The Lighthouse complex offers the best amenities in Gulf Shores. Our unit includes all developer upgrades featuring tile floors throughout, granite counter tops in the kitchen and baths, and an upgraded stainless steel kitchen appliance package.

This unit is recently repainted, refurnished and well maintained for the rental market because the owners (and their friends/family) use it 5-6 months of the year themselves.

The private master bathroom features a his and her vanity, large walk-in closet, large jetted whirlpool garden tub, and separate shower.

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.

The Kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, stove, side by side refrigerator/freezer with in door ice/water dispenser, toaster, blender, coffee maker, mixer, and a bar with seating for 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!

Why Marty chose Alabama

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.

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.

The perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The balcony here is unbelievable! The condo is clean, well appointed, and very comfortable. We enjoyed watching the dolphins several mornings and welcomed the moon rising every evening. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our Gulf Shores vacation. We found Marty to be very helpful with a quick response to any of our questions. This is our third visit and won't be our last!♡

This is the most beautiful, clean, perfect rental condo we've ever had! The view is simply breathtaking! The windows all along the 85 foot balcony were the ultimate in water-front views. Granite counter tops in all the bathrooms and kitchen are classy. I LOVE the 6 foot counter space around the dual sinks in the master bathroom. Perfect for hair dryer and all my "lotions and potions"! The little touches (i.e. motion sensor night light) make this condo everything any one could want. All of the decorations, bedspreads, towels, couches, chairs are top quality. The kitchen cooking supplies are tremendous---much more than I'd ever want to cook on vacation!

The dish ware sets were plentiful for all 6 of us. The ceiling fans in each bedroom and the main living room help keep the AC temp reasonable. The master bathroom has a rain-head shower head. The complex: the 6th floor has wonderful views in 3 different directions! The elevators were fast and the complex does recycle----a definite plus! Pools and hot tub perfect. We can't wait to return!
