About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, Queens in both + bunks in guest room, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

New as of Sept 2016 are new couches and curtains plus a Cox Cable and WiFi connection in addition to a new Flat Screen Smart TV. Just press the Netflix button on the tuner, sign in with your Netflix account and you are all set. Also from the tuner you can connect to Youtube are more! There also a new Sony DVD player. If you want great sound it is very easy to hook up the speakers below the TV.

Not near the beach, but ON the most beautiful beach in Florida!

In Sept 2014 we installed a new queen mattress and box springs in the master bedroom and upgraded to a queen mattress and box springs in the guest bedroom.

As of the first of May in 2014 our condo has Travertine tile installed in every room throughout the whole condo!

This condo also has proprietary internet wireless access. Even though many condominiums have universal wireless service, it is often quite unreliable. Our condo # 104 has it's own wireless router and is password protected. The password is given to our guests upon arrival.

Since Hurricane Ivan this condo has been completely rebuilt and refurnished! It is better than it was before Ivan! It is a ground floor unit and parking is just steps away, as is the ocean and large pool.

Located on a very uncrowded part of Perdido Key. In the center of the spacious courtyard you will enjoy swimming and sunbathing at the large pool. The immaculate pool is cleaned every morning. Even when it is very windy on the beach the pool area has just a gentle breeze.

It doesn't get any better. Enjoy the expansive pure white sandy beach, warm Gulf of Mexico, gentle breeze and a pool side, well appointed beachfront 2 bedroom condominium.

The kitchen is well stocked with large variety of pots, pans, knives, utensils, platters, tableware, flatware and everything else you need to create memorable dinners. The kitchen and island countertop are made of beautiful Aztec design tile.

Dining area, living room, kitchen, hall and guest bath have Travertine tile floors. The living room has an ocean view, a sleeper sofa, comfortable couch, chairs, full wall mirror (adds a spacious feeling), patio and a TV with cable, and DVD player. The ocean front patio invites outdoor grilling and dining.

Guest bedroom includes bunks, a double and a TV with cable, and DVD Player. Master bedroom has a pool view, queen sized bed, it's own bathroom with shower and a TV with cable and DVD player.

The Condo's Grounds: Spacious lawn and gardens with flowering plants and palms make for a relaxing vacation. Surf fishing is popular. Whiting, Flounder, Blue Fish or Mackerel, just to name a few of what might be the catch of the day.

The dock and boat launching ramp on the north side of the property can accommodate a wide variety of watercraft and fishing off the dock is always rewarding.

The 2 Tennis Courts are well painted and well maintained.

About Bob Frye

We love swimming in the ocean and pool, sailing, fishing, playing tennis, boating, bike riding, beach combing and relaxing on the white quartz sands of the Mariner beach while looking out upon the Gulf of Mexico.

Bob Frye purchased this condo in 1993

Why Bob Frye chose Perdido Key

The huge white quartz sand beach on Perdido Key is unsurpassed! This uncrowded condominium has just 66 units compared to other condominiums that would have many hundreds of units on the same size property. Swimming in the surf is one of our favorite activities along with fishing from the beach. We enjoy the beautiful pool when it is windy or cool on the water.

What makes this condo unique

Unique to Perdido Key the Mariner has this most spacious courtyard and pool on the Key. We enjoy being on the ground and walking right out the sliding glass doors to the beach or the pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so glad to be back at the Mariner. This is our first time in #104 although we have had relatives stay here before. It is a great unit. Easy access to the beach and pool. I love the way it is decorated. Most of all I love it because it is kid friendly. Thanks!

Very clean, friendly people, beach and pool access was great. Would be great for a family with children, however we used for a girls getaway. It was a great stay and would definitely stay again.

Location was Ideal. We have stayed at Gulf Shores before this but we will continue to come to the Mariner as it is very family friendly. 1st floor was ideal as it was easy access to pool and beach.

Terrific amenities and location

  • 4 of 5

The condo size was just right. My husband and I enjoyed playing tennis every morning and walking on a beach that was not overcrowded. In the evening we would listen to the surf while playing cards. If it were just the two of us it gets a 5. However, my teenage son was less impressed - it is too far from the hangout and other teen friendly places in gulf shores. He was bored.

My family had a great time at the Mariner. This is the second time we have stayed at the Mariner but the first time in this condominium. It had everything we needed and being on the ground floor was great for the kids! While the Mariner is not one of the newer complexes, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Perdido. The pool is great and it is right on the beach! The on-site management is very available and ready to help you with any little problem (although we didn't have any). We had to change our arrival dates and the owners were flexible and very cooperative! I would highly recommend this complex and unit.

Awesome Condo in an Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect. We were 5 adults and 1 child, so the size was exactly what we needed. The location could not have been any better. It's on the ground floor right by the pool and the beach. We were able to walk completely barefoot to both places with no problems. The complex is mostly occupied by owners, which makes it a lot more laid back with a family atmosphere rather than a crazy touristy place. Everyone seemed to know everyone, and it was just such a great environment to be around. Before we left, we were already discussing making plans to come back to this exact unit next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review. We have owned #104 since 1992 and think it pretty much the best place location for any beachfront condo on Perdido Key. Hope you can come back next year. All the best, Bob & Lynne

Mariner 104

  • 5 of 5

This is a great unit at an incredible, family-friendly location. First floor makes beach access and loading/unloading a breeze. Close to beautiful, large pool. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils and cookware. Could use a couple of mixing bowls and a gallon pitcher but besides that, really great. Children love the bunk beds and we have to make a rotation schedule for the week. Master bed is a little small and hard, but it's only for a week. Overall nice unit and The Mariner is the best facility around for miles.
