“Unit 303 Disaster”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

This was my family's first trip to Gulf Shores and we used Meyer Vacation Rentals to book this condo for a week in March 2013. When we arrived well after check in on a Saturday, we were upset to find that not only was the unit a disaster (mess), the owner was still occupying it with his friends. As we entered, he walked out of the bathroom to find us standing in the kitchen confused and upset. He immediately asked us who we were and why we were there. According to the owner, he had "no idea" that we had rented the condo for that week. So there my family stood, looking at the owner, his messy condo, and all of our suitcases out in the hall. Not at all pleased with the quality of his unit, attentiveness to his renters with the agency, or the agency, Meyer for their lack of propriety! About four hours later, the rental agency, Meyer, FINALLY brought us keys to a unit on the 1st floor (101). Which was very nice. Other than the disaster at unit 303, it was a pretty decent trip, however I will never stay at Pelican Pointe for future visits to Gulf Shores.

Room Tip: Corner Units are much nicer, however, the ground floor is not very private with beach go-ers walking...

Stayed here for Labor Day Weekend. Got a great deal from private owner. The property is nice and well kept. The outside pool and kiddie pool were overly crowded. It's right on the beach which is always nice! Also has tennis courts and indoor pool and hot-tub. I would stay here again.

Great view of the ocean no matter what unit you are in! The beach is well maintained and clean. Pool I adequate and clean, nothing fancy. Unit was as pictured and rental was a great experience. Glad I was here rather than one of the huge high rises with overwhelming crowds. This was also a quick few min. From the grocery stores and other local shops and restaurants.

Stayed here several summers with my family when I was growing up. Good times, LOTS of fun! I would definitely recommend one of the Phoenix properties. We would stay for a little over a week and each time, I never wanted to leave. It felt as though we were right at home with all of the space we had in the unit. Our own rooms were huge, the kitchen was huge, the living room was huge, and the balcony made a huge "L" shape. We always stayed in a unit located on one of the highest floors and had a breathtaking view of the beach/gulf. Gulf Shores is a great place to go. Very family-oriented. My father worked so hard to provide us with get away after get away!

My wife and I visited Pelican Pointe in October for the past 4 years. The accomodations are comfortable and the people are extremely friendly in the area. Orange Beach in October is much different than any other beach that I have visited. It is nothing like the bustling Myrtle, Daytona, or Panama City Beaches. The weather is warm, the sands are beautiful, and for the most part the place is empty. It is a wonderful place to go and relax without the noise or crowds, but still enjoy the prettiest beach in the southeast.

Room Tip: Go in the Fall when rates, tourists, and resturant lines are at a low.

We stayed at this 3 BR condo for a week in June and enjoyed it. The condo is located right between Adventure Island and Alvins Island in Orange Beach. It's a perfect location and close to everything. The facility itself has a nice indoor pool/hot tub at the front if the property and an outdoor pool/kiddie pool on the beach side. There isn't a ton of space to lay out by the pool considering the size of the place but the beach is huge in front. The room we stayed in was very nice with storm doors around the balcony and updated furnishings. The kitchen was large as was the living room. The bathrooms and bedrooms were a little smaller but still plenty of room. I plan on staying here again next year and would recommend it to anyone. I have stayed at over 30 different condos in this area and I'd rank this in the top 5 probably.
