About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)


First, I would like to thank all of our Guests especially our returning Guests. It is a pleasure sharing our home away from home with you and your family in Orange Beach during your stay!! We have so many return renters to be grateful for returning.

One of the newer condos in Orange Beach, The Moorings, immediately next door to Shipps Restaurant and Sportsman's Marina, offers solitude and time to unwind with breath-taking views of Terry Cove and Perdido Pass. OUR ZERO ENTRY POOL IS UNBELIEVEABLE - covering one acre plus of grounds. Entry into the grounds is gated and secure, allowing for more seclusion. The condo is a spacious 2000 sq. ft. There is an underground ASSIGNED PARKING SPOT just for you. Facing Southeast, there is filtered sunlight most of the day on the spacious 800 sq ft private patio, where you can lounge all day watching the ever-changing kaleidoscope skies over the Gulf.

Leave the hustle and bustle of your hurried life behind for a few days. Here you can feel the balmy breeze on your face. Soak up the sunshine in luxury beside the massive ZERO ENTRY POOL with 15 perimeter fountains and ample lounges. The heated circular pool and hot tub are the best therapy to melt away all the tension in your body.

If you prefer, the beaches with sugary fine sand, dunes and sea oats are a few minutes away. Take a stroll through the docks at Sportsman's marina to see the catches of the day OR charter a boat yourself. Better yet, catch some fish yourself off the dock and cook up your own fresh fish on the grill.

At night a romantic paradise reveals itself poolside with the indirect pool lighting and water fountains adding to the ambience of our Southern star-lit skies.

Now, come inside the 1800 sq ft plus spacious condo. The beauty takes your breath away. With exquisite decorating, the open plan Great Room with 11 foot ceilings, eliminates the cave-like feeling of other condos. The ceiling to floor windows looks out over the pool, Marina, Terry Cove and Perdido Pass with the Gulf just beyond. A flick of the switch gas fireplace is tucked away in the corner for cool month cozy evenings. The wet bar is fully equipped with a dedicated ice maker, sink and glasses; just supply your own wine or spirits.

The state of the art open area dining and gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops as well as stainless steel appliances is the area where you can whip up your specialties amidst friends and family. For those inclined we have a stainless steel gas barbeque grill on the patio. These good times and memories you will want to repeat year after year. We have many repeat renters.

The Master bedroom has a king sized bed, 11 foot high ceilings with ceiling to floor windows and doors, again, overlooking the water. The Master bathroom has his/hers granite countertop vanities, a Jacuzzi whirlpool multi-person tub, stand alone shower and spacious walk in closet. The 2nd Bedroom has a Queen bed with an attached full bath. The 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds and a private bathroom. Our beds have luxury sheets and fluffy, absorbant towels are provided. The laundry room is in the condo for your convenience with washer and dryer. The state of the art exercise room with wet and dry sauna has extended use hours.

For those of you who like shopping, there are the Tanger Outlet Center, Wharf shops and small boutiques of Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. Night life in Orange Beach abounds. The famous Florabama is just minutes away. The Wharf Amphitheater is only 4 miles down the road. Check their schedule for major name entertainment.

We live in the area and are readily available to take care of any problem that might unexpectedly occur. We treat this condo like our second home, not a rental; you will notice the difference compared to other condos that you may have rented previously.

We know you will be pleased with your stay at our home!

Why Michael and Janet Hoffman chose Orange Beach

Our condo has all the advantages and more luxuries than hustle-bustle condos. SECLUSION AND PRIVACY are the key words for our condo. The 11 foot ceilings add to the expansive spaciousness of the unit, not the usual cave-like feeling of other condos.

What makes this condo unique

We watched this condo built. We would go to a dirt pile and imagine what our view would be like. It surpassed our expectations.

Wonderful family trip

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 small families stay and had plenty of room for everyone. We loved having the 3 separate bathrooms. We also used the grill every night and had a great time relaxing on the porch watching the view of the pool and water. The marina next door worked out perfectly to dock our boat, we could see it from our room. Loved the location of the unit. We will definitely return!

We LOVED This Wonderfully Spacious Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family--me, my husband and two teenage children--stayed here a week and had a WONDERFUL time! We couldn't have asked for more convenience in terms of space, location, and price. This was absolutely the perfect fit for us! You won't find a better price for a 3 bed/3 bath condo in this area. I researched condo prices extensively. Trust me! Now let's get to that zero-entry pool.

F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! It was big and all of us really enjoyed it! We could view it directly from our condo and it was so pleasant to have that view. The master has a Jacuzzi bath and I regret not using it. My teen daughter especially loved having her own bedroom AND bathroom--on vacation no less! The only minor issues we had was trouble unlocking the box to get the key but we figured it out after a few tries. One night a few people in the pool were a tad loud--only because we're not used to it--but the noise level was bearable. To have the grill was super convenient! We used it a few times. This is a very quiet condo building and the owner was very responsive. She even sent us a thank you card afterwards and that was a special touch I didn't expect! Overall, we had wonderful experience and would definitely come back next year!!

Great spot, nice condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is SUPER convenient. Great dining next door. Huge pool and sun deck. And with the marina right there, it works out great.

The unit is right there on the first can park REALLY close and the parking lot is rarely full. Nice spacious condo.

And, most importantly, the owners are very easy to work with.

Thanks....and we'll be talking again in the future!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was perfect, not one hiccup! The view is absolutely stunning and the location is close to everything (grocery/ restaurants/ boat ramps/ beaches/ shopping). Some of the hotels in the area charge nearly $200/ night. The rate on this place is below market comparatively for what you get: the view/ the space/ the pool/ and full kitchen... which cut down on our 'dining out' expenses for the whole family! The condo was absolutely spacious, allowing plenty of room for everyone. Upon arrival the condo was very clean and everything the website said it was. Working with the owners couldn't have been any easier, and were very attentive to our needs. Repeat customer for life! Loved the this property and highly recommend it to any vacationers!
