About Lance & Courtney Steffek

We live in Gulf Shores and love the area. We have 4 children; Emma, Lachlan, Lennox, and Piper that love the beach and pools. We are not far away and enjoy staying at Caribbean when other families are not enjoying it. It has been such a joy owning this unit and being able to share it with other families throughout the year. And it has been a fun journey renovating; making it a truly luxurious, high-end destination.

Lance & Courtney Steffek purchased this condo in 2015

Why Lance & Courtney Steffek chose Alabama

We like the low density of only 32 units but all the amenities of a larger complex. Also the 9' ceilings which give it a larger feel than many of the other condos in the area.

What makes this condo unique

Low density with a salt water indoor pool, outdoor pool, fitness center, grill area, , and unobstructed western views down the beach.


Excellent! 4.7/5 -

We were very happy to find a condo where we could take our pups. The condo was nicely decorated and comfortable and was very well equipped for our stay. The weather was beautiful and the water was crystal clear. We couldn't have asked for more.

Great Get-away

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at the Caribbean at Gulf Shores, AL!! The condo was clean, comfy beds, great view, and pet-friendly. The elevator was VERY slow and at times it was easier to use the stairs (going down).

Stayed in this condo for a week. Found it clean and comfortable, but found when we departed some of our clothes were left in the closet. Emailed the owner and was told clothes would be shipped. Part if them were, but part of them stayed behind. I have e-mailed the owner twice with no response.Who wants to stay in a place with thieves lurking around. And the condo wasn't rented after we left. Doesn't look good on this side of the fence. Will never go back or recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you feel this way. We have responded to every request and sent the items that were left in the unit. Below is your last response from when we responded to you. I believe all of our past reviews speak volumes of the care and service we provide for all our guests. I also hope any future guests will read your email below to help give some perspective on the situation. We strive to give every one a 5 star experience and will continue to work towards that. From: <Guest>October 4, 2016 at 7:10:06 AM CDT To: Courtney Steffek <_________> Subject: Re: Caribbean 403 Who we gonna call!!!!!!!!!!GHOSTBUSTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!LMAO AND SMH at the same time. Hope somebody enjoys the hell out of the tops. Owner> wrote: After further investigation and speaking with everyone involved, our cleaner only discovered the 4 shirts that have been sent back to you. She had turned in everything she found Saturday evening, before your email, to our head of housekeeping. We are sorry you cannot locate your other items but we have no reason to believe anyone in our staff had anything to do with the missing items. We have had our housekeeper cleaning for us for 5 years in our properties and our home and not once have we ever had any complaints or items go missing. Again, we are sorry you cannot locate your items but we are confident our housekeeper did not take your items.

The condo was very clean. It was also pet friendly, which was a huge perk to me. The owners made the process of renting very easy. Definitely will go back.
