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 Gulf Shores

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.

Christmas in Gulf Shores

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to try Gulf Shores in the winter and were pleasantly surprised. We chose this condo because it is a corner unit on the top floor with a gulf front location. It was just perfect for the two of us.

We received our info email one week beforehand with instructions for accessing the unit, parking, etc. Crystal Shores is just 3/4 miles west of hwy 59 and is a great location, convenient to everything. When we arrived there was a minor mixup with the cleaning crew, but Vicky quickly took care of it. Thanks Vicky for your prompt response.

The balcony was awesome and very spacious. Views are fantastic. There are two chase lounge chairs, a round table with four chairs on the balcony. There is a small indoor heated pool which we used and a hot tub outside which we enjoyed also. Beach is close by. Parking spot is convenient to the elevators.

Just FYI- as others have said, bring all your supplies such as dishwasher pods, dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent, hand soap, shampoo, and body wash, extra toilet paper, and trash bags. Also, paper towels, coffee filters, salt, pepper and spices. If you plan to cook live crab, be sure and bring a large pot. The pot there was fine for shrimp but a bit small for blue crab. I’m not sure what happened to the flatware, but there seemed to but a few pieces missing.

There are tons of towels and plenty of dishes. A paper was delivered every morning, which was nice. There is a regular drip coffee maker, can opener, nice toaster, and a microwave. Dish towels and hot pads were also provided.

My only real complaint is the sheets and mattress pad in the master would not stay on the mattress which was very aggravating. Sheets seemed thin and worn. That was a small thing though and would be an easy fix.

There were more people at the beach during Christmas than I ever would have imagined, but it was not crowded by any means. We enjoyed raw oysters at Papa Rocco’s and The Florabama Lounge. Got take out from the Shrimp Basket which is always good, and cooked fresh shrimp and crab from Billy’s seafood market one night in the condo. The last night we ate at Bahama Bobs which was just ok. All in all it was a very relaxing getaway. We definitely will be back.

Will definitely be back!! My husband and I enjoyed this beautiful condo with a breathtaking view. Very quite, easy to find, easy access to beach, lots of kitchen utensils and so much more. Bed was comfortable in master suite. Only thing we had trouble with was the lock. The door doesn't shut all the way unless you pull on it and you've got to pull the door closed when using the code to unlock or it won't work. That was our only minor issue!! Definitely recommend this place!!!
