The condo was clean and accommodating. The only downside was something that is not the condo owners fault, but just something that happened. The water heater shorted and blew the breakers. Not just the breaker in the room, but had to be reset in a main box that was locked and the maintenance gentleman seem to have a hard time finding the correct key for access. We were without power for long enough that the condo was very warm that evening and the food spoiled in the refrigerator.

We loved our stay here! No complaints. We will definitely stay here again. We loved the location. It was near town and right on the beach. The room was wonderful. Very relaxing! We definitely recommend staying here.

Had a great stay at 1C. The place is nicely decorated, was very clean upon arrival and the bed was actually comfortable. The air conditioning works very well. I wish the fan in the living room would have worked without the lights going on, apparently it's all or nothing with that fixture. The view is amazing. Found all items I needed in the cabinets except there's a need for a new frying pan for sure. Tried to cook eggs and it stuck like crazy and the pan was peeling like crazy. Def need some new pans.

We were in town for the USSSA Baseball World Series, and had the BEST time! The unit was a good size for a 1BR, and my son and his friend loved the hallway bunks. Very clean, SUPER FAST internet connection and LOVED the beach view. The Clearwater has great parking and is super close to great dining and attractions - you can walk to the Hangout. Very easy check in/out procedures and the price was great for the week!

Pictures dont do it justice. Had a blast! The bunk beds are made for kids, thankfull it was just my girlfriend and I. Make sure you read the bill they charge you for 2 parking passes.

My little family of 4 had a great vacation in Gulf Shores. The condo worked out perfectly for us and we also loved being on an end of the beach that was less crowded. We had everything we needed- although it may be time for a new pan for scrambling eggs.The condo is older but clean and decorated in a cute style. I spent many moments sitting on the adirondack chairs on the balcony gazing out at the ocean. The boys loved their bunkbeds.

We stayed in this condo for our anniversary weekend. It's cute, comfy, convenient to stores & restaurants and sooo close to the water. We loved it and had a great time!

My husband and I wanted a quick get a way with out 6 year old and were over the moon excited with our stay here. The location was amazing,as we could not have been closer to the beach! The condo was very clean and comfortable. They could do some minor updates on the bathroom faucets and the vacuum needed a new bag because it spit out sand when being used but other than that it was awesome! We were also shocked with the safety. We could leave our belongings in the beach while we went inside for breaks and food and our things were never tampered with. Our family will definitely be renting from here again. It was a great stay!!

We had a pleasant stay at Clearwater. Small condo complex with no frills and that is exactly what we were looking for. Nice and relaxing. I would recommend that they put the unit number on the lockbox for easy identification! There were 3 lockboxes and none of them were identified. When your arms are filled with luggage, etc. dickering around trying to figure out which lockbox is yours is quite frustrating.
John L.on 07/27/2015
Enjoyed it, will be back.
Chris R.on 07/04/2015
Great Review. The only negative was the Wi-fi, but I believe that is being fixed
Jeff W.on 06/20/2015
Overall very good experience. The only complaints were the lockbox was very difficult to open and some of the cookware needs to be replace. Overall would stay there again.
William B.on 03/07/2015
Unit was a bit old and out dated although comfortable and pretty well kept. Problem was sleeping with young people in adjoining units were having late night parties which was disturbing. This was especially bad after I asked your agent if there were any "Spring Breakers" in this bldg. which she assured me there were not. The price for this older outdated unit was excessive in my opinion!!! Thanks, Bill & Cheryl Beabout

I love the Clearwater condominium complex, it is low density and close to everything. This stay we were in 1C, I paid 10.00each for 2 parking permits which didn't even have dates on them and were nothing more than a copied piece of paper, and I thoroughly explained that I would not have more than 1 car. The unit was clean, but the furniture needs updating. the coffee pot did not work, but I emailed and was brought a new one, so that was great. The dryer does not work very well. I was glad the bed was king size and the mattress was excellent.I never could get the WIFI to work, used my 4G the entire stay. The bedroom TV works, but does not have a good picture. Overall it was good, just mainly needs updating.

Beautiful beach and perfect weather. This 1st fl condo is a great location and nice view of beach and pool from balcony. We arrived on Sunday from a weekend fising trip in Louisanna. I needed to wash beach towels only to discover the pump on the washing machine was broken. On Monday morning around 9:00 A.M., I called ALBVR and reported the problem and was told maintenance man would be there shortly. Around 2:30 I called again and was informed the condo owner had called his repairman and it would now be Tuesday morning before repair. On Tuesday at 11:30 A.M. I called ALBVR again trying to get status of repairman and he finally showed up sometime after 1:00 and made the repair. There was a lack of communication with ALBVR as I had to call them each time for updates on the repair. The kitchen is in need of some simple & inexpensive updates such as a new coffee pot. You have to hold the on button for coffee to brew & microwave display is unreadable. The drip pans on the stove are nasty & I did not use. The TV in the bedroom has lines running through the picture but the bed sleeps very good. Overall I would rate my experience as a THREE.

We rented this condo knowing it was not one of the biggest and newest condos, we were very pleased. Check in and check out as well as the key location upon arrival was great. The condo location was superb. It made for a seamless and very pleasant stay. The condo was VERY clean.
Rachel M.on 07/10/2014
We enjoyed our stay here. The view and beach access was great. The condo it's self was a little under par but not bad. One remote was missing, the shower would not turn off without a screw driver and the stair well stunk. Maintance did come and fix the shower on the second day. It was ok for the price.
Very happy with this condo, just big enough for 4 adults to be comfy(we had 3) This states new refrig, but we noticed when we shut either door we had to hold the other door shut to keep it from opening slightly.If not noticed the refig. would run continues I would also check the sink disposal makes a crunchy noise We did NOT use it.These are not complaints just info for you.We were very comfy there.Will remember this one.Nice pool also
Couch was in horrible shape to sit on. Very uncomfortable. All other furniture was good.
Everything about the condo helped make our family vacation just perfect.
The condo was everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen had everything we needed and had plenty of linens for the bath.
This condo is directly on the beach and was well kept. The building itself is a bit older than others nearby but we didn't see anything wrong with it all all and it was wall kept. The owners have kept their unit fresh with a new couch, dining table & chairs and decor. You've got a great balcony and view. It is right by the pool so it could have potential for noise in the peak times but it could also be a bonus to keep an eye on your children if you didn't want to be right at the pool with them. It wouldn't discourage me to stay though but if you wanted total peace and quiet, you might not want to. The only negative thing I will say is the bathroom is small . It has THE most amazing showerhead in the shower though ! I literally did not want to get out and my husband commented that it was great as well. Probably the best shower I've ever had at any hotel, condo, etc. I've had. I know people get on travel sites and complain and nit pick every little thing at times about where they stay not being up to par. I truly believe these people want a Hilton stay for their money and want to bash. You cannot expect to pay 1/3 of the price of a brand new or nearly new facility and realistically expect that's what you'll find. Yes, there were some drywall imperfection and chips here and there but hey- I didn't pay for the Hilton. I paid for a nice, clean, beachfront condo and that's exactly what I got. My husband and I own 3 places ourselves and ours was booked for the winter. We took a last minute trip to relax and will definitely keep this place on our list if we need to stay again in the area if ours happens to be booked. People spend their hard earned money when they vacation and this owner is like we are, they care about your stay & their investment enough to make sure they've put their money and effort into having a fresh, nice place.
This unit was perfect for our family of 5! There were no surprises when we arrived as the description of the unit was very accurate. The unit was clean and very well maintained. Some of the kitchen appliances are dated, but work as they are supposed to. We did have a slight issue with the dryer not wanting to completely dry towels, but a few minutes over the rail on the balcony fixed that! The entire process from reservation through check out was super easy! We are already discussing our return visit.
The location was perfect. We enjoyed the view very much. The condo appeared clean but it didnt take long to realize it had not been cleaned recently. There was a thin layer of dust on everything. The handles on the bathroom were disgusting. The bedspread was soiled in several places. There were bugs and spiders/webs along the ceiling corners in some places. The cooking pans were so bad I had to go buy a new skillet. Overall the location was wonderful but the condo itself was just not up to par.
We had a great time at Clearwater. Great view of the Gulf. Would stay here again. For rookies like us staying in a condo, the directions for opening the key lock box could have been better, and an explanation about the trash chute would have been nice (we were looking for a bin outside the condo!). Otherwise, we very much enjoyed our stay at Clearwater.
Clearwater 1C has comfortable furniture, my husband loved the recliner and the King Bed is very comfy. Unit was clean. TV in bedroom needs replacing. We learned that if you're on the first floor above the garage during the colder months, bring slippers! The floor is very cold! Haha. Enjoyed or stay overall and would recommend this unit.
This place was great! Great location! Very comfortable inside the room. Nice beach! I think this is the best time to visit the beach! I will be back! Thanks!
The property was very clean and the location was wonderful. The only complaint that I had was the fact that with this being an older complex, the walls were pretty thin and you could hear the other guest, doors closing, and etc. all through the night. I would stay here again even with this aggravation. Overall we had a wonderful time and we would stay here again.
We enjoyed our stay at clearwater unit 1c. It was very clean and we had a great view of the pool and ocean. The only complaint we had was the TV wasn't clear in the bedroom and we couldn't figure out the TV in the living room. Also, the dryer made a terrible noise. We still would stay here again.
