“Fun Family Vacation”
Reviewed August 30, 2011

Pool needed skimmed for bugs. Water pressure was horrible, the girls had to wash their hair with their swim suits with the hoses down by the pool that are used to wash sand off after being at the beach. However, the children had a blast playing in the pool with the fountains.The atmosphere was good except for the nudity we saw from our balcony to another. We did appreciate the performance by the security guards.

We loved staying at the lighthouse! It was really low key and we loved the pool area! We stayed in #809! The decor was so beachy and cute! It was great a one bedroom had two bathrooms and even a jacuzzi! It was right near the elevator which was very convienant. Highly recommend if you are wanting a nice relaxing vacation!

My family had a great time in Gulf Shores at Lighthouse 508 in April. Condo was nice, weather was great but there was one problem. I have had a lot of trouble getting my full deposit back from the owner. I have emailed them numerous times over the last several months and gotten no response. I want to make it clear that there were no problems at the condo and in fact we cleaned before we left. It boils down to the principal of the matter at this point.

We stayed at the Lighthouse condo 712 which we rented through Meyer Real Estate. The furniture was so dirty I could hardly sit on it. The complex itself was not clean either. The hallways where the elevators were located were always full of trash or dirty laundry that the cleaning people would leave out. The pool chairs were dirty too which was very disappointing. I will never stay at the Lighthouse again and I will never rent through Meyers again either. We were very disappointed.

Although they have security and I have witnessed tresspassers being asked to leave, there were young men, non-residents the last two nights, making lots of noise, using the hot-tub and basically keeping the residents from using the facilities. Today the hot-tub has been occupied for hours by young men (and women) drinking and smoking on the deck which is prohibited. I'm not positive they even are staying here and there is no way to reach anyone in security by phone to have them just check. Stay somewhere with better security if you in the over 50 crowd. In our unit the bed is well worn and not comfortable.

The good: all the condos in this building face the Gulf; our patio was roomy and furnished with comfortable furniture; the kitchen was fully outfitted with dishes, cookware, pans, small appliances (even a slow cooker) and we appreciated that; parking was free. The bad: The mattress on the king sized bed was terribly hard and uncomfortable - to the point that I woke up several times each night just because it was so uncomfortable. Our daughter slept on the pull-out couch in the living room and it was mechanically broken and the mattress was little more than a straw matt. The glasses in the cupboards were cracked and chipped along the rim. There was a nice whirlpool tub in the main bath but when I turned it on, the jets smelled musty. There were two [old] TVs and none of the remotes seemed to work with either of the TV's. One of the TVs had a high-pitched whine. There was supposedly free Internet access but no instructions on how to access the network and our laptop wouldn't connect. And be warned that there's no daily maid service. There is a washer/dryer in the unit and a Wal-mart close by, but you end up buying detergent/cleaning supplies and leaving behind what you don't use.

We rented through Brett-Robinson and to be fair, I left this feedback in two separate locations on their site and received no response at all -- that was a few weeks ago so I think it's fair game to post here and warn others. If I were in the area again, I would reserach feedback and only stay in a specific unit that had good feedback.

If you're not familar with the area, there's really not much to do in Gulf Shores. The beach is lined with high-rise condo units for miles and miles. Not much in the way of restaurants or night life -- except a few local bars. There are historical sites in Mobile, Pensacola and Dauphin Island but all are an hour away. There's an outlet mall 12 miles away in Foley and a zoo and mini-golf in Gulf Shores. Lots of places to get your nails done, fast-food chains and tee-shirt shops. Not a real happening place. We were there in December and it was cold so the beach wasn't as much of an attraction as it would have been in warmer weather.

My family has loved condo 508. It is very spacious, beautiful view, and so clean. We have 2 bedrooms with a small bunkroom. Thanks Tim and Myra. Shrimp fest has been a blast.
