This graciously appointed unit affords spectacular direct Gulf views. The kitchen cabinetry is accented with fine granite countertops. The foyer, kitchen, bathrooms, breakfast area, and laundry room are tiled.

About Lee and Paige Horn

Our family lives in Nashville, Tennessee. Our favorite place to spend our leasure time is along the coast - nothing is more relaxing to us.

Lee and Paige Horn purchased this condo in 2006

Why Lee and Paige Horn chose Alabama

We purchased our unit at Crystal Shores West when it was new, and we like all of the amenities that it has to offer. Furthermore, we like the convenience to many area fabulous restaurants and unique shops in the area. West Beach is not as conjested as other new complexes in Gulf Shores.

What makes this condo unique

Of course, we like the decor, because we selected it (with the help of an interior designer)! The custom drapes and spreads, as well as the plush linens make us feel at home rather than merely staying in a rental.

Homey and Comfortable Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much. Everything we needed was there. I loved the thoughtful touches like books to read, and the information on restaurants and things to do I found in a kitchen drawer. The kitchen was nicely stocked and included most of the small appliances found in the average home. The beds were very comfortable and I loved the big fluffy pillows. The condo was spotlessly clean and decorated much nicer than ones I've rented in the past. Very pleasant and relaxing. We would definitely return again!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Anytime a condo is a first time rental, I am a little anxious about the accommodations. I rented this condo for a girl's getaway and we were all impressed with the tasteful decorating, cleanliness, and absolutely no "wear and tear" of the furnishings. The owner was always prompt to answer any questions we had. It is our new favorite place to stay in Gulf Shores. We will be back.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us! The accommodations were wonderful - clean, comfortable and so nicely decorated! We especially enjoyed the large kitchen and cooked several meals during our stay. Crystal Shores West is a fabulous place: quiet, so convenient to everything, and so close to the beach! It is my favorite place to stay in Gulf Shores. Thank you again for sharing your unit, we had a blast!!

Exceptional property. As a former resident of Gulf Shores and now a "Tourist" in October this has got to be the most tastefully decorated condo my family has ever stayed in. We've been in a lot of condos in Gulf Shores and as a former resident I felt I was back home again. We've traveled the Caribbean many time and I can actually say it was like the Islands. For you people that has never been to Gulf Shores or haven't stayed at Crystal Shores West, this property is a great property. Location is everything when traveling as a family and this is away, but within minutes of anything you might want to experience. No crowds or traffic to deal as in Panama City. I just hope after this review the owner doesn't raise his rent or somebody beats us to stay another week for Shrimp Festival in Oct.
