About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Stepping onto the balcony of this 11th floor penthouse unit you will be amazed at the awesome views of Perdido Pass, the Gulf of Mexico and Terry Cove. If you're looking for a special condo that offers fun for the entire family then Back Bay Resort is the place for you.

Enjoy your coffee out on the balcony watching dolphins chase fish in the blue waters below while fishing charter boats head out Perdido Pass to the Gulf of Mexico. This condo offers 'the best of both worlds' with access to the beach only minutes away and boating and fishing right in front of the complex, all of this with a huge pool and grounds to enjoy. Although boat slips and docks are for residents, bringing your boat or wave runner is no problem since you can moor or anchor it down at the beach shore area for easy access.

Elevators will take you to the 11th floor where you will find our condo beautifully decorated with all the comforts of home. The family room is furnished with a sofa and club chairs with the sofa converting to a full size bed! In the corner is the entertainment center with a 40" flat screen TV, Stereo, DVD entertainment and high-speed Wireless internet access for your laptop and phone convenience. The master bedroom features a king-size bed, dresser and private bath with a 40" flat screen TV.

The second bedroom has a queen bed and its own private access to the hall bath. We also have a full size washer and dryer along with a fully stocked kitchen with enough utensils, pots and pans ready for your own shrimp boil. As night falls enjoy the incredible show of the 'city skyline' as lights glow from the condominiums and boats cruising by--a refreshing and entertaining contrast to the darkness of a night time ocean-view.

With nearby attractions like pro designed golf courses, shopping at The Wharf and Tanger Outlet mall, fishing charters, amusement parks, waterslides and tremendous restaurants all within minutes of the condo it doesn't get much better that this! Come, relax and enjoy your stay...we look forward to hearing from you soon!

Kevin was outstanding

  • 5 of 5

The condo was lovely and the view wonderful! Great location! Kevin was so gracious when we called him even though he had just gone through a mandatory evacuation from his home in Florida due to the treat of Irma. He had just returned to his home the same day we arrived at his condo. Even without power at his house he was quick to respond to a few phone calls we made to him during our stay. Hope to return again soon.

Comfortable Family-Friendly Condo with Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent a week here at the end of May and had an absolutely wonderful time. The condo was lovely and very clean. The beds were comfortable, and the unit had just about anything and everything we could have wanted or needed. It has a washer and dryer which we utilized daily for beach towels and swim suits. The kitchen was well-appointed with what appeared to be brand new appliances and all the plates, platters, cookware, utensils necessary for family meal preparation. Kevin was very responsive throughout the entire process -- readily available to answer questions and provide information as needed. The property itself is older but well-maintained with a huge pool on the premises - perfect for an epic game of Marco Polo. We've generally stayed at resorts/hotels in the past, but we're enthusiastic converts to VRBO and would would highly recommend this specific property for those traveling to the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area.

Best in Orange Beach

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in several of the condos in the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area and have always been happy. However, this time I came by myself, (my wife having been passed away In January) as I needed to have a place to just hang. This turned out to be my favorite stay in all these years. I arrived, went straight in, and everything was perfect. Kevin did call to make sure that everything was as I was expecting. He is a most pleasant landlord. You can't go wrong renting this one. Plan on me again this year Kevin.

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while our daughter was playing in the world series. It's a wonderful condo. The views were awesome. We loved watching the dolphins. The only trouble we had was the gate remote. Called Kevin and he was on it immediately. Texted and called me till it was fixed. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone.

Back Bay Condo Was Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute blast staying at Kevin and Liz's Back Bay Condo in Orange Beach, AL! We stayed a week and had about has much fun as you can cram into that short of time! First of all the condo was awesome! The view from up top (it's the penthouse) was wonderful and the balcony had so much room you could really enjoy eating outside and/or just relaxing and enjoying the view. And the view was spectacular! We watched the boats come and go, we enjoyed the Dolphin's swimming by in the early morning and evenings. We could see the pool and knew exactly when there were kids in there swimming so we knew when it was time to head down and let our Grandson meet some new friends. The location was great also! We brought our waverunner with us, and Kevin gave us instructions on not only where to park it, but where to launch it as well. So we hit all the hot spots via water, like the island beaches, the dock up restaurants, and even got to get over and watch the Grand Championship Billfish Tournament (which my Boss won and netted $370,000 for the largest Blue Marlin!).

All and all we simply enjoyed the accommodations! The layout was perfect, the kitchen was actually usable for food preparation when you didn't want to eat out, like breakfast (which we cooked every morning and ate outside enjoying the view).

We will be heading back again for sure! We have fallen in love with the area and look forward to spending more time down in Orange Beach at Kevin and Liz's condo!!!

We have only been home a week and we are ready to go back!
