Really cute waterfront condo. Private balcony over looking the Lagoon. Gazebo, pier to fish from or tie up your boat/jet ski, wireless internet 2TV's, 1-32"Flat Screen, VCR/DVD player. NON-SMOKING, Free amenities pkg,
This condo is located in a very convenient area. All the big stores are just a few miles away and the beach is right across the street. Little Lagoon is right outside the door and the view was great. We enjoyed our time staying in this condo - although if you have more than 3 people (including a small child), it might feel small. The inside of the place was clean and pleasant as well.

This condo worked great for my family of 4 (2 adults, 4 yr old, and 3 yr old). For less than $100 per day we had a great view of the lagoon and an easy walk to the beach. We loved having the lagoon, the pier, great sunsets and lots of birds right out of our front door. We gave the kids the king bed and brought our air mattress to sleep on, which we put on the unfolded pull out couch and it worked fine. I was glad we did not have to sleep on the pull out couch since the mattress was super thin. The condo is small, so pulling out the couch does require moving a coffee table and then it's in the way. We just moved it permanently by the wall behind the dining table. The only other big complaint was the carpet was really dirty looking. I'm sure it had been vacuumed, but it needed to be steam cleaned or replaced. We cooked most meals at the condo and the kitchen worked fine. We recommend getting steamed shrimp from S and S Seafood down the road toward Hwy 59. $20 for 1 1/2 lbs and it was delicious! The Little Lagoon Pass is a great place to take little kids to play in the water. It's really shallow and no waves. We found hermit crabs and little sand dollars in the water, the kids loved it. The rental process through anchor was simple and painless (just wish they didn't charge a fee for using credit cards).
Beautiful views, friendly people

The rental unit was clean & neat, everything worked well, close to so many beautiful views, and I loved the little balcony to drink coffee on. I was up early so many mornings and was rewarded with wildlife and birds with my am coffee. I am hoping to come back again next year. I found the weather to be perfect for the long walks I took. The fresh produce at some of the outdoor markets was delicious and I can't say enough about the fresh shrimp right out of the Gulf. Wow!

We were very impress with how clean the condo was and how well maintained it had been. The service was excellent. we would recomend it to friends that want to bring their pet to the beach like we did as well.

Cozy Beach Cottage
Left on 05/25/2012 for a stay in April 2012 | Mr & Mrs Czech & family
Inside you'll find your home away from home to be clean and comfortable. It has everything that you need to make your vacation a memorable one. The deck has a table & chair set on to relax & enjoy the sunsets over the bay. You're across the street from the ocean, where you can enjoy long walks on the "quiet" beach. You'll find plenty of shells and sea creatures. For the young and old you find minature golfing, jet skis, go karts, movie theaters, shopps, Fort, natural sea shore and plenty of restuarants nearby. Rain or shine you will have something to do. We enjoyed our stay with our 2 older children. We will come back!

I have always loved Gulf Shores, but to have stayed there in the summer house my wife and I would not have wanted to stay no other place on the beach. Our stay was wonderful the place was very nice and clean and everything was in place. It was like being at home away from home. We had an enjoyable, peaceful stay, thank you very much.

We have been coming to Summer House for 14 years. It's our "home" away from home. It's not to far from things to do but far enough away for R&R.; My daughter loves fishing from the pier. Always very friendly people staying there. Already booked for next year.

We really enjoyed our time in Gulf Shores. The staff was quite helpful and the condo was in great shape. We hope to make this an annual event.
Great location for this small attractive unit
Left on 04/02/2010 for a stay in March 2010 | jb
We choose this unit because of its location. This unit faces the lagoon and has easy access to the Gulf beach.
Due to the chilly temperature and significant winds, we did not have one beach day without wearing heavy clothing. Since this forced us to spend more time indoors, the smallness of this nicely decorated unit was troublesome at times during our one week rental.

Making the initial reservation was so easy. The condo was in a great location
and had all the amenities we needed.
The down side was the check-in procedure. Our check-in date was
Thanksgiving day and we were unaware of how to get our information and key.
It turned out OK thanks to the answering service that got hold of someone to
tell us what to do. We were just a little scared driving for 12 hours and then
not knowing what to do.
We would definately like to come back to the condo in the future. Hopefully on
a warmer day.
The owner might want to put some mouse bait out also. We had a furry one
crawling around the whole time we was there. Read more

Thank you for the input. The mouse situation has been dealt with. We have had so much rain the past couple of months the little creatures are trying to get to dry ground. I apologize for the inconvenience about directions, you were suppose to be notified as to where to pick up you packet. We hope to see you again soon.

I am so glad we chose Anchor Vacation Rentals to work with on our first trip to Gulf Shores. The condo was great. The location on the sound side was peaceful and only steps from the beachfront. The condo was affordable and had everything provided that we could have possibly needed. We absolutely plan to return and use Anchor again!

i was pleasantly suprised by the location and quality of my stay. having a pier that went out into the lagoon was great; and the beach located just across the street- it was like having the best of two worlds! the room was great, very clean. my usual vacation time is spent doing work around the house, service trips out of the country, or some other non-relaxing endevor. the main point of this trip that i took was to be a beach bum- thanks to anchor vacations and summer house for making it amazing. for the first time in a long time i did absolutly nothing productive.

I really enjoyed my stay here in 09. I enjoyed the view of the bay out the front of the condo and the very short walk to the beach. And I loved the convenience to everything in Gulf Shores but NOT being right in the middle of the traffic, etc. The condo was cozy, clean and perfect :)

Beach Living For You AND Your Pets!

Great location that is far enough down West Beach Blvd. so that you have a nice residential feel. Unit faces the lagoon with a shared pier for fishing or watching the sunsets. Lots of coastal birds and shells. Best of all, this unit is pet friendly, but doesn't smell or look that way:) Short walk to the deeded beach access across the street and the ladies of Anchor Realty were very accomodating and we enjoyed every minute! The kitchen is well stocked (smallish) for cooking in with everything you need. Visit Cosmo's for a great dinner and take a photo of your dog for their bulletin board. Great food!

Nice condo it's just not on the beach. It does have a lagoon view and that is nice. Great parking, nice pool. Condo was small and only sleeps 2 unless you blow up the air mattress.
