Beachfront condo with wrap-around balcony, pool & Gulf views

Cute and beachy, this condo is ready to greet you after a long day of traveling. Step inside the foyer and say ah-h-h when you're drawn to the walls of windows bringing in the sunlight and Gulf views. Discover the enchantment of sun, sand, and soothing surf when you step out on the wrap-around balcony of this third-floor, Gulf-front condo. You'll enjoy breathtaking views from every room in this three-bedroom, two-bath escape. Relax and let the Gulf breezes encourage you to embrace 'island time' for a few days!

The wrap-around balcony is perfect for relaxing with your morning coffee, watching dolphins and coastal birds, and listening to Gulf waves lap against the white sand beach. Everyone is drawn to magnificent sunrises and sunsets from the balcony and the beach. There is a deck box full of beach chairs and toys to take to the beach. There are also rental loungers and umbrellas available on the beach from March to October. Gulf Village condominiums not only have the beach right outside; they enjoy a private fishing pier on Little Lagoon across the road behind the cottages. Day's Beachfront Dream is on the third level, with the elevator within 15 feet. There are two pools, with one just below the condo. Grills are poolside and parking is underneath the building, with carts to transport your luggage to the condo! Bring only what you need; there is a washer/dryer in the kitchen.

Most folks have a light breakfast and rush out to the sunshine, sand, and surf. They may take a cooler with drinks and snacks to the beach or come up for a sandwich for lunch. By 5 pm, you may be ready for a shower and dinner at one of the wonderful seafood restaurants nearby. Or, you could put something in the crockpot or prepare a shrimp boil at the condo. The kitchen is fully equipped for food preparation and service. Wine glasses are above the sink, the dining table seats six, and there are two bar chairs. If you've brought the kids, grab the flashlights and head back to the beach around 8 pm to search for sand crabs on the moonlit sand. Delightful memories will bring smiles for decades to come.

For entertainment, there is a large TV and media player in the living room. There are also cards, board games, and puzzles for fun family time. Each bedroom has a mounted TV and a Blu-ray player. Satellite TV and free WiFi are available throughout the condo. Paperback books for beach reading are in both bedside tables in the queen room. Bring your Fire Stick or Roku if movies are your favorite way to relax after a day on the beach. The couch becomes a comfy sleeper sofa if needed.

All bedrooms have breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico. Separated from the others, the master bedroom has a king-size bed and the en suite bathroom has a walk-in shower. To the left of the entry, you'll find that the second bedroom has a queen bed, and the third has twin beds. A second bathroom with a full tub/shower combination is across from the guest bedrooms.

The property is 1.3 miles away from The Hangout on West Beach. Wonderful seafood restaurants are nearby, and the Tanger Outlets are a few miles up Highway 59 in Foley. Just a couple of blocks up West Beach Boulevard, there's the Beach House Kitchen for dining out as well as S&S Seafood, which will fry, blacken, or steam seafood for you to bring back to the condo. Janino's Pizza is just across the street for easy take-out. Billy's Seafood, located on County Road 10 on Bon Secour River, is great for purchasing fresh shrimp, and preparation instructions are even given upon purchase. Rouse's Grocery is prevalent along the Gulf Coast from New Orleans to Orange Beach, and we have one a couple of miles away on Highway 59 in Gulf Shores! You can find wonderful seafood and Louisiana specialties there!

Exceptionally clean throughout, well stocked and roomy kitchen, nice kitchen appliances. The view was spectacular!
Virginia F. Nov 2022
The beach front view was incredible. The unit was nicely decorated although the furniture was not very clean.
Manager response:
Virginia, thank you for your review. We apologize for the furniture not being cleaned as thoroughly as is our standard. Please know that local staff is available to assist with any cleanliness issues you encounter while in the home. We hope to get the chance to host you again! Thank you.

View, location and beachfront
Julie E. Oct 2021
We loved the location and the condo was sizeable and clean. The only downside was the pool was out of order until further notice so it would have been nice to know that info.
Belinda H. Oct 2021
This place was a great location with an excellent view!!
Claudia E. Aug 2021
Nice condo with a gorgeous view right ON THE BEACH !! We had a party of 6 and it was roomy and comfortable with everything we needed. Worth every penny simply for the view and the convenience of having the beach literally feet away from your condo building !!! Master bedroom king size bed was VERY comfortable. The only reason we would not give it a 5 star review was it was a little older building and doesn’t have the wow factor from the street. Needs a good clean up and freshening up with paint and maintenance issues, but the unit itself was very nice. Other than a VERY moldy shower curtain in the master bedroom bath and some minor maintenance issues (ALL of the remote controls were either dead or had “low battery” warnings) the unit was very nice. If you’re not super picky and you want a BEACHFRONT place to stay, this is a perfect unit for up to 6 people (7 if you put one on the sleeper sofa).
Manager response:
Hello Claudia, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!

Ocean view throughout the condo. Easy access to beach.
Carol B. Jul 2021
Loved the view. Accommodations were good.
Amber G. Jul 2021
The view and large balcony was amazing. The condo had plenty of room for my family of 5 and two friends! We spent our days on the beach and in the pool! My kids enjoyed all the board games the condo had to offer. My only complaint is the elevator was broke and we Never saw anyone working on it. After talking to a few people one that lives there, sounds like it has been out for awhile. That was very inconvenient with 3 small kids and a husband with a bad back.
Gwenda P. Jul 2021
The unit was awesome. I got stuck in the elevator until I got my daughter to come out and push the button to open the door. The elevator was turned off so the stairs was rough. Dreading taking everthing down 3 flights of stairs!

Julie L. Jun 2021
This was our first vacation at Gulf Shores. Our condo was in a perfect location, with beach access steps away, and a wrap-around balcony that we enjoyed. The furniture was very stained and old, but the condo itself was clean. Overall, we had a good stay there, and we would definitely return to Gulf Shores for another vacation!
Sabra E. Jun 2021
The location and beach access are great!!
Terrie p. Sep 2020
We truly enjoyed our time here. We love the outside deck and the veiw. Having all the convenience of home was wonderful. We will be back.
Katie M. Aug 2020
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unit and would recommend it to anyone. The views were great. We had plenty of space, and it was a nice and quiet complex.
Heather B. Aug 2020
We absolutely loved our stay. It was clean and right on the beach. We will definitely stay here again
Stephanie H. Jul 2020
I took a group of clients for work and this was a great condo. Clean, Nice and loved that every room had a door to the balcony. Will definitely be back.
Anna B. Jul 2020
this place was such a great condo for a little family getaway. it was clean and cool upon our arrival and its location is fantastic, right on the beach with a fantastic view from the balcony. the beds were comfy and there were plenty of towels and pillows and all kitchen things that we could use!
there were a few things that could be improved though. the door handle in the living room to the balcony was broken, there were some blinds that were torn down and randomly shoved in a closet and the air filter should have been changed prior to us getting there. other that that it was amazing!! we will def be back
Barbara S. Jul 2020
I loved how quiet it was. Most of the time our family was the only one in the pool. It is very close to the ocean. The elevator was right at my front door. We will stay here again.
Blake S. Jun 2020
This was the perfect place if you have 6-8 people. Every bedroom has a good view and access to the balcony. The location is easy to get to. It was clean upon arrival. You are literally less than a minute’s walk from being on the beach when staying here. You can tell the owners take pride in their home at the beach. If it is available when we plan a trip next year, this will be our first choice.
Clara H. Jun 2020
We enjoyed our stay and the condo was very nice. However, the door handle for the sliding glass door leading to the balcony was broken when we arrived which made it very difficult to enter and exit. Additionally, the WiFi inexplicably quit working about 24 hours into our stay and was never fixed. I contacted the provided help/support email and phone number multiple times during my stay, but nothing was ever fixed.
Manager response:
Hi, Clara! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your feedback. We sincerely apologize we were slow to respond due to such a busy time period. The sliding glass door has been fully repaired, and the internet provider is now back up and running. Thank you!
Tom D. Jun 2020
Very clean inside and out and I’m very picky! Paula Dean cookware was a dream! Plenty of large utensils to cook with! I actually enjoyed cooking on vacation! Large refrigerator! Plenty of seating inside and out! Loved the wrap around balcony! Will definitely be staying here again!
Angela B. Oct 2019
Great property! Just as pictured! We loved our stay!
Rhonda K. Oct 2019
Can't say enough nice things ! Perfect Location, comfortable, great kitchen and the Balcony was EVERYTHING!
Mary M. Sep 2019
The views were great from every room. We loved the sunsets and watching the dolphins chase schools of fish. Beds were comfortable, air conditioner was much appreciated in the heat, kitchen well stocked for the cooking we did. Great quiet location (off-season is the perfect time here) and the parking underneath the building was appreciated. Easy access to the condo due to proximity to elevator. Plenty of seating in den and for dining. Really couldn't have asked for anything more. Appreciate that Vacasa doesn't have so many add-on fees that can really drive up the price.
Craig R. Aug 2019
Loved the home! All the extras (games and books) was a nice added touch. The view was amazing! Short walk to the Beach and all entertainment was less than a 15 minute drive. We will definitely be back Summer of 2020
Lisa H. Aug 2019
The views are awesome! Great location! Pool was nice and cool!
Barbara S. Aug 2019
The view, the sounds of the gulf, watching the dolphins swim by, all contribute to relaxation. Walking straight out to the beach is what we were looking for. The pool was an added plus.
The kids loved going over to the lagoon to fish each evening.
Would love to come back. And soon!!

Convenience
Cathy V. Jun 2019
I seriously don't want to put this review out so we can keep this gem all to ourselves. Our family has been having family reunions on the gulf for over 40 years. This condo by far was our favorite. You actually feel like you are on the beach from the living room, ceiling to floor sliders on two sides, beach view galore. Wrap around incredible deck with high top chairs. Third floor is AMAZING!!!! So much light and the unit is precious. You will want for nothing, everything is here. Beach chairs, floats, fully loaded kitchen. We were so sad to leave our little slice of paradise.
Sheila R. Jun 2019
We had a wrap around balcony had the best view of the ocean everyday clean and roomy we will surely go back
Vanessa S. Jun 2019
The condo was beautifully decorated and has Gulf front views. The owners have thought of everything! There are beach toys and even books and games to entertain while indoors.
