We stayed in 603 and as soon as we walked in the door cigarette smell hit us in the face. Had to air out the condo and that didn't help much. Arrived on Saturday, called relax on the beach they said someone would call in the morning, in the meantime found a blood spot on the comforter, pulled the sheets... More

My family and I stayed in 1206, which we rented through VRBO. The building itself was very nice and it does provide some amenities (pool, workout room) but we never used them so I can't comment on the condition. They do have some covered parking, but on the weekends those spaces seemed to fill up quickly. However, during the week... More

This review is for the complex only. We rented through VRBO, and our unit was very nice. I would suggest booking through VRBO and searching for reviews of whatever unit you will stay in. The complex is across from the beach. You have to cross a two lane street to access the "public access" area, because the complex does not... More

We took our grandson and his friend for four nights stay. The unit is very spacious. But the master bedroom has a double bed?? The mattress badly needs to be replaced!! Very uncomfortable!! Also. The sheets on that bed are very worn and thin. The outside hall floods the room with light. It needs drapes over the window. The sofa... More

We went to Gulf Shores for a family vacation and could not have picked a better place to stay. The beach was right across the street and the view was fabulous. The patio was large with plenty of seating. The room was very modern and had a pull out couch for extra bedding. The room included a washer and dryer... More

The Sanibel has a great view of the Ocean from any room that you're in. I stayed on the 9th floor, although I'm not big on heights I made it through the week-end. The living space was beautiful. The food at the Red Ribs and Complete Angler was fantastic, like it was fresh from the Sea. Better yet the Beach... More

I loved the place. Couldn't ask for a better place. Very clean and comfortable. It was right where the beach was. We had an awesome view of it as well, but don't loose your parking pass. They will charge you for that.

We were in 1705 and we booked it through the owner. The unit has a great view and is well equipped and comfortable. The only thing we found wrong is that the hot tub is actually a kiddie pool. We had to do laundry daily due to 5 of us there with 7 towels and 6 wash cloths. The owner... More

We stayed here 3 days after hurricane Isaac came ashore in early September 2012. This unit was AMAZING, I spent hours and hours researching all the units and this 3Bed/3Bath was perfect! We had 3 couples and 3 children and it was tight, but still comfortable! The beds were perfect-the view from the moment you walked in was breathtaking-the furnishings/decor... More
