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 Alabama

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.

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.

When I walked in I was surprising shocked at how big the condo was. I loved the big kitchen and it had everything you would ever need. The master bedroom and bathroom was also huge with separate shower and jacuzzi tub. Huge closet. Loved the lay out and the view. Perfect. We will stay there again. Eloise was also wonderful and very helpful!

I chose this condo because of the size, view, location, and furnishings. None of it disappointed. Everything was clean and in great condition - loved the new sofas with recliners. There were beach items in a closet on the balcony - chairs, umbrellas, boogies boards - that we took advantage of.

Beds were very comfortable with extra pillows and blankets if needed. Well stocked kitchen with lots of space. Great to have a full size washer and dryer instead of small stacked set. Having a window in the 2nd bedroom that provided natural light was welcome by my kids. The tv's are newer and large.

Loved being able to eat all of our meals on the balcony and watch the people, surf and dolphins. We grabbed food from S & S Seafood market to bring back. On two separate days we saw dolphins swimming not too far from the beach.

I highly recommend this condo. Eloise, the owner, is great and makes sure that everything is thought of. When we return, this is where we will stay.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great Condo! Wonderfully furnished, great balcony, and kudos to the owner for having a very nice mattress for the master bed! This is my second year in a row to stay at AQ and it's definitely better than the average condo down there.
