Property description

People call and ask, how close we are to the beach. Well...if you were to jump off the balcony (which I would not recommend), you would be right on it! Come and see why most of our renters return.
++Our unit comes with 2 gulf front beach chaise loungers + umbrella set up for our guests from March through late October daily. This is typically $30-$40/day per pair and we include it with all of our rentals!

Crystal Shores is a thoughtfully well-built, 14-story building, directly on the beach overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. It is two years young! Loaded with many state-of-the-art amenities for guests, it is simply one of the best buildings on less-trafficed west beach in Gulf Shores for either a couple or small family to share memories of a perfect vacation.

The onsite fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment directly overlooks the Gulf of Mexico The Indoor-outdoor pool and spa also is built to afford sweeping views of the gulf while you are soaking! This building has it all and also boasts an incredibly convienient location close to all the shopping and parks! Hit the 'G' elevator button, and in one minute, your toes are blissfully in the fluffy white sand!

This CORNER unit is located higher in the building and offers views of both the Gulf of Mexico and the Little Lagoon from the wrap-around huge balcony and from every window in the place! It is professionally decorated with very comfortable and new beach decor. The unit sleeps six (max). YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHEN YOU SEE A CORNER UNIT VS. AN INTERIOR ONE THAT THE VIEW, SUN and EXTRA SPACE THAT A SEPARATE LAUNDRY ROOM PROVIDES MAKES THE SLIGHT EXTRA COST WELL WORTH IT.

We have high speed wifi for your computer and tons of other creature comforts. The kitchen is fully loaded and ready to experience your culinary prowess!

The two bedrooms both have King-Size beds with Premium mattresses (I insisted since I have a bad back)... and the couch in the living room has a premium Sealy mattress in the pull out queen-size sleeper. The master bedroom boasts a view of the Gulf of Mexico. It is a heavenly sight upon awakening each morning! Dolphins are a common sighting, too! The second bedroom offers a lovely view of the Little Lagoon.

Our goal in furnishing our condo was comfort for our family, when we visit our second home-away-from-home. The linens are top quality, and the balcony furniture offers high-end comfort with great chaise lounges for reading books! It is loaded with tons of books, games, puzzles, videos, and DVD's to entertain young and old.

You can watch the videos or DVD's in either of the bedrooms or living room on one of the three televisions. It is hard to watch TV though, while you're sitting on the couch, when the views of the Gulf of Mexico and Little Lagoon are vying for your attention!

High-end appointments in this unit include granite counter tops, tile floors and carpeting in the bedrooms, refrigerators with ice makers and filtered water and an incredibly well-stocked cooks kitchen - because I like to cook! There are also grill facilities on site in season.

It is best to enjoy the corner view at dusk while watching the sunset as you eat at the balcony height outdoor table overlooking both the Gulf of Mexico and the Little Lagoon, and the chef doesn't feel bad cooking because you can see the Gulf the whole time!

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Cleaning & Parking (2) $150
  • Tax Rate 11%

Notes:

Rates are subject to change. Minimum rental amounts of time during certain holidays, events such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and Shrimp Fest. Please ask owner.

I email a lease and cc hold form. We can hold a reservation with a CC and charge it $1 to validate it. This serves as the security deposit. I then ask the renter to tuck a check in the mail one month prior to arrival. If the renter would like to pay via cc we can do this, but it will add a $50 cc processing fee to above rates on anything over $1,000.


Please wait... Travel with confidence

Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We bought this property when it was built in 2004 and when I walked on the balcony with my hard hat on, I started jumping up and down. It is such a view and such a great condo. I put my heart into the decor our place and it's so comfortable, I know you will feel it in each and every room. I am constantly working on the creature comforts. From the stripes in the bathroom to the other items we have throughout that make you realize this truly is a second home...ours and we'd love to have you enjoy it as we have over the years. It looks and lives brand new! (New Carpeting throughout in 2015.)

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Shores:
Not too big with too many units, and yet has all the amenities of larger behemoth properties. I don't want to be crowded on the beach! This stretch is a little wider, too.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
BEACH SERVICE IS INCLUDED WITH OUR RENTAL 3/1-10/31. Corner balcony overlooks Gulf of Mexico AND little lagoon. Balcony height bar stools are crucial for seeing over the railings and getting pure views of the gulf. Grilling area (charcoal) on site as well as beach chairs set up for you each day with umbrella (front row!) and beach towels in our condo.
