About Mary Lou Hale

This is our second condo in this building, the Avalon. The other 2 condos we have in the same building are 3 bd 3.5 baths. If you are meeting another family or group we can put you close together!!

We live in Nashville, Tn. We vacationed in Gulf Shores for 10 years as our 3 boys grew up. Then, we bought the first condo 2009, and this condo 2016, and the 3rd in 2017. We love the Beach Club Resort and visit there ourselves as often as we can.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Angela · Michigan, United States

April 2017

My husband and I and our 3 kids (ages: 3,4,9) spent a week at Jeff and Mary Lou's condo. It was hands down our favorite family trip we've taken so far. The condo was perfect - it is very well equipped. The view is absolutely beautiful and everyone was so friendly. The resort is gorgeous and lots to offer - We took several walks to the park, ice cream shop and Restaurants located right inside the resort. The pool is great and very kid friendly. We look forward to staying again! Take care! Nick and Angela

Condo was very nice and clean

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very nice and clean, located directly over the pool and beautiful view of the beach and ocean. I would definitely rent again. The only issue was the first night the refrigerator was on the warm side,(setting was on low) we placed our milk in freezer the first night but after about 24 hrs the refrigerator cooled down. Maybe it hadn't been used for awhile, but I still give it 5 stars.... Thanks Mrs Hale!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. Everyone loves this beautiful condo and it's view, so it always books up in peak season. Regarding the refrigerator issue, it works great, new model, stainless. What happens is, when you arrive, the refrigerator is empty, then filled with items from a vehicle. Sometimes it does take 24 hours to get everything just right. And maintenance says the worst thing is when guests turn the cooling mechanism to high. It can take longer, best to leave it at the regular setting, not low or high. Come enjoy a relaxing time here!

Very nice condo and owner was easy to work with!

  • 5 of 5

Condo had everything we needed, including ample towels and linens. The cleaning crew the owner uses could use a little more attention to detail. Unit was clean except for minor issues I addressed with the owner after we were settled in the unit.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the 5 star review. We appreciate your help in addressing those small details with housekeeping. That only makes our condo unit better! Thanks for being great renters and taking great care of it while visiting and soaking up some sun, making great memories on your beach vacation! And on another note, this condo is being renovated to replace all flooring to new tile August 2017, for an even fresher look.

We had a wonderful stay! The condo location is perfect on the fifth floor, overlooking the pool and the beach. There are multiple pools at this resort but this condo overlooks the best and biggest pool out of all of them. The pool area also has a small baby pool which was nice for out littlest one. The resort has a nice bar/grill for food as well as food trucks and kid entertainment in the evening for something different without having to drive into town. The great thing about being slightly away from the main gulf shores area is that the beach is much less crowded which was perfect for us. The condo in general was exceptionally clean and the owner (Mary Lou) was incredibly friendly and very helpful. You can't go wrong in any way renting this condo!!

Loved it!

Really enjoyed our time there, and especially loved having a code instead of keeping up with a key to get in the door. 😃

We stayed in this condo for 4 days and had an excellent stay. Upon arrival it was extremely clean and was well stocked with everything you need in the kitchen utensil wise. Amazing view directly overlooks the pool and out onto the ocean.
