A little about Gulf Shores:
If you are looking for a family environment with world-class beaches without the hassles of having the entire world there with you, the Alabama gulf coast is where you want to be. It one of the best kept secrets around.
Clean, wide,white beaches, people walking down the beach road, local restaurants serving everything from boiled shrimp to Grouper Roulade. Welcome to the Alabama Gulf Coast.
This is a place where families can come, relax and play without the huge crowds and distractions that are so common with other popular beaches.
There is no shortage of attractions either. Of course the beach is everyone’s favorite but within a 5 minute ride you can enjoy any number of activities from the local zoo, the water park, the go-cart tracks and zip lines. There is para sailing, deep-sea fishing and some the best golf courses in the country.

Wonderful family vacation!
Wonderful condo. Perfect for a family of 4! Clean condo and property! Perfect with 2 pools for your little ones. Awesome view from your balcony! Great location close to restaurants and shopping. Mr Fitts was wonderful to work with and I could tell he truly wants his renters to be pleased and have a great vacation. We’ll be back soon!
Best on the Beach!
This was our first stay at the Lighthouse and it was FANTASTIC! The location couldn’t be any better. Short walk to all the hot spots. Rod was very accommodating and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this condo, and plan to return!
This was our third stay at the Lighthouse, and Rod’s condo was great! Plenty of room, comfortable mattress, stocked kitchen and welcoming décor. We really liked the lounge chair on the balcony (not to mention the VIEW!) and the high-quality window treatments. With all the comforts of home on the beautiful beach, this condo was perfect for our family. Rod makes the reservation process so easy, and I really appreciated that he checked in on us the day of our arrival. And the keyless entry is a HUGE convenience! Thank Rod and Kathy for sharing your place with us!
Awesome place right on the beach!
This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and we will definitely go back and stay at this same place! The condo was steps away from a great beach. It was very comfortable and roomy for the 5 of us and very modern and clean. The balcony has a great view of the beach and water and we did see some dolphins! It is located within walking distance to some great places to eat, shop, and even buy a few necessities at a reasonable price. Mr. Fitts was a joy to work with and provided some very helpful tips on his beach days website and blogs. Thank you for an awesome vacation with my family!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!
This is the third year for our family to take a “girls only” trip. We love Gulf Shores. It is so family oriented. Crystal Shores is located right on the beach and just a few feet from the gorgeous white sand, and is within walking distance to several restaurants and souvenir shops. Zoo, amusement park, water park, mini golf and other attractions are just a short drive and are highly recommended. (We especially loved the “bumper boats” at the amusement park). The condo is beautiful and by far the prettiest that we have stayed in thus far. The view from the 10th floor is absolutely AMAZING!!!!! Rod was the most pleasant man to work with. Great vacation!!! Hope to be back next year.
Beautiful condo with a beautiful view. Plenty of space for our family of 5 & only steps away from the beach! Mr. Fitts was wonderful to work with & extremely helpful. We will most definitely be staying here again!!
What a surprise
When I opened the front door of the condo I saw a spectacular view. It was better than imagined. The condo was perfect. Rod was wonderful to deal with. He even called the day we arrived to make sure everything was good. Would not hesitate to book again and recommend to friends
Excellent condo – wonderful amenities
The condo was great. Very clean and had everything you needed plus more. Communication from the owner was great – thanks for checking with us Saturday. Excellent location, beautiful view. Hadn’t been to Gulf Shores since the 1990s so things had changed, particularly after the hurricane. Hope to come back again.
I had a great vacation. Such a great condo. I love it. Can’t wait till next year. Thanks for everything.
Thanks for staying with us !
