About the Property

Condo, 2 King Bedrooms + Bunk room, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Lighthouse sits directly on the Gulf of Mexico less then 1/2 mile down East Beach Blvd. (Hwy. 182).

Please note: We have another 3 bedroom with 3 bath unit on the 3rd floor (just doors away) at The Lighthouse and the vrbo # for it is 289529. We also own a 10th floor 3 bedroom/3 bath unit which has 3 kings bedrooms and 3 baths as well.

If you enjoy lounging by the pool, prepare yourself as there are three! The first is a extremely kid-friendly zero entry pool which starts at about 2 inches in depth and gradually extends to five feet deep. The children will be thrilled to splash, play and run under the water jets. The second pool is suitable for everyone else and both are huge.

Can't you just feel yourself relaxing under the palm trees in one of the many chaise lounges surrounding both pools? Are hot tubs your favorite way to unwind? There is one located at each end of the pool along with chairs for chatting with friends. The remaining pool is a very large heated indoor pool. This pool,the fitness room and cedar sauna are on the first floor with a perfect beach view from the walls of windows.

The four high speed elevators are enclosed in individual rooms which buffer any noise to the nearby condos. Your room is conveniently located just feet away from one which accesses all of the 1st floor amenities!

Your condo has been tastefully and comfortably decorated. The master bedroom has a king size pillow top mattress. It has a 19' flat panel TV w/DVD player and a ceiling fan. There is ample storage in the walk-in closet with plenty of shelving . The master bath has a separate double vanity dressing area before you walk into the main bath area with the whirlpool tub, glassed-in shower and commode. The master bedroom and living room both have heavy drapes with blackout lining.

The guest bedroom also has a king pillow-top mattress and ample closet storage . It also has a 19' flat panel TV with DVD and a ceiling fan. The guest bath is a shower/tub combination and can be accessed through the guest bedroom and the hallway both. The bunk room contains two twin beds and is cheerfully decorated.

The living room has a large flat panel TV with DVD player and a ceiling fan. The couch converts to a sleeper sofa. The kitchen is very well equipped with all of the major and small appliances you will need including a large coffee maker and heavy duty blender, it also has a huge separate pantry. All of the rooms have earthtone colored tile with the exception of the 2 main bedrooms which are carpeted.

The beautiful white sand and turquoise water is like no other. The view from your balcony is simply breath taking. It is accessible from both the living room and master bedroom and is a very spacious.You can watch the kids enjoy the pool, carry on a relaxing conversation and still hear the waves crash on the beach- the best of all worlds! The view is magnificent- enjoy the peaceful mornings watching for dolphins to jump or soak in the breezy evening sunsets.

We normally try to have only Saturday to Saturday rentals during the peak season, however, there are some partial weeks availible.

On a personal note- We have enjoyed the Gulf Shores area for several years now and it is our hands-down favorite. We picked the condo we own because we feel it represents the best of all worlds- a very child-friendly atmosphere but also well-appointed for our adult guests.

It is close to everything you want and need in the way of dining and shopping. The rooms have been outfitted to make it your home away from home and your comfort and fun is foremost in mind. Don't wait another minute and book your vacation with us today!

Our condo complex itself offers gulf-front beach access for our guests. There are 2 outdoor pools and 1 heated, indoor pool. There are two large hot tubs near the pool deck. The fitness center offers a beach view with multiple elliptical, bike, and treadmill machines and lift equipment. There is also a sauna located here. Gulf Shores has well-marked bike/running lanes on their roads. There are multiple places to rent from including the nearby state park. The complex also has lockable bike parking access. The state park and around Gulf Shores has many walking trails. Tanger Outlet mall is located about 20 minutes, The Wharf in Orange Beach offer a variety of shops as well the many boutique shops throughout the area. The Gulf State pier is located nearby with accessible fishing, equipment rental and small restaurant. Waterville water park has fun for the entire family and there are multiple miniature golf parks around the area. The Track offers rides, games and go-cart action. There is a great zip-line located across from the state park pier. The Gulf Coast boasts some of the best fishing action around . There are multiple marinas to charter smaller private trips or "party boats" and are kid-friendly. Trips are usually all inclusive and you'll need to only bring food , drinks and sunblock. We've went several times and caught red snapper, shark , mackerel & grouper. Inland ( bay) fishing is also available as well. Marinas also have rentals on Sea-Doos, pontoons and offer dolphin viewing trips. If you look to venture away from the beach, there's more in store. North off Hwy. 59 has an alligator farm where you can get up-close and personal and even watch feedings. You can walk through the farm via an elevated/fence walkway to see gators too. The retired battleship, the USS Alabama is docked about 45 minutes away near Mobile and it available for tours. It 's a very interesting tour and well-worth the drive. They also have a large aviation museum on-site and provides a lot of history that young and old enjoy. There are several awesome restaurants near these too. Fort Morgan is a historical ruins ( wear walking shoes and mind your step) and provides great insight to the part the Mobile Bay area played to our nation. There is a small but very interesting museum that describes civil war life in the area, the role of Mobile Bay, battles fought and has a ton of photos and artifact . It is only about 30 minutes away from the condo. The ferry to Dauphin Island is located here as well . The Gulf Coast Exploreum & Aquarium is located here. If your're really lucky- you might see the famous Blue Angels buzz by the beach. They are headquartered in nearby Pensacola and offer early-morning practice flight viewing. There are so many fantastic restaurants- it's hard to list them all ! Seafood is king here but most restaurants offer chicken and steak as well. Most restaurants are family friendly, at least until 10 p.m. . Parasailing and helicopter tours are also available nearby. One of the great things about Gulf Shores is they have a great online website for planning your trip with links to many of the sites mentioned. The town has a strong police presence and safety of all is a major concern. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are not "party " beach towns and rowdiness is not tolerated. While it's definitely a spring break destination, families are highly favored. The weather from March to late October is perfect for sunning by the pool and in your beach chair. Gulf Shores has several festivals including the Shrimp Festival in October and the "Hangout Music Fest" in the spring that features up and coming plus established musicians and bands.

 

Owner info

About the owner: We live in western Kentucky and had spent most of our beach vacations with our family in Gulf Shores. We decided to purchase our first unit in 2008 and currently own three. We have developed a loyal customer base with several families now in their 3rd and 4th years ( with a even a few more longer than that) . This is exactly what we had intended when we decided to begin our rental business. We want to develop loyal customers because they know what we will provide to them and how we value their business. I ask each client if they have been to the area and if they haven't ( or it's been a few years), I try to provide them with info of the area and activities. Even though the beaches are beautiful,there is just so much to see and do in the entire gulf coast area. Our family has been involved in a construction related business for 30+ years and customer service is truly our number one priority. Clients are spending their hard earned money to relax and get away from it all for just a few days. We want to exceed their expectations on what a vacation rental home should be.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
The Lighthouse is one of the most desired complexes in Gulf Shores. It is a very well-maintained facility overall . The complex is within walking distance to several restaurants and shops as well which makes is very convenient.
