Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: I am in my early 50's, as is my husband. We moved from Michigan in 2006 after my husband received a 'forced' retirement from General Motors. Living in Alabama was a lifelong dream of mine, as I had visited different parts of the state many times. Fortunately my husband fell in love with the beach too. He is currently working at an airplane manufacturing company in Foley, while I am temporarily between jobs. We hope someday to actually truly retire and look forward to staying at Summer House with an indefinite length of time - no end date to head somewhere else! Added note: April 2011: We just returned from a week cruising the Hawaiian Islands. It was beautiful -BUT- as soon as we could the same day we returned, we headed for Summer House to enjoy OUR BEACH...just as pretty to us!

Why the Owner Chose Orange Beach, AL, USA:
In 1989 my family began vacationing in Orange Beach. We loved it so much we purchased a two bed/two bath ocean SIDE condo up the street from Summer House. WE loved THAT so much we knew we would want to retire here someday, and needed a bigger condo to accommodate our children and their families later. In checking the different resorts, Summer House stood out way ahead of any other condo around. I remember looking up at the building from the two-tiered pool side and asking my husband if he thought we could ever be able to be so fortunate to own a unit there! In 1997 our dream was realized as we bought 1406A. We have since retired and moved nearby, not quite able to afford full time retirement at the beach just yet. But we visit weekly, if not daily, and take tremendous pride in keeping it in the 'ahhh' category we first experienced when we entered our condo. We hope you feel the same.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The balcony is number one - to eat, rest or visit on. Walking the beach, the indoor pool and jacuzzi. Nearby shopping is so convenient for fun or groceries. Sometimes we have forgotten how much fun it is to play miniature golf with family of all ages! Personally, I prefer to just do dolphin watch 8-10 hours a day from the boardwalk by the pool. I used to offer a dollar to the first person who could spot a dolphin for me! Still works to this day!
