If you are looking for a gorgeous, clean, place to stay in a complex that equals the owners attempts to offer a quality stay, then this is the one. The owners were easy to work with and then...gave extra. A friendly text on the day of arrival making sure everything was in order was such a nice touch. A small glitch with the icemaker was handled promptly even offering to get me ice late that night. Repairman scheduled to be there the next day AND made sure the complex's conference room freezer was available for us early so we could have ice to take to the beach that very morning. The Beach, not a speck of trash, white sand and we were pampered by the beach attendant from the complex. (Beach attendant, chairs, umbrella does come with a reasonable fee). After setting you up, he comes back repeatedly to offer to move your umbrella for you so you always have the sun/shade you prefer. He was friendly, helpful (Husband got stung by a jelly fish and he had some spray for him) and a delight to talk to. The complex always had visible employees cleaning doors, security watching the parking lot etc. The condo- floor to ceiling glass across the whole condo facing the ocean from bedroom (with door to patio/balcony & chase) to living room. the outdoor balcony was very spacious and comfortable. 17th floor gave the ability to see so much ocean you could almost always spot dolphins swimming! The master bed was no kidding the most comfortable bed I ever slept on! One small nick- If you are a big cook like me and read in other reviews about the large spice rack it is there but it does not contain most used spices. Bring cinnamon, garlic, onion powder whatever you need. The kitchen was well stocked and a delight to cook in. Look no further, you found the best condo! ENJOY!
We enjoyed every minute of our stay in Gulf Shores. Our condo was warm, beautiful and had a spectacular view of the water and beach. We enjoyed the delicious food from many different restaurants in the area. Lu Lu's, Cosmos and the Hangout were just a few that we experienced. Best part of our vacation was walking in the water with my wife along the beach shore in the evening. This area is so beautiful and we will come back soon again.
I am pleased to share our Amazing experience at San Carlos 1708. Our host; Rhonda and Ken, provided a very detailed welcome package highlighting the many restaurants and attractions in the Gulf Shores community. Many of these are just a pleasant stroll down the beach to enjoy. The "self check-in" feature enabled us to immediately begin enjoying this beautiful condominium. Cozy, Comfy and Relaxing are just some of the ways to describe the way you feel staying here. AND...The View !,,starting with the floor to ceiling windows to the breathtaking balcony looking out across the Gulf is the best anyone could expect. Morning coffee and sunrise on the balcony is the true definition of "Peaceful" . We were able to see Natures lightning show as a large storm passed by offshore and witnessed our first waterspout! The condo provides all the amenities you could want, from the soft fluffy beds, to the jetted hot-tub ( a blessing after driving 8 hours!!). Also, try grilling out on the wicked charcoal grills located on the first floor. We appreciate the hospitality extended to us by the owners and their dedication to providing a premier location for our dream vacation! Thank You...
We've rented condos for various vacations all over Florida and Alabama for several years. This condo is beautifully and thoughtfully appointed and stocked with anything you could possibly need. It was very clean, comfortable, and modernly furnished. The kitchen was stocked with anything you could want, including a blender, a full spice rack, and all the dishes, cookware, and utensils you could need. The views from this 17th floor condo were incredible, the grounds clean, the elevators always in working order and quick to arrive. (We've stayed in condos (and never returned) where elevators were a huge issue.) The bathrooms were clean and roomy, and the master bathroom had a Jacuzzi tub that I wished I had at home.
The condo is close to everything in Gulf Shores and parking was plentiful and easy. Check in was a breeze (because there is no check in!) and check out was also as easy. Just close the door and leave.
The owner (Rhonda) was so kind and replied immediately to any question we had. We had a great week and would definitely rent this condo again.
Beautiful condo, wonderful view, and perfect location!
Very easy check in and out process. Will definitely come back!
It was wonderful! The condo was perfectly clean and we had no issues! The owners were easy to get in touch with and I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone.
This beautiful condo exceeded our expectations - everything was exactly as described, but it was the large balcony that set this property apart from the others we considered.
The moment we walked in and saw those floor-to-ceiling views of the water, we knew that we'd made the right choice. The condo was spacious, nicely decorated, immaculate, and had just about everything we needed. Nice amenities as well. The fitness center, pool, and sauna were nice touches.
Location-wise, we were very pleased - restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping were all conveniently located. We appreciated the restaurant recommendations, and we particularly enjoyed Cobalt in Orange Beach..
A five-star experience – would definitely return :)
