Great Family Trip

We had two families with four kids between us and found almost everything we needed in the condo. It was very comfortable and there was ample seating and sleeping arrangements. The kitchen was well equipped also. The decor was bright and cheerful but modern and sturdy. The view from the balcony was awesome. It says partial view, but you can see the beach amazingly well. The beach was not crowded during our stay, the pools are conveniently located at the end of the boardwalk for easy sand removal. The area was quiet and scenic. We even saw the sunset on Bon Secour Bay on our way back to the condo one night. It was about a 20 minute drive into the heart of Gulf Shores where we found delcious food and lots of attractions. Eat at King Neptune's, it was the best dining we had while we were there.
This was our first family trip in a vacation rental, so we learned a few things. First of all, COFFEE filters. This coffee pot needs a #4 cone, don't forget! Second, trashbags, paper towels, toilet paper, dishwasher tabs/soap, laundry detergent, and cleaning supplies will be needed. We also found out after having asked the managment company multiple times that there is NOT a washer and dryer in the unit and only a few towels are provided in the condo. Booking through this site will not register you for the towel exchange service either so you are stuck at least washing towels. We were very well compensated for the inconvenience though and Resort Quest brought us more towels for the week. The washers and dryers in the building are communal and cost $1.25 a load. Also, come prepared for the first night and day because the nearest department store or large grocery stores are about 13 miles away.
The final thing we learned is that this property does have a beach chair rental service. We were told when we called that this property didn't offer that so we packed a bunch of additional stuff that we didn't really need after all. The info is just hard to get all in one place because there are different management companies for this site, the owner, the property, the building, etc. Overall we had an excellent time.
