About Susan Wilson

I lived in Central AL until 3 years ago and in April 2011 a tornado came thru and I lost my home. I moved to the beach that had always been my dream and lived there for 2 years and actually lived and rented this unit for 1 year and a half and then moved back to Central AL and loved it so much I bought it. I loved living there it was so close to everything and very short distance to the beach.

Susan Wilson purchased this condo in 2014

Why Susan Wilson chose Gulf Shores

Convenient, location was great, but not the cleanest!

  • 3 of 5

If you are looking for cleanliness sadly you won't find it here! Property Manager/Owner was helpful and she did send someone out to clean immediately, however it was awkward watching someone clean for an hour or more when your family is tired and hungry from traveling. I understand it is a high traffic area and it is hard to rely on a cleaning staff and the owner did try to accommodate us . Upon arrival we could not get the door open and had to call the property manager, after entering the code correctly the door still would not open and we were told to use a credit card to break in, we did and it worked but after this my family didn't feel safe with the door locked! We had to clean before settling in. The trash can lid was disgusting and the floors were filthy. The countertops in the kitchen had not even been wiped off and the refrigerator was nasty! There was literally an old half eaten oatmeal pie cake in the window. The room my husband and I stayed in smelled of pee and throw up! The bedding was clean or we would not have stayed but at that point what could I do? We had nowhere else to stay and this had already been paid for. The ceiling fan had a 1 inch layer of dust, I was scared to turn it on due to allergies. Housekeeping did arrive after we called to voice our concerns. Property Manager did what she could at the time. Location was perfect, seems family-friendly, pool was great and decor was cute. Units are right next to each other so next door the air conditioning unit went out and one entire day it was nonstop banging(this couldn't be avoided and I understand stuff happens) FYI park under the unit, we made the mistake of parking in an empty space near the road and freshly cut grass was thrown all over my car and it stuck and dried so it had to be washed, not exactly what we wanted to do on vacation, that's why we did it before! We received no instructions 24 hrs. prior to arrival and had to message the owner for info, I have never had a bad experience before and we have used this site for 4 or more previous vacations this is my first review only because I was unhappy with the uncleanliness. I hope the housekeeping issues will be worked out for future guests. I would consider staying here again if it had a thorough deep cleaning.

Enjoyed it

  • 4 of 5

This is an adorable little condo! Location was great with just a short walk to the beach, close to restaurants and shops. We had a party of five, three of them being 12 and under. The overall Sand Dollar property is an older property with communal pool and decks. There were a few minute details with the cleaning staff which I mentioned to Susan. She was very apologetic and I have no doubt will be taken care of in the future. And I should add that I am very picky to detail which is why I say minute. Susan was prompt in responding and answering questions that I had. I would definitely bring my family here again. The wifi was difficult to access and kept dropping but was not a big deal since I was on vacation. Overall, we had a great time and always love coming to Gulf Shores. This little condo is worth staying at with great price, great location, adorable decor and great owner! Thank you for an enjoyable time.
