This unit is a perfect unit for a large family. It may not be as luxurious as other condos, but it is very practical and still very nice. It is away from the craziness of the public beach area, but it's still close enough for convenience. ALBVR is great to work with. Their mobile app helps a ton.
Highlights of this unit: 1) Quick check-in. Really, there is no check-in. You park your car and go straight to your unit! 2) Quiet/Safe area. You can literally hear the waves and kids playing on the beach from the balcony even though you’re across the street. At the most, we had to wait for 2 cars to pass before crossing the street. 3) Large bedrooms. Nice bathrooms. Lots of room! 4) Private floors. Only 2 units per floor, and the elevator opens to your hallway. 4) PRIVATE BEACH ACCESS! You don’t have to worry about fight crowds at the public beach or with large condos, and the boardwalk is a life saver. Never had to worry about fighting for a spot on the beach, and the kids were able to run around without bugging other people. 5) Inside/Outside Pool. One concern with taking kids to the ocean is you have to have a contingency plan in case the weather is bad. The indoor pool is not real nice, but it is convenient if it’s raining outside. Also, the outdoor pool is great for little ones b/c of the zero entry. 6) Easy checkout. When trying to beat the crowds leaving, the last thing you want to do is stand in line to checkout. Basically, you just text that you’ve checked out and leave your keys in the appropriate places. 7) Spectacular views. This unit is far enough of that you get great views of the beach and water.
No real complaints. It would be nice to have more than 2 parking places, and the refrigerator is kind of small.
We will definitely be rebooking this unit next year and hopefully for years to come! Overall, you can find more luxury, but probably not more functionality. We were beyond pleased with our experience!

Mistique 1002 is a great rental property. There were eleven us staying in this property for spring break, and there was enough room for everyone. The views are great from this property and the amenities are nice. Will definitely be returning for summer vacation.

We had a fantastic stay, great location and accommodations. The condo was stocked with everything to get the vacation started. Walmart is only 10 minutes away. It was a great stay. The one issue my party had was due to the fact that we had 4 families staying in the condo (sleeps 12) but there are only 2 parking passes. If you are staying here for a beach vacation only then this might not impact you. There is no option to purchase an additional pass and any additional cars have to park in public parking. We were visiting for a soccer tournament and it was very inconvenient trying to trade out parking passes and shuttle players everywhere. If the condo sleeps 12, there should be more parking available.

Beautiful Condo with great views in most is close to both the Gulf and a lagoon in back.The rooms are clean with good beds and bathrooms.We have enjoyed the month.
Judy P.on 10/19/2016
The condo was as advertised--beautiful. Clean and roomy. Kitchen was well equipped. The ice machine was a wonderful bonus! Loved the wine refrigerator, too. The elevator was fast, getting me to the beach quickly.
The only flaw was when the wind increased, it caused a fearful howling in the condo. If we left the front door cracked, no howl! I would suggest a little attention to stop the noise.
Also, the washing machine did not spin out the water. This was not a big problem but a problem nonetheless.
A sheet upgrade is past due. Sheets were thin and the bottom sheet slipped. The towels were excellent so I don't understand the poor sheets.
Over all these minor things did not hinder our experience. Just a nuisance.

We had a wonderful time staying at Mustique 1002. The condo and it's amenities made for a wonderful vacation. The extra large front balcony was to die for. We had never been in oceanfront accomodations before and it was pure joy. To hear, see and smell the gulf was such a pleasure.
JOHN E.on 07/16/2016
Overall the amenities were fabulous. 0 complaints
Robin C.on 07/09/2016
Condo was very nice, excellent view. Only complaint is the bedroom next to the kitchen needs a curtain over the window to block out light and new pillows. The fire alarm went off three times in the building in one night. But overall, it was very nice.
Bob T.on 05/12/2016
Upon arrival, refrigerator was not working, and by the odor in it, it appeared to have been out of order for several days. A replacement was delivered the next day and placed in the middle of the kitchen floor in front of the other refrigerator--slight inconvenience but did the job for us. The unit was nicely furnished but the main living area upgrading as some furniture has become "worn". We also reported that the toilet in the middle bedroom ran continuously. When the replacement refrigerator service man came out he said he fixed it. However, after one flush, it started to run again and ran the whole week--completed waste of water. Suggest more than one dish water detergent tablet be furnished for future renters as well as a bottle of detergent sink soap.

Wonderful time. The condo (1002) was outstanding. Very clean and well stocked. Quiet location with great views of both gulf and the bay. I could even hear the surf from the front balcony. Plenty of room and baths for 6 adults and 5 children. We would stay here again. Must be the best bargain in Gulf Shores.ALBVR was great to work with.They offered to let us park on their property because only 2 cars can park at Mustique, the only downside of this rental.

The place was clean, everything worked. The decor is nice . The beds are comfortably my kids were happy to have their own room at all it was a relaxing vacation
Bill and carol W.on 07/04/2015
The condo was large and very nice and we enjoyed our family vacation there. We had 3 families and the only problem is the 2 car per unit parking.
Byron J.on 05/23/2015
Had a great experience at Mustique 1002... plenty of room for the entire family to spread out and relax... the beach experience was good; less crowded and laid back than previous condo experiences.

A great experience overall. Condo was clean and had upgraded furnishings. Wonderful views of the gulf and the bay. My family really enjoyed it.

We stayed in this condo a year ago and loved it. This year was a nightmare from 5 mins. after arrival until checkout. A few minutes after arrival the glass coffee table collapsed, nearly hitting our 3 yr old grand. We had put a child's puzzle on it and the leg gave way - it had been badly repaired and the screws were not long enough to hold it together. At 3 am the fire alarm ordered evacuation, so three children under 5, a 76-yr old in a boot after foot surgery, an 80-yr old with lung problems, two 60'ishes and 4 adults had to struggle down 10 floors of stairs along with other residents who were scared. The alarm to evacuate went off 3 times during this week: once at midday, but twice in the middle of the night, once in 27 degree weather. Firemen said "this happens all the time here". Should this not be corrected before a real fire turns into a disaster because everyone thinks it is a false alarm?? When we loaded the dishwasher, it fell forward out of the cabinet, again, scaring anyone near.
I reported both these problems on Saturday. Tuesday a man came and asked it they were fixed, looked at them and left. The same man came back Wed and fixed them, sort of, and insinuated that we had broken them. I called Thursday night to tell them that the master bathroom exhaust fan sounded like a B-52 taking off. They called back on my home phone - 300 miles away - on Friday to say they would be there "right away". As of 10:00 am Saturday they had not appeared. Meanwhile, the handle fell off the dishwasher. All in all, this was a disaster. The property has deteriorated in the past year and needs upkeep. When I expressed my thoughts to the management, they said they were very sorry, but could do nothing about it. We love this location and hate that this trip was so unpleasant that we couldn't wait to go home.

Great stay except parking became an issue. We had 2 permits for three cars and was told I could not get another. This was at shrimp fest and there was a guard on premise. I let our guests use the parking so for us the notice we received on the windshield caused us to worrythat our car might get towed. otherwise the overall would be five stars. I will not come back if we have three cars involved.

We had a great vacation, plain and simple.
This property was far beyond my expectations. Location is perfect if like me, you want to be down the road just a bit from the hustle. The condo has a great lay out and is very kid friendly. It was a little cool for us to take advantage of the outdoor pool, but it is very nice as well as the hot tub. We did take advantage of the heated indoor pool and exercise facility. Beach access is perfect and no issues with crossing the street to get there. The condo was very clean and well-maintained. The only thing I suggest changing is the mattress on the full size bed that is closest to the door in the bedroom with two double beds. It's definitely time for that mattress to go. I would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives. Thank you for helping to make my families Christmas vacation a great success!
The condo is beautiful with a breath-taking view of water all around. We did have a few problems - condo was not clean (especially bathrooms) and tile floor throughout was very dirty. ABVR did refund our cleaning fee and we cleaned the bathrooms and floors ourselves. Code to the inside pool and workout room was incorrect. Also be aware the pool is not heated and in October it was pretty much unusable because it was too cold. Also, the pool was not cleaned the entire week we were there and had stuff floating in it. There are not enough parking spots for the units - two parking passes for a 4 bedroom condo is insufficient. So you are on your own to find parking (they suggested Walmart) for the extra cars. All in all we had a good vacation with our kids and grandkids - the beach was fantastic and the kitchen was well stocked for fixing meals. This bldg. needs an on-site manager to answer questions about inside pool door codes, pool cleaning and maintenance issues. This is all sad because this is an absolutely beautiful condo but I would not recommend to a friend.
We have stayed at the Mustique for the last several years. We have never been disappointed. The condo is spacious,beautiful and in a great location. We will continue to stay at the Mustique!
excellent property and location. we will definitely return
I would kid highly recommend this unit. It has all the amenities for a great stay. We enjoyed the fantastic views and got in beach, pool, and pier time each day. This unit is great for larger families or groups. Plenty of privacy in each suite. The location is perfect with quick access to the beach and all of the attractions in Gulf Shores. Only issue was parking. I had inquired about additional parking passes prior to our stay and was told only two passes per unit. I completely understand as this is dictated by the HOA of the building; however, we had no passes upon arrival and only got one when we inquired. It turned out not to be a big issue, but could have been during a busier/peak rental time. Overall an excellent stay and will definitely book again.
Really great for a girl trip! Very clean and nice. Had to clean the dishes and put them away before we left which was a little odd because we wanted coffee and breakfast.
We had a great time over Labor Day weekend! We love how "out of town" this condo is so the beach is much less crowded than your typical condo.
The condo was absolutely perfect for us. The place was so pretty and the ocean view from the balcony is perfect.
we had a great time and plenty of space for all of us at the Mustique. It was a nice quiet location with a short walk to the beach that was not busy and easy to find spots to set up and play. Also had a nice pool in the back and a nice covered deck for fishing. The only 2 downsides that I can say about it is, there's only 2 elevators for the whole building but they were pretty fast and the checkout was at 10AM which had us RUSHING around that last minute to get out of there otherwise they charged us $25 every 15 minutes or something we went over. Just one more hour would made a world of difference.
Pro's are spacious condo, private, easy access to beach and lagoo, Con's are minor could use a few more kitchen supplies, missing tv remotes, more comfortable balcony furniture. We have stayed at the Mustique three times because the pro's outweigh the con's. See u next year.
Everything about our experience was very good. The condos were beautiful and clean and when I had a question or concern I received immediate responses that were very helpful.
The location, decor and size of the condo was wonderful for our family of 12. However, my son suffered an asthma attack on the first night because the left rear bedroom had been home to a cat. Luckily he had his medications with him or it would've been a trip to the emergency room. His wife found evidence of cat hair in the spread. There was an air purifier in the condo but it did not clean all the cat evidence from the condo. The next day we opened all the doors to cleanse the air. He slept on the sofa the remainder of the stay. I am stating this as a warning to others with allergies. I always book homes that are not pet friendly due to the allergies my have. This condo was listed as no pets. There is a sign on Mustique stating no pets allowed except the pets of condo owners. We will probably book Mustique again but not condo 1002
We were highly impressed with this condo for our family vacation. The four rooms were perfect for us and our three kids and their spouses. Our eight month old grandson even had a room of his own as the closet in his parent's room was huge. We enjoyed being close to the Gulf and Lagoon and also used the pool which had a level just the right size for the little one. The property was clean (although the ice maker, dehumidifier, and other electronics in vented closets might have run better if dust would be cleaned off of those doors) and we felt very safe in our surroundings. It was a simple walk to the beach and far enough down the beach to not have to fight crowds. A simple drive to the main area of Gulf Shores let us enjoy all the seafood that we were looking forward to. We particularly enjoyed the DeSoto Seafood Kitchen but also enjoyed the atmosphere of LuLu's. We are new at renting condos so it may be the norm, but it would have been helpful to know what we would need as far as dish soap, laundry detergent, shampoo, etc. Overall, we would highly recommend this condo to anyone and will be spreading the word to others in our area for a family get-away.
We arrived at our condo to find the pantry with crumbs in it, the refrigerator was filthy, and my husband found a piece of glass on the tile floor. He swept the floor while I started cleaning the refrigerator & pantry in order to put our food away. I was surprised to find absolutely no cleaning supplies in the unit. Another member of our party who had not arrived yet was bringing the kitchen cleaning supplies, but I did take some Clorox clean up and Windex which i had to use to clean the refrigerator. It smelled like clorox all week. I called the cleaning company to complain, and 2 ladies came back to clean (with absolutely no cleaning supplies) and to tell me someone must have come in afer they cleaned (didn't believe that). One pointed out that the middle bedroom with 2 double beds had no comforters because they had to take them to the cleaners due to having blood all over them. She promised she would get them back to us no later than Monday, but would try to get them back on Sunday. Never heard from her again, and had no comforters all week. The patio also had looked likd blood stains, and food particles all over it. The TV in the master bedroom did not work. The kitchen was not well stocked with cooking utensils & accessories. i had to buy measuring spoons and cups which i did leave for the next guest. The unit itself would have been okay if it had been properly cleaned prior to our arrival. We have stayed at The Mustique for the past 5 or 6 years and always had great experiences. We will stay again, but will be very careful who we rent from.
