Why Libby chose Gulf Shores

We have always loved Gulf Shores and its easy accessibity! This unit is perfect for my family. We love the area and the family complex. We enjoy fishing, nature and Gulf Shores' proximity to many historical areas. We are able to walk to so many things from Southwinds and can quickly access the highways when we choose to take a trip.

Great place, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, and had everything I wanted for a weekend beach getaway. The property is directly across from beautiful, brand new public beach access, and was walking distance to a TON of different places. Parking was plentiful, and we found everything we needed in this condo. Would definitely stay again!

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

Loved the area as it was convienent to pretty much everything. I agree with the previous post in regards to the blackout curtains. Not only for sleeping in but it would help with keeping the upstairs cooler. We enjoyed our stay and the owner was very quick to repair the air conditioner upon our arrival.

Perfect place for my small family

  • 5 of 5

The condo was nice and cozy. Perfect location! Real easy to find. Plus it has a pool. My only con: the windows need black out curtains. That way i would have slept past 7am.
