About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

If you are looking for more than just a beach vacation, you must stay at Phoenix on the Bay. Water views abound and water activities are the focal point of this amazing resort. Bring your boat, we have not only a boat ramp but also boat slips you can rent. Keep your boat in the water right at the resort so it is ready whenever you are. A great fishing cleaning area is conveniently located near the docks and between all of the charcoal grills. When you aren't relaxing in the condo, watching the flat screen TV or cooking in the gourmet kitchen, you can be taking a lazy float in the lazy river. Plenty of tubes, no waiting. If not in a lazy water mood, then take a slide down the waterslide, or just watch the kids from the balconey as they slide down the slide into the lazy river.

You can also go up on the roof and play tennis, or down near the docks for some putting on the large putting green. Bring your kayak and paddle out to the islands just offshore. If it is possible to get tired of all of the resort activities, you can always hop in the car and go shopping or dining. The Wharf entertainment complex is just down Canal Road. Movie theaters, sports bars, restaurants, shops, clubs, a marina and even an amphitheater. Oh, and if you need to sit in the sand and look for jellyfish, the beach is just 3 miles away by car, much less by boat.

You can also drive over to the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, just 40 minutes away, and watch the Blue Angels practice, then tour the Naval Air Museum for a great morning.

About Le Ann McBrayer

Le Ann does several contract work from home and I am a marketing professional with a software company. We love to travel when not working, and when we travel we love water sports and activities. Granted an 'activity' can also be enjoying the view with a nice bottle of wine.

Le Ann McBrayer purchased this condo in 2004

Why Le Ann McBrayer chose Orange Beach

We always thought the beach was the thing. Like most vacationers, the impulse is to look for beaches first. We have a few beach front units but after a few years we realized that being on the bay is much more fun, much more to do. The beach is nice for a little while but being able to boat, kayak, fish and view the wildlife of the bay, then take a float on the lazy river is much more fun. Some day we hope to retire at this wonderful resort.

What makes this condo unique

Being able to walk down and hop on the boat is awesome. Taking a float on the lazy river is the ultimate in relaxation. Kayaking to the numerous little islands of Perdido Bay is incredible.

Wonderful and Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This Condo has everything you need with a Great view of the Lazy River, It has a Fantastic Location but still within Shopping areas and Other things to Do. The owners of this Condo are great and will work with you if you need. The Lazy River is wonderful as well as all the other pools. Book this one, you will not be Disappointed.....

Just Right!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to be!! Everything was perfect inside & out. Weather had changed a couple of days before we arrived--therefore the pools/lazy river were cold....but the inside pool was just right!!! The big screen TV in the den--great to watch football!!! I love the kitchen dishes. Even the coffee tasted better in the mugs setting on the porch.

This unit was spotless upon arrival. The description was exactly as the VRBO pictures showed. (Even Better) The master Bath was VERY nice.

One of our favorite places to eat is Doc's Seafood Shack which is about 1.5 miles from the Phoenix. The owner was very helpful answering all my questions before booking. We were not disappointed is renting this one.

Thank you for allowing us to visit your Beach home. Would like to visit again Summer 2015!!

Our family of 4 had a wonderful time!!

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning the owners of this property were kind and informative and answered all of our questions. The condo itself is just beautiful, it was clean, stocked with everything you may need, spacious and comfortable. The Phoenix on the Bay has beautiful and well maintained grounds and the lazy river and pool is awesome. You may not even need or want to go to the beach! There is a Tiki Bar just up the street that we fell in love with the atmosphere in and frequented. Our weather unfortunately was not the best for some of our stay, but because this condo is so nice it didn't get us down and we made the best of it. We hope to come back next year...and will hope for warmer weather when we do!!

We had a wonderful time staying in this unit. The owners made sure everything was satisfactory when we arrived, and checked on us during our 6 week stay. Everthing was great, and everyone was so friendly. We hope to return again next year.
