Why Shirley chose Orange Beach

Orange Beach is a fabulous vacation destination and Emerald Key's location is what sold me....3 shopping centers right across the street make it so easy and convenient to shop for everything you need. I love the fact that Emerald Key is a low density building. There are only 18 condos in the whole building which means our pool and beach don't get over crowded.

What makes this condo unique

The most unique benefit of renting this condo is the fact that I am personally at the condo, along with my housekeepers, on Saturday ensuring that it is as clean and tidy as I would like to find a vacation home I had rented. Of course the beautiful artwork and the fabulous balcony views are a definite plus.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow. All I can say. I have really enjoyed my time here with my family. This is such a beautiful place. The art is very original. I love it. I'm kinda sad I have to leave. It's so peacefull here. You can open the glass doors and just listen to the waves. You have done a wonderful job taking care of this place. I really hope to come back next year.

Best views on the beach! And the condo is fantastic! Shirley is wonderful and went above and beyond to be sure our stay was memorable. We have stayed in many condos over the years, and this one tops the list! Close to the water, and convenient to everything.

Perfect for a peaceful vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (including two young children) stayed here for spring break, and we were delighted with the property. The condo was so comfortable and homey -- it was simply lovely to come "home" every afternoon and evening. The condo came with all the items we needed from the kitchen (we cooked dinner several nights), and we had plenty of space. Everything was very clean, with plenty of extra blankets and enough towels. The WD was great; it was nice to have clean towels and swimsuits. I so appreciated all of the fans throughout the condo -- we were always perfectly comfortable. We also liked that the beach wasn't very crowded due to the smaller condo complex and those nearby. The propoerty's proximity to restaurants and shops made walking around easy. Orange Beach as a whole was wonderful -- everything was less than 10 min drive away, and the traffic was a non-issue. We will definitely make another visit in the future!

All shopping and eating are easy to get to. The condo was perfect and the owner is very friendly and acommodating. We are looking forward to another stay there in the near future.

5 Stars all the way

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect condo for our beach vacation! The condo is in a great location with the right combination of convenience to grocieries and essentials, restaurants, and the BEACH, all while having low enough traffic to give us the feeling of having the beach "all to our selves!" The sunrise and sunset views were spectacular from the balcony as the location is in the just right spot. The condo was sparkling clean, fresh, and inviting upon our arrival with all the home essentials and even much more. We had everything we needed! And the owner was a pleasure to work with and really helpful with all our questions about the area. This is our new favorite spot! We'll see you again soon!

Texas Family Beach Week

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four really enjoyed our week in Orange Beach. We have stayed in many other locations at OB and this is one of the best! Very nice, comfortable, and not crowded...really liked the low density building and the corner unit! Shirley runs a first class outfit and we will definitely look at her place again for next year!
