We had a great time
The condo was great everything to make your stay a great experience. they were painting the building but it did not keep us from using the facilities. Mark kept us up to date on the progress as they informed him. The only bad thing was the weather it was unusually hot for that time of year. We have stayed at Crystal Shores three times this is the best one that we have stayed in there.Thanks Mark
Our favorite place to stay thus far!
This condo is everything you need and more! We stayed for a week and seriously did not want to leave. It was very clean, had all the necessities and was conveniently located - plus right on the beach! We've been to Gulf Shores several times and by far this condo is our favorite!
We had to reach out to the owners a few days into our trip when we discovered the DVD remote wasn't in the condo (there was no way to play a DVD in the player, we could not figure out how to watch a DVD). This is the reason for the 4 star marking on the accuracy of the listing because the DVD player wasn't able to be used. The owners were very friendly, responsive and tried their best to assist. Did not ever figure out how to use the DVD player without its remote. That was the only trouble (if you'd even call it that) that we had during our whole trip.
I would highly recommend this condo to anyone who is visiting the area. It is very well maintained, beautifully decorated, and the owners are friendly and available if you need them during your stay.
Thank you Mark & Erica!!!
Perfect vacation to relax and enjoy the ocean.
We had the best vacation in Gulf Shores! This condo is beautiful, quiet and the location is perfect. We watched dolphins swimming not far from the shore and the sunsets and moon shining on the water was spectacular. Loved the wrap around balcony and the pool was very refreshing with it’s cool water !
This was a very nice condo to stay in. Location was great. The beds were amazing, so comfy. The only small issue we had was with the dryer, the dryer vent got crinkled up in the back and after we fixed that everything was great. Pool is a little small and it was very cold. But that didn't matter to the kids Lots and lots of dolphins. Will be back!!! The kids and grandkids loved it.
Our condo is 2 blocks from Bahama Bob's Restaurant on the beach. It is 1 mile from Alvin's Island Department Store, Desoto's Seafood Kitchen, the Hang Out, the Shrimp Basket and the Oyster House Restaurants.
