Gulf Front 2 BR Dog-friendly Condo with Oceanviews

Gulf Front 2 BR Dog-friendly Condo with Ocean views; full size washer and dryer in unit; brand new leather sofa sleeper in den. King-sized bed with brand new mattress in Master Suite and new XL Twin over Queen mattresses in bunk beds in the guest bedroom. Sleeps 7 along with your cute little Benji comfortably. Sundry items like salt, pepper, butter, spices, extra paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, etc. included. Come visit Gulf Shores and enjoy its old-school beach feeling, minimal crowds and traffic and laid-back lifestyle. Head around the corner to the Flying Harpoon (called the Poon) off 59 to get yummy seafood poboys, live music and meet the locals or just walk down the beach to the Beach House or Bahama Bob's for drinks and dinner. There are plenty of grills beach and poolside for you to cook up your own catch either that you caught fresh that day or from Gulf Shores Seafood down the street. Or simply sit outside the condo or on the beach directly in front of it and enjoy the sunset with your friends and family. Nothing's better than being on the beach in Gulf Shores especially when you can bring your sweet beast with you.

About Stephanie Hart

I'm originally from Memphis but moved to New Orleans to escape Washington DC in 1999 and to live closer to my parents who retired down here. Owning a bit of the beach reminds me of them.

Stephanie Hart purchased this condo in 2014

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for fall break and it truly was one of the best experiences we have had. The place is clean, has a great view of the ocean, and also has a lot of privacy. There is no one above us so we heard no noise at night. Its an easy walk to the beach plus there is an outdoor grill and great pools. We highly recommend this place and will be planning our next trip there.

June 2016

Condo is dated and wasn't "cleaned" very well. It wasn't dirty however it was spot cleaned at best. Overall it was very nice. Location was perfect, parking was horrible. You have this tiny little spot to get in and out of. I wouldn't even attemp it, I made hubby do it. It's second floor so getting dogs up and down the steps got tiring and they were scared of steps so had to carry. The doggie doo area is right next to the busy highway which was uncomfortable to me. The master bedroom bed was amazing however the 2 twin beds were horrible. My kids wanted to sleep on the floor instead. The location however was perfect. Literally steps from the beach as well as the pool. Pretty good stay id say!!!! We sat on deck in the morning and watched dolphins in the Gulf. The pics show couch and love seat. No! Only couch and an office chair so all of couldn't sit and watch a movie or even tv in the living room. Stephanie was very nice and easy to work with. And very helpful about the area on things to do.

Beach escape!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has a great owner and a great location and was the perfect size for our two small kids and small dog. It was very clean and smelled good when we arrived. The kitchen is very well equipped. The parking is right below the unit, and there are great views from the deck. The beds are comfortable and the towels are soft. There is a pet walking station right in front of the condo community, as others have stated. We did not know, and other travelers may want to know, that per Gulf Shores ordinance, dogs are not allowed on the beach, even on a leash. We were warned by the canine unit our second day. The owner states that this is on beaches from Gulf Shores to Destin, FL. Being from Arkansas we didn't know though and others may need to know. There was an issue with the pools not being open the first day, but the owner was on top of it once made aware of it, and the pool across the street was open the second day. She is really easy to work with and was always quick to respond to questions. The pool across the street is actually a really nice location: palm trees and quiet. The pool towards the beach was being repaired and I suspect is open now. We were there during spring break and some of the larger condo towers around this community were hopping with the young ones, so there is a lot of noise outside (inside the unit is quiet), but again, it's spring break. Overall this is a great find especially if you are traveling with four leggers and small ones. The condo community itself was quiet, clean, and the people are nice. The owner and management company were so helpful when I stupidly locked us out of the condo! Don't make the same mistake! Also, there are lounge chair rentals right on the beach in front of the condo (about $25 per day) and I highly recommend them (Ike's company). They were easy to deal with and it was nice to have a comfy beach chair and umbrella, and not have to bring one from home.

Owner's Response: Thanks, M., for the very nice review. Again so sorry about the pool but was very glad the 2nd one was open. Also, I was happy that the management company came through with the spare key! I give a 10% discount to all returning guests so please let me know if you ever want to come back. You and your family (furry and not furry) are always welcome! - Stephanie
