Property description

in 2015 TripAdvisor rated Gulf Shores one of the 13 best vacation rental destinations in the United States. In July 2014 ABC's Good Morning America rated Gulf Shores one of the 5 favorite vacation places in the U.S. USA Today on June 27, 2012 rated the water at Gulf Shores beaches at 5 stars, the top rating. The Travel Channel named Gulf Shores as on of the best 5 beachs.
Relax on the balcony directly on the gulf. Enjoy morning coffee or an afternoon drink and watch the sunset from a 7th floor view.
The entire condo has new tile flooring for the best in casual living and freshly painted in March 2015.
This Gulf front unit looks out on pure white sand and beautiful gulf water. The large, high quality outdoor table and chairs offers you the perfect place to have coffee and meals or to simply put your feet up on an ottoman and relax with a good book.
Inside the condo you will find upscale furnishings and decorations, fresh paint as of March 2015. With 9 foot ceilings, sofa and love seat and a 40 inch flat screen TV with DVD in the living area you will feel like you are on a luxurious vacation in the Caribbean. As in the living area, the master bedroom opens to the balcony and is beautifully furnished with a king size bed and flatscreen TV. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and allows guests to enjoy their own TV also. Each bedroom has a full private bath allowing for the privacy you deserve. Should you need it, a sleeper sofa in the living area converts easily into an additional queen size bed.
Six guests can sit comfortably around the beautiful wooden table for leisure dining or playing cards or other games. A full granite bar seats three guests and provides a handy place for snacking or visiting with the cook. The spacious kitchen has granite countertops throughout and ample dishes and equipment to make your stay quite pleasant. This condo has a full size washer and dryer so you don’t have to return home with dirty clothes, and the large hot water heater provides plenty of hot water for washing bodies, dishes and clothes all at the same time.

Crystal Shores is a 11 year old unit within easy walking distance of everything in Gulf Shores, including shopping and restaurants. The complex is only 88 units with 6 units per floor which allows for an uncrowded beach and comfortable use of both the indoor and outdoor swim-through pools. Comfortable wooden beach loungers and umbrellas may be rented by the day or week. If you like to cook outdoors, you will find BBQ grills waiting for you on the ground floor and you can work off that extra hamburger in the workout/exercise room and sauna on the 2rd floor. The exercise room and pool area are the best on the beach (see photos). Enjoy a game of pool on the free pool table available to guests.
Wired and wireless internet is free for guests in our condo so you have easy access to all internet needs. We believe you will appreciate that this is a non smoking and “no pets are allowed” unit.

Pier 33 grocery store is across the street for any needed food, drinks or other necessities.

This condo is our home away from home and we believe you will enjoy it as much as we do. We invite you to come to our condo to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of being on the ocean with all the luxury of a first class condo. You will not want to go home!
