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 Gulf Shores

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.

Perfection in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for us – four adults and one child. The place was very clean on our arrival. The view off the balcony was picture-perfect. Ample towels for five people. Lots of beach towels. The kitchen was stocked with quality pans, lots of dishes and glasses. The beds were wonderfully comfortable. They were on risers so luggage could be stored and out of the way. The washer and dryer was right in the kitchen and was very convenient to use. We had two vehicles and never had a problem finding parking places. The location was great – to the west of Hwy 59 and out of the congested traffic area. Short walk to beach out the back of the building. Pool was clean and had plenty of chairs for guests. Cannot think of anything to improve this rental. Am recommending to my friends.
