Our 3 bedroom, 2 full bath unit sleeps up to 8 individuals. It is located just east of Gulf State Park in Orange Beach. It is an ideal location directly on the beach, close to all that Orange Beach and Gulf Shores have to offer. Our unit is up on the 8th floor for fantastic views. Lots of seating is available with an open floor plan, ideal for a comfortable beach vacation. King beds are in each of the three bedrooms along with large HDTVs. A forth bed is a murphy bed (the type that pulls down from the wall so it is a regular, comfortable bed). Please note this bed is located in the dining room - set back opposite from the kitchen - to sleep 2 additional people (it is somewhat private but does not have doors to close).
The kitchen is large with a kitchen table and a separate dining room table for plenty of seating.
The balcony overlooks the beach with a direct view. We are a corner unit on the west side of the building. The beach front area has a children’s play area, a completely separate indoor pool, sauna, hot tub, steam room, large exercise room, gazebo, propane grilling area, outdoor fireplace, and infinity edge outdoor pool. A short boardwalk takes you right to the water's edge.

We love the beach and purchased this as an entire family (2 parents and 5 children and their children).
Jim purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Jim chose Orange Beach
Escapes is a gorgeous property with a first class pool, gazebo, grilling area, and exercise room. We also absolutely loved the large space and size of this property, a lot of people can fit comfortably in this unit.
What makes this Condo unique
We love the ability to have a big meal in the dining room with plenty of space to sit and talk. We also love the convenience of many area attractions and of course the beach views!

Very large & clean!
The condo was very spacious & clean! A few minor housekeeping issues that I will share with owner. The outside pool is NOT heated & the hot tub is way too hot. There is not a way to lower the temp on it. This property is not managed by Festiva, which we were told several times by the woman at the desk when we were checking in. She was not very welcoming and I think that was why. Luckily, the lady at check out was very kind! We enjoyed using the outdoor grills. There were issues with igniters not working so you had to use a lighter. There was one in the condo-awesome! The bed in the master is VERY firm, perhaps a foam topper would be a good idea. We loved watching the dolphins from our balcony! We looked at booking again for next year but price is nearly doubled?!?!
Orange beach rocks!!
was nice....would stay again
Big! I mean huge beautiful condo in Orange Beach
This is by far the biggest condo I have stayed in and we had a great time. I will try to give pros and cons below. I did not know for sure if this was on the Perdido side or Orange beach side but coming out of Gulf State Park going into Orange Beach it's about a mile past the Orange Beach sign.
Pros: Size, the size was big. the bedrooms are big with a king bed in one room and queens in the other two. There is plenty of room for 6 and maybe 8 people comfortably if a few are kids. There is a Murphy bed in the kitchen that lets down that looks like it would sleep two small people.
Clean: I thought it was very clean and all of the appliances are up to date and work well.
View: The view from the balcony is great and is right on the ocean.
Price: I understand we went in February so the rates are going to be lower but so are everyone else's rates at other places. The price for what we got was very reasonable.
TV: The TV was an HD Vizio and had Dish Network hooked up which was nice to have.
Bathrooms and Bedrooms: The size was great in the master bedroom and bathroom. In the master we had two sinks so getting ready to go out was not a problem for a couple of people. The bedrooms are all equipped with a TV and plenty of room.
Beds: Well, it was just me and my wife but the master bed was firm to very firm I guess and we slept very well.
Communication from Owner: Jim was quick to communicate with us. I only texted him but he got back quickly on a couple of different occasions.
Elevators: I have been to the beach and the elevators have been horrible. That is not the case here. They worked the whole time and are extremely fast.
Internet: The unit had a hit or miss wifi. I spoke with Jim and he said to get the manager to reset it but it just never functioned right. I have to have good internet for work so I always carry a hot-spot with me so it wound up not being a big deal.
Patio deck: I'm not sure if Jim is in a change but there was no furniture on the patio and that was actually a big deal to us because we really like to sit out there and was the main reason we get a condo that's on the beach with a beach side view.
Overall if I had to rate our stay I would say a 9 out of 10 with the only real downside to the whole thing was the no furniture on the deck. I look forward to staying again.
I appreciate your thorough review. I apologize about the balcony furniture. In late 2017 the building was repairing balconies, and the pool area. They removed all the furniture from balconies and we thought ours were returned but since found out it has not. We are still trying to track this down but will either get our balcony furniture back by March 1 or we'll replace it when we go down the last week of February. Sorry for the inconvenience I truly didn't know the furniture was still missing.
Loved this place! Extremely clean, very well updated, lots of room!
this place! Extremely clean, very well updated, lots of room! This condo was awesome. The bedrooms are very well sized. The bathrooms are very big. The kitchen is very spacious, and it has lots of supplies. The staff is very helpful. We will definitely stay here again.
Wonderful place, can't wait for construction to be done.
My wife and I and our four children stayed at the escapes to the shores two years ago and loved our stay. Last year we stayed at the Phoenix West two and that was very nice as well, but we liked your scapes better because it felt smaller and more convenient and easier to get from your room to the beach and back without having to wait on an elevator or travel a long distance. This year he escapes was under construction and so we missed sitting on our balcony watching the dolphins play however the owner did give us a nice discount to make up for the loss of the balcony and the outdoor pool. My wife and I are early risers so the sound of the construction did not bother us much but if you plan on sleeping in past 8 AM you may want to consider a different location. However if you don't mind getting up before 8 AM and you're looking for a great deal on a beachfront condo and don't care about the lack of view from your balcony escapes May be a good deal for you as it was for us. Construction is scheduled to be completed around August 2017 so if you're planning to visit Orange Beach in the fall this might be a good place for you as well. Hope this helps you with your vacation plans. We love Orange Beach! And will return again
The place was great! The only drawback was the construction that was going on. But we were tild.
The property was great. Furnished well and extremely roomy. Great location to shops and restaurants. Fun , quiet place.
