Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Thanks for considering our Lighthouse beach front condominium. The Lighthouse complex is unlike many condominium complexes in that there is no 'tunnel' effect. The lateral design is such that there is more a feeling of openness. The complex features free Wi-Fi and high speed internet access throughout. Also free long distance within area codes of 251, 205, 256, and 334. Amenities are awesome. There are two large outdoor pools (one with zero access for the kiddies), two hot tubs, one heated indoor pool, a sauna and an exercise facility. A meeting room is also available. Built in 2006 the Lighthouse is one of the newest complexes in Gulf Shores.

We recently purchased our unit and this is the first year our condo, unit 501 has been rented. It is freshly painted with lots of new furniture and furnishing. Our balcony is huge (85 feet long and approximately 600 square feet) and has comfortable seating for eight with table and coffee table for your enjoyment.

Our corner unit is unique, located on the east end of the complex where sunrises and sunsets over the Gulf are spectacular, para- sail watching is great and the dolphins are a joy to watch. The Living room-dining room, master bedroom and 2nd bedroom all have huge floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors directly opening onto the balcony, offering a spectacular panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico. The end units have over 1500 sq.ft. and are the largest 3 bedroom, 3 bath properties in the complex.

The living room/dining room has comfortable seating for viewing the Gulf of Mexico or watching the 42 inch flat screen TV. There is a queen size sleeper sofa, club chair with ottoman and a recliner. The dining room table and bar have seating for eight. The kitchen is fully stocked with quality cookware and appliances including Emeril brand cookware, blender, electric skillet, toaster, coffee makers, and electric can opener. The wet bar has adequate bar utensils, ice bucket, but no liquor-sorry.

The master bedroom opens directly onto the balcony. This bedroom is equipped with a king size bed with a New Mattress and springs Nov. 2015).A 42 inch flat screen TV and DVD player is supplied for your enjoyment. The suite features a large bathroom with double vanities, a large walk in closet, a whirlpool tub and a separate glass enclosed shower.

The 2nd bedroom is furnished with a Queen bed and flat screen TV/DVD player and, as mentioned earlier, a sliding glass door entry to the balcony. Furniture with plenty of storage space for your belongings is provided in this and all bedrooms. A private full bathroom with dressing area is provided for this and all bedrooms.

The 3rd bedroom also has a Queen size bed, flat screen TV/DVD combo, mirrored closet, and a full bathroom with a separate dressing area

The Lighthouse is located in a very desirable area. Many restaurants are in walking distance of our unit. Major chains are represented but we enjoy the local cuisine. Some of our favorites within walking distance are the famous Sea and Suds(best crab claws and oysters), Mikee's, and the Pink Pony Pub. Also try DeSoto's(great coconut shrimp) and Bahama Bobs. A short drive to the north on highway 59 is the famous Wolf Bay Lodge down county road 20 and in Orange Beach. For a truly memorable night out that includes fine dining, dancing and entertainment Nolan's is the place to go. Great steaks, whole fried flounder, Greek salads and a full menu await you. Lots of places to go, lots of things to do in our beautiful Gulf Shores. We hope you enjoy your stay and you'all come back.

We also own unit 506 (VRBO 471632) a 2 bedroom with bunk beds in a 3rd small room that also sleeps 8.

Gulf Shores activities are numerous. Younger vacationers can take advantage of the zoo, miniature golf courses, Waterville USA, The Track, the ferry ride across Mobile Bay and Go Cart Tracks. Shopping at local shops is a treat and nearby Tanger Outlet Mall is an adventure as is a visit to the Wharf, both offering lots of shopping opportunities. The Wharf is a complex with many restaurants, shops and an ampitheater featuring top entertainers. Don't forget the famous Naval Aviation Museum-home of the Blue Angels in Pensacola or the Battleship Alabama moored in Mobile Bay. Golfing is world class with multiple first class courses nearby and of course the area is famous for its charter boat deep water fishing.

Lighthouse Condominium Complex is one of the newest complexes in Gulf Shores. The amenities surpasses anything else in this area.

We enjoy the shopping, nearby restaurants, walks in the sand. We enjoy the sounds of the gulf from our private balcony. Coffee from our deck, and watching the sunrises and sunsets, are the most wonderful way to start and end our day!

Great Vacation Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely perfect for us. It was clean, comfortable, beautifully furnished and the wrap around deck overlooking the beach was wonderful for relaxing. We have stayed here two times and just love it. It's close to anything you need. Since each of the three bedrooms has its own bath, there are no problems with privacy. It's the nicest condo we've ever used and I highly recommend it for a great vacation stay. We'll be back too! Thanks.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was all we had hoped for. Great balcony views off the fifth floor of the ocean. It was very well maintained and clean. It was close to resturants and a grocery. We are already planning to go back. A great place to relax and enjoy a week.

Great place!!!!Fabulous place for a family!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time staying here. We hope to return next year. Plenty of space for our family. Wi-Fi signal was great. All the TV's had crystal clear picture. The kitchen had everything we needed. The master suite was amazing. We loved the views throughout the condo with the floor to ceiling windows. The balcony was huge and its furniture was comfortable.

Spring Break

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this condo. It was clean and very comfortable. Our family enjoyed the beach and had a great time all week. We were able to go on a dolphin cruise and visit the USS Alabama which is very close in Mobile. We would highly recommend the USS Alabama tour. If you get a chance, visit Doc's Seafood. The Orange Beach location was wonderful! Make sure to bring kitchen towels as only one towel and washcloth is provided. Also- there were no oven gloves to remove items from the oven so you will have to bring your own. The one thing listed in the property description is that there are children's movies and games available. There were none in the condo. We did bring our own movies but the one thing our family likes to do is play games so that was a disappointment as it would have been nice when it rained. One thing that was very annoying was when it stormed (it stormed four of the nights we were there), it sounded like a freight train whistle going through the condo when the wind blew. We found out it wasn't just our condo as we traveled with three other families and they also stayed at Seawind and had the same problem with their condo doors. When I inquired about this at the location office, I was told that was just how it is. We put towels at the bottom of the door but that didn't completely get rid of the noise which woke our kids up at night.

Overall, we had a great time but would probably try another location next time.

Owner's Response: While in the process of selling this property in late March of this year a renter's children destroyed all the games, puzzles, and DVD's we had for their enjoyment. We have since purchased another property nearby-The Lighthouse. Our unit is a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, east corner unit with over 1500 square feet inside and an 85 foot balcony. Never been rented before our purchase. New paint and most new furniture-check it out. Same VRBO number, 241095. Thanks
