About Ricky Beale

Hi! I'm Ricky Beale (owner) here at the beach with my grand-daughters. We live in the midwest but we love the beach...especially Gulf Shores and our condo at Surfside Shores. We have the most beautiful soft sugary white sand beach and a great place to find seashells. The beach is a little different each day but we always find shells and enjoy the water. In the summer the Gulf is warm like bath water and in the winter it is cool but you can still get your feet wet. This is our little piece of paradise and we'd love to have you visit as our guests here when we can't be here.

Ricky Beale purchased this condo in 2005

Why Ricky Beale chose Gulf Shores

We purchased this condo here at Surfside Shores because we already had two other units in this complex and we loved this complex so much we wanted one more. Now our whole family can vacation here 'together' but each in a different condo unit. We love the wide balcony for eating our meals and sunning and we like that you will always see the beach the first thing when you wake up in your bed. It's super convenient to get to the beach and with the elevator right across from our unit so we don't have to carry our things very far at all.

What makes this condo unique

When we stay in our condo we enjoy watching the dolphins swim past every morning and afternoon. We enjoy waking up in bed and seeing the beach as well as sleeping with the French doors open and hearing the waves hit the shore and lull us to sleep every night. The heated pool is great for the days that are a little there is a heat pump that will kick in if the temp drops a little low at night. We're in a 'quiet' part of the beach but close to shops and restaurants so we can make the best use of our vacation time while we're at the beach. If we need something we forgot, Pier 33 is within walking distance, and if we work up an appetite we can always walk to Bahama Bob's for a burger.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The view from the balcony was georgeous! Loved eating all our meals on the roomy balcony. You can talk to your kids in the pool (and watch them) from the balcony. The beach is truly just a few steps away. The condo was very nicely furnished, with lots of books to read. This was definitely one of our favorite places to stay!

Condo was exactly as described. Kitchen had everything you needed. It was Terrific! Awesome Bed, View, Location, and Access. Thank You Ricky! Ricky was always just a msg away and responded within the hour. Parking was never an issue. The AC in this condo is by far the Best AC I have ever experienced in a condo! Very short walk to the beach. On top of that, the beach in front of this building is wide open. If you walk 40 yards to the right or left then the beach is super crowded 3 rows deep. It's as if you have your very own private beach. In the future we will definitely consider renting Ricky's unit again!! It's hard to take a chance on renting another unit when you stay in one like Ricky's.

Thanks again Ricky!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and we couldn't agree with you more. We have the BEST spot on the beach and more space on the beach per person than most anywhere in Gulf Shores. Hope you and your family will return soon and send all your friends our way as well.

small but roomy

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time here. The 2 bedroom unit was small but the mirrors made it feel roomy. The building is smaller than most of the condo buildings so there was room on the beach and did not feel so crowded as other areas. It's definitely family friendly. We are already planning our next visit!
