Great place! Great time! Will LOVE to try and book this again with my daughter and her friends. One suggestion is somehow someway have a better walk way to the beach! We learned after first morning walking in sand was AWFUL!!!! But we "cheated" and walked through the parking lot of the place across street!!!

Was a steal for spring break to take my daughter and her friends for their Senior break! Plenty of sleeping room so everyone had a bed. It was clean, well equipped, and had everything u need. Not a crowded complex, pool open late and the view is like no other!
Gwen S.on 03/25/2017
We had a wonderful stay, unfortunately we had to leave early. There was definitely enough room for the 3 of us.
The only thing that was bad was the internet connection, but we got through it. We plan on booking again! :)
Rocco S.on 03/18/2017
We had a wonderful stay. The room was very accommodating and clean and would stay again.

Danielle C.on 08/14/2016
This place was so fantastic, affordable, and beautiful. It was so easy to go to the beach everyday and take the kids. Everything you would want to do is very close. We LOVED everything about it and will be back!
Side note: everyone that I had to talk to for the travel, weather, etc were extremely helpful, making for an all around amazing vacation.
Brandi R.on 07/12/2016
We had a great stay. The condo was nice & perfect for what we needed. The elevator was extremely slow & very hot! Of it got stuck, you probably die. The a/c went out the 2nd day. Although they responded promptly, it took a long time to fix it. We were actually without the a/c over night. But the owner refunded me $100 plus tax for the inconvenience, so that was nice. I would stay here again.

We had a wonderful time on our Gulf Shores Spring Break Vacation. The condo was great! Great location. Very quiet.
Not real complaints. Unit needs a new shower head and dryer lint screen. Other that that a great place.
Reanna L.on 08/09/2015
We loved the rental, for my husband and I and child, this was a perfect size, great location and overall a perfect experience.
Danielle H.on 08/01/2015
Overall a good experience.
Elevator-hot, slow, broke down during our stay.
Sofa bed-thin, saggy mattress.
Laundry door-fell off when opened.
Loft beds felt "lumpy".
Living room tv "fuzzy".
Loft tv not connected to cable, went unused.
Looks as cute as pictured.
Nice view from deck.
Shower-nice water pressure, never went cold.
Comfortable bedroom bed.
Nice location to pier/beach/tourist attractions.

Joseph M.on 06/03/2015
We really enjoyed our stay at Grand Beach Resort. It was close to everything, including the beach. It was nice and clean when we arrived. This place felt like home to us.
Traci M.on 05/23/2015
We had a great time. Loved the condo! It had everything we needed. It was very clean and well-organized. Incredible view with beach access directly across the street. So much better than staying in a hotel. Will definitely be back!
Regina C.on 09/02/2014
Clean room, great view, excellent location. Internet could be better.
Jenny W.on 08/09/2014
Thank you for the wonderful stay! We decided to plan a last minute trip with our kids and we could not believe our luck in finding this condo. We had a wonderful time and already plan on booking the same condo next year!Could not ask for a better location and price!The elevator was REALLY slow and there was a wasp problem with them building nest underneath the stairs. My son even got stung but we called Bethany and she immediately had someone out to spray.
Jennifer S.on 07/21/2014
Our vacation rental was amazing! Clean condo, exactly as they described it, family oriented, and great location! Definitely will be back hopefully next year if it's available!!! LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF OUR VACATION!
Angela C.on 07/12/2014
We were vacationing with the family. Some of the kids and grand kids were staying at the State Park. The location was the nearest to the park. We enjoyed every thing that the park had to offer except sleeping with sandy feet. We will definitely do this again.
A wonderful week away from home! Our family looks forward to our little visits to Gulf Shores. We have always stayed at Grand Beach, and love it! This condo had all we needed and more. We look forward to our next getaway.
Great experience! Nice accommodations. Easy access to the beach. Pool was great. VERY family friendly!!
For sure coming back, rental was cozy and felt homey
Could not have asked for a better place to stay. Everything was exactly as described. We had a great trip!
The condo was cute and perfect for a short stay. The overall condition of the facility was not great, but was a good value for the cost.
I have stayed at Grand Beach many. many times in the past, but this was my first experience with ALBVR. I write this review in comparison with all of my other stays at GB. I love the location, and I felt I got a fair price on the rental considering that the Shrimp Festival was scheduled at the tail end of my dates. Check-in was really simple. In fact, it was the best I have experienced in past 12 years! I called ALBVR and since it was not occupied the night before check-in and there was no maintenance scheduled, they graciously allowed check-in three hours early. That is SO important when travelling with young kids! The condo was clean on surface, but did need good deep cleaning (under appliances and furniture). Also, the ice maker did not work at all. This was mentioned in other reviews that I had read on the web, so I was surprised that it was still broken. The main TV went out for about 3 days, but mysteriously came back into service. Also, the bedroom TVs did not work at all for the duration of the all fairness, I did not report this until after I was home, because we don't really watch too much anyway. I mention it only because it may be important to others considering the rental. I notified ALBVR when we got home that I accidentally drove home with the paper parking passes. I offered to mail them back to avoid a charge, but I didn't have to do that. ALBVR replaced them for me, and I REALLY appreciated that. I like being in a smaller condo, but there were a lot more people staying there than I have seen before, so it was more difficult to get any alone time in the hot tub than usual. I have had numerous interactions several people who actually live at Grand Beach and they are all so nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this unit to people who don't care about having the fanciest place to stay, and like a place a little less crowded than the big condos!
LOCATION WAS GREAT, WALK TO BEACH WAS SHORT, GREAT LOCATION - EASY TO GET TO RESTAURANTS, LOVED THAT IT WAS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO THE HANGOUT!!!!
ELEVATOR TO THE 5TH FLOOR DID NOT WORK THE ENTIRE TIME WE WERE THERE. SINCE WE WERE ON THE PENTHOUSE LEVEL WE THOUGHT THERE COULD BE A CODE SO I CALLED THE MANAGEMENT COMPANY AND THE GIRL ANSWERING THE PHONE COULD NOT HELP. SHE TOLD ME I WAS AT THE WRONG ELEVATOR (I WAS NOT). THE COUPLE NEXT TO US HAD BEEN THERE 5 DAYS AND SAID IT HAD NOT WORKED SINCE THE DAY THE ARRIVED AND THEY HAD REPEATEDLY CALLED ABOUT THE PROBLEM. THE COULD HAVE AT LEAST PUT A SIGN ON IT SO THAT GUESTS KNEW IT WAS OUT OF ORDER.
BUILDING PROPER COULD USE SOME MAINTENANCE AND SPRUCING UP. BBQ AREA IS A JOKE -- WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO GO TO THE PARKING LOT TO BBQ.
POOL AREA WAS VERY NICE AND THE COVERED DECK NEAR THE POOL AN ADDED BONUS.
Great location with awesome view.
I was a little leery about renting another persons house/ condo, but thought I would give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the process was! It was right across the street from the beach, and having an extra room upstairs was like having an entire extra bedroom! The few complaints I have are the deep cleaning of the unit- It was visibly clean, but the side of the fridge and stove were dirty, along with the baseboards and there was lots of dust on the ceiling fans that fell when they were used. The fridge was warm when we arrived (i figured it had just been turned on), and it took several days for the inside to cool down. Also, I would suggest that you not connect the magnetic lid on the washer, so you can see the sign for the laundry (doing the towels separately). Other than those few things, we really enjoyed the condo! We will definitely use this company again in the future!
We had to call the management company for a plumber after only being in the condo for about 5 minutes. Toilet in main bath leaked. Plumber came promptly but was unable to fix it until next day. Turned on ice maker. It made 2 trays of ice then just ran water that froze in the tray and eventually the bottom of the freezer. After calling a second time the ice maker was fixed. Beds were worn out mattresses with foam toppers, couch sunk way down when sitting, recliner too large for normal person to sit in. Floors were very dirty. No light bulbs in lamps. Needs a complete update. Window blinds on the sunny side were missing about half of the slats. Location would be great otherwise.
