We cannot wait to come down again!

We had a wonderful stay at the Retro Retreat in Gulf Shores. The condo has a spectacular view of the Gulf and a great patio to sit and take it all in. The unit was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The location on the beach was wonderful! We were able to be out on the sand in only a few steps. We cannot wait to come down again!

Comfortable family style property with retro furnishing and easy clean surfaces.

Lindsay and Chris were very responsive to a specific need that we had and even came into the property to personally address our need. Impressive.

Their place was as described, retro, family friendly and very clean. We were sure to take care of it.

The beach was easy access, the pool was clean and we appreciate the friendly daily security service as you drove into the property.

Comfortable family style property with retro furnishing and easy clean surfaces.

Everything we needed was there including beach chairs and loved the property book with local ideas although we would up spending most of our time with family in Orange Beach.

This place was perfect

This place was perfect - walked right out on the beach and back again so many times! We hardly left at all to venture into tourist territory. Loved the sunny, boho decor and comfy furniture. The patio had a perfect view of the full moon over the ocean waves. We would stay here again without any further searching for location. Just know that if you arrive on Saturday afternoon, traffic in is a beast!
