Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)
About Heith Jeffcoat
My wife and I grew up in Alabama and have vacationed here our entire lives. It was always a dream to one day have a place of our own. Summerhouse was perfect for us, especially with small children. Even in cold or rainy weather, we could take them to the indoor pools or walk across the street to the souvenir shop. We take great pride in providing our guests with a home like feel. The condo is decorated beautifully and everything works!
Heith Jeffcoat purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Heith Jeffcoat chose Orange Beach
The huge indoor and outdoor pools are great for families. When the kids are little and the weather isn't cooperating, the heated indoor pool is a great place to let the kids burn off that extra energy. And the 20 person hot tub is a great place for the adults to watch them.
What makes this Condo unique
Most of the time when you are looking for a 3 bedroom condo, you have more than one couple going along on the trip. Then you have to decide.... Which couple gets the king bedroom? Well, we put a king bed in one of the extra bedrooms as well. We removed the old armoir, put a flat screen television on the wall, and were able to upgrade the bedroom with a king bed. But wait...there's more.... We also added a 2 queen beds to the 3rd bedroom. This allows families with one child to stay in one room or for all of the kids to pile in there together. This is truly a unique layout for 3 bedroom units.

We had a Wonderful Stay at this property!! We will definitely book it again in the future!!
Pre-Memorial Day Week
We had a perfect view, but the Condo, not so perfect. Let's start with guest bathroom. Mold on the ceiling. Shower Curtain doesn't cover the full length of the shower so water ends up on the floor. Only one shower bar when multiple people shower and the shower curtain bar it too tall to reach for those of us who are vertically challenged.
The toilet is NOT secured properly. It rocks from side to side. The sink doesn't have enough counter top space to place your things that go in the bathroom.
Next thing is we had to replace at least eight light bulbs throughout the whole condo. Now good news is there was spare bulbs in the laundry room shelves. But, that's a lack of attention to detail on the cleaning/maintenance/ownership crew to ensure those little details are not a hassle for their guests. Replacing one bulb isn't an inconvenience, replacing eight is a pain. I know there were more in the kitchen area that need replacing, but I'm not climbing on counter tops to replace them.
Some light switches we learned late in the week, control electrical outlets. So when you go to bed and you've plugged up your phones, or ipads for charging over night, and you shut the switch off, your electronics doesn't recharge. Probably need to let your guests know this info.
Also, both showers need grab bars for senior citizens with certain handicaps. It's wonderful walk-in, but for those with balance issues, they need that stability.
One suggestion is maybe a bigger water heater or the tankless system. It seems daily we ran out of hot water between both shower and dishwasher running. Needless to say, the pots and pans were not clean. Neither was the blender or some plates and drinkware.. We washed about three loads just to ensure we had clean utensils, plates, glasses and cookware. There is never any excuse for those issues. It made me weary of the towels, so we washed all towels just to be sure. The dryer has heating problems too. Most instances we had to dry all things twice, because they didn't dry the first cycle which shows 80 minutes.
Next I noticed Junk piled in the closets. Extra chair, bedding, etc... and we needed the space. Those kind of things should be in storage, not closets that we are going to use.
The condo has a ton of potential, but needs these issues to be corrected to be perfect.
I am very sorry the unit was not in top condition during your stay. We did not do our best before your stay. I take accountability for that and appreciate your feedback.
Everything was just as described and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and the decor was calming. The owner replied to our questions in a timely manner. Couldn’t have been any better all around. Thanks
Home away from home
This is the third time i’ve Stayed in this condo with my family and frankly it’s perfect. The decor is very nicely done. Our beds are comfortable. The kitchen has everything we need and the view is beautiful.. There is an indoor pool for those rainy days and a sauna and gym! the owners are very kind and responsive. If you’re looking for a place to stay that feels like home. This is it.
The beach is fantastic, the weather perfect, the crowds this time of year (late October) almost non-existent. All this was topped off by the wonderful unit with a great view of the Gulf and host who certainly made the vacation perfect .
Comfortable, clean and convenient to great restaurants!
Wonderful stay at this condo
I just got back from a long weekend with two friends at this condo. We really could not have asked for more. The owner was so accommodating with our arrival time, and even gave us a late checkout, since he did not need a quick turnover. The condo was clean, beds were very comfortable, and kitchen was well stocked. Living area is not huge, but spacious enough that it didn't feel crowded at all for us. It's only a short walk to the beach. It was nice to go in late September, since the crowds weren't there, but the parking was very easy. We are hoping to return to this same unit again next year, and I would highly recommend it.
