About Larry and Jane Sewell

We reside in Chattanooga, TN and enjoy spending our free time in Gulf Shores. We purchased this unit in November 2015. A complete remodel was done inside. We hope your family will enjoy our vacation home as much as we do.

Larry and Jane Sewell purchased this condo in 2015

Why Larry and Jane Sewell chose Gulf Shores

We choose Sea Oats in Gulf Shores because of its amenities and family friendly atmosphere. The condo is on 8 acres which gives plenty of space for walking and exploring. The beach access is a short walk directly in front of the condo. The two lane road has very little traffic. The walk from the condo to the beach is approximately 3/4 the length of a football field. The lagoon is to the back of the property with covered docks where you can fish, walk your pet, or access the boat launch. Sea Oats is a very family oriented place with the beach and lagoon access. We feel your family will enjoy it as much as ours.

What makes this condo unique

This property is family friendly with easy beach access with 2 olympic size pools and 2 kiddie pools to enjoy with your friends and family. There is a boat ramp, 2 fishing piers, dozens of boat slips, covered BBQ area and 8 acres to roam around.

This condo is so cute.

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed the condo and the grounds.

The pool is front of the condo was being repaired but we used the other pool. Well let's put it this way. We sat by the pool a couple times. Our weather was cool most of the time so no need for a pool. The balcony is in a good position for when the sun does come out. I would say the sun is on the balcony until three thirty (winter time).

Jane was quick to respond to any questions. Decided to stay a extra day and was very accommodating on how we were going to pay for it.

The complex is kind of hard to find at night so we just remembered that once you go over the bridge, look for the taller condo complex that is usually lit up. Our complex was the next driveway. Also make sure you go in the red doors to get to the condo.

As other people have said, this place is equipped with everything you would need. My husband was surprised that there was even a screw driver here.

The beach walk is directly across the complex. Just follow the opening by the outdoor shower by the road and cross the road and you are there.

This area was quiet during spring break. Closer to 59 you hear more of the action.

Nice fishing pier and picnic area behind the condo.

Our dog liked that you could go from the livingroom and out on the patio and into the master bedroom. Could go to second bedroom also but we didn't use that room so the chairs were in front of it.

I would stay here again.

Description of the property is dead on.

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely remodeled condo with plenty of room and fully stocked....much more so than most of the places we have rented over the years. Only issue we had was the newer chest of drawers in the master bedroom had a distinct odor to it, which was easily rectified by throwing a blanket over the top of it.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Sea Oats before and knew the complex well. Mermaid Cove blew us away. It is supplied with everything you could ever need! I am talking about a cooler, beach bags, every kitchen utensil and item you could imagine. Jane was wonderful! We happened to be there during tropical storm Cindy and she made sure to check on us. We can't wait to go back. We were very impressed!

Our first trip to the Gulf, and was pleasantly surprised!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores, and besides an awesome beach, the Condo, at Sea Oats Cove ,we stayed in was wonderful!! We were thrilled with Mermaid Cove ! It was decorated so bright and beachy! Very confortable with everything we could ask for! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for cooking! All updated items that were new! The furniture was very comfortable , and clean!

We also loved the fact we could view the large pools from our balcony, and. had a lagoon in the back, in which some chose to fish !

We both would highly recommend staying at Mermaid Cove, with that comfortable " Home away from home feeling"

Thank you , Larry and Jane Sewell, for a most memorable and enjoyable few days- stress free!
