About Cathy E

We named our condo 'The Baby Turtle' - we love working with animals and currently volunteer with 'Share the Beach' (Sea Turtle Program) in Gulf Shores.

Our other property is 'The Lazy Turtle'.

Cathy E purchased this condo in 2013

Why Cathy E chose Alabama

Gulf Shores has long been our favorite vacation spot. We fell in love with the Sea Oats complex and had heard from many friends that it was their preferred place to stay.

What makes this condo unique

We chose to allow most pets, with prior approval, as we too are animal lovers and always travel with our two dachshunds. Finding a place to accept them can be difficult. We hope you appreciate the added benefit and take care when you do bring your four legged family member to ensure they do not damage the place so that we can continue to offer this benefit.

Mixed emotions

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the condo came with mixed emotions. When we arrived at Sea Oats, the complex was great with the pool, beach & lagoon nearby. Everything was clean at the complex. The storage area was good, but needed cleaning out. The condo itself was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. However, the entire condo desperately needs renovating. The furniture, decor, walls, floors, kitchen and bathrooms need improvement. The owner is making plans for upgrades, but needs to make it a priority to get them done. I would definitely stay at Sea Oats again, but will chose a different condo unless this one has been upgraded.

The condo was exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and the condo had everything we needed. We really enjoyed how close it was to the beach and that the pool was also right there. It was great to be able to travel with our dog. We made a day trip over to Dauphin island so he could play on the beach. We took the ferry over and enjoyed that experience.

Just add food-

  • 5 of 5

Spoiled by my first con do experience, Cathy had a stocked kitchen complete with all the appliances I could ever need. We loved watching our tweens from the balcony while soaking up the shade. The beds were comfortable and the ceiling fans were such a relief after getting sunburn. The air conditioning works great and the storage closet downstairs was priceless for our wet and sandy necessities. I would recommend bringing a few jugs of drinking water bc beach (tap)water everywhere has a funny taste- so coffee and ice are also affected. I would stay here again in a hot minute. Especially because we can bring our sweet furbaby!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great experience. Do note NOT all condos (or owners) are created equal either :) . I try to provide all the comforts of home (and then some) that I reasonably can. Hope to see you again! Cathy

Very clean and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a very clean complex and the condominium was the same. The condo was very comfortable with the balcony facing the pool. It was a very short walk to the "un-crowded" beach or you could walk to the bay side and sit in the shade on the pier with the breeze blowing across the water. The condominium is convenient to the tourist attractions but far enough away from the 'craziness' that I participated in 35yrs ago. We were looking for a quiet and relaxing trip to recharge our batteries, that was pet friendly, and we accomplished that goal. The complex is well lit at night. We will definitely return in the future.

Owner's Response: James, I am very sorry your were unhappy with the accommodations. You made NO attempt to contact me or discuss this with me and I am surprised to see this review. I think it is clear from all the other positive reviews that no one else shares your opinion. My condo does not smell and is not dirty. It is scheduled for paint/new flooring (removing carpet) this fall AS STATED in the listing, but your review is not only unfair, but completely inaccurate. I have four rentals and NEVER received a negative review and try to go above and beyond to make my guests feel like they are in their second home.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this condo several times in the past few years! We have family gatherings on West Beach during the holidays and summer, and although family is great--it is nice to have a special "away place" for me, my miniature schnauzer, and my favorite companions---my granddaughters!!

This condo is everything I could ask for---clean, roomy, and the porch overlooks the pool!!!!! It is across the road from where the rest of the family stays so we (me, my girls, and my Buddy) can stroll back and forth whenever we want. My granddaughters love this condo so much they call it "our condo".....It is so comfortable to snuggle down for movie/pizza sleepovers after a day at the beach or a full day in the pool! The girls have sleeping bags all over the living room floor, but when one or two really want sleep they can go to the bedroom and curl up in the super comfortable beds.

The master suite is amazing!!! So, after all the fun is over for the day, Mimi can relax in her own space with King bed and private bath.

The owner is so amazing to work with--she even keeps us posted on turtle hatching times in August! I will be coming back to "our condo" as long as my girls are loving it-----I hope they will carry their special memories of our times together there for many years to come!

Owner's Response: So glad you and your grandkids love the place. I know it will serve lasting memories! Maybe this year they can see a turtle nest hatch. We have a few nearby already! Thanks
