Why Karen chose Gulf Shores

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.'

Hello Jane -- thank you for taking the time to write this review and so glad you had a great time. Please come and visit us again :)... Happy New Year! Karen and Scott
The Condo was perfect, we will stay again!!
I can't say enough about this property and the owners!
I had to call, text and email Karen to ask questions about the room and what all was in it. She was always helpful and joyful in all communication. She answered immediately...Yes, there is an ironing board, yes we have blow dryers :-). We had a lot of luggage. There were plenty of luggage and shopping carts.
The condo is beautifully furnished and very spacious. I have 8 in my family and my father stayed with us as well for a total of 9. We had plenty of room and were not on top of each other. The balcony was big and the views from it and every bedroom were gorgeous. The rooms were bright, big and decorated tastefully. My dad had a room and bathroom to himself. My 4 daughters ages 9-16 slept in the room with two beds and had their own bathroom as well. It was plenty of room!! Each bedroom had its own TV which was helpful so the kiddos could watch appropriate aged shows, while the adults could watch what they wanted. There were a total of 4 TV's. My husband and I stayed in the master bedroom. It was huge and the bathroom had a double vanity. My little boys (ages 3 and 6) were going to sleep on the pull-out couch, but instead they wanted to "camp out" in the master bedroom's closet. We thought for sure they wouldn't want to continue sleeping there, but they did all week and loved it! They had a blast with pillows, blankets, stuffed animals and flash lights.
My dad and kiddos loved the hot tub! The inside pool was a hit too since it was too cold to swim outside. I worked out every morning in the weight room. I saw dolphins from the treadmill and the balcony in our room. The game room was a bonus! My dad loves to play pool so it was fun for him to play with the grandkids.
As a picky momma, I have to say that the room was VERY clean. We washed our clothes everyday that we were there. It was so nice because I didn't have to wash any when I got home. The balcony was very safe for my little ones too which has always been a concern for me.
We were visiting for my nephew's wedding and celebrating Thanksgiving. The condo is really close to everything. We had to run to Wal-Mart several times and it didn't take long at all. There is an awesome playground and museum in Gulf Shores that was only minutes away. We ate at Bubba's Seafood which was great and the kids loved the atmosphere. It was the best Thanksgiving ever!
Feeling blessed, The Dailey Family
Thank you Angela for taking the time to write this review. I love all the details and warms my heart that you had such a great time. The reason I got into this business is I love creating family memories that will last a life time. I hope you come back and visit us again. Karen and Scott
Fabulous Condo for an Enjoyable Vacation
This condo is one of the cleanest I've ever seen. The views of the beach on the wrap around balcony were excellent. Lots of space in the bedrooms and bathrooms. It was a bonus to hear personally from the owners themselves at the time of booking and for questions throughout the process. Looking forward to returning!
Thank you Emily for your wonderful review. I changed housekeepers in January and LOVE my new crew. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you visit us again next time you're in Gulf Shores. -- Karen
Beautiful Condo - Great Experience!
We were VERY pleased with this condo! We loved the floor-to-ceiling windows in each room, the wrap-around balcony, and that it was a corner condo offering multiple views. We especially liked that each bedroom had its own attached bathroom, allowing us each to have our own privacy. It is very spacious - more spacious than the pictures appear online. We also liked that it was located on a lower floor, with a great view of the beach. The washer and dryer were an added plus, not to mention the well-stocked kitchen. This condo truly felt like ‘home’ away-from-home, with our every need being met. Upon arriving, one thing that really stood out to us was how clean the condo was. Not only did it look immaculately clean, but it actually ‘smelled’ clean. The owners were great to work with. They were quick to respond to any questions we had and kept in touch throughout the week to make sure all of our needs were being met. We had a great vacation and would definitely stay here again!
Thank you Rita and Ron for the wonderful review! I am so glad you felt the condo was "home" away from home.... Looking forward to you coming and visiting us again. Karen and Scott
Beautiful condo and excellent ocean view
We were extremely impressed with the condo and property. The condo is beautifully decorated, had everything we needed, and the views of the ocean are amazing! With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, we had more than enough room for everyone. The owners were very accessible and even texted us to make sure everything was going well. They also provided a list of recommended restaurants and things to do that saved us a ton of time searching for places on our own. We would definitely rent from them again. Thank you for a wonderful vacation, we didn't want to leave!!
I appreciate you taking the time write such a wonderful review. Thank you Amy. I'm so glad you had a great trip and hope you come back to visit us again :).
My family and I love staying here. We have stayed in Gulf Shores the last 5 years and have stayed in this condo four of the five years. The other year it was already booked! (and the condo we ended up staying in was nowhere as nice) The kitchen is always well stocked and a good size. We always feel right at home here. The furnishings are nice and comfortable. The condo is very spacious and clean. The view is beautiful from this condo and the balcony is large and has lots of seating. We will be staying there in the future for sure. The owners are great to work with!
Wow, Carol.. thank you for the great review! The feeling is mutual, we love having you come stay with us... Looking forward to next year :)... Karen
