About Spark Meister

Our family has vacationed in Gulf Shores for many years now. We live in central Illinois, and love to vacation on the beach! We've found the white sand beaches in Gulf Shores to be the most beautiful and family friendly of all! We also enjoy all of the fun things to do within walking distance! We have extended family members who also own in the area and we have enjoyed their vacation homes in the past. However, recently, we had the opportunity to purchase this townhome, partnering with our daughter and son-in-law. They have four children and are in the photo above. We enjoy watching our grandchildren play on the beach, swimming and fishing and look forward to many more years of vacationing in Gulf Shores, AL.

Spark Meister purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Spark Meister chose Gulf Shores

We really love the beach house feel of a townhome, with no foot traffic above or below. The small complex has a community feel, with the pool and courtyard in the center of a "U" shape. The location is absolutely perfect with the complex being beach side and within walking distance of the Shrimp Festival, The Hangout, and a variety of other restaurants, shops, and grocery stores. We have made many memories in Gulf Shores and are excited to make many more at our new home away from home.

What makes this townhome unique

It is so nice to be able to watch your kids swim in the pool right from your balcony. In the past, we've stayed in places where the pool was across the street, but our set-up couldn't be more convenient or family friendly, with the pool and courtyard located right in the center of the complex, and the beach only steps away!

Excellent beach location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Unit 28. It was even better than we expected! The decor was beachy and comfy. Everything we needed was provided from beach chairs to kitchen equipment. The location was excellent. We were able to walk to many of our destinations. We would recommend this place to others and would stay here again.

Perfect place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this condo. It is so close to the beach and overlooks the pool. The ocean was actually warmer than the pool!

Everything you need is provided at this condo on top of all the beach supplies you can think of - chairs, boogie boards, cooler, umbrella and sand toys.

The only thing you may want to bring/pick up are paper products (plates, Kleenex, paper towel, etc) and laundry detergent. Other than that, what else can you need with the beach literally 200ft away!

Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, wonderful view of the beach from the balcony. Clean and plenty of room for several people to relax. I would have loved to bring the comfortable bed home with me. Owners are wonderful to deal with. Could not have asked for better folks to deal with or a nicer place to spend our vacation.

Absolutely Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay - the townhouse had so many amenities. Beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, sand toys etc for the beach, we didn't have to bring one thing. Inside was exactly as described. We VERY much enjoyed our stay and the owners were very easy to work with. Loved every minute or our beach vacation, cant wait to go back and would stay here again!!!
