Perfect Place for Our Gulf Shores Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Beach Front Condo was amazing for my group's stay in Gulf Shores. As the end unit on the second floor, we had an incredible view of the beach and a cute, well kept home base for vacation weekend. We all had a fantastic time! I know the owners were apprehensive as our main purpose was to attend the Hangout Festival - so we are also very grateful they put their trust in us to respect the property. Thanks again!!

Contractor's pounding made for a very noisy stay!

  • 2 of 5

We had several things happen that we were very unhappy with. The very first night there was a terrible storm, our bed was shaking across the floor, the furniture in the living room was shaking, the wind sounded like a freight train, and the lights went out. There wasn't a single instruction on what to do in the event of a severe storm. We weren't from this area, had no idea if we should stay in the shaking condo or try to leave and if so where to go. The next thing that happened during our stay was contractors were taking off the old roof/shingles and putting on a metal roof. How nice to hear the grinding, pounding, walking across the roof, etc. during what was supposed to be a relaxing stay. We paid too much money to have all that noise. I emailed my concerns to both the owner and her assistant who chose to ignore my 2 emails. I thought they would contact me but since they didn't, I thought I'd share my thoughts in this review.

Girls weekend on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Beach was beautiful, the condo was clean and had everything we needed. The deck is amazing, it was so nice relaxing at night listening to the ocean. We saw dolphins two mornings from the deck. We had a small situation, but the owner took care of it. Thank you

I cannot say enough good things about this property. Convenient location, absolutely fantastic view, beautifully furnished & right on the beach.

You'd never know you were just off West Beach Blvd, the private beachfront & minimal units creating a quiet, tranquil environment. There are only two units in this small complex that offer a large deck with a beautiful view of the Gulf. This is one of them. Looking at the stars with our two-year-old on my lap is a memory I'll always treasure.

If you can book this property, do it. You won't regret it. Perfect place for a quiet beach getaway. We hope to make this an annual weekend trip. My wife & I loved every minute of our time here. I think our two little boys loved it even more.
