Even though we came during the off season, this was the most beautiful location. The staff that welcomed us was very gracious and the grounds are very well kept.
We could honestly just live at The Sea Robin 11a;) We really enjoyed our stay and hope to make it a regular visit.
Beds were very comfortable and the owners have really thought of everything that you would need from home in the kitchen--I cooked our Thanksgiving dinner here with no issues and my airman loved having a home cooked meal! Read more

we were as always very happy with the stay. A little sad that the Tiki bar was not open. We tried to get that informatioin before booking but could not get a return phone call. The unit was very nice and pretty quiet at the pool.

The home we stayed in was very nice and well kept. The pool was very nice. But the landscaping and roads for the complex were awful and in much need of maintenance. You almost need a jeep to get through the potholed gravel roads of the complex. You can walk to the beach from this location in 10-15 minutes, but part of that walk is adjacent to a very busy highway and not safe for kids. Read more
Response from Perdido Key Resort Management - 09/27/2012
Thank you for the feedback. Good news, as of mid-September the roads were repaired - no more potholes. Agreed concerning walking along the road to the beach. It would be a better choice to jump in the car and go to Johnson Beach the National Seashore which is protected from any development and is 7 miles long, 2 of which you can park your car along the shoreline road.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Sea Robin. The unit is roomy and very clean. Nearly everything we needed was provided. The big covered front porch was a favorite landing spot for the whole family. The community is very nice and the pool is outstanding. The only downside was that the office was often not open.
Awesome as always!

We called in and were steered right in to get our keys and pool bands. Went on to our place at the Sea Robin. We didn't understand the lock, we called and were told it would be just 5 minutes, not true, it was actually 2.5 minutes. As it turned out it was operator problems, I didn't understand how to use the fancy convenience lock on the front door. The pool, the pool, the pool. Swim, safety, picturesque, clean, Jacuzzi... loved it! We wish our trip wasn't so short and now we're planning a family reunion at this property.
Great place to stay, a "home away form home"

Let me start by saying we arrived at midnight and could not find our door code. I'm sure they emailed it to me, but I just couldn't find it. I had to call the resort manager at midnight and wake him up to get in. He was so nice and got out of bed so I could get my family into theirs, without a hint of attitude I might add. This really made a positive impression on me right from the start. The Sea Robbin was a great, the owners have went the extra mile to make it feel like home. we will be back for sure. The amenities where great, we had one rainy day on our vacation and the indoor pool and hot tub still gave us something enjoyable to do. with three small children it would have been a nightmare to be stuck in a small hotel room all day. We love the purple parrot and 11a is just one of many great places to stay there. The staff was very helpful, Great location, and affordable, we have nothing bad to say.

The house was very cozy and well furnished. Plenty of towels and extra pillows. For the most part, it was pretty clean when we checked in. Shower curtain in the master bath had mold on it and needed replacing long ago. Slight smell that could have benefited from some air fresheners on bottom floor. Tv in master bedroom needed replacing with flatscreen. Old box style with poor picture quality. The complex itself was very nice. Able to park right in front of the house. Loved the pool area. Water was a little cold, but to be expected in early april. Staff at check in was very polite and helpful. Location was good for restuarants and close driving beach access. Would recommend Bella Luna for pizza. The rating choices are 3 stars average to 4 stars very good. I would opt for 3 1/2 starts Good if that was a choice. It was better than average, but not very Good. Read more

Thank you for leaving your feedback and mentioning how very well the condo has been equipped. The condos owners take a great deal of pride in their vacation home and hope that all vacationers have a fantastic stay with everything they need in the condo. I will have the shower liner replaced immediately and pass along the feedback regarding the television in the master bedroom. There is a flat screen television in the living room and both televisions have a dvd player. The parking for this condo is most often very good compared to most other two bedroom condos in the resort. So the stay was good and better than most (Average), but there were a couple things which could have been different to make it better. I hope you will come back to stay with us during the summer when it is a bit warmer. Kindest Regards, JD Hallam PKRM Rental Manager

We've stayed at the Purple parrot about five times. We always try out a different house and have absolutely loved them all. It is the perfect place to get away from it all and really just rest. Sometimes you come back froma vacation feeling more tired than when you left...not with this one! They take very good care of you and everything you need is already there! We will be back for our annual visit next October!

We truly enjoyed out stay at Perdido Key Resort. The Sea Robin 11a was very nice. Comfortable beds, well furnished, and the marguarita machine worked great! We came to Pensacola to visit our son in the air Force there. We cooked out at our condo, enjoyed the pool, and the music entertainment at the Tiki Bar. The folks in the office were extremely friendly.

The Sea Robin was great and very comfortable. In October the water was chilly but the indoor pool was great and we swam till it closed. The staff was very friendly and even helped us out finding a boat rental. Also the Tiki bar played live music at night which was nice to listen on the porch. The music also stopped at a decent time. This place is excellent for the family.
This was a great trip!

I did alot of research before making reservations for this beach trip. Although I really liked the idea of being able to see the beach from our condo, we are not high rise condominium kind of people. So the Purple Parrot was an excellent alternative for us!
It truly was not a hazzle to drive to the beach the days that we went and our kids really enjoyed the awesome pool at the complex. We visited several of the park beaches in the area. The whole family, especially our two and four year old children enjoyed taking a stroll down the fishing pier at Orange Beach. The comfortable setting of this house was great for my non-waterloving husband to be able to relax and enjoy watching the kickoff to the NFL season through the use of the great cable package included with the rental! He also really enjoyed getting to see the Blue angels practice their high flying and amazing show on their home base just 15 minutes from the house!
Our kids loved playing with the beach toys left inside the front door and kept themselves busy playing in the "sand box" just down the steps several times during our stay!
Thanks to the management for working with us in rescheduling after a family illness! It was a much needed break from alot of stress!
Lots of enjoyment to be had by all at the Purple Parrot and the Sea Robin!

The Sea Robin is in the perfect location, near the pool but not too close. If you stay over the weekend, you can hear the live music coming from the Tiki Bar when you sit on the patio!
The furnishings are comfortable, it was clean, and there are plenty of towels, sheets, and pots & pans to cook with. We loved the privacy, we loved that the beach was just a couple of minutes away -- and we loved that the Johnson's Beach Pass came with the rental.
The only reason I gave cleanliness four stars instead of five was because there was a roach the size of a mouse inhabiting the kitchen. Other than that, the house was spotless!
I would definitely recommend The Sea Robin to anyone, and we will definitely be back next year! Read more

Thanks for taking the time to leave us with your feedback. We have all of our properties sprayed 4 times a year and additionally if they ever seem to need it as a precaution. However, if the doors are left open we are unable to prevent a bug from coming inside just as it would be in any property.

What we liked best about Purple Parrot Resort was that the condos are individual homes in a village of 60 stand alone homes, unlike the high rise condo buildings which line the beach. Our condo contained everything we needed to make our month long stay pleasant. The beds were comfortable, the unit contained a washer and dryer, the kitchen was fully equipped for preparing any meals we chose to eat at the condo; in short, the condo contained everything we needed to be comfortable and to enjoy our stay.
The condo is part of the Purple Parrot Resort at Perdido Key. We were within short walking distance to the beach and a national park. A great Mexican restaurant, Vallarta, was across the street about one block away. We were close to a delicious Italian/pizza restaurant, Lillians. The Naval Air Station nearby contains a Naval Air Museum which is free and open to the public. It contains an I-max theatre which features interesting movies. One of our frequent stops during our stay was Joe Patti's Seafood, which sells delicious fresh fish and seafood.
The resort itself is quiet, clean, has many very pleasant owners and guests, and is staffed by friendly, competent staff.
The recreation center contained an indoor pool, sauna, hot tub, and complete shower rooms for men and women. The part of the center which we enjoyed and used most was the fully equipped exercise room which was like our own private facility. It contains two treadmills, two exercise bikes, an elliptical trainer, and a weight machine. We rarely had to delay our exercise due to other folks using the machines we desired. Unfortunately, the weather didn't allow us to use the outdoor pool which is lovely.
Our stay was a plus. The height of the tubs in both bathrooms was a challenge for us and our guests. We had problems with the ice maker, phones, and Internet access; however, these were not major issues. We will recommend the Purple Parrot Resort to those planning a trip to Florida. Read more

Thanks for the thorough feedback and we are glad that you enjoyed your time here in The Sea Robin! I really value the breakdown of your stay as it helps to give future guests a feel for what to expect at the resort, in the condo, and the surrounding area. Everyone in our office works very hard to give accurate information pertaining a stay here in Perdido Key and when someone takes the time as you have done to really breakdown a vacation from the 'guest's perspective' we appreciate it! In regards to the few minor things that came up in the month that you were here; I am glad that we were able to get the ice maker and internet working quickly. The phone line runs through the internet connection, so when we replaced the modem everything came up and has continued to work without any issues. As I am sure you noticed, the owners of this particular condo have put a great deal of time and effort into making it as comfortable as possible for our guests. I will touch base with them concerning the tubs to see if we can brainstorm together and possibly come up with a solution to the height of the sides. I am glad that your stay 'was a plus' and we are looking forward to seeing you again soon! Thanks again and happy travels, JD Hallam Rental Manager

We stayed at the Happy Place 8/6-8/9 2009. When we unlocked the front door we knew we had done good!!!! The house was very, very nice very well maintained and updated. I can't think of enough good thing to say. The overall experience was great we had no desire to come home!!!!! It was very close to a nice beach area and the pool at the resort was very nice with a cool waterfall that the kids really liked. The accomodations were spectacular. The only thing I could say in any negative way at all was we really wanted to stay one more night and left 2 messages with management to see if the house was available and never got a call back. I have and will continue to recommend this resort to everyone I know and will most definitely be back next year!!!

This was one of the best vacation "homes" ever. It was clean and roomy, and it provided everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. The pools were wonderful, and the exercise room had everything we wanted. The resort was peaceful, but it also allowed for a great night life with the Tiki Bar and entertainment. The manager was terrific. He went the extra mile to help us plan day trips. He was also helpful with restaurant choices. Thank you for the "happiest" vacation we have had in a long time.

We were searching for a vacation property that would accommodate my wife and I as well as our 21 year old daughter and 6 friends. The solution, we rented Happy Place and Yosandmine (1 bedroom). We all had a wonderful time. Both units were well equipped and comfortable. The closest beach was an easy walk. The pools were clean and well kept.
The Tiki bar had live entertainment on the weekend and made our arrival day (my birthday) lots of fun.
I recommend the Purple Parrot to anyone who wants to escape the high rise condo experience.

This home was a great selection for our family. The price was reasonable and the location was great. The setting was quiet and peaceful. The site was placed near great family dining. The home was also within walking distance of the Gulf Shores National Seashore, if one doesn't mind a short hike. The beach was never overcrowded. One problem with the beach we found was that it was difficult to swim in the ocean because of the jellyfish infestation. However, our family got a chance to see some great wildlife on this beach.
The pool was nice and relaxing but needed a few repairs. The only issue we had was that our laptops would not connect properly to the wireless internet. The young lady from the main office was very nice and tried to help us with the problem but could not establish a connection. However, the office provided us a network cable with which we could connect.
Other than that, our stay at "The Happy Place" was quite pleasant. We would definitely recommend this rental community and would consider staying there again.
