Randle & Brenda Brooks purchased this condo in 2016

Why Randle & Brenda Brooks chose Gulf Shores

we purchased this unit for our home away from home because it just suits us. We have stayed in high rise buildings on the ocean; in condos across the street from the ocean; in motels both on the ocean and as far away as Daphne and Spanish Fort. We love the ocean and the beach; but our main interest in a vacation is quiet relaxation. We preferred a building with only 2 floors and since this is an end unit it was perfect. This place is off the highway far enough to block the traffic noise, yet we are in the middle of virtually everything the gulf coast has to offer. We can go out to GREAT places to eat in any direction. We can go to state pier and enjoy the gulf or we can go to the Orange Beach public park and take in the intercoastal water way, where you can watch dolphins follow the barges, or just enjoy the beautiful weather. Tanger Mall has almost 100 stores to visit. ALL of these places are within 5 to 10 miles. Depending on traffic it is just a 10 or 20 minute drive to everywhere including the beach which is only 4.7 miles away (don't forget about the beach with all the sun and ocean). we simply think this is perfect place for a COMPLETE VACATION and words simply can't describe it all

Relaxing place to stay

  • 4 of 5

I took two of my sons to enjoy a few days at the beach. This condominium is conveniently located to many of the attractions in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. You do have to travel a couple of miles to get to the beaches, but that's not a bad thing. The owners have kept up this condominium. The carpet looked brand new or was professionally cleaned recently. Kitchen countertop and bathroom cabinet is updated, the one change I would make is a new shower. The king size bed is comfortable. If you have more than four people, you would probably want to find another place to stay, but four or less, this place is ideal. The condo does sit along the road that connects to highway 59, traffic wasn't to bad on the weekend, but got a little busier on weekdays. There is a tree barrier between the condominium and the road. I would stay here again if I plan another trip to Gulf Shores.

Quiet, well kept place and grounds.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 5 nights 4 days. The complex is quiet, and the grounds,pool, clubhouse are kept up very well. Great place for our vacay. Quick access to everything to need beach,stores,shopping etc without staying right in the middle of everything. I’m not sure if this is considered an apartment or condo but it served us very well. Family of 4, 2 kids we had everything we needed in the house. Nicely decorated, clean and kept up nicely. Would def stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review and for spending your Gulf Coast vacation with us. We do apologize for the grounds, I am guessing your are referring to the tall grass in front of our condo, but unfortunately there is a major water leak at the water cutoff there and the grounds keepers can’t mow or weed eat until the condo association can get it repaired, and the grass is loving all that extra water! We hope you will come back soon and stay with us again and we really hope you have a great remainder of 2018 and may God bless you richly. Randle & Brenda

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The condo was super clean and definitely had a homey feel to it. We felt so close to everything, yet not in the hustle and bustle. This will definitely go on the "must visit again" list.
