About the property

3 Bedrooms,3 full bath,4 Queen size Beds, sleeps 8, 4 TVs, wireless internet

The Penthouse is the largest unit in the complex and located on the 7th floor. The Whaler is a low density condo with only 27 units so there is no long wait for the elevator. We have a deep large beach area so you do not feel crowed while on the beach. Our pool is outside with a depth of 3ft. to 8 ft.

We have a great location, only three red lights from the intersection of Highway 59 and Beach Blvd. the center of Gulf Shores. The Whaler is within walking distance to the Gulf State Park Beach and fishing pier which is located to the east along the beach. If you walk west along the beach you can reach the entertainment, restaurants and shopping area.

Vacation stay at the Whaler

  • 4 of 5

Girls week at the Whaler in August. The place was spacious enough for 5 women to be very comfortable. We stayed in one of the Penthouse. The view was great. The pool was very refreshing to cool off from very hot days. Mr. White was making sure our stay was what we had expected. I will go back.

Great apartment, terrible building

  • 5 of 5

The unit was great, owner was wonderful to work with. The elevator was not working while we were there and the association I called to repair couldn't give me any help. The day I checked out it was not working at all so I had to carry my things down 8 flights and then back up four times. I am 69 years old and not in the best of health. I finally threw away all the food and other miscellaneous things because I could not carry them down.

The condo was very adequate for our family beach vacation.

  • 4 of 5

The elevator stopped working two times, so the seven flight of stairs was a challenge with kids, etc. But other than that, we had a very enjoyable vacation!

Excellent Summer Fun

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay ...... ocean front, close to restaurants, and not too many people!!! I love the fact that it only has 27 units. Elevator was fast! Also, Mr. White was very quick to respond and helpful.

very nice great location

  • 5 of 5

Only down side was no internet service which I thought by looking at the ad that WI-FI was included. If I would have had work to do I would not have been a happy camper. Everything else was wonderful. Great Condo; stocked with all anyone needs and wonderful location. Gave it 5 stars instead of 4 for no WI-FI because everything else was perfect.
