“Family in the SUN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Our family of four in the last years has turned into a family of 6 (two in-laws and two precious grandchildren)...so we had to find a condo with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths plus somewhere that would rent from Thursday to Thursday. Surfside Shores was the perfect spot. The room we rented had two master bedrooms with views of the ocean and a kitchen that was fully equipped. Floors in the kitchen/living area were tile, we mopped over them with bleach wipes so the kids were able to crawl around. The building was very well kept. There were two large pools and two kiddy pools. The beach was busy but did not feel like we were on top of everybody else enjoying the sun. We were able to leave our umbrella and chairs on the beach at night so we did not have to make two trips every day to the beach to take everything. Our stay was over the 4th of July and the fireworks were super! Condo is near lots of good restaurants and grocery stores. Only a few negatives...the sliding doors going onto the balcony were broken and the rail on the balcony did not seem to be strong enough to handle very much weight, bathrooms could have been a little cleaner. We had a great time and plan on returning in the next few years.

We have been in Gulf Shore many times and love it every time, we had a great time this time as well but not because of the place we stayed at. First time we stayed here. and last time. The first thing we did was walk out to the balcony. Well be careful, Room 1505, the railing was so loose I was afraid one of the kids was going to fall off !!! We then looked down at the pool below us, to notice a big stain in the center of the pool. But that's not all, the balcony itself, has a door that's all rusted and a beach chair that's all rusted ! SOOO GROSS ! we then looked around the condo, some was ok, but the masterbath, needed major caucking around bathtub. It didn't even a door to close when you used the bathroom , never seen that before. In the kitchen, the light over the stove didn't work, the biggest pan they had was a one person 6 inch frying pan, the microwave had different handle colors on it, appearanlty they had broken so in order not to replace it they stuck some cheap handles on it . Mismatched plates and forks. Another small pan with the enamel complete scratched off, not usable at all. We made the best of it . The said thing is when I called to make this reservation with YOUNGS SUNCOAST , I told them that I had stayed at Lighthouse condos before and wanted something similar to those cuz they were sold out....they said this was like that a little older ......SO UNTRUE......SO DONT EVER USE THEM EITHER, I called them and they had KELLIE, their manager talk to me , she said she would go over there and check on it and call me back , here we are 24 hrs later , haven't heard a thing ! TERRIBLE PLACE AND TERRIBLE MANAGEMENT COMPANY ........DONT USE EITHER ONE !!!!I I HAVE PICTURES IF ANYONE WANTS TO SEE THEM ......

We have stayed at Surf Side Shores every year since October 2006 to attend the Gulf Shores Shrimp Festival.
Surf Side Shores is only 6 stories high and very family oriented. Onsite grills are available for outside cooking.
The view from the porch is excellent. Landscaping and pools are always maintained and the gulf view is spectacular.
