Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Reef 602 was perfect. The unit was clean and had a great gulf view from the balcony. Couldn't ask for a better location! Both the owner and property manager were very helpful. Looking forward to a return visit.

The best location on the beach is right here! Everything that you would want is within a short walk

  • 4 of 5

Me and my family had a wonderful time and loved this property. Everything from shops, restaurants and grocery store are within a short walking distance. We loved the set up of the property with the covered parking, outdoor pool and private balcony off the bedrooms. A much more comfortable setting then your typical high rise condos you will find everywhere else, this place felt much more personable. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. The only thing keeping me from that fifth star rating was that the master king bed is definitley ready for an upgrade. We still loved it and would highly reccommend a relaxing stay here!

Owner's Response: Greg; Thanks very much for your reply. We have upgraded the master bedding and we have also (our association) upgraded the entire pool and pool area! New Pool, Bar-B-Que's, everything! We would love to have your family visit with us again next trip down! Thanks, and enjoy the summer. A. Cook

This was a perfect place for us!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time! We had two small children and my older in-laws and there was plenty of room to move around. The location was perfect in relation to the beach and restaurants. We had one issue with the air conditioner and it was fixed right away. We will definitely stay here again when coming back to gulf shores!
