Cleanliness, convenience, privacy, new docks and boat ramp. (Need a long hose at ramp to rinse off jet skis though)

Nice little condo for an anniversary getaway! We loved the layout and updates. The beach was a short walk across the street. The only complaints we had were the large amounts dog hair all over the couch and floors (I swept up a bunch everyday) and only one elevator works for the whole property (three buildings). Other than those things, we would definitely recommend this unit.
We appreciate your review, Steven. The elevators are not working because of the hurricane; we are waiting for them to get repaired. An extra cleaning has been scheduled for the home to address the dog hair. Thank you for staying with us!

My husband and I love Gulf Shores and this was our 4th time staying at Surf and Raquet Club where we have stayed in various units. This time though we weren't 100% happy with the condo. There does need to be some minor repairs done to the unit to make it comfortable for the guest. One of the main reasons to have a condo is to cook and do laundry while there. Our washing machine was broken, first time we did laundry there was water on the floor, which meant we didn't have the use of the machine for the rest of the trip. At first we didn't have a craft in the coffee maker, so we had to improvise to make coffee. When we called Vacasa, they did fix that by the end of the day. The back sliding door doesn't close fully and you can't change the speed of the fan in the main room. Really the only way I notice most of this stuff is because we have stayed at 3 other units in the complex and didn't have these issue. But as I said, we love Gulf Shores and this complex is a great location for beach access and the other amenities.
Hi, Michelle! We are pleased to let you know the washing machine has been replaced. Thank you for staying with us!

I stay at the surf and racquet club was outstanding in our 401 a condo was so awesome because the view was amazing on both the Bay and Beachside. We could go out on either balcony and see both sides of the water the day in the ocean. The location was awesome. The rooms were clean and very inviting and very well-stocked. We will be back hopefully to stay in that same room

Mike P.Jun 2020
I love having two balconies! Cozy, clean place for 1-4 people. Good price compared to other condos in the area. Towel rack still broken a year later though - need a better repair person! I also fixed the ceiling fanspeed pull chain it was stuck on high, your welcome! I’d rent again though.

This was my first time to the gulf shores. I will definitely be back. This resort was beautiful. it was so much better than the pictures even show. The fishing piers out over the lagoon were such a nice touch. I would love to stay in the exact place again.

We loved it!!! Thank you for letting us stay!!!
Kristi C.Jun 2019
I loved this place. It was perfect for two adults and two children. An easy walk to the beach, a really nice swimming pool and you can fish without leaving the property. It had everything we needed. Brought our beach towels, bought some groceries and good to go. I will definitely be back.
Chelsie K.May 2019
This place was everything we needed! We generally stay right on the beach but this place had a great view of the beach and the bay! It was clean and had everything you needed! It’s also close to downtown but far enough away to be peaceful! I would definitely recommend this place to others! And it’s a great value!
Jennifer B.May 2019
