We are able to be at our condo frequently to check on things. We take great pride in it, especially it's cleanliness. It is very much our home away from home. Your every need will be met when you stay with us. Details make the difference!
You will enjoy the Lighthouse in general. One of the newest condos in Gulf Shores it has many amenities that you will love. Twin pools outdoors make the decision very difficult each day - 'do we go to the beach or stay at the pools?'. The kids will love the zero entry pool that is just inches deep at the shallow end and a foot or two at the 'deep' end. The fountains that shoot high into the air just fascinate the little ones. Then there is the deep pool for serious swimming. There are two heated hot tubs, one at either end of the twin pools. On top of all that there is the indoor, heated pool for days that are a bit chilly or rainy. You won't miss a day of swimming no matter what the weather. There is an indoor fitness center and spa for your health and pleasure. There are three levels of parking for your convenience. Two are under cover to protect you from the elements. All are convenient to the four elevators on site.
From our custom draperies and cornices, to the quality of our mattresses. From our custom built bunk beds, to the quality of our furnishings. Most of our floors are tile. Only our two bedrooms have carpet. We put tile on the wall at the kitchen dining bar to avoid the ugly marks made when shoes mar the wall there. The ceilings are high and the rooms spacious. There are ceiling fans in every room. I'll give you a quick tour of our condo and hope you will like what you read and what you see in our photos.
From the minute you walk into the front door you are drawn to the breathtaking view of the Gulf of Mexico straight in front of you. With floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors you walk there immediately to look out. When you are standing there you notice the size of the balcony. This is no little balcony. It stretches the full width of the condo and extends in front of the master bedroom as well as the living room. There is a table and chairs there for dining as the sun rises or sets. Take your pick - coffee or cocktails! Both views are spectacular! Penthouse views without the penthouse price!!
You will walk past the bunk room as you enter, and you'll notice that it has a door! This is especially nice when you get the kids to bed early. You can close the door, tell them good night and go sit on the balcony or in the living room and enjoy the evening without bothering them. They have their privacy and you have yours!
The foyer is a generous size with room for a table where you can place your keys and your purse when you come in. There is plenty of room for the rolling cart you will bring up from the lobby as you move in and out or bring in groceries and supplies.
The laundry room is just beyond the bunk room on your right. It is huge with full size washer and dryer. It offers plenty of space to store those beach toys, rafts, and other large items. There is an ironing board and iron for your convenience.
The kitchen is next on your right. In it you find granite counter tops and ALL of the things you need and want in a kitchen. We hand picked our dishes, cookware, glasses and utensils. Everything is top quality, coordinated and beautiful. There is a pantry in addition to cabinet space. The refrigerator has an ice maker. We supply many small appliances such as blender, toaster, mixer etc.
There is a dining table that seats four and three more bar stools for casual dining.
The colors should be pointed out also. The decor is beachy without being too 'cute'. The primary colors will make you smile every time you walk in - sunny yellow, bright red and royal blue.
The living area is generous, with a queen sofa bed and comfortable chairs. There are lamps for snuggling into your chair to read. There is a VCR-DVD on the flat screen TV for your viewing pleasure. Each bedroom also has a flat screen TV with DVD player.
The master bedroom is luxurious with it's king-size bed, custom bedding and matching draperies. It connects via a dressing room to the large master bath with a jacuzzi tub and seperate shower stall. The dressing room has double sinks and plenty of drawer and counter space. There is also a huge walk in closet.
The guest room also has a King bed and again custom bedding with matching draperies. The guest bath opens to the guest room and also the hallway. There is a tub/shower combination with a colorful shower curtain that again is custom made.
The Lighthouse is on the property where the old Lighthouse Motel once stood. Many of you will remember seeing this in years gone by. It's literaly a few steps away from The Sea and Suds; a traditional seafood restaurant where you wait or dine 'over the beach'. You and the kids will want to see the all-new Hangout. This is another memory from the past that has been brought back. Oh what fun!! Go north on Highway 59 you will find Lulu’s, owned by Jimmy Buffett’s sister, Lucy Buffett. Jimmy himself shows up from time to time. We are also located just a few miles away from Supermarkets, the Wharf shopping center, movies, Wal-Mart and Target.
