About Pam Baird

Owners Live in Huntsville, Alabama. As lifelong residents of Alabama, we've been regular visitors to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach for decades. We love the beach and look forward to the beautiful sunrises and sunsets on each visit.

Pam Baird purchased this condo in 2012

Why Pam Baird chose Gulf Shores

We looked for years for the right place to buy at the beach. We weren't interested in the high traffic condo units, tending more towards a family oriented complex. Surfside Shores is a low-density complex in a terrific location. It's on the 2 lane portion of the boulevard which helps minimize the traffic, and there are lots of lightly used, scenic side roads that are ideal for bike riding and jogging. And it's easy walking distance to some terrific dining. One of our favorite lunch treats is to take a 10 minute walk in the surf along the beach and have a fish sandwich at Bahama Bob's.

The Waterville water park is just a couple of minutes away and you’ll be less than 5 minutes from the state park where there are terrific walking/riding trails, canoe, kayak and paddle board rentals. And of course there’s the state park fishing pier that you can either fish from or take a walk on just to see what kinds of fish are swimming around.

What makes this condo unique

Beautifully decorated family getaway. Owners that care about keeping the condo in the best condition possible for our guest and ourselves.

Excellent clean building and condo right on beach

  • 5 of 5

Pam was great to us since we booked. The complex and condo were immaculate. The cleaning crew was always about on the complex. The condo is beautiful and made us feel relaxed away from home. Being right on the beach is a huge plus as we could get to it quickly. The only issue we had was security parking attendant no where to be found when we arrived in the evening to obtain our pass, however we texted Pam and she got back to us immediately. Wonderful!!! The attendant walks the lot and returns to the shack every 15 min. Very secure. Enjoyed everything about it. Would recommend it to everyone. There is a grocery market within a 10 minute walk that is very helpful if you forgot something.

It was okay, a bit small

  • 4 of 5

The condo was nice and they did a good job trying to make us comfortable. It was clean and well kept but it was a bit small for my liking. With having a 2 year old, we felt a little cramped. Would recommend this for a couple but not a family. Was still impressed with how well they did with how little space they have.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first beach trip, & first visit to Gilf Shores. The condo was the right size for our family of four. We had an issue our first evening, but Pam was quick to reply to my text and resolved it.

We loved being right on the beach, enjoying breakfast on the balcony with the sound of the waves. So relaxing! While there is lots to do around Gulf Shores, each day we spent time on the beach & the 2 pools. One trip we did make was to Mobile to visit the USS Alabama battleship. Worth setting aside 1/2 day to visit.

We ate dinner at Mikee's, the Fish River Grill, the Shrimp Basket & Janino's for pizza (twice). Janino's is literally right across street from building. Makes for a quick solution when no one want to get out of pool & go somewhere. Not knowing about ultra-long wait times at LuLu's & the Oyster House, we lucked out stumbling onto the Fish River Grill. Their wait staff is friendly, service is great & food was delish! Try the swamp soup!!
