About the property

2 Br, 2 Bath, Stunning View Of Little Lagoon And Pool - Unit 403B

This stunning non-smoking condo is available for parties of up to 4 people, children included. If you have more than four people or if any one smokes, do not rent this condo. We are just a bit nuts about non smoking (including the balcony) and having no more than four guests. We evict violators. Assuming those are not a problem, you will LOVE this condo.

New couch - New easy chair - New beds - New bedroom furniture - New entertainment center - New 50 inch flat screen TVs - New granite counter tops - New dishwasher. Main bathroom remodeled February of 2016 - include European style walk-in shower! New floor installed February 2016. Master bathroom remodeled December of 2016 - includes European style walk in shower as well. No tub, only showers.

We do not rent the condo during the Hangout Music Festival. We do not rent the condo to students on spring break. We do not rent to intermediaries or permit subleasing. We have a three night minimum stay per our association guidelines.

This is a non-smoking unit. It is a beautiful newly renovated two bedroom condo on the fourth floor of the Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club (GSSRC) complex. Uniquely located to provide access to both the Gulf Shores West Beach and Little Lagoon, this complex truly is the best of both worlds. On the front side of the complex is the beach that Coastal Living ranked the number one beach in the United States. On the back is a beautiful huge lagoon for boating and fishing.

Every piece of furniture in the condo is nearly new, the oldest purchased in October and November, 2013. New loveseat and easy chair as of January 2016. We do not have a sleeper sofa.

The white sugar sand beaches of the the Alabama Gulf Coast truly are the best in the world and they are only a few steps away from the Surf and Racquet Club. Walk out the front door of the complex, cross the street, and you are on the beach! Dedicated 24 hour access to the beach through a GSSRC owned gazebo on the front side of the complex. Enjoy the beach anytime you want!

In back of the Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club complex is the beautiful and relaxing Little Lagoon. In protected water, it is a great place to boat, fish, ski, sail, kayak, and swim.

The Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club is loaded with amenities. There is an exquisitely maintained adult pool as well as a hot tub and a children's pool. There are two docks for fishing and docking your boat, a boat launch, dedicated parking for boat trailers, shuffleboard, picnic tables, and several charcoal grills. There are two lighted tennis courts with lights that you control.

Please check out the photos of the view from the spacious 4th floor balcony. This, more than anything, is what sold us on this condo.

In addition to the view, we chose this unit specifically for its location within the complex. It is on the west side of the complex with a balcony that faces east. It is shaded in the afternoon so the patio is the perfect place to hang out in the afternoon. Most weather blows in from the west so the patio is a great (dry) place to sit in the rain!

Both the living room and the master bedroom have sliding glass doors leading to the balcony.

This condo has all new furniture. Nice furniture. It features all granite counter tops, two 50 inch flat screen smart TVs, and dedicated Internet access.

The master bedroom features a queen size bed. The second bedroom has two twin beds.

No more worrying about where to put the keys when you go to the beach or the pool! This unit has keyless entry. Just punch in your code for entry.

Cell phone charging: we have you covered. We have a charger that can charge any modern cell phone.

Have a boat? Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club is where you want to stay. It has dedicated parking for your trailer. There is both boat launch for your convenience as well as numerous boat docks so your boat will always be ready for action during your stay.

Internet access: this unit has its own in room WiFi connection. Additionally, the complex has free WiFi service in the pool area and both docks. By the way, our complex has WiFi at the beach too!

50 inch Flat Screen Smart Televisions: This unit has 50 inch Flat Screen HD Televisions in both the living room and the master bedroom. The television in the living room is equipped with Tivo! We have specifically configured the television in the living room so you can easily connect your Xbox, Playstation, Wii, etc to HDMI, RGB, or A/V connections on the television. In the living room there is also a Blu-ray/DVD player for watching movies.

Coastal Living ranked West Beach in Gulf Shores the best beach in the United States saying, 'Alabama's best beach stretches six miles from Gulf Shores Parkway to the end of Dolphin Drive. The farther west you go the less congested it gets—until there's nothing but sun, sea, and your own footprints. But what sets Gulf Shores apart from other Gulf Coast destinations is the quality of the sand: soft underfoot and ultra-bright white. Summer water temperatures hover at bathtub levels, and gentle waves make the beach safe for even the youngest waders.'

A link to the Coastal Living article is below under 'Links to more information.'

Please be sure and check out the website we have posted that describes the condo in even more detail. There is a link to it below under 'Links to more information.'

The Beach Express is open and can save you significant time and aggravation on your way to Gulf Shores. There is a link to a site describing the best route below under 'Links to More Information.'

The security deposit is typically refunded the same day as check out. The security deposit is not refunded if the unit is excessively dirty, if more than four guests stayed in the unit, or if someone smoked in the unit.

We are locals. We live in Foley - 20 minutes away. If there is a problem with the condo, we can and will address it immediately.

It seemed kind of silly to have a 50 inch high resolution television connected via HDMI to a high resolution Blu-Ray player and then provide guests with a bunch of old tired medium resolution DVDs. Accordingly, we have selected a series of the highest resolution Blu-ray disks in existence to provide the ultimate viewing experience. Here are some of the high definition movies we have in Blu-Ray format: Avatar, Toy Story Three, The Hunger Games, Titanic, Shrek Two, E T Extra Terrestrial , The Dark Knight, Iron Man Three, Casablanca, Gladiator, Wreck It Ralph, Casino Royale, Pirates Of The Carribean At Worlds End, Baraka, Hugo, The Wizard Of Oz, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, Ratatouille, King Kong, Beauty And The Beast, Tropic Thunder, Lord Of The Ring: The Return Of The King, Wall-E, The Lion King, Despicable Me, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part I, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part 2 , Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen , Jurrasic Park, The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn Part One, The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn Part Two, Lawrence Of Arabia, Finding Nemo, Pirates Of The Caribbean - Dead Mans Chest, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, Independence Day, Zero Dark Thirty, Monsters University, Monsters, Inc., Planes, Planet Earth, Spider Man One, Spider Man Two, Spider Man Three

Check in time is 4PM. Check out time is 10AM. Additional questions? You can reach us at 251-955-2469.

About Mike and Deborah Willis

Mike and Debbie - We are retired local residents who live in Foley, Alabama, just north of Gulf Shores. One Auburn fan and one Alabama fan so give us some space in late November!

Mike and Deborah Willis purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mike and Deborah Willis chose Alabama

We live in South Alabama. We have been to literally every place on the Alabama Gulf Coast Beach. We chose Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club because of its unique location which offers both beach and lagoon access. We are volunteers with 'Share the Beach,' a group of people who monitor Alabama beaches from May 1st until September 1st looking for sea turtle tracks. West Beach Blvd. from Calloway Pass to the gated Laguna Key is our section of beach that we monitor.

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful view of the pool and Little Lagoon, a boat ramp, fishing dock, and yet only a minute walk to the most beautiful beach on the planet.

A Great & Relaxing Vacation for Our Family!!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Gulf Shores. This was our 1st time visiting & we will be coming back sometime in the future. The condo was perfect for 2 adults & 2 - 18 year olds. Our accomodations were great. It felt very relaxing & comfortable. The Gulf Beach is very close, the pool was perfect & the owners were great to work with. We were very impressed. We'll be renting this condo again in the future.

Perfect Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, the condo was exactly as described and met all of our expectations. It was immaculately cleaned and ready for our arrival and equipped perfectly in all areas. The balcony was large with wonderful views of the bay and pool area. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the baths fully updated and well stocked. I would highly recommend this condo for your stay at the Surf and Racquet Club and we will most definitely return as well!!

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beautiful, comfortable and well appointed. It had a great view, and my wife and I spent most of our time on the balcony when not at the beach or pool. We are looking forward to returning in a year or so and are hoping to spend our next vacation here in 403B. The location is great, a little out of town so we didn't have to deal with all of the traffic, but still a short drive to restaraunts, shops, etc. and just across the road from the beach. The view of the pool and the "little" lagoon is great and peaceful.

We recommend this well maintained and comfortable unit.

Great Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our 2017 Winter in 403B. Love the walk in showers and wood laminate floors, it gave a warm feeling to our stay. Owner is a local resident and has great concern and care for this unit. The unit is conveniently located off the elevator for quick access of unloading and daily activities. Kitchen is fully furnished and lacks for nothing. PS: This unit is meant for persons who care about another ones property.

If you are coming hear to party and destroy, you might as well look elsewhere. It is a nonsmoking unit also, so no worries of stale, nasty, foul air.
