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 Alabama

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!

Great vacation property conveniently located to everything. It has every kitchen item you can imagine including a margarita maker. Great recliners in the living room and cuddly blankets to take off the chill from too much sun.

We absolutely loves our stay here! The condo had plenty of room, right across from the elevator and the balcony is just above the pool. Very short walk to the beach. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at various Gulf Shores/Orange Beach/Fort Morgan rentals over the past 15 years. This one was outstanding! Everything in the unit was perfect - it was clean, everything was functional, fully equipped, and very comfortable during our 5 night stay.

We love the location - Gulf Shores west beach is a little further away from the hustle and bustle but yet still close to all the fun/food/entertainment. We really liked breakfast on the balcony while we watched the dolphins play. It is right on the beach so the walk was one of the shortest we've every had - you can't get much closer.

Can say enough good things about this unit and the owner - very nice to work with!

Thanks - we will be back!

Wonderful!! Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent 5 glorious days at this condo. It was exactly as pictured, clean and comfortable, right on the beach and stocked with everything but food. Shopping, tourist attractions, and restaurants were within a short distance. Elevator right outside the door. Ricky was great to work with and prompt with replies to questions. I will certainly come back when possible.

Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing condo! Everything was just as promised on the website. Thank you so much for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. We had a great time in Gulf Shores! I must confess I'm now addicted to the condo lifestyle! It was so much roomier than a hotel and it was nice being able to cook breakfast and lunch every day. Everything was just as you promised and we enjoyed spending every morning and late evening on the balcony watching the dolphins swim by. Thanks again for letting us spend the week there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We look forward to having you back again soon! This condo wins for being the closest to the beach and with our magnificent expansive Gulf views.
