About Owner

About Laurel & Melissa

While road tripping with my family in 2018, one of our stops was in Gulf Shores. I fell in love as soon as I put my toes in the sugary white sands and heard my feet squeak when i walked. Within 6 months, our family decided to purchase a place for us and guests to enjoy. When I purchased my condo, I wanted to provide a clean, cozy home that welcomes pets as well. As your host, my goal is to provide a place you will want to come back to and visit year after year, not a cheap rental. I hope you come and stay with us and enjoy our little cottage as much as our family and our french bulldogs do. We look forward to accommodating you on your next beach vacation. Don't forget your furry friend!

Super cute getaway

We rented this unit because we were interested in buying another unit in this complex. The location was perfect, close to everything, directly across the street from the beach. Super cute little getaway.

Everything was great

Everything was great. Location, cleanliness and parking. The only thing negative was the noise from the unit above us. This could have not been controlled by the manager but it did get a little trying a times.

Easy walk to beach

Melissa was a great communicator at all times. We had trouble initially getting in with the combination lock on the door and she called us immediately and came right over to help us get in. We loved being able to bring our dogs. Had covered parking available in the small condo complex. Everyone was friendly. Felt very safe. The walk to the beach was easy. We would definitely go back to this area and this condo.

Perfect

Our stay was wonderful. The beach conditions were fantastic. My husband discovered The Beach House Kitchen restaurant. It was only 1 1/2 blocks away which meant not having to fight traffic to go eat. Both of us could have cocktails at dinner. The food was delicious and service was great. The only negative was the family who stayed above us. The noise never stopped. Our poor dog thought it was thunder. We wish we could have stayed longer.
