Surfside Shores I & II condo description

OVERVIEW
Do you want an affordable Gulf front vacation with great amenities at low prices? Our Condo is for you! This two bedroom unit is priced as low as many one bedrooms. It's like you get the second bedroom and bath free! We strive to keep our rates some of the lowest in the building.

This direct beachfront two bedroom, two bath unit gives you front row seats on the beach and Gulf. There is NOTHING but a pool between you and the water... Dig your toes into the sugar white sand and relax, or play in the heated oceanfront pool! Watch the sunrise without getting out of the king sized bed in your oceanfront master suite.

CONDO
Perfect for families and affordable for couples, our unit is loaded with extras to make your stay enjoyable. My husband and I have two children so we know how to make a place 'kid friendly'. We have put a lot of thought into setting up the Condo and have three flatscreen TV's, DVD players, stereo, Xbox with games, DVD library, board games, books, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and sand toys there for you to use. You don’t need to drag all that stuff with you from home! We even have a pack-n-play and a portable high chair for the little ones…

The master bedroom has a King bed with French doors opening onto the balcony. There is a wall mounted flat screen TV and a large closet. Your bath has the sink/dressing area separated from the shower, so it feels like having an extra half bath. The second bedroom has a Queen bed, another flatscreen TV and another full bath.

The spacious main living area has another flat screen TV, comfortable seating, and amazing gulf views. The tiled balcony is huge and adds another 180 square feet (8X22) of space to spread out. Have dinner on the outside table, or relax on the loungers and watch for dolphins.

Of course there is also a fully equipped kitchen. A frig, dishwasher, microwave, brand new stove, washer/dryer, blender, toaster, coffeemaker, pots, pans, dishes, etc... If I have it in my kitchen at home, it is there at the condo too!

We are constantly updating the unit and this year added a new washer/dryer, new sleeper sofa, and lots of other little extras for you!

BUILDING
The building has free WIFI, an elevator, two large pools (one heated year round), two kiddie pools, luggage carts in the lobby, and on-site security.

AREA
If you aren't familiar with Gulf Shores, it is an awesome location. We have a little library of guidebooks and area information in the Condo for you to use. And since we lived in the area for 5 years and visit often, I will be happy to share my area knowledge and spend time talking with you and helping to plan your trip. You can golf, shop, parasail, bike and hike in the state park, eat at great restaurants, take a day trip to the Blue Angel Museum in Pensacola or the Battleship Alabama in Mobile (getting tired yet?) Or you can hang out on the beach all day, and have pizza delivered in at night. The choice is yours!

The mild temperatures in the off season, heated pool, and wealth of area attractions make our condo a great vacation spot year round. Come and stay at our place!!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My husband, two children and I lived in Daphne Alabama for 5 years. While there, we purchased a one Bedroom Condo in Orange Beach, which we still own, Career shifted us away from the beach, but we still come down several times a year. As the children have gotten older, (and bigger!) we decided to invest in a two bedroom unit as well. So even though our Surfside Shores rental is newer to the market, I have been doing my own property management for 10 years now. I manage the rentals myself, allowing me to keep costs low. But we still have a great housekeeper and maintenance company right there to take care of things for you quickly. Our Orange Beach Condo has developed a loyal following of repeat renters, and we hope to build up our Gulf Shores rentals with the same great service and low prices.

Why the Owner Chose Surfside Shores I & II:
We love the beach! Orange Beach and Gulf Shores are every bit as beautiful as pricier Florida destinations. One day we will be back full time!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I love dolphin watching from the balcony, and usually manage to see some each trip. I am also an amatuer photographer and you will find me on the beach at sunrise and sunset capturing the view...
