About Susan

Dan is a recently retired agriculture teacher and Susan is a homemaker and aspiring writer who spends much of her free time involved in church work.

Susan purchased this condo in 2013

Why Susan chose Alabama

We chose this condo because it has a great floor plan with a wrap around balcony and a wonderful beach view. We particularly liked the covered patio next to the pool and within sight of the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Most of us go to the beach for a relaxing getaway. We felt at home the minute we stepped inside. The bedrooms are on opposite walls, 8'ft patio doors open to the ocean as you not only see the waves by you hear the tide as the waves crash on the beach. The washer and dryer in the condo means no sharing or waiting(a big plus). Restaurants are close as well as supermarkets. The mall here is massive and the outlet mall and the pottery store are close by as well. There are many parks and rides for kids of all ages. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing.

So so

  • 3 of 5

This condo had plenty of space and a great view of the beach, but it certainly lacked a few things. This place was nowhere near walking distance to restaurants, which is why I was willing to pay the price, lights were burnt out, and cabinet doors were off in the master bath. Every time you try to open the utensil drawer it almost fell out and there is only one elevator for the entire place. On the plus side there was a washer and dryer, which was a good thing because there were only enough bath towels to get through a couple days. We did enjoy our stay though and even saw dolphins one morning from the balcony. I wouldn't complain at all, but I feel like I overpaid for this condo.

This is the second time we have stayed here and the condo is perfect. The location would be very hard to beat with most things within walking distance. Looks like we will probably be making a trip here at least once a year.

We had the best experience, from planning and booking through packing up and leaving this wonderful place! The best part was the keyless entry! We've stayed somewhere different every year that we've come because the number in our girls get-away fluctuates and we have had to stand in our heads many times to unlock a combination lock to get keys out each time so this was awesome!

The condo was very well stocked and had everything we needed! There's only 7 floors so the congestion on the beach was so much better than in front of the many story condos.

Susan was a complete doll to work with. I look forward to staying here again soon!

My family has stayed in this condo for the past two years in a row and are planning on stating there again this year. We love everything about the condo and location. The owners are very nice and wonderful to work with and make adjustments as people mention are needed. We plan on this being a yearly event. Thanks Susan for all you do and offering your condo as a great place to spend our yearly anniversary with the kids! We will be back this year!
