traveler reviews for this gulf shores condo rental

Condo & Complex Did Not Meet Expectations

Review submitted: January 13, 2014   Date of arrival: June 24, 2013

We we very disappointed in our stay here. The condo and complex didn't meet expectations. Here are the reasons why we were dissatisfied.

A review of the Castaways complex:

1) The parking lot is cramped and crowded. It is difficult to get in and out. Barely have room to open car doors.

2) Lack of luggage carts. During the course of the week, we were ony able to locate 2 for the whole complex. This was an issue at check-in and check-out times.

3) The trash bin for complex is directly across from elevator. Anytime you arrive or leave, there is a strong smell of trash. The heat & humidity compound the smell as you ride the elevator. The strong smell also carries over into parking lot.

4) The complex is close to the main public beach. I wouldn't recommend this area for families unless you enjoy the party crowd.

A review of the condo itself:

1) While the condo did have plenty of room, the balcony is small and cramped. Do not plan on relaxing in chairs from this balcony.

2) The master comforter was dirty and had not been washed. We asked the condo owner about this, and she confirmed that the cleaning crew had not washed it because of a time constraint. This was completely unacceptable.

3) The shower curtains were mildewed. This unacceptable considering that they are $3 or $4 bucks for a new one. There was a constant dripping from bathroom/shower faucet in master bath. The master bath flooring is weak. It felt like we would fall through the tub every time we took a shower. The master bath toilet seat was loose. The hand towel rack in the master bath was loose & falling down. All of these are easliy repaired, but had been neglected.

4) The DVD player didn't work with any disc.

I wouldn't recommend this condo or complex to anyone until changes are made for the better. It's worth spending a few more dollars of hard earned money and find a more recently built, better designed complex and a condo that is kept clean and in good repair. We will not be staying here again nor would we recommend to family or friends.

Owners response: I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. Maintaining my condo so that guests have a pleasant experience is very important to me. All my emails and correspondence ask guests to please contact me if they have any problems so that they can be addressed immediately. Unfortunately, I was not able to do so with the items on your list that I had control over as I was not made aware of any problems until you emailed me requesting a refund days later.

Yes, I agree the parking spaces are tight for larger vehicles.

There are at least 4 luggage carts at the. I have no idea where they were when you were looking for them. Maybe guests did not return them to the area as requested. Locating a luggage cart is probably a common issue on the weekends when people are arriving and departing. That issue would be found anywhere you stayed as I have experienced it myself in other places, including hotels.

The trash chutes on each floor make it easy for everyone to dump their trash rather than hauling it downstairs on the elevator. The dumpster is enclosed in a room behind a door. The city does not offer a daily pick up service, which would reduce odor.

The balcony extends across the width of the living room as clearly pictured on the web site you booked from. It is large enough to hold a patio table with 4 chairs, plus allows extra room for standing to enjoy the view.

My cleaning crew said they had noticed the bedspread was dirty around the bottom edge, but there was no time to take it to a laundry to be dry cleaned. It could have been removed, cleaned, and then delivered the next day, but I was not even aware of the issue until I read your email.

They should have definitely changed the shower liner, but apparently missed this. They could have returned and changed it, had you called me. I always stock shower liners and light bulbs under the kitchen sink in case they are needed.

The annoying drip was taken care of after you emailed me about it, along with the loose toilet seat and towel rack.

I had no idea that the DVD player did not work. I would have had a new one brought to you within a few hours.

Between the initial discount and the refund I sent because you were disappointed, your 7 night stay during Peak Season totaled what a 5 night stay would have cost.

I know that after saving for a vacation no one wants to feel like they have been short changed. Again, I’m sorry and wish you had enjoyed a better experience.

My family and I had a wonderful stay. The condo was comfortable and the beach was lovely. Had little mix-up with the parking pass,but the owner took care of that right away.Condo could use some updating, but its still a great value for the money. We walked to restaurants nearby and made good use of the fully stocked kitchen. Would recommend to friend and definitely stay here again

The Browns - Tuscumbia, AL

Review submitted: February 21, 2013   Date of arrival: February 15, 2013

We absolutely had a ball! We had never been to the beach in February before but it was very nice. We found tons of shells, every size, shape and color. The weather was cool, but we walked thru the water to a sand bar and it was great! We enjoyed the condo it was very clean and convenient to everything. You were very nice and easy to deal with. Your kitchen was extremely well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses and anything else you could need. The master bed was AWESOME, slept so good! We would definitely stay there again and recommend to any of our friends!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, romantic getaway
