Gulf Shores
5/5 stars
Great group to work with and they put their customers 1st. We experienced a little hiccup and our issue was quickly resolved.
- Tim
Cozy but comfortable
4/5 stars
Although it's almost 40 years old, we found the Surf and Racket Club to be a well-cared-for facility. The on-site staff was welcoming, helpful and friendly. Unit 702a, a one bedroom unit, is small (we called it cozy), but it's an efficient layout and has a great balcony overlooking the Gulf. I wouldn't describe it as luxurious, but it was reasonably priced for our 2-month stay. With more comfortable furniture, we would give it a 5-Star rating.

Nice place with responsive property management

Would give 5 stars if it wasn't for the extra fees charged.

Very clean
4/5 stars
My daughter and I had a nice stay. The condo is small, but fine for just the two of us. Upon arrival we noticed it was very clean. It also has a nice view of the gulf from the balcony. The only thing I would change is that the silverware needs replaced. The stove also is not great. I cooked pancakes on the lowest level and set the smoke detector off. The burners are not level either so when cooking it was hard to make sure everything cooked evenly. The dishwasher also did not clean very well. I ran the dishwasher and then realized there was food still on the dishes so I had to rewash them by hand. Other then the kitchen issues we liked to condo. Good location. Great beach.

Short but sweet visit!
5/5 stars
We’ve stayed at Gulf Shores Surf & Racquet before and we love the easy beach access and the views of the beach as well as of the bay. The resort is well taken care of and the pool is great! This was our first time to stay in 702A and we were not disappointed. The unit had everything we needed and was very clean. Our arrival was seamless as there are no keys to go pick up. This unit has a keypad so that is very helpful! The booking company even reached out to us after we got there to be sure we didn’t need anything. The only thing that would have made our trip better was if we had more time to spend here!

Peaceful Stay
5/5 stars
We had a great month long stay at the Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club in condo 702A. It was the perfect size for a couple. We loved having breakfast on the balcony after our sunrise walks and watching the dolphins from the balcony. The location is perfect for folks that like to walk and we left the truck parked most days and walked the 3 miles into town if we wanted a restaurant meal. iTrip was responsive and the condo was tidy and it was just a perfect stay! Thanks!

You fully met my needs for an off-season flexible, affordable place to stay for an undetermined period of time due to difficulties with the closing on my new home. I just needed a small place for one person and the unit at Gulf Shores surf and racquet fully met my needs and then some. Very clean safe and beautiful facility with stunning view of the beach great amenities. I hated to leave when my home was ready. I had been through so much stress and immediately upon my arrival and throughout my stay I was completely at peace.

Great place to stay

This condo was exactly as described. Nice kitchen, good view of beach, plenty of towels and sheets, very clean. We would definable stay here again. The only complaint was that the coffee maker could probably be replaced.

Amazing Condo Experience
5/5 stars
I don't feel like the reviews on this place do it justice. Before you walk into the place, you see a view of the Gulf. Once you are inside, you go to the patio and there is a spectacular view of the ocean. The place was extremely clean and the kitchen was nice sized. I would definitely come back here. It slept 2 comfortably.

Beautiful view from the 7th floor. The furniture and decor were very nice and super comfortable. Kitchen and bathroom were fully equipped. We had a wonderful stay in this unit. Only one problem, the ice maker did not work, but we bought a bag of ice and problem solved. Loved this unit!

Spring break 2017
4/5 stars
The condo was great and suited our needs well. Everything was as described. It was clean and well furnished. The amenities were great. We enjoyed the beach, pool, fishing docks, tennis and shuffle board. My only complaints were that the hot water heater was so small I ran out of hot water taking a showe so the other 3 could not shower. The stairwells were not cleaned all week. Rotting fruit in multiple places and litter was never picked up the entire week. The stairs and walls could stand to be power washed. The pool area was nice and clean though.

5/5 stars
Couch in condo very uncomfortable and needs updating. The lamp next to chair needs some repair. Only two hand towels in bathroom, could have used a couple more. Also, had to buy some dish towels for kitchen. There were only two in kitchen. Having said all that, we had a great time and enjoyed the condo. We had a fantastic view. We did rent again and looking forward to next year. Would recommend condo to everyone.

Apt. 702
5/5 stars
We enjoyed staying at this unit at the Surf And Raquet Club in Gulf Shores. We will definitely be back. It was very nicely decorated which made us feel right at home. We loved that we had beautiful sunsets and sunrises. While the unit was very clean the shower curtain had some mold growing on the bottom. This was the only issue we had. The pool was awesome and beach access across the street with a beautiful beach which was comfortably busy. Can't wait for our next stay here!
- Nicole

Thank you for your recent stay! So nice to hear you enjoyed your stay and the complex. I will have the shower curtain taken care of immediately. Thankfully that was the only issue. You certainly do have the best of both worlds, with the beach being across the street and the lagoon behind you. We love to hear our guest comment on returning!

We had a great time
3/5 stars
The condo we rented was average/nice. The cleanliness wasn't tip top but not bad. Meaning we had to move a chair and there was trash and cookies under the chair, some splatter on the wall behind trash can and the mirror in the bedroom wasn't clean. I am a clean freak so that may not bother anybody else. The sleeper sofa was very uncomfortable to sit on. The cushions sunk in making it impossible to enjoy sitting in the living room. So we let the bed out thinking that would make it better but way worse bar right in the middle of your back. The dishwasher was also broken and I learned that after loading it all week thinking I would run it on last day. The walkways where the elevators were smelled like trash sitting out on a very hot day the front office smelled the same. Other than that what I call minor issues we had a great time and would recommend that condo to anyone we know. I would tell them about the uncomfortable couch but the rest was just minor issues. We stayed a week so having to sit on a couch like that was very disappointing when we paid $1190 for 5 nights.

Thank you for your recent stay! Sorry to hear of the housekeeping issues you encountered. You should have let us know so that we could have addressed them for you. I too enjoy cleanliness. I can have the sofa evaluated to see if there is something that can be done to prevent the cushions from sinking. Happy to report the dishwasher is now fixed and in working order. The horrid smell could possible coming from the trash chutes and the heighten use they are getting during the summer season. Thankfully you did not have to spend much time in the onsite office. We value our guest input and appreciate your feedback!

Exceptionally Clean
4/5 stars
We enjoyed our three-night stay in this neat, super clean condo across the road from the beach. It was just the right size for just my husband and me, and we enjoyed the ocean view from the balcony. Price is probably competitive to other condos of this size and location which was a little farther out than we usually stay. Overall, it served the purpose.
- Ginny
Fabulous! Loved our condo!

Great condo, pool, beach. Would definitely stay here again. Booking was easy and appreciated the contacts before, during and after our stay.

Great location. Very clean. Amazing time.
4/5 stars
The condo was very clean and updated. Its location was great as we were wanting to avoid the Spring Break crowd but wanted beach time. The lagoon offered some nice fishing opportunities for my son and the pool was nice to relax in. The only down side to the entire trip was when the door blew open from some high gusts in the middle of the night.

Good price, nice view, average quality
3/5 stars
The price was very good. The ocean view was nice. Nice chairs on the balcony. Convenient to the beach. The quality of the rental was very average. The mattress was moderate quality and not very comfortable. The couch was also worn out so it didn't sit very well. The internet worked, but was so slow you couldn't hardly surf much less watch netflix or other movie streaming. The pool was nice although we didn't use it. It had shaded areas around the pool all during the day for those that don't want to get too much sun exposure. The elevator was fast and the building had carts for use to take stuff to and from the room. I would only recommend for two people. There is not a door between the bedroom and the den, just a curtain.

Thank you for your recent stay! This complex offers many advantages for guest. The views whether it is Gulf front or of the Back Bay waters are very relaxing. Internet on the island can be slow from time to time. For the age of the complex it is impressive to know the elevator was fast. We appreciate your input and will look into your suggestions.

Great condo!
5/5 stars
This condominium was really nice. It was decorated very cute and had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation in Gulf Shores, AL. The view from the balcony was just breathtaking as there was full view of the ocean. The pool was also a great plus! The only suggestion I would make is for the owner to buy a new mattress for the bed and also buy a new couch. Both of those things were sinking in the middle after much use. Other than that, the stay was excellent! Thank you for sharing your home with us!
- Trish H

Thank you for your recent stay! Glad to hear your stay was enjoyable. The unit does offer an exceptional view, and the amenities at the complex are a great plus! I certainly appreciate the suggestions and will access the issues. While it is not always easy to make a brand new purchase, we will certainly investigate and see what options are available. We appreciate the feedback! We value input from all of our guests. Thankfully you enjoyed your stay!

Relaxing place to stay
4/5 stars
I decided to take a vacation alone to relax and do some thinking. Friends of mine that had stayed in the same set of condos told me about this place. It was perfect for relaxing. The beach was beautiful and the waterway behind was awesome. I watched the sun set every night. I would have liked to have had food places a little closer but other than that, it was great.

Great Condo, Rental Agency Could Be Better
4/5 stars
My husband and our children (5 and 2 year old boys) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was clean, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. The washer and dryer are tiny, but I think they are all that way...just bring liquid soap instead of pods like I did so that you don't waste them washing only about 3-4 towels at a time. The view is great and you barely even notice that you are across the street rather than right on the ocean. We loved how warm the pool was and that this complex is far enough down that the traffic was minimal, making crossing the street to the ocean very easy. The beach access area was busy, but never so busy that we couldn't find a spot. The bed in the bedroom was very comfortable and we had a great night's sleep each night. The only complaint I would have about the condo itself is that the sofa sleeper was extremely uncomfortable...mostly just the bars in your back. Luckily, we had two skinny kiddos sleeping on it and neither minded too much, but I would absolutely not recommend adults or even older children sleeping on it as my husband couldn't handle it for more than about ten minutes. As for the rental agency, when we showed up at 3pm on Sunday to get our keys, they weren't in the box (they were supposed to be there by 2pm). I called the number on the email I had received and spoke with Joe who was very sweet. While on the phone with him, Mary Ann showed up and I asked if she was from the agency. She said yes and I told Joe (on the phone) that someone was there so I could let him go. She demanded to know to with whom I was speaking and I told her Joe. She was clearly angry and correctly assumed I had called him because the keys were not there yet and she said, "The keys aren't supposed to be here until 3 o'clock and it's only 2 minutes after!" I politely said, "Oh, our papers said 2pm" (I didn't really care since we had just arrived about five minutes before her anyway, so I didn't say it angrily at all and was very polite). She cocked her head sideways and said, "Oh, right! I'd like to see those papers!"...clearly indicating she didn't believe me. I kept Joe on the line this entire time just because of the way Mary Ann was acting. I went back to the car and grabbed my papers, handed them to her, and she became upset again when she saw that they in fact said 2pm. She and Joe were telling me to ask one another things so I asked them to just talk to one another and handed her my phone. They argued for a few moments (mostly her asking him why the papers said 2pm for Sunday pick ups and telling him she was there at 2 minutes after 3pm). I took my packet out of the box in the meantime and stood there waiting for my phone back. Finally she looked at me and started to ask what else I needed (in a not very nice tone), but then realized she was on my phone and said "Oh, Joe, let me give this lady her phone back!" and then handed it back and I left. My husband asked why the lady was upset (he could tell from the car by her body language without even hearing her that she was being rude). I didn't complain because I didn't want to deal with anything like that when I was trying to relax and vacation, and I hoped she was just having a bad day and wasn't normally like that, but it was not a fun start to the stay. In the middle of the week, I needed to log onto the internet to check some things at my office, but when I tried the internet connection in the condo wasn't working (the network wasn't showing up and the router likely needed to be reset). I called the rental agency and they gave me a couple of passwords to try on other networks that were showing up, but none worked. They then said they would come reset the router in the condo next to us (the same people owned it and the router in that condo controlled our access, so we couldn't reset it ourselves). They never did. I called back again and was again told they would come reset it, but it never happened. I gave up because I didn't want to waste my vacation arguing over internet access and didn't need it that badly, but it was a little bothersome. Also, the key code we were given did not work. We are decently tech savvy and know how to use them...the code was simply wrong and no one at the agency could give us the correct one. The one they gave us was on the keychain and also on the packet they gave us, but was simply not correct. They insisted we were not putting it in correctly, but that was not the problem. Overall, I would recommend this condo, but not the rental agency. We get a discount if we use them again in the future, but I'd rather pay the difference and use a different company.
