Reviewer Comments:

Parking is terrible. Rules for compact cars in the middle lanes is not enforced. Husband and I had to move our vehicles back and forth in order to park depending on which one of us could fit where. People take two spots to ensure they have at least one...horrible. Everything in condo worked. Clean enough, although I bleached the tub and shower because it did not look clean. Would possibly rent this one again...maybe. Great location. Have to sacrifice the parking though.

Reviewer Comments:

Master bed was very uncomfortable and very old. Could use some detail cleaning, under furniture, vents, floors could use more than a quick scrub. Loved working with Candace at Anchor, would use this Co again,

SHAME ON YOU!

#anchorvacationrentals

NEVER AGAIN. I booked a family vacation through Anchor Vacations in #gulfshores. I booked a 3 bedroom in #Castaways. We walked in and the unit stunk. (3A) It was FILTHY. Mold in the shower & toilet. Stains on the bed sheets. 2 out of 3 tvs would not work. The main problem it was HOT. 80 degrees to be exact. I assumed it was because the prior tenants turned the air up when checkin out. I turned the air down and thought it would eventually cool off. Nope. They sent a technician around 8pm and finally about 10pm he said it was not fixable. It was now 82 degrees. I was told my options were a house (NOT on the beach) or a two bedroom condo. I had to drive to pick up the new keys. We loaded up and went to the new TWO bedroom condo. Unloaded got to the new condo and guess what...THERE WAS NO KEY HOLE. I called and we were at Crystal Shores, and not Crystal shores west. 😡 Keep in mind I have a 3 year old and a 4 month old. It's now midnight. We load BACK up. The four month old has been screaming for 2 hours because she is HOT and beyond exhausted. Got in the new TWO bedroom unit and finally to sleep at 2am. With My 70 year old father sleeping on the couch.

The most horrendous part of this review is what happens now. I would expect to be refunded AT LEAST my first nights stay. I can't even get the manager/owner Donna to call me back. I've called multiple times at this point. Absolutely horrendous customer service. I've been told she can't make a decision on what to do. Ridiculous. Never again. Not being refunded anything and having to downsize from a 3 bedroom to a two bedroom is unbelievable.
