Why Kelli chose Gulf Shores

I bought this condo because of the complex amenities. The pool is the most popular amenity after our ocean and lagoon private accesses. Our family loves to play tennis in the evening, so the lighted tennis courts are a plus. Fishing has become a favorite for us. We have caught numerous white trout, crabs, flounder(20' was our largest) and redfish(24' was our largest) right off our private piers. There is so much to do right on the property so we hardly leave once we get here.

What makes this condo unique

Private access to bay and ocean.

M'eh, nice room, pretty short on amenities

  • 2 of 5

The Good: The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. The location was good, with a dock out back for fishing, which we did every morning and night. The beach is directly across the road, a short walk to perfect sand. All in all, a great location, and a nice place to stay.

The Bad: You settle on a room price, then find out the hotel charges an additional fee to park. How about we just add that to the room and call it even? The rules and regulations of the room are a bit overbearing, turn this on, turn this off, heat at x degrees, air at x degrees or you lose your deposit, which by the way they charge in advance, then take a few weeks to refund. The room has all the comforts of 1984, which means no wifi and no cable. You get free channels over the antenna, which aren't very many, and which don't come in at all on the living room TV. If you have kids and you're planning on them not hurting each other by parking them in front of cartoons, good luck, you get ZERO channels on the living room TV. The bedroom TV gets all the local channels, including beach tv, the news, PBS, and anything else that nobody has to pay for. However, this is all on the smallest LCD TV known to man. I didn't know 19" TVs were used for anything besides small computer monitors, but I was evidently wrong. I guess when you're showcasing all PBS has to offer, size really doesn't matter. Interestingly the living room TV is a nice size, just doesn't get any channels. At. All. It is suitable for staring at longingly, or turning on and getting motion sickness from the choppy digital antenna madness. If you're planning on washing anything besides a small baby in the shower/tub, the evidently 1 gallon water heater provides enough warm water for a full 5 minutes of bathe time, so get your rubber duckies ready. If more than yourself is staying, get ready to take shifts taking showers. My guess is, like cable, having a water heater turned up high is just too dang expensive. Seriously, there should be a "NO CABLE" disclaimer, it's 2017. Lastly, if you are contacting the owner, send 2 emails each time. The first one evidently always goes into junk mail or the trash or something. Second or third one does the trick.

Room was nice, but lack of TV and hot water turned it into a horrible trip with 2 kids.

Owner's Response: You address your list: Your check in information states(as well as website) a parking pass to be paid at time of arrival. This is a requirement from the complex. I do not have the option to collect and pay for you. The procedures are one page with a short list of common sense requests. My guests have the option to set the heat/AC to what is comfortable to them instead of many who have the thermostats locked. However, I ask that it be returned to a median temperature after check out and vacant. You contacted me with two questions, if you could check in late and for your deposit refund. You sent two requests for late check in and I answered both. The late check times as yes and explained that check in procedures would be sent separately with the information. I sent the procedures two times asking for a confirmation that you received. Finally I sent you a text and you confirmed. Also my phone number was on the check in procedures. The refund you asked twice in the same day. I submitted the refund request 5 days after you checked out. It was taken out of my account the same day so I do not know why it took two weeks for you to receive it. Yes, the building was built in 1984. My condo was totally remodeled two years ago. The 40 gallon water heater(no such thing as 1 gallon) was replaced 6 years old. I have not had anyone mention that hot water was an issue but I will definitely check it out. The 24" TV in the bedroom is mounted on the wall. Hard to find them larger with a built in DVD player. The living room TV is 40". Neither TV has an antenna so if one tv gets regular cable then the other must have been disconnected. This has occurred before by cleaning crew by accident. There is not HBO or other extra movie channels provided but most my guests are enjoying the beach/pool/hot tub/tennis/fishing piers and it has not been an issue. You were provided my direct contact number if you needed anything. I wish you would have called me regarding the Cable TV/Hot water so that I may have prevented your horrible vacation experience.

The property was nice and better than expected.

My issues are with the condo owner. Kelli was very observant when a hurricane was about to hit her condo but absolutely silent on three requests for the status of ny security deposit and a refund as we came under a mandatory evacuation from Gulf Shores.

Owner's Response: The refund for the deposit and for the early departure was processed within 4 days of your scheduled departure date. I contacted you multiple times regarding the status of the hurricane. You stated that you wanted stay instead of heading back to New Orleans into the storm. I let you know then that you would be refunded for the night whether you stayed or if you decided to leave. The last time I checked in with you, you decided to leave since the storm had turned and New Orleans was out of the storms path. The mandatory evacuation was called 6 hours after you checked out due to rising water over the roads. Luckily we received only rising water and tropical winds for a few hours.

Not clean. Unresponsive owner. Kept deposit.

  • 1 of 5

Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else. We never got check in information and had to contact the owner. When we checked in, the condo was filthy and hadn’t been cleaned. When we contacted the owner about it, she didn’t even apologize and told us to “just go to the beach.” Which is not a very helpful suggestion when you’re traveling with a baby and just spent several hours at the beach killing time until check in. The woman who finally came to clean was very apologetic and nice, however.

This condo is advertised as a one bedroom but in reality it is a glorified studio. The entrance to the condo opens up into the bedroom and there is no bedroom door. The bedroom opens right up into a small hallway and the rest of the condo. When you advertise a one bedroom, you expect a separate room.

The living room is sparse with a small couch as the only furniture. No ottoman or coffee table. The couch pulls out so we stretched out on that in the evenings. Don’t plan on using that as a bed though, because there are no sheets or pillows. We put the bedspread from the bed down on the mattress in order to have something to sit on. We left the bedspread on the pull-out mattress, and when we never received our deposit back we contacted the owner. She claims the bedspread was missing from the condo, when in reality it was still on the couch. So not only did they not clean the couch (nasty) she kept our deposit for something that was never damaged or removed from the condo. If you’re reading this and plan to use the pull-out couch, you might want to wash the bedspread because I doubt they ever did. We are polite renters and left the condo far cleaner than it was when we checked in. Very disappointing all around.

On a positive note, a couple good restaurant recommendations are Tin Top and the Gulf Restaurant. Check them out.
