My 2nd time staying in the penthouse #1. Love how the living room, dining room and kitchen are open. We had a blast playing games at the huge table in the evenings after dinner. The view from the balcony was absolutely gorgeous, it was big enough for our group of 6 to have morning coffee and evening drinks. There are 3 elevators for the lighthouse condos, they are fast so the wait was always short. We did have an issue with the hot water in one of the bedrooms, but it was resolved quickly after I reported it. I would definitely recommend the Penthouse #1.

Our family has taken a beach vacation for several years. This was our 3rd time to stay in Lighthouse Penthouse #1. We love everything about it….the ocean view from the balcony, easy access to the beach, the amenities and much more. You won’t be disappointed!!

The structure a d grounds do not do this unit justice. The unit was massive. 5 bedroom 4 baths, 2 suites
Kitchen was well stocked, lots of storage thru out for beach equipment and travel items. Large entryway with benches. The beaches entry art needs updating with usable hooks for towels and such. The balcony is massive, we looked forward to it but unfortunately we weren't able to use it due to updating. The salt water indoor pool sprung a leak and we weren't able to use it. The zero gravity pool was unusable and a hottub beside it was broken
We had use of 1 hot tub. The main pool, salt water pool for 2 days and the gym and sauna. The unit needs some general repairs to cabinetry but is comfortable, clean and offers a magnificent view of the gulf.
Hi, Lacy! We're sorry to read you had some disappointments during your visit. The TV stand drawer is being addressed, and the kitchen cabinets are brand new. Unfortunately, the other issues are the HOA's responsibility, but we will make them aware of your comments. Thank you!

The beds and all were nice, there was a few things broken but really that didn't bother us. Beautiful view on the balcony love being able to see everything. Will most likely book again.
Heather, thank you for reviewing your stay, we're pleased you enjoyed it and would stay here again-- we'd love to have you! We apologize for any areas that you felt needed some extra TLC and we want to note that since your stay, repairs and updates have been made. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to hosting you again.

We really enjoyed our time at the Lighthouse Penthouse! It was perfect for our extended family spring break adventure. The thoughtful decor was a really nice touch and we were very comfortable with 8 adults and 4 kids. The wraparound balcony offered incredible views. There was early morning construction work on the balcony during our stay, which was less than ideal, but also out of anyone's control and noted when making the reservation. The kitchen is equipped with anything you might need and the walk in pantry with extra mini fridges was a really nice bonus. The building amenities were great and the location couldn't have been better. Would definitely recommend this rental for your large group or family. We would love to return!

This was our 4th annual family vacation to Gulf Shores and our second year to stay at The Lighthouse Penthouse #1. It is the perfect location for easy beach access, restaurants and shopping. The amenities are fabulous. Kitchen has everything, great view and comfortable living space for our large family. Plan to book again next year!!

We enjoyed our stay at Lighthouse. We found most things wonderful except the twin size beds. Adequate room, great view, lovely balcony and outdoor furnishings, well stocked kitchen (waffle makers and blenders were definitely perks!) The master bedroom was a little warmer that most rooms so the box fan, kept in the closet, came in handy. The closets were full of hidden gems such as beach canapés , ice chest, chairs, beach toys, balls, games and rafts! These owners definitely aimed to please their guest!

Very large condo with lots of comfortable seating. Had a wonderful time with the family.
Bob C.Feb 2020
Beautiful place with all we need. Plenty of beds and bathrooms. A table for 8 so we can slide our quarters across the table to pay off the better golfer's that day. Great courses within a short drive.

The condo was spacious and lovely. We were an extended family of twelve, two grandparents, children and grandchildren. We had everything we needed for the full week we were there. (The large crockpot may need to be replaced soon.)

The TV in bulk room did not work. Reported but never fixed. Light bulbs burned out in bathroom. No bulbs to fix
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.
