Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: We are a Midwestern family who always seems to choose vacation destinations that include water. Mom and daughter love to bask in the sun, while Dad and son prefer to spend the day on the water fishing. Since we have owned this condo, we have enjoyed it as a family, with other adult couples, as a guys trip for fishing & golf, and a ladies getaway for sun & fun & shopping!! We intended it for personal use only (and outfitted it accordingly; there is nothing 'rental quality' about this unit), but because of so many requests from friends to rent it, decided to put it in the rental program at the beginning of 2009. We hope you will enjoy it and come back again and again!

Why Orange Beach, AL, USA:
While looking for a good investment and a possible retirement home somewhere on the Emerald Coast, we drove through Orange Beach, AL & fell in love with the island! A realtor told us about The Wharf, a 220-acre just-started building project that was to include a wonderful pools area, shops, restaurants, an amphitheater, a conference center, movie theaters, giant ferris wheel & various other activities, with each condo facing the Intracoastal Waterway and a beautiful marina...it was too good to pass up!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Everything is on the property so, once you stop at one of the many local grocery stores to stock up, you can park your car for the rest of your stay! Free shuttle service will take you around the 220 acres to the pool area (The Oasis), restaurants, movies, shops, Ferris wheel (Main Street area), the conference center, and back to your condo.
