We needed a place close (across the street) from our granddaughter's bachelorette beach house rental and chose the GSSRC. We had stayed here before in the 90's and just wanted basic accommodations since most of our time would be spent at the beach house. We chose a two bedroom unit for a bit more than $200 per for 3 nights as we had a friend travelling with us. We were allowed early check in and found, at the property, that an additional $20 was needed for a parking permit. Even through emails and text for check in, we still lacked our wifi password, property map and descriptions plus any other basics you normally get upon arrival. Our condo was a very basic box and smaller than I remembered. The age is starting to show with defects, damage, rust, molding separation, cracked tile, missing blind panels and generally aged condition (it has a VHS VCR) and dated appearance. The only reason I am giving it an "average" rating is that everything worked and we needed it only to sleep and shower. The only maintenance issue was with the toilet seat/lid that needed to be secured to the bowl - done promptly. As mentioned earlier, we stayed here to be close to the beach house.
Great pool & easy access to the beach. The pier off the lagoon was nice too! Our condo was a one bedroom with a pull out sofa couch. Mattresses need replacement & rather small for a family of 4, but other than that very clean. Great to have a washer & dryer in condo too! Away from all the tourist activity, but just a short drive.
This is a great family friendly place to stay. The pool is well maintained and the adjoining dock/pier is convenient for boat launching and fishing. The staff is very friendly. The beach is a short walk across the street, very convenient and not that crowded! Staying here you are away from the crowds and traffic but close enough to everything you need, grocery store, restaurants, entertainment for the kids. I did a 4 star because the unit we were in could have used some updating but still a good place to stay.
If you are looking for a 5 Star accommodations this is not the place, however the view and location is great. The tennis courts are also nice. We tried the paddle boards for a day and we had fantastic time.

Hi Jessica the only way to get beach chairs and umbrellas would be to rent a condo in orange beach that specifically has them for tenants of their building. Most condo rentals in gulf shores don't provide this. Go to... More
Hi Jessica the only way to get beach chairs and umbrellas would be to rent a condo in orange beach that specifically has them for tenants of their building. Most condo rentals in gulf shores don't provide this. Go to orangebeachcondorentals and look at each complex to see what is offered hope this helps!
