Patty,
Guests reviews are so important in our efforts to provide a high quality exceed expectation vacation. Also our efforts and perks we offer result in a good number of repeat booking guests. We offer a 10% repeating guest appreciation discount on any future bookings. The provided beach service lounge chairs and umbrella and the large wrap around balcony have been popular with our guests. Come on back soon.

“perfect gulf shores getaway”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

we loved this unit at crystal shores. this was the second time we have stayed in crystal shores and it is in the perfect gulf shores location. traffic is somewhat less on the west beach blvd. than in the areas toward orange beach which is good. there is a grocery store right across the street which is convenient. it is a 1 mile walk to the intersection of 59 and beach blvd. where the hangout is located as well as multiple gift shops and other attractions. bahama bobs restaurant is just under a half mile walk down the beach which is a nice walk in the evening. the pool is heated and half of it is indoor which is nice. there is also a nicely equipped gym too.

joe's unit is awesome too!! we really enjoyed the wrap around balcony which had plenty of furniture to accommodate our group of 6. the condo is nicely decorated and furniture is comfortable. I loved that there was a keurig coffee maker available. The electronic door lock was really nice too so you never have to keep up with a key. The rented beach chairs and umbrella service being provided was the deciding factor for us in choosing this condo. we would have rented them at $130 for the week so it really saved us money. another deciding factor for me was that joe doesn't require booking from saturday to saturday. most condos require this which means that everyone is traveling to and from this area on Saturday which makes for terrible traffic to deal with. I much prefer to travel during the week when the traffic is lighter.

thanks joe!!! we will definitely be renting your unit again

Great place right on the beach. The unit offered everything needed for a nice getaway and easy access to the ocean. Nice little pool for relaxing. Building is close to restaurants and shopping, but far enough away that you aren't in the midst of all the hustling around.

The owner was quick and responsive for a couple questions we had during our stay. We would definitely stay in this rental again.

Thank you, guest reviews are so important to hosts/ property owners in the condo rental business. Reviews help us to improve on issues guest expect and also help future guests to select units that meet their expectations. I am always pleased when my guest have an enjoyable vacation to Gulf Shores and find my unit meets their expectations. Also if there is ever an issue I am as close as your phone and will address the concern to your satisfaction. Gulf Shores is a really great "Small Town, Big Beach" area. When you decide to return to the Gulf please remind me of my 10% returning guest discount!
Thanks

“Nice place in a good location”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The owner sent a nice packet of information proceeding the trip. Even though I frequent gulf shores I appreciated the detail and effort. Booking, payment, and price were very easy/reasonable. The building is located near the main crossroad of gulf shores (59/182) and there is a grocery right across the street.

The unit itself was decorated nicely and bedding was comfortable. Everything was clean and the owner left many extras behind (coolers, chairs, beach towels, coffee, cooking supplies, etc. Additionally the unit had seasonal beach chairs reserved at no additional cost so that was a big plus and may bring me back to this unit again. The pool left a bit to be imagined but overall the gym, parking, and other facilities were nice and clean.

My only two improvements / suggestions would be:

1. Wifi with password - during busy time (Hangout fest) the wifi was extremely slow likely due to multiple users in the area (also didn't like non secure wifi).

2. The walls need to be repainted for scuffs (suitcases) and there was a hole in the pantry door.

I am confident those little things will be fixed and want to finish by reinforcing the positives.
1, Fair Price
2. Free beach chairs
3. All typical amenities plus extras
4. Nice owner and smooth booking process

I will definitely consider this spot for a future return trip.

Thank you so much for your review. I am scheduled for touch up painting in Nov. 2014, and will get the small hole in the door fixed. The wifi system was recently changed and the new and improved (faster)system is still experiencing slow issues. I am sure they will get the system up to speed, hopefully soon. There is also a cable connection to the internet by the kitchen bar which I think gives a more secure hookup but not as convenient to use (maybe faster?). If you elect to stay with us again be sure to ask for the repeat guest discount and glad you enjoyed the Beach service beach chairs and umbrella set up for just you every day.

Hope to hear from you again soon

This unit was excellent, both in condition and décor. Our stay was very enjoyable. Listening to the waves lap on the beach was great therapy and made for a wonderful anniversary trip.
