Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My wife Katie and I live in the Atlanta area and own this one property as a vacation getaway. We rent it as a way to help pay the mortgage and afford the property. We have a couple friends that migrated down to the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach area that kept inviting us to visit. We love the quiet, comfortable atmosphere of the area and of course the clean, sugar white sand beaches. When we visit, we hate to leave. We always look forward to the next trip. We finally took the big step in 2006 to have our own place on the beach. Our goal is to have our place feel like home, only better. We wanted a resort feel and top quality furnishings along with a gourmet kitchen. When you walk into our ninth floor unit, we hope you will be pleased and enjoy your surroundings. If you smile and feel good as you look around, we have done our job. If you have any suggestions how we can make your stay more satisfying, please let us know. We are not a faceless company and we do not own any other rentals, so we can respond to your needs and make our condo the best on the beach. All we ask is that you treat our place as you would your own. Thanks, Bill & Katie

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There is so much to see and do, including just relaxing on the sugar white sands. We always enjoy the fresh seafood while at the beach. There are numerous great places for good eats to fit every appetite and budget. It is a short drive to anything you need such as outlet mall shopping, charter fishing boats, golf courses, airports, a water park and amusement park, historical sites, museums, home of the Navy Blue Angels, live entertainment, and of course the beach is right outside your door.
