Shoalwater condo description

This 4th Floor Unit in the center of the complex is in the perfect location. Just high enough so that you don't get a lot of noise from the pool areas during the day, but low enough that you can leave the bedroom sliding patio door open at night and listen to the waves crashing all night long. Very Relaxing! Shoalwater is unique in that the units are staggered instead of side by side. There is a great view down the beach in both directions instead of just looking straight out at the water. If you had a good arm you could throw a rock to the surf. Another good thing about Shoalwater - It is two floors shorter than all the adjoining buildings which means fewer guests, less crowding at the pool, beach and parking lot.

The Master Bedroom has a King Bed. The second bedroom has a Queen Bed and third bedroom has two Twin Beds (kids love this room). The Sleeper Sofa in the Living Room is also a Queen Bed (linens and pillows are provided for this bed). Flat Screen TV's and DVD Players in every Bedroom and in the Living Room. Living Room also has a Stereo/CD Player with an i-pod jack. Master Bedroom has a bedside stereo with and i-pod dock. Newly Remodeled Unit with Granite Kitchen Countertops and Stainless Steel Appliances. The dining table seats 6 with additional seating for 4 at the bar. The entire unit has just been redecorated including new ceramic tile floors in all the common areas.

Orange Beach has the most beautiful beach on the gulf. If you get tired of the beach move to the beautiful outside pool area or take the kids to the neat Kiddie Pool. For your convenience private restrooms are beside the Kiddie Pool. If the weather happens to cloud up or turn cool in the winter just move inside to the Indoor Heated Pool and Hot Tub. This indoor area also has a Dry Sauna and an Excercise Room. If you are a sports buff try the lighted tennis or basketball court.

Shoalwater is just a few blocks from Orange Beach's three supermarkets and a Rite-Aid and CVS drug store. Adventure Island is just across the street which is a big hit with the kids. It is an Arcade, Go Kart Track, Miniature Golf, Laser Tag and much more. If you have unexpected guests, the Holiday Inn Express is just next door. In the summer the Holiday Inn Express also has an outdoor snack bar with hot dogs, hamburgers and frozen drinks (The only ones on the beach). Souvenir City is just one door down if you need a new bathing suit or forgot your sandals or a beach towel. There are an endless number of fine restaurants in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores but one favorite, Bubba's Seafood, is just across the street.

If you are a golfer, the area is located on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail and there are several championship courses nearby. The fishing boats in the Orange Beach Fishing Fleet are located at one of the many great marinas (which all have great restaurants). There are many wonderful fishing boats in Orange Beach and their catch is unrivaled on the Gulf of Mexico. Back Bay fishing is also available if you'd rather fish for redfish and speckled trout. Orange Beach is home to the Annual Red Snapper Tournament.

Orange Beach is famous for its sunny days but if you happen to encounter a passing rainshower just head north a few miles to Foley. The Tanger Outlet Mall sports nearly 150 stores and a food court. Just a few of the outlet stores you'll want to visit are Polo, Ann Taylor, Old Navy, Tommy Hilfiger, White House - Black Market, Aeropostale, American Eagle and Brooks Brothers. Take advantage of the No-Tax Weekend just before school starts.

Our family vacationed in Destin for many years. 18 years ago we decided that we couldn't take the crowded streets and long restaurant lines any longer. We started looking for another beach destination and found Orange Beach. We haven't regretted it for one minute and decided to buy a condo here in 1999. OB is a great place to relax!!!

If you feel a party coming on just head east down the beach for a few miles to the Florida state line. There you will find the iconic roadhouse 'The Flora-Bama Club'. This world famous club is on the beach and has live music every night. 'What happens at Flora-Bama stays at Flora-Bama'.

All in all you won't find a better place for your vacation than Orange Beach and you won't find a nicer and more convenient condo than this one. If you ever give it a try you'll be coming back.

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About: Our family is in the retail grocery business. To us it is the people pleasing business so we try to equip our unit with everything your family will need. We are 9 hours away from Orange Beach so we don't get to go as often as we'd like. When we do get to our condo we want a hassle free experience. We want the same thing for our guests.

              Why Shoalwater:
              Gulf Shores Airport (KJKA) is close by and has excellent services. The 7,000 foot runway will accomodate most planes and the airport has several instrument approaches including an ILS. Orange Beach is only 33 miles from Pensacola Regional Airport (PNS) and 70 miles from Mobile Regional Airport (MOB). Both airports have several commercial airlines serving them. There are 3 theme parks, a water park and several miniature golf courses in the area.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Beach Chair and Umbrella Rentals are available Daily.
