Why fight the hustle and bustle (and traffic!) and cram into a crowded high-rise condo when you can ease on down West Beach Blvd and enjoy a slower-paced, old-school beach atmosphere? You will notice your tension levels dropping as you cruise down the two-lane boulevard past beautiful beach homes. Our Little Slice of Paradise is located in the Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet Club nestled between the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the still quiet waters of Little Lagoon. Unit 605-B is located on the 6th floor and you will notice that even upon exiting the conveniently located elevator in building B, you can see both the Gulf and Little lagoon. Don’t linger too long, though, because the best is yet to come… Enter the unit and you will find a totally renovated (May, 2018), tastefully decorated bungalow. We offer two bedrooms and one bathroom that will be just perfect for a couple or a small family. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and a sliding glass door that leads out to a spacious 18x7 balcony overlooking the pool (more to come about the pool!) and the guest bedroom has two twin sized beds, with a gorgeous view of its own. If you need a little extra sleeping space, the couch is a queen-sized sleeper. The living area also has a sliding door opening out to the balcony. There are three (3) televisions in the unit with cable provided. We also offer a fully-equipped kitchen so meal prep is a breeze. There is free WIFI in the unit. Now, back to the POOL…you will fall in love with the pool. The fidget spinner shaped pool is surrounded by palm trees, fountains and lush greenery with plenty of seating space and tables under umbrellas for your snacks for the kids. Speaking of kiddos, the whole pool area is fenced in with a kiddie pool in its own fenced area. If you can tear yourself away from the pool, you will notice that other amenities include lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard, TWO piers with numerous boat slips and a boat ramp ($20 one-time launch fee for each watercraft). For more information check out www.GSSRC.org/amenities. Ready for the grand finale? The PRIVATE beach access is located just a few steps away across the two lane boulevard and is open to Surf & Racquet guests only. Relax in the sugar white sand without a crowded public beach. Bring your favorite beach chair! At the end of the day, as the sun is setting, grab your grub and head to one of the two charcoal grilling areas or jump in the car for a short drive and savor some of the best seafood in the world. After dinner, put your exhausted kiddos to bed and enjoy balcony time (with your favorite icy beverage) overlooking the pool at night. THIS is a beach vacation like it was meant to be!

We came down for my husband's surprise birthday trip with our kids and everything was perfect! The condo was exactly like its pictured in the listing, and the location was perfect! On the quieter end of Gulf Shores, it took us 3 minutes to walk across the street to the beach from the condo and it was a close drive to all the shops and restaurants. We will definitely be back!

Courtney, I am so glad that you chose to celebrate your husband's birthday with us! Thank you for the kind words and we would love to see you guys again next year.
I started looking for vacation rentals in Gulf Shores early spring, my husband is not the beach lover that I am. I thought that the great history and attractions would be great for him and I would have the beach. Early May my position was eliminated at my employer and put my search on hold all that worked out then my good old dog died and then a week later My 92 year old mother died on July 2nd . I am not saying all that to be pitied but to say how much I needed a getaway. My husband said he would do what ever I wanted but staying in at a little slice of paradise was perfect for us and what we needed. The condo was spotless which is what I want and it was perfect for us decorated in the perfect beachy theme. The grounds are well maintained and get access to the beach even if across the road. We are all ready to come back. My only regret is that the weather was unusually hot and we didn’t get to play tennis. Thanks to the Wages for sharing their beautiful condo with us. Leslie checked on us several times to make sure we were doing great. 5 stars!

Ms Stella, I hope that our beautiful beach could provide that "A-HA!" moment that allowed you to relax a little and release some of your grief and stress. Sometimes, the waves can bring a renewed sense of strength and joy. Please feel free to come and see us anytime.
This condo was a wonderful get-away. It was tastefully decorated and very clean. It was also more spacious than I expected. The only issue was the slow drain in the bathtub. The location was great. Close enough to the main drag but far enough away to feel peaceful. The walk to the beach was not bad and the beach itself was lovely. The pool area was beautiful and well maintained. It was nice having the tennis courts right there at the condo but they could use some work. They had several large cracks and the one net was low, but they were usable. The sunsets over the bay were beautiful but could not be seen from the condo. The owner was very attentive in her communications before, during and after the trip. She definitely deserves a five star rating! Overall we were very pleased with our experience and would recommend this condo to others.

Ruth, thank you so much for the kind words! I love the fact that you liked the décor and the cleanliness but it means so much to me that you feel like you were taken care of. I am glad that I could make your getaway a great one. Come see us again anytime!
We were so excited to go on vacation! When we got to our unit, it was exactly like the pictures we saw right down to the great view off the balcony! It was VERY clean which was one of my main concerns! I like that the entire unit floor is tile, makes it a lot easier to keep the floor clean from all the sand and water that gets tracked in! Just a walk across the street to the beach or short walk to the Lagoon. We were able to barbecued on site on our last night there! Owners were very quick to respond to questions or concerns. Will definitely be contacting them next year!! 100% satisfied!

Brittany, thank you...thank you...thank you! I strive to make sure that there are no surprises and that you have all the info you need- when you need it. Please come see us again soon!!
We had a great stay! We stayed 4 nights. The condo was clean and nice. The beds were comfortable and the balcony looks over the pool area. It was prime vacation time when we came so there were always people out in the pool area enjoying their families. The docks and sand area by the kayaks were nice. The beach access was close, just across small parking lot then street which wasn’t too busy. The condo has just about everything you would need as far as dishes and cooking utensils. We cooked most of our meals there. It was a great time and a beautiful view!

Thank you, Jenny, for the wonderful review! These are the kind of details that I would want to see in a review if I were looking for a place to stay with my family. I am so glad you had a great time. We would love to have your family back soon!
Room was great, perfect location! Owner super attentive and friendly! Definitely recommend!

Thank you so much Julie!! We are so glad that you and your family could play a little baseball and spend a little time on the beach at the same time. Come see us again soon!
We loved the condo . It was a perfect location with the beach and docks for fishing and fun. We were in town for a baseball tournament. Overall, the area was great with lots of food and entertainment choices. Leslie stayed in contact with us throughout the week to make sure our stay was as expected. Highly recommend!

Nicholas, thank you so much for the wonderful words! Baseball and Beach...doesn't get much better than that! I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay and I hope that you will come back to see us soon.
We really enjoyed staying in the condo! The private beach access is really convenient and even had an outdoor shower on the way back to the condo. Our boys loved the pool and the surrounding pool area is really pretty and relaxing. We loved sitting out on the balcony and enjoyed the lagoon views. The condos beach decor was so cute and the beds were really comfortable! The owners were really wonderful and easy to work with. Condo was really clean. We would highly recommend staying here!

Thank you so much, Dyani, for the wonderful words! It was a pleasure to have you guys stay and you are welcome back ANYTIME!
My (now) husband and I decided to do a destination wedding and chose Gulf Shores, AL as our location. We stayed in GSSRC unit 605-B and couldn’t have asked for a better condo! The listing was very accurate. The location was away from the chaos and the neighborhood was super friendly. The view from the balcony of the lagoon was beautiful during all hours of the day, & and the area below us was picturesque-from the array of colorful flowers to the flowing waterfall into the pool-we LOVED it all! We could also see the ocean & several beach houses from the balcony walkway just outside the front door, which gave us beautiful views-especially at sunrise & sunset!
Our room was perfect for what we needed with 2 adults & 2 teenage boys. There was plenty of space and privacy for all of us! Another plus that we didn’t plan for were the multiple full-length mirrors around the room—this made the perfect space for my bridal party to get ready before our ceremony. The room was modern, clean, and decorated perfectly!
Leslie was super helpful throughout the entire process. She was always quick to respond to any questions we had, and even helped me out with some pre-wedding planning and ideas! She gave us recommendations on things to do in the area & the best restaurants to try out. We were able to check in early because no one had stayed the night before, so she sent us the check-in instructions and we got to unpack and enjoy the condo even earlier than expected! The whole experience couldn’t have been more perfect.
One tip to prospective guests that we didn’t realize beforehand...at least during our stay, GSSRC had an 11:00pm “curfew” policy. At 11 on the dot every night, the security guard made his rounds in the pool area and sent everyone out. He even monitored the guests on their balconies and intervened if he deemed them “disruptive” (which often meant just sitting outside talking casually).
This wasn’t a huge problem, as we were able to walk over to the beach and continue to visit with our guests with waves rolling in through the night. But since a lot of our families made the 10 hour trip down from Indiana, it would’ve been ideal to know about this policy, or even be allowed to sit in the pool area just outside our rooms and socialize together in a quiet and respectful manner (the majority of our guests were also staying at GSSRC, as well, and were age 30+).
Overall, the trip was more than we could’ve hoped for. We look forward to returning!

Katelyn, I am so glad that we could play a small part of your important day. The pictures were just beautiful!! Come see us again soon.
We came to Gulf Shores over spring break for my daughter’s volleyball tournament and wanted to stay on the beach. This little condo was perfect! Very clean, bright, cheery and beachy! Beds and furniture are newer and super comfortable. Balcony overlooks the pool area (which is very pretty) and lagoon and was a relaxing place to drink coffee in the morning. The owner was awesome! Very communicative and thoughtful (she supplies a “starter kit” of a couple laundry pods, dishwasher tabs and paper towels....so handy!). She reached out by text in the days leading up to our stay letting me know the best times to shop on “check-in” day (the first Saturday of spring break!) and offering insight into how to avoid the crazy spring break traffic getting to the condo. We loved having a (newer) washer and dryer in the unit so we could return home with clean clothes. We stayed with 2 adults and 2 teenagers which was probably the max for this unit.

Christine, thank you so much for the kind words! We try to keep people wanting to come back for more. Come see us again!
