Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

This third floor condo is one of the closest in Orange Beach to the water. Let the sound of the surf relax your mind as your eyes wander over the expansive gulf views. This is the third unit east of Perdido Pass (Alabama Point Bridge) which is next to a preserve. This is a low density complex and the pools are not on the beachside, which translates to 'quiet beachfront'.

This recently updated condo is perfect for a romantic get away, or a small family vacation. Enjoy the amenities such as a flat screen HDTV with cable, internet access and a view of the gulf while cooking dinner in the full kitchen!

********************************************************

'The location could not be better. It's in the middle

of everything.' -- Liz Hernandez, Violet, La.

********************************************************

Extensive Lei Lani amenities include beautiful quiet beach front, two outdoor pools, indoor beachfront heated pool, tennis court, outdoor grills and picnic areas, Old River access with boat dock, covered picnic areas, beachside bathroom and changing areas, beachfront chair, umbrella and water craft rentals, and more.

From the front door, your toes can hit the sand in under a minute!

Built in phases since 1983, the family friendly Lei Lani condo complex is one of the few developments on Perdido Key that is located both on the beach and Old River. This unit is located in the tower on the Beach with private balcony - the sunrise and sunset can both be seen and are unbelievably beautiful! See our photos to truly appreciate all the views from our unit.

********************************************************

'In one day, my daughter and I went crabbing in Old River, tubing in Old River, played

tennis, rented a chair and umbrella on the beach, went scuba diving and swam in the heated pool, - this place is terrific.' -- Joe Coyne, Medina, Minn.

********************************************************

Our 1 Bedroom comfortably sleeps two in the king size bed and a queen sized sofa bed is in the living area.

Ideally, this 1 bedroom 1.5 bath condo is most comfortably enjoyed by a couple or small family.

This 1 bedroom unit includes a full kitchen with all dining accessories, and all towels, linens, pillows, and blankets are provided.

********************************************************

'I walked in the door to the condo, and simply said 'wow,

this place is right next to heaven - the views are awesome!'

- - Katie Maia, Denver, Colorado

*********************************************************

In addition to the multiple on-site amenities of Lei Lani, and the luxurious accommodations of the unit, Orange Beach and Perdido Key is a vacation dream for you and your family.

Recommended area restaurants include Tacky Jack's, LuLu's, Cosmos, Live Bait, as well as the many restaurants featured at The Warf. Several hamburger, pizza and Bar-B-Q locations are also nearby. If local music and bar action is your thing, the famous Florabama is an easy walk (less than 8/10ths of a mile) so you can drink and enjoy without worrying about driving.

About Keith & Karen Donaldson

Karen and I purchased this condo because we love the beach. Karen loves to sit on the beach and have a nice adult beverage while talking to friends and family, I enjoy scuba diving, boating and golf. We both enjoy the sunset while sipping a glass of wine. While we are happy to rent, we are equally happy when not rented to use and enjoy ourselves. Please come and enjoy a little slice of heaven that we enjoy as often as we can. If you want information on activities or what to do or any question about the condo or renting it, please call - we are more than happy to help!

Keith & Karen Donaldson purchased this condo in 2008

Why Keith & Karen Donaldson chose Orange Beach

We chose Orange Beach because of the beautiful white beaches, the many activities close by, the boat dock in the back and the closeness to Floribama. Combine these aminities with the fact the condo is only 3 1/2 hours from home and it makes the perfect retreat for us.

What makes this condo unique

Karen and I are both active so we enjoy a wide range of activities such as sunning on the beach, swimmining in one of the 3 pools, playing tennis, biking along the shore and in the nearby State park, scuba diving, boating, water skiing and tubing. We also enjoy dining out as well as a wonderfully cooked meal (Karen is a terrific cook) with a great bottle of wine while watching the sunset.

Clean and adequate

  • 4 of 5

The condo is as described. It is clean and convenient to shops and restaurants. However, the building itself is old and parking is very limited. If you leave for dinner, you may come back to find nowhere to park.

The owner was very responsive when we could not get the key code to work upon our arrival.

Cute condo with BEAUTIFUL view!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in June 2017 for our first family vacation with our 10 month old son. Everything was clean, updated, and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and utensils. The bed was comfortable and there was enough room to keep our son's pack 'n play in the bedroom with us. Our favorite spot was the patio, watching and listening to the waves. The view is perfect! It was a little cloudy/rainy our first couple days but we still had a great time at the beach and pool - both were just a short walk downstairs. We found it easy to get to and from restaurants from this location. We made great memories here. We didn't want to leave at the end of the week! We look forward to coming back to Lei Lani 206!

Perfect for a couple or small family. Very close to the sand.

  • 4 of 5

If this was a rating just for the condo, I would have given 5 stars. But it's about the whole experience, including the whole property. The things that made this rating a 4 are out of the condo owner's control. The condo was very nice. Perfect for a family of 4, which we are. However, parking was horrendous the first 2 days. Take into consideration it was Memorial Day weekend. The parking lot is very small and I don't think it could accommodate everyone if the property is full. The office was closed for the holiday so I'm sure parking was not strictly enforced, like I said, out of Keith's hands. The property does not allow "tents" in front of the property on the beach. I'm from Texas and we call what they call "tents" canopies. With that being said, the actual condo was very nice. Third floor, very close to the sand, and a gorgeous beachfront view. It was very close to Steamers, which is our favorite place to eat, and you could walk to Cobalt if you had to. Communicating with Keith was very easy via email, the home away app, and even over the phone. We very much enjoyed our week there and if it is just my family going again, we would definitely stay there again.

Close and convenient.

  • 4 of 5

So close and convenient. Beautiful and quiet. Will definitely return. Only down side is sleep sofa mattress is really like springs and very uncomfortable. King in master is very comfortable so if 2 can share a bed this is a great property.

Owner's Response: Hi Penny: We're glad you liked our "beautiful and quiet" beach. Our listing suggests that our condo is best suited for couples and/or small families. Sofa beds are typically not as comfortable as a traditional mattress but are usually a great option for kids. We're looking forward to your next visit.
