Escapes to the Shores condo description

This 2 bedroom/2 bath high end unit in Escapes! To The Shores (one of the newest and most sought after complexes on the Gulf Coast) offers many top notch amenities including outdoor pool, indoor heated pool, kiddy pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room, spa, exercise room, activity center, covered parking garage, covered entry from your car all the way to the unit, lighted boardwalk, a gazebo, an outdoor fireplace, and Viking stainless steel gas BBQ pits. The building is directly on the beach overlooking the sparkling waters of Orange Beach and the Gulf of Mexico.

The condo itself has many extras that you don't commonly find in other rental units. We have a decked out kitchen with all of the power appliances you would need to cook even a Holiday meal, plenty of fluffy towels (including beach towels), DVD libraries for kids and parents, wireless internet, separate showers and jetted tubs in both bathrooms, and much more.

Well-situated near restaurants, shopping centers, entertainment, and other activities this coveted Orange Beach condominium is an ideal place for your next sun laden excursion.

We hope you enjoy your vacation, wherever you may decide to stay.

In 2011 Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, Alabama was the only beach area along the whole of the Gulf Coast to receive multiple five star ratings (only 14 locations in the United States were given this stamp of quality) from the Natural Resources Defense Council. **Update for 2013: The 2012 report is out and once again Gulf Shores/Orange Beach was the only area along the Gulf Coast to receive a 5 star rating. Only 11 other beaches in the United States received this distinction.

(Parking & Pool Passes are good throughout your stay.)

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: We're just a simple New Orleans family with kids and thoroughly enjoy vacationing in Orange Beach, Alabama.

              Why the Owner Chose Escapes to the Shores:
              The Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area located on the southern shores of Alabama is a great place to vacation. Not too far a drive from many states, it is very clean and has a good balance of people (not overly crowded), great food, multiple types of entertainment (theme parks, golf, parasailing, fishing, etc.), and don't forget the warm sun, white sands and pounding surf. As for the complex, Escapes! to the Shores is one of the best and newest condominiums in Gulf Shores. The amenities are second to none. It's right on the beach in the heart of Orange Beach with Gulf Shores just 4 miles to the west and Perdido Key, Florida 6 miles to the east.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              We have a number of extras not commonly found in most condos. There are jetted tubs with separate glassed showers in both bathrooms (the master bath has side sprayers), large flat screens/DVD players in den/bedrooms, 2 movie libraries (one for kids), Wii game console (and games), wireless internet, washer/dryer, and a kitchen which includes blender, mini-chopper, food processor, coffee maker, toaster, cookbooks, and even a bread maker.
