Our condominium is located on the 6th floor and has incredible, unobstructed eastern, southern and western views of the beach from the oversized, wraparound balcony.

This it is more of a second home than a traditional rental property. 2017 upgrades include new mattresses in two bedrooms and a new swivel/rocker chair in the living room. Check out our reviews!

The Master Suite is truly luxurious and has a wall of floor to ceiling windows providing an incredible view of the beach. It has a king-size pillow top bed, 32' HDTV, and a sliding glass door that opens to the balcony.

The remaining two bedrooms feature queen-size, pillow top beds with private full bathrooms. Each of these bedrooms is equipped with a 24' HDTV. Remember, one of these bedrooms is gulf front.

The Living Area also has unparalleled views overlooking the beach with access to the balcony. A 40' HDTV and Blu-Ray player are provided in the living room along with a Queen size, sleeper sofa. The adjacent dining room has a large table with seating for six, or you can enjoy dining on the balcony at a bar height table that seats four.

About Marty

From Richmond, Indiana. We intend to spend more time at the condo in the future when we retire. For now, its only a few weeks per year and the rest of the time is available for family, friends, and soon-to-be new friends!

Marty purchased this condo in 2012

Why Marty chose Gulf Shores

We fell in love with this place from our first visit, and were pleased to buy it from the original owners in this complex which was build in 2006. The view is breathtaking. The complex is fantastic. We very much enjoy spending time in the Gulf Shores area.

What makes this condo unique

Two bedrooms have full ocean view and balcony access. Full wrap-around balcony. Awesome, unobstructed Southern view from East to West anywhere in the unit with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Quiet end unit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Can't tell you how much we enjoyed your condo. It was beautiful. Prettiest one I have ever stayed in- very soft and beautiful. Everything was perfect! Will be contacting you again. Loved your menus and everything about places to eat. Wonderful idea!

The perfect place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Gulf Shores and was not sure what to expect. It was the perfect vacation. Gulf Shores is great and Lighthouse 601 is spectacular. It is right on the beach. We were able rent beach cabanas directly in front of the walkway. The pools were a nice break. We grilled one night using the building's grills. The condo itself was bright and beautiful. It was great having a bath for each bedroom, but the best part is the balcony; it is huge and magnificent. The location is the best and the condo is perfect.

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

My family visited Gulf Shores in June and the condo made the experience absolutely wonderful. Not to mention the beach. Yes, the sand really is white and beautiful. The kitchen was the best stocked in any condo or house I've rented. Everything I needed was there. I think I read 3 of the books there and left a couple of mine for others to read. We are already talking about returning next year for our summer vacation. Have a great vacation. If you booked this condo you can't go wrong.

Excellent Condo-Amazing View & Balcony

  • 5 of 5

Visitors: Grandparents and Parents with Children ages 7, 5 and 2. This corner unit condo has such a amazing view with the floor to ceiling windows that wrap from the east side to the gulf front. The master suite has several of the same large windows and the second bedroom does as well. All these windows that are gulf front. Both the master & second bedrooms have separate balcony access. The balcony is so large and wraps from the east side around to the west. It is so nice that you can see the sunrise and the sunset sitting on this balcony and it allows you to be in the shade if you so choose any time during the day and still have an full view of the gulf. The blinds covering these windows are nicest and best functioning I have even had the pleasure of using at the beach. They open fully and operate so smoothly. The inside accommodations are well maintained. The decor is very pleasing with beach accents that are not overdone. We especially appreciated that there was not breakable decor sitting on every table etc, because of the small children. We also appreciated that the plugs had been child proofed. The beds slept well and we enjoyed the nice bed linens.The bathrooms were adequately stocked, and the kitchen was well supplied. We enjoyed the table for six. We spent several nights playing cards with the family. The laundry room was such a nice feature and the HE full size washer and dryer was such a benefit with 7 of us to keep towels etc. maintained. The children loved the zero entry pool and it was very clean. There have been outside improvements since we were there 2 years ago. It is obvious the owners pay attention to the small details in this unit and maintains it as if his family was using it. The owner was always very prompt in his response to any question or request via email and everything was handled just as the owner had said it would be. We truly hope that we can continue to return to this condo each time we spend time Gulf Shores.
