About the property

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

New as of May 11, 2018

2 high sitting beach chairs ( 4 beach chairs total), Char-Broil Grill, Swivel rocker cushion & Accent pillows, LED lighting throughout condo, area rugs and front lawn landscaping!

Also new as of Spring 2018 are even more new multiple raised bike and hiking trails at the Backcountry trails at Orange Beach. A fantastic experience!

New as of 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, 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!

Nice and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

Property was very convenient to beach and pool. We enjoyed our stay but the unit could use a little TLC. The Oven handle came off every time we tried to open it, and the dishwasher was a little broken. Couldn't find the remote for the DVD player. The beds and furniture were comfortable and updated. The location was perfect. Beaches were clean and not very crowded. Good fishing from the surf! We would stay here again.

Nice condo! PERFECT location in relation to the pool and beach!

Mattresses/sheets needing some attention would be my only complaint.

A very comfortable condo in a well-maintained building with easy access to the beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

We were in a first-floor condo the access to the pool and the beach was excellent. The location on Perdido Key is perfect for exploring both east and west. We loved the restaurants, fresh oysters and so many outdoor dining venues. We used the boat dock and explored the surrounding areas via boat... also went hiking in the backcountry trails and the Gulf Shores . The people at the condo were friendly and we often saw them on morning walks on the beach or watching the sunset from the boardwalk.

Well stocked condo close to beach

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen is fully equipped with excellent knives, coffee grinder and maker, wine glasses, etc. which we really enjoyed since we spend a lot of time cooking. It is nice being on the ground floor with an ocean view and so close to the boardwalk to the beach, and my two-year-old loved collecting many shells on warm days. It did get unusually cold, and the heat kept us warm. The two couches are nice, and the hide-a-bed was comfortable enough for sleeping. But the walls are thin, and sound penetrates easily; I don't think we would return during high season since being across from the elevator means that if you're in the kitchen or front bedroom, you hear everyone getting on and off as well as their conversation. And of course people walking by the path on the porch can just peer inside, which they frequently do. The bathrooms also do not have fans, which seemed strange for such a humid place. But overall a really nice stay!
