Morning Ms. Cathy!

Thank you for letting us stay here! We have enjoyed it! I was checking to see if there is anything we need to do before we leave tomorrow. There was not a list that we saw.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

This was me and my girls' first trip to Gulf Shores. My husband has been there many times already. The condo is clean and neat with lots of storage! We did have an issue with the garbage disposal but it was fixed promptly with no additional issues during our 7 dat stay. It is just a short walk to a beautiful, white sandy beach and the gazebo on site is perfect for sitting and enjoying the view.

Family atmosphere

  • 4 of 5

Unit was very homey and relaxing. Of course, there times when we wished for another half bath at least, but all in all we enjoyed our stay. The other families that stayed here were friendly and considerate. The beach was not as crowded as the other places on the beach because of the small number of units.

One of the problems we had was the electrical outlets. They are so worn sometimes the plugs would fall out. In the bedroom with the twin beds, when our grandson plugged in his charger the lights and the television went off.

The stairs were not as much of a problem as I had feared. I had to stop and breathe on the last landing before reaching our level. The exercise was good for me. Unfortunately I did fall on the small deck where the hose was. It was not the fault of the property. It had started raining and storming and my feet flew off the wet wood. I received some bad bruises on my arm and I landed on my right knee which caused lots of soreness and stiffness. However, it didn't prevent any of my activities.

Enjoyable Experience

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very clean. Excellent access to the beach...just steps outside the door. Love the Key Code entry concept. It made life easier not having to worry about keys for everyone. We would definitely stay here again.

This was our second time staying at the Beachfront and our first staying in this condo. The owners have taken great care with redecorating by attending to every detail. I am someone who appreciates and values the aesthetics of a living space; I couldn't have been happier, especially for the price! Make sure to visit the shops one block west of the Beachfront. You will find a convenience store, an ice cream shop, fresh fish, and a restaurant all within easy walking distance. The beach is fantastic! Try boogie boarding, especially when the surf is a little rough. What a blast. My husband and I are over 50, but we played in the waves like kids. My son (13) and his friend walked down to a place called the Hangout several times to get a snack. You can walk in right off the beach! Also, I loved that the entrance to our condo doesn't require a key...very handy for those with swimsuits w/o pockets.

My only suggestions would be to pick up some drinking water if you have sensitive taste buds, don't leave anything on the beach overnight (I learned that the hard way), and get clear directions for hooking up the DVD player. I like to watch movies but could not figure out the owners' system.

The owners are responsive, fair, and gracious. One of our boys brought a patio chair down to the beach and left it there overnight. Well, the city cleans the beaches at night. Anything left out is destroyed. Cathy (the owner) was utterly gracious. She told me not to worry about it. We would definitely stay here again, if the owners will have us.
