Overview

About the property

3 bd 3 1/2 bth beachfront condo. 6th floor corner unit-sleeps 9-excellent shape!

Summer 2017 is our condo's 4th summer on the rental market. We enjoyed it as our home-away-from-home for 10 years before we decided to open it up to rentals. Our condo is on the 6th floor of Bristol (Bristol 601)- a corner unit providing great views! We have 3 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths, plus a comfy sofa-sleeper in the den. The master bedroom offers a queen sized bed with a chair that converts to a twin bed. The 2nd bedroom offers a queen sized bed. The 3rd bedroom offers a trundle bed that converts to 2 twin beds or a king bed. * ALL of the bedrooms have a private full bathroom! There is a 1/2 bath in the foyer for guests or as an extra bath. Our condo sleeps 9 and also has seating in the dining area for 9. The dining table seats 6 and we have 3 bar stools. Each building at The Beach Club has its own pool and hot tub as well as direct access to the beach on a newly- renovated pier. The kitchen is equipped with all major appliances as well as numerous utensils and cooking necessities. There is a washer and dryer in the condo so doing laundry is very easy! The Beach Club offers daily and weekly access to their club house, indoor and outdoor pools, game room and fitness center for a fee. Please see the front desk associate at The Beach Club club house for more info on pricing and hour (there's also a price list in our condo). The club house also offers a restaurant and spa which do not require a membership fee. Simply speak to someone at the spa for an appointment or a reservation specialist for the restaurant. We put together a binder with lots of information about the Ft. Morgan/Gulf Shores area. Once you check in, I recommend taking a few minutes to review the information on medical facilities, restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, movie theaters, etc. We hope you choose "Five Palms"!!

About Monique Foto

Tom and I have enjoyed 13 wonderful years at our condo with our family which includes 5 grandchildren (hence the name 'Five Palms')! We are from Mandeville, Louisiana and grew up in New Orleans. 2017 will be our 4th summer on the rental market. The condo was our second home for years so we take pride in keeping it in tip top shape! Kathy & Tom

Monique Foto purchased this condo in 2001

Why Monique Foto chose Gulf Shores

The family atmosphere and amenities at The Beach Club were a big reason we chose to make this our second home. We love the white, powdery sand beaches and Gulf breezes! It's such a change from our weather at home...it always takes our worries away!

What makes this condo unique

'Five Palms' has plenty of living space for our family. We have enjoyed playing card games in the dining area, dining on the balcony, watching movies while we rested from the beach. Having 3 1/2 baths was such a help with a large group. The children have enjoyed riding the tram that takes you from the club house to The Village for ice cream at The Creamery. It's a short walk, but the tram makes it fun!

We had a great time. First time to stay at this condo, but everything was just as described.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. We especially loved having a bathroom off of every bedroom. The resort and condo was so clean and well kept. We will be back.

Owner's Response: We're so pleased that you were happy with the condo! Having a bathroom for each bedroom is such a plus! The extra 1/2 bath has come in handy when we went with the whole family! I hope you all made great memories on your beach trip!

Great week at the beach!

  • 4 of 5

Just spent a week at the "Five Palms" and loved it! Tons of space, big bedrooms & kitchen. Plenty of seating inside & out. We hosted dinner for 14 twice and had plenty of room. Plus you can't beat the view. Great place, you won't regret staying at the "Five Palms"!

Owner's Response: Dear Jeff, We are SO pleased that you had such a great experience at "Five Palms"! Our family is able to enjoy the condo during July 4th and we have 11-12 people for dinner. If you return to Ft. Morgan we hope you decide to stay at "Five Palms" again! Take care! Sincerely, Monique

Beautiful views, spacious condo

  • 5 of 5

Love the end unit with the wrap around balcony - the views are just tremendous! Our family had a wonderful time in this unit. It is high enough to enjoy views, low enough to take the stairs if you want to. Loved having the 3 1/2 bathrooms - with 5 of us, this was a definite plus. Owner was prompt to respond to a very minor issue we encountered. Will definitely be returning to this unit in the future!

Owner's Response: October is such a gorgeous time to be at the beach! If you decide to return to The Beach Club, I hope you come back to Five Palms! The wrap-around balcony gives you a little more space to enjoy that priceless view! I'm really glad y'all had a nice time!

Beach Club property ID # 592027

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the property... it was very clean and well maintained. The toilets in the master bedroom and the bedroom with a balcony kept hanging up and we would have to jiggle the handle to stop the water from continuing to run. I would suggest a couple of lounge chairs for the balcony. I would have enjoyed stretching out to nap or read.

Owner's Response: Dear Linda, I'm glad to hear you all had a nice beach get-a-way! If you decide to return to "Five Palms", please let me know asap if there are any issues. I have a maintenance staff on-call and I could have sent someone over to stop the commodes from running. I will let the owners know about your suggestion on the lounge chairs. Thanks so much for staying at "Five Palms"! I hope y'all come back! Sincerely, Monique "Five Palms"

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay. it was a beautiful condo directly on the beach with beautiful views. The condo was well furnished and the kitchen had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the layout, in general, was very spacious and convenient. Someone mentioned in an earlier review about the living room seating being inadequate but the owner has just added two very comfy chairs so there was plenty of seating. We found this condo to be just perfect and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Carol, I'm so glad you all had a great stay! We hoped the added seating would make it more comfortable for a family. We want each and every family that chooses "Five Palms" to have a relaxing and fun visit to the beach! I cherish all of our memories from the condo. I sure hope you all come back again! Sincerely, Monique

Plenty of Room with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

The condo had plenty of room with a wrap around balcony providing a great view of the beach. It was very clean and decorated beautifully. We never had to wait on an elevator to get to the 6th floor! About 15 minutes out of town from the main strip but well worth it! The Beach Club was well maintained with great restaurants and an creamery for the kids. My son loved playing basketball on the courts. Several outdoor pools made for some fun too! We drove 20 minutes to the ferry to go to the Estuarium on Dauphin Island. The kids enjoyed it! The owners were very helpful. I would definitely book it again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We have had years of wonderful memories at the condo and we want our guests to, also! There are so many fun areas to take advantage of at The Beach Club. My son enjoyed having the basketball court near by....happy you all did, too! We're glad to hear you took advantage of the Ft. Morgan Ferry..it makes the drive West much nicer! I hope you choose "Five Palms" again for your future beach vacations!
