About David and Angie Carmichael

Angie and I retired in 2016 and moved to Gulf Shores AL from Ft Smith AR. When we sold our home in Arkansas we invested in Crystal Tower 1701 and totally remodeled the unit. In addition to Crystal Tower 1701 we also own two units at Phoenix All Suites Hotel - Units 310 and 909 which are both East end units and managed by Brett-Robinson. We currently clean and maintain Crystal Tower 1701 and occupy it as our home when it’s not occupied by our guests. This enables us to keep the property updated and pristine as it is our residence as well as a vacation rental to guests. Currently Angie and I also work for the State of Alabama Department of Education driving school buses in Baldwin County. This is our way of giving back to our local community.

Why David and Angie Carmichael chose Gulf Shores

In our opinion no other condo in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach compares with Crystal Tower. With the two outdoor pools and hot tubs, one indoor pool, a sauna and two fitness rooms then coupled with the view from our 17th floor newly remodeled east end unit with two king suites each with its own private bath as well as private balcony. We couldn’t have ever found anything nicer and we are sure you will agree.

What makes this Condo unique

                                                                  This beach home at Crystal Towers is even more beautiful than the pictures. My husband, three boys (15,13, & 10), and I stayed for a week over spring break and had a great time. The beach is beautiful, and we also enjoyed the pools, hot tubs, and sauna. We had everything we needed in the condo to cook some meals, and there were great restaurants nearby when we didn’t want to cook. David and Angie are wonderful hosts. One of my boys left a few items under a dresser. David notified me right away and shipped the items back to us. We have rented homes many times, and I can honestly say this is one of our favorites!!
