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!

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!

I AM HARD TO PLEASE AT TIMES

  • 4 of 5

I am a neat freak and have had a hard time booking online with out going over details for weeks. this place was great! I was nervous because I booked just about a month before our vacation with my self, boyfriend and 2 kids. it was perfect. it was clean, plenty of room the balconies in the front was perfect to watch kids swim, balcony in the back was ocean and beach view from master bedroom. awesome to nap a toddler and still be able to look outside and your family having fun! quick trip up steps for a snack or drink from pool. it could have used a little updating on furniture, and some of the kitchen appliances, and I would have appreciated more than one roll of toilet paper and we had to go buy hand soap because there was none in our bottle. just little things like that would have been nice so on vacation I didn't have to make a trip to store for things that should have been there for me. I think for $1300 that we paid we could have been given maybe 3 rolls of toilet paper and a 98 cent bottle of hand soap from walmart.
