I would highly recommend this condo. We had a wonderful experience. We have a 2 year old and it was great. We ended up renting a crib from a local place since she is used to sleeping in a crib and it was there when we arrived. The balcony has doors to both the living room and the main bedroom. Also the long sized bed was great. We had a hard time finding a king size bed in other condo options. The location could not be better. Literally up the elevator and you are right there. You can see what is happening on the beach and at the pool at all times. Everyone we met was lovely. Will definitely consider this for an annual trip!
Great location and fabulous pool!
I recently had a family vacation and stayed in Vicki's condo. The condo, location and property staff were awesome. The view from the condo was great and location were great! The property staff were very attentive. I would definitely recommend Vicki's place to friends and family. Vicki was very responsive with any questions that I had. Thanks again and hope to see you next year!
Vicki was very responsive, we loved the location and the building, great beach, great staff, quiet, this unit best beach balcony we have ever seen
Our stay at Vicki's condo was just what we thought it would be based on the information that was shared with us. The facilities at the complex were in superb condition, the views gorgeous and fairly convenient to many attractions in the area. We would not hesitate to stay here again as it had everything to offer that we wanted.
We had a great time in Vicki's condo and the facilities in the complex -- look at the pictures and you will see exactly what you get when you stay here! We walked the beach, used the indoor pool, both hot tubs, the sauna, the pool deck, the tennis court and the spa. Not bad for just three full days! The furniture and beds are certainly comfortable and serviceable. The balcony is a great feature. As other reviewers have noted, you will only find a roll of tp and a bar of soap per bathroom, plus we had complimentary shampoo and conditioner and one dishwasher soap packet. Vicki apprised me of this prior to our arrival, so we were not surprised. For the price, maybe a few more things could be added to the amenities package so that some basics wouldn't have to be supplied by guests for only a few nights' stay. But that wouldn't deter us from returning! We discovered the Alabama Gulf State Park Pier and recommend it for great fun watching the fisher persons and learning about the local fish and wildlife. Three other mentions: you can borrow tennis rackets and balls (though you might want to buy/bring a fresh can) at the desk; delightfully, dolphins can be seen not far off the beach for which you might want to bring binocs; and if the spa is something you are considering, go for it -- it's small but interesting and we felt well-pampered. Vicki was very responsive and we thank her for hosting us for our relaxing long weekend.
The place was great. The kitchen had everything we needed to make Christmas dinner. We enjoyed the balcony with the great view of the ocean. We had plenty of room. We ate at a restaurant called the Jellyfish and it was great. The indoor pool and workout area were an added bonus. The only thing we had a problem with was getting a key for the workout area. Due to the Christmas holiday the front desk did not always have someone available. Really great trip:) Thanks Vicki
About the Host, Vicki
Fell in love w/the Gulf of Mexico's white sugar beaches, warm breezes and easy southern living! Get there whenever I can. And the cuisine in New Orleans...nothing compares! So would love folks to come check it out! Anyone been to JazzFest?! Just a few things in life to add to the bucket list! How bout Italy...heading there soon! My mom says "anticipation is 1/2 the fun of living"! I would agree the planning is definitely exciting! Travelng to new places expands the mind and maybe helps us be better citizens!
