LOCATED ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE BEACH WITH A BEAUTIFUL PANORAMIC VIEW OF THE GULF FROM A PRIVATE BALCONY.
The total adult occupancy is 6, 2 adults preferred due to the condo size, and small children under the age of 12. More than this would be uncomfortable.
You will enjoy this chic and cozy, comfortable, non-smoking, no pets condo...it is a great get-a-way! It is ACROSS THE STREET from the beach with public access as well as access to a next door State Park boat launch. The State Park beach across the street has a large parking area, facilities and showers.
The condo is furnished with a queen bed in the bedroom, bunk beds tucked in the hallway for children under 12. Located on the second floor on the West corner, it gives an expansive view of the Gulf seen from the large private corner balcony and from the dining and living area.
Cotton Bayou is in the back of the complex with public boat launching, fishing piers and boat/trailor parking. It leads directly to the Perdido Pass Bridge then out to the open Gulf. Bring your fishing gear, obtain a fishing license for some good fishing at this location!
A paved hiking/biking trail starts at the condo and treks alongside the Bayou.
Search 'Orange Beach Attractions' and also 'Gulf Shores Attractions' to see all the great things to see and do nearby.
With all the special amenities, charming condo, cool pool and relaxing, adventurous things to do, memories of your getaway at the SWEET BEACH RETREAT will be cherished for a very long time.
I look forward to having you and your family as my special guests! Get the sand between your toes and feel the salty breeze!

nicely decorated condo
nicely decorated condo
We enjoyed the view of the ocean early in the am..however, once traffic begins your semi-quiet coffee time becomes a noisey travel time. The bedroom is located in the back of the condo so the noise never bothered us. It was still chilly when we traveled in early April so the pool (wasn't heated) was too cold for us to use. The condo provided everything needed for your stay and more. Owner was very accommodating and kept us up to date on any issues with the condo. This condo is for sale and there are brochures in the condo indicating that. Overall a decent trip which would be okay for early risers and maybe an older couple not looking for a lot of amenities in the complex itself. The price was okay. We wouldn't go back only because of the noise level. Our trip was to search the area for housing and enjoy the beach views.

Owner response: I get a lot of joy making Sweet Beach Retreat a special beach vacation home. I have updated it recently with new bright beach inspired colors, a new sleeper/sofa, a new washing machine, new flat screen TVs in the living area and bedroom. I make sure there is fresh like new linens and fluffy pillows. I especially like providing a pretty comforter with matching shams in the bright colored bedroom. It is a lot of fun decorating my condo. I seek out nice oil paintings and unique wall décor, like the two large aqua seahorses on each side of a large upscale mirror in the dining area. They were too cute to pass up! I have repeat renters who look forward to coming each year and I can't wait for them to see the new look. I had wonderful compliments before and know they will really love the new look. If the street noise gets bothersome, they close the heavy sliding glass doors that lead to the balcony which helps. I began renting my condo in '07 and have had many nice renters whom I thoroughly appreciate. It is my joy and pleasure to welcome them back as well as first timers. By the way, repeat renters get a discount!
Really is a "Sweet Retreat". View is one of the best on the beach highway. Furniture is stylish and comfortable. Condo is equipped with at least one of everything you will need including a superior bar-b-que set. Walking distance to shopping and dining as well as just across the street from the beach. I WILL stay again. Jackie is a great host and has a wonderful property.

Owner response: It is so rewarding to have guests who enjoy their stay at "Sweet Retreat" and leave with great memories! I appreciate the nice comments and wish for you a long and happy future together! It is always my pleasure and hope that Sweet Retreat meets all the needs of my gueats for a special beach retreat. Plus, Orange Beach is a great place for fun activities, beautiful white sandy beaches, shopping and nice restaurants. Coming to the Orange Beach is always enjoyable!
This condo is looks exactly like it does in the pictures! It was just perfect for the 2 of us, but plenty room for another couple to share. Already talking about when we can go back! Thanks Ms Jackie!

Owner response: It is my goal to provide the best possible condo for my guests. My cleaning lady is the best. She will not let even one crumb be left on the floor! I have recently painted it with bright beachy colors, pretty wall decor and a beautiful sleeper/sofa with bright colors, little fishes and other beach items. I make myself available to my guests during their stay so they will feel someone is there if needed.
My husband and I stayed a week at the Sweet Beach Retreat and loved it! I loved the fresh beach colors, and the "sea" themed decor. It was spotlessly clean and we appreciated the well-stocked kitchen utensils & cute dishes. We sat on the balcony a lot and enjoyed the ocean view. We tended to drive to the beach, as crossing the highway on foot was a challenge, but that just gave us a convenient way to have ice cream every day! We liked having the undercover parking, too. My husband is an avid cyclist and the Back Country Trail was a nice surprise. I enjoyed walking the trails, as well. We live in Iowa, but had family reasons to be in Alabama. We don't know when we'll be back, so we will cherish the memory of this trip to the Gulf!

Owner response: This is just the reason I do my best to make Sweet Retreat a special place for my guests at the beach! I appreciate so much the wonderful rating. I hope you come back soon! Life is so good at the beach!
My wife and I had a great time staying at your condo we arrived on my birthday, which was a perfect start for another year. It was very clean and spacious for the two of us and the view from the balcony was great. It was stocked with everything that we needed during our stay. It was a short drive to some great restaurants and nightspots and loads of beautiful beaches. We would definitely stay at this condo again and have recommended it to several of our friends already. Also finally talked my wife in to going para-sailing and sailing with me. She loved them both, but she really had a great time doing a sunset sail on the 4th of July. So next time down we may spend more time on the water than on the beaches. Thanks again

Owner response: It always thrills me when my renters give me such a wonderful review! It reflects how much I care about providing a clean, beautiful and comfortable place for thier visit. I am always available for any questions or concerns. I truly appreciate having renters who also care about the condo and treat it as their own.
We had such a good time

We loved you condo! It was in a great location and very clean. It had everything we needed and just enough room for our family. The beaches were not as bad as I had thought they would be. We didn't have much time to swim and play since we were playing baseball. But the kids did make time to crab hunt on the beach and swim in the pool. For anyone who might be thinking of backing out on the trip to Orange Beach DON'T! The beach really wasn't that bad and the locals need our support! Thank you for letting us stay in your condo!

Owner response: My passion is for renters at Sweet Beach Retreat to have a wonderful stay. I provide reasonable rates, a nice and clean condo with up-to-date furnishings, convenient access to the beach as well as a great view of the Gulf from the private balcony. I own and operate it myself so I can provide personal attention with 24/7 access to me. I want renters to be happy and have memories of it for years to come. The ones who have rented since May have told me they enjoyed their stay in spite of the reported problems with the beach and water. Potential renters for Orange Beach and Gulf Shores need to know they can still have a great vacation. This area is still a wonderful God given gift to us. Come to the beach!
Condo is cute and extremely clean.(I am very picky about this!)My kids really loved sleeping in the bunkbeds and enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching all the cars go by.The kitchen had everything we needed including dishwashing detergent and dish soap. Loved the fact the boat launch was in the back of the condos and we could park a jet ski on premises.(This is hard to find!)Ms. Jackie is very easy to work with and takes great pride in the condo. You can tell as soon as you walk in. Would definently recommend this to anyone looking for a "sweet retreat". Thank you for allowing us to stay at your great condo.

Owner response: Thank you so much! I appreciate you and your sweet family and was happy to have you! You took very good care of the condo, leaving very little to do regarding cleaning. Welcome back anytime! I will definitely give you a repeat renter's discount!
We enjoyed our stay in sweet retreat very much. It was clean, well equipped and everything Jackie said it would be. It's just across the road from the best beach in Orange beach. We walked to the beach every day. We will definitely use the condo again. Thanks again Jackie, Jesse
