It was the perfect size for our family of 4. Within a very short walk to the beach, so no sand got in our vehicle. It came with lots of extras that I had not even thought would be there. Renting this for our stay saved us money and allowed us enough room so that we were all very comfortable! Would definitely come back!

Prime location with amazing pool & beach access! In house amenities were lacking....bring your own pillows, blankets, coffee & salt & pepper!
Thomas S. May 2021
The beach was directly across the street and an easy walk. I brought my fan because I can't sleep without it but they had one. Adult only pool next to family pool. Very nice. Had everything we needed.
Daniel & Ashley D. Apr 2021
This is a great place to stay near the beach and close to several places to unwind.
Taylor H. Apr 2021

We loved the small cute community of this condo. Our condo was well equipped with most everything needed. Our family enjoyed the proximity to the beach and having to pools so close was great.

Brought the family down for spring break and was excited to find this place so close to the beach with a balcony overlooking the pool. Unfortunately the pool was closed the entire time to replace the pool deck. The guys that came to work spent 2-3 hours in the morning attaching a few new boards the gone again. Seems there was no urgency with finishing the work. This was a huge disappointment for my family as we came for sun and swimming. I attempted to reach the property manager to inquire but never heard back. Reached out to Vacasa directly and they promised I would hear back...still waiting. Spent a bit of time cleaning a grill so it could be used for cooking since the condo was only had a 6” fry pan. I ended up purchasing one so we could make breakfast in the mornings. One of the twin beds seems to have a broken box spring and sinks with a 70 lb child sleeping on it. The other beds were hard but did the job. The place needs a deep cleaning big time. Although the place was “surface cleaned” there is dust and dirt caked on vents and floors. This was surprising to see with all the “enhanced COVID19 cleaning”. The place has potential to be solid assuming the pool is ever reopened so you have the ability to move from beach to pool but it is in desperate need of some tlc. At the time we left the pictures were still very deceiving.
Manager response:
Hi, Lindsay! Thank you for letting us know about your visit. We sincerely apologize for the disappointments you experienced. This home will be getting scheduled for a deep clean along with kitchen inventory. The mattresses and frames have just been replaced. We hope to see you again!

Great location and right across the road from the beach.
Liked the decor of the apt, was homely with coastal feel.
Beds definitely need to be softer so consider padding or new mattress.
Definitely would stay again.
Ashley D. Nov 2020
Very quiet
Leroy L. Sep 2020

Great place to stay! Very cute and had everything we needed!
kayla b. Jul 2020
Everything!!!! Really have no complaints, only suggestion would be to maybe keep the pool open later possibly in the summer or on weekends at least for adults, and have check out later than 10:00..... other than that the pools were amazing as well the condo which was beautiful had a great view of both pools was spacious and clean!!!! Definitely would recommend and stay again!!
Manager response:
Hi Kayla, thank you for staying and for your feedback. Due to updated cleaning protocols in accordance to CDC guidelines, we have temporarily set our check-out time to 10 am in order for our housekeeping staff to have an apt amount of time to ensure the home is thoroughly cleaned and inspected. We apologize for any inconvenience. We hope to host you again in the future!

Angela M. Jun 2020
My family loved staying there but the TV in the living room didn’t work but most importantly the sliding door wouldn’t lock. It was amazingly clean and and nicely decorated. I would definitely go again.

This is the first time we’ve stayed in Gulf Shores. We usually stay in Orange Beach in one of the Phoenix high rise condos, but LOVED the private cozy feel here. We never used the pool, and spent most of the time on the beach, but both pools were beautiful and actually not over crowded at all. The area felt safe and inviting. You are close to a great beach side restaurant- and not too far from grocery stores and other shops. The beach is a short walk across the street and is beautiful. There is a espérate pool area for adults and children. We brought our children this trip and felt this was a great family friendly place. Almost everything you need is provided in the unit. Bring charcoal if you want to grill, (we found 2 charcoal grills on the property by the pool),detergent to wash clothes, groceries and beach towels and you are all set. They provide everything else-soap, dishwasher detergent pods and hotel soaps in the bathrooms- which I thought was nice even though we brought our own. In the parking area, we also found some beach toys for the kids. The house was clean and tidy when we arrived and is decorated well. We loved the inviting beach decor. There were even board and card games for family fun inside. The deck on the back overlooks the pool and is a great quiet place for morning coffee or evening cocktails, even without an oven view. I would give 5 stars except for no linens were provided for the fold out couch. We found some blankets and pillows, but no sheets or pillow cases. The only other issue was the Master bedroom bed is very hard and uncomfortable. I would suggest a mattress pad at least 4 inches thick, but I don’t know if that’s possible because of the bed height. I could not stay there again because of how uncomfortable the bed was. Perhaps a mattress pad 2 inches might work if it is a good one and wouldn’t require a step up to get into the bed. 😝 Im 5’6 and it was a little hop to get in the bed as it was. The kids thought the twin beds were nice and the fold out was comfortable even without sheets. There is defiantly a trick to unlocking the door with the code. We were never able to unlock the lock box to get the key, but managed to get in with the code quite easily when we first arrived, but then after leaving and locking the doors to spend the day away, had some difficulty getting back in. After several attempts and holding on the phone for assistance, my 11 year old made it work. 🤪 We travel to Gulf Shores/ Orange Beach 3-4 times a year. I would HIGHLY recommend #117 and would make it our go to rental if the sleeping accommodations improved in the master. We really enjoyed our stay, but my 40 year old body is looking forward to sleeping in a comfier bed. Could not book again only because of the uncomfortable bed- but would LOVE to if they rectified that.
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback and will advise the owner of your experience with the mattress. Thank you for staying with us!

I loved everything about the condo it was amazing!!!
Mike S. Jun 2020
I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Really good location, very clean and very well maintained. We had an issue with the door combo when we arrived, but Richard the maintenance man came to our rescue.
We plan on using this place again next time we are in Gulf Shores.
Patrice F. May 2020
This condo was just what we needed. We liked the adult pool. I would stay again
Elisha F. May 2020
The place was very clean. There was laundry detergent, dish washing liquid, dish washer pods, paper towels, towels, pots and pans. The listing said a coffee maker but it’s actually a Kurig which is better. The only thing I would suggest to anyone renting is to request an upstairs room. We did not sleep at all because the people above us were up partying all night and you could hear stomping alllll night. The place was very very very clean. The pool was clean and not crowded. Just a walk across the street to the beach. Food and stores all around it. Wifi worked but was a little slow. There is even a table on the balcony if u want to eat outside.

Perfect for my family of 3 kids and single mom. Girls shared a room, son had livingroom and I had my own space. We loved it and loved the location. My teens could go to the pool and I could keep an eye or ear for them from the condo. Hope to visit again soon. Beautiful condo. Thank you so much!

Kitchen could use better cookware, but I'm a chef, so standards are high. Bring a step stool for the master bed if you are under 5'8", lol. It's pretty high off the ground. I'm 5'4" and struggled a bit. Bring garbage bags, laundry soap, dryer sheets and dishwasher tabs. Dont forget to turn on ice machine when you walk in, lol. Also bring an extension cord for your phone unless your cord is pretty long. Where the plugs are in the bedroom, mine couldnt be reached if plugged in.

Great place!! Great price
Sally L. Sep 2019
The condo was clean, beachy, and comfortable. We loved it. It had a washer and dryer, 3 tv’s, 1 bathroom. Loved starting everyday with coffee on the deck. We spent every afternoon in the adult pool after a morning on the beach. Also loved how close the beach was. Only complaint was the tv. We could only change channels by scrolling through every channel. Easy access to everything. I will definitely stay there again.
Matthew B. Sep 2019
My wife and I, took our daughter, 3 years old, and we had a great time. Perfect location, great price. Will come back again soon.

We had a great stay. The property manager, Skye, was absolutely wonderful to deal with. He was more than helpful to 2 old retired snowbirds. Highly recommend a trip to Gulf Shores!
Bryan G. Jan 2019
Appeared to be professionally decorated. Well stocked with bath towels, toilet paper and they even left a little soap for both
the dishwasher and washing machine. I will definitely stay at this unit again when vacationing in Gulf Shores.
Grace Anne B. Oct 2018
Super convenient to the shrimp fest, restaurants and beach! Comfy beds and loved sitting on the patio and being able to see the kiddo’s play in the pool.
Kristi N. Oct 2018
This condo was perfect for my family of 4. The condo was just as described. We cooked back at the condo a few times and had everything we needed. Just a short walk across the street to the beach. Very easy walk to several stores and restaurants. We will definitely stay there again.
Maria N. Oct 2018
This was a very clean and cute bungalow. The location was great, with easy access to the beach, dining, and shops. We didn’t use the pool but it looked very welcoming from the back deck. We came during the off-season which was another plus. Only one thing was a con. We stayed on the first floor and when the people above flushed the toilet, it was very noisy in the walls. Banging and tapping noises. Thankfully we left the day they arrived so we didn’t have to deal with that for very long. Overall this is a great place to stay.
C E. Sep 2018
The location was great close to the beach. Everything we wanted to do was within a 10 min drive.

Cassie L. Jul 2018
Well stocked, comfortable condo, short easy walk to the beach. We were a little hesitant to rent a place so close to the pool, but noise was not an issue at all. It was very close to everything. The condo was clean and provided plenty of linens. My only complaint was the ac had a hard time keeping up. It was 80 degrees inside at 10pm one night. Overall a great place to stay if you're looking for a place close to the beach and restaurants. I would stay here again.
Rachel N. Jul 2018
We enjoyed our stay here at Lani kai. It was very clean and roomy. It was nice being so close to the beach as well.
