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.
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!
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.
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!!!

My husband and I absolutely LOVE this place! I could actually live there. It's so beautiful and it looks exactly as Janet's pictures and description. Everyone there is very friendly. It's quiet, not a lot of college kids partying, etc.... I didn't want to come home. Will definitely try to come back here! Thanks Janet!

This condo was a wonderful place to stay. The photos are exactly like the real thing. Everything was clean and comfortable. The owner was great to work with and was very responsive. The special touches, like menus of some of the restaurants and books to read while there, were nice. We have made many trips to the beach but I don't think we have ever seen as many dolphins as we did on this trip. That occurred every morning while sitting on the balcony and enjoying coffee. The only thing that would have made this trip any better would have been if we had stayed longer! I will definitely recommend this condo to friends and relatives. We hope to make this September trip a yearly tradition. Thanks so much for sharing your condo with us and for being so nice and helpful!

Thank you Janet for letting us rent your condo!! This condo has everything - beach chairs, umbrellas, fantastic views of the ocean and the pool area. Loved the greenary on both sides of the units. Grounds are well maintained and security staff was AWESOME! What a GREAT place - and the perfect beach get-away. The overall unit is layed out great - loved the split bedrooms for extra privacy. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare meals. Masterbed room was spacious and the bed comfy. Really enjoyed waking up to the wonderful view of sand and surf. The condo is very well located and easy to find. My aunt got to visit with us for a few days and we had a wonderful time taking pictures on the beach and having our toes in the sand. I would rent from this owner again.

Our stay was great. Condo is located in an area close to everything we like. The beach in front was great. No seaweed, great waves for the boys, clear water, and sand just perfect for sitting in a chair and relaxing :-) The condo itself was very clear, well stocked, lots of extras, and super cold air! This was important to us since we were there in July! Great view from the balcony of the fireworks on the 4th that were shot off the pier thats close by.

Spacious Balcony with Gorgeous Views

Just sitting on the balcony, looking at the gorgeous views, watching the waves come in, was very rejuvenating for the soul. The pool was great. The photos of the condo and views were just as shown. The property was clean and very well maintained. We were amazed at how comfortable the beds were. I talked with the owner twice and she was very friendly and helpful. We definitely want to stay here again.

We loved our time in this unit. The location was absolutely perfect for our family of four. We have 2 young kids, so having the pool and beach out the back door couldn't have been better. The unit was well-equipt and clean. The balcony was amazing for enjoying meals or just hanging out. We loved having a keyless entry code for the door, so we didn't have to worry about losing a key at the beach. The week we were there, many units at Surfside Shores were rented to a very large youth group from out of town, so we could have chosen a better week for emptier/calmer time at the pool/beach, but that doesn't reflect on this unit. The grounds were well cared for. We really enjoyed grilling on the bbq grills available next to the beach. The owner was great to work with-organized and trustworthy. We'd definitely stay here again the next time we're in Gulf Shores.

We stayed for the Shrimp Festival and it was a great experience. We had plenty of room and great views. The condo was very beachy decorated and everything you would need in the kitchen. The owner was pleasant to deal with and will rent from them again. Highly recommened...What you see is what you get.

Autumn at the beach is AWESOME!
Autumn at the beach is AWESOME!
Our family had a wonderful time. The view was amazing. Our only regret was not booking more nights. Our older teen girls loved having their own private room and bathroom, and they enjoyed the beach chairs and umbrella (...and the toys :), provided by the owner, immensley. My husband and I splurged on the beach rental chairs w/umbrella one day of our stay and the service was unbeatable. The pool was very nice and we loved the balcony; it was so relaxing, morning, noon or night! The seafood at Desoto's Seafood Kitchen was quite good (we even tried the alligator bites) and the live entertainment and pizza at Papa Rocco's was great. We can't wait to go again. The unit was very comfortable and was just as presented in the photos, and had the best stocked kitchen of any place we have been. The size of the unit was perfect for our family of four. [My husband uses a walker and got around really well in the unit, it wouldn't fit in the bathroom, but the layout of the bathroom was so nice that he didn't need it.]

- Nearest Airport: Penscola, FL at 30 Miles
- Nearest Beach: Gulf Shores at Surfside Shores I & II
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...
