About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This property is updated with very nice furnishings and brand new carpet. We like to rent to those that will treat our places as if it were their own. This condominium is family friendly.

This is an awesome, two bedroom, two and 1/2 bath condominium on the Bay in Orange Beach at The Moorings. It is professionally decorated. This is a huge 1600-square-foot unit with an additional 300 square feet of covered balcony on the top, penthouse floor. It has 9-foot ceilings with floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows across the back of the unit and skylights.

This condominium is the largest 2 bedroom floor plan in The Moorings. Only 4 other units are this big. It has a great view of the pool area as well as Terry Cove and Robinson Island (the most active area of coastal Alabama) and the Gulf of Mexico.

It is directly next door to Shipps Harbour Grill (one of the finest restaurants in Orange Beach) and the area's newest Tiki Bar, Pleasure Island Tiki @ Sportsman Marina. Walk out the back door on 1/4 million square feet of docks and fish for flounder and trout. Then come on back and cook 'em up on the stainless steel Holland Grill on your balcony. Hang out by the one-acre pool area or next to the fireplace in the condominium. Watch TV on a 45-inch LCD. The kitchen features stainless appliances, granite counters, premium utensils and hardwood cabinets.

Take in the boats going by while you read your favorite book on the huge balcony. You can bring your boat and tie it to the dock while you stay, first come, first serve or you can rent a designated slip at the Marina next door. It will be right out your back door. . There is a small charge to store your trailer at the marina next door. THERE IS NO TRAILER PARKING AT THE CONDO.

Sound like a great vacation? It will be if you rent this condominium for the week. If you decide to stay at The Moorings, you will come back year after year.

About Valerie Miller

This property is managed by Coastal Rental Group. We have an office located along the Alabama gulf coast and are available to service our guests at a moment's notice. We welcome you to come and visit our beautiful Beaches

Valerie Miller purchased this condo in 2005

Why Valerie Miller chose Orange Beach

We love Orange Beach, AL. It is the Ft. Lauderdale of north Florida. There are canals throughout most of our neighborhoods and fishing abounds in shore and offshore. If you enjoy boating this is a wonderful place to live and visit. Our restaurants and our entertainment are second to none, and the Wharf is only 5 miles up the road. It has headline concerts, theaters, tons of shops and restaurants. It seems that Orange beach has more restaurants per resident than any other place in America. Every variety of food at every price level is available in Orange Beach. Of course the 30 or so sea food restaurants are the most popular. Last but not least, our beautiful beaches. There is more unspoiled beaches in orange beach than you could get to in a month. Our white quartz sand is so clean that it squeaks when you walk on it. Finally, Pensacola and Naval Air Station is only a ½ hour away. The Naval Aviation Museum is the finest in the country. (It’s great for a rainy day at the beach) Come down to Orange Beach and experience why we moved here full time.

What makes this condo unique

This is a low density condo that is surrounded by activity yet it is church mouse quiet at night. The pool is 1st class. The marina is active. There are very few renters in this complex. The lights of the bay and the live music that permeates the air in early evenings from the restaurants patio deck next door makes this a beach vacation to remember.

First but not our last stay at the Moorings!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo, nicely furnished and has an incredible view from the balcony! We saw gorgeous sunrises, boats coming and going on the marina, even dolphins. Enjoyed fresh seafood prepared on the grill on our balcony on nights we did not visit nearby restaurants, including Shipp's Harbour Grill next door to the Moorings --- one of our favorite Orange Beach restaurants. The Tiki Bar, a short walk from the condo, is a fun place to enjoy a drink and live music on weekends. The location is quiet and great for relaxing. Beaches are nearby, but we also spent time around the large Moorings pool. Valerie (CRG) is easy to work with and very responsive, answering a couple of calls to address minor issues (couldn't find TV remote, clogged tub drain), even when she was out of town. The only negative thing about staying at the Moorings is having to leave. We already have reservations for next year!

Very Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

This is the 5th time we have stayed at the Moorings in the past 2 years and our first and last time staying in This unit. We love the Moorings, the location and the pool, but this unit was a huge disappointment. It was by far the dirtiest unit we have ever stayed in. Here are some of the issues we found. The master bed sags horribly and caused back pain upon waking in the AM. We went to hang our towel up on the towel rack in the master bath and the whole rack fell off the wall. You could see where someone had literally placed it back on the wall without fixing it. There was no remote control for the master bedroom TV dish box. Many of the window blind slats in the living and master are missing letting all kinds of light in in the AM, nor does the cord work to close them. You have to manually close them. There was mold in the master shower (gross). The light fixture in the 2nd bedroom has only a bulb and we found popcorn under the beds. There is a lousy patch job on the 2nd bathroom walls, my 6 yr old could have done better. The drawers in the kitchen are missing bottoms, so when you place something in them it falls out. No DVD cord connecting to the TV in living area. Dust in the vents and where the air-conditioning is. I have severe allergies so this has caused my allergies to go crazy while here, wheezing and all. Carpet was filthy. I like to vacuum almost every day, and we went to turn on the vacuum provided and dirt came out everywhere. We had to use a dustpan and broom. Which wouldn't have been bad, except I could not vacuum the carpet. I could go on, but I am running out of characters in this review. There is definitely no personal touch; you can tell that this unit is just a revolving door for renters. Charging way too much for leaving little satisfaction. WE WILL NOT RENT THIS UNIT AGAIN!

Owner's Response: WOW. I am blown away. We have rented this property for 12 years and have never had a review like this. Everybody LOVES this unit. Betsy F. stayed with us for a full 7 days. She was checked in by our staff and was given a direct number to our property manager that lives 4 blocks from the unit. NO phone calls were ever made to our office or our manager to indicate that there was any concern whatsoever. Then BOOM here comes this bad review. Generally within 15 minutes of any concern we have staff at the condo. We would have sent our maintenance man and cleaning crew over the minute we heard there was any kind of problem. We were never given a chance to resolve concerns or satisfy Betsy F. We will review the concerns and correct any problems immediately. This is a top notch $400,000 condo that we take great pride in. We are deeply disappointed when a unit does not meet expectations. If Betsy F. would have simply let us know we could have put her in another, larger Moorings unit for the week or fixed any concerns quickly. I'm not picking on Betsy F here but I find it amazing that while you are on vacation at the beach for a week that you would "normally" vacuum all 1822 sq ft of floors every day. That might lead to "unattainable expectations" on her part. Our cleaning crew has their own vacuums therefore we would only know that the vacuum did not work if someone tells us. We would also find any problems with every unit when we do a full deep clean that takes a week and happens in the spring and fall. We are about 3 weeks away from our fall deep clean cycle. Coastal Rental Group strives to have 100% customer satisfaction. There is nothing that we can do after the stay but say "Betsy F., we are truly sorry that you were disappointed with our condo."

Great Condo opn the bay.

  • 5 of 5

If you want a quiet well kept up condo complex to relax at the Moorings is for you. Located right on the bay the Moorings overlooks Perdido Pass and Sportsman's Marina. The have a zero entry pool and hot tub. The pool deck is great. The association is very active here keeping everything top notch in the complex. They have a fixed dock that is first come first served, more like a sea wall, bring bumpers for your boat. Never had a problem parking there overnight. Just a minor thing for this unit, the grill on the deck needs to be upgraded!! Not enough BTU's to grill with, more like an oven than a grill. The condo itself is light and airy and clean. CRG is a great outfit to work with and the manager does a great job!

Dream condo and location

  • 5 of 5

After staying in gulf front condos many times, decided to try something different. We discovered we prefer the bay side better! The view is BEAUTIFUL both day and night. This condo is extremely well decorated, appointed, and comfortable. The skylights in the kitchen and master bath give it that extra touch of luxury missing in other units. The Moorings location is super convenient to all that Orange Beach/Gulf Shores has to offer. Just a few minutes to the stores and restaurants. It was 90 degrees all week when we were there and the AC actually stopped working our last day there and Valerie had the repairman there within 45 minutes to fix it. Great customer service! This was a very quiet complex when we were there (which we were looking for) so if you are looking for a truly relaxing vacation, you won't go wrong with this condo.
