About Jimmy Garrett

I own and manage rental property in my own hometown, and in Gulf Shores besides this condo. My wife, three daughters, and I have always enjoyed warm weather in Alabama; now that I am finally settling down, my wife and I have decided to buy a condo. This is our home away from home! We love relaxing and enjoying the sun!

Jimmy Garrett purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jimmy Garrett chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We love the southern Alabama beaches, and because we have friends living within thirty miles of Gulf Shores, we decided to buy beachfront property. We try to come down to Gulf Shores every chance we get!

What makes this condo unique

My wife is an avid shopper and she enjoys the two shopping outlets located in Gulf Shores, plus the several surf shops in Gulf Shores too. My three daughters and their friends enjoy going to the festivals held annually year around, going to The Hangout less than one mile from our condo, and go-kart racing in Gulf Shores! We all go out to eat at our favorite restaurant throughout the week! There are over seventy-five restaurants within ten miles of our condo. Our favorite restaurants are the Shrimp Basket, Lambert's, LuLu's, the Fish River Grill, and The Rib Shak BBQ.

Very relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable for just the two of us. Loved the ocean view and convenient location to the beach. Did not ever get the TV in the bigger bedroom to come on. Also had to buy toilet paper and used one towel the whole time. Not big inconveniences at all, just something to note. Loved the convenient locations to restaurants and Wal-Mart. Glad we stayed an extra day.

Beautiful views and very convenient

  • 4 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family. The pool is out the front door and the beach is steps away in the back. The condo is older, but well kept and tastefully decorated. The owner was wonderful the deal with.thr only negative is that there Is no washer and dryer in the condo but there is one on the property. We will be back!

Great beach vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Jimmy’s condo! We stayed for 3 nights in April, 2016.

The condo itself is very comfortable and clean. The kitchen is fully loaded with everything that you can need for cooking a complete meal. We didn’t use the majority of the appliances & kitchen tools, but it was stock with everything including a crockpot, blender, microwave, coffee maker, wine opener and etc. The refrigerator was also able to make ice really quickly, which saved us from buying ice for our coolers on the beach. The balcony had nice comfortable outdoor patio furniture to enjoy the beach view. The balcony looks straight into the beach with no pool obstruction. The pool is located in front of the building. We didn’t use the pool, but it seem too crowded ever. The bedrooms and closets in the bedroom were very spacious. The bed itself provided a great night sleep. The bathrooms and showers were clean. I would recommend one more hair dryer, so each bathroom can have its own. It’s not a huge issue for us since I brought my own.

The condominium is also located walking distance to several restaurants & stores. It is right next to Sea & suds restaurant, across the street from Waffle House and Surf Style. There was also other restaurants that were a little further away, but still walking distance around .5 miles away like the Pink Pony, The Steamer, Shrimp basket, Ribs and the Hangout.

Jimmy himself was very accommodating! He allowed us early check in! Great communication!

It was a nice last minute trip.

  • 4 of 5

Jimmy was absolutely accommodating in setting up our last minute travel plans. There were four of us and we had more than enough room in the condo. The beds were comfortable, there were plenty of dishes and such in the kitchen for cooking, drinking etc. and the apartment was clean. The location of this place was also great; with it being less than a mile from Gulf Shores Pwky and located directly on the beach, we had no problem getting where we wanted to go. We were even able to walk to a couple of stores, restaurants and bars on the parkway without breaking a sweat. I would definitely stay here again!
