About the Property
Condo, 2 King Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
It is perfectly located only 1 mile from the Hangout and Hwy. 59. I can provide additional pictures of the building and its amenities, if you would like.
Do not confuse 'Crystal Shores West' with the older building called 'Crystal Shores'.... or with the Crystal Tower (which is located across the street from the beach).
When you compare other units in Crystal Shores West please note that mine has custom drapes, upgraded stainless appliances and flooring, tray ceilings in the kitchen and bathroom, crown molding, new neutral area rug, and a fun beachy theme. It is 1,100 square feet of comfort! There are 4 floors of covered parking beneath, and best of all located on the 4th floor, giving quick access to put you right onto the beach, yet high enough for fantastic views of the beautiful blue water and white sand, along with great viewing of dolphin, rays and other sea-life.
You will be so pleased with the comfy atmosphere that greets you. I update my condo every 6 months, so it looks and feels new and fresh! Bed Bath and Beyond is a favorite of mine! The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need if you want to cook. There is a new crock pot, hand mixer, nice matching china and glasses and wine glasses. Nice matching everyday plates and silverware. Full sets of pans, pots and bowls. Stainless cuisinart coffee maker and toaster. We make sure it is all high end ready for your every whim! We spent the months of November- the end of February '17 at the condo deep cleaning, re-decorating and putting in a new ceramic tile walk-in shower. It has a shower tower with spa jets, waterfall, rain-head and hand-held features. Great seat to relax. I also bought all new bedding, adding a new posture-pedic king bed in the guest room and added a great lounger on the balcony. We also managed to find lots of great beach time, boating and golf! The weather was gorgeous. It was so hard to leave, as always!
The view is breathtaking, and is visable from the living room, dining area, kitchen and master bedroom!! Just step onto the balcony and look for miles up and down the beautiful white beaches and turquoise blue waters. The guest bedroom has a view of the lagoon on the north side of the building.
Our new condo is a comfortable retreat. The furnishings include a new cozy couch and lounger, area rug, fun art work, sleek dining room table and chairs, new 55'" flat-screen in the great-room, flatscreens in both bedrooms, and room-darkening custom draperies. We now have many many more sports, movie and sirius music channels on the 3 flat screen tvs, due to a cable upgrade for the complex. Both bedrooms have king beds, each with upgraded bedding that not only looks great but feels great too. Each have a high quality mattress that gives you the great sleep we all want when on vacation.
It is one of the few units with stainless steel appliances (refrigerator has in the door ice/water), and upgraded flooring (beautiful tile throughout!) We added under cabinet lighting that is great when cooking or just for ambiance.
We made sure to provide the little niceties we look for when travelling; a well equipped kitchen, beach towels and toys, beach chairs and an umbrella, cleaners, folding chairs, etc. (all to make packing easier and save you time and money).
It has a great location on the 4th floor, so there is quick and easy access to the beach, pools, gym and game room.
This complex has a full time management company and security, located on the premises. They are friendly and helpful. And the presence of the security is very reassuring whenever we're on vacation!
If you would like to see additional pictures just let me know and I will e-mail them to you.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: I enjoyed helping people during my 27 years as a certified financial planner. After retiring 6 years ago, I found myself missing my relationships with my clients. I decided I wanted to fulfill a lifelong dream of buying a condo on the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores and go back to work. I've been regularly coming to Gulf Shores over the past 20+ years, as my sister lives in Mobile. I purchased my beautiful 'Home Away from Home' and started my business of condo rentals. I've been able to put my years of serving the public to good use in yet a different way. My guests have been wonderful, and I strive to help them by providing a very cost efficient way to stay in luxury accommodations. Since I've spent so much time in the area, I am able to provide many tips that only the locals know about. Call me, and let me know how I can assist you in making this stay in my 'home away from home' your best vacation experience ever.
Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
I looked diligently for over a year, spending hours and hours with my realtor, until he finally found exactly what I was looking for. The location is perfect, the beaches are gorgeous, I needed to be able to see the Gulf from the kitchen sink, large spacious rooms, crown moldings with no popcorn ceilings, a knock out view from the huge balcony and top notch ammenities. I drove him crazy, but in the end, it's perfect!!! I LOVE my condo and know you will too!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
It is perfectly located just one mile from the fun activities of the intersection at Highway 59. There are several great restaurants and shopping with-in walking distance. I particularly love that this is one of the newest and nicest buildings on the Alabama coast. It has wonderful amenities, not the least of which is the fabulous staff that is present all day to assist you with any needs. I also like how quickly I can be on the beach with my lower level unit. It is a wonderful, plush “home away from home” that is available at very competitive prices.
