Being right on the beach was really nice.
Seth J. Jul 2022
The condo is in a great location, and the beach is great in this area and not overly crowded like some of the bigger sky scrapers. However, this room could use a few updates. The beds are rock hard. Possibly the worst bed I've ever slept on. Also, there were a few small things like some of the electrical wall outlets wouldn't work, and literally no batteries in any of the remotes for TVs. We had to buy some new batteries just for our stay, and even then the remotes were pretty old and junky. One last negative was we were not emailed our password to get into the condo from Vacasa. I had read in other reviews this might be an issue, so thankfully I started calling them an hour before we arrived. They finally called back with a ridiculously long 10 digit password 5 mins before we pulled in(seems like 4 digit door code would be plenty). Once again, definitely not deal killers as I would stay here again, especially in the Surf Side Shores units. I would probably just try and find a more updated/comfortable unit next time.
Manager response:
Hi, Seth! We apologize for the struggle we had in getting you the entry code due to a change in emails on your reservation. This was easy to rectify once we realized the mistake. The outlets and remotes are being handled by maintenance. Thank you!

Beautiful condo. Great view of ocean and very clean. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying again. The only suggestion is to improve the comfort of balcony furniture.

This place was so clean and very nice!! It was literally steps away from the beach! We have a son with special needs so this was such a blessing! We will definitely be back!!

Very nice place!

The property is in a great location! Close to all Gulf Shores attractions. The condo itself was well equipped. It could use a few updates better lighting and a deep clean after the summer season but mostly satisfied with our stay. Would stay again.

I will start by saying the view was excellent from the balcony!
Front bedroom bathroom faucet drips constantly. There’s what appears to be black mold on the ceiling above the shower in front bedroom and above the ceiling fan in the bedroom. Dropped a sock and when I got on my hands and knees to grab it out from under the front bedroom dresser it was FILTHY under there with someone else’s shoes, a wash rag, other things that make you think the place IS NOT CLEANED PROPERLY before you stay.
The balcony bedrooms bathroom shower doors are nearly impossible to open and close they grind on the track. Couldn’t get the tv working so we checked the HDMI connection in back of the tv and behind the entertainment stand was someone else’s juice bottle.
The dryer...forget about trying to dry your clothes. It’ll take 3-4 90 minute sessions to get your small load dry. Oh also the laundry doors were off the track and propped up against the kitchen wall when we arrived. Turnkey messaged within 30 minutes of check-in, asking how the cleanliness was of the property. I brought up the doors (as I hadn’t even seen all the other things yet) they were very kind and a maintenence person arrived VERY quickly to fix the track on laundry doors to put them on. I’m fact, he came so fast they didn’t get my message in time telling them to please wait until after our stay to have them fixed as I had preferred no one be in the property while we were staying. I have 2 teen daughters and if I were out and they were alone in the condo it would have made all of us uncomfortable. Turnkey was very prompt in service and seems like they do want it to be a nice clean property. I know they don’t know how well their property is being taken care of if no one tells them.Would I book this condo again? ABSOLUTELY NOT. Would I book with TurnKey again? MAYBE? Especially with the $260 cleaning fee you pay when booking considering you feel This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The condo was great. Just what we needed for a weekend stay. It was a very short walk to the beach. The beach was clean and the water was clear. My only complaint is that we were not told we had to pay an extra 20 for parking in the condo’s parking lot all weekend. We have stayed in many other condos in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach and this is the first time we have ever had to pay for parking in a condo we had already paid for. Other than that, we had a really nice stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Excellent communication with the VRBO company, unit was large, beds were comfortable. Beautiful view of the beach and the ocean from the balcony. Was close to everything, and the unit was really clean and well cared for. Only wish there had been a light above the kitchen sink. Excellent vacation and location!!!!
