I felt like I was at home in the condo!! It was very clean and had an awesome view. It was a very nice upscale get away and I would highly recommend!! Thank you so much!!!!
Perfectly appointed and situated condo for beach relaxation.
The condo was well maintained and furnished in a location that was perfect. The indoor and outdoor pool options were perfect for our kiddos. The space felt like home for the week. The structure was the right size with the right amenities. Our only issues were timing related (pool closed for 2 days for maintenance and construction on the road and building next-door).
We appreciated the condition and the care. We'll recommend and may stay again in coming years.
Thanks Mark and Erica!
We really appreciate the review - thank you. We like the pool as well - after you've had enough sun it is nice to let the kids enjoy some more swimming in the indoor pool. Sorry about the city & property maintenance activities - we weren't aware of them. Glad you found the condo spacious enough and we do try and keep the furnishings up to date. And we agree - our west corner unit, located right on the beach is hard to beat. Please do keep us in mind for your next trip to the gulf!

Excellent home away from home
We enjoyed our stay in your condo very much! It is well maintained and beautifully decorated. Everything you need at your fingertips. Great view and balcony.
We're so glad you enjoyed your time at the beach and that you found our condo to your liking. We do keep the maintenance up (just installed a brand new HVAC system) and our housekeeper does an outstanding job. And there is nothing like that great view of the beach and gulf from our corner unit and wrap around balcony. Thanks for the great review!

Home away from home!
This was our 3rd year in this unit for spring break. It’s our home away from home. It has everything you need and is kept very clean. It also has the greatest view. We loved the new flooring and carpet that was added this year. We are very impressed with how Mark and Erica keep everything updated. They are also great to work with. They are very quick to respond back to your needs and questions. We really couldn’t ask for anything more!
Always thrilled to have guests that choose to stay with us again - best testimony there is to letting us know we are providing a quality rental at a fair price. We're glad you liked the updated flooring and that you feel like this is your home away from home as well. We strive to answer questions and concerns promptly and make sure the condo is in tip top shape.

Well decorated and appointed.
I have stayed in numerous units in Crystal Shores over the years. 407 has been THE MOST visitor friendly, in every way.
We appreciate the review - always good to get feedback from our guests. We do try our best to respond as quickly as we can to guest questions. We provide each guest a Pre-Arrival Information packet that contains all the information they will need, including the property address, how to use the door code, Wi-Fi connection, places to go, etc. Nothing makes us happier than to hear our guests find the unit clean, comfortable, and well appointed for a stay at the beach. Mark & Erica
Staying at the beach in style.
The condo was perfect! Furnishings were perfect with a beach theme.
This is one of the best condos I have stayed in at Gulf Shores. If you want
a clean condo with all the upgrades, THIS IS IT!
Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review. We strive to make the unit comfortable and practical for the beach - but without clutter. And our housekeeper Rebecca always does a great job of making sure the unit is clean and ready for each new guest. Appreciate the feedback that our unit stands out from the crowd - good to know that keeping the unit in good repair and the furnishings up to date is being noticed! Erica & Mark
