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 Alabama

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.

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.

Best Value for your Dollar

  • 5 of 5

We are return visitors. You won't find any better value for your dollar. Joan has thought of everything, even sand toys for the kids. We enjoyed the gulf view, walking to Sea-N-Suds as well as the pier, and let's not forget hunting sand crabs every evening and kite flying! This condo is conveniently located to everything. I think my favorite thing is it's not a high-rise. Looking forward to our next stay.
