We loved the location! Roomy condo, with great views. Large bar area with ice maker! Pool was never crowded.

This home was super nice. We only had minor issues and they were here in no time to assist. (rental company). We got to meet the rep for the property and she was super helpful and so sweet. Everything in this home is beautiful. The view is from the balcony and the master bed is EVERYTHING!
Megan S. Jun 2022
Our family loved this place. A few things need replaced.....doorbell, master bedroom mattress, kitchen chair & finish the paint job. The refrigerator was apparently messing up an a guy came to fix it but just helped himself right in, which we didnt like. We had small children & young girls....couldve became a big issue. No phone call, email or message about it either. Overall nice place.
Manager response:
Megan, thank you for taking the time to review your stay, we’re so pleased to hear your family loved our home! We apologize for any issues you experienced with the refrigerator and want to note that a new refrigerator has been installed. We’re also sorry that our maintenance team arrived to look at the refrigerator during your stay and we regret any inconvenience. The doorbell is under the care of the HOA and we have shared your comments with the local manager so they can be relayed to the appropriate parties. We enjoyed having you as our guest and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again.

The place was very clean and beautiful, the only negative thing I have to say is the jacuzzi in the master bath did not work.
Manager response:
We appreciate you leaving your review with us, Tracy. It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed your visit. The property manager has scheduled an inspection of the jacuzzi so we can determine if repairs are needed. Thank you!
John M. Apr 2022
Many problems with condo. Would not rent until all 12 things are corrected. Water from upstairs entering unit.

Manager response:
Hi, Henry! The doorbell, lights, and stools are scheduled for maintenance. We appreciate you bringing these items to our attention and hope to host you again!
Susan Z. Jan 2022
I loved the size and location of this condo. The living space was big enough for all 8 of us. There are somethings that need to be addressed and that is why I did not give it 5 stars. I loved how convent it was to get to the beach. I did wish the pool was heated and by looking at the pictures the pool looked enclosed but was not. I would definitely stay there again.
Gregory K. Oct 2021
The condo was fantastic. All the beds were very comfortable. They are working on the building and you hear noise, however, that is not Vacasa's fault. I would have given a 5 star review but there was not enough glasses. Also one of the bowls were chipped and should have been thrown away. Upon arrival the condo was very clean. Our future travels we will consider booking again.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, Gregory, we are pleased to hear your party had a wonderful vacation! We sincerely appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention, though we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused your party. We have passed this feedback along to our property manager to review and address as needed. We look forward to welcoming you back for another getaway!
Bonnie A. Sep 2021
Gorgeous unit. A woman's dream. Each of us had our own bedroom and bath. View was breathtaking.
Deborah C. Jul 2021
The room was very spacious, plenty of room for my family.
Steve L. Jun 2021
We stayed at his property on the 18th floor for two weeks. Location is excellent however the building and apartment are still recovering from the hurricane almost a year ago. One of the two elevators in the building is inoperable and there are no plans to repair it before replacing in approximately five months. This makes waiting for an elevator excruciatingly long. The apartment itself is spacious and well appointed. There are however a couple of places that show that it is still being repaired from the storm. We had water leaking from the ceiling in one area and a strange odor in another area. The crowds in the city were overwhelming. 1.5 to 2 hour weights for dinner establishments were common. It was nice to have a well equipped kitchen to fend for ourselves. A point of note is that the local representative for Vacasa was Excellent and her response to any issue that we had. From a broken coffee maker to water dripping from the ceiling, she was very attentive and responded quickly.
KRISTIN P. Jun 2021
My kids are now adults and the family has expanded. Great access to Gulf Shores Park and their trails and liked being at a quieter end of the beach. 18th floor was a bit high, but the working elevator was pretty quick. The area has recovered quickly from Hurricane Sally.
David S. Sep 2020
Check in and out was easy! The beds and furniture were comfortable and clean! Great views and short walk to the beach!
Paula D. Aug 2020
Traveled with 4 generations!! The 4 bedroom/4 bath is perfect. The bedroom doors are heavy, no shared walls.... very private. The kitchen is adequately stocked with glasses, cookware, dishes and utensils. We enjoyed the ice maker and bar.....separate from the kitchen. The view is simply spectacular!!
We did have issues initially (housekeeping, dryer was broken) but Vacasa was wonderful, going above and beyond to take care of our concerns. We would definitely recommend this space!!!!
Alyssa B. Aug 2020
We had the most amazing time here! We enjoyed the beautiful view each morning and the place was so clean. We will 100% be back!
Donald R. Jul 2020
We really enjoyed this condo. It was nicely equipped, and clean on arrival — the floors were still wet from getting mopped! The beach wasn’t crowded, despite a large condo next door. I would highly recommend this unit, and hope it’s available next year as well!
Lyndon C. Jun 2020
Beautiful views. Plenty of room. All 8 of us were pleased with the entire condo. The beds were comfortable. The condo was very clean and inviting. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Would definitely stay at the Colonades again.
Laurie H. May 2020
The balcony was amazing! We all had a fantastic time. This was our first time to gulf shores and I’m sure we’ll be back!
Valentina S. May 2020
Great place. Beautiful views. And most importantly clean!
Cheryl F. Jan 2020
We loved this condo! It was clean, quiet and right on the beach. The deck had an awesome view up and down the beach and there was plenty of seating. The indoor pool and hot tub were basic but the water was warm. We were not provided parking passes and the agent was very responsive when we called. Someone dropped the passes off within an hour. We also had an issue with the sliding door from the master not working and they came right over to check it out. Unfortunately it wasn’t fixed until the last day. Beach condos we have rented at other locations have included some beach items such as towels, chairs, umbrellas, coolers but none were provided here. Even so, we would definitely rent here again.
KALEB P. Dec 2019
Great floor plan, nice bedding. Was clean and well decorated!
Sarah H. Sep 2019
The kitchen was not well stocked. No serving bowls so served out of pans Could not adjust flow of water in shower. Everything else was perfect
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.
Danyale B. Jul 2019
Had a few issues inside the condo.

A few problems but they were handled immediately upon request.
Julie L. Jul 2018
Great living space. Nice pool and easy access to beach!
Donna O. Jun 2018
We have used both Kaiser and Meyer over the years in the Gulf Shores area and Kaiser units are cleaner and always go over and beyond making our check in and checkout most efficient. I will always refer my friends to Kaiser because they seem to care about their customers. Thankyou
