Gulf-front condo with resort pools, hot tub, fitness room & beach access

Enjoy breathtaking views from the large, corner balcony of Crystal Shores West 201, a beachfront escape with a wonderfully updated kitchen and a stunning position overlooking the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. In this prime location less than a mile west of Highway 59, you'll be treated to fantastic shared amenities - including multiple pools, a hot tub, a sauna, a game room, and a gym - to enjoy when you're not lounging on the white-sand beach.

Crystal Shores West is a Gulf-front property with direct beach access, enviably located less than a mile from the bustling hub of Highway 59 (home to such family-friendly attractions as Waterville USA, Pirate's Island Adventure Golf, and the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo). You'll be two miles west of beautiful Gulf State Park, six miles south of the Craft Farms Golf Club, and seven miles southwest of the shops, restaurants, and amphitheater at The Wharf. Spend your days fishing, boating, and taking long walks on the beach, and your evenings dining nearby.


You must be 25 years or older to rent this property.

We've stayed in this unit before and always enjoy it. Beautiful location, well-appointed and very comfortable. We will be back for sure!

Crystal Shores West 201 was not what I expected it to be. The view of the gulf was its most rewarding point. The rest of the condo needs work.
Andrew U. Oct 2022
Very clean and well maintained room! Great beach front condo and view of the gulf! Definitely well worth the $$$
Jan V. Oct 2022
This place was incredible, we booked because we wanted a 3 bed unit that was ocean front, had a pool, and was clean. It was all of those things and more! It was extremely spacious, with the wrap around porch you could get a nice breeze going and hear the gulf all the time. It was perfect for kids, they ran in and outside nonstop and LOVED taking the elevator up and down from the unit to the pool or beach. The tile floors everywhere were nicer for keeping clean with the sand and dirt. It had a pack n play in the closet and also two beach chairs and an umbrella so it was perfect for us having flown in and not packing all of those things. The kitchen was fully stocked for cooking. The indoor pool was fantastic on the high wind days where the beach and outdoor pool were not as pleasant. It was close to everything so easy to go out or stay in. If you’re looking for a great place on the gulf shores with kids, I highly recommend!

Brian & Angie P. Jun 2022
The balcony view was outstanding! The seating was comfortable inside and out. Beds comfortable and as presented on VRBO site! Would recommend this condo to anyone. Thank you!
Justin H. Apr 2022
We loved our stay at the condo. It was two families the condo was well furnished would definitely consider staying there again. Our only complaint would be the patio furniture. We like to sit out on the balcony but there wasn't enough seating. If they could add a little more patio furniture it would have been perfect.
Manager response:
Justin, thank you for providing your valuable feedback, as we use your comments as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting you again.

Our whole family (10) stayed a week and everything we needed was there (except food). Great views and great place
Sharon G. Jan 2022
This condo is exactly as stated... super nice and extremely clean with amazing views in all directions. It has everything you would need or want during your stay. We will definitely book again! I was very impressed with how Vacasa checked in on us after we arrived to make sure the condo was to our satisfaction... Kudos to their staff!
Debbie D. Jan 2022
Beautiful home in the perfect location. The view was breathtaking. The private beach area, to the pools, jacuzzi, rec room, and sauna. Kitchen had everything anyone could need or want for cooking. I cannot wait to return in a few months.
Francis S. Dec 2021
This condo was just beautiful. Love the balcony got to sit and drink my coffee in the early morning watching people. Just loved it.
Janice H. Oct 2021
The unit was exactly what our family and friends needs for a beach getaway. The kitsch was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans. We loved the table and chairs on the balcony which we enjoyed morning comfy and for afternoon view of the sunset. We will
plan to come again. Thanks.
Ronald R. Oct 2021
The condo was awesome and the view was amazing!! Will definitely try to book this condo for our next family vacation!
Heather D. Oct 2021
Nice spacious condo in a great location. The unit was clean and well furnished. Didn’t visit the pool or hot tub but both looked really nice.
Rae A. Oct 2021
This is a wonderful condo with everything we needed. I could live on the balcony. We had beautiful sunrises in the morning, but had to go out front to see the sunsets, but they were beautiful too. We love hearing the tide come in at night when we went to bed, splashing up on the beautiful white sand. This condo was bigger than we needed, but met all my check marks for a perfect place to be. The only negative thing was the people above us were smoking which is not allowed on the premises and it drifted into our condo. Other than that it was a perfect September vacation.
Cheryl F. Sep 2021
Love the layout and furnishings. The location, view and amenities were perfect. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay again if visiting this area again. Highly recommend.
Kayla C. Aug 2021
This condo was perfect for us for the week we were there. The views were absolutely amazing. It was great waking up to the view of the ocean. The condo had everything that we needed and was very spacious for 6 of us. Would definitely stay here again!

Lisa S. Jan 2021
Best view we've ever had when staying at the Gulf!
3 bathrooms for 4 women was also a big plus!
KWRT H. Dec 2020
The condo is simply beautiful and everything so comfy. The couches and chairs are all very comfortable to sit and watch tv/movies. The bed is more comfortable than mine at home. The kitchen had everything I needed for my stay. The amenities are great. And the view. Wow the view is amazing. The parking space designated in the deck is great to have when it’s dark or rainy. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will definitely be back. I’ve already shared with all my friends that they need to check this place out!! Perfectly amazing.
KWRT H. Dec 2020
What a beautiful condo you have! We enjoyed it so much! The complex was great as well and the pool could not be more perfect for kids! We will definitely be back.
Lora P. Dec 2020
This property is so great we have already booked it again for next year. Great location on beach, beautiful interior, very well-kept. And the Vacasa personnel were very professional and attentive. Best condo we've ever stayed at in Gulf Shores!
Anne P. Nov 2020
Thoroughly enjoyed our fall getaway to Saltwater Therapy! The condo is spacious, well equipped, and beautifully decorated. The highlight of the condo is the wrap-around balcony overlooking the beach. We were able to enjoy the ocean breeze and sounds of the surf throughout our visit! We look forward to many more visits to Gulf Shores for some “saltwater therapy”!

We stayed in this condo in October when we took our twins and their friends to celebrate their 16th birthday. Beach chair rentals were available and the pool was open. The home was well furnished and easily accessible. We were very pleased. However 2 days before our trip I received an email that our trip had been canceled as the rental was unavailable due to hurricane damage. I immediately phoned vacasa. Initially all the rep offered was to help us find another rental or give us credit for a future trip. I was livid because they a. Should have already been aware if the condo was damaged in the hurricane from weeks earlier. B. Should have phoned me instead of emailing. C. Should have offered to offset cost of a different rental bc it was their error.
I insisted on speaking with a supervisor. She was very kind and apologized for the error, but couldn't do anything else to help besides book us the one Remaining condo in our budget, although it was not on the beach. She did promise to look into the problem though. Within about 14 hours she called me back to report that our originally booked condo WAS available with no damage. She then put us back into that condo. Apparently Vacasa was confused and had accidentally canceled our trip. Im very grateful to Stevi for finding and fixing the issues. She saved the day for us!
Manager response:
Thank you so much for your recent stay at Crystal Shores West #201. We are sorry for the misinformation regarding the availability of the condo. Great to know that you were able to continue with the original reservation and that the condo was accomodating for the stay. Getting information on the hurricane damage in regards to buildings, specific units and the surrounding infrastructure was a challenge due to road closures, travel bans, evacuations, and the inability to audit inventory. As we have many rental properties along the Gulf Shore, this, unfortunately, did affect pre-existing reservations in some cases. We appreciate your understanding and thank you so much for leaving this review and feedback. We look forward to hosting future stays!
Leslie H. Oct 2020
This condo is spacious and beautifully appointed. The only drawback was the elevators which were a little iffy after Hurricane Sally. But since we were only on the second floor, we were able to use the stairs. Nearly everything we needed was provided. The owner graciously supplied towels, beach chairs, soap, toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, laundry detergent. I hope to stay here again and again!
Shelia W. Oct 2020
Condo is great for families or for sharing since each bedroom has it’s own bath. The kitchen was so well stocked.
Ryan G. Aug 2020
We have stayed at CSW many times and this unit was by far the dirtiest. We had to clean it ourselves after the cleaning company. The unit is laid out very nicely and has great views. Love the complex and amenities.
Manager response:
Hi Ryan, thank you for staying with us! We are happy to hear you enjoyed the home and location! We're so sorry for the disappointing experience during your visit. We will follow-up with our housekeeping team to ensure future cleans will be completed to our standard. We hope to have the chance to impress you in the future!
Rebecca H. Aug 2020
The location was excellent. The view was awesome. There was enough room for my whole family. The bathrooms were nice,
Tina B. Jul 2020
Great place to stay, very nice and clean. We will definitely stay again.
Tess M. Jul 2020
We loved the location and the condo. Everything was very nice and well designed. We will definitely be back.
Rachel M. Jul 2020
I was so pleased with this condo. The rooms were exactly as described. This condo was perfect for multiple families since there were 3 full baths.The master bedroom also has a huge bathroom and walk in closet, which was great for storing luggage. I also loved the walk-in shower in the master bathroom. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed to cook dinners in. The balcony wrapped around the side so it was very big. I would definitely stay in this condo again.
Mary G. Jun 2020
Loved the view from the condo! Easy access to the beach and chair service. Wonderful beach theme. All the comfiness of home.
Barbara W. Jun 2020
It was a beautiful condo. The freezer had a few issues and wouldn’t keep the ice frozen, but that is the ONLY issue. Everything else was perfect!
Susan M. May 2020
Beautiful view. Comfortable. Would go again!
Jean D. Mar 2020
The location was great and the home was roomy and comfortable for 2 adults and 4 teens
William H. Nov 2019
The Staff went over and beyond to make us feel comfortable and found a similar rental for our use since the original rental was deemed unusable due to maintenance two days before our arrival. Special THANKS to Amanda for all she did!
Janice P. Oct 2019
The condo was perfect. It had everything we needed for the perfect family vacation. You guys thought of everything. My family was very impressed.
Cheryl R. Sep 2019
Toilet in master suite was whistling all night freezer leaked water on the floor from the ice maker bring jammed up in the back. I’m hoping got the price we paid that there could be some type of compensation we called Friday about it they came and it was still making noise called Saturday and it didn’t fix anything called again sat evening and no one showed till we were ready to check out Sunday morning otherwise beautiful condo and views
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.
Mary G. Sep 2019
