Portside condo description
Orange Beach is a dream paradise for BEACH LOVERS and DEEP-SEA FISHING. The beach has the whitest sand, ocean blue water, and mild gentle waves that allows little ones to play in the ocean. Deep-sea fishing, Bay fishing, and fishing in Ole River attracts thousands of fisherman each year.
Portside is located directly across the road from the most beautiful beach/ocean (Gulf of Mexico) in the world. My husband and I have traveled to many places over the years; Maui, Aruba, Bahamas, Cancun, Jamacia, Costa Rica, Cabo San Lucas, many FL beaches, and we agree this is the BEST beach in the world. Oh, my favorite beach activity is looking for sea shells with my grandsons. We have filled large glass containers with shells we found since hurricane Ivan.

Highly recommended!! We spent the past 9 days in your condo. It was our first trip to Orange Beach, but we plan to return again and again. I brought my teen grandkids ranging in age from 14-18. We had an awesome time. It was so beautiful and relaxing. We felt like we were on our own private island. Also, my granddaughter left her dress by the pool for 2 days before we realized it... when she checked it was still there... no one had bothered it. Thank you for your hospitality. We've saved your info and plan to contact you the next time we plan a vacation there.

We had a wonderful time at Portside. Everything was just as it was advertized. We ran into the owners several times during our stay and they are an extremely lovely and friendly couple. The unit is just a few steps from parking and just a short hop across the street and you're on the beach. I've had longer walks being beachside. Overall our experience was execellent and I would recommend it to anyone.

Quiet, Relaxing Family Vacation
Quiet, Relaxing Family Vacation
This condo was very clean and beautifully decorated. The pictures look just like the actual condo. The parking was wonderful - right by the stairway and in seconds you were at your room. The walk to the beach was not bad at all. We have stayed on the beachside before and had to walk as far as we did staying here. Even though it was peak season the beach and area around the condo was not crowded at all. The beach and water were beautiful! My son enjoyed fishing from the pier in the afternoon and even saw dolphins swimming by. This is a very quiet and family friendly condo. We enjoyed eating lunch in the gazbo and dining at nearby resturants in the evenings. The owners were wonderful to work with and very helpful. Kitchen was very well stocked and grocery store was only minutes away.

About the owner: My husband and I have been married 40 years, we are retired educators, and both currently have AL Real Estate Licenses. My passion is travel and Jerry's interest is all types of outdoor activities. Over the years we have traveled to many-many places, although he would rather be doing something outdoors -- he will go along with me. We have two children and three grandson -- all of our family members are beach lovers. Some of our families fondest memories are being at the beach in Orange Beach, AL.
Why the Owner Chose Portside:
In the early 1970's our family started visiting Orange Beach, at that time it was really just a 'tiny fishing village'. It was the perfect dream for our family, we stayed on the uncrowded beach most of the day, and late afternoon we went to the docks/piers to watch the boats come in with their daily catch. Our dream was to someday have a condo (place) in Orange Beach; after years of hard work and saving -- our dream came true. We always enjoy every minute we are in Orange Beach. Portside is the best place to be, it is located out of the congested areas and only minutes from everything you want or need. Great resturants from up-scale dining to the best hamburger ever are only minutes away. Fabulous shopping within minutes and also the Outlet Mall is maybe 25 minutes up the road. The area where Portside is located, is a very friendly family oriented area. The atmosphere for this area is very relaxing and refreshing -- not too much noise to deal with.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Portside 109 -- is the perfect unit! It is a first floor corner unit -- with easy access (from car to inside unit - two minutes). No waiting for elevators. Stairs (one flight) directly at designated parking spaces.The unit is very clean and comfortable with modern decor. You feel at home the minute you walk in -- it so so warm and friendly. The master bedroom has a TV mounted on the wall -- very restful for watching a good movie after a day at the beach. The kitchen is equipped with stainless, this gives the kitchen a up-to-date look. All of the furnishings are comfortable and welcoming -- helps you to feel at home. Four comfortable patio chairs on the deck that we enjoy.
