We have rented Crystal Shores 307 from Michael many times and consider this location, unit and host perfect. The communication with Michael via phone, text, or email has always been immediate. He is so easy to work with and has thought of everything a guest would need and enjoy during a stay. The unit is always very clean and beautifully decorated. The 3rd floor location allows us to use the steps for easy beach going and a great view from the porch. We will definitely choose this unit and host again and again.
We have been vacationing at Gulf Shores for 17 years and this was our 5th time to stay at Crystal Shores and our first in 307. We always select an "07" unit in order to catch the sunset over the lagoon. Michael's unit was by far the best unit we have stayed in ... he has it decorated so nice that it feels like you are staying in a home and not a hodge podge of beach furniture. The kitchen was fully stocked. In fact there are things that we usually pack because they don't have them in other condos, but Michael has provided them. We do cook in our unit throughout the week and there were plenty of pots and pans and "Tupperware" for left overs. That is something that IS NOT in other units ... usually only one pot and one pan and no cookie sheets for biscuits! We had a few questions about the new policies at Crystal Shores and Michael answered all our questions and provided even more information that we knew to ask! We have a 15 hour drive to get to the beach and we were so comfortable upon arriving that it felt like home. We arrived about 2 hours early and Michael was finishing the final cleaning details, but was so nice and polite and offered us keys to head to the beach and/or game room. The unit was clean and smelled really fresh. Even the patio window was clean ... no more packing the Windex! If you are new to Gulf Shores and are considering staying on the "West Side" ... which in our opinion is the "Best Side" please consider staying in 307. You will not be disappointed!
Owner's Response: Thanks so much... From day one I have made an effort to NOT feel like a rental unit but like that of a good friend. Michael
This condo is fabulous! We have stayed here 3 times and each time the condo has been exactly what we needed. Very nicely decorated, extremely clean and everything we need while on the beach. Thank you Michael for being so attentive to us - even when we forget to pack all our belongings!!! We are looking forward to more stays in 307 at Crystal Shores!!!
I have been coming to Gulf Shores for almost 35 years now and I must say, this is hands-down, one of the nicest units I've ever stayed in. Michael's attention to detail is outstanding. The unit is furnished in the latest style and extremely comfortable. He said I would like staying in a corner and unit and I did - it's well away from the elevator so absolutely no noise! Unlike a lot of vacationers, I like to cook even during my down time. That has been challenging with past stays in different developments. Even cracking a can of biscuits and baking them was hard due to the lack of cookware essentials. Not so here - the kitchen is fully stocked with very nice cookware, implements and dishes. He even provided dishwasher detergent, liquid soap, etc. Not so in other units! He was easy to deal with and very responsive to any communication between us. Stay here - you won't be sorry!
Owner's Response: Michelle, Thanks for the review. I work hard at making my guests stay as nice as possible and try to furnish and provide the things I would want when on vacation not the cheapest thing possible. Just the opposite. Thanks again and hope to see you back some day! Michael
Owner's Response: Michelle, Details matter and when you stay in my property and I'm glad after 35 years you've found my unit. Hope to see you back again soon! Michael
This is our second visit to this same condo & we are likely planning a third. Michael has been great to work with both times. This place is nice and works very well for our family of four.
Owner's Response: Thanks again for choosing CS307... again and again... tells me I am doing something right and indeed I try to make sure every guest would like to come back again. See you next time you are in Gulf Shores!! Michael
Owner's Response: Travis, For any owner the proof is in the desire for any guest to say I want to come back to this specific unit... Hope to see you folks again next October! Michael
