Clean, great location & balcony

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with our family of six and had a wonderful vacation! The unit was clean, beds comfortable, and the balcony had an amazing view! Our biggest disappointment was that the railings on the balcony were not close together enough to let our toddler walk around out there while we drank our morning coffee or ate lunch. Her entire head fit right through the railings with about a half inch on either side! That being said, we didn't let her walk around out there and held her anytime we were on the balcony. We had to keep the balcony doors shut too... But safety first!! The pool was super warm, which was great for swimming on the more chilly days. There was security on site all the time and people were cleaning the lobby and hallways constantly, which was so nice! Thanks for a nice vacation!!

Great Condo!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay here. The decor in the condo was adorable. The beds were comfortable, despite some of the other reviews we read, we were a little concerned, but they were great. It was our third year at Surf Side Shores, but our first time in this condo. It might have been nice to be forewarned about exterminator coming in, however apparently they just let themselves in while we were out one day, not sure if that is an agreement with the condo owner or the condo complex itself. But overall we had a great stay. If I had one suggestion, could use a new frying pan, the two that were in there both have the nonstick coating pretty wore off, it was a little hard to flip an egg or grilled cheese. Some favorite restaurants we visited were Bahama Bob's, Gulf Island Grill, Crico's Pizza, Tacky Jack's and Flora Bama. Would definitely stay in this condo again, if we were to come to the area.

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. The balcony was extremely spacious, and the view was absolutely breathtaking! The condo was clean, and the decor choices were great! Many helpful things were left in drawers for us, such as a magazine of attractions, restaurant suggestions, and even a list of popular TV channels. I stayed in the guest bedroom, and the only downside was that the bathroom (the shower in particular) was pretty small. It was actually somewhat hard to shower in. However, I realize that this is just one of those things that simply can't be helped! On a positive, the water pressure was great! The beds were cozy; I would maybe recommend upgrading the pillows, however. This is more about the resort than the condo in particular, but the men on the trip absolutely loved the elevator as it was "one of the fastest elevators they've ever seen"! LOL. We all felt very safe in this area, and it is in a great location. The owner was very responsive and attentive to any questions or needs that arose during our stay. It was our first time to this area, and after our stay, we feel as if we found the best place to stay that suited not only our needs, but also our budget. We would book again if we returned to the area!

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning $85
Refundable damage deposit $200
Tax Rate 11.0%

The parking pass is purchased on site for $20. Each guest is able to purchase up to 2 parking passes.

Effective May 1,2018 Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are changing their tax structure from 11% to 13%. If you make an inquiry for a stay after May 1, I will edit the quote to reflect the 13% new rate. If you do an instant booking prior to May 1, for a stay after May 1, I will send you an additional payment request reflecting the difference between the current 11% tax rate and the soon to be 13% tax rate. I'm sorry for the inconvenience with the city changing tax rates mid year!! If you have any questions about the new tax structure please don't hesitate to call me at 504-453-7134.
Have a great day!
