About Karen

Owners are Karen and Scott -- Scott was born in Pensacola and this has always been a family vacation spot. We love the area and know it well and finally able to purchase our second condo!

Karen purchased this condo in 2014

Why Karen chose Alabama

Crystal Shores West is a luxury condominium built in 2006 located on the beautiful beach of Gulf Shores. You'll have breath taking views of the Gulf and all its beauty. The spacious wrapped around private balcony (accessible from master bedroom or living room) lets one truly enjoy the ultimate beauty of Gulf Shores. It is located near shopping, The Hangout and restaurants in the heart of Gulf Shores. The units are larger/wider/newer and more up scale than the 'normal rental units.'

What makes this condo unique

Water views from every bedroom. Also corner Unit mean it has extra light with the additional windows in family and dining room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Scott and Karen,

Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed your property last week. The view when you walk in is one of those AH HA WOW moments. It was so mesmerizing that we took our stuff into the master bedroom that I wondered where on earth the other 2 bedrooms were.

We got to take in the beach. Naval museum for 2 days, Fort Morgan, Barkley Park and area up there, we drove around on HWY 98 I think it was where the homes are by the Gulf. Had to stop at Surf Style, gee there were not many to pick from. Did eat at Lamberts and Bob's. Lots of summer stuff was not able to do, but there was plenty. Everyone around there was nice and when you have your Iowa shirts on it brings conversation from all over. We were invited to a "group get together" and learned some things there as well. Beach was great. We have never seen such white sand. (Compared to white blowing snow)

I will definitely refer people to your condo and site. It was amazing.

Again thanks so very much.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our family just spent a week at this fabulous condo for spring break and had an unbelievable time. Access to the condo and parking was super easy, as was access to the beach and local restaurants.

Our 3 boys loved the spacious bedrooms and private bathrooms and the master was beautiful with a patio door with gorgeous views of the Gulf. The large patio is where we enjoyed most of our breakfasts as well as a place to relax at the end of the day. The large kitchen came supplied with anything and everything, which helped make the vacation even more enjoyable. The kids can't wait to go back!

Spontaneous Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to find this place last minute, due a cancellation. It was exactly as described; beautiful, tastefully decorated, immaculately clean, views from every room, very functional kitchen. We had 10 people (7 adults, 3 children ages 11-16), and we had a great time! Everyone had room to spread out, and the bathrooms are huge. We took full advantage of all the activities the condo offered- pool, hot tub, pool tables, foosball table. And, of course, the beach. Everyone had a great time! We would stay there again in a heart beat. In fact, we did not want to leave! The host, Karen, always responded when we had questions and was very helpful. The security guard who monitors the game room and pool area was also personable and helpful and great with the kids. This was our first time in Gulf Shores, and we loved every second.

College Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with our college age daughter and her friends down to Gulf Shores during one of the craziest times of the year, Spring Break! From the beginning of the rental process the owners were amazing to work with, quick to respond to emails and phone calls. The check in/out process was simple and painless. The condo itself was the nicest beach condo we have ever stayed in. It is in an excellent location, corner unit, lower floor, easy to access, with great views, all around excellent. The units were insulated extremely well, we could not hear anything once inside our condo. The owners provided information about things to do in the area and places to eat, great tips. The staff and security personnel were always visible and available to assist with any of our needs or questions. The spring break crowd brought many challenges for the Gulf Shores community but the staff at Crystal Shores was prepared and did not let anyone's vacation get ruined by irresponsible teenagers. We felt very lucky to be staying there. We will visit Gulf Shores again and we hope to get lucky enough to rent this unit on our return!! Thanks for an excellent week!

A week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family has traveled internationally and stayed in many condos and hotels. This condo was the nicest, cleanest one we have ever rented. The owners were great at directing us to the many interesting things to do while we were there. The hot tub and sauna were a God send after our long drive. We were able to check in on time without waiting. The condo was beautifully decorated and all amenities were first class. We visited with other owners and guests as well as local business people and found all to be very friendly and welcoming, thereby adding to the local charm of the community. Thank you for a wonderful time!! We will be returning. Lawrence and Pat Wilkinson

Awesome Condo - coming back soon

  • 5 of 5

Over the years my wife and I have stayed in several condo in Gulf Shores. We found the perfect one!

I would (and already have) recommend this beautiful condo to friends. We loved sitting on the balcony watching the dolphins during the morning and stunning sunsets at night. The views are amazing.

The condo is stunning. Just as advertised. The kitchen is well stocked with everything we needed. The furniture was newly upgraded and in great condition. Every room was well decorated and has stunning water views.

The condo is close to great restaurants and activities. Karen and Scott recommended S&S seafood market close to the condo. We had the steamed Royal Red shrimp - Love Them!!!

Karen and Scott were great to work with. They were very friendly, professional and quick to respond to our questions. We look forward to coming back soon!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

I fell in love with this property the minutes I opened the door! The condo was perfect, it had everything that we needed and was beautiful on the inside. It was tastefully and comfortably furnished. The three bedrooms and three bathrooms were perfect for my family:) We spent a lot of time on the wrap around balcony which offered a gorgeous view of the beach and we saw dolphins! The facility is just minutes away from great restaurants, shopping, and adventures for the family. I will definitely return and will recommend this unit to my friends. Thank you Karen and Scott your kind assistance and for allowing us to enjoy your awesome place!
