About Paula Gaughan

I have always loved the beach! I will be a phone call away to ensure you have a wonderful vacation on the sugary white sands of the Gulf. I have always wanted to have vacation property on the beach and am excited to be the property owner and manager. I take great care of our vacation home and want to have guests that will enjoy it and take care of it, too!

Paula Gaughan purchased this condo in 2015

Why Paula Gaughan chose Gulf Shores

I have vacationed on the Gulf all of my life and believe our Condo is in a beautiful location and the San Carlos is a beautiful building. Also it has three elevators that are faster than the others that I toured! The quality of the furniture and decorations was greater than the others. Two of the bedrooms have their private full bathroom and the other one has access from the bedroom to the bath and hall. The master bedroom is large and has a double vanity and walk in closet, as well as a large bathroom with a double sink vanity, tile shower and tub with jets.

What makes this condo unique

Since this condo is on the 12th floor, it has the best view of the Gulf of all the ones I was shown. Great views from the Living room, Dining room, kitchen, and Master bedroom. The balcony was also larger than most of the condos I visited which was very important to me. It is also within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The A/C has an air cleaning system for people with allergies!

Beautiful place right on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

This 3 bedroom 3 bath condo was perfect for our stay in Gulf Shores! There was plenty of space for our family (my husband and I, my parents, and daughter)! The location right on the Gulf was perfect. You stepped out from the condo complex and were right on the white sandy beach. We saw dolphins every day. And enjoyed sitting on the balcony overlooking the sand & Gulf soaking in the afternoon sun! Also, it was only a half mile from the Hangout, which is where the Big Beach Marathon started and the reason for our vacation to Gulf Shores. Also, nearby were many other great restaurants and attractions. We walked to the Zoo, only about a mile away and drove down the coast to Fort Morgan (about 20 miles). I would highly recommend this place and definitely stay here again if we return to Gulf Shores!

Loved staying in this condo! Kitchen is well stocked to cook anything you need and lots of space. Beds are comfortable and a bath for each bedroom is a plus. Huge deck with table and chairs for outdoor dining and dolphin watch. Location is perfect. You can walk to many restaurants. shops and bars. Will definitely stay here again and recommend this unit. Paula is responsive to all inquiries and a pleasure to work with.

Lovely condo! Great location and view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo met our expectations! We've vacationed in Gulf Shores many times and haven't rented a bad condo yet. The location to everything was great. We were there the week of August 5, 2017 and had no trouble finding parking at the condo. The wait for the elevators was minimal. The condo itself was nice and the view from the balcony was excellent!!
