About Domingo & Marsha Gallardo

For the last 25 years we have vacationed on the Gulf Coast regularly and we are thrilled to now have a home away from home there. Nothing relaxes us more than sitting in the sand and watching the waves lap up on the shore. Our hope is that you, too, will experience a break from your busy life and be rejuvenated.

Domingo & Marsha Gallardo purchased this condo in 2015

Why Domingo & Marsha Gallardo chose Alabama

Fort Morgan is also less congested than Gulf Shores. You can go out for a morning walk and experience just the sun, sea, and your own footprints. The sand is amazingly soft and bright white. The water temperature in the summer is warm and the waves are gentle and safe enough for little ones. Located right next to Kiva Dunes Gulf course. You will drive into a gated complex that is guarded 24 hours.

What makes this condo unique

For less than you would spend at most hotels, you will have not only a kitchen but the amenities are so extensive you have to make time for the beach.

Not completely terrible but could have been better!

  • 3 of 5

Prior to arrival I tried to print a parking ticket at eventbrite.com with no luck finding the "event". Come to find out, The check-in instructions had a typo for the event so it could not be "found". The room was just as pictured. Small and cozy but perfect for my two daughters and I. I read that the king size bed had recently been replaced however my 5y/o and myself slept in the "dip" in the middle of the bed our entire stay. The remote fell off the side of the bed and when i looked under the bed trying to locate it I found the problem with the dip.....the bed frame is broken and folds in the middle when someone gets on the bed. The internet NEVER worked and the tv is very "fuzzy". Luckily, the weather cleared up and we were not stuck in the room. The beach was fantastic and not overcrowded. The pool was right below our room which was nice. This was our first time to stay in this area and found that it was a little to far away from everything for our liking. There is a dollar general right up the road that carries your basic needs, beach needs, and some groceries. Probably will not stay in this area again. With a few minor changes, this would be a great getaway for someone not looking for entertainment away from the beach and pool.

Owner's Response: Sorry but we had no idea the new king sized bed had anything wrong with it, and we haven't had a complaint since, but I will have it checked out and the frame fixed if needed. So sorry about the internet but the tropical storms played havoc with the internet and TV connection but we supply a big box full of DVDs for just such occasions. All that was quickly restored. It is a ways down from Gulf Shores - 12 miles - and I hope travelers realize that. But most love the break away and there is a restaurant at the resort and a convenience store just minutes up the road.

Gorgeous Suite, Wonderful Location, Great Price!

  • 5 of 5

This suite was beautiful and cozy! It has been well maintained and taken care of. I can't believe we got a suite in Gulf Shores, this close to the beach, for such a great price! We are already making plans to stay again!

Wow!!

  • 5 of 5

This adorable and quaint condo was everything I had hoped for and more. The beach is close to the condo and the short path made going back and forth between beach and condo a breeze. The owners were wonderful to work with and very informative. What a perfect place to get away from it all and relax!! I HIGHLY recommend this condo.

Neat and clean private location

  • 4 of 5

Property met the need of my husband and I. Nice distance from town with a beautiful beach! Didn't spend much time in the room as we were exploring! Very neat and clean and tastefully decorated. Owner provided books, movies and board games to entertain. Also provided a wonderful wagon to pull all your stuff onto the beach. In addition had a guest book you could read and get tips on places to visit and where to eat. Overall a great stay just one small issue with bed which seemed to want to sink in the middle with two people. Did not stop us from having fun on a much needed get away. Thank you Marsha for all your thoughtfulness. Will definitely visit again!
