About Laura Mohar
My life long dream was to have a place right on the beach and in 2008 my husband and I realized that dream. We love our condo and relish going there as often as possible. We have a good time walking on the beach together especially at sunset. We also love it when our grandkids get to come and enjoy the Gulf with us. We enjoy renting to people who also love going to the beach and making memories.
Laura Mohar purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Laura Mohar chose Orange Beach
We love the beautiful white, clean beaches at Orange Beach. They are as pretty or prettier than Destin and Ft. Walton Beach, but not as crowded or commercialized. Orange Beach is also closer to our home in Houston. Orange Beach is very family friendly and inviting. The residents there are the friendliest and the most helpful of any I have encountered.
What makes this Condo unique
Our building is smaller, and has only 35 units and we like that the beach is very open in front of our building. We enjoy sitting in the gazebo or picnicking there. We spend a lot of time on our huge balcony, also. Our condo is close to groceries, restaurants, churches, the post office, and to the Wal-Mart Supercenter. Foley, AL, which has lots of shopping, including the Tanger Outlet Mall can be reached in minutes.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This condo was clean, well equipped, had fabulous views, and had a very large balcony with great furniture. We had everything we needed for a comfortable, affordable stay. The beach was super clean and a very short walk away. The pool was great and the gazebo was a nice bonus. Laura was quite helpful and responsive and quick to answer any questions that we had. Check in and check out were super easy with the digital lock on the door. We plan to stay here again next year. We all highly recommend this condo. It's set up well for families and kids, even has a pac n' play, high chair, and toys.
Great Family Vacation
aaaIts can be hard determining the best plsssssssssation by Finding a vacation rental by looking at a few pictures online can be challenging, but this condo did not disappoint. The location was perfect, and being housed in a smaller building with less condos (people), there were no issues with parking, the elevator, using the pool, or getting to/from the beach.
As for the condo itself, it was just what the family was looking for. We had 5 adults and 2 kids (ages 6 and 11), but we were never on top of each other with the amount of space the condo provided. And what can I say about the balcony, except that it was amazing. It truly is an extension of the condo, with a great view of the beach and ocean.
Dealing with the owner, Laura, was a wonderful part of our beach rental experience. From the moment I booked the condo, Laura was personable and available any time I had questions. And with the keyless entry, check in/out was the easiest I have ever experienced.
Overall, we had an incredible time in Orange Beach. Thank you Laura for sharing your home with my family!
We enjoyed the location. The facility was clean.
Only recommendation I would have is to add a few umbrellas and couple of tables at pool area.
Not as advertised
When we first got there during the initial walk thru I noticed that it smelled like soggy dog which my child has bad allergies and it instantly started to affect her! It wasnt newly remodeled as it says it is! The bathrooms both have old tubs/ shower stalls that leak in them. The bathroom floor mats were almost black because they weren't washed, the beds in every room but the master was hard as a rock. Not to mention that 2 of the comforters smelled like pee. There was sand everywhere like on the floors and the furniture (even tho in the contract it says that it is to be cleaned up). As I called and talked to the owner all she said was sorry, no offer to do anything else. We made the best of our stay but this condo was definitely not worth the money! Next time I'll shop around alot more!
Great week at the beach
Was a nice getaway for us. Had seven people there - 4 adults, 3 kids - and was plenty of room.
This condo is just what we were looking for with its spacious layout. I was worried that it may seemed cramped with the 10 people, including three children, that stayed. but with the three bedrooms and two baths it never felt overly crowded.
What really made this condo stand out from the other that I have rented was the fully stocked kitchen with most everything needed, pots, pans, silverware, plates, even a waffle maker that the kids loved!
dealing directly with the condo owner was pleasurable as well. She even made sure to leave some sand toys for the kids to use on the beach! She was prompt in all correspondence as well as being through in everything we needed for our stay. No surprises! There is many things for everyone to enjoy close by. Shopping is within minutes of the condo so very convenient if you need anything.
While there may be bigger and fancier condos near by I was so thankful I chose to rent this condo. Super easy access to the beach, the balcony that offers a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. No waiting for the elevators that I've had in the past.
So if you are looking for a condo that is reasonably priced and has everything you need for a great vacation I would recommend renting from Laura, I know i will be on my next trip to Orange Beach!
There is a lot to do in the area, including the Zoo, a recreation center, and a library close by. More local attractions are listed in our ad (Putt Putt golf, Adventure Island, etc), and the Pensacola Aviation Museum is about 30 miles away. The Neighborhood grocery Wal-Mart is about half a mile away. A Winn Dixie and Publix grocery stores are each less than a mile away, and there is a Wal-Mart Super Center about 5 miles up the road. There is the Tanger outlet mall, a Bed, Bath & Beyond, Target, and Books-a-Million all in nearby Foley. There are also many area churches. Directly across the street is Wintzells Restaurant for a quick meal. Lulu's is supposed to also be good and is owned by Jimmy Buffett's sister. For family fun and good Southern style cooking, Lambert's Restaurant, the home of the throwed rolls, is entertaining as well as having great food. I have also eaten at Cobalt's near the Caribe and it had really delicious entrees.
You might want to check out the nearby Zoo in Gulf Shores. It is small, but has a great reputation and was even featured on TV once. There is a Water Park along 59 in Gulf Shores.
Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, parasailing, mini-golf, dolphin cruises, deep sea and pier fishing.
