About Elizabeth Lucas Wilson

An Alabama born and raised girl, I grew up spending my summers in Gulf Shores. As a transplant to 'Landlocked Tennessee', I, along with my family, count down the days until our next trip to the salty Gulf air and our little home away from home at Gulfside Townhomes #12.

Elizabeth Lucas Wilson purchased this townhome in 2000

Why Elizabeth Lucas Wilson chose Gulf Shores

My sweet dad, a lover of the Gulf Coast, bought this property just a few short years before he passed away suddenly at the age of 55. He fancied himself the Mayor of Gulfside Townhomes and loved this property and the location better than anywhere else in the world. He actually bought this unit specifically because it was the closest to the pool and he dreamed of being able to watch his grandkids swim while he enjoyed a cold beer on the balcony. Although he never got to see them swim in the pool, he can rest assured that they love the pool and we hope that it will be enjoyed by our family for generations to come.

What makes this townhome unique

There is no other property in Gulf Shores like Gulfside Townhomes. A unique horseshoe-shaped complex with only 40 units with 250 feet of beach front. For visitors, that means even at peak summer season, the pool will never be full, the beach never too crowded and like so many people that vacation here, you get to know your neighbors and even become friends. The complex is super family friendly and with no elevators to hinder your days. You'll enjoy being able to walk right down to the pool and courtyard area and being just steps away from the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world! (In my humble opinion!)

Fit Our Needs Perfectly

  • 5 of 5

We chose this condo based on our need to be near the Hangout Music Festival so the young people could walk to and from. It ended up being great for me as a non-attendee as well! Walked down the sidewalk past the well-kept pool right onto the beach every morning and evening for my walk/run. Condo was very clean, freshly painted, nicely decorated, comfy beds, well stocked with dishes, etc. No neighbors above or below like the high rises! Owners were very helpful and responsive when I had questions as we planned our vacation. We will rent from them again if the opportunity arises!

We love Gulfside!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed at Gulfside six times now and love it every time. This property has the best overall decorative touch and amenities compared to the other four units we’ve been in. The owner was very responsive to all of our questions and we really enjoyed staying here.

Nice unit and easy walk to beach.

  • 3 of 5

The owner was very nice and easy to get in touch with. The Condo is a little dated, but it was clean. There is not a very much space to store any items you bring with you, as the kitchen cabinets provide the only storage for the unit, and they are all full. Not a huge deal, but something to keep in mind. My family and I did have a huge complaint with noise from the pool. This unit is the most close to the pool and since there is not an onsite manager, there is no one to close the pool at 10:00pm. We had guest staying at the pool until 2:30am in the morning the first night we arrived, playing loud music. I spoke with the owner and she told me that i could find the security companies number on a sign around the pool and contact them. I did have to call them on our second night around midnight and they came out and closed the pool. All seven nights we were there, people were at the pool at least 90 minutes past the scheduled close time. Just keep that in mind if you are a early to bed, early to rise family.

Vacation Bliss

  • 5 of 5

The unit was well equipped with great wifi and cable extraordinaire. The air conditioning was superb. There was no noise; it was quiet. Beds were very comfortable. Payment and arrangements were simple through VRBO. The beach was a dream and the pool facilities were well maintained. Loved the coded entry - no keys to take with you to the beach or pool.

Gulfside Townhomes are located just 1/2 mile from Highway 59 and The Hangout. Located just a brief walk from so many popular destinations; Bahama Bob's, Gulf Shores Public Beach, Pier 33 Groceries, The Hangout, Pink Pony Pub, The Shrimp Basket, Souvenir City and more! Need a frozen drink while on the beach?? Just walk up to Bahama Bob's for a margarita and back to your chair in minutes! With only 40 units in the entire complex with 250 feet of beach-front, you'll never have to search for a place to set up your beach tents and gear. It's an like a private oasis in the middle of the Gulf Shores action!
