About Carla Castillion

We live in Mobile Alabama and have always loved Gulf Shores, AL. So much indeed that we purchased two units at our favorite property there. It will be our future retirement destination and we couldn't have picked a better place with the most amenities this complex has to offer.

We are a general contractor, small business owners and operators as well.

Carla Castillion purchased this condo in 2011

Why Carla Castillion chose Alabama

We chose to purchase and make this property our future retirement destination. We could not be happier with this decision and are anxiously looking forward to one day becoming permanent residents as so many others have.

What makes this condo unique

This property has the best of both worlds with the lagoon, fishing, boating, and amazing sunset views as well as the private, less crowded beach without tall towering condos to block the excellent views. So many amenities to name. This property has something all ages will enjoy.

Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay, very good location with easy beach access and easy fishing off the dock at the lagoon. The room is decorated nicely and we had plenty of towels and kitchenware. The room could have been a bit cleaner but it would not be a deal breaker for us when considering this room for future visits. I would have given five stars if it were a little cleaner.

Nice condominium

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a short vacation in Gulf Shores. The condo was very nice and up to date. The beach access is a short walk and having the dedicated entry is nice. I would recommend this condo.
