First & foremost, I LOVE the location and I always rent a condo within walking distance to Sea N Suds - they save me & my hubs a spot at the oyster bar whenever we're in town.
For the condo - aesthetically and functionality: award goes to the kitchen! The furniture is very well loved and needs to be upgraded. The small bedroom with 2 twin beds had a sour smell and we spend the entire weekend with that door closed. The DVD player (only one) in the den did not work, but the cable worked great in the den & MBR. I've always loved that the Boardwalk's balconies have 2 access points - 1 from the den, 1 from the MBR... BUT the door knob on the MBR side did not turn and someone had taped over the mechanics of the door & to open it we had to pry it open with a flat utensil.
The front door has a key pad entry - that is ALWAYS a plus! BUT you are unable to secure yourself inside the condo - there is no separate dead bolt and the security latch was not properly installed and DOES NOT latch.
Both bathrooms are small, but completely functional. The A/C worked without a hitch and all the ceiling fans worked. Washer & Dryer worked great, we didn't have an occasion to use the dishwasher.
All and all, I would come back - just please fix the smell, the doors, and replace the MBR mattress.

Well, the condo was fine. Basically what we expected. The dryer did not work and this was a bit of a problem. When you only bring a couple beach towels and the condo only supplies 4 towels for 4 nights, this can be a problem. They did replace the dryer on the last day. The concern comes from the fact that the agency knew the dryer was broken prior to our arrival and did not tell us. We had to call for extra towels and they did supply those. I am also not happy about an additional 82.62 charge on my cc that I was never made aware of.

Our vacation was exactly what we wanted, low stress and no worries. We hung out on the beach, played at the pool, and went out to eat. The condo was on the 6th floor, perfect! Elevators were quick, beach in front not to crowded, or the pool. The only draw back was the parking, they need more. Overall great time we would def. return.

We Loved the location, we found the view was very enjoyable. However, some things concerned me, especially when I dropped my Ink pen on the floor in the bedroom and I bent down to pick it up and there was medicine laying under the edge of the bed. If was as if the room was never vacuumed. In addition, there was only one little light bulb over the master bath, and the flowers on the table had mole on them. The door locks were broken but the company we leased from had someone fix it with the hour, I was very happy about that. Yes I would stay there again because it was very convenient .

This is a great unit...I like the floor plan. Well equipped, but needs new carpet and furniture. We smelled a faint musty/moldy smell all week...the carpet feels like it needs a deep cleaning or to be replaced. The den furniture seems worn out.....that being said - with new furniture and carpet, this would be a show place

Have stayed in numerous units at Boardwalk for years. This was one of the nicer units. Everything was updated and clean. Definitely will keep this unit in mind for future trips. Very friendly & helpful security staff.

Very nice location and convenient to most necessities.

We stayed June 13 - 20, 2015. The pictures look great, but there were a lot of things they don't show.
1. Parking is terrible. Sea n Suds is next door & they share the parking lot. You have to find a parking space that has a pylon cone in order to be able to park. There are not enough for the complex. We had to park across the street more than once. The parking lot is also tight if you have a truck or SUV.
2. Trying to get into the front door took a lot of work. There is damage to the door jamb so it is very hard to get the door locked and unlocked. The maintenance guy came and said the prior people were hard on the door and he said he fixed it. It still was very hard to lock and unlock even after he said it was fixed. I don't believe it was the fault of the people before us as the door jamb is in terrible shape. It looks like it has been this way for a while.
3. Right when you enter the door, you see a piece of drywall hanging on the wall. I showed it to the maintenance guy when he was there so we wouldn't be blamed for it and he said he knew about it. He said there used to be a picture there and apparently a prior person like it and ripped it off the wall. He said it had been that way for a while. If they knew about it and it was been a while since it happened, why hasn't it been repaired? Very bad first impression.
4. The floors were not very clean. It looks like the cleaning crew took a mop to them but missed the corners. When you sit on the toilets and look in the corners, they haven't been cleaned for quite some time and are very dirty.

Great time, weather, views and location. Loved this condo.
Trish C.on 09/18/2014
The condo was perfect for our stay. Plenty of room and perfect beach view.
Perfect location, property was well kept and cleaned daily. I would suggest having the sofa replaced or recovered because there are worn holes in all the seat cushions. We have a 3 year old boy and I was constantly worried about him putting his fingers in the holes so after the 2nd day I got a blanket out of the closet and covered the cushions so he wouldn't make them worse. And I would suggest the carpets be cleaned or removed. Overall we enjoyed our stay and think this is a great place!
Need to supply nicer cooking ware,Needs new bathroom showers the carpet was mildewed smell and the washer was too. Some of the dishes were dirty with dried food on the plates and some of the utensils. Coffee mugs were dirty too. Need updated couch and chair in the living room . The couch has a tear and the couch and chair is very worn.
We stayed 9 days. When we arrived Thursday evening its smell moldy and musty. The floors weren't really clean. On Friday morning we noticed the A/C wasn't cooling the place so we called the next day it took them over 4 hours to get someone out there to check it and when they finally got there they just vacuumed out a line and said it would work now. Then after we returned back to the condo late Friday it still wasn't cooling so we had to call yet again and we were getting married on Monday and it was so humid in there. Finally someone came late Saturday afternoon and fixed it. Condo is very out dated and needs new furniture and needs to have a good deep clean. The kitchen is very nice it was the only thing that has been updated. The pictures on VRBO are a little out dated as well.
Great location and a beautiful view. Nicely updated kitchen and the building was well maintained. Constant cleaning of the outdoor areas.
The condo building and Sea and Suds share parking so finding parking at times was very challenging. The sofa had a large hole worn in one of the cushions. This was not a tear that may have happened recently, but a whole that has been expanding for some time.
Another disappointment were the beds. I do not expect a top quality mattress, the beds were very uncomfortable, especially the twin beds. You when you laid down you could feel the individual springs.
Finally, I am not sure what the facility can do about this since they have a security guard on site, but two days in a row my daughter’s sunglasses were stolen from the side of the pool.
Had a great time. Condo was very beautiful and had everything we needed.
For the most part, the condo was nice. The kitchen was absolutely wonderful! Loved the size, dishwasher, convection oven, & it was fully stocked. Lazy susan door was broke so had to be careful with that. Nice sized living room & master bedroom. Master bedroom matress was good. Second bedroom needs bigger beds & better matresses. This room needs some care. The complex itself was great & wonderful location on the beach. Parking was a bear all week with Sea & Suds vailet parking. The Vailet's were courteous & willing to move any cars in our spot. Other than that, it was a convenient location & walking distance to a lot of shops & restaurants.
The unit is right on the beach and conveniently located. However the parking lot is shared with the valet parking for the Sea N Suds restaurant located behind the condo. We were not made aware of this until we arrived to check in and found no available parking spots. We stayed there a week and only got to park on property twice. The valet parking took the spaces that ere supposed to be for condo use. Condo was nice and clean although there was a an odor that we could have done without. We bought some air fresheners that helped.
The rental experience was extremely convenient and easy. The location was great, although a slightly longer walk to The Hangout than we initially thought.
As far as the condo, the condo was very comfortable and peaceful. The only negative we experienced was the slightly strange odor inside the condo. It wasn't overwhelming, just something strange. A little Febreeze and a candle and we never noticed it again. Overall, we would definitely rent the condo again, we were very happy.
This was first time to Gulf Shores with our family, and was pleased with the condo. Nice view from balcony and condo is close to restaurants and stores.The only problem was the parking, it is shared with a local restaurant, Sea & Suds, so at times we had to park across the street. It seems the customers eating at the restaurant should use parking across the street only since they have no luggage or groceries to carry. Other than this issue, the condo was nice, and clean. I would recommend if you don't mind the parking issues.
