About Joan Wilkinson

This is Coo Coo with 2 of her 'precious' KID friends. I got my nickname from one of my KID friends when she was born. Her mother asked me what I wanted her to call me and I said QQ. That is my pet name that my husband calls me. Anyway, to make a long story short when she was able to talk it came out Coo Coo and so that is how I became Coo Coo to all of MY KID friends. We are a middle age Christian couple who love the beach, river, boating, spending time with friends and football. My husband Pete is an Auburn alumni and I am a ROLL TIDE ROLL fan. We are a divided household I guess you could say. But, I go to all of the games with him and pull for Auburn except for that last game. Then the gloves come off:^) We both love people of all ages... .I love kids. I enjoy doing lots of FUN things with my KID friends. They make be HAPPY:^)

Joan Wilkinson purchased this condo in 2013

Why Joan Wilkinson chose Gulf Shores

We chose this unit for the 'low density' type of building and because of the location. Perfect location to all attractions and restaurants especially the 'Hangout' for the younger ages. We both have enjoyed Gulf Shores since we were children.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the close proximity of the unit to the beach and Sea N' Suds Restaurant.

Absolutely Awesome

  • 5 of 5

There is a reason we rent from Joan and Pete year after year. Their two condos are absolutely amazing, very well kept and both Joan and Pete are so easy to work with. We've stayed in several places in Gulf Shores and their condos are the best by far. Very close to all restaurants, gift shops and right on the beach. If you're looking for a condo that is exactly as advertised and the owners represent the BEST in customer service, then you don't need to look any further. This is the condo for you!

The Place to Go For Rest and Relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

We always enjoy our trips to Gulf Shores. We logged many hours of beach time and visiting our favorite restaurants and it was always good to "go home" to #167 to enjoy the well equipped, comfortable and conveniently located condo were we could kick back and relax. There are lots of points of interest close by for shopping and sight seeing and we have done a lot of that in years past. Now we just like to relax now and #167 is just right for that. Many thanks Joan and Pete!

Great quick stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with our two small children (2 and 4y/o). Great to have a corner unit that is on the 2nd story. The unit itself was nice and well equipped and the beach was great. Joan (owner) stopped by to see how we were doing, which was nice! Would definitely go back!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay couldn't have been better. This is an older complex but the condo itself is nicely updated. The kitchen is well stocked with all your cooking needs. It's very clean, the beds are very comfortable and the owner (Joan) couldn't have been nicer. Joan couldn't have been more helpful. She was great with communicating leading up to the trip. She was also staying in her other condo while we were there as well, and was very kind letting us use her beach umbrella. The location is great, just a few miles from everything that we did. The pool is small and opposite the beach but we were there for the beach and actually only went to the pool once. The beach is great ,very clean and with it being a small complex we had tons of room to relax and play. Our 2 year old had a blast. I highly recommend Coo Coo Nest to anyone. We'll be back again.

Thank you so much for choosing us for your family vacation. God Bless!! Pete & Joan (Coo Coo)
