About Claire

After a delightful family vacation on the beaches of the gulf coast we dreamed of one day owning our own beach condo where my husband can surf fish and I can lounge on the beautiful white sands enjoying a good book and waiting to photograph his catch. We decided on Gulf Shores because of it's natural beauty, friendly residents and good food and Gulf Shores Plantation; in particular, because it is far enough from the main drag to have a relaxed environment and close enough to jump in and take advantage of all of the excitement this community has to offer. Take an easy stroll to the beach on the boardwalks while enjoying the well kept landscaping or relax at one of the pools either indoors or out. Have cocktails in the breeze on the balcony at sunset or partake in one of the many activities at your fingertips. Tennis courts, basketball, horseshoes and a jacuzzi are just some of your options all within a beautiful family friendly resort with security and a guarded entrance. Relax on the private beach or enjoy a jet ski, banana boat ride, parasailing rental, or the World Class Kiva Dunes Golf Course just minutes away. Outlet shopping and many dinning options are available near by or stay in and enjoy the coziness of the condo and the comfort of having your own kitchen which is well appointed with a Margarita machine and all of the utensils necessary for your home crafted meals. Your vacation can be as laid back and relaxed or as active as you please. Contact me with any questions, I look forward to assisting you with your stay.

                                                                      Lisa M.

                                                                      We loved staying at this condo. It was our first time at Fort Morgan. If you are looking for an area to relax and enjoy some beach time, this is the place. The condo had all the amenities you need for a beach trip. Beds were so comfortable! Only down side was no washer and dryer (we never used it, but there are some down the hall). We will defiently be back! Thank you for a great stay!

                                                                      The property was clean and within feet from the beach!

                                                                      lekisha c.

                                                                      Our family enjoyed our stay at this property. It was true to its picture...well maintained and organized. We felt added security because of the 24 hour guarded gate. We loved the short walk to the beach and the added amementies at the resort such as indoor and outdoor pools, sauna etc. The living space was cozy and quaint. Above all, Claire was very responsive to our needs. We would definitely recommend this property to couples and families.

                                                                      Wonderful stay!!!

                                                                      The Watkins

                                                                      The air conditioner in this unit is brand new, but even with new equipment we found that things can still break. Mr. Brian was so patient and understanding. I was very stressed about this situation with it being a weekend, but fortunately we were able to have the air conditioner fixed and running within a few hours. I really appreciated your cooperation! I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and it was a pleasure to have you. Please come back and visit our beautiful beaches again real soon.

                                                                      Great water heater, Clean, Give it a try, you will like it!

                                                                      BRIAN G.Combine, TX

                                                                      The condo was nice & cool when we arrived! There are 4 chairs at the dining table (I remember seeing one picture showing 3 chairs). Everything was clean minus some sandy feeling on the floor, but I am sure it is hard to clean since it is at the beach. There's a master bedroom which includes the bathroom. The other bedroom has the bathroom just about 5 feet away & the nice thing there is another door there at the start of the hallway so it is as if there are 2 master bedrooms . (the guest room--you can actually hear the A/C running outside. It's similar to the sound of a train on the track or a car with loud music by you so if it gets noisy...just warm up the A/C, which I'm guessing is on the roof and you will not hear the sound).

                                                                      The laundry room, also located at the end of the hallway on the 3rd floor, requires credit card (not coins). You can either use your credit card or buy a gift Visa card at the local Dollar General store to use on the machines--it's $2 wash & $2 to dry a load. FYI--agitator in Maytag Washing machine. Use the dryer by the door entrance, it will dry with only $2 for a family of 4 load.

                                                                      We've been to these beach condos before & THIS CONDO is UPDATED---the view is not straight on the beach but you can always just go to the beach because that's the point of the vacation. :) It's more parking lot view with the sand dunes & then the beach to your right.

                                                                      The hallways to the condo are clean & I feel safe to walk to the laundry room and beach. There are plenty of families there with kids if you travel during school vacation times.

                                                                      Claire's directions for the condo were excellent & I just might want to stay in there again even though I like trying out different condos. Everything was very clean!

                                                                      The pull-out sofa was a little hard on my back- it sinks in, but my child thought it was fine and loved the idea of the 'tv' right there. :) I do not think an adult would be comfortable on the pull-out sofa though but great for a kid. ha!

                                                                      The best thing was we did NOT run out of hot water unlike the other condos in this area. I believe this was a 40 gallon hot water heater & it looked to be NEW. We typically have to space out our times showers at the other condos because of their old or small water heaters ,good shower heads here. The closet to your right as you enter the condo is PERFECT to store your little surf boards & beach items. The bench by the door is handy, because we take our shoes off there. :)
