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.

The Master Suite is truly luxurious and has a wall of floor to ceiling windows providing an incredible view of the beach.

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.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a large laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer with iron, ironing board and vacuum.

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.

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.

Hurricane Irma

  • 5 of 5

We decided not to stay at the condo the week of September 9 thru September 16, 2017, because of Hurricane Irma. We weren't sure which direction she was headed, or how much damage would be done. So to be on the safe side, we cancelled and are re-scheduling for next year. Marty was so GREAT to work with, we were in contact constantly about the storm. He understood our concerns and said he would work with us for next year. I'm thinking maybe, June! HAHA

AMAZING condo and condo complex directly on the beach with beautiful views of the beach and ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to Gulf Shores and the first time we stayed in a condo. The Lighthouse condo building is large and contains all the amenities you would expect in a high quality building. The unit, located on the 6th floor was simply amazing! With an 85' long, wrap-around balcony, the views up and down the beach will not disappoint! We spent many hours lounging on the balcony watching the dolphins swim by, beach goes playing in the water and kids of all ages playing in the gorgeous white sand. (This is some of the nicest, cleanest and whitest sand you will ever see in the USA) When your ready for a change of pace, head to one of the pools and enjoy a swim r float!

The unit is well equipped with all the appliances, dishes, glasses and TV's you would ever need. We chose to make breakfast and lunch in the condo and out to one of the local restaurants for dinners. Speaking of restaurants, if you like to walk a bit, you will find several which you can walk to. THE best one is just down the beach and offers a great selection of grilled and fresh seafood - Bills on The Beach should be on your list.

Marty was very good to work with as he was responsive to our questions. We look forward to working with him on our next trip back to Gulf Shores!

Have stayed here 4 times

  • 5 of 5

Being on the 6th floor and being on the end is the best that is offered. The porch wraps around to the side and you can see the street and beyond that we travel on. The unit itself is beautiful and quite roomy. Having the washer and dryer is a great plus and there are always ome exra sand toys and a chair or two to use on the beach. Decorated very nicely and as I said above whe have been is this unit 4 times and will continue to pick this unit again.

Plus the fact that Gulf Shores is just the best beach ever and so much to do with families and kids or just adults.
