About Vicki

Thanks for looking at my listing. I am the original owner of Crystal Shores 1407 and I appreciate all the wonderful renters I have had over the years. In Dec, 2014, I redecorated and updated this unit and it looks great. Its a wonderful place to spend a vacation in Gulf Shores. I have been vacationing in Gulf Shores since 1987, long before there were any high rise condominiums. I have been to so many beach vacation spots around the country, but Gulf Shores is my favorite. Not too big, not too small, plenty to do or quiet enough to just sit on the beach and people watch. Being from a very very very small town in Tennessee, Gulf Shores is a great get away anytime of the year for me.

Vicki purchased this condo in 2004

Why Vicki chose Gulf Shores

When I first went to look at this condo in 2004, I went out to the balcony, looked at the view, and bought the condo. Its all about the view, and being right on the water, I love the sound of the waves.

Fantastic all around...

  • 5 of 5

We’ve rented through VRBO numerous times over the years and this unit rates right up near the top of all of our experiences. It was perfect for our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids...6, 3 & 3). Very well appointed and maintained. I’m already missing sitting out on the balcony having my morning coffee! The location was convenient to restaurants, stores, etc. We hope to stay here again at some point in the future.

Beautiful views and sugar sand beach!

  • 5 of 5

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay here! We found the condo accommodating to our four person family. Nice tile floors and equipped kitchen! Close to the fun activities, restaurants, and shopping of the main strip. The complex itself is nice! Pool is a little small, but certainly clean and fun. Don’t hesitate to book with these folks! (Just not our week we want next year :-D)They are very accommodating and give quick responses to questions. Very pleased and I know you would be too.

Beautiful place! We had a wonderful family vacation and hope to return.

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse is great; plenty of room for our family of 4. There are DVD players with all TVs, so you may want to bring something to watch—we had a rainout two days of our stay, and it was nice to have a couple of movies on hand. The kitchen is well-equipped for making meals in the condo, but there are plenty of great restaurants nearby if you prefer to eat out. The beach storage is good for toys & chairs, but don’t put anything you don’t want to lose there (skim boards, pricey floats..). Parking was awesome right by the elevator. Overall this is a wonderful place, and we plan to return!

Feel the breeze by staying on the top floor! Gorgeous views from morning 'til night from the 14th floor. There was rarely a time that we didn't have a cool breeze coming off the ocean. The condo is nicely decorated and well-maintained with comfortable seating and beds. Take a FOB whenever you leave the'll need it wherever you go on property (pool, game room, beach, or workout room)! There are grills available on the ground floor to grill out and a private parking space included with the stay very close to the elevators. Super nice and would definitely recommend Vicki's property!
