The Master suite has a KING bed and private bathroom while the Guest suite has a QUEEN bed with an adjoining bathroom. The sofa makes into another bed. We have a full size washer and dryer in the unit. The huge pool is family friendly and sits amidst a green area like no other. There is a canoe launch next door where you can moor your boat or jet ski for the day. Boat launches are five minutes away.
WORKOUT at Orange Beach Rec Center which has heated pools, a cardio and free weights room, exercise classes, tennis and basketball courts, just a 5-minute walk across the street. Daily use fees are nominal.
KEEP IN TOUCH with work OR your friends back home using the free wireless high speed internet access.

Wonderful Vacation Getaway!!
Wonderful Vacation Getaway!!
My husband and I, along with our two young sons (ages 7 and 10), had a wonderful vacation in your condo! It is in a beautiful location, close to everything, and came furnished with all the conveniences you would find in your own home. It was very clean, decorated beautifully and the views from the outdoor patio were amazing! We enjoyed eating breakfast and watching the dolphins on the patio, swimming and relaxing at the large pool and experiencing all the close local eateries and beaches. Thank you for such a relaxing and memorable stay! Looking forward to making it back again sometime soon.

Great but don't bring a boat
Great but don't bring a boat
The condo is very nice and comfortable. We could not have been more pleased with the furnishings. Our only problem was that when we arrived the maintenance manager met us before we could get out of our car to tell us that our boat was not allowed to park inside gate and that we were not allowed to use any water slips to dock. More than one owner came over to us to comment on the rules of property. There seems to be an common dislike of renters. We ended up renting slip at Sportsman Marina for $30 per night. This condo is very nice but be aware if you bring a boat that you will not be welcome.

Owner response: There was a recent change in Marina Rules at Back Bay Resort. Guests can moor their boats overnight in the shallow water at the back of the building. Alternatively, there are two close marinas that will rent overnight slips. Trailers can be parked short-term outside the security gates and locked. We try to accommodate all guests who want to enjoy their boats while on vacation at the beach.
We had a great time and everything was great. I recommend it for everyone.

I had a wonderful visit & the condo was very nice. I loved the view---calm, relaxing, serene. The Fellow snowbirds were very friendly & willing to share ideas, experiences, & opportunities. I LOVE Orange Beach because it is family friendly & the people are so nice!

We had a wonderful time at your condo and surrounding area. We have vacationed in and around the Orange Beach, Gulf Shores area many, many times. We always chose to stay on the beach. However, we have learned in order to view more marine life and flora/fauna of an area, the bay is THE place to be. Our grandchildren were fascinated with the dolphins, hermit crabs, and birds of the area. We took a canoe with us and once again the kids loved canoeing out to the 'island' and back. We were close enough to the 'touristy' sites, like WaterVille, etc. that the kids love as well. The Pirate Ship cruise was enjoyed also. This is a very family oriented location. The pool was beautiful and enjoyed by all! Our condo was very ascetically pleasing and comfortable. We will definitely be back for family fun.

Arrived June 16-23 My family and I arrived at Back Condo 1004 and were beyond amazed at the beauty, luxury, and cleanliness of this wonderful condo. The kitchen had everything you would need to create a wonderful meal, which we used a couple of nights.The lighting over the eating bar is wonderful. The living area is very comfortable and very beautiful. I love the "butterfly" chair. The beds are so comfortable and you will get a good night's rest. I love the walk in showers.The view from the balcony is gorgeous and so peaceful. I saw dolphins and other sea life everyday.Looking out over the cove and gulf at night is spectacular with all the lights dancing on the water, something you don't see much of on beach side. The pool is wonderful and there is great fishing areas all around the condo. I have stayed at many units at Back Bay, but this is my favorite. This is a unit worth staying at and the owners were so helpful. I hope to be back soon at unit 1004. I have nothing negative to say about this condo. What a great vacation we had!

Wonderful Family Vacation
Wonderful Family Vacation
Condo was great, it was just as described. Has beautiful view from the balcony overlooking the bay. The condo complex was very quiet and laid back. The pool area was wonderful, not as hectic as some as the others we have stayed at. The owners are very helpful and we hope to stay with them again as soon as possible. Thanks for the great family memories.

The condo was beautifully decorated and we thoroughly enjoyed our week. Every morning there was at least two to three dolphins in the bay, in front of the balcony. The view of the bay and Perdido Pass was exceptional. The pool was great and we will definitely stay here once again. If you have children and love to fish, you will definitely want to stay here, just have plenty of shrimp for bait. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and even called to let us know that the room wasn't quite ready. If you enjoy a quiet time at the beach, Back Bay Resort is the place to stay. I will definitely stay here again. Thanks again for everything.

About the owner: Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, we always enjoyed traveling and heading to the beach. In our early days, it was the sandy beaches near Galveston. When we discovered the beautiful white sand beaches of Orange Beach, we knew Alabama had a wonderful secret (just like Destin, but without the crowds). Now, we spend our leisure time traveling in a motorhome, but always come back to the Gulf coast here.
Why the Owner Chose Back Bay Resort:
After visiting Back Bay Condominium for several years, meeting the permanent residents and guests, we decided this was a perfect place to relax and enjoy the warm Gulf waters to do some deep-sea fishing.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
As soon as we saw this condo and the views from the balcony at night, we knew it would be 'our little piece of paradise.'
