This wasn't just a condo, when we walked in we felt right at home. This place made our trip better. Ocean front view was perfect to wake up to every morning. Jay and Kim are awesome people and will work with you any way possible. I highly recommend this unit. We will be going back to gulf shores and when we do we will be in unit 466. Thanks again Jay and Kim, you guys have an amazing condo.

great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just rented this condo for a week in June. It was very nice and clean. The unit is at the end of the hall so there's not a lot of foot traffic going by. The view from the balcony is awesome. We watched the dolphins swim while we drank our coffee. The area in front of the condo is not too crowded and you are very close to the Sea and Suds restaurant and to the pier.

Enjoyed every minute

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 7 great days at this condo. The location was perfect. Close to all area attractions. Unit was very clean and well maintained. Jay and Kim were great to work with. They even sent over another parking tag on Sunday morning, when we had to bring both vehicles due to scheduling. Keycode to on the door makes coming and going as well as arrival a breeze, since there is no key to keep up with. We will definitely stay here again. Loved the swings on the ground level near the grills and pool. Children enjoyed the pool. I also liked having security on the premises every evening.

Friends Getting Away

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I had a wonderful stay at Jay and Kim's Condo. The condo was very clean and well stocked. We had a beautiful view of the gulf and reasonable close to all the great restaurants we love to visit. I would recommend this condo for anyone wanting to visit Gulf Shores.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were extremely happy with the condo, the location, and everything Gulf Shores had to offer. Jay and Kim's condo had amazing views, was quiet, and exceeded our expectations. The beach was only steps away!! The good thing was that the beach wasn't extremely crowded where the condo is located either, which was nice. Also, I was happy we chose to stay at a condo on the beach instead of renting one across the street because the traffic was heavy at times, which could make it difficult to cross. Plus, we could just go right upstairs to eat, etc if we wanted.

Jay gave us some recommendations for places to eat within walking distance or driving if you wanted to. This was helpful since it was our first time visiting Gulf Shores.

The condo is in the perfect location! It was close to resturants, bars, and shopping. The condo was decorated nicely, clean, and the kitchen had everything you could need! The community grills were nice. We grilled out and ate at the community tables downstairs. We didn't use the pool since we opted for the beach instead but the pool area was also very nice and clean.

Overall, I can't say enough about how pleased we were with the condo. It was my first time renting a condo and we would definitely come back to Jay and Kim's condos again. From the start, Jay was helpful with all my questions and extremely easy to work with.

Thank you again for the great stay!!

Spring Break 2016

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect condo on the Gulf for me and my children during spring break. It is clean, has all of the amenities of home, conveniently located to shopping and restaurants, and is beautifully decorated up to date. The balcony has a great view of the Gulf, and is the perfect place to start and end your day with your favorite beverage. The owners are very helpful and quick to respond with any questions I had.

Thank you Jay and Kim for a wonderful week.
