We were impressed with our unit. It was clean and the kitchen had all we needed to prepare our meals. The beds were comfortable and the jetted tubs in both bathrooms was a plus. The view was good except for the construction that caused our balcony to be closed to us. The indoor pool was nice. We would like to come back when construction is completed and there is no noise except the sound of the waves.
Balcony was off limits
We were surprised to find that we could not access the balcony. The construction has the view blocked with repair scaffolding. I called the office the next morning to see what they could do and they politely explained that there was a paragraph when I booked it explaining they would be under construction. I guess I paid too much attention to the pictures and not enough to all the paragraphs. They said that they would contact the owners about my concern, but I never heard back. The toilet in the master bath ran continually and we had to turn off the water valve and use the one down the hall. We let them know so that it could be repaired for the next guests. I will say that his is a beautiful condominium and when the repairs are complete it should be a really nice place to stay.
We are glad that you had an good vacation overall. You are correct in that the disclosures about the construction and loss of certain amenities has been posted in the description since the beginning of March when the construction began. We have since sent maintenance to fix the issue with the toilet, which we would have gladly fixed during your stay had you let us know prior to checkout. We hope to see you back next year after the construction is over.
No balcony while under construction...don't be fooled like I was!
Please take the picture off the website showing the balcony view. I got tricked into booking this place thinking the balcony would be open or that I would at least be able to see out the balcony. But ...no. It was quite sad. I would recommend a much larger reduction in rental while the place is under construction. I didn't care about the outdoor pool being closed at all. The inside is just as the pictures show.
We are sorry to hear that you are disappointed with your choice to stay with us while under construction. It is not nor never was our intention to deceive anyone, and that is why the description has clearly stated since March 9th of 2017 that the balcony and outdoor pool would be inaccessible during the time frame which you booked. The reduction of 25% off already lowered prices is more than fair as you still have use of all the indoor amenities, a great unit, and access to the Gulf of Mexico. This is one of the most sought after complexes in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area and gets nothing but great reviews so it is almost surprising to see such a poor review for reasons that were clearly stated prior to booking. The construction period is only a few months, and as such did not change pictures because anyone who books for before or after the construction period has a right to see what they will be getting - just as you had a clear indication that they were not available. While we will understand if you do not, we still hope to see you back to enjoy another vacation with us, and you are more than welcome to call us ahead of time rather than booking online to ensure that the unit you get will meet your needs.
Spacious and great View
I would have given this an excellent rating except the carpeting in the bedrooms was so stained and dirty that we had to cover it during our stay. The rental company said this was "end of the season" and deep cleaning would be done soon. I will go back, but will insist the carpet be cleaned before we arrive. The condo was VERY spacious, sometime pictures are distorted, but this was a pleasant surprise. The view was awesome. The elevators were quick. Everything we needed was in the condo. Close to great restaurants. When booking. there are "fees" that amount to nearly 30% of the rental cost so be aware before booking. They were doing some "facework" in the pool area while we were there, so that will add a nice touch.
We are glad to hear that you had an enjoyable stay overall. It is true that there are fees and most of those the state lodging tax and the cost of the cleaning. We try to price the units accordingly so that the final total still ends up being a very affordable vacation. I would encourage you to check our rates against others for the same complex, you should find that we are among the lowest rates in order to compensate for the fees which all rental companies will have to charge. We strive to be one of the best priced companies on the Alabama Gulf Coast.
Checkin was easy, even though it was off-site. Unit was in great shape but we figured out several days in the that the oven may not work correctly. No beach towels provided like we've had in other unit rentals at the same place but we always bring our own. Overall a wonderful week and the location is just what we wanted!
Our place was exactly as described, very clean, big and comfortable. Great trip, weather was wonderful, beach and pool area were great. The only thing I would say about the Shores is the gas grills were not the best, even though they were Viking, one did not work and they were dirty. Our unit could use better utinsils and an upgraded coffee pot. Overal I was very happy and would stay there again.
