Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

251-709-2536. Thank you for spending a few moments looking at our condo. We want you to know that we are vacationers too. We recently finished completely painting with new colors and furnishings. What we look for is a place that is affordable and is kept absolutely clean and has up to date furnishings. Our condo fits this description. You have a place that leaves you more money to spend on the rest of your vacation. You are using the same beach, same restaurants, same stores, same recreation places and other amenities that are used by the high priced condos. We also want to know what others have to say about our condo after they leave. We have many guest reviews for you to read. You don’t have to just take our word in the advertising. We have been blessed with so many wonderful guests over the past 10 years and have many repeat visitors.

Our condo is located in the heart of Gulf Shores. You can walk to a number of restaurants on wide walking lanes or walk to the many local flavor stores. Our condo is located directly across the street from the beach. We are on a corner and have a safe crossing light to our deeded access onto the beach. When you walk out the front door you will be standing on the beach in 3 minutes. You will be parking directly under our condo so your car stays safely covered for your stay.

Why do people keep coming back to Gulf Shores? Still has the small town beach feel. Still a family oriented city. Still the best Seafood restaurants anywhere. The incredibly white beaches that are so wide simply are beyond description until you see it yourself. Plenty of unique shopping places in Gulf Shores. All the familiar chain restaurants and stores are bordering Gulf Shores in Foley. Night time fun for families. Going to The Hangout during the day or night is a blast. Long walks down nearly secluded beaches in early mornings or before dark is a must.

Our condo has nearly every convenience you have at home. The kitchen is fully stocked so you don’t have to bring home to here. Plenty of linens and towels too. We have Wifi so bring your laptop too. You will be working with us directly and you always have our phone number if you need us. We pride ourselves in responding every step of the way quickly and politely during the process of deciding and ultimately coming to our condo. We actively manage our condo and do all the cleaning and maintaining so we know what you want when you get here. Clean, Clean, Clean and comfortable!

About Randy Moris

Lisa and I thank you all for looking at our website. I’m not sure you can call us a success story but if working very hard to establish ourselves in the vacation market is success then we’ll take it. Both Lisa and I have worked full-time jobs in Mobile, AL while working our beach condo business at nights, weekends and any other time people need us. This really all started very simply for us in realizing a dream of buying a simple, humble condo in Gulf Shores. After going to the beach on vacations most of our lives we finally could say we had our own place to go to. We started renting out our condo and found there were people everywhere that want to come to the beach but were priced-out just like it was for us. Our first condo provided a way to come and not spend thousands to do it.

Lisa and I are the parents of a 32 year old son, Nicholas, and a 28 year old daughter named Jill. Jill thought so much of her parents that she has given us 2 granddaughters. It has added so much to our lives. We still live in Mobile and wear out I-10 and the Baldwin Beach Express going between Gulf Shores and home. We manage our own condos and help several friends with theirs. We do the majority of all the cleaning so that we can keep close tabs on each property and keep providing that personal touch. We aren’t a large or faceless company. We are people like you. Hard working people. We probably have many of the same problems but many of the same joys that you have. We are family people and connect well with the many families that come to our places here in Gulf Shores.

We really appreciate each and every one of you that take the time to check us out. And we’d love to have you get a sense of what we feel whenever we are at the beach.

Randy Moris purchased this condo in 2007

Why Randy Moris chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We have always loved vacationing in Gulf Shores and always wanted our own place here. We loved it so much we now have 3 condos.

What makes this condo unique

It's not unique to come on vacation to the beach unless there is no beach where you live. The number 1 reason we always vacationed at Gulf Shores was to get on the beach. Of course there is always plenty of other activities to fill in your days and evenings but the beach was, is, and always be our first love. Oh, and saving money by staying at our condos.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great condo at a great price! It's walking distance from most everything you need. Right across the street from the beach. Randy is very good with communication as well.

Love it

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Waffle house, and a store right next to it great parking out of the weather and a really clean and comfortable home like feel. Only 2 down sides no pool but u can get into a few around it so not that bad. And if you have kids I think it would be hard to have some ( adult time). I got to meet Randy he is a really nice guy. I would recommend it because it is also priced really great too.

Excited to visit again sometime!

  • 5 of 5

Randy was very helpful in planning our trip to Gulf Shores. He was very responsive to texts and e-mails! The property was exactly as stated online. We enjoyed having a short walk across the street and there was the beach! The corner property right by a traffic light was nice. It was also handy if we wanted to grab breakfast with the Waffle House right next door. Another thing that was a nice extra was the showers located under the condos to wash off before we went to our room! The condo was clean and in great shape! We also enjoyed our balcony with an ocean view! We will definitely get in touch with Randy again when we come back! We had a great 1st trip to Gulf Shores!

Worn and REALLY close to Waffle House

  • 3 of 5

The location was great and the owner was super to work with. It was so nice to be able to walk across the street to the beach. The surf style shop looked new and actually had reasonable prices.

The bad- in the pics the condo looks nice, but in person every thing is pretty worn out and old. I did not sleep well at all. There was sand in the sheets and it was so noisy all the time in the hall and could hear people all night and day stomping above our heads. Heard the semi drop off the supplies to the Waffle House at 2:00 am. Like I said did not sleep well at all very noisy. Overall it was okay, but will not return to this condo.

Owner's Response: It had to happen sooner or later. After 161 reviews we got our first review less than 4 stars. We understand that every stay for every guest is not identical and it looks like this may not have been a great stay for this couple that stayed 3 nights. I hate that for them since we value every guest that stays at our condo. Our complex is next to a Waffle House and the majority of our guests have loved the convenience of getting their coffee there or going for breakfast or late night meal. Waffle House may be an acquired taste. Certainly loved here in the south. I am disappointed about the "worn" part since we bought a new sofa and new recliner in September 2015 or just under 2 years ago. We also did a complete redecorating and painted the whole condo in December 2015 and felt proud of how it came out. We are a "mom and pop" business and take a lot of pride in providing a nice and clean condo for a really good price. Much less than hotels. We hope that all the circumstances of Kate's stay will not repeat themselves for other guests since we have had a great history this past 11 years in our condo. We had to take our lumps this time but we know we have a great place.

Its wonderful, you can see the beach from the balcony. We enjoyed our stay and definitely will be back again.Thank You for letting us stay at your condo.....Wallace's

Our favorite place on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

I have visited Gulf Shores East for the past 4 years and love my time here. I travel with my adult daughter and her son and we found this gem on vrbo the first year, and have continued to come every year since then. The owners have become friends because of the way they make the condo so clean, comfortable and stocked. The kitchen is perfect for guests who like to cook in. It is a great location, close to stores, grocery stores and plenty of fun things to do!! Most relaxing vacation year after year!!

Fun Family Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family of 4. Checking in and out was a breeze. The kitchen had everything we needed during our stay. (One Week). The bathroom is large compared to the rest of the unit and we had plenty of towels for all of the entire week. We did use the coin laundry downstairs and had no problems. The location of this unit is extremely convenient. Its far enough away from the main shops that traffic isn't too bad, but close enough where you can walk to a lot of attractions. That being said, the street traffic can be loud-- (not enough to disrupt sleep but enough where you can't sit on the porch and have a conversation.) You also don't have direct views of the beach but you are literally across the street. Perfect if you have small kids that need to dart back for potty breaks, naps etc. We really enjoyed our stay! Randy was very helpful when we came back and found our the AC wasn't turning on. Told us were to find batteries and got it fixed within minutes. We have a lot of friends in the area and would gladly recommend this property to them. We will stay here again next time we come back.
