“Great early summer vacation”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

Early June of 2014 was our second visit to Surfside Shores II. We stayed in unit 2501 and were very pleased. Two masters, both with balconies that can overlook the Gulf, the street side balcony wraps to the side enabling views of the strip and Gulf. The bedrooms are well-appointed and the pools have ample seating. The only complaint would be tht the elevator was not reliable. It broke down twice in a week, but there was a security guard there 24 hours to call a repairman.

Stayed June 2014, traveled with family

Thank you for your review of one of our condominium units at Surf Side Shores. We are always glad to hear that guests of one of our owners have had a pleasant and enjoyable experience.

Surf Side Shores is a complex consisting of 96 individually-owned condominiums in two nine-story buildings. As such, decor, furnishings, amenities, etc. will differ from condo to condo.

Surf Side Shores is not a hotel or condotel type facility. As such there are no on-site rental desks or offices or walk-in rentals, and any rentals are handled either by the individual owner or a local rental agency. Some owners elect to rent, some maintain their private condominiums as second-homes.

As the homeowners association, we do all that we can to maintain the common areas and to keep all facilities maintained for the enjoyment or our owners and their guests. It is our recommendation to prospective guests that you pay careful attention to photos and descriptions on any rental site and that you carefully read reviews and rely on recommendations from others for any condo-type rentals.

We made a last second trip To Gulf Shores and booked blindly! We are not known for that....this place was exactly like the pictures.....great views from the private balconies...two nice pools lots of seating. They even have 24 hr security. We are already looking to book our next stay.

Room Tip: All beach front condos have great views, lower floors may be partially block by landscaping.
