About the property

Condominium - 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 4-6)

Right in the midst of everything that orange beach and Gulf shores has to offer, this very comfortable 2 bedroom condo sits on the beach with a side view from the balcony. With a well stocked kitchen, flat screen TV, and comfortable beds our condo is ready for your vacation.

The area features great concerts, shopping & dining at the Wharf, Festivals like The Shrimp Festival & The Hangout Festival, Amusements such as the world famous 'Little ZooThat Could', The Track, Waterville and much, much more. There is also fantastic restaurants, golf, charter boats, fishing, dolphin cruises, sailing, parasailing, shopping outlets, movies, tennis, night clubs and of course there is the Gulf Shores State Park...

Then there is the beach, my favorite. Just pull up a beach chair, pop up the umbrella, look, listen and relax. Wow! If I have to sell you on that, you have never done the beach properly. The unit is just 3.5 miles east of the Highway 59 and 182 junction in Gulf shores on Highway 182. We set up our condo up like a place we would want to stay and now we invite you to come stay at our place.

Very Enjoyable Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was decorated very nicely and it was well stocked with kitchen necessities. The queen bed was exceptionally comfortable and the convenience of having a TV in every room was great! The owner was very nice and great to work with. Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay!

Great location - and very clean condo

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 6 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The condo is spacious and well laid out. The living room/dining area was great for entertaining another couple we met in the area, and it has a very workeable kitchen, with adequate counterspace, cabinets and a storage pantry. The appliances all worked well.

Its location right on the beach and close to an access point for the State Park biking and walking trail system, were what attracted us in the first place... and we weren't disappointed.

We've already arranged to rent this great condo for our 2018 snowbirding vacation.

Owner's Response: Shane I checked in unannounced immediately following your stay. I thought the unit was extremely clean upon arrival. I did find that some maintenance issues needed to be addressed and paint was needed which we are addressing now. Did you guys clean it while you were there?

Condo was clean and reasonably priced. It has close beach access and was near shopping and restaurants. Parking was easy. We had a question about something in the condo during our stay and Barry responded immediately to help us. We would definitely stay here again!

My family and I rented the unit for our Spring Break get away. The unit was very clean and had everything we needed. We had four adults and one child and the condo worked well for us. The location was great, it is right on the beach. Easy and convenient access to restaurants and shopping in Orange Beach. Barry was great to work with. We would definitely stay here again!
