About Ricky Beale

Hi! I'm Ricky Beale (owner) I live in Illinois but I've always loved the beach. When I 'discovered' Gulf Shores I knew I had found my beach 'home away from home'. The soft sugary white sand, lush trees and foilage and the blue water and sky all combine to make up this piece of paradise. I enjoy taking care of the rentals for this condo on my own after being a travel agent for a company in my hometown and then working and traveling for United Airlines for many years. I enjoy helping people find the perfect spot for a relaxing vacation. Hopefully you will be our guests and find the same beauty and peacefulness in this setting.

Ricky Beale purchased this condo in 2002

Why Ricky Beale chose Alabama

We live in the midwest (Illinois) but our family loves the beach. Our 5 grandchildren and we make many happy memories at our condos in Gulf Shores. This complex...Surfside Shores has the most convenient set-up with the beach sand coming all the way up to the swimming pool deck. Convenience is important to us. We bought this property because Gulf Shores and this complex is family friendly and there is so much for each family member to enjoy.

What makes this condo unique

While staying at Surfside Shores we all enjoy the heated pool and the youngest members of the family enjoy the kiddy pools. When we want fresh seafood or a yummy steak we use the grills and then eat at our beachfront table on our balcony. We sit in the living room or on the balcony and watch the dolphins swim past or see the fishermen pulling in a fish. If we're up early the surise is always awesome and everyone enjoys watching the beautiful sunsets.

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We booked a week for spring break and had an excellent stay. THe condo had everything we could have wanted, and more! I loved the generous supply of towels, including nice beach towels. The crock pot was nice for an easy dinner in when we want to stay out on the beach and not head in early to go out to dinner. We were very comfortable, and the toys and crayons for the kids were a nice touch that let us sleep in just a little bit later in the mornings. I've recommended this condo to many friends since our visit.

First time to Gulf Shores and we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and our family enjoyed every minute of it. The condo is fantastic and has everything you could need. Our kids ranged from 4-18 years old and all of them enjoyed it. One of our favorite things to do was go hunt the crabs on the beach late at night. The view from the condo is amazing along with the spacious balcony. The owner quickly responds to questions you might have about the area, condo, supplies, basically anything! We are planning our trip next year and this will be where we stay again no doubt.

Great first trip to Gulf Shores

  • 5 of 5

We recently made our first trip to Gulf Shores. My husband and I traveled with our 3 kids( 14, 11, and 9). Ricky's condo was perfect for us. We all had plenty of room and the comforts of home. The bed in the master was so comfortable, and opening my eyes and being able to see the ocean from the patio doors in the bedroom was wonderful. One thing I want to mention that I found really great was there was a dehumidifier in the condo. We have always traveled to beaches for vacations and have stayed in may Condo's, but this was the first time I had seen this. It was genius. Our Condo was always comfortably cool and dry feeling. Surfside itself was great too. The kids could play in the pool,and we had super easy access to the beach since you are right on the beach. We rented the chairs for the week and Evan the cabana boy made sure he took care of us. I would highly recommend Ricky's condos for your next vacation. I know we will be back.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed staying 10 days in Ricky's condo. She has thought of your every need, from beach towels, bathrobes, books, puzzles and games (all family friendly) to a well-stocked kitchen (loved the cookware!). It is decorated tastefully and has a warm, cozy feel to it. 4th floor is great - not too high, not too low. Beach is close - that's where I spent most of my time! Loved the doors from master bedroom onto the balcony. The master bathroom is a little small with low ceilings, but that is structural - no way to fix that. There were plenty of bath towels and washcloths. We liked how the building is centrally located. Easy to get everywhere - golf at the State Park (great course!), shopping, restaurants, etc. There are several good consignment shops on Hwy. 59 toward Foley. Old World Bakery and Pizza on 1st Ave. is the best pizza and salad! And we really enjoyed Cactus Flower Cafe at Pelican Place - wonderfully fresh Mexican food and family friendly atmosphere.

Ricky was very quick in her responses and thorough with details. We hope to return to her condo should we be able to go to Gulf Shores again.
