Awesome location with spectacular view! Very relaxing, peaceful, quiet. Access to many activities!

  • 5 of 5

Compass Point has more to offer than any location around! It is located on a piece of property that jutts out into the lagoon like a "1/2 private island!" that provides spectacular views of the Gulf, the Pass-Thru/Bridge and the Lagoon with gorgeous sunsets, starry skies and night lights reflecting on those bodies of water. Very peaceful, quiet, relaxing and tranquil but at the same time - a hubbub of activities: boating, wave running, jet-skiing, kayaking, fishing, wind-sailing, crabbing, indoor and outdoor swimming, surfing, boogie-boarding, beach walking and beach-play in the sticky sand gulf beaches or in soft sand lagoon beaches, sunbathing, biking paths, walking trails, picnicking, outdoor grilling, bird-watching, watching for surfacing fish, tracking helicopters and aircraft, flying kites and maybe even some tree climbing or just reclining in a comfortable beach chair or chaise lounge, sipping on your favorite beverage. Ahhh!! The 703 unit has recently been upgraded with beautiful hard-wood floors in the living area and very nice ceramic tile flooring in the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms. The spacious deck was our favorite location with table for four and several very comfortable fabric chaise lounges. The kitchen and bathrooms have pretty granite countertops. You can almost drive right up to the elevator with loading carts available and just a few steps to walk around to the condo. From our view on the balcony, we were mesmerized by the continual movement of activities in the air, on the water, on the dock and boardwalk, through the pass, across to the north and south sides of the lagoon. There was always something to watch. We felt socially connected to all fun around us but at the same time, we felt cozy and private in our secluded condo decorated with oversized weather-worn look, distressed furniture, humorous and uplifting wall-art messages, comfortable leather seating, fresh linens and bedding, thoughtful complimentary toiletries, accessories, and supplies.Garry has been great! He guided us through each step of the process: gathering information, making our rental selection, handling the reservation, keeping in touch throughout the logistics, to-do list, entering, settling in, technology connections and exiting the property. We thoroughly enjoyed our 39th Wedding Anniversary Vacation at 703 Compass Point. It was everything we wanted: relaxing, comfortable and great sunset views - with many more surprises throughout our stay!

Hidden Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (two teenagers) spent our long Memorial Day weekend at this condo. We only live 45 minutes away from Gulf Shores, but it's always nice to get away for a few days. We've stayed at many different places in the area, and this was our favorite so far. I love that it's not overcrowded and we never had an issue finding "our spot" at the pool. My son fished the entire time we were there, literally! The unit itself was comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The owner was very easy to work with and communicated everything we needed to know prior to arrival. We will definitely be back!

GREAT Stay! GREAT View!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at this condo in August and was so happy we did! The view off the back is priceless!! The place was neat and comfortably decorated, the kitchen had everything we could possibly need & the bed was comfy! Gary was SUPER friendly, and easy to work with! DO yourself a favor and stay in this great condo!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the condo with our teenagers. The view from the unit was amazing! The unit itself is very comfortable and well maintained. The outdoor pool was so nice, and the indoor pool is one of the best we have had! We love to grill and fish and this unit provided great access to both! The walk to the beach was not far, but public parking made driving convenient too! We also rented kayaks and spent the day in Little Lagoon, it was great! The grounds were very pretty and well maintained! There are restaurants close! Our stay was very relaxing! Working with the owner was a pleasure!

Great Views! Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying at this condo at Compass Pointe! The view from the balcony was amazing and the condo was clean and nicely appointed. At the time we booked, there were no reviews posted and I was a little nervous about booking it but I'm so glad we took a chance on it. The owner, Garry, was very friendly, efficient and responsive and it's obvious that he wants this to be a comfortable destination for vacationers. (My only recommendation is that he needs to add a blender in the kitchen! :)) The pool at Compass Point was great and my 3 year old son couldn't get enough of the 'little beach' there. It's perfect for small children and the real beach was just a short walk away. My favorite part of the trip was relaxing in the amazing zero gravity chairs on the front balcony and enjoying the views below which were gorgeous both day and night. If you are planning a trip to Gulf Shores, I certainly recommend renting this condo.
