Gulfside Townhomes has a beautifully landscaped courtyard in the middle of this horseshoe shaped complex with a large grassy area for the kids and one of the biggest beach side pools around. The pool is in the center of the complex and perfect for when it is windy and cooler on the beach.

Gulfside is a low density complex with 250 feet of beachfront, with no high rises on either side so you will have plenty of space on the beach. Located in the heart of Gulf Shores within walking distance to The Hangout, Bahama Bobs, and several other great restaurants, grocery/convenient stores and souvenir shops.

Other nearby family-fun centers include a water park (Waterville) and amusement Park (The Track), a zoo, miniature golf, and go-kart tracks. The Tanger Outlet Mall is about a 15-20 minute drive, and there are numerous fishing charters, tennis facilities and world-class golf courses nearby. The Wharf, located in nearby Orange Beach has many shops, restaurants, and an ampi-theater.

Short day trips include, Ft. Morgan where you can take the ferry across Mobile Bay to visit the Dauphin Island Estuarium Sea Lab and the Bird Sanctuary. Alligator Alley in Summerdale is a favorite for kids & adults alike. The USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile and The Naval Aviation Museum (home of the world famous Blue Angels) in Pensacola are very interesting and educational for all ages.

Alabama's finest beach town has been a hidden secret for families to gather for many years, where you can experience all types of entertainment, unique shopping, delicious dining, golf, boating, biking and all sorts of water activities. Our beautiful stretch of the beach is truly unbeatable. The white sands and clear blue water are welcoming year round.

About Diane Honegger

Mike and I (Diane) were married in 1976 and have two children and 5 grandchildren. We have been coming to Gulf Shores for over 30 years. My husband is an attorney in Illinois and I have been one of his paralegals since 1993. He loves horses and is a partner with my sister in a breeding farm. I am one of 11 children and love coming to the beach. My mom, two sisters and one brother all have condos within walking distance of Gulfside Townhomes.

Diane Honegger purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Diane Honegger chose Alabama

We chose Gulf Shores because it has the most beautiful sugar white sand and clear blue water that changes daily from very calm to huge waves. We like that we can drive in one day from Illinois and come down any time of the year to enjoy the beautiful weather. We love that it is safe, family friendly, with a relaxed atmosphere. Gulf Shores has great, reasonably priced restaurants, plenty of shopping, a wonderful recreation center, challenging golf courses, amazing fishing and entertainment for all ages within walking distance or a short drive.

What makes this townhome unique

We love the beach house feel of our townhome. The location is perfect; beach side, within walking distance of the festivals, souvenir shops, restaurants and groceries. We also enjoy the community feel of a small complex with the pool and grassy courtyard in the center of the horseshoe shape. You can watch kids play on the beach, in the pool and in the courtyard from your balcony. Inside, the privacy curtain separates Livingroom, with its comfortable queen sofa/sleeper turning it into a 4th bedroom with its own private balcony.

Beach Views from Every Window, Roomy, Free use of boogie boards and Bikes, Beach and Pool so amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 of us sharing this spacious condo and it did not feel crowded. This townhouse is equipped with everything needed for an excellent vacation on the beach. Each of the 3 bedrooms has it's own bathroom with an extra half bath on the main floor. The hide-a-bed couch is more comfortable than our bed at home and the privacy curtain makes the living room a 4th bedroom. The owner (Diane) has bikes, boogie boards, beach toys, chairs and umbrellas for renters use. The condo is also set up for children and babies. There is a basket of toys under the bed in the second bedroom. The children LOVED finding that surprise. This condo also has a portacrib and highchair. The large well built table easily fit our entire group of 9 for breakfast in the morning and games at night. The proximity to the pool and beach is amazing. The private balcony off the master suite was well used on this trip. My husband enjoyed sitting out there reading after dinner. The ocean view off both balconies are wonderful. We could watch our son-in-law fish in the gulf from the balcony. This vacation was the most relaxed and comfortable we have ever taken in Gulf Shores, AL and we WILL be back. A special thanks to Diane our host for sharing her amazing home away from home.

We were disappointed in the size of the condo which advertised would sleep 12

  • 3 of 5

The condo was clean and well stocked. However, the pictures did not indicate the size of the spaces and we were sure surprised to find a ladder to the attic. It will sleep twelve technically but not comfortably. There are beach views but from tiny porches.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you felt our town home was smaller than expected, but it is accurately advertised as 1,375 square feet. The attic bunk room is designed for kids and they love the ladder/stair entrance to their own private space. The great location, just steps from the beach, no elevators to wait on and all the extras provided make up for smaller room sizes. Both balconies are private and have seating for 4 people on each with wonderful views of the gulf, pool and courtyard.

Great location, right on the beach, well stocked kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family vacation. We originally booked it thinking we could have as many as 12, however we ended up with only 8. It was the perfect space for 8, but would definitely have been crowded with 12. The upstairs loft area was perfect for the kids and they loved having their own space. The kitchen is stocked with every appliance you could need during your trip. I don't know that we could have been closer to the beach! The unit has several beach towels and lots of beach chairs, umbrella, sand toys, etc. which made packing much easier. Diane was wonderful about checking in to make sure that everything met our expectations! Great experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! You certainly make a good point about being a little cozy for 13 people. However, with 3 floors, 3 1/2 baths and 4 Smart TVs my family of 12 didn't find it to be a problem. Of course we spent most of our time outside enjoying the beach, pool, bikes and courtyard. :)
