Property description

UNIT 209: When you want it all, you can get it all at Tidewater Condominiums. Located in the middle of upscale Orange Beach, Tidewater offers you all the amenities that you could ask for in a setting that is incomparable.

Not only are the broad white sandy beaches and emerald green waters breathtaking, there are so many amenities that you may have to extend your stay to use them all. If you are interested in fishing in the Gulf, please see link below for fishing pictures from our family in 2010.

Tidewater features a large outdoor pool, an indoor heated pool, a hot tub, a fitness center facing the Gulf, a sauna, and a grilling/picnic area.

We offer a beautiful newly decorated 3 bedroom, 3 full bath unit which, of course, has a direct Gulf Front 160 degree view (see photo) and a second balcony from a guest bedroom. This is a corner unit with 9 foot ceilings and an over-sized balcony and plenty of privacy as there are no balconies who look into the balcony nor can't look into any other balconies. There is plenty of space between condos in this upscale area of Orange Beach. This second floor (actually 3 stories up) unit has the feel of an elegant and soothing retreat. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with a new pillow top mattress, a king mattress in one guest's bedroom and a queen mattress in the 3rd bedroom which also has a balcony with a view of Perdido Bay, and the living room has a double-size sofa sleeper.

HOW DO YOU DETERMINE A GREAT CONDO? CHECK OUT REVIEWS. As a recent guest told us on the phone, 'there is much to say about dealing directly with the owner who really cares about their condo and their guests'.

This condo comfortably sleeps up to eight including children. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a full size washer and dryer in a utility room.

Tidewater Condominiums are located in the heart of Orange Beach just minutes from Gulf Shores and Perdido Key. It is located 3/4 mile from the Perdido Pass Bridge. Largest marina in Orange beach with two eateries directly across the street.

Also close by are exceptional golf courses, fishing, and of course, fantastic shopping. Be sure to check out the links mentioned below for golf information. This condo will truly make a wonderful vacation destination for a family or bring Grandma and Grandpa with you.

During the late spring, summer and early fall, watching the moon come up over the Gulf is breathtaking while sitting on the balcony. During the fall and winter, the sunrises and sunsets are very beautiful. Coffee on the balcony at 7:00 AM makes the trip worthwhile. You will never forget the sight.


Keywords: Condominium, 2 king bedrooms and 1 queen bedroom, double sleeper sofa, 3 full baths with full beach & ocean front view. All furnishings new. Limit is 6 adults and 2 children under 12.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are Kathy and Andy Schaus of Little Rock, Arkansas. We stay at our condos 3-5 times a year doing maintenance, some shopping, some fishing and just sitting on the beach and always having coffee early morning on the balcony watching the ocean.

Why the Owner Chose Tidewater:
Tidewater is one of the smaller condo complexes so short wait for elevators and never a crowded pool outdoors and plenty of room on the beach. We also like the elbow room between condos at Tidewater. Staff and security are very friendly. We had to have an indoor heated swimming pool as we normally go in the off-season. Quote from a recent guest: 'The building was extremely clean and well-kept. There was absolutely no problem with noise, and the property was well supervised.'

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our condo association has a keen interest in making Tidewater a clean and safe property. Owners have pride. Say 'hi' to Kenya & Rick from our maintenance staff. As owners, sand in the condo can be very upsetting and plug drains. There are two high pressure fresh water hoses near the entry gate back to the condo which washes off the sand from feet and toys you may take to the beach.
