Just as stated
We enjoyed a week right on the beach as stated. The pictures are identical to what to expect. The unit is on the top floor so you either need to walk up the stairs or take the elevator which is located in the middle of the building. There is a great State park across the street that we hiked in almost daily as well as the ocean. We were concerned because the review right before we got there said the AC was not working well. We only had trouble the first day getting it to maintain a basic temperature. After that it worked just fine. The only thing I wish I would have known is to bring liquid hand soap, dish towels, sponges, paper towels, toilet paper, foil, saran wrap and basic food items like salt and pepper. We ended up spending quite a bit of money at the Walmart for those items that I had at home. I also wish that there was a check in sheet so that you knew what was supposed to be in the unit or what was already broken. For example, the rod to open the blinds in the bedroom was broken. It wasn't a big deal not to open that set of blinds, but it would have been nice to have a sheet to see that recorded or to be able to record it as not functioning. Thanks for a great opportunity to stay along the gulf shores.
Great condo for family vacation. Great proximity to the beach.
Orange beach vacation
Was very pleased with the accommodations. Worse thing was the walk from and to the elevator. Would be great to have another at the other end of the building.
Glad you enjoyed your stay, unfortunately we can't do anything about adding a second elevator. :-)
Beach area was wonderful! Bedrooms, etc are exactly as pictured. We did not feel like the AC was working at its full potential; during the day with everything shut while we were at the beach it would not cool below 76 & of course once we got to the room and started getting ready it added to the heat and would end up being around 78-79. Overall we had a wonderful family vacation!
Appreciate the feedback, 3rd (top) floor unit and very hot July temps make it tough on the AC. Had it checked and cooling to 68deg temp though cooler outside this week. We will investigate installing additional insulation in attic for next year.
Great place! The only thing to make it better would be new mattresses on the twin size beds! Otherwise we had a great time and the place was super nice!
Appreciate the feedback, we'll look into replacing those mattresses in the fall.
