About Debbie

I am a recently retired Professor of Nursing. My husband is retired from Shell Chemical. We have owned beach front properties in Gulf Shores for over 33 years. Our two kids grew up spending every summer at the beach and we can now do the same with our 2 (so far) grand kids. This unit has offered our family countless years of pleasure and we are happy to share it so that you can make your own lasting memories.

Debbie purchased this condo in 1982

Why Debbie chose Alabama

We really love the quiet, family-friendly atmosphere of the Beach Front complex. It's so different than being in one of those high rise buildings with elevators that don't work half the time. There are only 36 units in the complex with lots of beautiful beach for everyone to enjoy a spot.

What makes this condo unique

We are on the lower floor so you only have 1 flight of stairs (some here have 2 flights and there is no elevator!). Parking is free, assigned only to you and under your condo. BUT, the most unique feature of Unit 602 is the HUGE, GATED, GULF-FRONT deck that offers shade, a swing, and a table and chairs for outside dining. There are only 4 condos that are directly gulf-front with decks in this complex. So you'll be the envy of all your vacationing neighbors when you are sitting on your deck swing enjoying the spectacular views. So don't hesitate to book early - our dates fill up quickly!

Had an excellent stay at the beachfront unit! Everything was as described and in working order and we had no issues during oir stay. I spent every morning on the porch watching Dolphins in the ocean. It was beautiful!

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here just a week ago. Love the condo. Will come back again soon. The owners are great to work with. Love how quite the area is and couldn't ask for a better view. Place is clean and had everything we needed.

This IS the beach vacation you dream of!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this unit. Communication with the owner, Debbie, was smooth, effortless, and a real treat. The rental itself is located right on the beach in an area that is peaceful. Perfect for a relaxing getaway! We particularly enjoyed the big porch overlooking the ocean and the accompanying swing! Hours of our trip were spent right in that spot enjoying the ocean breeze and balmy weather. For a homey, quiet, clean, and perfect place to relax right on Gulf Shore's beautiful beach, you can't find a nicer place to rent. Would suggest adding a baking sheet to the kitchen. Can't wait to return and rent from these fine people again!!

Great Value & No Problems

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this unit from March 29-April 5, 2014. Reservations were easy and owner was prompt in responding and enabling the reservation. They do not accept credit cards. The calendar was up-to-date so if you don't mind additional risk of paying by check, reservation was smooth no hassles.

This unit is right on the beach, and it's a quiet part of the beach. The farther west you go the quieter Gulf Shores becomes. Just a few hundreds yards west the condos fade to individual houses, so this unit is in a really great location on the beach.

This is one of best units in the complex. Other than this unit and three others, no other units have any balcony or beach view. This unit is one flight of steps up, and steps are right by the condo with parking virtually under condo for 2 cars.

It does have its own deck and it is semi-private, but not all that private. Everyone using steps for rest of condo complex walks right by your balcony. It's not totally private. No one will walk on to your balcony, but they walk past it and stare. Also there is no direct access to deck from unit - you have to walk out front door and then to your deck. I think at least one of other similar units replaced window with door(s) to deck.

The unit is 30 or so years old I guess. It has been well maintained. It is not plush. Everything works and it is clean. But carpet is old. Nothing wrong with anything, but you should know it's not brand new.

The kitchen was great all appliances worked.

Bath was fine everything worked, but we did notice hot water heater must not be large because one person taking 15 minute shower wil empty hot water heater. So if you had like 3-4 adults and a few kids all taking back-to-back showers all but the first 2 would only have cold water.

We only used the master bedroom bed. Mattress must be older, as it was very soft, and pillows were very thin. It is not luxury bedding here.

So in summary it is very clean. No problems at all. Not a luxury unit. Balcony not all that private. Beach is in a terrific area and views are unobstructed by anything. An excellent value and we recommend it.
