Luxurious Studio Condo, Gulf Front Beach Access, Orange Beach, Ole River Fishing

Location, Luxury, and Amenities - this studio condo with Gulf front beach access, and Ole River access, sleeps up to four guests or a small family !

Located one mile East of the Alabama Point Bridge, this Old River second story studio condo has travertine tile, a 50" 4K / HDTV with cable / Netflix / Pandora, complimentary Wi-Fi, ColbieBlue blue tooth speaker / charging station, in room key code MESA personal security safe, luxurious Sealy hybrid gel / foam queen Murphy bed, custom cabinetry, granite tops, stainless appliances, custom recessed lighting, and more !


'The location could not be better. It's in the middle

of everything.' -- Lindsey Spear, Daphne, Alabama


Extensive Lei Lani amenities include two outdoor pools, indoor beachfront heated pool, tennis court, outdoor grills and picnic areas, Old River access, pedestrian cross light for convenient and safe crossing of Perdido Beach Boulevard, full Gulf beach access, gazebo style picnic areas at Ole River, and on the Gulf front beach, beachside bathroom and changing areas, beachfront chair and umbrella rentals, and more.

Walking from the unit to the beach is quick and convenient. Your feet are 'in the sand' in less than three minutes (we have timed the walk and this is the longest it could possibly take to get to the beach !)

Built in phases since 1983, the family friendly Lei Lani condo complex is one of the few developments on Perdido Key that is located both on the beach and Old River. This unit is located in the 'village' portion of the complex, situated half way between the beach and Old River. The interior has been completely upgraded, and the exterior has brand new balconies, railings, steel roof, siding, and fresh paint.


'In one day, my son and I went crabbing in Old River, played

tennis, rented a chair and umbrella on the beach, and swam in the indoor heated pool, - this place is terrific.' -- Dan Landis, Mobile, Alabama


The 400 square foot studio comfortably sleeps two adults on the queen Murphy bed. The luxurious bed is made by Sealy Posturepedic, with SealyCushion Foam, CoreSupport Center, reinforced gel, and SolidEdge HD System, which helps maximize the sleeping surface of the mattress while also providing a seating edge for your convenience. This may be the most comfortable bed you will ever sleep on !

There is also an Ashley Furniture Queen Sleeper Sofa, with an upgraded premium queen sleeper mattress, to informally accommodate additional guests.

Ideally, this luxury studio is best for one or two adults, or a small family. As there is only 400 square feet of living space, capacity is strictly limited. Generally, we limit capacity for this studio unit to four or less adults, or a small family.

Please confirm prior to booking that this unit has sufficient space for your needs / guests, as space is extremely limited. If you need more space, check out our 2/2 at Phoenix on the Bay, VRBO 513462 which has plenty of room for more guests.

This studio unit includes a full kitchen with all dining accessories, with complimentary starter supplies of soap, shampoo, detergent, and paper products. All towels, linens, pillows, and blankets are provided with your stay (bring your own beach towels or blankets).


'I walked in the door to the condo, and simply said 'wow,

this place is really nice.''

- - Joe Milam, Mobile, Alabama


Views from your private covered balcony include views of Old River, the Alabama Point bridge, Gulf State park property, and the Gulf (all of which are in the distance).

However, full Gulf front beach access is available, and there is a pedestrian cross light for convenient access across Perdido Beach Boulevard. This unit is convenient to both Ole River (for fishing and the beautiful Ole River front pool) and the sugar white Gulf front beaches.

In addition to the multiple on-site amenities of Lei Lani, and the luxurious accommodations of the studio, Orange Beach and Perdido Key is a vacation dream for you and your family.

Why James Dorgan chose Orange Beach East

Location, Luxury, Amenities, and finally, PRICE ! Lei Lani Village is ideally situated along the narrow strip of beach between the Alabama Point bridge and the Alabama Florida state line, which arguably boasts the most beautiful 2 mile stretch of sugar white sands and aqua marine waters in the State of Alabama. The condo is completely updated, with travertine tile, flatscreen TV, granite and stainless, and modern bathroom. The complex has multiple pools, tennis, and includes access to both the Gulf and Ole River. Finally, the price for the studio cannot be better. You are able to have a small, but luxurious room in the heart of Orange Beach, with fantastic interior upgrades, for an extremely competitive price.

What makes this condo unique

Crabbing, fishing and catching minnows for the kids at Ole River. Boat watching from bar stools overlooking Ole River. Safe and easy crossing of boulevard to gulf front beaches, with beachside restrooms, indoor and outdoor pools, raised walkway across dunes, umbrella and chair rentals, all without paying Gulf front prices.

Perfect for a couple or small family

  • 5 of 5

This unit is perfect. The booking process was simple. Keyless entry. Covered parking. The unit was clean and comfortable. Giant HDTV. In room safe. Blue tooth speaker with charging station. All travertine tile, stainless and granite. AC was ice cold. Bed was the best we have ever slept on. Easy access to Gulf front beaches. We enjoyed the heated indoor pool. Our kids fished Ole River. We watched the sunset at the lanai on Ole River each evening. This place was super clean, well furnished, has easy access to the beach and Ole River and is centrally located in Orange Beach. Highly recommend it to couple or a small family. .

The room was very nice. We will be staying again if we go back to Orange Beach. The room was stocked with everything we needed. All we had to do was get groceries.

My family of 4 stayed 4 days and 3 nights. Mr. Dorgan was amazing to work with. He is super kind and very precise with his information. There was nothing left to question upon arrival because the information given when I made the reservation had absolutely everything in it that I needed to know. The condo was very clean and modern. From the balcony you can see the Ocean AND the Ole River. My 8 year old had a BLAST scooping crabs up off of the dock on the Ole River. The walk to the beach took no time at all and the pedestrian crossing was a breeze, push the button and traffic stops! The only problem I had was I didn't get to stay long enough! I highly recommend this property for a small family or a couple. It is perfect!
