Reviewer Comments:

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Castawys 3A. The location was perfect -- central to all the amenities Gulf Shores has to offer. The unit was very clean and spacious, with a great view of the beach and gulf. From our unit we could see the sunrise and aspects of the sunset. The elevator was questionable, but held up during the month we were there. The wi-fi was spotty, but we were told that the system is going to be replaced this spring. We have worked with Anchor Vacations for several years now and find them very pleasant and professional. We enjoyed birding and hiking in Bon Secur Wildlife Refuge and other natural areas, attending lectures at many sites throughout the area, and of course dining at the myriad of restaurants Gulf Shores has to offer.

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoy going to Castaways due to we have friends that own a condo here and we vacation together. Pros: Overall the condo was in good working condition and clean. Con: This decor is very dated (like going back to 1980 dated). The beds need to be upgraded. The TVs need to be upgraded. 3 of the 4 TVs were tube TVs. Some of the appliances need to be upgraded. If the condo owner spend around $3000 in these improvements, I would have no complaints.

We chose the same condo two years in a row. That condo is 3A. It is very well appointed and when the doors are shut you cannot hear the ocean at all. When the doors are open not only is the view spectacular but the sound is just what you would imagine it would be. More than likely the next time we come to Gulf Shores we will stay there again! Thanks Anchor Vacation Rentals!

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.

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,
