About Vicki

Thanks for looking at my listing. I am the original owner of Crystal Shores 1407 and I appreciate all the wonderful renters I have had over the years. In Dec, 2014, I redecorated and updated this unit and it looks great. Its a wonderful place to spend a vacation in Gulf Shores. I have been vacationing in Gulf Shores since 1987, long before there were any high rise condominiums. I have been to so many beach vacation spots around the country, but Gulf Shores is my favorite. Not too big, not too small, plenty to do or quiet enough to just sit on the beach and people watch. Being from a very very very small town in Tennessee, Gulf Shores is a great get away anytime of the year for me.

Vicki purchased this condo in 2004

Why Vicki chose Alabama

When I first went to look at this condo in 2004, I went out to the balcony, looked at the view, and bought the condo. Its all about the view, and being right on the water, I love the sound of the waves.

Best condo in the building

  • 4 of 5

The location of this condo was perfect! Top floor, corner unit, has water views from all windows. Spectacular! Clean, quiet and comfortable. We went with another couple and we each had our own suite with this layout. Left off one star because there were not enough supplies. We have rented through VRBO all over the country and internationally and shampoo and soap is always provided. Not so here. Also, not enough TP, only one trash bag, no coffee filters, no spices. We came for the NCAA Volleyball Championships at the Hangout. Perfect 1 mile walk on the beach to the venue. I hope to come back, and if the condo is better equipped I will give it 5 stars.

Best Bed I Have Ever Slept On!

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse was clean and comfortable and views of the sunrise are beautiful (when it wasn't foggy). The electronic lock on the door was cantankerous and we never received our parking pass but we always got in and never got towed so no worries. My only regret is that I did not look to see the brand of the mattress in the master because it sleeps better than mine.

Beautiful, scenic, breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo! Location is very central. Condo very tastefully decorated. Clean and ready for our stay. Adequately equipped kitchen and plenty of towels! Our only issue was with the shower curtain in the king suite. Curtain seems to be hung too close to the tub and it blew into the tub throughout your shower sticking to your body. Possibly installing a curved shower rod would help this. I give it a thumbs up and hope to be able to return in the future! Thanks so much for providing such great accommodations!

We absolutely loved staying here and can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to visit the Gulf Shores area and we couldn't have been more pleased. The unit was beautiful, clean, comfortable and relaxing with up graded furniture. The only thing we were wishing for was a better mattress cover on the bed with more padding that would stay fitted to the mattress. Otherwise, we slept like Kings!! Thanks Vicki for a wonderful relaxing week!
