Very pleased to smell bleach upon entering the room - was very clean. The room was well furnished and the AC kept it very cool - even had to turn the thermostat up the first night! The elevators were acting up but property management was on top of it. Will stay here again! Vacasa did everything they promised!

Diane R. Apr 2022
Loved the condo, beautiful view, spacious, clean and well appointed. The only pool was closed all week due to sand but was really resurfacing, big disappointment. Otherwise lovely stay.
Kristi D. Apr 2022
We enjoyed our stay at San Carlos 1808. It was the perfect location right on the beach. The condo was plenty enough space for 4 guests. I wouldn’t say the kitchen was fully stocked with things needed. There are also a few things that need repair in the condo. The TV in the main bedroom did not work. It would not connect to be able to watch TV. The door to the main bedroom was falling off the wall. The curtains in the living room and main bedroom were coming off the tracks.
The toaster in the kitchen only worked when you held the button down the whole time.

Over all great stay and the condo was nice. It just needs a little TLC
Manager response:
We appreciate you choosing to stay with us, Kristi. We're disappointed to read you weren't completely satisfied with your accommodations. The property manager has scheduled a walk-through to compile a list of maintenance and inventory needs. Hopefully we can host you again for a perfect stay!

Everything was great from the moment I used the keyless entry to stepping into the condo and finding the sweet handwritten note. Everything is exactly as pictured and more. Location was perfect and secure,view was spectacular, and it was sparkling clean and quiet. I absolutely cannot wait to be able to book again as this will be my new home away from home.

Kayleigh T. Jul 2020
We stayed for 2 nights and it was truly a wonderful time! The condo offers an amazing view, a great location close to everything, the beach is not a far walk at all and the pool is very nice as well.
We enjoyed how the rooms looked, they were ascetically pleasing and comfortable for the 4 adults and 20 month old toddler that were included in our party. We have no real complaints besides the garbage disposal not working and having a truly foul smell coming from it everytime we ran water in the sink and the bathroom in the king bedroom also smelled foul. While some things were unpleasant, in the future we would definitely still visit these condos. It is really hard to beat the price, view and close proximity to anything and everything you might need!
Tammy M. Jul 2020
The room was beautiful and the view was too. We had a problem getting the living room door open that led to balcony but customer service got someone out there quickly to fix it. There was a metal bar that you had to step over either going out or in at both balcony doors. I was a little nervous about my parents forgetting and falling. That would be my only complaint about our stay.
Stephen S. May 2020
Wonderful trip, wonderful place, top notch!!
Mary G. Oct 2019
The beach was beautiful from the balcony. The weather was amazing and the food was great!

Great time of year to visit Gulf Shores. Condo 1808 was clean and offered all the amenities we needed
Brian V. Jul 2019
Had to stop in the realty office and pick up pool wrist bands and parking permits. Booked condo with another family member and they received everything in the mail prior to leaving for vacation. Condo was clean although the bed sheet had a very large old stain on it and the bed spread also had a couple of spots on it that looked recent. We washed both before we went to bed.
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.
Pam M. Jul 2019
