Modern 3BR/3.5BA with fabulous beach and gulf views
About Bennie Bostick
My wife is a Georgia girl and I'm from Louisiana/Mississippi, so Gulf Shores was a great fit for our family. I have somewhat successfully converted her from a Georgia Bulldog to an Ole Miss Rebel, although she does occasionally blurt out a "Go Dawgs." We have four children and four grandchildren.
Bennie Bostick purchased this Condo in 2016

Cozy and cute
We loved this place. Our family will definitely return as soon as possible. The owners were very responsive, and every amenity had a personal touch.; even little board books for my kids! Furnishings were up to date and luxurious.
Beach trip with the girls
We loved everything about this property. It wasn’t a typical condo stay. The kitchen has wonderful cookware and had everything we needed. Beds were very comfortable with great linens.
It felt like home.
Great communication with the owner.
Ok, but not as expected
Owner was great at responding to concerns. Condo was not as nice as expected per listing. Carpets were visibly soiled, feet were black from walking on floors, counter tops and bedding was dirty, hairs on counter in bathrooms. Contacted owner and he immediately sent out housekeeper. Condo needs some TLC. Walls need paint, black marks on walls, chips of paint off cabinets, one of the tubs was rusting toward the drain side. You also have to pay for anything extra you want to do, even if you pay for resort amenities. The price of the condo was more expensive than what we normally pay. At other condos the amenities are included. This condo was also further out than we expected, so if you want to be closer to restaurants or activities it's about a 15 minute drive back to Gulf Shores. Upside: 3 and a half baths was great for 7 people. These concerns didn't keep us from having a good time at the beach, but will definitely be a consideration when booking next year.
This guest's first complaint, before check-in, was that we had not sent check-in information or a door code. According to VRBO records, she had been granted access to the VRBO Hospitality Suite which details everything a guest could ever possibly want to know. She never accessed the Hospitality Suite, nor did she download the suggested app. According to my email records she had also received the door code several days prior to check-in. All guests agree to costs, amenities, LOCATION, etc. when they agree to rent this or any other VRBO property. The second complaint of the condo not being clean, etc. came after they had unloaded and unpacked all of their luggage, been outside of the condo, and taken showers. We immediately sent our housekeeper of three years over to inspect. She was told by other guests that the lady who kept calling, and the person who wrote this review, was making a big deal over nothing. It is the end of summer, and yes there were a few nicks in the paint from previous guests, and yes a child had drawn a single black mark in a closet, but nothing to diminish the value of the property or the quality of the stay. I would simply encourage potential guests to view all of our other reviews, including the guests who checked out just prior to this guest checking in.
Everything was perfect!
We would definitely stay here again! I loved that there were plenty of towels/wash cloths. No one wants to do laundry on vacation! I would not recommend purchasing extras through the beach club (you have everything you need already!)
Absolutely fell in love with the condo. In my 14 year olds words, the best place we have ever stayed! We will definitely be back!
This was our first trip to The Beach Club and we really enjoyed. all of the amenities were very close by. The condo was very spacious and Bennie was very accommodating. We would definitely stay again!
