We absolutely loved our stay here. The condo is very spacious, clean, and decorated so cute! I loved being on the lagoon with our own private beach and pool on the point overlooking the lagoon. The beach is just up the street and we did spend a day there but actually enjoyed the lagoon side just as much if not more. I highly recommend a stay here! We had 3 adults and 4 teenagers and were very comfortable.

The Happy Crab's reply:

yes- the lagoon is just the perfect spot and so private! Happy you enjoyed your stay!

The Happy Crab is officially my happy place    Jun 10, 2023

review star

From the moment we arrived it felt like walking into the perfect getaway destination. Everything is decorated in such a way that you feel like you’re vacationing in luxury and comfort. I had THE BEST night’s sleep I’ve had in months on the bed in the master bedroom. In fact, everyone staying with us said the beds and pillows were next level comfortable. 
The balconies are perfect for morning coffee and breakfast and we took advantage of them every day. I’m a huge fan of natural light and the Happy Crab had plenty with large windows facing the bayside. 
The pool was great, but the real treat was the lagoon beach. It was like having your own private beach all to yourself. The water was clear and clean, the sand was nice, and we happily sat basking in the sun listening to music while other guests played in the pool. We couldn’t have asked for better accommodations. I’ll definitely be booking with them again. This place is top notch!

Just like staying on a beach front!    Oct 20, 2022

review star

I really enjoyed my stay here! Loved that the condo sits on the corner. The picture windows overlooking the bay was phenomenal, and a large balcony to sit and drink your coffee. The kitchen overlooks into the dining and living area making it easy to interact with our fellow guests. Beds were super comfortable and everything was really clean. Also love that we can walk down to the bay which makes you feel like you're at the beach! I would definitely stay here again!

I'm so glad we chose to stay at this condo for the weekend! The VIEWS, the CLEANLINESS, the WELCOMING VIBE, and the list goes on! So many good things to say about this place. The morning sunrise, and evening sunset, the private beach and large pool, just everything about this condo was perfect! Even the decor is on point! I've stayed at many places and this one is definitely a place I will be returning!! The hosts are phenomenal as well, which is very important to me when choosing a place to spend my time and money!

This unit was so comfortable and the views were breathtaking! Everything was labeled and there will perks like a beach wagon, umbrella and chairs. Also floats and kids toys too. Furniture was super comfortable as were the beds. Well decorated and stocked. Neat and clean. Also close to all the necessities. Cute little store about a block away you can find almost anything you need there. Highly recommend this place! We so enjoyed our home away from home!

The perfect stay    Aug 03, 2022

I have been renting Condos and Villas for over 20 years now and this rental is one that provided the most breathtaking water views in at least 70% of the 3 bedrooms and main living area! My Father and I so enjoyed the tastefully furnished and decorated villa and appreciated the host's thoughtfulness in labeling electrical switches for lights, and fans and labeling kitchen interior shelving to direct where we could find cups, bowls, pot and pans, etc... The kitchen is very well STOCKED! The draperies in the sunny bedrooms are all able to block sunlight well so if you are sensitive to light in the morning and wish to sleep in, you can do so. The bathrooms and kitchen came fully stocked with starter bath products, toilet paper and little extras like lotion and antibacterial wipes.

The host was just so easy to work with and responded to any questions that we had before we took up residence and during our time in the villa. I truly felt that the host wished for us to have a wonderful stay but she wasn't intrusive.

The elevator situation is also the best I've encountered in this area. Hardly at any time did we have to wait for an elevator which was really nice.

The pool area was kept sparkling clean with cleaning done to the deck on a daily basis and the pool water was free of debris and algae.

The small beach area was enjoyed by children and adults alike.

We also were very appreciative of the fact that we could always find a parking space which at other complexes as proved to be a problem.

I also saw many families taking advantage of the fishing and using the fish clean stations and the communal barbecue area to grill their catches.

We just can't say enough good things about this hidden Gulf Shores gem and would encourage all to take advantage of this rare find and experience it yourself!

This is just so sweet...thank you for the kind words! We take pride in our condo and want everyone to enjoy! Thanks for staying!

Loved our stay at The Happy Crab    May 06, 2022

The Happy Crab condo was very clean and comfortable and the decor is beautiful. The huge picture window gives such a great view. I loved having a morning cup of coffee and looking out over the water. This condo has a small beach as well as a pool overlooking the water. I enjoyed the small beach so much that I never walked down to the public beach. It was just so relaxing. I will definitely stay here again!
