About the property

Panoramic beach, gulf, pool and amazing sunset views are what this luxury condo has to offer you from its 586 sq ft wrap-around balcony!

If you need more condos in The Lighthouse, check out our other properties, also at The Lighthouse: VRBO #409620, 510283, and 257226. And if have a mountain getaway in your future, check out this brand-new, luxury 3/3 cabin w/home theater and game rooms in the Smokey Mountains! VRBO #900883

When you first set foot inside you will find floor-to-ceiling wall-of-windows that lead to the condo's most unique feature- the spectacular wrap-around balcony. It's larger than some one-bedroom condos! The balcony offers a multitude of beautiful unobstructed beach, pool, sunrise, sunset, and city views. It has seating for 8 and there is a table just in case you decide to have your breakfast wih the dolphins. Two beautiful loungers round out this well-appointed balcony.

This highly-desired, beautifully furnished condo has many more features including:

* The floor plan is the largest 3 bedroom layout in the complex with 1,547 square feet of living space!

* Two of the three bedrooms not only have a floor-to-ceiling wall-of-windows, but they also open to the enormous gulf front balcony. This is a highly unusual feature for a beach front condo. The bedrooms all have attached full baths.

* Flat screen TV's Blu-Ray/DVD players are located throughout the condo. You can access free Netflix on two TV's at one time.

* High-speed Wifi internet is provided- it can be accessed from anywhere in the condo, including the balcony!

*Keyless entry system (for guests' convenience and safety).

* Electric balcony grill (you don't have to wait in line at the complex's grills).

* From the fully-stocked kitchen and bar to the beach chairs, pool towels, and rolling cooler we have tried to make it your perfect, stress-free vacation retreat.

Throughout our travels, one of the first things we notice when staying in a condo is the cleanliness of the unit. Our cleaners work very hard to make sure everything is spotless. We also have the unit inspected to make sure everything is in perfect working order and ready for your arrival. We are also readily available should you have any questions before, during, or after your stay.

As for the Gulf front Lighthouse complex, it is the place to be in Gulf Shores. The Lighthouse has two outdoor pools (including one kid-friendly zero-entry pool), one indoor pool, two hot tubs, sauna, fitness center, and it is located directly on the white-sand beaches of Gulf Shores. The Lighthouse is located 0.6 of a mile from the center of Gulf Shores (The Hangout-where Highway 59 meets the Gulf).

Parking passes are now purchased at the gate upon arrival at The Lighthouse. You may purchase 1-2 parking passes (possibly more in the off-season) for $20/each. Payment is cash or credit card only.

Gulf Shores and the Alabama Gulf Coast area have many interesting activities for all members of your family. There are many restaurants within walking distance or a short drive from our condo. You can even view the local favorite, Sea-N-Suds from our balcony! Other nearby family-fun centers include a water and amusement Park, a zoo, miniature golf, and go-kart tracks. The Tanger outlet mall is about a 20 minute drive from the beach, and there are numerous fishing charters, tennis facilities and world-class golf courses nearby. The Wharf, located in nearby Orange Beach has many shops, restaurants, and an amphitheater where many famous music artists perform. Short day trips include, Ft. Morgan where you can take the ferry across Mobile Bay to visit the Dauphin Island Estuarium Sea Lab and the Bird Sanctuary and Pensacola, Fl where you can visit the Naval Aviation Museum (home of the world famous Blue Angels).

Last but certainly not least, check out our pictures and guest comments for more reasons to book this beautiful condo today!

We prefer and accept PayPal w/ an approximate 3% processing fee, but it is a safe, convenient way to pay online, and we never have your personal financial information stored on our home computers.

About Gail

We are a family of four from Atlanta, Georgia (5 1/2 hour drive from Gulf Shores). We have been in the rental business for almost twenty years. My husband is in the travel industry and has been to many resorts world-wide. When we found The Lighthouse and this unit in particular, we knew we had found the perfect family vacation destination.

Gail purchased this condo in 2009

Why Gail chose Alabama

Location, location, location! The Lighthouse is located in the heart of Gulf Shores. When we discovered we could walk to or take a short drive to all this beach community had to offer, we knew we had found the right place.

What makes this condo unique

The most unique benefits of staying in our condo are: it's the largest floor-plan in the building (besides our 4/4 penthouse), the 586 sq. ft. balcony has sunset views throughout the seasons, and two of the three bedrooms are gulf-front and have direct balcony access (this is highly unusual for a gulf-front property).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We did have a great time. The condo was perfect. The zero entry pool was excellent for the little ones. You do have one of the best views. The last morning we were there I was drinking coffee on the balcony and 3 dolphins swam by about 100 yards off shore. We will definitely be contacting you for next year. Thanks. M. Dobson (sent via e-mail to the owner)

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect! The house had everything we needed. They had a blender, keurig, and other items needed. The rooms were spacious and worked perfect for our family. We travelled with two younger kids 5 and 9 months) and two older kids (22 and 18). They all loved it. The view was unbeatable! The condo property was very nice and clean. It has two pools one that is a walk in and the other up to 5 foot deep. It has two hot tubs and a workout area. It sits right on the beach with three walkways. Out front they have layout chairs set out which are about $25 a day. Definetly one I will return too!!

Owner's Response: So glad you found our condo and your vacation, "Perfect"! We work hard to make sure our property is well-equipped for all ages. And we agree the views are "unbeatable" from our west corner property. Yes, The Lighthouse has great amenities and is located directly on the sugar-white sand beaches of Gulf Shores. We welcome your return!

Everything You Want in a Beach Front Condo and More!

  • 5 of 5

After a five year hiatus of spring vacation visits to Gulf Shores, my wife and now two adult children returned to rekindle some fond memories and this property was the starting point. Gail (owner) was very responsive in setting up the reservation and subsequent questions we had; this is something you don't get when renting from the traditional real-estate brokers in the area. The unit itself has a spacious interior and beautiful wrap-around balcony facing the gulf. The beds and furniture were comfortable and decor was clean, somewhat modern and well kept. Plenty of beach towels and beach umbrella were available, however we were glad that my wife and I brought our favorite beach chairs along. Little things like the self-programmable door key code eliminated the inevitable search for misplaced condo keys. We all have agreed to return next year and specifically to this condo.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family shared this beautiful condo for Spring Break and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. This condo was very clean and very well furnished, and Gail has done an outstanding job of stocking the kitchen and the laundry area with all of the comforts of home. The huge balcony with high top table and chairs gave us an awesome of view of the ocean, amazing sunsets, dolphins and even a small shark swimming by in the surf! The pools, hot tub and elevator area are extremely clean and well maintained. There are several great restaurants and family fun activities within a very short distance of the condo. We absolutely love Gulf Shores and are definitely planning on returning!
