Property description

This third floor beachfront condo, decorated with an emphasis on comfort, is just steps from the pool and the beach! We just repainted the whole place in a relaxing shade of blue and the new, leather sofa adds a nice touch of luxury to go along with the laid back feel of the recliners in both the living room as well as on the sun porch.

Imagine yourself lounging on your recliner having your morning coffee on the enclosed sun porch by the Gulf of Mexico. Catch the spirit of a tropical retreat as you rejuvenate while sipping your favorite drink, watching the sun disappear into the water.

The colorful décor of your oceanfront condo, from the Italian tile in the living area to the relaxing recliners on the sun porch, is designed around the ideas of comfort, enjoyment and building memories that will last a lifetime. All of our guests continue to rave about how their every need was met, from the beach chairs, colorful umbrellas, and children’s sand toys in the renter’s closet to the seafood boiling pots, pizza pans and oyster knife in the kitchen.

Drift off to sleep to the scent of ocean breezes and the sound of waves caressing the white sand beach. Sleep late, or just open your eyes to enjoy a spectacular sunrise from the comfort of your beachfront bedroom. Enjoy a week when your most pressing decision is choosing between the beach and the pool.

While your condo comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, know that award winning restaurants with delectable cuisines but forgettable prices are just a short drive or even a romantic stroll down the beach. Don’t worry about missing the big game, your favorite show or the latest movie. There are large TV’s and DVD players in each bedroom. Or better yet, borrow a book from our library and enjoy a good read on the beach. If we don’t have what you need, let us know; and we will do all we can to make your visit so memorable that it will become a family tradition.

Welcome to our Gulf Towers family where MAGIC is a place, and it can be yours in Gulf Shores! You cannot believe the view from our condo. Ask for more great photos and with a click, you will be standing in the Gulf coast surf! Call today!

Location

A family oriented beach town with all the amenities: restaurants, shopping, historical sights, night life, golf and fishing...and of course the beach. Short drives take you to Mobile, artistic Fairhope, Biloxi and the Florida line is just a few miles away (but there is no reason to go to Florida as you have a better beach just out your front door!)

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Hello fellow beach lovers! We are Frank and Anna Arnold, a couple of retired teachers who live outside of Atlanta, Georgia. We have been married for 40 years now, and we have spent as much of that time at the beach as we could manage. When we were able to swing a deal to buy a place on the Gulf of Mexico, we thought it would be great to be able to share our little slice of heaven with others so that you too could enjoy our favorite beach. That, and we need the rental income. We're retired teachers, not bankers! Our goal is to provide a comfortable place for our guests where you can relax and enjoy your hard-earned vacation at the beach! We have tried to provide for every need, but we are eager to supply anything we may have overlooked or solve any problem that may arise. Your job is to just relax, play on the beach and enjoy!

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Tower:
The Gulf Tower is the best built structure on the beach. We have just about the largest and nicest pool on West Beach and it is really 'on the beach'! You can't get any closer to the waves than when you stay at The Gulf Tower!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This is one of the few places on the beach where you don't have to sit in some hard plastic or droopy folding chair to relax and watch the waves roll in. Out unique sun porch lets you enjoy a fantastic beach view while resting your tooshes in comfortable recliners!
