About Bobby Stephens

We are a family from the New Orleans area and have been visiting Orange Beach for many years. We love the beautiful sugar sandy beach and the clear emerald water just three hours from our home. Our favorite beach activity is watching the dolphins play in the Gulf from our balcony!

Bobby Stephens purchased this condo in 2009

Why Bobby Stephens chose Alabama

We love the central location of the Tidewater and easy access to so many activities and shopping. We are about 15 minutes from the huge Tanger Factory Outlet mall in Foley and 15 minutes from the Pensacola Naval Air Museum (a favorite of our children and it is FREE). The Tidewater is across the street from a marina, restaurants, and a short walk to a public fishing area. There is a water park less than 10 minutes away and several grocery stores are minutes away.

What makes this condo unique

The Tidewater is a low density condo boasting a large uncrowded beach, yet all of the amenities needed for a great vacation are here! This 1000sq. ft. unit is steps to the elevator, over looks the pool and is right on the GULF! We enjoy morning coffee and breakfast on the balcony and watching the spectacular sunsets on the beach to close out our day.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Fabulous beach! Fabulous balcony! Great fun boogie boarding in the Gulf! Peaceful easy feeling on the uncrowded beaches! Wish we could stay longer!!

Everything as advertised! Great property in a family friendly beach location!

  • 5 of 5

Great week at Orange Beach. The condo and the amenities at Tidewater were the highlight of our trip. Easy access to the beach, which at times was almost deserted which was surprising given that it was spring break. The condo was as advertised .. very relaxed feel and had everything we needed to feel at home. We enjoyed the beautiful view from the balcony. The condominium itself is very family friendly. Highly recommend booking this condo and visiting Orange Beach if you are looking for a relaxing beach vacation for your family. 5 Stars!

Perfect time to go

  • 5 of 5

The condo itself was in the perfect location, very central. The beds very comfortable with plenty of pillows, blankets. The living room furniture was also very comfy. The view was perfection. We were technically challenged with figuring out the TV, but who is there to watch TV all day when you have the ocean to watch. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a meal. Maybe fixing the balcony chairs would be in order. I loved how tall they were but the bottom rung on 2 had a sharp screw sticking out that could scratch your leg deeply, we were mindful of such. We loved this time of year with all the snowbirds, everyone friendly, talkative and quiet !!! We will definitely rebook this condo if we have the opportunity again. We usual come to GS and stay in a house with a larger family. You will enjoy your stay here. The hot tub, and heated pool and added plus and lovely.

Fabulous condo and host

  • 5 of 5

Bobby was a wonderful host! Excellent communication and he provided a list of things to do while visiting. The condo is even better than what you can see on line. We loved the serenity of the location and gorgeous beach. While you are in this area, drive over to Pensacola to see the Blue Angels and to Mobile to see the USS Alabama. Cosmos in Orange Beach is an excellent choice for a wonderful meal. We would not hesitate to rent from Bobby again. Everything was excellent! Thank you so much for helping to make our 32nd wedding anniversary so enjoyable!!
