Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Queen sofa bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

You will enjoy A FRONT LINE GULF UNIT with granite in the kitchen and bar, HDTV, tile floors in kitchen and part of spacious living area.

Welcome to your condo on Perdido Key!

This condo offers 1,390 square feet of space, unusually spacious for a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condo on the Key.

Just a 45 second walk directly in front of your two elevators to the beautiful powder-soft, white-sand Perdido Key beach.

We sleep up to six: There is a queen bed in the spacious master retreat, two single beds in the guest room, and a queen sofa bed in the living room.

This immaculate and inviting condominium on the penthouse floor is a well-appointed place where you will have fun in the sun, enjoy a leisure walk on the beach, watch a beautiful sunset and at the end of the day relax in the comfort of your own home.

Our floor to ceiling glass runs across 85% of the long, Gulf-facing dining and living area, offering a stupendous and unobstructed Gulf view.

Lots of advertisements say they are 'close to the beach,' but here the beach is literally just steps away, with no streets to cross. You are right there! Our guests repeatedly say that’s why you take a beach vacation.

Your master retreat enjoys a view of Ole River and Perdido Bay from our 10th floor location. The master also has an en suite vanity area and an unusually deep and large whirlpool bath.

The complex contains three buildings. Our West building and the next door East building each possess an easily accessible beach walkway and beachfront pool. Our West building pool is state of the art zero entry.

There's also a large hot tub at the ground floor of the East building. The Riverside building boasts a pool located adjacent to the serene Ole River. The beach access walkways, all three pools and hot tub are available to all complex guests.

The complex boat/fishing/sunset-watching dock and large, easy-to-use boat launching ramp are on the Ole River adjacent to the Riverside building pool area. Free boat dockage and trailer storage are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Guests also enjoy two lighted tennis courts.

A large and fully-equipped exercise room with TV (and Gulf and pool views) is on the ground floor of our building.

The SeaSpray complex is easy to find – immediately west of the tallest building on the west part of Perdido Key and 1.25 miles east of the renowned Flora-Bama Bar at the Florida-Alabama boundary.

This large condo is definitely a 'home away from home' with all imaginable amenities.

The central dehumidifier and ceiling fans leave you in comfort without having to blast the HVAC system.

Broadband DSL through Comcast cable local area network offers 100.00 mbps instant internet connections for your laptop. We have wifi connectivity. Three TVs including an HDTV, cable, DVD, VCR, and CD keep you well entertained while not at the beach or area attractions.

A full kitchen, with granite countertops, flat-top stove, microwave, ice maker, dishwasher and all dishware, cookware and utensils, is included for your convenience. There is a separate dining area with table comfortably seating six. Bed linens and other necessities are provided for your care-free holiday. A washer and dryer make packing easy. Onsite parking is available.

Try al freso breakfast and dinners on our balcony with its table and four chairs.

Bonus! Take the family on a long excursion from our beach to the east to enjoy the long Gulf Beach State Park. There is no better way to enjoy the beautiful scenery and pristine beach while you are also getting some fun exercise.

The rental truly provides more than you expect and everything you could possibly need for your vacation. The quaint and not-overly-developed Perdido Key is the perfect get-away destination to relax. The sugar-white, powder-soft beaches are a sight to behold, as is the clear navy-blue-to-turquoise-to-emerald-green water.

From the beach and especially from our balcony and Gulf front windows, dolphins can often be seen playing. Blue herons, sea gulls and sand pipers are visible at almost anytime from our high perch. In fact, sea gulls often fly within 15 feet of our floor to ceiling windows.

Golf! There are numerous Championship Golf Courses within a short distance of SeaSpray including Arnold Palmer's Lost Key, Kiva Dunes, The Peninsula Club, Gulf State Park, and Sportsman's Golf Club (former site of the PGA's Pensacola Open).

Activities include hiking, biking, fishing from our Ole River dock, surf fishing, deep sea fishing, jet skiing, sail boating, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and wind surfing. We are a convenient, 0.75 mile drive to a convenience store and several excellent restaurants, 10 minutes east or west to supermarkets.

Spend a day doing absolutely nothing on your beach or enjoying the many area attractions. Then come home to an elegant space with a stupendous view.

You've earned a great get away.

Do not wait to book your time on Perdido Key.

About The Owner

Hi! We searched hard for a decent photo and finally selected this one from our January 2012 snowy, 25-hour train ride from Kiev to Budapest where there was everything but Perdido Key sunshine. Shelley, with masters degrees in international relations and special education, is an educational consultant for parents of special needs children. She taught such children for about 14 years in a university setting. Bill, an attorney, first got the itch for the Gulf coast when his parents took his family there almost yearly for vacations. We often get away from Tennessee late on Friday, enjoy a restful recharge day at the beach and leave Sunday afternoon for the drive back home for work. We are very happy to share our place with you. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Bill

Why The Owner chose Perdido Key

While we lived abroad, Bill had the good fortune to have parents who visited Perdido Key and watched for condo purchase opportunities. Shelley knew Florida from growing up there and attending college in Orlando. From 5,000 miles away and sight unseen, we chose the penthouse floor for the view, the SeaSpray building for its right-on-the-beach location, Perdido Key because it's a beautiful and pristine island shared by Alabama (about 10%) and Florida (the rest). Shelley coordinated the décor via mail and, arriving from overseas in December 1983, we were pleased with the result and among the first SeaSpray owners to overnight in the brand new west building, then the tallest structure on Perdido Key. As you will see in the wall print in the master bath, hurricane Ivan visited us just after Labor Day in 2004. Due to problems at the complex, we were only able to return to the condo in spring of 2008! But much of the place is now almost brand new and you will see the positive results of Shelley’s redecorating.

What makes this condo unique

For years, while working abroad and living in rented homes, we dreamed of owning a place on the beach. Perdido Key has all it takes for a great beach visit or extended stay – warm summers with cooling breezes, perfect spring and fall weather, and mild winters, surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and life. There is so much to see and do here. The problem will be fitting everything in! You'll soak, roast, take long beach walks, meet new people, shop and sigh. Eat from the local seafood restaurants like pigs, sleep like babies. Seafood does taste better here, and you'll find yourselves going to bed early because you're exhausted, and getting up early because there is so much you want to do! And our sunrises and sunsets are truly estupendo.

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived around 9:00pm on a Saturday evening so we weren't knocked off our feet until the morning. We pulled back those drapes and WOW! Gorgeous views! The condo was in perfect condition as well as the property itself. The kitchen is fully stocked with appliances and cooking needs, you just need to provide the food. There are plenty of towels, sheets and blankets. My girls (12 & 6) had a wonderful time playing in the pool and on the beach. We saw so much ocean life including HUGE crabs, dolphins, cranes, ghost crabs and a ton of mermaid purses. Bill and Shelley provided great communication along with an awesome condo guide that included a ton of information. Loved that the condo was located outside of the more populated areas yet still close enough to enjoy. We have a timeshare in Gulf Shores but this was a great change of pace. Would definitely recommend this property and we will definitely use them in the future.

Beautiful view, great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at this Sea Spray condo! The owner was wonderful to work with, and everything was just as he described it. We loved the floor-to-ceiling windows, plus the two sliding glass doors. It makes such a difference in the view - completely unobstructed. If it's raining or too windy, you can sit inside and still enjoy a perfect ocean view. The condo was very clean, very well-equipped, and the bed was comfortable. We ate at the Shrimp Basket a couple of times - you must try the hush puppies - and Lillian's Pizza was also a hit! We were able to keep our wave runners at the Sea Spray Riverfront, although they were working on re-building the dock, so we just kept them trailered in the parking area. That was fine, though. One day was calm enough to ride in the ocean, and we saw dozens of dolphin and sting rays as well. The dolphin were swimming all around us, jumping in the air, going under our wave runners - it was really something. The water was clear so you could see them all over the place. We also rode through the canals at Ono Island, as well as Pensacola Bay. Great area! Perdido Key is a beautiful place - not overdeveloped like so many beaches in the panhandle. Highly recommend this condo! :-)

What a View!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely condo! We had a terrific time and enjoyed the windows so much. We spotted dolphins from the comfort of an easy chair while sipping our coffee. The beach had minimal activity and we didn't even mind a little thunderstorm or two. It doesn't get much better than that. Such a peaceful, friendly place.

This was our first trip to Perdido Key and we could not have chosen a better place. We brought my 14yr old son & his friend with plans to just relax. From the moment we walked into the condo and pushed back those curtains all we could talk about was THE VIEW. The condo was perfect. The beds & couch were comfortable. The ghost house next door was the topic of conversation many times through out the week. We even were lucky enough to speak to the owner. The sand was clean & the water was clear. We were concerned because some friends had been in O.B. the week before and could net get in water due to jelly fish. On our arrival day we had the blue moon which created a larger high tide & the boys loved the bigger waves. That first day on the beach we carried everything down and then back up to the condo. That evening we noticed people were leaving their tents, chairs, and toys and the next morning realized nothing had been bothered. The rest of the week we did the same thing, and nothing was every bothered or stolen. Family atmosphere, people were casually drinking but never saw anyone get out of hand. We could sit on the patio and watch the boys playing on the beach. One afternoon the boys had forgotten their ball and sent us back to the condo. A gentleman stopped us on the way back & said one of the boys had stepped on a fishing hook. He helped him but wanted us to just be aware. The whole week I felt relaxed knowing that everyone there was just there to spend time with their families and would look out for one another. The condo was perfect for what we needed. Large master bedroom, bath, and that tub is HUGE. Enjoyed the convenience of the washer and dryer. Located close (10 min) to many restaurants & stores but you will have to drive, most are not within walking distance. The owner Bill was a delight to work with from the moment I first spoke with him. His email gave us travel info as far as best exit for gas, where to stop for food, as well as places to see while in P. Key. We visited and recommend Blue Dolphin Cruises, Pensacola Blue Wahoos Baseball (cheap & lots of kid friendly themes), USS Alabama (visit early it gets hot hot), Bubba's Seafood House, Hurricane Grill & Wings, kids favorite was playing afternoon bingo at Florabama Lounge. Several times we asked the kids if they wanted to do the tourist trap stuff & they kept saying no they just wanted to play at the beach. We had to beg them to go out to eat at night. Cheapest vacation ever for us.
