When I first walked in I thought our room was adorable. I like how it's decorated. It is very beachy. The view from 407 is beautiful. After staying a night I started realizing how poorly maintained our room is. Vertical blinds have missing and uneven pieces. Light bulbs are out in several lamps and light fixtures. They have two storage...

We stayed there for the first time this year and it was great. Right on the lagoon so the kids enjoyed it. Nice pools and sites to see. Got to watch Osprey catching fish and eating right on the lagoon. Very rare to see one as close as we did. Had a great time and condo was wonderful. Will return...

We reserved unit 310 for three nights. Due to the sudden passing of a dear friend we were only able to stay one night. We were allowed to check in at noon instead of 3:30 pm. We had a wonderful night before we had to head home for the funeral. The unit is beautiful. Stocked kitchen and wrap around deck....

On the bay with ocean access just one block away. One thing I must have is a pool and Compass Point has a great one plus bay swimming. Apts rent by the week. Try to get one on the top floor for great views. Been here before and will be back. Good for either singles or families.

We stayed in "A Slice of Paradise" room 310. The place is perfect for a family or friends, up to 8 people! We truly loved the corner balcony! The beds were clean & comfy & the kitchen was nice as well. We loved having a washer & dryer in the condo- it came in very handy! Did not use the...

The property is very nice but if you stay in room 605 please plan to stay up all night from springs showing through the cheap old mattresses! We left early to go home to sleep. The room looks very nice with upgraded appliances and floors but what a disappointment where it really counts...the beds!

This unit was perfect for my group of 7 and our first trip to Gulf Shores. Being located on the lagoon but only 2 blocks to the beach was great. We could easily walk and take all our things for a day at the beach. Since it wasent the main public beach it wasent as crowded which was nice. The...

Rented a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo for 5 nights. The condo was well decorated and furnished with what you would need for a comfortable stay. It was very clean and well maintained. The complex pool was well maintained. Our condo faced the lagoon and had excellent views from balcony, which was good sized for standard size condo.

This is the first time my family and I vacationed in Gulf Shores. We were very pleased with the cleaniness of the condo. However, I am an early morning coffee drinker and the beach was not as clean. I will say this that before 8:00 the beach crew was busy picking up the left over debris that the guest left...
