Cruise ship or condo? It's hard to tell from the view! Step out on the 20th floor balcony of this Crystal Tower penthouse and take in the magnificent ocean and western view. Or soak up the lagoon and west end view from the rear bedroom balcony. Relax in one of the lounge chairs, or enjoy your morning coffee at an outdoor dining table at # 2009.
Pool, beach club or ocean? It's hard to make a decision! For a quick dip, you will find the indoor pool, outdoor pool, and hot tub adjacent to the lobby. Take the air-conditioned walkway over West Beach Boulevard and you will find the largest pool in Gulf Shores. Drift through the lazy river, or lounge in one of the many chairs provided. Restroom facilities and showers are also available.

About Ron Sikes
I am semi-retired, but still working as a digital forensic examiner in Huntsville, Alabama. Originally from Oregon, I joined the United States Marine Corps, and spent my active duty time in (would you believe) southern California. Following many years there in military software and law practice, I eventually retired back to Oregon. But a former boss made me an offer I couldn't refuse, so I unretired and moved to Huntsville. I now spend a lot of my time in Gulf Shores.
Ron Sikes purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Ron Sikes chose Gulf Shores
The amenities in Crystal Tower are superb, and the property is extremely well-maintained. The fact that it was built in 2006 and has the most up to date construction features is another plus. The location is perfect, and the pools and hot tubs are some of the nicest on the beach. The on-site management and security is an additional amenity not found at many other condominiums. AND... the view from this west end unit is the best on the beach!
What makes this Condo unique
There are three pools, one indoor and two outdoor, one of which is the largest pool in Gulf Shores. There are two hot tubs, a nicely equipped exercise room, and private access to the beach club. The unit itself is family friendly, and extremely quiet. The balconies are extra large, there are a full-size washer and dryer right in the unit, and the on-site management is there to offer assistance.

Loved this condo. Me and my family did not want to leave. The views from it was beautiful. Especially the sun sets. Thanks Ron for everything the condo was great . Really felt like we were at home with an ocean view. Love this place. Thanks Steven B.
Great condo. Clean, comfortable, modern with one of the best views ever! Great pools and beach too!
Great condo. We've stayed at Crystal Tower several times but this was the best condo.
Crystal Tower management could do a better job of cleaning guest bathrooms. Especially by the pool area closest to the beach access. Also, need an age limit on hot tubs. So many children the adults can't enjoy. We pay a lot of money to stay there.
Amazing Condo in Gulf Shores
Our family of 5 loved this condo. The views are incredible, two beautiful bedrooms with king size beds that are top quality and comfortable. Ron has everything you need in this condo. We have done many many vacation rentals and none have had the pots, pans, utensils that Ron has in this condo. Crystal Towers is a beautiful complex. The covered walkway to the beach is very convenient, makes the beach access very nice. Of course the beach is beautiful and the city of Gulf Shores is delightful. We've stayed at Sanibel Condominium for years in Gulf Shoes. After our stay with Ron at Crystal Towers we definitely prefer Crystal Towers for many reasons. The pools and fitness center are excellent. Thank you Ron for your lovely well appointed condo, this made our family's spring break wonderful, the weather didn't cooperate very well but we were still thrilled because your condo was so beautiful and comfortable with all the comforts of home. We hope to return soon to stay again in the beautiful condo.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Valerie. I'm glad you enjoyed he condo and the great amenities at Crystal Tower and Gulf Shores. I look forward to your return visit.
We chose this condo after searching several places in Gulf Shores to stay for our family vacation this year! Ron was very kind and easy to deal with! He answered all our questions in a timely manor. That being said, we LOVED 2009!! My kids referred themselves as the "Penthouse Brats" lol!! The views were spectacular! Unfortunately we were only able to enjoy them the night we got there and the last night thanks to Tropical Storm Cindy. With the comfort of the condo and the indoor pool, we were able to enjoy several days inside. The amenities are great! The air conditioned walkway that took us across the street put our minds at ease when our teenagers wanted to go to the BIG pool without us. The staff kept everything nice and clean even when the winds were blowing like crazy!
Inside the condo, decorated in vibrant colors throughout, we found everything we needed and more! We love the two balconies because sometimes the wind was so unbearable on the beach side but the bay side balcony was quiet and shielded from the wind. Granted we had 30 mph winds at some points! Ron called to check on us during the week due to the storm which we found very considerate. We had to bring in several of the balcony cushions due to them being soaked and flying all over the place. The balcony furniture was comfy as well. We will definitely be staying here again in the future! Thank you for sharing your condo with us, Ron!
Thank you Janet. I'm so pleased that you were able to enjoy your visit even with the stormy weather. Surely it will be better during your next visit!
