Tidewater condo description
Tidewater Condominium sits directly on the Gulf of Mexico in Orange Beach, Alabama.
Picture yourself savoring your morning coffee as you take in the panoramic beauty of the sunrise over the clear blue water and sugar white sand from your balcony off the master bedroom before you start your days activity. Think about frolicking in surf, building castles in the sand, looking for sand dollars and unique shells, or perhaps just relaxing while you sunbath and read your favorite book as the waves wash against the shore.
Take a day to shop. Orange Beach and neighboring Gulf Shores provide a wide array of specialty shops and boutiques including the Wharf on the back bay that offers many upscale shops, a variety of restaurants, a multiplex movie theater and a large Ferris wheel. Take a 15 minute drive to Foley and visit the TANGER outlet mall. The largest outlet mall in Southern Alabama.
Perhaps fishing is on the agenda there are charter boats available for partial, full day, group or private outings, as well as a lovely fishing pier located at the Gulf State Park between Orange Beach and Gulf Shores.
Enjoy your stay in this well equipped and comfortable 3 bedroom and 3 bath condominium. This west end unit has two balconies that provide a panoramic view of the gulf and a picturesque view of the waters of the back bay. From the gulf front balcony enjoy a beautiful sunrise while looking for Dolphins playing in crystal blue waters or watch the fishing boats pushing out to sea for a day of fishing. Soak up a magnificent sunset from either deck as you enjoy your favorite evening beverage.
If golf is your game try any one of the many courses in Alabama and Florida ranging from par 3 to 18 hole championship courses within easy driving distance.
This unit offers every amenity and comfort for your vacation. A heated indoor pool and hot tub. A spacious well appointed palm-shaded outdoor pool for your swimming and lounging enjoyment. There is a fitness room with gulf front views and a sauna for your enjoyment. The lighted boardwalk guides you to the beach for an evening walk in the afterglow of sunset. There is a TV with DVD in each bedroom and a TV with DVD and VCR in the living room. The unit is equipped with a full size washer and dryer in a separate laundry room. The kitchen is fully equiped and ready for family meals or entertaining. The unit is equiped with broadband and Wi-Fi internet service and there is a phone in each room. The complex has several charcoal grills located at the side of the building for your grilling pleasure.
For the kids, there’s Waterville water park in Gulf Shores, go-kart tracks, miniature golf and jet ski rentals. Water-skiing, para-sailing and water craft rentals are available in a close proximity of the condo. The nearby Pensacola Naval Air Station air museum and IMAX theater has something to offer for all ages. It is also the home of the famous Navy flying Blue Angels. Check with the museum information for dates and times of practice sessions. The public is welcome to visit during these practice shows. You are right there on the edge of the runway and the show is spectacular! There may even be the opportunity to hang around the museum and meet the pilots and get some autographs. Don't forget to visit the light house on the base before you leave.
If you have children with you, may we suggest trying LuLu's restaurant. It is owned by Lucy Buffett (Jimmy Buffetts sister).
She really knows how to treat people and keep their kids happy with all the activities available at her outdoor activity area. It is the kind of place you will want to return to again and again. We have to admit that it is great fun even if you do not have children with you!
If it is your first visit PLEASE stop by the Orange Beach Welcome Center and they will help you get familiar with all that is available for your enjoyment. They also have event calendars and maps of the area available, as well as discount coupons!
If you love nature there is a lovely zoo where you can get up close to the animals, acres of State Parks all around the area, dolphin cruises that will take you out for a couple of hours of fun watching the dolphins frolic in the wake of the boat. Remember to bring your cameras to capture the dolphins and the smiles on everyone's face. We recommend the Cold Mil dolphin cruise. Great fun!
Remember the simpler times walking the beach and listening to the surf in the early morning or evening. Relaxing in a lounge chair all day long when you need to just unwind. The Orange Beach area is also a great place for doing nothing at all but relaxing and enjoying the sea air. A day at the beach sitting in the sun or relaxing under an umbrella is a great way to renew and refresh yourself.

- Great location for many adventures. Close to the navel museum in Pensacola Florida, home of the Flying Blue Angels. Practice shows on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Practice is usually at 8:30 AM admission is free. There are bleachers at the edge of the field or you can bring a bag chair. A chance of a lifetime to get up close and see a great show. On Wednesday pilots are in museum and you can talk to them and get autographs. It is a thrill for young and old alike....moreless

Minor inconveniences/great location
Minor inconveniences/great location
Location, beach, and condo itself was great. Slightly disappointed in the cleaning service that was hired. There was mold on the shower curtains and no sheets for the pull out sofa. They came and brought things but just put it in a plastic sack and didn't change the shower curtain. Just left it for us to do. The corner location was good until the trash service came one morning right below our bedroom. The trash chute was also located by the back bedroom so anytime people dumped trash it seemed to be right in the room with you. The best thing was three bathrooms in the unit. Perfect for a group of people. Everyone could get ready quickly. The pool area was nice and the grounds were kept clean. Nice balcony to enjoy the view. TVs in every room which was great at night. Everyone was very friendly and polite. There were restaraunts located nearby, grocery stores, shops, and marina. The owner was very helpful and the description was accurate.

Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, families with teenagers.
Owner response: Thank you for your review. I have contacted the cleaning company to make sure the problem does not happen again. The months of June and July were fully booked and left only a small window between 11 AM and 4 PM for cleaning that sometimes makes it harder to be thorough. In order to make sure that there is not a repeat situation with the shower curtain liner I have asked that extra liners be left in the bathroom vanities for guests to have in case there is a problem. I also asked that an extra linen service for the queen size sofa bed be left in the unit in the end table by the sofa bed. Again thank you for the review, we will do our best to make sure this does not happen again.

Mardi Gras in Alabama
We were the guest of the owners of Tidewater condo unit #109 and really enjoyed the unit and its convenient location to all the family friendly Mardi Gras fun that is available in the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area. We were able to enjoy several family friendly parades and parties. The weather was great and there was fun for everyone. Great seafood is available in the area. Lovely white sand beaches and the sound of the surf makes walking the beach in the morning and evening a must!
