It’s a great place to stay!
Robert M.Oct 2021
Nice location and amenities. Close to the beach which is really nice in the area. Could use a coat of paint and fixing some water damage.
Doreen B.Oct 2021
The view was great! The condo was clean, but the bathroom needs a bit of paint which is why I didn’t give it 5 stars. Would stay there again!
Hi Doreen! Thank you for your review! We're glad to hear that you were able to enjoy the views that this home provides! We have taken your comments to our local staff so that we may necessary upgrades for future guests to enjoy! We hope to see you again soon!

This hidden gem was just what my family needed for a weekend getaway! Loved being in a more private area. We will return!
Jessica D.Jun 2021
Close to the beach
Gary O.May 2021
The view from bed to the ocean was perfect way too wake up. Very clean, very safe, and had anything you need to cook and clean during your stay. Felt like home away from home. We will be back!
Trent J.May 2021
Kinda far from a lot of things in Gulf Shores like 30 mins for most but the beach was beautiful and the place was comfortable. Shower wasn’t very good tho. Also , you have to pay $35 a day to use the chairs on the beach so make sure to bring your own. One good note is that the bed in the loft had a window you could see the ocean from!
Kim D.May 2021
This was the perfect amount of space for the two of us. Great value and super close to the beach. It was exactly as advertised. A few basic updates would make a huge difference in freshening it up, like a coat of paint and a new comforter upstairs. The current one has several noticeable stains.
ANGELIQUE K.May 2021
We stayed in the two bedroom condo for 8 nights. 2 adults 3 kids (6years and under). It was very spacious for us. The dishes weren't all clean, however thats on the party before us. The room was clean for the most part, when we moved the coffee table as soon as we got there so the kids wouldn't run into it, there was trash under it. Also some left over undies in the drawers which wasn't pleasant. The room had a closet with cleaning supplies in it to help minimize the sand in the room which was nice. The place was easy to get to, security was the sweetest always took time to talk with the kids when coming through the entrance. I disliked not having any real way to contact anyone for more towel or blankets or anything we might have needed. Never seen any housekeeping the entire week we spent there. The pictures provided on booking were accurate. Overall, would return in the future.
Hi, Angelique! Thank you for letting us know about your visit. We do apologize housekeeping was lacking and will get this addressed. We hope to see you again!
Amanda P.Apr 2021
Great place to stay, it felt like home rite away clean, cute loved the decorations. We also enjoyed our view WOW ocean and pool amazing. I highly recomend this place!!
Demetta M.Aug 2020
The beach was amazing! The resort was great. The condo was clean. The only thing I had an issue with was finding my room code buried deep in the instructions. I would like that in bold numbers so it’s easier to find. But other than that, fantastic stay and I will book here again!
Larry H.Aug 2020
Loved the short walk to the beautiful beach. It is a little out of way to the nearest store or place to shop but we were fine with that.
Laura G.Jul 2020
This was our first family beach trip here. The condo was just the perfect size for our family. We liked being able to view the pool from the balcony and having the ocean view from the third floor. Elevator is a huge bonus! Also, we ate at the Sassy Bass several times. Very convenient being in the same complex and enjoyed the food! Would definitely stay here again!
Joana D.May 2020
This home is adequate for a quick trip. It is outdated But clean. We did have an issue with the garbage disposal- loft TV and light on the patio. The maintenance person was able to fix the patio light and garbage disposal but the cable never worked in the loft. The maintenance person was hopping once he arrived but he must be stretched thin because i called at 7 pm and he didn’t arrive until 3:30 pep the next day.
Thank you for your review, Joana. We are glad you enjoyed this home and apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. We will work with our local team to ensure these items are corrected for future guests. We hope to host you again in the near future!

Very clean condo. That’s always number one in my book. The coffee pot was missing it’s lid , and the toaster wouldn’t work. They were replaced with brand new ones that afternoon after I reached out to the company. It’s a small amount of space, but perfect for a girls’ trip or a small family of four. Walk to the beach is short.
William H.Mar 2020
The teenagers really liked the upstairs. Everyone liked the facilities available to guests.
Connie C.Feb 2020
It was very nice, but not enough pots and pans to cook with and they were wore out and not enough lighting in the kitchen
Kerry L.Oct 2019
Location, security. Quiet. Well maintained grounds. Private beach.
Heather G.Sep 2019
Great place ! Very quiet! Clean .
If you enjoy being away from the city life ... I would suggest this place . Your 14 miles out from the main town in gulf shores . Make sure you have mostly everything before you make your trip back out there . Or else you’ll be spending a lot of time on the road back n forth to town . They had 7 pools to choose to swim in . 2 hot tubs .. indoor pools ... sauna .. exercise room . They have access directly to the beach and it’s easy to get to . Have showers to rinse off in. There’s no glass bottles allowed in or around the pool area . Guy warned us & then called security on us before we could even get out of the pool . Other than that it’s definitely a place to just chill.
Amanda G.Sep 2019
We enjoyed our stay. A couple of minor hiccups--internet did not work and upstairs TV was out, but there was a DVD player so that worked out for our 6 year old at night. I called Vacasa Alabama about the internet--they were wonderful. I was updated that the manager was working on things but I understood with the weather and holiday weekend, it may not have been fixed by the time we left. Other than that, everything was great. Staff was friendly, the location is great and very peaceful. The walk to the beach is easy and you feel like you're on your own little resort away from all of crazy busy tourist part of town.
Elana A.Aug 2019
It was a little more secluded than I anticipated but it worked out. There’s a little grocery store up the road for all the essentials. Another resort nearby had live entertainment, food trucks, and plenty activities for the kids. The condo was clean, comfortable, and the decor was really cute. The views of the ocean from the loft and balcony were beautiful. It was quiet and very family friendly. The short walk through the pool area to the beach was great. And the beach was not overly crowded because of the location. The late check in box was easy to find and late check out was convenient. Would definitely recommend and stay here again!
Tami S.Jul 2019
The view was pretty good. It was only a short walk to the ocean and beach. Very clean and cute. There was more room than I thought we would have. We had an issue with the hide a bed, but they sent someone over right away and resolved the problem quickly. We were impressed👍🏻
John H.Jul 2019
We have now stated here several times and always love it. We like the quiet of the Fort Morgan area. The plantation is well maintained and has everything we need for a great vacation.
Jennifer B.May 2019
The view was so much better than we expected. Room was clean and comfortable!
Robert U.Apr 2019
Well appointed and situated. Clean.
Tara B.Apr 2019
The only down side to this home was the shower head is very rough especially when you have a sunburn and I think the kitchen could have used a few more tools such as an extra pan, containers and mixing bowls. Other than that, the home was very clean and the amenities were fabulous and the beach view was beautiful.
