Pros: great view, nice grill area, spacious for a large group, legit ice maker, big master bath, wasn't overly crowded, and had super quick beach access.

Cons: super hard beds (every adult on our trip complained) scratchy towels and sheets, and hot tub by pool was broken during our stay.

We had a great trip and would recommend! (will probably look to book elsewhere in future due to bed discomfort though)

This condo was in nice shape. The view, other than all the construction in the area, was lovely. We had issues with the fire alarm in the condo itself. The first day it alarmed we had no idea that it was just our condo, therefore we took 18 flights of stairs to the bottom only to be told by the guard on duty that there was no alarm for the building just our condo and that the same thing had happened the week before. I tried to get someone from Vacasa to help. The next day same thing. Alarm (going off for 2 hours) called three times before getting someone local to help. Therefore I spend 2 of my 4 vacation days fighting with a false fire alarm.
Also when we checked in housekeeping had missed cleaning the living room tables- chips around lamp on table and I swept 2 handful of chip/sand/dirt from under center coffee table. Hard to get anyone to help. If it had been a real fire I hate to think what would have happened.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing feedback about your experience, Carolyn! We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with the alarms during your stay. Rest assured that we will follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience. Thanks for staying with us and we hope for another opportunity to impress you with a much more enjoyable stay!

Everything was great. Condo was very clean and very nice. It is a large condo. Plenty of room. Check in and out was smooth. We loved everything about it.

View was best part. There were several issues that need to be addressed:
Beds we’re too hard to rest in,
Wind was blowing through the gaps in the front door. It was hard for our family to get a good nights sleep. It needs to be sealed better.
There was no can opener or hair dryer.
Manager response:
Hi, Kerry! We're glad you chose to leave your feedback with us. The hair dryer and can opener have been replaced, and we have reported the gap in the entry to the HOA. The beds are new as of June 2021. Thank you!

We stayed 3 nights in this condo. It is right on the beach, beautiful views from the 18th floor, great location on Beach Blvd. However, there were NO amenities in the condo, no hairdryer, no coffee, no salt/pepper, no tissues. For being a beach location, there were no beach towels, no beach accessories whatsoever. When Vacasa called to make sure check in went okay, I let them know. The person said they would check with the owner list, but I never heard back from them, and we did not get any one these items.
Manager response:
Susan, thank you for the review. We are so glad you enjoyed The Colonnades 1801. We apologize there were not the amenities you expected. We do not furnish coffee, salt, pepper, facial tissues. We do furnish starter packages of paper towels, toilet tissue, soaps, shampoo, conditioner. Once this is used our guests are expected to furnish those items. We hope this helps you understand for future bookings. We look forward to hosting you again. Thank you!

We have officially left unit 1801 headed back to Missouri. This was our second stay in the same unit, it’s perfect in size for our family. The beach view never disappoints! However a few things could stand some improvements.

Trash can in the bedroom that has no bathroom, better pillows in all rooms or simply add to the list of things to bring? We all are a bit sore from 4 nights sleeping on not so comfy mattresses, and all the beds could uses a real top cover it was like covering up with a thin table cloth. We cleaned the air return vent and placed the filter in the correct position it was just laying in the closet. Shower curtains need washed they have mildew on bottoms. It really needs a good cleaning overall. I used a case knife to screw the handles on pots and pans. They were a danger to cook with. We purchased air fresheners to help with the stale scent. The elevators have freshness going on! Really a little to strong for such a small area. Lol
The light was out that points to the condo sign so we missed the turn in several times we did mention it day one but day four it’s still not lit. Light in the hall leading to our room was out for 3 days had to use cell phone flash light to see key pad.
Ohhhhh and I almost forgot the email that Comes the morning of our stay with codes did not include a code for condo door. One of my family members arrived first and had to stand at door with small children while I called and held for someone to assist. Eventually we were given a code to access the condo. That was pretty upsetting.

All in all we love the beach and we love the condo. Just some thought we collected during our stay. The maintenance bill is in mail lol.

We have stayed at the Colonnades for several years. We like unit 1802 because the number of beds is just what we need for our group. We have been coming to Gulf Shores for 29 years and this complex is one of our favorites! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
