There is also salt and pepper, dish towels, and dish soap.

There is a queen-sized bed and a queen-sized futon couch. Bathroom with washcloths and towels. There are two beach towels and two beach chairs available for your use. Cable TV, and there is no free wifi.

There is an adjoining unit that could also be rented for additional space. It is Listing #684644. Coin operated laundry machines on the second floor. They cost $1.75 each for washing and drying. Covered parking. No smoking, and no pets.

About Francie Dunlap

I'm the 'Peachy Beach Girl,' and my husband and I keep two of these little condo units so we can have some fun family vacations with our three daughters and friends. We are a homeschooling family that lives on a farm near Charlotte, NC. We have friends in the building who will be available to help you out if you need it.

Francie Dunlap purchased this studio in 1996

Why Francie Dunlap chose Gulf Shores

I love Gulf Shores!!! I grew up near Chicago, and my family traveled here with our extended family every year for spring break. I can't believe how much it has changed (and for a kid, there is certainly more to do now, haha) The Pink Pony is still standing, and so is Sea N Suds. It's so great to be able to walk across the street to the beach every day, without paying a big price! Great times!

What makes this studio unique

Gulf Shores is so amazing, it makes you feel like all of your troubles have evaporated. It's so laid back, but it can be as exciting as you want, with all of the options for nightlife and activities. I love the location of this condo, because there is so much to do close by. It is nice to have a car with you if you like to explore everything in the area, but you can certainly be happy without one, because the bars, restaurants, and shopping are all nearby. The condo is clean and well-lit, and the exterior of the building has been remodeled (2016).

The Hangout Beach Bar across the street frequently has live bands that can be heard from your room, especially if you open the window. If you need it to be quiet in order to go to sleep early, I recommend that you bring earplugs. The music quiets down between 10:00 PM and 12:00 AM, depending on the night.

The property was clean and adequate for what we needed. We would stay here again.

The only suggestion I have is to provide better pillows.

Had all the necessities!

  • 5 of 5

Although it wasn't elaborate, or fancy, it had everything we needed for the weekend. The futon was comfortable when it was let out to a bed. There was even a couple of beach chairs and a hair dryer. The manager was quick to answer any questions. Would definitely stay there again.

Convenient location and great price

  • 4 of 5

This condo is perfect if you want to walk most places and stay within a budget. The music is not noticeable once you are inside the condo, only in the hallways. Parking is adequate and there is an additional lot behind the building near Mikee's. The unit was clean and the AC was super cold! Our bananas wouldn't even ripen. Coming in from the beach felt wonderful. My only "complaints" with the condo are that there is no Wi-Fi (you can pick up a free network from the Hangout but it doesn't work well) and I felt there should have been more storage options around the bathroom sink and in the shower. Getting ready was a bit of a hassle but manageable. I also think a welcome letter just reiterating what is expected at check out, instructions for the door lock (it took us a minute to figure it out) and things to do and see in the area would be helpful.

Perfect little condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was extremely affordable considering the convenience and the cleanliness. It's small but that was perfectly fine for what my sister and I were looking for to enjoy our weekend away. I would definitely stay again! Thank you!

Great room, clean, nice shower

  • 4 of 5

The bed is pretty creaky but once you get settled in, it's pretty comfy. The room seems pretty well insulated so outside noises aren't very loud.

The bathroom is so small that the sink is placed outside the actual bathroom, and larger people could have some trouble in there as well. All the appliances worked as should, and the room is well decorated.

It's definitely worth the money, and if you're looking for somewhere to stay that's not hard on the wallet, I would definitely recommend this place.
