Everything was simple amazing. Our condo was clean and perfect. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming that was there. I will most definitely book again for our next vacation.

This was perfect for our girls get away. Great views, central location, clean well kept unit that was just enough room. Pool area nice - we would stay again for sure!
BRIAN T. Jul 2020
The place was clean and had everything we needed and location to beach is pretty convenient. Even had a covered parking spot. Only negative is that while you do have a view of the ocean, the road between the condo and ocean is heavily traveled with a lot of noise. But overall it’s a nice place.

Locating the parking pass was a little confusing, but a local office helped me find out the pass would be in the condo waiting for me. There's a convenient crosswalk to use to get to the beach. The pool was a big hit with our 10 year old. Everything was clean, plenty of towels/linens. Could have used an extra garbage bag for the kitchen. Appreciated that dish washing supplies, laundry detergent, bathroom soap was provided. Very convenient to grocery store and restaurants.

This condo is ok, not sure if we will stay there again…
Pros:
- Great parking!
- Good location between Gulf Shores and Florabama, with lots of grocery stores, pharmacies, and restaurants near by.
- Pool was excellent temperature!
- The dishwasher and sink in kitchen were great!

Cons:
- Beds are not comfortable.
- Air conditioning is only controlled in the upstairs loft, which was an inconvenience for my family.
- The walk across the street to access the beach wasn't too bad; I would have been nervous with little kids though.
- Couch should probably be replaced, it is cracked and hurts legs when you sit on it with shorts.
- Drawers in the refrigerator stick and/or needed repair.
Manager response:

Great getaway and awesome condo
Jessica S. Jun 2020
Loved! It was cute, homey, and clean! Perfect locations and complex was spotless. LOVED the grilling area. So so nice! Security guys walk the property and take their jobs very seriously! Will for sure stay here again!!

*a few minor problems:
-someone broke microwave handle off.
-the kitchen sink flooded the cabinet and kitchen floor. The dishwasher was backed up and filled with old water.

Manager response:
Hi, Jessica! We appreciate you staying with us and leaving your feedback for our improvement. The microwave handle has been replaced, and the installation of a new garbage disposal has improved the drainage of the dishwasher and sink. We hope to see you again!

Loved the place, it was clean and had everything we needed. It was convenient and a good location.

This property was great. Across the street from the beach, plenty of space in the unit and a very nice view. Great location to restaurants, the beach, and shopping. Nicely furnished. Kitchen needs a toaster and the description said it had a hair dryer however there wasn’t one in the unit, so make sure you bring one. Oh, and the bedroom needs curtains!! When the sun comes up if you need a dark room to sleep in - this isn’t it. At first light and/or the occasional nap - without curtains or a darker room there was no sleeping for me. So add curtains to the unit to help those that the light wakes up!

The only other issue I had was communication with the company. It took over an hour and a half to get someone to respond to me on the issue that I was locked out of the unit and my access code wasn’t working. In their defense, it’s amidst the Corona Virus breaking loose and I’m sure they had a ridiculous amount of phone calls and cancellations but, even so, there really should be a dedicated number given to those checking in to call with any issues on the property that isn’t the general phone number. Even with holding on the phone in queue, requesting a call back on a secondary phone of mine, and texting as the message said, the only way I got a response was via Facebook messenger. So thank you to however it was that finally responded to me via that route and please update your system or policies to help those checking in - in a more timely manner. As for the other options - it’s days later and I still haven’t received a text or call back on the secondary number I called in from. So.....🤷🏼‍♀️

I still rated the property 5 stars as I would definitely stay here again. I loved the layout. It just needs a few minor touches and better communication from the company.

We are a family of 6 and this condo accommodated us perfectly. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals. The location is ideal. The property is situated right across the street from the beach we were able to view the beach from the balcony. There's a publix grocery store right around the corner and several restaurants withn 1 mile.
My only complaint is the downstairs bedroom does maintain a cool temperature like the upstairs loft. However fans are kept in the closet which solved that problem. Overall excellent stay!
