I booked 312A through VRBO for a 4-night stay for my daughter and I. We arrived after the main office closed at 5pm, so we couldn't register our car until the next morning (there is a $20 fee). The condo space was just perfect for us. The kitchen was stocked with plates, glasses, pots and pans, etc. The view from... More

I booked a one bedroom through Brett reality. We stayed on the 4th floor during the middle of June. Room was just okay. Nothing was there but basics. No ceiling fans, cheap plastic furniture on the balcony, terrible coach bed, but awesome bed. Looking at the pictures it appeared to have a separate bedroom, not the case. You walk in... More

I admit I was just a bit disappointed that the condo was not directly on the gulf, but the property itself was quite nice with an outstanding swimming pool setting. My condo in particular was "As advertised", and the owner of the condo was very accommodating. I would recommend this property to those who will be visiting Gulf Shores. The... More

Booked a 2 bedroom unit for Hangout Fest weekend. My daughter and her friend went to the festival, while my wife and I enjoyed the resort. Stayed on the 4th floor overlooking the pool and Little Lagoon. The view was fantastic!!!! The balcony was roomy and the furniture was comfortable. The bedrooms and baths are on the small side, but... More

Considering the low rates we got for the condo, I was a bit skeptical at first. The service at the Brett-Robinson rental office was impeccable. I had asked upon reservation whether the room was equipped with free WiFi as I would have to work on site. The agent said it was, but the lady at the rental office told me... More

We stayed in 716a and were happy with the accommodations. It was a one bedroom that had everything we needed for our stay. The employees were attentive and the pool was clean.
