About David and Vicky

We are originally from Ocean Springs on the Mississippi coast. With Family living in Foley, we knew that we wanted to have a vacation home on the beach with the best amenities near our family.

David and Vicky purchased this condo in 2013

Why David and Vicky chose Alabama

Crystal Tower is one of the newer high rise condos in Gulf Shores. It has the best pools in Gulf Shores giving families the option of enjoying the beautiful white sand beach or enjoying a refreshing dip in one of three pools on property. It had everything that we were looking for in a vacation property. Three elevators on property is a HUGE plus during the height of vacation season.

What makes this condo unique

Location is close to central Gulf Shore restaurants, entertainment, and shopping. A number of GREAT golf courses are near by.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were delighted when we entered your beautiful condo. Nicest one we have rented. Great location!

Ahhhh relaxing!!

We loved, loved, loved, LOVED our stay in this condo. The only complaint we had was the teenagers hated sharing a bed and we wished we could have stayed longer. The condo was nice and comfy and we felt right at home. The walkway to the beach is great. Loved having 2 balconies! We will definitely rent again next summer!!

Great, comfortable stay!

Enjoyed the room and it's amenities. Convenient to town and beach. Pool was great for kids and big enough to satisfy the summer crowds. Liked that there was on-site security and clean public areas.

Fantastic condo and kids loved the pools / beach!

  • 5 of 5

A great condo with many extras! Better than we ever expected....very clean, well equipped kitchen, comfortable all around. Even had a Keurig for my morning coffee:-) The pools were the best & the air conditioned walk over made getting to the beachside pool with 3 kiddos so easy.

The condo was very clean which was appreciated. However, the living room furniture was VERY uncomfortable.

The dining room chairs to bulky and heavy. Master bedroom furniture too big and bulky, no room to walk around in. TV in living room too high. Us seniors are looking for comfort, not to see how much furniture can be crammed into the area or how many people fit in the condo. Need some empty space in kitchen cupboards to put our grocerties.

Nice, well- decorated, updated condo

  • 4 of 5

Condo has granite and updated appliances, including Kerig coffee pot. Carpet was worn around edges of rooms - you had to watch out for sharp tacks - to the point we put down towels. I mentioned this to rental co. This condo is across from the beach. Though there is a covered walkway for easy access, you don't have a great beach/ocean view. The view of the bay is much better from the back bedroom. Paper towels provided, but bring TP! Only 1 roll per bathroom was provided. Kitchen had all items we needed, except salt/pepper (which has typically been in other rental condos). This condo has a full washer/dryer, hair dryer, and iron/ironing board. All were appreciated! Flat screen TVs I. Den and bedrooms w/ DVD players - worked great! They have Bose docking stations for iPhones.....but, the connection is for the old ones (w/ the big plug in), so we were unable to use them. Beds were comfortable - king in the master takes up most of room - very little walking space. Pools and hot tubs nice. Location in Gulf Shores good - easy to find - close to everything we wanted to do. Overall, nice condo - good rental company - nice owners.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words as we greatly value input from guests. We did want to share that after a very busy rental season, we do have plans to replace the carpet and padding. As well, we will be sure to check the Bose docking station(s) as there should have been both an Apple Lightning adapter (in the drawer below) and an Auxiliary input cable (already plugged into back of station) for use with audio devices such as tablets or MP3 players. We will replace any missing adapters/input cables for the enjoyment of future guests. We hope you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores and hope you will consider our unit again for a future visit. Sincerely, David & Vicky
