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.

Worst stay ever!
Beware of using VRBO!!
As far as I can tell, VRBO did nothing to help receive a partial refund for the following problems.
I arrived at condo on Dec 1 and found:
1. The toilet in master bathroom to have a broken seat, which made it unusable.
2. The couch sat in front of the wall mounted tv and had broken springs on each end which made one hip sit 3-4 inches lower toward the middle of couch. This made it unusable for my wife and I.
3. The recliner also sat in front of the tv and had something broken on the right side as you sat in it, which also made your right hip sit several inches lower, and recliner would immediately unfold and hit the wall. This made this piece of furniture unusable for my wife and I.
Owner wouldn't answer phone for several days. Finally replaced the broken furniture but wouldn't refund for any inconvenience. Offered extra time but only at a time we couldn't use it.
Really loved the property and the location and convenience of the locality.
Enjoyed it and the owner was very helpful in getting us started in the process and along the way. The locality was fantastic and the proximity to shopping and dining was great. Would definitely like to stay again, and hope to in the future. One of the permanent residents made us feel at home and was very hospitable to our family. Kudos to the gentleman and his wife in 1B! Overall it was a great stay and would love to be able to stay again in the future. Was also a very clean, well maintained property.
We did not want to leave ! The weather was not the best when we arrived but got better the next day so we got out and enjoyed every minute of it! Great location! Felt like home! Thanks so much for making a place affordable and nice for us and others to come enjoy! We will definitely be back!
The condo was as advertised. We really enjoyed our stay.
Dated condo but great views
This condo needs a lot of TLC. Folding chairs at the dining room table was a different concept. There wasn't a chair or sofa in the living room that was comfortable to sit in - definitely needs some new furniture. Bed was surprisingly comfortable. Will probably stay in the building again in the next year. Gulf Shores is a lot quieter that Orange Beach and this was our first stay in Gulf Shores.
Property was clean
Condo was great! Very homey! Loved that it was right on the beach. Would definitely stay here again.
