About Barry Morehead
We're the Morehead's and we live in West Texas. We grew up in the deep south and lived in Birmingham, AL for most of our lives. Even though we don't live in AL anymore and we didn't all grow up there, if anyone asks where where from, we proudly tell them that we're from Sweet Home Alabama.
Barry Morehead purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Barry Morehead chose Gulf Shores
We LOVE Gulf Shores. We bought our beachfront condo so we would always have an Alabama place to enjoy with family and friends. We enjoy sitting on the balcony having morning coffee or relaxing in the living room with the doors open listening to waves rolling in after a day on the beach. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
What makes this Condo unique
Beach front and located in the heart of Gulf Shores.

We had a great time. Visited Shrimp Festival weekend.
We loved the location. Easy walking to a lot of attractions but far enough away to have peace and quiet. Not a huge complex so it was very quiet at night. Beds are very comfortable. We will stay here again. Barry was very easy to get in touch with for questions that we had during our stay.
The actual unit itself was fine with the exception of a few "discrepancies" but the owner handled that immediately! The parking is not the greatest but we managed.
We left Monday night, so we lost that night but thought it was the best idea given the fact that the hurricane was coming. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for your feedback! It helps us to be better hosts when we hear from our guests. I regret that you were unable to give us an excellent review. We always want our guests to enjoy our little slice of paradise as much as we do.
I’m also sorry to hear in your post that you left early feeling like you “lost that night” due to the incoming hurricane. I completely understand your desire to get out ahead of the weather. None of us could have seen that coming.
I will gladly issue a partial refund now that I am aware that you didn’t stay.
Great condo...great location!!!
Barry was awesome to work with! His condo is located in a small building, which resulted in smaller crowds on the beach in that area! Close to all the popular activities but more peaceful!
It was a wonderful experience from the first email to Barry till the last day there. Barry is a wonderful host who has a great condo right on the water. It was our first trip to Gulf Shores and we will definitely be back next year. Hopefully at the same place. Here are some things that I thought made it great, compared to other places I have stayed.
1) the linens and towels were great and there was plenty.
2) the beds were so comfy that my teen boys wanted to always sleep in..LOL
3) lots of dishes, pots and pans. Had everything you need to cook a good meal.
4) the views were breathtaking.
5) last but not least Barry is a great host!!
You can't go wrong with this rental!
Very clean and close to the beach.
Great space for square footage!
Being on the 3rd floor was very nice. The unit is right in front of the elevator(yay), which made it easy going up & down, and the elevator was never a long wait. The unit was laid out great for the square footage. The kitchen was narrow but who wants to be in the kitchen a lot on vacation! The owner was so nice & easy to work with, and even though our unit was not quite ready at 4 at check in time, they were so kind and the unit was one of the cleanest we've stayed in, and that is always a plus when youre staying in a rental:). The area around the pool was a little small but very nice. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice, comfortable place to stay!
Located on the beach in walking distance to local restaurants and area attractions. Large beach-side pool. Fully equipped kitchen, washer / dryer, telephone, internet, cable. Nicely decorated.
