Tidewater condo description

When you want it all, you can get it all at Tidewater Condominiums. Located in the middle of upscale Orange Beach, Tidewater offers you all the amenities that you could ask for in a setting that is incomparable.

Not only are the broad white sandy beaches and emerald green waters breathtaking, there are so many amenities that you may have to extend your stay to use them all. If you are interested in fishing in the Gulf, please see link below for fishing pictures from our family in 2010.

Tidewater features a large outdoor pool, an indoor heated pool, a hot tub, a fitness center facing the Gulf, a sauna, and a grilling/picnic area.

We offer a beautifully decorated 1 bedroom, 1 bath unit. with 9 foot ceilings which, of course, has a direct Gulf Front 175 degree view (see photo). We are on the 3rd floor. There is plenty of space between condos in this upscale area of Orange Beach. This third floor (actually 4 stories up) unit has the feel of an elegant Caribbean beach cottage. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with a new mattress and the living room has a queen-size sofa sleeper also with pillow top added.

HOW DO YOU DETERMINE A GREAT CONDO? CHECK OUT THE UNIT'S GUEST BOOK AND REVIEWS. SEE WHAT GUESTS SAY. In addition to on-line reviews, we publish the guest book reviews/comments. As a recent guest told us on the phone, 'there is much to say about dealing directly with the owner who really cares about their condo and their guests'.

An added extra is a bunk area with 2 bunk beds perfect for the children and we get reports from guests that the children are crazy about the bunks. This condo comfortably sleeps up to four adults and 2 children guests. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a full size washer and dryer in a utility closet.

Tidewater Condominiums are located in the heart of Orange Beach just minutes from Gulf Shores and Perdido Key. It is located 1/2 mile from the Perdido Pass Bridge. Largest marina in Orange beach with three eateries directly across the street.

Also close by are exceptional golf courses, fishing, and of course, fantastic shopping. Be sure to check out the links mentioned for golf information. This condo will truly make a wonderful vacation destination for a family or a romantic get-away for a couple.

During the spring & summer and early fall, from the balcony, watching the moon come up over the Gulf is breathtaking. During the fall and winter, the sunrises and sunsets are very beautiful. Coffee on the balcony at 7:00 AM makes the trip worthwhile. You will never forget the sight.

                            We were so impressed with our condo. The decor, the grounds, the security and the uncrowded white sandy beach. We went to a few restaurants, but mainly stayed at the condo for our meals. The condo had everything we needed to prepare our meals. The location of the condo is so convenient to the grocery store, shopping and many restaurant venues. Loved watching the dolphins and the sunrises and sunsets. We were so impressed that we have already booked for next year. Last but not least the owners are teriffic to work with !!!!!

                            The condo was exactly as described, attractive, clean and well appointed. It was our 50TH wedding anniversary trip and our first trip to the beach. Though the weather was unseasonably cool (40 to 50 degrees) we adapted and had a wonderful time. The view was fantastic. One thing I liked about vrbo is that no one comes in your room while you are out and you don't feel you have to protect your valuables. I would recommend this condo and the owner's cooperation was perfect.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: We are Kathy and Andy Schaus of Little Rock, Arkansas. We stay at our condos 3-5 times a year doing maintenance, some shopping, some fishing and just sitting on the beach and always having coffee early morning on the balcony watching the ocean.

                          Why the Owner Chose Tidewater:
                          Tidewater is one of the smaller condo complexes so short wait for elevators and never a crowded pool outdoors and plenty of room on the beach. We also like the elbow room between condos at Tidewater. Staff and security are very friendly. We had to have an indoor heated swimming pool as we normally go in the off-season. Quote from a recent guest: 'The building was extremely clean and well-kept. There was absolutely no problem with noise, and the property was well supervised.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Our condo association has a keen interest in making Tidewater a clean and safe property. Owners have pride. Say 'hi' to Kenya, from our maintenance staff. As owners, sand in the condo can be very upsetting and plug drains. There are two high pressure fresh water hoses near the entry gate back to the condo which washes off the sand from feet and toys you may take to the beach.
