About the property

Condominium, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

We invite you to stay in our family's home-away-from-home at the sugary white beaches at #906 Crystal Shores Condominiums!!!

From our condo, the beach is 'at your doorstep'... no long boardwalks or dragging beach chairs and coolers across miles of sand, parking lots, or street crossings.

Crystal Shores was built in 2004 and is a low density building with a large beach area. We are surrounded by restaurants, grocery stores and activities for the children. The area is quiet and family oriented. Walk to the Hangout, Sea & Suds, Pink Pony and lots of great shops! Beautiful views!

We have a very clean and newly re-decorated 2 bedroom, 2 bath condominium. This smoke-free, pet-free, condo sleeps 5-6 comfortably. The kitchen is well stocked and has beautiful granite tops. There is queen size bed in the master bedroom and this bedroom has an adjoining full bath. The guest bedroom has a queen size bed and has a private shower/tub adjoining bathroom. There is also a queen size sleeper sofa in the den.

The master bedroom and living room both have sliding glass doors that open to your beach front balcony. The balcony has a patio table and chairs where you can sit back and watch the waves roll in. There is also a full size washer/dryer.

On site, there is an in-door/out-door pool connected by a swim-through feature, game room, exercise room, sauna, and assigned covered parking. FREE WIFI internet service.

At beach-side, come take a dip in the swim-through indoor/outdoor heated pool and hot tub. What a fabulous way to enjoy the beautiful sunshine and stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

After you swim, soak in the sauna, baste in the sun, then top off you day at the grill where you can cook steaks and any fish that may have found their way onto your hook!

Great shopping nearby which include the Tanger Outlet Mall, Target, Wal-Mart, lots of beach/souvenir/special stores etc...

If you are a golfer, there are LOTS of very nice golf courses in the area... There is also lots of delicious food served at various restaurants in the area, water park, a zoo, miniature golf, Tract Amusement Park... etc. Details on all these sites/activities can be obtained when you arrive from the visitors center located very close to this condo on Highway 59.

This is a NON-smoking unit, NO pets allowed, NO exceptions!

*** I primarily rent by the week... Saturday to Saturday. There my be some exceptions to fill last minute holes on my calendar.

Wonderful Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Melanie!! We had a fabulous view from the balcony! If we weren't on the beach, we were on the balcony. Our condo was perfect for us! Beautifully decorated and efficiently supplied with anything you could possibly need! We chose to fix our meals in the condo for most of our stay, but we did walk to pub style restaurant one night. We loved the laid back atmosphere of the area. We will definitely be back and hopefully stay in the same condo! This was a first for us and it could not have been more perfect!! Thanks again Melanie!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Lori! So glad you enjoyed the condo and the beach! It is so beautiful in Gulf Shores during this time of the year. The direct view of the ocean is certainly one of the best features of this condo and the fully equipped kitchen comes in handy for in-condo cooking. I look forward to hear from you again when you visit Gulf Shores again!!!

Paradise in Gulf Shores

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Melanie's condo the last two years. The interior is so pretty and the accommodations are first rate. It was very clean. The direct view of the gulf from the balcony is outstanding. We were fortunate to see some dolphins and can't wait to visit again. The owner is a really nice person.

Perfect Beach Week

  • 5 of 5

Melanie's condo was a great fit for our family of 4. Terrific location right on the beach,. It was nice having two full bathrooms. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed for dining in. There was a small grocery/convenience store across the street which made it easy to pick up last minute items. The condo was clean, and beds were comfortable. We lucked out with a rain free week, and weather near 80 degrees every day. It was our first trip to the Gulf Shores, and we will now keep this as one of our beach vacation options!
