compared to other places we have stayed. It is a very well kept building...walkways were always clean of sand and debris and elevators were always clean. We saw people cleaning daily. It was nice to see, and just made you feel better about where you were staying. Thanks again! I'm sure we'll be back!

Owner's Response: Amy Thank you for the wonderful review of one of our units. We try hard to provide everything we can think one would need for a great vacation with no worries. I'll have to work on your suggestions, very worthy thoughts. You were great to work with and I hope we'll hear from you again soon. Sue

Clean, convenient, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the first week of August. There was a small mishap with the keypad not working when we were supposed to check in but Sue and Billy were there to meet us at time of check-in with 3 door keys. Not ideal, but really wasn’t that inconvenient.

The unit is clean and so comfortable. Plenty of seating, comfortable beds and cozy decor.

The location of the room is my ideal. Floor 6 is perfect, and it wasn’t right outside the elevators like some units are, so I was thankful for that!

Pools are large and very nice! It was a treat having the walk in pool with having a toddler. Very family friendly.

We would definitely stay here again as well as recommend this unit!

Owner's Response: Katy Thank you so much for the review!! We changed out the key pad the day you left out and it’s good to go now. So sorry Aarons couldn’t fit us in during your stay. Sometimes things just don’t work out the way I want them too 🙁 Glad you enjoyed your stay at the Lighthouse, we’d love having you and your sweet family again....we’ll need to meet the newest addition 😍

Beautiful, Fun & Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our Wisconsin family of seven (with five children ages 3, 5, 12, 12 and 13) had the most wonderful vacation and stay at Lighthouse Condo Unit 605. Sue and Billy are great owners who answered all our questions prior to our arrival, were prompt with check-in and have a beautifully decorated and clean condo unit. From kitchen cooking equipment and utensils to plenty of towels and extra bedding for the pull-out sofa sleeper, their unit accommodated our family perfectly. The view from the balcony is breathtaking. The patio seating is also great and our family had most morning breakfasts on the balcony listening to the waves. We were close enough to see our older children swimming in the amazing pools below, yet high enough to watch dolphins swimming on three different occasions. All the beds and furniture were comfortable, including the pull-out sofa sleeper! Another plus, for anyone traveling with a big family or larger group, we never ran out of hot water!

Our family also loves how close the Lighthouse is to several restaurants and shopping. We walked on the beach from the condo to Sea & Suds our first night for dinner. A couple days later, we walked down to the main intersection of Hwy 59 and Beach Drive to shop and eat at The Hangout.

We completely understand why some items like beach chairs, sand toys and coolers are not included (as they sometimes grow legs and walk away, as Sue mentions)...Therefore, it was not a problem for our family to bring along a small rolling cooler and sand toys to take to the beach. We simply stopped at the local Wal-Mart to purchase two inexpensive beach chairs and an umbrella for our stay. Now we have them for next time!

Thank you Sue & Billy for allowing us to rent from you. Everyone in our family had the most amazing time and can not wait to return to create and share more wonderful family memories.

Dale and I have stayed many times in this unit and we’re pleasantly surprised every time we arrive with the upgrades that have been made, always improvements !!! We’ve always enjoyed staying at the Lighthouse and with these owners.

Thanks for making our vacation time a great time.

Great Vacation Spot and Beautiful Condo & Property

  • 5 of 5

This is my family's first time vacationing in Gulf Shores, AL and we all had a delightful time. It was me and my wife, a 10 yr old son and a 2 yr old girl (my oldest son couldn't make it due to college school schedule). We usually go on "Fall Break" to Florida but I wanted to try something different this year and I'd heard a lot of good thing about the Gulf Shores area. I ended up booking this condo the first night that I started looking, about 4 months before our trip. The pictures of the place (and the previous reviews from other vacationers) won me over so I booked my very first trip through VRBO. We were all very satisfied with the condo and had a great stay. It was very comfortable and well decorated...and more spacious than we actually needed but I didn't know if my oldest son would be able to go or not when I booked. The condo is well located as far as food, shopping, souvenirs, bars, etc go. It's on the East end of Gulf Shores so it's a very short trip to Orange Beach which also has lots to do. It's a pretty large condo complex (for Gulf Shores) and has two nice outdoor pools - one mainly for smaller kids/families and one more for adults as well as two outdoor hot tubs and an indoor heated pool which is very nice on rainy/cooler days. The only drawbacks is there is no Store and no Restaurant on the property which may have been nice but plenty of choices nearby. We'll surely consider this property again when we are booking future vacations. The owners were great to deal with also.,

Great condo!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in unit 605 for a final summer trip and we were very happy with the unit. The owners were very easy to work with and the condo was well furnished with almost everything we needed. We look forward to our next trip.
