About Robin Befus and Jay Kollmansberger
We visited Alabama on our vacation and fell in love with the beautiful white sandy beaches and the gorgeous weather. So we decided to make it our home away from home by purchasing this condo. We would love to share this amazing experience with you by welcoming you into our home.
Robin Befus and Jay Kollmansberger purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Robin Befus and Jay Kollmansberger chose Gulf Shores
We love that this property is directly on the beach. You can take a stroll on the beach and arrive at one three great restaurants within a half mile to the West as well the State pier which is located within a 15 minute walk to the East on the beach.
What makes this Condo unique
There is a gift shop located on the ground level and the Sea N Suds restaurant is located a few yards from the building directly on the beach. There are music festivals every May at the Hangout located 5 blocks down the beach or if you just want to enjoy some reggae music on the beach, the Pink Pony is a nice restaurant/Bar where you can have a bite to eat and enjoy the beautiful weather on their inviting deck.

Good location but issues
The complex is old and the condo showed it’s age. It also wasn’t very clean and there were bath towels hanging on a door when we got there. The master bath stopped draining properly in the middle of our stay. I messaged the owners, but didn’t hear back. Parking is the biggest problem because they share the lot with the Sea N Suds restaurant, and the lot is tiny. Most nights we had to park across the street. The location is good and being on the second floor was good since we could use the stairs. We enjoyed the beach. The pool is just okay. All in all, it was a good trip, but the condo could use a deep cleaning.
BAD VRBO EXPERIENCE - BEWARE
I'm not usually one to write a negative review (if you can't say something nice....), but I don't want our experience repeated for any other family. Here's our story. After a day-long drive, we arrived at the appointed check-in time (3pm) to find the unit had not been cleaned (everything left from last stay was still in place). The cleaning crew arrived shortly after we had unloaded our luggage, while I was on the phone to the owner. They had a mishap in a prior unit, and were running late, which is understandable. However, they said they had let the owner know, and he didn't let us know - so we waited an hour in the unit while they cleaned, and then began unpacking, getting ready to meet friends for dinner, etc. It would have been nice to have been given a heads-up from the owner that the crew was running late, and that check-in would be delayed. We could have gone ahead with grocery shopping, etc. I felt like the Griswalds arriving at Wally World in the "Vacation" movie! The unit was not clean and the curtain rod was torn down (from a previous tenant) so privacy was limited at night (it's a 1st floor unit). We called the owner when we arrived, and he offered to buy us dinner (he hasn't), and said he'd put in a repair order for the curtain, but it hadn't been completed. They didn't send us the unit's access information until I asked for it, plumbing was an issue and we still haven't received our security deposit back (we're 10 days out). We've been going to Gulf Shores for 15+ years, and know the ins and outs of going in peak season. On the plus side, if you like being in the midst of the peak season action, the condo location was very convenient. Just understand that with fees, the cost increased by about $200/night.
Fabulous beachfront location in Gulf Shores!
We had a great time at the Boardwalk. Could not have a better location, right on the beach. Great community pool. Sea n Suds restaurant (very popular) right there as well. Condo was nicely appointed. A little tight for 6 but perfect for 4. Balcony looking out on the ocean was priceless. Nicely located near other Gulf Shores destinations. 10 miles to the Flora-Bama. Had a ball and would definitely come back!
Beautifully decorated with nice upgrades!
It’s a lovely unit, perfect view from the balcony, and within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Conveniently located near stairs and elevator. Parking is limited, so we had to park across the street for most of our stay, but it wasn’t a big deal. We would stay here again!
Girls get away
The condo was decorated beautifully but the beds were not comfortable, the master bath needs handicap bar installed and it was not thoroughly cleaned, linens looked and smelled clean but light fixtures dusty and sand in the floor. I do realize sand is hard to sweep up but floor seemed gritty. The toilet would not flush in main bath but I text and someone came right over and fixed the problem. The beach chairs need to be replaced but overall we enjoyed our visit and will likely be back. The condo is very pretty.
Wonderful condo! Perfect location in Gulf shores!
Wonderful condo! Perfect location in Gulf Shores. We had a blast!
Be sure to check out the Sea N Suds restaurant which is steps away from your beautiful condo. The Sea N Suds has a menu which is reasonably priced and includes a variety of burgers, sandwiches and drinks. You can also walk to the infamous Hangout which is located just 5 blocks West on the beach. The Hangout is home to the annual music festival which is a 3-day event that features a variety of well know musicians from around the world. You will be sure to find a variety of entertainment every night of the week.
Just a mile East of your condo, you will find the famous Florabama which has nightly musical entertainment.
