About Janet Ayers

We both retired from the Transportation Industry. I was with the Airlines my husband Management. We live in Olive Branch, MS and have a wonderful blended family of 5 children and 12 grandchildren.

Janet Ayers purchased this condo in 2015

Why Janet Ayers chose Gulf Shores

After Vacationing for years with our family my husband and I decided that we loved coming back more and more. It just seemed obvious that we needed somewhere that all of our children and grandchildren could come. We hope you enjoy your trip as much as we have and make as many family memories. We come with the entire family - brothers, sisters, cousins, grandparents, every fall. All 35 or so and have a great time. We bond together and build memories that I can not explain. We take a huge family photo and individual family photos for Christmas pictures. Try it you will never for get it.

What makes this condo unique

I knew when I found a place I was going to build in a bunk bed just like the one I had seen in the picture in this condo. Then when this one came into reach for us we could not believe it. It was a sign that this was the one. My husband said we could not let this one get away. We love the way it is centrally located and you can walk to everything. Being walkers we love that.

Lansing MI

We had a wonderful vacation! The condo is cozy and very kid friendly. We appreciated how well stocked the kitchen is and loved having on site laundry!

The short walk to the beach was easy and convenient. Janet is a gracious host and incredibly easy to work with.

We can't wait to come back!

Kids View: Need a Ice Cream Machine while waiting for clothes to wash. And we had a snazing time. So cozy. Had a great time, so fun.(All with hearts around it. LOL I will think about it kids)

absolutely fantastic; great comfortable place; superb beds; lovely little kitchen; A/C works GREAT!

  • 5 of 5

we had a wonderful stay in this lovely little condo - close to the beach (10 minute walk down and across street... perfect to dry swimsuits!); close to all shops, but still "private"; great little pool; well-supplied (with dishes) kitchen. The 6 of us (women ages 18 to 61!) enjoyed staying here. Janet was incredible - from the time I reserved it (way back in early 2016!) through the end - always available via text or phone; helpful in whatever question we might ask. Cindy, the cleaning person, was kind and helpful as well, and very friendly :) We would highly recommend renting from Janet any time; and we hope to come back to this lovely place!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

It was a fantastic location, and we had so much fun hanging out at the pool. If anyone is ever going to Hangout Fest, it's perfect. The only "complaint" was that there is only one of everything in the house and then you need to replenish it. For example, only a few rolls of toilet paper, one roll of paper towels, etc. Also, it sleeps 7, but they provide only 2 beach towels. It's not a huge deal, but just be prepared to bring a lot of your own stuff, which is harder when you're flying in. Overall, we had a great time!

Owner's Response: Sorry Anna you did not understand when you rent a condo it is in the contract like with most rentals that you always get a starter of everything. Also I came into the condo right behind you and I guess you didn't see the other two beach towels that were in the master closet someone had set in there. That would be a total of four. Those are complimentary and many condos do not furnish those at all. I have huge thick towels and linens enough for large groups that take up so much space not the wafer towels. Thank you for staying with us and hope to see you again.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect. It was stocked with everything you would need and more 😊 We have a family of seven and there was plenty of room for everyone. We didn't have to get in our car to go anywhere until we were headed back home because everything was walking distance. The beach access was across the street but at a crosswalk so no issues crossing over. Janet was wonderful and answered any questions I had. Would definitely consider staying here again!

Hundreds of thousands of people come from miles away for the famous Hangout Musicfest and the ShrimpFest every year and we are conveniently located just steps away from the entrance.

If you are a fishing fan there are charters at the marinas all just down Beach Blvd. Or the Dolphin Cruises fun for the entire family.

We have several Golf Courses in the area.

If the weather is bad or you just had enough of the sun for a day try out the Tangor Outlet Mall with 100's of stores just 9 miles from the condo on Hwy 59.

And Fort Morgan for the history buffs sure to fill your head with what your looking for on Hwy 180
