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. 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 rented. This enables us to keep the property pristine as it is our residence as well as a vacation rental to guests. We also each 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

No other condo in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach has the amenities of Crystal Tower. Also, we are local so any issues you may have during your stay can be handled promptly. Angie and I also do our own cleaning so no detail is overlooked.

Nice views

Property was as described or maybe even better. Loved everything about the unit, including the coffee maker. Having 2 master suites was a definite plus for 2 couples sharing the unit. Stunning views, comfortable beds and nice TVs.
