This was an adorable condo and a perfect size for our family. We loved the complex and the location was perfect. The pool was great and we spent a lot of time there after hanging out on the beach. I will recommend that if you don't like a firm mattress, you need to bring a soft mattress pad. Crazy firm. My husband never complains about mattresses but even he slept poorly. My only real complaint was that the property managers were horrible with communication. We didn't get any information from them about where to check in or see anything until the day we were to check in...and that's only because I called them. We had no idea we had to check in off site and they were only open until 6. Thank goodness my parents were already on their way down there and could check in for us. After my parents checked in and went to the condo, they discovered the internet was down. The only number they had was the emergency contact so they called them and were swiftly told that wasn't an emergency and simply ended the conversation. We ended up calling the internet provider and working it out with a technician over the phone. I was a little shocked the property manager was so apathetic towards the situation. As far as the condo being stocked, I agree with other reviewers that it was bare basics. We didn't even have dish soap or anything to scrub pans. There was dishwasher detergent but only enough packets for one run a day and there were times we wanted to reuse a pan but had no way to wash it. We will definitely rent in Ocean Reef again because we loved the complex. However, we probably won't rent this particular condo mainly because we were disappointed with the property management company.

We had a great time staying at Ocean Reef during our stay in Gulf Shores. Condo was great and super quick access to the beach. The only thing I would change is providing stackable laundry units in the condos. Would definitely stay here again!

We enjoyed our stay. Condo was better than expected. The outside has been updated with coastal color. I loved how close everything was to the condo. We wished the pool was heated as it was hard to swim in such cool water during spring break. The pool area was very nice. The size of our was spacious for the 5 of us.

Had a great time on our weekend stay. Loved that the condos where beachfront although this unit isn't. Traffic noise was loud at times and my kids said the sleeper sofa was a little uncomfortable. Overall, it served our needs and we would rent it again.

Ocean Reef 111 was beautiful. Clean. Great location. In walking distance to many things.

This was our first time in Gulf Shores, We had 5 adults and 3 children. The Condo was very nice for the most part it was clean. The Queen beds were nice but the pull out sofa bed is in need of a better mattress even the kids who are 4 and 7 had a hard time sleeping because of the old worn out bedding. One of the Queen bed in the loft had vomit on it which wasn't seen until the next morning not sure how house cleaning missed that but it was taken care of after I called. The floor always felt like you had sand on your feet no matter how much I sweep the floor.The second bedroom is actually an open loft with a very small half bath. The pool was great and the beach beautiful I loved that it was a private beach and you could use tubes and rafts and my granddaughter who is only 1 could play in her little floating flamingo. The Condo was in a great location with lots of stuff not far away.I would stay here again but I would try to get a view of the beach not the road.

This was our first family trip to the beach. We loved every part of it. The condo was awesome. Anchor Vacations was wonderful to work with. We will definitely use Anchor next time and we will also try to get the same condo.

On many occasions throughout our time in Gulf Shores, my family expressed that this was the best vacation. The boys loved the loft bedroom and the close proximity to the beach. We were within walking distance to souvenir stores and The Hangout. The property was very nice and clean. Lisa at Anchor was very nice and helpful. The vacation was easy to set up and went without any hiccups. We will definitely be back!

Ithe was very nice the condo was very clean it on the beach it was roomy I would rent it again and anchor rep Monica made it very easy she found what we was looking for Inothing our price range thanks guys
The kitchen is not well stocked with basic kitchen tools and equipment,frying pans in extremely poor shape, very dull and therefore dangerous knives. Would have nice to know there were 4 flights of stairs to contend with as my dog is blind and has to be carried, best part was dog friendliness and location was good. No real ocean view. I would recommend the owner read commentary in guest book.
We had a wonderful time! The condo was sufficient for our family. We spent very little time inside, but we were able to relax while there. The furniture could use a little updating, but the beach was our main interest. The location was perfect! We are already looking for time to go again! The personnel at Anchor Vacations were friendly and seemed sincerely concerned that we have a great time. We did!!!
The condo location and the beach area was amazing. However, the dirty condition of the rental unit was very disappointing. Tub, floors, and comforter were not clean. Dirty baking pans were in the cabinet. The floors haven't seen a mop in a very long time, just a light sweeping was done. We could not walk around the unit in our bare feet. We had hopes of making this an annual event for our family, but we will look for other properties next year. The only good thing was the location and the very clean, beautiful beaches just outside of our door.
The condo was okay as far as cleanliness. We definitely had to do some dusting when we got there but other than that it was good. Loved that it was close to the beach!!! Didn't really get to enjoy pool much, it was usually very overcrowded. Did not realize there were so many stairs to take and that was hard for my mother in law. We will do more research next time. We will definitely recommend to others and stay again. Loved that it was pet friendly. Hopefully see you next year.
Our rental was super clean,super spacious,and right on the beach!!!! We had a blast!!! Everyone is very friendly. Anchor Vacations made the process very easy and they are very personable. We will be returning for another amazing time next year. BTW make sure to stop by the Flip Flop Deli for ice cream and pizza they are super fun!!!!
It was pretty easy working with Anchor! The price was reasonable and the accommodations were nice. We will stay here again and recommend it to others for the future.
The condo was like the pictures showed. Was expecting 2 full baths not 1.5. The cleaning fee of 90.00 was a bit much since seems like don't have to do much. The 2.00 to wash and dry clothes is a bit much. The beach was awesome and beautiful. The pool was nice also. The way the contract was set up was confusing, thought I was actually staying another night, but ended up in was checking out that day.
With the low rental rate, we knew this was an older unit but other reviews stated how clean the unit was. As we checked into the unit, we checked over the place and it was filthy, the kitchen sink and shower were leaking. Called office to request maintenance and cleaning. No one ever showed to remedy and check stairs and railings that were in poor condition but no one showed all week as office manager promised. There were dirty sheets on the beds; the hideway bed in the couch was unusable; there was dust on air returns and all furnishings. 1st day at the beach and we were forced to clean before we could get comfortable. Management refused to move to "clean" unit. The facility is older but with the pool and proximity to the beach and local attraction made it nice BUT the management needs to maintain the spot and it wouldn't be horrible for a cheap getaway. We asked Anchor Vacations for a refund of the cleaning fee since we had to re-clean but heard nothing. Rent at your own risk!
The condo was nice and in a great location. The climbing the stairs was a bit much and might have been a problem for any one older. But other than that it was great. Plenty of room, clean and I was very satisfied with the place over all. The pool was very nice and clean and large enough to handle the size and occupancy of the condos. Access to the beach was great and only a few feet to walk. The place was conveniently located near plenty of shopping, dining and other activities. It was nicely decorated and modern. And the keyless entry to the condo was really nice. Didn't have to worry about keeping up with keys. That was really a plus. Me and my two teenage sons had a great time. Would definitely recommend it.
Had no problems with the condo we rented. It was clean, located right on beach, and had a nice pool and grill area centered in the complex. The kitchen was well equipped. dryers that are offered at the complex broke and we didn't have anyone to contact on the matter, but that was the only bad thing. Over all a wonderful stay in this complex I would recommend ocean reef 111
The place was very clean. Anchor realty were awesome people and were very helpful. The only complaint was the kitchen was out dated but all still worked properly.
