Emerald Skye condo description

Newly remodeled condo on the ground floor where you can enjoy the largest covered balcony in the complex that directly overlooks the Gulf of Mexico!

Quiet and relaxing. At this cheerful and tropical Romantic Grotto by the Sea, the beach is at your balcony and the pool is at your back door. Pool is heated in the cooler months.
This ground floor unit offers you the convenience of not having to use stairs or wait on the elevator. Although it's ground floor, it is elevated significantly from beach level, so the views are fantastic! The boardwalk that will lead you to the sugary white sandy beach is just steps away.

Emerald Skye is a low density complex with only 37 units, which means a less crowded beach ... and that makes your vacation quiet, luxurious and as private as possible. Leave the stressful life behind when you kick back at this magical condominium.

Please note: Although you CAN cram 6 people into this condo, it is very small and it only has one bathroom. So, it is much better suited for a maximum of 4 people. Plus, the interior seating really only accommodates 4 people ... and that's crowded. I just don't want anyone to feel cramped and uncomfortable.
ALSO PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT RENT TO ANYONE UNDER 25. This means that anyone under 25 is not allowed to stay in this condo without an older adult chaperone.

          Location

          Orange Beach is an upscale community with numerous fine dining restaurants, boutique shopping, great waterway bistros and a nice collection of casual dining options. Orange Beach is newer than many other places on the Gulf Coast and it holds an air of sophistication not often found in other Gulf Coast communities in this vicinity.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About the owner: Baton Rouge native, Julee, sipping a celebratory glass of champagne on the balcony after purchasing the wonderful condo!

          Why the Owner Chose Emerald Skye:
          For years, I have wanted to have a vacation property on the Alabama Gulf Coast. It's an easy drive from my home and the beaches and ocean are gorgeous. I chose Emerald Skye because it is a low density complex and is less crowded. What sold me on the unit I purchased is the huge balcony/patio.

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          It is a ground floor unit, so there is no need to climb stairs or wait on the elevator - so convenient! I just updated the condo with ceramic tile and tropical colors. It is cheerful. The balcony/patio is 3 times the size of any of the other balconies in the complex. It has comfortable furnishings outside and inside. Emerald Skye is almost directly across the street from a big grocery store and lots of other shopping, so there is no need to drive for miles to get something you need for your stay. The restaurants in Orange Beach are superb.
