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


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.

We have been staying at The Palms and this co do for about five years now. The owners, Gina and Rudi are great to work with. The condo is very comfortable. The new den furniture was a good upgrade. The view each morning is awesome. We are looking forward to next year already.

Owner's Response: Hi Mike, It is always a pleasure to have you guys at our place. We are so glad you had an enjoyable stay. The view and the large balcony are our favorites, it's like your on the beach without the sand:) We are painting the entire unit now, so you can look forward to a fresh look this year. Have a great 2018 & see you at the beach soon! Rudi & Gina

Great condo! Minor details to modify.

  • 4 of 5

This condo was in a great location-convenient on second floor for my 75 year old parents to get to with beautiful view of ocean. Very nice and clean. Just a few minor details that could improve-the tv had several remotes a little difficult to figure out and turn on. Kitchen pans could improve if you plan to cook, and door to porch was hard to open. Also details from owner said check in was at 4pm and checkout was at 10am- vrbo app said times were different. There wasn't clear instruction on what to do with linens on checkout day. Could use a bit of update but was still a great visit.

Owner's Response: You are right Priscilla. Thanks for the feedback and we are continuously improving the condo and we will address your issues immediately. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the place worked well for your parents too. Warm wishes, Rudi & Gina

The owners need to provide a wagon to haul stuff to the beach. Also a fan is needed on the patio.

The property is nice as is the building. The gym needs to be bigger.

Owner's Response: Hi Debbie, Thanks for your feedback. We hope you enjoyed your stay. Well, we can work on the wagon but adding a fan on the patio or extending the gym is a little tough, that is very well managed by the HOA. Thanks for letting us know. Gina & Rudi
