About Barry Morehead
We're the Morehead's and we live in West Texas. We grew up in the deep south and lived in Birmingham, AL for most of our lives. Even though we don't live in AL anymore and we didn't all grow up there, if anyone asks where where from, we proudly tell them that we're from Sweet Home Alabama.
Barry Morehead purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Barry Morehead chose Gulf Shores
We LOVE Gulf Shores. We bought our beachfront condo so we would always have an Alabama place to enjoy with family and friends. We enjoy sitting on the balcony having morning coffee or relaxing in the living room with the doors open listening to waves rolling in after a day on the beach. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Perfect Place to Enjoy Vacation
First and foremost, the owner was very friendly and helpful. He always properly responded to any message we sent and was also available by phone. Glad to report we didn't need to have communication because everything went well and was above satisfactory levels. The pictures acurrately described the unit and it was conveniently located. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes,pans,and appliances. The bathrooms has plenty of towels available. Great water pressure too, which was a relief trying to get the sand off from our day on the beach. Beds were comfortable and had adequate bedding supplies. The wrap around balcony was nice and being able to have a direct view of the ocean made the whole trip just that much better. The TVs were nice and had plenty of channels to keep the young ones occupied on the few evenings we were inside. And now I know that if I had A&E channel at home I would definitely be spending too much time watching LivePD. The pool at the condo was nice. I was actually relieved that shade was available for those mommas who like to just lay out at the pool while their kids swim. I was able to get out of the sun when needed. I read on a few reviews that the pool being in the shade for most of the day was a negative thing but honestly there was sun on the pool from about 10am until 5ish. Having that moving shade allowed plenty of non-sun time for the kiddos which I liked. The pool went to 15ft depth which was also cool because most pools hit 5-8ft and it was large enough for swimmers of all heights. The only small issue was the beach having lounge chairs spread out that belonged to another condo or facility, I suppose, took up a lot of space on the beach and made it feel more crowded than it actually was. We haven't vacation anywhere that has had them so we just wasn't expecting them but it wasn't a big deal. We just made ourselves at home in front of the ones that wasn't being used. I have absolutely no complaints and would recommend this unit to anyone considering it.
Enjoyable Spring Break vacation
We loved this property and all it had to offer. Family friendly with quick access to the beach and other activities. The owners were helpful and very responsive to questions, with fantastic suggestions for possible rainy days. Thankfully, we didn’t need to worry about rain after all. 😊�
Thank you, Barry and Paula for sharing your beautiful place with us. We had an amazing stay.
We had a great time. Visited Shrimp Festival weekend.
We loved the location. Easy walking to a lot of attractions but far enough away to have peace and quiet. Not a huge complex so it was very quiet at night. Beds are very comfortable. We will stay here again. Barry was very easy to get in touch with for questions that we had during our stay.
The actual unit itself was fine with the exception of a few "discrepancies" but the owner handled that immediately! The parking is not the greatest but we managed.
We left Monday night, so we lost that night but thought it was the best idea given the fact that the hurricane was coming. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for your feedback! It helps us to be better hosts when we hear from our guests. I regret that you were unable to give us an excellent review. We always want our guests to enjoy our little slice of paradise as much as we do.
I’m also sorry to hear in your post that you left early feeling like you “lost that night” due to the incoming hurricane. I completely understand your desire to get out ahead of the weather. None of us could have seen that coming.
I will gladly issue a partial refund now that I am aware that you didn’t stay.
Great condo...great location!!!
Barry was awesome to work with! His condo is located in a small building, which resulted in smaller crowds on the beach in that area! Close to all the popular activities but more peaceful!
It was a wonderful experience from the first email to Barry till the last day there. Barry is a wonderful host who has a great condo right on the water. It was our first trip to Gulf Shores and we will definitely be back next year. Hopefully at the same place. Here are some things that I thought made it great, compared to other places I have stayed.
1) the linens and towels were great and there was plenty.
2) the beds were so comfy that my teen boys wanted to always sleep in..LOL
3) lots of dishes, pots and pans. Had everything you need to cook a good meal.
4) the views were breathtaking.
5) last but not least Barry is a great host!!
