          Small place...one elevator and about 30 units. Nice to visit if you just want the beach. No amenities... only outdoor pool which isn't heated. Great location within walking distance of all gulf shores hot spots.

          This place is small. Great location within walking distance to all of gulf shores and fishing pier. Also close to Walmart, abc, souvenirs, and restaurants. Building does not have many amenities. But awesome beach and not too crowded. Extremely reasonable rental rates.

          You wouldnt think much this little building from the road. It's actually not too bad for the prices. Most views are not beach front, but the condo #507 was nicely decorated and sufficient for 4 adults. The pool is very small and mostly shaded. You...More
