Book YOUR memorable beach vacation at Life By the Drop on Alabama CFY!

Cool beach breezes brush past while sipping champagne on the balcony with swaying palm trees and the serene Gulf Coast in the distance at this 2-bedroom, 2½-bathroom condo rental in Gulf Shores, Alabama. With accommodations for 6 guests — and a wonderful location within walking distance to the beach — this Gulf Shores rental offers a peaceful hideaway for your family vacation or getaway with friends. 

Start days at your Gulf Shores condo with breakfast made in the fully equipped kitchen that features stone countertops, stainless appliances, and all the tools needed for meals, snacks, and drinks. You can eat and play board games at the dining table and breakfast bar or spread out to the picnic table on the shared deck. After a fun day together — making sandcastles, splashing in the waves, and suntanning at the beach — retreat to the inviting living room to relax under the ceiling fan with a movie playing on the TV. 

Bedrooms feature beachy vibes, a TV, and a queen-size bed for restful nights at your condo in Gulf Shores, AL. The primary suite even has its own balcony, where you can read, chat with your partner, and sip drinks. There’s a queen sleeper in the living room for additional space plus high speed Wi-Fi to keep everyone connected while at your coastal hideaway. You’ll have a shower/tub combo in the main bathroom for added convenience, and keyless entry means there’s no need to stop at an office. 

For more fun at your Gulf Shores vacation rental, Sand Dollar Condominiums features charcoal grills and an area for picnics plus an outdoor swimming pool where you lounge poolside while the kids swim or take a few dips on a hot summer day. Nearby, you’ll find seafood restaurants, shopping boutiques, and outdoor activities — including dolphin cruises, hiking trails with ocean views in state parks, and sea fishing!
