Property description

Our gulf-front corner condo has 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms and is located on the west end of The Beach Club's Doral Tower. The Doral Tower has nothing beside it to the west but open beach, so our condo is one of the few to have truly unobstructed views up and down the beach. Relax on the balcony and enjoy the sunset any time of the year!

The condo is located on the second floor, only one flight of stairs away from the pool, hot tub, and the beach, so there is no need to wait on the elevators. It is spacious, children friendly, and has been beautifully decorated. There are flat screen HDTVs with DVD players in every room with a blue-ray player in the living room, and there is an iPod/IPhone docking stereo. Free high speed internet with WiFi and long distance (48 states) are included.

The master bedroom shares a gulf-front balcony with the living room and has a king bed. The master bathroom has large his & her sinks with granite countertops, vanity area, and separate toilet, tub/shower, and linen closet. The second bedroom suite has a queen bed, its own full bathroom with granite countertops and a tub/shower, and a private balcony with gulf views. The third bedroom has twin beds and an adjacent third full bathroom with with a shower and large vanity.

The living room has seating for eight, a queen sleeper-sofa, and views both out to and down the beach. The large kitchen has beautiful granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, is fully stocked, and has a window looking down the beach. Our condo also has its own washer and dryer. No smoking or pets are allowed.

Doral Tower has a beautiful, private beachfront pool and hot tub. In addition, our guests have unlimited access to all of the facilities and amenities of the private beach-front Clubhouse and Racquet Club without having to pay a daily fee. These include a large year-round heated indoor pool with elegant men's and women's locker rooms, a large outdoor pool and hot tub, a kiddie pool, a pool-side cafe and tiki-bar (seasonal), a well-equipped exercise center, saunas, steam rooms, a game room, and 8 championship clay tennis courts. During the summer enjoy some frozen drinks at the Clubhouse pool-side tiki bar or partake in kayak, seadoo, or para-sailing rentals offered directly off the beach.

The Clubhouse also provides daily children's activities to our guests free of charge, such as seasonal crafts (like tie-die tea shirts, shark's teeth necklaces etc.), games, frozen treats, in-pool movies, and other special events ( such as pool-side live music, s'mores on the beach, etc.). To see what types of activities are being offered please look at the Activities Calendar on The Beach Club's website. Our guests also receive free bike rentals at the Racquet Club (first come first serve), receive 10% off of purchases made at The Beach Club, have access to resort charging privileges, and receive a discount off of beach rental chairs and umbrellas.

The Beach Club is a destination resort with its own 1/4 mile of sugar white beach on the Fort Morgan peninsula in beautiful Gulf Shores. The resort has 3 on-site restaurants, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, a gift shop, a professional spa, a health club and a racquet club. There is also a basketball court, volleyball court, shuffleboard courts, a children's play ground, an arcade and a game room. A beachfront promenade connects all of the pools, green areas, and outdoor activities, complete with gazebos, benches, and swings for easy viewing of the beautiful gulf coast sunsets.

The Beach Club is only minutes away from wonderful golf, marinas, nature parks, restaurants, and many other attractions. One half mile west is the award-winning Kiva Dunes Golf Course (18 holes), and a few miles east is the Peninsula Golf Club (27 holes). A few miles further west is the Gulf Shores Marina, next to historic Fort Morgan (a real civil war fort) and the Mobile Bay ferry which runs to the Dauphin Island Sea Lab. Watch the ships come and go while eating fresh seafood or sign up for some charter fishing.

There are several good restaurants in the area. At The Beach Club there is Coast, the new up-scale beachfront restaurant specializing in seafood; the more casual Village Hideaway (sandwiches, salads, steaks, seafood, pizza & great selection of beers); and the pool-side grill and tiki bar at the Clubhouse (seasonal). Then there is Behind the Pines (gumbo, shrimp, po-boys, burgers) located right next door, the Sassy Bass (seafood) about 5 miles down the road, and Tacky Jack's II (great for its bay views) down by Fort Morgan. There are also good breakfast and lunch spots open to the public next door at the Kiva Dunes golf club and the beachfront Connections Deli at the Gulf Shores Plantation. Or, if you don't want to go out to eat, simply have pizza or other food delivered directly to our condo from the Village Hideaway.

One half mile east of The Beach Club lies the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, which has over 5 miles of natural beaches, both fresh water and salt water fishing, and four wonderful hiking trails (from 1 to 4 miles) that meander around lakes, lagoons and wetlands. The amusement/water parks and zoo of Gulf Shores are only a few more minutes away as are more restaurants, shopping, and the Tanger Outlet Mall.

If you feel like adventuring beyond The Beach Club here are several different excursions we have enjoyed:

Shorter Adventures: (1) hike the beautiful trails at Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge (3 min. drive and it's free); (2) tour historic Fort Morgan (10 min.); (3) walk or bike the paved Back-Country Trails running from Gulf Shores State Park to Orange Beach (20 min., free); (4) visit Waterville USA or The Track amusement parks (17 min.); (5) play mini golf at Pirates' Island (17 min); (6) visit Gulf Shores' Zoo (15 min.); (7) visit Gulf Shores Park Pier, one of the longest on the Gulf Coast (20 min); or (8) rent a kayak or parasail directly off of the beach (seasonal).

Longer Adventures: (1) take the Mobile Bay Ferry over to Dauphin Island to visit Fort Gaines and/or the Sea Lab; (2) take the Mobile Bay Ferry to Dauphin Island and then drive over to tour Bellingrath Gardens, one of the most amazing gardens in the U.S. (30 min. drive from ferry); (3) visit Alligator Alley in Summerdale (40 min); (4) visit the historic bay-front town of Fairhope to explore the quaint shops and their beautiful pier and eat lunch or dinner (45 min.); (5) drive up past Fairhope to tour the USS Alabama Battleship Park, submarine, and adjoining airplane museum in Mobile, and eat lunch or dinner at one of the bay-front restaurants along the causeway (75 min.); (6) visit the Pensacola Naval Aviation Museum (it's free) and watch the Blue Angles practice (check their schedule), bring a cooler, and stop by Joe Patti's Seafood Market, one of the best seafood markets in the country (60 min. drive); (7) go charter fishing from the Gulf Shores Marina (8 min.) or one of the Orange Beach marinas (25 min.); or (8) go on a dolphin cruise from Orange Beach (25 min.)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My husband and I live in Atlanta Georgia with our 8 year old daughter. We fell in love with the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area over 20 years ago and have been frequent visitors to the Gulf Coast ever since.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
We used to own a 1 bedroom condo in Orange Beach but began renting at The Beach Club so much we decided to buy our 3 bedroom condo here. The Beach Club is so open and family friendly! We are not restricted here to one building on a busy road and a small concrete pool area like we were in Orange Beach. The resort is far away from the main road, includes 1/4 mile of private beachfront and acres and acres of green areas and walking trails, and is all monitored by 24 hour security. We don't have to fight the crowds. Everything we need is here: 3 restaurants, 6 pools, a health club, a racquet club, and a professional spa. Once we get to our condo, we never have to leave. There is really nothing else like it in Alabama. We love it!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our condo is unique because it is on the end corner of the western most building at The Beach Club, Doral Tower. This means that the only thing next to us is open beach and sand dunes so we have great views and privacy. The condo is on the 2nd floor of Doral Tower so it is perfect for children and anyone who likes to be closer to the beach. We think it has the look and feel of being in a private beach house but with all of the amenities of a full service resort. We completely remodeled the entire condo when we bought it, making it very children friendly for our young daughter - no glass coffee tables or sharp edged furniture.
