This unit is a part of Castaways Gulf Shores Condominium
Castaways Gulf Shores Condominium may be a little older, but there is a reason people continue coming back to this low density complex. Located near the center of Gulf Shores, it's only a short walk to The Hangout, Island Grill, Sea-N-Suds, gift shops, and the Pink Pony Pub. Or plan a lunch with the whole group in the grilling area which covers the entire bottom level of the building.
When you're done grilling, enjoy a walk on the beach, swim in the outdoor heated pool, or return to your home away from home for a relaxing moment on your private balcony with a view of the Gulf of Mexico.
**Please note that not all of the amenities listed might be available to your specific unit. Please call if you have questions about complex amenities.**

We enjoy going to Castaways due to we have friends that own a condo here and we vacation together. Pros: Overall the condo was in good working condition and clean.
Con: This decor is very dated (like going back to 1980 dated). The beds need to be upgraded. The TVs need to be upgraded. 3 of the 4 TVs were tube TVs. Some of the appliances need to be upgraded. If the condo owner spend around $3000 in these improvements, I would have no complaints.

We chose the same condo two years in a row. That condo is 3A. It is very well appointed and when the doors are shut you cannot hear the ocean at all. When the doors are open not only is the view spectacular but the sound is just what you would imagine it would be. More than likely the next time we come to Gulf Shores we will stay there again! Thanks Anchor Vacation Rentals!

We enjoyed our stay and will be back. The only complaint that I have is the elevator was out of service a lot.

Master bed was very uncomfortable and very old. Could use some detail cleaning, under furniture, vents, floors could use more than a quick scrub.
Loved working with Candace at Anchor, would use this Co again,

The condo was very well designed and appointed. Thoroughly enjoyed it and hope to come back soon.
Pros:Adequate space that served its purpose for a one week family vacation. Location is close enough to walk to several good restaurants.Cons: decor and appliances are extremely dated. Beds could use new mattresses, TV in living room is a square tube TV. As far as the property itself, the elevator is HOT and HUMID and the parking lot is so bad that we will never stay here again. Some parking spots were impossible to park in with a pickup truck. We had the option of parking in a restaurant parking lot down the street, but not very convenient without a crosswalk available.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Castawys 3A. The location was perfect -- central to all the amenities Gulf Shores has to offer. The unit was very clean and spacious, with a great view of the beach and gulf. From our unit we could see the sunrise and aspects of the sunset. The elevator was questionable, but held up during the month we were there. The wi-fi was spotty, but we were told that the system is going to be replaced this spring. We have worked with Anchor Vacations for several years now and find them very pleasant and professional. We enjoyed birding and hiking in Bon Secur Wildlife Refuge and other natural areas, attending lectures at many sites throughout the area, and of course dining at the myriad of restaurants Gulf Shores has to offer.
Parking is terrible. Rules for compact cars in the middle lanes is not enforced. Husband and I had to move our vehicles back and forth in order to park depending on which one of us could fit where. People take two spots to ensure they have at least one...horrible.
Everything in condo worked. Clean enough, although I bleached the tub and shower because it did not look clean. Would possibly rent this one again...maybe. Great location. Have to sacrifice the parking though.
We rented through Anchor Vacations. They were very nice to deal with. Castaways 3A is definitely older and in need of updates. However, the condo was clean and suited our needs just fine. I'm not there to worry about how old the appliances are or if the furniture is the most modern. I'm there for the beach. We had 4 girls with us and they each had their own bed and plenty of room to spread out. We would stay here again.
It was very clean also loved all the camera it had great security there was 7 of us we had a blast loved it was close to everything go to Lambert restaurant.
Condo was clean and had easy access to the beach and fun restaurants (Sea n Suds and The Hangout). Just right for 2 teenage boys. Nothing too fancy or elaborate. Balcony was awesome and the view of the beach from the main bedroom was very cool.
Very cool place to stay. Right on the beach and easy to get around the beach also. We had a 3 BR and very roomy. It had every thing you need for our stay.
