About James Calvert

I have travelled a great deal all around the world and currently reside in London. I prefer the convenience of fully equipped condos rather than Hotels for my vacations. The beach rivals the best in the world.

James Calvert purchased this condo in 2013

Why James Calvert chose Alabama

I lived in Australia for many years and always lived close to or on the beach and appreciate how wonderful it is to be near water. Gulf Shores is a special place, its unspoilt, with clean white sandy beaches and wonderful warm water and a very moderate climate. It is also safe and people are friendly, it really is great place to unwind. Life moves at a more relaxed pace and I always recharge my batteries every time I stay here. The condo is modern fully equipped with all you need, comfortable, airconditioned, well stocked kitchen great gym and good security.

We would also mention that on the beach right in front of Seawind there are sun lounges, tables and umbrellas for hire thoughout the year.

What makes this condo unique

This property is very private is in a great location with good supermarkets and Farmers markets close by. It is also a fun place with many places to visit and things to do for all ages. There is nothing quite like going to sleep listening to the sound of the waves or being able to go for a swim in the sea without driving anywhere.

Most of all I love the view, sitting on the balcony on a comfy sofa watching the sun rise or set and enjoying a drink or a meal is priceless.

we had a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

The decor is beachy and updated. The beds are super comfortable and the bedding is cotton and felt great! There are plenty of towels and the baths are large and updated. The laundry room and washer/dryer are really nice!. The view is spectacular!! This is not home, and there is little bakeware. Pots and pans are pretty low end and the utensils are on par with a college dorm room. There was no broom to be found, so there was plenty of sand in the floor. That being said, we had everything we needed and we were able to cook almost all our meals in the condo. The appliances are nice and new. Beach access could not have been better. This was a great location and several shops and restaurants in walking distance. I would stay here again in a minute. Owner SO nice and responsive. My grandson said it was his favorite vacation ever!!

Great location but overpriced a bit

  • 3 of 5

So I will start from the beginning of the trip. I was over charged a little over $100 and did not receive an explanation after requesting it two separate times. As noted on previous reviews the elevator situation is a disaster on check in day so don't make plans the day you check in. The kitchen cooking supplies were lacking. There was only one very small baking sheet and no larger pots or pans. It was not all bad. The location was perfect with a lot to do locally and the view from 18th floor was great. We will be back to the area but will do more cost comparisons

Owner's Response: Dear Robert, I`m still not sure how you were charged more than the amount paid to VRBO which was Total $2,689.84, I personally left $20 on the breakfast bar to reimburse the extra parking pass as discussed. With regards the kitchenware had you made us aware of anything you required I`m sure we could have accommodated you and provided you with the things you needed. Again if you were overcharged please take it up with VRBO, they do the billing and all monies go directly to them before being dispursed to the owners. Thank you

The property was just as pictured...great view, great beach.

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing time...the property was exactly what we wanted...the view was breathtaking from the 18th floor...we would watch the dolphins swim by most mornings from the balcony while eating breakfast. The condo was a perfect size for my wife, 2 kids, and inlaws. There was a great indoor/outdoor pool and hottub that was just what we needed after a long day at the beach...my wife and i worked out 3 times at the well stocked and clean gym. It was a short walk to the pier for fishing and next door to a beach resturant. James went above and beyond when he searched the condo for my daughters prized ducky that she left behind and mailed it back to st louis...it was a huge relief...we would recommend this condo to anyone and hope to go back next year...
