Congratulations! You've found your next vacation spot at Crystal Shores!

We live 45 minutes away and keep a close eye on the condition of our property. You're welcome to email me with any questions: info@CarltonFineProperties. Com This unit has two large bedrooms with a king in the master, queen in the second bedroom and a high end queen sofa sleeper which sleeps two.

Each bedroom is beautifully furnished, built in closets, chest of drawers and flat screen televisions. Basic high definition satellite is included along with free protected WiFi.

The residence also has two bathrooms. One is dedicated to the Master bedroom. The other is shared between the second bedroom and common area.

The common area of the residence has earth colored tile floors while whitewashed Pergo wood floors have been installed in the bedrooms. The custom paint colors, light flooring, and coastal décor add to this property's sense of delightful vacation.

Once you enter the residence you'll be struck by the immediate view through the sliding glass door and your own private balcony overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. From the 3rd floor you're high enough for a beautiful view of the beach and beach goers, but still insulated from loud noises below.

We have provided a small dining table and chairs on the balcony for you to enjoy your morning coffee, evening sunset or gourmet dinner. We've also placed a couple of lounge chairs for your reading pleasure or afternoon nap.

About Carlton Spinks

We live in Fairhope, AL (about 45 minutes away). We have one daughter and love our getaways to the beach. The ability to get away from home and work allows us to focus on the family and life's simple pleasures.

Carlton Spinks purchased this Condo in 2013

Why Carlton Spinks chose Gulf Shores

We love this property for it's modern construction and location. It was built in 2004 with all the current hurricane reinforcement construction requirements and has the richness of granite countertops, high ceilings, modern appliances, excellent amenities and courteous neighbors. Even though our winters don't get terribly cold, it's nice to have a heated pool, hot tub and sauna at our disposal. We also have billiards, foosball and a workout center onsite. Then there's the fact that it's only a few hundred yards from some of the best seafood and live entertainment around. The Hangout and Pink Pony have been here for years and for 'old school' visitors who may have been visiting since the 60's, they remember when the Pink Pony was the only thing around. Just a very short drive away is LuLu's Homeport Marina. Lucy Buffett is a friend of ours and sister to Jimmy Buffett. Several years ago she opened a 'restaurant' beyond compare. It it located on the intercoastal waterway so you can pull up by boat if you like, enjoy a wonderful meal, kids can play in the huge sand playground, or try your finesse on their new Ropes Course Mountain. They have live music EVERY night!

                                                            Mike and Debra, you are too kind! We were so happy to have you as guests and hope to see your return for years to come. My housekeeper was so impressed with the condition you left the property she could hardly tell anyone had been there. Thank you for taking such good care of our place. We wish you all the best.

                                                            Carlton and Shannon

                                                            Absolutley perfect!!!

                                                            Debra N.

                                                            First of all let me say that if you choose to rent this fantastic condo you will be so glad that you did. Carlton is extremely professional, accommodating and down right nice!!

                                                            This was our annual girl's trip to get away from it all! When 4 women travel any where together there is usually something that one or more do not like about the accommodations. Not this time! From the moment we walked in we felt at home. The kitchen was very well stocked, the living area was very comfortable, the bedrooms very spacious with wonderfully comfortable beds, and the bathrooms were large enough for two women to do hair and apply makeup at the same time!! Then we have the balcony which is where we spent a good bit of the time when we were not on the beach. Very large with a high-top table and 4 chairs, lounger and two additional chairs. Lots of room!! We felt as if we were right on the beach while sitting on the balcony!

                                                            I cannot say enough about this condo. But I can tell you that we loved it so much that we are already booked for next year.

                                                            Do yourself a favor and check it out and give Carlton a call. You will know right off that you made the right decision to book this property!

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Wow Debra! I don't know what to say. I know it takes time to compose a nice review and I really appreciate the thought and effort you put into it. I know part of the reason you booked with us is because of the positive reviews you read, so that's a really nice "pay it forward". Yep, we've already got you booked for next year and look forward to hosting you again.

                                                            Thanks Debra ...and friends!

                                                            What a great property!

                                                            David T.

                                                            I reserved this property as a gift to my wife for her 40th birthday. They had a wonderful kid free long weekend. Carlton was great to deal with and made their weekend carefree. You can really tell the pride he takes in this wonderful property. We have certainly found our new home away from home for many more visits in the future.

                                                            David, thank you so much. It was a pleasure to host Sarah and her friends. I'm glad they had such a good time and I hope she'll let you come down next time :)

                                                            See you guys next year.

                                                            Came down for a 3 night stay and had a great time. The owner was very nice and responsive to questions and information. Will definitely stay here again. Very clean and updated condo, and very convenient.

                                                            Enjoyed it alot


                                                            Gulf Shores, AL, USA

                                                            Oh my gosh, where should I start. To begin, Gulf Shores has beautiful beaches and amazing water (see the pictures). I could just sit and walk the beach all day, but there are so many activities nearby. The famed Hangout (food, bar, live music and home of the Hangout Festival) is walking distance. Shops, restaurants, waterparks, golf, motor rentals are also nearby. Crystal Shores is a great property with elegant features, modern construction, and excellent amenities (fitness center facing the gulf, heated indoor pool which connects to the outdoor pool, Hot tub, sauna, billiard and foosball table to name a few). I live in the area and am still discovering new places and new things to do. If you're high energy there's so much to do. If you can just sit on the beach with a cold drink and a book, this place is perfect!
