If the instant quote option doesn't work for you, please double-check that you’re requesting a Saturday-to-Saturday stay. We are unable to accommodate other requests at this time. Please note that if there is no daily rate posted, there is no daily rental offered. Based on feedback from one of our snowbird guests all dates are now open for all parties at all times so no one feels pressured to make a decision as that was never our intention. So if there are dates available and rates published it can be booked. No Service Fee currently being inserted into our quotes.

Charcoal grills are available for our guests to use downstairs, but charcoal and starter fluid are not provided. Rental chaises, as well as umbrellas, are also available from March into October and may be rented from a third-party vendor for around $140 a week. As of 1/1/2016 Gulf Shores has stated they will commence to enforce a clean beach policy so all tents/chairs, etc. must be removed by 8PM. Beach chair concessions that have a business license will have have 1-2 more years before they too will be required to clear the beach each night. This is being done so the city can groom the beach and in part to protect sea turtle nesting. For more information contact the City of Gulf Shores Ph: 251-968-2040. www.cleanisland.org.

Come stay at our place, and enjoy the view inside and out! We bet that you won’t be able to choose your favorite piece of art or your favorite view!

Why Tom chose Alabama

Crystal Shores is large enough to offer all the amenities we were seeking and allowed us the opportunity to be the original owners of a great corner unit with fabulous sunset views.... we love being able to come down here and just let the sound of the waves wash away the stress of everyday life!

What makes this condo unique

Situated within 1 mile of the 'T' in Gulf Shores Crystal Shores is within an easy walk to downtown for places to eat, listen to music and literally a 5 minute walk to Pier 33 for any last minute grocery needs w/o having to get in your car

Sunrise AND sunset views from this unit!!

  • 5 of 5

Love the location of condo, very close to town and Pier 33 is across the street! Felt like we were in a "beach" art gallery ... very cool art on the walls.

This is a corner unit so we had views of the gulf and the lagoon. Sunsets over the lagoon was impressive. Got great pics.

Master BR has sliding doors off to the patio so you can hear the ocean waves as you fall asleep. Kitchen was well stocked, just be sure to bring "Tupperware" for leftovers.

We also used the hide-a-bed to watch TV after dinner. Mattress is worn down, but bed is more comfortable that most hide-a-beds. We had a problem with the DISH TV, but it was due to our inexperience with this type of provider.

Amenities are wonderful ... lots of carts for loading and unloading. Someone from management company was always there cleaning and keeping curb appeal looking good. We are in property management where we live so this was important and impressive. Elevators were clean and fast ... never had to wait on one.

The security guard was so nice and helpful. Was comforting to know he was downstairs keeping an eye on everything.

This was our first experience using a VRBO, had always used the local rental agencies. Will definitely rent this unit again next year. Tom was great to work with and kept us informed along the way.

One of our best vacations ever ... we will definitely be back!!

More than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

We've been vacationing in Gulf shores for almost 10 years, and this is our favorite condo. The corner balcony makes all the difference in the world! The owners were very accommodating and prompt with returning our deposit. We will be reserving this again next year if it's available!

Loved Gulf Shores

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our time in Gulf Shores. We met the nicest people while staying at Crystal Shores. Everyone was so friendly. The Sand and Beach is beautiful, nice and white and easy to walk on near the water. The Crystal Shores Condo Complex was conveniently located within walking distance to several restaurants and a convenience store which was wonderful. We loved the delicious Po' Boys at Bahama Bob's on the Beach. And Janino's NY Pizza was very yummy too, went there twice. My husband and sons also enjoyed golfing at the State Park nearby. We drove 15 minutes to Flora-Bama for lunch one day and enjoyed that experience. We went shopping at several Surf Shops, ate at The Oyster House, Lulu's, Shrimp Basket, and had an excellent meal at Gulf Island Grill. The amenities at Crystal Shores was very nice, my husband and I really enjoyed the hot tub. Everything was well taken care of and there was a security guard on site 24 hours a day. The Beach chair service was great and the people who worked it were very nice and competent, always asking if we were doing ok, or needed our umbrella moved. We really just spent most of our time on the beach, enjoying the sun, water, and people watching. The Condo had a beautiful view from the 8th floor corner balcony! We spent may hours enjoying the view and looking for Dolphins through our binoculars. The Condo was clean and well maintained, the kitchen was nice and updated, the washer and dryer worked great. It had everything we needed for the week and we were very happy with it. Working with Tom was great, he immediately responded to all my emails, and provided great customer service. We would recommend Gulf Shores to our friends and family. Our whole experience was fun and enjoyable. We can't wait to come back!!!

Owner's Response: Kathy, Glad you enjoyed Crystal Shores and in particular our place. Tammy does a great job of keeping it clean, Michael helps us keep it maintained and security helps makes you feel safe and secure while there! I should note that security is not 24x7 but they are their quite a bit of the time which clearly you observed. Hope your experience will bring you back to visit us again one day and thanks for choosing CS807! Tom & Jane

Fabulous condo!

  • 5 of 5

What a great condo! My sisters and I stayed in Crystal Shores 807 for a week in May/2016. Each year, we try very hard to find the best gulf front condo that is affordable. This one exceeded our expectations. The Gulf Front view from the balcony is unbeatable and the location is just west of Hwy 59, close to great shopping and restaurants. Everything was clean and well maintained. When we arrived, we noticed that one of the support boards for one of the twin beds was broken. We called Michael and he was able to take care of it right away.

This condo was even better supplied than most of the others we have stayed in. There were a few dish washing packets, some paper towels, a couple of bars of soap and a small amount of laundry detergent.

The king bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. The twin beds in the second bedroom were not as comfortable, but they were satisfactory. We loved all the local artwork decorations.

I would definitely recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Janet, Glad our unit exceeded your expectations and you had a great time at our place. We love the art as those are all friends of ours. Sorry about the box spring being cracked and glad Michael was able to get that replaced the next day. It's good to have someone local as a go to guy when needed! Thanks again for choosing our place and hope to see you back again soon! Tom & Jane

Great corner unit with large wrap around balcony

  • 3 of 5

We really liked the large wrap around balcony on this corner unit. The views were amazing from both outside and inside the condo. You can see the ocean and bay from the living area. The decor was beachy and cool. The unit was very clean and the local manager checked in to make sure everything was okay. The only negative was the furniture and beds. There was no comfortable seating in the living area and the mattresses in both bedrooms were in bad shape.

Owner's Response: Eric, Sorry to hear about this now and we are shocked as the King mattress was new in January 2015. Reading the reviews of July 29 2105 "very comfortable master bed" or May 30 2015 "comfortable furnishings" as those guests seemed to enjoy what you did not but we understand like Goldilocks not every mattress works for everyone. Sorry ours did not happen to work for you. . Hopefully better luck with your future vacation plans! Tom
