About Gina & Rudi

These two are the reason we're still here... and we're sure glad we are.

Gina & Rudi purchased this condo in 1996

Why Gina & Rudi chose Orange Beach

We bought pre-construction, initially impressed by the quality of construction and the reputation of the builder.

In 1996, this was a newly developing area, and for this reason, today, it is an upscale area, closer to newer shopping and restaurants. We liked it then and we like it now.

What makes this condo unique

The kids (and friends, of course) enjoy the indoor pool, all year round. Tennis can get a little breezy, but on a calm night (and nights are usually calm), it's great.

If you've got kids, it's so handy, on the 2nd floor, but not over the pool, being able to walk out or sit out on the balcony and check on them from time to time, without having to deal with typical pool noise.

The indoor pool is on our floor, as well. We've found it an all around great setup for kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

George,

What a blessing our little trip to the beach. We had great weather - not a drop of rain that we saw. Mostly sunny with just rolling clouds. Sparsely populated - which is how we like it. I'll be mailing you the keys plus one knife that is making the trip to Raymond in the pan of rice krispie treats. Jimmy said he could have stayed another day or two - unusual for the non-beach guy. Thanks for being so easy to deal with.

Lesley

Summertime Fun

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in your condo. It was just right for the 6 (Grandparents, Parents and children) of us. The weather was perfect and having the indoor pool on the same floor was so convenient. With mornings spent down by the ocean, the kids always wanted to move to the indoor pool when they wanted to get out of the sun. The location was convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, the movie theater, and arcade. If I had any complaint, it would be the lack of bakeware (pans) and mixing bowls or large bowls in the kitchen and not having a rocker/recliner in the living room. With a little one, we usually make most meals and eat in the condo so those items would help. But, we survived, loved our stay, and our littlest one got to use all of his dump trucks, excavators, and shovels in the sand. Thanks for sharing your place with our family.

Property was great!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful! We loved how it was decorated! The beds were comfortable and all the rooms felt big and spacious. We loved the balcony and the view!

The security guard, Robert, that worked at the building was super nice and helpful. He even helped us push our luggage up to our room!

Overall, we had a great stay and would love to come back!
