Location location location

We have stayed at Ocean Reef since 1991 Took a few years off d/t young adult children leaving or deployed. However, now w grands it's perfect. Beach to condo w/o ever loosing sight of them No elevators!! And it has a magic pool. Everyone who enters, learns to swim. All the kids! We travel w a large group of family and friends ( think 20+ kids and at least 14+ adults-several units) The original group of children are now the new parents and the original parents are now the grands. So ocean reef has been a constant for two generations. It is small low key w/o a lot of bells or whistles, but the location makes it perfect. 10/10 highly recommended. However if luxury is your gig, move on. It's functional, clean, convenient. - (Jul 2020 - VRBO)


Great Location

Ocean Reef is the perfect location. The unit was clean. The building is a little older but the kitchen was updated and the extra bathroom upstairs was a nice addition. We had a little trouble keeping the 3rd floor cool without freezing folks on lower floors. But the kids like it warmer and were up there so it wasn't a big deal. Overall, the unit served out needs well and we would definitely stay again. - (Jun 2020 - VRBO)


Good place, but a few minor inconveniences

We have stayed at this property before, but different unit. We loved it...hence the second visit. Location is good for us... walk with kids to The Hangout...right on the beach...has a pool. However, this unit was musty. In the second bedroom, we had to sleep with window open bc it was so bad. Also, we like to cook and while the kitchen was Really nice and recently updated, it was lacking some basics like a baking sheet, scissors, blender (c'mon it's the beach...blender drinks) etc. While the check in process wasn't difficult, it was a bit inconvenient in that you had to physically go pick up the keys from the office. The office wasn't far, but with traffic and all, it was not convenient. In this case it worked out perfectly that after a long drive, we were sent an email that the unit was ready (it was ready early...thank you) right as we were passing by the office so we pulled right in and picked up keys before heading to a late lunch. So, we didn't have to back track, but if we had been earlier, it would have been a pain. I understand and respect the check-in time, but just think keyless entry is much more accommodating. You don't have to send me the code until check-in if it's not availability. Finally, we had two cars. We were only given one parking pass. No mention was made of having to purchase a second pass. So after getting a "Tow" notice, we had to stop, call the office and were told we'd have to go back to the main office to purchase another one for $20. We were ultimately able to buy one from the onsite security guard. Also, this probably my fault, but when I book on VRBO (As I frequently do) , I consider it a done deal. However, this time, the day before traveling, I received an email in my Junk mailbox that I hadn't completed payment. That's when I realized I was dealing with a rental company and not a person/owner. Again, this is my fault, but it could've caused a delay in our plans as I had to sign a contract and email it back along with a drivers license. Overall, minor inconveniences (except for the smell), but not as turnkey as other experiences. We liked the unit and would consider staying again if smell was taken care of now that we know what to expect. - (May 2020 - VRBO)


Family Beach Getaway

This was the perfect location for a family getaway. The townhouse is directly on the beach which is nice considering it's surrounded by highrises. Being on the beach allowed for us to come and go as we pleased without having the hassle of going up and down flights of stairs or elevators. We had 8 in our party and we were all comfortable the entire time with plenty of room to spread out. The property was well stocked. We have already recommended to other family and friends and will be back the next time we come to Gulf Shores. - (May 2020 - VRBO)


The location was excellent and the view was great

Loved being able to walk off deck to beach - (Sep 2019 - VRBO)


Excellent location- just step off deck to the sandy beach

We love to stay at this condo. Great location to everything. We keep going back year after year. Condo does need some updates. King matress is new. The other 2 bedrooms need new mattresses. The deck needs to be replaced. The patio doors need replaced. Other than that, it's great. We have already booked for next year. - (Oct 2017 - Flipkey)



Location is great. The only problem with the condo is the mattresses on the 3rd level. You can feel the springs! In looking at reviews, it seems this is a complaint for a lot of folks. Perhaps owners will replace or least place toppers on the beds

It's our goal to consistently deliver the best vacation rentals, in prime locations, at a fair rate. We look forward to your upcoming stay to deliver a proper 5-star experience." - (Sep 2017 - Flipkey)


Perfect Location

Nice location and everything we needed was there, ready for us. Only complain we had were the beds and stairs. The mattresses need replaced, and the stairs became a chore, especially when unloading our luggage. Otherwise, the place is nice. Loved the view and being able to have our doors open and hear the ocean breeze. - (Feb 2017 - Flipkey)


Another Great Stay!!!!

Another great stay at Ocean Reef! We brought the grandparents with us this time and they are hooked!! We will see you all again soon! - (Dec 2016)


Loved Ocean Reef

Loved our stay here. Booking again for next year. We stay here because it is right on the beach. Walk right off the deck and you are on the beach. Great because it it 3 bedrooms & 3 1/2 baths - (Sep 2016 - Flipkey)


Another Great Vacation

Another great Gulf Shores vacation for the record books. We saw so much wildlife this year! We will be back soon! We have stayed in a number of the Ocean Reef Condos and would recommend them all. - (Oct 2014)



This is a nice townhouse with beautiful ocean view, convenient to the ocean, food and shopping. There were a few minor issues. We could not go barefoot on the deck. We were all digging splinters out of our feet. The second floor bathroom - the grout is crumbling and the shower door needs caulked. During a storm, the patio door leaked and the ceiling leaked (not through a vent) on a person who chose to sleep on the couch. Please do not take this as anything except constructive criticism These are minor things that did not hinder our stay or enjoymen - (Oct 2014)

Our stay

Our stay couldn't have been any better. The Ocean Reef met all of our needs. It was a perfect family vacation! Our unit had everything we needed and couldn't have asked for a better fit for our family! We will be booking for next summer as soon as we can confirm vacation dates. See ya next summer!!! - (Jul 2014)
