Crystal Tower condo description

Live the life Jimmy Buffet wrote about....
Crystal Towers is a newer complex in Gulf Shores and is one of a kind with resort amenities galore to pamper you during your stay. Those amenities include a indoor pool, outdoor pool with hot tub, fully equipped exercise room over looking the pool and nearby game room and sauna off of the beautiful lobby. On the 2nd floor there is a media/meeting room that can be reserved at the front desk for your gatherings during your stay. From there you will see the air conditioned enclosed walkway that leads to the 'Beach Club' where you will find the beautifully landscaped 1.5 million dollar beach side pool with a lazy river, large hot tub and gazebo. From the pool area there is a gated boardwalk to the 100' of private beach on the Gulf of Mexico.
The Tower is handicap accessible with 3 elevators and ramps. Take the elevator to the 5th floor and walk right into our beautifully decorated condo. There is a 25 ft balcony that is accessible from living area and master bedroom. The living area has a 47' flat screen Tv with DVD and Wii and a queen sleeper sofa. The master bedroom has a queen bed, 32' flat screen TV and DVD and walk in closet. The 2nd bedroom has a bunk bed that has a twin bed and full size bed with pull out trundle and a flat screen TV with a Play Station 2.
The kitchen is fully equipped and has everything that you possible would need. There is an outdoor covered grill station for those who want to grill their meals.
A laundry room with full washer and dryer is spacious and has much storage/ drying areas.
When we furnished this condo, we did so with our guest in mind as a place to be comfortable and relaxing. We live close by and check it frequently for any details that may need our attention.
There is 24 hr security on site.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: My wife and I bought this condo for ourselves and our family and furnished it with us in mind. We have loved it and decided to share it with others. We live close by and check the property frequently.

              Why the Owner Chose Crystal Tower:
              We live here and wanted to have a place to go to feel like we were on vacation. Whether it is getting up in the morning and sitting out on the balcony drinking coffee, fishing on the beach, strolling hand in hand on the beach or anything else to relax you. Our beaches are the most beautiful in the US.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              I like the fact that the Complex is on the North side of the Beach Hwy and has an enclosed air conditioned walkway to the beach. The landscaping is beautiful and the amenities are numerous.
