Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Ocean House complex is located directly on the sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico, less than a mile west of Highway 59, Gulf Shores' main hub. Besides the fantastic location, guests can enjoy features like easy access to the beach, swimming in Gulf Shores' longest pool, Wi-Fi access, and beautifully landscaped grounds with two gazebos, two kiddie pools and a BBQ area.

Our three bedroom, corner unit has breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico from a large beach-side balcony and beautiful sights of Little Lagoon and Bon Secour Bay from the master bedroom balcony. Each bedroom offers a comfortable place to relax each night and private bathrooms with a tub/ shower. The living and dining rooms are decorated nicely and have plenty of space to relax or entertain. The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the tools needed to make a feast, has ample counter and cabinet space and includes the convenience of a washer/dryer in unit.

We've gone to great lengths to make our condo a 'home away from home' for ourselves and guests, so whether you enjoy lounging on the beach, some of the best golf Alabama has to offer, or taking bike rides down Ocean Beach Boulevard this is the perfect rental for you.

About Colleen Stephenson

We are from the Metro-Milwaukee area of Wisconsin (West Bend) and do everything that we can to escape the Midwest and visit Gulf Shores at least twice a year. Colleen, Angela and Joe

Colleen Stephenson purchased this condo in 1998

Why Colleen Stephenson chose Alabama

The weather in the Midwest can be pretty unforgiving, especially in Winter, so we started making annual trips to Gulf Shores over 18 years ago to enjoy a slice of paradise. After stays in a few different condo complexes, we found Ocean House was our favorite for many reasons and decided to become owners.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is a corner unit with two balconies, perfect for dolphin spotting in the early morning. Privacy is something we value and Ocean House affords that by only having 6 units on each floor making for a peaceful stay. It's just a short walk to the many convenience stores, gift shops and beach side restaurants that line Ocean Beach Boulevard so you couldn't ask for a better location.

Great beach condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Gulf Shores and couldn't have been more pleased with this beachfront condo! Loved being on the top floor and spending mornings and evenings overlooking the ocean. Our family of 8 had plenty of room and never ran out of hot water with all the showering and laundry. Colleen was wonderful to work with and we have booked again for next year. Our grandkids loved the pool and being so close to the beach. We are already looking forward to next year! Thank you Colleen!

Definitely will be back

  • 5 of 5

Colleen was super responsive to any request/need we came across while in Gulf Shores. The condo is a perfect place for a family vacation (even when TS Cindy stopped for two days of rain). We have been coming to Gulf Shores for 5 years running and this was our favorite condo. We loved it so much we already booked for next year!!!

You can't go wrong with this condo...

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a marvelous time at Ocean House. By far the best condo on the beach, and definitely the best pool in Gulf Shores. And, Colleen is the best owner we have ever dealt with. If you have a problem, and let her know, she and her staff will take care of it pronto. Condo has everything you will need. Very clean, updated, and well stocked. Highly recommend. Can't wait till next year.

Excellent Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo! Our family has stayed in Gulf Shores every summer for a number of years. This condo is the best we have stayed in. It isn't the most luxurious, no granite counter tops or tile showers. So, if you want "up scale" this might not be for you. But it is very nicely furnished and comes with the extras that make a stay so much nicer. Plenty of extra pillows and blankets. Rugs by every bed side for that last attempt to get all the sand from your feet. Enough dishes and utensils for a large family. Great beachy decor and probably one of the cleanest places we have been in too! Definitely a five star condo.
