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.

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!

It was perfect! We had 3 adults & 4 children with plenty of space. The condo has an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The condo had absolutely everything you could need or want in a vacation stay. We had 3 adults & 4 children. The view is so amazing and so close to the water that we could let the 2 teens go to the beach and we could keep an eye on them. The condo was so clean and had very nice and comfortable furnishings. I have taken my family to Gulf Shores a few times and this is the best condo we have stayed in thus far!

Beautiful Oceanfront Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this condo was perfect. We saw dolphins from the balcony every morning. The layout was very unique. Everything was updated and it was furnished beautifully. I would definitely stay here again!

Very nice property. Quiet building. Quiet end of the strip

  • 3 of 5

The condo was beautiful. Amenities were very nice. The pool was closed the entirety of our stay. While the condo appeared very clean, I noticed early on the floors were filthy. I tend to enjoy being barefooted. The first day I thought maybe it was from the beach or parking lot. The second day it was around noon, hadn't left the condo and my feet were pitch black. Whoever is cleaning for the owner is sweeping the floors, but not mopping them. I had to wash my feet several times as I'd forget I needed to either wear socks or sandals. It's my hope that this get remedied so other vacationers don't have this problem. Other than that, our stay was wonderful.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. The woman that cleans our condo typically does a fabulous job. We have never had complaints before. I will make sure that this gets remedied immediately. We are actually going down today so will be able to check for ourselves. Thank you again, Dia I just got this reply from the Heather who cleans for us..........."They were mopped and I just steam cleaned them, weird". I also checked with the building management about the pool. They said they closed the pool to resurface it, sorry about that. I will ask at our owner's meeting this weekend why the didn't notify us. Wish you had called while you were there so I could have checked then because they said they made the pool next door available to our guests.

Perfect Spring Break girls trip!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was beautiful and in a great location, close to many restaurants and The Hangout! The layout was perfect for us and the combination lock was so convenient for the kids coming in and out. Unfortunately, it was a little chilly and the pool was closed but it looked clean. Will for sure come back!
