Recent Gulf Shores vacation rental reviews

This is a dated condo with upgrades .I love the family oriented environment. Very close to the beach . Have been coming here for over 35 years now bringing my grands here.
Jackie M. | Apr 2024
We enjoyed our stay at west side cottages. The rental was clean and met our needs. It looked just like the photos. We were happy the unit was dog friendly, however Gulf Shores and Orange Beach do not allow dogs on the beaches at any time which was a major let down. We still were able to walk them, take them to a local dog park that had water for them to play in. The unit had lots of board games, books, and smart tv with streaming apps. The area of gulf shores has some issues with internet, so the tv streaming apps sometimes delayed, but again.. it’s an issue with the gulf shores area, not the specific unit. We would definitely stay at this unit again, but there were a couple of things we’d alert future guests about. The front door is extremely difficult to lock and unlock, it was very frustrating every time we left the unit. This unit doesn’t allow guests to use their beach chairs so you will need to bring your own, or rent some. The indoor staircase up to the top floor slants downward which was a major tripping hazard so I wouldn’t recommend this unit to any guests who may have accessibility issues. There is no ice maker at this unit, so you will need to get ice (there is a container for ice in the freezer). As mentioned, we would stay here again because it was clean, communication was great, and the check in and check out process was very easy. Everything about this stay was easy (outside of the front door issue), so as a first timer with VRBO, I am happy with our vacation.
