About Suki Nielson

We live in the Huntsville Alabama area and own this one property as a vacation getaway. We rent it as a way to help pay the mortgage and afford the property. We have vacationed at Gulf Shores and Orange Beach area since we migrated to Alabama in 1997 and now we have our dream. We finally took the big step in 2016 to have our own place on the beach. We love the quiet, comfortable atmosphere of the area and of course the clean, sugar white sand beaches and when we visit, we hate to leave. We always look forward to our next trip and we want your vacation to be the same. Our goal is to have our place feel like home, only better. We wanted a resort feel and top quality furnishings along with a gourmet kitchen. When you walk into our ninth floor unit, we hope you will be pleased and enjoy your surroundings. If you smile and feel good as you look around, we have done our job. If you have any suggestions how we can make your stay more satisfying, please let us know. We are not a faceless company and we do not own any other rentals, so we can respond to your needs and make our condo the best on the beach. All we ask is that you treat our place as you would your own. Thanks, Suki and Randy.

Why Suki Nielson chose Gulf Shores

We think this is the perfect location! We are on a beautiful beach, close enough to stores and restaurants so that we are not wasting all day shopping for things we need, but far enough away so that we and our family can fully enjoy this. There is ample and safe parking, dependable elevators, and a well thought out community room with staff support.

What makes this condo unique

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:

There is so much to see and do, including just relaxing on the sugar white sands. We always enjoy the fresh seafood while at the beach. There are numerous great places for good eats to fit every appetite and budget. It is a short drive to anything you may need such as outlet mall shopping, charter fishing boats, golf courses, airports, a water park and amusement park, historical sites, museums, home of the Navy Blue Angels, live entertainment, and of course the beach is right outside your door.

We absolutely loved staying here!

  • 5 of 5

This condo went above and beyond our expectations. Very clean and well furnished with a ceiling fan in every room. The kitchen was stocked with all the appliances and utensils we could possibly need. The view was incredible! I can't say enough nice things about it. We will definitely stay here again!

Great Condo in Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations are fantastic and everything you need for an enjoyable stay on the beach are in the room or at the property. The room is spacious and has a great view of the entire beach. I would have no hesitation staying there again. The owners were very responsive with our questions.

Perfect in every way except one!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If it weren't for the "stinkin' " jellyfish, our week at Suki and Randy's place would have been perfect. We had a couple of issues that Suki took care of amazingly fast! I've rented for MANY years on the Gulf, in NC/SC and FL and have never had such good vibes with an owner as we had with Suki. She is terrific. And, the condo is super.....the beds were comfy, TV's all worked and since I do a lot of "cooking-in," it was terrific that I never once didn't find what I needed to prepare whatever I was fact, the pots 'n pans are better than what I have in my own home!!!!! If we ever decide to visit Gulf Shores again.....Suki and Randy's place will be our choice.

We have stayed at many condos in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach over the past 25 years. Some weren’t up to our expectations but most were nice. There are some things about the CSW 904 condo that makes it be our favorite. The location is perfect. On the 9th floor you have a great view of the beach, sun rises and sun sets. The accommodations are better than most. The bed is very comfortable and the view from the bed room is great. The Living room / dining room have very nice and comfortable furniture, again the views are awesome. The kitchen is well equipped for your cooking if you choose. One of the best thing about this condo is the owners. They have been very nice and accommodating for all our needs. They are very prompt with response to your questions or needs. We will be staying again soon.
