About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Our San Carlos unit is located on sugar-white sandy beaches and boasts stunning unobstructed views of the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. You will relax the moment you walk in and view the Gulf from the floor to ceiling glass doors. Walk out onto the spacious balcony that extends the entire length of the condo and enjoy sunrises, sunsets, dolphin watching and time with family and friends.

Our updated unit is located on the 16th floor. It is designed with quality furnishings to maximize your enjoyment during your stay. We made it feel like a place we can stay and enjoy which we frequently do!

The spacious master bedroom features crown molding, king size bed, duel side tables, lamps, dresser, wall mounted flat screen TV and DVD player. The floor to ceiling glass doors provide a spectacular view with the ability to close the full length blackout curtains when sleeping or leave them open and enjoy waking up to looking at the water.

About Tim & Cindy Walker

We are Gulf Shores locals so you can be assured we manage our property to make sure our condo provides you with the very best experience.

Tim & Cindy Walker purchased this condo in 2013

Why Tim & Cindy Walker chose Alabama

We fell in love with the location along with all the things to do that are so close. The view from the 16th floor is sensational! The condo is located only minutes from attractions for the kids and walking distance to many wonderful restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

The beaches boast white sand and are not as crowded as other places. The lower number of San Carlos units along with the excellent building condition makes this a perfect getaway!


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Family Vacation/Support of Private School for Children with special needs

  • 5 of 5

The condo couldn't have been better! It was decorated beautifully and it is so open and roomy! The Kitchen is soooo organized and offers everything needed for a CHEF!!! We did go into Pensacola and bought fresh seafood from Joe Patti's...was a recommendation from the owners...and, it was amazing. The view from the 16th floor, of course, offers a wonderful view. We loved having three full bathrooms, too. The condo was top-notch!!

Vacation with Extended Family

  • 5 of 5

We were in Gulf Shores in late July with our grown children and our 2 year old grandson. This is our second time to rent this condo for a family vacation. It is roomy in the living room and kitchen area and so nice to have 3 bathrooms! There was plenty of private space and plenty of entertainment space. The condo is beautiful and very well furnished and equipped. We had plenty of towels, bed linens, toilet tissue, paper towels, dish soap, etc. The beds were comfortable and the condo is very central and conveniently located to attractions. We will rent here again.

Awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 7 days in this condo and have had an awesome vacation. The accomadations are excellant. Very nice set up with everything we needed to make our stay very enjoyable. We had two couple's with us and all agree that this was the best place we could have stayed and been so comfortable.

Getting up and sitting on the balcony every morning and ever evening before bed was sssooo relaxing. Spent part of one day just sitting out there and soaking in the fresh air and listening to the waves.

We will be back I'm sure more than once. Thanks for sharing your home away from home with us.
