Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This beautiful three bedroom condominium is located at The Whaler a small quiet complex of only 27 units on the beach in Gulf Shores. The beauty of this recently renovated gulf front unit is that all three bedrooms have a view of the beach. The Whaler has a large beach front pool that is just steps off the sparkling white beach with plenty of areas to lounge in & out of the sun. It’s a short distance to the waters edge with plenty of places to eat within walking distance (e.g. The Hangout).

This unit has three large bedrooms and 2 baths with a beautiful balcony accessible from both the living room & master bedroom and is located on the third floor making it just as easy to take the stairs as the elevator. All floors are ceramic tiled. The master bedroom has a king bed and the attached master bath has a granite countertop, hammered copper sink and jetted tub. Not only is there a window overlooking the Gulf from the master bedroom but there is also a sliding glass door for access to the balcony. The second bedroom has a queen bed and also has a window facing the Gulf. The third bedroom has twin beds and because the building is at an angle, the window in this room also affords a view of the Gulf. Both these bedrooms share a bath with granite countertops & a hammered copper sink. The modern stainless steel kitchen with granite countertops boasts all your traditional appliances.

There is not a better place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or to have a cocktail watching the sunset than off the balcony of this unit.

About Dia Napolitano

My husband & I grew up in New Orleans and have spent many vacations on the beach. It's always been a dream of ours to own a place on the beach where we can retire to in our later years. There is something so peaceful about hearing the surf of the Gulf.

Dia Napolitano purchased this condo in 2007

Why Dia Napolitano chose Alabama

We love Gulf Shores because of the beautiful white beaches and that it is driving distance from our home in New Orleans.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is unique in that all three bedrooms have a view of the Gulf. We have the front of the building so one room gets the sunrise while the master bedroom catches the sunset.

Excelletn time at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Two families spent a week at the beach for our oldest sons' baseball tournament. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate for a couple of days and the beach was closed (Tropical Storm Cindy); however, with the multiple TVs, convenient location, and ample room, staying in doors with 4 kids and 4 adults was not an issue. We will definitely stay here again.

Great condo to enjoy the beach Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time. The condo was exactly what we needed and had even more than anticipated. We loved being right on the ocean and enjoying the deck to just sit any time of the day and look at the water. The condo was clean and ready for us to start our nice vacation. I love how their is a book to leave your experiences and read everyone else's experiences. I highly recommend this condo. Great walk to the pier, hangout and shops. Thank you again!!!

Pretty dated, but nice

  • 4 of 5

The place is nice, not great. The owner's description on VRBO is accurate, but there is some work that could be done inside - just general updating. There was an awful sewer smell coming from the utility closet one day, but only lasted half the day and never happened again. We were unlucky in that one of the other tenets decided to remodel his place the week we were there. There was only one day we couldn't be in the condo at all because of the construction noise, but it was disappointing we weren't warned beforehand. It didn't reflect poorly on the owner; I called her and she didn't know anything about it. Just a warning sign of potential issues from the lack of communication between owners and the property manager. The view is perfect. We couldn't hear the people staying in other condos and many were partying hard for spring break; that quietness impressed me. It is definitely better than one of the massive high rise properties in my opinion. The location is good, but not that big of a deal to me because most of the places I wanted or needed to go were not within walking distance.

No surprises with this vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Everything posted about this rental is as posted, no hassles or having to deal with the uncomfortable; we are on vacation! The owners are great to work with and the condo has ALWAYS been clean, in great shape and ready when we arrive. I said always because this condo accommodates us consistently so well; why would we want to keep looking or shop for better deals, or a better view? Here, you are on the beach, with the water about 50 yards from our condo's deck, just about 20 feet off the sand. Dollar for dollar this condo exceeds the other rentals. The hi-rises are all in a more noisy and crowded environment.

This rental has the best deal for our dollar, so this rental is where we stay when we come to Gulf Shores. It is a comfort to know our paid for accommodations will not disappoint us.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Property was as depicted. Great pool with a true deep end. Super easy beach access. Best in the off season if you're not in to crowds. We'd stay here again for sure!
