About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Enjoy a fun-filled getaway to one of the most exciting resorts on the Alabama Gulf Coast. Our luxury condo is on the 12th floor of the Caribe Resort and features great unobstructed views of the Gulf. We pride ourselves on providing a rental property that feels like home--because this is our home away from home. It is luxuriously furnished--not a typical beach rental--which is why it will quickly become your home away from home!

The Alabama Gulf Coast is blessed with beautiful waters and pristine beaches and the Orange Beach area offers many things to see and do. We encourage you to visit and hope you will consider us for your lodging needs.

Our condo has three bedrooms and three full baths, assuring comfort and privacy for everyone. With a king, queen, two singles plus two queen sofa beds, there is easily enough sleeping room for 10. In addition to our roomy 1750 square feet of living area, our spacious balcony offers breath taking views to enjoy throughout the day and night. With Granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, our full kitchen is great for those gourmet meals or quick snacks. You will enjoy the ocean view from the master bedroom, a large Jacuzzi in the Master Bath, separate double shower, and a large walk in closet which even makes a great nursery with portacrib, if needed!

Caribe has all the amenities you would expect from a first class resort. Add in local attractions, great restaurants and water activities, and you have the makings of a great vacation.

Testimonials from our guests:

The following are excerpts of the many nice comments written by our guests recently. Although not everyone remembers to write, we can honestly say we never had a negative comment.

September 2009 – “Every year our family tries to make a trip to the beach.... we used to head to Destin .... this is by far the best trip we have taken. The place, the pools, the beach and the pools ;-) are all wonderful! We will definately be looking you up again.

August 2009 – “We had a wonderful time! The condo was beatiful .... we will be spreading the word about Alabama to our friends in NY, it really is beautiful.' Cirrone family (New City, New York)

May 2008 – “The beautiful condo and facility has been perfect. It is the best place we have ever stayed in over the last 30 years of visiting the coast on vacations.” Kerry & Connie C. (Denham Springs, LA)

March 2008 – “My son said this was the best Easter ever! Also we enjoyed our stay for Spring Break for our kids… they had a blast! I love sitting on the balcony … enjoying the view … that is the most relaxing part of the stay! I hope we get to stay here again and again!” Fanci & John L. (Daphne, AL)

March 2008 – “The view is absolutely perfect. The ocean is calming. Just what the soul needs occasionally. The Caribe is the best resort EVER.

(Saraland, AL)

June 2007 – “People think we are crazy for driving all this way … but this beautiful coast is so fun and family friendly we plan to return as often as possible. The Caribe – especially unit B1211 is like living in the lap of luxury. We appreciate your hospitality very much. Our kids loved the pools and most of all the Lazy River. It was so wonderful we never wanted to leave the pools, but we managed to go the beach a couple of times! ” Patrick & Michelle F. (Broomfield, CO).

We have been blessed to have nice, responsible guests at our condo with many returning for additional stays with us. We do hope you give us a try!

About Steve Kauffman

We are retired in our mid 60's and live close by in Daphne, so we can personally take care of our guests. We enjoy offering our 'home away from home' to responsible parties and we have many repeat guests. We take pride in never having a guest disappointed in their stay with us! We hope you will give us a try.

Steve Kauffman purchased this condo in 2003

Why Steve Kauffman chose Alabama

From the very beginning it was obvious that Caribe Resort would be a very specially place on the Gulf Coast and, as original owners, we wanted a spacious 'home away from home' to entertain family and friends. We particularly liked the ocean view from our high, 12th floor balcony.

Great property and unit

  • 5 of 5

First of all, let me say that the whole rental experience working directly with the owner, Steve, was great. He answered all of my questions in a timely manner. He even called us on the day of arrival. The unit is well kept and well stocked with items that aren't easy to remember to bring with you for a week-long stay. The property itself is well kept and clean with several very nice swimming pools. The view from the balcony is great. We also enjoyed the large master suite with its own balcony access, large bathroom and walk-in closet. Our kids loved the bunk beds in the room they stayed in. The kitchen is spacious and well stocked with utensils and even a large variety of consumables. My security deposit was returned in a timely manner so I would definitely recommend renting from this owner.

Very nice, well stocked, felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful, the facilities were perfect. It was really helpful to have so many items stocked by the owner so we didn't need to run out and buy every little thing. Plenty of room and super comfortable beds! Slept like a baby!

Our only teeny suggestion is a set of curtains for the living room to block the morning sun (the Mr is not a morning person! Lol)

We were able to enjoy the pools (although I mostly just floated in the lazy river!) plenty. The rooms were decorated just enough that it felt vacationy but not overdone. Comfy, so we were felt at home but nice enough to feel luxurious. Kids really enjoyed it (and loved the glass elevator!) thanks so much for a great trip!!!

Best Trip to Gulf Coast in 20 Years

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been coming to the Gulf Coast for 20 years! We've stayed in Destin, Ft Walton, Panama City, Okaloosa Island, Gulf Shores and Ft Morgan. Our favorite is Orange Beach! We have three children who are now teenagers! They've gone to the beach every year since they were born! We love the beach! We all agreed the Caribe is our all time favorite! It has everything you could want or need! They have thought of everything! Since we buy fresh seafood and cook in our condo, a stocked kitchen is important to me! This kitchen had everything! Looking forward to coming back here again and again and again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your nice comments and we are pleased it was your best beach experience yet. We do hope you can come back again and again and we will try to make your visit as good as the last or even better.

Fall break Ky

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible resort! We were so pleased with the condo...beautifully decorated and nicely stocked. Love the location at end of orange beach. So easy to drive anywhere without being in congestion. Our first stay at this location on beach and absolutely our favorite!

I don't remember reading reviews regarding the gym facilities...but it's the nicest gym I've seen when I've stayed away from home. We could do cardio and stick to our work outs with a well-supplied weight room.

The lazy river and all pools and hot tubs are well-maintained and simply beautiful to look at. The grounds are well cared and beautifully landscaped.

The view from the oversized balcony of the bay and the gulf was so amazing.

The owners are more than accommodating and helpful with arrangements.

We will definitely want to come back! How soon is the question!

Thank you for a perfect stay!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the nice comments. Yes, we probably need to provide more info on the gym facilities and other amenities that are unique to Caribe Resort. We are also going to upgrade our pictures as we are often told that the online pictures don't do justice to our actual unit. We do hope you can return soon and we look forward to hearing from you again.
