The 4 bedrooms were beautiful, clean and a gorgeous view of the ocean from the balcony. Living area comfortable.. Extremely close to beach.. However, we were so looking forward to using the heated indoor pool and hot tub. There is no heated pool as displayed in pictures and the hot tub DID NOT work. Only 1 elevator was working. There were no cereal spoons, no pitcher, no pot holders and this resulted in 2 burns on my hand. Could have used a dish rag in kitchen, just had a sponge. No extra trash bags. The Teflon is all scratched off on skillets. The jacuzzi did not work in master bath, extremely disappointing. My top sheet had spots on it on 1 side. I didn't use. The light with fan in master room did
Not come on. The carpet under dining room table is curled up and I have MS, I almost fell but was able to catch myself. I would suggest updating your pictures of the indoor pool. I was wanting to do my exercises in the heated pool, very discouraged. I feel I was only getting a part of what we were promised. We loved the area but would have liked these needs met. Could we get a credit for a future trip due to the false advertising? Thanks

The room was just as pictured, and we really enjoyed our stay there! Super convenient to everything we wanted to do. I've been coming to Gulf Shores since I was a child, and I would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful condo! The condo is very well kept; tastefully decorated throughout with beautiful views. This is my second time booking via Vacasa & I will definitely use for future vacations. Upon arriving I received a call & the morning after check in someone text to make sure all expectations were met. One of my best girls trip!

We loved the view from the balcony the morning red sky was beautiful to look at while sipping coffee and everyone hanging out at night listening to the ocean waves was so peaceful. The condo is beautiful and it was great to have all the bedrooms/bathroom for each couple to have their privacy.

Great views, great beds and nicely stocked kitchen essentials. The unit itself is very spacious and nicely decorated. However, only 1 working elevator this week. The master bathroom urgently needs a plumber unless you enjoy sticking your hand in the commode tank to manually flush it, every time. We contacted the company on the 2nd day of our week to try to resolve this and initially they were interested but by mid week there were no further responses and no repaired plumbing.
Manager response:
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. Our local manager as made sure this was repaired. We appreciate guest’s preferences as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting your next stay!

Condo was decorated very nicely. Pretty well stocked with kitchen essentials. Had a few issues with toilets, dryer and bathtub.

This condo had everything needed to enjoy our wonderful time at the beach! It was fully accommodating with everything you can imagine. The view was spectacular.... the beaches weren't crowded and it was close to everything and everywhere we wanted to go. Couldn't have been a better place to stay.
Carlton T. Jul 2021
Loved the condo, and especially the location, next to last condo on the east end before Gulf State Park. Some maintenance issues that need to be addressed, only one of the 2 elevators in service.

Accurate description of condo. Clean, spacious, and easy check in and check out.
Penny B. Jul 2020
The condo is exactly as described. The condo had a lot of space and was furnished with everything you will need including beach chairs. The property manager was amazing, There was only three clothes hangers and no hairdryer. She went to target and purchased both items and brought them to us. I would definitely recommend this condo.

We’ve stayed in this condo three times and enjoy the stay. It is spacious with beautiful views. The beds are comfortable as well as the living room furniture and outdoor furniture. The kids enjoy having a small balcony shared between 2 of the bedrooms, There is a stretch of beach to the East where there are no condos at this time and therefore is not crowded. It’s a great place to walk.

Great experience and great staff.
Terry G. Oct 2019
No excess problems. Washing machine was extremely noisy but at least it worked the entire time and not like last year where we had to go to a laundry mat and wash clothes until the machine could be replaced
Patricia H. Aug 2019
We love coming to the Collonades. This year, our unit was spacious and clean. I did not give a 10 due to the fact that silverware and cooking items were very limited and there were 7 of us and only seating for 4 at the table. We had to use chairs from the balcony for additional seating.
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world-class service.

The condo was very nice. Drawbacks: broken ice maker, slow draining tubs, dirty carpet in master bath.
