“Gulf Dunes 314W”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2016

We were lucky enough to book this unit the day before we were scheduled to leave for vacation due to the fact our original hotel overbooked & couldn't accommodate us. What a blessing because this apt was Beautiful! It had a perfect view of the ocean & is literally right on the beach! Everything was super clean upon our arrival & the kitchen fully stocked with everything you need to cook a meal! The bed in the master room was so comfortable too! It's obvious care was taken in the selection of the decor & it is all very beachy & cute! We couldn't of asked for a better place to spend our vacation & look forward to staying here again!

“Perfect Gulf Getaway!”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2016

I decided to drive from Wisconsin with my two daughters ages 8 and 12 for a spring break getaway. I am soooo happy and grateful that I found this condo before I booked a room at a hotel! The condo was decorated and furnished so well. We only went out to eat the night that we arrived. The rest of the meals I enjoyed cooking in the kitchen overlooking the Gulf! Wish I had that view everyday! The only suggestion that I have is to have some sort of nightlight(s) by the bunkbeds. My girls slept with me every night because it was too dark for them in the hallway. Also, I had to call the management company upon arrival because I was unclear as to how to get the code to enter the room. They were very prompt and we got in right away, but I would suggest better communication as to how you check-in. We really enjoyed the beach. Liked that there was a bathroom available on ground level. We weren't sure about why everyone was at one pool and not the other found out from other guests one is heated, the other is not. I also didn't know where to dispose of garbage on check out day. I didn't see any mention of the garbage chute in the condo. Might be helpful info for new guests:) Otherwise, we had a fantastic trip and we would love to come back and definately stay at Gulf Shores again! Thanks again!

“Great Condo! Great Location! Great Amenities!”

This condo was even better than the photos - we knew it was new, but it still exceeded our expectations. The furniture was gorgeous and we loved that all the floors were tile - it was also spotless when we arrived so kudos to your cleaning crew! The Master Suite had the most comfortable mattress and a large flat screen tv that allowed us to watch our Netflix at night. The living room also had a large flat screen tv with SMART capabilities and the wifi worked great! The bunk beds are perfect for kids. The kitchen was fully stocked and had everything we needed - we liked that there were also plastic dishes to eat outside. All of the décor in this condo is so cute! The best feature was the large balcony - and what nice patio furniture...very solid and comfortable to sit and enjoy the beach. The building has 2 pools and we enjoyed the heated pool – they also had tennis courts and we were pleased to find rackets to use in the closet. In all we had a fabulous vacation and we will definitely rent this condo again on our next trip - trust us, you will not be disappointed!
