About Kara Sams

We love the beach and want you to love it too! We're both southerners-one by birth, the other by marriage and we know what southern hospitality is. Please make yourself at home!

Kara Sams purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kara Sams chose Alabama

We love Seacrest because its not too big, has really fast elevators and the beach/ocean are so close! It also has a fun, laid-back atmosphere, which is why Gulf Shores is a favorite for families!

Very dirty inside the condo and the Seacreast had cockroaches in main lobby.

  • 1 of 5

We were very disappointed in this trip to Gulf shores. At first we didn't express our feelings of how we felt about the condo. We knew we drove 15 hrs, had 2 small kids, everywhere was booked! It was until we found the cockroaches on day 2 that we had had it! I texted Kara the owner, told her how we had to clean, buy new sheets, crumbs all over the floors. The cleaning people didnt wash the table or windows from previous peoples stay. We felt gross all week! Our son has been in and out of the hospital his entire life, we took him into this condo and immediately asthma flare up! I wish I had pictures of what my husband cleaned out of the vents. Dirt and dust were hanging out from months of not properly being taken care of. We had to end our vacation 2 days early to come home and our son was seen at Akron Childrens hospital for his asthma. Kara I know you offered to refund us to find a place to stay which is like I said merely impossible last minute. Appreciate the tht tho! Ben and I thought you knowing our son was sick and us cutting out trip, cleaning the condo-we basically left it cleaner then what we walked into it as, but even knock some off, but it is what it is. We are home and taking care of our son and we will never stay again. Im hoping others see this and question what other people are giving the good reviews of because we couldnt see what others found in his condo.

Owner's Response: So sorry Michelle that your beach trip was disappointing. I looked back on our conversations and noticed it was two and a half days before you contacted me the first time to let me know there was a problem. Once you texted me to tell me that the condo wasn't up to your standard, I called our housekeeper. She let me know that a new girl cleaned our unit for her as she had taken a couple days off. That girl is no longer employed. I would have gladly had someone come in and re-clean the unit. We did offer at that time to refund your total amount and even suggested a place that had availability. You all choose to stay the rest of the week. I was never made aware that you purchased new sheets. We buy new linens at the beginning of every season and change out ones at anytime that are stained or torn. We were in the condo in May and cleaned vents. We have the filter changed out at least monthly and sometimes more often than that this time of year. As far as the roach in the lobby, we've never seen one or had anyone ever mention insects in the building. Seacrest is one of the best managed and cared for buildings in Gulf Shores. One of the things that people love about the beach is palm trees-favorite home of roaches. The door going into the lobby is opening and closing constantly in the summer. I'm guessing one got confused and wandered in. I hope your son is doing better. You did explain to me that he was born with pneumonia and struggles a lot. I'm guessing if he's sick that often the humidity and ocean breezes that keep things stirred up there didn't agree with him. I hope potential rentors will look at the number of many positive reviews that have been posted over the years we've owned our unit at Seacrest. And the timely way we respond to problems that are in our control to make right. Blessings to you and your family.

Great location! 4th of July stay!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location!! We stayed here for 4th of July week. We watched the fireworks show that is put on at the Gulf State Park Pier on the beach directly behind the condo. We had a great view of them! We simply walked out 15 mins before the show and there was still plenty of room to get a good spot on the beach) then walked right back up to the condo when the fireworks were done. So convenient! We really enjoyed our stay!
