The unit we had (115) was wonderful. The condo sits right on the beach and takes less than 2 minutes from the door to your perfect beach spot! The pool is centrally located and was lots of fun after a day at the beach.

Ocean Reef is a low rise, multi-building complex on the gulf. Parking spots are conveniently located under the buildings. Unit 110 is on the north side, with no view of the gulf. Except for the light blue main bathroom, the condo is painted white. The second floor bedroom and half bath are accessible via a spiral staircase. Very clean throughout.... More

Unit 112 is clean and has that beach feel. Decorated really cute. No carpet all tile floors. 1 bedroom with full bath with a loft/ 1/2 bath up stairs. Property is a few steps to the beach and in walking distance to restaurants

We rented 111 for my bachelorette weekend in Gulf Shores. It slept 8 and comfortably held the 6 of us. It is right on the beach, and while we didn't have an ocean view, it was the perfect location. I would stay here again in a heart beat! The only heads up is the fact that we only had 1... More

Great condo for couples or small families. One bedroom and a sleeper sofa. Flat screen TV's, DVD,VCR and PS2. No ocean view but it is on the beach. Walking distance to restaurants and The Hangout. Owners are super friendly and helpful. Best value in the Gulf area. We would stay again

We stayed in unit 701 which is a 3 story condo. While the location was great, the unit was in need of a lot of repairs and a good cleaning. The patio table was filthy and broken. There was a whole in the wall in the master bathroom. Several electrical outlets throughout the unit did not work. The sink and... More

The room (103) was exactly as described. Neat, clean. The only downside that is no reflection of the owner/manager was the garbage truck that arrived noisily in the early morning, and the noise of residents until late night/early morning hours. The main bed squeaky, but not uncomfortable. It was a few steps from the beach, right on the Main Street... More

We stayed in condo 801 which is a 3 story condo that faces the beach. You can walk right off of your deck onto the beach. That is absolutely the best part about the condo. Only one of the rooms has a good view of the beach, the others face the parking lot or have a small window. The pool... More
