About the property

Spacious and Clean Beach Front Condo, 2 Br/2 Ba plus 2 Sofa Beds (Sleeps 4-7).

*Exterior renovations are in progress at the complex; they are stripping and replacing the stucco surfaces. Currently (as of June 23, 2017) all of the balconies are blocked off, but will reopen as each section is completed. Expected completion for our balcony is July 1st. The plastic that was covering our sliding glass door (blocking the view) has been removed. In addition, the outdoor pool and back deck area (including gas grills and outdoor fireplace) will not be available for use until late October. The interior pool area (including a large climate controlled pool and deck, hot tub, exercise room, sauna, steam-room) is fully functional and will remain open along with complete access to the beach and boardwalk.

*Due to these limitations we have lowered our prices by 20% or more for the Summer (discounts are already reflected in our current pricing; see below). Weekly rates also reflect our '7th Night Free' discount.

*We respond to inquiries quickly (many within 30 minutes)...if more than 4 hours has passed and you haven't received a response, then please check your spam folder.

The building is directly on the beach overlooking the sparkling waters of Orange Beach and the Gulf of Mexico.

The condo itself has many extras that you don't commonly find in other rental units. We have a decked out kitchen with all of the power appliances you should need to cook even a Holiday meal, plenty of fluffy towels (including beach towels), DVD libraries for kids and parents, wireless internet, separate showers and jetted tubs in both bathrooms, and much more.

Well-situated near restaurants, shopping centers, entertainment, and other activities; this coveted Orange Beach condominium is an ideal place for your next sun laden excursion.

We hope you enjoy your vacation, wherever you may decide to stay.

In 2011 Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, Alabama was the only beach area along the whole of the Gulf Coast to receive multiple five star ratings (only 14 locations in the United States were given this stamp of quality) from the Natural Resources Defense Council. **Update for 2013: The 2012 report is out and once again Gulf Shores/Orange Beach was the only area along the Gulf Coast to receive a 5 star rating. Only 11 other beaches in the United States received this distinction.

(Parking Passes are good throughout your stay.)

About Rus Camus

We're just a simple family from New Orleans that enjoys vacationing in Orange Beach, Alabama.

Rus Camus purchased this condo in 2009

Why Rus Camus chose Alabama

The Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area, located on the southern shores of Alabama, is a great place to vacation. Not too far a drive from many states, it is very clean and has a good balance of people (not overly crowded), great food, multiple types of entertainment (theme parks, golf, parasailing, fishing, etc.), and don't forget the warm sun, white sands and pounding surf. As for the complex, Escapes! to the Shores is one of the best and roomiest condominiums in Gulf Shores. The amenities are second to none. It's right on the beach in the heart of Orange Beach with Gulf Shores just 4 miles to the west and Perdido Key, Florida 6 miles to the east.

What makes this condo unique

We have a number of extras not commonly found in most condos. There are jetted tubs with separate glassed showers in both bathrooms (the master bath has side sprayers), large flat screens/DVD players in den/bedrooms, 2 movie libraries (one for kids), wireless internet, washer/dryer, and a kitchen which includes blender, mini-chopper, food processor, coffee maker (and grinder), toaster, crock pot, and even a bread maker.

Orange Beach Gem

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful condo is in a great building with great amenities: one of the nicest indoor pools I've ever seen, in addition to the outdoor pool, outdoor grilling area, hot tub, sauna and steam room. But, it's the unit itself that will really seal the deal- spacious right from the entry hall, two master bedroom suites separate from each other with beautiful bathrooms, a modern open kitchen, and best of all, a sweeping 180 degree view of the beach from the 16th floor- higher than any other building around it. Rus, the owner, was extremely accessible and accommodating. when we had a problem with the balcony door, he had it fixed immediately. The building's staff was also very friendly and helpful (especially Michael). In short, perfect!
