About Marilyn Curtis
When Gulf Shores was just a strip of a white sandy beach my family would drive from Mobile every Saturday for the day. My childhood dream was to someday live on the beach. That dream was finally fulfilled in 2005 when I found Crystal Shores. Just being a part of the wonderful environment and gorgeous surroundings which makes up Crystal Shores has awakened me to a new way of life. Jack and I love waking up to the sound of rolling waves and enjoying coffee on the balcony while watching the dolphin frolic right in front of us. Strolling along the beach I have experienced times of relaxation and excitement. It is amazing what swims by---dolphin, all types of fish, jellyfish, tiny rays---all the wonders of an ocean. We love to watch the sunrise, but especially the sunset. Another day well spent in the home we have created for our guests and for Jack and me. Thank you for sharing my dream. Marilyn Curtis
Marilyn Curtis purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Marilyn Curtis chose Gulf Shores
Location, Location, Location.... less than 1 mile from the Hangout, Crystal Shores is centrally located within the heart of Gulf Shores but just far enough away to give you the ability to relax with your feet in the sand! If you forgot something, the Pier 33 Grocery store is just across the street, so there is no need to fight the traffic/crowds for that forgotten item. Jack and I decided to embrace Michael's philosophy (VRBO 181140) of moving away from providing a rental property to be rented by a rental management company to a property that we rent for ourselves offering what we would want for ourselves! Between now and 2015 we will completely upgrade virtually everything about our unit so as to offer our guests EVERYTHING we would want for ourselves as to the quality of EVERYTHING!! We re-invested 80% of what we made in 2013 towards upgrades so as to make your stay exceptional.... and that is exactly what what we should all want... exceptional. Most of it was completed fall of 2013 so know that when you read what some of our guests have been nice enough to say about their stay in our unit, it was prior to the upgrades you now see in the images. Hopefully you too will agree with many of them that it is indeed nicer than expected once you have stayed with us!

Return visit definitely did not disappoint!!
This was our 5th trip to Gulf Shores and 2nd time staying at Crystal Shores 302. When we decided on a trip this summer, our 1st thought was to see if this unit was available since we loved it 2 years ago when we last visited Gulf Shores. The owners are great to work with. Their response time is amazing when answering questions or dealing with a change in rental dates which occured due to a work issue this year.
The condo was sparkling clean and very nicely decorated with quick access to the pool and beach. Having a reserved parking spot is also a great perk as is the fully equipped and then some kitchen. The owners also provide beach chairs, beach towels and very comfortable linens on the beds.
The view is breath taking from the large balcony.
We can't say enough about the owners. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and all our needs were met, even texting us when the condo was ready before the 4pm check in and letting us know we could check I early if we were in the area early.
We will certainly be back at Gulf Shores again and will stay at Crystal Shores 302. It's like coming home for us!!
Wow...what a wonderful review you have written !! That makes us so happy to hear that you all loved our condo!! I agree that having beach towels and chairs available are such a plus instead of having to rent them! So glad you all appreciate that ! I know how it is to walk into a place after a long drive and to find it appealing at first sight is a great feeling 🏖�. We are pleased you liked the underneath reserved parking too!! I hope the information you saw helped to find the best restaurants and activities to share with your family! Gulf Shores sure has grown in the past two years...so we are thrilled you chose to come back to our 302 condo! We sooo appreciate you as guests and do invite you all to come back HOME anytime ! Have a wonderful summer !
This was our first time staying in Gulf Shores and we had a wonderful time. The owners are very friendly, helpful and respond quickly if you need to get in touch with them. The condo was very clean and we loved being on the 3rd floor and the view that we had was incredible. The size of the balcony is very spacious which made hanging out even more enjoyable. We saw dolphins several mornings. The kitchen is stocked with numerous pots and pans, dishes and glasses. And then they also have a lot of extras. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were so nice! We loved the location of the actual condo also and were able to get to any Orange Beach restaurants we wanted to very easily, but there were also many in Gulf Shores that we ate at also. Highly recommend this condo!
Thank you so very much for your awesome review of our condo! We love to hear that our guests love the recommendations that we left for them and that you loved sitting on our balcony as much as we do!! Watching the dolphin from the captains chairs can be very exciting! We especially love that you all found our beds so comfortable too! We just bought brand new King and Queen mattresses!!! And I personally am pleased you liked my sheets so much! They are a soft special brand called Peach Skin sheets!! I use them on ALL of my beds —even at home!!
So pleased that you mentioned liking the third floor!! It is such easy access to the beach and also for hearing the waves crash and observing all the activities on the beach! Y’all are wonderful guests and we are so pleased you enjoyed your first visit to Gulf Shores!! Hope the tournament was a success too!!! Have a delightful summer and know y’all are always welcome back!!🏝�
