About Jennifer and Mike Nelson

We are Mike and Jennifer Nelson from Monroe, Louisiana. Mike is an Airline pilot and I am in Industrial Sales. We have a 8 year old daughter that loves coming to the beach. We are both graduates of LA Tech University.Mike grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast so making the decision to purchase a condo on the water was the perfect choice! He can fish and I can lounge on the beach!

Jennifer and Mike Nelson purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jennifer and Mike Nelson chose Alabama

We purchased our Condo at Crystal Shores because it was a beautiful condo and relatively new. The complex is a quiet, family friendly unit with beautiful white beaches with all the amenities a family could need. We love sharing our home away from home with our family and friends while making memories. The beach is less crowded and quiet yet close enough to all the action of Gulf Shores! There is great restaurants, entertainment, and shopping. This complex has one of the best Home Owners Associations so it is always making improvements to better service its owners and their guests!

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with our unit because of the tall ceilings, modern feel, and larger than normal balcony. It's a great extension of the unit and allows for dolphin watching, gorgeous sunrises/sunsets, and people watching, of course!

It was a smaller complex with fewer units, so no overcrowding. Great location, easy to get to anywhere quick yet away from the hustle and bustle. The beach is so close and just a few steps away! Who could resist that! You won't find a better view so book your next beach vacation with us! We guarantee you will love it as much as we do!

This is a wonderful place that exceeded our expectations! The kitchen was modern and well equipped. The unit was spacious, tastefully decorated and very clean. We enjoyed the beautiful view while dining on the huge terrace. We utilized and enjoyed the ocean view gym and the game room. The location was excellent, minutes from shopping, movies, restaurants. The owners were very helpful in making the whole rental process go smoothly. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
