This nonsmoking unit comes complete with a washer/dryer, DVD players, and cable television. Monthly rentals are available November-March. Assigned parking 1 car maximum.
We liked the view access to the beach, however the stove was an accident waiting to happen and the cleaning service did not dust.
Was not sure what to expect based on other reviews but there was plenty of room for the 8 of us and could have accommodated 12 easily. The balcony was a great place to hang in the early AM and later in the evening. Glad there was an elevator so it was easy to unload and load from the car. The loft which has a queen and two twin beds decorated in car decor was a great place for the kids to hang out. The living room has limited seating with a couch and recliner but the dining table and kitchen bar has plenty of seating. The condo was clean and had all its amenities but the ceiling fans looked like they had not been cleaned in a year...that was strange. The outside of the unit could use a coat of paint because that is your first impression. The pool was small but the kids loved it. The only real drawback was the WIFI which we never got connected for the Xbox. Parking can be tricky because there is only one assigned place per condo. So if you bring more than one car make sure you get a parking pass for that second car and be prepared to always keep one car in guest parking so you don't lose it. But with all this being said, we would definitely rent this condo again. We had the best time and it is conveniently located to restaurants, The Hangout, Waves and to all the shops. One last thing...the bedroom that doesn't have access to the balcony, it has a strange sound coming from the vent that can be a little annoying when you are trying to sleep.
My family and I were very excited. We had never been to Gulf Shores before, and could not believe we were lucky enough to find a condo right on the beach. After driving 14 hours to get there, we carried our bags up to the unit, I was the first one in and never in a million years did I expect to see what I did. It was the dirtiest, unkempt place I have ever seen. It does not look like it had been painted for years and years. Also, there was blood on a chair, crusty food on the walls, broken furniture, mold on the ceiling vents, hair on the toilet seat, hair in between the sheets, (we were told the unit had been cleaned). We made a call to management and asked that they come and talk to us. The manager came, and said they would move us, but could not guarantee it would be facing the beach, and I was sure it would not be any cleaner than the one we were in, so said no, that is not an option. She said it must not have been cleaned this week. I said there is no way the place is this gross from not cleaning it once, this was years and years of neglect. They said they would have housekeeping and maintenance come in and work on it, but after spending our first 3 hours of vacation out on the patio because the place was too gross to be in, and no way were we going to unpack our bags. I told her the only solution was for us to get our money back so we could to find a different place. Our money was refunded, but did not make up for the stress we had that first day. We had 7 adults and 3 very young children with us, so not what we expected for a vacation at Gulf Shores. I will say that we were able to find a different place to stay, so the vacation was saved! Please think twice before staying here, save yourself the misery!
My girl friend and I took our son's and a few friends to this Unit for Spring Break. We had plenty of clean towels, but I had old blood stains on my comforter in the Master Bedroom. The mattress on the sofa bed was so thin it was like sleeping on springs. The kids also found old crackers and crumbs in the sheets. The back door knob was very loose making it hard to use the door which leads to the balcony. The kitchen faucet was hard to move from hot to cold and I thought the nozzle would eventually fall off. Who ever leased the property before us put dirty dishes away the morning they are suppose to clean all the dishes and put away. There was peanut butter on some forks and knives and all the plates, cups and utensils had to be washed in the dishwasher before we could use them as they had leftover food particles on them. The kitchen cabinets drawers were so sticky, clearly they needed to be washed down and even re-painted. No knob on the dishwasher so I had to guess where the beginning of the cycle was. There were a few other things, but this is enough to say. I feel so bad, because the management company was so accommodating and helped me with everything and anything I needed. I did give them a handwritten list so they could give it to the owner in hopes she just didn't know all of the above. But, to book it at the very last minute and the price, I guess what should I have expected. It has enough beds for everyone and we did have an awesome time. We weren't going to let broken things ruin our FUN...... I'm sure the owner didn't know and will get all of this fixed. Do know that this unit is on the 3rd floor and the elevator is way down on the other side. I had a back surgery go wrong so this was not convenient for me, but the kids could care less. Wanted you to know just in case you need a bottom floor. God Bless.
