About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-6)

Temporary! Prices Reduced due to Construction and closure of Unit Balcony and outside Pool area. At the owners meeting we were informed that the all balconies will be closed for the next three to six months to correct damage from water intrusion into the balcony supports. This effects handrails only, but was caught long before it became an issue. But while we will end with a better unit, right now the door to the balcony has become a window: the door is locked from the outside and will not open.

It is for this reason, we are offering this unit at $100.00 off per night. The unit is still very nice. The beach is obviously open and accessible as well as the inside amenities: the indoor pool, steam room, sauna and workout room.

This unit, located on the 13th floor, is a spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath. Both bedrooms and bathrooms are VIP quality: while both bedrooms offer a king bed, the guest room has two east-facing windows which keeps the room light and airy. Both bathrooms offer a jetted tub and separate shower but master shower has double shower heads w/side sprayers.

The common living areas of this unit are what sold us. It is a large unit with almost 1,700 square feet. We have stayed at other condos but this is the first two bedroom we've seen that has the open floor space to not feel like you're tripping over anyone else.

Another unique feature of this unit is the side arch on the balcony. While our balcony directly overlooks the Gulf, the side arch (available on corner units only) provides a view of both down the beach and the back bay. My favorite picture is a night shot looking through the arch seeing the red lights of the other condos lined up down the beach. It also provides breezes when the wind blows from the north

While not an actual amenity, on-site check-in means that there is no driving around town to get a key...or drop one off. One less thing to worry about.

Location

Relaxing is a must here but each unit has WiFi for those who cannot completely detach. I would also recommend touring the Pensacola Air Museum (approximately 30 minutes away) or Fort Morgan (approximately 45 minutes away).

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Orange Beach, AL, USA:
We love this unit for so many reasons: The size of the unit, the fact that it is a corner unit with windows and better views, location (there are restaurants and amusements within walking distance) and on-site staff.
