About Heidi & Rob Purdy

We love the beach and we really love the Ft Morgan

Peninsula. We've been retired for several years and we always want to go to the beach when time allows. Our home is Louisville, Ky. This is our first time to rent our condo ourselves . Previously was with a management company for several years but we are looking forward to taking care of our guests the way they want to be taken care of. We hope our little TreeHouse will be your favorite vacation spot!

Be sure to tell us what we can do better or some amenity we have maybe overlooked.

Heidi & Rob Purdy purchased this condo in 2005

Why Heidi & Rob Purdy chose Gulf Shores

The view is unbelievable and the people that come here are wonderful-so friendly. Makes a great place to stay during the winter months - lots of activities for snowbirds. Indoor saltwater pool ...Temp 85 ! Natural setting. Due south from our home in Kentucky. Convenient beaching. Love to sit on our balcony and watch as a storm rolls in...

or watch the sun come up. Beautiful view ! Beautiful sunrises!

What makes this condo unique

With all the pools to choose from you can swim in a different pool every day! Great place to play tennis.

Like it because it's out of the high traffic area in summer. Great beach - beautiful white sand

Beach umbrella rentals . And the huge fort at the end is awesome! Plan on spending a couple hours there. Catch the Ferry to Mobile there and also at end is a fishing pier and walking trails. Visit The Wharf with the giant Ferris wheel in Orange Beach!

Perfect for a small family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here! It was the perfect size for us. Being able to walk right to the beach was great, and it was not overly crowded. Our girls LOVED hunting for sand crabs and having the equipment provided was nice. We can’t wait to come back!

Family of 4 first time beach goers here!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The condo was lovely and quaint. Everything we needed was in the room for us and there is lots of space surprisingly to put all of our stuff in! The owners fridge and stove are updated! Everyone was very friendly. We liked that it was kid friendly, the view from the balcony was amazing, you are on the top floor and it is quite up there which is awesome, the beach is only for people staying at the resort, the pool stays open late and they have grills close by too. There wasn’t ANY tourist stuff where this condo is, which was fine with us. If you like that stort of stuff it’s all on the main drag about 20 minutes away. We enjoyed The Track, the zoo, Coastal restaurant, Matt’s ice cream, and Sassy Bass crazy donuts while we were out. If you can avoid it stay away from Walmart. We went on a Sunday night around 9 and it was CRAZY packed and they had nothing -lesson learned. Heidi was awesome as well! She answered all my questions and concerns even late at night!! The only thing that we didn’t like was that we couldn’t get the ceiling fan to work and the air conditioning wasn’t as cool as we’d like it :) It didn’t bother us too much because we decided to stay an extra day!!! We probably won’t be renting this specific room again ONLY because our kids will be older and will need more privacy. If my husband and I can go without the kids we will though! I am so thankful to have gotten a chance to experience it from a caring owner!!! Thank you so much for letting us stay!

Owner's Response: Dana , An AMAXING review! Thank you so much. Thin k you thought of everything you could review. I am sorry about the AC but I thought when the man came to service it ...that it would be to your satisfaction. If you could..would you please either text mor thaemail me if the AC wasany better after tey left. I don’t want them to get away with less than perfect, if possible. That’s why we use them because we think they’re reliable. We as Owners only know how well they do because of Guests like you who keep us informed.

Perfect with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. It was me, my husband and 2 small kids (under 6). It was perfect for us. Our kids don't like sleeping alone while on vacation so this condo was exactly what we needed. We had enough room and didn't feel over crowded. They have several kitchen appliances and we cooked each night we were there with no problems. Although I wish there were elevators closer to the this condo, the views with the small patio was great. The resort itself was nice, right on the beach with a boardwalk leading to the beach, several swimming pools, and the downstairs showers made it convenient not tracking too much sand back to the condo. Thank you!!

Condo on the beach

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, you have a nice little condo. My only issue is that we have never stayed at a condo before and didn't realize for 3 1/2 days and 4 people there would only be one roll of toilet paper. Also they did not leave any dishwasher soap, the instructions said one would be available. Also the boogie boards were missing. We looked and the spot with the sign in the closet had none. The pull out coach was very uncomfortable maybe invest in a better mattress. Overall we made do and had a nice time. The electricity did go out for @6hrs and we had no flashlight. Thank you for allowing us to use your condo. Again we have never stayed in a condo so next time I will pack extra toilet paper and a flashlight.
