About Fran and Steve Kauffman

We are retired, live nearby in Daphne and take pride in providing superior service for a comfortable, clean beach retreat for a small party. Because we are original owners and manage our own rental, we provide very competitve pricing. We have had many repeat guests, with some returning for over 10 years! We hope you will give us a try!

Fran and Steve Kauffman purchased this condo in 2000

Why Fran and Steve Kauffman chose Alabama

Tidewater has all the amenities for a great beach front vacation and is situated near Perdido Pass so you can also watch boats come and go. It is very family oriented and is well maintained.

What makes this condo unique

We love sunning on our sugar sand beach and the sounds of the surf as we relax on our balcony. We have decorated our unit in bright tropical colors and decor to enhance the feel of a Carribean vacation at the beach!

Spectacular view with this 4th Floor condo! Great price!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in Tidewater 403! Fran & Steve were great to work with and answered any questions we had. Condo was clean, comfortable and easily accommodates a small family of 4-6. We also loved having a washer/dryer in the unit, definitely a bonus! Tidewater is in a great location and is very family friendly. Hope to visit again soon one day!

Best ever beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Orange Beach many times over the years but this was our best time yet. The condo was not large but very comfortable for our needs and was well decorated and appointed. The location was great and the owners were great to work with and resolved our few minor concerns promptly. We will definitely be back

Relax and unwind!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay. The fourth floor view was breathtaking. The condo was beautiful and very well equipped for our needs. Fran and Steve were very nice and answered all our questions promptly. From the happy day of our arrival to our departure we could not have asked for a better experience. The pool areas were always clean and the staff were very helpful. I would most definitely recommend this condo and will hopefully be able to book with Fran and Steve in the future!

Great winter vacation and getaway.

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 months stay in 2016 so much that I made immediate plans to return for another winter stay in 2017. Your condo is so cheerful, cozy, convenient and has everything a "snowbird" could need. I love the location and view. I guess that is why it so many other "snowbirds" stay at Tidewater and I especially enjoyed visiting with them. I also appreciated the personal service from the owners and it was a comfort to know they lived close by and were available to take care of the few minor problems I had. Although I won't be able to return in 2018, I highly recommend it to other retired couples or even singles looking for a relaxing winter visit at a very reasonable price.

Always look forward to relaxing at your condo - best value in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores

  • 5 of 5

I never tire of our trips to Orange Beach and your Tidewater 403. It is brightly decorated and well appointed with just about everything we need. My wife and I love sitting on your balcony drinking our morning coffee as we look for the occasional Dolphin sighting along the beach. It is a great location and we look forward to returning again and again. We especially appreciate the personal attention each year in booking, answering questions and taking care of the infrequent problems we may have in a timely manner,

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you need and more. We were in Orange Beach for our boys travel baseball team spring training (ages 8 & 11). This place was very comfortable and has plenty of room for a family of 4. When we arrived it was very clean and smelled fresh. I was surprised how quiet the complex was, which was nice. The owners were very easy to work with and did everything possible to make our stay wonderful. We will be back next year and hopefully this condo is available.
