Awaken each morning to the sound of the waves breaking only yards from your condo. Sip your coffee watching the gulls and pelicans as they catch their breakfast from beautiful turquoise waters along sugar white sand beaches. Come back to this relaxing, private balcony in the evening to catch the sunset and sip your favorite drink. Also on this balcony you can sunbathe in private while the children nap inside, or watch people below at the two pools, two hot tubs, or on the beach. One pool is especially for the kids, going from two inches deep at one end to about two feet at the 'deep' end. There are fountains shooting into the air about five feet high that the kids love to run through. The other pool is a shaped lap pool for real swimming. Our balcony is accessible from the living room and the master bedroom through floor to ceiling sliding glass doors. The unobstructed view for literally miles to the east, west and south is truly breathtaking.
The unit itself is extremely well-maintained and spotless. It was decorated with a personal touch with your every need and want in mind. Nothing was forgotten. Your stay will be perfect!
As you enter the condominium a lamp on the foyer table welcomes you. There is a key holder on the wall nearby so you will never be searching for where you laid your keys. There is a high-end KABA keyless entry lock so that you don't have to keep up with condo keys on your vacation. The kitchen, dining room and living room are open and inviting with high ceilings and ceiling fans. There are room darkening draperies at both the master bedroom and living room windows, allowing you total privacy and the luxury of sleeping as late as you would like!
This unit has all of the fancy stuff: tile floors throughout (no carpeting!) granite countertops, DVD players at each of FOUR flat screen TVs, two sinks plus drawers and under-counter storage in the master dressing room, huge jetted tub in master bath, plus a separate shower. There is also a corner cabinet in the master bath for extra storage.
On the telephone you can place free local calls. The Internet connection is wireless, reliable and high speed. There is satellite TV, a stereo/CD player in the entertainment center in the living room, and a queen-size sofa bed. A cute lime green recliner was added in the fall of 2015 and there is a comfortable rocking chair as well.
The kitchen equipment was well thought out. Everything you need and want to prepare that gourmet meal is right at your fingertips. Brand new stainless steel appliances were added in the fall of 2015. There is a coffee maker, four slice, bagel-size toaster, dishwasher, microwave, stove, garbage disposal refrigerator/freezer/ice maker, blender mixer, crock pot, rice cooker, electric teapot, pots and pans, utensils, and dinnerware.
There is a big pantry with plenty of shelves, plus cabinet storage galore. There is a breakfast bar with seating for four. The dining room table is counter height so that the counter height chairs can be interchanged between the breakfast bar and the table. With the leaf in, the table can accommodate eight and there are eight chairs in all. There is even a brand new vacuum cleaner in the laundry room.
There is a large laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer plus a brand new ironing board and iron. There is also storage above the washer and dryer.
The master bedroom features a king-size iron bed with quality linens, NEW (December 2014) Jamison (made in the USA) pillow-top mattress and lots of pillows. The colors are soothing and restful and reflect the colors of the ocean and sand outside your window. There is a ceiling fan and a TV/DVD player housed in an armoire with drawers for storage. Beautiful lamps on each bedside table invite you to crawl into bed to read. Words can not capture the softness of this room. Please scroll down to see all of the pictures.
The guest bedroom features a NEW (December 2014) Jamison, (made in the USA) pillow-top queen-size mattress, colorful bedding with lots of pillows and it's own TV and DVD player housed in an armoire with drawers for storage.
The bunk room is truly private and not just two bunks in a hallway. There is a chest for storage and adorable bedding! Put the kids to bed in a quiet room of their own. And yes, even this bunk room has it's own flat screen TV with DVD player so the kids can enjoy their own DVD's and TV shows.
The bunk room and guest room share a bright and cheerful guest bath which joins the guestroom and opens to the hallway as well.
Remember, all high quality linens are furnished, so all you need to bring is a beach towel or two.
Here is a short list of what you might want to bring:
When you arrive there will be starter sizes of toilet tissue and paper towels, one pod of detergent, a couple of dryer sheets,a pod of dishwasher detergent etc. But you will want to bring or buy full sizes of these things for your stay.
Coffee filters (regular not cone)
Childrens' beach/pool shoes (bottom can be rough)
The Lighthouse is only a couple of miles from the new Wal-Mart, and another mile or so from the new Target and it is adjoining shopping center. The Wharf retail shopping area is not far away either. Both the Wharf and the Target area have multiple movie theatres, restaurants and a variety of shops. Sea 'n Suds traditional seafood restaurant, The Hangout and Gulf State Park Public Pier are all within easy walking distance of The Lighthouse and you do not have to cross any roads to get to any of these. All are located right on the beach just as The Lighthouse is on the beach. Just take a leisurely walk along the beach and you are at any of these locations in minutes.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I grew up going to Gulf Shores when it was still a sleepy little fishing village. My parents would rent the same cottage for the first week in June every year. We would get up before dawn and head to Gulf Shores in our station wagon packed to the top. My sister and I always played the game of who would see the Gulf first. What an exciting childhood I had!! So much of the old Gulf Shores that I loved is still there - crabbing, deep sea fishing, walks on the beach and collecting shells with my parents, riding the waves in the Gulf, looking for sand crabs at night with a flashlight, visiting the souvenir shops. Now there is so much MORE for YOU!! I want you and your family to make Gulf Shores memories too!! When you are staying in our condo I welcome your calls and emails if you have any questions or concerns. I want your vacation to be as close to perfect as possible. If there is something in the condo that needs my attention, especially if it concerns safety or housekeeping please contact me.
Why the Owner Chose Lighthouse Condominiums:
I remember when the original Lighthouse Motel was on the exact spot the Lighthouse Condominium is located now. Yes, there was a huge, non-functioning Lighthouse at that original motel. It was an icon in Gulf Shores! When they tore down the motel to build the Lighthouse Condominium they tried to save the original non-functioning model, but sadly, it fell apart.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I wanted our children and grandchildren to be able to enjoy Gulf Shores as I did as a child. We were fortunate to be able to purchase a condo at the Lighthouse in the pre-construction stage. It is the only condo we own and we take extremely good care of it. I set it up with everything that I wanted for our own convenience and hope that all of these details will make a difference to you, our guests. I update everything at least once each year - new pillows, mattress pads, shower liner, commode brushes, etc. I love for everything to be fresh and clean. I always try to do a major upgrade to at least one thing as well. 2014 brought two new Jamison mattresses for the master and guest room. It also brought new tile floors throughout and a sea-glass back-splash in the kitchen.
