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!!

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!!

Best yet

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Orange Beach for almost 10 years. This was the best stay yet. We had a family of 5. Me and my husband, our 3 year old, my mom and dad. It was so enjoyable and relaxing. The unit is very well equipped. The full size laundry room with closet and full size washer and dryer was a very convenient in keeping sand toys and wagons from being tracked through the unit. The balcony was very large and had enough seating for all. Bathrooms were ample size also. The unit was very clean and we had nothing to complain about. The pool was large and very quiet. I can't say enough about how enjoyable our stay was. The owners were very personable and helpful. No question was left unanswered. This unit will definitely be our new beach tradition.

New Orange Beach Favorite

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th trip to Orange Beach and the 5th place we've stayed, but I think now we've found a home! The condo was great and had everything we needed to accommodate a family of 5. We cooked almost every night and the kitchen had everything we needed - even for a Louisiana shrimp boil!

As a mom with 3 little boys I appreciated the laundry area with shelves to sort the laundry as I went. So nice to come home with all clean clothes!

Location was great too. We just walked across the road to eat at Shrimp Basket and get ice cream. The beach location was awesome! Good space between Tidewater & the next condo so I did not feel too crowded or lose sight of my kids.

Overall great place!

Owner's Response: Mindy, We can taste those fresh boiled shrimp! Being from New Orleans we eat them all of the time, my wife's favorite seafood! So glad the condo had all you needed. Please keep us in mind when you return to Orange Beach as we would love to have you back! We offer discounts to our returning guests so be sure to let us know you are returning and thanks for your kind words. Bobby and Tangie

5th year at this great condo!

  • 5 of 5

As the title states, this was our 5th consecutive year staying at Tidewater 208. We consider it or second home. The condo is beautifully decorated, shopping and restaurants close by, the beach is your back yard, what else could you want? The owners are wonderful to work with! Thanks Bobby & Tangie, you always go above and beyond. There is a new beach rule, no belongings can be left overnight on the beach. However, there is a large bin at the end of the boardwalk that you can store tents and chairs in overnight. While we did not use it, many others did and I did not hear of any problems with that. You will not be sorry staying at this condo.

Enjoyed our stay

Beautiful beach & pool view

Condo was clean, well equipped except no hair dryer. The lounge chair on balcony has seen better days. We did enjoy the high top table & chairs.

The a/c was cooling but in the very hot summer could be an issue. We did tell Brett Robinson management upon checking out.

The owners are very nice & sent emails with great instructions. Easy check in & out.

Owner's Response: Lisa, Thanks for the review! We love the bar height chairs and table on the balcony, they allow us to see over the railing and watch the dolphins swim with an unubstructed view! Thanks for letting management know about the a/c, they cleaned it and all is well! Hope you consider us again in the future, we love our returning guests and offer a discount!

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beachfront condo! The unit was decorated beautifully, and fit our family of 4 perfectly. The lounger on the balcony was my personal favorite. The condo was Spotless!! We look forward to visiting it again soon.
