The property was well beyond our expectations. It was super clean, very tidy, had everything we needed, and was close to a lot of restaurants and stores. We could walk across the road and be at the beach in a few minutes. We walked downtown our first day here and it was great! We went to the Pier, drove to Orange Beach one day, visited the zoo a day, went to Foley a day, and so many other outdoor activities. Just being able to walk the boardwalks and see all the nature and enjoy the weather was a treat! The condo was definitely everything as described. I would highly recommend staying here. We hope to be able to stay here again in the future. Thank you to Randy for keeping and having such a nice property available for families looking to get away! Please keep up the excellent work!

Loved it. I had the comfort of "home", while on vacation
We loved having Nina come this week. Such a nice person and great guest. Our condo at Village By The Gulf is directly across the street from the beach. We are in the front building and have a small view of water between the condo complexes on the beach side. Nina's review mentioned "Beach Front View" and I didn't want future inquirers or guests to feel mislead about the exact location of the condo. Typically beach front views will be for those condos directly on the beach and directly facing the ocean with nothing blocking the view. However, if you are looking for a great place to bring your family and not pay the high prices of being directly on the beaches we may be perfect for your next vacation.
My family really enjoyed this condo in Gulf Shores. It was really easy to get to the beach and close to all the local attractions. It was very clean and we were surprised by the brand new flooring through out the entire unit. (No carpet) There was also a very comfortable leather chair in the living room. I appreciated the blender, and crockpot. Our neighbors needed a screwdriver to fix their headlight on their car and we even found one of those in our condo. They really have thought of everything! This is our second time in Gulf Shores and our second time renting from Randy. He is great to work with and we will absolutely rent from him again. Great condo at a great price!!
From the moment that we started the process of setting up our reservations for Village by the Gulf, everything went perfect. Host Randy was just the best ever to deal with. Promptness is a big thing with me and he was so quick to answer my e-mails and return phone calls. The condo was also perfect. It was soooo clean, everything you would need in it and the best location for sure. I am a walker so was able to go safely walking on the street every morning and then we walked on the beach in the evening. There is good restaurants and shopping near by. The condo was 2 bedroom and 2 bathrooms which were nice and the beds were comfortable and the rooms had big closets. There was even a washer and dryer in the condo if we needed it. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking items. Even had some spices to use. All appliances worked well. The living room/dining area was very nice with comfortable furniture. As another reviewer mentioned, it was well appointed with some lovely pictures to make it so cheerful. There was magazines and notebooks with all the information you would ever want to know about things to do and places to eat in Gulf Shores and surrounding areas. Very helpful. Also Randy gave us some recommendations for some restaurants that I had asked about, that was appreciated and we did eat at the Italian one and had great food and lots of it. I have already recommended this place to several of my friends that travel to beach areas. I want to go back again as there is still more that I want to see and do. You can't go wrong staying here and Randy and Lisa will take good care of all your needs. Thank you to them for having such a nice place to share with us.
Host Randy did an awesome job accommodating my family - we drove through the night and arrived a few hours early - Randy indicated that he would do his best do accommodate our arrival without any promise - he delivered!! He really made our vacation a priority and we really appreciated his hospitality! The condo was clean, was well appointed, the beds were comfortable and the location was awesome - very convenient too!!! The beach was easily accessible - short walk across the street. The pool was great!! The place was quiet even on a very busy Spring Break Week. We really enjoyed our stay and made a lasting memory. Thanks for your hospitality Randy and we hope to stay with you again in the Spring of 2018!!!!
Had a wonderful stay in this unit. It had all the comforts of home and very clean. Would definitely recommend this condo to small family or couple. It is one of the few complexes that has special amenities, such as a playground, shuffleboard, bicycles and basketball court. Had grandkids on this trip, ages 5-18, and they all had a blast. Very close to area attractions and you couldn't ask for nicer owners to work with. Will be back for sure!
We rented from Randy and Lisa last year at Gentle Winds East and this year at Village by the Gulf. They are so sweet and awesome to rent from. Our experience both times have been absolutely great. This year the only issue was upon arriving and someone from another unit had guests over that were in our space. Other than that the whole week just relaxing and fun. The pool, playground, grills, and basketball courts out back were a nice break when we were done at the beach. The beach is just across the street and east to get to. Everything was clean and there was even a washer and dryer in the unit that we were not expecting. Randy also is very nice to send out info prior to our arrival with fun things to do in the area. LULU'S is amazing!!
Everything was clean. The A/C worked well enough to actually keep us cooled of, which has been hard for us to find in an affordable room. The king size bed was the best I have slept on.The pool was perfect for my 3 year old. Everything was perfect. The only thing I would change about the whole condo is 1. more seating in the living room and 2. getting a topper for the queen bed to make it more comfortable. But other then that it was FANTASTIC and I hope to visit again.
This property was wonderful. The proximity to the beach was great. The condo was clean and quiet. We received detailed information about so many things to do and see. Tried a restaurant (Lulu's) at the owners suggestion and it was delicious! You can tell they really know/enjoy this area themselves. Every time I thought of something I might need/wish I had brought, they already had it! The best thing I can say about any place I stay is whether I feel at home or not. We certainly did here. I unpacked my suitcase which I never do! We did not want to leave and know where we're staying our next trip to the gulf. I quickly found out why this property has so many five star reviews and I'm happy to add mine!
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo. It is our home away from home. We constantly think of ways to make it better for people who stay. We love the ocean also, it's our vacation spot to relax and unwind. Please do come back!!
My wife and I stayed at this condo recently and it met and for the most part exceed our needs and expatations. It was very neat, very clean and very well equipped. We didn't experience any problems during our stay. The location was very close to the beach, shops and resturants. Even though we were there during a large Spring break week the property was very quite and peaceful. It was also neat that a high school classmate of mine from 50+ years ago was staying in the building next to ours and has been coming to this property for over 30 years. This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and Randy Morris as our landlord made the renting in the area for the first time an easy and enjoyable experience. We will I'm sure be back in the future and hopefully be able to stay either here again or in one of the other properties owned by Randy and Lisa Moris.
My wife and I stayed at this condo for four months, we had guests for 3 weeks of that time. The condo met all of our needs, was very clean and well equipped. Any problems we had were dealt with swiftly and politely by either Randy or the on site employees. The location is ideal, close to everything, it was quiet and safe. We will stay there again and we recommend it to others without hesitation. Randy Moris is the very best kind of landlord, if only we could get him to cheer for the Tide!
Thanks Lloyd for the great review and glad you had a good stay. But, for my friends and family that sees this I Roll with the Tide! Roll Tide!! Thanks again for being such great guests and fun people.
My family and I enjoyed our experience staying at the Moris's condo. It was a clean and comfortable condo with a great location! We had a short and easy walk to the beach each day, and we're able to visit other spots in Gulf Shores easily. The condo is conveniently located close to stores and restaurants so you do not have to spend your vacation in a car traveling to your destinations. The complex is a family oriented place with plenty of fun activities for the kiddos. We felt safe at all times there. Randy was excellent about communicating with me and responding to all of my questions in a timely manner. We will definitely go back to Gulf Shores and stay in this condo again. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
My family of 5 really enjoyed our time. Though not on the beach it is very close to the beach, on average we could make it to the sand in 3 minutes. While there was lots of people around it never seemed crowded like the public beach. The place was clean and very well stocked. All we needed was food and beach towels. The kitchen is a little tight but for the price you could eat out. I was truly blown away by service we recieved from Randy, he truly made us feel welcomed. We are already looking to book for next year. Thank you Randy, we hope nothing but the best for you and your family. We will see you again next year!!! P.S. The property also loans out bikes, has a pool, basketball goal, and 9 hole putt-putt. Which was great when you needed something fun and quick to do.
Randy was absolutely fantastic to work with. All of the stresses and concerns that come with planning a trip were immediately eliminated. He responded quickly to any questions that my party and I had and was very organized in helping us plan our stay. I would recommend this rental to anyone.
I found the condo very, very clean. The best part was all the reviews that I read and that helped me choose this condo for a family vacation were absolutely true such as distance to beach, restaurants, parking, and family activities. The condo was also well stocked with towels. appliances, blankets, and dishes. Look forward to next year!
This is such a great condo! Our immediate impression was a tidy & well maintained condo. The condo was exactly as described & represented in the pictures. The fully stocked kitchen completely exceeded our expectations (not food). A pot & utensil for every need, plenty of glasses & dishes. A very pleasant surprise since we planned to cook most meals at home. It's a tight squeeze to have two in the kitchen, but it can be done, as long as you like each other. The living room furniture is comfy. Plenty of seating & surfaces to set your glasses. The bedrooms are nice. Very comfortable beds & quality linens. The closet in the master bedroom is huge! Plenty of room for your luggage. TVs in both bedrooms, although we never turned them on. We spent quite a bit of time on the back deck. We herded the kids out there immediately upon returning from the beach. Great place to shake of the sand & put all the wet gear. It was also nice to relax & enjoy a beverage or meal. While not listed, it was a nice surprise to find beach gear on the back porch. I'm going to assume previous renters contribute to the stash. We'll also be leaving some for the next kids. Overall I'd say the condo was very well maintained, well appointed & very comfortable. I'd recommend to anyone. It's not the fanciest place, but it doesn't have a fancy price tag either. The location of the condo is very convenient. The beach is a short walk across the road. Public access to right across the street. Our 5 year old & 2.5 year old twins easily made the walk. And what a nice beach! Very clean & beautiful. If you'd prefer to avoid the sand, the pool & playground provides a great alternative. The kids had a blast on the playground, basketball court & putt putt course. The pool is pretty shallow, which is nice with young kids. Waves convenience store is conveniently located next door. Pricey, so I wouldn't plan a full shopping trip there, but nice for the small forgotten items. We have a great time in this condo. It exceeded our expectations. Can't wait to bring the family back.
The owners of this condo should be commended for having Randy Moris manage their property. Randy is very easy to reach and he responds immediately to texts or emails. He is very friendly and easy to deal with. The condo was very clean and very well stocked. The beach is right across the street and there's a convenience store and ice cream shop right next door. Walmart is also right down the road so you can stock up on groceries. There's a nice playground and pool on site and both were very clean. Overall our experience with Randy and our stay were wonderful. We will definitely rent from Randy again.
Our whole experience was great from the beginning search and the actual stay. Cleanest facility I have stayed in of this kind, every detail was covered. The beach was such a short walk away and anything you would want to eat is right down the street. We enjoyed the fresh seafood market next door so we didn't have to get in the car and leave. So much to do but we came to enjoy the beach and our time together so we did not need those places. Randy is the best ever to work with, you won't be sorry you put your trust in his word. Great experience and hope to return.
This unit was perfect for our needs! Easy to find, great location, restaurants and shopping nearby, right across from the beach...awesome! The beach....exactly what we wanted for our boys first beach trip, not too crowded and minimal traffic compared to other areas. The unit was spotless and was accurately represented in the pics. Bahamas Bobs was our favorite place to eat, but we had great seafood everywhere we went! Be sure to zip over to Pensacola and visit the Naval Aviation Museum and watch the Blue Angels practice!!
We were looking for a reasonably priced two bedroom smaller condo close to the beach but not one of those high rise buildings for our first vacation to Gulf Shores. This one was perfect for our needs. Right across the street from the beach. The bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable. The dining area was nice and went along well with the little kitchen. The small kitchen was manageable and well stocked with all necessary items by Randy. We cooked all of our meals here for four people. Checking in was a breeze with the combination lock box on the door which held the door key. The Walmart grocery store is close by as are other stores and the prices are the same as they are back home in the larger Walmart stores. Do yourself a favor and buy your groceries and cooking supplies here instead of hauling it from wherever you are coming from. We even barbequed one evening back on the grill in the pool area. The pool and patio area are very nice and clean. They were very well taken care of. If you have little ones there is a playground back by the pool along with a six hole miniature golf course and horseshoe pits. They have coaster bikes there also that you can check out and we put a few miles on them. Our vehicle was safe and sound in the parking area underneath the condo. Much better sheltered than many of the other places along the beach. We felt very safe and secure in this area. It was quiet at night and had a family atmosphere. What really surprised us was the fact that people would leave their beach umbrellas, pop ups, chairs, etc. out on the beach at night so they wouldn't have to drag it out everyday. It appeared there was no thievery going on. We saw many families on the beach daily and they would come in the evening after dark and catch little crabs on the beach. Everyone was very friendly. We recommend this condo for all ages and we had a very relaxing, comfortable stay. We'll be back again with our grand children.
This condo was much more than we expected! It was in great location. Beaches weren't too crowded & a store located next door or easy convience to the small things you may have forgotten. The condo was very clean, comfortable and relaxing. Randy was a pleasure to deal with & very helpful. We will definitely return to this condo in the future.
I returned to Gulf Shores this May 2014 for a workshop and conference. I stayed at this condo because of the great service I received last year from Randy and Lisa. Also because of the wonderful atmosphere at the condo, it is quiet, comfortable and relaxing. All of the condo's I have had the pleasure to stayed in that this couple manages are always clean, up to date, and totally described accurately. Randy is precise and timely with information regarding ones stay. I am already planning for next years conference and am most delighted to share I hope to get the pleasure to stay here again for the third year.
My husband and I stayed at the condo from Apr. 13th until Apr 27th. Randy, the owner, was very informative and helpful with all questions. This condo was very clean, well-furnished, comfortable and had everything we needed. The beds were comfy and there is a nice view of the ocean from the front, with the condo located only a short walk across the road. I would recommend this place to friends and family. There are many nice restaurants and shops nearby. We enjoyed driving to Fairhope, a little town about 45 mins. away. The beach was never too crowded, and we had a terrific time. Hope to return again soon. Thanks, Randy, for all your help and information!
Talk about feeling at home away from home! This condo was everything the owners promised it would be! It was exceptionally clean and neat with everything you could ever need while on vacation. We enjoyed the pool in the mornings and the beach (just a walk across the street) in the afternoons. i took my 2 teenagers and one of their friends and there was never a dull moment! They enjoyed the bikes that are available for use, all the trinket stores and loved evenings spent at the Hangout! We enjoyed dinners at LuLu's and Jelapena's - soooooo yummy and highly recommended! The owner, Randy, has got to be one of the nicest and most honest people I have ever rented from! I honestly felt that he truly wanted us to have the best vacation and its obvious from the care he puts into his property and the promptness in getting back with you on any issue you might have! We would be rent in a heartbeat again from Randy and at this exact location (such a great price on something so well cared for!) We had a fantastic time! Thanks Randy for everything!
My wife and I stayed at The Village By the Gulf and could not have been more pleased. Very clean , very convenient to everything..shops..beach right across the street...convenience store right next door restaurant in walking distance with the best breakfast on the beach. The recreation area is ideal for young children. We had a wonderful dinner at the Oyster House. We will will definitely stay there again .
We had a great time and had a great place to stay. Everything was as the site describe. Clean, comfortable and has everything you would ever need. Great access to the beach and tons of extras all around. We will defiantly rent from Randy Moris again. We had a great time and can't wait to come back again next summer.
We really enjoyed our stay here! It was very easy to find, right on the strip. Parking was never an issue beings we had our own place to park. It was right across from the beach, which was never too busy to enjoy! Everything was clean and up to date. We cooked multiple meals and had no issues coming up with cooking utensiles.The beds were all very comfortable. Bathrooms were very clean and had plenty of towels and beings there were two, no one had to wait. The entire condo is very spacious for how small it actually is. Beats a hotel any day!
My family and I really enjoyed our trip to the beach this past summer. The owner was very helpful and friendly. He was able to help with any questions we had about the condo. We spent most of our time on the beach. The restaurants were all really nice! You must go to the Hangout and to Lulu's if you visit. It's a great place for people with children to stay. They had a basketball goal, mini golf and a play area out back for the children, which was really nice! You must visit Village by the Gulf!
Look no further! This condo can't be beat. The location is fabulous, just a walk across the street to the beach. It's comfortable, feels like home away from home. The manager Randy works with integrity, promptness, and professionalism. Truly southern hospitality at its finest. This will be the only condo I choose for my family from here on out. The Gulf itself is a great place for families. We really enjoyed hanging at LuLu's restaurant, exploring The Wharf, and of course playing at the beach. I highly recommend these attractions to anyone vacationing at Gulf Shores.
This condo is the best deal you can get in Gulf Shores. It is so charming and comfortable. The pricing for the area is unheard of. I truly felt at home while staying here. Southern hospitality at its finest. I can't say enough good things about it or the people who manage it. Look no further, this is the condo for you!
This condo was everything the add said it was. Location, location...across from the beach, next to a rest. nicest people ever. Condo was completely furnished with everything, down to laundry detergent! Owner was amazing, swimming pool, deck, grill, etc. We had two small grand kids with us, both pack and plays fit in both rooms, and they had plenty of room to play. The store was next door for milk and anything you needed. Randy was very helpful and amazing. Cleanest place we have stayed. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone. Thanks again for a great time and a wonderful place to stay. Mrs. Adams (Chatt, TN)
My friends and I have an annual college reunion trip at the beach. This year We visited gulf shores may 25-30th. I was very nervous renting frm an individual(this was my first time using homeaway.com). Randy was wondeful to work with. He answered all my questions and made the process extremely easy. The condo was perfect. The location very close to the beach yet far enough from the public beach access to make the beach enjoyable and not too crowded. Gulf shores was a wonderful place to vacation. Many wonderful places to eat(. Lamberts, The hangout, luLu's, and the cactus cantinaMexican grill we're a few of our favorites. We took a wonderful dolphin and "swamp" cruise. Can't say enough wonderful things about Gulf Shores and this condo. Thanks again Randy & Family!!
