About Sharon Clifton

Steve & I have owned and rented our Romar Place unit since 2002. We live in the Nashville, Tennessee area since 1995 and decided the gulf coast is the perfect place for our family to return year after year. We love the white sand, family friendly beach, and great shopping & restaurants (all in close proximity but not too close). We enjoy renting by owner and will do everything we can to ensure your stay is as enjoyable as possible. Give us a call!

Sharon Clifton purchased this condo in 2002

Why Sharon Clifton chose Alabama

We chose Romar Place because we liked the size of our complex. With only 66 units, the pools, beach and workout facilites are always less crowded. We love the beautiful view of the sunrise as well as the soothing sound of the ocean from our balcony. We also enjoy seeing only ocean from our kitchen table. We can't wait to come back year after year and hope you will too.

What makes this condo unique

Orange Beach is a fantastic beach community and our condo is well situated in relation to Gulf Shores State Park, movie theatres, shopping, outlet malls, amusement parks, putt putt golf, great restaurants, community services and the public library. It is a fantastic location - close enough to everything to be convenient but far enough away to be quiet!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful week we had. We really enjoyed your beautiful home, spent lots of time at the beach and the pool and just had a great time together. Thanks so much for letting us stay here.

Great! Exactly as advertised. Perfect for my family of six.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect. Well stocked with all the essentials and comfortable. The corner balcony was spacious and allowed beautiful views. Beach and pool access could not have been easier. We were not there in peak of summer but in mid May. Parking, elevator, everything was so easy. We had the pool to ourselves and felt like we were the only ones there. So much privacy. No more high rises for us. The beach was clean and family friendly. We had never visited Orange Beach before but the next vacation we can take we will return and hopefully be able to book this condo. Just a nice, relaxing, hassle free place to stay.

Well-appointed, great location, attentive owners

  • 5 of 5

My 3 children (11, 13 & 16), and my mom stayed in this bright, well-appointed, ideally located condo the first wk in April 2017. The 8th floor balcony offered an amazing view. The pools were well-stocked with seating, and proximal. The beach is such a short walk and with the small size of the building, it wasn't as crowded as the high rise areas of the beach. There were a few minor issues that arose, however the owners accommodated IMMEDIATELY with property management coming by with our permission as soon as possible. The pictures are accurate-this condo offers all the amenities anyone could need during their stay at the beach.

Cute condo with a fabulous view!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is decorated so cheery! I love the bright colors! It's located on the 8th floor and sits on the beautiful white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. There was so much to see and do. Some mornings I sat on the balcony and watched the dolphins play in the water right in front of the condo. Other mornings friends and I took long glorious walks on the sandy beach and collected sea shells or we just relaxed in the sun. There were many places to shop and we did that too. We also went to a lot of great restaurants. The area is full of them and they all have their own specialties. But most of all I loved the sunsets. Orange Beach has the most phenomenal sunsets you have ever seen!

Sharon, the owner, was very friendly and helpful right from the start. I had a few issues that came up while I was there and within 24 hours she had someone at my door always with my permission. I'm very happy I found this place to rent for my winter get-away. I loved the whole experience.

Owner's Response: We do our best to keep our unit updated and comfortably and cheerfully furnished. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our home-away-from-home! We regret the washer machine's ball bearings were going bad during your stay but we make every effort to address the occasional but inevitable issues which arise. As you preferred not to have the inconvenience of replacement during your stay, we replaced the washing machine (and the microwave - worked fine but had a cracked plastic vent) the week after you checked out. We appreciate feedback on issues encountered as that allows us to replace or repair items as needed. We are pleased you will be coming back again next February - March and look forward to welcoming you again!

Great beach stay

  • 5 of 5

First time stay at this location. The condo was great and provided a lot of flexibility in terms of sleeping options. Location was convenient to all of our activities and convenient to several stores and markets. The wrap around porch provided plenty of great views including the outdoor pool which was great for checking in on folks either at the beach or the pool. No complaints - really nice vacation stay.

We agree with you that the placement of our unit's balcony, within the complex, provides fantastic views and is also great for checking on everyone's location. We hope you will come back again soon!

Very nice!

  • 3 of 5

The unit itself was very nice. The view was gorgeous! There was plenty of reading material available. Everything was in order. But a neighboring unit was remodeling, and the noise was rather disturbing for most of the week.

Owner's Response: We agree that out unit and complex is wonderful! We are sorry one of the owners was renovating their unit during your stay. Our policy is to notify all renters any time overall complex work will be occurring during a possible stay so that the renter is aware of possible noise issues before booking. However, we have no control over when individual owners choose to work on their units and we are also not given any notification of such work. There is, however, a noise regulation which limits the work occurring to day time hours. Again, we are sorry the work occurring during the day in the other unit detracted from your experience in our unit.
