About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath, ( Sleeps 4-6)

Kick back and relax in this comfy, freshly remodeled unit located on the beach side of the road. Let the sound of the surf lull you to sleep and wake to the cool ocean breezes and scenic sunrises. While we are not a direct beachfront unit, we are located on the beach side of the road and the beach can be seen from our balcony.

Take advantage of fabulous fresh seafood year round and either cook in your own kitchen or eat out at a wide variety of friendly, casual dress family oriented restaurants. Enjoy everything Gulf Shores has to offer from snorkeling to para sailing or just play on the beach until dark. We love our special place and want to share it with you. Come be our guest.

If interested in another condo, for friends or additional family, we also own Sunchase 107, which is located directly next door.

About Curtis Gilchrist

Hello, my name is Curtis. I was born in Washington and raised in Tennessee. After getting my degree in Computer Science, I spent two years in Iowa where I met my beautiful wife, Candice. While I did enjoy my time in Iowa, I quickly realized that the cold midwest winters were not for me. That's when we decided to move to Alabama. After taking a couple of vacations to Gulf Shores, we were hooked. There is so much to do and enjoy in Gulf Shores. We want to offer our home to others so we can share this wonderful place and let other people create the same amazing memories that we have.

Curtis Gilchrist purchased this condo in 2014

Why Curtis Gilchrist chose Alabama

We chose this property after vacationing here and falling in love with it. It is very close to the beach, with a pool and hot tub on the property. There are tons of things to do in and around Gulf Shores. You get the small town feel and the people are very friendly.

What makes this condo unique

Sit on the balcony and enjoy a spectacular view of the ocean.

Quality Family Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Our family came in to stay at this property around the Fourth of July weekend. We came into town the Saturday before the holiday and the road going into town was packed and full of heavy traffic! We were very thankful once we finally got to the property that we could walk just a few steps and enjoy the calm and peacefulness of the beach. The unit is just as the owners describe. You can see the ocean from the porch (a view I got to enjoy every morning). A big plus was being able to walk across the street for fresh seafood at the S & S Seafood Market (highly recommend the smoked tuna dip) and basics at the convenience store. The restaurant across the street (The Beach House) has great food and service. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to walk out on to the beach and back to the unit as needed. It's clean and has adequate kitchen items so you can prepare your own meals and don't have to eat out all the time. We like how the unit is close to town and is accessible to places like the Gulf State Park, Gulf Coast Zoo and the National Naval Aviation Museum. We like the laid-back feel of Gulf Shores and the condo unit. Our family had a great relaxing time together. It was pretty cool to see fireworks from the beach too!

Great Gulf Shore Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends an I really enjoyed staying in Curtis's condo. The building is directly on the beach and everything else you could need is near by. The condo was clean and nicely appointed. Curtis provided everything from laundry detergent to basic cooking supplies. I would definitely come back here, thanks again!

A week in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice unit that has been freshened up. This is our 6th time in the complex. The view was great and access to the beach was great as ever. The tile floor makes controlling the sand easy yet new carpet in the bedrooms is nice. The bathroom is updated and very nice. If you like peace and quite this unit might not be for you as it is right above the pool and hot tub, but quite hours start at 10:00 PM. We were here for the beach so this distraction did not matter. The electric lock was a great asset as we did not have to keep track of keys! We REALLY enjoyed our time in the unit. The main room TV could have been bigger and the kitchen could probably be updated. But since we were here for the outdoors, I thought this was very minor. Very reasonable. Hope to get this unit again.

With just 60 steps to the sand, the beach is in your backyard. Enjoy local fresh seafood just down the beach at Bahama Bob's. Go on a deep sea fishing excursion or go para sailing over the gulf. There is an automobile ferry you can take across scenic Mobile Bay, or you can visit historic Fort Morgan. A shuttle to Mississippi Gulf Coast Casinos is available, or you can visit the historic USS Alabama on Mobile Bay. There is so much to do and enjoy in and around Gulf Shores!
