Property description

Our family's home away from home is on the second floor corner. It's decorated in bright and cheerful colors depicting scenes of New Orleans and the beach. Imagine yourself lying on the daybed in an enclosed porch watching the surf roll in. Or sit at the table in one of the comfy chairs and check out the activities at the pool. Either way, you're bound to feel totally relaxed. Breakfasts on the porch are a wonderful way to start the day. Watch the dolphins take their daily 'stroll' eastward. Or get out and take a stroll yourself. Alabama beaches are known for their fine sand, and mornings are the best times to search for shells or cast a line into the Gulf. Whether from the pool deck or your private porch, sunrises and sunsets are nothing less than spectacular. Even the oil rigs all lit up at night are interesting to look at.

Good restaurants with fresh seafood are minutes away. Some deliver. The Tanger Mall in Foley is a shoppers paradise; The Target shopping center features well-known shops. It's also fun to hit the boutiques and gift shops. Golfers can take their pick of courses. Hang-gliding, deep-sea fishing, playing miniature golf, driving bumper cars, fishing from the pier or surf-side . . . Whatever your interest, I guarantee you'll find it. As for our corner unit, you're going to love it!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband, Jack, and I are retirees. We started renting our unit after I lost my legs 8+ years ago. We still go to the condo twice a year and our adult children enjoy it, but for me, it's not the same due to the fact that my wheelchair can't run on sand. However, I still enjoy the view and going out to eat fresh seafood.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Tower:
We'd been renting other properties every year for a long time and finally decided to buy a place of our own. We were redecorating in Sept of 2004 when we were told to evacuate due to Hurricane Ivan heading our way. We came home to north Alabama to wait it out ... it was a 6-week wait before we knew our bldg. had survived a direct hit. We lost our pool, parking garage, parking lot and most of the beach, but after a lot of work and $$$ everything finally got back to normal. Others weren't so lucky .... Gulf state lodge was completely gutted as were hundreds of other condos. We considered ourselves very lucky. Our unit was intact.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The view is outstanding. And the location is perfect . . . close to hwy. 59 where everything can be found. The Hangout is 1.6 miles away.
