Great spot on the beach

4 of 5

The condo was comfortable and had similar amenities that we are used to inside the condo as far as dishes, bedding, towels, etc. The swimming pool outside was decent in size but the depth I believe was 2ft on the ends and 4 ft in the middle. I liked that it had some shade areas under a covered area but also allowed you to be in the sun if you want that also. It has a great balcony view of the ocean and overall the condo was spacious. The building had not much else to offer unless you were an owner. What we didn't like was our shower in the master bath was not working and would not turn on. This was as soon as we arrived. We saw cleaning people there earlier but obviously, no one cleaned the master shower because there was no water that could be turned on. There was a LARGE amount of mold build-up surrounding the shower (not just under the caulking). It was disgusting. We notified the management company immediately that the water would not turn on and asked how would they have cleaned it. The mgmt co said they would call their maintenance person, but ultimately they decided they needed to send an actual plumber who did not arrive until Monday. When he arrived he was very nice. He said this was a known issue and he would have to come back another day shut the water to the condo completely off and change out a mixer. Ultimately by Wednesday, everything was fixed and then cleaned by us. However, this was most of our trip down a bathroom to shower in.

We loved our vacation. More beautiful than the photos. Very clean. Favorites:- beach view- heated pool- privacy/not overcrowded- location (walking distance to the Hangout and some shops)- master bed was super comfy, and the jetted tub was used daily - kitchen was used daily to cook and feed all of us - had most of what we needed on siteOnly issues found:- master shower does not work - 2nd bath drains SLOW- hot water takes 2 hours to reheat if it runs out from 3 or more being taken- bunk bedroom TV only has Dish 101 channel and most remote batteries are missing or low

Exceeded expectations!

5 of 5

This condo exceeded our expectations! It was very spacious and never once did our group of 6 feel uncomfortable. The master bedroom and en-suite was massive. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud! The sliding balcony door in the bedroom wouldn’t open, but it was not an issue for us. The balcony itself was outstanding! Plenty of seating and a spectacular view. The other 2 bedrooms served its purpose and we had absolutely no issues. The kitchen was updated and beautiful. Accessing the pool level was kind of tricky the first couple of tries and having an access code for beach accessThe pool area was great and there was plenty of seating. It was always clean and never overcrowded. The beach was phenomenal! Parking was never a problem and we were able to have covered parking for both our vehicles. One parking pass was included in our condo fees and the extra one was $55. There was construction on the east side of the property but the noise level was irrelevant to us (especially inside the nearly sound proof condo). I would be delighted to stay at this property again and would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a place in Gulf Shores.
