Vacay Vibes ??    Apr 01, 2023

review star

We loved our stay at the sand dollar #13. It was nice to be on the end unit with our own private patio out the back down. Furnishings and bedding were very comfortable. Nice and close to the ocean access and plenty of room to just sit poolside all day. The location was ideal to walk to dinner each evening or an afternoon shopping. We loved our stay and can’t wait to return.

We stayed here the month of February 2023 We loved our stay. Comfortably decorated. Just a short walk to a public beach and to many of Gulf Shores best restaurants. Many shops to shop for souvenirs The highlight to our stay was having the Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras parade go right by the front of the condo. I recommend this condo for your Gulf Shores stay.
