This was my golf groups 8th year of vacationing at Gulf Shores while staying at the Lighthouse. The accommodations are great and the staff is friendly and helpful. We will be back again next year.

Rose H. Nov 2021
The view was amazing.
Manager response:

Three other couples joined us for a week vacation in this condo. We had rented others in the past but none could come to this one. Aside from the fantastic view from 19 floors up, we were stunned by the condition of the apartment, everything functioned as it should. We honestly have nothing bad to say about our stay other than that we hope to be back there again next year!

Space of home and the view
Tammy C. Sep 2021
The view and location was perfect. The condo itself was very nice, but the patio area and furniture needs attention. And yes I would love to stay at this penthouse #3 again. Once again thanks for having us.
Betty M. Aug 2021
The condo was very nice but need to pay more attention to the cleaning,floors were dirty and sandy,patio furniture needs replaced. But other than that things were great. Lots of room for 11 or 12 women and 4 bathrooms was fantastic. I will stay there again
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Betty! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are disappointed to hear the home was not up to the high standard of guest satisfaction that we hold ourselves to. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager to address. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to hosting you again!

Penthouse 3 was absolutely beautiful. The Penthouse was centrally located to restaurants, shopping, and attractions. The view and access of the beach and pools were fabulous. Our family had a wonderful stay and we hope to return soon.
Julie S. Jun 2021
Lots of space but furniture was very dirty bathrooms need updating
Christopher B. Jun 2021
The view and location are amazing. Parking was limited to 2 cars, but it was easy to find parking for those 2 cars. Place was very clean and we loved everything about it. We would come back in a heart beat.
Regenia B. Jun 2021
Some things are dated, and need to be replaced. Overall this is a great location and nice, clean condo. However, we did have major construction going on during our stay and were not able to use balcony. If this would bother someone you may want to call before coming. We were only notified upon arrival. I would rent this place again!
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Regenia! We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback, and we apologize for any disruption the construction posed during your visit. The complex is undergoing renovations to recover from Hurricane Sally, this information is noted in the confirmation email provided at the time of booking. We look forward to hosting you again!

This condo was perfect for our girls' trip! It was very spacious, had plenty of seating, and was very clean. The view from the balcony was beautiful. Vacasa was great to work with, as well!
Kristi B. Mar 2021

Although we enjoyed the spaciousness of this condo, the balcony chairs are in need of replacement as 3 out of 5 chairs springs were broken and chaise lounge chairs had broken straps. Also had to tighten screws down on dining room chairs. Couches and chairs could use a good cleaning also.. Other than that a great view and roomy rooms and kitchen. Always enjoy the people and area this time of year.
Manager response:
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your feedback. The chairs will be replaced, and we are scheduling a cleaning of the couch and chairs as soon as we can. Thank you, Christine!
Susan S. Sep 2020
Great place to stay! Penthouse 3 was very nice. Only issue was master shower in bed to left is living room drained slow and water built up in shower and there were only 4 coffee cups in a 10 person condo. Other than that would definitely stay there again
Manager response:
Hi, Susan! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and wish you had called so we could have addressed your disappointments for you. The shower has been cleared, and we have purchased more coffee cups. Thank you!
Misty G. Jul 2020

Great location and views of the gulf. Very spacious...
Adam M. Mar 2020
We had a great time and really enjoyed this Huge Condo. It was especially nice having the room when the beaches were closed due to Covid19. We absolutely loved everything about it. The kitchen was phenomenal as well. We will def stay here again.
Heather G. Mar 2020
The place is big and spacious and the views are awesome!

Just as Beautiful as the Picture , spacious with great view ,easy check in / out and friendly staff , although the shower in the master was clogged and Jets didn't work in Jacuzzi , the penthouse is nice , with those things fixed we, would book again
Manager response:
Hi, Natasha! The shower drain is taken care of, and we are repairing the breaker that trips when the jetted tub is in use. Please feel free to call about these things during your stay!
Steve N. Sep 2019
Two small issues with the condo: 1. There were only 4 coffee mugs and 3 of them were cracked and/or chipped (we had 7 adults in the unit). We bought disposable cups for our morning coffee. 2. One of the dining chairs was not usable because it was VERY unstable
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.
Carson M. Aug 2019
It was very spacious for our large family. It was right on the beach and both pools was very nice.
Brian K. Aug 2019
Nice place for a group of 10. Suggestion would be for owners of this unit to replace the queen bed with bunk beds for younger children. Had a great time
Wes H. Jul 2019
I would have given this a 10, but our condo had a couple of issues.
