About Eloise Thomley

My husband, Wayne, and I sold our business in Northwest Alabama in 2005 and moved to the Gulf Coast. We love the ocean, the weather, the seafood, the white sand, the palm trees, and the slow pace. We also love being close to our condo so we can make sure everything is in good working order and clean for our guests. We feel blessed to have become acquainted with so many wonderful people from all over the United States through the rental of our condo!

Eloise Thomley purchased this condo in 2001

Why Eloise Thomley chose Orange Beach

We chose Admiral's Quarters before it was built in 2001 because of the location in Orange beach and because of the size of the rooms. Our condo is 1,520 square feet of living space with two very spacious bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. The master closet is so big, our two grandchildren made a bed and tent and slept there when they were small. Our balcony is 680 square feet, large enough for a dining table, four comfortable chairs, a lounge chair with table and lamp and another reclining chair with foot stool. We also love the view of the Gulf from our balcony and the short walk to the water's edge.

What makes this condo unique

Admiral's Quarters is close to several marinas for those who love deepsea fishing or a dolphin cruise. It is also within 5 minutes to three major grocery chains and more locally owned restaurants than I can count, all with wonderful fresh seafood. Our outdoor pool is huge and so is the Gulf front indoor pool. We like the fitness room and the sauna, especially in cool months. There is a medical center in the nearest shopping center in case of emergencies.

A beautiful property and excellent unit!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in this unit! The owner has made it comfortable with lots of extras to welcome guests. The kitchen is stocked with anything you could possibly need. Excellent furnishings. Plenty of seating and bedding. And nice seating areas even on the deck (important for us!). The owner is extremely friendly and helpful and easy to reach. We'll definitely return!

Wonderful direct ocean front view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this condo. It was very clean, comfortable, spacious and beautifully decorated. Comfortable bed, couches, everything in good condition. We were as comfortable here as we are in our own home. The owner was very easy to work with and to contact. We had no problems or complaints during our stay. Enjoyed every minute of it...even the 2 cool, rainy days we had. Spent lots of time on the balcony and ate lots of steamed red shrimp from Lartigue's. Highly recommend this property and will definitely return next time we're in Orange Beach.

tremendous gulf front property

  • 5 of 5

This was an outstanding gulf front property. First, it has a very large deck. If you have someone who cannot go to the beach all the time, the views are great from the deck and you can even see the sunrise here. The condo is Luxurious. It is very comfortable and the furnishings are magnificent. It is centrally located so that one can enjoy all the sites close by, such as Bellingrath Gardens by ferry, the local zoo which is interactive with animals, Blue Angels and of course, a magnificent beach that is extremely clean. The owner is there to help you with any need you have including weather reports before you go. She has EVERYTHING you need to have a great time including a full stock of beach chairs and play things for all ages. The kitchen has everything you need and then some. Of course the nearby restaurants are wonderful. If you are going to Alabama beaches, this is where you need to stay.

Owner's Response: Wow! What a great review! Thank you Bill and your family for choosing our condo. I am so glad you mentioned all the local attractions such as the ferry ride from Fort Morgan to Dauphin Island, the "Little Zoo that Could" and the magnificent Blue Angels in nearby Pensacola. I hope you get to come back as soon as possible! Eloise

Such a lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the nicest condo that I have had the pleasure of staying in. Everything was so neat and tidy and super comfortable. The kitchen is very large and has anything you could possibly need. The beds were great. The views are amazing. The deck is extremely large and comfortable. We ate almost every meal outside on the deck. The beach is super clean and nice. It was honestly more like being a guest in someone's home than renting a condo. The owner is lovely and very helpful. We never had any problems, but if I needed to reach her, I wouldn't have had any problem. Great places to visit: Adventure Island; National Naval Aviation Museum (Pensacola). We also went on a fishing charter with Hudson Marina. We enjoyed meals at The Shrimp Basket, The Crab Trap, and Big Wave Dave's. I highly recommend The Crab Trap if you have small children. There is a playground behind the restaurant and you can enjoy your meal on the deck while the kids play. We also did some souvenir shopping at Alvin's. There is also a local zoo that we didn't get a chance to visit. Maybe on our next trip!!

Owner's Response: Julia, I am so very happy you and your family chose our condo for your vacation. I know your little five year old had such a joyous time, When checking on the condo, we saw two little handprints and wanted to keep them there because they brought back memories of when our little ones are there. I'm glad you enjoyed so many of our wonderful restaurants and activities. Please come back as soon as possible! Eloise

Back the third time!

  • 5 of 5

Third time was another charm! Very clean as usual, all the amenities that one would need! We felt right at home, beautiful view of the gulf, only a few steps to the beach to soak up the sun! Eloise is always very accommodating and we will be back!

My first ever beach condo rental was a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Having never rented a beach condo before, I have nothing to compare it to, but my family assured me that this condo was really a great find. Eloise was a wonderful hostess checking on us shortly after our arrival and offering any assistance needed. The condo(according to my children who have rented condos before)was a really nice size, bigger than most. It was very clean, beautifully decorated and comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed and and huge. All in all, a really great first experience. We will definitely be back next year. Thanks Eloise and Wayne. You absolutely have an amazing place.
