About the Property

Recently updated 2 bed 2 bath condo with great view of gulf and access to beach

Unit 1104 has recently been upgraded/updated in one of the best equipped, best located condo complexes in Gulf Shores. Crystal Shores is an 12 year old 14 story complex within walking distance of shopping, dinner, drinks and more. Our objective is to provide an exceptional vacation condo for your accommodations while in Gulf Shores. I'm the owner since 2012 and you can be assured of a better than average experience when you elect to stay in unit 1104. Pleas call me to discuss anything about our unit as well as how to potentially save money on your Gulf Shores vacation. Feel free to call me (Don) at 662.284.6278 from 9AM to 9PM any day.

Seeing is believing and the view from the 11th floor is amazing Yet with 2 fast elevators you can be in the water within 3-4 minutes from walking out of our unit. Forgot the key... not a problem as we have a key-less lock so nothing to lose and everyone can always get in!

If you enjoy working out, we have that covered as well on the 2nd floor you will find a work out room facing the beach with treadmills, weight machines, free weights, stationary bikes and even a dry sauna! For fun, a foosball table as well as pool table are there as well.


Crystal Shores is one of the newer (2004) condominium complexes sitting directly on the white sand beaches of Gulf Shores. WIFI Internet is included and charcoal grills are available for our guests use as well but you must bring your own charcoal/starter/lighter. Rental chaise lounges/umbrella's are available March to November from a 3rd party for about $140/week. As of 1/1/2016 Gulf Shores has stated they will commence to enforce a clean beach policy so all tents/chairs, etc. must be removed 1 hr after sundown. Beach chair concessions that have a business license will have have 1-2 more years before they too will be required to clear the beach each night. This is being done so the city can groom the beach and in part to protect sea turtle nesting. For more information contact the City of Gulf Shores Ph: 251-968-2040. www.cleanisland.org

Our unit comes with 9 ft ceilings so it has a light and airy feeling to it. We have updated and upgraded many items recently so the unit feels fresh. We elected to appoint this unit very comfortably for 6 (1 King bed, 1 Queen bed, and one Queen sleeper sofa). We only rent weekly and only Saturday to Saturday as we have a fabulous cleaner and that is when she can clean..

Upscale bedding is in both bedrooms and both bedrooms feature flat screen TV's. The main room has a 42' LG flat screen TV and a DVD/VHS player. There are glass top tables and a recliner completing the furnishings in the main room.

The dining room set has 4 chairs and with 2 more bar chairs so able to accommodate 6 for a meal.

The kitchen is fully stocked, has both granite counters and stone back splash for those who savor cooking, an upscale cozy space to do so.

The in unit laundry room features full size Whirlpool washer and dryer with a drying rack, an iron and ironing board with the laundry detergent provided. The sheets and towels are replaced annually with 400 count cotton sheets and plush towels. Both providing a difference you will feel!

Our unit has been painted with a relaxing mixture of colors, and comfortable furnishings. The well-appointed living and dining rooms provide a comfortable setting for you to relax in.

The balcony directly overlooks the beach and the view of the Gulf is spectacular... you can see both dolphins and rays swim past easily from up high.

It is furnished with a selection of 4 chairs and 2 chaise lounges. During the hot summer months you remain cool in the shade. During the cooler winter months you will feel the warmth of the sun relaxing in those same chairs providing you with great view of the sunset on the beach.

When you arrive at our unit, you can expect to find it very clean, completely stocked (soap/paper products/cleaners), and in good condition upon your arrival. There are no pets allowed at Crystal Shores except for owners. This is a non-smoking unit as well including the balcony. There is community use smoking balcony available on the second level.

ALL RENTALS THAT ARE WEEKLY WILL RUN SATURDAY TO SATURDAY. Our cleaner DeAnn does a great job. Only cleaner we've had where we did not feel the need to do some cleaning upon arrival. She has a full time job and we accommodate her ability to clean on Saturdays so if that does not work for you we understand and hope you are able to find another property at Crystal Shores she is worth much us to and think our guests will feel the same. Worth it for them as well.

DEPOSIT - The Deposit would be in addition to the Rental Rate and a $300 deposit is required to hold a date for a weekly or daily rental. A $600 deposit is required for stays of 4 weeks or longer. .

Check in time is 3:00 PM and check out time is 9:00 AM. There are shower/changing facilities on the second floor should you choose to arrive earlier and/or stay later on that Saturday.

The condo association does not allow RV's or trailers on the property and occupancy is restricted to 6 people overnight per unit and Michael is there for us to make sure our unit and our guests are in compliance with the Association rules. Two parking passes are available for $22 each (includes tax)..

CALENDAR - Please consult the calendar for available dates as it is ALWAYS current. No dates are held w/o paid deposit via PayPal. Please note that I use PayPal for all Deposits. The use of PayPal allows you to insure your dates are immediately held upon your approval of the invoice and contract terms. You do not have to have a PayPal account as PayPal supports AMEX/Discover/MasterCard/Visa.

Once the rental amount is paid in full via check 60 days prior to your arrival you will be sent an email prior to your arrival with an access code to the lock. Please note that at this time we do not have a Service Fee.... as in No Service Fee being inserted into our listing at this time. There is a key box back-up available should that be needed for any reason. The parking pass(es) will be inside on the counter so nothing to forget and nothing to pick-up or return. If you wish to pay for the rental amount via a credit card we can accommodate AMEX/Discover/MasterCard/Visa via PayPal but that will come with a 3% surcharge as that is what they charge us for doing this.

Vacations should be simple and relaxing so we've tried to make that true from the moment you view this listing to the moment you get an email notification your deposit has already been processed once you've left Gulf Shores.

Thank you for considering Crystal Shores 1104!
