Property description

Down home southern comfort meets uptown big-city amenities!

This ocean-side destination resort gives you the oppportunities to play in the salty surf, as well as sun by one of the five pool-sides - each with its own hot tub and children's wading pool. Located on the 11th floor of Avalon at The Beach Club, Gulf Shores, Al, our two bedroom condo boasts sunset views from the balcony.

The Beach Club is the ultimate resort experience for the entire family. This is a perfect getaway - waking up to the sound of crashing waves directly beyond your master bedroom and living room and watching breathtaking sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. The Beach Club is off the beaten path and when you enter the front gate the sign says it all: 'RELAX, YOU ARE HERE'. Even though it is away from the traffic of tourists, it is only 12 miles west of downtown Gulf Shores (with a Gulf Shores address) and 9 miles east of Fort Morgan. The resort is a gated community with 24 hours security.

The resort offers a complete fitness center, tennis, basketball, shuffle board for fitness buffs, as well as being centrally located to some of the most beautiful golf courses in the south. The resort features an elegant restaurant/bar and a more casual sports bar with large screen tvs, pool tables, golf similator and arcade type games, allowing visitors to enjoy the highest quality of dining options while never leaving the comfort of the resort. The Beach Club is also close to several outstanding resturants in the Gulf Shores area, as well as being just a short drive away from Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley.

Our condo has been professionally decorated with high end furniture and accessories. It has been refurbished in the last year including new appliances and cupboard. Our kitchen and bathrooms feature granite countertops. The kitchen features the cooking convenience of home with a microwave, stove, dishwasher, refrigerator and complete set of cooking utensils/dishes unlike most, if not all, rental condos. The kitchen overlooks the dining room and spacious living room divided by a breakfast bar. The living room opens onto the balcony and features a large screen television with a DVD and video player as well as a very comfortable sectional sofa and several side chairs. There are two bedrooms and two and a half baths. The master bedroom has a king bed, private bath, and walk-in closet with access to the balcony overlooking the gulf. The second bedroom has a twin and a double bed and its own private bathroom. Both bedrooms have a television and dvd player. All the bedrooms have large closets and ample dresser space. The half bathroom is off the front entrance hallway. The living room couch also converts to a comfortable queen bed. There are ceiling fans in both bedrooms and the living room.

When you enter this destination resort, you will check in at the front building. They will provide you with your keys and handle any questions you may have about the resort. When you check in you can make arrangements to have all of your incidental charges while on resort property, such as food, items in one of the 3 gift shops, bar tabs, etc. placed onto your account if you desire.

We rent our unit through the Beach Club rental program so when you make contact with us on VRBO, we refer you to the Beach Club so you receive the same amenities that those who rent directly through the Beach Club receive, but at a reduced rental rate. Guest for other units through VRBO may have to pay an additional daily charge ($20+/day/person) to use the club house pools, sauna and fitness center. You will not have this additional charge. You also receive all the assistance from the Beach Club staff that renters through the Beach Club receive (eg. unit maintenance issues).

The Beach Club is 9 miles east of historic Fort Morgan. This is a wonderful place to visit if you want a break from the beach. You can take a 35 minute car ferry (or take a bike or walk onto the ferry) to visit Dauphin Island. If you take your car onto the ferry, you might want to drive along the west side of Mobile Bay and visit Bellangraph Gardens. Before you get onto the ferry, visit historic Fort Morgan itself as it has great Civil War and Spanish-American War significance. We are within 20-60 min. drive from historic locations of Fairhope, Weeks Bay National Esturay, Magnolia Springs and Blakeley State Park.

If you are looking for a family-friendly resort with an endless list of relaxing OR exciting fun, our condo will be a perfect fit for your next southern getaway. The amenities of the resort offer an extra bonus for those who want to step up their vacation to a level beyond sitting on the beach.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: We have been retired for ten years having lived in Michigan all of our lives. We have lived most of our married life in the country on family farm property with fields between our neighbors. We love living in Michigan where it is peaceful and quiet but as we have aged we like getting away from the cold and snow so we spend the 3 winter months in Alabama. We began our retirement years in a motor home with the intention of traveling to different winter get away locations each year. Our first location was Gulf Shores and we liked it so much that we ended up back there every year. After three years in our large high-end motor home we decided to purchase a condo. This was a big move for us as we had never stayed in a condo. When we found the Beach Club we fell in love wiith the view, the quality of the resort, the space around the condo and the unit itself. We purchased the condo the spring before the major huricane, Ivan, hit the region. In spite of this we are extreamly happy that we made the choice to purchase at the Beach Club. We have found the view from our balcony, the amenities on the property and the privacy of our unit a wonderful winter home for us. From the numerous comments made in our guest book, it sounds like our guests feel the same.

Why Beach Club:
Sugar white sand. Cleanliness of the area. Restaurants, golf courses and shopping opportunities. Safe and peaceful area. The local residents are friendly and willing to help with infomation. Close to Mobile and Pennsacola where there are many sightseeing opportunities. The Beach Club staff are wonderful and will go out of their way to make your stay the best possible.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We spend three winter months at the condo so it is our second home. We try to keep it as perfect and as comfortable as our main home. Our condo is managed by the Beach Club so you receive all of the guest features of the Beach Club rentals but at a lower rate. It is important to us to keep the condo in peak operating condition. Our goal is for you to have a PERFECT visit to the beach. Our own adult children, their friends, and our young grandchildren always look forward to their southern vacation. It is a treat to go from Michigan to the Gulf of Mexico. Life on the beach offers so many things to do that are different from what we have in mid Michigan. They love the water, the surf, the crabbing, etc. For the adults there is relaxation, sitting by the pool absorbing the sun, going out to different restaurants in the area, watching the Blue Angels fly by the condo and experiencing the life on the beach with fishing, etc.
