Crystal Tower condo description

Cruise ship or condo? It's hard to tell from the view! Step out on the 20th floor balcony of our Crystal Tower penthouse and take in the magnificent ocean view. Relax in one of the lounge chairs, or enjoy your morning coffee at the outdoor dining table of unit # 2008.

Pool, beach club or ocean? It's hard to make a decision! For a quick dip, you will find the indoor pool, outdoor pool and hot tub adjacent to the lobby. Across the air-conditioned walkway (or the blue tunnel, as it is referred to)you will find the largest pool in Gulf Shores. Drift through the lazy river, or lounge in one of the many chairs provided; restroom facilities and showers are also available.

There is a covered dining area, or if you prefer, a more private upper sundeck. OR, proceed down the wooden walkway to l00' of beautiful white sand. Chairs and umbrellas are available for rent at the end of the walkway, and when your day at the beach is over, come back and enjoy the hot tub.

Dine in or grill out? Regardless of your choice, you will find all the tools and appliances necessary in our well stocked kitchen. We provide the BBQ tools, you provide the charcoal and food. Benches and tables are found at the grilling area making it easy to be the chef you really are!

King, queen or twin? Whatever your choice or need, we provide all three. New this year: New Bedspreads, New Pillows, New Hypoallergenic Pillow Covers. Several renters have commented on how comfortable the beds are, but don't take their word for it, come see for yourself. Either way you can enjoy the great HD TVs, complete with DVD players in every room.

Walk through our front door, see the view and immediately you will see why we refer to a stay here as non-stop relaxation.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: Jim and I had always enjoyed the times we spent in Gulf Shores, and when an opportunity arose for us to purchase a condo , we jumped on it. We have had the most fun decorating and furnishing the place, and even more fun learning the back roads, the favorite local eating places and the best fishing spots. Our friends that have stayed there confirm what we have always felt: once you step in the front door, you never stop relaxing! We invite you to 'come for non-stop relaxation'

              Why the Owner Chose Crystal Tower:
              The amenities in Crystal Tower are superb, and the property is extremely well-maintained. The fact that it was built in 2006 and has the most up to date construction features is another plus. The location is perfect, there is easy load in and out, the pools and hot tubs are some of the nicest we have seen. The on-site management and security is an additional amenity not found at other places.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              There are 3 pools, 1 indoor and 2 outdoor, one of which is the largest pool in Gulf Shores. There are 2 hot tubs, a game room, nicely equipped exercise room, private access to the beach club. The unit itself is family friendly, and extremely quiet. The balconies are extra large, there is a washer/dryer right in the unit, the on-site management is always there to offer assistance.
