Seacrest condo description


'Son of a Sailor' is a professionally decorated condo located in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Your hosts, Dennis and Betty, have remodeled for you and your family to enjoy. The condo is named for your hosts' fathers who served in WWII and loved boating and sailing.

Each room radiates the colors of the tranquil ocean waters and white sandy beaches that Gulf Shores is widely known for. 'Son of a Sailor' is located on the 6th floor offering a great view and close enough to hear the ocean waves or see your children running along the shore or playing in the pool below.

The condo is designed to comfortably sleep 4 people if you use the pull out queen sofa bed or the two bunk beds tucked neatly inside the hallway. The private bedroom and bath have the look and feel of a resort beach hotel. The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances and dishes (glass and plastic) and linens that give you the experience of a coastal kitchen cottage. The patio offers a great view overlooking the waters and beach...have your cup of coffee in the morning or an intimate dinner at night.

The family room and kitchen have an modern cottage open design so that you have the advantage of viewing the ocean from any point in the room. Or you can watch your favorite movie on a 32” flat screen HDTV and DVD.

Enjoy a beautiful sunrise or sunset from your balcony…no charge! So whether you are a couple looking for a romantic getaway or a family seeking adventure, 'Son of a Sailor' has it all.

Come to your home away from home…where memories are made and moments take your breath away.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: Your hosts both have careers in event planning, advertising, decorating and marketing. Their families have been visitng Gulf Shores for years and other family members have second homes in Gulf Shores.

                          Why the Owner Chose Seacrest:
                          Your hosts chose to buy in Gulf Shores because of the natural beauty, love of the ocean and love for the people in Gulf Shores. It provides a great escape from the hectic life of living in a large southern city.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          You will love waking up each morning to the beautiful view of the gulf and watching the sunsets from the balcony each evening. The ocean breeze and patio provide a quiet place to take a nap or read a book. You can walk to some of the resturants and activities but the west beach still provides the calm and quaint look of a small beach town. You feel safe riding a bike, a scooter or taking a walk down the beach. Little Lagoon is just across the street and a few blocks down the road. The minute you arrive at Seacrest a calmness takes over and you are on island time.
