Memorable Vacation in a Picture Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was amazing and had everything I expected in a rental condo. My husband, our 2 children, along with my mother all enjoyed the condo and loved that we were steps away from the beach. I preferred this condo over others because it is a two story complex as oppose to a High-rise. The deck is another reason I chose this location and the pictures online can’t capture how breathtaking the view is at all times. The location is in close proximity to top restaurants and a number of fun activities for adults and kids. There is even a grocery store across the street from the condo. My family will definitely plan to stay in this condo again.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property for our family of two adults and four teens. We knew it wasn't going to be huge, but we had plenty of room for a three night stay. The easy beach access and view are what we wanted and this property delivered, literally the 16 steps as advertised! We were on a budget and the well equipped kitchen allowed us to easily cook all of our meals. The beds were comfy, the kids had wi-fi, and we really didn't notice having other people around as the condo building is much smaller than the huge high rises. The only thing that would have met our needs more is if beach chairs and umbrellas were provided with the unit, but not a big deal. We had a great time. Thanks for sharing your property!

Wonderful view & location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this condo. The deck is amazing and we enjoyed the fantastic view. It was great having such quick access to the beach. We sat on the beach to watch fireworks on July 4th and it was just perfect. The pictures and description of the condo in the listing are accurate and we felt the price was very fair. We will definitely consider returning on our next trip to Gulf Shores!

It got exhausting climbing stairs to get to unit lugging ice chests but we knew this gong in. I think u can keep (and we should have done this) beach stuff ans ice chests down below by the car or in the car even. 605 is facing the beach nice deck. We secured with lots of rope a pop up tent to give shade during the day. Because it was so well secured it survived a storm!. Steps away from the water. Central AC can get supper cold if needed and takes all humidity out. Will book again!
