Crystal Shores West condo description

You'll love it! Wake up to the sound of the waves breaking, and the majestic view of the Gulf of Mexico through your glass doors, no obstructions. Wander out to the balcony, through the Master bedroom or the Living Room, with your favorite beverage in hand to watch the sunrise over the ocean. You can birdwatch, or even better, people watch. On the private balcony you can sunbathe in one of the two lounge chairs as well as relax at the table for six. You can see miles of ocean in different directions, beautiful white sandy beaches, along with the outside pool below, with the hottub. The kids will love playing in the pool or the game room while you lounge poolside! For those that can't take in as much sun, swim in the inside pool, spend time in the sauna, or exercise in the equipment room. From the condo, you'll be drawn out to the balcony throughout the day until you finally enjoy the sunset over the ocean in the evening.

There's plenty of room as you walk in for your personal belongings, with an entry table with a seashell perfect for keeping track of your keys, sunglasses, etc. The kitchen, dining room and living room are open with deluxe ceiling fans. There are ceramic tile floors throughout with carpet in the bedrooms for your comfort.

Included is a telephone where you can place free local calls, high speed WIRELES INTERNET connection as well as a satellite TV. In the living room, there is a pull out sofa bed and a flat screen TV!

The kitchen has everything you may need to prepare your favorite meal: microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, stove, refrigerator/freezer/icemaker, coffee maker, toaster, blender, mixer, pots and pans, dinnerware, utensils, and silverware.

The kitchen has a large pantry with plenty of storage. For your convenience if you are staying long term, there is a full size laundry room with washer, dryer, vacuum cleaner, ironing board, iron, laundry basket, and a nice place to store your luggage.

The master bedroom features a king size bed with deluxe linens, two bedside tables with lamps --- perfect for reading, with the sound of the ocean outside. There is also a dresser with mirror, and a deluxe ceiling fan. Adjoining the room, is the master bathroom with two sinks, and a large walk in closet.

The guest bedrooms each feature a queen size bed with comforter, 2 bedside tables with lamps, a dresser, a ceiling fan, and a flat screen tv. There is a closet for storage. The guest bedrooms also have their very own full bathrooms!

Remember, all the linens are furnished --- pack enough beach towels for the whole family, and you'll be ready to go!

If you forget anything, Crystal Shores West is only a couple of miles from Wal-Mart or Target. Old Time Pottery, a huge Tangler Outlets Plaza and more shopping are available!

Crystal Shores West Condominiums is a new building, built in 2006. Oceanfront/Beachfront condo - gorgeous views! Come and relax!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: We are from Effingham, Illinois. We work hard so that we can vacation in Gulf Shores :) We have spent alot of time getting our unit exactly how we want it while we are there. It has everything you might need or would use at home. We hope you love it as much as we do!

          Why the Owner Chose Crystal Shores West:
          When we were younger, we stayed in one of our friend's parents condo. We loved the ocean and the Gulf Shores area in general. We especially liked the fact that it was 'driveable' from many of the midwestern states, rather than wasting valuable vacationing time flying. We have 4 'children' in their 20's - 30's who work very hard, and we thought they would really like time away from work. Two of our children got married in 2009 year, and both honeymooned down here. They loved it! Come enjoy the weather and the friendly people of Gulf Shores!
