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 Gulf Shores

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.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! Everything was perfect! Clean and lots of space! Only thing I had to do was move all the small breakable items away from my two year olds reach so she wouldn't break or throw anything! But we loved it. My kids would go up and down the elevator to the pool which was the only place they wanted to be! The guy with the dog that picks up and cleans up around there was also very nice and helpful! I would recommend this place to everyone and we will definitely be back!!

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.

Owner's Response: Misty I am so sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. The utility drawer can be a pain sometimes but if you take your time it's usually ok. I know the doors are missing in the master bath, but all the major hotels you go to these days have new cabinets without doors! It's crazy I know but when we bought the condo the doors were gone. I guess I just got use to it. Please don't judge others by our condo. We have only had it a few years and we are still upgrading. Next time you come to the Gulf try the Sea and Suds or the Pancake House. The Pink Pony has great seafood and the Hang Out has pretty good food as well. Across the street you see the Island grill which is awesome and of course Hooters. Don't forget the Waffle House for great breakfast options. All of these restaurants are with in a two block radius. Sure hope you try Gulf Shores again. There are so many great places to stay! I believe the larger condos have several elevators but I am afraid of heights so I can't say for sure. Thanks for your input, we really do appreciate it. Susan

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.
