Only 11 other beaches in the United States received this distinction.

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 Orange Beach

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.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The condo had everything we needed, from dishwasher tablets to laundry detergent. The view is amazing from the 16th floor! The indoor pool and hot tub was awesome and my kids had a wonderful time! We can't wait to return.

Great trip

We've really enjoyed staying in the Escapes over the years. The renovations look great and the unit is very well kept and nicely furnished. Thanks for the opportunity to stay there. Look forward to a return trip soon.

Fabulous view, spotless, spacious

  • 4 of 5

This condo is great. The only thing that kept it from a five is the pool renovation, but that’s out of the owner’s control. The property will be even more stunning when it’s complete.

Orange Beach Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Loved Orange Beach, the locals are so nice and helpful. It's clean with no signs having a anatomical feature on it, no drunken parties, great parking, large rooms, and courteous personnel at the complex!
