We've added extra storage cabinets in both bathrooms and more towel racks and robe hooks for your convenience. You will even find wooden clothes hangers and extra storage racks in the closets. Nothing has been forgotten. Your stay will be perfect!

As you enter the condominium you will feel right at home. The decor is upscale but relaxing. The kitchen, dining room and living room are open and inviting with high ceilings and floor to ceiling views of the Gulf.

This unit has it all! In the living room you will find a state-of-the-art 37' LCD television, a Blu-ray player and 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound so that you can gather the family for a great movie. The main stereo has iPod integration and master bedroom speakers available with the flip of a switch. If you have 'gamers' in the group, there's even a game port extension cord wired to the TV so that connections to your game console can be made easily in front of the TV.

The luxury kitchen, with granite counter tops & a designer sink, has everything you need and want to prepare that gourmet meal. All utensils, cookware, dinnerware, and small appliances are brand new. We are sure this kitchen will meet your dining and/or entertaining needs.

There is a pantry with plenty of shelves, plus cabinet storage galore. There is a breakfast bar with seating for three. The dining room table is table height and comfortably seats six.

The laundry room, with its wainscoting and many hooks, is the perfect spot for all your beach gear. There is a full-size washer and dryer complete with laundry baskets and plastic hangers for those who like to return home with clean clothes.

The master bedroom features a king-size canopy bed with a plush-top mattress and lots of pillows. The colors are warm and inviting. Beautiful lamps on each bedside table invite you to crawl into bed to read or to watch the 32' LCD TV which has built in DVD, and plays audio CD's and mp3 discs.

The guest bedroom features a plush-top queen-size mattress, lovely bedding with lots of pillows and it's own 26' LCD TV that has a built in DVD player and also plays audio CD's or mp3 discs.

The bunk room is truly private and not just two bunks in a hallway. There is a chest for storage and fabulous bedding! These bunk beds DO NOT have the standard bunked mattresses. They have twin 10' plush-top mattresses which will comfortably sleep adults. The bunk room also has dual 22' LCD TV's with DVD players so that each bunk has it's own TV. There's a great stereo DVD/CD/MP3 player capable of providing amazing sound for your entertainment.

The bunk room and guest room share an updated guest bath which joins the guest room and opens to the hallway as well.

Remember, all linens are furnished, so all you need to bring is a beach towel or two.

About Angie

We are a family from North Alabama that loves the sandy white beaches of Gulf Shores.

Angie purchased this condo in 2010

Why Angie chose Gulf Shores

We rented at the Lighthouse the first season it opened and we thought it was great! While looking for a condo to buy, we visited quite a few other properties but kept coming back to The Lighthouse because we felt it offered the most amenities and the best location for our family and our guests. We hope you agree.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nice overall!

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and the perfect fit for our family.

The only disappointment was the lack of amenities and the darkness of the unit (minor but the lighting was really bad). I would’ve appreciated knowing exactly what was and wasn’t included in the unit.

Not included: beach towels, beach or pool toys, beach accessories of any kind, trash bags (no extras), toilet paper (no extra, only what’s in the roll), dishwasher detergent (they only included 2 pods), etc.

The rest of our family who stayed in another unit had all of the aforementioned supplies included.

I think it would be beneficial to include some of those things on the description so you can bring items from home if desired.

Wonderful Condo in an awesome building!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second family vacation to the Lighthouse Condos in Gulf Shores and we love this building so much. It is very family friendly and the fact there is an indoor pool means that even if the weather isn’t “beach worthy”, there is still someplace for the kids to play. Condo 1211 is very clean and had everything we needed to make this a great family trip.
