We rented unit 404 through VBRO. Correspondence with the owner and payment was easy. We were met by a lady from the security office and quickly issued our parking pases that cost $5 per car and she was extremely helpful in pointing us to the beach and onsite amenities. The unit was a 3rd floor condo with a loft that...

We stayed at Ocean Reef 601, booking through Gulf-Sands realty. Despite a previous bad review, we found this condo to be wonderful for our family of 6. Booking and Check in with this realtor was easy and the room as a code lock, so check out is easy too (no keys!!). Upon arrival, we found this unit closer to town,...

We love the condo we rent at Ocean Reef!We found it on VRBO! It's beach side and small not a high rise. The pool is perfect for us! It's a great location and family friendly! We look forward to our visit every September.

I was in unit 115 for work. It's a nice unit that looks like it has been updated fairly recently. It's a spacious unit overlooking the pool/courtyard. The living room has a nice leather sofa. There's a bedroom on the main level along with the living room, kitchen, dining area, and a bathroom. Then there's a second level with another...

Our condo was great! Recently remodeled and furnished appropriately. Everything was nice and clean. The condo is beach side so you just walk out the back and there it is! The pool was clean and the rest of the premises looked nice. We stayed in 216 and the owners were excellent people to deal with and exceedingly nice! We will...

We've had this 1bed, 1 bath condo reserved since Sept 2015 for a 4 night stay. Owner was honest & spot-on. Great location. Parking was included & convenient. We liked the option of the pool or ocean right out back. Complex was well painted, clean, & safe. Just what our family needed to help us relax.

It was a great place to stay. The environment around the condominiums was amazing. I definitely endorse any family to stay here due to its great location on the beach, great rooms, and because it's very roomy throughout the entire condo! We all had a great time!

This place is cozy. Two bedroom great for a family Vaca with a reasonable rate. Has two balconies, one which overlooks the community pool and another which over looks the beach in Gulf Shores. Has two grills which they try to accommodate you with coals. The vibe down hear is very family like and you'll get the same attitude through...

We stayed at Ocean Reef Condos 601, Sept 2 - 7, 2015. The pictures on Meyer Realty made it look really clean. The furniture was very outdated, almost like it was pieces not needed anymore from home, very worn, felt almost damp. The kitchen needed a good cleaning inside the cabinets. The bathroom just needs a good cleaning, toothpaste splatter...

“No beach or gulf view from Unit 110. The parking spaces are at ground level. The first floor of condos is on the second level. 110 is on the third level. The spiral staircase would not be easy to climb for a person with limited mobility.”
