Water views and activities abound at Gulf Village, where the Gulf of Mexico is our front yard and Little Lagoon is our back yard. Dive in and take a swim, catch some waves on a surfboard, enjoy the natural beauty from a kayak or try some shore-fishing for pompano. Or, if relaxing is on your agenda, then all you have to do is take a few steps and enjoy lounging on the sugar-white sands while emerald waves lap the shoreline.
Comprised of a high-rise building and cottage units, these Alabama vacation rentals are great for many different types of family trips to the Gulf Coast. Take advantage of exclusive access for Gulf Village guests to the Little Lagoon pier across the street and enjoy quiet fishing, crabbing or simply watching a brilliant magenta sunset. Wind down in one of the two onsite pools, or play your best round ever at nearby golf courses.

Right on the beautiful beach at Gulf Shores. Apartment had everything we needed. Very clean and comfortable.

Where do I start? This is a one bedroom suite that is very small. There’s barely enough room to move around the bed. The kitchen is tiny and surrounded by lattice as a divider between the kitchen and living area. No dishwasher, washer/dryer, etc. pictures are very deceiving. There is one washer/dryer in a common area just around the corner from your room. Cost is $2 to wash and $2 to dry. The balcony is not private at all and needs updated patio furniture. We arrived around 7:45pm on a Saturday evening. It was probably one of the hottest nights in the summer of 2018. The AC was blowing warm air so the room was very warm. We called the after hours number and they said they would contact Anchor Management. I asked how long it would be before we would get a call back since we had been in the road for 15 hours. The call service couldn’t tell me. Thirty minutes later and still no call. We needed up calling back 3 times before finally being adamant that they get someone on the line while we were on hold. That’s when we finally reached Ashley. Ashely was amazing. She let us know she had just been notified and would have a service rep out ASAP. The rep came working there next 15-20 minutes and determined the system had to be replaced. Ashley was initially concerned they wouldn’t have another place to put us, but she eventually found one down the street (Islands Winds West—much nicer). When we arrived at the Islands Winds West room it had not been cleaned from previous tenants (around 10:30pm). We contacted Ashley directly and she had the cleaning service come do a quick clean up, then they came back the next morning to do a full cleaning. During the cleaning, I noticed the guy only spraying a chemical on the bed spread and blanket. I ask if that’s all they do and he said yes. That’s what we all do. Not enough time to wash in between tenants. How gross and unsanitary. I can’t imagine the Health Departmwnt knows that&

We had a fun time at Gulf Shores. It was easy to check in. It was a good experience with this rental company.

We had a great visit! Was a little warm in the bedroom but we bought a fan to help circulate the air back to the bedroom.

When we came to visit in 2011 there were five of us. Our condo was beautiful and clean and was located near to services. It was clean, modern and fully stocked. This year there were only four of us and I am very sorry to report that our location was a mile further from where we were before, was cramped, not well maintained and was certainly not clean. We left our bags and bedding outside and cleaned before we even moved our stuff in for the week. The word gross probably best describes the initial impression. Frankly the unit reminded me more of a fishing cabin in Canada than a beach front condominium. Now...please understand we are from Indiana in the middle of winter...and made it to the beach. We made the most of it and frankly enjoyed our vacation in spite of the very poor accommodations.

Was very nice, while the condo was small but perfect for my trip.
I was surprised when we arrived and had to climb 4 flights of steps the pictures were deceiving showed elevator balcony with beach view
Everything was great except the ac unit is a wall unit like in a hotel. It does not adequately cool the whole unit. The bedroom and bathroom never got cooled off.
First night was **** trying to sleep in the heated bedroom. The lattice work is hard on toes of a morning in kitchen, Pans didn't fit the oven. Overall - BEACH was Great!
Very disappointed with the unit. It smelled moldy, dusty, smoky and old. The hot water ran out before I could get a bath and the water was brown. Yuck!!I do have to say that the rental company was nice and tried to help. The maintenance man sprayed air freshener and came to check on the water heater. (two visits!!) Not my idea of a vacation. Other units had a tables and chairs on the deck, but not this unit. It was not worth the money!
Everything was great, however housekeeping needs to be a little better. We found a half of a blue pill in the bathroom on the shelf above the toilet, i had a 6 and 7 year old staying in the room with me if they got a hold of that pill it could have been bad!!!
The unit needs a deep cleaning and more attention to cleaning details. The dishes in the cabinet were stained and dirty. I always bring my own cleaning supplies and clean sinks, counters & toilets before use. My cleaning wipes were visibly dirty.
Our unit was understandably small. However, the proximity to the beach is something you cannot beat. The only problem we had was the bathroom being gross upon check in. There was a large amount of long black hair on the walls of the shower. All in all, it was great to walk right onto the beach and walking 2 minutes back to our rental to eat lunch and get back out on the beach. There is a lot of things you will need to bring that we did not anticipate (extra toilet paper, dish soap, hair dryer, disinfecting wipes and even extra trash bags). Also, it was very inconvenient to not have wifi in the room because we constantly used data to look up activities, restaurants, etc.
The condo was a little small by it worked for my fiancé and I and our daughter. I wouldnt recommend it for any more than that. We loved the location. We were right on the beach so we didn't have to walk far. We bought beach chairs and an umbrella versus renting the ones on the beach. We left them down there most of the week and no one even bothered them. It was nice not to have to pack everything up every night. The covered parking is nice. It kept our car really cool. Overall, it was a nice place to stay. We hope to go back next year.
The condo was cute and perfect for a couple. The beach is just a few steps away which was great. Only downsides were the lack of a view and the air conditioner... The air conditioner worked, but didn't circulate well into the bedroom making it a little warm when trying to sleep. Overall a really great place for the price!
