Beachfront Condo Overlooking the Gulf w/ Deck, Central AC, WiFi & Shared Pool
A gorgeous beachfront setting awaits at Ocean Reef 9 902, a multi-level condo on the white sand shores of the Gulf of Mexico.
You need only ascend an outdoor staircase to return home from the beach for lunch or an afternoon snack on the deck. The condo is painted in a soft shade of blue, offering central air conditioning, a fully appointed kitchen, space to dine both indoors and out, and a gulf-front living room with a flatscreen TV. In the evenings, you'll find that each of the three bedrooms has its own flatscreen TV as well.
Ocean Reef is a beachfront complex with an outdoor swimming pool and a sundeck where you can lounge in the shade of swaying palm trees. In this wonderfully central part of Gulf Shores, you'll be an easy walk from popular restaurants, eateries, bars, and ice cream parlors, and just over a mile west of Gulf State Park. Gulf Shores Parkway - the thoroughfare that's home to Waterville USA and dozens of other activities and attractions - is only half a mile east as well.

Everything was great! Accommodations were clean. Location were great. Walk out your back door and you were on the beach. A perfect 10!

Our family of 7 had plenty of room! Beach access was perfect. Pool area was well kept! Kitchen at the condo was equipped with everything we needed to make it feel like home! Can’t say enough good things about our stay!

We could walk out of the condo on to the beach

The location of the townhouse was perfect! The beach was beautiful and convenient to a lot of nice spots! Easy to find. However, the unit needs updating. The beds were absolutely terrible. Furniture was very old and stained. The main bedroom with the balcony stayed hot. And carpet and fans were gross. If you like to cook, take your own cookware. If a few small updates were made we would return to this unit but ocean reef was a great location with a beautiful beach.
Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We are glad to hear our home was in a perfect location for you and your group. With that said, we sincerely apologize that the furniture was not as comfortable as you would have liked, the cleanliness issues you encountered and that the cookware was not up to par. Your feedback is highly valued and since your departure, we have completed a deep clean of this home, replaced any damaged cookware, and we are working with the homeowners to continue to make updates to this great home. Thank you again for sharing this review with us. If there is anything we can still do for you, please reach out anytime and let us know.

Vacasa took good care of problems; cockroaches,broken light,broken cabinets.All from previous renters Needs new slider in lower level.
Hi, Tim! We're glad you stayed with us and appreciate your feedback. Maintenance has taken care of the lights and cabinets, and pest control has been to the home. The HOA is replacing all the sliding glass doors as soon as new ones arrive. Thank you!
Love it being beachfront This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Location is great and easy to get to the shops and stores. The view is fantastic. The only little issue is that it`s next to the public access, so there are a few more people around. But, the beach is big and that`s just the way it is. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Our property was not a new property BUT THAT was our favorite part about it. We are not fancy/uppity people so this place was perfect for our sleeping/showering resting place! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Fast beach access.All problems were addressed quickly. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Property was very nice and exactly as we expected. We never went to the pool though just because we stayed at the beach so much. However the room could have been cleaner! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Ocean Reef was great. We love love being right on the beach. We also love being in a smaller place vs a loud complex with 500 other people. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Right on the beach. You can come in for meals or drinks and go right back out. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Remote downstairs did not work consistently A supply of batteries would have been helpful Unit was clean and in good condition-appeared freshly painted This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
We LOVE this property because it sits right on the beach! You walk down the stairs from your deck and your toes are in the sand. It is so convenient!! This is what a beach vacation should be like. Have stayed here 2 other times but about 10 years ago— it always books quick. I did feel the condo wasn’t very clean which was a concern given the current pandemic we are in. The sink was dirty and the tubs were dirty (sand in them and dirt /red stuff in the kitchen sink). I had my 88 yr old grandmother with me so i had brought my own Lysol spray and sprayed down frequently touched surfaces. It was apparent that deep cleaning was not done considering we waited in the car for the cleaning ladies to finish and it only took them 35 minutes. I would recommend better detailed cleaning. I did my own deep cleaning there! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Nice location, could of been cleaner, but overall a great experience. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
We love the location! The sheets need to fit the mattress better. They kept coming off while sleeping. And the vent cover for the ac was covered in lent. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
This suggestion is for condo 8 801. They could use a better coffee pot, updated refrigerator and larger tv. Everything else was satisfactory. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
