About Blake James / LeeAnn Proctor / Steve Buelter

3 Friends from Atlanta (and their dog Wilson : ) who really enjoy the Gulf Coast

Blake James / LeeAnn Proctor / Steve Buelter purchased this condo in 2013

Why Blake James / LeeAnn Proctor / Steve Buelter chose Alabama

A GREAT property unlike most others in Gulf Shores located in heart of the Gulf Shores Beach District. Within easy walking distance of the main beach area, but once inside Wilson's Retreat, you will feel like you are all alone on the Island : )

What makes this condo unique

Tallest high rise in Gulf Shores but still only 3 units per floor

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed at how stocked the place was. We have never been to a VRBO that has been this homey and inviting....with lots of extras. It was nice to not have to pack the car with beach chairs, umbrellas and towels for a mini vacay.

The location was great....and we loved the fact that there was a restaurant in (super short) walking distance.

Would highly recommend this property.

All you need is the view but you get so much more!

  • 5 of 5

Wilson's Retreat was a treat! From the friendly, easy interaction with the owner to the condo stocked with anything you might need for your stay, everything was great! I had to work a few mornings of our stay but work doesn't even feel like work when you are sitting on the balcony with a great cup of coffee from the provided Keurig (!), with an awesome view of the beach. The condo was spacious enough to invite another family we vacationed with back after dinner to play games. Nothing but good things to say about the condo, clean, well appointed, all extras (beach chairs, umbrellas, hair dryers!) provided meant we didn't have to bring it with us. Blake was very accommodating, answering any questions we had and making sure our stay was great. He went above and beyond! I would recommend Wilson's Retreat without any hesitation.

Excellent Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wilson's Retreat is an excellent condo for a family. We had 4 adults and 2 children and there was enough room for everybody. The condo was very clean, including kitchen items!! The balcony is very spacious, they have plenty of chairs on the balcony for everybody. We sat on the balcony every day and loved the awesome view of the Gulf. The kitchen is fully stocked, and the owner is generous to have extra kitchen items...salt, pepper, sugar, coffee filters, etc...The owner also has beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys for the kids, extra beach towels, and even a canopy. It's a bonus to have those items supplied. Blake was quick to respond to any questions, we arrived a little early and were allowed to check in before 4:00. This was our first time to Gulf Shores and if we return we will definitely stay at Wilson's Retreat.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the July 4th holiday week and it was amazing! While the beach was a little crowded, it was not bad near our condo. And Wilson's Retreat was perfect. The owner checked in with me numerous times throughout our trip. There were several basic staples in the kitchen, good pots and pans, the furniture was comfortable, it was like a second home!

Don't worry about bringing a bunch of beach supplies because they supply them. I loved my stay at Wilson's Retreat!
