Our party of 7 (3 adults, 4 kids)traveled 16 hours to get here. Check in was quicker than a hotel check in. When we arrived at the condo our kids gasped in awe at the spectacular view! We couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces for the duration of our stay. Beautiful well decorated condo with all ammenities top notch! Dishwasher, laundry, even an ice maker (convenient to fill up your beach cooler). Location is close to everything. We didn't eat out but once at Lulus and it was delicious. Went to Rouses grocery store for our daily food. Excellent store with fresh seafood. I will not rent a different condo, this one is the best with a west corner. We will be back next year. The beach access was quick and easy. I especially liked the rubbish chute located right outside the front door of the condo so there was no lugging garbage down 14 floors. I have told everyone about our experience but almost want to keep it secret so I don't have to fight for reservations :) We are beyond impressed! My hubby mentioned it was better than Mexico and I agree. We did a few short day trips while in the area including Fort Morgan Civil war fort (free) and the Naval Base in Pensacola where we toured the air force museum and caught a glimpse of the Blue angels practicing (also Free). Made a pit stop over to Joe Pattis seafood market in Pensacola and bought crawfish, stone crab, and royal red shrimp! You won't be dissapointed in this place! Reserve your stay before I do again!!!
very relaxing, convenient to the beach and restaurants

We have been meeting our friends for a joint family vacation for several years. The last two years have been at this condo b/c it's the best! It's a beautiful 3 BR 3 Ba, with granite countertops, stainless steal appliances, new washer and dryer and it's clean!!! All the drawers in the dressers are clean, no lint left behind from the previous renters. The floors are wonderful, no sand under your toes. The pool is zero entry which is great for little ones to play. The work out facility isn't large but very clean. Everything is in great shape, not worn or broken. You can tell the owners take very good, no great, care of this unit! Plus the location is convenient to walk to restaurants or a short drive. We will definitely be back and can't wait!

This is our third experience staying at the San Carlos and I have fallen in love with it each time. The condo (1409) was well appointed and adequately stocked! I love the short walk to the beach without going down/up stairs! That was a huge plus for us since we are older.The restaurants in the area were close and the food was excellent. Young's Suncoast was above average in helping with the reservations! We will definitively be back!

We visit Gulf Shores every summer and stay in a large unit like this. This unit was the best by far, of any we have stayed in. Our Kids and grandkids stayed with us. There were 10 - 12 of us on any given night. There was plenty of room. The open living room and kitchen layout were wonderful. The balcony was very large. Can't say enough about this unit. Very beautiful. Close to everything.

Very nice decor, comfortable beds, clean, and plenty of bathrooms. We had 4 adults, two 18 year old boys, and three kids we had plenty of space to spread out.

This condo is very spacious and has beautiful decorating. Wonderful balcony and view also. Everything we needed was included. We went at the end of March for Spring break so the weather was not as warm as we would like and ocean was cold. Would be nice if pool was heated, but I don't think most around there are. The three bedrooms and three baths were ideal for us and it was great to have two king beds. We had a great time and will definitely be back!

Best Condo So Far...

We loved our stay at San Carlos 1409! The pictures are great but when you get there it is even better! It fit 6 adults and 4 kids comfortably. Plently of room without feeling like you were crowding everyone. The view when you walk through the front door is amazing! We saw dolphins from the balcony several days in a row. The unit was well equipped for everything that we needed. Lots of pots and pans, etc... Didin't have to buy anything. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was a real time saver since the kids seemed to change clothes 3 times a day! We all loved the beach. It's beautiful! Very easy to get to...down the elevator and onto the boardwalk! Lots of shells for the kids to find. The kids loved to pool too.
Only caution I would put out there is that the sofa bed is not comfortable, but that is pretty typical of sofa beds. We brought a queen size inflatable mattress just incase and used that instead. There is actually enough room for 2 queen sized mattresses in the living room if you move the coffee table. Oh and watch your step from the living room onto the balcony! It's a toe getter if you are not careful!
The location was great! Really close to a lot of things. Places like Walmart and Target were not far away. (Maybe a mile or so) Also the fishing pier is just a mile away.
We enjoyed eating at "Mikee's" it was just a few blocks north of the condo. We also enjoyed LuLu's and Lambert's Café. There is also a Waffle House right across the street from the condo, but we never ate there. The worst place we ate while there was Hazel's seafood buffet. It was really bad, but live and learn!
Lots of places around to buy souvenirs. Probably the best value we found was at the shop on the west side of "The Hangout" (another popular place). They had the best prices.
Overall we loved this place and would come back again! It was so nice that I would be afraid to try a different condo in fear that we would be disappointed!
