Awesome end unit with great ocean and bay views on the morning sun side so cool in the afternoon...
Well taken care of unit with that down at the beach feel. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms, enough space for 8 or maybe 10 with kids doubling up in a bunk. The beds are all modern memory foam matresses which is great because I usually don’t sleep well when I travel, but this place was great got over 8 hours every night.
Four TVs so even the most disagreeable of kids on what to watch can find an open TV somewhere. All are modern WiFi TVs so Netflix was a nobrainer.
The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans, pie dishes, even a Joe Foreman grill and a couple of crock pots. We only ate out once our week there and enjoyed delicious home cooked meals from the kitchen everyday! Nice size pantry with enough room for our food crates. There are probably a years worth of coffee filters in the kitchen. So if renting this year you are probably good with leaving those home.
The guest locker had a beach cart with oversized sand wheels for easy trucking on the beach, there were also a couple of bags of kids toys, a large raft and a kite... Which is nice to avoid the expense if you can.
There is a nice hotel style exercise room by the pool as well as two pool tables and a foosball table for those looking to skip the beach but not go out.
There are more than ample carts, hotel style ones with a clothing bar as well as even a few shopping carts for groceries.
Being on the west end of the island there is no through traffic going to Florida all night long like those further east.
If you head to Tiki’s mini golf take cash, they run an honor system there and are 30% cheaper than Shrimpy’s. We had a lunch at the Flip Flop Café... Could probably split sandwiches there, they are really big.... So you save room for the ice cream.
There is a parking garage with plenty of space to find an open spot to keep your car in the shade and cool.
It was a great week, will definitely go again, and highly recommend this place.
We stayed there for the second year in a row.We loved it.Great unit and owner was bet helpful. We are already planning our trip for next year
We thoroughly enjoyed the property. The space was accommodating for our family, . The property had everything we needed to make meals and sleep well. The view was absolutely amazing. We will definitely be returning.
Perfect for our family of seven
My family of seven were very comfortable in this beautiful condo. Everything was great except the weather for our end of June stay. The condo was nice and cool and we enjoyed the pool.
Great spot on the beach and well maintained condo. Our challenge was with the building and management company. the was under construction and one of the elevator's were down the entire week - leaving only one slow working unit for 14 floors...that put a slight damper on the trip. We went down with several family members and was suprised to discover that crystal shores and crystal shores West were not connected - couldnt even walk between parking lots. soe be carefull if you are booking multiple units.
Excellent location and perfect Gulf view
The condo is in a great location, offers an excellent Gulf view over the beach, and provides plenty of space for everyone. We stayed for several days with our three daughters (ages 17, 16, and 7). The indoor pool was a bit small-ish, but the outside pool was excellent. The kitchen was relatively well-stocked with utensils, pots, pans, etc. Unlike a lot of beach-area properties, we enjoyed plenty of water pressure and hot water in the showers and sinks.
The only minor critiques I would have: (1) the master bedroom door would not stay open unless we propped something against it, (2) there was some conflicting information about check-out times. Everything we received through VRBO said 11:00am, but the signs in the condo said 10:00am. Sure enough, the cleaning personnel arrived right at 10:15, and we were still packing out. They were pleasant and there was no problem, but be aware the management company probably actually expects check-out at 10:00, regardless what you might read on VRBO or your emails.
Those two nit-picks aside, the stay was excellent and included dolphins and stingrays dancing in the surf every day. We would definitely stay here again in the future and recommend this property to anyone who wants to stay right on the beach in Gulf Shores.
Fantastic West Beach location in the heart of Gulf Shores, Alabama - close to everything the area has to offer. Great view from an oversized balcony.
